Kim Kardashian West is being mommy shamed again… This time for doing what all moms do – allow their daughter’s to straighten their hair when they reach a certain milestone. That’s right, KKW is being shamed for allowing North West to step out with a straight ponytail on her 5th birthday Friday, June 15th.
I remember the first time I got my hair straightened (with a hot comb, before I gave into the creamy crack) it was for my 10th birthday and I begged my mom to let me wear it lose with a headband instead of in pigtails like a little girl. I was experiencing my rite of passage as black girl and so is Northie.
Recently, I took my curly-haired 4-year-old daughter to Milk and Cookies Kids Spa to get a braided hairstyle and in order for this to happen, the beautician had to wash, conditon, and then blow dry the hair straight so that it was easier to braid. My baby girl loved her hair straight and I would do it again when she’s much older because I love her curls. Selfish, I know…
Kim straightening North’s hair is no big deal to me because the girls in this family are known for their slick, straight, mermaid-like hair.
Let Northie enjoy being a 5-year-old and leave Kim alone! She’s doing what mommies do for their little girls. I would do the same!
Summer officially starts in less than 10 days and I am so excited to look like a summer goddess and do summer activities. Every season has makeup trends and with the launch of celebrity beauty brands and beauty influencers experimenting with different looks, these trends have become an essential part of a makeup lovers life.
The summer makeup looks that are trending right now include bold draping like Rihanna does with her Fenty Beauty highlighters and eye shadows and the barely there bronzer look.
Below are the five makeup looks I want to try ASAP:
1. Shock Shadow is the biggest summer makeup look right now and is a favorite among makeup artist and celebs. Just add one bold, neon, or metallic shadow to your lids and your all set to go!
2. Bold Draping comes from the 1980s but, today it’s bigger, bolder, and brighter than ever before. I will take a page from Rihanna and use Fenty Beauty to achieve her look below.
3. The Red Lip is always classic and is my go-to lip when I want to look or feel extra spicy!
4. Sunset Eyes are perfect for beach days – I feel like my skin tone looks good with orange or warm tones of eye shadow so I cannot wait to try this trend.
5. Barely Any Bronzer
I be doing a follow-up post when I try these looks!
Bad Gal Ri Ri stunned in Baby Blue over the weekend at the NYC launch of her Fenty x Stance. She wore a baby blue silk Matthew Adams Dolan dress and matching Stalvey beauty case bag.
I am still trying to recover from the release of Fenty Beauty’s body shimmer and the lingerie launch but, the goods keep on coming from Ms. Robyn Rihanna Fenty.
The summer Fenty Beauty collection is here and it’s so shimmery, glittery, and beautiful – perfect for days at the beach, laying poolside, or hanging out at a summer party. I am loving the highlighter duos and I cannot wait to try out some different makeup looks. That “Rihanna Reign” just won’t let up – she’s going so hard and I love it!
