I just had to say that your blog is GREAT! I love it! It's filled with so many great makeup tips! I had to follow! How did you learn how to blend colors when you are applying your eyeshadows? I have difficulty with that.
Lol I use my fingers instead of a brush. And thankyou lol :)
ughhhh Tyra has been wearing this hair for some events now like blahhhh!!! i hate it. it looks like her hair after she worked out… it makes her dress just look like a dress this is phuckingfab fail because of the horrible hair… and then a opera? why would you wear that to that event ugh
Nike MAG sneakers. The jacket, valued at $1,745 makes for quite the splurge, but it doesn’t even compare to the sneakers, inspired by Back to the Future 2, currently being bid on from $3,550 to $9,000 a pair
shittt! lol thats school & they are ugly …well to me they are….. lol but boys and they sneaks lol :)
I love makeup and to perfect my lil hobby on my face I go to youtube for tutorials and one of my favorite channels is lipsh0ck I love all her looks that she creates and her eyebrow tutorial is my favorite of all time. So all my makeup loves check out her youtube and read this interview I know it’s a lil lengthy but she gave me some awesome response.!
lipshock: I “officially” started wearing making when I was a junior in high school, so I believe I was around 16 years old. My mother wasn’t too thrilled about it though — we had many arguments about whether or not I should be wearing makeup at such a young age. To this day, I’m not even sure if I agree with her because at that time, makeup was such an escape for me. Dare I say it, it helped boost my confidence a bit. The question of whether or not I will let my daughter wear makeup at that age is clear — yes, I would. Everything in moderation. =)
Phuckingfab: how did your channel start?
lipshock: I first had a YouTube beauty channel almost four years ago when the beauty scene on YouTube was completely different to what it is now. I was one of the original black women to start doing videos and I remember being so nervous putting up my first video. I was pushed into doing videos by some awesome women from a makeup forum I used to frequent quite regularly and because of their support, I started doing the videos a little more regularly. Unfortunately, the whole YT thing got a little out of control, so I had to step away.
Four years down the road, here I am again and I am loving it. The fact that my old subscribers actually remember who I was and continue to support me is incredible. Not to mention, all of the support and positivity I get from new people who have just now discovered me. I must admit, their comments and emails really keep me going when I want to give up and call it a day.
So, to all of you, thank you so much for being so kind to me! xxx
Phuckingfab: your favorite look?
lipshock: My go-to favorite look that I can do in 10 minutes flat without thinking is thick winged eyeliner, full lashes, and bright lips (whether matte or glossy). It is simple, super easy, and looks amazing with any type of outfit. Very universally flattering look on everyone as well.
Phuckingfab: do you want an career in cosmetics?
lipshock: I can definitely say without hesitation and doubt that I do not want a career in cosmetics. I went down that road, moreso towards the retail end of the spectrum, during my senior year of university and it was not as fun as I thought it would be. From my time in retail, I did dip into freelancing away from my retail cosmetics job at M.A.C. Cosmetics but I really couldn’t find the time away from my studies and work to fully commit to it. The fun of it really started to get drained from me. So much so that I went almost 2 years without wearing a stitch of makeup. From all of this, I learned that makeup is merely a hobby for me. It is not something that I want to do professionally or develop a career in.
Phuckingfab: favorite brands?
lipshock: There are far too many to list but off the top of my head: Make Up For Ever, Urban Decay, NARS, M.A.C. Cosmetics, Bare Escentuals/Bare Minerals, Wet ‘n Wild, Revlon, L’OREAL, and Maybelline.
Phuckingfab: favorite products?
lipshock: Again far too many to list but I cannot live without my Urban Decay Primer Potion, M.A.C. Eyebrow Pencil in Spiked and Strut, my M.A.C. Mineralized Skinfinish Natural in Dark or Deep Dark, or my Make Up Forever Mat Velvet+ Foundation.
Phuckingfab: any donts?
lipshock: I try not to get too bogged down with “makeup rules”, as it really is meant to be fun but I cannot stress enough that ladies, please put down the black hair bonding glue when applying your false lashes. *cringes* #1 Makeup Pet Peeve right there.
Phuckingfab: whats so great about doing makeup?
lipshock: There are many reasons as to why applying makeup is great but for me, it is a creative outlet that allows me to express myself in different ways on different days. That is honestly what makeup application boiled down to its finest, purest form is to me. A creative outlet that is never-ending, always evolving, and in constant motion.
any last words?
lipshock: Don’t be afraid to try new things and open up your mind to different looks when it comes to makeup. We all get stuck in a pattern and it’s hard to break out of it but that’s the great thing about makeup, it’s never stays the same. There are always new trends coming out there and each one can be tailored to fit your style and life. So, don’t be scared to slightly wing out your liner or slap on those drag queen lashes for the night or rock the obnoxiously bright pink or red lip. Experimentation is vital! But most importantly, have fun and good luck!
i dont think eating meat is a sin …. i like her hair tho
Genesis 9:2–3 (NIV)2 The fear and dread of you will fall upon all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air, upon every creature that moves along the ground, and upon all the fish of the sea; they are given into your hands 3 Everything that lives and moves will be food for you.

IF YOU SEE YOURSELF TELL SOMEBODY YOUR PHUCKINGFLY OR PHUCKINGFAB!
so last night i got inspired to write about fashion and some ignorance. i live in Memphis Tennessee. not really a glamorous place lol. we are known for Elvis, MLK dying here, basketball, blues, FedEx, and 1st 48 but no fashion. this is not New York but i love my city.. its my city duh lol and i like living here. im not one of those people who are rushing to get out and complain about the problems the city has, i want to make some changes! this is where i grew up were most of my 1st happened.
but the people that live here are strict to tradition, same ol same ol, majority rules…. you know where im coming from? i think its a southern thing to be honest i dont think they like change.
my city lacks individuality. we cant do anything unless the majority does…. so that brings in the fashion part.
they say college is where you find “yourself” well i guess i found myself lol I’ve always loved fashion always had the eye for the “weird” things lol
i got a job so got the funds to support my fashion habit. i dressed outside of my comfort zone and wayyyy out of my city’s comfort zone lol
i was doing something to be different. it was noticed when i went out like wtf she got on. people are so quick to turn their noses up and say that im weird or what i wear is ugly or my favorite one “i think im better”
lol at 1st i used to get pissed. lol but then after a while i took everything that someone said to me about my clothes positive… negative or not it went in my head all the same.
my friend Ryan said it the best: they all look the same and I personally like to be the elephant in the room or the stand out in the crowd
i don’t want anyone to stop dressing the way they dress. just stop dissing my way of dress, just because your lack education in what fashion really is.
to be honest they can continue to diss it lol. i’m the elephant in a room full of mice. i stand out real big and i’m not afraid to do what i want fashion wise.
I LOVE FASHION & I LOVE MY CITY I HOPE IT ALL COMES TOO ONE DAY! :)
my friend asked what i was wearing i said :A Fashion Surprise
doing a lil writing guys. :)
soooo this week was fashion night out; i missed it because i had class sad face like really sad face lol i wanted to go. i dont know anyone that went either :(
lol so to replace the attire for fashion night out i attended the southern heritage classic. the classic for all of you who dont know its a Memphis tradition, for over 20 years now! its a football game where TSU (Tennessee state university) & JSU ( Jackson state university) play every year in September. its a big deal lol just a bit everybody comes out Greeks some whites and a lot of blacks lol. tailgating all DAY!!! lol its funnnn.
but it can be RATCHET! just ghetto.com. it can be real wild. lol but to get down to it ….. this is what i wore & this random chick i saw on blackfashion.tumblr.com was my inspiration. loveee it! so its a copy look in a way lol
lol these folks at the classic…. smh hot mess.com with the outfits lol just wearing anything and then people that think their in fashion uhhh i did see some good stuff out there i really did. but people were talking about me soooo bad lol. i mean i was getting soooo MANY WTF LOOKS lol. people are so quick to turn their nose up at fashion that isnt their “norm” smh i hate that. i got a few people that said swag swag lol i got some cutes. i got asked if i was an AKA lol was i in a step show. lol but the looks just made me …. i dont know it was funny because i deff stood out. my pants were a loud color you saw me coming. & a girl with a bowtie lol wtf. lol i loved my look. i loved my outfit and all the attention i was getting. girls where whispering lol love it!
i like not doing what everyone else does i like taking risk. i like not being afraid. people try so hard to be “weird” thats in right now lol but no one really takes risk.
OK so in the previous post ……. (CLICK HERE) ……. i was tired of my previous hair soooo….. lol
i needed a change lol wash & flat iron & no perm still…. look i have enough for a ponytail lol didn’t know that … rocked the short for a few days
nowww im rocking that bob!! lol this is a outre velvet remi duby!! this is a number 2; closer to my hair color. its all ready layered lol no need to flat iron or cut ….. but it was too full in the back so i went to super cuts lol i love it because it looks like my hair. lol love it
so in the last post about my hair (click here to view!!!) i had put in new hair & cut it! for you guys who dont know im going natural. this is month two and because my hair is short im doing a quick weave for 3 1/2 weeks every month then a transition hair style then another quick weave & cutting an inch off every month
it wasnt to even during this pic but i was liking it.
i decided that i wanted to do this look that keke palmer had
so the process began …….
it was cute for like a few hours them i realized that the hair that was colored was dry. i washed it with neutralizing shampoo. styles with it were not working it dose not like my flat iron
i tried curling it ….. and i cut it some more with layers
now i just HATE it!!!
im soooooooooooo ready for October & my next hair lol
