I did not know that Essence was not Black Owned for the last ten years. But it’s good to know that they have been sold and are now once again Black Owned. What are your thoughts do you feel deceived?

Blue Candies took to the runway with its signature style of handmade couture crochet garments. But there were a few surprises. Blue Candies slayed the runway with custom jeans as well as a sexy lace number that awed the crowd.

The New MakeUp Craze

Do you contour your makeup or want to get started? What about color correcting?

If you have been keeping up with your favorite makeup perfectionists, and the beauty world in general then you will know about the new natural craze of contouring, which has gone wild on Instagram and the beauty industry.

The Kardashian clan helped usher in the contouring trend, making it a global phenomenon. We’re just starting to perfect our technique and already a new makeup craze is popping up: color correcting. It functions like contouring in that you draw on your face like an elementary school chalkboard. But rather than just focusing on light or dark areas, color correcting balances out the skin tone using opposite hues on the color wheel.

Orange counters dark under eye spots, green covers redness, yellow balances out any purple bruises and the list goes on. Foundation is applied after for a flawless finish. It’s a complicated method but if applied correctly the results are stunning.

And the best part about color correcting is you don’t have to do a full face of makeup to get results. A little bit of green to cover a red spot or yellow to conceal a zit will do the trick.
