[VIDEO] Everyday Makeup Routine: Affordable Products Under $65

Hi beauties! I hope you had a fabulous holiday break. If you’re anything like me, then you’re pretty much on-the-go very often. In between my 9-5pm and my ventures outside of work, I don’t really have time during the week to do a FULL makeup routine (unless I’m planning on attending an event or something after work). With that being said, I like to keep it fairly simple – doing the basics like brows, mascara, etc. So, this is why I’m bring my everyday makeup routine to you! Also, all of the products are very affordable, which is always a plus in my opinion. If you’re looking for a simple routine that you can do during the week, then check it out.

Melanited Magic: Tuxedos, Toast & Trap

This past weekend I explored New York a bit, and networked for an amazing cause. A few girlfriends and I went to the Tuxedos, Toast and Trap Brunch at The Madison Square Tavern hosted by The New Stereotype. If you aren’t familiar with The New Stereotype, then you should be. This group of gals and guys come from diverse background to redefine the image of a black man/woman. Diversity is highlighted in every aspect — from career paths to skin tones, everything is built to elevate and empower the misconstrued imagery of being a hardworking black woman and man in this world.

Not only was this event surrounded by so much positivity and love, but there was tons of food and bottomless mimosa’s involved that topped off the festivities of the day!
