Greetings!!!

Hello Glams, It's been a while since I've posted. So many things has changed in my life and I am excited as well as overwhelmed. So for starters, I have a beautiful baby girl. So now I am a mother of 3 GIRLS Yes!!!! LOL I named her Desire Not Desiree' it reads just like it's spelled Desire Ma'Kia White. I tell you going from 1to 2 kids was a breeze for me but going from 2 to 3 is a BIG difference!
I hadn't been posting or putting up videos on my YouTube channel because time is really against me right now and I am working around Desire's schedule. My hands are always full and it's taking me some time to come up with a system to manage everything without losing my mind. Being the wife of an offshore welder means spending a lot of time maintaining your family alone. Any who, so on top of this I have been holding on to this passion of makeup and if you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, I've been posting pictures of different looks. So if you haven't checked out my page on either site, please do so.
I have been trying to manage my time because God has blessed me with some ideas and opportunities. For starters, I am beginning to put myself out to become a freelance makeup artist. I've been getting request from people in my area always asking me to do their makeup. Also, I am launching an online boutique for plus size women, so all my curvy divas please stay tuned for TAJ Beauty Emporium!!

New Brushes!

Hey Glams, I am so excited about this post. One thing about it, You can never have too many brushes! Bh Cosmetics have come out with a new brush set. I was minding my own business when Traycee77 on Instagram posted a pic of the new brush set. I just had to order. I'm a sucker for packaging and I like the colors of the set as well. LOL
They were doing a deal for the brush set it was less than $20.00! You can't beat it with a stick. LOL I'll be sure to give you loves a review on these brushes after I get some use out of them.

ELF cosmetics 2013 Disney Villians collection

Hi Glams, so I  was looking on YouTube and came across a video by NIYA0302 where she was announcing that elf's 2013 Disney look books were out. HELLOO!! I didn't even know about this collection period! LOL so I went researching and found that last year, ELF had look books that included a quad of 6 shadows, lip liner, eye primer, mascara, and a pair of eye lashes. There were four look books and each book had a Disney villain illustrated on the front cover. The eye shadows represented that villain and there were step by step instructions on how to achieve that particular villain's look. Why didn't I know about this. LOL I was so impress with the look of the books, I went searching for last years. Because they are limited edition and only sold in Walgreens I had no luck. I went on Amazon and they had two of the books for 59.99! they are sold for 9.99 so you know I wasn't going that route. Well, I gave up and started looking in the Walgreens in my area for this years edition and wasn't able to find it. NOT ALL WALGREENS WILL HAVE IT. I went to elf 's website and searched Disney villain and found that if you put your zip code in, it'll tell you what Walgreens in your area that will have it.
Of course 9 o'clock at night I'm heading to this particular Walgreens and found that they aren't getting them until October 5th. I can't wait! also this year each villain has a look book of just eyelashes and makeup bags. OMG I am so hyped!
Check the website to see what Walgreens in your area will be carrying them. Remember They are limited edition so it won't be sold all year round.
Oh! I forgot to mention that the manager at the Walgreens had two of the look books from last year in the back, and sold them to me for the 9.99 price!
Well Thanks for stopping in today,
Until next time!

Deals to start off fall!

Hello Glams! Thanks for stopping by today.... I wanted to post and brag on a great deal I came across and almost missed to start off my fall makeup hauls. BH Cosmetics has a few new items that you should definitely check out ASAP. 3 new palettes have been added to the site: "Galaxy Chic" which is a baked eye shadow palette that comes with 18 shades. The name of the palette speaks for itself. right now it's 39% off at 14.00. There's also the "Eyes on the 60's" palette that comes with 30 shades and is 51% off at 9.95 and last is the "Take me to Brazil" palette that has 28 shades and is 51% off at 9.95! Great deals right? But that's not it....
BH Cosmetics also has new bushes that come as duos. You've missed the deal that I caught at the last minute, which was all 6 for 20.00 but the duos are still marked down right now at 51% off at 4.95 each. I also ordered some nail polishes that I think is new to the site. I don't ever remember them selling nail polish but right now you can get either the "flirty collection" which is more of your  bright colors or the "mystery collection" which is more n the darker side. This is the collection I ordered that I thought would be good for fall. either collection, you can get them right now for 14.95 and it's a set of 10 colors in each collection. I know, I know...... don't thank me now. LOL
I can't wait until my package arrives so I can post a haul on my YouTube channel. I will be sure to share it on the blog as well.
Thanks again for stopping in with me today!
Until next time, you have been glamified!

Fall is Here!!!!!!

Hello Glams! I am so excited that we are approaching Fall! I love this time of year. This most obvious reason is the change in makeup. For those of you that weren't comfortable with the bright and bold colors of the summer, perhaps this change will be more wearable for you. Fall brings in your more darker colors as well as your natural and neutral trends that you can rock with a darker color lippie. If you follow me on Facebook (Taj Mone') or Instagram (tfoxy12003) I've already started posting pictures. For those of you that follow me on YouTube, I will be posting videos VERY SOON on these looks. I've been delayed since my laptop has been in the shop but I will be back up and running shortly. LOL
I'll also make sure that I upload a few of them to the blog along with some posting of my latest hauls and deals I've come across for the fall, so stay tuned! LOL
Thanks you Glams for checking in today!
Until next time!

Skin Tone Changes?

Hey Glams,
I thought it would be good to focus today's post on skin tone changes since that's exactly what I am going through right now. Normally during the summer your skin MAY change because of your exposure to the sun, which causes you to go searching for a darker foundation. Well, in my case I am having double the trouble because moving back home to Louisiana where it is HOT, I have been exposed to more sunlight than usual. Plus, when I am pregnant my skin complexion gets darker and doesn't change back until after I deliver :( So with that being said I had no choice but to change my normal color foundation for the time being.
I must say I don't like it. LOL but hey what's a girl to do. So if your normal foundation is looking a little off this summer, that could be why. Try going to the next shade and see if that works for you. You may even find that mixing your normal shade with a little of the darker shade when you apply may work as well, if the next shade is a tad darker and your normal shade is a little off key.
On the photo below, I had to go to a darker shade of foundation, but I am still Glamified! Excuse the brightness I took it with my phone but you get the picture. LOL

Until next time!

I'm Baaaack!!!

Hi Glams, It's been a minute since my last post. Sorry I've been gone so long. I found out in May that I was pregnant and the first trimester for me was horrible. I became so sick that I was literally in bed through the first 3 months. Every time I would attempt to get up I would get sick. On top of all that I was moving back home to Louisiana.
It's great to say that all is well now. I am 5 months and other than the swollen ankles, I'm fine. Lol I am now back in Louisiana and comfortable. I haven't been recording videos on my YouTube channel as well so for those of you Glams that are subscribed, I will be getting back to that as well. If you follow me on facebook or instagram, you've seen a few looks here and there that I posted. Hope you guys are still with me.

Until next time!

The Color Wheel

Hello Glams,
The summer is coming and it's time for you to break out the colorful looks when getting glamified. If you are new to the color scene, there is a tool to help you coordinate your colors to help them blend well and that is the color wheel.
The color wheel shows you what colors compliment each other and it works really well. If you haven't heard of it, you should google it.
It's beneficial to everyone. If you are a new makeup artist that wants to get creative with lots of colors, this can help. If you are trying to do your own makeup with lots of summer colors, this can help!
The Color Wheel, shows relationships between primary colors, secondary colors,complementary colors, etc.
Thanks to Sir Isaac Newton! LOL
To get yours handy you can shop on Google, Amazon, or eBay for sure to purchase you a color wheel.
depending on what kind you get, they can range from $4.99 - $29.99.
Happy May everyone!
