What’s your name + city you live in?

My name is Kaela Moore. I’m from Atlanta, Georgia but live in Tallahassee, Florida and attend Florida A&M University aka FAMU. Beauty is all about being comfortable in your own skin + having fun!

What are 2 beauty trends you’re loving this year?

Normally, I’m a minimalist when it comes to makeup. I always gravitate towards nudes or girly pink makeup looks. For 2019 I am looking forward to lots of color. I want to explore out my comfort zone and try more bold, careful, daring eye shadow looks.

If you had only 15 seconds to grab 3 beauty products, what would they be?

Chap stick. Clear or sheer pink Lip gloss. Lash glue if I’m wearing lashes. Literally in that order.

Beauty inspo is everything! Who’s your ultimate beauty icon + why?

For makeup my favorite beauty icons are MakeUpShayla and AaliyahJay. Their youtube tutorials are always thorough and they were the first mua’s closest to my skin tone that I looked up to. For hair my ultimate beauty icon is NaturalNeiicey. I’ve watched her in the beginning of her hair journey and my hair journey. Her hair texture and curl pattern was similar to mine so it helped me throughout my hair journey.

Getting ready for class can be fun but stressful if you’re in a time crunch, what’s one beauty must-have that lives in your bag?

I always have lip gloss and mascara in my bag. Those are my two must haves every day. 

What’s your number 1 beauty rule?

My number 1 beauty rule is to be authentically you. Be authentically you in any hairstyle, makeup look, or outfit your in. Your inner confidence enhances your look and always remember another woman’s beauty is not the absence of your own.

What’s your name + city you live in?
My name is Nia Lackland, but I go by “KeepingUpWithNi”. I currently attend Clark Atlanta University in Atlanta, GA… however, I live in Chicago part time.

Beauty is all about being comfortable in your own skin + having fun! What are 2 beauty trends you’re loving this year?
I am really loving the beauty trends of this year! This year has been all about embracing your natural beauty. I love the trend of natural eyebrows rather than the “ombre” eyebrows that were popular in the recent past. Also, I love the inner eye glow with gold eyeshadow or highlighter. It just brightens up and brings more attention to your eyes.

If you had only 15 seconds to grab 3 beauty products, what would they be?
OMG! I would definitely grab foundation, concealer and natural hair curling cream! I just think these are the basic essentials for a cute quick look.

Beauty inspo is everything! Who’s your ultimate beauty icon + why?
My ultimate beauty icon has to be Alissa Ashley. Alissa is so relatable and humble. I truly enjoy watching her videos and being able to follow her journey as she expands her brand. I love the fact that Alissa stresses that she is a regular person but she also knows her value.

Getting ready for class can be fun but stressful if you’re in a time crunch, what’s one beauty must-have that lives in your bag?
My beauty must-have is definitely lip gloss. I CANNOT leave my house without my lip gloss, it just makes me feel pretty.

What’s your number 1 beauty rule?
My number 1 beauty rule is literally one word, versatility. I love to switch things up and try new styles. I try not to wear the same style for a long time. Otherwise, I would get bored and tired of my look.

I don’t really follow beauty trends but two that I love and use are natural/boy beat and lip gloss.

Beauty inspo is everything! Who’s your ultimate beauty icon + why?

I can’t say really choose between Zendaya and YouTube Alissa Ashley. They really show the two parts of me the natural side and then the more glam side.

Getting ready for class can be fun but stressful if you’re in a time crunch, what’s one beauty must-have that lives in your bag?

My concealer has to be in my bag because I don’t really get much sleep in the first place.

What’s your number 1 beauty rule?

The only real rule I follow is what you put into your body is important, so eating right is gonna help make my skin and hair healthier.

Beauty Diary x Haley!

Scroll through the beauty diary of Atlanta based teen blogger, Haley!

What’s your name + city do you live in?

My name is Haley Cencere and I currently live in Atlanta, Georgia.

Beauty is all about being comfortable in your own skin + having fun! What are 2 beauty trends you’re loving this year?

One trend that I am loving to see is how women are now more comfortable wearing their natural curls. Many women on social media have embraced their natural hair as well as their natural face and I am living for it. Beauty can be seen in many shapes and forms and I believe this trend is truly spreading that message. Many celebrities are now posting bare face pictures and it is truly inspiring. I am also in love with glossy eyelid trend that has been on seen on celebrity such as SZA and Kylie Jenner. I am in love with the effect that it gives to their makeup, it simply gorgeous!

If you had only 15 seconds to grab 3 beauty products, what would they be?

I would definitely grab lash glue, my favorite foundation and definitely a moisturizer like shea butter or cocoa butter.

Beauty inspo is everything! Who’s your ultimate beauty icon + why?

My ultimate beauty icon is supermodel Duckie Thot, she is beautiful and is always stylish. She has been a rising supermodel this year and I believe her imagine inspires many girls of a darker complexion to embrace their melanin. In my experience growing up as a darker complexion often times, I found people addressing my beauty being prefix the terms of you’re a beautiful dark skin young lady. Instead of just saying I was beautiful.

Getting ready for class can be fun but stressful if you’re in a time crunch, what’s one beauty must-have that lives in your book bag?

Lip Gloss is always a must have at all times. I will NEVER leave the house without my lip gloss because it is an easy touch up for a plain face or for a made up face. I am in love with MAC’s glass or you could go to your local beauty supply store for lip gloss.

What’s your number 1 beauty rule?

Embrace your truth and natural beauty. Find beauty in your insecurities. I have always wanted to spread this message to woman all over the world because I lived in my own shadow for years not embracing my unique beauty mark. I have a birthmark on the right side of my face that covers the entire right side of my face and I used to try to hide it by covering it up at a young age. The day that I embraced my beauty mark was the day the world around me embraced it and I am now known for having this very unique trait. I stand for a platform that promotes “ find beauty in what makes you uncomfortable or different because that is simply what makes you, you.”

2018 has been a year full of new and super exciting trends! The first beauty trend that I’m absolutely loving is the all inclusive foundation lines that are coming out. It’s very important that big makeup companies help women and men of all skin colors feel beautiful and I love that a lot of them are including lighter and darker shades.

What city do you live in?
I live in Ocean, which is a town right next to the Jersey Shore.

Beauty is all about being comfortable in your own skin + having fun! What are 2 beauty trends you’re loving this year?

I’m loving the bare minimal look that everyone is into now, where it’s just your eyebrows and a lipstick.

If you had only 15 seconds to grab 3 beauty products, what would they be?

That’s hard. I would grab my Maybelline eyebrow powder, a nude lipstick, and a gold highlight.

Beauty inspo is everything! Who’s your ultimate beauty icon + why?

I actually have two ultimate beauty icons – Zendaya and Yara Shahidi. I love them as people and everything they stand for. They always rock their natural hair and their natural beauty, which I love. I believe that natural beauty is the best beauty and they represent that in an amazing way.

Getting ready for class can be fun but stressful if you’re in a time crunch, what’s one beauty must-have that lives in your book bag?

Vaseline without a doubt. Vaseline is my substitute for chapstick. Plus you can honestly use Vaseline for anything.
 
What’s your number 1 beauty rule?

Do what you like. It is so important for girls to ignore the comments and opinions of others and just do what makes them happy. If you like to wear a full face everyday, then go for it. If you’re more of a do your makeup for special occasions only, then that’s completely fine. If you want to wear wigs because you don’t feel like doing your hair, then go ahead. Society shouldn’t determine how we take care of ourselves.

What city do you live in? Roselle, NJ

If you had only 15 seconds to grab 3 beauty products, what would they be?
Eyebrow pencil, lip gloss, and BB cream

Beauty inspo is everything! Who’s your ultimate beauty icon + why?
My ultimate beauty icon is Rihanna. She’s drop dead gorgeous and could probably make a trash bag look good. From reviews I’ve heard about Fenty Beauty, I know it’s diverse, affordable, and very high-end. I haven’t had a chance to get my hands on Fenty Beauty yet, but I know I must!

You did an empowering vlog focusing on how black girls + women are stereotyped. How do you continue to embrace who you are + confidently love yourself?
Being a young black women in a society constantly telling me I’m not good enough pushes me to want to do better. I know my brown skin is beautiful and I have to remind myself I am not the vast stereotypes held against black women and black beauty. When I posted that video I was afraid of holding the stereotypes as the “angry black woman”, but I knew I had to speak my truth no matter how many views I received or how many people felt that stereotype fit my persona. Loving myself is loving others and teaching black women around me their beauty and strength they have. I know myself and black women are destined to take over the world and inspire people worldwide.

Hair can be such a fun accessory! What’s your fave hairstyle to rock + why?
One thing about me is that I always like to keep my hair very simple. I would say my favorite hairstyle is a sleek side part low ponytail. I like this look because while my hair is tamed and neat, the side part adds a fierce component to the look. Although I am ashamed to say I don’t really like unleashing my curls in a fro, twist out, or braid out as much as I used to a few years ago, I can say I have always been natural and truly love and embrace my curls. I prefer natural hair over straight hair any day.

Being a girl on-the-go can be stressful, what’s one beauty must-have that lives in your bag?
One beauty must-have that lives in my bag is lip gloss. If I leave my house without lip gloss in my bag, I have a mini breakdown. Chapped lips is a no go for me!

If you’re easing your way into makeup, where’s a good place to start? Eyes? Lips?
The best place to start when starting makeup is the eyes. Start off with trying different mascaras and work your way into using eyeliner first and then eye shadows. One tip I can give to girls starting to get into makeup is that it takes practice, and it’ll most likely look a little crazy the first time (trust me I know)! Don’t compare yourself to these experienced makeup gurus!

What’s your number 1 beauty rule?
My number one beauty rule is to BLEND, BLEND, BLEND! Blend your concealer, blend your contour, blend your eye shadow, just blend everything! I promise you’ll thank me and love me after you take that advice!
