Celebrating Vintage and Black Beauties of the 90’s for Black History Month
Categories: Makeup Tutorials


What do vintage black celebrities Diana Ross, Lena Horne, Dorothy Dandridge, Eartha Kitt, and Josephine Baker (and honorary mention Janet Jackson) all have in common?

They’re ALL going to be honored/featured on the Makeup Game On Point beauty channel!

I am so excited to announce that in honor of Black History Month I will be honoring 5 vintage black beauties and one 90’s diva by recreating some of their notable makeup looks. This will be a collective video series of 6 makeup tutorials.

I haven’t been this excited for a video series since I did the Aaliyah makeup series in 2012 which did really really well, so I decided to do it again!

Who is your favorite black vintage bombshell? Will 6 beauties be enough or do you think I should feature more? Sound off in the comments below!

Which sweater type is your favorite? The fitted v neck, the oversized boyfriend sweater, or the flirty sweater? With this up and down California weather I find having a little bit of both in my wardrobe so just the trick.

All of the items featured can be found on my Markkit lookbook!

Hope everyone is having a fabulous week thus far. Sorry this blog post and video was so late! I spent the entire weekend drilling at my new duty station, Camp Pendleton. I guess the mini San Diego getaway wasn’t half bad though so I can’t really complain!

On and another friendly reminder, don’t forget about my makeup giveaway!

Still trying to get a head count of however many of you planning to attend IMATS this year! Sound off in the comments down below :)

And this just happened….
Categories: Makeup Tutorials

Soooo this just happened today! This was the big news I talked about (but didn’t really talk about it) a few weeks ago via the LilPumpkinPie05 instagram. This is a 26 year old dream/fantasy I never thought I’d actually accomplish. You know how when you’re like 9 and people ask what you wanna be when you grow up? Yea, lol I knew from the jump. How many people get to actually say that? I already mentally prepared to receive this long before I took this exam today! Pray and ask God if it’s yours FIRST always. If he says it’s yours then you have NO reason to worry! This morning I already had pre-written text messages telling my family and friends I passed this exam, before I even took it. And last night just before I went to bed I told myself I already HAVE my license, I just need to take the exam first and then they’ll give it to me! See what I did there? Believe in yourself always and the rest will follow suit! Speak it into existence! But you actually have to believe it!!

Attention errrrbody: As of today I am officially a licensed cosmetologist in the state of California!!!!! Qualified to operate weapons, makeup brushes, and now shears

 

Thank you to everyone who prayed for me and helped make this happen!!!
