My Morning Skincare Routine

I get compliments on my skin all the time and one of my nicknames is Snow White cause of my fair skin, black hair, and red lips. I recently met a very sweet woman walking near me in the mall and we chatted about our tattoos, how pushy some skin care vendors are and more. This sweet lady complimented me on my skin and look so I decided to share my skin care routine, Here is how I do my skincare in the morning. I decided to do a video on my youtube channel besides writing and posting here because I switch up my morning routine.

For my Hair I used at 15 inch Black to Blue Ombre hair extension piece. I got mine at SOHO Fashion but you can find a variety of hair extensions at many places including online. I also decorated my hair with two beautiful aqua and turquoise jeweled pair of hair combs. I fell in love with these instantly.

MAC Cosmetics “Rocky Horror Picture Show” special edition

MAC cosmetics is one of my favorite brands, especially for lipstick, and recently I was able to find makeup from the special “Rocky Horror Picture Show,” edition. This collection first came out to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the film. I love love love the movie and was excited to stumble upon the makeup online.

I bought two lipsticks from the “Rocky Horror” collection, one called “Oblivion,” and the other one is of course called, “Frank N’ Furter.” Both shades are sexy as hell and are pretty much the same exact hues from the actual film. Plus the packaging is awesome. If you’re interested in checking out this makeup edition from MAC, definitely go online to find it. Since it was a special limited collection, the makeup might be a bit more pricey than normal, but to me it’s worth it.
