SOME DAYS I WONDER WHAT IF I NEVER WENT NATURAL. FOR THOSE WHO HAVEN’T EXPERIENCED THE BC FIRST HAND, THEY CAN’T RELATE. AFTER I CUT MY HAIR I KNEW THERE WAS NO TURNING BACK, I WAS SCARED AND FELT THE LONELIEST IN MY LIFE AT THAT TIME. THERE WAS NO ONE IN MY LIFE I FELT AS THOUGH COULD RELATE WITH ME OR HOW I WAS FEELING. FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE I WAS COMPLETELY LONELY. I TALKED TO MYSELF MOST DAYS AND BARELY EVER LEFT THE HOUSE. IN THOSE FIRST TWO MONTHS AFTER CUTTING MY HAIR OFF I LEARNED SO MUCH ABOUT MYSELF AND CHARACTER. IT WAS ALSO THE PIVOTAL MOMENT IN MY LIFE WHERE I LEARNED TO LOVE MYSELF, NAKED. NAKED AS IN NOTHING TO HIDE BEHIND. I HAD NOTHING TO HIDE ANYMORE, IF YOU LOOKED AT ME YOU COULD SEE RIGHT THROUGH ME. I MISS THAT PHASE IN MY LIFE, I FEEL AS THOUGH THERE ARE STILL SOME THINGS I DID NOT LEARN. AFTER CUTTING OFF MY HAIR I LEARNED TO FALL IN LOVE WITH ME. IT WAS THE MOST AMAZING TIME IN MY LIFE. A TIME OF SELF-REFLECTION, SELF-ASSESSMENT, AND SELF-DISCOVERY. NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS I WILL NEVER RETURN BACK TO A RELAXER EVER AGAIN, I DID NOT COME THIS FAR TO LOVING ME JUST TO LET GO TO LEARN ALL OVER AGAIN. It has been one of the best decisions I’ve made thus far.
What’s the one makeup item most girls never leave home without? Lipstick, lip gloss, a lip stain or whatever you choose to place on your lips. Just recently the FBG Tumblr page(source linkhttp://forbrowngirls.tumblr.com/post/14449144125/what-are-some-of-your-favorite-lipstick-colors) took a poll on what lip shade best complements all beautiful hues of our brown skin. Firstly, let me state women of color can rock any color of lipstick, but the key is to find what color compliments YOUR skin tone. No longer should we stick to applying only safe and comfortable colors because truth is brown skin looks amazing with red, purple, pink and even blue lip shades. Below is a list created from the input of those who participated in the lipstick poll and also a few of my personal favorites. Enjoy!
