By Zahra McClendon
April, one of the best months of the year, is always full or exciting colors and oldies but newies trends. When you think of spring: pastels colors, ankle length dresses and waist line hair comes to mind, right? Right! Well these three ladies have made their way to the top of 2017 spring edition, and it just began. First we have Bravo TV and Cream of Nature beauty ambassador Africa Miranda with self titled line Beauty by Africa Miranda, and it’s a reason why she is number one on MY list. Beauty rule number one, you MUST have healthy skin, it’s the first thing people see.
Taking care of your skin is the key to flawlessness. And for women of color it is more important that we protect our melanin because we wear it the best. Everyone needs to wear a sunscreen moisturizer and SWEAR by it. That lowers our chances of skin cancer and decrease the chance of age spots and wrinkles. Ashley has created a product that erases all fear of aging infused with vitamin c, Marcacuja oil and Cupuacu butter that nourishes and brightens the skin all while replacing fatty acids which also gives you the subtle and youth appearance. Facial elixir is pushing through as number one because of the almost perfect results. Leaving your skin moisturized and with a youthful glow, your bound to cut your make up time in half by wanting to naturally show off your flawless skin. And to follow up with that flawless skin make up and hair go hand and hand. Owner of the Glamatory, located in the Vinings area in Atlanta, Georgia and makeup artist Mimi Johnson and Indique Hair Gabrielle Joffie are definitely my go to next when it comes to looking and feeling good. If I had an interview with heaven, they would be my glam squad. There are so many different trends and styles that we all try to break our necks to follow. Matt lips, cat eyes, contour, and don’t even get me started on eyebrows. It’s too much at times. You can’t even go up the street without feeling the pressure of someone seeing you off beat.
Well theses ladies help bring some relief in the everyday anxiety attacks. The trend less is more is starting to really take its form this year. Though it was always implied, dramatic looks were still being highly influenced. Nicki Minaj and Lady Gaga were both worldly known for doing the most, but even these two ladies have took the Subtle look and they are even more beautiful then before. Mimi Johnson helps bring you to your sexy natural self by showing you on her blog, and you can follow her via social media @mimijonline for Instagram and mimijizzle on Youtube.
Now Gabrielle has some of the BEST hair extensions I have seen. Nice shine, luscious body and texture and has lengths for days. There is no greater feeling then to having good hair. No matter if it’s yours or someone else’s, if it’s on our head and looks good, it feels good. Having a beautiful mane plays a huge part in a woman’s self esteem and Gabrielle takes it up a notch. With different textures like Bounce Beach Wave, SEA Fiji Curl and Bali Straight, which is your bound to feeling invincible.
