#TT I don’t even know exactly how old I was, just know this is my only toddler pic. #fadedmemories #LookingAfffffff
Another bare minerals: no filter, no weave, hardly makeup (brows/lashes) and Dee pic. For a long time I felt I HAD to apply a full face to leave my house, now I feel more confident than ever knowing I’m happy in the skin I’m in! Who doesn’t love a natural woman? #skinprogress #ladieslovetheskinyourein
Friendly reminder that it is never okay to post a “revealing” or nude picture on the internet that was personally sent to you in private by someone unless you are given permission. No excuses.
or unless they have really small dicks and turn out to be scumbags. or unless a girl sends a nude to your boyfriend. there’s exceptions for everything.
(Better things happen for those who blah blah blah)
It’s one thing to quote something out of context but it’s another to diminish the virtue of patience.
Be ambitious but be smart.
lets play a game called ‘find a shade that would suitably match an African American or any person of any color different than white’. Very tired of white washing.
while there’s obviously a couple of shades for POC up here. there’s so so so so much whiteness. no one needs to wear make-up but anyone who wants to should have the option.
And even those that would work for POC are still on the light end.
Another thing I’ve noticed, which might be a microaggression, is that a lot of the darker skintones have food related names. The lighter shades will be stuff like beige, ivory, and nude (don’t get me started on the word nude), but the darker shades will be honey, chocolate, cocoa, caramel, etc.
If I wanted a caramel machiatto, I’d have just gone to Starbucks.
Sorry but I lol’ed, and you are very correct. Our shades usually have some sort of food attached to them, its annoying. They can take the time to find all these different names for beige but they can’t come up with a few names for brown?! Like maybe sienna, sepia, mahogany, bronze, sable…we come in a variety of brown shades and there are many ways to describe our skin tone without calling us chocolate or cafe au lait.
The drugstore is pretty much 50 Shades of Beige…
This is incredible
It really works trust me.

i’m watching Extreme Couponing and i just saw a woman rack up a charge of over $1000 and then her coupon game was so fucking raw by the end of it the store owed her $8. what the fuck
“her coupon game was so fuckin raw” is basically the best string of words ever concocted
