5 Beauty Gurus That Double As Life Gurus

5 Beauty Gurus That Double As Life Gurus

These 5 gurus honestly slay anything they touch.

Growing up I was ever really into makeup but when I discovered makeup I did not really know what I was doing. As I learned what to do with makeup I started learning how to apply it. Not long after that, I learned, I found beauty gurus.

They slowly became apart of my everyday life. The following five beauty gurus have become a part of my everyday routine. I constantly watch them and stalk their social media. You can say I'm a little obsessed.

1. Jaclyn Hill

She was the first person I ever watched. I honestly fell in love with her the moment I started watching her. Her personality is everything to me and I have always loved the products she uses. Now two years later I'm still obsessed.

2. Casey Holmes

Oh gosh, I cannot say enough about her. My best friend introduced me to her. When she did I honestly wasn't that crazy about her, but I continued to watch her. As I continued to watch her I fell more and more in love with her. Now she has turned into one of my most watched and most favorite YouTubers. I love her the most because her skin is like mine and I absolutely always love the products she suggests.

3. Manny MUA

Manny is where I started to venture out and I'm glad I did. I feel like I have said this before but I fell in love with him. He is just freaking hilarious and his skin tone is usually close to mine. He also always does lip colors I love! I'm not kidding when I say half the time I watch him and think he's prettier than me. I just love who he is.

4. Laura Lee

Uh, this girl right here has my heart. I love how quirky and funny she is. I love that she left her Alabama home and moved to California to chase her dreams. With me being and still living in Alabama I love seeing her succeed and make her dreams that she decided to chase come true. Still, she's a Bama girl at heart and I love her genuineness.

5. Jeffree Star

JEFFREE FREAKING STAR! I honestly cannot say more than his name. He is epic. He is amazing. His products are amazing and I love how real he is. I honestly cannot say more about him. I adore Jeffree for sure!

These five inspire the way I apply makeup. They inspire me every day whether it's their tweets, Snapchats, Instagram photos, or of course their YouTube videos. All five have my heart and I enjoy everything they have to offer. So if you're like me and don't know what to do with makeup just go to YouTUbe and find what you want.

There are many beauty gurus you may hate the five I've named, so find the ones that fit you and the ones you love.

20 Small Tattoos With Big Meanings

Tattoos with meaning you can't deny.

It's tough to find perfect tattoos with meaning.

You probably want something permanent on your body to mean something deeply, but how do you choose a tattoo that will still be significant in 5, 10, 15, or 50 years? Over time, tattoos have lost much of their stigma and many people consider them a form of art, but it's still possible to get a tattoo you regret.

So here are 20 tattoos you can't go wrong with. Each tattoo has its own unique meaning, but don't blame me if you still have to deal with questions that everyone with a tattoo is tired of hearing!

SEE RELATED: "Please Stop Asking What My Tattoos Mean"

1. A semicolon indicates a pause in a sentence but does not end. Sometimes it seems like you may have stopped, but you choose to continue on.

2. "A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor."

3. Top symbol: unclosed delta symbol which represents open to change. Bottom symbol: strategy.

4. "There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls."

5. Viking symbol meaning "create your own reality."

6. Greek symbol of Inguz: Where there's a will, there's a way.

7. Psalm 18:33 "He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he causes me to stand on the heights."

8. 'Ohm' tattoo that represents 4 different states of consciousness and a world of illusion: waking (jagrat), dreaming (swapna), deep sleep (sushupti), transcendental state (turiya) and world of illusion (maya).

9. Alchemy: symbolizes copper, means love, balance, feminine beauty, and artistic creativity.

10. The Greek word “Meraki" means to do something with soul, passion, love, and creativity or to put yourself into whatever you do.

11. Malin (Skövde, Sweden) – you have to face setbacks to be able to go forward.

12. Symbol meaning "thief" from "The Hobbit." It was the rune Gandalf etched into Bilbo's door so the dwarves could find his house.

13. “Lux in tenebris" means “light in darkness."

14. Anchor Tattoo: symbolizing strength and stability, something (or someone) who holds you in place, and provides you the strength to hold on no matter how rough things get.

15."Ad Maiora" is translated literally as “Towards greater things." It is a formula of greeting used to wish more success in life, career or love.

16. A glyph means “explore." It was meant as a reminder for me to never stop exploring.

17. "Aut inveniam viam aut faciam," meaning roughly, "Either I shall find a way, or I will make one."

18. Lotus Flower. It grows in muddy water, and it is this environment that gives forth the flower's first and most literal meaning: rising and blooming above the murk to achieve enlightenment.

19. The zen (or ensō) circle to me represents enlightenment, the universe and the strength we all have inside of us.

20. Two meanings. The moon affirms life. It looks as if it is constantly changing. Can remind us of the inconsistency of life. It also symbolizes the continuous circular nature of time and even karma.

My Natural Hair Journey Over The Past 4 Years

When I was first going natural in 2014, I didn't understand the concept of not putting heat into my hair for my curls to actually show. I was still flat ironing my hair every week or two.


When I was first going natural in 2014, I didn't understand the concept of not putting heat into my hair for my curls to actually show. I was still flat ironing my hair every week or two.

When I finally decided to take the health of my hair serious in 2015, I began by cutting it very short. I then tried Bantu knots to see how my hair would look in its natural state, I wasn't a fan. So, I began wearing protective styles such as braids, weaves, and wigs.

As my hair grew underneath my protective styles I began to love my length and curls. I finally started wearing my hair out in 2016 when I first moved to Alabama to attend college. I would occasionally still wear protective styles but not nearly as often.

In 2017, I still only did twist outs on my hair because I didn't know what product combination to use to get other styles I wanted. Now in 2018, I still use protective style every couple of months but I am focused on the health of my hair.

I also recently began trying different hairstyles to just not always be stuck doing the same things every week. Look out for a blog about when I got my hair colored blue during the summer of 2018 and what led me to do it. Also, I will be posting about my wash day and what products I use to achieve certain hairstyles.
