Taraji P. Henson’s collection for MAC cosmetics (photo:MAC website)
True Beauty Tuesday is back! To kick things off I wanted to showcase a beauty collection that did so well that a few of the products sold out right after the launch. Of course I am talking about none other than Taraji P. Henson’s collection for MAC cosmetics. Although I have not tried the collection for myself I must say the collection grabbed my attention because it makes beauty simple and would personally use the shades in there collection year round. I love the the beautyistas that can work magic with shading and contouring, however I am not one of those gals. I just can’t work that magic. Taraji’s line looks so easy to use that I buy it I mean who doesn’t want to be fierce and fab like Cookie?
This little blog is expanding to explore a brand new world!
So when thinking about this brand/blog relaunch I did a lot of soul searching. It is easy to blog and at one time or another most people have done some form of blogging. After I started the process of rebranding and relaunching…
One of my goals in rebooting this blog was to explore more lifestyle topics in addition to fashion and beauty as it relates to black women. So I have to address what’s going on in the world. As a black woman the last few days have been hard for me. It never get easier when you see a black man gunned down. NEVER…..and it shouldn’t. Those black lives (as all of them) mean something. Yet again families are missing a spirit that is gone way to soon. No family should have to feel this ever. I have spent the last few days thinking about how one person can create change. Yes, the world if full of racist evil people, but I will not let them still my joy, shine, or my life. The last few days I have wondered how my grandmothers and mother lived in a time when this type of hatred legal was common place and lived to tell about. Creating change happens on many levels with a many different people working towards a common goal. It will not be easy, because the struggle is real. I will continue to pray, work, give, celebrate, educate, vote and uplift, etc. because Black Lives Matter! Each and every one of them.
You can’t say that All Lives Matter until my Black Life Matters too!
I am happy to welcome you back to A Stylish Hue! It has been a while, but for all things to grow one must reflect and redefine. Over the last few months I have been planning some really neat things for this blog (at least I think so). In the near future you will see more lifestyle post created with hue in mind. I also have a great little surprise planned for my fashionistas. Are you ready? Let’s get started in 3…2….1…GO!
A Stylish Hue is on a mission to finds designers like HUE! A nice new feature of our upcoming relaunch is a focus on designers, boutique owners, and industry professionals of color that promote products that celebrate everything positive about hue (you). If you are an industry professional or know of a great company please let them know about our new project or tag them on one of social media pages.
It has been a while. A long while and I have missed all of HUE!. I am currently working on rebranding and relaunching A Stylish Hue. What started a few years ago as way for me to share my interest and love for stylish black culture grew very quickly into something that I could have never imagined. I loved every minute of it. I am grateful what this little blog as done for me. Like so many things in live to move forward and grow one has to change. So in the next few weeks I will be working a new look for the site and new ideas. A Stylish Hue will officially relaunch in August. I hope to you will join me
Back in April I had the opportunity to partner with Beautiful Textures and Sally Beauty for The “Flaunt Your Look” event in Richmond, VA. If you followed me on Twitter & Instagram during the event you could see that I had a wonderful time. After the the event Beautiful Textures was wonderful enough to give me some products that I had not tried. Like always, I share product give aways with my “team” who have no idea how or where I got the products so that I can get a real response from them. I must say that I personally love the smell of all the products and I love how they do not leave a sticky feel on my hands. That feeling was echoed my senior tester. She hates strong smelling products with a passion and will not use any products with a strong scent. The other She feel in love with the mousse for everyday looks when she wanted her natural curly out and about. She also love the Shine and Silken growth oil for every day use.
I’m hosting “Flaunt Your Look” with Beautiful Textures at Sally’s in Henrico. The event is from 1PM- 4PM. I’ll be sharing hair tips and doing product giveaways for all you fabulous stylistas and the icing on the cake is that you will have a chance to win 2 tickets to the BET Awards in Los Angeles, CA. Yup, you heard me right the BET AWARDS! Be sure to RSVP for the event here on the Beautiful Textures website RSVP for the Flaunt Your Look Event in Henrico.
It’s that time of a year again Ladies & Gents. RVA Fashion Week. I have to admit that I have a real soft spot in my heart for RVA Fashion week. If you are first time visitor to this blog or if you have never been to my social media pages (shame on you). You maybe wondering why in the world would I care so much about a fashion week in Richmond, VA. Well, it all started way back in the 90’s when I was a fashion student at VCU. Back then the major fashion show was the one put on by the department of fashion. It makes me happy to see the Richmond style force growing. If you have never been to the city I invite you to take a trip to the “Cap City” you will find all kind of style around just about every corner. The week long celebration of style kicked off last week and is still going strong. Stylish events are happening all over the city. You are going to get more than the traditional runway show so if you are looking for something to do this weekend unleash your inner style Goddess (or God) and attend a RVA Fashion week event.
