PAPER MAG X NARS

flew to new york to shoot and speak about "standing in my own skin" and actually getting up to fight for a cause. every woman. every being. every human should feel pretty.. should be strong. after, posing nude all day in front of strangers wearing nothing but a tint of NARS i realized that being comfortable in my own skin has never been all that easy now.. or even growing up... but i did it. i can say i really learned a lot about myself.. and letting it all go and at the end of the day.. not caring about my imperfections but HONESTLY embracing them. NO ONE IS YOU. thank you so much Papermag and NARS Cosmetics for letting me talk about how ALL girls should embrace what they have! here goes nothing: FULL interview here http://bit.ly/1POQSFG ‪#‎NARSissist‬

The LaShae Beauty Guide Through the Holidaze!

The Christmas holiday is just around the corner. And you know its the season for mistletoes, gift-giving and snuggling up with that special someone by a fire.. (if you don’t live in LA, that is) Not only do you have to worry about the wrapping the presents perfectly; you have to do it all without looking good, right? It may not seem like there is enough time in the day to freshen your face, put together the perfect outfit, and slave on the stove for hours for your part of the feast. I can’t help you there.. but what I can help you with is my top holiday beauty tips to keep your face looking fresh and holiday ready in a #babblebox packaged just for you! Not only that, but amazing for gifting as well! 

FIRST STEP: GLOW

First we are going to start with pulling off that “summer glow” with all the sun because we all know that laying out in cold weather is just not happening. Way Too Tan is packaged in a big golden tube that goes on your skin like butter. When I tried this out, it made my skin illuminate! A perfect golden brown with no streaks, or orange! I would suggest conturing your face like Kim K in the cheek bones by adding a little more to the area! Follow them here for more tips @waytootan 

 

SECOND STEP: ILLUMINATE

Next on the list is dark circles. So, your tan.. you are glowing, you are late running around trying to get all the perfect things. Easiest most effective face cover up IN THE WORLD (trust me) Make up Forever Foundation @makeupforeverofficial.. and believe me when I say it works wonders and I won’t be getting any other kind. It really works like a line eraser and doesn’t feel like Im wearing cake on my face! Watch this foundation melt awesome(ly) into your tan. Illuminating your skin makes it easy to keep it light and last all day.. and night. http://www.sephora.com/ultra-hd-invisible-cover-foundation-P398321?skuId=1708957

 

 

THIRD STEP: LIP SERVICE

Finish up the look with a BADASS red lip that spices up any face! No crazy eyeliner tricks. Simple, SEMI- natural and most importantly.. EASY! My go-to is always @laqaandco ’s race reds. Legit doesn’t kiss goodbye! (Ive tried) Its really the first thing I look for! And I love it. Last’s forever and stays looking wet for a while!! 

 

 

Holiday’s just got easier… and fresher! Just saying. They haven’t done me wrong! Where to find all these amazing products in one spot?? CHECK OUT #BABBLEBOX (www.BabbleBoxx.com). Glow like you should. XO

ESSIE NAIL POLISH CAMPAIGN

Fall is just around the corner and believe it or not but YOUR NAIL POLISH means a lot more than you think. Essie's New Fall Collection (which by the way was just unveiled at the InStyle #SummerSocial and let me just be the first to tell you that the colors are OUT OF THIS WORLD.  My favorite is "Leggy Legend" but thats if I could only choose one..

Tips and tricks to these are fairly simple since they are all killer colors.. especially when combined. * Paint each finger a different color then get a thin (almost like eyeliner brush) and draw one line of another color on top straight down the middle of each nail. 

* So, I am sure many of you already know about a base coat.. but if you try to do a base coat thats a creme color... I find it works the absolute best and makes each color pop more. I dont know... its really magic to me.
