The 10 Black Girl Fall Makeup Looks We're Coveting On IG

Here are the looks that will have you slaying this season.

Beauty & Fashion

One thing about me is that I love to be dolled up: hair done, face done, everything did. Beauty is more than just makeup or hair to me, it's how I express creativity on the daily. To be honest though, my makeup game can definitely use an upgrade. I don't need anything too extravagant but I want to get better with my contour and eyeshadow skills, you feel me? I've been doing my makeup the same way for a minute now and it's time to switch things up and learn some new tricks. With entering a new season, it's the best time to try something new. There are a bunch of girls on IG giving us lewks and the tea on how to achieve the ourselves (shoutout to y'all).

So, whether you're getting ready for work, date night, or a girls night out, I encourage you to try something new or add a little extra touches of fall to your look. Don't worry, I'm going to set you up with everything you need. Thanks to apps like Instagram, all the inspiration is literally at our fingertips.

Here are 10 looks that will have you slaying this season.

1.Bronzed With A Pop of Color

I love that Makeup Shayla incorporated a lot of warm brown and nude tones to this look and to add extra pop, she added a pop of color to her inner corner highlight. SB: This is the level of contour I aspire to have.

2.Goldie

Taylor Anise killed this. It was a very simple face beat, but she made the statement with her bold red lip and her goldie eyelids. So if you're not for the contour and extra stuff, this is a nice creative alternative to spicing things up.

3.Warm Glowy Lewks

I honestly feel like Ronke is always fall-ready and tends to have natural elements in her makeup looks. The natural warm and darker hues with highlights seems to be her thing and she slays it very well.

4.Neon Green Lewks

Summer may be over, but this neon green trend is here to stay. Alissa Ashley is rockin' a neon green eyeliner with green eye gems to spice things up.

5.Glitter

I haven't perfected the cut crease yet but this is definitely a look I want to try for date night or a girls' night out. YouTuber Forever Aylssa is wearing a mix of purple eyeshadows and a subtle pop of glitter to bring this look to the next level. Glitter is an easy way to follow the trends of the season. With Christmas sneaking up on us, the shiny glitz and glam is a must this season!

6.Dark Colors

Don't be afraid to play with darker hues. I love makeup looks that incorporate dark colors like burgundy, brown, and black. This Japan-based content creator really killed this burgundy makeup look.

7.Smokey Eyes

A smokey eye is always a good idea. I love this dark green smokey with the brown underbrow detail. The colors blend really well together and is another simple way to bring a basic look into a fully glam look.

8.Keep It All The Way Natural

Aaliyah Jay looks stunning with this simple look! A completely natural look is my go-to. Just make sure your brows and lashes are on point and keep everything real simple.

9.Colorful Waterline

This is another summer favorite that's creepin' its way into fall and winter. Adding bold yet subtle details like a color into your waterline is definitely something you should try.

10. Fire Reds

This look is literally fire. The red and glitter blend is not only great for a holiday party but you'd definitely be serving some seductive looks with this eye makeup.

The emergence of a week-long tension headache told me that I needed to figure out a way to minimize and relieve my stress. In addition to daily magnesium supplements and meditation, I also found myself wanting to orgasm (the health benefits are hard to ignore) and do so at least every other day.

I was determined to set the mood and engage in some erotic self-focus by way of masturbation, and I wanted to do so with a little more variety than my wand vibrator provides. My commitment to almost daily masturbation was affirmed even further with the arrival of what would become my new favorite sex toy, the viral Lovers’ Thump & Thrust Dual Vibrator.

These days it seems that we’re all trying to heal from childhood wounds, and though I’m a big advocate for cutting people off – family included – I’ve come to learn how challenging that actually is. But also, it’s not always necessary if you have a parent who is open and committed to doing the healing work along with you, a mother, for example, who is receptive to her truth. But this also means you are receptive to the reality that parents are humans who often take cake crumbs from their parents and so on. It’s not to say that you have to accept piss-poor treatment because they’re human, but if any of us are going to embark upon a healing journey, we must acknowledge even the difficult truths.

Queen Latifah is saying no to unhealthy and dangerous lifestyles especially when it comes to her career. Since the beginning, the rapper/actress has always been a body-positive role model thanks to the range of characters she has played over the years that shows that size doesn’t matter. In an interview with PEOPLE, The Equalizer star opened up about taking on roles that don't compromise her health.

When I was ten, my Sunday school teacher put on a brief performance in class that included some of the boys standing in front of the classroom while she stood in front of them holding a heart shaped box of chocolate. One by one, she tells each boy to come and bite a piece of candy and then place the remainder back into the box. After the last boy, she gave the box of now mangled chocolate over to the other Sunday school teacher — who happened to be her real husband — who made a comically puzzled face. She told us that the lesson to be gleaned from this was that if you give your heart away to too many people, once you find “the one,” that your heart would be too damaged. The lesson wasn’t explicitly about sex but the implication was clearly present.

That memory came back to me after a flier went viral last week, advertising an abstinence event titled The Close Your Legs Tour with the specific target demo of teen girls came across my Twitter timeline. The event was met with derision online. Writer, artist, and professor Ashon Crawley said: “We have to refuse shame. it is not yours to hold. legs open or not.” Writer and theologian Candice Marie Benbow said on her Twitter: “Any event where 12-17-year-old girls are being told to ‘keep their legs closed’ is a space where purity culture is being reinforced.”

“Purity culture,” as Benbow referenced, is a culture that teaches primarily girls and women that their value is to be found in their ability to stay chaste and “pure”–as in, non-sexual–for both God and their future husbands.

I grew up in an explicitly evangelical house and church, where I was taught virginity was the best gift a girl can hold on to until she got married. I fortunately never wore a purity ring or had a ceremony where I promised my father I wouldn’t have pre-marital sex. I certainly never even thought of having my hymen examined and the certificate handed over to my father on my wedding day as “proof” that I kept my promise. But the culture was always present. A few years after that chocolate-flavored indoctrination, I was introduced to the fabled car anecdote. “Boys don’t like girls who have been test-driven,” as it goes.

And I believed it for a long time. That to be loved and to be desired by men, it was only right for me to deny myself my own basic human desires, in the hopes of one day meeting a man that would fill all of my fantasies — romantically and sexually. Even if it meant denying my queerness, or even if it meant ignoring how being the only Black and fat girl in a predominantly white Christian space often had me watch all the white girls have their first boyfriends while I didn’t. Something they don’t tell you about purity culture – and that it took me years to learn and unlearn myself – is that there are bodies that are deemed inherently sinful and vulgar. That purity is about the desire to see girls and women shrink themselves, make themselves meek for men.

Purity culture isn’t unlike rape culture which tells young girls in so many ways that their worth can only be found through their bodies. Whether it be through promiscuity or chastity, young girls are instructed on what to do with their bodies before they’ve had time to figure themselves out, separate from a patriarchal lens. That their needs are secondary to that of the men and boys in their lives.

It took me a while —after leaving the church and unlearning the toxic ideals around purity culture rooted in anti-Blackness, fatphobia, heteropatriarchy, and queerphobia — to embrace my body, my sexuality, and my queerness as something that was not only not sinful or dirty, but actually in line with the vision God has over my life. Our bodies don't stop being our temples depending on who we do or who we don’t let in, and our worth isn’t dependent on the width of our legs at any given point.
