Brandon, a 23-year-old Atlanta-native and high school teacher, only goes by Mr. Graham on school days. Otherwise he’s “B.Divine,” the artist. His gift was realized when he was just 4 years old.

Dupe! There It Is! MAC Lipstick Dupes

I can admit it. I’m MAC obsessed. It’s not often I can walk by the MAC counter without buying a lipstick. If you can imagine, my personal collection is pretty sick --- it’s pretty to look at and it’s sick because it continuously grows.

When it comes to fashion, Detroit-native Donte Harris is a maven. The 25-year-old is currently a stylist, fashion consultant and manager at Aldo with aspirations to be the next “it” person in fashion like his favorite three people: June Ambrose, Rachel Zoe and Brad Goreski. Being one part owner of Collage, a multifaceted production business that encompasses styling, interior decor and creative direction (i.e. photo shoots, video shoots and choreography), Donte is making his own print in fashion.

Beauty trends, like fashion trends, are forever changing and getting a facelift before the onset of each season. You don’t have to be a makeup queen to brush up on beauty techniques, popular products and trends in the world of beauty. I sat down with two up-and-coming makeup artists (MUAs) to get the latest on the hot makeup trends for summer.

It’s been over a year since Adele introduced Louboutin inspired nails at the 2012 Grammy Awards. While it’s still a hot trend that I’m noticing more often, I just don’t know if I can get with it.

If you haven’t heard of Black & Sexy TV and Dennis Dortch by now, you may be living under a rock.

There were Bey stans that adored Beyonce’s Osman Studio black and white jumpsuit at the Grammys. Then there were people who expected her to come dazzling in a flowing gown and just didn’t like it. As with many celebs and designers alike, award shows are a way to preview their newness—hair styles to fashion trends for upcoming seasons. Beyonce did just that.
