Fashion Influencer of the Week Zendaya

If you follow my  Instagram, I usually feature the top innovative women in the industry, known  as fashionista of the day. I came up with a brilliant idea to instead transfer my fashionistas of the day idea onto my website instead. The fashionistas of the day will be known as the fashion influencers of the week instead. I will feature powerful women making a change while making a fashion statement along their journey. My “fashion influencers” will be featured weekly on ameenhalee.com. My first fashion influencer of the week is Zendaya.

Zendaya Coleman is a role model to many young girls around the world. Zendaya is only 21 years old and making a positive change. Zendaya uses her voice unlike others to speak out on important issues. For example, Zendaya uses her voice to speak about the real side of Hollywood. Zendaya stated at Beautycon New York that the representation of colored woman in Hollywood needs to change. Zendaya also stated, “I am Hollywood’s, I guess you could say, acceptable version of a black girl and that needs to change. We’re vastly too beautiful and too interesting for me to be the only representation of that.” Zendaya fashion sense is also amazing and impeccable. She can wear a garbage bag and make it work. Zendaya is known for making a beauty statement with her bold and beautiful eyebrows. Zendaya is the definition of black girl magic !

My Experience at the Teen Vogue Summit

On June second, I attended the most empowering and life changing summit. What was is  this summit you may ask? This summit was the amazing Teen Vogue summit. The Teen Vogue Summit is a summit which includes debates, hands on workshops, panels, action opportunity, and mentor sessions. The Teen Vogue Summit took place from June first to June third at the New School located in New York City. The Teen Vogue Summit  also focused on important subjects that people need to be more are about globally. For example, immigration, gun control, LGBTQ + rights, justice,politics,  and the environment.

 

My favorite part about the Teen Vogue summit was the  panels. I heard amazing and moving speeches from many amazing people. These amazing people included, Emma Gonzalez, Logan Browning, Lauren Jauregui, Amadla Stenburg, and many more panelists. From the panelist that took place at the Teen Vogue Summit, many important issues were discussed. Did you know that President Trump is trying to remove Daca? Daca is Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. It is basically a relief to protect the immigrant youth who came to the United States as children from deportation. In my opinion, people need to be more aware of action going on in the country, instead of the “Instagram news”. I also enjoyed an amazing talk from Jaymal Green. Jaymal Green is the young candidate ever to run for mayor in the city of Chicago.Every person at the Teen Vogue summit is truly inspiring. Finally, all of the amazing people that spoke on the panel deserves to have all the spotlight on them, just like the Kardashians.

 

Teen Vogue also partnered with Rock the Vote for the Teen Vogue Summit. At the Teen Vogue Summit, there were voter registrations where you can register to vote. It is important for every one to vote to change the world. The youth is Americas leaders. The presidential elections is not the only important election there is in the world. Mid term elections are very important as well. If you plan to make  a change in your community, reaching out to representatives in your community is very important to make a change. At the Teen Vogue Summit, I also had a great time talking to others who wanted to make a change. I also talked to some amazing Teen Vogue editors who gave amazing tips to everyone.

 

Lastly, I attended the Teen Vogue Summit on June third for the third day. The third day for the  Teen Vogue Summit took place numerous places across New York City. The event I attended took place at the Toms store in Soho. The Teen Vogue day of action at Toms included about twenty amazing people. In collaboration with the amazing Rock the Vote staff, we came up with our own campaigns to get people to vote. My campaign name was the new age of the youth. The new age of the youth came up as a campaign name since the new generation can make a change. My campaign was targeted toward college students and parents. At the end of the event, we discussed all of our campaign ideas.

Louis Vuitton is the go to lifestyle global powerhouse brand for fashion. From designer handbags, shoes, jewelry, fragrances, leather goods, accessories and personalization. What girl hasn’t dreamed of owning her own Louis Vuitton couture bag? Even though Louis Vuitton is the cost of rent money and mortgage, it is totally worth it. Louis Vuitton is the statement for everything perfection in design. But, how did this fashion powerhouse all begin?
The famous LV came from Paris, where Louis Vuitton was founded.Louis Vuitton (1821-1892) was the founder of brand of leather goods. Did you know that Louis Vuitton was appointed as trunk maker to Empress Eugénie de Montijo. Louis Vuitton walked to Paris by foot for two whole years. I bet that Louis Vuitton’s feet hurt a lot! Imagine the world of fashion without Louis Vuitton, it would be totally mind blowing. After Louis Vuitton’s death, his son George took over the global brand. The Louis Vuitton brand will later get trademarked and take over the world of fashion.
I attended the Louis Vuitton exhibit this month on November ninth. The Louis Vuitton exhibit is literally the best exhibit to take the best pictures and learn all about the global fashion brand. The Louis Vuitton exhibit was literally breathtaking, no joke. I learned that Louis Vuitton not only made leather handbags, but clothes. I have to say that Louis Vuitton is the go to brand for celebrities. If you are a celebrity and have not yet won Louis Vuitton on the red carpet, what is you doing? I fell in love with every different room at the exhibit. My jaw was wide open looking at the old and new collections of Louis Vuitton. I have to say that the Supreme and Louis Vuitton collaboration  had to be my favorite. At the end of the exhibit, you get to keep a Louis Vuitton pin. FYI, which I am never wearing because if I lose the pin I will literally cry my eyes out; While wiping my tearing with a Louis Vuitton printed napkin(if it exists).

My Skincare Thread

by Ameenha Lee

Before many people read this article, many people are probably asking what is a skincare thread? A skincare thread is a routine that a person uses to achieve clear and amazing skin. There are so many different skin types. From oily, dry, combination and normal skin. My skin is normal, which is not really prone to breaking out like other skin types. But, normal skin is not perfect at all! You will still have to take care of your skin delicately while having normal skin. I will be posting my skin care routine down below! I hope you enjoy.

Step one: Cleansing My  Skin

untitled (3)

This Soap and Glory cleanser totally gives my skin a glow in the morning. This cleanser is good for ALL skin types. Also, if you have acne this cleanser is perfect for you. This vitamin C cleanser detox’s your skin in the best way possible. This cleanser is also very cheap, compared to other cleansers.

header-tumblr-twitter-Favim.com-1178940

The Fab Pore purifying foam from Soap & Glory is also perfect for people that tend to break out easily, why? This cleanser includes witch hazel which does wonders for the skin. I use both this cleanser and the vitamin c cleanser together if I break out(which rarely happens).

Step two: Toning My Skin

pic

I use apple cider vinegar for my skin because apple cider vinegar clears my skin up. Also, apple cider vinegar restores pH to my skin and can lighten  dark spots.

This Wonder Pore Freshner works wonders! This shrinks pores, gives my skin elasticity, refines my skin tone and deep cleanses my pores.

This Wonder Pore Freshner works wonders for my skin. This product deep cleanses my pores, gives my skin elasticity,gives my skin an even tone and shrinks my pores,

Step 3: Applying My Moisturizer 

flower-backgrounds-tumblr

In my opinion, everyone should use natural moisturizers. Natural moisturizers that are perfect for everyone’s skin is African Shea Butter and Coconut Oil. I love using African Shea Butter because it gives my skin a glow and also lightens dark spots.

Last step: Applying my Facial Mist

images

The What A Face! Rose Renewal spray from Gilly Organics works wonders for my skin. I apply this facial spray after I apply my moisturizer and throughout the day. This facial spray will make your face VERY firm. This facial spray also tones your skin. In my opinion, this is a way better spray compared to Mario Badescu’s facial spray. Also, way cheaper!

Other Skin Care Tips! 

  • exfoliate your skin
  • drink water
  • do not eat a lot of sugary and salty foods

images

Lastly, here is a product I use if I have a pimple that hurts and that is red. You apply it on your pimple before you go to sleep and wash it off in the morning. The Next day, my pimple will be less red and will not hurt at all. Also, my pimple will look practically gone!

Young stars Yara Shahidi , Millie Bobby Brown, and Caleb Mclaughlin attended the Emmys. These young stars are changing Hollywood in the best way possible.

Yara Shahidi style is always amazing from head to toe. She was one of the few to not disappoint at the 2107 Emmy Awards. Yara Shahidi was dressed in a custom Prada gown. This fabulous gown featured a belt around the dress with a beige dress embroidered with green sequins. Yara Shahidi stars on Blackish. She is soon getting her own spin off show.

Millie Bobby Brown stars on the hit Show Stranger Things that airs on Netflix. Millie Bobby Brown is also the face of Calvin Klein! Millie wore a white princess like dress. Stranger Things was nominated for Outstanding Drama Series.

Caleb McLaughlin also stars on Stranger Things. Caleb McLaughlin has also been on many Broadway shows. Also, he has starred in the New Edition movie. He was one of the boys at the 2017 Emmys that actually wore the best outfit. His tuxedo included purple flowers with a black bow tie.

In my opinion, these young stars definitely are on top of my best dressed list at the 2017 Emmys.

Makeup is changing the world every single day. Makeup companies, like Sephora, make billions of dollars a year. Why? The answer to that is just a girl’s love for makeup. There are very expensive makeup items, and there are very cheap makeup items. The Fenty Beauty highlighter and the brow gel from the Ready.Set.Brow collection are definitely must haves.

The Killawatt highlighter is from Fenty Beauty. This highlighter has such an amazing pigment on every skin. Also, this highlighter is weightless and includes long cream powder. Everytime I see a picture of someone wearing the Killawat highlighter, it look so amazing. The Killawat highlights also has a five star rating on fentybeauty.com. This highlighter is way better compared to other makeup brands that feature highlighters. The price is super decent also!

The brow gel from the Ready.Set.Brow collection is not like another other brow gel. This brown gel does not leave any residue or flakes on the eyebrows. This brow gel holds my brows in place for hours. I do not tweeze, wax, or thread my brows at all! This brow gel definitely makes my brows look nice and popping.

Glowing skin is what every women wants. Glowing skin can makes a female’s face pop in a very good way. Do you want to know how to get glowing skin? Your fairy blogger mom (aka me) will help you. I will tell you tips how to get glowing skin. Also, I will show products I use to achieve my glowing skin.

1.) Cleanse

Cleansing your skin is very important. You have to cleanse your skin two times a day, in the morning and night. Everyday your skin is exposed  to germs and bacteria. Cleansing can fix that. There are cleansers for all skin types. Below is the cleanser I use.

untitled (3)

2.) Use coconut oil.

For more on coconut oil, read my article below.

3.) Exfoliate

Exfoliating your skin is for ALL skin types. Exfoliating can bring make your face look amazing. Also, exfoliating gets rid of dead skin cells. The exfoliator I use below gets rid of your dead skin. You spread the product around your face and you can see all of the dead skin you have had.

Coconut oil is a versatile oil that has been around for generations. I love to use coconut oil for my face. Coconut oil lightens my dark spots (if I have any on my face). Also, coconut oil gives my face a glow which I love, without clogging my face with oil.  Below I will list some benefits of coconut oil, for both hair and skin.

  1.     Coconut oil serves as a face moisturizer. It promotes younger skin, banishes scars, and gives you softer skin.
  2. Coconut oil can whiten your teeth.
  3. Coconut oil can mend split ends. Also, coconut oil can  make your hair shine and deep condition your hair. Did you know coconut oil can also help make your hair grow?
  4. Coconut oil can remove all of your makeup.
  5.  You can use coconut oil as a replacement for shaving cream.
  6. Coconut oil can strengthen your immune system.
  7.  Lastly, coconut oil can help with weight loss.

Do’s and Don’ts of Makeup

picture Buzzfeed

Makeup has changed our era of lifetime in a positive way. Way back then, Cleopatra used beetles for makeup. Nasty right? But, that is how makeup was used back then. Makeup has pros and just some epic don’ts! I mean can’t we all relate to that picture above?Some things you should not do is..

Apply the wrong shade of foundation

Foundation is used to smooth out the face and cover spots. Some times some people wear shades of foundation that is way too dark for their skin. What you can do to make sure you are wearing the right shade of foundation is to test it out on your hand. Or you can go to a beauty place, like Sephora, and a beauty specialist can help you find your perfect shade.

Do not forget to wear mascara

Simple..just do not forget the mascara. Or apply false lashes. Your choice.

Do not get cakey with the makeup

Makeup should not be cakey. Makeup enhances your natural features. Makeup should be glowing and radiant. Not get cakey. Try to not buy foundation that does not feel light on your skin.

How to Manage Acne

acne


Today, acne effects tweens and teens these days. Acne can effect a  boy and/or girls confidence. An estimated 80 percent of teens and adults get acne outbreaks around the ages eleven through thirty years old. What is acne? Acne is “a condition characterized by red pimples on the face, prevalent chiefly among teenagers”-Google. Ever since I was young, I have also had a skin care routine. I get compliments on my clear skin. When I ten years old, I started cleansing my face. At the age of thirteen I started exfoliating my skin. My skin is very  sensitive. I do not tone my skin because I am prone to breaking out very easily. Now I am not saying to cleanse your skin at ten years old. But, you should always invest in a skin care routine. I believe you start cleansing and exfoliating skin at the age of thirteen or fourteen. Why? Because that is when puberty usually starts. Your body goes through many changes. I use products to keep my skin clear. Such as, Clean and Clear, Shea Moisture, Lush and Garnier. I use sunscreen. I also use face masks. My choice of face mask always has tea tree oil, green tea, or a detoxifying ingredients in it. Why use sun screen? Sun screen protects your skin from the sun. Dark spots occasionally can come from the sun. You can prevent that from using sunscreen. Your sunscreen spf should be fifteen or higher. My favorite mask is the Aztec face mask. It opens your pores and tightens your skin. When I use this mask, my pimples usually are gone the next day because my pores were smaller and not oily because of this mask. Another one of my favorite mask is the charcoal face mask. Charcoal purify’s and deep cleans the skin. When you break out I would suggest drinking a lot of water. Stop touching your face. When you touch your face, your hands are covered with dirt and bacteria. You do not want you skin to be nasty because you touch your face. Washing your covers is definitely important for keeping clear skin. Lastly, stop using toothpaste. When you put toothpaste on your skin, you are burning it. Products I suggest using you break out is Grease Lighting from Lush. Also, hemp blemish salve. Apple cider vinegar and aloe Vera is also amazing for maintaining clear skin. Drinking apple cider vinegar and using it as a toner is amazing. Apple cider vinegar is not for all skin types. I would suggest you try it first on you hand. Aloe Vera reduces acne scars, removes excess oil and dirt, reduces appearance of blemishes and more.
