I’m Back!


Grand Turk, 2014

Good morning, all!  I’m back after taking a week long vacation with my SO (Significant Other), and I just wanted to drop in to share a bit about my trip and new things coming for Curls Fo’ The Girls.  With that being said, let’s get started! (more…)

Feature: Best Skin Care Items for Dry Skin Types


Hey ladies!  My name is Khira, and I am a makeup/product junkie. Nice to meet you! 🙂 I was born in, and currently reside in, New York City! I am interested in, and love all things, beauty and fashion related. I was never really into fashion or beauty when I was growing up, and I was a tomboy for the most part until the end of high school/beginning of college. I truly got to know myself as a person in college, and I became comfortable in expressing myself. I started to dabble into makeup and immediately became obsessed. Playing in makeup made me realize how important it is to actually take care of my skin. I used to wash my face once in blue moon and never really took the time to tend to its needs. My skin is not sensitive whatsoever, but it is extremely dry. Now that I have experimented with skincare products, and have learned what is best for me, I have decided to share my must-have skincare products for those who have drier skin types!
