We hooked up with Dwan White, Director of Global Marketing & Product Development for House of Cheatham, to discuss brand aesthetics, ever-changing hair and mainstream competition. You probably know the beauty house from their Africa’s Best and Aunt Jackie’s lines. Publicists, innovators, beauty gurus and stylists, take notes.
How has the curly hair industry surprised you?
Dwan: What caught many in this industry off guard was that the curly/natural trend, which usually cycles in and out every decade, quickly morphed from trend to movement. Within a couple of years, women of every ethnicity joined the “texture” conversation. That conversation led to a texture movement that has changed how we approach product development.
What thoughts go into the creation of your brand’s aesthetics? Aunt Jackie’s has a nostalgic look and many of your models are chocolate-toned and gorgeous. Is this on purpose? Read More…

Be a summer sex pot. Smoky looks give those dainty pastels a swift kick this season. The key to keeping the look somewhat ethereal is to focus on highlighting your cheeks and using minimal, if any, blush. Opt for shimmer, as opposed to fall’s matte favorites. Lips should be lavished with a nude gloss in a slightly flushed hue. Check out our product favs and more looks we love. Read More…
Tags: orgasms for your skin
Laga Gaga claims that flawless skin is the result of two things – spinach and plenty of orgasms. Sounds about right. A powerful orgasm helps you emit pheromones, which make you more attractive, along with estrogen, which makes your hair shiny and your skin nice and smooth. Good sex also gets your blood moving which may help to accelerate healing or certain skin eruptions. The big O gives your immune system a boost, which helps to even your skin tone and give a more refreshed appearance.
The amazing experience quiets the mind and the stresses of the body, often helping to purge toxins through sweat. Lastly, it heightens your natural collagen production, warding off more and more wrinkles with each romp.
Have orgasms helped your skin?

Naomi Campbell is a wizard. A devastatingly gorgeous, never-aging, put-any-twenty-year-old-to-shame wizard. The ebony phenom covers Vogue Brazil with a blonde coif that isn’t particularly amazing, but her toned bod and creamy skin are more than enough of a distraction.
The model wears Tom Munro with a subtle smirk and a little skin peeking out of the suit’s geometric cutouts.

Meet Yasmine Richard – cool curly girl and the host of FUSE’s ‘Trending Ten.’ When the NYC dweller is not interviewing Justin Beiber or covering the latest music festival, she’s busy caring for her bodacious curls. Check out how she manages her look.
How long have you been natural?
Yasmine: Hmm. Since 2002. A little over ten years. I basically just cut all off. I did do some braids and a few weaves, but I really just cut it off and it was short for a while.
Was there any apprehension to wear your hair natural on-air? Read More…
The 70’s defined what it meant to be a sensual woman and those fierce, feminine looks have slid back on the runways over 40 years later. Spring’s makeup palette drenches eyes with dynamic neons and silvers that resurrect the spirit of Studio 54. Grab a makeup brush and let’s go.
SILVER SHOCK: For eyes, consider a shimmering silver. We’re talking lush, sizzling, electric silver that pops and wows. If you love your lids, bathe them in the shade. Don’t be stingy. Skip the subtle liner and paint your entire lid. Try MAC Pigment in Platinum.
FALL IN LINE: A perfectly lined eye always compliments a retro look. Use a great liner like to create a “tight eye” with a thick line of a deep dark shade. Apply your liner after applying your eye shadow and remember, there’s not much room for mistake. Keep a steady hand. BADgal Liner Waterproof Eyeliner is almost magical.

It’s been joked about in movies, idolized by musician Sting and floated through conversation of kinky girlfriends looking for a new way to get it in. Tantric sex is one the most widely known sexual practices, yet is still a complete mystery to most. Many have inaccurately described the act as simply having “sex for hours,” but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. At the heart of the 5,000-year-old Eastern spiritual practice is enlightenment and reverence for your partner, says SheKnows.com.
With tantric sex, which actually doesn’t refer to just intercourse, you and your partner focus on completely succumbing to the will of the other, attempting to heighten and lengthen your state of arousal. Techniques include breathing, very slow, deliberate pelvic movements and intense eye contact.
Allegedly, tantric sex produces an other-worldly orgasm that could last up to a full minute. Whoa. Check out the rest of this article.
