Facebook February on tashasface.com

tasha's face facebook february live

I have declared that this February is “Facebook February”. I was late in setting up my Facebook page, “Tasha’s Face Beauty Blog“, not least because it was just awkward to set up and I couldn’t decide which category to put page in. My content is across several social media platforms but I haven’t been making full use of Facebook.

This month, I want to show Facebook some love. I don’t want to duplicate what I put on my blog or on other platforms. I want to do more. You can already see all of my blog and Instagram posts on it but I want to:

  • Do status updates
  • Share blog posts I’ve written for Brown Beauty Talk
  • Share any blog posts I write for other people
  • Do Facebook Live broadcasts, both planned and impromptu
  • Share posts by other people which I like and think you would like

How does that sound?

I will do a regular Facebook Live chat every Tuesday between 2030 and 2130 GMT except the 28th when I am hoping I’ll be at Keziah Connections so I can broadcast the event (WiFi permitting).

In the first Facebook Live chat on Tuesday 7th February, I’ll be discussing the new-look Glamour Magazine. It promises more beauty and fashion so let’s put that to the test! See you there!

Cosmo and the mixed-heritage curly girl

After I whittled down my magazines into what inspired me, I categorised the articles into themes. There was some overlap but at the time I felt the groupings made sense. Now, I have written this blog post beginning with the body of text, rather than the title which I have never done before. I just wasn’t sure how to introduce this collection of cuttings.

In the June 2016 edition of Cosmopolitan there was a full feature on hair, or more specifically, “hairitage”. To my delight it focused on mixed-heritage hair which for the most part was curly. I could identify with the piece and also find it useful for product recommendations that I could use on my hair.

Diversity in Beauty and Fashion 2016

Last year in December I went through a year’s worth of magazines that I had bought to catch up on my reading to recap on the trends and to seek inspiration.

One thing I noticed was that towards the end of 2015 and into 2016 there was a real effort to be more diverse in fashion and beauty. There were more darker-skinned beauties on the catwalks, in fashion and beauty features and in advertisements in most of the magazines. There were even diversity features in themselves.

I wanted to feel like I could conquer the world. What’s my world-conquering colour? It’s red! There was a time when I would never wear red at all, whether it be clothing or makeup but once I discovered the power of red, I knew it was here to stay in my life.
