VSU student Devonte Brown goes by the stage name Vonte Of NeW eRa or Vonte for short.

I’m a big fan of  “What’s In Your Makeup Bag?” videos on YouTube so what better way to show my love by doing my own! It’s always cool to know what other girls are using to “beat” their face and what their absolute favorite products are. All of my favorite products are versatile for a bum day on campus, a date out with your boo, or a night out with your friends. The makeup  doesn’t make you, you make it! That’s why your makeup collection should be as versatile as you are.  Just like almost every other girl, my makeup collection isn’t just confined to one bag; I've just decided to highlight my favorites! Hope you guys enjoy! READ MORE

Growing up, I admired Kelly Kapowski's fashion: high-waisted bottoms, flirty colors, bold prints. She was the most popular girl at Bayside High, and rightfully so! While Lisa Turtle was the aspiring fashion designer, it was Kelly who kept it simple, sweet and trendy! The best part: all of these trends are back in style! Here's a few style lessons from Saved by the Bell's Kelly Kapowski! 1. Don't be afraid to wear the same print head-to-toe. Kelly paired her top with bottoms of the same floral design. This particular look is girly and fun, but this same rule can also apply to solid colors or a night on the town! READ MORE

Natural Hair Girls: Henna Hair Color Review

I don’t do a lot of experimenting with my hair because all I want it to do is grow, which it does, but lately I’ve wanted to try something new like coloring it. I've heard about all the horror stories of dying one’s hair and facing damage and constant cuts. I didn’t want to have to deal with any cons that might stand in the way of my growth, so I started doing my research and came across the beauty of henna. Many people know henna as being a dye that you can creatively decorate your skin with, but it is also a great hair conditioner and dye as well! READ MORE

We’ve all had those days when we just have no idea what to do with our hair. Hair is one of those features that can make or break a girl. If your hair isn’t cooperating, it can make your whole day bad. Sometimes we are in a hurry because we slept through our alarms for class, or maybe we stayed out just a tad too late the night before. Or you could be in between hairstyles and just took down your sew-in or have an old twist-out that is long overdue. Whatever the case may be, you don’t have to feel hopeless when your hair isn’t working with you! Since we are transitioning to fall weather, we can start bringing out the scarves for head wraps!
