Beauty: Good Hair!

Found these amazing pics of a gorgeous Good Hair model showcasing her natural  Peruvian weave and vowed to myself, ‘That is definitely going on my blog!’  Come to think of, I have never quite considered Peruvian hair. It’s almost always about Brazilian hair, isn’t it? Anyways, when I found these, I decided to do a little research on Peruvian hair and found out that:

When Black Girls Blush.

By show of hands, who loves blush but is scared to wear it because she is dark skinned or who loves blush and has actually worn it but the minute you step your friends are like, ‘What is that blush on your cheeks? Girl, seriously.’ ‘Oh do black people blush now? Hahaha!’
Wow, so many hands. Okay hands down. This only goes to confirm the conservative belief people have that blush would look horrible on black girls or worse, that black people don’t blush. My question is, since when?
Let me first start by unmystifying these silly myths.
Truth number one: EVERYONE blushes. Dark  tones just prevents you from seeing the pink pigmentation under some people’s skin when they blush. Which is a good thing if you’re trying to mask your emotions but let’s not get into that now.
Secondly, EVERYONE can wear blush. If you’ve got a cheek, there’s a …
