VIDEO: Get Your Summer Babe ☀️ Shine On

Last time we were gathered here we were here to get glowy glam for Pride — and while there’s no bad time to be a holographic space princess, sometimes you need a quick everyday look that will have you turning heads in ten minutes or less. This is it, from one summer babe to another!

Tune in next month for a new video and to find out where I’m at in my mascara rumspringa!

  1. first of all, kaylah, what a friggin delight you are.

    secondly, i am learning so. much. about make up.

    do i wear it? no. but do i like being able to talk about it with people who do? YES.

    thanks for bein a superbabe for us

  2. Kaylah – your first video was an absolute joy, and this one is no different!

    OMG!!! I cannot express how excited I am to have such kickass black femme representation on Autostraddle! AND how great it is to have such amazing make up tutorials right on hand!!

    Watched beginning to end with a smile on my face :)

  3. You did not just start with LFO!!! Alright, already in love. I gotta get some of that glow stuff and that foundation sounds excellent. I don’t do a full face unless I’m dressing up, but when I do I hate that it feels like air no longer touches my skin. Finally—the places you hi light are a little different than what I do and it makes your face look so good! I’m gonna try it!

  4. thank you for explaining strobe cream! i love browsing the makeup section at target but don’t know what A LOT of products are for and strobing cream is one of them!

  5. I came for the Teletubbies Sun Baby and stayed to see if sun protection would be mentioned and to remind people no matter your skin tone you can still get skin cancer and die if it goes unnoticed until the later stages.

    Listen to Kayla y’all wear that SPF (and get checked.)

    Acral lentiginous melanoma killed Bob Marley.

  6. I absolutely love this look and I’ll be trying it for work Saturday! You look amazing you’re so funny and I’m so glad that there’s black femme representation on this website (finally, tbh). I can’t wait for your next Video <3
