How Cardi B? she got this name (Cardi B) from her peers, which was actually a short name of Bacardi rum.Before debuting her journey with television series “Love & Hip Hop: New York” in 2015 Cardi B began her career as a stripper at the age of 19. According to her stripping changed her life, it saved her from poverty and an abusive relationship.

From there she started off her journey to become one of the superstars of the rap industry.

With her debut single, “Bodak Yellow” Cardi B dethroned Swift’s much talked and blogged out single “What You Made Me Do” on Billboard hot 100. Being an artist of a quite male-dominated genre, Hip-hop she became the first female rapper to top the Billboard Hot 100 that remained at the top for three weeks (starting from October 7, 2017) which eventually made her the longer-running solo female chart-topper.

Some of her other achievements include the first woman to chart first three entries in the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs’ Top 10 simultaneously, Winner of three awards at 2017 BET Hip-Hop Awards, First rapper with first three singles in the Hot 100’s Top 10 simultaneously, Album streamed over 100 million times on Apple Music.

In the recent 61st Grammy Awards, Cardi received the Best Rap Album award for her debut “Invasion Of Privacy” Album and became the first solo female artist to win but took home her first ever Grammy. Mac Miller, Nipsey Hussle, Pusha T, and Travis Scott were also nominated along with her in the same category.
She received five Grammy nominations, including Album of the Year, Song of the year, Best Rap Performance and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.

Cardi took her husband Offset on stage to accept the award, she thanked everyone who worked so hard with her. she highlighted several particular people, including her daughter Kulture and other collaborators in her thankyou speech.

Lauryn Hill was the last woman who took away the award over 20 years ago, so Cardi’s win is overall historic.

Hey beautiful! Today we are going to talk about one of the products of Huda Beauty. Huda Kattan founder of Huda beauty who was a makeup expert and blogger (before being an entrepreneur) has come with her makeup expertise in her debut eyeshadow palette.Textured shadows palette rose gold edition, a Huda beauty product which has highly pigmented shades that consist of mattes, chrome pressed pearls and 3D metal shades.

The shades are not only gorgeous but easily buildable as well and deliver the maximum pay off for easy-on-the-go, bold metallic and smoky looks. The eyeshadow shades don’t dry out, pressed very perfectly and stays long (what else I need ).

The packaging of the eyeshadow palette is very basic as its Huda’s first palette (Three stars for packaging).

Rose gold edition comes in 18 color shades which are perfect for every skin tone and every mood or occasion.

Rose gold edition comes in a cardboard shaped, a black palette with a transparent lid (which showcase the color shades it has). The texture of each shade differs (some of them are creamy, and some of them are too dry). The wear time also varies from 7- 9 hours, but the pigmentation is impressive.

SHADES

Metallic finish

• Dubai – golden brown shade with green undertones. The texture is creamy and pretty difficult to blend.
• Fling – metallic cranberry shade with copper undertones delivers full coverage. Easy to work with it and give faded edge like Dubai.
• 24k – glittery warm yellow toned gold. Pretty dry shade in texture and does tend to chalk up with a brush or finger.
• Rose gold – medium dark reddish copper with lots of glitters. The texture of rose gold is similar to 24k, difficult to blend in with a very uneven appeal.
• Trust fund – metallic copper shade with a chunky texture due to excessive sparkles in it.
• Blessed – bronze shade with a creamy consistency and applies evenly on eyelids.

Pearlised finish

• Angelic – pretty pink with little shimmer, which is easy to work with and works even better beneath a primer.
• Moondust – it is a champagne shade with decent coverage that works better with a primer.

Matte finish

• Bossy – A plumy matte with brown undertones with a powdery consistency. Good pigmentation and easy to blend.
• Flamingo – A bright pink matte shade with cool undertones and sheer coverage.
• Shy – A stunning dusty rose that sheers out as you apply it and gives a very patchy appeal on the eyelid.
• BAE – A yellow toned pearl shade with a sheer pigmentation, ideal for highlighting the brow bone. Its dry consistency doesn’t allow even the application, and the color is too sheer.
• Black truffle – The perfect black shade that is great to create smoky eyes. It feels soft when you touch and has a super pigmentation.
• Suede – A beautiful brown shade that works better with a primer. It works well without a primer too.
• Coco – A pretty chocolate brown shade that looks gorgeous when used on the lid, it has a very chalky appearance.
• Maneater – A deep red matte with a grainy texture and excessive fallout, it is something difficult to work with.
• Henna – A matte reddish brown shade with a dry consistency, it is quite easy to blend.
• Sandalwood – A toned yellow-brown with excellent opacity and a non-drying or grainy texture.

Pros

• The shade range is excellent
• Pigmentation is great
• Some textured shadows are super creamy
• Decent lasting power

Cons

• The texture of some shadows is not satisfactory

Born on 16 December 1770, Ludwig van Beethoven was a legendary German pianist and composer. He was innovative, influential, inspirational in all he was the greatest musician of the classical era. His unique composition combined instruments and vocals, extending the horizons of the sonata, symphony, concerto and quartet music.Beethoven was a crucial figure in catapulting the Classical Era into the Romanticism. During his early age, music was taught by his father Johann van Beethoven who was also a composer. At the age of 12, he published his first official composition- a set of variations of the piano. When he was 21, he moved to Vienna, where he studied composition and gained popularity as an expert pianist.

His life was marked by struggles, he continued his career as a musician despite his increasing deafness. From the age of 25, his hearing power began to decline and by the age of 46, he entirely became deaf. Even though he got retired from performing on stage due to his loss of hearing, he continued to compose throughout his life and some of his best work actually produced after he was completely deaf.

Even with his deafness, Beethoven maintained his perfect pitch Fur Elise, Symphony No. 5, Symphony No. 7 and Missa Solemnis are some of his famous compositions, they are exceptionally great it is hard to find someone who hasn’t heard these compositions perhaps they are greatest compositions ever. His music has had an emotional and intellectual depth which still an inspiration for other artists after him.

Without the influence of composers like Beethoven contemporary music could not be what it is today. It has been said that Beethoven established the popular concept of the “artist”, a person separate from society having a profound influence over the culture.

He died on 26 March 1827 at the age of 56 and his funeral was attended by 20,000 people (estimated). Beethoven was a genius artist who knew what he could give to the world. He was about to commit suicide after he recognized he would be slowly turning deaf. The only thing that kept him alive at that time was his sense of duty to the world– to give the world his music.
