Sephora Colorful Artist Palette Warm

Another review of new makeup that I bought! I bought this palette because most of the eye palettes and shadows that I have are cool colors and I needed to purchase a warm color palette to enhance my makeup collection/kit.

After browsing Sephora's website,( I decided to buy this palette. It's the Limited Edition Sephora Colorful Artist Palette Warm. The value is $51 but it's priced at $32. The shadows are dime-sized but will still go a long way. I have not tried the colors yet because I just received it today in the mail but already I can tell the colors are not that highly pigmented meaning that the color payoff will not be as intense as I normally like my eye shadow. But have no fear because they are ways to getting around this. I will most likey have to use a white base as my primer on my entire eye area from lash line to brow bone. A white base on the eyes makes lighter colors or even dull colors POP! The result is the color is more vibrant and pigmented. A good white eye base is NYX Jumbo Eye pencil in Milk. It can be purchased at beauty supply stores and Ebay. The price should be no more than $5. You can also use water to make the color more vibrant. Just add water to your makeup brush first and add the shadow to the brush and then apply the color to your eye and you should be able to see an immediate difference in the color vibrancy.

I do recommend this kit for anyone because it gives you 15 colors to play with in matte to shimmer finishes. It's small enough to fit in your purse and the colors are very beautiful and all the colors will look good on anyone and because the colors don't offer a lot of vibrancy- if you happen to make a mistake in applying the shadow most likely no one will be able to tell :)

How I Refurbished my Louis Vuitton Speedy...

I bought an authentic preloved Louis Vuitton Damier Speedy bag a few months back. While I was so excited to finally get the bag and wear it, I realized (at that time of buying and when I received it) that the bag had some wear on it that could use some fixing up. After searching online, I found a blogger, Lollipuff, who posted an article on how to refurbish LV bags.

Based on the recommendations in the post, I used the following products: Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, Blue Magic Metal Polish cream (tube) and Cadillac Boot and Shine leather conditioner. I also used laundry detergent and baby wipes. All of the products used can be used on any bag to spruce it up. Read on for the deets, to see how you can spruce up your handbag!


At first glance, the bag had some sheen on the exterior. Most of the brass fixtures had green tarnishing (which happens with aging of brass). The leather handles were dull. The bag had lost some of its shape. The inside was the kicker! The red interior was terrib…

Alexandra Butler's A Beautiful Face 101 :DC Makeup Class (Recap)!

This past Sunday, I had the pleasure of attending Alexandra Butler's A Beautiful Face makeup class. I met Alexandra the first time at The NYC Makeup show last May; before then I had been following her work since an interview she did on Erin Bailey's (Scandalous Beauty) beauty blog.

Alex is a beautiful and amazingly talented freelance makeup artist who currently lives in Atlanta. She worked for Mac for a while and now she's professionally freelancing on her own. She has all kinds of clients from your every day women to celebrity clients. She has done makeup for cast members from Love and Hip Hop Atlanta and also Real Housewives of Atlanta TV shows. I've always admired her flawless face makeup, especially the way she sculpts and contours or as she would say "snatched up your face."

Alex has been hosting makeup shows in several states and she made her way to DC this past Sunday, I couldn't wait (I registered back in February)! I loved the class so much, I r…
