Simple Beauty Look




So, I wanted to do a more simpler full-face beauty look that can be worn everyday. This can be an ideal look for those that like simple looks or for those that work in a more conservative environment, it also can be a look to wear on an interview or a night out on the town. It's a simple look with a pop of lip color. The lip color can be changed to any lip color you prefer but the eye look is probably as simple as you can get. This look only took about 20 minutes to apply. Here's a list of the products I used:

EYES
-Urban Decay Primer Potion to prime my eyes
-Mac Naked eye Pigment on the lid an crease area
-Mac Ricepaper eyeshadow as my highlight color under the brow bone
-ELF Waterproof liquid eyeliner for the upper lash line
-Mac Smolder eye liner on the lower lash line
-Mac Zoomlash Mascara in black

FACE
-Mac Studio Finish Concealer in NW40 to spot treat my uneven areas
-Mac Studio Fix Powder in C6
-Mac Margin Blush

LIPS
-Mac Current lip liner
-Mac Viva Glam VI Special Edition lipstick
-Mac Love Nectar lustreglass lip gloss

These were the products that I chose to use. You don't have to use the same brand that I use, you can substitute using any brand of makeup that you choose to get the same look.



PS I started filling in my brows but I didn't do it for this look because my brows desperately need to be waxed!

Loooooove it! Nice and "springy!" I would have never thought to use Love Nectar (my favorite spring gloss) over VG VI.

Thanks Lynette! I didn't like the way Love nectar or Viva Glam VI looked on me by itself so I combined the two together and it came out nice!

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…
