Nicki Minaj Inspired Look of the Day

I love Nicki Minaj's colorful makeup. I attempted to do a Nicki Minaj look with her wearing the teal eyeshadow. I added the pink blush and the bubble gum pink lipstick that she usually wears and I also added some green contacts. The teal that I used wasn't an exact match but it was pretty and I had fun recreating this look.

Pink Nouveau-One of Nicki's fave Mac lipsticks.



-Mac Painterly paint pot as an eye base
-Mac Teal pigment on lid (I believe it's discontinued)
-2 teal colors from my Coastal Scents 88 palette in crease
-Mac NC45 Studio finish concealer as a highlight
-Mac Saddle eyeshadow in crease
-L'oreal Voluminous Curl mascara
-Elf Waterproof eyeliner in black on upper lash line
-Mac Power point pencil eye liner on lower lash line
-Elf brow kit in medium
-Fresh Look green colored contacts

-Black Opal Truly Topaz creme stick foundation
-Elf pink passion blush
- Mac Pink Nouveau lipstick
-Mac clear lip glass
-Wet n Wild Chestnut lip liner

I look at a lot of beauty blogs where women are recreating celeb make-up looks and yall are just so freakin talented. I'll get there one day, lol.

Thanks! I thought the same thing when I posted this look. Trust me, I wish I was more creative with celebrity looks and matching colors... but we are our own worst critics.

Don't let that stop you from playing around with recreating looks, your recreation may just look better than the original :)

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…
