Lavender and Violet Look of the Day

I have a half a dozen Makeup For Ever shadows that I haven't even worn yet plus I have tons of pigments that I hardly use and are literally collecting dust, so I thought I would do a look featuring my "not frequently used" pigments and shadows. I completely forgot how much I love pigments, I'm going to use them more often!

I have small eyes and because of that I normally line my lower lash line two thirds of the way, whenever I line my full lower lash line with black liner it makes my eyes look smaller.



-Mac Painterly paint pot as a base
-Mac Quietly pigment (limited edition-lavender color) on the inner half of my lid
-Mufe #92 brilliant matte purple eyeshadow outer half of my lid
-Mac Saddle (golden orange-brown) as a crease color
-Mac NC 45 Studio Finish concealer as a highlight
-Elf Waterproof eyeliner in black on upper lash line
-Avon Mark eyeliner on lower lash line in black
-L'oreal Voluminous Curl mascara in black/brown
-Elf brow kit in medium


-Mufe HD foundation in 173
-Mac Vintage Grape ombre blush limited edition (I never use it!)


-Wet n Wild chestnut lip liner
-Mac Violetta lipstick (pro item)

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…
