Nars Eyeshadow Duo Look of the Day

I'm a a big fan of Nars makeup but I really don't get to buy their makeup to often. I wanted to do a look using the Nars Mediterranne eyeshadow duo which consists of 2 colors: a muted gold and a burnt orange. The orange is so pretty and vibrant.

I also used Nars Taj Mahal blush... this blush is very pigmented so I used just a little on my cheeks and blended it out. BTW-Taj Mahal is a blush that I highly recommend for any women! After doing this look, I really didn't like it. It didn't come out the way I wanted it (couldn't find the right camera angle, eyebrows need to be done again, etc)... but I decided to post it anyway :(

Mediterranee e/s duo on left, Taj Mahal blush on right.

I bought a new camera and still trying to figure out the right angle to take pics, please excuse the cut off parts.



-Mac Painterly paint pot as an eye base

-Mac Lord it Up (bronze gold) liner on lower lash line
-Maybelline falsies mascara
-Elf brow kit in medium

-Black Opal cream stick foundation in Truly Topaz
-Nars Taj Mahal blush on cheeks


-Wet n Wild chestnut liner

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…
