Wet n Wild "Lust" Look of the Day

This is look # 2 in my Wet n Wild series. This is the Lust palette. It consists of 2 white colors, a matte purple, shimmery silver and 2 smokey purples colors mixed with shimmer. I intended this to be a purple-plum look but after I saw it NOT becoming the look I wanted, I just kept blending until I came up with something decent and came out being a purple smokey eye. This is my very first true smokey eye.



-Elf brow kit in medium
-Mac Painterly paint pot as a base
-matte purple in the inner half of my lid
-matte deep purple on the outter half of my lid
-silver and shimmery purple colors in my crease
-Mac NC 42 Studio Finish concealer as my highlight
-Mark Eyemarker eyeliner on upper and lower lash line
-matte purple smudged into my lower lash line for a smokey effect
-Maybelline Falsies Volum mascara


-Black Opal Truly Topaz creme stick foundation (I think this is becoming my fave foundation!)
-Mac NC45 Studio Finish concealer under eyes
-Mac C6 Studio Fix powder
-Mac Gingerly blush


-Nyx Chestnut lip liner
-Maybelline Noteworthy Nude lipstick 


Very pretty! I love the way it turned out. :)

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…
