My Latest Beauty Read...

I usually read a beauty book at least once a month to keep up with the latest beauty trends and to sharpen my makeup skills. I'm reading Instyle's Ultimate Beauty Secrets. I love reading my monthly subscription to Instyle, so I had to read this book.

It was recommended to me by one of my coworkers since she knows I'm a beauty junkie...thanks Kibbi, hope she's reading this. This book features tips, tricks and short cuts to create the perfect look. It's broken up into sections: skin, foundation and concealer, cheeks, eyes, lips and nails plus some extras.



Why it's helpful?


It includes advice from makeup artists, celebrities, dermatologists and beauty editors who have  learned personally from experience what works and what doesn't work.It has some of the most beautiful and colorful pictures, I read a beauty book last month that had all black and white pictures....come on now, really?! One of the most beautiful things about beauty is color! How can you have a b…

*Updated* Everyday/Workplace Makeup Look

A little while I go, I did my everyday work /place makeup look...that look has changed, so; I wanted to show my updated everyday look that I wear to work.

I work at a library (library's are definitely not as conservative as a lot of people think as far as beauty and style) I can definitely wear color there, but; I choose to wear a more subdued makeup look.

The look consists of a polished face (concealer and powder), bronzer, mascara and a pink lip (I'm really loving pink lips right now!) if I have extra time, I may put eyeshadow on my lids. Here is the look...





Products I wear daily:



MAC SELECT COVER UP CONCEALER
I wear this concealer in NC45, it gives just the right amount of coverage for my dark circles and acne scars without looking made up. It provides a satin, natural finish...perfect for the office.

MAC BLOT POWDER IN DARK
To set the concealer, I apply this blot powder. I don't like to look to matte, so; I apply this powder only to the spots that get oily during the d…

Dr. Miracle's 2 in 1 Tingling Shampoo and Conditioner Review

I have had severe dandruff for as long as I can remember. It doesn't matter if I wash my hair at home or by a stylist or how much or how little I wash my hair, I get flakes religiously 5 days after washing my hair, sometimes sooner than that. Since I've cut my hair the flakes are my noticeable and very embarrassing.

I asked my stylist what she recommends for dandruff and she told me Dr. Miracle's 2 in 1 shampoo and conditioner. I've been using it for a month now and here are my thoughts.

Jill Scott's Block Party Concert... Plus Mini Look of the Day!

Hey Glamour Dolls,

It feels like a while that I've posted, I've been busy with an important project that's been taking up my time both mentally and physically...that explains the lack of posts, but; I did manage to have some much needed fun this past weekend at Jill Scott's Block Party Concert!

I saw Jill Scott last year with Maxwell and she was great but this year she was AMAZING! She's a great performer! Such raw talent and fantastic voice.

Her Block Party included Mint Condition, Anthony Hamilton, DJ Jazzy Jeff and Doug E. Fresh... the concert had an old school, neo soul and r'b feel.  The concert was not that far from where I live at the Verizon Center in Washington, DC.

Here are the pics!
















We had a good time, my friend that went with me to the concert is a makeup artist as well. Her makeup always looks flawless! I don't know everything she had on but she did have on the Maybelline Fit me foundation, one of the La Femme blushe…
