Tagged: This or That?!

Hey Glamour Dolls,

I am "it!" I've been tagged again.  This time I've been tagged by Kia from Yummy 411. Kia shares tons of good information on her blog from: natural hair to product reviews and FOTD's.

I especially love that she and I, both, live in the same area, so, she keeps me up to date with the latest beauty stores and sales that are happening in our area. Please check out her blog and if you live in the DMV area, you need to follow her blog right NOW!

If I had to choose, these are my preferences!

BLUSH- I love the pop of color that blush gives.

LIPSTICK- I like my lips to be noticeable when I wear makeup, gloss is often to sheer to provide the look that I want.

MASCARA- I love how mascara makes eyes look wide open and, it makes your lashes curl and it gives you that extra daintiness...mascara can take you from drab to fab in seconds!  Besides something on my lips, it's the only form of makeup that I wear everyday.


CONCEALER- Concealer is way more pigmented and covers better than foundation. It's something about applying concealer to only the spots that need it -it makes your face look more natural as opposed to a layer of foundation, in my opinion.

COLOR, color and more color! Neutral has always bored me, even in makeup.

PRESSED- Very convenient, I can take it anywhere and it delivers a great color payoff.

BRUSHES- Brushes all day! My makeup application is ten times better with brushes, there are just certain brushes that I can not do without.

LIPSTICK- I'm a gloss girl. I have a few lipsticks, but I always go for gloss. I love the slick, shiny look.

I'm gonna cheat and say BOTH! I love the combo of liner/mascara. An instant boost especially when I'm wearing my "bummy" sweats lol.

CONCEALER-Been wearing concealer by itself for a while now. It's easy to apply and travels better than foundation. I prefer foundation more for when I am going out somewhere fancy. Not for daily wear.

I love both, but I do neutral eyes every day. For me, neutrals include brown, bronze, gold, taupe, purples, and greens.

PRESSED-Agree about the convenience. No mess, no fuss. I do love pigments though, but I never travel with them. I always put them on before I go.

BRUSHES- Agree about brushes. It's between brushes and my fingers.

@Lily: No problem, you have really nice posts.

@Agent Elle: Great minds think alike, we agree on so many makeup choices :)

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…
