Copper Sparkle LOTD

One of the makeup trends for this winter season is metallic eyes and red lips. I voted in my poll on the top right side of my blog, that I was going to try both trends (metallic eyes and red lips). This look is starring the beautiful frost copper sparkle pigment. Since the pigment is very sparkly and has copper flecks in it, I kept the browbone and crease area very neutral and subdued. Here's the look.



-Elf brow kit in medium
-Urban Decay primer potion
-Mac Copper Sparkle pigment on lid
-Mac Texture e/s in crease
-Mac Studio Finish concealer NC45 as highlight
-L'oreal Double Extend illuminator mascara in black quartz
-Black Radiance creme liner in black
-Mac Engraved powerpoint eye pencil on top & bottom lashlines


-Black Opal Cream to Powder foundation in Heavenly Honey
-Bobbi Brown peach corrector under eyes
-Mac Gingerly blush
-Mac Blunt blush to contour


-Avon glimmersticks lip liner in red brick
-Mac Red lipstick

Will you try the metallic eyes, red lips, both or neither this season? Be sure to vote in my poll on the top right!

This look is really pretty Gabs! You know I love my neutrals, lol, so this is right up my alley.

I checked 'red lips' in your poll. I scored some reds from Cherry Culture a few weeks ago, so I've been slowly playing with them trying to see which work best. My goal is to get very comfy with red lips in the coming months!

@Sharon: Thanks, girl... you're so sweet :-)

@Agent Elle: Thanks, Lynnie. I have been doing a lot of neutrals lately. I guess I'm getting hooked on them.

I'm glad you're going to do red lips, I know it's going to look good cause red looks hot on everybody.

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…
