Up the Amp LOTD

This is a LOTD I did last week, this is the first time that I've worn a full face of makeup in a month...I've been either to tired or haven't had enough time. The look is nothing special, I just used a few Makeup Forever shadows that I rarely used and I used the new Glorify highlighting powder from Mac, it gives a beautiful highlight and a bronze glow to the skin. I also used my recently hauled Up the Amp lipstick. 






The Glorify highlighting powder is so pretty!

Thanks, Miss Dre!

I haven't found 1 person that doesn't love Up the Amp, it's a cult fave.
Your face is glowing! I would love if you can post more about the highlighting product you're using. It's noticeable yet natural. Love the lips, too!!!

Thanks, Nicole!

I will do a review on the highlighting powder. Hopefully I'll have it up in a week or so.

LOOOVE the lippie!! :) I have a similar color by Revlon Super Lustrous (my favorite lipstick brand) called Berry Haute.

Thank you!

I have yet to try any of Revlon's lipsticks...I hear they're pretty good.
I want to ask you about your left eye, my right has that same issue where it won't open properly. I consulted with a PS (plastic surgeon) and it's a combination of muscle and fat that needs to be removed. It's a 10min surgical procedue and i'm thinking of having it done in combination with having my hooded lids fixed, whats your thoughts?

Hey, Lily

Usually when I take pics, I partially close my eyes because the flash is so bright...that's why it looks like it does, the camera always seems to capture it with one eye slightly closed, my eyes are fine though :-)

I try to take pics with my eyes open but I always come out looking like I saw a ghost, lol.

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…
