Look of the Day-Autumn Blend

Fall and Autumn are here, I always love the pretty leaves turning colors. When I was little I used to paint pictures of the fall leaves now I just paint faces! The colors that I used in this look are inspired of  the Autumn leaves :)

I've been wanting to use some of my makeup that I don't use that much, so in this look I've used all kinds of makeup brands. I did some practicing with highlighting under my eyes. I also did some contouring around my nose to make it look smaller, but it came out looking like the scarecrow (pointy nose) from Wizard of Oz, lol; so I removed the contour. I also used 5 eye shadows in this look, I normally don't use that many shadows but I was in the mood for color experimenting :) My camera didn't do my foundation any justice at all, and it made my lipstick look to bright, but anyways...here's the look.

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!



Before


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…

As of late, I've have been loving this foundation. I have gotten a tan, and this prompted me to buy a new foundation matching my new shade.
