Nicki Minaj Inspired Look of the Day

I love Nicki Minaj's colorful makeup. I attempted to do a Nicki Minaj look with her wearing the teal eyeshadow. I added the pink blush and the bubble gum pink lipstick that she usually wears and I also added some green contacts. The teal that I used wasn't an exact match but it was pretty and I had fun recreating this look.

Pink Nouveau-One of Nicki's fave Mac lipsticks.



-Mac Painterly paint pot as an eye base
-Mac Teal pigment on lid (I believe it's discontinued)
-2 teal colors from my Coastal Scents 88 palette in crease
-Mac NC45 Studio finish concealer as a highlight
-Mac Saddle eyeshadow in crease
-L'oreal Voluminous Curl mascara
-Elf Waterproof eyeliner in black on upper lash line
-Mac Power point pencil eye liner on lower lash line
-Elf brow kit in medium
-Fresh Look green colored contacts

-Black Opal Truly Topaz creme stick foundation
-Elf pink passion blush
- Mac Pink Nouveau lipstick
-Mac clear lip glass
-Wet n Wild Chestnut lip liner

Thanks! I thought the same thing when I posted this look. Trust me, I wish I was more creative with celebrity looks and matching colors... but we are our own worst critics.

Don't let that stop you from playing around with recreating looks, your recreation may just look better than the original :)

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…

Mac Face and Body Foundation Review

One of my most used foundations is the Mac Face and Body liquid foundation. I've been promising a  review on it, so here it is.

Product Claims
"A water-based, water-resistant foundation that provides long-lasting, natural coverage for face and/or body. Ideal for all skin types. Face and Body Foundation provides sheer, natural looking coverage in an easy to blend, water-resistant formula. The long-lasting formula is available in a wide range of colours and contains several emollients to help moisturize and condition the skin. It delivers professional looking results that meet the exacting standards of beauty photography and is ideal for perfecting the face and body."

-Price is $32.50 retail and about $19 if you're a Mac pro card member (That could be a con based on your finances).
-For the price you pay it gives you a lot of foundation. It's in a 4 fl oz bottle.
-Because it's water based it doesn't feel heavy, it feels very light on the face.
