I'm going to The Makeup Show!

Hey, Glamour Dolls!

As you know this time of the year is busy with all kinds of makeup shows from IMATS to The Makeup Show. I didn't blog about IMATS NYC this year because I didn't attend, this year will be different because I'm going to The Makeup Show for the 1st time ever, in NYC!

The Makeup Show is similar to IMATS, it's a trade show that presents seminars, workshops and new products. The show also features product launches, new product lines, networking opportunities and even a career fair this year! One of the biggest differences between IMATS and The Makeup Show is that IMATS is open to everyone, anyone could attend... The Makeup Show is pro only, for individuals and companies that are involved in the makeup industry-you do have to show proof of your profession upon entry.

I'm not from NYC, so; it will be a weekend getaway with a friend of mine, who is also a MUA. I'm excited as I was last year because there will be so many great companies there, I can't wait to attend some of the workshops plus I'm planning on making several product/makeup purchases :-) BEYOND EXCITED!

Will you be attending The Makeup Show NYC? If so, I will be in attendance for both days and would like to meet you :-)

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.

Ultimate Beauty Seminar with Sam Fine & Renny Vasquez Experience! (Pic Heavy)

Hello Dolls,

I'm finally back...didn't mean to take this long writing this follow up post, but; life (as always) gets in the way. Here I am, back in the new year, and I'm hoping 2016 is starting off wonderful for all that are reading this!

Back to the post, the Ultimate Beauty Seminar was well ABOVE & BEYOND my expectations! I loved every minute of it. I learned so much and I saw so much, it will be hard to detail everything (as much as I like to do), but I will give an overview. If you want to go straight to some of the tips that I learned, scroll down to the bottom :-).

Next, Renny did the eyes and he did a natural cut crease. He used a very small fan brush to create the cut crease line, the little fan brush made it so easy to do, in under a minutes time. The brush he used was an Esum T11 mascara fan brush.
