GLAM All-Star Voyage: Makeup Cruise! Part 2





Hello Dolls!

It's been a while... there have been sooo many things I've wanted to post but never got around to doing it. I'm going to do my best to make up for it now that I'm back. Last year, I attended the GLAM All-Star Voyage makeup cruise and this year I will be attending the same cruise for it's second voyage! I loved increasing my expertise about makeup application and vacationing at the same time, plus it inspired me in so many ways.

This year, we're leaving out of New Orleans and I'll be taking two classes again like last year. I'm taking a class from Lauren Nicely, which is the A Nicely Face: Bridal edition class, and I'm also taking a class from Alexandra Butler, which is the A Beautiful Face: Makeup 103 class. I've taken classes from both of them before and I love how informative they are yet down to earth. Can't wait to see what's store this time!

A detailed post of my experience plus pictures will follow when I return.

How I Refurbished my Louis Vuitton Speedy...

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…

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

Pros
-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.
