Olives and Grapes

Hey Divas! So I finally got around to getting this look done and uploaded on my YouTube.

As I mentioned in this tutorial, I believe that although this look is very much “Spring-y”, in some weird way, I totally can see this as a beautiful Fall/ Autumn Look, outside of the normal oranges and browns.

So if you would like to introduce a real pop of color into your Autumn Look, check out the tutorial.

Shimmering Gold

19 Oct

Shimmering Gold Look

I recently did a beautiful Shimmering Gold on a lovely young lady, Monet. She and her husband were taking professional photos for their Anniversary I believe (forgive me Monet if I’m dead wrong. LOL!). I’m usually not one to do “Matchy Matchy” with someone’s outfit and makeup, rather I try to do looks that compliment or accentuate the overall look, it’s something about her fit that had me saying “I HAVE to do pure gold and bright turquoise” I just have to! Mama was rocking this beautiful cream, lightweight blouse that had these beautiful beadings and embellishments of gold accents and teal stones. She had on simple, lightwashed slim-fit jeans and THESE BAD ASS gold-glitter, peep-toe, 5 inch heels. I mean, they were BAD! It was like Dorothy from the WIZ and RuPaul got together and made the perfect, sparkling heel! LOL! Continue reading

Flawless Foundation Application

12 Oct

Eyes: Loreal Hip Duo "Sculpted"

I get SOOOO  many questions here lately regarding my foundation application. I’ll be honest Divas, it’s ever changing; from cream foundations, foundation sticks to liquid or even mousse foundation, I constantly modify my application techniques, constantly perfecting it little by little.

I’m not one of those chicks that typically use specific tools to apply my foundation, i.e., a foundation brush ONLY to apply my foundation. In my search to achieve the most flawless coverage, I found a neat trick using a totally different brush meant for a different purpose altogether! Continue reading

Simply Fly Eyes 101: Gold Leaf Eyes

13 Feb

So I was playing around with some colors in one of my ABSOLUTE FAV eyeshadow palettes, the i885 Pro Palette by colouredbeautiful (http://www.makemeovercosmetics.com) and I was looking outside at that horrid SNOW, and I got to thinking, MAN I wish it was autumn time all over again. Yeh! Not summer, not spring…AUTUMN!!! Crazy right? Well, what you may not know about me is fall is one of my favorite seasons; with the crispness in the air, the golden and green colors that surround the trees, it’s really quite breathtaking to see. SO naturally, in my daydreaming, I got inspired by that desire to reverse mother nature’s natural order of things by doing it to my FACE!! Check out my latest look, Gold Leaf Eyes!
