Coolin’ out…

3 Sep

Happy Labor Day y’all! I hope you had an awesome day off from school/work. I did absolutely NOTHING productive today & it felt great! ūüėČ I heard “Sweet Life” for the first time today. It was so mellow, I instantly fell in love… ENJOY!

Celeb Looks: Brandy & Monica

12 Mar

Bran & Mo are the cutest besties in the world (next to Nikki & me of course)

Check out their new single entitled “It all belongs to me”…

Don’t you love their makeup? *snaps fingers* WERK!¬† Anybody who says brown-skinned girls can’t wear pink lipstick needs to take a look at this video. It makes me wanna stop, drop & go lipstick/ gloss shopping. And doesn’t Brandy look fantastic with curly hair?! She definitely needs to rock this look a bit more often. As far as Monica’s hair is concerned, I like long hair with ombre highlights, but I think a shorter, edgier haircut suits her better. Although I AM NOT not a fan of women caking grown @$% men with clothes, cars, rings & MacBooks… these ladies both look AND sound great, so I can’t help but love it!

And who can forget the night they won a grammy together? *tears*

FLASHBACK TIME! OMG I am still in love w/ Mekhi Phifer… LOL!

Monday Inspiration

Good morning Glams! I know Monday mornings are hard but remain positive, stay focused, work hard & just… KEEP!

FOTD: Rockstar

9 Feb

This song was HOT during my freshman year in college, LMBO! I know the video is awesomely bad, but admit that the music gets you in a “rock” mood. I had forgotten all about this song until I heard it in a Samsung commercial last week. TOO FUNNY! Anyway… let’s talk makuep! Today’s look is pretty simple, I didn’t wanna draw too much attention to my eyes, so I did a simple smoky look that allows the bright pink lipstick to pop.

PRIMER: NYX HD e/s base

BASE: NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk

SHADOW: I applied this dark pewter (metallic finish) from the Wet N Wild Lust palette over my entire lower eyelid. On my crease I used matte dark brown from the Wet N Wild Vanity palette, then I used matte peach e/s (WNW Greed palette) to highlight my brow bone area.

 

OTHER DETAILS… I used CoverGirl single e/s in Smolder to define my eyebrows & L’Oreal Collagen Mascara in Blackest Black on my eyelashes. I defined my upper lashline & waterline with Wet N Wild cream liner in black.

CHEEKS: Wet N Wild blush in Heather Silk

LIPS: Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Color in Fuchsia Fever + CO Bigelow lip gloss in Pink Mint

FACE: Estee Lauder pressed powder in Deep (05)

I received a friendly reminder that I haven’t been posting FOTDs lately… Sorry guys! The product reviews & acquisitions & Giovanni have kept me pretty busy. Speaking of Giovanni… My hair is day 3 of a twist-out. It looked a ham this particular morning, so I thought it would be a great opportunity to test out the banana clip faux-hawk. No gel on the sides this time, just a little Mane-N-Tail Leave-In conditioner before brushing it back. I excluded the hair in front from the banana clip, to give me a bang. Here’s the side view…


At last…

It’s surreal when an iconic artist like Etta James passes away… ūüė¶¬†
