I Dream of St. Thomas Look

Hey Dolls! I was asked to do a look with one of the NYX palettes from The Caribbean Collection. I choose to use the, “I Dream of St. Thomas e/s palette”. So, I came up with this look, which is a smoky gray eye with a pop of glitter. Now, the glitter is optional * removing glitter is a pain the butt *. I really love the NYX palettes, because of the pigmentation and price. I did a review on them, the link can be found on the bottom. Please feel free to leave any questions, and/or leave a comment. Thanks for taking the time to check out at my blog. Enjoy!

Nicki Minaj – GMA Performance

Hey Dolls! The weekend is here, FINALLY! Nicki Minaj recently performed on Good Morning America in front of millions of people. Despite her flashing everyone around the world * it’s just a nipple *, she brought her many personalities, fanatical costumes, and bold makeup to the show. I have to say, I marvel Nicki, because she by no means plays it safe with her costumes or makeup. She tends to always wear bold eyeshadow and/or glitter. So, I was ecstatic to recreate this look. Please feel free to ask any questions, and/or leave a comment. Enjoy!

Evelyn Lozada- Season 3 Reunion

Hey Dolls! Last night the world watched the reunion of Vh1’s Basketball Wives season 3.  I have to admit that all the ladies looked great last night, but Evelyn looked amazing. She rocked a $5000 silver Herve Leger dress from the Spring 2011 collection. Her shoe game is out of this world, somewhere in space lol. She rocked blue Christian Louboutin pumps* delish *. Evelyn’s ensemble wasn’t the only thing that had my attention, but her makeup was flawless. She wore a purple smoky eye with silver on the lid. The remaining of her face *cheeks, lips * was neutral. I knew right of bat; I wanted to mimic this look. I wanted everyone to be able to copy this look w/o breaking bank on high-end makeup. So, I used lower-end products to achieve this look. I had fun doing this look. Please feel free to ask any questions, and/or leave a comment. Enjoy!!!

NYX SOFT MATTE LIP CREAM


Hey Dolls, Happy Monday! I wanted to do a review on a product I’ve used a little over a month. It’s the NYX SOFT MATTE LIP CREAM ( duh, the title says it lol). I got the color “Addis Ababa”, a blue-base pink. According to NYX, “It’s neither lipstick nor lip gloss—this is matte lip cream. A new kind of pout paint that goes on silky smooth and sets to a matte finish. Soft Matte Lip Cream is surprisingly durable and, unlike some matte lipstick formulas, also moisturizing”. Now, I will agree with NYX on this lip cream being moisturizing and smooth, it’s actually better than MAC. We all know MAC’s matte lipsticks dry out your lips :-/ In addition, before applying the lip cream, be sure to moisture lips. When I used the lip cream, I noticed if you try to reapply after letting it set, your lips appear chapped & cracked. Your best bet is to remove the lip cream, and then reapply it. There are 11 colors available. The lip cream retails at $6, GREAT Price right!?!? I can’t wait to get more colors. Feel free to ask any questions, and/or leave a comment.

Naturally Devine Makeup

Hey Dolls! I know majority of the time, I tend to wear bright eyeshadow. I know some of you may be new to makeup, and/or really aren’t into the bright, bold, in your face makeup. I received a request of a more tone-down look, from a subscriber. So, I did a natural look with a pop of color. Since, Fall is right around the corner, this is a great look to rock. Enjoy!
