Create A Scandal: Sasha Fierce

Looky looky!!! We’ve got Nik and Johnny Lavoy! Learn how the celebrity hair and makeup artist re-creates the Sasha Fierce look. If I wasn’t scared of heat damage and/or still wore tracks (or do we call them hair extensions now?!? lol), I’d be all over this look! Give it time y’all, give it time…

Create A Scandal: Chanel Iman, Page Six


Miss Chanel Iman graced the Cover of Page Six, and did she do her thing?!? Yes! She was rightfully named after Coco Chanel, and rips the runways of all the hottest designers. Seriously, all of them. Louis, YSL, Mcqueen, and any other Fashion House that we all lust over.

When asked about the difficulties of being a Woman of Color in the industry, she responded: “It’s not just black girls. It’s ethnic girls in general: Brazilian girls, Hispanic. You really don’t see a lot of Asians either. A lot of designers think that if every girl on the runway looks exactly alike, then people will come to the shows and buy the clothes because they won’t be focusing on the models….It’s not even just runway either… us ethnic girls should be getting a lot of the covers too! I would love to be on half of the campaigns these [white] girls are booking, all looking exactly alike. It’s not right. It’s not fair.”

To get the look that Miss Chanel is rocking, try Aquadisiac eye shadow and Pretty Please lipstick by MAC Cosmetics. I was going to guess that was the shadow! (These suggestions were found in the credits of the article, linked below) Make sure you read the entire Page Six article “New York’s Next Top Model“.

Did you know that Chanel Iman has her own Youtube Channel??? It’s called ChanelImanTV!

Scott Barnes, 50% Off!!!!


Sad but true, Scott Barnes bit the dust. Don’t you remember all of the stories that I wrote about his line??? I seriously believe that this line was luxorious. The products were top quality and were absolutely celebrity worthy. Actually, many of the products were custom made for Jennifer Lopez. He added them to his line so we could all be a little like Jenny from the Block. Rumor has it that he will be coming out with a newer, re-vamped line. I even talked about him on a few videos. Until then, get some goodies at Beauty.com. If you don’t get anything else, PLEASE get Fever Eye Ice!!! Me encanta mucho!!!

Quest For the Perfect Foundation

Finding foundation for Woman of Color could almost be considered a catastrophe from the beginning. Supermodel Iman had to create her own bases when she began modeling, because a shade for her did not even exist. I remember reading about her brand when I was younger, I bought my first foundation from there. It was the wrong shade.

Today, I’m introducing a new column on my blog, all about foundations. There are a ton of factors to finding your best match, including the texture, color, brand, etc. There are a bunch of questions your should ask yourself when looking for a foundation.

What do I want my skin to look like?
Do I want a foundation suitable for my skin type, or the look of my skin?
Do I want to follow trends in the fashion industry?
Do I want different foundations for different looks?

The list could go on and on. I’ve already created quite a few stories about Foundations, but I would like to get more in depth. If you have a foundation that has worked for you, one to recommend, one that you hated, or anything else, feel free to e-mail me (link in the top toolbar) so that I may feature you.

Earlier this evening, I created a video with my random thoughts and tips about how to choose your perfect foundation. Hopefully this will give you some more things to think about!


Make Up For Ever Foundation Tutorials

Happy Monday!!!

Over the weekend, I did a a few videos showcasing one of my favorite brands ever, Make Up For Ever. All of the products are made to resist water and everything is made in Paris. After I created a video using High Definition Foundation, people started to tell me that they wanted to know more!!!

First up, Face and Body Liquid Makeup. This is a super sheer formula that evens out your skin beautifully. You can also apply it on your body to even out your skin tone. I wore it once with a teeny tiny dress, and it was amazing just how great my legs looked.


The other is Mat Velvet + Matifying Foundation. If you want natural, matte looking skin, this is the foundation for you! If you have oily skin like I do, this is sure to keep you shine free!!!

Hopefully these videos will give you more insight on the tons of other foundations to choose from. I have packed away my MAC Foundations, and MUFE have certainly become my staple!
