Runway to Reality: Celine Paris Fashion Week

I love looking at runway shows to get inspiration.  The runway makeup looks are often beautiful, sometimes over the top, and usually not very practical for real life. I follow many makeup artists on Instagram who craft the looks that shape the trends for the coming season, and love to come up with ways to translate their artistry into something I can wear on the personal runway that is my life ;)  I always have fun doing these types of looks, and you can check out another one HERE.

Winter Skin Rescue


Winter is here!  The past few days have been a bit chilly in the ATL, and chances are you skin is feeling the crunch of the icy weather.  I wanted to share with you my tried and true method of hydrating my skin and keeping it flake free.

Real Deal Beauty

Ok....real talk.  Most days I don't have time for a full face of glam makeup. Ok....even more real talk. Most days I barely have more than 3 minutes to do any makeup at all.  I sleep until the last possible moment that will give me a total of 10 minutes to put on clothes and get out of the house.  Hopefully that means I get to brush my teeth but no promises.... YIKES!  With the little time I give myself, I make sure every second counts when it comes to putting makeup on.  Here are some of the products I use to do my every day, real deal makeup.

Nude vs. Red: Which is SEXIER?

Valentine's Day is upon us again, and hopefully you have some romantic plans for the weekend.  I had fun creating several different looks last year in celebration of LOVE.  Check those out HERE.

2015 Grammy Awards

Last night was the 2015 Grammy Awards, one of my all time favorite nights of the year.  I may love music more than makeup....yes, it is possible....and I look forward to this event every year.  The combination of celebrating music as well as the possibility of seeing some incredible performances keeps me tuned in every year.  This year, my love of Annie Lenox reached even higher.  If you didn't see her performance with Hozier, then stop reading and click HERE immediately.

Bare Minerals The Magic Act

Hopefully you have checked out my holiday picks for 2014, and have added a few of the suggestions under the Christmas tree this weekend.  I have been loving the items I picked up at the Sephora preview party, but I also added the Bare Minerals The Magic Act eye and cheek palette to my collection shortly thereafter to take advantage of the huge Sephora Sale.
