Virgin Indian Hair from @Salonlabs

I received some very beautiful hair from Salonlabs to review on my YT Channel and to also make a wig with.  So i'm showing you the completed wig here along with the makeup I did to compliment the very dark hair that i'm not use to wearing.  I wrote a post on my Wigmaking Blog all about the hair and how it preforms with lot of photos of the wig, to read that post Click Here.

Lookbook ~ Featuring KVD Mi Vida Loco Palette

KVD Mi Vida Loco Palette

I wanted this post to be an outfit collaboration also but I didn't have time to set my camera up on the tripod and take photos outside.  I was wearing a very pretty pink ruffled skirt with matching pink strappy sandals by Coach.  This is my first time playing around with the KVD Mi Vida Loca palette and I really like it.  The only difference in the photo is the mac lipstick. I ultimately went with KVD Bauhaus Liquid Liquid but forgot to switch out the lipstick in the photo.

Swatches | Concealers for Women of Color



I didn't start using concealers until I reached the ripe age of 50...now i'm in my mid 50's and let's just say, I don't really need them but I like how they enhance the look of my eyes.  There seems to be a wide variety of concealers from high-end to low-end in a variety of shades for African American and women of darker skin tones.  Over the last 5yrs, i've seem to have collected quite a bit. Some I have replaced due to the fact that I seem to keep reaching for them repeatedly.  Below are my swatches and how I feel about each one.

Swatches ~ MUFE Duo Mat HD Powder Foundation on Brown Skin + Video

MUFE Duo Mat HD Powder Foundation

I am in love with this foundation! I know... I said the same things about Mac, Nars, Chanel, Lorac... etc. but there's something a little different about this one.  The MUFE HD powder foundation can be applied wet or dry and it doesn't get real chalky once you wet your sponge.  This foundation applies very evenly without streaking or looking powdery. The foundation comes in a double compact with a sponge in the bottom half that's well ventilated with holes so it can dry between uses.

Lookbook ~ Birthday Makeup I Turned 56 today!

Birthday Makeup I Turned 56 today!

I turned 56 today and this was my makeup that I wore out to dinner tonight with my family.  Every birthday I like to play in makeup and take lot of photos just to see how I have aged from the year before.  I had my eyelids done as you know so I look drastically younger than I did last year.

In spite of the hot weather her in Los Angeles where I live, I manage to wear makeup today because I had a function to go to.
Face:  Lancome Dual Finish Powder Foundation in 420 Bisque and 540 Suede.  I try and create an bronzer effect by using the lighter shade in the areas where the sun hits and the darker shade around the perimeter of my face to warm it up a bit.

Fashion ~ Featuring Sephora Marsala Palette + New Custom Wig + OOTD


Sephora Marsala Palette
On my way out to Ladies' Lunch which is every other Thursday gives me a chance to play in makeup, hair and clothing all at one time.  Being retired, I don't wear dresses ( in this occasion a skirt) that often so when I go out to lunch or certain events with my husband, I always wear them.  It was 81 degrees here in Los Angeles today, so the perfect day to wear something light and sheer.

Swatches ~ Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24H Oil Free Foundation on Brown Skin


Lancome Foundation Swatches on Brown Skin

I've been loving the Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24H Oil Free Foundation lately!  After uploading my latest post on all the Lancome powder foundation, concealer, primer and mascaras found HERE, I decided that I needed a liquid foundation to compliment the powder foundation.  The powder just didn't give me enough coverage using it alone so found the perfect match to compliment it.

Lancome Dual Finish Foundation, Concealer & Skin Perfector

I picked up a few Lancome products recently to try.  My intentions was to pick up a liquid foundation and do a full makeup look using these products but I really wanted to try them while I was on my vacation over the MLK weekend.

Swatches ~ MAC Dark Majesty and Gentrified Fluidlines


MAC Dark Majesty and Gentrified Fluidlines are truly some gorgeous Fluidlines from Mac Cosmetics and are both limited editions.  What you should know is that these Fluidlines can be used as bases to compliment your eyeshadows and to keep them from creasing.  I have been collecting all of the Fluidlines for about 10 years and have all of them in my collection.
