28 Kisses, Love bugs!

I hardly do these types of things but I need to blog more and this seems like a great way to get started.

Nykki Talks Beauty is having a different kind of blogger link up (quite fun if you ask me) and I thought I'd join in. The aim is to post 28 pictures of 28 lipsticks for the month of January. I don't wear lipstick every day so this is going to be interesting. Stay tuned!

Nude Lipstick all on the Paperrrr!

Ok that doesn't sound as good as red lipstick but say what! Today we focus on nudes. When I'm not rocking a red lip, my fave go to look is always a nude (or bare) lip. I have quite a collection of nudes so I had to choose the ones I really love which was hard to do! But here they are. I've found that pinky or peachy nudes look best on my skin tone because they do not wash me out. Maybe you can find your perfect nude by looking at my swatches. For reference I'm an NC44/45 in MAC.

My Laptop Clutch- Jeremy Payne of Fashion is Payne

So I have this amazing designer friend. And he always he always wears these amazing pieces that I'm forever wanting to take from him. Case in point, we had a meeting for the Odini Sutherland shoot that I posted about prior and he had this gorgeous bag that he had made himself (to carry his lap-top, note pads etc) I was in looooove and commissioned one from him on the spot.

Gah! I am totally smitten with it already and while I fully intend to use it for my lappy/play-book/kindle....I can also see me using this to funk up an outfit for girls' night out or even a date night. He was worried that I may not like the red but I actually LOVE that part of it a lot. So cute! SO me!

If you're looking to getyour hands on one you can contact Jeremy via his Facebook page. He also designs AMAZING clothing (see below)

Are Revlon's Colorburst Lipsticks being discontinued?

If there ever was a make-up panic attack I'd be having one right now. While scrolling through my blog feed today I read a blog post from Tastes like Glitter about the Revlon Color-burst lipsticks being discontinued. I hope this isn't the case because these lippies are AWESOME. I've got about six of these and they are exactly what I look for in a lipstick. *sigh* I need to do a review on these but if you've never tried them now may be the time to get your hands on some if you ever see them around. I hate when companies discontinue great products. Bleh

Photo-Shoot -Odini Sutherland Menswear Collection

I recently did the make-up for a photo-shoot for a local designer (Odini Sutherland) to be featured in the next issue of Vincy E-zine. I can't post all of the pictures but here's a sneak peek of what's to come. Odini has a love for fashion, more particularly menswear and produced some interesting and colorful pieces for her first line. The team had a blast shooting yesterday and I can't wait for the issue to be published! 

These pictures were taken with my phone. The official photographs were shot by local photographer Jamila Soso-Vincent. Clothing was provided from Odini's collection as well as another local designer and stylist for the shoot Jeremy Payne. Make-up was done by myself. 

Stay connected via my official Facebook page for more updates on this shoot.
