Daytime Smokey Eye

I love a smokey eye so I created a daytime version that wouldn't be as dramatic as an evening look. You could easily amp this look up by applying a charcoal at the outer corners of the eyes and in the crease of the eye. And apply a darker gray on the upper lid. Use a black eyeliner to outline the upper and the lower rim of the eye. And vola you have an evening look.

Plum/Green and Gold Eye

I enjoy being a make-up artist and I wanted to share with you some of my work.

The model is me and the make up application can be worn day or night.I first applied a plum eyeshadow on the upper lid and a green in the crease of the eye and a gold on the brow bone directly under the eyebrow. I used a black eyeliner to line the upper lid and I used the same liner a 1/4 way on the bottom rim of the eye. And I added a cat eye for excitement.

Fashion-Steve Madden Shoes

Ok I have a pair of Steve Madden shoes, and no where to wear them. I love these shoes and I've had them for over a year, and never ever wore them! And if I never wear them, I will never part with them. Tell me what you would wear with them, and where you would wear them.

Discoveries-Market Street

There is a gem of a place, right in the heart of Inglewood, California. That place is historic in every way! It is Market Street. I was there today; I go there because of a beauty supply store that I discovered. This beauty supply has everything you could ever need, and it is a very large store. So I go and make my purchase of things that I needed, which was, my very first lace front wig. I will take pictures of me in the wig for a future post. Well as I completed my purchase, I proceed outside, and I saw the most beautiful buildings! This street has been here since the1940's and the buildings are gorgeous-very art deco. So I had to take pictures and share them with you. The jewel on the whole street is the old Fox Theater, wow she speaks volumes, she's like a great movie star that will live on in every ones memories! She is tired though and in need of a face lift, and I discovered (with a little research) that she just might get that long deserved renovation! I also discovered that the current owner is a former NFL linebacker, Mark Fields. I took pictures of a few other buildings, on Market Street, and had a great time discovering little sweet treasures today!

Fashion Show - Moschino Cheap And Chic

Oh my!! I saw the most adorable collection ever! It was whimsical and animated but a lot of the clothes I honestly could see myself wearing. This collection put a smile on my face. I'm not going to say anything more about it, I think you should watch it for yourself and tell me what you think.

So cute!

Fashion Week - Front Row

Do you ever wonder who really sits in the front row of fashion shows during Fashion Week, I know I do! I remember watching Sex In The City the movie, Samantha got tickets for the girls to attend a fashion show during fashion week, Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte where so impressed to be setting on the front row. What's up with the front row, besides being able to see better then those in the back rows, and who gets to sit in those seats? Well with a little research I found out!

The A-List reads like a who's who in fashion and in Hollywood, beginning with Anna Wintour (I think she is great at what she does) editor and chief of Vogue US, Joe Zee editor and chief of Elle US and Harper's Bazaar US, and there are several more influential editors that are also on that list. Along side the editors are trendsetting stylist like Marie Amelie Sauve of Vogue Paris and Italia and Grace Coddington of Vogue US. There are powerful buyers and popular bloggers to add to the front row also! Blogger Tavi Gevinson, Style Rookie is the name of her blog, and the fascinating thing about her is, she's only 13! Another blogger who gets invited to sit in the front row is Bryanboy, blog by the same name. Now who are the celebrities who frequent the front row of these fashion shows? Well, there are any number of celebs, the list is so long I can only list a few. The following celebs have been seen on the front row; Sarah Jessica Parker, Pamela Anderson, Victoria (Posh) Beckham, Claudia Schiffer, Gwyneth Paltrow and Rihanna.

The reason the front row is so hot, is the designer’s clothes. The designers’, need the A-list to influence the public to buy their clothes, because celeb opinions do matter, they are placed in the front row because of who they are and strength of their public appeal. There are only four weeks that will influence the way we dress from season to season, and there is no other event that will have the same impact on fashion-as Fashion Week. So the A-list is on hand to promote it, to experience the sites and sounds of the latest outfits for the upcoming season, and to socialize with one another.
