Mermaids & Peacocks Makeup Look

MAC Up The Amp Lipstick Dark Skin

Shades of green and purple are gorgeous on brown eyes, and Emerald is the Pantone Color of the Year. So I decided to create this Peacock Feather Inspired Look. I drew inspiration from my earrings.

MAC Blush Ombre Vintage Grape

I forgot how much I love my Vintage Grape Blush!

Cheers to the long holiday weekend! 🙂


When I’m not hunting down the latest and greatest beauty products, beating a face or lacing a do, you can find me roaming the streets of NYC in my stilettos looking for the next best restaurant. Or in the kitchen trying to outdo myself from the last time.
