What’s new at Ulta – August 2018

Here are the new items currently at your local Ulta stores. Let’s also check out what the reviews are saying also: So, the first thing I was thinking when I heard about this product release was, ‘Is this a play on the Too Faced ‘Better Than Sex’ mascara’? But…then they made these claims and then I was like ‘here we go’…..     I mean, excuse me NARS…are we playing the percentage game also? A while back, Too Faced cosmetics got called out for doing somewhat of the same but it came down to how to determine the percentage and it was just all a bit odd and turned some customers a bit off. Anyway, on the the reviews so far: 😐😐😐😐😐😐😐 Nothing, so far. I guess because the product is so new, there are no reviews on Ulta’s website yet but….. usually there are a lot of makeup lovers, waiting for a product to be released so they can give

Okay so this post may be a bit touchy but, whatever, right? Anyone that has been in the makeup world for a while or has had their makeup done by professionals over the years can tell you that the Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder is the standard. For some magical reason, it seems that no matter how good you are at doing your makeup, this translucent setting powder takes your beauty game to the next level. Even if you did not know what it was, you’ve seen the container. It seems that when you buy this powder, it lasts forever. Here’s a photo of it: Yes. There she is  ↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑  The magical, unicorn dandruff called Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder. Sigh…….

Berny Martin : Founder of Midwest Fashion Week

     Throughout my travels in an unbiased quest to bring to my audience fashion and the unique designers behind them, my recent travels took me into the city of Chicago, affectionately known as the ‘Heart of America’. My destination in the Windy City? Midwest Fashion Week of course, which was founded and guided by Mr. Berny Martin. As a fan of Mr. Martin’s work, I have followed Midwest Fashion Week over the years as they have acquired numerous mentions in notable magazines such as IndyStar.com (USA Today), ELLE Men, and Ok! Magazine. Midwest Fashion Week not only brings forth talent and visions via the runway, but also raises money for charities and non-profit organizations.      Mr. Martin is no ordinary Haitian-born gentleman with just ‘good taste’, but an international fashion revolutionary in his own right. Notably a graduate of Purdue University, Berny Martin is also the Founder and CEO of Catou Wear, which serves on leaps and bounds beyond simply ‘made’ fashion designs.      Martin’s Catou Wear brings

New Orleans Fashion Week 2018 – NOLA Couture

     Prior to going to my first Fashion Week event in New Orleans, I had a small hint of anxiety. Its almost like going to a new school on the other side of town. The surroundings are foreign, you find yourself a bit lost and unsure. But then……you see something that’s familiar….like the kid from your old school that transferred just like you did. Now the moment is erased of unease and has been replaced with a sense of propinquity.      That’s how I felt, walking into Fashion Week alone, not knowing anyone and trying to find my footing. As I watched the runway show and took photos, that sense of ease came when I heard the hostess announcing NOLA Couture. It was a company I knew of, pulling me into the moment, not only as a lonely, wondering blogger, but as a spectator, watching a place that I am familiar with be apart of the show. Speaking

Holographic and glitter makeup favs UNDER $15 🔥🔥🔥

    While I have spent my share hours of my little life in front of a mirror, attempting to do my makeup before a date, important events, or just a day to cover blemishes, one trend that has gotten the masses out to the makeup aisles…..holographic and glitter makeup. Yes, dear reader, I am aware that your favorite YouTube beauty gurus have attempted to kill the holographic/glitter craze of 2017 but the reality is….it just takes some of us normal people time to come around to what the latest trend is. Sometimes the latest trends don’t fit into our lifestyle in which we have transitional time in which we come around to trying new makeup ideas. Other times, new makeup trends cost us not only our time, but extra money. That’s right, it can tend to put a dent in other everyday things that are standard so, buying new makeup can be considered a ‘treat yourself’ moment, let alone a
