Grammy Makeup

Like most of the world, I tuned in Sunday night to watch the 2014 Grammy Awards hosted by my favorite, LL Cool J. 

I feel like the show this year was AWESOME. And it kept getting better as it went on. From the red carpet to the final performance, I kept watching. 

Everyone gracing the red carpet looked fabulous. Here are a few of my picks for BEST MAKEUP. 


Taylor typically goes with a very well done cat eye and red lip or, a white/ silver inner corner with a nude or pink lip. Both of which I think suit her. I love this simple look on her here. Her pink pout is perfectly done and the silver inner corner really opens her face. The blue/grey shadow worked great with her eye color, really making them pop, and I think overall complemented the beautiful dress she was wearing. She looks very put together and mature, even with a simple loose pony. 


Paris looked absolutely gorgeous, as always. Sometimes Paris can seem to have a "lazy eye" but I really think its just the placement of her shadow, liner and lashes. This photo shows perfect placement of all, keeping her cheeks glowing and the center of her face bright and open. Her look was created by the fabulous Etienne Ortega, who I love. He often works with Lilly Ghalichi who always looks amazing. Paris' look here is simply enhancing her natural beauty. 


Beyonce can always rock the red lip and look stunning. I really like the smokey eye although, I think it could have been slightly more enhanced with some lashes, which she never wears. Everything here works. I probably would have groomed her brows slightly more. 


This chick. Her face looked as if she just stepped of a fall runway. AND I LOVE IT. There's something super dark and high fashion about this. Bravo. I'm loving how her lips and cheeks are the stars, with minimal liner on her lower lash line. I feel like this could be her everyday look.  


Madge is Madge. She's hit or miss and is for sure aging with grace. The first photo here looks like she recently had some work done on her face, right? Maybe a lift? I think so. That's really why I decided to include on her my list. Madonna's best when she rocks a red lip and a dark liner, a la the 80's (minus the bushy brows). PS, Madonna totally has the best eye shape. 

I loves all the different looks of the red carpet this year. Everyone looked great. Oh award season, how I love you. 

Leave some comments and let me know who you thought rocked the fiercest face this year!

Stay fab dolls,

2014 Weddings, Shoots, Bookings, Oh My!

Hi there Doll Faces! 

I hope you all have had a fabulous January thus far. 

My month has been rather exciting. I've already booked myself a few test shoots and auditions, all while continuing to book freelance jobs, interview for others and continuously network with like minded artistic professionals. My calendar is quickly beginning to fill with bookings for 2014. 


I recently joined Model Mayhem. I've heard great things about the site so a few days ago I decided to join, explore and network. So far, it seems like most of the postings and opportunities are for portfolio building, which is never a bad thing. I'll see how it goes.


I was also just invited to showcase at RAW Artists in Philadelphia sometime in mid February. I'm working to get some idea's together. I envision some type of funky fashion show, but that's just a rough draft of an idea. I'll think on it a bit longer. I would ideally like to showcase later in the year, preferably on a weekend night. I believe the night I was offered is a Wednesday. 


What else, what else? Oh! ... I found a precious kitten last weekend. And although I'm not a cat person, it was late and really cold so I brought it home. After a bunch of phone calls and even some posts on craigslist, I was able to find it a nice home. Thank goodness, It would have died with all this snow! *Yuck, snow* 

I suppose that's all I have to write about, a bunch of random things. It's late and I can't sleep so naturally I turn to social media to keep me occupied. 

I hope everyone has a really fun weekend! :) 

I promise to post something more exciting, more fabulous next time.

Miley Cyrus for Marc Jacobs!

Have you guys checked out the new Marc Jacobs campaign? Miley is rocking it hard as the new face for his Spring/ Summer 2014 line... love it!! Miley posted some of the photos on her Instagram yesterday. 

While reading a few articles today, I noticed it's not exactly getting positive attention. But I guess that's all based on who's writing the article. I love it. I think she looks fierce. 


Green Liner

How fabulous is this look?! Her lashes are pumped up, brows are perfect, lip color works so well with her complexion and the green on the lower lash line really makes her eyes pop. While scrolling on Instagram, I saw this and had to screenshot it. 

What do you guys think? Would you rock this look? 


Lime Crime!

Only because it's been on my mind for a while now... I'm dying to try Lime Crime's velvetines. I swear, this lip color is always sold out. I even signed up for the wait list on their website however, I never received an email. 

I did see not that long ago that Urban Outfitters had the velvetines on their site but they were back ordered. I've casually been checking in store when I walk by. No luck. 

Womp womp.

South Africa Pictures!

Here's a few pictures from our trip to South Africa. Enjoy! 


This was cute little pomeranian we saw at the top of Table Mountain.

These are both views of Cape Town from Table Mountain.

We went great white shark diving in Gansbaai.

These 3 pictures are all from Hout Bay in Cape Town. We actually fed the seals! 

This guy meant business. Lion Park in Johannesburg. 

Baby cub interactions at Lion Park. We went into the cage and pet them! I believe they were 3 and 4 months old.

This was our tour guide Patrick at our private reserve that we stayed at while in Kruger. 

Camps Bay. Thats Table Mountain in the background, which we just finished climbing. We had lunch in Camps Bay. It reminded me of ocean drive in Miami.

We climbed to the lighthouse at the Cape of Good Hope, where the Indian Ocean and Atlantic Ocean meet. Wild baboons! 

My Favorite! Penguins at Boulder Beach.

The rest of these are from Kruger National Park. Best trip ever!!
