Updating the blog and other tidbits

Happy February 2018:

Wowzers!! The year is going by faster than expected. A lot has happened since my last post. During that time, I was busy posting on my Instagram page,ย  of the many fashion week likes I was feeling. I have changed the look of, 4373FASHIONLANE.COM. I enjoyed the last few days preparing for my experience riding on a Mardi Gras float with the, Mystic Krewe of Femme Fatale.ย Screen Shot 2018-02-05 at 4.54.16 PM

Here are some things I am working on this week and the next few days:

  • Updating 4373beautylane on InstagramScreen Shot 2018-02-05 at 4.13.11 PM.png
  • 4373beautylane, is a new instagram page, in which I wanted to highlight only beauty content. Additionally, I am learning the art of makeup and needed a place for women, such as myself, who do not want to continue spending hundreds of dollars having someone else applying our makeup, when we can accomplish this art on our own.
  • There is so much I want to accomplish with the brand, 4373…however, I know that great content requires time and effort.
  • I am a born and raised resident of New Orleans, and it’s carnival (Mardi Gras season), I parade (ride) with the Mystic Krewe of Femme Fatale. We are celebrating five wonderful years as the 1st African American all female krewe in the cities 300 year history. Mardi Gras originally began in the year 1700.
  • The first krewe, was all white, male and rich. Women were not allowed to parade and women of color were in slavery, and not considered property.
  • Even though we have the men of the Zulu Social Aid and Pleasure Club., women are not allowed voting privileges in these male dominated krewes.
  • It warms my spirit to know that we now have an organization that appreciates the lives, work and dedication of African American, professional and educated women in the city of New Orleans.
  • This slideshow requires JavaScript.

  • In the photos above, I decided I was not going to spend hundreds of dollars on hair and makeup. I styled on own hair and applied my own makeup. I think I did well for a beginner, MUA.
  • As always, please check out the latest Instagram postings for 4373fashionlane.

Youtubers review of Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty Makeup Collection

Here we are I will be uploading all weekend. I have time today, lol!!! People are saying Rihanna has set the standard for other brands to step their game up. Now, there is not a single reason for other makeup companies to launch more makeup that is inclusive and diverse. Check out Youtuber, Kasey Rayton below.

When Rhianna launches FentyBeauty, diversity wins!!


This video above features music sensation, fashion designer, creator and founder, Rihanna of Fenty Beauty. Take a look as she demonstrates the portable highlighter brush. It is magnetized and interchangeable. She also let’s you see the highlighting shimmer, which is wonderful as well.

Dear Makeup Dolls & Kens,

Today, or rather at midnight this morning, Rihanna took the beauty community by storm by launching her makeup line. No! I did not order anything yet. I am going into the store. I want to sit at a mirror, have my foundation perfectly matched and buy until I can’t anymore. I am giving Rihanna everything, the makeup community has not given me: choice. As much as I love other brands, they do not (on purpose), cater to women of warmer skin tones. If you are honest with me, they do not cater to women of extreme fairer skin complexions either. We all fall victim to the drama or fair complexion representation, in the makeup community.

I am excited for Rihanna, as if she were my own sister, taking the world by storm. She is completing this not only through her music and fashions, but through her makeup collection. Bravo! Rihanna. There has not been a woman of color doing this since IMAN. Tyra Banks has done this. However, it is not on the full fledge scale as RiRi. Her music, fashions and now makeup will give the little girls all over the world optimism. Rihanna is the island woman that we love and that dry and island love is coming to a Sephora, near you!!!!

Makeup in the news…..

  • More youtubers are finding out the news that we as, makeup consumers, need to know about.

  • Jackie, who we all love because she features brands that have products for all women of color, including immigrant women with warm skin tones was banned from receiving PR from Tarte Cosmetics.
  • Karinna Kaboom, a makeup news youtuber, who I feel gives unbiased, great content on the world of makeup…she completed another vlog about the state of Tarte pulling Jackie Aina from their PR, Jeffree Star, and Tati and Daddy of Five abuse scandal.

Fashion Dolls, 

No one does Carnival like New Orleans! That said, the season has began for Krewes in our beloved city of New Orleans!

Last Night in New Orleans


You may or may not know that we are based in New Orleans, which gives us a unique view into the wonderful life of Carnival Season (Mardi Gras). Last night we began early with one of my Carnival Krewes, Krewe of Athena ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’š. Our mascot is the Owl and our colors are Lavender & Lime. Last night was the presentation and selection of 2016-2017’s Mardi Gras Queen for the Krewe of Athena. 

We had a blast, more importantly, my makeup was sweet! I have listed the makeup items used for last night look. Oh! Yes! My hair was definitely on point, thanks to my Hair Goddess Trishell Veals of First Ladies Salon in Chalmette, Louisiana๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’

Another Eyeshadow application I love

Dolls, I have been on a makeup application break while my face heals from my acne breakout. I have some Murad acne concealer I just purchased and will try. In the meantime, please lust at this shadow application from instagram.  



Ps…another pic of me with the acne concealer  


Product Review: Dior Prestige Eye Cream.ย 

Good Morning Dolls, 

This product: Dior Prestige Eye Cream is everything it says it is. The Sales Associate at Saks in Canal Place in New Orleans, gave me a sample (after I spent $$$$) with the rolling ball for the eyes and it’s exquisite. I will definitely be back for the larger size when I finish my smaller one.
