Fall Inspired #MOTD | Modern Renaissance Palette

Hey Swickass community! I don’t even want to THINK about the last time I posted on this blog (because it has been a hot second). Since the last time I’ve posted, I’ve gotten several steps closer to obtaining my degree, signed the lease to my first apartment and accepted my first full time gig (#adulting). I wouldn’t quite call this a comeback, but I do plan to post regularly on Swickass to report on the latest beauty trends and makeup tutorials.

The gradual decline in temperature is an indicator that Fall is basically here. I decided to create my own fun Autumn look using the Anastasia Beverly Hills – Modern Renaissance Palette.

The song playing in my tutorial is by a good friend of mine, and upcoming St. Louis rapper, Jeremy Raymond. Listen to the full song here.

Whoa Dere Iggy


Late post from Friday, but our second segment of Whoa Dere has to go to Iggy Azalea. If you aren’t familiar with Iggy you should definitely get in tuned. Iggy Azalea is a Australian rapper/model, that’s signed to Island Def Jam, and also has a deal with T.I. label Grand Hustle. Iggy was the first female, and first non American rapper to be featured on XXL annual top 10 Freshman cover issue. But besides her rapping skills, Iggy Azalea is a true beauty, and may I add that I love her Australian accent. At her shows she’s known for dancing and sending all her fans in a rage due to her phenomenal body. I can’t blame those fans either. Iggy body is on point, and any man that has a chance to date her should consider themselves lucky (A$AP Rocky I’m talking to you).  I hope I put Iggy on a bigger platform so everyone can appreciate her music, and her beauty because she’s a rising star! If she doesn’t make you go WHOA DERE I’m not sure what will! http://www.worldstarhiphop.com/videos/video.php?v=wshh0fm5kLjY7cg7cACy
