Beauty Photography: Dayna Bolden

This was such a fun shoot with Influencer Dayna Bolden and of course my favorite painter and MUA Jamaya Moore.  It’s so refreshing when things just happen magically and fast.  For this shoot, I used my Sony 2.8/90 Macro G Lens.  I actually think this will be my go-to for all my beauty shoots.  The G Series lenses are extraordinary.  This lens, in particular, is able to capture some amazing detail and it’s fast!

For the face:

Nars Cosmetics was what we wanted to highlight for these looks as well as.a winged eye.  Jamaya used the Narsissist Radiant Creamy Concealer Chocolat and Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation.

For the eyes:  

Anastasia Beverly Hils Soft Glam Palette

Lashes Ardell Beaty Faux Mink #811

NYX Cosmetics Matte Liquid Liner

Magdelena Brunch in Baltimore

Hey Baltimore, are you free this Sunday?!?!  Having Brunch this Sunday at Magdalena Restaurant at The Ivy Hotel is now your obligation.  I went with the girls and for days it was all we could talk about.  We all plan to revisit and to take a new person to try the place!  From start to finish the Brunch was absolutely amazing!

Magdalena Restaurant at The Ivy Hotel is Maryland’s only Relais & Chateaux property, which recently launched brunch service for the first time ever. Brunch in style after hitting snooze, as Magdalena welcomes brunch-goers on Sundays from 11:00am -1:30pm with a prixe fixe menu that includes three items for the table to share, both hot and cold non-alcoholic beverages (coffee, tea, juice, etc.) along with your choice of a delectable entree (so much amazing food for only $39/person!).

Think glazed Maryland crab omelet with Piquillo peppers and toasted brioche; 70% dark chocolate waffle with marinated strawberries and spiced maple syrup; local goats cheese and caramelized onion quiche, and more!
