I am one lucky SugarCookie to be friends with the gorgeous and talented beauty expert LDiva and thoroughly enjoy providing her with my photography whenever possible.



She hosts the blog Divalicious; chock full of beauty tips (and not the same old tired ones) and product recommendations of only her tried and truly-tested best. 



There is also plenty of fashion talk – 10 Commandments of Leggings  is her most hit-up story for us perplexed females and her observations on city girls strutting their stuff (sometimes unwisely) are no-apologies accurate:  it’s tough love from your spot-on beauty sister – not bitchy, just real. 



LDiva is now providing house-call beauty makeovers; helping women to toss, retain and rethink their own cosmetics while introducing updated tips and tricks for making the most of the products and their looks. 



We recently teamed up to makeover and photograph the lovely LK, a pretty girl with lots of personal style.  If I saw her on the street I would think this girl didn’t need to learn a darn thing about looking good. 



However, LDiva was able to teach her a completely new approach to her eyeshadow technique with outstanding results!  LK went from pretty to pretty spectacular!   Here you see 2 different looks, LK chose the neutral look.



And because I need to play too…here’s a glamour shot of Miss LK with her finished look…in much sexier lighting!


Ahhh…this is fun.  My path through life has taken me down some very interesting roads – amazing experiences, profound teachings, loving relationships and…as the case with me and LDiva…beautiful friendships.


PS – all photos are property of SCB.  But that doesn’t mean that I won’t share…please ask first.  🙂

    Hi! I just read up on LDiva’s eye makeup tips for Asians and I totally agree (I’m Asian) with her technique to follow the natural curves of the eyeball and brow bone. I like to use a fluffy angled crease brush (mine is from Sephora) and brush a shadowy brown into my crease to create more drama. I keep it light for the day but darken for a night out on the town. I play with colors more in my liner than anything else (shadows I tend to stick with neutrals) and I like using MAC (powdered) eyeshadow pigments with a wet thin angled brush to apply. Since I also wear contacts (and under the recommendation of my opthalmologist who said I need to stay away from shimmery powders in the eye area), I have recently gotten into a slightly shimmery creme eyeshadow as a base over just the eyeball portion of my lid before I do the crease color.

    That said, I would love to have LDiva do a smoky eye on me sometime just for something new! I tend to go for the same look (ethnic meets corporate America) which is a light and modified version of the cat-eye (I know this is the rage for the fall, but I’m already tired of it!)

    Thanks for your post- enjoyed it!

      That would be SO awesome! 🙂

  1. Wow, this looks like so much fun. I could use a good makeup makeover –been using the same products for too long.

    Thanks for stopping by the Cellulite Investigation. I asked Robin your question about the derma roller and she said it hurts more on her legs than on her face. Strange, isn’t it? I’ll write up a post with her initial impressions and run it by the end of the week. Thanks for your question!
