Client Glam: Neutral Beauty

Today, I had my first client in February and the second for the new year ( the down side of freelancing). She’s a first time client and she requested a neutral look with a pop of color. I used the same products as my previous post for the brows, and the face, but for the eyes, I rotated between my Morphe palette and my Nicka K Cosmetics “Saharan Sand” palette. When it came to her lips, she stated she hated lipstick and requested a clear gloss, so I used a concealer to mute her lips and make a skintone nude and added a clear lipgloss from LA Colors Cosmetics.

That’s it, something simple, but beautiful and a chance to always do what I love.

Happy Mardi Gras (late post)

Hey Beauties!!! If you have been following me for some time (thank you for hanging with me) then you know I’m from Louisiana and in February it’s carnival time or for us Mardi Gras. I am not a Mardi Gras fan , I personally think it’s overrated, noises, and an excuse for people to be legally publicly intoxicated, but this year I made a promise to myself that I will enjoy the holidays and festivities lol. I had to work Mardi Gras day, so since because I knew we were working short, I did my Mardi Gras Inspired look early and if you are friends with me or follow my public Facebook makeup page then you’ve seen the tutorial on this look.

If you are wondering about the different looks , it’s bc I actually recreated this look three times!!! My daughter messed up the video and I ended up recreating this look on Snapchat ( teeslaysfaces) which if you follow me there you will see more tutorials.

The product breakdown is the same as the previous posts except for the top pictures, I used SmashBox Cosmetics B.B. water foundation in medium, this foundation at first I felt was too dark for me, but upon using it again, I am loving it, very lightweight and soft Dewey, but it’s transferable. On my lips is Mac Cosmetics “Heroine” lipstick. I used a limited edition Wet n Wild palette and a Sugarpill Cosmetics palette and my Myo Cosmetics neon stack . The glitters are from Walmart and Hobby Lobby.

The Looks of Love Vday Series #3: Classic Smoke

I’m really shelling out these Vday looks aren’t I? I am on to look number three, this Look was actually a part of a contest I entered in a group, the inspiration was the late r&b singer Aaliyah from her “We Need A Resolution” music video, this was one of I want to say two looks and since it’s almost Valentine’s Day, why not give him or her something romantic and sexy?

As always here’s the product breakdown. I used everything from the previous posts, but this time for Foundation I chose Fenty Beauty, I’m in the color 300, but since I’m pale and want to be darker in the face ((personal preference)) I am going to purchase color 310 ( not much of a difference, but hey). I did cream contour and I used the Wet n Wild Photo Focus concealer in “Toffee”. I chose Mac Cosmetics Viva Glam Sia for the red lip and topped it off with Mac x Patrick Starr “Patrick Woo” lipgloss. The eyes were Patrick Starrr x Mac eyeshadow quad in “Goal Getter” ( soft brown as a brow highlight/ diffuser and Swiss chocolate as a transition) and the black shadow cave from Fashion Fair Cosmetics “Noir”

I also released a video on my Facebook page and I will upload to YouTube soon.
