Bold and Bright Summer

Last night I done a video tutorial on this bright and bold, very colorful, and fun makeup look using the Pinky Rose Cosmetics palette named “Bright Lights”. The palette is very pigmented and great for those like myself that love color! I gave an in-depth review on the palette. Please head to my Instagram page and/or YouTube page to check that out. I’m aiming at 250 subbies on youtube, so if you happen to watch the video and you like what you see do me a favor, please? Would you be soo kind to hit the like button and subscribe? It’s free, thank you.

The products I used are as per usual, except for my foundation. I used two. I skipped my usual color correction and aimed at an oldie but goodie, my Mac cosmetics studio fix foundation in NW44, because I wanted full coverage in my trouble areas and I used my foundation I bought from Sally’s beauty supply’s the foundation gave an ok coverage, but the smell smelled like vinegar. I did not get a reaction so that’s good. I also used my Sephora highlighter in “Golden Hour” with the L’Oréal lumi lotion underneath to give a blinding glow. My lips I used all Mac lipsticks and gloss except to outline,I outlined in a wet n wild lipstick pencil. My blush was by black radiance.

I had fun creating this look and I hope you all enjoy the video.

Unicorn Dust🦄

Hey Beauties I’m back with another post. I wanted to share with you this beautiful soft look I created using this beautiful iridescent pink eyeshadow with blue reflects from Sephora called “unicorn dust” and I wanted to try out the sample I got of Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation.

The products I used are the same except for the foundation which I previously mentioned. I am loving the Double Wear foundation and is planning to buy it, it held up in the Louisiana to Mississippi heat, lol.

On my lips I am wearing a lipgloss from the Mac x Patrick Starr spring collection and I’m also wearing the blush as well ( my full review on this collection will be up soon).

I love the eyeshadow, but it could’ve been a bit more pigmented, I found a base that is geared toward high shimmer and reflect shadows so I will try that and give my opinion, I’m upset my camera didn’t capture how pretty shadow actually is.

The Crayon Case Fest

Hey Beauties!!! It’s no stranger, it is me, lol, I know I’ve been m.i.a. And with good reason, I’ve been working a lot more, dreams has to be funded and reality is real, lol, but while I was away, I’ve been getting new makeup and skincare goodies and I can’t wait to share them with you.

Starting now,

On June 2nd, I had the opportunity to travel to New Orleans to attend The Crayon Case one year anniversary pop up shop. I live an hour and half away from New Orleans, so it’s not like I traveled far, lol.

If you’re not familiar with the brand The Crayon Case, here’s a little information for you. The Crayon Case is a woman owned, black owned makeup cosmetics brand, that was started by New Orleans native and Instagram celebrity, Supa Cent. Her brand is dedicated to amateur and pro makeup artists and makeup lovers. The cosmetic brand centers around a school theme as per makeup is an always continuing learning art.

I was excited to attend, because I wanted her always sold out palette “Box of Crayons” , which is a colorful palette, named after crayons, you would find in a crayon box, I already owned her ibrow pomade and concealer palette in number two.

The event was held at a pop up location in downtown New Orleans and the event was packed like a concert, she had vendors or small business owners there as well as food and drinks, but the line was wrapped around waiting to get our hands on her items!

After a few hours, it started raining and the line was extremely long so I left with my family to go browse in stores and let the crowd or line die down and one hour later I had my hand on the famous palette!

The trip was definitely worth it, though I did not meet the CEO Supa herself, I was just happy to be out to a makeup event and get my hands on “The Box of Crayons” palette.

Sprite

Hi beauties, today’s Look was inspired by the soda sprite. I consider myself an eclectic artist, I love to create conversations and head turning looks, and this look was a head turner today. I wear my makeup boldly and proudly, I simply believe that it’s only makeup it will come off and have fun with playing with color.

The products I used were:

Brows: Benefit brow pencil and cleaned up with the ruby kisses cream contour kit

Eyes: too Faced Shadow insurance primer

Since this was a two color look for the lime side I went in with a discontinued Revlon cream shadow kit and I used my Pinky Rose Cosmetic palette and my limited edition Wet and Wild palette and for the yellow side I based with my kat von d white concealer and I used both top palettes and a nyx yellow single shadow.

Icing white liquid eyeliner and occ Cosmetics white eyeliner pencil

Nicka K lashes which I’m loving at the moment

Face: Fenty Beauty pro filter primer I used Black Radiance banana powder to set my tzone. I color corrected with la Girl pro concealer Peach Corrector. I highlighted and contoured as well as bronzed with Ruby Kisses Cosmetics cream concealer palette in medium/dark and to set I used my Ulta Beauty powder contour palette and to powder bronze or set my bronzer Glamour Doll Cosmetics x Lisa Frank Bronzer. I highlighted with Mac soft n gentle highlighter and I used a Tarte blush my foundation was Ruby Kisses liquid foundation for acne, it is a semi matte foundation so it left me slightly Dewey which was cool because my skin is back dry ((Louisiana bipolar weather))

Lips

Nyx lip lingerie liquid lipstick and gloss in Miami babe

My Lil Pony

Tonight’s makeup look was inspired by my phone case which is my little pony. I must admit this look started off rocky and I almost ditched it. The Rue 21 eyeshadow I bought was very very chalky and my Kat Von D white concealer did not mix well with it, which caused the other shadows to appear patchy.

Since my skin is back oily (( yay)), I was able to use my Maybelline superstay Foundation, here’s the rest of the products used:

Brows: Benefits KaBrow pencil ( I’m not a fan, it tends to “disappear” and I end up reapplying after Foundation, though I’m very careful around my brows) and I concealed with my broadway concealer.

Eyes:

Too Faced Shadow insurance

La Girl pro concealer “natural”

Set with Bombshell Cosmetics translucent powder

Rue 21 eyeshadow palette (which again ended up being a disaster)

Pinky Rose Cosmetics “Bright Lights” palette

Wet n Wild limited edition palette

Bh Cosmetics pink palette

Icing whiting liquid eyeliner

Mink lashes

Beauty supply store white eyeliner

Pinky Rose palette on lower lid

Face:

Fenty Beauty primer

Maybelline super stay Foundation

Broadway concealer palette

Ulta Beauty powder contour palette

Black Radiance creamy concealer palette

Black Radiance banana powder

Covergirl Queen press powder

Lips:

Wet n Wild liquid lipstick “Nudist Peach ” which seemed to be very very blotchy tonight with my star Cosmetics lip liner

🍯 Honeybees 🍯

Yass beauties, I’m back with another prom inspired makeup look. Why wasn’t I a makeup artist during my prom time??? Confession: I never made it to my prom, life, teen parent, etc, but if I was a makeup artist or if they were more open to dress codes or what I would definitely be the one to remember!

This look was inspired by 🐝 bees and honey 🍯, I don’t know why, but the vision came and I was like why not? I never done a white eyeshadow let alone pair up white and black eyeshadows, so I was why not, and I decided to add yellow since I was in the yellow mood.

The products used were the same from previous posts, except for my brows I decided to upgrade and try the Benefit Cosmetics “KaBrow” pencil (thoughts later), and I used a limited edition Wet n Wild Beauty palette. The rest were my usuals, but I’m about to upgrade and rotate out.

My skin has been very dry lately and I’m an oily/combination gal, so my Maybelline Superstay Foundation wasn’t a good choice, but it didn’t irritate and I needed a full coverage foundation since this is a prom inspired look.

I used a Nyx lip lingerie liquid lipstick, the yellow with the black liner turned out to be a big no for me. The highlight was Fenty Beauty ” Trophy Wife”.

The Look was almost ditched, because of my contour.. it was too dark, but like a true makeup artist I hacked it, cleaned it up and it was all good in the hood!

I will be doing a tutorial on this look soon, follow me on Snapchat where it goes down first!

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.
