Client Tales

I didn’t want to create two blog posts, yes, I’m being lazy so I wanted to share some client work I’ve done this month so far, the first is a neutral look for family photos and the second was for a gender reveal. All products were tagged on my Instagram which is CreatingCanvasesMakeup why aren’t you following 🤔


Mattemoiselle with Fenty

Last week our favorite island beauty Rihanna aka badgalriri broke the Instagram with a picture of her flexing in royalty, the color purple as Pantone released the color of year! Many speculated that RiRi was dropping a new fur coat, but most caught the hint of the teaser that a new lipstick was in the works.

If you guessed lipstick, you were absolutely correct, Rihanna is dropping a new lipstick, but not one… she’s dropping 14!! Yes, badgalriri is dropping 14 brand new matte lipsticks adding to her growing and fast selling Fenty Beauty line! The lipsticks named “Mattemoiselle” range from nude to the daring bolds. The lipsticks will drop on 12/26 in Sephora, in time for the after Christmas exchanges and mad sales. Whose buying from the launch and if so what are you buying or shall I ask what shade??

Holiday Gift Ideas

If you have a Makeup Artist or lover or if you are a makeup artist looking to expand your kit, the Christmas season is the perfect time! Beauty companies and Indie Cosmetics owners release bundle deals perfect to give as gifts or add to your kit.

Maybelline has released a mini collection of their vivid matte liquid lipsticks. You will get all 30 colors for $15 at Walgreens while supplies last! That’s half off!

As a makeup artist this is coming just in time my second kit ( I retired my rolling bag) will be half full!!

I’m definitely getting this for myself as well😉

YouTube Beauty Influencer Patrick Starr has collaborated with Mac Cosmetics to release a collection series, starting this month. Mac has teamed with Dillard’s to give Mac lovers early access of the collection by invitation and 20% off from 6:30 to 9:00 pm this Sunday! The release to the public will be December 14th. I’m interested in the powder for sure and the lip products, since the eyeshadows from the palettes are permanent I will collect unless it doesn’t sell out fast

Nicki Minaj’s collection is available as well at 2 for $24.50! I’m here for it as I love “Nicki’s Nude” and ” The Pink Print” so whose about to stock their kits🙋🏽

Simple Glamover

Hey Beauties it’s December!! The final chapter of 2017! Am I the only one that feels this year went by quickly?? I have to be honest this has been a rough year for me, so I’m ready to see some changes like seriously! Hopefully I will finally get noticed as a serious makeup artist.

Anywho, I am kicking off my holiday look ideas in my makeup and style sets. Yes, I am also an aspiring fashion and personal stylist. ( Thestylegosssip)

My beautiful daughter was my model tonight. I decided to a copper gold cut crease Smokey Eye with a nude lip. Here’s the product breakdown:

Too Faced Shadow insurance primer

Mac paint pot “Painterly”

Set with La Girl Cosmetics translucent powder

Hush Cosmetics Retro Love palette (dupe for Anastasia Beverly Hills Sub Culture palette) I used the colors “Pop”, ” Nostalgia” and ” Rock n Roll” in the crease and outer lid and I used “Psychedelic” as a brow bone highlight.

For the lid, I used La Girls pro concealer in “Natural ” to cut the crease. I applied the color “Revolution ” from the Hush palette and to add that gradient effect I went into my Morphe palette and used the color ” Pure” which is a gold foil color. I used the colors ” Noir” and ” Brunette” to deepen the crease.

For the lower lid I used “Revolution” and “Rock n Roll” from my Hush palette

Elf black gel liner and NYC liquid eyeliner for upper lid

Wet n Wild black eyeliner for lower water line

eBay lashes applied with Starry lash glue

Viva Glam Sia

Mac has found a new Viva Glam spokesperson and it’s none other than singer Sia!! I am ready for this lipstick debuting in January 2018 just in time for my birthday!! Now I have to get another Viva Glam Taraji Lipstick and two lip glosses.

If you are not familiar with Mac’s Viva Glam lipstick and glosses, they are apart of the Mac Aids program that helps men, women, and children with aids or hiv get funding for meds, clothing, or shelter. The proceeds from the sales of the Viva Glam Lipsticks and glosses goes straight to the charity! How cool is that?

Each lipstick or gloss is only available for a year and sometimes they will collab twice with the same spokesperson!

Whose buying the Viva Glam Sia? It’s going to be a bright , classic red! Perfect for date night and just in time for Valentine’s Day!
