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 🤔


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.

Green but Not With Envy

The 2018 prom season is approaching and I am starting my promo pictures and videos (yes there is a video on my public Facebook page just look up CreatingCanvasesMakeup and it’s the second picture).
