Simple and bold all summer ’17

Hello!! Louisiana tends to get extremely hot so I decided my signature look will be a simple face and a bold lip. Summer is the PERFECT time to go bold. Yesterday I decided to try my sample of the Lancôme Teint Idole foundation I gotten from Dillard’s about a month ago. I am in the market of expanding my foundation line and I want to start buying more “higher end” foundations and since I have heard rave reviews why start with Lancôme?? My first impression is that it’s very comfortable on the face for me a little went along way I just added more where I needed the coverage and that was in my t zone. The Foundation lasted even through the heat and I sweated lol. This is now on my buy list. 

The very bold orange lip I am rocking is “Matte Bright” by Black Radiance Cosmetics. This liquid matte lipstick is very bright, I actually built it up bc I wanted to blind the people, but a little goes a long way for this as well. The lippie can be drying but applying a lip balm, wipe, then apply the lippie you should be fine. This lipstick does has lasting powers so you won’t be reapplying as much. This lippie works great with medium to deep skin tones. Though Black Radiance is catered to Women or Men of color (it is NOT black owned) the liquid lipsticks can work for ALL skin tones! 

If you are not already, please follow me on Snapchat at CreatingCanvasesMakeup there I am giving my opinion on this lippie and I talk about a blinding highlight you won’t believe from…and it cost me only $1.99

Unicorn 🦄 Dreams

So last night I got inspired to create this look. I bought an Anastasia Beverly Hills highlighter kit dupe from Ross Department Store and the colors reminded me of mermaids and unicorns. I pulled out my BH Cosmetics 88 shimmer palette and just went for it. I personally am not a shimmer fan, simply because they are hard to work with and you usually have to use base colors for those colors, but it’s those challenges that makes great perfections. I just used my NYX jumbo pencil in milk and my good ol’ ring finger to pack on the color (you can also wet your brushes, I was being lazy). The Foundation was by Covergirl and the big lashes are #199 ( my fav for drag looks or in my case when I am feeling bold and daring;she was not a fan lol but was a good sport until she saw the end..100 selfies lol). I do intend to remix this look again! Bye👄

Hi beauties I haven’t posted in a few weeks, but as I said before follow me on my social media pages to keep up with me .

Tonight my model,my youngest daughter let me create this look inspired by prom season. I decided to add a pop of color to the traditional smokey eye. Here’s a list of product breakdowns:

I prepped her skin with my witch hazel and thyme leaves mixture, then primed the skin with Mary Kay skin primer

Brows: Ruby Kisses Cosmetics brow pencil (dark brown) and then to clean them up I also used the Ruby Kisses highlight and contour kit for medium to deep skin skin. I set them with the Ulta brow kit

Eyes: I primed with the Too Faced Shadow Insurance and I used a medium brown shadow from the Ruby Kisses Cosmetics Contour kit and the oranges came from the Urban Decay Electric palette and from my eBay neon shadows palette and my Mayo Cosmetics neon pigment. The black came from an eBay neutral palette. I used NYX Cosmetics Black Bean as a base

Contour: Ruby Kisses Cosmetics cream contour kit and was set the Ruby Kisses powder contour kit

Foundation: Maybelline Fit me foundation in “Coconut” I used a brown from the ruby kisses palette to set the foundation

Highlight: the gold cream from the ruby kisses palette and Mac Cosmetics “Soft and Gentle”

Lashes: La colors lashes in the style “Danity”

Mascara: Wet n Wild mascara 

Blush: Black Radiance Cosmetics “Raspberry ”

Lips: Wet n Wild brown liner and an La Color lipgloss 

I set with the Elf Cosmetics setting spray 

Prom Makeup

It’s that time of year and if you are an Independent Makeup Artist like me then you have already begun your promoting. I was blessed to have 3 daughters and tonight my oldest daughter was kind enough to lend her beautiful canvas to start my promoting. The glitter that I used is by Wet n Wild this is from their older Halloween collection, which I look forward to every year. I am looking forward to doing some faces for prom

First Makeover of 2017




Finally!! I can post a makeover photo or photos for 2017!! I gotta confess I was getting discouraged, I haven’t done a client in so long and partially it’s because the town I live in doesn’t demand makeup services often. I’m soon going to change directions..
Tonight my long time client wanted a green look for a party she was attending, she wanted the focus to be her eyes, but did not want any heavy foundation nor lashes..I tried to convince her it was a no lol.
Here’s a list of the products used:
Moisturizer: Simply facial lotion
Primer: Nyc Cosmetics
Base: Mary Kay foundation (i used a color 3xs lighter than her skintone i applied the foundation on her eyes confession: I thought my concealer palette was in my kit and it wasn’t so I improvised)
Powders: Airspun transluscent powder ( set the eyes and i applied this to her t zone after I primed her to keep her from oiling up and to blur her pores..I just gave out a tip..thank me later my oily girls)
La Girls loose powder in “Medium” to set the foundation
Foundation: Fashion Fair Cosmetics Tru Mineral Foundation in ” Tenacious Topez”
Contour/highlight: Profusion contour and highlight palette and a sally’s girl highlight that is discontinued
bronzer: Covergirl Queen bronzer in “Ebony Bronze” my favorite! Especially for my brownies and my deep goddesses
Eye shadows:
I based her eyes with a green cream base from a unnamed palette
I used my eBay palettes the neutrals and my bright one and I also used my Wet n Wild palette for her inner corner of her eyes
For her lips I used my Profusion Cosmetics lip palette which I will be reviewing after I receive a purchase
For her blush I used my eBay palette, I chose a red and pink and mixed it together.
For eyeliner I used a Wet n Wild black eyeliner and that’s it!!
When it comes to makeup I personally don’t have a particular brand I use on clients simply because they all are sister brands of a company..I just use whatever worked on me first. I will be adding more brands to my kit,because my preferences has changed so much and I was able to get a few “higher end” products. I will be doing YouTube again so if you follow me then you will know the release dates of my videos.
Thanks for reading any questions please feel free to comment and I will answer as soon as I can
