Fall/Halloween inspired makeup

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, so why not do some Halloween inspired Looks? Since fall is one of my favorite seasons why not make it wearable?

For this look I used all my usuals except I went a discontinued Covergirl foundation that was a whipped (when whipped Foundation was the rage). This foundation is ok the coverage is medium to full and it glided on effortlessly. What I didn’t like? The foundation moved, I had to stipple it in and stipple my contour and highlight, but I made it work. For the lips I used Wet n Wild “Cherry Bomb” matte lipstick. The lashes are from EBay.

Book Ya Beat: Blue Smoke

I love my passion and I love to be booked ( I mean who don’t?)

Friday before work I was able to makeover my client (and cousin) for a comedy show in New Orleans ( you guys probably remember her from my lashes post)

For products I used my usual except I used Black Radiance Cosmetics foundation in “Cocoa Bean”. The eyeshadow was from an EBay palette lashes are LA Colors, and for the lips I used Wet n Wild “ Cherry Bomb and Bare it All” mixed and everything was set with Elf setting spray. To get that glow I used a liquid like Illuminator by Peter Lamas and a gold highlight with 24k eyeshadow both by Nicks K

This was her second time wearing makeup and wearing this deep of a jewel tones.

’90s Inspired Glam

My daughter’s school is doing a theme week and tomorrow she chose to do the “90s”. Since I won’t be awoke to Glam her over, we decided to do a makeup look that was the trend or style as we use to say.
