French Quarter Fest 2017

Hello beauties I just wanted to share my fotd which is a simple natural everyday Face for me unless I am feeling glam lol. Sunday, we attended the French Quarter festival in New Orleans for the first time. This year I refuse to remain in the house letting life pass me by. 

For my Foundation I chose Fashion Fair Cosmetics Foundation stick in “Honey”.  This stick provides medium buildable coverage. First of course I prepped my skin. I used my witch hazel and thyme leaves toner then moisturized with Mary Kay Time Wise moisturizer for oily/combination skin. I then primed using the Hard Candy primer for oily skin and Maybelline blur primer in my tzone. I set my tzone with Elf Cosmetics translucent power in invisible. For my eyes I used Too Faced Cosmetics primer and La colors concealer palette in medium, I took the lightest color and based my eyes and set that with the Elf Cosmetics translucent powder to prevent creasing. I then used Elf Cosmetics press powder in “Toffee” in my crease as a transition color after I based my entire eyelids with an Elf press powder. I then used my Too Faced “Sweet Peach” palette to add the pops of color in my crease as well as under my eyelid and in my eye corner. For my brow bone highlight I used my Elf press powder. I contoured with my la color contour duo and highlighted with the same la color concealer palette and set my highlight with my ruby kisses banana powder. I also highlighted with my Wet n Wild limited edition highlighter (which is a dupe for a Mac limited edition highlighter that I will discuss in my next post real soon). I also used my Becca Cosmetics moonstone on the tip and bridge of my nose as well as forehead. I cream contoured as well with a rue 21 contour kit and set it with the la color contour duo. My lips I outlined with a wet n Wild brow pencil in black/brown blended it out and wore wet n Wild nudist Peach. I set with my Elf primer must and Mac finishing spray. My blush was by black radiance and I did my brows with a Anastasia Beverly Hills dip brow in chocolate. I also color corrected with la girl color correction in orange. My lashes was by Salon Perfect #614 and I primed my lashes with wet n Wild lash primer and mascara was also by Wet n Wild. That’s it until the next post byyyyyeeee!!💋

Happy St. Patrick’s Day 

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!! I hadn’t participated in the green look in ages so I decided why not for 2017?? I broke out my Wet n Wild Cosmetics trio palette in “I Dream of Greenie” ( sorry it has been discontinued) and I used the “I Heart Matte” palette from the brand as well (sorry that is no longer available as well). I chose to use my NARS Foundation with my Wet n Wild Photo finish press power on top. I did not want a really bright highlight so I chose to use my Ulta Beauty Banana powder as my highlight. I contoured with my La Colors Cosmetics highlight and contour duo. On my lips I used Mac Cosmetics “Strip Poker” (limited edition) with La Colors matte liquid lipstick in “Suede” in the middle. For my blush I used my Tarte Cosmetics deluxe sample blush I received in my birthday box from Sephora and for my highlight I chose a cream based highlight from H&M and over it I put Wet n Wild beauty “Precious Metals” everything was set with the Wet n Wild setting spray that’s it🍀🍀🍀

Glam Makeup vs Natural Makeup

Hey beauties today was a lazy day for me, so I decided to play around in makeup, now that I have organized my makeup table and it’s perfect, Why not play?

I decided to do a half and half Face, to showcase the difference between a full glam and a simple everyday look. I only used one palette my Too Faced Cosmetics “Sweet Peach” palette. The Foundation I chose was my NARS Sheer Glow Foundation. The rest of the products including my liquid lipstick choice is in the previous blog. I will say that out of the new Wet n Wild Cosmetics Catsuit liquid lipsticks “Nudist Peach” is my favorite well first choice I am going to purchase the rose color one and try next. Maybe it could be that I am in a “Peach loving” phase but this is definitely a pretty color and its great for everyday. 

I had fun creating this look especially for my clients that say they want a natural look but lean more towards glam.

My FoTd: Spring Fever

Hey guys happy Monday!! This morning I went back to my local Mac Cosmetics store to put in an application to try to get on again ((for the 100th plus time) as a freelancer only to get the runaround again for the 100th plus time, my daughters feel it’s time for me to give up and continue just doing my own thing and I have to agree yes it’s time to give up lol

Well for my “interview” look I decided to do a spring look (honestly I had no idea what I was going to do this came out of the blue). Spring is almost here ( well in Louisiana we don’t know we might just go straight into summer🤷🏽‍♀️) 

Well here’s the details. My skin is still acting crazy hopefully this week it will return to oily/combo. For Foundation I pulled out the old Mac Studio Finish Foundation. I primed with the Maybelline blur primer in my tzone and I moisturizer with Dermologica matte lotion. I put translucent powder in my tzone but will not on my nose the Foundation did not stick. For my eyes I primed with La colors concealer in “natural” and set it. I rotated between the Mac neutral palette and the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette. My brows was the Anastasia Beverly Hills dip brow in “chocolate” and the Wet n Wild beauty brow palette. I also used the Wet n Wild liner for my waterline and the NYC liquid eye liner. I contoured with the rue 21 cream contour palette and set with the LA Colors contour duo. I used the Wet n Wild Photo finish press powder to set my Face. I highlighted in my tzone with the LA Girls concealer in yellow and set it with the NYX banana press powder. For blush I used an old Ulta Beauty blush and highlighter duo and to highlight I used Wet n Wild highlight in “Precious Petals” for my lips I used Wet n Wild Catsuit liquid lipstick in “Nudist Peach”. Everything was set with Mac Fix plus and Wet n Wild setting sprays. My lashes is Salon Perfect #614 and I used a Wet n Wild mascara. That’s it guys talk to you later byeeee!!

My Face of the Day

If you follow me on any of my social media pages then you know yesterday I celebrated the soon to be arrival of my first grandchild a girl ((yes I was a teen mom lol) 

It was beautiful I even lived it on instagram.

The look I chose to wear to celebrate the occasion was a simple with a pop of color. My Face is going through a hormonal stage and plus I am trying to lose weight so my skin isn’t acting right and Louisiana bipolar weather isn’t helping the situation either.

The Foundation of choice was my L’Oréal Pro Infalliable Foundation. The pro matte version, this is a dupe of Mac’s Studio Foundation. I just love the formula and the coverage. I also used my Too Faced Sweet Peach palette ( my first impression  Will be on the next blog)

For my lips I chose to outline my lips with a Milani red lip liner and wear Tarte liquid lipstick in “Birthday Suit”( I received a Tarte mini deluxe sample with a blush for my birthday from Sephora). I also used my LA Colors contour and highlight duo (the first impression will be on another blog). The lashes that I wore are by Salon Perfect in #614 my favs!!
