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🍀🍀🍀

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

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!! 

New LA Colors Products

LA colors has released some new products for 2017. I found their contouring palette and their bronzer at my local Family Dollar.

The contour palette contains a deep powder to contour. It is matte perfect for oily/combo skin, but the again, you should always contour with a matte powder for a soft natural contour. The highlight is sorta shimmery and is a slight champagne banana color it is very pretty. The price for this is $2 or $3

The bronzer is called “Radiant”. The middle has a pigmented golden sun perfect for medium to deep skin tones. The bronzer is matte but the highlight or sun is shimmer. This also retails for $2 or $3

These are great additions to your professional kit especially if you are starting off your freelancing career. 

Wet n Wild Spring Collection 

The Wet n Wild Spring Collection is finally here. I happened to find them at my local Walgreens (which is having a buy two get one free sale going on).

In the Collection there are two kabuki brushes, two lipstick palettes, two of each highlighters, and two of each eye shadow trios. I picked up the highlighters and one of each eye shadow trios. I passed on the kabuki brush and the lipstick palette, I simply was not interested.

The highlighters are beautiful, each one comes with a silver heart when combined together makes a pretty silverish color. The purple one is called “Lillac to Reality” and the pink is called “The Sweetest Bling”. In my opinion they will compliment every skin tone and they are pigmented.

The eye shadows are a trio. Only one has a matte which will make a great transition color for medium to medium dark skin tones and a great lid color for fair and dark skin tones.from left to right the trios names are:

💄”Will You Marina Me” is a shimmer trio with a beautiful brow bone color that can also double as a highlighter for medium to dark skin tones 

💄 “Heart and Heavy” which is shimmer with hint of reflect glitter

💄”Hieroglyphic Heart” is the only trio that has the matte color which is a good transition color for medium to medium dark skin tones and a great lid color for fair to dark skin tones 

In my opinion this Collection is pretty cool definitely great for Spring. I felt Wet n Wild should’ve released a few pastel color liquid lipsticks maybe two colorful mascaras, pastel blushes and eyeliners,but this Collection gets an A- it’s worth the buy.
