$1.00 for this eye look

Today on my off day I decided to do what any makeup artist do when they want to relax…play in makeup!

I decided to create this neutral look using one palette only and it only cost me $1.00!!

The palette is by La Colors in “Nude”. The shadows are pigmented and very easy to blend. This palette is perfect for beginners that’s experimenting in makeup to artists whom is looking for a very affordable buy quality palette for $1 you cannot Beat this! You can create tons of Looks from a neutral everyday look to a sexy date night. The palette is completely matte, for the matte lovers this is for you!

The foundation I used is a discontinued Covergirl foundation, which was too sheer for me. On my lips I used a medium brown eyeshadow from the palette and a Nicks K butter liquid lipstick for the center for a kind of ombré look.

See, you don’t have to spend a ton to look good.

Spellbounding with Ipsy

I received my Ipsy bag very late, someone stole my first bag and I found out when I logged into the Ipsy app and seen my package was supposedly delivered October 13th!! Now I can’t say for sure but this was the second package that went m.i.a on me, so I will be investing in a P.O. box enough is enough! Long story short I wrote ispy and all is well!

October’s Ipsy theme was “ Spellbound”, due to the incident I wasn’t able to get the lace bag that came with it I’m just grateful that I received a bag.

The items I received were;

It Cosmetics “ Bye Bye Pores” invisible powder mink sample

Tony and Moly mini Hand Cream

Essence Cosmetics blush

Furless Small crease brush

Jm Solution foaming facial wash ( I tried tonight, so far so good details will be on my updated facial care routine soon)

A pink fur bag and of course the theme card

If you are interested in Ipsy and would like to subscribe please refer to my previous posts thanks.

I rate the bag an A+ I love the great customer service, and all the products were worth it and will be put to great use.

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.
