Primary Colors

Tonight’s makeup look was inspired by the primary colors. As a makeup artist or anyone in the beauty, fashion, and art profession knows that the primary colors are the start to making other colors. I decided to try something new, I have never mismatched my eye colors before so this was definitely fun. I’m also trying out a new foundation, contour, and highlight routine as well. I don’t know how to feel about this yet, but anything to save time and cut my full Glam face to 45 minutes per person.

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👄

Crazy Eyeliner

Hi Beauties today is day # 4 of the “June Makeup Challenge” today’s challenge was “Crazy Eyeliner”. I didn’t go all out but I thought,why not wear a neon color and just brighten up a rainy day? Lol. Nothing too much changed about my beauty routine,well,beauty products. I did use my Nyx Cosmetics highlight and contour cream palette and my Fashion Fair Cosmetics True mineral Foundation in “Sexy Sand” . The eyeliner comes from an Amazon pigment stack that I love!!!

This is my FOTD today for June 1st,clearly what is summer here in Louisiana!! Today I decided to rock my ombre blue wig,which I received a lot of compliments on and has become my signature color!!! Below is a list of products used:
Foundation:
I’m trying the new Maybelline BB Bronze Cream. I will upload a picture and a full review in a few weeks. I will give my  first impression now,you can also watch my video I will upload on my YouTube page. My first impression is that its similar to the regular BB cream with subtle hit of shimmer. Its not full coverage and I had layered three times. If you are like me you will have to conceal dark spots before you apply,but it is natural and you will look bronzed!!!
I plan to make my own which I will upload a video and do a side by side demonstration. But for under $10.00 its a good buy.
Eyes:
💋 Rue 21 Palette; I wanted a bronze look so I used the bronze color in the crease; gold in the outer V, the matte cream color on the lid,and my Fawn press powder as a highlight.
💋 gold eyeliner on lid as well as on the waterline with a bronze pink on lower lash line smoked out.
💋 I primed my lid with Mac Soft Ochre
Other:
💋 I contoured with Mac Blunt blush
💋 my coral blush comes from my Wet n Wild palette
💋 I primed my face with Cherimoya conceal primer
💋 For my lips I used Makeup Forever lipstick in #16
💋 I highlighted with my Ulta highlight/contour palette and Mac soft n gentle
💋 I used my Wet n Wild mascara
I will be uploading on my next blog my favorites at the moment and what I will be using to achieve my bronze glow

Rock it for less

Rock it for less. Beyonce was photographed rocking a sequinned Guns n Roses tee, distressed jeans, and red heels. I decided to recreate the look and add a funky lip purse, (I have a nude one) for much less, so those like myself can afford to wear a celeb inspired look. For shopping info head over to my polyvore page (check previous post)

Guns n Roses. Keeping with the theme I decided to show another way to wear cute concert shirts. I paired a guns and roses tank with some shorts a ysl bag that’s great for shopping or a quick lunch and some zanotti high sandals. Perfect for a shopping trip or quick lunch.
