The Crayon Case Fest

Hey Beauties!!! It’s no stranger, it is me, lol, I know I’ve been m.i.a. And with good reason, I’ve been working a lot more, dreams has to be funded and reality is real, lol, but while I was away, I’ve been getting new makeup and skincare goodies and I can’t wait to share them with you.

Starting now,

On June 2nd, I had the opportunity to travel to New Orleans to attend The Crayon Case one year anniversary pop up shop. I live an hour and half away from New Orleans, so it’s not like I traveled far, lol.

If you’re not familiar with the brand The Crayon Case, here’s a little information for you. The Crayon Case is a woman owned, black owned makeup cosmetics brand, that was started by New Orleans native and Instagram celebrity, Supa Cent. Her brand is dedicated to amateur and pro makeup artists and makeup lovers. The cosmetic brand centers around a school theme as per makeup is an always continuing learning art.

I was excited to attend, because I wanted her always sold out palette “Box of Crayons” , which is a colorful palette, named after crayons, you would find in a crayon box, I already owned her ibrow pomade and concealer palette in number two.

The event was held at a pop up location in downtown New Orleans and the event was packed like a concert, she had vendors or small business owners there as well as food and drinks, but the line was wrapped around waiting to get our hands on her items!

After a few hours, it started raining and the line was extremely long so I left with my family to go browse in stores and let the crowd or line die down and one hour later I had my hand on the famous palette!

The trip was definitely worth it, though I did not meet the CEO Supa herself, I was just happy to be out to a makeup event and get my hands on “The Box of Crayons” palette.

Sprite

Hi beauties, today’s Look was inspired by the soda sprite. I consider myself an eclectic artist, I love to create conversations and head turning looks, and this look was a head turner today. I wear my makeup boldly and proudly, I simply believe that it’s only makeup it will come off and have fun with playing with color.

The products I used were:

Brows: Benefit brow pencil and cleaned up with the ruby kisses cream contour kit

Eyes: too Faced Shadow insurance primer

Since this was a two color look for the lime side I went in with a discontinued Revlon cream shadow kit and I used my Pinky Rose Cosmetic palette and my limited edition Wet and Wild palette and for the yellow side I based with my kat von d white concealer and I used both top palettes and a nyx yellow single shadow.

Icing white liquid eyeliner and occ Cosmetics white eyeliner pencil

Nicka K lashes which I’m loving at the moment

Face: Fenty Beauty pro filter primer I used Black Radiance banana powder to set my tzone. I color corrected with la Girl pro concealer Peach Corrector. I highlighted and contoured as well as bronzed with Ruby Kisses Cosmetics cream concealer palette in medium/dark and to set I used my Ulta Beauty powder contour palette and to powder bronze or set my bronzer Glamour Doll Cosmetics x Lisa Frank Bronzer. I highlighted with Mac soft n gentle highlighter and I used a Tarte blush my foundation was Ruby Kisses liquid foundation for acne, it is a semi matte foundation so it left me slightly Dewey which was cool because my skin is back dry ((Louisiana bipolar weather))

Lips

Nyx lip lingerie liquid lipstick and gloss in Miami babe

My Lil Pony

Tonight’s makeup look was inspired by my phone case which is my little pony. I must admit this look started off rocky and I almost ditched it. The Rue 21 eyeshadow I bought was very very chalky and my Kat Von D white concealer did not mix well with it, which caused the other shadows to appear patchy.

Since my skin is back oily (( yay)), I was able to use my Maybelline superstay Foundation, here’s the rest of the products used:

Brows: Benefits KaBrow pencil ( I’m not a fan, it tends to “disappear” and I end up reapplying after Foundation, though I’m very careful around my brows) and I concealed with my broadway concealer.

Did I Get Morphed?🤔

I am a procrastinator well not really I just take my dear old time when it comes to certain things. I made a promise to myself that I will no longer hold myself back when it comes to the things I like and it was time to upgrade my kits.

I have bought brushes from Morphe before, but was always curious about the palettes, I have seen rave reviews about them, but I was always a dupe type of girl, so when the 35o2: Second Nature dropped, I was like now or never and a click later my order was made. I am one to save money so I used an affiliate code, which is another story about that for a later date..

I must admit, the reds caught my eyes, as a Makeup Artist, I look for quality and pigmentation and the only palette that I have that has a good red eyeshadow is the “Burning Hearts” palette by Sugar Pill Cosmetics, so when I swatched and finally used the red shadow in the Morphe palette, I was like wow!!!

The shipping was great, I rate it a 100, I received my palette in a decent amount of time, even after I questioned when the orders were shipping and I got a response, my order was already on its way, about to be delivered per fed x which is a plus, because I am over my usps office right now!

The pricing is really great and with the affiliate code, you save some coins and if you make a larger you get free shipping so why gripe?? When you can save!

The color pay off is great, I am in love with the transitions colors in the palette, this palette is not only beautiful, but worth the money, there are 100+ looks to be created and is great for beginners and professionals looking to build or upgrade their kit! The colors are also buildable and they deepen as they set. The shadows lasted 7.5 hours of hard work on my eyes and even after I clocked out, they did not crease on me, so that’s another plus. This palette is the palette to have to end 2017!!!

Oh! I loved how the shadows have names, I taped mine to the inside which is easier for me.

Disclaimer: this is NOT sponsored by Morphe Cosmetics, I paid for the palette with my own money and my opinions are my very own. The top picture is not mine as well, but the selfies those are me😝

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.
