I didn’t want to create two blog posts, yes, I’m being lazy so I wanted to share some client work I’ve done this month so far, the first is a neutral look for family photos and the second was for a gender reveal. All products were tagged on my Instagram which is CreatingCanvasesMakeup why aren’t you following 🤔
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))
Nyx lip lingerie liquid lipstick and gloss in Miami babe
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.
Too Faced Shadow insurance
La Girl pro concealer “natural”
Set with Bombshell Cosmetics translucent powder

Yass beauties, I’m back with another prom inspired makeup look. Why wasn’t I a makeup artist during my prom time??? Confession: I never made it to my prom, life, teen parent, etc, but if I was a makeup artist or if they were more open to dress codes or what I would definitely be the one to remember!
This look was inspired by 🐝 bees and honey 🍯, I don’t know why, but the vision came and I was like why not? I never done a white eyeshadow let alone pair up white and black eyeshadows, so I was why not, and I decided to add yellow since I was in the yellow mood.
The products used were the same from previous posts, except for my brows I decided to upgrade and try the Benefit Cosmetics “KaBrow” pencil (thoughts later), and I used a limited edition Wet n Wild Beauty palette. The rest were my usuals, but I’m about to upgrade and rotate out.
My skin has been very dry lately and I’m an oily/combination gal, so my Maybelline Superstay Foundation wasn’t a good choice, but it didn’t irritate and I needed a full coverage foundation since this is a prom inspired look.
I used a Nyx lip lingerie liquid lipstick, the yellow with the black liner turned out to be a big no for me. The highlight was Fenty Beauty ” Trophy Wife”.
The Look was almost ditched, because of my contour.. it was too dark, but like a true makeup artist I hacked it, cleaned it up and it was all good in the hood!
I will be doing a tutorial on this look soon, follow me on Snapchat where it goes down first!
Today, I had my first client in February and the second for the new year ( the down side of freelancing). She’s a first time client and she requested a neutral look with a pop of color. I used the same products as my previous post for the brows, and the face, but for the eyes, I rotated between my Morphe palette and my Nicka K Cosmetics “Saharan Sand” palette. When it came to her lips, she stated she hated lipstick and requested a clear gloss, so I used a concealer to mute her lips and make a skintone nude and added a clear lipgloss from LA Colors Cosmetics.
That’s it, something simple, but beautiful and a chance to always do what I love.

Hey Beauties!!! If you have been following me for some time (thank you for hanging with me) then you know I’m from Louisiana and in February it’s carnival time or for us Mardi Gras. I am not a Mardi Gras fan , I personally think it’s overrated, noises, and an excuse for people to be legally publicly intoxicated, but this year I made a promise to myself that I will enjoy the holidays and festivities lol. I had to work Mardi Gras day, so since because I knew we were working short, I did my Mardi Gras Inspired look early and if you are friends with me or follow my public Facebook makeup page then you’ve seen the tutorial on this look.
If you are wondering about the different looks , it’s bc I actually recreated this look three times!!! My daughter messed up the video and I ended up recreating this look on Snapchat ( teeslaysfaces) which if you follow me there you will see more tutorials.
The product breakdown is the same as the previous posts except for the top pictures, I used SmashBox Cosmetics B.B. water foundation in medium, this foundation at first I felt was too dark for me, but upon using it again, I am loving it, very lightweight and soft Dewey, but it’s transferable. On my lips is Mac Cosmetics “Heroine” lipstick. I used a limited edition Wet n Wild palette and a Sugarpill Cosmetics palette and my Myo Cosmetics neon stack . The glitters are from Walmart and Hobby Lobby.
