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.

Viva Glam Taraji 2

Disclaimer: I do not own the photos
My heart skipped a beat today when I read that my favorite actress has collaborated with Mac Cosmetics to bring a part two to us and expand the Viva Glam family.
If you are not familiar with Mac Cosmetics Viva Glam line, it’s a charity line dedicated to help bring shelter, food, clothing,and medicine to men, women, and children affected with the H.I.V and/or Aids virus. 100% of the proceeds goes to the Mac AIDS fund.
The collection will feature a sexy copper lipstick and a beautiful goldish bronze lip glass perfect for medium to deep skin tones.
The lipstick and lip glass will hit stores in the U.S September 7th!!! Will you be adding them to your collection??
Ps. Keep in mind like all Viva Glam lipsticks and lip glasses they are limited edition, When Mac partners to bring a new Viva Glam lipstick and lip glass the older ones become discontinued so if you loved Taraji’s first Viva Glam collaboration stick up before it’s gone forever!!!

Pat McGrath Loves Us

DDisclaimer: these are not my photos
If you are a Makeup Artist, aspiring makeup artist, or just a plain makeup junkie, then the name Pat McGrath is etched in your brain!!! She is a legend among the beauty world with her killer makeup skills to her avant garden makeup looks on the runway.
She decided to shake up the beauty world by adding cosmetic owner to her very long list of credentials by releasing "Pat McGrath Beauty" all of her lipsticks, liners,and what not has always been limited edition and if you were late to order, well, you missed out.
Recently, Ms. McGrath has decided that she loves her fans and budding artists so much that she decided to make her 61 piece collection PERMANENT!!! You read right, if you love Pat's brand (who doesn't duh!!) then you will be able to forever enjoy it. FYI: this collection is for those whom love couture/ high end makeup, not those whom choose to stay in a budget. The prices start at $25-$125 and will feature three shadows palettes, eyeliners, and lipsticks along with lip liners. The collection will be available at midnight September 16 on pathmcgrath.com and exclusively to Sephora on October 6. Will you be buying anything from this unlimited edition collection? If so what?

Black Girl Magic with Black Radiance

Disclaimer: Photos are not mine
Fall must the season for jewel tones! Cosmetic lines are debuting jewel tones to welcome in everyone's favorite season.
Black Radiance Cosmetics has decided to join in on the fun by debuting four limited edition jewel tones liquid lipsticks, expanding their "Perfect Tone" matte lip creme line (in my opinion is the BEST drugstore liquid lipsticks besides NYX cosmetics now).
The liquid lipsticks again are limited edition and is out now. They are definitely perfect for dark to deep dark skintones. Their lip cremes are very pigmented and long lasting. The only con I have with them is that they can be very drying on the lip so I do suggest moisturizing your lips. The lip cremes are stay proof. My favorite colors are "Matte Bright" and the purple one! They just make your lips pop!
I can not wait to try these on myself and on my clients!!! Which ones are you getting? Are you getting the entire collection? What do you think about the Black Radiance lip cremes? Leave your thoughts in the comment section below.

Muva Fuka x Reebok

Reebok has been a classic staple to anyone that was a teenager and loved hip hop. If you are like me being a teenager in the '90s then your back to school outfit consisted of a pair of "Rees" as we called them here in Louisiana. Reebok has been known to collab with many influencers in style to hip hop from Melanie Ehsani to Kendrick Lamar, so this collab is by far going to take the fall 2017 season by a storm.
If you are on Instagram, this morning you saw pictures of these kicks circulating around on pages such as Baller Alert no if you follow Amber Rose then you got a tease late Saturday night.
That's right! Amber Rose posted pictures of her collaboration with Reebok! The high top sneakers are the perfect fall color burgundy and pony hair. They have gold with diamond metal tips on the laces. The words "Muva Fucka" on the laces in gold and diamonds as well. The date hasn't been set yet, but I'm dying to find out when! If you follow me on Instagram at "Thestylegosssip" I will upload another picture with the date!!! Are you feeling the Reebok and Amber Rose collab? Let me know in the comments below
