My Week In Makeup

Hi beauties, I’m back with my second post of my week in makeup. I haven’t been doing much looks as I am preparing for my Christmas and New Year looks.

#1: Orange Fire:

I actually wore this look after wearing my last two pictures looks that week. I had to bring in bright and bold. I wanted to do a rose gold, red look, but it ended up being a fail. You win some and lose some. The foundation I chose was my Wet n Wild Photo Focus foundation in “Desert Beige” but I feel this particular foundation is too light for me, so I guess I will be mixing foundations. On my lips I wore Mac x Nicki Minaj’s ” Nicki’s Nude”. I chose to use my Morphe 35o2 , Shop Hush Retro, and Sugarpill Cosmetics Burning Hearts palettes.

#2-3 Simple

I wanted to do some quick work makeup looks. I used Fenty Foundation for both looks. The lips were both Maybelline liquid lipsticks from the vault I done on my previous post. These looks took about 30 minutes to do.

My Makeup Week

Hey Beauties I decided to try this new way of posting I decided to upload my makeup looks on my blog as a weekly posting unless it’s a product review I want to share, sometimes my products don’t change.

Here is breakdown on each look:

#1 “Purple Passion” is a halo eye that looks like a monochromatic look right? Nope that is actually red, berry, purple, and rose gold.

I went into my crease with my favorite transition color “Universal” from the Morphe 35o2 palette and to slightly deepen I used the color “Atlanta ” from my Karity Cosmetics palette, I wanted a red, so I dipped back into my Morphe palette and used the color “Fire”, I felt it wasn’t red enough, before that I used a little bit of the color ” Creamy” from my Karity palette, I didn’t want so much pink, I then decided to go with the reds, I felt “Fire” wasn’t deep enough, so I broke out my Sugarpill ” Burning Heart” palette and used the color “Love +”. I wanted to create a halo look so in my inner and outer corners I used my H&M palette and deepen the colors with the berry color. It was time to create the halo look, i used my LA Girl pro concealer in “natural” and for the rose gold I used ” Cobbler” from my Karity palette. The colors “Fire” from Morphe and “Fruity” from Karity on my lower lash line. All face products is the same. I used Anastasia Beverly Hills dip brow pomade on my brows. On my lips is Mac Cosmetics limited edition lipstick ” Leap of Delight” from last year Christmas collection.

#2: “Pre Thanksgiving”

I knew for thanksgiving I was gonna let my face ” breathe” so I decided to do a look the day before. The entire eye look was used using my Morphe palette. The foundation was Mac Cosmetics Studio Fluid Foundation NW 44 and lips was Viva Glam Taraji 2 and brows was a Wet n Wild brown gel eyeliner

#3: Rustic Simplicity”

Again I used my Morphe palette to create this simple look. All face products are the same from previous posts.

That’s all beauties please let me know if you like this idea and which look did you like? Thanks

Orange 🍊Grove

Tgif beauties!!! I was feeling orangey today so I decided to break out my Morphe 35o2 Second Nature palette (( whom else is loving this palette?πŸ™‹πŸ½)) and started playing.

The only products I used differently was a Mua Cosmetics matte primer on my face and I contoured with my Wet n Wild duo and bronzed with my H&M Bronzer. I also used a BH Cosmetics foundation that was too dark for me, but it ended up not being that dark so I had to use my Ruby Kisses Cosmetics cream contour palette. I also used an oldie but goodie today, my Benefits pore professional pore filler. My highlight was different as well, I used my Ruby Kisses highlighter and added Bella Cosmetics rose gold highlight on top to intensify. On my lips is the limited edition Wet n Wild liquid lipstick that was released for Halloween. I will say I love the intensity of the color, but it beaded on me and left a cast after it worn off. I also used their Halloween cream palette as a base for the orange. The creams apply great but it cracks.

This look happened to be a favorite as well.

Modern 80s

Today I had to bring color into my life, I mean I live in color, so why not?

All the face, brows, etc are the same from my previous post. To create the eye look, I used my Bh Cosmetics “Take Me to Brazil” palette ( the first edition), Morphe 35o2 palette (my transition color only), and the La Girl $1 quad ( on the lower lid). My lips is all Mac Cosmetics ” Kelly Yum Yum” Lipstick ( limited edition), Candy Yum Yum lip liner and lipgloss. The lashes are Mink lashes. That’s it, I hope you like! Til next time.. Slay your way ✌🏼

Simple Dimple

I decided to do one for my natural gals. The ones that always ask me what a natural look like. In all honesty, there is no such thing as natural when it comes to makeup, only neutral or minimal.

The product breakdown:

Brows:

Elf Cosmetics brow pencil ( you DO NOT get a lot of product not worth the buy because of that)

Ruby Kisses Cosmetics cream contour palette

Eyes:

Too Faced Shadow insurance primer

La Girls Pro Concealer ” Natural” set with It Cosmetics “Bye Bye Pores” powder (my current fav)

Morphe 35o2 Second Nature palette: I used the colors ” Universal ” and “Flux” only for bottom lids

La Colors liquid brown liner

La Girls Cosmetics dark brown liner for bottom waterline

Wet n Wild lash primer

eBay lashes applied with Kiss Cosmetics lash glue

Ulta volume mascara for top and bottom lashes

Face:

Mary Kay foundation primer

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores powder in the tzone only

Fenty Beauty Foundation in #300

Wet n Wild highlight and contour duo (I used the banana shade only)

Elf press powder (the darkest shade) to contour

Wet n Wild Photo Focus press powder

Becca Cosmetics highlight “opal”

Coral blush

Set with Elf matte setting spray

Lips:

Jordana liquid lipstick “Tiramisu”

Mac limited edition lipgloss

This would be a lazy look for me, but great for clients new to makeup or for teens going to school.

Sweater Weather

Hi beauties! I bought a palette from H&M Sunday and I couldn’t wait to play! The dark berry and forest green drew me in. I will say that the pigmentation is great for an under $10 buy! The berry is more of a berry brown which was still good for me. You can create numerous looks and it’s great for a date night look. I think I will be playing with this palette this week to create looks.

Everything I used is in previous posts. I decided to break out my Nars Sheer Glow Foundation. I haven’t used it in a long time and it held up nicely. The lipstick is from Mac Cosmetics, it’s a part of the velvet matte collection, that is limited edition. It’s called ” Valiant”. It duped another Mac limited edition lipstick by nasty Gal x Mac, but if you want a permanent lipstick definitely get “Cyber”

I will be doing my first Christmas Makeup Gift Guide this year on my picks for a makeup lover for Christmas.. stay tuned!
