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👄

Smokey Eye with a Hint of Orange 

Hi beauties I haven’t posted in a few weeks, but as I said before follow me on my social media pages to keep up with me .

Tonight my model,my youngest daughter let me create this look inspired by prom season. I decided to add a pop of color to the traditional smokey eye. Here’s a list of product breakdowns:

I prepped her skin with my witch hazel and thyme leaves mixture, then primed the skin with Mary Kay skin primer

Brows: Ruby Kisses Cosmetics brow pencil (dark brown) and then to clean them up I also used the Ruby Kisses highlight and contour kit for medium to deep skin skin. I set them with the Ulta brow kit

Eyes: I primed with the Too Faced Shadow Insurance and I used a medium brown shadow from the Ruby Kisses Cosmetics Contour kit and the oranges came from the Urban Decay Electric palette and from my eBay neon shadows palette and my Mayo Cosmetics neon pigment. The black came from an eBay neutral palette. I used NYX Cosmetics Black Bean as a base

Contour: Ruby Kisses Cosmetics cream contour kit and was set the Ruby Kisses powder contour kit

Foundation: Maybelline Fit me foundation in “Coconut” I used a brown from the ruby kisses palette to set the foundation

Highlight: the gold cream from the ruby kisses palette and Mac Cosmetics “Soft and Gentle”

Lashes: La colors lashes in the style “Danity”

Mascara: Wet n Wild mascara 

Blush: Black Radiance Cosmetics “Raspberry ”

Lips: Wet n Wild brown liner and an La Color lipgloss 

I set with the Elf Cosmetics setting spray 

French Quarter Fest 2017

Hello beauties I just wanted to share my fotd which is a simple natural everyday Face for me unless I am feeling glam lol. Sunday, we attended the French Quarter festival in New Orleans for the first time. This year I refuse to remain in the house letting life pass me by. 

For my Foundation I chose Fashion Fair Cosmetics Foundation stick in “Honey”.  This stick provides medium buildable coverage. First of course I prepped my skin. I used my witch hazel and thyme leaves toner then moisturized with Mary Kay Time Wise moisturizer for oily/combination skin. I then primed using the Hard Candy primer for oily skin and Maybelline blur primer in my tzone. I set my tzone with Elf Cosmetics translucent power in invisible. For my eyes I used Too Faced Cosmetics primer and La colors concealer palette in medium, I took the lightest color and based my eyes and set that with the Elf Cosmetics translucent powder to prevent creasing. I then used Elf Cosmetics press powder in “Toffee” in my crease as a transition color after I based my entire eyelids with an Elf press powder. I then used my Too Faced “Sweet Peach” palette to add the pops of color in my crease as well as under my eyelid and in my eye corner. For my brow bone highlight I used my Elf press powder. I contoured with my la color contour duo and highlighted with the same la color concealer palette and set my highlight with my ruby kisses banana powder. I also highlighted with my Wet n Wild limited edition highlighter (which is a dupe for a Mac limited edition highlighter that I will discuss in my next post real soon). I also used my Becca Cosmetics moonstone on the tip and bridge of my nose as well as forehead. I cream contoured as well with a rue 21 contour kit and set it with the la color contour duo. My lips I outlined with a wet n Wild brow pencil in black/brown blended it out and wore wet n Wild nudist Peach. I set with my Elf primer must and Mac finishing spray. My blush was by black radiance and I did my brows with a Anastasia Beverly Hills dip brow in chocolate. I also color corrected with la girl color correction in orange. My lashes was by Salon Perfect #614 and I primed my lashes with wet n Wild lash primer and mascara was also by Wet n Wild. That’s it until the next post byyyyyeeee!!💋

Birthday Glamover: Natural Makeup

Hi beauties today I got booked for the second time in 2017. I done a natural makeup look for her birthday. I used my natural palette I ordered from EBay and for Foundation I chose Maybelline Fit Me in the color “Coconut”. The lashes I used was by LA Color in the style “Diva”. The lipstick she is wearing is from my Profusion Cosmetics lip palette.  I had a blast doing her makeup I love what I do and I can’t wait to do more people. 

Happy St. Patrick’s Day 

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!! I hadn’t participated in the green look in ages so I decided why not for 2017?? I broke out my Wet n Wild Cosmetics trio palette in “I Dream of Greenie” ( sorry it has been discontinued) and I used the “I Heart Matte” palette from the brand as well (sorry that is no longer available as well). I chose to use my NARS Foundation with my Wet n Wild Photo finish press power on top. I did not want a really bright highlight so I chose to use my Ulta Beauty Banana powder as my highlight. I contoured with my La Colors Cosmetics highlight and contour duo. On my lips I used Mac Cosmetics “Strip Poker” (limited edition) with La Colors matte liquid lipstick in “Suede” in the middle. For my blush I used my Tarte Cosmetics deluxe sample blush I received in my birthday box from Sephora and for my highlight I chose a cream based highlight from H&M and over it I put Wet n Wild beauty “Precious Metals” everything was set with the Wet n Wild setting spray that’s it🍀🍀🍀

Glam Makeup vs Natural Makeup

Hey beauties today was a lazy day for me, so I decided to play around in makeup, now that I have organized my makeup table and it’s perfect, Why not play?

I decided to do a half and half Face, to showcase the difference between a full glam and a simple everyday look. I only used one palette my Too Faced Cosmetics “Sweet Peach” palette. The Foundation I chose was my NARS Sheer Glow Foundation. The rest of the products including my liquid lipstick choice is in the previous blog. I will say that out of the new Wet n Wild Cosmetics Catsuit liquid lipsticks “Nudist Peach” is my favorite well first choice I am going to purchase the rose color one and try next. Maybe it could be that I am in a “Peach loving” phase but this is definitely a pretty color and its great for everyday. 

I had fun creating this look especially for my clients that say they want a natural look but lean more towards glam.
