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!!!

My FoTd: Spring Fever

Hey guys happy Monday!! This morning I went back to my local Mac Cosmetics store to put in an application to try to get on again ((for the 100th plus time) as a freelancer only to get the runaround again for the 100th plus time, my daughters feel it’s time for me to give up and continue just doing my own thing and I have to agree yes it’s time to give up lol

Well for my “interview” look I decided to do a spring look (honestly I had no idea what I was going to do this came out of the blue). Spring is almost here ( well in Louisiana we don’t know we might just go straight into summer🤷🏽‍♀️) 

Well here’s the details. My skin is still acting crazy hopefully this week it will return to oily/combo. For Foundation I pulled out the old Mac Studio Finish Foundation. I primed with the Maybelline blur primer in my tzone and I moisturizer with Dermologica matte lotion. I put translucent powder in my tzone but will not on my nose the Foundation did not stick. For my eyes I primed with La colors concealer in “natural” and set it. I rotated between the Mac neutral palette and the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette. My brows was the Anastasia Beverly Hills dip brow in “chocolate” and the Wet n Wild beauty brow palette. I also used the Wet n Wild liner for my waterline and the NYC liquid eye liner. I contoured with the rue 21 cream contour palette and set with the LA Colors contour duo. I used the Wet n Wild Photo finish press powder to set my Face. I highlighted in my tzone with the LA Girls concealer in yellow and set it with the NYX banana press powder. For blush I used an old Ulta Beauty blush and highlighter duo and to highlight I used Wet n Wild highlight in “Precious Petals” for my lips I used Wet n Wild Catsuit liquid lipstick in “Nudist Peach”. Everything was set with Mac Fix plus and Wet n Wild setting sprays. My lashes is Salon Perfect #614 and I used a Wet n Wild mascara. That’s it guys talk to you later byeeee!!

Halsey for Mac

She’s here..the Halsey’s lipstick by Mac. I was going to pass but i thought this lipstick might be different from my other gray lipsticks,being that this lipstick has a blue undertone. As you can see from the swatch, the undertone is evident.
I have compared this lipstick to Nyx liquid lipstick “Stone Fox” though they are very much in the same family. They are different. “Stone Fox” is a liquid so it will be more pigmented and also Stone Fox is a warmer gray more of a smokey gray. While Halsey is cool. I love that they are both matte.i cannot wait to do a look and have swatch dupes for you .

Hi beauties!!! I recently gotten a new phone and its so aggie when you have to reload apps and remember passwords lol.
She’s here..Mariah for Mac. Mariah Carey teamed up with Mac Cosmetics to release a limited edition lipstick for Christmas, called “All I Want”, based off her best selling Christmas Album and song. The lipstick is a champagne frost. I swatched it today and it is a frost lol. I went into my Mac container to see if there was a dupe so far nope. It reminds me of a Wet n Wild lipstick, but that lipstick is a rose gold. I will come back with a dupe post when I do find one.

Hey Beauties,today I decided to break in my Mac lipstick Matte Royal. I must say I’m in love so now I’m going in an iso (in search of) just so I can have a back up. Lol.

Fotd/June Makeup Challenge #2

image

Hi beauties this is day #2 of the makeup challenge for June. This is an everyday look for me with a pop of color whether it be an eyeliner or an under eye color. I decided to add a twist and do a “colored” eyebrows using my Urban Decay Electric Palette. The products I used are the same except I used my Cover girl Queen CC Cream today and my very pigmented pink Elf blush from my Elf blush quad. The Louisiana heat melts my makeup off so it gets pretty uncomfortable putting on makeup and then having to fight the heat lol. But its my calling and I enjoy transforming into whatever or whomever I want to be!!!👑 the lippie for the day was Mac with the Cinderella lipgloss Romantic Breakdown with Glass slipper and I lined my lips with a Wet n Wild eyeliner called Calling Your Buff.
