Pride 🏳️‍🌈 2018

June is Pride month for my gay friends and what better way to support them by using my “Box of Crayons ” palette from The Crayon Case.

Rainbows signifies gay pride in the gay community, so I decided to keep the tradition going by doing the signature rainbow look.

Here’s the details on this look:

Mist my face with Mario Badescu rose water spray ( I no longer moisturize I just use my primer)

Brows: La Colors brow pomade “dark brown”

Cleaned up with Makeup Revolution concealer “C9”

Eyes:

Too Faced primer potion “original”

Makeup Revolution concealer “c9” and La Colors concealer “light” ( I did not set, so the colors can be vibrant )

Wet n Wild “Rose’ in the Air” palette ( I used the the light transition color as a transition in my crease”

The Crayon Case “Box of Crayons” palette. I used Orange (shimmer) in my crease, Red (matte) below the crease blended into my crease and added to my outer v. I then cut my crease using the Kat Von D white concealer and letting it get tacky, I added white (shimmer) to my inner corner lid as well as yellow (matte), and again the red color. On my bottom lid, I added purple, green (mattes), and blue (shimmer).

The top lid I used Wet n Wild black gel liner and a Hobby lobby black reflect glitter and on my bottom eye I used a black liner and added some very full lashes I will have more information on later.

Face:

Covergirl matte primer

La Colors matte foundation

I first used my bombshell cosmetic translucent powder to set my t zone and color corrected using La Colors orange concealer. I contoured with foundation for a more natural look using L’Oréal tru match foundations and I used la Colors fair concealer to my highlight to add a touch of brightness. I set using my Anastasia Beverly Hills contour kit (powder) and I highlighted with Fenty Beauty “Killawatt” highlight over Maybelline strobe liquid highlight.

Lips:

A off brand champagne pink color lipstick lined with an off brand brown lip liner and Fenty Beauty “Gloss Bomb” lipgloss.

That’s it, I enjoyed this makeup look and it received a lot of engagements.

The Crayon Case Fest

Hey Beauties!!! It’s no stranger, it is me, lol, I know I’ve been m.i.a. And with good reason, I’ve been working a lot more, dreams has to be funded and reality is real, lol, but while I was away, I’ve been getting new makeup and skincare goodies and I can’t wait to share them with you.

Starting now,

On June 2nd, I had the opportunity to travel to New Orleans to attend The Crayon Case one year anniversary pop up shop. I live an hour and half away from New Orleans, so it’s not like I traveled far, lol.

If you’re not familiar with the brand The Crayon Case, here’s a little information for you. The Crayon Case is a woman owned, black owned makeup cosmetics brand, that was started by New Orleans native and Instagram celebrity, Supa Cent. Her brand is dedicated to amateur and pro makeup artists and makeup lovers. The cosmetic brand centers around a school theme as per makeup is an always continuing learning art.

I was excited to attend, because I wanted her always sold out palette “Box of Crayons” , which is a colorful palette, named after crayons, you would find in a crayon box, I already owned her ibrow pomade and concealer palette in number two.

The event was held at a pop up location in downtown New Orleans and the event was packed like a concert, she had vendors or small business owners there as well as food and drinks, but the line was wrapped around waiting to get our hands on her items!

After a few hours, it started raining and the line was extremely long so I left with my family to go browse in stores and let the crowd or line die down and one hour later I had my hand on the famous palette!

The trip was definitely worth it, though I did not meet the CEO Supa herself, I was just happy to be out to a makeup event and get my hands on “The Box of Crayons” palette.

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.

Viva Glam Taraji P. Henson

Hello dolls!!
How was everyone Valentine’s Day? I am single so I had a wonderful galentines day complete with a nice dinner and some wonderful gifts. I received the Viva Glam Taraji P. Henson lipstick and lipglass by Mac Cosmetics..I was super surprised it was on my wishlist. Before I get into my first impression, I want to remind you that every purchase of this lipstick or any other Viva Glam lipstick or lipgloss or glass goes to the Mac Aids Fund which helps with medicine, food, clothes etc for men, women,and children affected by the HIV or Aids virus.
Viva glam Taraji is a matte, pinkish red lipstick that compliments every skintone. I am a yellow undertone so it shows up on me as a reddish pink.
My first impression is i like it. I have not worn the lipstick alone, for Valentine’s look i decided to pair them together.
The lip glass is also a pinkish red that compliments every skintone. The lipglass has a sort of glittery undertone to it that makes it fun to wear. I think both would do good on their own but great together.
The lipstick was definitely long lasting i wore it for like 4 to 6 hours. I will definitely do another look for my YouTube video so be on the look out!
Dupes for the lipstick is
💋Wet n Wild “Cherry Picking” which is also matte but slightly darker
💋Revlon Cosmetics “Cherries In The Snow” which is a creme. I don’t know if Revlon still sells this lipstick though. The Wet n Wild one is a permanent among their line. “Cherries In The Snow” is also tad darker
I don’t wear lipglosses as much I am not a fan so i can’t give you any dupes but I would start with the Wet n Wild line first.
