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”


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.


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.


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.

Aaliyah x Mac

I’m so excited for this collection!!! It is long overdue. About a year or two ago a petition was started asking Mac to add the late singer Aaliyah to their list of collaborations as per as they done for the late singer Selena and as you can see it was a success!!!!

I’m guessing the lipstick that Mac has released a sneak peek of on their Instagram page will be called “Baby Girl” as that was Aaliyah’s nickname, all in all, I am excited for this collection.

Client Tales

I didn’t want to create two blog posts, yes, I’m being lazy so I wanted to share some client work I’ve done this month so far, the first is a neutral look for family photos and the second was for a gender reveal. All products were tagged on my Instagram which is CreatingCanvasesMakeup why aren’t you following 🤔

Client Glam: Neutral Beauty

Today, I had my first client in February and the second for the new year ( the down side of freelancing). She’s a first time client and she requested a neutral look with a pop of color. I used the same products as my previous post for the brows, and the face, but for the eyes, I rotated between my Morphe palette and my Nicka K Cosmetics “Saharan Sand” palette. When it came to her lips, she stated she hated lipstick and requested a clear gloss, so I used a concealer to mute her lips and make a skintone nude and added a clear lipgloss from LA Colors Cosmetics.

That’s it, something simple, but beautiful and a chance to always do what I love.

Happy Mardi Gras (late post)

Hey Beauties!!! If you have been following me for some time (thank you for hanging with me) then you know I’m from Louisiana and in February it’s carnival time or for us Mardi Gras. I am not a Mardi Gras fan , I personally think it’s overrated, noises, and an excuse for people to be legally publicly intoxicated, but this year I made a promise to myself that I will enjoy the holidays and festivities lol. I had to work Mardi Gras day, so since because I knew we were working short, I did my Mardi Gras Inspired look early and if you are friends with me or follow my public Facebook makeup page then you’ve seen the tutorial on this look.

If you are wondering about the different looks , it’s bc I actually recreated this look three times!!! My daughter messed up the video and I ended up recreating this look on Snapchat ( teeslaysfaces) which if you follow me there you will see more tutorials.

The product breakdown is the same as the previous posts except for the top pictures, I used SmashBox Cosmetics B.B. water foundation in medium, this foundation at first I felt was too dark for me, but upon using it again, I am loving it, very lightweight and soft Dewey, but it’s transferable. On my lips is Mac Cosmetics “Heroine” lipstick. I used a limited edition Wet n Wild palette and a Sugarpill Cosmetics palette and my Myo Cosmetics neon stack . The glitters are from Walmart and Hobby Lobby.
