Series: Bright Idea

I haven’t done a makeup look in so long, feel like years! So scrolling through my Facebook pictures, I came up with an idea to do a series.. recreate my old makeup looks, I have done on myself to see if I have grown in my artistry.

I decided to start with my picture in 2011 of the look, I done using the very popular Wet n Wild trios, that had all makeup lovers trolling stores!

Products used:

Brows: The Crayon Case “iBrow” pomade in medium brown and the “Conceal Me” palette in #2


Too Faced Shadow Insurance

The Crayon Case “Conceal Me” palette ( the lightest color)

set with Elf Cosmetics translucent powder

Wet n Wild trio ( limited edition circa 2010) “Bright Ideas”

Disclaimer: I take VERY good care of all my makeup

NYC liquid eyeliner (discontinued)

La Colors single shadow “Foxy” as a transition color

Salon Perfect lashes in #615 my favs!!!

I repeated the colors on my lower lash line and used an OCC lip liner/eyeliner in “Tarred”

L’Oréal “Paradise” mascara (my favorite mascara)


Elf primer list

Strivectin pore filler

Lancôme Teint Idole foundation ( review coming soon)

Elf foundation palette (lightest color as a highlight) set with lightest color in Elf Cosmetics contour palette

I color corrected with La Colors Peach corrector

Cream contour La Girls Cosmetics concealer in ” Expresso” set with the medium color in the Elf contour palette

I also bronzed with the medium color as well

Press powder used was Fashion Cosmetics press powder “Fawn” Covergirl Cosmetics


Cream highlight

Makeup Revolution Cosmetics “Golden Lights” and Mac Cosmetics ” Soft n Gentle”


Purple color ordered offline

NYX liquid suede lipstick put in the middle

Everything was set with icing Dusk to Dawn setting spray (dupe for Urban Decay all nighter setting spray)

That’s it so excited for the next look


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👄

Makeup Look 3/14/15


My client wanted a shimmer look, here’s a list of products used. Since she was attending an all white event and was wearing black it was only right to give her a gold smokey eye. After I prepped her skin I used:
Primer: Cherimoya conceal primer
Eye Primer: Mac Cosmetics soft Ochre
Eyeshadows: Profusion Palette (which is VERY pigmented). I used a light gold and dark gold. I used my eBay matte shadow palette for her transition color and black shadow. I blended until everything blended well.
Foundation: Revlon Color stay
Conceal/Contour: I used the fairest shade of Revlon Color Stay foundation and the darkest foundation of to contour and highlight before the foundation application
Bronzer: E.L.F. bronzer/Blush palette
Blush: Cherimoya palette she chose the pink with silver flecks that gave her the blushing look after well blended out
Mascara: L.A. Colors Luxe Mascara
Eyeliner: E.L.F. liquid eyeliner/Wet n Wild black eyeliner
Lipstick: E.L.F. lipstick pencil in pinky nude since she wanted a “wet” look and the pencil was matte,I applied a LA Colors lip gloss that was pinky nude over lipstick. I then took a brown liner and lined her corner lips to give an ombre effect
Highlighter: Sally’ s girl, I applied it under her eyes to her cheeks to give her that highlight she requested.
I then applied lashes and she was done
