Fire And Ice

it was raining on Sunday here in Louisiana so I decided to spend my day off creating makeup looks. This makeup look like a sunrise sunset type look, but I added a twist blue glitter. I wanted to do a complete red eye, but decided I wanted to add other colors to it ( wouldn’t be me if I didn’t shake up things). Here’s the product breakdown:

Brows:

The Crayon Case iBrow pomade “medium brown”

The Crayon Case concealer in #2

Eyes:

Too Faced Shadow insurance

The Crayon Case concealer palette (lightest color as a base)

Sugarpill palette “Burning Heart”

Kohl’s palette as a transition color and the gold in the corner eyes

I also set the concealer with some elf translucent powder to keep from creasing

BH Cosmetics “Take Me to Brazil” palette the shimmer blue as a base for the blue

Hobby lobby glitter

Face:

Elf poreless primer

Strivectin pore fillet

NARS sheer glow foundation

La Girls Cosmetics pro concealers

Elf Cosmetics contour palette

Elf illuminating palette

Wet n Wild contour palette

Covergirl foundation

H&M Bronzer

I wasn’t satisfied with my contour and bronzer so I used my Ulta Beauty contour palette

I also used the gold highlighter in the Ulta palette as well

Elf blush palette

Lips:

Brown lip liner

Mac Cosmetics x Nicki Minaj Lipstick “Nicki’s Nude “

Set with Elf setting spray

That’s it

Black Girl Magic with Black Radiance

Disclaimer: Photos are not mine
Fall must the season for jewel tones! Cosmetic lines are debuting jewel tones to welcome in everyone's favorite season.
Black Radiance Cosmetics has decided to join in on the fun by debuting four limited edition jewel tones liquid lipsticks, expanding their "Perfect Tone" matte lip creme line (in my opinion is the BEST drugstore liquid lipsticks besides NYX cosmetics now).
The liquid lipsticks again are limited edition and is out now. They are definitely perfect for dark to deep dark skintones. Their lip cremes are very pigmented and long lasting. The only con I have with them is that they can be very drying on the lip so I do suggest moisturizing your lips. The lip cremes are stay proof. My favorite colors are "Matte Bright" and the purple one! They just make your lips pop!
I can not wait to try these on myself and on my clients!!! Which ones are you getting? Are you getting the entire collection? What do you think about the Black Radiance lip cremes? Leave your thoughts in the comment section below.
