Simple and bold all summer ’17

Hello!! Louisiana tends to get extremely hot so I decided my signature look will be a simple face and a bold lip. Summer is the PERFECT time to go bold. Yesterday I decided to try my sample of the Lancôme Teint Idole foundation I gotten from Dillard’s about a month ago. I am in the market of expanding my foundation line and I want to start buying more “higher end” foundations and since I have heard rave reviews why start with Lancôme?? My first impression is that it’s very comfortable on the face for me a little went along way I just added more where I needed the coverage and that was in my t zone. The Foundation lasted even through the heat and I sweated lol. This is now on my buy list. 

The very bold orange lip I am rocking is “Matte Bright” by Black Radiance Cosmetics. This liquid matte lipstick is very bright, I actually built it up bc I wanted to blind the people, but a little goes a long way for this as well. The lippie can be drying but applying a lip balm, wipe, then apply the lippie you should be fine. This lipstick does has lasting powers so you won’t be reapplying as much. This lippie works great with medium to deep skin tones. Though Black Radiance is catered to Women or Men of color (it is NOT black owned) the liquid lipsticks can work for ALL skin tones! 

If you are not already, please follow me on Snapchat at CreatingCanvasesMakeup there I am giving my opinion on this lippie and I talk about a blinding highlight you won’t believe from…and it cost me only $1.99

Affordable Palettes

These are EBay palettes I have ordered for my personal use and kit. These are great starters or alternatives to the Mac Cosmetics warm palette and the Urban Decay Electric palette. These palettes are very pigmented and is slightly larger than a Mac eye-shadow. The shipping was either free or next to nothing. So if you are looking to start your kit or add to your personal kit, head over to Ebay . disclaimer: this is my own personal thoughts, I am NOT paid nor endorsed by EBay. Thanks
