Pop art Alert!!!

Everywhere I turn I see Holloween makeup. I really wanted to try something creative, but I don’t like the gory stuff. I came across some awesome artists that have done comic book pop art and was sucked in!!

 Guess who tried her hand at a comic book look??

I sure did!! 

It was so much fun! 

Here’s what I used:

Foundation: Black Radiance Color perfect in Cocoa Bean

Eyes: Phresh eyeshadow from AB Artist Palette

Lips: Scarlet Luster liquid lip from Sephora

For the black, I used some random black Holloween makeup I got at Ricky’s last year.

Now I need to try this with bolder colors!!

Don’t forget to subscribe and be the first to know what I’m up to.

See you soon!

Nude Beat

With this NYC heat, I have not been in the mood to beat this face! However, today…yaaaass hunty! I was feeling a beat face coming on! 

As a single mom I need to keep my fabulous affordable. So this look was done primarily with drugstore makeup (can we say budget friendly?).

Here’s what I used:

Face: Black Radiance- Color Perfect foundation, Toasted Almond blush & Gingersnap bronzer

Lips: Milani Matte Naked, Rimmel Stay Glossy in Blushing Belgraves

Eyes: Estée Lauder Smokey on lids & Maybeline Dark brown from a Natural Smokes palette, ELF pro liner, Maybeline Colossal Volume express mascara
