Black Radiance’s 4 Color Eyeshadow “Vivid Imagination”

16 Feb

So it’s obvious that I’m totally I love with Black Radiance as a brand. It’s a drug store brand of cosmetics that really cater to women of color. Score! Not only does Black Radiance currently have an impressive selection of products you can use on your entire face, they have these incredible new high impact color quads that are sure to look fab on anyone!

The look I created I used almost all Black Radiance products but the intensity of the rich cobalt blue from the Vivid Imagination palette definitely is the stand out star of this look. Silky smooth, super pigmented and super blend able, this palette gets high marks all across the board for me!

PSC Lip Whips (Swatches)!! Intense Color with Mega Shine

17 Sep

PSC Lip Whips: Pigmented lipgloss, with long lasting shine. Comes in a jarred container or as a pre-selected or custom 4-5 color palette. Some shades have longer wear than others. Some shades are more pigmented than others. You will need to reapply, but not often. Can be a stand alone lip color, but to prolong the wear, I suggest lining and filling in your lips with a similar colored lip liner. Now check out these dope shades!

All pics are of the lip colors without lip liner. True to tone.

(Above) PSC Lip Whip in Bam Bam: An intensely pigmented cranberry color with fuschia shimmer/ undertones.

PSC Lip Whip in “Mystic”: A “Welch’s” Grape colored lip color. Mega shine and opaque.

PSC Lip Whip in “Bubble Gum Minaj”: A sweet, deep rose pink with shimmer/ iridescent. Not as opaque as the other shades, but is a true colored lipgloss.

PSC Lip Whip in “Caramelize”: A deep, golden bronze, high shimmer lip color. Opaque.

PSC Lip Whip in “Sophia”: A true, babydoll pink color. Ultra moisturizing and opaque.

PSC Lip Whip in “Dulce De Leche”: A beige colored, nude lip color. Opaque and ultra glossy.

PSC Lip Whip in “Hush”: OOOHH LA LA!! A rich lavender lip color. Opaque and super glossy. (My FAV!)

PSC Lip Whip in “What A Doll”: A mid-toned, rich “Barbie” pink lip color. Opaque and ultra glossy.

PSC Lip Whip in “Kim Da Vixen”: Oh yes, this is truly a dope lip color. The perfectly pinched, pale coral lip color. Ultra glossy with an opaque coverage.

One last look at all the PSC Lip Whips!

Check out my video/ demo on these fantastic lip colors!

Double Take: 2012 VMA Rhianna’s Red Carpet Look (Rock Lips 2 Ways)

10 Sep

Image

There are very little “misses” when it comes to Island beauty Rhianna’s makeup choices. This classic red lip and lush lashes plays up the singer’s unique features flawlessly. Little moderations have been made to modernize this “pin up” inspired look as well, so I took the liberty of making my own little tweak to make it my own.

To start, I “closed off” the eyes by tight-lining my upper and lower waterline using a black khol pencil instead of going for the wide-eyed effect with using white or cream eyeliner. Secondly, I opted for a cranberry toned, glossy lip color instead of the matte true red or red orange shade seen worn by Rhianna.

Image

Either way, I wanted to stay true to the spirit of this look and kept the flawless, glowy skin, shimmery, golden tinted lids, bold liner/ lashes and passionate pout. Check out how I rocked out this look!

Rock it out like it’s 1991!! Azaelia Banks “1991” Inspired Look

10 Sep

Products Used:
Face:

Smashbox Photo Ready Primer

Nivea Cream (moisturizer)

Estee Lauder Stay Put Concealer

Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation

Black Opal Concealing Foundation, Carob

Eyes:

Urban Decay Primer Potion, Original

Sephora Primal Instincts Palette

Ruby Kisses gel liner, Rich Black

ColorfulOnline duo fiber mascara

Lips:

LA Splash pigment, Passionate Plum

HOW amazing is this look? This bold lip and understated eye look screams HBIC in a matter of plum lips and lashes. Although I used little more than lipstick and mascara to re-create this “Rap Rapunzel” Inspired vintage creation, it’s obvious that to pull off this daring look, swagger is a must have accessory! Two snaps DIVAS!

BeautyMint.com (Giveaway and Info)

1 Mar

 

HEY DIVAS!!! I first heard about Beauty Mint through a site called Mylikes.com. My Likes is a great site for people who already make videos focused on specific interests like hair, makeup, fashion, beauty, etc. and give them an opportunity to make some extra money for making those videos. You get paid to do something you already do! Feature products that you’re interested in or already love for money! Don’t get me wrong, it’s not lots and lots of money, but it’s a fantastic incentive nonetheless.

Beauty is something you already KNOW I’m into, but I have yet to really delve into, and divulge to you my skin care regime. That’s because, up until recently, I really didn’t have one! I was interested in Beauty Mint because I love me some Jessica Simpson (I don’t care what y’all say, she’s adorable and her shoes are the BIZNESS!!!), and I’m always curious about full lines of comprehensive/ complete skin care products.

I received my BeuatyMint package, and I was utterly amazed at the abundance of products that came packed in that adorable box. I was really overwhelmed. I decided to pay it forward and get these products in the hands of some gorgeous Diva or Divo who wanted to get their skin together, and not break the bank to get quality products.  So I am officially opening up my very first MARCH MADNESS DIVA Giveaway for 2012! The first prize package that I’m featuring is a wonderful beauty/ skin package sponsored by BeautyMint.com! Check out the video below to get all the info on this Giveaway and this product line.

Beat that Face GIRL! Diva Double Take: Soft, Shimmery Silver Eyes/ Nude Lips

29 Feb

Inspiration, Jennifer Hudson

 

Artist, Lead Vocalist "Kool's Bazaar" Naz The Anti Star

I took a slightly different approach with this rendition. Instead of the cool silver lids, and warm fleshy lips and cheeks that Jennifer Hudson rocked on the red carpet, I opted to bring more warmth on the eyes by introducing peachy, shimmers into the crease and lower lash line. Rich, charcoal gray shadows were applied into the crease to further define the area, but is blended out to create a diffused transition into the upper brow bone area. I soften the black liner on the upper and lower lash line to give a more “smokey” effect using a precision, crease brush.

For the face, I lightly dusted a high sheen, highlighter onto the high planes and the apples of her cheeks. I kept the rest of her face mostly low sheen, but slightly contoured her face using a warm, matte bronzing powder to create shape and definition.

The lips were dressed with an opaque, super glossy, pale brown color and a deep cocoa pencil created dimension to her pout.

Her lippys are provided by M.A.C. Cosmetic’s Glitter and Ice Collection, “Winter Cool” http://www.maccosmetics.com/product/7561/19178/Iced-Delights-Lip-BagWintercool/index.tmpl

 

Kohl as ICE: NYX Collection Noir’s Kohl Kajal Black Liner

29 Feb

I don’t need to be too wordy with this post folks. It is what it says it is; a black khol liner. This comes courtesy of NYX’s new Collection Noir line, (ooh, look who’s getting fancy), and let me say, this is an awesome, rich black, heavily pigmented, easy gliding khol pencil. Definitely adding this pencil to my staple products in my MUA (Makeup Artist) Kit.


Retails for about $6.00, which isn’t that bad at all. A little does the trick, but a lot, whew, super sultry, smokey eyes are right in your reach!

NYX HD Concealers: High Def Quality for Low Funds??

29 Feb

DIVAS!!!!!! AHHHHHHH I found my new most-loved concealer (opinion is subject to change, with my fickle-ass, ha!).

And first off, before you even go there…NO I do not work for NYX, I just love their products! No, but seriously, as an MUA I can appreciate different products with different textures and finishes, to satisfy and create different looks for a multitude of skin types/shades.

With that being said, I am rarely satisfied with a one-stop shop type of product that I can use all across the board. As fabulous as NYX HD Concealers are, I can’t let go or part with other brands’ concealer choices altogether.

BUT wait, let me tell you about this ish righ here! THIS ISH RIGHT HERE!!! Fantastic! It’s a high definition formulated, skin correcting product that is as lightweight as it is powerful. Definitely photo friendly! The texture is smooth, heavy duty yet thin, and it sort of “sets” itself once the product is worked into the skin, especially using a cosmetic sponge. I still would suggest you dust on a light, translucent powder just to be extra sure that the product is locked into place.

I didn’t see the product available on the NYX Cosmetics site, but I gathered up a few from Ulta.com (a life saver!), retails $5.49
http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?skuId=2215590&productId=xlsImpprod3460285&navAction=push&navCount=1&subdoc=33830offwk2310nyx&categoryId=cat80024

NYX Matte Lipsticks: More bang for your POUT!

29 Feb

DIVAS!!! How fabulous are matte lipsticks?? Well, if done right, they can be a dream come true for us trendy chicks. I got my hands on a few of NYX’s Matte Lipsticks, and I must say, NYX still hasn’t dissappointed me.

For my first round of purchases of these lipsticks, I opted to go for the uber-girly route, PINKS, from pale to bold!

"Audrey" "Shocking Pink"

"Sweet Pink" "Tea Rose"

"Audrey" a pale pink shade

"Shocking Pink" a bright pink with a blue undertone

"Tea Rose" a soft pink with blue undertones

"Sweet Pink" true pink shade with blue undertone

"Sweet Pink" true pink shade with blue undertone

Offering a well-rounded, range of shades, from the faintest of nudes to the deepest reds, the color pay off is amazing, and the staying power is quite impressive. This product does boast somewhat of it’s long wear ability, but after about an hour or so, the product does dim and fade a bit, especially through eating and drinking.

NYX Matte Bronzers

29 Feb

DIVAS!!!!!!! NYX Cosmetics has some fantastic new matte-themed products, and I just had to get my hands on them!
These matte bronzers are absolutely fabulous and multi-useful, might I add.

Although most of the shades they have available have a slight red undertone, these products can be used as a foundation setting powder as well, for women/ men of richer skintones.


The price points are what most of you guys may be accustomed to when it comes to this line; affordable and superior quality (http://www.nyxcosmetics.com/products/face/bronzers/matte-bronzer retails $9.00)
The Matte Bronzer line comes in 5 shades; Light, Deep, Medium, Dark Tan and Deep Tan. NYX also debut with their Illuminating Bronzers for those looking for a more “traditional” bronzing experience!

Check out these links!
