Inspired by- Rihanna

I wanted to do another look today. This time I thought that since I get tons of comments saying I look like Rhianna I might as well do a tutorial for one of her makeup looks. I always love Rhianna's makeup. Always flawless, creative, and fresh! I just might do a few more in the future.

Here's a pic of the look I recreated...

I absolutely LOVE it!! Its simple, yet bold. The red winged liner is FAB!! The soft brows and nude lips bring it all together.

Here's my recreation...





















Without the lashes...





I still don't see it.. lol Maybe a slight resemblance... :P

FACE
Ben Nye Banana powder

I did not apply any foundation or concealor because of the heat and humidity. It is finally getting hot in my area! I dusted the Banana powder over my face and by the time I was finished applying the rest of my face I was shiny again. Next time I'll use MUFE HD powder to see how that hold up. My skin gets so greasy! 
The pics are not very clear because I used my nikon coolpix (old camera) to take them. I have to buy a new SD card for my Canon PowerShot (New!) because all of a sudden it wont read any of the others I already have.. Grrr.. So many technical difficulties! But everything will be up and running very soon. I have HUGE plans in store! 

Much Love!

Inspired by- BeBe ad

Was bored so I thought I would start a series of posts called "Inspired by". Here I will recreate looks or draw inspiration from any outside source. Pictures, ads, other youtubers, ect..

For this particular one, I recreated a look from an ad for BeBe that I found in Glamour Magazine. Heres a picture.



Matte skin, Bold cheeks, Bright overdrawn lip. The eyes I would totally wear outside! lol. Anyway, heres my look!





LMFAO!! I have a smudge of black eyeliner on the side of my nose... eww
I don't know if overdrawn lips work for me... oh well. I like how natural her brows look which is why I filled mine in only a little and brushed them upward. I like thick brows, so what!

Freshwater Knight FOTD

Last night I attempted to go out...



I looked Fabulous! From head to toe! Cute hair, fly outfit, hot ass shoes!! And makeup was Bangin'! IMO
Sadly it was one of the worst nights I've had... ever... Oh well. I didn't even get INTO the club! People just do not know how to act once the weather warms up.. Ughh...
I took pics before I left! lol for a change! I'm a little upset because my SD card broke (kids) and it is not detected in my new camera (which I am still trying to learn how to use :P). I had to use my other camera to take the pics. The other cam does not flash any more for some reason...

But here they are....




Luckily, I used a great base and primer last night! My makeup is still intact! So here are some pics in natural light...

I did not use any foundation or concealor because it was hot and I did not want to come home any shinier then I already was. The men were comin for me left and right! Haha! I am not wearing the blush or the lipstick in the last set of pics.

Hope you like!

Makeup Mania haul...

I have heard alot about La Femme blushes and decided that I wanted to try them out. I did some searches and for a few websites that sold them. They are actually incredibly cheap. I decided to purchase from Makeupmania.com

I also found some other things that I was also interested in purchasing for my kit from this site such as, Ben Nye Banana powder and a Japonesque emtly lip palette.

I made my order and got free shipping because it was over $100. I waited for it to come in the mail... I waited and waited... and waited....

I did call in to speak to someone.. Finally I received my package about a month later. They told me many of the items I ordered were on back order and they had to restock because of an overwhelming amount of orders of those particular products, mostly the La Femme blushes!!

Ok so, I cracked open my box to discover one of the items I ordered missing. Called them yet again to find out what was going on and finally just a few days ago I received all of the rest of the products that I ordered, over 2 months later... ughh...

The quality is good, so was the customer service even though I did have to play phone tag alot. All in all I would order from this company again but I would call and make sure that they had the products that I wanted in stock ahead of time to avoid what I experienced with this order... Call me crazy but some of their prices are unbeatable!

Heres what I got...


The blushes were $2.50 each. I got 22 of them! I do wish that they had a wider color range. I was looking for some darker shades of brown.. Maybe I'm being picky, they do have a TON of colors.. :P




Ben Nye Banana powder and Neutral set powder.




La Femme cake mascara in Brown and Black.




3 Lip pencils




4 brow pencils

I also got 2 eyeliners in blue and black (not pictured).. Nothing special.




& finally a Japonesque double sided empty lipstick palette. Great for the kit!!

My FOTD for the meet and greet last night

I am still trying to figure out this new camera so The pics are nothing spectacular... But here you go!







I should have taken these ahead of time because by the time I got back home my shin was so shiny!

A friends FOTD

I did my Friends makeup the other day and just thought that I should post pics.


I wanted to do something a little different because I have been kinda stuck in the same old ways.. Not that that is a bad thing but change is always good. I had a peachy mauve theme in mind as I was doing this. I really like how it turned out. For the lips I mixed a few things together to create a unique look.

I used 2 La Femme Blushes on her cheeks. These blushes are highly pigmented!!
