I’m super excited for today’s post! Just before Christmas, I visited Krista of K’s Makeup Artistry. Krista is from Kincaid, Saskatchewan and recently decided that she was going to become a makeup artist and is working on getting certified from a school in California. She has such amazing natural talent (and always looks gorgeous herself) so it’s such a perfect fit for her.
We had such a great time and she did a super fun holiday look on me. I’ve listed the products that she used down below! She created a beautiful sparkly eye and paired it with a neutral lip to tone things down a bit. Not only is Krista clearly an amazing makeup artist, but she is also a beautiful person inside and out. Her chair is at Laser Body Rejuvenation in Kincaid- a new stored owned by another amazing lady, Jenna. I would highly recommend stopping in and checking out the awesome products and services that she offers! And seriously everyone- if you ever need makeup done for any special event, party, or just because you feel like a pampering, give Krista a call. I can’t tell you enough how good she is!!
Products Krista Used:
- Benefit- The Porefessional primer
- Mac- Studio Face and Body foundation
- Urban Decay- eye shadow primer in Eden
- Too Faced- eye shadow in “Oh, Deer!” and “Angelie”
- Stila- liquid eye shadow glitter in “Smoldering Satin”
- Lancome- Hypnose mascara
- Tarte- Maracuja Creaseless concealer in “Fairly Light Neutral”(under eyes)
- Make Up Forever- concealer (blemishes)
- Benefit- Hoola bronzer
- Becca- highlighter in “Opal”
- Make Up Forever- lipstick and blush
This is a bit of a different post for me, so I also wanted to include a bit of a new makeup review. Krista and Jenna stock the makeup line from “The Balm” in the store and I grabbed a couple of the products to try. I have the Smoke Balm eye shadow palette, the eye shadow stick in “Moonshot” and the Meet Matte Nude Matte Lipstick in “Sincere”.
The Smoke Balm palette features 3 shades- a sparkly black, a matte brown, and then a shimmery highlight shade. The three pair together to make quite a few different looks depending on how dramatic you want to go. For myself, I like to wear the brown in my crease and then deepen the outer corner with the black. All over my lid, I add a layer of the Moonshot eye shadow stick and then pat the highlight shade out of the palette on top. Layering the cream and shadow helps the looser pigment stick and helps the colours to pop even more. I also use the highlight on my brow bone. I have also used the highlight shade as a cheek highlight and really loved how it looked. All of these shadows blended flawlessly and the colours are really amazing! I would high recommend this palette for anyone that wants to create gorgeous shadow looks with ease. The Meet Matte Nude Lipstick is also a wonderful product! I have the shade Sincere and love how pigmented it is. With a slight peppermint taste, this lipstick lasts forever and dries down super matte. It is completely transfer-proof and wears beautifully.
I can’t wait to try more of these products and keep experimenting with the ones I have!
