Camera Down in KissyFace Town

Morning Lovelies,

Yep, as the title of the posts reads my camera is having, shall I say, a moment. It's having some issues with "memory card error" problems. Whatever that means. I've tried multiple memory cards in the camera but it keeps saying the same thing so it has to be the camera. =( 

I'm doing some research as to how to fix it or what can I do.

I won't let it get in the way of my regular postings. I'll just have to get creative with it. If there's one thing I've learned over the past few years is to keep on going no matter what. Obstacles and circumstances may come to slow you down they should NEVER stop you. 

Thankfully I have some pictures and videos that I've already taken for the some posts and hopefully next week my camera will will be back in working order.

And tomorrow's post will be the official beginning to my Foundations Beauty 101 Series. Looking forward to getting that in full swing. =)

Have an awesome day, lovelies.

the last picture I took with my camera
and it came out blurry. lol It's a flowe.

I'll be posting my a few more posts alter on today as well. =)

XOXO & Many Blessings,
B. Pierre

Face of the Day | Interview Pretty

Afternoon Lovelies,

This past Friday I had an interview for a position. It was my first real interview out of college so I wanted to do it up right but in an approporate tasteful manner. When it comes to wearing makeup for an interview or in a professional setting it's important that what you are wearing isn't what people are focused on. It may catch their attention for how well it looks but it never should be a distraction.

Haitian Heritage Month| Mango Madness

Happy Monday Lovelies,

Hope your weekend was amazing. This morning I'm sharing with you the
second installment to my Haitian Heritage Month Makeup Tutorial Series.

Last week, I showed you a look dedicated to Haitian Flag Day. The follow-up looks I have planned are centered around food, which makes sense. Food is one of the many things that define culture. And mangoes is just one of them for us.

I really wanted to capture the colors and make it vibrant and appealing at the same time.

As a kid, I could remember enjoying this tropical fruit every summer. Even though it's not necessarily a fruit that is exclusively from Haiti, it's a fruit that was prominent in my family.  If you've never tried one, I defintely recommend that you do.


KissyFace TV| Haitian Flag Day Beauty Tutorial

Evening Lovelies,

Here's the look I corresponding video tutorial I promised from the post earlier this afternoon.

It was really fun creating this look. I'm looking forward to sharing more looks with you for this series!

Haitian Heritage Month| Haitian Flag Day Tutorial

Afternoon Lovelies,

As I mentioned before, I was planning on doing some looks to celebrate Haitian Heritage Month. And here's the first one. I'm of Haitian descent and I'm more than enthused to share these looks that I have planned.

Today actually marks Haitian Flag Day, so it's a perfect way to kick start this series of looks for the rest of the month!

The look I created isn't neccessarily a direct representation of the dominant colors. I wanted to do something untraditional and take a different approach. I decided to focus on the colors more on the inside of the white box choosing to focus on the colors of yellow and green.

And when I finished the look the yellow and green reminded me of plantains that I used to eat all the time as a kid. LOL So this look was in dedication to the food as well.

Below are a list of the featured products for this look

Lid| Honey ( Urban Decay)
Crease| Hard Luck ( Kat Von D) & Grafitti ( Urban Decay)
Below Brow Bone| Lime Alive ( Covergirl) and random green and gold eyeshadow Color: 01 ( Giovi, beauty supply store brand)
Highlight| Skin ( NYX) mixed with the highlight color from an Almay brown eyes trio palette
Lower Lashline| (outside to inside) Red for Dangerzone trio, Deep Truth ( MAC Colors)
Waterline and Upper Lashline| Black Gel Liner by Black Radiance
Mascara| Lash Stilletto in Very Black ( Maybelline) followed by Telescopic in Carbon Black ( Loreal)

Concealer| 8002 ( Black Radiance)
Powder| MAC Mineralized SkinFinish in Deep Dark
Cheeks | Red-Orange Pigment  ( MAC)

Lip Liner| Chestnut ( M.A.C. )
Lipstick | Soft Nude ( Revlon)
Lipgloss| Clear LipGlass( M.A.C.)


And here are a close-up of the eyes with and without flash

Have an awesome end to your day, lovelies.

I'll also be posting a video tutorial for this look as well later this evening.

Much love & Many Blessings,
B. Pierre


Behind the Scenes: An Evening Photo Shoot with Mr. Three Bear

Lovely Saturday Morning Lovelies,

Have a beautiful Saturday. Make the most of what's presented to you today. And enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Photoshoot: An Evening with Mr. Three Bear

Morning Lovelies!

About two weeks ago, I had the pleasure of doing makeup for a photoshoot. The photographer wanted to shoot somewhere with horses and we came across a local stable that was willing to help us out with the shoot.

For one Saturday evening we had the pleasure of working with a horse by the name of Mr. Three Bear.

We went with a very natural makeup look here. It was a new experience for me since I've never been so close to horses, well not that I remember anyway. Here are a couple of shoots from the day.

Photographer: Ed Maximus
Model: Sheina Mompremier

Tomorrow, I'll be uploading a behind the scenes video for our trip that day.

Much Love & Many Blessings,
B. Pierre


Beauty 101: Shades, Tones and Tints

Happy Tuesday Morning Lovelies,

Even though school is out my "real" education is just beginning or shall I say is recommencing. I mentioned in a previous post as to how I forgot what the focus of my blog was and that I really want to get back to that. One of the most important thing to my blog was sharing what I've been learning. And I haven't been doing that. Now with school out of the way, I can really pour my energy into studying beauty. I'm so excited. When I dive in? I DIVE IN. So be prepared for the overload.

And to start things off, we're going to start with foundation. I really want to dedicate this summer to foundation. One post a week will be dedicated to that topic. There's so much I don't know and that needs to be remedied immediately. So why not share, right?   I've got other ideas looming in my head for the blog too but I've got to map it out. =)

I really want to perfect my foundation application skills and truly be able to match a woman's skin tone beautifully. In the past I've been fine to mix colors but not necessarily take on this higher skilled approach from this video I'm presenting to you.

Thanks to Koren of EnkoreMakeup, I came away with these three new vocabulary words:

Tint= Color + White
Tone= Color + Grey
Shade= Color + Black

And I definitely need to get a color wheel ASAP.

Looking forward to sharing with you what I learn as I partake on this journey. So far so good, right?

This post was just a kickoff sharing my excitement as to what I'm already learning. But next week, I want to focus on  moisturizers then primers because essentially that what a good foundation starts off with, which are those key steps.

Is there anything in particular you want to learn about foundation? Foundation tips you want to share? Comment down below. I'd love to read what you know or desire to know. We can all learn together

Much Love & Many Blessings,
B. Pierre

P.S. Do not sleep on Youtube. People are sharing some awesome information.


KissyFace TV| Picture Perfect Graduation

Morning Lovelies,

KissyFace TV | Claudia Stevens Facial Prep Foundation Base Video Review

Here's the video I mentioned before.

I'm getting a little more comfortable with the camera so more of my sarcastic, goofy personality is coming through, which I'm happy about.  It'll only be a matter of time till I get rid of my ummmms too.

Enjoy the rest of your day!

Much Love & Many Blessings,

KissyFace Approved? | Equate Naturally Beaming Daily Moisturizer

In my skincare post, I mentioned that I was looking for a new moisturizer and just in the last week, I found something that suited my needs.

Originally I was looking for a gel-like moisturizer but this one caught my eye while browsing in the skincare aisle.


Celebrations | Haitian Heritage Month

The national and official state flag of Haiti;...Image via WikipediaNot sure if I've touched upon my ethnicity too much on this blog but I'm of Haitian-descent but it hasn't been until my late teens and into my twenties did I truly begin to appreciate my culture, what it's about and who we are  as a people.

So appropriately, with this being Haitian Heritage Month, I'm going to be sharing a few looks that will be inspired by some pictures that I can dig up. A lot of these looks aren't neccessarily going to be "wearable" but it's all in fun and in celebration of what's molded me to be the woman that I am.

Hope you guys like what I come up with. =)

Much Love & Many Blessings,
B. Pierre

KissyFace Approved? | Black Radiance Concealer

Yesterday I uploaded my review on all the products that I  had purchased from Black Radiance and shared with you a more in-depth review as to what I particularly thought about the foundations which I was pleased with immensely.


KissyFace TV| Black Radiance Products

Evening Lovelies,

Here's the video review as promised on the Black Radiance products I've tried. Hope you like and be sure to  comment, thumbs up and subscribe if you haven't already.

KissyFace Approved?| Black Radiance Foundations

It looks like I'm on a KissyFace Approved? blog rampage. I've got a few more things that I want to share with you all. I've made a few purchases recently and I want to get in the habit of giving you my opinions on products and sharing my thoughts with you on them.

About two weeks ago, I had a photo shoot that I had needed some products for.  I didn't want to spend too much money but I wanted something of good quality. Plus I wanted something that are women of color friendly so I choose to try Black Radiance at Walmart.

I had been curious about what they had to offer in the past so I thought it was good timing to try them out. I ended picking up five items. Some were hits others were misses.
