OUIJA 🔮💧👀 tag a friend you’d play with! ____ inspired by @ssssamanthaa’s look which was inspired by a drawing by @fourfires! ____ For this look I used my @morphebrushes 35B palette (use code “JAMES” for 10% off!). For the eyes, stars, and letters I used my @nyxcosmetics liquid liner. My lunar glow is @anastasiabeverlyhills moon child glow kit. I created the eye with my @maccosmetics white chromacake & my lashes on all 3 eyes are @houseoflashes.
STRAIGHT OUTTA MARVEL 💥 peep the new username 👀 I did this look last year and wanted to recreate it again and see the change in skill! ____ this is inspired by my babe @alissa.ashley check hers out! ____ I used @morphebrushes gel liner in slate for the detail lines, & this entire look was using morphe brushes (use code JAMES for 💸 off). My cut crease, tears, & lips are all using @nyxcosmetics glitters. For the red dots, I used @ofracosmetics liquid lipstick in the shade venice.
FIREBALL 🔥 I don’t think I’ve ever done a full out red lip on my page, what do you guys think?! Hmm ___ I used @buxomcosmetics NEW Shimmer Shock Lip Stick in the shade Fireball to create this look. I Wanted to switch it up a little and do some timeless glam, of course with the classic jcharles twist. 😂 You can find it @sephora. Tag a #buxombabe that could totally rock this color! #ad
