This weekend I worked with the incredible celebrity make up artist AJ Crimson and his makeup team at LeToya Luckett’s Lady L Boutique in the Houston Galleria Mall. We were a part of the Glam Slam Beauty Suite event that allowed clients to get a total makeover in one location. Teams were led by celebrity Hairstylist Kiyah Wright, Celebrity Lash Guru Jamaal Buster, and Celebrity Manicurists Skyye.

Words can’t express how grateful I was that AJ Crimson selected me to be a part of his makeup team. This experience was spectacular! I was able to become more familiar with his Kissable Couture Lip Colors. I was introduced to his pressed powders. I also got to really work with the AJ Crimson Creme Foundations (which I reviewed a couple months ago here). We provided makeovers Fri-Sun.

I’m holding the brand new AJ Crimson CCC palette. It’s a convenient compact with all 8 shades of his Creme Foundation. I’d highly recommend it for makeup artist who want great foundation in a condensed form. I’d also recommend it for makeup lovers who want to have versatility with creating looks. You can do your overall skin color, highlight, contour, add cheek color, do lips, etc… So many options with this product.
Here are the Kissable Couture Lip Colors and AJ Crimson Creme Foundations and Pressed Powders. I really, really like his lip colors. They range from sheer glosses to liquid lipsticks. They all feel very comfortable on your lips without being too sticky or tacky. My favorite is Fantasies, which I purchased 2 tubes at The Makeup Show Orlando. It’s a beautiful red…but they’re currently out of stock so we didn’t use it for the event. Here is Aj doing a lip demo
Above I’m giving one of my clients a Purple Lip Demo using AJ Crimson Kissable Couture Limited Edition Allstar Weekend Purple with the regular Kissable Couture lipgloss in Tyler applied in the middle for an extra pop.
This is my client who was in the chair in the above picture. She posted this on her instagram. I just love seeing my clients happy with their makeovers.

I learned a new technique from Jamaal and his team this weekend. Instead of waving the lashes back and forth while you’re waiting for the glue to get tacky, just use a small hand held fan to quickly dry the glue. He’s a genius! I’ve been doing makeup for 6yrs now, this has never crossed my mind. Totally going to get a little fan for my kit now.
