Pat McGrath Matte Trance

 

FullSizeRender

When I saw that Pat McGrath came out with this new collection, I just had to get my hands on the two colours that call my name: Red/Orange and bright pink!

These lipsticks have a very luxurious packaging.  The formula is unreal because it is everything you can want in a lipstick:  it’s hydrating, matte, very opaque and feel so lightweight on the lips.

In this picture, the top color is called Obsessed and the bottom is Full Panic.

Although these colours are easy to dupe, the formula is not! Have a great one! 🙂

Younique Makeup

As a makeup lover, when I had the opportunity to represent a makeup brand that is cruelty free, has amazing ingredients and great reviews, I had to accept it.

To be honest, not everything I tried worked for me having really sensitive skin.  A few skin care items did break me out.  Their makeup, however, is wonderful.  If you have seen those viral videos on Facebook with women having tattoos on their faces and sharpie drawing, and have them magically disappear with a foundation, I bet you they were using Younique. I posted a video on my channel showing those products in action.  You should give it a look! I also added some links on where you can purchase these items.

Anyways, let’s get to a more detailed review:

Younique Mineral Touch Liquid Foudnation:  Is this a miracle foundation?  I can’t really answer that since I don’t have great skin, but it’s not terrible either.  But what I can say is that it does a really good job giving me a flawless base.  What I don’t love about this foundation is how easy it transfers if you don’t set it.  Once you set it, it’s perfection.  It’s also best used with the brush it comes with.  I use the color Velour which is a light warm shade

Younique Mineral Touch Skin Perfecting Concealer:  Now this must be one of my favorite concealers ever (and I’ve tried tons of concealers).  If I don’t use it daily, it’s because I don’t want it to run out and I want to save it for a special occasions.  It’s not too thick, not too thin.  It has a perfect consistency, and blends out really well.  It has really high coverage and doesn’t crease.  What more could you want in a concealer?

Younique Touch and Behold Translucent Setting Powder: I don’t know how they do it, but this powder is traceless on the skin.  It airbrushes your face beautifully and makes your foundation last all day.  It is going to blow you away.  Trust me.

Dewy Skin|Simple Eyes

Hello again, welcome back!

In today’s post, I will be sharing some of my favorite products and tips to achieve Dewy Skin and Simple Eyes.  You can click on the video below to see me using these products in action.  Hope you enjoy it!

 

Alright…so to achieve this look, try the following tips 🙂

IMG_6748

  1. Tarte Illuminating Moisturizer: Noawadays, there are many illuminating moisturizers out there.  It all started with Mac Strobe Cream.  I have been trying this new one by Tarte and let me warn you, you cannot wear this alone because you will have flex of shimmers all over your face, but under BB cream or Foundation, it works wonders.

2. L’Oréal True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator: Wow, that’s a long name.  But try priming your face with liquid highlighters.  You can also mix them with your favorite foundation…and why not add them as a highlighter at the end.

3. Nars Liquid Bronzer in Laguna:  Avoid using powder products for dewy looks.  Try liquid bronzers instead…

4. Mac Cream Blush in Ladyblush:  cream blushes are a great option for natural dewy finishes.

10 makeup hacks that will help you get ready fast!

My first video tutorial is up, don’t forget to read the rest of the blog for some pictures and more tips 🙂

1.My first tip to speed your face routine is to choose a moisturizer that works as a primer at the same time.  I love the Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré or the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream.  They both hydrate really well and act as a great makeup base!

2. As for foundation, go for a cushion foundation or even a stick foundation…because they do the job much quicker than from a bottle foundation.

3. Use your foundation as a concealer to save you some extra time.

4.if  you don’t have time to go all the way to your bathroom sink and run the water on your beauty blender then ring it out, simply spray water on it from the comfort of your vanity.

5

5. Ok seriously now, why should you add contour, bronzer, blush and highlighter when you can do it all in one simple step. All you have got to do is chose a bronzer that is both glowy and has a pink undertone.  It works for me!  Any of the Milani Baked Bronzers are great for this tip.

6

6. For the eyes, I recommend to focus more on the lashes and less on the eyeshadows. Chose a volumizing mascara instead of a lengthening one. the lancome grandiose is great, I also like the younique 3D Fiber Mascara.

8

7. If you don’t like to leave your eye lids bare, you can run your bronzer through your crease or chose a liquid shadow than you can quickly blend out and you’re done! my go to are the Armani eye tints.

7

8. For eyebrows, instead of using a pencil which can take longer to draw hair like strokes with, chose a pomade that is not too creamy so it can be more forgiving. The Anastasia ones are great but not as forgiving as the benefit ka-brow.  That way, you can quickly draw your eyebrows on and it doesn’t have to be perfect.

9. For lips, a bold color is all you need to make it look like you have spent time on your makeup when you really didn’t.  Here I am wearing Too Faced Melted Matte in the color “it’s happening”.

10. My last tip is not related to makeup. But it saves me so much time in the morning.  Before you go to bed the night before, put your hair up in a top knot.  When you wake up in the morning, you will have beautiful waves in your hair, you won’t even need to touch up with an iron.

This palette has a very warm peachy/coral color (Fresh Melon), a very cool pink/purple color (Blackberry) and a peachy color called guava.  It is a very smooth/pigmented formula.  Each full size blush pan costs 3.99 USD

4.Beau Gachi “Concealer Brush”:

Because who has enough concealer brushes right?  I use them for everything now, not only for concealer (when my beauty blender is too big for my inner corners), but to clean up my brows, clean up my lips when I use a bold color, spot conceal and pack pigments on the eyelids… This is a high quality brush that costs 16 USD.

5. OFRA highlighter in “Bliss”:

img_5282

This is a bronze/gold/champagne highlighter that is extremely smooth and pigmented.  Use a light hand for a subtle glow!  This costs 12 USD.
