New Blog Look & Step by Step Eye!

Hey Guys! 

I am so excited to release my new blog colour scheme! I wanted to lighten things up a bit and give you guys a new pretty place to come and look at my portfolio, tutorials, product reviews, step by step looks and more :) I hope you like it! 

I would like to thank my good friend Edmond Huszar/Overwerk for always creating amazing new looks for my blog. If you have been following me for a while you have probably seen a few different looks and he as created ALL of them! He is so talented, and an amazing artist and musician - check out his work through the links above!  

With that being said I also wanted to post a new step by step tutorial with the release of the new blog look. This is the eye look that I am wearing in my new pictures found under the Brittany section as well as all my new display pictures for Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter

Here is the look... 

Here is the steps on how to create this eye look yourself! 

 

1. Start with a clean freshly primed eye lid. 

2. Apply a pink-gold shadow into the inner corner of the eye blending down around the tear duct. I used a Make Up For Ever Star Powder. 

3. Then apply African Violet by Laura Mercier (gold-purple hue) all over the lid avoiding the pink-gold and just softly blending into it. 

4. Apply a brow highlight of your choice, I used something with a pink iridescence which happens to be discontinued :( 

5. Apply Blackberry and Sketch by MAC into the outer corner. 

6. Deepen the very center of the crease with a matte black shadow, I used Carbon by MAC. Use a smaller brush to make sure you are just applying product to the very center of the crease. 

7. Apply liquid liner and false lashes! 

8. Apply Eye Bright by Benefit along the lower water line and smudge into the lashes. 

There you have it! Super easy and very pretty :) 

Hope you guys enjoyed that post as well as the new blog look! I would love to hear your feed back in the comments below or as always, feel free to contact me to book me for your next event or to simply ask a question!

Hey Guys! 

Here is another step by step for you! This is one of my fav looks :) If your interested in looking through other step by step looks I've created head to the search engine and type in step by step. Golden, pink and cranberry hues on the eyes - complementing a cranberry/sangria blush, golden highlight and soft pink lips! Here is the look: 

Here are the steps to recreate this look yourself! 

1. As always, start with a clean primed eye lid! 

2. Apply a gold/pink pigment all over the lid. I used one from Makeup For Ever, Pink Gold 916. 

3. Apply a cranberry eyeshadow in the outer crease. I used "cranberry" by MAC. 

4. Apply the cranberry shade in the inner corner and inner crease blending into the upper crease to meet the colour in the outer corner. 

5. Apply a brow highlight, I used just a matte cream colour as the other two lid colours I used were a shimmer finish I don't want my whole eye to look shimmery. 

6. Apply the same gold/pink pigment along the lower lash line just in the centre, mirroring the upper lid. 

7. Apply the cranberry shade along the lower lash line just in the inner and outer corners, mirroring the upper lid. 

8. Apply lashes and liquid liner and you're set!

Pinterest Eye Look Step-by-Step #2

Hey Guys! 

So here is another eye look I found on Pinterest and decided to recreate it! Now again, same as last pinterest eye post, keep in mind the pinterest photo is airbrushed almost to the point of looking animated and taken with a professional camera. Where my look is not edited at all and taken with my iPhone :)

Here is the Pinterest look...

 

Here is my take on the look... 

Step by step on how to create the look...

1. In order to make bright colours pop I always apply a white cream shadow/liner base. This helps the colours look more true and also acts as a primer. 

2. Apply an orange on the inner corner and a bright pink on the outer corner (or any colour you would like!) 

3. After softening/blending the orange and the pink just so they are barely touching, trace your crease with a small stiff brush. This doesn't have to look perfect as you will be blending it out. Use brown or black or a dark colour of your choosing! 

4. Use a smudge brush to soften the cut crease even further. Follow up with a fluffier blending brush and a lighter brown (or lighter hue of whatever colour you decided to cut your crease with). 

5. Apply a brow highlight and soften the crease colour into the highlight. 

6. Apply liquid liner and mascara and smudge some black shadow along the lower lash line blending into the wing. Apply a white eye liner to the inner rim! 

What a fun look! Have some free time? Try it out yourself! If you don't try you will never know if you can do it! It's much easier then it looks, trust me! Have a great day guys! 

Product 411 - Fakeup

Hey Guys! 

Haven't done one of these in a while eh!? I used to do product 411's a lot more and I'm going to start them up again! Today's Product 411 is on the new-ish Benefit Concealer "Fakeup." There are a few reasons I decided to blog about this product, first off I personally love it and it's the concealer I've been waiting for my whole life. Secondly, I have been getting a lot of requests lately asking me about pictures I post of clients, either before and after's or just "looks" and how I achieve that "lightness through the t-zone". Well here goes... 

What I love about this product: 

- so hydrating for the under eye area

- never looks cakey or dry 

- doesn't draw attention to fine lines and wrinkles 

- looks super natural 

- medium coverage 

- I use the "light" shade on practically EVERYONE 

- can be used to highlight when contouring 

- easy applicator stick 

- great for adding hydration and coverage to a dry flakey pimple 

- great for dry under eyes that tend to look cakey with most concealers 

A closer look at the product... 

The style of applicator/packaging is like a lipstick style, it rolls up and rolls down. That ring you see around the outside of the product is almost like a moisturizer, then inside is where the concealer is. As you apply it they mix together creating an amazingly hydrated and creamy application. 

Below is a picture of one of my clients. I have drawn in where and how I apply the product. Using small strokes I apply the product in V shapes with three lines...

I apply this product after I've applied foundation. Using a small concealer buffing brush I then use small circular motions and smooth the product into the skin blending it into the foundation for a natural finish! All in all I LOVE this product and highly recommend it!

Vacation Must-Haves

Hey Guys!

We just got back from Cuba yesterday and had a fabulous time! Sometimes packing can be a little stressful for people "What will I need?" "Will I like this on once I get there?" "Have I packed enough?" the list of questions goes on and on. These are three things I ask myself while packing clothes... 

1. Have I worn this in the last two months?   

Because if you haven't, it's likely that you wont wear it on vacation.

2. Is it comfortable? 

To me, comfort is extremely important. Especially on vacation, the worst is bringing a bunch of items that you actually find more trouble then they're worth. Usually comfort has a lot to do with fit. If something fits  well its usually very comfortable if it's too big here or too small there you may fidget with it, which is never comfortable.

3. How many ways can I wear this?

It's important to pack items that can be worn all together. I like to pack things that I know I can wear a couple times in different ways. Creating a new look each time. 

Now for some of my must-have travel items... 

Tide Travel Sink Packets 

As I mentioned earlier, I like to make sure I'm able to wear one item with a few different outfits. Now you may not have to wash the item after wearing it depending, but just incase of a spill or excessive sweating its nice to have to option to do a quick hand wash if need be. I swear by these little guys, you just fill up the sink or bath with warm water and do a quick hand wash of a couple items, rinse and hang to dry. 

 

Tide to-go Stick

Tide to-go sticks are a life saver! I always have one in my purse even when I'm not traveling. But they are especially essential when traveling. During a long day of eating meals on the go a little stain or spill is somewhat bound to happen. I absolutely hate walking around with a stain on my clothes so it's great having one of these on hand for a quick fix!

 

Beautifying Oil

I'm a moisturizing freak. Especially when I'm vacationing some where sunny. After a long day in the sun all I want to do is shower and drench myself in oil or moisture from head to toe. This Beautifying Oil from the Body Shop is SO convient and amazing. It can be used on your hair, body and face eliminating the need to pack three separate items! It comes in many different classic Body Shop scents. With a very affordable price point of $14 CAN for one bottle!

 

Jewellery Bag

I love to accessorize so cutting back on the jewellery I pack isn't really an option. But what is an option is packing it in a way that saves a ton of space and is super convient to sift through once you unpack. I have an amazing one from Stella and Dot that I received as a hostess gift for having a party. They sell a ton of great options, I love the Multicoloured Striped Jewellery Roll...

 

  

 

Manicure Set

If you are like me, before I go away I usually get a manicure and pedicure to ensure long lasting groomed nails. But the worst thing is getting a hang nail, breaking a nail, chipping a nail and having nothing to fix it with! So I always bring a little travel manicure set as well as a back of polish (either the colour that your nails are painted or one close to it, to fill chips or repaint if needed). Ton's of options for sets, check out some Sephora offers here.

 

Now, when it comes to makeup - some may be shocked by this - but I pack extremely light and only bring a few key items. This list only pertains to tropical trips/some where warm and relaxing. Where I know wearing a lot of makeup is just not what I want to do. Now if this was a trip to NYC or Boston, completely different story! I'd probably pack my whole kit ;) 

These are the items I pack, click on each to see some of my favourites! 

Tinted Moisturizer

Bronzer

Bronzy brown cream eye shadow (or a colour that suits you well)  

Blush 

Blush/Bronzer Brush 

Eye brow powder/brush to apply it 

Cream Highlighter 

Mascara/Liquid Liner 

...That's it! 

Hope this helped you guys out and maybe gave you some ideas on what to pack for your next vacay! Happy long weekend my lovlies :) Thanks for reading! 

Girlie Bridesmaid Eye Look Step-by-Step

Hey Guys! 

With wedding season swinging into full gear I thought I'd do a wedding inspired look today. This look is great for any occasion but it is especially girlie and elegant and perfect for a bridesmaid or even a bride! 

Here goes... 

 

1. Apply a rose pink matte shadow all over the primed lid. Here I used Makeup For Ever Eye Shadow in "Cotton Candy" #88.

 2. Apply a light brown matte shadow into the crease and blend. Here I used Laura Mercier Eye Colour in "Cafe Au Lait."

3. Apply a matte brow highlight onto the brow bone just under the eyebrow and blend out. Here I used Laura Mercier Eye Shadow in "Vanilla Nuts." 

4. Take some Glitter Glue and apply a little bit of loose sparkles to the centre of the lid. (This glitter I used is unfortunately discontinued but easy to find one like it - it's white with pink and gold). 

5. Blend out the edges of the glitter with a pinky gold shadow to match. This will help the glitter look faded into the pink. I used "Scratch" by Urban Decay which is a Rose Gold Shimmer. 

6. Apply liquid liner and lashes and then apply a white eye liner to the water line. I used Le Crayon Khol by Lancome in "Blanc" - any white liner will do. Be sure not to smudge this into the lash line as that can look messy, especially for the effect we're going for (clean and crisp). 

7. Take a sharp flat liner brush and apply a dark brown shadow just below the lash line. Approach the application from underneath the lower lash eyelashes. This will help the eye's appear very large. Filling in the water line with white and creating a new lash line just below your natural line will make the eyes appear wider. 

8. Apply mascara to the lower lashes.

Ta-dah! Pair with a peachy pink lip stick and there you have it, fresh faced, girlie and glowing! 

 

 

Hope that helps some of you out and have an amazing rest of your week! 

 

Teal Eye Look Step-by-Step

Hey Guys! 

Thought I'd do something a little more extravagant today! With proms coming up and all sorts of reasons to glam up I thought I'd share something different! My mom got me all these amazing beautiful pigments from MAC for Christmas from their limited edition Guilty Passions set. There were four in the set and they are "Brilliantly Cool Crushed Metallic Pigments" - I used "Spruced" for this look. 

Here is the look and step by step instructions! 

1. Apply a bright coloured pigment to the center of the eye lid using your finger or a dense flat brush. 

2. Apply a dark or black shadow to the outer and inner corners in a V shape (doesn't have to be perfect). 

3. Soften and blend with a blending brush. Take your time and blend carefully as not to overlap the pigment too much. 

4. Apply a white liner to really define the brown right along the edge of the brow. 

5. Blend out the white liner then apply a warmer tone highlight to blend that into the crease. I used "Motif" by MAC - it is gold with a purple iridescent. I also applied "Shroom" by MAC directly over top of the white liner to make it pop and add a satin finish.  

6. Apply the same bright pigment you used and apply it to the center of the lower lash line. Mimic what you did on top by applying black to the inner and outer corners of the lower lash line. Apply your liquid liner and lashes and done!

**Extra Step** You can stop there or continue on by dragging the black shadow out and down to mimic the shape of the upper lid. Blend it down and fill it with white liner wings or even just a white eye shadow softly blending outwards. 

Here is a close up...

Hope you guys enjoyed! Have a wonderful rest of your week! oXo

Gradient Smokey Eye Step-by-Step

Hey Guys! 

Here is another step-by-step how to eye look! This one is a gradient smokey eye. I used four distinct different colours but by blending properly they all look cohesive. Try this look with any colours you want! 

1. Pack a black shadow onto the eyelid using a stiff flat brush. 

2. Blend out the edge of the shadow into the crease to soften using a blending brush and a little more black shadow. 

3. Use the same blending brush to apply another colour into the crease. I used a cranberry shade. 

4. Apply a brighter colour very softly onto the edge of the last colour applied with a blending brush. I used a bright orange. Using a bright colour will really add that faded look but wont look nearly as bright on. 

5. Apply a complimenting colour to the crease colour in the corner of the eye/tear duct area. I used a lavender to compliment the cranberry. 

6. Apply a brown highlight and then blend out. 

7. You can choose to leave out this step for a softer look. I took a makeup wipe and carved a clean angle at the edge of my shadow application. 

8. Apply liquid liner, mascara and lashes and ta-dah! The completed look :) 

** Throughout the steps you may have to go back and reapply more of a certain colour if you have lost some of it while applying another colour. For example, at the end, I went back and packed on more black shadow onto the lid to bring the boldness back. 

Here is a closer look at the products I used: 

1. Korres - Lavender (discontinued) 

2. MAC - Carbon 

3. Lise Watier - Cranberry (discontinued) 

4. Stila - Mimosa 

5. Smashbox - Artificial Light Luminizing Powder (discontinued) 

Sorry so many things are discontinued! But it is super easy to find very similar colours from other brands or even the same brand! 

Here is the finished eye:

Flawless Complexion

Hey Guys! 

I have had a few requests about doing a flawless foundation step-by-step so here it is, honouring your inquires! In the past I posted a few youtube videos and I did do one on My Foundation Routine, which by the way is constantly changing! As for my youtube videos I don't know if I plan on getting back into posting them or not. I enjoying blogging and sharing with you guys but I don't know if the youtube thing is for me. When it comes to this industry you have to choose your distinct path. I think doing youtube videos may be taking me in too many different directions. I would like to stay more streamlined in my business as a free-lance artist that has an active social media presence. I think being a youtube makeup artist is a whole other ball game! We will see though, maybe down the road I might pick them up again.  

In this post, I'm going to share more of my approach to achieving a flawless complexion on myself as well as my clients. A basic guide for what goes threw my mind when sitting down with a client or at my makeup mirror. Again, every makeup artist is different and this just happens to be my method! In artistic industries like this one, it's important to have your own flare and uniqueness but it's also about being constantly inspired by others. 

Step One (and personally the most important step): Skin Care 

It is crucial to take care of your skin. This will affect how makeup looks on the skin, how long it lasts and how effective it will be. The three key steps are: 

1. Cleanse 

2. Exfoliate (whether you use a daily exfoliator that doubles as a cleanser or an exfoliator only to be used 2-3 times a week or as directed) 

3. Hydrate

Completing these three steps daily is important to being able to achieve a flawless complexion. Personally I do my cleansing and exfoliating at night and in the morning I use a water cleanser as not to over cleanse/dry out the skin. 

I could do a whole other post on skin care in greater detail if you guys would like, but this is the basic information!

Step Two: Creating an Ideal Canvas

With your already clean, moisturized skin you want to apply a base/primer. To me, a base does not have to be a primer it can be many other things. Choose a base that works for your skin, as everyone is different. You can also choose a base based on the look you are trying to achieve. For example, I like to use an illuminating tinted moisturizer as my base. This will create a glow from underneath your foundation. Another option is a self-tanner or a bronzing gel to give an added glow and deepen your complexion (be sure to apply all the way down your neck). You could also use a BB Cream for added coverage or an oil controlling primer if you struggle with oily skin. I apply my base with the same brush I use to apply my foundation but feel free to use something else. 

Here is step two, I've just applied my Laura Mercier Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer all over.

 

Step Three: Foundation Application

 Personally, I like to use a kabuki brush or a buffing brush to apply the foundation. I focus my application in the centre of my face blending outward. As most problem areas tend to be in the centre (large pores, spots etc). First off I have applied my foundation where I wish to focus it and in the second shot I have used my kabuki brush to blend it out. Today I am using Make Up For Ever HD Foundation in #155. You will notice it has a bit of a yellow undertone as I am trying to correct the natural redness in my skin. 

 

Step Four: Conceal/Highlight

 I choose to do my concealing and some of my highlighting in this next step. First off I conceal any spots or scars with a concealer that matches my complexion. In the next picture I am applying a concealer that is slightly lighter under my eyes and anywhere else I would like to lighten/highlight. Today I am using Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer in Medium as my spot concealer and Benefit Fake Up in Light as my under eye/highlight. 

 

Step Five: Set

Before I go any further I set what I have done with a light dusting of powder. Today I used Mac Mineralize Skin Finish Natural in Medium Plus. You will notice shine is reduced and everything looks a little more matte. 

 

Step Six: Bronzer Blush and Highlight

I have done some posts on this in the past and here is a diagram I have created to help you with your application.  

Bronzers I love: 

Chocolate Soleil by Too Faced 

Hourglass Waterproof Bronzer Superficial

Tarte Matte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Bronzer

Eye Colour Part I: Hazel Eyes

Hey Guys!

This weekend I'm going to do a series of posts about shadows for different eye colours. I'm not one to say blue eye's must wear these colours and green eye's must wear another colour. I do however believe that there are certain colours that help eye colours pop. That being said this list of colours can be endless! 

Here is a very general rule of thumb. The two colours opposite each other on the colour wheel help accentuate each other. I tend to group the colours in two's or three's. For example, Yellow, Yellow-Green and Green are accentuate by Red, Red-Violet and Violet. This is a tool you can use to help you find colour families that will suit you best! 

 

I have hazel eye's so I did this look on myself. Tomorrow I will be posting a how-to on blue eye's! Hazel and green eyes can be in the same family depending on how light of a green, if you have a super light green eyes you may fall under the blue eye look as well (both would be flattering). My eye's are green somedays, yellow another and brown the next. Today they are a little bit of everything so this look could not only suit hazel and green but also brown! See what I mean by the possibilities are endless!? So to sum up this look could technically suit hazel, brown and green all very nicely. 

 

1.Press on a purple shade with a dense flat brush (to help avoid fallout) on to the lid. I used Hepcat by MAC.

2. Apply the same purple shade along the lower lash line using a smudging brush or a liner brush. 

3. Soften edges all around the eye using a blending brush. 

4. Use same blending brush to apply a darker plum colour onto the outer corner of the eye lid. I used Sketch by MAC. 

5. Apply the same dark plum shade along the lower lash line. 

6. Apply a brow highlight. I used a white with pink iridescent to help accentuate the purple tones in the look. 

7. Apply eye liner, mascara and lashes and there you have it! 

Here are the three colours I used to do this look, see if they match something you have in your makeup bag! 

From Left: Second most used shade in palette (Smashbox discontinued), Hepcat by MAC , Sketch by MAC

Hope this helped you guys out and like I said, this look can be flattering on most all eye colours it's just especially nice on hazel eyes!

Have a wonderful long weekend! oXo

This giveaway will be running from today, Wednesday March 27th, 2013 to Saturday April 27th, 2013!

Let's take a closer look...

1. Sheer light-weight beige scarf with coral accents, a value of $16.99 from Target. I love a sheer scarf for spring, perfect way to accessorize an outfit without being to warm. This scarf is large enough that it could also double as a beach wrap in the summer! 

2. Sephora False Lashes in Celebrity with a value of $12.00. These are my favourite lashes from the Sephora collection. They give a nice amount of volume and length for everyday wear or a night out! I've worn them in a few of the looks I've posted previously :) 

3. Cake Milk Made Velveteen Hand Cream with a value of $18.00. With the changing of seasons our skin tends to get very dry. With this luscious, vitamin rich formula... dry hands be gone! Another great quality about this hand cream is it's lightweight, non-greasy, fast absorbing finish. Great for someone busy and on the go! 

4. My ALL-TIME FAVOURITE LIQUID LINER! This is the liner I've been using for ages, it's from Maybelline called Line Stiletto. It's what I use on all my looks I've posted. I get it in blackest-black and depending on when you buy it (shoppers always has different sales going on) it's value is about $10.99

5. Blinc mascara can be found at Sephora, this particular one is the beauty-to-go size (4g). Which is exactly half the amount of the full size. This is valued at about $15.00. "Blinc mascara forms tiny water-resistant "tubes" around lashes that cannot run smudge, clump or flake and slide off with a combination of water and gentle pressure" - a unique twist on mascara! 

6. Essie Nail Lacquer in "bond with whomever" - a pastel purple lilacy shade which makes for a beautiful spring nail colour! I purchased this product for $8.99 at Target but you can also find Essie at Shoppers Drug Mart, Trade Secrets etc. 

7. Three mini Bath and Body Works candles in fresh spring scents, Pineapple Orchid, Cherry Blossom and Garden Freesia. I am in love with candles and especially these three scents for spring! Value of $10.00
