Luxury Makeup: THREE FAVES

IMG_3022

When it comes to luxury makeup, I’m extremely picky with deciding since I’ll be spending a pretty penny. Originally I went into Sephora knowing the exact products I wanted, and to my luck, they were sold out of both items, THE WORST. After an intense search party of maybe finding them, I left with three different products that I would of never picked out myself. One of the Cast Members (Sales Associates) helped me find some other options, and I have to say, I am quite happy with what I bought. By no means do you need to buy expensive makeup to look/feel beautiful, but for me, it’s a little splurge that I like to do once in a while.

BOBBI BROWN LIPSTICK: Sandwash Pink 

If you follow me on this blog, or know me in person, then you know my obsession with MAC’s lipstick in Faux. Well, Ladies and Gentlemen… I have a new favourite! This is the absolute PERFECT colour. It’s a nude, pinky-mauve, a your lip but better colour. It’s creamy, glides on and really does stay on way better then Faux. It complements my skin and really is such a beautiful colour. I HIGHLY recommend this lipstick if your trying to find an everyday colour that lasts and is easy to wear. If you want a more ash-pink tone lipstick then try out Bobbi Brown “Pale Pink”.

GIVENCHY LE PRISM: 83 PEACH PLUMETIS

Originally I went to Sephora because I wanted to buy Hourglass Ambient powder in Dim Light. After a sad let down of not having it, one of the girls showed me this and said that it was even better and gave a nice finish to the face. I love that it is a peach hue which really compliments me. It blurs the look of pores and is a beautiful finish to the face. I just mix all four colours together and lightly sweep it onto my face for a light soft peach glow. It keeps my makeup on longer and has the BEST smell to it. Givenchy, you may be expensive but I think that this brand is super under rated and needs to be mentioned more. Great packaging and presentation, I almost don’t want to touch it so I don’t ruin it!

GUERLAIN MASCARA: 01 NIOR

I’ve been on a hunt for a new mascara so when I was told about this I was hesitant because I’ve never heard any reviews on it. After using it, everyone needs to have this. If you like full, thick black lashes then this is your baby. It has the sleekest packaging and really builds up volume and creates fake looking lashes. I love using this with a heavier eye and really layer it up so that it looks dramatic. A tip for anyone using mascara, use more then one coat to really see results. The first coat doesn’t do justice to the mascara, you need to build it up to see what it’s made out of!

Favourite Five: BLUSH

IMG_2958

I’ve decided I’m going to start a new series called “Favourite Five” every month on my blog. I will be focusing on 1 category of makeup and my 5 favourite brands of the product. Today’s post is focusing on BLUSH. I used to hate wearing blush because I was pretty rosy as it is. With growing up, my skin has lost some colour and I feel naked without wearing blush. These five blushes below are my MUST HAVES. I seriously love all of them. I hope it helps you guys out if your looking for a new blush.

ENJOY

xoxo

MAC “WELL DRESSED”

This blush is the perfect pink. It’s light, sheer and gives you a feminine glow. It is a satin blush and seriously blends into the skin like butter. I love using this blush on a bride because it brightens the face and truly makes you look like a “blushing bride”. It’s a true light pink and looks great on lots of skin types.

MAC “DESERT ROSE”

This is the colour I recommend to everyone if they haven’t purchased a MAC blush before. It is amazing. The darker rose hues in it are so beautiful and really give you a flush of colour. It is a matte finish but is still very easy to blend and looks great on ALL skin types. It also is very flattering on mature skin since there is no shimmer or sparkle.

MAC “MARGIN”

I FREAKING LOVE THIS BLUSH. It is like a bronzer, highlighter and blush all in one. It is absolutely stunning on the skin and has a frost/sheen finish. It is my GO TO in the summer. You don’t need to use a bronzer with this since it adds darkness to your cheeks with a rosy hue.

NARS “SIN”

Sin has been my ride or die at the moment. I’m super into mauve’s and this blush is perfection. It has purple undertones but a gold sheen to it. It is stunning on an olive skin tone but looks great on all. I have been using this every day since I got it. Also, with NARS blushes they are HIGHLY pigmented, so a little goes a long way.

L’OREAL TRUE MATCH “INNOCENT FLUSH”

This peachy pink blush is beautiful on people with fair skin, blue eyes and blonde hair. It’s brightening and has a light sheen to it. It’s a very easy blush to wear and looks awesome all year round. I love using this to blend my eyeshadows in the crease to bring the look together. Also, it’s super affordable which is a plus!

PROM: 3 DIFFERENT LOOKS

It’s almost that time of year again! Finally getting to the end of your four year high school experience and to celebrate, you will be going to PROM! My best friend Erica helped me out with these photos since she’s absolutely beautiful. We created THREE different looks you can wear to your prom, a formal or even a banquet. From whimsical and romantic to smoldering and sexy, hopefully these looks are helpful for you to decide what you want to rock.

LOOK #1

CLASSY LADY

This look is very “Old Hollywood” with a classic twist. Parting your hair to the side with soft waves really makes the look elegant. For makeup, a strong contour and red lip are the perfect combo.

Dress: MACY’s

Shoes: STEVE MADDEN

Clutch: VINTAGE

EARRINGS: HOUSE OF MODA

LOOK #2

LOVE STRUCK

This look is very innocent and whimsical. A loose/messy up-do is the way to go. If you want to add a little drama then put in a fun headband to amp it up. A soft bronze to the face and a pale pink lipstick will give you that youthful glow.

DRESS: THRIFTED

SHOES: MICHAEL KORS

HEADBAND: FOREVER 21

LOOK #3

LADY IN RED

I love this look because it’s fun, glamourous and sexy. Tossled beach waves will give you that “I woke up like this” vibe. A soft smokey eye and a nude lip looks great against a bold red dress and gives you that Bridgette Bardot look.
