I wanted to share a quick makeup tutorial of a look I created when we went to the Garrison in Toronto to watch my friend’s band perform.
I recently picked up a lot new makeup at yet another sale. I’ll be posting a complete haul in the next few days, but one of my new purchases included a fantastic gold eye shadow by L’Oreal. In fact I went a bit buck wild when it came to eye shadows, and that’s what this look is revolved around. Read more
Hi Lovelies!! Here are some of my fave products right now. Some I mentioned before others I didn’t but I’m really enjoying all of these so this is my January summary to make sure we’re all looking good and feeling good despite this crazy weather.
Every time I see this awesome “Volcanic” lipstick by L’Oreal in my makeup up stash I feel happy! I find red very dramatic but this orange-y shade just right. I like to use a brush and outline my lips using the same shade, and then fill in the rest. It stays on pretty well without budging, but if you drink or give someone a kiss it will transfer.
As you know I’m a fan of L’Oreal and their subsidiary brands. I absolutely love the L’Oreal voluminous mascara, and I’m very happy with their nail polishes, perfume and lipstick, so I figured I’d try something new made by the same awesome brand.
So there was a makeup sale in town and this happened:
I regret nothing! It was hosted by L’Oreal and the prices were second only to the selections. The cool thing was that not only were there amazing deals on L’Oreal products, but the sale featured L’Oreal’s other brands as well. For example, there was a pretty wide selection of perfumes and I was able to get the YSL Manifesto perfume I’ve had my eye on, for a fraction of the cost. Read more
This nail polish is so soft, yet it immediately gives your nails a more, no pun intended, polished look. This nail polish makes me feel more put together. Just like a simple pink gloss. And let me tell you that L’Oreal makes fantastic nail polishes. I have quite a few so I know! The brush is great, and makes for simple and neat application. The consistency of the nail polish is excellent because it stores well, and doesn’t clump up or dry up. It preserves well both in the bottle and on your nails!
In Toronto we have an annual event called “Salsa on St.Claire”. The event happens in July when it’s usually warm, if not hot! There is lots of dancing, and food vendors from all over Latin America. It’s a grand time. Yesterday, however, it got rained on! The event still went on, food was delicious, people were dancing, and it was lots of fun, but my straight hair didn’t survive it, and wearing flip flops was a bad decision too.
I knew my hair would be curly by the time i got home – it’s naturally curly and I had no product in it. My makeup on the other hand was flawless! After being in the rain all day I got home to realize nothing happened to my makeup – even my eye shadow was intact. So I felt it necessary to share what exactly I had used that morning and give a quick kudos to these makeup companies. Read more
