FOTD - Shimmer Shimmer

Hello Gals!

Today's shimmery FOTD is created using the strobing technique. This trend is right up my alley as I love shimmer and sparkles.
 
For those of you who are not quite familiar with the strobing trend, it is a  makeup technique that defines and enhances your features by adding light with shimmer powders, liquids or creams...quite the opposite of contouring and far less complicated.  Contouring is all about defining and sculpting your features by using darker powders, bonzers or cream.

On to my look....

My look is all about the shimmer. I may have gone overboard with my highlighter, but what can be expected from a gal who loves sparkles! You don't have to be as heavy handed as I have been, you can  definitely tone it down by using  less highlighter.

Mascara Wand 101

Hello Gals,

Today's topic is mascara wands. Have you ever been stumped by which wand is right for you? I know I have. With so many brands of mascara on the beauty market claiming that their formula is better, choosing a mascara can be a little overwhelming. 
Over the years, I have learned that it is actually the brush more so than the formula that has the impact on the lashes. It all depends on the effect that you desire. So I will break down the most common brush types and their effects.

FOTD - Peachy Vibes

Hiya Gals!

Recently I have been fascinated by peachy hues on the lips. Peach is such a versatile shade as it goes with just about any eyeshadow combination. The quality that I like most about peach shades is that they add such life to the complexion.

This look was on my instagram a couple of days and it features one of our new Prism Liquid Lipsticks in "Wish",Prism Sassy Lids Eyeshadow Palettes in "Espresso Yourself" and "Pink Champagne" I finished off this look with my all time favourite Nars blush highlighter in "Albatross"



On to the look....

Are you into peachy tones?

Before and After - Sarah

Hello Gals!

Today I have a sultry coppery bronze smokey eye look for you. Meet Sarah, Sarah has beautiful skin that has a natural healthy glow even without makeup...I almost felt guilty for applying foundation :) 

This coppery look is suitable for almost any occasion, and compliments all skin tones.  The neutral peachy lip really pulls this look together without up staging the dramatic eye makeup.
