The Colours of Autumn

Hello Again Beautiful People!

Autumn is such an amazing season, and I have been out and about enjoying the splendor of the stunning colours of nature. I have been walking with my camera through High Park, Humber Bay Park, as well as the beautiful countryside north of Toronto, shooting some of the majestic colours mother nature showed off.  Walk with me and enjoy “The Colours of Autumn” created by nature, as well as my attempt to mimic the colours through my artistic makeup application.

Hello Beautiful People!

We were all born with different facial features, which are unique and intriguing. The Eyes are one of our beauty characteristic having distinctive shapes and sizes, which in most cases, require corrective makeup techniques for good makeup results. Do you know the shape of your  eyes? Take a look at the chart below to identify your eye shape.

I have recently worked with model Vrinda Asrani, who has deep set eyes; a person with deep set eyes have small eye lids, the brow bone comes out further, and the eyes are deep in the socket. I shaded Vrinda’s lids with a light colour which had a bit of shimmer, placing a deeper colour just above the socket blending up and out, while using a matte flush shade on the brow bone. The eyeliner on the top lid should be thin, with more colour deposit to the bottom of the eyes for a gorgeous finish.

Send me a quick note if you have questions about the best makeup techniques for your eye shape; I want your eyes to say ….“Eye” Can See You Looking!

My 2 Nude Summer Delight

Hello Again Beautiful People!
We have two days until the official start of summer and I think it is going to be hot, hot and sizzling! So, during the muggy, sticky days of summer, when I want to look natural, fresh, light and radiant, I am going to reach for two lipsticks I recently purchased from the MAC store, Sherway Gardens Mall, in Toronto, named Taupe and Twig. The lipsticks are priced CAD $19.

I am a NW 45 (MAC ref.) and both lipsticks compliment my skin tone very well, they give me that perfect nude look I desire. Taupe is a matte lipstick and I love lipsticks with a matte finish! Taupe is super creamy with a flushed brown colour, this is perfect for everyday wear. Twig is a satin finish lipstick, which means it does not have an intense glossy finish but strikes a perfect balance of smooth and shine. Twig is a lovely soft, gentle brownish-pink colour, I am certain you will adore this lipstick. I always use MAC Prep + Prime Lip before applying my lipstick for added lip moisture, smoothness and for the longevity it provides.
I will post pictures of me wearing Taupe and Twig lipsticks shortly, until then, have a fantastic summer and stay stunning, Beautiful People!  Thank you kindly for your continued support for the blog, it means so much.
