No fuss….just clean and simple

Hello Beautiful People!

I like the two for one coverage I get when I apply the MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation, in addition to the impressive matte finish that creates an attractive, flawless face. MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation contains both silica – which absorbs the oils, and talc which absorbs the moisture (and prevents caking).  My face maintains a fresh, clean, vibrant and flawless look throughout the day, and lasts at least eight hours before a touch up is necessary. This is definitely a product I would recommend for your beauty bag!

I use the latex sponge which comes in the packaging; it is soft and flexible and can pick up a generous amount of product with one swipe. I also use my MAC brush #134, to apply the Studio Fix when I want a sparse amount of product on my brush for a natural, radiant, flawless finish.  I was so pleased with the results of the MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation – NW45 I was wearing, as it complimented my neutral, understated makeup… and kept it on point!

 On Saturday my husband and I went out for a date night; it was such a beautiful evening! The food was extraordinary, and the service was impeccable. The Italian restaurant is tucked away by the harbor side, and is possibly one of the best kept secrets in this quaint town 60 minutes east of Toronto.

It’s been a brutal winter here in Canada and just the thought of spring evokes nostalgia for radiance, vividness, brilliance and warmth, which are the colour trends for Spring/Summer 2014 – how cool is that?!

Do you want to rock these colours like a diva on the catwalk? Well, to do so, you need to know what your seasonal colour is.  Seasonal colours pinpoint the perfect makeup colours to compliment your eye, skin and hair colour.  You are either a winter, spring, summer or fall/autumn woman. I am a winter woman.
