Day 3 of L’Oreal Fashion Week – Joeffer Caoc

The hair and makeup for Joeffer Caoc was very simple because the clothes were simple and in very bright colours. You can see that all they did was apply some eyeliner using some dark eyeshadow and smudged it with a brush so that it looked clean and soft. The lips were kept very neutral. Once […]

Day 3 of L’Oreal Fashion Week – Izzy Camilleri

Izzy Camilleri was another amazing show. The clothes were so beautiful and dramatic and Izzy went for a vampish futuristic look. First Eddie put black eyeshadow on all the models and then went over it with black liquid liner so that it matched the patent leather wings that were attached to the outside of the […]

Day 2 of L’Oreal Fashion Week

Day 2 at L’Oreal Fashion Week was hectic – 8 shows and whole lot of running around. I did, of course, take pictures of all the makeup looks before the models went on the runway. I was also able to find out what products the makeup artists were using to achieve the amazing looks. You’ll […]

L’Oreal Telescopic Mascara

Imagine my surprise upon learning that L’Oreal’s Telescopic Mascara is available in Canada before it’s available in the US – though I suspect that it will be launched there soon enough. Of course, I had to try the mascara for myself. The wand of Telescopic is similar to the wand of Lancome’s Fatale – the […]

Rainy Day Mascara

The problem with some waterproof mascaras is that they don’t live up to the quality of their regular counterparts. They either clump or don’t perform at all. Still, good waterproof mascaras do exist and it’s important to have one at this time of year since it’s going to be snowing outside! As I walk through […]

There are two problems that I run into when I’m after voluminous lashes – either the mascara doesn’t perform, or in order to get any real volume you need lots of coats, and when you apply many coats of the mascara you run the risk of some major clumping. Sure, you can tell that I’m […]

They Call it Potion Because It’s Magical

I first tried Urban Decay’s Primer Potion (eye shadow primer) when I was at the airport. I figured that if it could hold up for an 8 hour flight, then it would be good for everyday too. Well it didn’t let me down. I had often suffered from creasing eye shadow, especially on long days, […]

Foundation Trick

A little while ago, I had a tv appearance and had my makeup done by a makeup artist hired by the studio. Now, I don’t know her name but she had worked on movies and tv shows before, but she was still relatively young. The studio where the TV show was being shot preferred the […]

Moonbeam Reflective Eyeliner

Though I love makeup, it’s rare for me to find something that has the “wow effect”. The “wow effect” is when I try something on and I say (or think) “Wow! That looks really good on me!” Benefit’s Dallas Blush had that effect, and so does this: Prescriptives Moonbeam Reflective Eyeliner in Beaming Brown. I […]

Mascara Tubes

I am, of course, referring to those things in which mascara is sold when I say “mascara tubes”. As I think about all the mascaras out there that I want to try, (is it just me or is there a new one about once a month?) I realized that mascara tubes really are too big. […]
