I would like to give you a quick review on my latest Hudabeauty purchase;
Faux Mink lashes; Farah #12
What I absolutely love about the faux mink lashes is that they are triple stacked for a more dramatic look.
The lashes also provide a 3D effect that creates a glamorous touch in combination with the extra length.
I must say that this is a musthave for lash lovers!
The Lip Strobe is a strobing mettalic gloss that comes in 12 shades.
You can use it alone or on top of any other lip color.
It provides volume and shimmer.
To create a more matte look you can use some blothing powder.
I took a trip to Barcelona last weekend and offcourse I had to pay a visit to my dearest SEPHORA.
Everytime I’am there I feel like a kid in a candystore! I transform into a make up monster and purchase everything I like.
For the Holiday season it’s even better to be there because a lot of brands have special Limited Edition Gift Sets.
One of my goodies is from Too Faced Cosmetics. Too Faced The Chocolate Shop is one of several gift sets and eyeshadow palettes that are part of the Too Faced Christmas in New York Holiday 2016 Collection.
Inside the package you will find mini sizes of my alltime favorite Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara, Shadow Insurance Eyeshadow Primer, and a Melted Chocolate Liquified Long Wear Lipstick in Chocolate Milkshake.
The set comes with a total of 21 eyeshadow shades. There’s also a highlighter a Chocolate Soleil Bronzer, and a Blush which.
From NARS I purchased some very nice matte lip shades. The application of a lipstick combined with the convenience of a pencil in a jumbo crayon design is just everything!!!
The colors are rich pigments and create a velvety matte finish. Use for lining, all-over lip color, or pairing with another lip product.
With all my Xmass goodies I’am all set and done for the Holidays!
Fashion trends are a big form of influance to the shape of the eyebrows. Currently BOLDBROWS (fully trimmed eyebrows) are a big hype in the magazines and social media.
Beautiful eyebrows automatically create a beautiful face expression. That’s why it’s very important to take good notice and care of the following steps when shaping your eyebrows;
-the shape of your face (round, oval, angular, long ..)
-the shape of your eyes
-the color and texture of your eyebrow makeup
By plucking you remove excess hair that grows just outside your desired shape. You can also trim your eyebrows to get a more forward form. But which product is suitable to create a nice and even colored AND natural looking eyebrow ..?
A brow powder?
As an makeup artist I am constantly testing various makeup products.
I’m a fan of a dark brown eyebrow pencil when it comes to coloring and browshaping. Until one of my clients offered me a sample of the Brow Extender from Divaderme Cosmetics.
Divaderme Brow Extender is composed of fibers made from natural ingredients and minerals. The fibers are semi permanent and waterproof. These fibers give your eyebrows the effects of more hair and volume. Besides the fact that the Brow Extender makes your eyebrows nice uniform color throughout and it is once again caring for the natural moisturizers that are incorporated into the fibers. What else do you want!
The Brow Extender applies on very easily. After you have fixed your eyebrows into shape, place the fibers gradually between your hairs.
I think it’s nice to finish with an eyebrow gel so my eyebrow shape is fly and fierce all day long.
This amazing product is hypoallergenic, it contains no parabens or gluten and it is not tested on animals.
The Brow Extender is available in the colors Espresso Brown Ash Blonde and Cappuccino Brown.
I’am so obsessed with my new Morphe 35N Matte Palette and I have been super excited to blog about it!
I have heard so many good things from other make up artists about these shadows that it was a must for me to purchase it for my professional make up kit.
In the fall and winter time, I’m really a big fan of matte eyeshadow and matte makeup looks. That was the main reason for me to seek for a palette with a range of color choice and variety of shades.
The brand Morphe Brushes has several eyeshadow palettes in theire range including a matte palette; Morphe Matte 35N.
The pallette consists of 35 colors ranging from nude earth tones to warm tones such as dark plums, red, and browns.
The shades are suitable for your everyday look or for a deep smokey eye. These shadows are so pigmented and easy to blend. I honestly did not expect such amazing pigmentation for this pricerange. For those that like a more intenser pigmented look I recommend to spray some fixation spray on your brush and blend it with your shade.
This palette is definitely a fall/winter make up MUST HAVE of the moment.
Through my work as a sales consultant and makeup artist , I am closely involved in the developments of the beauty industry.
However , I came to the conclusion that as a woman from an ethnic minority I do not always recognize myself in the market segmentation of various brands. Every women wants to look good and take good care of herself.
A nice appearance creates empowerment and enhances your identity.
The ads and campaigns mainly show a typical stereotype kind of women. In relation to todays multicultural society this makes no sense.
The use of these stereotypes may therefore unconsciously create an undesirable influence on the effect of the advertisement and the image of the brand.
After thoroughly studying and analyzing various cosmetics magazines , social media campaigns, and different brands it came clear something was missing; The visible presence of more color and diversity.
A few brands are already using ethnic minorities in their advertisements.
Unfortunately not all brands al integrated when it comes to the demographics of our modern multicultural society.
The society we live in has a large diversity of populations that are a very interesting target audience for the cosmetics industry.
