Good morning boys and girls since it’s – 5:32am for me here in Canada, early I know but I know that I stopped posting for a while and truthfully, I have so much going on in my personal life. As the summer begins to fade away I’m feeling more and more like myself. I felt that click where you need an extra blanket on your bed at night to help keep you warm and truthfully I have no idea what it is but I come alive and thrive in the fall and winter, I haven’t felt so creative lately, which I took very hard because it’s who I am and when I am the happiest, I felt invisible then I realized I had to break the chains and snap myself out of it, I felt, feel almost like I have gone so far that how am I going to top myself. I came to find that I don’t need to do anything but just be who I am and remember why I began and who I wanted to show that they were wrong, but let’s jump into part two (2) of kickass Holiday gifts!

Retire the worn-out Bath and Body Works sets and get them what they really want this holiday season, if you didn’t check out part one (HOLIDAY GIFTS TO MAKE AN IMPRESSION | MAKEUPANDTHECITYHOLIDAY GIFTS TO MAKE AN IMPRESSION|MAKEUPANDTHECITY) I will be starting where I left off, number six (6) on my life is The NARS 2018 Advent Calendar, all you need. Beauty advent calendars are kind of a thing if you haven’t noticed, and they make perfect early holiday gifts. Not only do they offer a fun surprise each morning leading up to Christmas, but it’s kind of like getting a small gift every single day, and how could someone (or you) not love that. The NARS 2018 Advent Calendar has some of the brand’s most iconic and loved products in mini sizes that will have you looking so chic for the entire holiday season.

As for the cost, it’s not exactly a drug store find, but those who shop NARS already know that the brand is undoubtedly high-end. Given that you’ll be getting a whopping twenty four (24) mini items of some of their most popular products, Grab it for $150 on the NARS website.

Number seven (7) lucky number seven – Sunday Riley Good Genes Holiday Kit, I live for Sunday Riley all year, but think this holiday set is especially great! Complete with everything you need to bless your recipient with perfect skin, this set is sure to please anyone who finds it under the tree. If you or your recipient has yet try Sunday Riley this is it – Good Genes is one of the top selling lines from the brand. Enough said.

Pick this set up at Sephora while you can.

Number eight (8) would have to be the iconic Naked 4Some from Urban Decay and no, no this is not on my list because there was a opening in their PR and they added me, it’s because it really is the eyeshadow palettes that started it all – With a range of shades and finishes this huge, you’ll never run out of options, and they are all perfect shades for fall and the holiday season, this would be the ideal gift for your bestfriend or someone close as you’ll be spending $200US on this bad boy, but hey it’s the season of giving, right?

Create sultry neutral looks, smoky dramatic looks and everything in between. Each palette comes loaded with a full-size mirror and a double-ended brush, so you can get Naked whenever the urge strikes. The box is also made with a well in the middle which is really ideal for standing up makeup brushes or even pencils.

4someDyson consistently blows me away with their innovative styling tools. The latest in the brand’s arsenal of amazing hair tech is the Airwrap Styler. Unlike traditional tools that utilize heat (and therefore, can cause major damage), this one uses air, propelled by the Dyson digital motor. This way, users can curl, wave, smooth, and dry with no extreme heat! which is why the Dyson Airwrap Styler is my number nine (9) for amazing holiday gifts – to be clear it’s number nine (9) because its a whopping $500 and you can grab it in store or online at Sephora.

dysonCurious to know what my number ten (10) item is? You will have to come back and look for my next post to find out! It is so special and amazing that it needs, no, deserves it’s own post!

MAKEUPANDTHECITY x CHARLOTTE TILBURY / WHY BE YOU? WHEN YOU CAN BE ME?

whats up makeupandthecity!

I’m still alive I was just, taking a breather I guess. If you saw my previous post, I guess even with the title trigger warning and the clear as day definition – it was pulled for age restrictions. silly boy..

So lets keep this, step back short and sweet, and the next step will be my phone. Not that I’m going to lie, its been so nice until I was pushed in the fire.
Can I just say, the world we live in..wow

Its hard to know who I can trust and who I can talk to you right now, so I’m keeping those in my heart closer then ever, sometimes that’s all that we can do, I can talk till I turn blue in the face, as many people that would like to see me thrive there are also so many that wish to see my fall.

Caution tape around my heart, Do you ever wonder what we could have been? You said you wouldn’t and you fucking did – Lie to me, lie with me, get your fucking fix. Now all my drinks and all my feelings are all fucking mixed, Always missing people that I shouldn’t be missing. Sometimes you gotta burn some bridges just to create some distance. I know that I control my thoughts and I should stop reminiscing But I learned from my dad that it’s good to have feelings- when love and trust are gone, guess this is moving on – Everyone I do right does me wrong.

I fully remember starting makeupandthecity and sending my press kit for the first time to PR companies in hopes that one would see my drive for success and that I knew what I was talking about – sure I left makeupandthecity for a good year and a half when I started something new with someone and it was clear to me that, i’d have too choose because I wouldn’t have the time for both. I was being sent and talking about CHARLOTTE TILBURY when she was still in the UK and just signed with her first Canadian PR company faulhaber communications I’ve been a long standing social influencer for them that I’ve seen interns become press managers and sadly my media contacts ‘move on to better things’ again at this time I was living in Liberty Village in Toronto and I would past their office all the time so the first time I went to and worked in a press room, was there where I saw concept plans for what we are going into.

SIDE NOTE • you don’t need to be press or media to request a press kit – my press kit will include a business email to my new home and who looks over me and my PR and media currently. Also anything that you read here CAN be fact checked upon request! Just click here!

SO
I see all of these influencers beating CHARLOTTE TILBURY for her new gold bar highlighter and I do understand its about $50.00 which takes it there for a highlighter – but the packaging is meant to be cardboard because back in the day so that there was no more weight added to the bar of gold – it was packaged in a very thin almost, cardboard.

bar-of-gold-side_1_1WHAT MAKES BAR OF GOLD MAGIC :

• This delicately-fine, gilded formula will give you the instant glamour of a Bond Girl, every day! • Luxurious Pure Gold Pearls illuminate the skin and soft-focus any imperfections for a lit from within glow. • Create a radiant, glossy complexion in just 5 gentle strokes across the cheekbones, temples, nose, cupid’s bow and décolletage. • The light-reflecting highlighter slims and sculpts as it transforms. Ideal for lifting dull skin, hiding imperfections and adding that red carpet-ready finish to your look.

It is a very impressive formula to boot – I don’t know what they are doing in the UK well I guess I would know better, of course, we put out the best highlighters and lighting kits because it’s always dark and overcast in the UK – shout out to my UK family. If you can’t find your own light boys and girls – make it.

Just a short hello and what’s going on, and welcoming me out of bed..
I’ll get back on my grind! I promise. keep up the love! #MAKEUPANDTHECITYLOVEWINS

MAKEUPANDTHECITY x CHARLOTTE TILBURY – top three (3) must have products 

Hey guys! How’s it going today! I’m back in New York City, which is now home for my amazing boyfriend and I. I was going to do PR UNBOXING of the new Urban Decay HEAT collection but way to many people are reviewing it and have so many crazy opinions. 

Let me just say companies do not send us “better” quality makeup then you buy – I understand why some who say or think that 100% but if you know how manufacturing goes they will only make so many of a certain product – say you need five thousand (5000) units, ok cool! But for five hundred (500) to one thousand (1000) made completely different for PR send outs it would be hard to find a manufacturer who would be cool with that, I keep it one hundred (100) with you guys. Always. 


So Charlotte Tilbury is nothing new to me at all like it is now for people, it’s new and amazing. I remember almost two years ago faulhaber communications which is an amazing full service PR and Marketing agency in Liberty Village in Toronto sent me a press package of products and it was mostly Charlotte Tilbury! 

LISTEN WITH ME!!  🎶

SMASH THAT FOLLOW BUTTON!! And don’t forget new followers only get entered in a chance to win a MacBook in gold! Share the post for another entry! (comment proof) 

Let’s get started ➡️

AIRBRUSH FLAWLESS FINISH compact powder is amazing – the packaging is all very luxury you’ll notice right away and in stunning rose gold, the mirror is also very high quality with a small bit of magnification which isn’t bad. I also love the little engraved star on almost all of the products. 

It really prevents excess shine and brighten complexion. Soft focus micro powders from nano-particles blur away lines and imperfections, sitting like a soft micro-fine cashmere veil on top of your skin it really does make your skin look airbrushed. Rose wax • Almond oil • Flow extracts soothe and restore skin for a healthy glow. 

It is labeled as a full coverage powder but it really depends on your application method, brush will give you a more light-medium coverage and with a sponge pad that comes with all pressed powders will give you fuller coverage. I actually never used the little powder sponges before but now I absolutely love them. 

PRICE ➡️ $60.00 for 8g and carton dimensions 76 x 84 x 16

BUT – it’s a good product and looks amazing on the skin. You can check it out here

THE RETOUCHER was made to be kinda like the retouching pen tool in photoshop where you just click and like magic whatever you don’t want to see is gone

Enriched with a radical Lipo-Siliconic compound and special elastomer pearls, it creates a natural healing veil of colour that blends seamlessly with your natural skin tone, so that imperfections disappear, pores, lines and wrinkles are minimised. It’s also very very hydrating which is always a welcome within any makeup I think the retoucher uses Black tea  • Vitamins • Paraben-free to help fill in hollowed out skin grooves, creating a smooth, seamless surface. 

PRICE ➡️ $48.00 for 3.5ml and carton dimensions 21 x 21 x 145

Check it out here, it works wonders with the AIRBRUSH FLAWLESS FINISH POWDER! ★

FILMSTAR BRONZE AND GLOW DUO is so amazing Charlotte Tilbury was killing the highlighter game before there even was one! Again luxury packaging in the signature rose gold! There is two (2) shades for this and the one above is for fair to medium skin – The bronzer is a blend of pearl and pigment to help contour your face and mimic that sun-kissed skin.

The highlighter has a golden base to universally flatter any skin tone, with Light Flex Technology to capture and reflect light just where you want it – which is a complete must for proper highlighting. Personally I think people are going a little to crazy with highlighting and forget just was artists use for in the first place! But then again makeup is about expression and fun so do you always! It is Paraben-free, of course.  

PRICE ➡️ $80.00 for 16g and carton dimensions 121 x 61 x 15

Take a look and find out more about the product here! Are you sucked in yet

SIDE NOTE ➡️ the brushes from Charlotte Tilbury are amazing and worth the money! They actually have some science behind them – the handle and the way it’s cut has flatten pieces so that they rest when you put them down and don’t roll onto the floor! And that is a trick from back in the 60s – cool, no?
