BORN THIS WAY COLLECTION | TOOFACED | M A K E U P x T H E C I T Y

What’s going on all you sexy boys and girls, so as I start to get back on the grind and fall back into a good work flow I kinda forgot that TooFaced was my first source of advertising made money for my blog, They always as a brand checked up on me, always send me new launches and just stuff that I really don’t need, I love the story of the brand, feels very close to home for myself. I realized when I had the BTW concealer out in a hotel and the person I was with asked me if that had anything to do with Lady Gaga that maybe I thought a educational post was needed, and since they just upped the shade range why not now!?

One thing about the BTW Collection from TooFaced is there is a lot of shades, and undertones so everyone will be able to appreciate the amazing, medium to full, hydrating with hyaluronic acid provides long-lasting, skin-balancing hydration for a smoother, more youthful appearance with no flashback which is something good to consider for the summer months, when we all seem to take so many photos! I am not one to sit back and kick it with a foundation on my face but if you like a undetectable finish then this is for you, lets be real, it is makeup so yes, you will be able to see it unless you take the time to really blend and we have  our tools that work for us, blending brush, Artis brush or damp sponge, what is your poison?

SIDE NOTE ➡️ TooFaced partnered with Jackie Ania to create the perfect shade range for everyone under the sun, and those who hide from the sun.

BTW Super Coverage Multi-Use concealer is one of those concealers that really does, do it all. The ultimate multi-use formula for a modern and hydrated photo-ready complexion. Fully loaded pigments provide maximum coverage with an undetectable finish for a look so flawless they’ll think you were born this way.

When I first tried this, i didn’t really like it that much but I didn’t throw it away, I changed shades and it was amazing, I guess the shade ‘snow’ was just to white for myself personally, the formula isn’t ever dry or cake on the skin which is nice but that means it doesn’t self set, so if you’re going to play, make sure that you have something to set your work in place so that you don’t look in the mirror an hour later and be like who the fu…but if you set it, forget it.

Summer is also one of those times where you should use a primer ➡️ SUMMER HAZE | TOP THREE PRIMERS | M X T C (SPONSORED POST) of course there is a lot of people who will say to you, I don’t use primer, or I forget primer but not setting spray, so I tend to tell those men and woman to get a finishing spray that acts as a primer, so you can spray on your primer, do your base and set it adding to the pore less and even complexion you now have.

➡️ New to the BTW line is the new setting powders which are amazing, and come in three tone shades universal across the board – fair – medium and dark of course! 

I guess in closing I want to remind you all that less is more with makeup, it’s easy to build it up but so hard to take it down, please, don’t be fooled by beauty lights, again, beauty lights the name alone is what they are, we all use beauty lights when filming or on set, or even to take photos now which blur, enhance and fix. If you you do you your makeup correctly you don’t need beauty lights or to constantly check to make sure you look ok. Make up is meant to enhance your beauty and it shouldn’t make you feel worse about yourself or who you are!

WTF WEDNESDAY™ ➡️ NARS | NARSissist Loaded Eyeshadow Palette

For Spring 2017, NARS came out with their new NARSissist Loaded eyeshadow palette. Available now at Sephora and Nordstrom, this limited edition palette features twelve (12) shades with shimmery and matte finishes. The formula is very similar to all the other NARS eyeshadows of course very blendable, buttery smooth and silky – even the matte shades were great in this palette. 

SIDE NOTE ➡️ I have had this palette for quite some time now – but – I was not going to review it because it was limited but the restocked it due to high demand so if you want this palette – get it. 

SIDE NOTE ➡️ Bare with me! As I am just learning how to take my own at home PRO quality photos. I’ve set up a tiny little product studio (I’m going to show you guys a how to video ALSO do not forget to hit FOLLOW to be entered in the MACBOOK giveaway for new followers only!

There is three (3) transition shades in this palette alone which is absolutely wonderful, and hate when a brand comes out with a palette and none of the shadows look like they belong together pretty much It’s a very cohesive palette, I don’t feel the need to reach for another palette when I’m working with this one. To bring one palette to set is amazing especially when it’s smaller like this one but you can beat out sixty (60) looks no problem. I also love how this palette has a great variety of warm and neutral hues, none of them are too similar to each other. And the addition of matte shades makes it even more perfect as mentioned.  

The NARSissist Loaded Eyeshadow Palette is specially curated by NARS artists to provide the most flattering range of neutral eyeshadows for all skin tones. Encased in an ultra-chic, mirrored palette and the mirror is a very good quality mirror for the palette, it’s one of the mirrors in a palette that you don’t mind setting down and getting ready in also packs a portable arsenal of next-level neutrals that transform your look from day to night. Soft to smolderingright in the palm of your hand. 

I really think this is the highest pigment, highest payoff yet. Its botanical infusion of pomegranate seed oil, vitamin E, and gingko biloba extract known to help smooth skin it creates the perfect base for effortless blending, while delivering rich, saturated color. 

SHADES ➡️ 12 x 0.04 oz/ 1.4 g Eyeshadow in Newbury Street (white gold shimmer) Windsor (warm beige matte) Privilege (gold metallic) Dover (neutral brown matte) Foix (peach matte) Castille (umber brown matte) Alnwick (copper shimmer) Beaumaris (chocolate brown shimmer) Splendor (pewter sparkle) Versailles (bronze shimmer) Montaillou (dark brown matte) Reale (black satin)


I do think you should wear a eyeshadow primer because on set for ten (10) hours I found with out a primer I had to re-apply color to the lids after about five (5) hours give or take but this is a must have palette for summer for sure! 

I personally love NARS so much. I’ve never had a bad experience with any of the NARS family of products – new or old – what it says, is what you get! Love it.
