What is cookin’ good lookin’ welcome back to MAKEUPxTHECITY (MXTC BEAUTY) yes, you may have noticed that I’ve previously started changing names, traveling more and organizing some pretty cool things with some amazing brands and companies, so at this point I can say, I used to have a dream of a makeup line but I jumped into it way to fast and wanted to much to soon and it, it just didn’t work and wasn’t branded right, so I’m now working with a partner for MXTC BEAUTY and the first thing will be launch is the ultimate face(s) brush set, which is three brushes with iconic charcoal fibers that will change the way you do your entire base with only three brushes that you will use for, concealer, foundation, primer, powder(s), contour, highlight, skin care if you want one of the biggest things is the forth item that comes inside the package that allows you to change between only the three brushes and not have carry any product over, birthing the only face base set from MXTC BEAUTY, I am going to be sending these out in PR before I even tell a retailer and a launch date because I want word of mouth to travel globally. Permanently infused with Charcoal powder.  Paraben and sulfate free.  Brushes stay fresher for longer and more importantly are anti-bacterial ➡️  it’s also the as mentioned above the fourth item within that will change and I mean change your base routine also just the unique brush cute, the length of the beautiful handles, so much more – I also want to say thank you to Cosmetco Company and TrustPilot  for helping to make my vision a reality and CROWN Brushes for sitting down with me and really showing me the ropes! Ok so that’s my little news! Let’s move on to E.L.F and drugstore products!

So I’ve found that E.L.F has came out with products that, well, could be considered DUPES but from my research some, and I mean some of them E.L.F actually came out first, also – did you know our favourite luxe brands are actually inflated prices of up to 70% – yikes. If you check the ingredients list you will find a lot of the items of the high end list and of E.L.F are the same. I’ve picked three items from E.L.F that I think are just to good to be true for the items and complete threats. E.L.F came to play, and they are not stopping and why would they. Why should they?.

Item one is clear and obvious, E.L.F Camo Concealer which is such a killer concealer, I littler only use a concealer under my eyes blended down to around my nose, and a vegan setting powder that just melts into the skin and melts into the concealer. The intense pigmentation is full coverage, but won’t settle into fine lines, courtesy of its oil-balancing formula that leaves behind a full matte finish so make sure that you lay down moisturizer and a good primer!

elf-16-hour-camo-concealer-review
➡️ I said that I am done with the company Tarte, I’ve made it very, very clear that I did not wish to work with them anymore, buuuut I have to bring attention to the fact that E.L.F Camo Concealer and Tarte Shapetape are almost one the same – Tarte finish in my eyes is actually less then Eyes Lip Face (E.L.F) I love the matte finish and the extreme coverage. I will actually be showing both wanders and you will see they are identical ➡️ which is bananas to me! It does leaves a long lasting, velvety matte finish that looks almost airbrushed. I even tried it under my eyes, where I tend not to use any matte products, and it was still good. I mean, I do like something a lot dewier for that area, but it isn’t at all unflattering and doesn’t settle into the lines.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ E.L.F is actually labeled as the best budget concealer all the luxury ingredients for only $5.00 ($6.00 in Canada) remember when I said luxe brands mark up also 70% please always remember that but also, don’t be running to a dollar store saying Kam told me too!

L IS SHAPETAPE R IS E.L.F

With this concealer you can’t go wrong for the price, for the packaging and for the fact that it works, and it works good, and the fact that if you try to find it right now it’s pretty much sold out almost everywhere! They do re-stock them quickly but you have to go or recheck as much as you can and it would be the same as my other two items on the list!

The next item is E.L.F Booster Drops for skin care to custom create your own regime or to add and use as serum! personally I like to add it right to my skin in a patting motion so that it protects against any feature break outs, I don’t have acne or breakouts as it stands but I love the smell of tea tree oil, zinc, which hazel and all the other none chemical ingredients! but guess who came out with very similar if not the same items COVER FX also lets not forget COVER FX used to be sold in drug stores to help people with problem skin and personally I feel as if they sold out, they were already a million(s) dollar company so I don’t get why but that’s how it works I guess.

There are many benefits to a booster serum, and it differs from your regular serum by giving you faster results. The ingredients are concentrated in larger amounts, which gives you a “boost” in outcomes. You typically use three to four drops on your face, and you can use it with a combination of other serums and lotions in a multiple-step skincare routine, delivering a series of restorative ingredients that will get your complexion to look its best. But seeing how it’s such an effective product, small viles usually cost anywhere between $30-$100 or more, which isn’t easily accessible to beauty lovers on a smaller budget. Seeing that gap in need, E.L.F stepped in with their own version. E.L.F Booster Drops cost under or exactly $11.00.

➡️ Take a minute to check this website out, not only for E.L.F but for all brands, know what it is that you are putting on your face! www.skincarisma.com

The next item is one that SMASHBOX had on shelves for quite some time and that would be there primer water, but it doesn’t do all the things that E.L.F has created for their primer water, matte, hydration, glow, clean and fresh and the list goes on. I love this one from E.L.F more then then SMASHBOX because it actually, and I mean actually works! As it dries down it becomes a tacky good matte but not moister sucking primer and trust me, we all know my love for SMASHBOX and how much the brand has had my back and helped me so much within my career but I can’t lie, E.L.F figured something out that SMASHBOX just, well couldn’t and maybe its because the one from SMASHBOX is a primer water and a setting spray from E.L.F it would be only a primer.

MY TIME IN LOS ANGELES | M A K E U P x T H E C I T Y

Friends, brands, incredible people and pretty good food – they say it doesn’t matter how big the city is, or the world, if you don’t want to see someone the odds are you will somehow. I always have this luck, it doesn’t matter if where I am or who I am with I will run into someone that I don’t want to see, even with an ocean between us but that’s not the point of this post, the city of angels, I can tell you right now there is a massive difference between work and play when you go to LA – a lot to see and a lot of places to play. Oppertunities around almost every corner if you know where to look and as long as you look the best.

I found that you can do just about anything if you’re creative enough, though you have to know where to draw the line, just like with anything; I was really surprised to find the intersection of Hollywood and Highland is like the Times Square of Los Angeles or Young and Dundas of Toronto. There’s very little here that’s exciting or LA-specific.It’s pretty much just a big, shiny, tourist trap if you come to LA for a work specific trip with a little time, you can absolutely do better in finding a place to unwind and feel the real LA-vibe. Ever since I was little, I would love taking the bus maybe to much actually even as I grew up I would put in my headphones and listen to music and just learn the area or the way around my new city or part of the city, I do not suggest LA city transit..it was…a good place to get the flu, one word ➡️ Uber.
instant-touch-up-essentials-feature-headerIf you’re like me you’ll have a touch up powder in your jacket pocket or have a cross body bag or nice backpack, assuming you’re not a woman and carrying a purse with you, there are a couple products that I’d recommend to keep your skin looking matte and oil free, if you’re not one for the touch up in public you can go the blotting paper route which I absouloutly love, and can really say they are not a gimmick, trust me I’ve done the leg work – Clean & Clear oil absorbing sheets will do the trick, but, you can also go the Fenty route with Invisimatte Blotting Paper which can work as rolling papers also in Marijuana legal LA and now Canada but that’s getting off topic! You can also just use your trusty MAC studio skin for that oil-free look that latest and a dose of pigment correction if you’re flushed ➡️ lastly if yo u’re carrying a cross body bag or purse you can throw in Smashbox Halo Hydrating powder for a fresh hydrated glow, pair with Smashbox Sheer powder brush.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ There is a lot of smog within LA and A LOT of air pollution so maybe pack a travel size Tatcha Luminous skin mist for only $20.00 or any brand really, just as long as it’s got ingredients to protect and keep the skin comfortable, and safe.

DYNAMIC DUOS | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

Hi beautiful,

⬅️ SMASH THAT FOLLOW BUTTON!

PRESS PLAY AND LISTEN WITH ME!!

So, well summer coming to an ending finally and my type of weather rolls in such as, fall and winter I’ve devoted time to include a some new series within MAKEUPANDTHECITY, the first one being ‘dynamic duos’ so two products that marry together really well, because let’s face it, makeup can be a tad bit touchy, I mean you find the perfect foundation then you add a concealer that doesn’t work properly with the other product, so it starts to ball off or it completely removes the previous step once applied.

Believe it or not this is a common makeup mishap and it takes time to marry the correct items and since moving and well, all the other secrets that will come out, I’ve been added to many many more pr lists as I’ve actually started to work with a company that helps me to get my personal name out there and my blog. Within this series there will be high end and also drug store items stent to me for review.

Today’s DYNAMIC DUOS ➡️ TOM FORD foundation plus concealer and PRETTY VULGAR detox and chill lava water foundation primer(this primer is new, and will be in stores September 10/18)but you can’t check it out on PRETTY VULGARS website as of now!

TOM FORD FOUNDATION PLUS CONCEALER ➡️ A full-coverage, waterproof foundation that also functions as an effective concealer to hide noticeable imperfections.

A flawless complexion is essential to the TOM FORD face. TOM FORD’s first full-coverage, waterproof formula conceals flaws as both a comfortable, breathable foundation with a naturally radiant finish and an effective concealer that hides noticeable imperfections—from darkness under the eyes to blemishes on the skin. This hybrid formula withstands harsh weather conditions such as heat, humidity, and water while maintaining an even complexion.

For me and for the five (5) mix of men and woman I gave this to try (they did know know the brand, finish or type of makeup only that it was a foundation) all kinda said the same thing that it was a nice application, it somewhat hide pores and imperfections but overall did what you would assume a foundation to do until a couple of hours it began to split and become a little caked where the skin wanted to start to produce oil, being a waterproof formula it was hard for the oils to cut through the foundation – which you’d think wouldn’t be an issue since oil is a good way to take waterproof makeup off therefore it would be able to cut through the makeup and sit on top. By the end of the day two (2) our of three (3) noticed that it became very caked on the face and offered a minimal coverage, three of them notice it settling in fine lines, laugh lines, and one (1) of the five (5) used an oil-sheet and it completely removed that patch of foundation.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ results came out pretty much the same during three days and the foundation did not cause any breakouts to oily/acne prone skin!

PRETTY VULGAR detox and chill LAVA water primer ➡️ Reap the many benefits of our Detox and Chill lava water foundation primer by applying the unique charcoal formula on to your skin and watch the color transform into a sheer veil of colorless perfection as it is absorbed. This exotic primer will not only increase the wear time of your makeup, but will provide you with smooth, supple and hydrated skin with its gel like texture that transforms into a cooling burst of antioxidant-rich water beads. The formula also contains blurring and charcoal powders to promote oil absorption & detoxified skin. Overall appearance and condition of your skin will improve due to the high concentration of purified volcanic water enriched with essential minerals obtained from the incredibly lush ecosystem of the Jeju Islands.

So just from reading the description above wouldn’t pairing the two fix all of the issues that we had with the stand alone TOM FORD foundation, giving them the samples jars with the DETOX AND CHILL and TOM FORD foundation over three days and here’s what I found, all five (5) saw an immediate improvement in their skin after applying the primer,

SIDE NOTE ➡️ some would get out of the shower and apply face cream followed by DETOX AND CHILL and some would wait till they were ready to start makeup application or in just tee zone.

The primer made a huge difference, and I know what you’re going to say, that’s what primers are supposed to do but I tried this with three (3) other primers and one (1) of my five (5) had the YSL blur primer and found that they had to be careful with application due to the foundation would start to ball off the skin and it wouldn’t leave an even base.

Everyone had a very similar experience with TOM FORD and PRETTY VULGAR it just melts into the skin and works with the ingredients very well, any problems we faced with the foundation seemed to be taken care of just in the description of DETOX and CHILL so these two products marry very well together and I hope they never get a divorce!

+BEST and -WORST products from TOM FORD | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

What’s up MAKEUPANDTHECITY

⬅️SMASH THAT FOLLOW BUTTON!

PRESS PLAY AND LISTEN WITH ME!!

Lots has happen since I took my break from writing, for example I was able to get myself onto so many more PR lists!

Today I’m going to talk about the best and worst of Tom Ford makeup and skin care. This will become a little series on my blog that I’ll do weekly, +BEST and -WORST and I am pretty excited to start off with Tom Ford as they recently sent me a large bag full or face and body products with me to come!

Tom Ford PR package

The best products so far that I’ve been sent are, number one (1) would have to be by far the older Traceless Foundation with SPF fifteen (15) I absolutely love the way the bottle feels in your hand, and how it’s got the old school Tom Ford look.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ I believe that they are going to discontinue this product once they sell through as they have the Traceless Perfecting foundation with SPF fifteen (15) also with the modern packaging and sized dispenser.

The coverage is a little more medium, definitely isn’t full coverage but it can get there with the use of concealer. It’s for all skin types but isn’t the best if you have oily skin but don’t worry, there is a saving grace. This foundation features the skin-nourishing Tom Ford infused complex. This foundation features micronized pigments to achieve seamless and undetectable coverage, while the Infusing Complex nurtures the skin and helps support natural cellular vitality. The foundation offers sheer to medium coverage with a luminous finish.

Price : $87.00US

Next would have to be the Concealing pen which is the number one (1) concealer for under the eyes and creating a cut contour! It’s designed with an unique applicator, the Tom Ford concealing pen delivers an undetectable finish as it camouflages under-eye circles, areas of uneven skin tone, and redness.

If you’re looking for a kick ass concealer that can match up to the price. This is the concealer for you!

Price : $54.00US

Full coverage waterproof ‘concealer’ foundation the reason that I have concealer in quotes is because I still find that you have to use a concealer when you use this product but with that said it is one of the best for oily skin types, it’s not going anywhere, a flawless complexion is essential to the Tom Ford face. Tom Ford’s first full-coverage, waterproof formula conceals flaws as both a comfortable, breathable foundation with a naturally radiant finish and an effective concealer that hides noticeable imperfections—from darkness under the eyes to blemishes on the skin. This hybrid formula withstands harsh weather conditions such as heat, humidity, and water while maintaining an even complexion.

Price : $104.00(US)

Check back for part two (2) tomorrow!

“Although I am broken; my heart is untamed”

JUNE FAVOURITES – 2017

What’s going on makeupandthecity, 

➡️ LISTEN WITH ME!! 🎧
↖️ SMASH THAT FOLLOW BUTTON 

It really makes me happy when I’m out and someone says that they know me from my blog and they love the raw feeling also when I’m told that if it wasn’t for me they wouldn’t know what a certain brand was. I love that so much! So much time and energy goes into writing and I try too think of ways to make it more fun for you guys and to take you closer to the world of makeup and my life because – we don’t live perfect lives (I mean clearly you know I keep it one hundred with you) and so I’m going answer some questions while I talk about June favourites! 

I have been a little depressed lately so maybe this will help me because I find when I’m sad, or upset – the best thing to do is channel it into creativity. Sometimes you close your eyes and can block it out. 

Also I love that you guys listen to the music while reading the blog post before we get into it also I wanna just say there’s a little interview about me and MAKEUPANDTHECITY in the September issue of GAYTIMES MAGAZINE and thank you guy so much for getting MAKEUPANDTHECITY on the top one hundred list of print beauty blogs. 

So for JUNE I was sent a lot more PR because JULY 3rd is my birthday so brands just want to reach out and say happy birthday and give you a nice little gift or gift card – it depends.  

So VICHY came out with three face masks that are absolutely amazing – they help to keep your skin clear and take away environmental stress on the skin through the month of JUNE I found myself using the peel off mask called DOUBLE GLOW PEEL MASK which is amazin’ for the skin. 

It’s the first mineral mask with volcanic stone and AHA to gently peel off dead cells for a refined skin texture for a bright and luminous tone. This fresh watery gel has a light fragrance of peach which is so relaxing itself, white musk and black tea for a pleasurable masking experience.

Next would absolutely have to be SMILE SCIENCES they are such a solid brand with benefits better then professional whitening and I have never ever seen my teeth as white as they are now. 

Zero sensitivity • vegan • whitens caps, crowns, and porcelain veneers • with worldwide shipping and superior customer service, Smile Sciences is the go-to, at-home teeth whitening system to a wide array of clientele: from celebrities, top international beauty bloggers and socialites; to busy parents, teachers and on-the-go business executives.

DID YOU KNOW ➡️ I started the ball rolling on incorporating smile sciences into makeup artists kits and have them on set for a whiten boost with the Oh Hello kit that plus the LED trays right into your phone and can be washed and reused on clientele. Check out Oh Hello right here. 

USE CODE ➡️ HELLOCAMERON for 50% your Oh Hello kit (when not on sale) 

USE CODE ➡️ CAMERONMICHAEL for 90% the original kit pictured about sold for $299.00 (when not on sale) click here to check it out.

Note ➡️ using the code is better then any sale they have. I’m also aware that we all want whiter teeth, it doesn’t matter who you are or for what reason so a lot of research went into picking who I was going to partner with for this. Happy whitening guys and remember keep smiling 😁

This beauty Gucci ring which I wanted to get for quite some time and someone saw that at L’Oréal luxe and sent me it for my birthday thinking it was JUNE 3rd still none the less so amazing and so beautiful! It’s metal with aged palladium finish and  green Swarovski crystals and the box it came it! Wow, it looked like snake skin but not it’s really hard to describe but nonetheless thank you L’Oréal luxe. 

Next is for sure the MAKEUP FOREVER HD PR VAULT which I was a little late to open but still so amazing and you guys don’t even understand how far some of the PR packages go, I just got a PR package with a pair of glitter roller skates in it alone with the products which you’ll see very soon! 

Anyone in the makeup and beauty world know the HD line from MAKEUP FOREVER and I don’t think I need to say very much other then it’s dependable, buildable, just won for best under eye concealer. 

➡️ If you’d like a shade match, and receive a foundation, concealer, HD POWDER, lip and skin booster – just comment or email why you’ve been late to the HD party and I’ll pick a few of you to send out some too!

Touchin’ base / makeup / new partnerships / smile sciences 

Hi makeupandthecity 👋🏻

First off I’d like to say thank you for all the amazing PR companies that sent me gifts for my birthday! Yeah July 3rd was my birthday! Looking back I kinda can’t believe how crazy my life has been – so many ups and so many downs. This is just going to be a chit chat post and some amazing products of course.

Accidents happen, misunderstandings happen – so why am I feelings almost betray by you. I unconditionally gave you all of me and my love and you just allowed me to go down the path I went when you could have just said at any time, I think you misunderstood me, I’m going to give you a call. I wish that’s what would have happen. 

So moving on to the makeup reviews I post and the brands that I work with, just like other influencers there is a lot of products that you don’t see, or companies that I won’t talk about because their products are not on brand with me and when a company reaches out to partnership with me, I honestly think to myself, oh this offer is cool, I’m sure my subscribers would want 80% off this amazing product and I make sure I look into the company, read the history of the company and more importantly, does the product work?   

For example SMILE SCIENCES is an amazing teeth whitening system that you can do at home, but, have the same if not better results then professional whitening – and I did just do a little introduction post for SMILE SCIENCES to my blog and you can click here to check that out – it also explains my forward thinking plan for the future and my partnership with SMILE SCIENCES. 

I did so much homework on four different at home whitening kits that all wanted to work with me on this idea because, well, it’s pretty darn cool if you ask me. 

What made me choose SMILE SCIENCES vs. the competitors, a huge thing for me was they were able to create a formula that would offer powerful prescription-grade results, with no sensitivity, all while professionally whitening teeth and removing stains from caps, crowns, and porcelain veneers.

DID YOU KNOW ➡️ SMILE SCIENCES is 100% cruelty-free and vegan, not only is SMILE SCIENCES gentle on teeth, it is gentle to the environment, kosher, FDA registered and made in the USA.

They offer worldwide shipping and superior customer service, SMILE SCIENCES is the go-to, at-home teeth whitening system to a wide array of clientele : from celebrities • top international beauty bloggers • socialites • busy parents • teachers • on-the-go business executives • anyone and everyone. 

This is the original mint flavour kit (also comes in bubble gum) and it costs $300.00 but at check out USE the code CAMERONMICHAEL for 90% off – that is so massive. The results after just using it one time also is so intense, every kit comes with a shade guide just so you know! 

This is the amazing OH HELLO kit where the LED light actually plugs into your phone to power it – it’s the most powerful light that they have. USE CODE HELLOCAMERON for 50% off this kit. 

➡️ just so you know codes and coupons cannot be applied when having a sale so I would wait till after the Fourth of July sale to be over. 

Check out what SMILE SCIENCES has to offer right here! 

Don’t forget about the product of the month is the side bar or at the bottom of the page – if you’re going to buy, buy from that portal because I personally select five (5) travel size products for you guys along with some that you get to choose – plus you get a card for 20% off TOO FACED which works online and in store. 

I also have some other really exciting news but I legally can’t speak about it just yet but when I can it’s going to blow you guys away.  

Also I kinda wanna do a little Q&A – if you want to leave a comment with a question please do so or email my assistant the questions at ➡️ kevinmakeupandthecity@gmail.com and nothing is off limits! 

The full Artis review will be updated also from taking them on set, to self use. The unique washing pad, are there brushes worth so much money, are easy to use. You can find that post here!

Thank you so much to all of you who trust in my opinion and trust that I’m not just being paid to promote products or brands that I do not like because I wouldn’t do that!  Oh hey! I did get my first PR paid trip offer – details to come on that! 

MAKEUPANDTHECITY x SMILE SCIENCES 😁

Hey makeupandthecity, some exciting news, 

LISTEN WITH ME!! 🎧

&

SMASH that follow button for important updates and new posts. 

So I was thinking as a influencer, MUA (makeup artist), creator, and media and publicity manager I thought to myself what can I do to elevate and do something different that others are not doing – so I was doing a little (a damn lot) research about teeth whitening because I thought to myself while on set why not incorporate teeth whitening as an option for clients just as we apply makeup, it wasn’t until I messaged a friend who is on set quite frequently and asked her if your MUA or set PA offered you a fifteen minute teeth whitening when getting your eyeshadow applied which lead me to find out that her biggest insecurities on set are being overly photoshopped (not my department) and her teeth not being as while as she would like. 

💥 BOOM 💥 – just as I thought – I guess that’s why I do what I do. Innovation. Even better I cannot find anyone who is doing this, or, talking about it so that lead me to start looking at the different brands out there who thinks like me as has the results, I’m not going to mention other brands because I don’t want to bring attention to them and that’s the honest truth. I ended up contacting smile sciences for the reason that not only do they whiten real teeth but also removing stains from caps, crowns, and porcelain veneers which let’s keep it one hundred – most famous people have, heck, even a lot of not famous people, my two front teeth are fake due to texting and laying down and dropping my iPhone on my teeth. 

So I contacted smile sciences and they agreed to partner with me for this and agree that this opportunity isn’t offered and should be!

DID YOU KNOW ➡️ smile sciences will whiten your teeth up to ten shades in just twenty minutes. lemme pick my jaw up off the floor. 

I am so happy that I thought outside of the box to keep things fresh and keep reinventing the social and beauty world – keep it going full speed into the future. 

These kits retail for $300.00-$400.00 unless you catch a sale or have a code which I believe MAKEUPANDTHECITY will be getting a code for all my beautiful subscribers, so make sure you subscribe to get notified when this post is updated. 

With being 100% cruelty-free and vegan, not only is Smile Sciences gentle on teeth, it is gentle to the environment, kosher, FDA registered and made in the USA. With worldwide shipping and superior customer service, Smile Sciences is the go-to, at-home teeth whitening system to a wide array of clientele: from celebrities, top international beauty bloggers and socialites; to busy parents, teachers and on-the-go business executives. There is zero sensitivity which a huge plus. 

They also have a whitening system that works for EVERYONE even if your literally plugged into your phone like me.
