You typically should aim to have  makeup be a filter on your face not a mask! The summer is typically time to play down the winters makeup game, less is more and applications typically go from barely there to seamless. If you want to know how to enhance the appearance of beauty this summer then keep reading!

CoverFX has really changed up the makeup game from the derma brand I used to sell as a manager at a BeautyBoutique on king street in Toronto to now breaking the internet with the launch of their new (3) primers for the skin, but one, has them all beat, try keeping it in stock! One of these primers the ‘gripping primer’ which is exactly that, it almost turns the skin too a sheet of tacky glass so once makeup is applied onto of it, it isn’t going anywhere – with a $50.00 price tag (same a the below listed Smashbox) it isn’t found to be cheap, CoverFX was a brand born out of demand or at least they were, their pigmented mixtures and heavy coverage was created to help the worst of skin conditions and issues to feel beautiful, now they are a top luxury brand pulling from Shoppers to enter the world of Sephora and so on.

CoverFX has always been clinically tested, vegan and cruelty free product does not contain: paragons, fragrance, mineral oil, talc, gluten, sulfates, or phthalates which is something that in 2019 we want for our skin where the luxury makeup lines really do not feel they have anything to change once great, always great so they say.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ For the most flawless application, apply your primer first to the high points of the face – bridge of the nose, top of the cheek bones, center of the forehead – and blend outwards. 

When it comes to primers
– there is the number one primer that takes the cake and that would be Smashbox original PhotoFinish primer, since creating the original primer they have come out with so many more primers under the sun, which have all kinds of ‘capabilities’ but do they really need so many avenues of the already great PhotoFinish. This is a silicone base primer and now comes vegan which is nice – so you better believe it will be a smooth, pore free application helping to prolong the life of your base even in hot summer!

SIDE NOTE ➡️ Photo Finish Primers got a makeover! It’s the same formula you’ve always loved, just with a fresh new look. Now it’s easier than ever to find a primer that’s perfect for your skin needs.

In a consumer study on 103 women after 1 week of use:
•    93% saw blurred imperfections
•    93% saw smoother skin
•    91% saw minimized pores & lines
•    95% said it helped makeup go on flawlessly
•    94% said it worked well with their skin tone
•    94% agreed foundation blended more easily

Lastly since both above are $50.00+ I thought it only fair to throw in a E.L.F primer mist which I actually do love for the summer, not only do you spray this on and allow to dry as your primer, you can actually set the skin with it also adding too the longevity and pore minimization, Cut oil and ban shine with this water-based primer mist that preps skin for a smooth, matte finish. Enriched with purified water, cucumber, and vitamins B and E to refresh and hydrate skin.

Truthfully it’s almost like Smashbox Primer Water, well it’s exactly like that actually but for under $10.00 and you can get it anywhere that sells E.L.F which is almost everywhere now a days.

 ➡️ MXTC subscriber has this to say after picking this up from me talking about it in a previous post “Bought this, skeptical about how a mist would work as a primer but elf has never steered me wrong. Well it works very very well! It’s the only primer I use and it keeps me matte for at least 6 hours. Also, because it’s a mist, not a gel or cream or heavy product like other oil control primers , my makeup no longer looks cakey. This makes my least favorite of all my foundations last for hours, so when I’ve got a quick trip I can still look nice without needing to dip into my high end products. It’s a miracle spray. This picture is 6 hours in, no blotting! Thanks Kam”

SUMMER HAZE | WHY IS DEODORANT SO IMPORTANT..? | M X T C

Hello all you beautiful faces! I’m going to touch base on something you would learn in elementary school and if you really said no to dad when he asked ‘did you put on your deodorant today?’ when we both know…he didn’t then comes home because the kids thought it fun to poke at the easy target! no, no no this is not what happen to me, Hygiene was (is) always important to me! with sumner just around the corner I decided to partner with Vaseline Men to help you understand the different types of deodorant on the market and why it might be right or very wrong for your skin! This also launches my ‘SUMMER HAZE’ category where you can use the drop down menu to find all your summer issues, oh there is one thing, come closer… each issue comes with a with a fix – come on guys you know I wouldn’t leave you hanging!

I want to start off with something simple the different types of deodorant(s) and basically what it is they do for your body other then have boys or girls bring milkshakes to your yard, still don’t get it? yeah, I’m right there with you guys! A deodorant is a substance applied to the body to prevent or mask (hide) body odor due to bacterial breakdown of perspiration in the armpits groin, and feet.

A subclass of deodorants, called antiperspirants, prevents sweating itself, typically by blocking sweat glands. Antiperspirants are used on a wider range of body parts, at any place where sweat would be inconvenient or problematic for safety or convenience reasons, since unwanted sweating can interfere with vision, comfort, safety, or slipperiness/grip. I also know that it’s a lot to take in, you think that as you hit puberty all you need is to throw on a deodorant but by the time launch rolls around and it’s time for gym you don’t always feel so great about yourself, so as parents it would be a good thing to insure you watch your children or have them watch you apply your deodorant or antiperspirants.

Vaseline-Men-Extra-Strength-Body-Lotion-1600x1080
The human body produces perspiration (sweat) via two types of sweat gland: eccrine sweat glands which cover much of the skin and produce watery odourless sweat, and apocrine sweat glands in the armpits and groin, which produce a more oily “heavy” sweat containing a proportion of waste proteins, fatty acids and carbohydrates, that can be metabolized by bacteria to produce compounds that cause body smells. 

Trust me, I sweat a lot! comes it calms down I’m typically good but I i just happen to leave the house one day and I was with my friend, B, so B and I went past a store and stopped to grab some gum and stuff and on the way out B said hey what about deodorant  and I’m so happy he reminded me because I just happen to grab Vaseline Men Active dry 48h PRODERMA 0% alcohol antiperspirant and I always would just grab a deodorant never thinking that I needed something more, it’s actually funny for two reason one i’ll never be able to replace this since they stopped making it, sadly and also i feel the same way about B, like I just said, I would just grab a deodorant not taking the time to realize that i didn’t want or need a deodorant, and the saddest part is I guess B and Vaseline Men are both discontinued to me.

This is a stock photo of the best antiperspirant


Moving on guys, hey that’s why so many of you stay isn’t it? My heart is always in my writing so shoppers drug mart is doing a massive summer skin box which comes with all the Vaseline Men products you need! including a shower luffa just for men and what it does to the bottoms of feet lets just say, expect about 20min late because you will loose track of time playing with the one you love!

IN BLOOM – CHARLOTTE TILBURY MAGIC AWAY COLLECTION WITH A TWIST | M X T C

Finally I got my MacBook back (though I do find myself getting stuck on the command and control key) from the Microsoft Chrome challenge, wow it took a little bit longer with shipping it back to me and everything like that, it also got stuck in customs for a very long time, but I’m going to break out the similarities and big differences between the two powerful computers in a coming post! I’ve also decided that any post that is for spring beauty, or new spring launches i will call ‘IN BLOOM’ which just seemed to be, just fitting too me! How are you boys and girls doing? I truly hope that you are all doing well, in Canada central Canada the weather has been pretty good! Not to cold but thankful not to hot! Who you rather it be hot? or cold? or just fall all year round but we had a week of peak sumner heat!

I don’t know why but I seem always over look Charlotte Tilbury! i remember going to a press event for he line coming into Holt Renfrew in Toronto on Bloor St. I wasn’t really liking the feel mind you Faulhaber Communications who was organizing this whole event and you can quote me on this, I truly think there is no better PR Agency in Canada then Faulhaber – they just do things one step on the game! But anyways a PR agency is not why we are here Charlotte Tilbury is, I just have to say how on the website its all ” hello darling “ it truly is iconically Charlotte, after meeting her now when I read the names or read a paragraph,  I can literally her her saying it, it’s wonderful! 

If you were to buy one thing for Charlotte Tilbury it should be the Magic Away Concealer and heres why honestly the Magic Concealer is like spanx for your eyes as much as that sounds, its completely true! it spreads itself out so thin but there is so much pigment and added benefits to it –  is an incredible full coverage liquid concealer in a netural shade for all skin tones and undertones. For five years, Charlotte Tilbury has been working on this holy grail of concealers that reduces the appearance of dark circles, blemishes and imperfections, for fresher-looking second skin instantly!

Charlotte-Tilbury-x-complexion-collection-x-rubric

SIDE NOTE ➡️ If you think that this concealer was not 5 years in the making you are wrong! we would get yearly updated from who handle CT PR either the USA or Canada firm.

Next would be Charlotte’s Unisex Healthy Glow which is a hydrating tint – it’s not as full if  a hydrant as a tinted moisturizer, I would recommend putting a little of a stronger hydrator around your nose, chin, between the brows and centre of the forehead to give it that BAM This fabulous unisex cream is SO natural, no one will suspect you’re wearing it! and its so true so who else to try it on but my boyfriend who actually still wears it to date within his skin care regime, it really does just even out the skin with just enough coverage with a hit of bronze that you wouldn’t really expect. It kinda reminds of the Recipe For Men Bronze cream which does the similar thing ➡️ if not the exact same only its made to work more with mens skin and testosterone and such – which when you’re a man it’s nice to have those options without calling it ‘makeup’ and when I say if you’re a man I mean it as a guy who doesn’t wear makeup or know the world of makeup; plain and simple!

Screen Shot 2019-03-30 at 5.44.09 AM

➡️ Next on my would be the Goddess Ritual Cleanser Duo from Charlotte Tilbury it’s absolutely one of my must have for cleaners ➡️ I always say that cleansers are a grey area, many disagree with me but it’s true, I don’t think there is enough time used to be able to make a difference within the skin, I’m not saying that they don’t do anything because they do, but what follows after cleansing your skin us where you will see the most benefits until trying this ➡️ Deeply purifying, super-charged cleansing duo for fresh, radiant-looking skin just make sure if you have blemish prone skin watch out for large doses of vitamin c sometimes with some skin it can have a negative effect! Sadly I know this all to well!

DYNAMIC DUO | M X T C

Hey boys and girls, what’s going on, I hope you guys had a fun and safe Friday night, if you had alcoholic beverages that can be seriously bad for the skin but we all do it, thankfully for us we have many, many tricks to boost the skin and start to heal it back to better condition. Dynamic Duos is a post I do when two products from different brands just work together so well it’s unbelievable and today I’m going to be talking about BLAQ and GLAMGLOW which are two pretty well known brands in Canada and much of North America. Don’t forget to DM me on Instagram if you have any questions or anything as I don’t approve comments due to negative comments in the past about my gender, of all things and I have likes restricted to five hundred and it allows one like to come though if you’re interested in that it’s a paid plug in call ‘with in the hundreds’ check out my past Dynamic Duos ➡️ DYNAMIC DUOS | MAKEUPANDTHECITY.

I’m sure that you all think BLAQ and GLAMGLOW would go well together regardless because of the brand types that they are but there is so many differences actually night and day – just so you know the Duos are GLAMGLOW Bubble Sheet Mask and BLAQ Eye Masks.  I wasn’t always 100% on the hype of GLAMGLOW I did a promo for them a while back which is what made me actually, see the ingredients, the factory and so much more!

➡️ This carbonated fizzy foam mask effectively removes dirt, excess oil, and makeup buildup. The translucent cleanser begins the oxygenating transformation into a face-forming foam cushion and 3-D microbubbles foam in all directions for the ultimate detox. Truth be told I semi like this mask because it makes you begin to look as if you’re a gnome or right out of the movie Frozen – The black bamboo charcoal sheet is infused with a microbubbling cleanser, featuring Green Tea Teaoxi technology and the essential amino acid l-arginine for radiant skin ➡️ Fresh citrus invigorates the senses.

Now as for BLAQ wow, is one word of saying it, putting it on before you get into the shower, and then even leave it on as you get in and wash your hair – the results are just wow. BLAQ says using the eye mask twice a week until you’ve kicked your bad habits will help reduce the appearance of under eye bags, but they can also be used as a one-off before an event or when you just want to feel good about.

➡️ Hyaluronic acid has the greatest ability to restore moisture out of just about anything, it holds close to 1000 times its weight in water! So for around the eye area these babies are what you need and what you will use once, they will be come apart of your full routine.

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.

RIDE OR DIE PRODUCTS | MAKEANDTHECITY

So with it being 2019 – it’s a new year and a new start to do better then last year, we all have those products that are our ride or die, we use them daily and freak out a little when we see we are starting to run out. Hey guys, I hope you had a nice week! TGIF! We are going to be looking at my favourite beauty items and hopefully I can turn you on to something new for the new year. New year, new you! Some of the products I’m going to talk about you will see in more details. I believe in the products mentioned and I believe the companies can grow – all products have been sent to me via PR or direct from company, unless mentioned.

There is going to be no particular order or anything like that, I don’t want anyone to think that I like one brand more then another brand, also we are all different which is nice, so something that might work well for me – doesn’t work so well for you and your skin. All we can do is try new thing until we come up with our must have list. There is going to be some items that isn’t skin care or makeup as well!

SIDE NOTE ➡️ I am a firm believer that sometimes you have to change up your skin care, it doesn’t have to be anything dramatic it can be something so small as changing your toner, or to a more moisturizing formula in the cold harsh winter life.

➡️ THE MAKEUPDROP™
One thing that I love and actually have a couple of for different reasons is The Zip Pouch by the MakeupDrop, they are so cool looking and the perfect size for all that you would need including brushes, the design of this bag is wonderful, a hard plastic material that stands tall on its own, with it’s holographic and transparent design, it’s the cutest addition to everyone’s beauty arsenal.

Next is something I just discovered but I absouloutly love so much called Restore* Wipes for you face and neck, the packaging is eco-friendly and so clever the way they made it come to be, The Restore* Wipes are individually packaged, making them great for on-the-go. With ingredients such as Chamomile, Cucumber, Jojoba, Aloe and more, Restore* Wipes deliver the proper nutrients to restore skin back to a calm and glowing state. It’s pretty much skin care in a wipe which I love so much because you get such an amazing feel from the wipes before you was your face, so the extra care your skin needs is there. They are also free of Parabens, Sulfates, Triclosan, Dyes, PEG’s, and Animal Byproducts.

Move over BeautyBlender – hello Hybrid Blender, Wow is all that I can say and this brand is a brand that I heart and soul believe in, I love the branding, the image and the 2019 forecast of products, but this blender is like a brush and a BeautyBlender had a child – Revolutionize your makeup game with the Hybrid, the perfect two-in-one applicator for liquid and cream makeup products. The flat Silicone Drop is a clean and product saving surface for an initial application, or sculpting and outlining. The super soft & latex-free Sponge is ideal for that flawless airbrush finish. For those who wear a full face of makeup, this blender takes you from base, contour even to lipstick and everything in between.

➡️ CLARISONIC
I can’t say enough good things about my Clarisonic Alpha, it’s helped my skin in so many ways just to help get that extra clean and to make sure that all of the environmental pollutions, dead skin cells, stop the pores from even becoming clogged in the first place, the only thing I can say, if you buy one of these devices make sure you use it everyday and put the work in because it will change the look of your skin. It also minimizes water retention in the face and neck which creates more collagen and stronger skin without the needle! Removes dirt, sweat and oil for healthier looking skin and boy, does it ever!

clarisonic-alpha-fit-for-men-review-720x540

➡️ MAC 
This one I think is on everyone’s top love list and that is the MAC studio fix powder plus foundation which works amazingly but, that truly only if you know what your actual correct shade. SO I did a little test, I went to the MAC PRO store and asked my shade and got NW15, next, I went to the MAC inside The Bay, there I was told I’m NC15 – I think point I’m like how the hell.. So I went into the MAC store when I was shopping in Buffalo and they said I was N5. So I was just so confused again, I guess it depends on the person that you ask, but shouldn’t MAC of all stores have some kind of system or training to properly, I understand my skin tone, undertone and MAC’s color system so the first man was correct, I am in fact NW15, I guess I’m just saying make sure you get a couple opinions of what is right, for you. Studio Fix really is that one-step powder foundation that gives skin a smooth, flawless, all-matte finish with medium-to-full coverage and a velvety texture that allows skin to breathe. Long-wearing, colour-true, non-caking, non-streaking, non-settling/creasing, non-fading – all for 12 hours. Available in a wide range of colours.

➡️ ZIIP BEAUTY
So this will be one of the most expensive tool I will be talking about but if you’re my age and are not yet ready for filler or botox (done right) or if it’s not even your avenue, it’s your body and your face – always do what makes you happy, ZIIP Beauty is the ultimate tool for well, everything. What it isZIIP is an electrical facial in the palm of your hand. We use nanocurrents and microcurrents to communicate with your skin cells, increasing their effectiveness, prompting them to heal, and encouraging them to make an abundance of collagen and elastin. The result is healthy, lifted, glowing skin that gets better over time. One of the best parts of ZIIP is the APP that you download to sync in whatever treatment that you’d like there is so many, ranging from 12min to 1min quick fix, ENERGIZE ➡️ FILL / LIFT / GLOW ➡️ SENSITIVE ENERGIZE ➡️ CALM / HEAL / TONE ➡️ INSTANT GRATIFICATION ➡️ LIFT / SCULPT / AWAKEN ➡️ PIGMENT ➡️ TREAT + PREVENT / MELASMA / SUN SPOTS ➡️ TOTAL CLEARING ➡️ TREAT + PREVENT / ACNE / BACTERIA ➡️ QUICK FIX ➡️ TREAT PORES / UNDEREYE / FINE LINES ➡️ VITAL EYES ➡️  FOR PUFFINESS / DARK CIRCLES / FINE LINES. ZIIP Beauty costs over $500.00US but truthfully if it’s a substitute for botox and fillers then it’s worth every penny – if you have hooded eyes, after one month of treatment, say bye-bye hooded eyes. I can’t even describe to you how ZIIP feels when you are using it on your face, but you can see the results after one use.

ziipitydo
SIDE NOTE ➡️ You have to keep repurchasing the conductive gel which can become costly because you have to use a lot, at least ten pumps for each ZIIP use, Conductive Gel is the link between your ZIIP and your skin. All of our gels start with the ZIIP Electric Complex, a combination of pharmaceutical-grade glycerin, a sugar complex that is one of the most conductive materials on earth, and dehydrated seawater, which is saturated with electrolytes magnesium, potassium, and sodium. The Electric Complex effectively and safely transfers electrical currents from the ZIIP Device to the skin. GOLD CONDUCTIVE GEL – $150.00 SILVER CONDUCTIVE GEL – $50.00

➡️ MAKE UP FOR EVER
Iconic Ultra HD technology
for flawless, invisible coverage is now available in concealer form. Coated pigments diminish the appearance of dark circles, fine lines, and imperfections, and immediately set. The smoothing, hydrating, creamy liquid captures and diffuses light so that skin that appears bright, flawless, and fresh all day. What I do love about this concealer and the HD technology is that it’s undetectable even under 4k which will just show you how it will look like skin and not apply well, like Shape Tape, this concealer is self-setting so there is no need to powder the concealer, but you can still use a powder if you like, it will not make it look bad or cakey in anyway, I know everyone likes to set and forget and that still applies to this concealer, but, it’s just to good of a concealer. If you are male, it’s particularly amazing for our skin – it seems to work very well with our testosterone.
