30 Dollar Face Look

The $30 Face Makeup Look | Makeup Wars

This week the Makeup Wars team has been challenged with creating an entire makeup look with products that total under $30! I can't wait to see the $30 Face Makeup Look that everyone comes up with and what their favourite budget products are. This challenge was really tough for me. Firstly I'm a bit of a luxe lover when it comes to makeup, and secondly, being in Canada $30 doesn't go near as far as it does in the US! This just goes to show you that you don't have to break the bank to get a complete makeup look. I think this would

Almay Smart Shade Face of the Day

Almay has expanded their Smart Shade line up with new Skintone matching products and guess what. They actually work! Maybe it's just me (being fair) but I don't often find skin tone matching products to even come close to matching and these do. Here is the look I created using these products: Almay Smart Shade CC Luminous Primer ($16.95 CAD) I love illuminating primers. Since my skin is dry I feel I can use all the help I can get for that youthful glow. The pink tone of this primer helps brighten and offers subtle colour

One of My Favourite New Looks Featuring the Lancôme Lavender Grace Color Design Eye Palette

Just because something needs a little work doesn't mean you should love it any less. This should be our motto for a lot of things, and while I admit I may need to work on adhering to this in some other areas of my life, when it comes to makeup I am a firm believer. Take for example one of my favourite eye palettes at the moment. The Lancôme Color Design Eye Brightening All-In-One 5 Shadow & Liner Palette in Lavender Grace ($55 CAD/$50 US). If you want this palette to look truly amazing then you need to use an eyeshadow

Romantic Brown Smoky Eye Tutorial Featuring Esqido Mink False Lashes

I love a diffused brown smoky eye. It is sultry and sexy yet a little softer than a tradition grey/black smoky eye. It is also amazing for bringing out those baby blues for your hot Valentine's date... or night in. Apply eyeshadow primer to your eye area and a matte nude shade to from crease to brow bone. Apply a matte dark brown like Make Up For Ever #17 into your crease. Blend out the crease with a softer matte brown or taupe like Illamasqua Heroine. Apply Burberry Pale Barley on the lid.
