Make Up Forever Artist Shadows: must-have product

Make Up Forever Artist Palette

With so many eyeshadows in the market choosing a brand can be difficult. But let me make it easy for you, Make Up Forever Artist Shadows. These highly pigmented eyeshadows:  88% pigmented vs. other brands  at 20-30%, deliver high impact, true to colour payoff are a dream.

Make Up Forever Artist Shadows were introduced back in September 2014, in celebration of the brand’s 30th Anniversary. Make Up Forever has been a main stream product in any professional makeup artists’ kit. And with good reason! With 210 shades to choose from ranging from: matte, satin, iridescent, metal, and diamond. The colour selection is phenomenal. When choosing three shadows to create my custom palette I had such a hard time.

In my palette I choose shades with a the intention of using as a contour or eyeshadow base, a blush and to create a smokey eye. When making a custom palette try to choose eyeshadow shades that you can use elsewhere on the face. Especially if you’re on a budget.

Jennifer Aniston at Horrible Bosses 2 Premiere: get the look

At the recent premiere of Horrible Bosses 2 Jennifer Aniston stepped out in her signature golden glow look. I love that she always has this sun kissed look. Not overly tanned but just the right amount of a bronze tint. If any of you saw the first Horrible Bosses you might remember the scene in her lingerie, wow! Her body is smokin’. A real motivator to hit the gym, which is not that easy to do since having a baby. Anyhow, let’s talk beauty. I’ve mentioned in other posts that Jennifer always plays it safe makeup wise. She always goes for the Californian simple chic look which suits her.

"Horrible Bosses 2" - Los Angeles Premiere - Arrivals

For the premiere of Horrible Bosses 2, she wore her hair back and a palette of nudes and a soft pink smokey eye. Makeup artist Angela Levin used the following:

·hydrating Jen’s skin with AVEENO® POSITIVELY RADIANT® Daily Moisturizer SPF 15. It truly makes a big difference for make-up application—not only does it help moisturize the skin, but also evens skin tone and texture.

· small amount of foundation using CHANEL Perfection Lumière Velvet in 40 Beige using your fingers instead of a brush with a circular motion to blend the make-up into her skin.

 ·For her eyes, all four colors of CHANEL Tisse Mademoiselle, applying the gold shade on her eye lids. La Ligne De CHANEL Duo as the top eye liner and CHANEL Le Crayon Yeux in Brun Cuivre as the lower liner, and finished off with three layers of Black CHANEL Mascara Intense.

 ·Le Blush Crème De CHANEL in Cheeky on her cheeks and CHANEL Rouge Coco in Adrienne on her lips.

 ·To finish the look a dusting of CHANEL Les Beiges Bronzer in N50 over her face.

 · Since the dress revealed her shoulders, a mix of AVEENO® Daily Moisturizing Lotion with CHANEL Soleil Tan De CHANEL Liquid Bronzer to bronze and moisturize skin – creating her signature California glow.



I love the mix of budget friendly body care and high-end makeup. Such an easy look to achieve!

What do you think of Jennifer’s look? Or would you like to see her try something new?

Toronto Premium Outlets: shopping

Start the car shuttle bus! Start the car shuttle bus! There’s a Black Friday Sale happening at the Toronto Premium Outlets. And did you know there’s a shuttle bus service from downtown Toronto which will take you there? A daily shuttle service from Union Station and for Black Friday an added service from Oakville GO Station.

Let’s talk shopping! The Toronto Premium Outlet has many of my favourite stores and they also have The Cosmetics Company Store (which carries most of the Estee Lauder makeup lines) including a few MAC Cosmetics goodies. I recently attended a blogger media event where we got to visit a few stores.

You can literally spend the whole day there, so go early. I’ve also been a few times where you’ll see huge tour buses with foreign shoppers so my advice is go during the week if possible to avoid crowds and line-ups.

Lots of great deals! Plus, there’s a huge Black Fridays sale (no avoiding crowds if you want a good deal). The outlet will open at 6am-10pm on November 28. If you’re planning on using the shuttle service use code BEAUTY5 for $5 off.

for more info:
13850 Steeles Avenue West,
Halton Hills, Ontario,

Are you planning any Black Friday shopping sprees? What’s on your list?
