What’s up makeupandthecity, you know that uncomfortable feeling where you’re getting out of your car in the drive way and you know no one home, and you feel like someone is watching you and all of a sudden you’re the next victim in the Scream Netflix show, and your mind starts to play tricks on you, and its all epic and scary then as soon as you get into your house, it’s over – I cant stand that at all, anyways, who can believe that it’s already almost December first (1st) – Christmas tree soon! I’ve been seriously loving DERMABLEND lately, there one of those brands who are owned by the same company as VICHY and they used to be a part of makeup line until they became a big enough line to part off leaving VICHY too create their own flawless line ➡️ VICHY COSMETICS ➡️ TEINT IDÉAL full collection *UPDATED this morning (I try to post every morning before work excluding Sunday) I’m going to talk about the TOPS and BOTTOMS of DERMABLEND and the brand itself.

COVER ➡️ 
Flawless Creator™ Foundation Drops (multi-use liquid makeup pigments) Meet the brands best lightweight foundation: Flawless Creator, with 33% high-performance makeup pigments for customizable, weightless coverage that anyone can wear, in any way. This water-free, oil-free foundation formula has a unique weightless, silky texture making it bendable and customizable for buildable coverage.

DB1APPROVED

SIDE NOTE ➡️ BEFORE we go any further, please get out of your head that this brand is anything like COVERFX which is another similar branding strategy. Someone will love you – let the drama go.

Words truly cannot describe just how amazing this foundation is, and how male and female this company is, they use both male and female models is shade charts (as NARS now does) which I absouloutly love, this lightweight foundation is suitable for all skin types. Water-free, oil-free foundation is available in true-to-tone, fade-proof shades. Never cakey or masky for an even and natural look. Provides 16 hours of comfortable wear that is smudge – and transfer-resistant when you set it with setting powder.

You can take this product from sheer coverage with one (1) drop to full coverage with four (4) drops. Personally I just use the dropper and allow it to drip down my face and buff it in with a liquid buffing brush.

TOUCH-UP ➡️
Smooth Liquid Camo Concealer (all-purpose smoothing hydrating concealer) where do I start with this amazing, amazing concealer – I’m trying to think of a concealer to pair it to but I cant it’s almost like a stand alone product as, this lightweight, smoothing liquid concealer provides seamless, even coverage for up to sixteen (16) hours of consistent smudge – and transfer-resistant color wear – when set with DERMABLEND Setting Powder. Use as a under eye concealer to hide dark circles or as a full coverage concealer to cover dark spots, acne scars, and the appearance of redness and rosacea.

SET ➡️
Set + Refresh Makeup Setting Spray (makeup-extending refresher) this is without a doubt one of the best and most powerful makeup setting sprays on the market but sadly I feel that not a lot of people know about the product or it’s not brand name enough for them, when makeup should be about the real-time, real-life, real-results not just a fancy name(s) keep your makeup fresh with the amazing lightweight setting spray. Oil-free makeup setting spray locks in makeup for long wear. Mist on as a makeup refresher throughout the day for a just-applied look all-day. Oil-free and aloe-enriched to enhance complexion throughout the day.

I love that it also controls oil so I  don’t have to use oil sheets for a good nine (9) plus (+) hours when I spray this right after I’m done my own or clients face, also works wonderful under set lighting or influencer lighting, it also is oil-Free and aloe-enriched to keep the cake face clear, not today Satan!

GIGI HADID x MAYBELLINE | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

all for you, yeah all for you

PRESS PLAY AND LISTEN WITH ME!!

Hi guys and girls, what’s going on! Remember before I was talking about not being able to get to all of my PR boxes due to moving and all the other exciting thing, well I opened the new collaboration between Gigi Hadid and Maybelline New York so I thought mind as well go with it, this collection is not out to the public and was to be open by a certain date (two (2) weeks ago) I also have some pretty crazy but sad new coming up in a week or so, so you can expect a stand alone post regarding that! my website is also pretty much done now we are just working on headers and downloading content and selling spaces to advertisers so that they can be active ads constant and changeable by the company like you see with the too faced ‘product of the month’ also I don’t know if anyone has realised but its new products sold a week earlier which is pretty cool!

WEST_COAST_COLLECTION2

It’s finally here: a flat lay of the open Jetsetter makeup palette that Gigi Hadid has created for her Maybelline collaboration. The California-born model loves a natural look, so it’s no surprise that everything in this all-in-one palette is very wearable. According to the IG post, the palette is packed with eyeshadow, concealer, blush, bronzer, highlighter, mascara, lip balm, and brushes – and it’s still under $45

SIDE NOTE ➡️ this collection isn’t available in Canada as of now and I’m not going to add the date its to drop because, its said to be dropping early as it did most places.

The only downside? It appears that the palette comes with two concealer shades that will only work on light to medium skin tones, leaving a large portion of individuals with shades they simply can’t use. No official word yet on shades, or any other details about the palette.

This is a limited edition collection of course, with beautiful shades, typical name and luxury packaging for the Maybelline brand and According to the model, the collection is ‘for the people who are maybe intimidated to do full glam every day.’ And while the collection is divided into East Coast and West Coast capsules – Gigi encourages shoppers to mix and match everything the way she herself does.

The fiber mascara is one of the most have product I think and let me just say, if this works wonders on my arm hairs I can only imagine what it would do to the actual eyelashes – Apparently, this double-sided product was previously only available in Japan, and it’s pretty darn fun to use. First, you apply a coat of mascara as usual, then you brush on the tiny white fibers encased in the opposite end of the tube, which build up your natural lashes before you seal them in with another coat of the mascara. I can see why this collection is so sought after plus the PR package was absolutely beautiful in its own rights. 

EAST_COAST_COLLECTION.png

Gigi insisted that she relies on this stuff in lieu of individual false lashes. I don’t entirely believe this, but that doesn’t change the fact that this is a very good, non-clumpy mascara.

I wonder if the hype behind this is as it should because from what I have in front of me isn’t anything to go crazy over at all, its kinda, well not very pigmented and very powdery with a lot of fall out sadly, the lipsticks are typical Maybelline formulation and the mini brushes are already in the garbage. I cant wait to see what you guys have to say or think, is it mostly about a name? or other then the already boosted about mascara from me, am I being to harsh to expect more from the drugstore brand!

MEN AND BREAKOUTS | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

Good morning makeupandthecity,

⬅️ SMASH THAT FOLLOW BUTTON! (LETS GET TO THREE MILLION SUBSCRIBERS)

Pimples are not just for teens. Men are complaining more and more frequently about skin imperfections.

VICHYMAN

A MAN HAS HIS FLAWS
Even if it’s not nice to hear, certain skin problems are simply par for the course for men. “These imperfections are often caused by the infection of follicles from bacteria that come from shaving” explains Dr. Deshayes. But other factors come into play, particularly the secretion of greasy substances over the entire face, due to sebaceous glands that are more numerous and more active in men than women.

GENTLEMEN, HABITS TO ADOPT FOR TREATING THESE LITTLE PIMPLES ➡️ How do you get rid of pimples? By shaving regularly,  but on the condition that it be smooth: “Shave only in the direction of hair growth. Use a soap-free shaving product with antibacterial action to stop the growth of bacteria.” Also make sure that you are using a new sharp razor blade while shaving. No dull, old, rusty razors or you could end up with a lot more then little bumps.

IF YOU GET A PIMPLE IT’S SIMPLE ➡️ CLEANSE YOUR FACE ➡️  Once the shaving issue is taken care of, the problem isn’t necessarily solved. If you have pimples, you also need to treat the oily skin that is causing them, two (2) simple steps to follow..
– Wash your skin with a soap-free gel containing active exfoliants and salicylic acid to prevent excess sebum and dead skin cells from blocking pores.
– Then use an antibacterial toning lotion containing salicylic acid to eliminate the germs that cause infections and to tighten pores.

Finally, to reduce shine all day long, choose a face cream for men with a matte finish. Make sure that your product contains moisturizing agents to smooth your skin and stop the irritation that causes pimples.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ Do not apply pure alcohol, lemon, toothpaste, or other home remedies. You risk drying out your skin or creating redness and irritation, which in the end will make the problem worse. In short, there are much more effective remedies today than what our grandmas used to use.

It’s been a while since I sat down a just said hey and asked you guys – how are you? I really hope that you’re all doing wonderful. What a crazy couple of months so many positive steps forward and some well, steps I could go back and hit the ever wishing redo button – come on, you know what I’m talking about, that button that we all wish we had that we could smash and REDO!

Sadly, I wish smash that button so hard that I would shatter myself and who would be there to pick up the pieces? The best thing to honestly try to remember is that pain is only temporary, really if you think about it, no matter what the pain is, there is so much that we are, as humans, designed to handle without other brains just shutting off.

I guess, what I am saying in my own way is don’t stop smiling and stop and take a look around you for a minute, look at the sky, the beautiful city, town and stop thinking about the what if and start thinking about what you do have. Keep smiling – no matter what! always.
giphysmileEver look at a clock and be like oh its only two (2) hours longer, that’s nothing and another time two (2) hours can feel like two (2) days, time is a funny thing – sometimes it feels like we have to much time on our hands but in the end its always, there wasn’t enough time.

I’ve always said that when it comes to love there is never a regrettable experience because no matter what, you grow from it (good or bad) and you will always learn a lesson. Love is a funny thing – I seem to find someone fairly quickly also and truly I am not looking for it when it happen, I just always keep my heart open and its true what they say some it starts with a smile and a bite of the lip and then, you’re talking all the time, and taking it slow becomes a fast rollercoaster. I choose to be happy.
In short, shorty – I am happy.

thesky
Life is beautiful, the day, the night, maybe I’m different because I see grey at day but the night is full of color. I wish that I wasn’t so hard on myself and I could forgive myself for the mistakes I’ve made – it’s become very clear to me that sometimes I try so hard to not allow myself to make those same mistakes and to find the reasons why and why not I guess what I’m asking you is,

can you get to a future if your past is present?

MOVIES THAT MAKE YOU THINK : (2014) BOYS | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

Hey makeupandthecity,

⬅️ SMASH THAT FOLLOW BUTTON and show some love!

MV5BNjU4NjE2NDM4NV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMzM2NDg5MjE@._V1_SY1000_CR0,0,701,1000_AL_

I used to do a post called “DATE NIGHT” which was just about a good movie(s) and my opinions on them and now being employed by EOne (Entertainment One) I get to go through so many LGBT (international) archives which I love so much!
So – I’m now going to keep that going a little bit more but it’s going to be ‘movies that make you think’ because sometimes you can watch a movie and it can completely change your thought process even for a day, or a couple hours.

This movie is called Boys but is originally called Jongens which is Boys in Dutch, so yes this movie will play with English Subtitles! If you happen to be apart of the LGBT community this movie will mean a little something more to you then others, it’s truly the typical love story that many of us can relate to or we really want too. Not to mention the character who plays Sieger (Actor : Gijs Blom) couldn’t be anymore handsome and such a good fit for the character.

Gijs-Blom-Sieger-Ko-Zandvliet-Marc-in-BOYS-2
The storyline of BOYS tells the story of Sieger, a sporty, rather quiet 15-year-old boy who discovers love during the summer holidays. Sieger is training in the new athletics team for the national relay championships and meets the intriguing and unpredictable Marc. The friendship that develops seems nothing out of the ordinary, but Sieger secretly harbours stronger feelings for Marc. He engages in a lonely struggle with himself when it emerges that Marc is also in love with him. With his best friend Stef, Sieger discovers a motocross track outside the village. Events soon take on a momentum of their own as Sieger quickly becomes involved with Jessica. At last, he counts for something in the eyes of his tough older brother Eddy, who is secretly using the track to tear around on a moped. Sieger keeps quiet about this to his father, who often clashes with the rebellious Eddy since their mother’s death. Sieger tries to make peace between the two, but his mind is elsewhere, as he finds it increasingly.

➡️ It was a made for TV movie but it took the Film Festival circuit by storm, although the ending is very fitting for this movie, I, just like many of you was left wanting more, I understand people wanted to see more then kissing and more passion and exploring but you have to remember they are play fifteen (15) year olds and its not called “BOYS ON FILM” so we have to respect that this is just a love story and like in real life what we don’t see is well none of our business.

⭐ It got 7.9 out of 10 – which is no surprise at all, it is an amazing movie filled with love, self discovery, first kisses and it will have you connected from the get go.

I personally give this movie ⭐⭐⭐⭐ out of ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Director : Mischa Kamp

If you’re into subtitles, hot guys, first love situations and self acceptance this is a movie you should watch, its absolutely cute and with some truly memorable moments that you will think about days later and smile which is the best part of a good film is when it sticks with you.

If you take the time to catch this movie, get at me and let know your thoughts, what did you think of the ending? Was it hand to loose the smile on your face after the movie ended? speechless.
