FRIENDSHIP(S)| MAKEUPANDTHECITY™️

What’s up boys and girls,

⬅LET’S BE FRIENDS, SMASH THAT FOLLOW BUTTON!
PRESS PLAY AND LISTEN WITH ME!!

So lately I have found myself thinking more and more about friendships and the different types of friendship because well, let’s face itone size does not fit all… You know when you first meet someone and the two of you just click like you’ve been friends forever. That’s what I thought I found lately, and I was really happy, but when others become involved my friend becomes someone completely different, especially with her boyfriend who seems to not like me for, zero reasons. So today I just wanted to talk to you guys about friendship, and signs and if someone is a straight up two-faced bitch.

Healthy and happy friendships are based on common interests, similarities and trust, yep, a real friendship is almost like a relationship. I’m not sure if I’m overthinking as I have been told, but sometimes for your own health and wellbeing it’s time to say goodbye, you have to trust your gut.
Don’t listen to stupid things that people have said, wait and see if you can see that for yourself because chances are, you will. 
You can also just talk to the person like I did but it just seemed to make it even worse, I have come to find that when my friend wants something from me, wants me to do something for her, even when new PR comes in – which is sad. I wouldn’t have ever said I was being used or taken advantage of because it was like we helped each other out and had each other’s backs but ever since a boyfriend got involved for absolutely no reason at all, I have been able to see all of these things for myself.

Great-Friendship-Quote.jpgI find myself to be a loyal friend. Sometimes a loyal friend is the only thing you need to stay sane or to have someone talk you down from doing something you’d regret. These days, a lot of people don’t know their own neighbors. It’s a shame because some neighbors can be the nicest and most helpful people ever. If you’re on a vacation, and you suddenly realize that you forgot to lock the front door, you can call up your trusty old’ neighbor and ask them to head over to your house and lock it for you. Nice dependable neighbors who have each other’s backs are a dying breed, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t introduce yourself to the new neighbors across the street.

I’ve also found its good to have someone who is wise in your life doesn’t have to be someone who shares the same occupation or hobbies with you. It’s simply someone who’s a few steps ahead of you in life and has enough wisdom and patience to guide you in the right direction. It can be anyone — a colleague, a friend who’s beyond their years, or an older neighbor — as long as you look up to this person and want to be more like them or share the same thought process.

SIDE NOTE ➡ Did you know that people without friends are more likely to die an early death?

There are so many different types of friends out there, some that you might not have even known you’d been friends for years until you read this! and hey, I’ll be your friend for sure!

BOBBI BROWN BBU PRO FACE AND LIP PALETTE(S) *GIVEAWAY| MAKEUPANDTHECITY™️

Hi #MAKEUPANDTHECITY

⬅️ LET’S BE FRIENDS, SMASH THAT FOLLOW BUTTON!
PRESS PLAY AND LISTEN WITH ME!!

Bobbi Brown has been around since 1991 (yep, the year I was born) and since releasing her ten (10) lipsticks has been absolutely killing the makeup game, not only makeup cosmetics but Brown has written eight (8) books about makeup and beauty – showing that there is more makeup is always evolving and growing and if you can’t stay current you’ll be left behind.

If you missed my last post (BOBBI BROWN – ESSENTIAL 5-IN-1 FACE PALETTE | MAKEUPANDTHECITY™️) I talked about her makeup manual which actually features these items I’ll be speaking about today, I will say if you are a professional artist or just love makeup this post is more for you – as a self-taught artist Bobbi Brown has helped me a lot. Most will see the price tag and try to find something similar for cheaper which I will include a couple of the same type products ➡️ note the products I’ll be speaking about are from BH COSMETICS and they were sent to me via PR but I have yet to try them or give an honest opinion I will just link for those who do not have $250.00US for a face palette and $250.00US for a lip palette.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ If you are a PRO artist I will include Bobbi Browns credit program.

The BBU Palette is the perfect option for anyone who wants a super-portable all-in-one face palette for all skin tones. In addition to our full range of Correctors and Creamy Concealers, it features Bobbi Brown’s original Skin Foundation Stick in our signature yellow-toned shades. It’s especially ideal for photo shoots, weddings, and runway shows. 

LIMITED EDITION – BBU PRO FACE PALETTE – price $250.00US
Palette Features:
➡️ THIRTEEN (13) Corrector shades (.04oz./1.2g each)
➡️ FOURTEEN (14) Creamy Concealer shades (.03 oz./ 1.1g each)
➡️ TWENTY (20) Skin Foundation Stick shades (.05 oz./ 1.7g each)

I was completely blown away by the quality of the palette as when most companies decide to do a palette like this it always ends up not being the same as the original products but that is not the case – they are all exactly the same as the original products.

BBU PRO LIP PALETTE – $250.00US
Palette features:
You asked, Bobbi listened. The much-loved Artist Palette for Lips is back boasting 54 shades (that’s a dozen more than before). Features four different formulas for lips and includes a Retractable Lip Brush. Lip formulas include 23 Lip Color shades, 11 Rich Lip Color shades, and 20 Creamy Lip Color shades all in a sleek made-for-pros kit. Designed with a labeled interior divider to keep colors organized-including Bobbi Brown’s Top 10-so you can mix and make endless looks.

A portable palette that’s easy to use on-set or simply on-the-go.

bb_prod_EHFE_415x415_0.jpg
To put it simply – It’s an absolute must-have for any makeup lover or professional artist who’s working on set, fashion, bridal even special FX.

BOBBI BROWN – ESSENTIAL 5-IN-1 FACE PALETTE | MAKEUPANDTHECITY™️

Hi boys and girls, 

⬅️LET’S BE FRIENDS, SMASH THAT FOLLOW BUTTON!
PRESS PLAY AND LISTEN WITH ME!!

So everyone knows who Bobbi Brown is in the world of makeup, of course.  I remember when I was just starting out as I am a self-taught artist I did own a copy of her book Bobbi Brown MAKEUP MANUAL and it did teach me a lot of little tips and tricks that I use to this date, so I am very happy to say that there will be a future collaboration but IF you know me, you’d know that for so, so long, I have been searching for a travel palette for just complexion and I mean, not blush, slide out shadows, just concealer, powder and maybe a bronzer would be ideal. BOOM Bobbi Brown comes out with my dream palette – almost as if she knew me and many others out there would benefit from this!

bb.jpg

In comes, ➡️ ESSENTIAL 5-IN-1 FACE PALETTE I was so shocked and happy to have open this and not only that but to have the Bobbi Brown personalize five (5) of them for me and, MAKEUPANDTHECITY is just so nice and amazing. See perfect skin in a snap – this all-in-one palette has everything you need to ace your base.

It’s amazing for travel and touch-ups, this coordinated five-in-one face palette contains all the products you need to perfect skin: Corrector to brighten and neutralize under eye discoloration; Creamy Concealer to lighten and even out under eye skin tone; Skin Foundation Stick for a seamless, natural skin-like finish; and Sheer Finish Pressed Powder to set makeup for all-day wear. Plus, there’s Bronzing Powder for a touch of flattering warmth. Sounds good to me! What do you guys think?

Palette 2

SIDE NOTE ➡️ It’s always better to start with a Corrector to brighten and neutralize under eye discoloration, beginning at the inner corner of eyes where skin tends to be darkest. Layer on Creamy Concealer, gently patting or use a brush to blend the product out. Apply Skin Foundation Stick all over the face, or just where needed. Set makeup with a light dusting of Sheer Finish Pressed Powder; then sweep Bronzer on the high points of the face – cheekbones, forehead, nose, and chin.

WHATS BEING SAID…
➡️ “SO CONVENIENT, SO PERFECT”
➡️ “SUPER HANDY”
➡️ “SIMPLICITY AT ITS BEST!”
➡️ “PLEASE DON’T DISCONTINUE THIS!”

DRUG​STORE HITS AND MISS | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

Hi, makeupandthecity

⬅SMASH THAT FOLLOW BUTTON!
PRESS PLAY AND LISTEN WITH ME!!

First off I would like to thank RIO PR in Toronto for all of their support and love and for adding me to the PR list! I couldn’t be happier with the company and the wonderful team! Maybelline has been killing the drug store lately and I was one of the bloggers to receive these products before they launched (some are still not out until 02.15.18)  So let’s get right into this HIT AND MISS.

First is MAYBELLINE TATTOOSTUDIO BROW GEL AND TINT which I’m not going to lie this is a massive game changer that even rivals Anastasia Beverly Hills for the companies legendary brow products – I absolutely love the applicator on the end of this product, and it lasts for days as it does have a semi-tint added to the amazing formula. My female friend, Summer, helps me to test eye, lips, and highlighters and she likes to apply this product to the back of her hand and sketch out her outline and then fill in as desired.

This product comes in four (4) shades  BLOND  SOFT BROWN ➡ MEDIUM BROWN AND DARK BROWN and it sells for $15.00CAD at any drugstore and Ulta of course!

Fill and color your eyebrows with this ultra-resistant and waterproof eyebrow gel. The sculpting tip and eyebrow spoolie brush work together to create fuller-looking eyebrows that last for days. Smudge-proof. Does not transfer. 98% saw fuller and thicker eyebrows, 93% saw gel does not transfer, and 88% would recommend to a friend.

SET TIP ➡ use two shade one lighter and one darker within your personal tone range and apply the lighter shade to the front of the of the brow then adding the darker shade to finish off the tail end of the brow and blend where the lighter shade meets the darker shade for ombre brows that will always get compliments!

LIP STUDIO Python Lip Kits again, in my eyes another game changer for the lips because let’s face it there is only so much that companies can do, well Maybelline Lip Studio Python Metallic Lip Kits feature duos in gorgeous lip colors and prismatic lip powders. It’s lip artistry made easy! Take on the hottest beauty trend with Maybelline’s metallic lip kit. Make an impact in chromatic lip color with a python effect.
