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.

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.

ON SET WITH ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

What’s up makeupandthecity,

PRESS PLAY AND LISTEN WITH ME!!

It’s been a while, maybe too long I’ve just had so much going on with work, my life and my setting up my new house! I have since worked on some pretty cool photo shoots and sets and love when I can review a brand from a makeup artist (MUA) on set, also it’s a good way to make brand connections and PR lists, today I am going to be talking about the amazing Anastasia Beverly Hills and the some of the top products from my PR and set call ➡️ in most cases, when you get one brand PR e-mail it isn’t long before you end up with 99.8% of brand contacts, or they will contact you.

I’ve loved Anastasia Beverly Hills for brow products for years but to be honest I didn’t really think about the other products within the brand, other then kick ass highlighter glow kits so one (1) of the palettes that I loved was not something completely new or anything but just the way they mixed, and all the tools given and pigmentation is the LIP PALETTE VOL. 1 ➡️ There are eighteen (18) shades within the palette and a large clear from too see them, five (5) of the colors are ‘primary colors’ or the colors that you’d was to use to create any color that you’d like.

With shades ranging from primaries and neutrals to bold brights. Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Palette to create an endless array of lip looks by mixing and customizing highly pigmented, long-wearing matte shades.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ Includes pro mixing plate and double-ended lip brush and spatula.

Moving on with have to be the A18 brush in their pro category and it would be an Angled Chiseler Brush, with this one (1) brush you are able to achieve so much that you would have used multiple brushes for, its a large, slanted brush with soft natural hair to sculpt and define facial contours or apply powder perfectly under the eyes to set concealer ➡️ this brush is an absolute must-have for makeup lovers or professionals. These brushes are premium natural hair but are completely cruelty-free.

The new Soft Glam Palette was my go to set palette, the colors were incredible and very blendable but I really didn’t think I would get anything other than amazing quality – there are fourteen (14) essential shades, the Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Eye Shadow Palette is the perfect collection of easy-to-blend, full pigment shadows. I did use primer but some of the finger swatched i did on the back on my wrist indicated that it’s a long-lasting formula, this palette is complete with bronze metallics and iridescent finishes ideal for a nighttime look and neutral mattes for daytime – not to mention that this is one of the most sought-after palettes in the beauty community, almost always sold out.

URDBAN DECAY : ALL NIGHTER CONCEALER ➡️ COLLECTION | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

Did anyone else watch the Victoria Secret Fashion show (2017), damn eh? They spend the entire year training for that five (5) minute walk – and that poor girl who fell as she was like this is my home town and MY PARENTS ARE HERE! spoiler! she kept her cool till she went backstage then bawled her eyes out with a camera pointed in her face. It goes to show you in real life we fall, and sometimes hard but we get back up.

I know, I know, get to the review eh..

We all know All Nighter from Urban Decay but soon to launch is the amazing, breath taking packaging – All Nighter concealer. I think this has been widely sent out to people as Urban Decay is the easiest PR list to get on but since they took their PR in house its extremely hard to get in contact with anyone. My first introduction to Urban Decay I just moved to Toronto and found myself a job in a Shoppers Drug Mart – Beauty Boutique. It was on Queen Street right down the street from my house and I have zero clue what UD was, I remember I was immediately attracted to the brand because of the sexual names like I’m sure most, can relate. At that time All Nighter was just the epic setting spray.

Set to launch 12/03/2017 ➡️ Urban Decay’s All Nighter Waterproof Full-Coverage Concealer provides flawless matte coverage that lasts all day and all night. Cover anything and get a perfectly blown-out effect. UD’s ultra-pigmented, blendable formula controls shine and masks imperfections for twenty four (24) hours. The beautiful, modern-matte finish never looks overdone. A major problem solver, All Nighter Concealer handles all your hardest-to-hide trouble spots: dark circles, blemishes and discoloration. It even covers tattoos! This formula works beautifully with All Nighter Liquid Foundation or Naked Skin Liquid Makeup. With meticulously calibrated shades that span the complexion spectrum from pale to deep, All Nighter Concealer has every skin tone covered.

Urban-Decay-All-Nighter-Waterproof-Full-Coverage-Concealer

Ok this is absouloutly my favourite part – All Nighter Concealer comes in a gorgeous bottle that’s like a little, covetable version of UD’s All Nighter Liquid Foundation component – with a luxurious, highly metallized gunmetal effect and asymmetric cutouts. As beautiful as the component is, it’s also practical and travel-friendly. No need to carry a brush; the angled, flocked paddle applicator has a little well at the end that provides a precise laydown of product exactly where you need it. Sadly though if there is a ‘little well’ its microscopic or something from first glance.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ it doesn’t oxidize like the foundation or as it says it does. creamy and isn’t dry like the foundation. It is the perfect matte and waterproof as claimed. Easy to blend. After eleven (11) hours it didn’t budge, smear, or crease.

NEW PR LIST ➡️ GLOSSIER COSMETICS | MAKEUPANDTHECITY – PART TWO (2)

Morning friends!

➡️SMASH THAT FOLLOW BUTTON FOR MORE CONTENT!
PRESS PLAY AND LISTEN WITH ME!

So my MacBook with the damn sensitive touch bar, is well, sensitive to touch (blonde moment) and as I was writing yesterday finishing up my post about Glossier I accidently hit something that submitted my post so what better time to say it was intentional for a part two (2) ALSO if you read my monthly favourites which I’m a total fool for not keepin’ up with that, last night me and my fiancé went too a party and I lost my Juste un Clou bracelet by Cartier yes that is a 10k bracelet so I ordered a new one and it wont be here until the 29th of November – yes I understand that it’s really just a bent nail around your wrist but its what it symbolised too me and why it was so important. Moral of the story is don’t drink – shut up and dance with me!

As I mentioned in part one (1) every year I do five (5) companies to watch in that year, that I believe will be extremely successful ➡️ Five (5) COSMETIC / BEAUTY companies to watch in 2017  and in 2018 Glossier Cosmetics already with massive success will be on the list!

FROM THE COMPANY TO YOU ➡️ Here, you’ll learn a little bit more about our beauty product philosophy. Some background: Glossier Cosmetics was created by a group of beauty editors that have (literally) tried everything out there and know what works. We painstakingly develop the best formulas with real-life usage in mind, and put them in the chicest packaging that won’t cost you half a paycheck. We have created our entire lineup to work together to make you look and feel your best – the only thing you need are your fingertips (or favourite makeup brushes). So even if you’re new to the idea of a beauty regimen, or you’re just someone looking to make a few upgrades, we’re here for that. Think of Glossier’s beauty products as the skincare essentials you need, plus makeup you’ll actually use. Thanks for joining us at makeupandthecity.

⭐ Wowder plus the Wowder Brush ⭐ can the name of this magic powder be anymore clever? wow + powder = wowder, it’s so Glossier – the more I experience the more I love the company, Honestly most powders you know mask skin’s texture with a 2-D effect and sop up oil into a cakey film that settles into fine lines. Wowder isn’t just skin-colored dust, so set your expectations high: it cuts shine, sets makeup, and blurs the appearance of pores. It’s the airiest formula possible, developed right alongside the suspiciously soft, perfectly dense Wowder Brush for targeted application. For any of my set MUA (makeup artist) out there, this will be your best friend on set and in print work, hell, even to take a perfect selfie. Together they leave skin with a glowing matte-not-flat finish – with zero white chalkiness, even under bright flash. In three adaptable shades, with pigment levels high enough to help Wowder go undetected on skin but not affect your skin tone. I am really impressed with how lightweight the powder feels on my face. I usually use the Tarte setting powder but I would have to say that Wowder really is a better fit. I use a really hydrating concealer that needs to be set with powder and it set it instantaneously and it feels like nothings on my face. It also blurred out my oiliness and doesn’t look cakey at all, and that’s a massive plus.

WowderDuo_02accepted

➡️ Diamond Powder Light-reflecting particles that counteract the flat effect of most powders. ➡️ Kaolin Clay Soft and incredibly fine, it absorbs oil but vanishes into skin (instead of sitting and caking on top). ➡️ Vitamin E Gives Wowder its silky, non-drying texture.

hypoallergenic ➡️ dermatologist tested ➡️ talc free ➡️  paraben free ➡️ fragrance free ➡️ vegan and cruelty free.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ you can buy Wowder alone, and the Wowder Brush separately as well but to save a pretty penny, wait, aren’t pennies obsolete now, oh sorry,  you can buy them together in a set.

⭐BOY BROW ⭐all-in-one brow fluffer, filler, and shaper – all brow needs have been considered to create THE brow product: one to thicken, fill in, and groom brows into place. The creamy wax formula is inspired by traditional hair pomade for soft, flexible hold that doesn’t stiffen or flake. If you’re like me also and have light eyebrows but like them to be darker and don’t always have the time to make an appointment to get them tinted this will become your go to product to darken your brow hair.

➡️ Beeswax and Carnauba Wax Natural waxes that hold hairs in place without stiffness. ➡️ Oleic Acid An emollient derived from olive oil that nourishes and moisturizes. ➡️ Lecithin A natural fatty substance that adds a silky, smooth texture and a subtle sheen. ➡️ Atelocollagen A collagen derivative that helps condition and strengthen the hair fiber.

AWARD WINNER ➡️ TEEN VOUGE 2015 Game Changers and ALLURE Best of Beauty 2016 – Congratulations too the Glossier team!

MOVIES THAT MAKE YOU THINK : (2015) PINK MOON | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

What’s going on makeupandthecity, lets play a lovegame!

Imagine living in a world where everyone was born gay and you were attracted to the same sex – being gay wasn’t the issue but being straight was.

To be honest when I started watching this movie they don’t give you much identifying factors as to what is happening, it wasn’t until one of the characters is laying in a hospital bed and the news is on and the man say ” there was another suicide today, that makes the second one this with, as a young boy came out as heterosexual ” then the point they are trying to make became very clear, and actually sit back and exhale.
I think this is a really good movie to watch, it holds a very powerful message.

In a society where heterosexuals are persecuted and abortion is forbidden, two teens are forced to hide an unintended pregnancy before their secret romance is exposed.

➡️this is a short film with a message that will leave you thinking.

Director : Sal Bardo
