I’m almost sure that there isn’t anyone out there that can’t relate to this, music can control your mood and help you gain perspective – I’ve learned early on that I’m different, I see things so much more clearly. I want something – nine (9) times out of ten (10) I will always get it, not to sound like a spoiled brat or anything because it’s not coming from a place of place of negativity, I just like you, work hard for what I want in life. I vividly remember someone telling me “wow do you have a horse shoe up your ass” and thinking back to it.. what do you think?

Do you believe that some people just have it easier then others, do you believe if you’re more attractive that you will get more in life then someone who isn’t attractive? but who the hell has the right to tell you that you are not beautiful, I’m so sorry for the world that we live in, and what we see as ‘perfect’ isn’t perfect at all.

Everyone wants to be perfect, but when perfection loses it’s meaning, how far will you go? What would you give up to be perfect?

HOW do you define a word without concrete meaning? To each his own, the saying goes, so WHY push to attain an ideal state of being that no two random people will agree is WHERE you want to be? Faultless. Finished. Incomparable. People can never be these, and anyway, WHEN did creating a flawless façade become a more vital goal than learning to love the person WHO lives inside your skin? The outside belongs to others. Only you should decide for you – WHAT is perfect. YOU tell me.

So moving on to something a little less intense and that is affiliate codes – please understand brands typically approach when you have 50k+ subscribers and the affiliate codes are for you! It’s for you to save money on products that I have tried and fully support and love, influencers most of the time WILL not give you a code to a brand that we do not support, and trust me we get offers which I will show you some examples of as we go.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ if you have questions please feel free to ask me about what I am paid and what I am making in commission off of these codes from your support – Another thing that I do want to point out is for advertisement on my blog, or social media we do sign legal contracts because we don’t all make the same amount. If I legally cannot talk about it – I can tell you that on a two day payment basis I do not accept offers that are not $1500.00+ when it comes to codes they are commission base and I can talk about it because we typically make the same amount – which I will be honest and tell you what I make off my commission of you using my affiliate code!

1) SMILE SIENCES
After years of struggling with porcelain staining and tooth sensitivity from in-office and over-the-counter teeth whitening products and procedures, Smile Sciences founders, Deanna Gardner and Andra Moore, were determined to create a formula that would offer powerful prescription-grade results, with no sensitivity, all while professionally whitening teeth and removing stains from caps, crowns, and porcelain veneers.

A98A8746_copy_1024x1024.jpgThe original teeth whiten kit gets you ten (10) shades whiter in one (1) use! and as you keep using it, it keeps whitening. It sells for $300.00 using code CAMERONMICHAEL will get you 90% off so with my code you will only pay $29.00 – I make 10% commission off of this.

A98A8748_copy_e4d7af51-e2c6-4a27-a41e-624fd8ca6d11_1024x1024OH HELLO teeth whitening kit is actually the kit that I’m working with smile sciences with to incorporate a marketing strategy to include in every makeup artists, due to the fact the trays are washable and plug into a phone – it is more ideal then the original kit. (check out my original post MAKEUPANDTHECITY x SMILE SCIENCES) Unlike the commonly used 5 bulb led light, this model has 16 led bulbs making it powerful yet safe.

This kit sells for $80.00 but with the code HELLOCAMERON you save 50% which would make it only $40.00 that you would pay for this amazing kit – I make 10% commission and advertisement due to my marketing strategy that I can safely say I was the first to think of and collaborate with a brand!
You will also find that I am one of three to have a affiliate code for OH HELLO!

2) TOO FACED COSMETICS
Too Faced Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer Jerrod Blandino got his start behind the department store makeup counter in the mid ‘90s. He quickly realized that just a few minutes in the makeup chair could transform and empower his clients. He recognized that makeup is so much more than a little color on a woman’s face – it is an instant mood booster, a best friend, and a powerful ally.

TOO FACED is actually an affiliate of makeupandthecity so I am contracted by STREAMLINE to market advertising and products I love in ‘product of the month’ it isn’t about buying anything – it’s just ad space I am paid for. TOO FACED owns 20% of MAKEUPANDTHECITY.

3) MORPHE
Purveyors of professional-grade make up brushes and sumptuous, 35-pan shadow palettes, Morphe Brushes will enable you to make up like a make up artist – blending your complexion, eye and contour products to perfection to achieve a flawless, airbrushed finish. With a spectrum of styles for effortless application of powder, cream and liquid formulations – from the softest, fluffy powder brushes to flat-topped buffing brushes and tapered, mini blending brushes – you can create a naturally beautiful effect.

FOR MORE INFORMATION ON MORPHE CLICK HERE!

Online and in store my code is MUTHECITY for 15% off everything except sale items and make 25% commission from your support.
Honestly MORPHE to me is really hit or miss, I accepted affiliantion with the company when I was using their brushes a lot.

4) ARTIS BRUSHES
Makeup applies more uniformly due to the CosmeFibre®. The uniform structure of this engineered fibre plus the tapered ends helps apply product more consistently than animal hair. Artis brushes on average have 3-10 times as many individual fibres as conventional brushes. More fibres do more work with every pass across the surface of the skin. For example, the Oval 10 Brush has over 250,000 individual fibres each with a microscopically small and soft tip.

img_1493-1MAKEUPANDTHECITY partnered with ARTIS for their launch into Canada at Holt Renfrew (check out the previous post) and we signed for advertisement on a two (2) week base via banners from AD SENSE – this was one of my most profitable partnerships.
➡️ a code is coming also.

5) AD SENSE

AD SENSE sends me new ads to add to my blog posts and pays out weekly, again this was one of my most profitable advertisement and marketing partnerships. They are amazing to work with and huge shout out to them.

So, it came to my attention that I might have come off a bit rude, if you know me now, you know I would go out of my way to try to make someone feel comfortable – I also want you guys to know that when I talk about new brand deals, affiliate links, PR SAMPLES, or the level of influencer status, it’s only because it’s all happen in such a short period of time for me – in no way would I ever want to make it seem like I’m bragging or that I’m above anyone. So if my last post hurt anyone remember that wouldn’t ever be my intentions.


fall17esteeMoving on, coming up this July 25th 2017 I will be attending a press event for Esteé Lauder for their 2017 fall preview! I am going to live blog when I am there, in my previous post I said if you aren’t on the PR mailing list or don’t know who Taryn or Danielle are to Esteé Lauder – I wouldn’t just show up because you wouldn’t be let in. Maybe if you are in Toronto or the GTA – greater Toronto area – send one of them a e-mail and just explain who you are and why you’d like to come and how you feel you can give publicity and promotion to the brand and too the products.

I know they have a lot of beautiful and amazing skin care for fall 2017, along with some new makeup launches. Click here to check out some of the amazing beauty launches from Esteé Lauder.

Estee-Lauder-Sultry-Nudes-Eyeshadow-Palette-114 shades. Multi finishes. Endless looks.

JUNE FAVOURITES – 2017

What’s going on makeupandthecity, 

➡️ LISTEN WITH ME!! 🎧
↖️ SMASH THAT FOLLOW BUTTON 

It really makes me happy when I’m out and someone says that they know me from my blog and they love the raw feeling also when I’m told that if it wasn’t for me they wouldn’t know what a certain brand was. I love that so much! So much time and energy goes into writing and I try too think of ways to make it more fun for you guys and to take you closer to the world of makeup and my life because – we don’t live perfect lives (I mean clearly you know I keep it one hundred with you) and so I’m going answer some questions while I talk about June favourites! 

I have been a little depressed lately so maybe this will help me because I find when I’m sad, or upset – the best thing to do is channel it into creativity. Sometimes you close your eyes and can block it out. 

Also I love that you guys listen to the music while reading the blog post before we get into it also I wanna just say there’s a little interview about me and MAKEUPANDTHECITY in the September issue of GAYTIMES MAGAZINE and thank you guy so much for getting MAKEUPANDTHECITY on the top one hundred list of print beauty blogs. 

So for JUNE I was sent a lot more PR because JULY 3rd is my birthday so brands just want to reach out and say happy birthday and give you a nice little gift or gift card – it depends.  

So VICHY came out with three face masks that are absolutely amazing – they help to keep your skin clear and take away environmental stress on the skin through the month of JUNE I found myself using the peel off mask called DOUBLE GLOW PEEL MASK which is amazin’ for the skin. 

It’s the first mineral mask with volcanic stone and AHA to gently peel off dead cells for a refined skin texture for a bright and luminous tone. This fresh watery gel has a light fragrance of peach which is so relaxing itself, white musk and black tea for a pleasurable masking experience.

Next would absolutely have to be SMILE SCIENCES they are such a solid brand with benefits better then professional whitening and I have never ever seen my teeth as white as they are now. 

Zero sensitivity • vegan • whitens caps, crowns, and porcelain veneers • with worldwide shipping and superior customer service, Smile Sciences is the go-to, at-home teeth whitening system to a wide array of clientele: from celebrities, top international beauty bloggers and socialites; to busy parents, teachers and on-the-go business executives.

DID YOU KNOW ➡️ I started the ball rolling on incorporating smile sciences into makeup artists kits and have them on set for a whiten boost with the Oh Hello kit that plus the LED trays right into your phone and can be washed and reused on clientele. Check out Oh Hello right here. 

USE CODE ➡️ HELLOCAMERON for 50% your Oh Hello kit (when not on sale) 

USE CODE ➡️ CAMERONMICHAEL for 90% the original kit pictured about sold for $299.00 (when not on sale) click here to check it out.

Note ➡️ using the code is better then any sale they have. I’m also aware that we all want whiter teeth, it doesn’t matter who you are or for what reason so a lot of research went into picking who I was going to partner with for this. Happy whitening guys and remember keep smiling 😁

This beauty Gucci ring which I wanted to get for quite some time and someone saw that at L’Oréal luxe and sent me it for my birthday thinking it was JUNE 3rd still none the less so amazing and so beautiful! It’s metal with aged palladium finish and  green Swarovski crystals and the box it came it! Wow, it looked like snake skin but not it’s really hard to describe but nonetheless thank you L’Oréal luxe. 

Next is for sure the MAKEUP FOREVER HD PR VAULT which I was a little late to open but still so amazing and you guys don’t even understand how far some of the PR packages go, I just got a PR package with a pair of glitter roller skates in it alone with the products which you’ll see very soon! 

Anyone in the makeup and beauty world know the HD line from MAKEUP FOREVER and I don’t think I need to say very much other then it’s dependable, buildable, just won for best under eye concealer. 

➡️ If you’d like a shade match, and receive a foundation, concealer, HD POWDER, lip and skin booster – just comment or email why you’ve been late to the HD party and I’ll pick a few of you to send out some too!

And my last favourite for this month is YOU, you reading right now, my subscribers and viewers I know 44% of you view and don’t subscribe so hit the follow button and be a party of the makeupandthecity famjam

All you comments and input actually means a lot to me and when I hit two million subscribers I’m going to have a massive giveaway – I also haven’t forgot about the MacBook give away, I had picked the 15th of July to do it since it was also a day I was going to announce something very special! 



Touchin’ base / makeup / new partnerships / smile sciences 

Hi makeupandthecity 👋🏻

First off I’d like to say thank you for all the amazing PR companies that sent me gifts for my birthday! Yeah July 3rd was my birthday! Looking back I kinda can’t believe how crazy my life has been – so many ups and so many downs. This is just going to be a chit chat post and some amazing products of course. 

WHAT I’M LISTENING TOO!! 🎧

Don’t forget to smash that follow botton, for important blog updates if any post has been posted already and there is a update that is important and for you, like a give away, saving you money, news in the beauty and lifestyle world, you gotta follow for that!

Accidents happen, misunderstandings happen – so why am I feelings almost betray by you. I unconditionally gave you all of me and my love and you just allowed me to go down the path I went when you could have just said at any time, I think you misunderstood me, I’m going to give you a call. I wish that’s what would have happen. 

So moving on to the makeup reviews I post and the brands that I work with, just like other influencers there is a lot of products that you don’t see, or companies that I won’t talk about because their products are not on brand with me and when a company reaches out to partnership with me, I honestly think to myself, oh this offer is cool, I’m sure my subscribers would want 80% off this amazing product and I make sure I look into the company, read the history of the company and more importantly, does the product work?   

For example SMILE SCIENCES is an amazing teeth whitening system that you can do at home, but, have the same if not better results then professional whitening – and I did just do a little introduction post for SMILE SCIENCES to my blog and you can click here to check that out – it also explains my forward thinking plan for the future and my partnership with SMILE SCIENCES. 

I did so much homework on four different at home whitening kits that all wanted to work with me on this idea because, well, it’s pretty darn cool if you ask me. 

What made me choose SMILE SCIENCES vs. the competitors, a huge thing for me was they were able to create a formula that would offer powerful prescription-grade results, with no sensitivity, all while professionally whitening teeth and removing stains from caps, crowns, and porcelain veneers.

DID YOU KNOW ➡️ SMILE SCIENCES is 100% cruelty-free and vegan, not only is SMILE SCIENCES gentle on teeth, it is gentle to the environment, kosher, FDA registered and made in the USA.

They offer worldwide shipping and superior customer service, SMILE SCIENCES is the go-to, at-home teeth whitening system to a wide array of clientele : from celebrities • top international beauty bloggers • socialites • busy parents • teachers • on-the-go business executives • anyone and everyone. 

This is the original mint flavour kit (also comes in bubble gum) and it costs $300.00 but at check out USE the code CAMERONMICHAEL for 90% off – that is so massive. The results after just using it one time also is so intense, every kit comes with a shade guide just so you know! 

This is the amazing OH HELLO kit where the LED light actually plugs into your phone to power it – it’s the most powerful light that they have. USE CODE HELLOCAMERON for 50% off this kit. 

➡️ just so you know codes and coupons cannot be applied when having a sale so I would wait till after the Fourth of July sale to be over. 

Check out what SMILE SCIENCES has to offer right here! 

Don’t forget about the product of the month is the side bar or at the bottom of the page – if you’re going to buy, buy from that portal because I personally select five (5) travel size products for you guys along with some that you get to choose – plus you get a card for 20% off TOO FACED which works online and in store. 

I also have some other really exciting news but I legally can’t speak about it just yet but when I can it’s going to blow you guys away.  

Also I kinda wanna do a little Q&A – if you want to leave a comment with a question please do so or email my assistant the questions at ➡️ kevinmakeupandthecity@gmail.com and nothing is off limits! 

The full Artis review will be updated also from taking them on set, to self use. The unique washing pad, are there brushes worth so much money, are easy to use. You can find that post here!

Thank you so much to all of you who trust in my opinion and trust that I’m not just being paid to promote products or brands that I do not like because I wouldn’t do that!  Oh hey! I did get my first PR paid trip offer – details to come on that! 

beauty news first ➡️ ARTIS BRUSH getting ready to launch Fluenta Collection at Holt Rentrew, which will be Artis first retail partner in Canada.

What’s going on makeupandthecity?

This is pretty cool and a complete exclusive, definitely pretty sure that I am the first influencer to be informed by ARTIST that they are launch at Holt Renfrew in Toronto and this will be their first retail partner – I’d say that a good first partner to have – wouldn’t you? 

They will be launching the Fluenta collection which is the newest collection from ARTIS and the nine (9) piece brush set retails for $500.00US and ARTIS was nice enough to send me the two (2) full sets and then some must have items – which I will taking on set with me for Teen Vogue and a national cover shoot. 

LISTEN WITH ME!! 🎧

Artis brushes are very luxury brushes and they are on the high end of price but if you really put the research in you will find that what you are paying for is completely worth it, that’s what I’ll be doing for you as you read, learn and experience.

uniform application • superior blending • efficient use of product • retains shape better • versatile • helps avoid sensitivities • animal-free beauty • CosmeFibre • chemically resistant • UV resistant • wears longer • gentle • comfortable fit • modern construction • improves self-application • evolved • durable. 

What are CosmeFibre?

CosmeFibre is made using high tech manufacturing process that produces completely consistent fibres. You can depend on the fibre quality of every Artis brush to be the same, no matter when you buy it. The CosmeFibre is then shaped and refined by hand into fibre bundles, and each brush is hand-assembled to create the artisan-quality Artis Brushes.

I love this chart above if you’re new to the Artis brushes, where have you been!  If you just think they are to much hard earned money – I hear you. Use the chart above to find out exactly what the brushes are, size codes and uses. 

DID YOU KNOW ➡️ Artis brushes are made with CosmeFibre® which is a man-made fibre that naturally resists microbial growth.

The brushes are stunning and come in beautiful packaging, at first it feels a little strange in the hand but you very, very quickly get used to it and find that you will be reaching for your Artis brush more then your normal brushes, which at first I didn’t even notice. The second you open the box it is, an experience. 

Since Holts (Holt Renfrew) will be the first Canadian retailer for Artis – which is kinda actually fitting for the brand because it’s more luxury based – I thought I’d give you also just a little more information. I have contacted Holts for information, and how they feel about the new line to he sold at their location and I will update when I hear back! 

Celebrating a 180-year heritage, Holt Renfrew is recognized worldwide for an inspired shopping experience. Once a purveyor of fashion to Her Majesty Queen Victoria, Holt Renfrew began in 1837 as a modest hat shop. Over the years the brand developed and expanded across Canada. In the 1930’s Holt Renfrew began exclusive accounts with leading European designers and in 1947 hosted Monsieur Christian Dior when he launched his “New Look.” After many years of foreign ownership Holt Renfrew was bought in 1986 by W. Galen and the Hon. Hilary M. Weston. Under their ownership Holt Renfrew has become Canada’s destination for luxury retail.

Of course I will be doing a full brush review and taking you on set with me! That will be coming very soon as well as the UNBOXING make sure you follow to be update when the post changes. For more information about Artis please click here.

LISTEN WITH ME 🎧

Do you remember when I posted a companies to watch in 2017, no? Well you can check it out here. I talked about a company called MILK makeup and since that post not that long ago MILK makeup has become massive and put out so many fun, easy and unique products. It would seem that’s what they are about – No brush? No problem. 

At MILK makeup, we believe it’s not just about how you create your look; it’s what you do in it that matters. We see personal style as the ultimate form of self expression and encourage experimentation – from bare to bold, and everything in between. 

MILK makeup is inspired by our home, MILK studios, a cultural hub of creators in NY and LA. We are driven by our community and champion diversity, inclusivity, and unique personal style.

There are no rules. #LiveYourLook

So it’s pretty safe to say that it was a good call to keep my eye on them and help support from the get go. Let’s talk about some of the iconic makeup to come from MILK studios – now now now I’m only going to mention two products from the right now; I want you to remember them for the future and what I’m going to be announcing in the next couple days! 

One of the newest products is FLEX concealer – full coverage with flex. long-wear full coverage concealer moves with your face (never creases or cakes) to conceal imperfections, combat dark circles, and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Infused with marshmallow and chamomile to decrease redness and blemish inflammation, and blue lotus to moisturize, vegan and gluten-free. Flex Concealer can take on anything you’ve got. As always, this product is cruelty-free.

If you know me then you know that I love stick cleansers like this, I think they are so convenient and amazing to travel with this is the Matcha Cleanser from MILK so Do your skin a solid. Infused with antioxidant-packed matcha green tea, this solid facial cleanser detoxifies, exfoliates, and purifies skin. Perfect for at home or on-the-go, this vegan cleanser in TSA-friendly solid packaging helps you fly through security in a flash. (told you) To use make sure you remove all makeup first, then apply cleanser stick to damp skin in circular motions and rinse. For best results, follow with Matcha Toner. As always, this product is cruelty-free. 

So thats it for now from MILK makeup but I promise you there is more to come, do your research good and check out the rest of the products here of course.
