DYNAMIC DUOS | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

Hi beautiful,

⬅️ SMASH THAT FOLLOW BUTTON!

PRESS PLAY AND LISTEN WITH ME!!

So, well summer coming to an ending finally and my type of weather rolls in such as, fall and winter I’ve devoted time to include a some new series within MAKEUPANDTHECITY, the first one being ‘dynamic duos’ so two products that marry together really well, because let’s face it, makeup can be a tad bit touchy, I mean you find the perfect foundation then you add a concealer that doesn’t work properly with the other product, so it starts to ball off or it completely removes the previous step once applied.

Believe it or not this is a common makeup mishap and it takes time to marry the correct items and since moving and well, all the other secrets that will come out, I’ve been added to many many more pr lists as I’ve actually started to work with a company that helps me to get my personal name out there and my blog. Within this series there will be high end and also drug store items stent to me for review.

Today’s DYNAMIC DUOS ➡️ TOM FORD foundation plus concealer and PRETTY VULGAR detox and chill lava water foundation primer(this primer is new, and will be in stores September 10/18)but you can’t check it out on PRETTY VULGARS website as of now!

TOM FORD FOUNDATION PLUS CONCEALER ➡️ A full-coverage, waterproof foundation that also functions as an effective concealer to hide noticeable imperfections.

A flawless complexion is essential to the TOM FORD face. TOM FORD’s first full-coverage, waterproof formula conceals flaws as both a comfortable, breathable foundation with a naturally radiant finish and an effective concealer that hides noticeable imperfections—from darkness under the eyes to blemishes on the skin. This hybrid formula withstands harsh weather conditions such as heat, humidity, and water while maintaining an even complexion.

For me and for the five (5) mix of men and woman I gave this to try (they did know know the brand, finish or type of makeup only that it was a foundation) all kinda said the same thing that it was a nice application, it somewhat hide pores and imperfections but overall did what you would assume a foundation to do until a couple of hours it began to split and become a little caked where the skin wanted to start to produce oil, being a waterproof formula it was hard for the oils to cut through the foundation – which you’d think wouldn’t be an issue since oil is a good way to take waterproof makeup off therefore it would be able to cut through the makeup and sit on top. By the end of the day two (2) our of three (3) noticed that it became very caked on the face and offered a minimal coverage, three of them notice it settling in fine lines, laugh lines, and one (1) of the five (5) used an oil-sheet and it completely removed that patch of foundation.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ results came out pretty much the same during three days and the foundation did not cause any breakouts to oily/acne prone skin!

PRETTY VULGAR detox and chill LAVA water primer ➡️ Reap the many benefits of our Detox and Chill lava water foundation primer by applying the unique charcoal formula on to your skin and watch the color transform into a sheer veil of colorless perfection as it is absorbed. This exotic primer will not only increase the wear time of your makeup, but will provide you with smooth, supple and hydrated skin with its gel like texture that transforms into a cooling burst of antioxidant-rich water beads. The formula also contains blurring and charcoal powders to promote oil absorption & detoxified skin. Overall appearance and condition of your skin will improve due to the high concentration of purified volcanic water enriched with essential minerals obtained from the incredibly lush ecosystem of the Jeju Islands.

So just from reading the description above wouldn’t pairing the two fix all of the issues that we had with the stand alone TOM FORD foundation, giving them the samples jars with the DETOX AND CHILL and TOM FORD foundation over three days and here’s what I found, all five (5) saw an immediate improvement in their skin after applying the primer,

SIDE NOTE ➡️ some would get out of the shower and apply face cream followed by DETOX AND CHILL and some would wait till they were ready to start makeup application or in just tee zone.

The primer made a huge difference, and I know what you’re going to say, that’s what primers are supposed to do but I tried this with three (3) other primers and one (1) of my five (5) had the YSL blur primer and found that they had to be careful with application due to the foundation would start to ball off the skin and it wouldn’t leave an even base.

Everyone had a very similar experience with TOM FORD and PRETTY VULGAR it just melts into the skin and works with the ingredients very well, any problems we faced with the foundation seemed to be taken care of just in the description of DETOX and CHILL so these two products marry very well together and I hope they never get a divorce!

+BEST and -WORST products from TOM FORD | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

What’s up MAKEUPANDTHECITY

⬅️SMASH THAT FOLLOW BUTTON!

PRESS PLAY AND LISTEN WITH ME!!

Lots has happen since I took my break from writing, for example I was able to get myself onto so many more PR lists!

Today I’m going to talk about the best and worst of Tom Ford makeup and skin care. This will become a little series on my blog that I’ll do weekly, +BEST and -WORST and I am pretty excited to start off with Tom Ford as they recently sent me a large bag full or face and body products with me to come!

Tom Ford PR package

The best products so far that I’ve been sent are, number one (1) would have to be by far the older Traceless Foundation with SPF fifteen (15) I absolutely love the way the bottle feels in your hand, and how it’s got the old school Tom Ford look.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ I believe that they are going to discontinue this product once they sell through as they have the Traceless Perfecting foundation with SPF fifteen (15) also with the modern packaging and sized dispenser.

The coverage is a little more medium, definitely isn’t full coverage but it can get there with the use of concealer. It’s for all skin types but isn’t the best if you have oily skin but don’t worry, there is a saving grace. This foundation features the skin-nourishing Tom Ford infused complex. This foundation features micronized pigments to achieve seamless and undetectable coverage, while the Infusing Complex nurtures the skin and helps support natural cellular vitality. The foundation offers sheer to medium coverage with a luminous finish.

Price : $87.00US

Next would have to be the Concealing pen which is the number one (1) concealer for under the eyes and creating a cut contour! It’s designed with an unique applicator, the Tom Ford concealing pen delivers an undetectable finish as it camouflages under-eye circles, areas of uneven skin tone, and redness.

If you’re looking for a kick ass concealer that can match up to the price. This is the concealer for you!

Price : $54.00US

Full coverage waterproof ‘concealer’ foundation the reason that I have concealer in quotes is because I still find that you have to use a concealer when you use this product but with that said it is one of the best for oily skin types, it’s not going anywhere, a flawless complexion is essential to the Tom Ford face. Tom Ford’s first full-coverage, waterproof formula conceals flaws as both a comfortable, breathable foundation with a naturally radiant finish and an effective concealer that hides noticeable imperfections—from darkness under the eyes to blemishes on the skin. This hybrid formula withstands harsh weather conditions such as heat, humidity, and water while maintaining an even complexion.

Price : $104.00(US)

10. GLOSSIER SUPER PURE serum for fresh and clear skin, if you’re someone like me who tries a lot of different products then you want to make sure your skin is protected and you can fight anything before it come, there is a three (3) pack of these serums called the supers but out of them all I find SUPER PURE to be a game changer for you skin, Freaked-out skin, meet your match. The niacinamide and zinc in Super Pure visibly soothe redness and help calm blemishes, respectively—especially useful during that time just before your period. Junk food and stress are other skin-disrupting triggers that Super Pure helps counteract. It gets troubled skin in check and flushes out impurities, including excess sebum that builds up inside pores. The light, water-gel formula quickly absorbs into skin. Super Pure is an integral part of The Supers squad: three concentrated serums to refill your skin’s deficiencies, strengthening it day after day. (GLOSSIER – THE SUPER PACK | MAKEUPANDTHECITY)

TOP FIVE (5) IT! COSMETICS PRODUCTS | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

Happy Halloween, makeupandthecity..

PRESS PLAY AND LISTEN WITH ME!
⬅️SMASH THAT FOLLOW BUTTON (let’s get to three (3) million)

I used too work with IT! cosmetics before the L’Oréal take over and now that they have a massive back up to help the small company evolve and grow to a multi-million dollar well known company, I wanted to wait a bit before working with IT! cosmetics just to see the direction that they would go. Since reaching out I’ve been sent some press samples to use and try out on set and via print and I’m happy to bring you the top five (5) products from IT! cosmetics.

topficve

the first product would have to be Bye Bye Pores Primer they are a lot of primers out there and they all have claims to be the best but when it comes to real results it doesn’t work out so well – but with this primer the claims are all 100% true, as soon as you apply Bye Bye Pores Primer to your skin you immediately look airbrushed and the skin looks better, even wearing this primer alone leaves the skin with benefits which again is a major plus. Some of the main reasons this primer works so well is some of the main ingredients of moroccan lava clay, colloidal clay, purifying charcoal, papaya fruit extract, hydrolyzed collagen, hyaluronic acid, peptides and niacin – plus exclusive Bye Bye Pores Optical Blurring technology. When I wore this primer it did not clog my pores and is oil-free, it also didn’t melt under studio lights and lasted through sweat, even on acne prone no acne was made worse or developed due to Bye Bye Pores Primer.ITPRIMERBYEBYE
DID YOU KNOW ➡️ Almost all products from IT! cosmetics are developed with plastic surgeons.

Next product that is a must ➡️ You Sculpted Face (and body) Universal Contouring Palette which I actually have two of because the last time I did a product pull I picked this product and have had it for two (2) years, there are a few small changes now in packaging and some shades but it has it all from warm, cool tones to matte highlight shades – Talc-free, and perfect for all skin types and skin tones, these shades are infused with anti-aging collagen, silk and peptides to blend effortlessly and deliver smooth, natural-looking coverage that lasts all day with six (6) universally flattering shades.

ityousculptedNext ➡️ Brow Power is an amazing eyebrow pencil and it’s waterproof which is a major plus and the shades that they offer are pretty cool – it’s almost as if they found a way to add a light and dark tone into one shade for a more natural and real applied brow (put to the test against ABH brow products and came out on top) The custom 1.4mm tip, combined with the built-in brow grooming spoolie delivers the look of real hair to your brows with precise hair-by-hair like application that adheres to skin and looks like real hair in just seconds – you achieve long-wearing, budge-proof and sweat-proof results easily and extremely quickly.itbrowpowersuperskinny Next ➡️ Your Skin But Better CC+ Airbrush Perfecting Powder with SPF 50+ the fact that they mention airbrush in the name is smart because that is exactly what you’re going to get is beautiful airbrushed skin that is effortlessly blended and left unbelievably even – the lightweight powder instantly transforms the look of your skin with a veil of optical-blurring pigments, and visually camouflages imperfections while providing powerful sun protection. Infused with hydrolyzed silk, hydrolyzed collagen, niacin and peptides, the talc-free formula also gives you completely buildable coverage that never settles into lines or pores and restores your complexion with loads of skincare benefits and flawless results.

complete must have for everyone and every skin type, especially if you’re just running around and you quickly blend it all over and pat with sponge in areas you need fuller coverage.

Superhero™ 4-in-1 Eye Transforming Super Shadow and Liner Brush has to be one of the coolest brushes I’ve seen in a while and is for sure one (1) of the top five (5) products for me – To experience your Superhero™ eyes, use the eyeshadow brush end to apply your all-over shadow. Slide up the brush base one click to buff in your crease shadow. For added definition, slide up the brush base another click and smudge shadow along your lower lash line. To finish, use the angled eyeliner brush end to effortlessly apply your liner.

economic handle and custom-cut brush heads for easy, controlled application.

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

pinkmoon001
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
