Smile – I’m back | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

What’s going on guys – thanks for the patience as I took my break!

Lots has happen to me since saying goodbye for a bit. I just want to say say thanks for the wishes of wellness but it wasn’t a ‘break’ but an evolutionary break.

If anyone knows me they would know that I’m a damn hopeless romantic and so much, men have come in and out of my life leaving me with a hole punched in my chest.

Happily this time around I’ve waited before saying I’ve met the men who I’m 99.9% sure I will spend the rest of my life with, and we are now engaged. He’s the most amazing caring and beautiful man I’ve ever met and we have the same birthday! So crazy.

(Look closely)

I will tell you all there is a website and a new press kit that has been developed so I will be leaving WordPress in the near future for my personal website of work, clients, partners, and Press credits. sadly due to partnering with TooFaced Cosmetics after going gold on WordPress earlier this year and loosing clients due to my own stupidity and WordPress advertising restrictions – Tarte Cosmetics will now be a main sponsorship and partnership as per.

I’ve worked from, L.A – toronto – NEW YORK and lived from each of those places (all with the man of my dreams) developing content and working with amazing influencers and my work with EOne (Entertainment One) has kept me too busy. With that said, I miss blogging and I now have the chance to slow down and work with top beauty brands in my brand new office in my brand new house.

If anyone knows my past they know what I am capable of in my future and I will bring you all to your knees, in the best way.

With Halloween around the corner I will be releasing some cool content over the next couple of days and slowly I’ll get to your emails and comments.

Remember ➡️ PA (personal assistant) kevinmakeupandthecity@gmail.com for Press / Media and thank you to review.com for reaching out but this is a public denial of you using any of my content for your website.

Stay tuned. 🤘🏻

Remember appreciate life and what you have because it can be gone in a blink.

Love always,

hi makeupandthecity,

HIT PLAY AND LISTEN WITH ME
⬅️SMASH FOLLOW AND SHOW SOME LOVE!

So the best thing about being on a PR list of any kind is you get to test out some products that are new and exclusive but, here comes the misconception in most cases unless we really, really love something then sadly they won’t keep sending it over and over!
Which hey, it’s sent as free advertising in half of the situations – it’s actually quite sneaky of a company if you give it some thought, why not create a certain amount to send to well know influencers a boom, free advertising!

SIDE NOTE ➡️ dailyjocks.com just realised their new underwear for men called cloud nine (9) and lemme just say, they couldn’t have named it any better! Cooling and comfort polyester blend which is durable and will not fade!

Drug store makeup and skin care has been stepping its game up for a very long time, its almost like, what took so long you are all owned by four (4) main players. So I’m going to talk about three (3) amazing face wash and mask set my way for consideration of review and I always use all three, well, nope, yep I use all three (3).

mask2
1) EXFOLIATING AND REFINE – 3 mineral clays + Red Algae
2) COMFORT AND UNIFYING – 3 mineral clays + Charcoal
3) PURAFYING AND MATTE – 3 mineral clays + Eucalyptus

That is the three (3) main groups that they stick within which I would say is typical to branding but these masks are a clay to foam cleansers which makes your skin feel so amazing. Clay-to-Mousse daily cleansers enriched with 3 different clays and enhanced with a nature-sourced ingredient to leave skin feeling fresh and clean.

The 1st range of clay-to-mousse daily cleansers that leave skin feeling clean and fresh. This cleanser is enriched with Kaolin + Montmorillonite + Moroccan clays and Red Algae Extract. Pure-Clay Cleanser Exfoliating & Refining leaves skin with pores looking tighter, and less visible, without over drying the skin.

There is nice playing games with these face washes, the level of science and ingredients beats that of some of the highs brands out there and I never thought in a million years that it would be this way, I think next time we need too grab both and compare the ingredient list because price no longer seems to be that big of a factor. Dun Dunnn Dunnnn.

Not to mention the fact that there is multi-masking so there can be multi-washing, there so perfect to use together, well, that is if you don’t mind buying all three (3) As of now in Canada you cannot buy these sadly but hit subscribe to find out just when and where you can buy them! Infused with 3 clays (Kaolin, Montmorillonite, and Moroccan) and 1 super-ingredient specifically for your skin type. Cleanse to wash impurities every day with our NEW Pure Clay Cleansers and mask twice a week to beautify skin.

Over time harsh environmental factors, such as pollution and debris damage skin leaving complexion dull and tired. So don’t forget how important it is to wash your face day and night especially if you are a makeup wearer.

PHOTO TRUTH 


“Although I am broken; my heart is untamed”

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! 

MAKEUPANDTHECITY x SMILE SCIENCES 😁

Hey makeupandthecity, some exciting news, 

LISTEN WITH ME!! 🎧

&

SMASH that follow button for important updates and new posts. 

So I was thinking as a influencer, MUA (makeup artist), creator, and media and publicity manager I thought to myself what can I do to elevate and do something different that others are not doing – so I was doing a little (a damn lot) research about teeth whitening because I thought to myself while on set why not incorporate teeth whitening as an option for clients just as we apply makeup, it wasn’t until I messaged a friend who is on set quite frequently and asked her if your MUA or set PA offered you a fifteen minute teeth whitening when getting your eyeshadow applied which lead me to find out that her biggest insecurities on set are being overly photoshopped (not my department) and her teeth not being as while as she would like. 

💥 BOOM 💥 – just as I thought – I guess that’s why I do what I do. Innovation. Even better I cannot find anyone who is doing this, or, talking about it so that lead me to start looking at the different brands out there who thinks like me as has the results, I’m not going to mention other brands because I don’t want to bring attention to them and that’s the honest truth. I ended up contacting smile sciences for the reason that not only do they whiten real teeth but also removing stains from caps, crowns, and porcelain veneers which let’s keep it one hundred – most famous people have, heck, even a lot of not famous people, my two front teeth are fake due to texting and laying down and dropping my iPhone on my teeth. 

So I contacted smile sciences and they agreed to partner with me for this and agree that this opportunity isn’t offered and should be!

DID YOU KNOW ➡️ smile sciences will whiten your teeth up to ten shades in just twenty minutes. lemme pick my jaw up off the floor. 

I am so happy that I thought outside of the box to keep things fresh and keep reinventing the social and beauty world – keep it going full speed into the future. 

These kits retail for $300.00-$400.00 unless you catch a sale or have a code which I believe MAKEUPANDTHECITY will be getting a code for all my beautiful subscribers, so make sure you subscribe to get notified when this post is updated. 

With being 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. 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. There is zero sensitivity which a huge plus. 

They also have a whitening system that works for EVERYONE even if your literally plugged into your phone like me.
