Marcelle + NYX Matte Lip Cream + Self portrait

Hey Ladies!

It's been a while since I've done a self portrait. Believe it or not, I'm holding the camera with my right hand. I've perfected this because nobody has the patience to wait for me to take the perfect "shot". After 20 pictures this one was my favorite!

I'm not sure if you can see my clothing but I'm rocking my favorite Jessica Simpson denim vest with a long black tank.

I need to highlight my "Canadian eyes":
Marcelle Waterproof Eyeliner - Midnight Black
Marcelle Xtension Plus Mascara - Black

Marcelle (Canadian brand) has great EXTREME black liners and mascara.

I've been obsessed with reds this year. I think I should do a post on my favorites soon. Here I'm rocking NYX Matte Lip Cream in Monte Carlo.
I bought it at IMATS Toronto last year for $3.00.
If you are a matte lipstick wearer, I'd definitely recommend these.
Soft, creamy & long lasting.

Would you be interested in a favorite red lipstick post? 

FOTD: Jennifer Hudson Inspired make up look using Annabelle Cosmetics

This look has to be my favorite look I have done this year. The main reason I think it came out well is because I had a lot of time to perfect it. I will admit as a makeup junkie I neglect a few brands, but after re-organizing my kit I found my Annabelle Cosmetics quad: Gold Digger, Metallic Meltdown, Bronzed idol and Snowflake.

Here is the look. I know it`s not an exact replica but you can tell I was defined inspired by the bronze, gold and red lips.

Random fact about me I love Jennifer Hudson! It`s not just because she has an amazing name :) But because she has been through soo much and always keeps on smiling. There is definitely a lot to learn from her outlook on life.
The funniest thing is that I wore this look to the mall and movies. Sometimes I feel that you should just dress up and feel fab for one questions asked :)
Ladies, What do you think about the look? Also do you have any other celebrity looks that I should try out?

Every Girl should have a Canon PowerShot!

No I was not paid to write this post. I am just sharing my new love I bought for myself recently. I always get asked the what camera do you use question. The camera I have been using lately is the Canon Powershot sd1400 IS.

If you have met me in real life you will know that I'm the girl with the "Big Camera" LOL. I'm much more comfortable going out with this baby. It fits in my purse and makeup bag.

Quick rundown:
*14 mega pixels
*Price range 179.99 to 250.00 CDN
* Several cute colors like pink, orange or black
*4x Digital zoom
*HD video capturing! Perfect for youtube :)

Hope this help any girl/guy deciding what camera to get next!

I was an Annabelle Makeup Artist for the Much Music Video Award Pre-Party

I was sooooo excited to be chosen by Annabelle to be one of their make-up artist for this event.

This was my first time in an event setting & I loved it! The energy & gratitude from the guest made me happy.

Honestly their happiness made me realise why I do make-up. It's crazy how blush or lipstick can really brighten up someones day.

I live for moments like that <3

That picture is from the first look of the day. I gave her a neutral smokey look with a plum lip (not shown).
I love how I coated each lash so carefully LOL... you can totally tell by my facial expression!

OMG! I forgot to tell you all how I did some Male make-up application for the first time. Super easy!
Annabelle's Mineral powder was lightweight and perfect for even coverage : D

How do you treat your phone?

My phone goes everywhere with me, so I see no reason for it to not look it's best!

My mom got this plate for me for $20. Which is a pretty good price because it has a graphic on the back. I love Hello kitty so she made a great choice :)

My question for you is how do you treat your phone?
