FOTD with Make Up For Ever Smoky Couleur Palette

I love purples and I promised that I would show off a look from the palette. This look is SUPER easy! I used the purple, a tiny bit of black at the edges and some white in the corners.

I also used Make Up For Ever Smoky Lash with black pencil liner. Lastly, I always finish off my purple eyes with nude lips. Click here for my favorite nudes.

The colors I used are "starred" below.

MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Complexion Starter Kit + Unretouched ad campaign!

You have heard me rave about my love for Make up for ever's HD foundation before. I have a warm skin tone with yellow undertone with a hint of red. Finding a foundation with the right hint of red was always the hardest. Being a Woman of Color it was a huge deal for me to find a foundation that truly looked like skin.

I remember the day I walked into for a sample and ended up purchasing my first a bottle of the HD foundation & powder. It was my first big spurge on a foundation that truly matched my skin.

In Sephora starting today Make Up For Ever has started to carry a HD Complexion Starter Kit ( $89.00 CDN). You get to personalize your kit with your exact foundation color choosing their full range of 26 shades.

They are  also launching an interactive shade finder tool to help you find your perfect foundation match online. You can find the tool here if you want to try it out:

Each kit allows you to acheive flawless skin in three steps: Prep, Cover & Finish.

Prep: HD Microperfecting Primer
A lightweight, oil-free complexion corrector that enhances the skin's texture and primes the skin for makeup application.

Cover: HD Invisible Cover Foundation
An oil-free medium-to-full-coverage liquid foundation that covers skin imperfections flawlessly while remaining invisible on-screen and in real life
Finish: HD Mircofinish Powder & Kabuki Brush
A universal translucent finishing powder to be applied over foundation or worn alone. HD Kabuki Brush is a soft-to-the-touch yet sufficiently firm nylon brush designed to easily sweep powder on the face.


MAKE UP FOR EVER is hosting its first ever open casting call to find the model for their next Unretouched ad campaign.  Women can create their own picture-perfect make up look and then submit it for consideration via their microsite,  

All finalists’ photos will be posted on Facebook and the winner will be flown to NYC for a professional photo shoot in late February.

Here are some pictures that I have taken with Make Up For Ever HD Foundation in 178.

This will always be my favorite foundation.
