MAKE UP FOR EVER Star Lit Powder + Swatches

Do you remember in 2009 when pigments were the biggest thing? I remember getting those large containers and hardly making a dent in the jar. Then people started to press them and the hype of pigments kinda died down...

Fast forward to 2017 and I have seen the use of pigments/powders starting to get popular again. My favourite look is a smokey eye with some gold pigment patted on top. Or maybe even a metallic green. So many options!!!

MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Shadows + Swatches!

How do you perfect a perfect product! 
One of the first brands I discovered at Sephora was Make Up For EVER. 
They have the most pigment, pure and innovative products on the market.

A few weeks ago, I was invited to a MUFE party which introduced us to the new line of shadows. 
I'm so impressed. Each swatch was silky and vivid.

We also had the opportunity to customize our own MAKE UP FOR EVER Custom Artist Palette! 

A highly-blendable, gel-powder eye shadow and powder blush with vivid color payoff.
I wanted to make a palette that could used be for every occasion. 
One requirement for me was that it HAD to have a deep/rich dark brown.
For a deeper-skinned woman of colour, this would be the ultimate face contour colour.

These shadows ($24.00 CAN) blend effortlessly, come in 210 colours and five different finishes.

From Top to Bottom:
  • TJ01A
  • UB02A
  • T101A

Have you tried these shadows yet?

Up Close and Personal: Make Up For Ever Artisan Brushes

Every girl needs a great set of brushes. I always look for something that is high quality and made to last. How about some brushes that have been five years in the making?

Make Up For Ever has come out with a new line of artisan brushes.

If I had to think of two words to describe them- It would be sturdy and soft.

I decided to do this up close and personal post for anybody who is interested in the brushes 
but just want to see a little bit more before they purchase.

fter five years in development with makeup artists and fiber experts, MAKE UP FOR EVER Artisan Brushes are a revolution in brush craftsmanship. The 100-percent fiber brushes are available in a range of 76 handcrafted styles, each with the perfect balance of straight and wavy fibers that replicate natural hairs. Beveled tips create a two-in-one makeup brush and tool, while innovative hair density and brush head shapes optimize every stroke for ideal makeup application. To achieve the ultimate collection, every brush has gone through 25 production stages by 30 craftsmen and has been checked for quality 50 times.

There are 76 brushes in the line and I have three:
106, 104 & 160.

Small Foundation Brush ($40.00 CAN)
Straight Fibers.
This is a flat brush that works well with liquid and cream products.
It has a tapered top and the bristles are not too dense.
I love using it to apply my MUFE HD foundation.

Medium Foundation Brush ($41.00 CAN)
Straight Fibers.
This is a rounded flat brush that can pick up powders, liquid and creams.
Similar to the 104 brush.
You can get a quicker application out of this brush because of it's size.

Comparison of the 106 on the left and the 104 on the right.
You can see the 106 has more bristles. That's why you can pick up powder products and it sticks.
The 104 is tapered around the edges. Which works well with the crevices of your face.

Blush Brush ($51.00 CAN)
Wavy & Straight Fibers.
This is a sculpted blush brush to be used with powder.
Perfect for the application of blush. You could probably do highlights with it as well.

I should note: These brushes are made out of synthetic fibers that mimic the 
softness of natural hair brushes.

I also love the finish of the wooden ferrule.

Will you be picking up any of these brushes?

Make Up For Ever Aqua Rouge #8 Love!

Do you remember my post on the Make Up For Ever Aqua Rouge #8 launch? I loved the color but wasn't sure that I could wear it. It looked awesome on Gina Brooke but how would it look on me!

My bf and I had a date night a couple weeks ago and I knew that this would be the perfect time to try it out.

I loved it! It didn't budge at all for the whole night. I ate, drank and talked my head off. Left the restaurant with my lip color in tact... SCORE! 

This is everything a lip stain/ lipstick should be. I can't wait to try out new colors from the aqua line!
 Would you wear this color?

FOTD: Chocolate Smokey Eyes featuring 28 Neutral Palette

I love brown smokey eyes because their definitely perfect for day and night. I always like to try out looks before I wear them out to an event. This gives me control to eliminate or re-introduce products to make it better :)

I use MUFE as a base because it was waterproof & smudge proof, Annabelle smudgeliner in Oh my Goth, Eve Pearl Blush Trio in dark & MUFE Smokey Lash mascara. This time I used my 28 neutral palette for most of the look.

This palette is definitely going to be one of my traveling palettes. It has a lot of colors that can be used for smokey, neutral & every day looks.

Do you like brown smokey eyes?
