NewYorkColor: April Challenge #NYCBeautyPro

It's been a while since I have done a #NYCBeautyPro challenge! 
I had to do challenge this month due to it's contents.

I know it's early to say this but I swear New York Color Smooch Proof Liquid Lip Stains ($2.99) are the best products of 2015.

Back to the challenge....
This month we had the opportunity to do a look inspired by like our favourite fictional character.

I picked Tiana from The Princess and the Frog!
I felt like her bold lips would be perfect to emulate with these lip stains!

I shared these on instagram and you all went crazy!
They're pigmented and EXTREMELY long lasting.

I swear Tiana would have these in her makeup stash.

Main products used:
  • New York Color Smooch Proof Liquid Lip Stain ($2.99)
  • New York Color City Proof 24 hr waterproof eyeshadow ($4.99)

Have you seen these in-stores yet?

NewYorkColor: January Challenge #NYCBeautyPro

I love these challenges because they force me to get all done up!

January's challenge: Is all about Demi Lovato!
If you're out of the loop and don't know- She is New York Color's first global ambassador.
More importantly- She can rock a mean smokey eye.

Products we received in our January Kit:

Products used:
  • Show Time Smoking Hot Mascara $3.49
  • City Proof 24 hr waterproof eyeshadow $4.99
  • Expert Satin Matte Lip Color $4.99

The Look:

I'm in love with the stay power of the City Proof 24 hr waterproof eyeshadows. 
I'm so use to "cream" shadows creasing on me but these stayed put!
And those lipsticks.. *swoon* The PERFECT combination of matte & satin. 
I'm wearing Expert Satin Matte Lip Color in Berry Me.

NewYorkColor: Halloween Challenge #NYCbeautypro

Did you know that my love of SFX makeup has lead me to blogging.
I love using makeup to create a fantasy and have fun.

This months theme is "Black Magic, Witch Craft and more..
Every year, I do something gory..BUT I decided to switch it up and go cutesy.
In other words.. I'm in the "more" section.. HAHAHA!
This look is EXTREMELY easy to do.
Get a headband with ears or DIY one!

How to Get the Look:
  • I took the HD Trio Eye shadow ($2.99 US) in Skyrise Steel(The darkest colour) and applied it on the tip of my nose and down to my cupids brow. I used the same palette to make the whiskers and highlight my inner eye (the silver). 
  • On my lips I used the Expert Last lip color ($1.99 US) in Red Rapture.
Final question:
Do I look like a cat, mouse or ?

NewYorkColor: Fall 14 Runway Challenge

Here is my second look for NYC Canada Beauty Pro program challenge. 
September's theme is Fall 14 Runway looks.

Do I go for Derek Lam's coloured smokey eye or Rag & Bone's dramatic Cat eye?

I decided why not do both!

How to Get the Look:
  • I took HD Trio Eye shadow ($2.99 US) in Blue's Cafe and applied the blue over my lower lid. Making sure that it didn't touch my crease.
  • Then I used NYC Waterproof Eyeliner pencil ($3.99 US) on my upper and lower lash line. Filling in any gaps and using it to clean up my wing.
  • I took HD Trio Eye shadow ($2.99 US) in Blue's Cafe and applied the gold on my inner corners.
  • On top of that I used NYC Sparkle Eye Dust($2.99 US) in Golden Champagne.

I finished off the look with liner + Mascara. Also a nude lipstick since the eyes were bold.

Would you wear this look?

NewYorkColor: Times Square Challenge

I was asked to be apart of NYC Canada Beauty Pro program. I felt like it was the perfect thing to participate in so I can share looks that work for WOC and try new products from the line.

The first theme was Times Square. It's one of my all-time favourite places to visit in NYC. 
The bright lights- sounds- food .. I could go on and on!

In July's package there was:
  • One (1) Big Bold Volume by the Lash Mascara
  • Three (3) Show Time Velvet Eyeliners
  • Three (3) IndividualEyes Eyeshadow Powders
What I used & The Look:

NYC New York Color's Individual Eyes palettes ($4.99 US) are an all-in-one product!
It comes with a primer, illuminator, applicator and complementing eye colour shadows.

NYC New York Color's Showtime Velvet Eyeliner ($1.99 US) are different than your typical coloured eyeliners because they have little shimmers in them. 
They come in three colours.

NYC New York Color's Big Bold Mascara ($4.99 US)  has a rubber brush that makes hard to catch lashes quite easy.
