Do you want MAC warehouse sale tickets? All your Questions answered here! _ UPDATED

This is an invite only sale.. Tickets are the only way to gain entry!

I don't recommend this but...if you don't have a ticket.. it doesn't hurt to go down to the sale and ask the ladies in line if they have extras.

I've seen it before and 9 times out of 10 the girl gets a ticket. This is not a thing to do if you don't have a strong sense of character because rejection sucks.. and you might go home empty handed!

These are FREE tickets to employees to give out to their friends and family but people make a business out of them by selling them on kijji and craigslist. They can range from $10 to $50 dollars!

If you do buy off the internet make sure they have a gold stamp because the ones without are fakes!

The sale is located at Markham Fairgrounds which is located in Markham. This place is in the middle of frigging NO where... When my girl and I went the first time we got LOSS hardcore.

The MAC warehouse isnt actually in Markham fairgrounds...BUT it's probably the only place that big to hold all that makeup!

This event can happen anywhere from 3 to 4 times a year. This year I've seen spring, summer, fall & winter! I went to Spring, Fall & Winter..LOL. I know. The sales are always held as a 3-day event and are usually take place on a friday, saturday and a sunday.

The sale is divided into 3 rooms.

The first room has stuff like makeup bags, train cases, concealers, eye pencils, nail polish, eyeshadow quads, perfume and etc...

Second room has brushes, foundations, collection sets, eye shadows / pigments...etc

Third room has blushes, compacts, bargin tables, lipsticks./lip glosses, perfume sets and cash check outs

MAC also gives out free gifts at the end and has a cancer donation table. Where they sell 3 to 4 items in a gift set for cancer!

Quick facts:
  • you can only buy 4 of each item
  • go the first day because things sell out fast!
  • be prepared for lines

I hope this post helped!

Makeup Mixshop Haul+ Reviews

I want to thank The Makeup Mix shop for allowing me to try out some of the new items in her shop!

I got mostly E.L.F stuff & Jessie's Girl products. I'm going to highlight a few items.

I'm a big E.L.F fan.. yes I know some products are better than others but if it's $1.00 and it works for you, stick with it!

So far i'm really feeling the eyebrow stencils.
It comes with 4 stencils for only a dollar!!!

Right now I am just looking for a perfect matte brown for my if you have any suggestions let me know!!

I got 3 ELF mineral Lipglosses:
from left to right-
Trendsetter, Trophy Wife & Pageant Princess
$3.00 each
  • These glosses are very SHEER..which I wasn't expecting because of the colors in the tube are so vibrant.

    • They have no smell.

    I would recommend these glosses for girlies on the go. Perfect if you just want to moisturize your lips to go to the store or for walk. I keep one at work and one in the car!

I'm a mascara fiend so I had to try the waterproof lenghtening & volumising mascara. $3.00 each

Honestly I have nothing really bad to say about it. I really feel like it lenghtens more than it voluminizes..does that make sense? LOL

I love wear this mascara to work because it doesn't flake and it looks natural.

 These are all good items to try out! For the price you can't go wrong!

NOTE: These products were sent to me courtesy (free) of Makeup Mix Shop. This review+Haul are all my own opinions. My review was not compromised due to the fact theses products were  free.

Be Bold!

 Yup! You heard me ..Try something different :)

This is actually an old FOTD. I worked soooo hard on blending and I lost these pics in my in a long story short I dunno what colors I used. All I know is that there all minerals tho.

So my question to you is are you a neutral kinda of girl or do you go bold?

I was featured in the newspaper for my Directing & Make-up Artistry!

I've honestly never been this happy before!! Anybody who knows me, knows that I am a very quiet and humble person. So I feel like I'm allow to boast for one day!

Centennial makeup courses a hit
November 23, 2009 11:01 p.m

It started with browsing through makeup how-to videos on YouTube. For broadcasting graduate Jennifer Francis, the hobby soon turned into a second career opportunity.

“Once you watch one, you get addicted (and then) you want to pursue it,” she says. “I thought it’d be super cool if I could do more than one role so if I wasn’t doing television, like shooting and directing, I could go into the makeup artist role.”

So Francis returned to her alma mater in January, enrolling in Centennial College’s makeup techniques certificate program. Covering three 30-hour courses, the program is designed for anyone with an interest in cosmetics. “Different walks of life come through to take the courses,” says lead instructor Jacquie Hutchinson, who has taught in the program for 12 years.

“I have some students who want to become makeup artists, or to do something on the side like weddings for friends ...  Some want to work in theatre or in fashion shows or do film makeup.”

The first course, makeup techniques, gives students a solid foundation to build on, says Hutchinson. In addition to basic makeup applications, students also learn about skin care. “The best-looking makeup can only look as good as it can be on incredible skin,” she says.

Each class includes a demonstration by Hutchinson, who is also a national product trainer and makeup artist for Revlon. Students then perform their own applications using products from the school’s makeup lab or from home. Practicing on classmates gives them the chance to work with different skin types and tones, says Hutchinson.

In makeup artistry I and II, students develop skills such as eyebrow shaping, highlighting, contouring and putting together makeup kits. They also learn how to create different looks for weddings, film, runway, photography and other special occasions.

Classes are small, so students get the individual attention they want, says Hutchinson.

“It’s not a lecture class. It’s very hands-on ... At the end of each class, we (examine) each look and we break it down and look at ways to improve it, and this is how we learn from each other as well.”

Since completing the program in August, Francis has freelanced on various makeup jobs including actor headshots and glamour shoots. She sees her new skills as the perfect supplement to her day job doing corporate videos.

“It just keeps you working and I really like this genre — television, film and all that,” she says. “If I’m able to direct and able to do makeup at the same time, it’s a bonus.”

IMATS Toronto Pics Part 1

Hi Girlies!

How are you? I've had such an AMAZING week. Yesterday I was shopping until I dropped in USA. Today I went to IMATS Toronto. I was super nervous at first because I was going with some beauty bloggers I've NEVER met before. They turned out to be super sweet and fun!

We started our day bright and early. Lets say we were there before it even started @10. The hall wasn't very big, but it was a good size to walk around 3 times and not be bored! LOL

The energy in the hall was amazing. Everyone was so positive. Hell I know most people we talked to wanted to make a sale but they still took the time out to talk to everyone.

Enough talk! I know you all want to see SOME pictures, this is a teaser! HAHA!
