Erdem, known for his dreamlike and ethereal fashion vibes has collaborated with famed beauty brand NARS on another collection of ‘nostalgically romantic’ makeup for Summer 2018. ‘A custom designed palette of demure and daring shades for eyes, lips and cheeks’ makes it’s ways into stores early May around the country. That being said, I did NOT know what to expect when I got this gorgeous package of goodies or did not even know what Erdem has previously collaborated with a beauty brand. BUT… To my delight, I was elated when I saw the sexy, soft yet smouldering shades in each palette.. To me the collection from the packaging and product titles to the shades, is based on a secret garden like experience, which I can not get enough of and think is the perfect Summer mood. I can’t wait to try literally EVERYTHING in this collection!
Exciting news from my friends over at NARS! For Fall 2017 the iconic beauty brand is pleased to announce two new launches! First and for the first time ever, NARS is introducing foundation sticks with the launch of the ‘Velvet Matte Foundation Stick‘. Available in 20 shades, here we have [from top to bottom] Trinidad, Barcelona, Stromboli and Ceylan! I guess they are all named of exotic locations around the world! I personally did a swatch test on my skin of the products and I can’t believe how they literally GLIDE on and are so pigmented which means I will basically be using these as concealers for the most part and blending with liquid foundations because they are soooo creamy! Can always count on NARS for that! Another plus about these foundation sticks, the opposite end of the product is a touch up blending brush head which means you can blend it in with the same tool! #IMSHOOK!! Definitely can’t wait to beat a whole face with this!
The second launch is where “attitude finds artistry” in the new ‘NARS Audacious Collection‘ featuring a total-control ‘Audacious Mascara’ which separates, lengthens and amplifies lashes in rich jewel tones from purple to a reddish brown to a navy (see above) to a black satin.. The collection is also accompanied by six ultra-saturated shades of ‘Audacious’ lipstick high in pigment and full in coverage! I got Vieke and Louise (see above!)

It’s so crazy, every week or two is like a new eye opening experience in the world of make-up for me! If you read a bit of my last post, you’ll now know that I recently learned how to put lashes on.. I have also been learning how to apply eyeshadow, liners, etc.. How to properly contour and all these other crazy amazing things that have really helped evolve the way I not only apply but look at makeup. It really is such an artistry.. Blending, painting, colour matching, enhancing, etc… I have to say this is probably one of my favourite beauty looks to date.. I believe it’s the most refined version of what I normally try to do and with the added touch of the extra voluminous lashes!!! For this face I used:
- @DermablendPro quick fix concealer
- @Armanibeauty Luminous Silk Foundation
- @UrbanDecayCosmetics Naked Heat Palette
- @YSLBeauty touche éclat under eye highlighter
- @Ardell_Lashes 250’s
- @MacCosmeticsCanada Dark Deep Bronzer as contour
- @NYXCosmetics_Canada Contour + Highlight Palette + Corset Lipstick
- @Lac.Beauty Brows by @jessicaesavedra
Last week I had the pleasure of attending a very intimate early evening event with Dyson at a chic AF* private residence in Yorkville! The event was in celebration of the new Dyson Hair Supersonic Blow Dryer!!! The evening consisted of cocktails, yummy bites, cute company, getting some one on one time with the product (which I got and loved, how lightweight and powerful the device was)…I also learned about hair-care and how properly blowdrying actually can help prevent your hair from breaking also help maintain hair health!!!.. Everything was so chic and fun and if the nothing could top the event… drum roll please…. Hair stylist to the stars, and most famously, the whole Kardashian klan, Jen Atkin!!!!! Otherwise known on the gram as @JenAtkinHair walked in!! She walked us through some key summer looks that are easily do-able with the Dyson Supersonic and perfectly pair with her range of Ouai hair products (available @ LAC & CO)!!!!! Tony and I sashay’d are way over to Jen after her lovely speech to the crowd and because, earlier in the week Celebrity make-up artist Patrick Ta was at Tony’s Salon LAC & CO, he told her that we would be there and so we got to connect and take some fun pics with miss hunty!!!! What a fun night and great way to start the weekend!! I can’t wait to try a Dyson Supersonic in the privacy of my own home so I can get my hair all crazy and really learn how to maintain my hair!
