How to Contour for beginners

Hey everyone, welcome back to another post. I am happy I was able to get this post out, this post was long overdue. For today’s post I wanted to talk about how to contour. Contouring is a application technique used to create shadows and bring out your facial structure. This helps makes certain parts of the face stand out and also appear slimmer. The highlight part of contour and highlighting helps bring out the glow in your face of where the sun naturally hits.

Basic Contouring

So first I want to talk about the basics with contouring. When it comes to contouring you want to choose a shade that is one shade lighter down from your skin tone. Also another tip is knowing your face shape. One thing I notice a lot is that some people tend to contour the same. Your not going to want to do that. Your going to want to determine your face shape first so you know what areas to contour. For example, I have an heart shaped face so I try to always bring out my cheek bones and pay attention to around my chin area. Another tip is making sure to use the right product. But this would be all up to you!

Steps to contouring
  1. Prime with a primer also a moisturizer for your face.
  2. Apply your favourite foundation. With a damp beauty blender.
  3. To contour, your going to want to follow the structure and shadows of your own face shape. If you want to define your jaw line your going to want to blend powder or cream along your jawline. If you want to bring out your cheek bones follow the same steps. Here’s another tip if you love your nose you do not need to contour your nose!
  4. Set your make up, remember to along your T zone. Your going to want to do this with a setting powder. After setting with a powder you can set with a setting spray. Your going to just spray this and this will bring your makeup altogether!

I hope this post was helpful, I tried to get as detailed as possible. I hope you all enjoyed today’s post. If any of you have any questions about contour and highlighting please leave a comment. I am always happy to help and I always love reading your comments and questions. I must say contour and highlighting (well more contouring) is one of my favourite parts to a completed makeup look. I love bringing out my natural cheek bones and just playing around with it. What are some of your favourite products for contour and highlighting? Do you find it easy or difficult when it comes to contouring? Please leave a comment, like and please share! Also if you haven’t checked out my last post you can find that HERE.

Brow Hack

Hey everyone, welcome back to my blog. For today’s blog post I wanted to share how I do my brows. My regular routine I’ve been sticking to for like forever. Now I just want to share my routine what works for me. I just wanted to share tips because this might just work for someone else or at least give them a idea on how to do their brows. Now to be completely honest with you all I never knew how to do brows, I sucked. I now know but am no make up artist, like I said I know what works for me. Now for my hack am just going to explain my routine and steps.

Base

Some of you might know or not, but I am combination skin type. So this means am oily in my t zone. This causes my forehead area to get oily throughout the day. And this would always cause my brows and makeup in general to slide right off. Honestly this was so annoying to me, but I realized I just needed the right brow products and primer for my skin concerns. It’s all about laying down a great base for longer wear.

Products

So you have your base, and all you need are the right products. My hack for holding down my brows and to help grip my brows is my primer. The Becca matte pore less primer. I have been using this product for awhile now and I love it. The consistency is matte and a glue like texture so it for sure does what it says. Applying this I found helps matte any oils I have around my brows and also helps keep my brows in place when I add product.

Next, the brow pencil I use to do my brows is the Benefit brow pencil. I love their product I have never had any problems and also I find it so much easy using this pencil. The product I use to use to do my brows was Anastasia. I have used the pomade and pencil and it just wasn’t for me.

After applying the matte base, my brows are so much easier to apply product to. I brush through my brows and apply! I just want to make a disclaimer that when apply a lot of this product it can leave white streaks. So a little goes a long way! After I am done all that I finish off with the benefit brow gel. That is another product I am loving.

This is my usual brow routine whenever I do my brows. I would say throughout the day my brows stay in place much better then me just applying the pencil right away without a base. I hope you all enjoyed reading today’s post. Look out for me uploads during this week. Also what are some brow products you all enjoy? Or even live by? You absolutely won’t switch from ?

On the go 5 – 15 Min Beauty Routine

Hey everyone, welcome back to another blog post. I hope everyone is had a great weekend. For today’s blog post I wanted to do my beauty routine. And I thought of to post my 5 -15 min beauty routines. This is a great post for those beauty college students or even moms like me that is on the go. Now since becoming a second time mom I have absolutely no time to put on make up.

For example the other day I actually had to ask myself “do I even know how to apply makeup still?”. Yeah it’s that bad, I miss those times. I see all these social influence’s moms looking fab and I need their secrets on how. But then again have to remind myself it’s all a lie! LOL not realistic at all. Now when I am in a rush I need to at least do these steps!

Concealer

Now since am a busy mom of two, I have no time to even perfect foundation anymore and do a whole beauty routine, so concealer has become a back up. I actually do not have bad skin at all so I always use concealer and do quick touch ups on my face. My skin looks great and it still can breath throughout the day. Now for this trick you’d need a great coverage concealer.

Beauty Routine
Brows

For some odd reason I never before was brow obsessed. Now I have to at least do my brows if am going out. If I don’t get to apply concealer this has to be at least done. I feel like doing brows just frames a girls face and hides everything else. This I always try and get done when I am in a huge rush to go out. And sadly I always feel like am in a rush.

Lipstick or Gloss

Okay, every girl has at least this on. Even if I don’t got my lipstick on I have to have my Rihanna fenty gloss. To be honest lately I haven’t been wearing lipstick. And I don’t know if it has to do with me not putting on a full face anymore. But I’ve haven’t touched any lipstick for awhile. I have tried sometimes putting some on and I always end up taking it off . I love using the Fenty gloss though because I love how clear and simple yet tinted it is. It gives a beautiful finish and it actually keeps my lips moisturized.

Beauty Routine
Lashes

So basically if concealer is out of my timing I always almost always have to have my lashes. Honestly if I had to name my top two I can’t leave the house without doing it would be lashes and brows. Anyways before I was into lashes but I love wearing them most of the time now. I love how much they bring out my eyes without having to wear a full face or even eyeshadow. I have them last long which keeps me from spending so much money on buying them.

Thanks everyone for reading today’s blog post. I hope my 5 to 15 minute beauty routine some what helps you. This is what 90% of the time I do now a days because I am always in a rush. You don’t specifically have to follow my routine, you can find what works for you. If you haven’t got to read my latest post please do so you can find this HERE.

3 Things that get me in the Christmas spirit

Hey everyone, welcome back to another post. Finally I am getting a Christmas related post up. I am feeling the Christmas spirit these days ! And now I my post you will get to know the three things that get me in this mood. Now before I start I am so happy I got to get a post up this week. Also I know my normal post days are Monday’s and Thursdays but lately I’ve been way off my posting schedules. And because of that don’t just lookout for those post days but just know I will at least put out a post once a week. Or well at least try to that’s my goal.

Music

Who doesn’t enjoy Christmas music? I know my husband doesn’t as much so I know their is quite a few of people who don’t. But that’s gets me in the spirt for the end of November. I swear as soon as it’s November am ready for those Christmas songs. Although their quite repetitive I never ever get tired of hearing Christmas music. I love putting it on through out the day while I clean and get things done and I always love letting it play while I put my girls to sleep at night. I can tell you now am for sure going to miss those jingles once December is over.

Lights

Lights are another way of feeling good! From ever since I was a kid I love seeing those Christmas lights up. I must say it’s enjoyable while driving throughout Toronto especially downtown also. I love seeing the different colors and decorating ideas each house has. My oldest loves seeing all the different lights while we are out and about. This gets me in a great mood.

Giving

Now I know for some the downside to Christmas is spending. Trust me it hurts my pockets by November knowing the amount of money I’ll be losing or the possibility of even using credit cards around that times hurt my head. But I love the feeling around this time of giving. I already love the joys of shopping and I love it more giving to family and buying for my two girls. I feel it’s even more exciting at this age when their kids. I always try to remember to take in this time as much as possible when their this small because before you know it they will be teenagers.

And those are my three things that get me feeling good around Christmas. Thank you all for reading tonight’s post. What are some things that keep you going around Christmas time?
