November is finally here and I have been impatiently waiting for my Sephora VIB Sale email. I have a ton of stuff in my virtual Beauty Bag that I have been anxious to try! Twice a year, Sephora has it’s VIB sale you know every little bit of savings counts when buying beauty products.  I actually like the fact that this sale comes a few weeks before Black Friday so that I can shop in peace and not have to worry about keeping track of 10 other sales.  

So here are the details of the Sephora VIB Sale:

  • Of course you have to be a Sephora VIB card holder.  
  • Sale lasts from November 11th to 14th.
  • Discount: 20% off everything in store and online.
  • Coupon can be used multiple times in store.
  • VIB Rouge members already had early access to the discount from November 4th to 7th and they get use their coupon again from 11/11 to 11/14.

As mentioned in my previous post, holiday time is the best time of year to try out skincare and beauty products as companies have created holiday gift sets that are amazing! These often have special packaging, limited edition colours or just deluxe sizes of their most popular items.  The Sephora VIB Sale is a great way to try out a new brand or to build up your collection.

Nothing To Disclose

So…..

I have been in a little bit of a mascara rut.  I have been absolutely uninspired by the new mascaras coming out in the drugstores.  They kinda look like repackaged versions of themselves.  I have not been inclined to buy for months! Of course I have my go-to favourites, but I always want to try something new.  I typically use my drugstore mascaras for everyday use.  I keep my pricier mascaras for weekends or going out.  Therefore…I decided to pick up one of the products on my wishlist. Enter the Ardency Inn Best of Eyes Kit.

Ardency Inn Best of Eyes Holiday 2016 Kit

I initially was going to the Modster Big Instant Lash Enhancing Mascara, which is US$25, but while browsing the ardencyinn.com website, I noticed that they were selling a kit with four FULL sized products that included their newest mascara for US$39.  I did not stutter.  Straight to my shopping cart.  I also added a second Manuka Honey Pigment.  This kit is supposed easy to use and longwearing with two waterproof eye liners.  All of the products are in their permanent collection and can be purchased individually (but why would you do that with this deal?)  This is a great way to dip your toe into the brand.

Here are some closeup pictures of what’s inside.

Bronze Skin Tutorial: From summer to fall & beyond

My last makeup look for the summer! Browsing  through Instagram and the first makeup artist that I ever started paying attention to, Sam Fine, posted this look that he had done on Queen Latifah.

QL Sam Fine Bronze look

Sam Fine’s book was the first one that I bought years ago, even before I bought Kevyn Aucoin’s book.  Who is this black guy doing beautiful makeup?   Sam has been working with Queen Latifah for years, on numerous campaigns and photoshoots and I just love the Queen.  A true, true pioneer in the rap game and I love that she can go hard in the ring with any dude and in the next step, be very feminine.

Anyway, Sam posted this photo of the Queen that was shot by Annie Liebowitz and I was in love! Super bronzed and sunkissed.  In this video tutorial, I will show you how I achieved this look, that is really just about the skin and giving it that glow.  This would be great all year round even when it is cold.  As a dark skinned woman, colder weather leaves me looking dull and ashy.  So some extra glow is no problem for me.  If you have oilier skin, you can tone down the amount of glow by putting it in select places, like the top of the cheekbones.

So here is the look and the tutorial that will take you from summer right through to the end of the year!
