In about 2 days, fall begins.  While I’m not thrilled at that, I’m already anticipating next year!

I want to post my absolute favourite look of the season, part of my summer peach chronicles.

Featuring Freelove Eye Shadow from Urban Decay! Love!

An all peach/coral look!  It features most of the products that I had in heavy rotation for the past few months!

  • Freelove by Urban Decay on the center of the upper eyelid – a stunning, medium-deep peach, with smooth shimmer and velvety/buttery texture
  • Perversion 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils by Urban Decay on the waterline
  • Cha Cha Façade cheek colour by Face Atelier
  • Paris Follies Larger Than Life Lip Gloss from NARS Cosmetics

Cha Cha on my cheeks! A review of Face Atelier Facade! #SummerPeachChronicles

[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’] NB: Nothing to declare! Product mentioned bought by me! Continuing with my summer coral obsession, here is a quick review of a product that I have wanted to pick up for a while.  I was introduced to the makeup brand Face Atelier at The Makeup Show a few years ago.  They are certainly a professional artists brand!! This Canadian-based company is well known in the industry for their high quality, silicone-based makeup.  Most of the makeup that we see in drugstores etc is either water- or oil based.  They are also well known for carrying Silicone-based makeup can be used on both dry and oilier skin types and it leaves a very smooth finish by laying on top of the skin and filling into pores and wrinkles (pretty much similar to a lot of the face primers out there).  Pro makeup artist Kevin-James Bennett used this on the cheek in a demo and I loved the effect on the skin!  One thing to note, just remember to use like products with like products.  Have you ever found that when you applied a primer and a foundation, the foundation slid off?  That sometimes happens with you pair a silicone based primer with a non-silicone foundation (especially water-based).   Try matching the base ingredients of your products and you should have no problem.

Anyway, I picked up the Face Atelier Façade in Cha Cha.

True dat!
