[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’]

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!

Getting in gear for The Makeup Show NYC!!

My 2nd favourite time of year is back (the first of course is summer)!  This weekend is TMS NYC and it’s my one must attend event for the year.  I just love taking all those seminars, all those beauty products and meeting all my blogging buddies! : )

And what’s great is that this is the biggest TMS and they have released an app for iPhone/iPad/Android, which is pretty damn great.  It can get pretty chaotic, especially now they have expanded.  I’ve already downloaded it and have my seminars all lined up.

So check out the info on the event and the app!!!

I’m heading there on Sunday.  Who’s going??? Hail mih out!

Laters!
