Step by step makeup application

Hello, beauties!

Not so long ago I didn’t know how to apply makeup and I had no idea what the steps were. I was doing it no matter how and it didn’t necessarily look good. I am getting better at this and I thought I could share with you some tricks that I learned up to now. Enjoy! 🙂

 

  1. Start with a clean face and apply an Instant Lifting Serum. This will reduce the appearance of any fine lines and wrinkles.
  2. Continue with a moisturizer. It is very important to show your skin some love. I used the Hydrating Day Cream.
  3. Don’t forget to prime. They say that ”It’s a crime not to prime!” 😀 and that is because the primer helps your makeup to stay in place longer, it covers your pores and protects them from the makeup that you apply on your face. It also keeps the oil under control: Touch Glorious Face Primer
  4. Next thing is the foundation. I used the Touch Mineral Liquid Foundation. (PS: I can color match you in no time 🙂 )
  5. To highlight and cover the dark circles under the eyes, use a concealer that is one to two shades lighter than your foundation. I used my Touch Mineral Skin Perfecting Concealer.
  6. To set the concealer and the makeup use a Translucent Setting Powder. This is color free which means that you can use as much as you want. 😀
  7. A makeup look is incomplete without the brows and I am obsessed with the Moodstruck Brow Obsession Palette.
  8. Next thing is your eye shadow. Use the colors that you want to create the perfect look for you. In this video, I used the Moodstruck Addiction Shadow Palette 2.
  9. To contour your face and give it a bit of sun kiss, go ahead and use a bronzer. Mine? The Sunset Beachfront Bronzer.
  10. Go ahead and apply the setting powder and/or a setting spray on your entire face to keep that makeup in place all day long.
  11. The mascara is as important as the brows. You cannot have your makeup done without a mascara. And I am in love with the new Moodstruck Epic Mascara + the fibers from the Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes+.
  12. Exfoliate your lips before lipstick application. Why? To have soft lips that will keep your lipstick in place longer. Make sure you moisturize them as well. To exfoliate I use Moodstruck Lip Exfoliator. To moisturize I use Lip Bonbons Tinted Lip Balm. And I finish my look with my favorite lipstick which is Moodstruck Splash Liquid Lipstick.

And…you are ready to go! If you enjoyed and think it is helpful please like and share!

Thanks for being here! xoxo

New Mascara – I’m in Love!

For several months I was used to the 3D Fiber Lashes Mascara Plus that gave the drama that I love so much without the fake lashes. As a Younique Independent Presenter, I am amazed by the products that the company presents us so often. One of these new products that will be available starting August 1st, 2017 is the Moodstruck Epic Mascara. If you are familiar with the 3D Fiber Lashes Mascara Plus  you know that this mascara is used in 3 steps: gel, fibers, and gel once again. But the new mascara is one step only however, the outcome is simply amazing. You can see my excitement in the video below (this was a Live video made on my Facebook page once I received my Moodstruck Epic Mascara):

 

The next video is my first time trying the Moodstruck Epic Masacara with the fibers from the 3D Fiber Lashes Mascara Plus . The outcome is fabulous, I can’t even hold my excitement every time I see my lashes. (The video is a Live that I made on my Facebook page):

 

Let me know if you ever tried the Younique 3D Fiber Lashes Mascara and how did you like it?

Thanks for passing by! xoxo

My lipstick? Splash Lipstick 💄 

Hello beauties! 

Summer is here and most of the times I don’t really want to wear a lot of lipstick. We know that in the summer we tend to drink more liquids and eat a lot of ice-cream so I don’t want to spend my time redoing my lips 👄 over and over again. 

What if I told you that there is one lipstick that I really like and that it stays in place for a long time even if you drink or eat? No, it’s not a lipstain. But it does last for quite some time. That is called the Splash Lipstick from my favourite makeup and skin care company. While I can’t guarantee that it will have the same effect on your lips, because we are all different, I can guarantee that if you don’t love it you can return it and get your money back. 

So, what do you think? 💜👄


You can check it out right below 😍:

Thanks for reading! Have a fabulous week!

Skin Care Routine

Soft Lips for a smooth lipstick application

Hello there!

How are you all? 🙂

Shall we talk about our lips today? I have dry lips and especially since I live in Montreal, QC. where the weather is rough most of the times, it’s been really challenging for me to have nice, soft lips. That means that I tried already a bunch of lip balms that didn’t really made a big difference. You see, I love wearing lipstick. I personally find that my makeup is not complete without it. But with my dry lips the lipstick wasn’t looking very nice on me. So, I was avoiding it most of the time or I was using it even though the lipstick was really clumpy on my lips.

However, I found a product that changed all that. First thing first: did you know that like your face and body, your lips need to be exfoliated as well? Well if you did, hurray for you! I had no idea! 😀

I came across the product that changed my makeup routine completely and let me use that perfect lipstick to be able to complete my makeup routine: the Moodstruck Lip Exfoliator. Made with sugar and shea butter, this lip exfoliator removes the dry cells from your lips, living you ready for your favourite lipstick application.

Check out my video to see before/after and for instructions on how to use this amazing product: Spoil your lips! #adoreherbundle 💋💜

You are welcome! 🙂 I hope you enjoy this just as much as I do!

About My Mission

Why I missed being a Younique Independent Presenter

I started to be a Younique Independent Presenter for a few months but I decided to quit. I got overwhelmed with life and I thought that cutting off Younique from my life will bring me some peace and quiet. Shortly after, I started to feel empty. Yes, I had more time for myself but I had nothing to do with my time. You see, working on my business was keeping me busy, but mostly it was keeping me happy. I never thought that talking about makeup and skin care, sharing makeup and skin care will make me feel good in any way. But it was more than this. It was the fact that as a Younique Independent Presenter, I felt like I was having a mission: make women happy! And now, that I was out of it, my mission was over and I went back to the “unhappy corner”. My sponsor was very understanding and she understood and put no pressure on me.

I went and started to buy makeup products from companies that I used prior to Younique. I got myself a new mascara, a new brow pallete and a new lip gloss. But…I hated them all! The mascara was so bad that I used it only a few times and I didn’t think twice before putting in the garbage. The brow pallete was making my brows look so fake that I was literally embarrassed to wear it outside and the lip gloss…so sticky! I went back to my sponsor to get myself some of the products that I loved from Younique and is like she knew that I was missing it so she talked to me about it. A real talk! She made me realize why I have to come back! Because I have to think about what makes me happy and that is only normal to feel overwhelmed once in a while but instead of walking away, I could just take a deep breath and move back for a few days. And so, that is what I did. I went back to Younique. I went back to my mission and to my happiness. So here I am, 4 months later, never thinking to quit my mission again! Am I rich? No, I am not! Am I happy with what I do? I couldn’t be more happy! I get to share what I love, talk about what I love, help and empower women that approach me about it. Not to mention that since I am at the yellow status I get my makeup and skin care products at 25% off. So I know for sure that what I use is not going to end up in the garbage.

Now that is what I call : Never give up on your dreams! Do what makes you happy and you will be able to share only positivity to those around you.
