Hi Everyone :) Update on my life

This is not a post for make up.. it has not much to do with it in fact.. this is an update from my life. I am letting you know this in case you are not interested in my personal life. So keep reading if you are interested as to why i was away for so long...
Oh my... it has been so long... I can't even believe i am doing this right now. This is going to be a typical but not a typical for MY blog, post. this post will contain no make up pictures just an update on my life. I feel i owe you guys so many apologies and i owe you so many posts with make up. I have such amazing fans and you mean so much to me, you always made me feel great even when the days were worse, you have always brought my spirits up when i was sad and when i felt lonely. I miss you and i am very sorry i was away for so long... i swear it was never my intention. I did not do it by choice... in fact i had no choice and my life went to complete s*** for a while.
I have gone through a lo since my last post in May... in fact during that time i was already in a tough situation but i was still able to do what i love because even though everything was taken away from me i still had my make up and i still had a camera.. after that last post in May... there was no more hope, my camera was taken from me and the only thing left was make up... and that doesn't do the job if you want to post on the blog, does it...
well i feel like i should give you explanation to all this and this is why i am writing this.
my ex-boyfriend (ex-common in-law) and i split... went our separate ways (which i am now very happy about) and since i was in Canada all alone and i have invested everything in him and life with him, i was left with nothing when we split. he has demanded all the things that were ours to be his, and that included the camera.. :( since then i needed to find a place to live and find a job that would pay me because i didn't have a job at the time when i was with him because i was attending full time college, Make up school and then i was in full time co-op (unpaid) for my HR career. I feel i was cheated because he decided we should not be together right after we have decided i would quit my job that paid me.. so thats why i was not able to purchase camera and pay for internet.
Currently, I have a full time job that pays (i have worked very hard at my co-op position and they have given me a job) i have a place to live and it has internet (thats why i am able to write this:) and... i am in a relationship with the most wonderful man on the Earth...
he is truly the love of my life, has been here for me in the worst time of my life, first a friend whom i'd give everything for and now my dear boyfriend whom i'd give even more than everything for. He has been a solid support for me for the last few months and i don't know where i would be right now, who i would be right now if it was not for him and his love.
I still don't have a camera and this is why i am not able to create a post with make up but i am slowly but surely saving money for it and i know i will be able to post some Make-Up Posts for you guys....

anyway ... if you want to contact me personally please e-mail me at k_sklodowska@hotmail.com otherwise feel free to leave a comment below.. i'd love to hear from you again.. like i said I HAVE MISSED YOU SOOOOOO MUCH!!!! <3 <3 <3

Soon... Sunday is the last day which i will have a camera available for my use. so i really do not know how often i will be able to upload anything :( makes me so sad and unfortunately i am not able to get a new camera just now... :( Maybe I will be able to borrow some kind of decent one from a friend. I don't know all i know is that i am sorry that this is hapening.

Here is what i came up with the other day to post on the MakeUpGeek website. I called it Golden Emerald because i used gold and greens from MAC to create it :)
I hope you like it :)







Products I used:
MAC Bare Study Paintpot
MAC Goldmine all over lid
MAC Humid crease
MAC Black Tied outer corner
MAC Vanilla inner corner and highlight
MAC Blacktrack Fludiline as eyeliner(top and bottom)

So here it is :) i hope you like it and hope to hear from you... again im very sorry for such little amount of posts, i hope you can understand and allow me to get my act together with my personal life. i need to get to a place where i have a constant internet connection and a camera :) hopefully that will be soon :D

Eye Glasses Make Up

Hello Everyone,

Like promised i am posting a make up for glasses wearers :) It's not a definition nor the only way to do it and the only colours to wear. What i'm trying to demonstrate is the general tricks and tips for those of you who wear glasses and what your make up to show better :)

here is the make up with glasses:


and here without:


To accomplish make up that will allow your eyes to be visible and bright through the frames try and follow these tips:
1. Make sure your eyebrows are nicely shaped and defined, they will frame your eyes and will contrast the frame of your glasses
2. Make sure that you have no dark circles under your eyes to make your eyes brighter behind the glass
3. Curl your eyelashes! It will make sure your eyes seem more open and at the same time larger
4. Highlight under your eyebrow, firstly to define your brows even more and secondly to brighten your eye up
5. Avoid dark colours of eyeshadows, dark colours make your eyes look smaller
6. Define your eyeliner, it will define the frame of your eye, making them more visible
7. Brighten up your bottom lid and waterline. Here i used a silver-white eyeliner and white eyeshadow on bottom lid

following these steps will allow for your eye o stand out :) I wear glasses all the time and i definitely see a difference when i do and when i don't wear make up. I mostly wear just mascara and that usually helps open up my eye but following these tricks will definitely make a much bigger difference :)

some products i used: Mascara - L'Oreal Voluminous, MAC fluidline in blacktract, MAC eyeshadows (can't remeber exactly which ones :P sorry lol), UD brow box in honey pot, Ben Nye iced gold, NYX Jumbo Pencil in White

good luck

I hope to hear from you :D

I'm back :) - MUG - Glasses Look -

Hi my lovelies :)

did you miss me and my corniness lol

i'm back and like i promised: i'm back better and stronger :)
today i'm going to quickly update you on what's new in my life in terms of make up
well first of all i'm going to invite you to see my Fantasy Island look i've created for MakeUpGeek (click on the name to see the look)
all the details on what products i used are also on there and more views of this look:



i hope you check it out and i hope you like it :)
if for any reason you can't see it, let me know and i will repost all the pictures and details on here.

so here is that

next thing:
I don't know how often i will be able to post on my blog but i PROMISE that i will TRY and make a 1-2 post per week. Currently i'm not home from 7am till 7 pm because of my work (which by the way i absolutely looooooooove :) you will probably see me mention it quite few times, since i talk about it so often to everyone else around me :P and on weekends i will be most likely doing my make up classes.. so thats why i don't have a lot of time... the next point adds to this point

also when it comes to my actual post.. they might LOOK different, i'm not sure how to explain it other than the old photographer has retired and i need to find a new one lol, so the pictures might look slightly (if at all) different and i don't know how often i will be able to work with my new photographer

my YouTube channel is still going to be up and running, again i need to find someone that will take pictures (if you guys know like tips or something on how to take your own pictures i would really appreciate it, i know most of you do and i can't understand how you do it, i feel like i FAIL at it lol)

alright, so this is all about my life in terms of make up

on a Sunday i will post a blog about how to do your eye make up if you are wearing glasses :) i hope you will enjoy it :D

i hope you have a wonderful weekend and promise me you will have some fun within the next couple of days :) I know i will :P

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to those who celebrate it this Sunday !!!

love you guys!!

hello and sorry for being away...

hi everyone

As you have noticed i was not on my blog for quite a bit and i feel terrible, i really do.... i kind of wanted to appoligise to all of you and kind of wanted to update you on what's up. right now my life has changed drastically and it's very hard for me to deal with a lot of things and i am having a very hard time picking up a make up brush right now... all i can promise you is that there will be a post soon, that i have made a while back but never published it, so stay tuned for that, but any new ones i'm really going to have to find strength from within me to get myself up and pick up a make up brush... i am not quite ready to say what has happened in my life, i'm getting there, i'm close to being... OK... i just need a bit more time to grieve. That's all for now, i hope You'll keep on coming, i really care about you and dont want to loose you as blog friends and followers

lots of love for you my lovelies and i hope all of you are happy

Brown Eyed Beauties

Hello Lovely Brown Eyed Beauties :)

AND BLUE AND GREEN AND HAZEL AND GREY lol Don't worry this make up tips will work for all of you :D
I have received a request from my friend to make a post on how to bring out brown eyes and how to make them spark! :) and i love the challenge! haha
I myself don't have brown eyes, as you know, therefore a bit of photoshop and anything can be done :P

here is a simple smokey purple eye that i believe works great for all brown eyes no matter what the skin colour is, works for light and dark skin :)







what i used was the 120 palette to achieve it.

Here are my suggestions about what specific colours to use to achieve the bright brown eye:

For light skin tones i would use lavender colours and muted purples otherwise it may bring out the unwanted imperfections of the face, fig 1 by MAC is good option because its matte, muted and dark and MAC's Beautiful Iris its a nice lavender colour, also UD's AC/DC which is a dark purple for smokey eye

For darker skin tones i would go all out and use bright purples, light but still visible purples :) try: MAC's Vibrant Grape or Creme de Violet and UD's Ecstasy which is a light purple (make sure to wear good base underneath to make the colour stand out)

that's it for purples, other colours i love to use on brown eyes are SIVERS! they make your browns sparkle uncontrollably HAHA
If you don't want to wear silver eyeshadow, you can even use it as an accent for example: silver eyeliner, when doing a natural or brown look :)

other than that blues, teals, and greens work well

and... i know that not too many people like pinks, for many reasons, they are hard to find and they are hard to match with your skin, but when you do get a nice pink try and work it :)

for light skin use lighter tones of pink and for darker skin use darker, brighter tones of pink:)

I can't tell you what to use and what not to use these are just suggestions and i used MAC and UD as examples because they are easy to find and you can match a good colour with any of them because these colours are available to look at on line, don't feel like you have to use these brands :D

I hope this was helpful for you :) I will be posting tutorials for blue, green, gray and hazel eyes also :)
Thanks for reading and commenting :D

First day @ Make Up Academy :D

Hi Everyone :)

Many of you by now know i have just started my make up school!!! i'm absolutely in love with the program already and i had so much fun the first day.. omg.. where to start???... there is so many thing i want to tell you and i have no idea where to start haha
alright so from the beginning:
i started looking into make up colleges about 3-4 months ago but nothing seemed to interest me because the course was either too long or it was not concentrated mainly on make up artistry or it was just out of my price range... :S
so i started looking at academies! i found few that i was interested in and i scheduled orientations with them to find out more and choose the one that would suit me best! :) i finally found THE ONE!!!! i'm not going to mention the name of it because i did not ask my program coordinator whether i could do so, i might ask later and let you know :)
so from the beginning i really liked my program coordinator and i loved what the school had to offer, they were very concentrated on make up artistry.
the courses i choose came in a bundle which made it cheaper in the long run. i believe there is a beginner make up course then there is film and fashion make up, airbrush course, fantasy make up and permanent lashes extension (exciting!). the tuition also covers the starters kit for each of the courses :) and let me tell you, the kit itself is worth going to the school HAHA :) just kidding! lol but really on Thursday (which was my first day) we got our make up cases.. FULL of MAC AND MUFE cosmetics! IT WAS BETTER THAN A CHRISTMAS MORNING!!!!!!!!!! you will see later on what was in the case, in my soon to come videos :) thats is also very exciting :)
The other 2 girls that are taking the same courses at the same time are also very lovely :) we clicked the first day we met and even had a lunch together at Timmies :) yes, only 2 other girls, lol the academy wants to have minimal classes to give as much attention to individuals as possible (that is another reason as to why i chose that school) out trainer is very nice also and very knowledgeable :) she has worked for many cosmetic companies in the make up artistry department so she is definitely going to fill our heads with amazing information and tricks as well as teach us great techniques and make up ethics :) oh one more thing, its rather funny, hehe we got a rubber face to practice on lol i named mine Sally sort for Salmacis :) i will introduce you to her later on :)
i have learned so much the first day and i will do my best to share that knowledge with you in my videos that i am planning to start posting very soon :D

Thanks for stopping by and reading :)

Lovebird - Kaiu

Hello Everyone :D

Today i am posting a make up which was inspired by our new family bird. it's a love bird and it's name is Kaiu :) It's loud and very cute haha! One day i did just a simple teal and green make up (you can see on upper lid) and when i went to see Kaiu I realized that the colours match him perfectly except for my make up was missing the bright blue colour which is underneath Kaiu's wings, I decided to add it along with some white colour to separate the colours and that's what came out of it :)



Products used:
UDPP
MAC e/s Aquadisiac
MAC e/s Green Smoke
MAC e/s Vanilla
Ben Nye pigment in Cosmic Blue
Ben Nye pigment in Sun Yellow
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk
MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack
GOSH Extreme 2 Step Mascara

here are other views:





I hope you like this one :)
I was not able to get a proper picture of my bird because he is such a "chicken" every time i wanted to take a picture he would fly away and i was not able to catch his colours on the camera. So here is a picture of a bird that looks just like him:


http://fireflyforest.net/firefly/2006/07/26/blue-peach-faced-lovebird/

Favourites of the Month - Part II and III - 3 Body and 3 Hair Products

Hello Everyone!

This is a continuation of the 4 part series on my favourite products of month March. In part 2 i will talk about favourite Body products. I did use them, and my reviews are based on my actual experience, sorry for the lack of actual images though, i am not at home to take pictures :P and i wanted to post this already, since it's the last day of March :) DO YOU KNOW WHAT THAT ALSO MEANS??? MY FIRST CLASS OF MAKEUP SCHOOL IS TOMORROW!!! :D YYYYAAAAAAAYYYYYY!!!
haha anyway... so the 3 Favourite Body Products for March are:

1. Each Peach from LUSH

http://www.lush.ca/shop/products/body/massage-bars/each-peach-(and-twos-a-pair)

obviously i don't have to expand on this product because everyone knows how excellent Lush products are :) just briefly why it was my favourite of March: it really moisturized my skin and it is so nice to put on. It melts on your body so you can evenly distribute it, and it smells delicious :) not like peaches though :S but like ORANGES :) yum :) It gave my body the moisture it needed on the cold weather (it contains Shea Butter and Cocoa Butter) and also putting it on my skin in the morning awaken my senses (smells like fresh fruit) which allowed me to be fresh and awake on a cold, dark morning. Price is very reasonable, because it last long, $8.95.

2. St. Ives Apricot Scrub

http://www.walgreens.com/dbimagecache/07704310472_450x450_a.jpg

I usually buy this scrub in a bigger container just because not only i love it, but also my boyfriend does :P in our house it goes pretty fast :) its excellent for face as well as for body, and as my boyfriend would probably like to add "excellent to exfoliate your face before shaving", so ladies can use it to exfoliate they skin on their legs, for example :) I use it everyday because it is quite gentle on your skin, and i have pretty delicate skin, I don't scrub for long though because it might leave my face looking red for a while after the shower. It has a very pleasant smell and i am not even afraid to use it softly on my eye area. Very inexpensive for a large size, depending on where you get it, it may cost you as little as $4.

3. Glove me Tender Hand Cream by Bath and Body Works

http://www.spabeautyproducts.com/uploaded_images/Tru-Blue-Spa-Products-764206.jpg

At one point in my reviews you will realize that I am a total Shea Butter freak :P I loooooove Shea Butter, it is just such an amazing ingredient :) i buy certain things just because they contain it. I have a very sensitive skin and i get easily irritated by certain products that's why the soothing qualities of Shea Butter are so lovely :) This hand cream of course! contain Shea Butter also along with other wonderful ingredients that keep your hands soft during cold, dry days. It smells a little citrusy and you really need just a tiny drop on your hands, great payoff! even though the price might be shocking for a hand cream, trust me it will last a really long time :) SPF 15 is also great since it protects your skin from aging, and protects you from damaging qualities of sun rays, great product to use all year long :) price: $15.

This concludes my 3 Favourite Products of March for Body
✧✧✧




Now onto 3 Favourite Products of March for Hair :)

1. Matrix Essentials So Silver Shampoo

http://www.lookfantastic.com/Images/Products/16229f.jpg

Since I die my hair blonde, i need a shampoo that will help my colour treated hair from yellowing, this shampoo is excellent for that very reason. You can actually see the difference it makes. You shouldn't wash your hair with it everyday because its quite strong and might strip your hair from its natural oils if you use it too often. When i wash my hair with my regular shampoo my hair seems much more dull and yellow, then when i wash it with So Silver, it actually gives you that silver glow to your hair colour. The shampoo is a dark purple colour but it turns quite white as soon as it lathers up :) it must also contain some kind of conditioning ingredients because my hair feels soft after washing it even without conditioner, i still use a conditioner but i don't feel like i really have to. The smell is quite gross however... i dunno... to me it smells like fresh picked tomatoes LOL i know weird huh?! :P the price is quite high too (i think it cost me about $18) but it last for a long time since you only use a little bit 2-4 times in a week. Despite the price and the smell i would not hesitate to repurchase it.

2. Got 2b Smooth Operator Lustre Lotion

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_zqi4jDHrSEk/SRkM0x7Jl_I/AAAAAAAAAe0/NPxg10jWTh4/s400/got2be+smooth+operator.jpg

IT HAS A CHARM!!! SO CUTE! BUT obviously NOT the reason why it is my favourite HAHA. It smells FANTASTIC, kind of fruity, maybe candy-like almost, just wonderful :) my bf loves that smell also, he comments on it A LOT! just as a side note the hair spray from that line smells just as good, weird because hair sprays usually smell awful! Back to Lotion, it works really well. It untangles my hair and makes them soft... sooooo soft! I was skeptical about it because it was so inexpensive and all that fancy packaging... seemed like what was inside was just going to be... lets say... not so good. But it turned out great! When i bought it, i think it was on a major sale, because i got it for like $4.

3. Sunsilk Daring Volume Volumizing Spray

http://www.overstockdrugstore.com/product_images/b/079400334886.jpg

This product i got later on in March and i just fell in love with it from the first use. It definitely gives you volume, lots of it, no questions about it, the best part of it however, it made my hair look fresh and "just-blow-dried" all day long, bouncy and shiny, no hairspray needed! It was amazing! smells pretty good to, nothing too irritating :) i don't know the price because i got it from my boyfriends sister :S sorry...

This concludes me second and third part of Favourites for March, stay tuned for part 4 :)

I hope you are enjoying my reviews so far :) Thank you for reading and commenting, thank you for following and for being so sweet :D

Favourites of the Month - Part I - 10 FACE products

Hey Everyone!

I was so busy last two days and didn't even have a chance to go on my blog!!! :O HORRIBLE!!!! but the weekend started and i am ready to blog again :)

I have so much to share with you guys, i went shopping and i want to do a haul and i have so many products reviews and they just keep piling in my head lol so i decided to do this first...

I wanted to start presenting my favourite products of each month, i know that i didn't do one in february but please forgive me :P
In this part one of this 4 part series i will be talking about my favourite FACE products.

but before that!!! let me introduce you to my work space :D



it shows all that is usually on it, my cotton swabs which i must have at all times, they are my friend :P and my vision board! i sometimes put a make up or hair idea on it and recreate it when i have time. i have pictures of places that i want to go to one day on there too, but you can hardly see it on the top left corner. the "locked" drawer with my make up (i live with 3 other teenager girls!!! :P JUST KIDDING!!! LOVE YOU MAIA, TIFFANY AND BRITTANY!!!!!) that drawer is never locked lol :P
my brushes, a very small collection (not for long) and pallets
oh and of course a picture of my lovely boyfriend :) i need to make a post for/about him one day because he is the photographer, and this blog would not exist if it wasn't for him :* :* :*

here is my crafty creativity coming out:



my friend Sadia found this box (used to be a plain wooden box) and i turned it this, DONT WORRY lol it's not done haha i will work on it a bit more :)
I like it and i decided to keep my pigments in it :D




and the pink flower i got from my boyfriend's mom :) She knows how much i love orchids :D



ALRIGHT.... on with the program!

Favourite Products of February - PART I - FACE

I ENCOURAGE YOU TO CLICK ON ALL THE SMALL PICTURES TO SEE THE LARGER VERSIONS :)



and now individual along with the reviews:



lets start of with this Cover Girl Lipgloss in Pink Positive (i love the name lol), i really liked this lipgloss in March because it has a very delicate pink colour which was great for everyday wear, in March the weather is still not so great so its lip balm qualities kept my lips look and feel great. The smell and taste is so refreshing, it has a spear mint flavour :)

here is a swatch



next is




MAC's Woodwinked e/s. I really like this e/s because it is great to wear it just by itself with some mascara, and i don't know about you, but i in the middle of late winter/early spring, like to get my sleep so waking up in the morning 40 minutes earlier to do a fancy make up is not in my schedule... i just like to put one or two eyeshadows, mascara and go... this one served me pretty well during my lazy mornings, which you can tell because i am definitely hitting the metal pan lol it's very pigmented and multidimensional therefore it looked like i am wearing many shades of brown colours :)

swatch



next is



MAC's FIX + Skin refresher/Finishing Mist
This product, i feel, will be a favourite of each month haha :P it just works for all seasons. In March we get those rainy days and without the Fix + all my make up would be running down my face. In the warmer weather it refreshed your skin and and provides it with vitamins, at the same time making your make up look more natural. Its good to use with pigments also, It makes them look more vibrant, and i could talk about this product all day but i'm gonna stop here! LOL

next in line is




The depoted version of NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk
I have already talked about this product in my previous post so here is just a reason as to why it was a favourite in March. And the answer is simple, i like to bring back spring by wearing a lot of bright spring coloured make ups and Milk has helped me achieve the looks i desired :) giving me a nice smooth white base underneath my bright colours :)



swatch



then we have





my favourite eyeliner brush :) got if from Sephora, pink edition :) CUTE!
I can't imagine doing my make up without it. Great just GREAT eyeliner brush, its my favourite of March because i got it in March and i absolutely fell in love with it from the first use :) .. again, a possibility of being the every month fave!

and a close up



next is...




MAC's Fluidline in Blacktrack
I really like this product because you can really build it up. I mean in March wanting to wear all these spring colours i wanted to be able to wear a little less eyeliner to make the looks softer, more wearable and this eyeliner definitely helped me achieve that.







here is a swatch, the line was done with the Sephora eyeliner brush, mentioned above



next




NYX Blush in Natural
Again i talked about this blush in one of my previous posts therefore i will just say why i liked it in March, the answer is simpler than you think. ITS BECAUSE IM EXTREMELY PALE IN WINTER :P and the brush is of the lightest colour i ever tried and it still shows quite nicely :)

see swatch in my previous post (MUG Store)



next is...



Ben Nye Pigment in Golden Apricot
I love this colour it is my favourite shade and have been looking for one like this for a very long time and i finally found one. Wonderful for natural make up, which i love to wear and a good thing about this pigment is that you can really dress it up, great for work, because its not too bright but it still shows its beautiful shimmers :) i just love it!!!

(wearing bright looks is great but for work sometimes its not appropriate hence the browns and apricot colours :P)

swatch



then we have



which is my wonderful Faces Perfecting Skin Smoother which makes for a great base underneath liquid or powder foundation
It is so velvety i absolutely adore it. It wears all day plus its moisturizing and my skin needs all the moisture it can get on cold March days :)

here is a little drop to show you how it looks



ok almost done, hang in there ok? :) i just really want you to have a good idea of what's worth buying. i always like to see someone else use it before i buy it because it is a better chance i might like it :D

last but not least!



Wonderful Clinique Superbalanced Makeup
I know that Nikki did a review on this product back in February, as one of her February Favourites, i remember commenting on how i love the foundation so here it is :) I love it because it moisturizes my face, it covers it quite well yet it feels as if i put on just a light moisturizer :) it gives my skin all the hydration i need in March and it is very easy to put on.

swatches

without a flash

ALRIGHT so we are done! haha
I honestly hope i didn't bore you to death lol and that you find this post helpful :)

HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND :D :D :D
XOXO
