#NO CONTOUR MAKEUP#

What is the latest craze in the makeup industry? What’s the one word you hear in almost every makeup tutorial?  

CONTOUR!!!

So I did a makeup application in which I didn’t contour at all.  I did however shape my brows as I cannot embrace those misshapen things, plus I didn’t apply any falsies.

So this is what I ended up with.

Here is my CONTOUR-LESS look!

My Nina joining in on the fun!

Nina is such a diva!

So I have on: Foundation, mascara, blush, shaped brows, lipstick.

             I think overall this look is good for an everyday easy application.  Look, I enjoy wearing falsies on a daily basis, even if it’s just on the outer half of my lash line .  I doubt I’ll go falsie-less on a permanent basis.

The whole post is about not contouring, and I think, I can embrace it.  Unlike many women, I don’t mind my big nose at all.  It doesn’t function whatsoever… having chronic sinusitis and all, but it’s there.  Anyway, would I stop contouring all together? Nope!  I think contouring is great!  Remember when every makeup artist would tell you to blend, blend and blend in their tutorials and so forth?  Well, that still holds true, but if you’re into contouring, please do it properly and BLEND  the CONTOUR.

And if you don’t contour at all, well, that’s your decision.  It’s not the end of the world if you’re indeed a minimalistic makeup user.

If you ARE into CONTOURING, please learn from the best makeup artist, Samer Khouzami and celebs like Lilly Ghalichi.

#JOICO HAIR REJUVENATING SYSTEM

A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to get a JOICO Hair Rejuvenating System Treatment.

As I was having my hair washed and treated, MiMi, a JOICO hair consultant was telling me how the treatment worked with each step.  It was very informative, and it was great knowing what was actually happening to your hair.  Found out that the treatment puts back the 19 amino acids your hair needs.

MiMi then gave me a pamphlet showing me how the JOICO treatment worked on each hair strand.

How it works

How it works

You’ll see that it’s a 4-step treatment.   It pretty much reconstructs your hair with real proteins and you can see in step 4 that products are available for you to purchase after your visit to the salon.  I’m not normally one to just believe in everything a product does, however this is a high-end product and not something mass-produced that you find in any store.  It’s definitely a quality product.  MiMi explained to me that very little product is actually needed due to it being concentrated.  So your shampoo & conditioner will last you very long.  However, nothing beats being pampered at the EDL Salon.

JOICO 4-step treatment has also been featured on;

#HANDS DOWN – THIS IS THE BEST MAKEUP ARTIST IN THE WORLD 💋💄

Good Morning Pouter!

As you may or may not know, I love contouring and highlighting. Well, not so much highlighting, but definitely contouring.

I often share photos on our Facebook page showing how I look before and after.

There is one makeup artist and yes only ONE that perfects the whole contouring application. He inspires me with his before and after photos on a daily basis. One can only dream of being as good as he is, when it comes to drawing lines on women’s faces, transforming their “canvases” into works of living and breathing gorgeous art!

He is:

The best part? He doesn’t do the whole less is more nonsense, but only because he knows how to apply the more! Fine line people, fine liquid line!

He is touring the world where people can attend his workshops. So if you’re lucky enough to go…. GO!
