Hello lovelies,
This past Saturday, I was able to live out my teeny bopper dreams when I attended the NKOTBSB show in Chicago. I was beyond excited to see the New Kids because when they were really popular, I was too young to go to their concert. So I'd waited about 20 years for this night. I've seen BSB in concert a few times before, but was still excited nonetheless. The show was AMAZING!! I'd highly recommend checking it out and if I get the chance, I'll be going to another show. Here's a breakdown of my look for the night:

* Estee Lauder Double Wear in Tawny mixed with MAC F&B in C4
* MAC select cover-up in NW30
* MAC MSF in Medium/Dark
* MAC sheertone blush in Blush Baby
* MAC countour duo in Lightsweep/ Shadestar

* Vicorias Secret baked mineral eye shadow quad in Secluded Lagoon
* Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner in Zero
* Covergirl Lashblast in very black
* DUO eyelashes in Medium & Wispy

* NYX round lipstick in Pumpkin Pie
*NYX round lipgloss in FIG

FOTD - coloured eyeliner & velcro rollers!

Hello lovelies,
This is both a FOTD and a HOTD (hair of the day). I "borrowed" my sisters velcro rollers (and by borrow, I mean take them with me when I moved from Toronto to Chicago) and finally decided to try them out in my hair. I really loved this look, unfortunately, all that gorgeous volume and movement was gone in a couple of hours. My hair is just too thick and heavy to really hold a curl unless I use a lot of heat.

 Close-up, hope I didn't scare you!

The foundation is the perfect match for my skin tone but unfortunately, the SPF in it makes it white-out in photos!

* Estee Lauder Double Wear in Tawny (not diluted with moisturizer which I usually do since its too heavy)
* MAC Select cover-up in NW30
* NARS Orgasm blush
* MAC MSF in medium/dark

* MAC Paint Pot in Groundwork
* Annabelle Kohl eyeliner in Black applied to top lid
* Annabelle Kohl eyeliner in Emerald applied to lower lash line
* Covergirl Lashblast in Very Black
* ELF eyebrow kit in dark

* MAC Plushglass in Nice Buzz

TOMS - Another reason to love the brand

I felt like wearing a little color on my lids today, so I went with a romantic purple from my E.L.F. eyeshadow palette. I also added a little curl to my hair using my Metropolis 1" flat iron.

* Estee Lauder Double Wear in Tawny toned down with moisturizer
* MAC Select cover-up in NW30
* MAC blush in Dainty

* ELF eyeshadow palette (used a medium purple shade all over the lid)
* Annabelle kohl eyeliner in black

Memorial Day at Navy Pier

This past weekend was my first long weekend in Chicago. I took a trip down to Navy Pier to see the sights and enjoy the gorgeous weather!
 The beautiful Chicago skyline
 It was so busy!

Hope everyone had a fabulous and safe long weekend! xoxo

FOTD with Estee Lauder Double Wear

I recently purchased Estee Lauder's Double Wear foundation as my skin has been acting up and I needed something with more coverage than the MAC Face & Body which barely provides any coverage at all.
After doing some research, I decided to go with Double Wear in Tawny. I've been trying out different ways to apply it and I find it goes on best with a foundation brush. Since its a full coverage foundation, a little goes a very long way. I usually mix a little moisturizer into it so it doesn't look too cakey.

* Estee Lauder Double wear in Tawny (toned down with some moisturizer)
* MAC select cover-up in NW30
* MAC MSF in medium/dark
* MAC blush in Dainty

*Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner in Zero
* Covergirl Lastblast in very black

* Estee Lauder Pure Color lipstick in Boise de Rose
