My Signature Look (BLACKOUT)

This look will always be my favourite look. I wear this look very often and this is why I called this my signature look. It never gets old to me. Whenever I wear it and wherever I go with it, I always get compliments whether it was from a male or female. They will always tell me how I have really nice eyes and that they can't stop looking at it. It is the first thing they ever notice. Personally, I believe that eyes are very important features -- you want your pretty eyes to stand out; you are in a different world when you look at them. This look isn't hard to achieve at all. Very simple. It only consist of the colour black and a little bit of white. I just wanted to share with you my secret on how to really achieve this gorgeous dramatic smokey eye look that I love. It is very flattering! Have fun wearing it and goodluck! :)

Natalie Portman Black Swan Inspired Look

This look is inspired by the movie Black Swan. I really wanted to watch the movie but I haven't had the chance to watch it yet due to my busy working schedule. Anyway, this was a requested tutorial and I was a bit hesitant to do it because I have never ever done any costume makeup before as you can see when you visit my YouTube channel. I was scared and nervous of how this look will turn out but I guess it wasn't too bad afterall. This look would be perfect to wear out for Halloween! ;) I think it was a taddddddd bit scary still. 
It was not hard to achieve. I simply used the lightest foundation I have for my face since Natalie Portman in the movie was very pale. I took any liquid eyeliner to outline the shape of the wings around my eyes and then I coloured it  in with black gel pot liner. After, I used any black eyeshadow and simply pat it on top of my gel liner to set it so it becomes more matte. Then I used a white eye pencil liner to draw lines to define the feathery like wings and to also line my waterline. Last but not least for the eyes..I included glitters because I believe it create a more flattering look. 
For the lips, I used plum colour lip liner to line my lips, I used black eye pencil to create a shadow and then again I used a plum colour lipstick from Clarins #717 to go over the middle part of my lips.
Contouring for this look was very important because you have to contour at the right place of your face. You want to create a shadow that looks like your face is sunked in. 
I am not sure if I was clear at my explanation from everything I just wrote above so I have included a video to make it easier for you guys to be able to achieve! :) Enjoy and Toodles my dear!

Foundation Routine

Weightless Moisturizer: Powerful hydration in seconds. Breathable mist contains hygroscopic (water attracting) moisturizers that mimic your own skin's hydrating elements. Great for oily skin and t-zone. Non-greasy and absorbs in seconds.
No More Shine: Holds makeup and controls shine on oily and breakout prone skin and t-zone. Fewer touchups and less blotting.
10 Years Younger: Anti-aging for your makeup. Provides natural glow and hydrates to keep makeup from settling into lines and pores.

To purchase these setting spray. Please visit my website at
 search MOTIVES and you will find it.

It is important to use the best foundation for your face. You do not want your face to become all ugly as you are getting older and older. Your face is important!!..So make sure you are using the right products for your skin type/need. If you are unsure, you should consult with a beauty adviser before purchasing anything. Make sure that your foundation is the right shade for you. It is established that foundations you buy out there that are not customizable are made for mass population. Don't worry, that is not a problem..if your neck is darker than your face, you should always find a foundation that is the colour of your neck or a shade darker and vice versa..if your face is darker than your neck..find one that matches your face and blend down from jawline to your  neck. NEVER EVER go a shade lighter because you will look like you have a mask on and that will look funny and ugly. If you cannot find your exact shade, always only go a shade darker.
Moreover although this might be very vague but it will give you an idea of what skin type you might be:
1) sensitive -> delicate, crack
2) dry -> flaky, a little bit of breakouts
3) combination -> t-zone is oily, cheeks are a little dry
4) oily -> breakouts, sometimes a nice glow from the oil, look sweaty
5) dehydrated -> lack of water, flaky

When using liquid foundation, always sets it with a powder on top so you don't look oily throughout the day. The powder helps with oil blotting as well because your skin naturally produces oil throughout the day. If you are using good setting foundation, you will have a natural glow and flawless looking skin. This is what you want so make sure you are using the best foundation for your skin type/need! I have tried many different brands of foundation such as Clinique, Estee Lauder, MAC, Maybelline, and much  more..none of them were for me until I was introduced to Motives. I tried it and I fell inlove with it. I always get compliments on my foundation and skin whenever I go out. This is the only brand I use for my face now..I trust nothing else. Motives is a great line because it is oil free, anti-oxidant, mineral base. Some of the foundation it has such as the custom blend also includes vitamin A & E, hydrator, oil control, lift/firming, sunscreen, and moisturizer. The custom blend has different toner to be able to make adjustments to fit your skin shade and skin need such as redness or whatnot. However, the custom blend foundation is only available from Motives if you are interested and you are from Toronto..let me know because I can make arrangements for you! :)
