August 2011 Faves

I haven't been wearing too much makeup this August - but when I do, there has been very select few I notice myself reaching for. Most are MAC - completely unintentional. LOL :)

MAC Naked Lunch. Ive been obsessed with a Summertime light, shimmery eye. Perfection :)

MAC Warm Soul. This gives me a freshly bronzed glow. I would describe it as a shimmery bronze rose.

MAC Chatterbox. I live for this lipstick when I use a foundation on my lip as a base, just to tone down the colour a bit. It stands out - but not in a neon sort of way. I would describe it as a warm pink.

 The 228 mini shader brush by MAC, which has a very undeserved low rating on MUA. This is essential for creating a soft shadow in the crease before graduating to a deeper shade. Love!

The Mac 219 pencil brush is a magic wand! The ends are perfectly taperes for extreme percision. This was my first MAC brush, and I reccoment it to everyone!
 This Spa Resource eye sweep brush is super fluffy and quite dense. I normally applied one color to my lids this summer - Naked Lunch, and used this to apply it. Packs on the color no problem. I couldn't live without this brush! (Okay, I'm being a bit over dramatic, but seriously - everyone should give this brush a try)
I got it for about 3 bucks at Wal-Mart! Score.
Mary Lou-Manizer by The Balm. Once I got my hands on this I have never looked back! Never searched for another highlight, period. It is a soft shimmering champagne with a hint of gold and its loaded with pigment. I usually apply it with my fingers because i think application with a brush would be over the top..thats how little you need. I throw on some foundation and sweep this on my cheekbones and the bridge of my nose, and voila! Good to go.
PS-This compact contains double the amount you get in a usual blush by MAC ;)
What are your Summer faves??

LIGHT Summer Version of a Smokey Eye

Wondering how to get a light, bronze smokey eye for summer?
It can be hard! Too dark looks very harsh in the summer months, not to mention the creasing in the heat. heres my tutorial on a simple, light smokey eye. I'm wearing it today to go out for Canada Day. Enjoy and have an awesome day!!

Happy Canada Day! What Should I Wear??

So tomorrow is Canada Day and Im a bit unsure of what to wear. No question about the festive makeup though- because theres no way in heck I'd go out in red eyeshadow!

I think I'm going to spend the day drinking beers and having fun with my closest friends.
I'm contemplating which of my red sparkly night on the town (ermm..more like whole entire day in the backyard  haha) shoes to wear.

What do you think?
Hope you all have an amazing Friday Night & Canada Day!!
