Drag Queens and Eyeliner Part 2

8/28/11

Hey Beauts! 
I know it's been a while since I last posted but I just got back from vacation and I'm trying to get back into routine...which is so difficult after such a nice relaxing vacation... 
Last time, I showed you my look and my friend Anita's look for our Girls Night Out to a Drag Queen show! 
My friend Afiqah had, by far, the most dramatic look of the night and was completely thrilled! 
Here's her look:


Now I can't remember exactly what she used for her eyes but I think I do know the key components.
Lid: Baby Blue e/s from Body Shop
Crease and Outer V: Carbon e/s by MAC
L'Oreal Telescopic Liquid Eyeliner in Black
L'Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes in Black 

I think she also used MAC e/l Engraved to tight-line her bottom lash line :) 
Very dramatic! :)

Here's some shots from the Show!




Thanks for tuning in for Part 2 ;)
Now that I'm finally back from vacation I will definitely be posting more.

What was your favourite summer beauty item?

Drag Queens and Eyeliner Part 1

8/17/11

So as you all know I live in Montreal, and here during the summer there is ALWAYS a festival of some sort-sometimes even a few at a time. 
My girlfriends and I  decided to go to MASCARA-a drag queen show during the "Montreal Divers/Cite" Festival. We were all amped up and decided to get all girly and dressed up-which means doing our makeup! Wooo! I did the makeup (mostly) for two of my friends that went as well. So this'll be a two part post :) 

First here's my look (I'm SO excited about this eyeliner! I love itt!!) : 


Eyes:
MAC Ricepaper eyeshadow (all over/browbone)
NYX Champagne eyeshadow (lid)
MAC Satin Taupe eyeshadow (crease)
MAC liquidlast liner in Aqualine
Makeup Forever Mascara in Black
Smashbox Brow Tech in Brunette
Face:
MAC Mineral skinfinish in Medium Plus
MAC Bronzer in Matte Bronze
Chanel Reflex Blush
Lips:
MAC Coquette lipglass

My friend Anita's look was very simple and classy since she doesn't wear my much makeup:

Eyes:
MAC "Big Bounce" Eyeshadow in Trophy
L'Oreal Telescopic eyeliner in Black
Makeup Forever mascara in Black

Anita's look is, again, simple but classy :) This also one of my everyday looks! Trophy is such a versatile colour and one of my most used eyeshadows.

Topless and Barefoot NOTD

8/5/11

Hey ladies, 
I'm now waiting in an airport to go to my final vacation destination for the next couple weeks! So posts may be scarce but I'll try to do a few while I'm gone away :)
I wanted to show you guys the NOTD for Topless and Barefoot which came out in the Essie Spring '11 collection. I purchased this one in Spring but hadn't had a chance to try it out yet. It's a beautiful opaque nude and I think it'd be great for any time of year, I'm very happy I got it!

LOVE this colour girls, the only thing I don't like about it is that essie nailpolish tends to crack. These cracks, when wearing a light nailpolish, tend to be very visible and unappealing. Other than that, the colour is very versatile like I said :)

Happy August! 
What nudes are your most versatile?
