M.A.C cosmetics event

We had the pleasure to attend a M.A.C cosmetics event this week. It was a promotional event for the new Holiday collection. We took the liberty of asking a couple tips just for you guys!

Q. What is the secret for a perfect smokey eyes?

A. I really think a great brush makes the biggest difference! Being able to blend easily make the effect all the more smokey and fabulous. The best in my opinion is the 224 Tapered Brush.

Q. What is the best product in this new collection?

A. There are so many! I love them all. This Mineralized blush/highlighter is amazing! The color is so flattering on any skin tone. I also love the eyeshadows. Sometimes, I wet my brush a little to make the eyeshadow have a metallic finish.

Q. What is the M.A.C product you cannot live without?

A. Oh that’s easy! The concealer saves me every morning. I have horrible dark circles and so the mineralize concealer is my go to. Even if I don’t wear a full face of makeup, I just hide my little kinks.

After getting our makeup done, we enjoyed the lovely entertainment, and hors d’oeuvres. Hope to be a part of it again next season!

OOTD: Sweater Friday

Friday…

Everyone’s favorite day of the week.

No matter how tired you are from a heavy week, you still manage to wake up with energy to take on the week-end.

Could it be the anticipation of the evening’s plans? Dinner at Papaye? Hangouts at Magdoos? The occasional BPPevents’ parties?

Our choices are limited here, and it’s up to us to make the best of our week-ends…

Halloween Makeup

Witches and ghouls welcome! All Hallows Eve conjures up our deepest fear and most whimsical fantasies. Whether you’re the vial and gory type or ethereal and love the magical side of things, Halloween is the excuse to go all out!

The Undead!!!

For all of you “Walking Dead”, or Anne Rice novels fans, here’s a look that can used for either a Zombie or Vampire costume.

The idea is to look as pale and tired as possible. Forget your concealer!!!! Use brownish and purple eyeshadows to create deep bags under the eyes (the one time this is ok). Contour your cheekbones as much as possible because you want to look super thin (Liquid diets and starving till you find some flesh will do that you). To finish off, use a deep red liquid lipstick to create a bloody mouth (Yum!)

Creepy Doll!!

DSC_1319

This one creeps people out the most. There isn’t anything scarier than an innocent looking child, or doll with a killer streak.

DSC_1311

Start of with a pale uniform and matte complexion. Use a white matte eyeshadow under your eyes to create the illusion of bigger eyes (A la lady Gaga), and use a black liquid liner to trace your “new” eyes. Go as wild and bold with colorful eyeshadows to further enhance your big eyes, and apply generous coats of mascara on the TOP lashes. Create fake bottom lashes. Put some blush on as usual (go a little heavier on the pink), and add some freckles. Create a little heart mouth in red, and draw lines on the corners on your mouth and add the sutures (creepyyyy).

Dark Fairy!

DSC_1326

This one is for people (like me…), who love all things magic with a slight sinister edge. Anyone else a Harry Potter/Lord of the Rings/ Dark Hunters/ Incarnations of Immortality fan here? No?… Just me? Moving on…

DSC_1343

This one is a little easier. Use a flat eyeshadow brush to create a petal like pattern all over your eyes to make a butterfly like mask. Use any color from the same scheme. The trick is to have very pigmented eyeshadows because you’ll be patting the brush down. Use your liquid liner to create fluid lines on the edge of your eyes (Get creative!). Use a light blush, highlight in key areas, and a natural lipstick… Voilà!

Happy Halloween!

Throw away the tweezers

You’ve guessed it! Fall’s latest and greatest accessories are big and bold… Eyebrows that is.

We’re not actually advocating you get rid of your tweezers, because we still need to keep those eyebrows groomed and neat. You can let them grow out a bit, or fill them in. One of my favorite ways to keep my eyebrows neatly shaped without taking away any fullness, is to thread them (It hurts quite a bit ladies, we know waxing is already a pain, but threading is worth it when done right)

Here’s a fun fall look for all of you up north. I love wearing a fun girly dress and giving it some edge with a man’s leather jacket and some combat boots.

I kept the makeup pretty simple because I felt it would be too hard for a day outing to rock red lips (even though nothing makes me feel more confident than a red pout)

Resan: Welcome to the Future

Resan, literally meaning “recent” in Creole, but redefined by Haitian band T-Vice, as “fresh”, is their new single that has everyone adding the urbanized word to their everyday vocabulary.

T-Vice, one of the most popular bands in Haiti, celebrated their 21st anniversary last weekend. Their countless singles and Carnaval songs have consistently been hits and have always led thousands of fans to sing along in every concert and ball. Their new single, Resan, is no exception.
image3With a futuristic theme of the year 2033, the music video redefines the image of the Konpa group as edgy and although having been around for 21 years, proves nothing less that they are in fact resan.
image
Transporting us to the future, the video starts off with the band members dropping from an alien spaceship on metal motorcycles with a futuristic new age look and dare we say it… Punk Rock! Leather jackets, spiked boots and cuffs, completely black shades, are all essential components of the desired look. The new age appearance is not limited to the band; the girls in the video are wearing all black, leather and punk attire as well. But nothing says future fantastic like extreme cat eyes and funky-colored lipstick such as purple, blue and bright pink.

What’s more, the Haitian group, took a futuristic concept to set a trend going worldwide. Punk, is coming back this Fall as it’s been on every major runway for this upcoming season. So hear us now fashionistas: grab those black leather jackets and rock those spikes and cuffs. Turn heads in a good way. As for our fashionistos: leather, leather, leather! No man can go wrong with a good leather jacket. It’s stylish while still allowing you to remain manly.
Reflecting this current trend in their video, T-Vice proved how “fresh” and “Resan” our little island really can be.

EDGY TREND

If you’ve been near the malls lately you know that it’s all about SPIKES and STUDS: on shoes, accessories, and clothing.

              

  
Once a mainstay of 80s punk fashion and music, the punk rebellion theme is making a come back for this Fall and Winter fashion.
