When I started taking in clients for makeup application I noticed the highlight and contouring trend was here to stay. Every client wanted to have a sculpted face, which I was happy to give them. My contouring and highlighting skills progressed tremendously with every client and they were very satisfied with the results, but somehow I wasn’t. I was happy that my clients were elated with their look, but I found the contouring and highlighting process to be a bit tedious to be honest. There was so much blending involved to ensure the face didn’t look to muddy and I was spending loads of money on different products as I just couldn’t find a “one size fits all” type of product. Now of course, we are all made differently and don’t have similar undertones, skin tone etc, but there had to be an easier way I thought to myself ( these are the questions that keep me up at night !).
I tend to stick to the basics when it comes to my everyday makeup. If I know I’ll be heading out to a function after work and not heading home first, then I’ll include my Urban Decay naked 2 palette and Urban Decay all nighter setting spray in my bag to glam up my day look to a night look.I didn’t include any liquid foundation and eyeshadow in this post as it would be deceiving to include them because 90% of the time in the Fall/Winter I don’t wear liquid foundation and eyeshadow on a daily basis. I’ll wear them on the weekend or if I’m going out to an event. I’ll do an updated “What’s in my makeup bag ” post in the Spring as the items in my bag will change from season to season.
I love this makeup bag. It was a free gift with purchase from Clinique.I love the pattern and it’s a really good size and fits all my makeup.
( not shown but I use this sunscreen before apply moisturizer)
Before I forget,I wanted to include a picture of my handbag. As you know, I was on the hunt for an everyday handbag for months. I finally found something practical, stylish and reasonably priced. Funny story about this particular handbag; I found the brand Tutilo online and I really liked the style, practicality and affordability of their handbags but of course never found the time to actually purchase the bag online. A few weeks later I walk into Marshall’s and what do you know…the bag is staring me in the face. I was so excited! Marshall’s and Winners now carry a few of the Tutilo product line. I absolutely love the bag and highly recommend it. It’s faux pebbled leather,includes a take-away clutch,very roomy, and super stylish. I have received so many compliments on this bag. My next purchase will be this Tutilo handbag.
P.S. To my readers who look forward to my monthly favourites, I’m sorry but I skipped it for October. I didn’t do a lot of purchasing this month and the items I did buy I didn’t feel were really that great to write about, so I’ll be combining my October and November favourites. I already started working on this post so you know it’ gonna be good!!!
