MAKE-UP PRODUCTS I LOVED THIS SEASON: SUMMER 2013 EDITION!!!

Hello Glamazonians! Okay, so officially summer ends on September 21st, but since fall semester is right around the corner, I figured why not compile a list of the go to makeup products I used this season.

1. READY TO WEAR NEW YORK COUTURE BLUSH DUO– Not sure how much it cost since it was a present from a friend. The colours in the HSN brand’s kit are Pink Platform and Almond Lace-ups although I tend to reach for Almond Lace-ups more often. It’s an amazing contour colour.

2. URBAN DECAY‘s DELUXE EYESHADOW BOX $38- I surprisingly got a lot of use out of this palette this season. The packaging alone is to die for, but the colours don’t disappoint either. Anyone who’s familiar with UD, knows how pigmented their shades are and their primer potion underneath the shadow is gorg! P.S my fave shades are Peace, Zero and Shag. My camera isn’t doing them justice enough!

3. URBAN DECAY PRIMER POTION $20- I normally opt for eyeliner pencils as eyeshadow bases(ONLY CREAMY ONES) but I decided to try the primer potion and I love it. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll still use my pencils every now and then but at the moment I’m loving the primer potion.

4. LA GIRL PRO CONCEALER $3- I kid you not, this concealer is the business! As much as I love MAC’s Studio Finish and Bobbi Brown Corrector, LA Girl has a special place in my heart mainly because of the price. Just kidding, the affordability aside, the product is amazing. The consistency isn’t too watery, which is perfect. You can buy two different shades to mix but I found my perfect shade which is Medium Bisque!

5. NYX SHOCKING PINK ROSE INTENSE LIPSTICK $6- I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this lipstick! On National Lipstick Day, I amassed a list of my fave lipsticks and this was on top of the list! There’s nothing better than wearing a soft eye look alongside this devastatingly bright shade.

6. NEW YORK COLOR BIG BOLD PLUMPING MAGNIFIED MAUVE LIPGLOSS $4- This shade is my go-to when I have on a dark-smokey eyeshadow.

TAYLOR MADE MANICURE MONDAYS!!!

Hello Glamazonians! My friend Taylor Reis and I got together and brainstormed an idea for Fiercely Glamazonian. Since Tay has an affinity for nail art, we came up with a “Taylor Made Manicure Mondays” segment. Every couple of weeks, I shall update this segment with new tutorials.

STEP ONE: Gather supplies listed below.

  • Nail polish remover
  • Nail buffer
  • cotton buds
  • tooth picks
  • Nail polish
  • Base Coat
  • Top Coat

supplies

PRE-REQUISITE BEFORE BEGINNING: Make sure nails are cleaned thoroughly. Clip and buff nails before starting step two!

STEP TWO: Paint nails with white nail polish. The first coat doesn’t have to be perfect since you’ll be going over it again.
step 1

NO PICTURE AFTER STEP TWO, SORRY GLAMS!

STEP THREE: Paint yellow polish over white. Make sure there is a little bit room left on the bottom of the nail.
step 2

STEP FOUR: Add one more coat to the yellow polish. Don’t worry if it’s a little messy. You can clean it up after.
white & yellow polish

STEP FIVE: Take the nail art colours and paint whatever design you want. Taylor wanted to do Aztec like designs on my nails but you can do whatever designs you want. Make sure the design is only on the yellow polish. You can leave it as is, and apply your top coat. But if you’re a bit adventurous with your nails, keep reading.

STEP SIX: Try different designs on each finger nail, add top coats and VIOLÀ ALL DONE!
Finished product!

KAROLINA KURKOVA @ HOPE FOR CHILDREN GALA!!!

Hello Glamazonians! Gorgeous Swedish supermodel, Karolina Kurkova wore a demure but sexy body-hugging dress to the Samsung Hope for Children Gala. But it’s not the outfit I’m gawking at. It’s that beautifully vibrant pink lipstick! After seeing her pictures, I went on the hunt for the perfect pink shade. As you all know, I’m a sucker for bright red lipstick but lately I’ve been loving pink.

Shades similar to Karolina’s are:

Smashbox‘s Be Legendary Lipstick in Fuchsia Flash Matte ($19)

Make-up Forever‘s Rogue Artist Natural Lipstick in N27 Iridescent Blue Pink ($20)

M-A-C‘s Candy Yum Yum ($27)

Maybelline‘s ColorSensational in Fuchsia Flash ($8)

GLAMAZONIAN QUOTE OF THE WEEK!!!

“Elegance is a glowing inner peace. Grace is an ability to give as well as to receive and be thankful. Mystery is a hidden laugh always ready to surface! Glamour only radiates if there is a sublime courage & bravery within: glamour is like the moon; it only shines because the sun is there.” ~C. JOYBELL C.~

KERRY WASHINGTON’S INSTYLE MAGAZINE PHOTO-SHOOT!!!

Hello Glamazonians! Kerry Washington‘s fashion sense, both on screen and off, has captivated audiences so it shouldn’t astonish us that InStyle Magazine has asked KW to grace the pages of their magazine. I would love for her to be on the cover, but that’s another conversation. Kerry always looks stunning in 1960’s inspired photo-shoots, a la her Ebony Magazine cover and Entertainment Weekly cover.

“Whether it’s fashion or life, I like to go for it. As long as I feel good about what I’m wearing, it doesn’t matter if so-and-so calls it ugly” ~Kerry Washington~

P.S SCANDAL FANS, THE PROMOS FOR THE NEW EPISODE IS JUST KILLING ME! CAN APRIL 25TH COME SOONER?!?! #SCANDALADDICT

GLAMAZONIAN QUOTE OF THE WEEK!!!

 “The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame. The gift is yours — it is an amazing journey — and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day your life really begins.” ~Bob Moawad~
