Dreaming of A Tropical Beach

Inspiration:

With the warmer days, I’m dreaming of beach days and summer.  I’m longing for palm trees and coconut drinks.  Decided to dip into my “Acid Palette” by Sleek to get these vivid colours.

Orange and Edgy

Inspiration:

I always consider it a win when I can get an orange eye look to work on me.  Orange makes blue eyes pop, but unfortunately, Orange does not work well on my skin shade.  I know the orange and black is reminiscent of Halloween, but I think it could work for a bonfire on the beach too.

Fierce Pink

Inspiration:

Truthfully, I was attempting the neon look and it failed.  I adjusted the shades, and got this look.  It reminds me of a super villain, or a girl who’s about to get revenge in a Kung Fu film.  I look like I have murder on my mind. Lol.  It’s definitely not my favorite look, but it might inspire or give someone a clever idea for  an even better look, so I’m posting it anyways.

Bright Bites and Neon Sights

Inspiration:

I wanted an eye shadow look that was fun and edgy, with a pop of bright neon colours.  I chose the main colour to be the green from my Acid Palette by Sleek, and I built the look off that.  *This palette is also said to glow under black lights.  I don’t have a black light but now I really want to get one to see.

Learning Tips for the Novice Beauty Babe

I would never describe myself as a beauty guru or expert – far from it!  I’m not a person who walks out the door looking perfectly put together every day.   I don’t spend hours daily on my face and hair.  And I certainly don’t have hundreds of dollars to spend on makeup and products on a monthly basis (although, I do spend quite a bit on my make up addiction).  I’ve never taken a make up course, but I would really like too.  I’m definitely not going to be an Instagram Star anytime soon.And I can safely say that I can’t see myself developing the latest beauty trend or having 1 million followers sometime in this lifetime.

Maybeline Dream Velvet Foundation

Heads Up:

First thing I want to say is that I just found out that Maybelline is part of the L’Oreal brand, which is owned by Nestle.  I had purchased these products before knowing this.  I’m pretty disappointed, because I did like their products, but I’m currently boycotting Nestle due to unethical actions regarding water supplies.

As a devil’s advocate, I will say that they are not the only corporation that pumps large amounts of water, but they seem to be the worst offender involving their water collection, fair payment for the amount they take, and the impact they are having on communities.  Nestlé’s Chairman once infamously declared that “access to water should not be a public right.”

Water should not be considered a commodity, and governments should be taking a more active role in preventing corporations from taking advantage.  As tax payers, we should not be paying more for our water consumption than a company – which pays ridiculously low costs for our water and sells it back to us at ridiculously high prices.

Since not everybody will care about the Nestle business practices, I’m going to review the product without bias, however, if you want to be a more informed consumer, its easy to find information on Nestle’s unethical behavior involving water.
