Product Of The Week: L’Oreal Infallible Lipstick

Hey guys! So I saw this new l’oreal lipstick ad, and YES!!!!!! Beyonce’ (my obsession *fluttering eyelashes*) is the face of the product hehehehehehe (Lemme be honest, that was the real reason I was watching the advert in the first place lol). Anyway, L’Oreal’s Infallible Lip Color is my first foray into longwear lipsticK.

A Tribute to Talia Castellano – An Inspiration to Makeup Artists of All Ages

Hey Guys! As most of you know, Talia Castellano popularly known as “Covergirl” finally lost her battle to cancer last week Wednesday *sad face*. To tell the truth I was heart broken. I cried and could barely go to bed that night. She was such an inspiring young girl even on her hospital bed she was always smiling. I remember the first time I came across her videos on YouTube I was still training as a makeup artist and I was having trouble meeting up with the standard of my boss looool. It was harder work than I expected, but then again I guess it’s because I started off with the mindset that’s it’s just makeup.. right? But I sure got more than I bargained for looool. (I love n appreciate you Lola.. thanks for the training.. cough cough).

VIDEO: PRODUCT REVIEW IMATS LONDON 2013 HAUL BY WAYNE GOSS

Hey everyone it’s me Kristabel again!!!!! So the IMATS (international makeup artist trade show) event just ended some few days ago, and one of my favourite makeup artists “wayne goss” did a review on some of the products he got at the event. I love his reviews because I find him to be quite honest with his opinions, basically I just feel he says it as it is irrespective of the brand. So for those who missed the event like me (Lola got to go but I’m in the wrong town.. oh the pain of it), here’s the video by gossmakeupartist watch it and let me know what you think! We’ll be posting our own review next week, stay tuned!

What is beauty…Who is she anyway? – A Modern View on an Age Old Debate

In my own opinion, beauty is a reflection of your inner self.  However, being beautiful on the inside and neglecting your exterior is not a total definition of the word beauty. Just as you groom and value the inside, the exterior needs to be taken care of as well. According to Nancy Etcoff “Beauty draws us in. We can’t stop looking or listening or touching. It takes us outside ourselves and it motivates us. It’s essential to life and to happiness.”
