As I mentioned in my last blog post I’m not great at this blogging thing but after having a few of my friends ask me “Do you really like the BB cream you posted about?” or “OMG I just tried the BB cream you blogged about it’s amazing!” I realized huh…….people really do read these! So I thought I’d try to get my behind in gear and share some more of my favourite products with you ladies and gents.
As most of you know or have learned eyeshadow just doesn’t stay on without primer. Shadow primer is probably the most valuable tool in my kit for weddings with all the crying and possible heat it's no easy feat to keep your shadow looking like it was just put on at 8:00pm during that first dance. Without primer colours don’t look as bold and take on a soft look that within two hours at most it looks as though you have nothing on but your liner (if you so choose to wear) and mascara. Using a primer will bring your make up to a whole new level I promise. Wether you are doing an extravagant look or super basic the primer will keep the look fresh because as most of us know faded make up can make us look tired and haggard which ok some of us may be but you certainly don’t want your make up to show it. I have tried many different primers in my day but I always go back to Urban Decays Eye Shadow Primer Potion. They aren’t kidding when the call it “Potion” this stuff works like magic! It comes in a few different shades matte and shimmer and keeps your shadow on for hours, I honestly truly mean hours! I have done my make up at 5:00am and got home around 5:00pm after a long hot day full of wedding make up and it looks like I just applied it, which guarantee my brides look like as well.
Welcome to the new and improved Bliss Blog! Not only has the blog been revamped but so has our entire site. I must say I’m a lucky gal to have such a tech savvy husband. I’m really excited to give blogging a try and to share some of my best kept beauty and hair secrets.
So lets start with my new favourite drug store beauty product Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream. I first bought this about three months ago when I decided to give BB creams a try. I had done some online research and found that tons of other beauty bloggers thought this product gave you the most bang for you buck so I figured I’d give it a try. I’m generally a drug store make up snob unless it’s my mascara, we can talk about that another day, so I was hesitant when buying but thought for $12.00 I’d give it a try and I’m so glad I did. The coverage was perfect for a light everyday look and I loved the benefits of having moisturizer, brightener, and primer all in one. My skin is normally fairly dry and since using it I have found that I have been less flakey and much more supple. I do still use a good concealer with it to help cover any left over redness and dark circles then finish with a mineral powder. So there you have it ladies if you are looking for a great alternative to your normal foundation this BB cream is a great candidate.
Last but not least I’d like to say a big thank you to my amazing husband for all his hard work on the new site! I am so lucky to have someone like you to put up with me. I love you! Until next time ladies have a fabulous week!
Yesterday I had the pleasure of teaching a group make up lesson to seven wonderful women, a few who have had the pleasure of being friends for 54 years! After the ladies had enjoyed their lovely lunch prepared by their hostess I began the lesson. As I did each of ladies make up I explained what and how I was doing it so that they could take home with them the tools to create the look again for themselves. Read More...
