Daisy Dream by Marc Jacobs ♥

9/18/2014 09:30:00 AM TINAYUMS
I have been a fanatic of Marc Jacobs different versions of Daisy fragrances since 2012.. And every now then, I am excited to find out what's the latest reveal on this time of the season.

For me, Daisy Dream is far more sophisticated with a light and airy touch. I love wearing it right after my morning bath and I feel fresher with a feminine touch.

I'm easily drawn to blue and maroon nowadays and the "blue effect" composition made from unusual floral and fruity aromas is just delightful and satisfies my scent cravings.

The bottle design is also decorated with daisies motif like all the versions. The fragrance is available as 30, 50 and 100 ml Eau de Toilette with body lotion and shower gel of 150 ml.

Top notes– Blackberry, Grapefruit, Pear Mid notes – Jasmine, Lychee, Blue Wisteria Base notes – White Woods, Musks, Coconut Water

Make Up For Ever New Generation Artist Shadow ♥

9/18/2014 09:00:00 AM TINAYUMS
How exciting! My favorite Make Up Forever will be renewing its iconic range of eye shadows and it will hit the stores and boutiques this October 1, 2014!

Yours truly experienced, tried and tested the range of 210 new generation Artist Shadow during its official launch in Armani Hotel very recently. I was taught how to properly swipe the palette using the brush to get the best out of the pigments. You have to eventually pressed the brush downward in one single stroke and then repeat it again if desired more color. Thanks to my favorite Makeup Artist Trainor, Sam Boutrous, for demonstrating his skills all the time when I visit Make Up For Ever workshops.

Artist Shadow comes with 5 different effects (matte, satiny, metallic, iridescent, diamond), that will adapt to any look you desire for your eyes!

ARTIST SHADOW Pearly Formulas (satiny, metallic, iridescent, diamond effects)

ARTIST SHADOW pearly shades feature two technical innovations: Water-Blend Technology and Pigment Atomization.

Pigment Atomization: brings purity, evenness and extremely intense color.

Water-Blend Technology: gives supple and slightly creamy texture with extremely vivid colors that can be blended endlessly.

The formula is also made of mother-of-pearl as well to add intensity and shine to the color. The particles of these eye shadows are less volatile which means they don’t fall away during application.

ARTIST SHADOW Matte Formulas

Fine and supple matte formulas that contain no pearlized particles and provide an outstandingly even result. Highly pigmented, the color is intense, pure and even. Its formula is ultra soft, making it easy to apply and layer. When applied, it offers optimal hold.

Along with the 12 shades that were given to us to try and experience the products, we were also given a face chart to participate on the competition along with the launch. The best makeup will win 100 shades Artist Shadows! Yay! Who wouldn't want that? I am salivating with just a thought how thrilling it would be in bringing home the bacon.. lol How can I compete with the Filipino fabulous professional makeup artist that I adore and love here in Dubai? Take a stand Jessie Tabla and Valentino! ...... But then I am till keeping my fingers crossed! =P

Well, I am not yet an expert in makeup artistry but I should say that I was very excited to put this look together. This is my very first face chart. I treated it as school project and you wouldn't believe how I missed those days!

To test the intensity of the colors especially in the photos, I went for a turquoise eyes from the palette that was provided to us. Then to add subtlety, I blended it with black and brown creating the crease. I finished the look with pink lips to complement the green eyes. I wanted to create an edgy, sophisticated and modern look that I will definitely wear to an evening night out with a special someone or simply having fun with my girlfriends!
