Give Good Face Makeup Tutorials, @NotAMagicWand

I love makeup, but I know that I’m far from a professional makeup artist. So, in typical wannabe fashion, I turn to YouTube for guidance and some words of wisdom from the great video gurus — case in point, Give Good Face. Give Good Face is a YouTube channel featuring makeup tutorials by the ever-so-talented artist, Jordan Liberty. His quick and thorough video tutorials bring runway looks home, with instructional footnotes to guide you to your ultimate makeup look.

Here’s the video tutorial for creating a bright violet smokey eye that I tried out!

Seems simple enough right? It is! I mimicked the look with makeup from my own collection — a little less intense, but equally as dark.

I think it’s a great first try, and definitely a great look for a night out; what do you think?


Event LOVE: @Swarovski #KingdomOfJewelsCA

Earlier this week, I attended the preview event for Swarovski’s Fall/Winter 2012-13 Collection: Kingdom of Jewels, and like all the Swarovski events, this one was just as glorious. I loved the collection (the jewellery was beautiful!), the food was great, and the company was even better, lots of laughs and good times!

Here are some of my favourite pieces.


To my understanding these are meant for the Christmas tree…but I’d rock em!

these rings were giving me life!!

More food that I didn’t get to eat… by the time they brought out the vegetarian food, the last thing on my mind was taking pictures lol, I needed to get my eat on! They had these puff pastry cups with warm goat cheese… mm mm MM.

I adore these!
