(Eye Cream and Concealer: Wear them Together)

Okay, so I just want to point out some of the benefits of eye cream and concealer. Eye cream is an essential part of your anti-ageing skin-care regimen. And under-eye concealer is what I like to refer to as a gift from the makeup gurus.

Since its inception, it has served and solved many a late-night, or lack of water, allergy, puffy eye disaster. So let us start with the basics:  1st let’s “prime the eye correctly” to prevent concealer cracking. 2nd “know your skin type” if you tend to be oily, don’t use a thick oily or very creamy eye cream. For those with dry skin, use a hydrating eye cream, so your makeup doesn’t crack. 3rd “Always let your under-eye cream set 90 seconds before putting concealer on.” Using concealer as the last step of makeup will give your eye cream enough time to absorb.

Don’t be afraid to try different brands until you find the one that is right for you. Both eye cream and concealer do not have to come from the same brand. What may work from one company in eye cream may not work for you in a concealer. Remember YOU are the ARTIST, and it is your canvas(face) so do what is right for you!

Here’s to a b’HUE-tiful YOU,

You’ve finally found the perfect foundations for your skin tone, but what about the application? Not knowing where to start and how to layer your makeup can sometimes be worse than having the wrong shade! And if you’re a woman of colour, it’s essential to mix your foundations to enhance the natural dimensions of your face. We chatted with celebrity makeup artist Andrew Sotomayor—who has worked with Nina Garcia and Kerry Washington—about creating complexion perfection.

“The most common mistake I see with women of colour has one flat shade over their entire face,” says Andrew. It’s essential to have two or three shades to blend on your face to create a flawless, naturally dimensional complexion. To start, you should apply a concealer under your eyes.

“The most common mistake I see with women of colour is having one flat shade over their entire face,” says Andrew. It’s essential to have two or three shades to blend on your face to create a flawless, naturally dimensional complexion. To start, you should apply a concealer under your eyes. “The concealer should be two shades lighter than your skin,” says Andrew. Yellow concealer works better on darker skin tones than a beige concealer, which often turns greyish-blue on women of colour. Then, “apply a lighter shade of foundation in the centre of the face—on the cheeks, the middle of the forehead, the nose, and the chin,” says Andrew. “Use a damp sponge in a tapping motion for sheer coverage. Or if you are using a foundation brush, try a sweeping motion to diffuse the product and create a smooth, well-blended effect.” Because many women of colour have darker areas around the chin and forehead, it is vital to use a different shade that mimics the skin tones in these areas.

“To avoid getting an ashy look on your forehead or jaw, apply the darker shade of foundation across the hairline, under the cheekbones, and along the jaw,” says Andrew. Be sure to blend well with the other foundations. But what about getting back that healthy radiance? “For a glowing complexion, apply a shimmering or pearlescent highlighter across the cheekbones. “try copper or gold for medium skin tones and gold or bronze for deeper skin tones,” says Andrew. You can also dab a little bit of highlighter on the hairline, bridge of the nose, and chin to create a subtle glow where the sun would naturally hit your face.

DivaGlam Cosmetics specializes in already mixed colours for YOUR particular needs. Although our two-tone foundation pack already comes with a lighter colour and darker colour combo, it is crucial to try colours and remember that we are not just one shade but have beautiful highs and lows. 

As I always say, YOU are the artist, and YOUR face is the canvas. Now go and paint!

 Try on items before you buy

Stitch Fix is the personal style service for men and women that evolves with your tastes, needs and lifestyle.

Okay, I must share this excellent site that I came across and decided to join.  It works much like “Shoe Dazzle.  What you do is to fill out a personal profile, and then from there, the “experts” will choose items for you based on your answers.

I really did this because as I was looking at the site, I had noticed several exciting pieces of jewellery that I just had to purchase. (of course).  It is no secret that I love beautiful things, and shoes and jewellery happen to be my addiction.  Yes, I am an addict, I admit it!!!

Anyway, I just wanted to bring the site to your attention, and if, like me, you just can’t pass up a Good Deal when it presents itself, then you too will enjoy this site as well.  Oh, yea, and please tell them that I sent you!!!

Stay Fixed

Hi Guys! I recently received these 8 products from DIVAGLAM COSMETICS in Dixon, California.

Here is what I received :

Mineral Liquid Foundation
This shade is called “Warm Yellow”. Even though this was not in my skin tone, I still tried it at home (in my bathroom ..lol) just to test the texture. I like that it is creamy and lightweight. Quite often, liquid make-up tends to feel “heavy” or “cakey”. This one has a charming smooth velvet finish.
The unique thing about this foundation is that it comes with a mini-plastic-like brush, so you can actually “paint” it on for a more even finish.

Pressed Mineral Powder

This was in the shade of Medium Dark. However, it was still too light for my skin. It is a “pressed” powder; however, it goes from cream to powder. It comes in a “3 way” compact, pretty much like an Iman Foundation. The first part has a clear plastic showcasing the foundation, then under that, you will find a sponge and a mirror. Let me tell you … the sponge is really, really soft. You can tell that it’s a top-quality sponge. This is, as the name suggests,” compact”. Everything is included 

Fire Opal Eye Shadow

I loooove this shadow! It has a kinda “Rust Gold” thing to it. I know that sounds scary, but it is gorgeous. I especially love the fact that it comes in a bit of shaker, so it minimizes spilling. I also love the sleek clear container it comes in.

Eye-shadow and Shimmer

The eye shadow is in the shade “Chain Link“, and it’s #569. This is a dark greyish shade. This is great for a smokey eye, and because it’s not highly black, it can even be used to create a really subtle “Daytime Smokey Eye”. What I really like about this is that it has a shimmer in it. So if you are like me and like a slight shimmer in your eye shadow, you will love this.


The Shimmer I received is called “Heart Strings”, and it is #26. Ok, so I have this weird thing about smelling make-up, right? It smells like French Vanilla. But, it’s like really light gold, so when the sun hits it, it reflects beautifully. You can use this to create a daytime look or maybe a “Golden Goddess” Diva look .. like J.LO. 
Both products are available in what is known as “pots”. I actually prefer the individual pots to the compact shadows. It makes me feel like the shade was made just for me. 

Moisturize Rich Lipstick

I have to be totally honest, I’m not much of a “Lipstick Girl”, but I’m really starting to get out of my comfort zone and try different things. This one is called” Cherry Bomb”. It’s a sort of dark purple mixed with a bit of red. It’s not too red, nor is it too purple. It goes on like butter. You can feel your lips being moisturized. This lipstick is not one of those susceptible to “feathering”; it goes on and spreads out evenly on your lips. Also, it is packaged in a little Lipstick box, then the case itself feels like really soft velvet. Again the packaging is excellent!

Lip Polish

This Lip Polish is really “Glossy”. It’s kinda like the aftermath of Lipstick+ LipGloss all in one little container :-) I like that it’s reaaaaally red. So if you are looking to do a Dramatic Red Lip, I highly recommend this product. However, since it’s soo red, I would recommend applying it lightly.

Lip Liner

I received this Lipliner in Burnt Red. This is quite similar to a “Kohl lip liner”. However, it is a “True Color”, meaning that it goes on red and you only need to apply once; it is quite effective. No “Double Lining” is necessary. I especially love that it’s grey and not the traditional “black” colour, with the paint on the tip; I believe that beauty products should be pretty.

I must say that I loved each and every one of these products. I love where DivaGlam cosmetics is going with their line and the thought that went into developing and packaging these products. If you want the “Diva Look”, check out DivaGlam Cosmetics
