Hey all! I was invited to a beauty blogger event by Almay some time ago but never got a chance to type up the post but here it is. Better late than never right?!
I always wanted to take a makeup lesson or two and learn a few of the more complicated eye makeup looks and address some of the makeup doubts I’ve had for a long time. Going to makeup school was and is not an option for me – too expensive, requires too much time commitment and they teach you so many unnecessary things which you only need to know if you plan on becoming a makeup artist, which I do not.
I wanted to go for a short 2-3 hour lesson which would be taught on a one on one basis and I’d get personal attention and when I found Sehar from Magnified Beauty I knew I had to book her fast and go for it. I checked her work on Instagram and loved it! Her insta pictures comprised of stunning makeup that ranged from subtle every day eyes to bold smokey eyes to vibrant colourful looks – all blended and executed beautifully. I also saw some contouring pictorials and that she was a pro at that and her base makeup in all her pictures was just flawless. She lives in Mississauga so anyone in the Mississauga or GTA area (like me) can conveniently book her because the distance isn’t much, but even if you’re coming to the city from another location I’d highly recommend taking time out and visiting her.
Here are some eye looks she did on me and taught me :
If I wasn’t living in Canada what would be my dream place to live in? England! I’ve been able to visit England quite a few times (have relatives there) and I am so in love with the place. What’s the first thing that comes to my mind when I think of England? Tea , the British accent and vintage items!
When it comes to England and tea I can imagine the classy British ladies having their afternoon tea in vintage teacups with saucers on a round table with a crisp white table cloth surrounded by cookies and macarons and scones!
Aren’t they amazing and so eye catching?! I was at Indiogo’s (Chapters) which is a book store in Canada and started testing out different headphones. I saw the very popular beats by Dr. Dre in nice colours but nothing girly (I wanted the pink ones!). Then just before leaving I saw thes beauties and couldn’t resist. They had an open pair and so I was able to actually feel them out of the box and test the sound.
