Welcome to the Smoke Show

I have always been intimidated by eyeshadow. I don’t know why, but I could never get it to look right or straight up gave up on trying.

Enter ShadowSense. It’s opened a whole new world for me. And I have the confidence to get creative with these highly pigmented colours. The quality of the product, how blendable the cream to powder is. Aaaaah I just love ShadowSense!

Now, I’ll admit it, I had fun making this video. I’m beginning to enjoy the editing process in iMovie. Thinking of switching up cameras though for my next video to my dSLR instead of my iPhone, which will be a wing liner tutorial as requested by my customer base.

Sit back, and enjoy the Smoke Show.

The ShadowSense colours I used:
  • Candlelight
  • Moca Java
  • Garnet mixed with Onyx
  • Silver Shimmer
 
If I can do it, you can too 😊

I don’t like to name favourites, but…

It’s been a busy weekend so far, as I attended a SeneBlends training session and did a makeover for a fellow SeneSister and she was very happy with the result! So was I! I colour matched her foundation to the right shade.

I’ve got another makeover/pamper session lined up this week for a momma who needs a break. I love can I can offer these to my friends and their friends and family and so on. It’s such great practice for me.

I’m feeling inspired to share with you one of my favourite skin care products, just don’t tell the other products; they get jealous easily.

I have talked about it before but I love love love the Facial Resurfacer.

It gives me the feeling of new skin every time I use it, as it sloughs away the dead skin sitting on my skin.

The SenePlex Complex in this product helps bring new plump skin cells to the surface 23% faster than going it alone. As you layer the SenePlex Complex, the better your skin will become; more plump, smoother and more luminous.

I use the resurfacer twice a week and no more than that as you don’t want to damage or thin out your skin.

The benefits of removing the dead skin cells, allows treatments and moisturizers penetrate your skin a lot faster and deeper, and get to work faster without all that crustiness in the way.

I highly recommend this for oily or acne prone skin (like mine), but all skin types can use this.

On a damp clean face, apply a pinky nail sized amount (smaller than a pea) to your face and in gentle, small, circular motions massage around your face, neck, and décolletage. I do this for about a minute or 2, then rinse off. Follow with your treatments and moisturizer.

This is going to give you a smooth base for your Colour Correcting Tinted Moisturizer and for your Foundation.

So go forth and get exfoliating! I’m going to clean the oven now. Oh! What a glamorous life I lead!

Say hello to my little friend

Cracked, chapped and weather worn lips are the look for this winter.

Wait…that’s not right.

My kids are complaining of dry lips all the time, especially right now as my eldest has the flu, despite being well hydrated. Other reasons you might have dry lips could be due to wax based products drying out your lips.

Or you could be a lip licker…

Wave your dry lips goodbye and helloooo to long lasting nourishment and protection!

This little tube is filled with awesomeness in the form of:

SenePlex Complex, Coconut oil, Cocoa butter, Shea butter, vitamins A and E and more.

lip balm

Your lips will be softened and conditioned and protected from the sun with our natural ingredients like seaweed extract and orchid flower extract.

Apply to clean, dry lips as often as needed, especially at bedtime or before going out into the cold. Also use after polishing your lips with LipSmooth. Leaves you with a matte finish.

You need one in your bag, back pack, bed side and bathroom. Get yours today.

Green with Envy

I love green. I have knit up so many things in green. I just love it. Never would I have thought to wear a green eyeshadow however, and yet here we are.

I’m wearing Seafoam Shimmer from the Coastal Collection and I’m in love. Yes, I can be in love with multiple colours, there’s no law against that! You’re not my mom!

It’s not normally my go to green, but I can see the appeal to it. It’s a summery colour (even though it’s winter here) and the shimmer just gives me life!

Serious brows are serious today…well, everyday haha!

Tomorrow I might push the boundaries a little with my eyes and go for broke with Seafoam and Shell Glitter ShadowSense. My favourite MUA and SeneSister has created a look I want to replicate. Stay tuned.

Other musings:

I’ve finally ordered my ring light direct from the manufacturer this time, so I hope it gets sent to the correct address this time which was very clear in my order! *ahem*

I received a package today from my Crown Princess (yes, our ranks are royalty) and my heart is full of gratitude! She spoiled me for all the work I did in May. I’m beyond thrilled to have been recognised for going outside my comfort zone!

The germs are still hanging around my house and I want them to go away! My eldest kiddo is still sick and youngest is recovering thanks to antibiotics. I’m fighting strong for them both cause I ain’t got time to be sick!

The cats are catting.
