Come Fly with Me - Understanding the Planes of Your Face

As I mentioned, 2015 will be about inspiration and perspective.  Whether you are a makeup junkie or a makeup artist, I want you to see how you can understand the basics of makeup in the most unlikely places.  Or you can back away because you realized I have a weird brain.  In this post, I want you see the planes of your face for highlighting, shaping, contouring, and defining.

I am Olivia, Just a Blogger - The 2015 Outlook & A Blog Award

Special thanks to Aldona from Working Beauty for the illustration.

Funny how things happen, I was going to write a semi About Me post combined with what-to-look-for-in-2015 post.  Then, I get a blog award via the lovely Cailin from SassyDove.  Why not combine everything into one post?

AW15 Hainsworth Collection by Jenny Schwarz Menswear - The History and The Impact

A Tom Mison look-alike!
Not many fashion brands have captured my attention as much as Jenny Schwarz Menswear.  I first featured the line here.  What I like about the line is the classic look with the modern twist in detail.  I also admire the classical background on the quality of the fabrics.  This is especially well defined in the AW15 Jenny Schwarz Hainsworth collection.

Gentle Cleansing with Le Mieux Phyto-Marine Cleansing Lotion

*PR sample*


Out of all facial cleansers, I prefer a cream cleanser or cold cream cleanser.  I also double cleanse, meaning I will use a non-soap cleanser to remove the cream cleanser.  This is basically my habit.  However, I do prefer a water soluble cream cleanser and I loved a certain brand but it got pretty pricey with their muslin cloth.  So, when I was able to test Le Mieux Phyto-Marine Cleansing Lotion, let's say I wasn't sure if it would live up to my pricey legend.
