Smashbox has done it again by revolutionizing the foundation! If you have ever used their Halo powder you would know how exciting this new product launch is. It is by far one of the lightest liquid foundations I have tried in a long time with a brilliant, buildable coverage.
If you are someone who likes a radiant and natural finish, this product is definitely for you. You can also easily build the coverage for a night out by adding some High Definition concealer and the Halo Powder for a finishing touch!
This product also has a great price point ($42) and has an SPF of 15 which is always an added bonus!
JRW Beauty decided to do another look a like photo shoot! One of our stunning models, Rebecca Reed, approached us with the idea of recreating the controversial Vanity Fair cover featuring Miley Cyrus. We instantly fell in love with the concept and this is what we came up with. What do you think?

This past weekend I was competing in a Fantasy Makeup Competition for the Asian Expo in Vancouver. It was such an amazing experience; being given a theme (Asian inspired) and then having to create an entire look within 2 hours. Not only did I meet some extremely talented artists and see various styles of makeup, I was able to push myself out of my comfort zone and learn a lot as well. Even though I was not chosen to move on to the next round, I was so happy just to be apart of the competition as it was my first one!
The inspiration for my look first started with a snake; since the look had to be Asian inspired and it being the year of the snake, I thought that was a really cool theme to play off of. So I knew right from the beginning I wanted the shape of the look to be very angular. Then I started doing research to chose my colouring (red, gold and black). I then started to really like the look and idea of a Geisha; their look is so simple but is so striking. Lastly, Lady Gaga became an inspiration for the look which I used in mainly the hair, styling and wardrobe!
