Are you looking for a funny and useful mom blog?

Good, you came to the right place!Hi, my name is Chantal Sarkisian and I am a new mom who had a sweet baby boy named Victor in Feb 2013. Join me on this blog to follow my new mommy journey while I am on my maternity leave. I'll ramble quickly about all the random thoughts that go through my head when I am feeding in the middle of the night, or trying to put my son to sleep. I'll also blog about my favourite things, give you helpful tools, and explore activities to do (mostly in the Ottawa region) with kids and maybe some product reviews too! Thanks for reading!

Makeup for Momma

As you know, I was a makeup artist in my past life, sans-bébé!

I've been looking for that perfect pink lipstick, not too Barbie, not too red, not too brown, not too coral... Like a dark berry lip. Anyhow, I'm still on the quest. 

I hate to deviate from MAC products, I'm hooked. I like their recycling program and price point for the quality. Sadly, they don't carry the colour I'm looking for, but I'm using "girl about town" for now, until I find the right tone.

The thing I love about lipstick is that paired with a simple blush and mascara, it can really look dressy and only takes a few minutes.

You're probably thinking... "Ya, I'd love to wear lipstick, but I don't have time to reapply and fuss about it getting on my teeth or bleed away". 

Well, lucky for you I'm sharing my secrets with you today! I use MAC lip primer wich is a must! It holds the lip colour in place and avoids smudging. I can't wear colour without it!
Second, I discovered a clear lip liner (no bleeding liner, Shoppers Drugmart, $17) that helps with the bleeding and you basically never have to buy colour liner again! It's always the perfect match :)

1- start with the lip primer
2- trace lips with clear liner
3- put on lip colour of choice
4- go back with the clear liner and trace lips out until your edges are perfect!
5- Optional is to blot with Kleenex or dust with a light powder to lock it in. But this technique removes the shine.

Have fun galmming it up mommas!
