Blooming Forget Me Not

How did you make it to where you are today?

I’ve got to say that my strong sense of ambition is definitely, what brought me here today. I was always keeping updated as much as possible with the beautiful world of cosmetics, always looking for opportunities and always trying to achieve more. It all started when I used to play with dolls and Barbie’s, and it alone becomes a whole process of metamorphosis.

How would you describe yourself taking in consideration this lifestyle?

I consider myself like a small flower in this world. Every flower starts with a seed, add the soil (home) and some water&sunlight (nutrition) and let miracles happen. A flower is built tough, the roots, (this implying my supportive family and artistic, my sister whom always let me apply her makeup, my friends who are always there to encourage me through think and thin).. Then, theirs the stem, (built tough and ready to pierce through the ground to make its appearance)  Then at the top of the stem you find the bud (which in this metaphor I’m trying to create represents your comfort zone). To get to where I am today I had to breakthrough, then grew out of my shell to finally expose myself to the world. (So, I made the hard decision to leave my small town behind to move to the Nations’ capital, OTTAWA where I attended La Cité Collégiale in the Esthetics program). So as this went on my petals grew stronger and brighter and more colored as my knowledge grew in those same ways.

How did all this happen for you?

I landed a job right away after graduating as a full-time cosmetician at Jean-Coutu (MY FIRST RETAIL JOB! which I rocked at b.t.w) … I have a lot to thank to this job as they were SO great to me. From here on there was no stopping me. I started to bloom and to show my hidden wonders. Even created a social network and a small fan base.

One day at my work, a rep from Lise Watier showed up and was talking to my head cosmetician. She was talking about an opening MUA job for the company … Right away *BING* light turned on in my head … I, Myriam Cyr, was going to land this job … no questions asked. Heres where I put in play the laws of attraction to the test. I thought long and hard about this position and how much I could see myself in it. Tweeted about it, facebooked, tumblr EVERYTHING you name it, I put my interest out there. One day I had a twitter mention (which hardly ever happened before this) as I checked it already my colors were showing I was full of excitement. I’m sure my face turned 50 shades of red … I had @LiseWatier and @ChelseaChute4LW tweeting me good luck message’s on my application to the job. WOW WOW WOW was I ever in a mood of pure ecstasy … Then, the next thing I know the regional rep had tweeted me that she would like me to send her my resume directly to her (since the head office was taking their time sending it over to her). She was also asking me if I was available in the next few days to meet with her about the position. AHH! I was happier than a child on Christmas morning.

Finally I had met with the rep the next day. Little did I know, she was already ready to hire me, but I kept answering her interview question trying to rock my interview (completely oblivious to the fact) only for her to tell me ‘so BTW I knew I was going to hire you before I even came into Tim Hortons (this is where my interview was) I just wanted to hear more about you’…. all I remember was tears filling up my eyes, I WAS SO JOYFUL … like I cried at the end of an interview kind of happy and here I am still today loving my job! Here’s to hoping the happiness never ends.

More and more every day I keep blooming into this beautiful blue-eyed forget me not flower… 🙂 Smallest most beautiful flower the world has (in my opinion).

Signed,
BeauteOptic, your little forget me not flower 🙂

MUST HAVES: New Lise Watier Launches

Lise Watier Cosmétiques has recently launched a few new products, and I thought they deserved 100% that I do a review on them!  Great new products! Probably my favourite new products as well.

Thought i’d start with the new shadows, only because they are officially my new favourite product!

Lise Watier Ombre Souffle Supreme – 24$
(Shoppers Drug Mart, Jean-Coutu, Sears, The Bay)

ImageI’ve recently got these colours added to my collection, and let me tell you I was EXTREMELY skeptic to use them because they are kind of like a cream shadow.  First thing I thought was “OMG this is going to crease”.  Well let me tell you I was pleasantly surprised!

I of course took the liberty to test it out on my own eyes. All day I found myself checking myself out in every mirror in sight making sure it hasn’t creased yet.

Everytime, I was very surprised to see that it was still put and hasn’t moved. I also found it makes a PERFECT base for eyeshadows to ensure your shadows don’t crease as well and is very blendable.

These come in 6 beautiful iridescent shades: Ciel de Nuit, Vert Enchante, Sunrise Peach, Magie Blanche, Magie Noire and Taupe Fantasia. They have an amazing air-whipped texture, kind of like a soufflé AND on top of all of this, these are your first anti-aging eye shadows!  They all have the Lise Watier famous Labrador tea extract, which is very anti-oxidant and is also considered the highest antioxidant on the market presently.

UP NEXT:

Lise Watier Extra Smooth Liner – 20$
(Shoppers Drug Mart, Jean-Coutu, Sears, The Bay)

ImageThese eyeliners…WOW. WOW. WOW.  Amazing texture, Amazing Hold (waterproof). Give you about 30-60 seconds to smudge for a smokey look and truly makes a great look. 3 colours so far, Bleu, Vert and Noir. The black one is actually more black then my regular liquid liner so I am now using it more then my liquid. *blushes* Its my new best kept secret.

I definitely recommend that you guys all give it a try!

It literally just glides on and the liner itself is dressed with a smudge tip to help create different looks. Highly pigmented it makes the perfect liner for a nice precise or smokey line.

** Warning; It is a mechanical eye liner, no sharpener needed BUT you can not twist it back down. so only roll up what you need!.

LAST BUT NOT LEAST:

Lise Watier Dramatique Intense 3D Volume Mascara – 24$
(Shoppers Drug Mart, Jean-Coutu, Sears, The Bay)

Image

This mascara offers you, volume and extreme length all while curling your lashes.  It has a nice creamy easy to apply formula in a beautiful ultra-black pigment and also includes ceramides. The brush, which is of a drop shape provides the perfect application for shorter lashes aswell as longer lashes, for a proffesional looking set of lashes.

I’m actually so in love with this mascara, it has now become my favourite of the cosmetic line.  It used to be the WOW mascara by Lise Watier, but this one knocked it outta the ball park for sure.

And the BEST part of it all is these products are regular products, they will stay on the shelves and not disappear like the seasonal products do.  No worries!

NOTE: I wasn’t tagged by anyone but thought this would be fun to do!

1. Name a beauty regime that you rarely do
The one thing I rarely or even never do, and I keep telling myself I will do is after a shower, to apply my body lotions.  I have SO many body lotions that are just waiting to be used.. *sigh*

Lise Watier Brush Cleaner

2. Is washing your makeup brushes something you do regularly?
Washing your brushes is SO important, that is one thing I dont EVER neglect.  As a makeup artist my brushes touch many faces. I become crazy when it comes to cleaning my brushes, they needs to be well done, and often shampoo.  My favorite brush cleanser is:  Lise Watier Brush Cleaner – review

3. How long will you last with chipped nails?
I could last maybe 3 days.. But once they chip I will start picking at my nails, this is a habit I just recently got out of and I’m not willing to start again.

4. How long do you put off buying/replacing a beauty or nail polish product even if you need it?
Depends, nail products? the only thing I buy again is the remover, I never buy a nail color again, I’m always following colour trends.  Skin care, I feel I always wait till the last minute, and every time I forget.

5. What is your worst beauty habit?
I’m MUCH better now but I had gotten into the bad habit of not cleaning my face before bed. THANK YOU for the new Micelaire water trend! No more excuse for being lazy!

6. Name something non-beauty related that you put off doing all the time
HOMEWORK, school projects.. I always feel something else is MUCH more important to do this the last minute..

7. When going out somewhere, do you leave getting ready until the last minute or not?
Getting ready is my favorite part of going out! I love to dress up get dolled up and make an impact!  “smokey eye” is considered a lazy makeup for me when I go out.

8. Can you commit to spending bans?
You know what… maybe someday I will try it!

9. How organized is your makeup and nail polish collection?
I have a nice little set up for my nail products in my living room because of all my girl nights, it is much easier access and my friends love it.  For my makeup I need to do a cleaning every month, it gets unorganized so quickly!

10. What is the longest amount of time you have gone without writing a blog post?
Still new to all this so ask me again in a while!

Xx; Mimii

A touch of summer in this weather..

We had a project to do in class; it was to take a picture of a product.  Since I’m a Lise Watier fanatic, I of coarse chose one of their products. Thought this one would be very suitable, considering the weather were having, we are all in need of a little hint of southern winds… *Vent du Sud*

Personal Review:

I’ve found myself wearing this scent ALL winter, most likely cause I’ve just been dreading all this snow and cold. This perfume has just given me that small hint of summer breeze. It is said that scent brings back memories, well this one definitely does.. it reminds me of those hot summer days on the beach, with some cocktails with my girls… ahhhh I cannot wait till summer! When I smell it I definitely smell a little lavender, a little vanilla and even a little kiwi! Mmmm.

Description:

Envelope your skin with the deliciously exotic scent of the tropics with Vent du Sud Eau de Toilette. Blending the sensual, feminine notes of passion flower, jasmine and rose with the warmth of an exotic fruit cocktail and the sweet, hot traces of amber, vanilla and wood-scented musk, Vent du Sud Eau de Toilette is your passport to the exotic. Now transport yourself to the tropics with just one sprits!
