Silver Screens | Wedding Wednesday | Old Hollywood Glamour Bridal Makeup with Charlotte Tilbury

Silver Screens | Wedding Wednesday | Old Hollywood Glamour Bridal Makeup with Charlotte Tilbury | labellesirene.ca

Hey Beauties! 

Sometimes I just can't wrap my head around how quickly time truly flies. The past year has come and gone in the blink of an eye and now I will be getting married in just 30 days! Now that we are down to the final days, I need to nail down the makeup look I want to wear on the big day. 

It's actually a rather important decision, especially for someone who loves makeup as much as I do. Imagine looking back at your wedding photos 20 years down the line and being shocked by the bright blue eyeshadow and hot pink lips you thought were an amazing idea. There are so many things to consider and so many looks to try so today I'm sharing my first option - an Old Hollywood Glam look with Charlotte Tilbury

Charlotte Tilbury is the epitome of effortless, romantic glamour and that is exactly what I had in mind for my first look. I based the entire look off of soft smoky eye with a shimmery lid created using the Luxury Palette ($66 CAD) in the shade Uptown Girl. 

The Luxury Palettes feature 4 harmonious shades (in various finishes) that offer a transitional day-to-night eye wardrobe. They are gorgeous palettes that can be used in a multitude of ways by either makeup aficionados or even new-comers as they include an easy to follow application guide. On the back of the palette, it labels each shade in order of application from prime to enhance to smoke and finally to pop.

 Each Luxury Palette comes in a carefully curated "look" with the Uptown Girl palette focusing on champagne, oyster and smoky grey hues that work together to achieve a wearable, subtle smoky eye.

With such a classic eye, the options were endless when it came to the lips. The neutral tones gave me the ability to choose any shade of any colour but seeing as I was focusing on a more bridal look, I decided to stick with a nude.

The K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick ($39 CAD) in the shade Penelope Pink was the perfect "my lips but better" nude that everyone spends their lives searching for. Pair the beautiful shade with the signature formula and I had found my dream wedding lipstick.

The K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipsticks are the signature CT range, curated with modern and classic icons in mind. There is a shade for every leading lady from the silver screen to the runway and each lipstick bears one of their names (Victoria, Sienna, Nicole etc). 

Their one-of-a-kind formula is based on one secret ingredient, the fruit of the Lipstick Tree. A tropical plant that is packed with antioxidants that help naturally protect the lips from UV damage and pollution. This ingredient, when combined with a special blend of waxes delivers a lipstick with an unparalleled creamy texture, ultra smooth application and great comfort.

While I fell head over heels for the nude lip, I wanted to take the Old Hollywood theme a step further and try out a classic red lip. 

I chose the Hot Lips Lipstick ($39 CAD) in the shade Carina's Love and I cannot express how gorgeous it truly is! 

The Hot Lips range features a luminous, modern matte formula in stunning shades from nudes to reds. These matte lipsticks are unlike any others in that they have a soft, velvety matte finish but it is accented with a luminous lit from within glow that seems to defy the traditional understanding of a matte lip. 3D glowing pigments help give that radiant finish and make your lips appear fuller and smoother.

The Hot Lips formula features the same secret ingredient as the K.I.S.S.I.N.G range but these lipsticks contain additional oils and triglycerides to give them an ultra comfortable feel. The Hot Lips range is also designed to give off incredible, bold pigmentation and a buildable, long lasting finish.

Hey Beauties! 

We have been in a major heatwave for the last few days and it means that I am pulling out all of my little tricks to lock my makeup in place no matter how hot it gets. Last week I told you guys all about my favourite priming and prep products from Urban Decay and this week I am sharing the Top 10 Must Have Setting Powders That You NEED Right Now! 

When it comes to makeup, a good setting powder is something that I absolutely cannot live without. From an all-over dusting to full on baking, I use powder in many ways and at many times during my routine. There are so many fantastic powders out right now that completely knock the powders of years past out of the water, so check out my favourites!

A pressed illuminating powder that is formulated with synthetic white sapphires that give a multidimensional finish. The pigments are semi-transparent so they reflect light beautifully while still letting your skin show through. This micronized powder glides on with a silky feel and stays put providing the effect of a loose powder in a pressed format. 


A multipurpose pressed powder that sets, perfects, and finishes, leaving skin with a diffused, luminous glow. This silky powder delivers just enough sheer color to create the perfect, subtle glow while brightening up the complexion with a soft-focus finish.

A collection of six universally-flattering finishing powders that recreate the most flattering light. Infused with the innovative Photoluminescent Technology, each finishing powder captures, diffuses, and softens the look of the skin. The micron-size, color-correcting particles refract light and create transparent coverage, filtering out harsh light and refining the appearance of the skin.

Prep, Prime & Set | New Releases & Old Favourites From Urban Decay | Overview & Suggestions


Prep, Prime & Set | New Releases & Old Favourites From Urban Decay | Overview & Suggestions | labellesirene.ca

Hey Beauties! 

Summer is officially here and I don't know about you, but the biggest struggle I have during these sweaty months is keeping my makeup in place and on my face! Over the years, I have learned that it takes proper preparation and planning to make sure my hard work doesn't get ruined and that means I need to arm myself with primers, powders, and setting sprays. 

For the longest time, my number one setting spray has been the Urban Decay All Nighter Spray followed closely by the Skindinavia Makeup Setting Spray (review here). Now my two favourites have come together to create an incredible new collection of preparation products! 

This collection features a couple of new products and a re-release of a few old staples. 

To kick it off, Urban Decay's infamous settings & priming sprays are back and better than ever. The entire line has been re-imagined and re-packaged in beautiful soft touch bottles with frosted caps and sleek writing. The bottles also feature a specially designed nozzle that delivers a calibrated micro-fine mist.

The two priming sprays are differentiated by their bright green bottles and they are currently my favourite way to start my makeup routine. These sprays are intended to prep skin for the application of makeup, hydrate and balance the skin. 

The B6 Vitamin-Infused Complexion Prep Priming Spray ($39 CAD) gives skin a quick dose of vitamins and helps calm a multitude of skin woes. It is a soothing spray that preps, primes, hydrates, softens, and evens out the skin tone, absorbing oil and reducing shine. It is packed with antioxidants, willow bark, vitamin E and the 1st patented stabilized form of topical vitamin B6. It can be used to wake up your skin in the morning (my personal fav), to refresh it during the day or to prepare for your skincare at night. 

The Quick Fix HydraCharged Complexion Prep Priming Spray ($39 CAD) is a magic potion that can help bring your skin back to life. It is meant to be used post cleansing to balance, hydrate, soothe and soften skin while replacing any lost moisture! It visibly reduces the appearance of pores and brightens to give you a glowing complexion and it is packed with Vitamin B3, Sepitonic M3, and coconut water.

The cult-classic setting sprays are back with their groundbreaking formulas that help makeup last all day and night through any conditions. There are 3 different high-tech, light as air formulas, each with a different purpose and preferred skin type. 

The All Nighter Spray ($39 CAD) is suitable for all skin types, the De-Slick Spray is best for oily skin, and the Chill Spray is best for normal - dry skin. All three sprays are designed to keep makeup looking freshly applied and flawless for up to 16 hours with no melting, fading, or settling. They lock your hard work in place so there is no need to touch up or powder throughout the day. 

The De-Slick formula is incredible for oily skin as it controls oil, deflects surface shine and keep skin matte all day long. It prevents all sort of makeup mishaps caused by oil including smudging, sliding and fading. 

The Chill formula features time-release technology that cools the surface of your makeup for an even better wear and it also hydrates the skin throughout the day. 

To go along with those incredible sprays, Urban Decay has released three Complexion Primers that come housed in gorgeous clear frosted tubes with metallic gunmetal accents. 

The De-Slick Complexion Primer ($38 CAD) is inspired by the cult classic De-Slick in a Tube. It is a lightweight, oil-absorbing primer that keeps oil in check in even the most extreme conditions. The sheer nude formula controls shine, minimizes the look of pores and mattifies skin all well locking your makeup in place all day long. 

It features an oil and paraben free formula that contains a high-tech mattifying blend of Veegum (a natural clay derivative) and Silica which can absorb up to 3x its weight in oil.

The Optical Illusion Complexion Primer ($38 CAD) is a stunning velvety soft, lightweight primer that instantly blurs flaws and gives you a perfected complexion. It delivers a true optical illusion with a veil of scattered light and blurring pigments that give skin a soft-focus, airbrushed effect. 

The cushioned formula glides on smoothly, filling in lines and smoothing out the skin to reduce the look of pores and fine lines. It features a slight pink tint that helps to illuminate the complexion before drying down to a translucent, matte finish and is formulated with argan, rosehip, and meadowfoam seed oils that provide moisturizing and antioxidant benefits. 

The Self Adjusting Complexion Primer ($38 CAD) is a truly unique product with a colour correcting formula that features encapsulated beads of pigments that actually adjust to your skin tone. The beads are suspended inside the primer and they burst on the skin adapting as you apply it. 

It can be worn alone as a base or under makeup as the first step in your routine. It is incredibly versatile as it releases more pigment the longer you blend. The formula features Vitamin E and corn powder to absorb oil and control shine and it perfects and blurs. 

Urban Decay has everything you could possibly need to start your makeup off on the right foot, which spray and primer would you use?
