Get the Look: Bold Red Lips

Tuesday, December 29, 2015
I have been slowing collecting Make-up to have my very own "Make-Up Collection" and must say I'm coming along really nicely. One of the things I've also been doing is experimenting a lot more with Make-up Looks especially Lipstick.  One of my favorite looks is a Bold Lip , Subtle Cat Eyes and Foundation. I'm not at that Bronze , Blush and Contouring stage just yet but we must start somewhere right?


I recently received the YVES SAINT LAURENT YSL TOUCHE ECLAT PEACH RADIANCE from hairtrade.com and it could not have come at a better time! 
Hairtrade.com is one of the UK's leading online retailers of hair care and beauty products. They provide a wide range of hair extensions products and over 40 successful beauty, hair care and hair electrical brands. Every 3 months I am sent a product/s to review.
The Product retails for £19.00 on the Hairtrade which is a bit much if you are just starting out but as you know the Yves Saint Laurent brand is synonymous with luxury. It's like a magical beauty pen that can be used to conceal dark circles and highlight your best features. At first I had no idea how it worked until I read the directions that comes inside the box. It is highly recommended that you read the directions for best use of this product. To get things going , it is recommenced that you give the base of the pen 30 squeezes to get the product all the way to the top. I must admit that I was a bit ... scared to use the product just because of how light it is! It however blended seamlessly into my skin and a little goes a long way. I think of it as an all purpose beauty product because it can be used to cover dark circles , highlight , contour and giving the skin a radiant appearance.The product features a small , soft angled brush that makes it easy to apply because of the precision.

BEFORE

AFTER
I was able to create a fresh festive look for an Office party I went to using the YSL TOUCHE ECLAT PEACH RADIANCE and it lasted all night. This look was really simple and all you need is Foundation , Mascara , Lipstick , Black Eyeliner and of course the Ysl Touche Eclat Peach Radiance.

I gave the product 10/10 because it met all my expectations and infact exceeded them. I would not only recommend this to a friend but treat them to it as a nice gift.

My TryDry Experience with Dove

Monday, December 28, 2015
The festivities of Christmas is over and we are now focused on New Year Events and resolutions. As a woman, one of the things I pay the most attention to is personal hygiene. It is always said that when we meet people for the first time the one thing that lingers is scent. For this festive season there will be tons of dresses and no one wants to have that deodorant scuff right? Dove has recently launched a Dry Spray Antiperspirant and I was able to test it .


The thing that stood out to me the most is the packaging; it's not basic nor is it over the top.The size of the canister is small enough to carry in a medium size bag and large enough to last several week. The scent I received is Fresh Cucumber!


When I spray this under my arms I don't need to use perfume .. it really is fresh. I really smell it when I leave the room then re-enter. According to the information on the can , it lasts up to 48 hours. I know you are thinking that's crazy because certainly no sane person will go without intentionally showering for 48 hours! With that being said I can't say it lasts 48 hours because I actually showered. But I will tell you that it's fresh. I like how simple it is to use , all you do is take the top off , shake and spray under your arms. Be sure to hold the can a little distance from your arms because it has a cool sensation. The greatest thing about this spray is that there is no "dry time", no longer will you have to wait until the deodorant dries then put on your clothes. It dries right away!

To sum things up my #trydry experience was a positive one and I actually switched from my previous deodorant this Dove Dry Spray.

What is your favorite deodorant?

The Daily Commute : My "Go To" Laptop Bag from Swissgear

Thursday, December 24, 2015
As an extremely busy Millennial always on the go, there are a few staple items I consider a must have for those hectic days. These items include my Car (obvie), Phones and of course my Laptop. My Laptop is my very own mobile office and I always need to ensure it's well protected (Laptops are not cheap and they are not light). There will be lots of back and forth travelling during this festive season and I wanted to ensure all my favorite staple items are within reach. I was recently able to update my Laptop "bag" to something more presentable and professional. Enter the Swissgear 1191 Delux LaptopBackpack.

SWISSGEAR 3265 Laptop Backpack (r) | Swissgear 1191 Delux Laptop Backpack  (l )
This bag might look like your regular run of the mill Backpack but it's so much more than that! The design of this versatile Backpack makes it not only portable but mobile. No No , the Bag cannot move by itself but it has mobile connectivity. This amazing Bag has: Padded Laptop Sleeves (which fits laptops up to 15”), Shoulder Strap System, Air Flow System, Water Bottle Pocket, Organizer Pocket and Audio Interface. Swissgear is the brand that is synonymous with quality knives which made me even want to get the backpack even more. I was most impressed with the placement of the water bottle pocket and the way the water did not seep through other compartments of my bag and totally soaked everything.

 My daily commute has me starting from home to the nearest Coffee Shop with High Speed Internet, Meetings or just checking out a few stores for inspiration. One major thing I like about this Backpack is how lightweight it is which makes walking around a breeze! Usually I would take my Handbag and a random "other" bag which is always cumbersome since they are both too much and the space at the Coffee Shop is small. 


My Swissgear Backpack allows me to take all my personal items and devices in one convenient place while keeping them protected. There is padding in all the compartments of the bag to ensure your valuables are kept well intact. I especially like that the bag is travel friendly which I was able to put to the test by taking a quick trip and it was not at all heavy or bulky. As a millennial on the go I am always looking for trendy yet functional items and I’m proud to say this Backpack is a nice combination of both.

I want to hear about your travel/commute stories .. what is your favorite travel backpack? Let's make this a thing by using #swissgear

2015 Year In Review

Tuesday, December 22, 2015
Hi Guys!


The support this year has been immense and I must thank you. 2015 was definitely a challenging year personally and if it was not for this Blog and your kinds comments and words of encouragement I seriously would not be this positive and hopeful. The photos above represent some of my fondest moments this year and while there are a lot more these are the most symbolic. As we go into a new year you will see many new changes .. there are many of you who may not like these changes while there are others who will welcome it. One of this plans for 2016 is to take Haute People Global which means more quality and diverse posts. As I wrap up on my final posts for the year .. I still have a few brand related posts ( that must go up ) but have decided to give myself one week of rest and will be back on January 11,2015. Let's make #hautepeoplewemadeit a thing on Social Media.

Miss Universe 2015 is ... NOT Miss Columbia

Monday, December 21, 2015
Cue the memes and embarrassing hashtags. Steve Harvey played host to this years staging of Miss Universe 2015 in Las Vegas and what an experience it was!



Steve Harvey is a notorious American Comedian who is known for his T.V show the "Steve Harvey Show" and his best selling book turned film "Act Like A Lady Think Like a Man". Being host at a pageant was not something we never expected him to do but it was great to lighten the audience and tension at the usually stuffy pageant.


Then came that magic moment when Steve was suppose to announce the winner and he announced the wrong one. Both girls are non native English speakers and looked utterly confused when he announced the wrong winner then tell her she didn't win and then announce the correct one. That's like walking into a Toyota dealer then coming out with a Benz ( thinking you scored ) only to have them call you to return the Benz. Steve Harvey took to Twitter to apologize.

Best Christmas Gifts for Millenials

Friday, December 11, 2015
"Chestnuts roasting on an open fire ... Jack-frost nipping at your Nose ... Millennials with their eyes open wide! Millennials are a special breed , we believe we are entitled to just about everything in life and gifts are no different.


Ensure when you go over your Christmas list you check the items three times for the Millennial in your life. If you are clutching at straws with what to buy , this handy list will help you out.

A Computer: We are always online which means we need to be connected at all times. A computer to a millennial is like a car ... it means freedom to create opportunities and connect with people. Be sure to get one that has great storage as spaces will be filled quite quickly with Videos and Photos.

Bill Payment: Because we are so innovative trying to come up with the next "Big Zuckenburg" idea , we might miss a few Bills. The"Gift of Bill Payment" is one of those gifts that is intangible but will have you in our good graces.


A Mini Vacation:The pressures of everyday life weigh heavy on the shoulders of the millennial. One of the best gifts you can give is a mini vacation even if its in the same country or even city. I guarantee you when we return we will be fresh with new ideas and ready to conquer the world.

Money: I know there are many talks about money and it being the root of all evil and it not being able to buy happiness. NOT having money is even worst; millennials try their hands at just about everything to getting money from selling T-Shirts to even clothing. The gift of cold hard cash is one of the best gifts you can give. If you want to make us smile even more , you can sponsor an event we are planning or investing in one of our business ideas.


What are you most looking forward to this season?

Top 5 Female Holiday Fragrances

Wednesday, December 9, 2015
"Perfumes are a personal choice and should be what fits you and your own personality ".


These are the words of Marie Solis General Manager of Eurobrands with vast experiences in fragrances and General Manager of Maison Chic here in Kingston Jamaica. Maison Chic is a quaint perfume shoppe in Tropical Plaza. The minute you enter the store it's like you have been transported to the cobble stone roads in Europe to one of the finest perfumeries. Haute People recently stopped by Maison Chic to discover the Top 5 Female scents for the Holiday.

Olympea Invictus


Olympea represents the equivalent of the masculine Invictus launched in 2013. This fragrance is based on the concept of a modern goddess and evokes strength, dynamism and conquests. This fragrance has both salty and floral composites. 

Versace Eros


"Eros is the God of Love" and according to Donatella Versace , the goal of this fragrance is to suggest that Eros was seduced which shows the power of a woman. This is an extremely sensual scent and women like it because of the bottle; it really stands out and is a statement piece for any dresser.

L'Extase


This erotic fragrance by Nina Ricci encourages women to act on their deepest fantasies.  L'Extase invites you to "liberate your fantasies." The design of the bottle imitates the clutch from the archive designs of Nina Ricci.

Carolina Herrera 


This is the perfect fragrance for the modern self confident woman who knows exactly what she wants and her scent is bold and lingers in the room after she has left. This scent is classic and timeless with a luxurious scent with nodes of Jasmine , Rose and Orange blossom.


Love Rock! by Shakira


This is one of the more affordable scents for the everyday women! We all know Shakira as the Colombian Bombshell with Hips for Days! This scent is fresh , crisp and citrusy which is sure to be a statement for the holiday. It is said to capture Shakira's energy she feels on stage from her fans .. Imagine a scent that literally bursts with energy;

If you are wondering what to get the special woman in your life ( or even yourself ) any of these scents would be greatly appreciated and she is sure to love you for it! It is important to note that scents will differ by geographical location ; what might be popular in one country , might not even be available in another. If you are in Kingston Jamaica , be sure to check out Maison Chic.

Get the Look : Day to Night Fall Look

Monday, December 7, 2015
With the festive season come numerous events and get togethers. It can be hard figuring out what to wear to all these events and how to coordinate your make-up to match with these looks. If you are one of those ladies always on the go , this make-up look is perfect for you!

The best part about this look is you only need a few products ( which can all fit in your handbag ) and you won't even have to spend hours doing your face.


Pick one area to make your "statement" then pick another area that will be "the work around" that you will leave neutral. My statement area were my lips .. In my daytime look they were a neutral shade of purple and the night look I decided to go bold and opt for a darker lip.
My workaround were my eyes .. I used natural earth tone colors like brown and gold , then I was sure to do a subtle cat eye so that there is enough drama to take me all the way to my Night time look. I would recommend using colors that go with just about any outfit you choose.

What is your "go to" day to night make-up look?
