NYC Beauty Pro Challenge #1- Times Square

I was recently invited to be a part of the NYC Canada Beauty Pro program! This is super exciting for me and I was glad to take part! Each month, we are sent products and given a theme. Then, we need to create a look and share on our social media. This month, the theme is Times Square.

We were given:
(3) NYC Show Time Velvet Eyeliners
(3) NYC Individual Eyes
(1) NYC Big Bold Volume Mascara

For my look, I used the black velvet eyeliner, the Union Square eyeshadow palette and the mascara. Additionally I used a lipgloss from NYC that I have from my collection.

I've never been to New York before, but I tried to make my look glamorous and chic.

Here are the swatches. The eyeshadows were really finely milled and surprisingly soft. However, it was hard to get the purple to pop on the eyes.

I wanted my look to be effortlessly chic which is how I imagine Times Square to be. Although I know I completely missed the mark in the background :( I live in the suburbs where there are trees everywhere haha

*Also, my mom were taking the photos for me so I was feeling all awkward so please excuse my terrible expressions*

I put the shimmery brown all over my lid, blended with the matte brown. I used the shimmery highlight on my inner corners and I used the purple on my outer V and my lower lash line.

I hope you enjoyed this look! What are some of your favorite NYC products? Have you been to New York before?

If you liked this look, please give it a favorite or retweet here!
