Join us in our Walk against Breast Cancer

 October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and this year +City Color Cosmetics  is joining the +American Cancer Society for their annual "Making Strides Against Breast Cancer" walk taking place on Saturday, October 18, 2014 at +Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE .

Why We are Making Strides
Almost everyone has been touched by breast cancer in some way, so we've decided to make a difference by walking and raising money in our local American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event.

Today 1 of every 2 women newly diagnosed with breast cancer reaches out to the American Cancer Society for help and support. The donations our team raises will enable investment in groundbreaking breast cancer research, free information and services for women diagnosed with the disease, and access to mammograms for women who need them. Our donations will help more than 2.9 million breast cancer survivors celebrate another birthday this year!

Why We Support the American Cancer Society

Saving lives from breast cancer starts one team, one walker, and one dollar at a time. We know that the American Cancer Society is the leader in the fight to end breast cancer. We know that supporting them will ensure that if you need someone to talk to anytime of the day or night, they’ll be there. If your friend is losing her hair from chemo, your mother needs a ride to treatment, or a loved one needs a place to stay when treatment is far from home, they will be there to help.

Also, volunteers who walk with our team and donate a minimum of $25 will receive a City Color Tote Bag filled with City Color Goodies !*

 *valid only for those who attend the event on 10/18/14 while supplies last

4 Tips to get you Contouring like a Pro

We get asked questions all the time on how to get a flawless contoured look, so we sat down with our very own  celebrity make up artist NeCee Wilson to get the scoop on some tips she uses when contouring her clients.  Every woman wants that flawless looking face and glowing skin and with theses few tips and tricks you can achieve any look you are going for.

Tip 1: "Beauty is only Skin Deep"

This old saying is actually very true. "Beauty starts with smooth, healthy, glowing skin. Understanding how your skin works is the key", said celebrity make up artist NeCee . Skin types vary from dry to normal to oily to sensitive or even a combination of a few. It is important to identify you skin type and treat it properly.

Tip 2: "Begin with a good foundation"

To create any flawless beauty look you must begin with a great foundation. With so many types to choose from NeCee reminds us that there is one important thing to consider. "When choosing any foundation, concealers, or correctors you must always look at undertone. Your undertone will help you with picking the correct match." A great corrector palette to hide imperfections is the City Color Cosmetics Corrector Palette, that comes in 5 correcting shades.

Tip 3: "Know your Shape" 

Every face is shaped differently. Some common face shapes include: Round, Square, Oblong, Oval and heart shaped. Two helpful tips to remember when contouring is that the , 1. The darker contour color is meant to make areas you contour appear smaller or deep set and 2. The highlight color will bring out and brighten the areas you choose to highlight.

Tip 4: "Follow the Rules"

Contour Effects Palette

Necee Wilson, who's been contouring dozens of faces over the years as a make up artist gave us some simple rules to follow when contouring your face:

1.Keep it light in the center, and shadowy at the edges
 2. Start (contouring) at your temple, check bone and follow to your jaw line. Follow the natural contours of your face.
 3. Less is more. Start with less product either powder or cream products. You can always add more later.
 4. Blend with light stippling circular motions with either a contour or small angled blush brush.
 5. Set blush in between the bronzer and highlight and finish with a setting spray."

Use these tips and the City Color Cosmetics Contour Effects Palette to get you contouring like a Pro!

Generation Beauty was so much Fun!

Who attended Generation Beauty by Ipsy this weekend? City Color Cosmetics did, and we had a blast!
Generation Beauty was held in Los Angeles, CA this past weekend at L.A. Live .

The event kicked off with an  invite-only mixer held at  The YouTube Space center in LA, where beauty bloggers got to sit down for an exclusive Q &A with Ipsy Founder, Michelle Phan, followed by mixing and mingling with fellow beauty bloggers while munching on  Hors d'oeuvres  and cocktails.

Day 1 of Generation Beauty at LA Live started off fabulous! Attendees enjoyed Q&A panels with some of their favorite Beauty Bloggers, like Elle Fowler and Blair Fowler and also had the chance to participate in exciting beauty activities like our own "Name that Color" contest, where participants had the chance to come up with new names for our New Creamy Lip Stains.

Day 2 was definitely our fav! City Color Cosmetics enjoyed the honors of hosting an exclusive meet in greet with Beauty Bloggers Chrisspy Makeup, Desi Perkins, Christen Dominique and Secretlifeofabionerd!! Attendees also had the special opportunity to be contoured by our very own celebrity makeup artist, Necee Wilson.

 This was definitely an event you don't wanna miss next year. Until then.....xoxo City Girls.
