My Christmas Gift

Hello Lovelies!
I hope you all had a Wonderful Christmas Weekend.
I haven't been able to Blog since my hubby accidently dropped my camera and it did not go on anymore =(
Fortunately this Christmas he replaced my
 Canon Powershot SD750



With a Canon Powershot 210IS

Powerful 14x Optical Zoom with Optical Image Stabilizer.

Improved Dynamic mode for enhanced image stabilization when shooting movies using the wide-angle setting.

14.1 Megapixel resolution will generate 16.5" x 23.4" prints.

28mm Wide-Angle Lens to capture more in your frame.

Large 3.0-inch wide PureColor System LCD with high resolution (230,400 dots) and wide viewing angle.

HD shooting capability at 720p with stereo sound plus HDMI output for easy playback of video and photos.

DIGIC 4 Image Processor with evolved Face Detection Technology tracks the faces of moving subjects and lets the shooter enter the frame seamlessly with Face Detection Self-Timer.

New scene modes for more creative shooting (Fisheye Effect creates a circular fish-eye appearance and Miniature Effect creates a graduated blur on outer edges of the subject).

Smart AUTO mode (22 Scene) intelligently selects the proper settings for the camera based on the shooting conditions of the scene as well as Face and Motion Detection.

Servo AF/AE continues to focus and track subject while pressing the shutter button halfway.

Smart Flash Exposure produces natural looking photos when using the flash to photograph subjects in strong sunlight, at a close distance to the camera, or using fill flash 



Although I miss my camera so bad, I have to Thank my hubby for replacing it with this one.
I still have to get used to it since it has soo many features, but for now I can start by going Blog Happy and start posting.

If anyone owns this camera, tips on using it will be greatly appreciated. 

Thanks for Stopping by!

NYC BLUSHABLE CREME STICK

Since my skin has been so dry lately, I was told that using creme products can help your makeup stay longer and not look ashy like your powder produtcs may look. So I purchased the NYC Blushable Creme Stick to try this out. I have never been a fan of creme blushes, but after trying this out I actually liked it. My blush did stay on longer and I didn't have the ashy look as I been having lately plus it is an inexpensive product for about $2.99.  They have a pretty good range of colors.
I got these in Plaza Pink which is a gorgeous soft peachy pink color. It's pretty blendable and easy to work with. The color pigmentation is good and is a biuldable color.

Application
I apply this using my Mac 131 brush which is the Duo Fibre Powder and Blush brush.
I stroke the brush over the blush a few times and apply it in circular motions on the apple of my cheeks. I then set it with my blush which is my usual Mac Pink Swoon or Peaches and  you got a nice hydrated unashy look.

This is something that so far has worked for me , I hope this can work for you guys as well.
Let me know what you think if yo have tried it or if there is anything else I can try.


I have a FOTD using this Creme Stick comming soon.
Thank You Lovelies for Stopping By
