5 Fragrances To Borrow From Your Man | Clozette
Men’s fragrances usually smell clean, sleek and whole. What sets them apart from feminine fragrances is that they are usually composed of floral and citrus notes – but just because musk and peppers are typically associated with masculine scents doesn't mean we can’t enjoy them as well. 

Here are a few fragrances designed for men that we can see ourselves stealing from our boyfriends’ collections:

--------------------------

Boss Orange Man



Composed with spicy notes of fresh apple, vanilla, warm incense and African Bubinga wood, it is an exotic scent great for days you want to channel that devil-may-care attitude. A woman who embodies fun and spontaneity would embrace this scent as well.
Dolce&Gabbana Light Blue Pour Homme



Its refreshing, summery composition is similar to Light Blue Pour Femme but it includes more herbs such as rosemary and Brazilian rose wood. If you prefer a “greener” version of Light Blue, then opt for the men’s version.


Gucci Guilty Pour Homme



The fragrance opens with invigorating lavender and lemon, and is supported by warm woody accords of cedar and patchouli, giving the scent an exciting and luxurious allure – perfect for the go-getting woman.


Penhaligon’s LP No. 9


This powdered fragrance features ylang-ylang and spices at its heart, and vanilla, patchouli, musk and amber as the base notes – all in all, exuding a warm and seductive scent that is meant to be worn on glamorous evenings.


Bleu de Chanel

This fragrance is made of interesting spices: labdanum, nutmeg, ginger, sandalwood, mint, jasmine, grapefruit, citruses, vetiver, incense, cedar and pink pepper. The heady combination makes for a complex, woody aroma that is both refreshing and energising.

My favourite thing about watching YouTube beauty videos is the wealth of information I learn about the latest brand releases, what products to stay away from, and the makeup looks to try in time for the fall season. So I did another YouTube binge this week and watched a bunch of beauty videos.

Here are the top 6 videos that stood out:

DRUGSTORE DUPES | Tom Ford, MAC, YSL, OCC Lip Tar

Loving and hoarding makeup can become quite an expensive hobby. So when you need to cut down on your makeup spending but still want to add new colours to your collection, then dupes is the way to go. This videos has really great dupes for high-end products. 

Plus points: she wears the dupe and high-end product at the same time. See if you can spot the difference!

September Favorites 2014

Monthly Favourites videos are really popular on YouTube mostly due to our collective curiosity over what products other girls have been using throughout the month. I personally don't deviate much from my skincare and makeup routine from month to month, so this video is a great way to see other products that are out there that I may want to try in the future. 

Side note: missglamorazzi (aka Ingrid) has oily skin. So if you have oily skin, she's the beauty guru to watch. Her recommendations have worked really well for me.

My Night Time Skin Care Routine | Fall 2014

Removing my makeup after a long day is always the best feeling in the world, next to the relaxing feeling of layering skincare just before bed. A good night time skincare regiment is the best thing you can do for your skin as it allows the products to sink in and work as you sleep. Skin care routine videos such as this, is a great way to see what other girls are using--perfect for when you run out of your favourite serum and want to try something else.

Disappointing Products

I've recovered quite a bit from my skincare and makeup hoarding habit. I used to be terrible at buying loads of products only to be disappointed by them and stashing them away in my cabinet, never to be seen again. Videos such as this have helped me cut back on my spending. I now know what to stay away from whenever I am in the mood to purchase new products. Of course, products work differently on different people--what may be deemed rubbish to some could actually be a holy-grail product for another. But it's always good to arm yourself with good and bad reviews of products so you can make a more informed choice and not just throw your money at a hyped product.

TUTORIAL: Fall Vampy Makeup

It's finally fall season and that can only mean one thing: dark, vampy lips! I love my go-to pink and red lipsticks for most of the year; but when the fall season comes around and the weather starts to cool down (even just a little bit!), I gravitate towards darker shades. This makeup tutorial is perfect for the season, paired with a comfy sweater for a relaxed, night out with your friends.

Birthday Makeup

Birthdays are great. Everyone loves birthdays. But when you're a YouTube beauty guru and celebrating your birthday, the best way to do so is to play around with your makeup and create a special birthday look for yourself. The thick winged eye-liner and soft smoky eye is the perfect hey-it's-my-birthday look. 

Side note: I love how she started a tradition of purchasing one new makeup palette every year for her birthday. I should do the same.

When it comes to makeup, there are a few products that every girl should absolutely stock up on. Boho or classic, glamorous or minimalistic, no matter what your makeup style is, these are five makeup items that work with every look and every woman.

--------------------------

Foundation

Tom Ford Traceless Foundation

Everyone, and I mean everyone, needs a good foundation. A “good” foundation won’t make you look like you’re wearing makeup but instead will make your skin just look even better – like you’ve just returned from a restful holiday. The key is to choose the right shade, texture, and finish. 
Mascara 


Benefit They`re Real Mascara

The path to pretty peepers is paved with mascara. Mascara lengthens and adds volume to lashes to make your eyes look bigger and more beautiful. Make sure to restock this every three months, as bacteria can grow in dried mascara tubes leading to a risk of infection.


Eyeliner


Yves Saint Laurent Automatique Eyeliner Effet Faux Cils

Add definition, lift droopy eyes, tightline, and create drama with your eyeliner. Whether you choose to get it in a pen form or work with a gel liner and brush, this is one makeup product you should always have handy.


Brow pencil gel 


Cle de Peau Beaute Eyebrow & Eyeliner Compact

Your brows can totally transform the way you look, so pay attention to them. Fill them in with light feathery strokes with a pencil or powder one shade lighter than your natural brows. This will help define them without making them look too stark or heavy.


Red lipstick


MAC Lipstick in Lady Danger

Trends will come and go, but a scarlet pout is here to stay. Over seasons, it may change from matte to glossy to sheer and back to matte, but the red lipstick is a main stay in every celebrity makeup artist’s kit and should be in yours too. Not a fan of bold lips? Use the lipstick as a stain instead. It will add a dash of colour without overpowering your look.
