I hope you had a great Passover, Easter, or just a warm spring long weekend!
I recently picked up this great flowy salmon coloured top from Winners, and I just couldn’t wait to style it. Salmon and coral shades in general are very universal and flattering on all skin colours. Which explains why I’m not waiting to be tan to bust this one out!
I chose to pair it with warm colours in various shades of pinks and oranges, and add a pop of blue with my purse – all with some awesome gold hardware. Read more
I wanted to share a quick makeup tutorial of a look I created when we went to the Garrison in Toronto to watch my friend’s band perform.
I recently picked up a lot new makeup at yet another sale. I’ll be posting a complete haul in the next few days, but one of my new purchases included a fantastic gold eye shadow by L’Oreal. In fact I went a bit buck wild when it came to eye shadows, and that’s what this look is revolved around. Read more
Hi Lovelies!! Here are some of my fave products right now. Some I mentioned before others I didn’t but I’m really enjoying all of these so this is my January summary to make sure we’re all looking good and feeling good despite this crazy weather.
Every time I see this awesome “Volcanic” lipstick by L’Oreal in my makeup up stash I feel happy! I find red very dramatic but this orange-y shade just right. I like to use a brush and outline my lips using the same shade, and then fill in the rest. It stays on pretty well without budging, but if you drink or give someone a kiss it will transfer.
Lot’s of makeup posts lately! I guess it’s because I’ve been so excited for the Gather For Brunchkins event coming up tomorrow night – it’s all I’ve been thinking about. Gather for Brunchkins is an event aimed at raising money for Brunchkins which is an organization providing breakfast and a packed lunch for kids in non-profit housing, in the Bowmanville area. If you’d like to come by tomorrow, it’s not too late! There will be tickets at the door for $20. There will be a beautifully motivational talk given by Julia Grieve, wine, food, goodie bags, and make up tutorials by yours truly! The makeup I’ll be using tomorrow will all be by Arbonne Cosmetics. The great thing about Arbonne is that not only does it work really well, but it feels fantastic on your skin due to the fact that it’s paraben free, phthalates free, 100% vegan, doesn’t contain mineral oils, no gluten, no artificial fragrances, and is PETA approved. Yes, it’s good!
To create today’s look though, I used several different brands, and some new products I was eager to try.
The products I’ve never tried before are the Annabelle Bronzer, and Annabelle pencils – both eye and lip ones, And I have to say I’m pretty impressed. The great thing about a lip pencil, and I don’t mean a lip liner, but one you would use for your entire lip, is that you can’t screw up! Just like when you were little you get to colour inside the lines. Maybe it’s just me but I feel that this way you have more control. The other thing I liked about this pencil is that its rather moisturizing and also doesn’t feel like a foreign body annexed to your lips but rather natural and comfortable. The shade I’m wearing is called Vamp and you can find it here.
The awesome thing about weekends is you can let loose! You don’t have to look corporate and mundane. You can experiment with colour and do whatever makes you feel good! You want to try out new shadows? Eyeliner? Different colour lipstick? Go for it!
Here’s a bit on inspo to get you started:
What I used:
To create this look I started with a primer & foundation combo. I didn’t apply bronzer like I usually do because I wanted to stay with the pinks, and apply a cozy pink blush, and light pink lip-gloss.
In Toronto we have an annual event called “Salsa on St.Claire”. The event happens in July when it’s usually warm, if not hot! There is lots of dancing, and food vendors from all over Latin America. It’s a grand time. Yesterday, however, it got rained on! The event still went on, food was delicious, people were dancing, and it was lots of fun, but my straight hair didn’t survive it, and wearing flip flops was a bad decision too.
I knew my hair would be curly by the time i got home – it’s naturally curly and I had no product in it. My makeup on the other hand was flawless! After being in the rain all day I got home to realize nothing happened to my makeup – even my eye shadow was intact. So I felt it necessary to share what exactly I had used that morning and give a quick kudos to these makeup companies. Read more
