MOTD: Purple + Glitter

Today's MOTD is all about purple and glitter!! I attended IMATS Toronto this past weekend and I was so excited to pick up some new products from companies I've never tried before. I grabbed a few gorgeous glitters from Lit Cosmetics and I am so impressed. I'm not much for glitter on an everyday basis but I love it for adding drama to creative looks or for a night out. The Lit Glitters are paired…See More

Kat Von D Beauty Shade and Light Creme Palette

Ever since Kat Von D Beauty teased the creme version of the cult favourite Shade and Light Powder Contour Palette I was OBSESSED!!! I live for the powder version and there isn't a day I do my makeup that I don't use it so you know I had to get the creme version for sure.The palette contains 6 different shades, 3 highlight, 3 contour and they are very close to the shades in the powder palette but do vary slightly (though they look like the same kind of undertones). Let me tell you, I am living…See More

Favorite Palettes: Eyeshadow Edition

I've been doing a lot of reorganizing lately, including my vanity and it inspired me to pick out some of my favorite palettes in my collection. It was not easy to narrow them down by any means so I sorted them into three categories: Warm, Cool, and Accent/Fun Palettes (aka a palette I wouldn't necessarily use on it's own).  Even after sorting them, I still wanted to include more but then that would kind of defeat the purpose wouldn't it?Warm Palettes:I decided to just choose three palettes for…See More

Review: Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Palette

What a wild week in the internet world with the release of the highly anticipated Subculture Palette! I,  along with many others, have been eagerly awaiting the follow up to last years smash Modern Renaissance Palette so when all of these horrible reviews started popping up I was really confused! I can't believe the backlash I've seen against this palette, it seems you either love it or hate it and there's not much in between. I like to read reviews but I always try something for myself before…See More

Sephora Pro Palette Warm Review

I feel like the new Sephora Pro palettes are the surprise of the summer because they came out of nowhere but wow, are they good! I had to have the Warm version as soon as I saw it because it's like the Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette, Natasha Denona Sunset Palette and Colourpop Yes Please! Palette all came together to create this gorgeous lovechild that is the Sephora Pro Warm Palette. As someone who owns none of the palettes listed above this palette was really calling out to me!The palette…See More

Huda Beauty 3D Highlighter Palette: Golden Sands Edition Review

I know this isn't a super new release but I am so obsessed with the Huda Beauty 3D Highlighter Palette that I needed to share it with all of you! This palette comes with four different shades: one cream and three powder highlighters. The three powders are broken up into one really light shade, one darker bronze shade for adding definition and one rosier shade to use as a sort of blush topper for added glow. This palette retails for $59 CAD and I purchased it at Sephora. I went back and forth on…See More

Kat Von D Beauty Shade and Light Glimmer Palette Review

If you're anything like me than you've been anxiously awaiting the release of the brand new Shade and Light Glimmer Palette from Kat Von D Beauty!The original Shade and Light Eye Contour Palette was one of my first high end palettes and it still holds a very special place in my heart when it comes to all matte neutrals. So when they teased its sister palette, the Glimmer version, I was so happy!The Glimmer palette features 12 shades which match the original shades from the first palette. They…See More

Sephora Mini Haul: Anastasia Beverly Hills Summer '17 Collection

Sephora finally released the Summer '17 Collection from Anastasia Beverly Hills and I am so happy! Since I live in Canada it can get quite pricey to purchase anything online from brands directly after the exchange rate, taxes, and duties. So when Anastasia Beverly Hills released the Moon Child Glow Kit exclusively on their website I cried internally for many months. I couldn't justify spending like $90 on a…See More

MOTD: Bright Green Eyes and Metallic Purple Lips

Whenever I get the chance to really have some fun with makeup I take it! It doesn't happen very often as a mom of two children under the age of 3. Usually the only time I get to do anything makeup related is when we are all going out somewhere so it needs to very wearable (you know, Costco appropriate!) so it's exciting to experiment and be creative.Today's MOTD is a really fun look featuring neon green eyeliner and metallic purple lips. My favorite liquid lipsticks to use as eyeliners are…See More

Review: Too Faced Glitter Bomb Palette

Too Faced recently released their new Summer '17 collection, which included the Glitter Bomb Prismatic Eyeshadow Palette! This palette contains 8 shades of pressed glitter shadows and 2 base shades, which are essentially a black and white eyeshadow. The palette retails for $54 CAD and can be purchased on their website, as well as at Sephora. I haven't been a huge fan of Too Faced's recent releases so I was a bit hesitant when it came to this palette. I honestly went back and forth for days on…See More

MOTD: Glam Purple Eyeshadow

Today's MOTD is all about purple! Not only is it my favorite color, it's also the best shade of shadow for my green eyes. I love wearing purple and mauve shadows because they really do make my eyes pop! I also tried out a bunch of new products with this look that I have picked up recently like the Aurora Glow Kit and…See More

MOTD: Roller Derby Game Day Makeup!

I recently began playing roller derby (less than a year ago) and it's honestly the best thing ever! It's such an intense sport and has totally boosted my confidence and helped me come to not completely hate my post baby (actually, babies) body. Plus it's also crazy fun! I always like to go a little more dramatic with my game day makeup and have some fun with it!My team's name is Toronto Vipers so with this look I wanted to play on the serpent theme a bit and I went with a smokey green eye and…See More

MOTD: Classic Wing and Bold Orange Lip

I have just been so busy these days, it's absolutely crazy! I haven't had nearly as much time as I would like to spend doing creative makeup looks and have had to opt for faster, simpler makeup. That's not always a bad thing though, as the classics are classic for a reason.When I am short on time, my go to look is definitely a classic cat eye paired with a bold lip color. I think when these two are paired together it really makes a statement without putting too much effort into it, or even…See More

MOTD: Pink Eyeliner and Pink Lips

With the temperatures rising it's time to break out all of those bright colors I normally reserve for summer (although I really will wear anything at anytime, regardless of season because when the mood strikes to wear dark brown lipstick in summer, I am definitely gonna wear it!) There is something so fun about switching things up every season and stepping out of your comfort zone a little bit. Today's MOTD is all about the color pink! Let's be real though, I kind of don't like pink, like at…See More

Galaxy Makeup Look

Hi, Today's makeup is on my beautiful model, Angela.The makeup is strong but at the same time it emphasizes the eyes.This makeup is ideal for an evening out.This makeup is mainly about good blending of the shadows on the eyelid and choosing the right proportions.This look does not require a lot of cosmetics but needs a bit of skill. This stunning blue shadow by Nabla was applied all over the eyelids blending towards the brow bone. I also smudged this shade across the entire lower lashline.For…See More
