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…

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.…

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).  …

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…

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…

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…

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…

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.…

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…

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!…

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.…

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…

April Favorites!

Maybe it's just me, but I feel like companies having been launching new products and collections every couple of months and it's getting hard to keep up! I love it obviously, because who doesn't love new makeup? But as someone with a decent size collection of makeup already, I've decided to become a little pickier when it comes to my purchases. I am more patient with my purchases, waiting to read…

MOTD: Glossy Lids and Black Lips

If you've been following my blog posts at all I think you'll start to notice a trend - I love bold lipstick colors!

Lipstick is probably my can't…

MOTD: Bold Blue Lips and Reverse Smokey Eye

Today's MOTD is a bold look that's not necessarily suitable for everyday, but I really have a lot of fun creating funky, edgier looks every now and then. As a mom of 2 (super) young children, I don't usually get an opportunity to do my makeup other than when I am going out somewhere and I make it a priority. As a result, most of my makeup looks tend to be more neutral and tame so when I get an…

MOTD: Pastel Purple Eyes and Lips

Spring has officially sprung here in Toronto and I couldn't be happier! The weather these last few days has been so gorgeous and lovely and it's definitely inspiring me to change up my makeup routine to include some lighter and brighter colors. I can't give up my dark, vampy lips completely because I love them too much but I do gravitate towards brighter colors in spring and summer, most of the…
