It feels like it has taken a looong time to get here but Easter is finally right around the corner. In the spirit of Easter, and spring, I thought it would be fun to create a makeup look inspired by this colourful time of the year. I’ve been itching to use some of the blue/teal Colourpop pressed eyeshadows that I hauled a little while ago so I knew I had to incorporate those. I don’t wear blues/teals very often so I added in some pink to balance it out a bit. Let’s take a closer look at the Easter Makeup Look that I created! Continue reading
It’s that time of the year again where our social media feeds fill with the colour green! Though I don’t have any plans to go out for St. Patrick’s Day, I thought I would put together a green makeup look to share with you guys for the occasion! Funny enough, by complete fluke, I am wearing the same lipstick that I paired with my St. Patricks Day Look last year! Continue reading
As usual I had a pretty low-key NYE at home with some close friends, but despite that, I always do something special with my makeup for the occasion. This year I decided to bust out my Huda Beauty Amethyst Obsessions Palette for the first time because ending and starting a year with purple makeup just seemed right. It ended up being a very purple-centric look and I ain’t mad at that!
Holiday party season is upon us! While I am personally more of a hermit (hello fellow introverts!) I do enjoy putting together makeup looks for the occasion. There are three things that I think are essential to any classic makeup look I put together… silver eyeshadow, glitter and a red lip! So let’s chat about three products that I think fit the bill for holiday party essentials! Continue reading
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Halloween is my favourite holiday! I just love getting dressed up and going out! It’s so much fun. I usually start thinking about and planning for halloween a few months in advance however with how busy this summer and fall were, I ended up pulling together costumes for myself and my husband less than a week before the event we went to last weekend. I decided to be a devil, which meany my husband ended up being an angel. Considering how little time it took to put together these costumes I’m quite pleased with how they turned out!
The inspiration for the devil costume really does centre around makeup. I wanted to do something dark and a devil was the first thing that came to mind.
Happy Easter, everyone! It’s been a bit of a quiet week over here on the blog, but it’s sure been a busy one. I don’t know why I thought it would be less busy but I definitely didn’t have time to finish up the posts that I had planned. Anyways, in the spirit of Easter, I thought I’d share with you a colourful Easter makeup look that I did for an event this weekend. I used the Violet Voss The Rainbow Eyeshadow Palette which I should be doing a review on in the coming weeks. It’s a great palette for doing fun makeup looks like this one!
Happy St Patrick’s Day! I actually was out celebrating a night ahead of the real day so I thought I’d share with you the St Patrick’s Day makeup look that I created. Every time I wear green eye shadow I remember why I love it and wish that I wore it more often. I really need to do it more often than just on St Patrick’s Day. While my plans tonight are a bit quieter (I’m going with the husband to see a comedy show), I think I’ll do another green eye makeup look anyways. Why not?
I couldn’t let today pass without sharing a special Valentine’s Day makeup look for the occasion. I enjoy wearing pink all year round but Valentine’s Day inspires me to load up on the pink products and I ain’t complaining about it. This year I created a soft pink look with a bright pink glossy lip. If you’re feeling extra Valentine’s-y I also posted a Valentine’s Day Manicure earlier this week!
I feel like I’m way behind on my usual holiday makeup looks for the Christmas season but the time has just been flying by. With how accelerated time feels this may end up being my only holiday look for this season, but we’ll see! I’m trying to cram in as much as I can before going out of town this weekend between trying to see all my loved ones and getting ready to go. This holiday look isn’t anything dramatic or bold, but is a look that is easy to pull together. I’ve done a gold/neutral eye paired with a merlot red lipstick. I think this is a stunning combination! For my eye makeup I’ve busted out my tried and true Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette.
Last year I posted about my Top 5 Holiday Lipsticks so I thought this year I would continue that and add a few more festive lipsticks to the list. These are three lipsticks that I think are perfect for the holiday season and you can bet I will be wearing them a lot over the next month.
Aren’t they beautiful?! Swatches to follow at the end of this post!
Hail Cosmetics | Eternal Matte Lipstick in Wined
Starting off my list is Hail Cosmetics Wined which is in their Eternal Matte Lipstick formula. It isn’t your traditional holiday season red but I think that’s why I love it so much. It is more of a merlot red and pairs well with any holiday inspired look. Not to mention, Hail Cosmetics is hand-crafted right here in Thunder Bay! The formula is great, it reminds me a lot of the NARS Audacious Lipsticks, except for these are cruelty-free, so if that is something you look for, then be sure check out this line of lipsticks!
