During the summer months I struggle to find the will to wear a lot of makeup because it’s usually super hot out. However, it was a bit cooler on Monday so I thought I’d finally play with the Makeup Revolution Forever Flawless Constellation Palette that I picked up last month at Ulta! In typical me fashion I was drawn to the purple shades. I did want to do something a bit brighter but I thought cool tones would suit my outfit better. Continue reading →
Almay is a brand that I haven’t really had much exposure to. I know many people who rave about their products but just hadn’t gotten around to trying them for myself. I was trilled to be able to try a bunch of Almay’s new products for spring which were recently gifted to me for review purposes. The products that I will be featuring for this post range from eyeshadows to lip glosses. Keep on reading for my first impressions and two makeup looks using these products. Continue reading →
I love a good mail day. Yesterday my Orabel order arrived which made it a great mail day. I’ve followed Orabel for quite awhile on Instagram but this was actually my first time ordering from them. Orabel is a Canadian online store that brings brands typically found on American and European websites to Canadians. My focus for this order was Makeup Revolution products but I also threw in a Morphe product to get myself over the free shipping threshold. Continue reading →
Hi guys! I am by no means a skincare expert, but today I thought I would share with you the routine that seems to work for my face. I have fairly oily skin so I tend to go for daytime products that are made for my skin type. Since I’m oily, I don’t want to use products that may contribute to my oiliness under my makeup. I’m less fussy at night since I know I’m going to just sleep and then wash off the products in the morning. I’m going to break down my skincare products into three categories, face washes, makeup removers and moisturizers.

Hi guys! Today I have for you an all drugstore, budget friendly, easy and quick makeup look! This was a request that I had from a friend which I was excited to work on. This was fun to do and everything was purchased in town! This is a look that could be worn every day as it is very neutral. You could switch it up by adding some eyeliner and changing out the lip colour for something more dramatic.
Foundation: L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation in Classic Ivory
Concealer: Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Concealer in Ivory
Powder: Maybelline Fit Me! Matte and Poreless Mattifying Face Powder in Translucent
Blush: e.l.f. Studio Blush Palette in Light (I used the top right shade)
Highlight: Wet n Wild Walking on Eggshells Trio – Browbone shade (very lightly on my cheekbones)
Eyes: Wet n Wild Walking on Eggshells Trio – Crease shade (in the crease, outer edge of eye lid and under eye), Eyelid shade (all over lid and inner part of under eye) and Brow Bone shade (on brow bone and blended down). L’Oreal Voluminous Miss Manga Mascara in Black Brown (2 coats).
Brows: L’Oreal Brow Stylist Plumper in Light to Medium
Lips: Milani Moisture Matte Lipstick in Blissful (it looks shiny in the picture because it hasn’t dried down, it dries very matte. This formula is a bit drying so you may want to use lip balm first)
This look only took about 10 minutes to do and it is definitely every day appropriate. I was very impressed by the e.l.f. Studio Blush Palette! The shades were very pigmented and blendable. I would suggest using a very light hand to avoid over-doing it. The Wet n Wild was another stand-out item as it was so pigmented for being so inexpensive. I’m definitely going to try more of their eye sets.
