I love going through my makeup collection each season and re-visiting products that remind me the most of said season. For spring I am drawn towards bright colours as well as pastels so I thought I’d share with you 3 pastel highlighters that are perfect for the season.
Becca | Shimmering Skin Perfector in Prismatic Amethyst
Prismatic Amethyst is probably one of my favourite highlighters in my collection. It is a beautiful and pigmented purple-pink shade that looks so stunning on the cheekbones. I love how so little goes a long way so you don’t really need to pack it on to achieve results.
Laura Gellar | Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator in Charming Pink
I have a soft spot for pink highlighters but Charming Pink is probably one of my favourites. It really is great for everyday wear and is buildable.
L to R: Becca Prismatic Amethyst, Colourpop Hippo & Laura Gellar Charming Pink
Colourpop | Super Shock Highlighter in Hippo
Who doesn’t love a budget friendly product? Colourpop makes fabulous highlighters and their Super Shock formula is just so unique. A couple quick taps of this product to the cheekbones makes this so user friendly. The icy lavender shade, Hippo, is actually quite wearable as it doesn’t look too purple on the skin.
What are your favourite highlighters for spring? Let me know in the comments below.
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
With each new season it’s fun to look through my makeup collection and think about which lipsticks I think will define the next few months. Spring typically inspires us to start wearing brighter colours (even when the forecast is still a bit cold and snowy) so it’s no surprise that it’s a common theme with my top 5 choices for spring lipsticks this year.

Spring is a season that seems to be associated with bright colours, flowers and the grass finally turning green. However, here in Thunder Bay the reality is grey snow banks, possibly more snow and slightly warmer temperatures. The green grass and bright colours don’t come until much later… usually RIGHT before summer temperatures hit. So, I thought today I’d share a makeup look that reminds me more of the spring that I experience so I’ve used darker cool tones with a pop of brightness. Continue reading
Though the calendar says it’s spring, we still have quite a bit of snow in Thunder Bay as well as some chilly mornings. Nonetheless, since it is technically spring, I thought I’d share 5 items that are bring me more into a ‘spring’ state of mind! They are all bright and cheery which is exactly what I reach for to get me out of the darkness that I associate with winter. Don’t get me wrong, I love all of the vampy makeup that I reach for more during the winter, but I am ready for some change! Continue reading
Spring still feels pretty far away in Thunder Bay since we got a huge dumping of snow a couple of weeks ago. But, Easter is later on this month so I want to get lots of colourful, spring makeup looks up before that! I have an Easter event later on this month so in creating these looks I’m also testing out what I want to do for that night. My first look is very pink and uses the Colourpop x KathleenLights Dream St Palette. It’s actually a pretty simple look that only uses TWO different eye shadows from the palette. I’ve used a few different brushes though to give off different levels of pigmentation for the matte shade.
Hi guys! It’s been awhile since I’ve done a MOTD post and I thought it would be fun to showcase some of my picks from last week’s Top 5: Spring & Summer Picks post! I had meant to do this look over the weekend, however, I had one of those barely leave the house/minimal makeup weekends. I think we all need a few of those! It was very relaxing! Anyways, I was able to make time for a mini photoshoot before work so here we go!
Hi guys! With spring making it’s way into Thunder Bay, I’ve been really inspired to start blogging about my favourite products for the season. Since spring is pretty much a gateway to summer, I start busting out the bright colours on a regular basis. I don’t really believe in seasonal colours, but I think the nicer weather makes me feel more bright and cheery and then this in turn is reflected in my overall style.
Nars | Audacious Lipstick in Angela
I’ve had Angela for a couple of years now and I always seem to bust her out when spring starts up. The pink orchid shade really reminds me of fresh flowers starting to bloom! Though we don’t have a lot of that going on right now in Thunder Bay (thank you epic April ice storm), I’m hopeful we will start seeing some blossoms soon! The Audacious Lipstick formula pigmented demi-matte formula that I find wears really well on the lips. Continue reading
