The air has gotten noticeably chillier so it must be time to share my favourites from the month of August! It was another hot month so my favourites are quite short and sweet as I didn’t play with much makeup. However, the upside of the chilly air is that I have been wearing more makeup lately and therefor will have more to share with you this month! Let’s dive into the products that I had on repeat during the month of August! Continue reading →
Blush is an essential step in my makeup routine that I don’t find myself talking about very much. When it comes to choosing a blush I like ones that go with any makeup look. Today I thought I’d go through my makeup collection and pull out the three that I wear the most!

While panning products isn’t something that gets me particularly excited, since Project Pan is the theme of the month for the Canadian Beauty Bloggers, I thought I’d share 4 products that I’ve hit pan on! I don’t think I’d ever do a full on project pan… but it is interesting to see the few products that I have hit pan on. I’d panned quite a few setting powders and I haven’t included those in this post because they aren’t nearly as exciting to talk about. Continue reading →
Normally if I know I have to be out somewhere in the evening on a weekend I refrain from wearing makeup during the day out of sheer laziness to avoid doing my makeup twice. However, I went out this morning so I wanted to wear a little something-something on my face. In keeping with my not wanting to do my makeup twice motive I decided it would be a great opportunity to take a daytime look and transition it into an evening look! I really didn’t do that much to transition the look but I’m quite pleased with how it turned out! Continue reading →
March is almost over and before it ends I knew I had to share a coral makeup look with you guys! Coral is not only Pantone’s Colour of the Year for 2019 but it is also the Canadian Beauty Bloggers Theme of the Month (see the linked posts at the end of this post for more coral posts!). A lot of the coral products featured in this post were mentioned in my Coral Round-Up earlier in the month. So let’s see them in action, shall we? Continue reading →
It’s March and spring, though it seems so far away if you’re buried in snow like we are in Thunder Bay, is coming! Pantone has declared Coral to be the colour of the year for 2019 so I thought it would be fun to round up some products that feature this beautiful colour that reminds me so much of spring. Coral is the March theme of the month for the Canadian Beauty Bloggers so be sure to check out the posts linked at the end of this post for more coral fun!

February just flew by! I guess it should as it is the shortest month of the year. It was a month of consistent blogging and continuing other positive routines that I’ve incorporated into my life. I feel pretty great about this past month so let’s chat about the products that I was favouring during February! Continue reading →
The Canadian Beauty Bloggers theme of the month for February is First Beauty Loves which is so fitting for such a love-focused month. This theme has encouraged me to look through my makeup collection and remember the products that truly were first loves. Products that helped develop the passion for makeup that I have today. I’ve always worn makeup but it wasn’t until about five years ago that I really got into it. What I mean by that was I started to teach myself more about the products and application techniques and started shopping beyond just picking up staples once a year from the drugstore. So let’s take a look at what products were a big part of starting this makeup journey that I am on! Continue reading →
I had a lot of fun posting about my five neglected palettes that I was going to use more during the fall. That post was inspired by Chelle of Makeup Your Mind and her YouTube Video on the subject. I ended up doing a few makeup looks for the blog using my fall selections so I thought I’d pick five new ones to focus on for winter. I by no means exclusively used these palettes during the fall but I did make a point to reach for them more often. So let’s take a look at what I’m going to make a better effort to use this winter! It’s a perfect time to revisit old favourites that have become neglected as this month’s theme for the Canadian Beauty Bloggers is Shop Your Stash! Continue reading →
After an evening of cruising YouTube, a video by fellow Canadian Beauty Blogger and superb YouTuber, Chelle of Makeup Your Mind caught my eye. These days a unique video topic on YouTube is pretty far and few between but somehow she always manages to keep it fresh! The video that caught my eye this time was her 5 Neglected Palettes I’m Using This Autumn video. If you haven’t watched it, I highly recommend it. It really got me thinking about my neglected eyeshadow palettes and which ones I am going to make an effort of using more this fall.
