My first tag! Thanks to Mollie at Glamorcast for tagging me to do this fun little questionnaire. You can follow her here and let’s just say she knows her way around makeup. Thanks again, Mollie!
This semester I have two 8:30 AM classes so needless to say, I will be practicing and perfecting my 10-minute face. Sometimes I get a little self-confident about my “skills” and attempt more extravagant looks. But most of the time, I go with this look so that I can get to class on time!
It was a tough task to narrow down my favourite MAC Lipsticks but someone has to do it. I tried to think along a colour spectrum so all the shades would vary but I was seeing through some literal pink-coloured glasses (I do love my pinks). No doubt, these would be the 5 lipsticks I would recommend to those wanting to get into MAC Lipsticks. However, these are obviously some more colourful picks so they may not be for everyone. But I like to look at the different shade categories as guidelines for colours to pick. Of course, I am missing shades like the perfect orange or purple or coral or soft pink or red orange but I had to draw the line somewhere or else I would just be finding ways to just show my whole MAC Lipstick collection, haha. I have included arm and lip swatches as I find that both can be very useful.
Today, I have another round of drugstore favourites to share. My last drugstore favourites post was pretty much prehistoric so it seemed a good time to share a new selection of favourites. This post features a subtle but gorgeous highlighter, a pigment packed blush and a lovely, technologically advanced B.B. cream.
Dior. Spring. 2014. Trianon. Dramatic pauses for emphasis because this collection is amazing. I was able to hold my ground though and only limit myself to picking up two things. Trust me, it was hard to leave behind the other Rouge Dior and the two stunning Addict Glosses.
I missed out on a favourites post for December but I am now back full force for January! Along with some beauty favourites, I have thrown in some fashion favourites. I am still trying to incorporate some fashion into this blog but it is hard because I have yet to figure out how to take pictures while being in front of the camera. I have a tripod but no remote and no photographer. My sister refuses to help me out so maybe publicly shaming her online will work. Anyways, that is a different story for a different day so let’s continue on with my favourites of the month.
Face masks are such a treat for the skin because they do a job that not any other sort of product can do. They tighten and brighten the skin in a way that can’t quite be described and they leave the face feeling extra fresh. As someone with oily acne-prone skin, it is nice to feel that a product can help a bit with preventing breakouts. Even though face masks don’t work a miracle on my pesky skin, I do still enjoy them for their deep cleaning abilities. These are a list of my tried and true favourites.
