Top 10 Foundations for Fair Skin

This week the Beauty Blogger Top Ten Team is sharing our recommendations for Top 10 Foundations. Of course I had to select my favorite foundation formulas, offering a variety of coverage levels, that have options for pale skin tones in my Top 10 Foundations for Fair Skin. Marc Jacobs Re(marc)able Full Cover Foundation Concentrate in 10 Ivory Light - It is not often I come across a foundation shade that is too pale for me so if you are super pale you will love Re(marc)able in Ivory Light. This is such an incredible FULL

Complexion Perfection with the New Burberry Cashmere Foundation and Contouring & Highlighting Pens

The new Burberry Cashmere Fluid Foundation ($54 US/$60 CAD) is very aptly named. This liquid foundation offers medium to full coverage with a cashmere soft matte effect. It's a beautiful satin matte finish with a natural radiance. The formula is touted as being weather proof. Performing through, and protecting from, rain, humidity and pollution. I haven't had the opportunity to test out these claims as the humidity here I think is finally abolished for fall. I do find this foundation lasts the day for me with minimal fading.

12 New Fragrances to Explore This Summer

I am a fragrance junkie. While I don't consider myself any kind of expert in deciphering notes and breaking down a scent, I thoroughly enjoy experiencing new scents, exploring new notes, and testing my boundaries. I find the ritual of trying a new scent for the first time, and experiencing it's evolution on my skin, intoxicating. At the same time I find the sensation of knowing I detect a note that is familiar, yet not being able to pinpoint it, very frustrating. But the more years that pass in my fragrance adventure the better I

Summer Makeup Look

Summer Wedding Makeup Look

This week the Makeup Wars team is sharing our favourite Summer Wedding Makeup Look. This look will look equally beautiful on a wedding guest as it would the bride. Most of the summer weddings I attend are outdoor affairs. You want to look fresh, polished, and pretty all while surviving the heat and humidity. Plus you want to look as good on that dance floor late into the night as you do many, many hours earlier during the ceremony. My go to summer wedding look usually revolves around accentuating my blue eyes with warm browns

Top 10 Highlight and Contour Products | Beauty Blogger Top Ten Tuesday

This week the Beauty Blogger Top Ten Team is sharing our Top 10 Contour & Highlight Products. Unfortunately a lot of what I will be sharing with you as my favourites were limited edition products. Especially when it comes to highlighters, they are predominately released as limited edition products in seasonal collections. I could barely even find any highlighters in my stash that weren't LE or had been discontinued. When it comes to contour products for fair skin bronzers should be avoided. There is nothing natural about the

My all-time favourite eyeshadow for a one eyeshadow look is Burberry Midnight Brown. Using this shade I can create an incredibly sexy brown smokey eye that no one would ever guess was so effortless to create. What makes this shade so perfect for a one shadow look is how impeccably it blends and the nature of it's subtle shimmer. I start by tightlining my upper waterline with black

Burberry Lip Glow in No.25 Gold from the Winter Glow Collection | Photos, Swatches, Review

When I first shared with you details on the new Burberry Winter Glow Collection for Holiday 2014 I expressed my delight over the gold products in the collection. Golds that look neutral and wearable by someone with fair cool skin such as myself. Well I'm happy to be able to share with you my review of the Burberry Lip Glow in No.25 Gold ($32 CAD) from the collection. In person the Lip Glow in Gold is just as lovely as the promo pictures. Not overly warm and yellow but rather a gorgeous soft champagne gold. The gold glitter is

This week the Beauty Blogger Top Ten team is sharing our Top 10 Stocking Stuffer Ideas. Mine will of course be beauty related. 1) Sleek and

Burberry Nail Polish

Burberry Nail Polish in English Rose and Elderberry | Review, Photos, Swatches

I have two Burberry Nail Polishes ($25 CAD ea) to share with you today. One of which is part of the new The Bloomsbury Girls Burberry Autumn/Winter 2014 Collection. Burberry Nail Polish No.102 English Rose is a beautiful soft pink nude. It has such a lovely tone to it that makes it perfect on my fair, cool skin. It has a transparent finish allowing the whites of your nails to show through. With two coats there is a slight amount of uneveness but it isn't really noticeable from a normal viewing distance. Burberry Nail

Makeup Wars | My Favourite Highlighters and Illuminating Products

This week the Makeup Wars members are sharing our favourite illuminating products. This is probably one of my favourite cosmetics categories for two reasons. Firstly I have very dry, dull skin and I need a lot of assistance in the glow department. Secondly I am very picky when it comes to products in this category so finding the right product is always a struggle for me. I guess I kind of enjoy the challenge and the subsequent joy and satisfaction of finding a product that meets my expectations. Why am I so picky? Well when it
