Bronze Glow Summer Makeup Look

I thought I would share this look with you from last week that I was particularly pleased with. Even though my skin leans cool neutral I still love using warm shaded to bring out my blue eyes and I find I can pull them off quite well. Especially when summer rolls around I find myself reaching for warmer makeup more and more. I find warm bronze and peach shades combined with glowy skin to be the perfect summer makeup. Products used: Complexion Dermalogica Redness Relief Primer SPF 20 Make Up For Ever Face & Body

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

Top 10 Spring Blush

Top 10 Spring Blushes for 2015 | Beauty Blogger Top Ten Tuesday

Today the Beauty Blogger Top Ten Team is rounding up Top 10 Spring Blushes for 2015.  When the weather warms up and the birds start chirping I start pulling out peaches, corals, and brighter pinks. I don't know about you but sometimes I just feel off trying to use a coral blush in the winter. It is very much a spring/summer indulgence for me. I have selected my current "go to" favourites for this spring. Some of these are new releases for Spring 2015 and others are long time favourites. In no particular order: Guerlain

Some of my favourites are the Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream SPF 30 and Clarins BB Skin Perfecting

Makeup Wars | My 6 Favorite Nude Lipsticks and Lipglosses

This week the Makeup Wars team is sharing with you our favourite nude lip products. I rarely used to wear a "nude" lip but in the past few years I've grown increasingly fond of it. Concealer lips are a look I will never go for, nor understand. Egads! Everyone's definition of nude differs, especially depending on their skin tone, but here are some long standing favourites and newer loves that I consider nude. 1) Giorgio Armani Rouge d'Armani #102 Gloss d'Armani lipsticks are one of my favourite lipstick formulas. Hydrating and

Top 10 Nail Polishes for Spring/Summer | Beauty Blogger Top Ten Tuesday

This week's Beauty Blogger Top Ten Tuesday is focused on our top picks for Spring/Summer Nail Colours. I was surprised how tricky I found this. I wanted to only include colours that appeared to still be easily available as not to tempt you with discontinued products. With so many beautiful shades to choose from I selected the ones I reach for most often. For my pedicures this tends to be really bright, fun shades for summer. For my nails I tend to go a little more subdued. So without further ado. Here we go! For

Peach Coral Lips

Makeup Wars | Favourite Peach and Coral Lip Products

Today the Makeup Wars beauty bloggers are sharing with you some of our favourite peach and coral lip products. Breaking out these pretty shades is one of the best parts of spring! While pinks are something that you can pull off year round there is something about coral that just doesn't seem to fit with colder weather. We tend to save them (particularly the more vibrant shades) until the warmer weather hits. Many of my all time favourites were unfortunately limited edition releases, and I didn't want to tempt you with no longer

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

Makeup Wars – My Favourite Foundations

This week for Makeup Wars we are sharing some of our favourite foundations and BB creams. I have fair skin that is very dry and dehydrated. Sometimes I can have some flakiness around my nose and on my chin. What I look for in a foundation is a formula that will even out the redness in my skin while covering up some of the hyper pigmentation. I need it to have a natural or dewy finish so it doesn't cause my already dry skin to look look even more parched. It is important to me that I don't see my foundation and that it doesn't

Chanel is Now Available Online at The Bay! YES!

I am totally freaking out! I just noticed that Chanel is now available for purchase ONLINE at The Bay! For some reason it is showing the US formulation of the eyeshadow quads which I'm sure is just an error in the Chanel boutique. (Note: Thanks to the beautiful Kate (see comment below) I can tell you the Spring quad is in the US formula. Looks like they may be making the switch!) So excited to have Chanel more accessible to me again since Neiman Marcus stopped shipping it to Canada. You have to go to the Beauty section on The

How I Transition My Makeup From Summer to Fall – Fashion Magazine Beauty Panel

This week's Fashion Magazine Beauty Panel challenge was how we transition our looks from Summer to Fall. It's hard to believe that the leaves are already starting to fall and autumn is around the corner. When it comes to transitioning my look from summer to fall my favourite thing to do is to find new fall collections that will carry me right through from summer until winter. With Fall collections hitting counters as early as August it's nice to be able to put our new purchases for the next season to use right away like the

Top Ten Tuesday Gold Favorites

This week some of your favorite beauty bloggers are sharing their Top Ten Gold products. I don't have many gold products as I find yellow gold doesn't compliment my colouring very well. I absolutely adore the look of antique gold though and I'm anxious to go on a shopping spree for some antique gold shades to embrace the antique gold trend for Fall 2013. Here are some of my most used and loved gold products ranging from white gold, to yellow gold, all the way to the far green extreme of antique gold with Aztec Gold from Fyrinnae.
