My Must Have Product to Transition from Fall to Winter

I hate even thinking about winter already, but today the Makeup Wars team is sharing our must have products to transition from Fall to Winter. The product that becomes an absolute must have for me transitioning from fall into winter is hand cream. In the summer I rarely apply hand cream. Maybe a few times a week - 1 time a day max when I happen to think about it. When the air starts getting colder and harsher, and the wind turns into a skin ravaging force, hand cream becomes a must have several times a day. I never start wearing

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

Elizabeth Arden Untold Absolu Review

Elizabeth Arden Untold Absolu ($85/50ml) is a warmer, sweeter version of the original Absolu. I get a very sweet plum scent with a comfy dose of amber and vanilla. It has quite heavy sillage and I find one or two spritzes is all I need to keep it from being too overbearingly sweet. If you love intoxicatingly sweet and warm sensual scents you should definitely check it out. I am not a fan of overly sweet fragrances so I find this a little tough to wear for the first hour or so but then once it has settled into my skin it smells

A Glam Look From Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Collection

I wanted to share with you a glam look inspired by this Holiday Glam Look created by Elizabeth Arden Global Makeup Artist Rebecca Restrepo. It is such an easy look to create and offers a big impact thanks to a statement red lip. Here is Rebecca's look. The eyes were enhanced using Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Eye Shadow Singles ($18.50 US/$24 CAD.) I didn't have the Irridescent Pink eyeshadow to incorporate the modern touch of lilac into my look. I was also missing Golden Ivy. Instead my look took on a simpler take on the

Makeup Wars Holiday Eye Look – My New Years Eve Party Look

I know when most people think holiday looks they think golds and reds. While I love what golds do for my blue eyes I prefer cooler tones with my skin tone and I don't often have the nerve to wear a bold red lip out of the house. I thought it would be fun to do a pink and grey toned holiday look and turn to glitter for a festive, party worthy, touch. Eyes Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream 16 on the lid Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette - Strange from crease to brow bone, Buzz on the lid Nooner in the crease, Limit to blend out crease, YSL

An Elizabeth Arden Staple – Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum Review

I think one of the things the Elizabeth Arden brand is most known for, and recognized by, is their single dose Ceramide Capsules. The revolutionary introduction of these skin-identical ceramides (essential lipids found in the surface layer of skin that maintain the integrity of the skin's barrier layer) began with the original Time Complex Capsules release in 1991.  Further research resulted in the CLX Complex taking ceramides to the next level with the 2007 release of the Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum. This

MAC? MAC Who? Face of the Day

My MAC collection has been severely neglected lately. I thought it was time to dig out some of my favourites. I only kept one 15 pan palette and a quad of all my MAC shadows and only a couple blushes. I do use the new Beauty Powders from the recent MAC Stylishly Yours collection almost daily. I really love them for a subtle highlight. I really don't pay any attention to the new MAC releases any more because I got fed up with new collections coming out almost every week and trying to keep on top of it. There were too many
