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

The Best Black Eyeliners | Makeup Wars

Today on Makeup Wars we are featuring our Favourite Black Eyeliners! My favourite results are usually with a gel liner. Lately I've been a little more lazy and have been using pencils more and more. Luckily there have been some black liners come out lately that are absolutely incredible! Smooth, creamy, pigmented, and long-wearing. All must have qualities in any black liner and these liners all fit the bill and exceed expectations at a range of price points. I have not included any liquid liners because personally liquid liners

The New Essential Black Gel Liner in My Kit – Illamasqua Precision Gel Eyeliner Review

A long wearing, easy to apply black gel liner is an essential in every professional makeup kit, and as far as I'm concerned, in every personal makeup collection as well. I now have a new favourite in rotation. The Illamasqua Precision Gel Eyeliner ($27.50 CAD) meets every one of my expectations in a gel liner. The formula applies smoothly with the right level of creaminess. It's dry enough to adhere well to the lid with excellent pigmentation while not travelling all over, yet creamy enough to apply effortlessly, allow a

Illamasqua Lipstick in Eurydice is One Fierce Fuchsia – Photos, Swatches, and Review

Illamasqua Lipstick in Eurydice is a bold, bright fuchsia pink. It is a matte finish yet has an almost translucency to it that makes it seem as if this practically neon shade glows. The lipstick has a very dry feel on application and takes several swipes to reach intense colour. That can also be a good thing if you don't want to go full on fuchsia. I thought I would find Eurydice uncomfortable to wear as it felt rather dry yet waxy when I applied it but once it set  on my lips it became an even more intense shade and felt

Halloween Look Tutorial – Autumn Fairy – Fashion Magazine Beauty Panel

This week's challenge for the Fashion Magazine Beauty Panel was to come up with a Halloween look. I don't really do Halloween. I hate the idea of spending a whole bunch of money on costumes and props like wigs and contacts for one day. I decided to push myself out of my comfort zone and try something different and fun that I could do with what I already had at home. At first I was wracking my brain trying to come up with some sort of cartoon or movie character to do but then I decided that I would just wing it and create

Chanel Ombres Perlees de Chanel Gives Kaska Beige a Boost Face of the Day

I thought I'd try punching up my usual Chanel Kaska Beige look by using the Ombres Perlees de Chanel Quint to add some finishing touches. I liked the subtle glow it gave to the look. Apologies for the lackluster hair and somewhat unsuccessful attempt at getting decent pics. I was just going heading to the cottage. ;-)Products Used:Face:Le Metier de Beaute Peau Vierge Shade 1Make Up For Ever HD Concealer 305 set with Laura Mercier Secret Brightening PowderMac Mineralize Skin Finish Natural LightMAC Play It Proper Beauty

Face of the Day with the Urban Decay Naked Palette

Here is a Face of the Day from the other week featuring the Urban Decay Naked palette. I ought to do a proper review on it soon, although it has been reviewed umpteen times already on other blogs. I was unsure for a long time about picking this up since I feared it would be too warm for me. It is definitely warm but happily I think it still manages to work. I really should use it more often even if it's just to use a single shade to complete a look. It is a fantastic value for such a comprehensive palette of neutrals. This is the

Illamasqua Powder Blushers in Hussy, Lover and Tremble – Swatches & Review

From Illamasqua's website:Illuminate, radiate, make your face come alive with the colour and drama of Illamasqua Powder Blusher. Colour-intense and highly pigmented, use it to shade, brighten, enhance and define the shape of your face. Be bold, be daring, be the centre of attention.I am so incredibly impressed with Illamasqua blushes and incredibly disappointed with the fact that this brand is completely unavailable in Canada. I had to get these blushes through a US CP. Illamasqua is carried at Sephora in the US but they are not
