Top Ten Makeup Brushes

My Top 10 Makeup Brushes | Beauty Blogger Top Ten Tuesday

I am so excited about this weeks Beauty Blogger Top Ten Tuesday topic. We are all sharing our Top 10 Makeup Brushes! I am a brushaholic. If I had the funds I would probably own 10 times as many. Brushes truly make all the difference when it comes to your makeup application. Whether it be ease of application, quality of pigment deposited, or quality of blending achieved, it is not just about the quality of the cosmetics you are using but also the brushes. I use natural hair brushes and haven't been able to find many synthetic

The playful colours and variety of textures available in the shu uemura Eye Event Summer 2014 Collection will give you options for infinite looks and has given me some of my most used and loved favourite products of the summer. The shu uemura Drawing Pencil ($28 CAD) was a pleasant surprise for me. For some reason the name Drawing Pencil had me thinking of a dry, hard formula. The Drawing Pencils happen to be some of the softest, creamiest, most pigmented, and longest wearing waterproof eye liners I have ever used. These have

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.

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

Makeup Wars | My Beauty Diary

Last Thursday night I checked the Makeup Wars team schedule to see what our upcoming topic was. We are sharing with you our Beauty Diary for a day! Since I had actually just had a day where I left my house and did something with myself I thought it would be perfect to use that day as my beauty diary. I still remembered everything I had used and it would be a totally unaltered view of what a typical beauty day would be like for me. Now you will have to forgive me for the amount of Limited Edition products I used this day but I

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 Spring Blush1

Makeup Wars | My Favourite Spring/Summer Blushes Featuring YSL Babydoll Kiss & Blush, shu uemura Tint in Gelato Reviews & More

When spring comes I tend to turn to sheerer foundations and tinted moisturizers with natural dewy finishes. This brings with it the transition to cream blushes and cheek stains. Products that look more natural in the harsh (and so desperately yearned for) rays of the sun and more resistant to hotter, more humid, weather. Bring it on! Here are some new and old favourites I will be turning to this spring and summer. The new Yves Saint Laurent Babydoll Kiss & Blush ($45 CAD/$40 US) has a light airy mousse texture that blends

The Spring 2014 Bijoux Collection for shu uemura brings us two soft and pretty pastel nail laquers with one of my favourite kinds of shimmer. Pearly hidden shimmer may be a subtle effect but it is one I love and am always attracted to. The soft shades of Green Pearl and Lavender Pearl or perfect colours for spring. There is no better way to describe these than pretty. The formula applies a little thinly so you will need at least two coats, possibly three to get a nice even coverage. The shimmer is actually more apparent on
