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.

Top 10 Red Lipsticks | Beauty Blogger Top Ten Tuesday

This week the Beauty Blogger Top Ten Tuesday team is sharing Top 10 Reds. I opted to go for Top Ten Red Lipsticks. I love a gorgeous red. Unfortunately I lack the confidence to wear one out of the house. I just feel like I have a spotlight on my lips saying "Hey you! Look at me!". Plus I find my mouth area in general not one I want to draw attention to. I wish I had the nerve because there is just something about a stunning red against fair skin and blue eyes that looks breathtaking. Just not on me! In no particular

NARS Barents Sea with Yves Saint Laurent Nuit Blanche = Stunning Nails

I am obsessed with this nail combo. I have been in love with the Yves Saint Laurent Nuit Blanche La Laque Couture from the YSL Spring 2015 Collection. I have been having so much fun seeing the gorgeous effects this polish gives over different nail colours. Nuit Blanche is a clear base very densely packed with iridescent micro-shimmer and iridescent flake shimmers of various sizes. It is so incredibly pretty. Yesterday I painted my nails with two coats of NARS Barent Sea from the NARS Holiday 2014 Collection after applying NARS

The Top 10 Beauty Products of 2014 | Beauty Blogger Top Ten Tuesday

This week the Beauty Blogger Top Ten team is sharing our Top 10 Beauty Products of 2014.

Anita is next on my list! Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush ($35 US/$41 CAD) I was so

YSL Spring Collector Palette

Yves Saint Laurent Palette Lumiére de Jour Review, Photos, Swatches | YSL Spring 2015

The Yves Saint Laurent Couture Face Palette Lumiére de Jour ($55 CAD) for Spring 2015 is truly a collector's piece. A gorgeous pastel hued sequin effect with black logo ribbon detail adorn the palette. I think I may have to leave this on my vanity for display. It is just so pretty. Inside is a pale pink (lighter than the promo pictures indicate) shimmering powder that can be used as a highlighter or all over the face. There is a fair amount of delicate sparkle meaning I would reserve this for evening use all over the

Rose Intime

Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Shine No 28 Rose Intime Review, Photos, Swatches

I don't know about you but I happen to adore the Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Shine ($35 US/$39 CAD) formula. The absolutely stunning and luxurious packaging paired with the formula's light texture, glossy shine, and delicious scent makes these lipsticks a huge yes for me. Chock full of hyaluronic acid microspheres, anti-oxidants and emollients this lipstick feels amazing on and hydrates lips. The Yves Saint Laurent Désir de Jour Spring 2015 Collection brings us two new shades of this lipstick. I will be sharing the Yves Saint

Yves Saint Laurent Volupte Tint in Oil

Yves Saint Laurent Volupté Tint-In-Oil Review | Undress Me, Cherry My Cherie, Peach Me Love, Crush Me Orange

The new Yves Saint Laurent Volupté Tint-In-Oil ($32 US/$35 CAD) takes tinted lip treatments to the next level. These lip tints are infused with a blend of four essential oils; apricot kernel oil, coriander fruit oil, jojoba seed oil, and possiflora edulis seed oil. This gives the lips ultimate hydration and gives these lip tints a lightweight consistency that melts into the lips. The packaging is very similar to the Gloss Volupté but with solid chrome packaging. It has the same funky (funky in a cool way!) applicator that makes

Top 10 Stocking Stuffer Ideas | Beauty Blogger Top Ten Tuesday

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

Khaki Eyeshadow Collection

My Khaki Eyeshadow Collection with Swatches

Today I am excited to share with you my Khaki Eyeshadow Collection. I was tempted to do bronze, and still will at a later date, but opted instead for one of my favourite fall colours; Khaki. Khaki is described as a dull brownish-yellow but it is much more beautiful than it's description. Shades range from khaki browns, to khaki greens, and even khaki greys. I love the shades because they are a great twist on a neutral, looks great with every eye colour, and you can create such beautiful and interesting smoky eye looks with them.
