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.

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
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
This week the Beauty Blogger Top Ten team is sharing our Top 10 Beauty Products of 2014. Rather than selecting Limited Edition favourites or new shades I am choosing to focus on completely new product launches that were added to brand's permanent product lineup. NARS Audacious Lipstick ($32 US/$37 CAD) Stunning shades and incredible pigmentation combined with a fabulous formula make this new lipstick formula from NARS a huge hit for me. Anita is next on my list! Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush ($35 US/$41 CAD) I was so
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
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
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
Holiday Stockings were never a huge source of excitement for me. Socks, underwear, with a few yummy chocolates and candy were certainly appreciated and practical, just never a source of great anticipation growing up. Well times have changed, and especially as adults, our stocking can get pretty darn exciting. Take this opportunity to wow and surprise with compact, yet impressive, gifts. 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
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.
The Yves Saint Laurent Holiday 2014 Wildly Gold Collection Palette Collector Wild Edition ($100 CAD) is one sleek, sexy palette. This slim beauty includes everything you need for a sensual and mysterious holiday look. The black leather case is embossed with a gold leopard print and adorned with the legendary "Cassandre" logo. There is an elastic tie with a black satin tassel giving this palette the look of a notebook with oriental flare. The palette includes four shimmering eyeshadows in shades of ivory, gold, brown, and black.
