Makeup Wars | My Favorite Color Correctors | Urban Decay Naked Skin Color Correcting Fluid

When it comes to color correctors I had no problem deciding what my favorite products were. While most color correctors come in cream form, in either a pan or a stick, the color correctors from Urban Decay are in a fluid form that make them incredibly easy to work with for pros and novices alike. I find the formula also works better with a variety of foundations compared to cream versions. The Urban Decay Naked Skin Color Correcting Fluid ($28 US/$35 CAD) comes in five perfectly done shades in an easy to blend formula that offers

My Current Skincare Routine | SkinCeuticals Advanced Brightening System Update

This week's Makeup Wars feature is all about skincare and I thought what better time than now to update you on my progress and results with the SkinCeuticals Advanced Brightening System that I introduced you to here.

My Favorite Highlighters | Makeup Wars

This week the Makeup Wars team is sharing our Favorite Highlighters! I could have made this post humungous but I opted to instead focus on the few highlighters I reach for probably 80% of the time. I certainly have more in my stash that I adore, but these are my true go to's. All of my favorite highlighters are powder formulas as these are the kinds of products I tend to prefer. I have some absolutely stunning liquid and cream highlighters in my collection, but powders are what I typically reach for as I just find them quicker and

Makeup Wars | Drugstore Lip Love | L’Oreal Paris Infallible Pro Matte Gloss

This week the Makeup Wars team is featuring our favorite drugstore lip products. I thought it would be fun to show my newest favorite, the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Pro Matte Gloss ($13.99 CAD). The Pro Matte Gloss formula is basically a liquid lipstick. They have a beautiful lightweight velvety mousse texture, yet offer full opaque coverage in a single swipe. These feel so comfortable on the lips and there is no dry sensation, or drying out of the lips over time. Now these are not like your typical matte liquid lipstick that

This week the Makeup Wars Team is sharing our favorite Beauty Tools. I can't wait to see everyone's picks!

My Recent Beauty Splurge | Huge Colourpop Haul!

Today the Makeup Wars team is sharing a recent beauty splurge. My most recent, and slightly heart stopping, splurge was on Colourpop cosmetics. I couldn't resist trying Colourpop any longer and placed two very large orders back to back. The Colourpop line is incredibly affordable but factor in the US to CAD exchange rate, shipping fee, duties and taxes, and the quantity of what I ordered and it turned out to be a very large splurge. I am not disappointed with my purchases. You really can't beat the price and the quality, shades,

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

My Favorite Alternative to Black Eyeliner | Burgundy Eyeliner – The New Neutral

Fall is all about shades of deep wine and burgundy. I already have the Rebecca Minkoff handbag in the shade Port picked out that I know is going to be my favorite fall accessory. This week the Makeup Wars team is looking at more unique eye product colours. Burgundy shades may be best suited to accentuating green eyes, but I also happen to find plum and burgundy shades incredibly flattering on blue eyes. When I want something a little different than the traditional black and brown eyeliner I love using a deep dark burgundy. It is

KEUNE Design Repair Hair Products | Makeup Wars

Until I recently tested the KEUNE products I had never heard of the brand. Learning about the history of KEUNE I am wondering how on earth this brand could have possibly escaped my knowledge this long. KEUNE was first established back in 1922 by chemist Jan Keune becoming the first perm manufacturer in Europe. The line expanded to styling products in 1950 with the introduction of a hairspray to the line. In 1977 they were one of the first companies in the world to introduce a hair gel. Fast forward to today, over 90 years later,

Curly Hair Tips

Tips for Frizz Free Voluminous Curls | Makeup Wars

I love my curls. I truly do. While some women with curly hair wish their hair was straight I only wish that mine were more curly. Actually I bet there a lot of you out there with hair like mine that think you need to straighten your hair because it is just not curly enough to wear curly. I went through most of my life that way. My hair was fine, fuzzy, fluffy, horrible. It was too curly to be considered wavy as it was just not smooth. Yet it just wasn't curly enough to really be curly. It was a disaster. Yet I hated how my hair
