Because, Sleeves.

i What good is a top without sleeves? Really good actually because it mean’s the weather is gorgeous and it’s summer time. However while Winter decides to overstay its welcome – sleeves will have to do. And if we HAVE to do sleeves, lets do it right. (Take a shot every time I say “sleeves”-I…

Good luck, black lip

  If a girl in a black lip crosses the street, is it good luck? I’d like to think so. 3 articles of clothing 9 pieces of jewellery 1 pair of killer shoes But nothing puts this look together the way the lip does. Agreed? I hope so or else this post is quite meaningless….

Best in: Wet n Wild Cosmetics

Feeling nostalgia of your pre-teen makeup days with every flavour of Lip Smackers and Wet n Wild shadow. Somewhere along the way Wet n Wild Cosmetics took a plunge but has now resurrected bigger, better and Vegan (almost) just like everyone else in 2017. If you’re Canadian (like me) you have had to rely on […]

A few weeks ago I was invited to a L’Oréal event with Sir John (celebrity makeup artist-currently doing the glam for Beyoncé) who is a L’Oréal Paris ambassador and gave us a mini master class using some of the new L’Oréal Infallible products.

Living in the Past

Bronze Neutrals – Affordable Products

Simple. Natural. Minimal. Three words to describe this makeup look (in my eyes). Sometimes, more often then not I go for a super bold, bright eye with glitter or a crazy bold lip or a mix of both. This look was a rare occasion for me when I wanted a subtle neutral eye with a…

6 Feet Tall

  “Make me look skinny with long legs”.  The two reasonable expectations I have from my clothing and photographer. (if you have ever been cursed to photograph me you know the drill and my angles) So here are some of my secrets to help me believe I have 6 feet long legs and a model…

I’m Blue

It’s about time eye makeup gets their 15 minutes of fame with me. I have been a nude lip/gloss type girl my whole life and when the Kylie Jenner lip era began I was in a committed relationship with my mauvey nude matte lipsticks. Last year shifted to the year of the lips for me…

Winter Skincare: Night Routine & Masks

Makeup Removal: One saving grace I learned last year was to be rid of makeup wipes and swap them for micellar water. I felt makeup wipe dried out my skin, the wipes were rough on my skin and overall did more damage then good. The L’Oreal Micellar water is my holy grail. It is incredibly…
