It’s fall <3

Helloooo my lovely beautiful people!!

Thank you for stopping by! It is officially fall in Vancouver and I couldn’t be happier! Growing up in LA, I never experienced seasons and only knew heat and sunshine all year round. Obviously that isn’t a bad thing…I grew up on the beach and loved every minute of it. I was a sun worshipper (PS don’t be one, I know first hand that there are consequences :() BUT The change from summer to fall still gets me every time!! It’s so strange when it gets cold and rainy all of a sudden…I’m like whatttt is going on?!?! haha 😀 It did take me about 4 years to get used to the weather and to really learn to love the rain…but I am happy to say that I am officially a Vancouverite and absolutely love the rainy, gloomy weather:D

On that note, I’ve realized that moving to a new place really does test you and it changes you as a person…getting out of your comfort zone is important…it’s how we learn more about ourselves, who we are as people and all the things we are capable of doing, and being. It could be anything, such as learning a new language, taking the bus, going back to school, or picking up a new hobby. I highly recommend you lovelies get out of your comfort zone…even for a day. You’ll be shocked at what you find out about yourself;)

ANYWAY on to the MAKEUP! Here is the final look I created yesterday

ColourPop Cosmetics Eyeshadow Review and Makeup Look!

Hello gorgeous!!

Thanks for stopping by 🙂 Hope you are having a wonderful weekend! I haven’t been posting as much since I have started my new hospital job. Being a new nurse is definitely very stressful! There is a super high learning curve and it is just tough to prioritize my time. I’m hoping it will get better soon 🙂 They do say that the first three months are the hardest!! 😦

ANYWAY on to the makeup talk! 😀 I received my ColourPop Cosmetics order a while ago and have been meaning to write a quick review on their shadows. Let me just tell you…these shadows are some of the most gorgeous colors I have ever used!! They are simply amazing and only $5 a pop! Crazy! Here are swatches for the four shadows I chose: FullSizeRender-15As you can see, they are very metallic-y shiny and glittery! Perfect for a lid colour. and AS you all know by now, I LOVE the browns and golds which are mainly the colours I chose…obviously :D.

From left to right the colours are “On the Rocks” “Amaze” “So Quiche” and “Envy” The picture absolutely does not do these shadows any justice! They are gorgeous in person.

These eyeshadows are very soft and creamy so it is best to lightly swipe using your finger when applying on the eyelids. What I absolutely LOVE about them is that there are hints of glittery beautiful shininess which adds a pop without having to use a separate loose glitter and glue.

These shadows are also vegan and cruelty free! Yay!! You can get them HERE!

Here is the final look I created using “Amaze” on the lid and matte brown and black shadows in the crease… FullSizeRender IMG_9224 Make-up Details! Face

How to cover up dark circles blog post and concealer review!

Hi loves!

This post is on one of my all time favorite concealers! The picture below is unedited and shows you just how bright the concealer makes my under eye area. FullSizeRender-14 If you go to the drugstore or any makeup store, you will see hundreds of different kinds of concealers which can be quite overwhelming. Trust me, I know this haha! BUT, the specific concealer I use is the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind concealer which targets dark circles, literally brightens the under eye area and pretty much ‘erases’ them as well as making me look like I’ve slept 12 hours! The product is also anti-aging and full of peptides and antioxidants to prevent wrinkles (who doesn’t love that added bonus?!). It has a sponge tip applicator, which makes for virtually a no brainer application. It is hands down my all time favourite concealer for every-day use and I highly recommend it, as it is only $7 at drugstores and on Amazon! How-To Details!

  1. Apply your foundation as you normally would or skip the foundation if you please.
  2. Choose the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer [$6-7] that is one to two shades lighter than your skin tone. I use the colour “Light” (If you have extreme dark circles, use the colour “Neutralizer” first then put whatever colour you are over top for added brightening and coverage)
  3. If I want a more full coverage look for evening or on certain days, I LOVE to use Maybelline’s Fit Me Concealer which is only $5 online and a hands down dupe for Nars Radiant Concealer!
  4. Place it on the under eye area in the shape of an upside-down triangle
  5. Pat the concealer in with a brush or damp beauty sponge so that it sinks into your skin…do not swipe from side to side as this will just take everything off
  6. Re-apply the concealer again the same way in the same spots and blend again until you reach desired coverage.
  7. Take a translucent setting powder and dust over the concealer with a fluffy brush and you’re done!!!

If you haven’t already checked out my quick youtube video then you can watch it here!

J-Lo Smokey-eye and nude lips!

Hi loves! What’s your favourite go-to make-up look for winter?? It has been gloomy and pouring rain for the past few days here in Vancouver so I decided to do a dark smokey-eye for last night’s dinner date with a girlfriend. This was my go-to make-up look when I was in my younger years. I rarely do the dark look anymore just because I tend to gravitate towards light and bright centres with more of a darker outer V or corner. But of course, sometimes you just gotta go with a dark smokey eye…especially in the middle of winter! I also filmed a quick tutorial on this eye shadow look which I will post up either on my Instagram or my Facebook 🙂
