Usually, a holiday makeup look features a lot of metallics, red and gold, but this year I decided to use the Quo Cosmetics Holiday All About Colour Eye Shadow Palette, which is all matte. So instead of the traditional colours, I thought of the plums and purples in the palette (and the wine on the Christmas dinner […]
There is nothing quite so exciting for me as trying out a new Canadian cosmetics brand – especially if it’s colour cosmetics. I love skincare to bits, but there is something so much more fun about playing with colour! Today’s new brand is Maison Jacynthe, a French Canadian brand by Jacynthe René, an actress and producer from Quebec. […]
Holiday releases are already flooding the beauty world, so I’m a bit late to the party with the Joe Fresh Fall 2016 Collection. But if you haven’t read anything about these gorgeous fall beauty bits, get ready to have your socks blown off because they are awesome.
Monday I had to go get my drivers license renewed. I’d been putting it off for months until it finally expired on my birthday, so it was time. Unfortunately that meant two hours total on the bus on top of a very hot day. I was pretty worried my makeup would have melted off of my […]
Job interviews are damn stressful. I had one last week and I went to do my makeup and my mind went absolutely blank. Eyeshadow? What’s eyeshadow? How do I do my brows again?

This post contains products that were sent to me for my consideration. Go here for my disclosure policy. As promised last week, I’ve put together a little makeup look using the Lise Watier Summer Collection. I tried to use as many products as I could from the collection in this look, and I had so much […]
About a month ago, Krystal and I were talking about how we don’t often push ourselves out of our comfort zones of warm toned makeup (for me) and cool toned makeup (for her). We both had an idea of doing a post about it and figured we might as well collaborate on it! Cool toned […]
This post contains products that were sent to me for my consideration. Go here for my disclosure policy. Pink isn’t really my thing. I’ve always shied away from it – first because my older sister didn’t like it, and then because it felt too girly. I don’t dislike it like I did anymore, but it’s […]
When the Too Faced Peanut Butter and Jelly palette was first announced, I think I died a little. Warm eyeshadows are my jam (no pun intended) so it’s pretty much perfection as far as I’m concerned. I never expected to get my hands on it, though as it is a US-only exclusive, so when it showed […]
