{Rouge Unlimited Lipsticks – Brave Beauty}

This Fall 2014 Shu Uemura welcomes a generous collection of lipsticks, highlighting sticks, eye shadows, lashes and more in the most beautiful of packages. Though the Brave Beauty collection screams summer, it’s refreshing to see a range of hues that offer more than the anniversary shades of mulled wine. View Post

If you’re a beauty-loving girl you’ve probably, at one point in your teen-hood, desired to open your own beauty boutique. How would it look? Draped in pink of course! View Post

{June favourites: Luxury look of the week}

This week has been nothing short of exhausting and having to show a LOT of face for work. Amidst such busy times I needed a beauty-set up that would hod up it’s end of the bargain. Helping me put my best face forward were pieces from the likes of Yves Saint LaurentGivenchyGuerlainMaybellineDior and Benefit.

{Yves Saint Laurent – Youth Liberator Serum Foundation}

This little number is magic in a bottle for your skin. Combining YSL’s award-winning serum with a luminous, medium-to-full coverage foundation. Topping it all off with a modest SPF 20, I love everything about what this does for my skin short term and long term and I get sooooo many compliments when I wear it!

{Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat No. 2}

Touche Eclat has for years been my favourite product for masking dark discolouration on areas of my face that need illuminating. I recently ran out of this beauty staple but my girl @Beautezine gifted me with my very own engraved version at her BeautezinexYSL event. Woohoo!

{Givenchy Prisme Libre – Loose Powder – in Delicate Beige}

I have been obsessed with this powder. I hate to say it but Givenchy’s Prisme Libre isn’t out in Canada until 2015 BUT you can purchase it online here. I usually hate loose powders but this one reduces shine with the perfect luminous finish. The quad contains 4 shades that work to adjust redness and illuminate your skin tone. No more chalky cheeks!

benefit theyre real push up liner dior it lash maybelline brow drama

{The eyes}

This trio has been my eye opening go-to for the week. Maybelline’s new Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara is pretty awesome in adding depth and setting my brows. The only downfall to the product is that you still need to fill your brows in to add a sense of volume — for Gimme Brow I am forever grateful.

Dior’s It Lash Mascara is serious false-lash effect business. Man does it give volume and separate my lashes without my having to work too hard at it. It’s taken first place in a close competition of mascaras for the time being.

Benefit’s they’re Real! Push Up Liner feels like it’s been my first born child. You all know I work for the brand but let me be real (no pun intended) with you for a second. Before this I would avoid liner like the plague simply because It was  too much work and I always messed up. With this liner I get it it right every time and it stays on all day. No really, literally, all day.

My only downfall with this God-send is the fact that after using it once, the outer layer of each use after that can be a bit dry. Bound to happen when you’re storing a wet product in a chamber. My solution was just to wipe the top layer sideways on the back of my hand to warm it up. BOOM wet liner ready to go again.

guerlain terracotta 30 ans limited edition

{Cheek popper}

This Limited Edition Terracotta Sun Celebration Palette by Guerlain is such a special item to the geekiest of make up buffs. Featuring two bronzers, a peach blush and a pink blush, the gold middle is a fancy addition. The huge magnetic mirror is a bonus and the main reason I’ve carried it in my purse all week.

Today I’m wearing it with Julianne’s Nude by L’Oreal Paris for The Exclusives collection but during the week I was wearing a red lip for more drama.

{Rocker}

During high school (and my friends would attest to this) I could’t quite decide on who I wanted to be so I played around with a lot of personas and looks. One of them being the rocker chick. I have to admit my make up was no where near as neat as this but I did my best with the one kohl liner I owned…

80s prom queen

{Prom Queen}

I most definitely was not prom queen (pretty sure my best friend at the time was if I think back, she is a totally hottie!) but I felt I couldn’t not do a ’80s make up look if I was playing with flashback beauty looks. It’s all about blue shadow, red lips and pink cheeks.

{Geek chic}

This is probably the make up look that I could closest relate to when it comes to my ol’ school days. You would have found me in the library most of the time. I was a nerd and I LOVED it. It wasn’t until I hit 20 odd that I found love in red lippie.

If I would have been allowed to play with make up at school I probably would have worn something closer to this pink rendition of beauty looks. But nay, I went to a school that was all about uniform and best behaviour 😉
