My Favourite Blushes

As a fair-skinned woman who looks like a ghost when I wake up after my zzz’s, blush is my best friend.

Over the years I have tried many different blushes and found ones I love for colour, texture, and wearability. It is only when I really love a blush that I buy it again. Below are the blushes that have made it into my makeup bag again and again.Read More

Spring 2017 Beauty Necessities

Spring is finally upon us if the flowers are any indication. I can’t seem to go anywhere without seeing a tulip or wildflower popping up. And I love it!

Favourites Friday #45

As the weather takes a turn and my skin starts to go, “What is this cooler weather?” I realize it’s time to update my beauty routine for breezy winds and misty nights. No longer can I live off oily/dewy skin and bronzer.

It’s time for AUTUMN.

This week I broke out my cooler weather products to keep my skin looking fresh and clean, and maintaining every bit of that summer glow before it fades back into ghostly pale. These favourites focus on keeping matte, moisturized skin and bouncy hair. Let’s go!

The 5 Best Foundations for Oily Skin (By Someone with Oily Skin and a Real Budget)

Oh the joys of having oily skin!

And by joys I mean the complete and utter pain and despair that comes with making your skin look nice. It isn’t easy. Between the enlarged pores, the gross sheen of sweat, and the impossibility of finding the perfect foundation, I believe all oily skin people should be given awards or free treatments.

I’m just saying…

However, as someone with extremely oily skin I am always on the lookout for a great foundation that does at least one (if not all) of these things:

  1. Provides coverage of all discoloured spots
  2. Fills in my pores
  3. Stays on through the oil and sweat
  4. Provides a matte coverage that only looks dewy after a long day

If I can find a foundation that hits all four target areas then I am very happy. And after a lot of trial and error I have actually found five that I think are pretty great. And they are all different price ranges, so at least something will be affordable for everyone!

So here’s my list of the foundations that I believe will be the end of all gross, slidy foundation for oily skin owners!Read More

Today I’ve compiled a list of the products that have been staples in my beauty routine for years now. Some of them are more recent than others, but every single one is something that I think is necessary for me to look (and feel) my best. These products have gotten me through the rough times (Hello, finals week with my period) and have made sure I’m primped in the good moments. Everything in this list is perfection, so why not share?

Hopefully you will try some of these and they will make it into your routine just like they did mine!Read More
