I’m not even a bit of makeup person but since my best friend’s wedding is coming up, it’s time I learned a little something. Granted, I do have the most basic makeup routine but I’ve never gone so far as using concealer and foundation and primer and all that jazz, which I believe is the key to the whole, lit from within beauty look. Let the learning continue!
I may not think she’s the best actress but hot damn, she’s killing it in her red carpet appearances. This makeup is gorgeous. Premiere Of Summit Entertainment’s “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2″ – Arrivals via Fashionista
A little trick for travelling or any time, really. Use a contact lens holder and fill with a bit of foundation and moisturizer for on-the-go touch up.
I can’t wait to try this and I hope it delivers long lasting colour while providing soft lips. As per her review, I want to pick up Lovesick and Romantic.
Please build me one?
Making it look so easy. Also those brows are perfected.
What the hell is a BB Cream?
I really had no idea what it was and only really found out about it through Cat Marnell, the beauty and health director for xoJane.com. She’s hilarious by the way, you should read her gold mine. Anyway, she recently wrote a drugstore edition on BB cream with a low down on what it’s about and why it’s setting the world on fiya!
I’m a sucker for something easy to add to my routine and with all the benefits mentioned, it seemed like a miracle product. So… F’yeah! The next time I was at Shopper’s Drug Mart, I dropped a pretty penny ($21.99 CDN) for Garnier’s Miracle Skin Perfector, marketed as Canada’s first BB Cream. I’ll give it a chance since I’ve always used and liked Garnier’s stuff before.
So far, my first day with it has been pretty good. It applied softly, felt light on the skin, and depending on how heavy you are with the product, provides a smooth colouring. I won’t subject you with my mug shot, but maybe I should since this is technically my review of the product. There was a second there where I was going to put a picture up but then I got all shy and shit. Maybe next time when I get some balls!
I told a friend about it at work, and I’m pretty sure I’ve convinced him to give this a try too. Yes, it was a him. Hey, sometimes a guy needs a little help getting perfect too!

What’s not to love?
Got this the other day, a total impulse shop but worth it! It's Green with Envy, 60 Seconds by Rimmel London. The brush is smooth and spreads the polish on pretty well, it's also a very fast drying so it's OK to put it on a little thickly for one layer. I love this shade of shimmery green, almost turquoise? While putting it on, the colour reminded me of the Little Mermaid, in a sexy way.
I’m not much for blue but I wanna try Too Rich For You because I’m a consumer whore. And I like that Michelle described it “a rich blue with a tiny bit of green” so it could still work on me.
I’m craving these colours. I’ve spent so long on dark reds and blacks that now I’m branching out with more colours but would changing my polish daily be an overkill? And check out those jewellery, magnificent!

The very lovely 10 Spot Nail Bar is holding a launch party for Cheeky Monkey at their Leslieville/The Beach location (1402 Queen Street East, Studio 01) this Thursday, February 11, 7 to 9pm. I'm looking forward to the party and have a look at the new polishes. You should come too, RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I like how the makeup is done. Pretty with a sharp cat’s eye. This is an easy everyday look, but I like to pull of the eyes with a little more softness.
I’m smitten with the pink, she makes it look so good. With my skintone, I wouldn’t be so sure I could pull it off. Still, it is very pretty.
