Tarte Amazonian Clay shimmering powder in Champagne-this product was gifted to me and I honestly don’t think they make it in the shimmery quilted packaging that I have.  This is a beautifully buttery highlight with the right amount of shimmer.  It can be built up but looks beautiful wherever it’s applied.  (more…)

My face.  I always think it ‘needs work.’  Don’t get me wrong, I do indulge in Instagram filters and love the Snapchat filters, but walking around everyday? Can’t use those digital ‘enhancements.’  In addition to great skincare (which I really need to get around to posting about since SO MUCH has changed), I make use of colour correction.  These new products from Rodial have really upped my ‘flawless, filter-esque’ appearance.

I’ve talked about Caryl Baker lipsticks MANY Times in past posts/YouTube videos.  This shade is Secret potion and is absolutely stunning.

Retail: $18.00 CAD

LIMITED_EDITION__5272bdcb53d53_250x300Caryl Baker Face frosting-I can not STOP talking about this.  It is the highlight of highlights in my opinion.  The sparkle is finely milled and won’t leave you looking overdone.  It’s an absolute MUST for holiday parties or sparkle-worthy occasions-although I like to sparkle everyday 😉

Retails:  $29.50 CAD

Sculptin’ it at Blush Pretty!

Sculpting my face-more specifically, contouring and highlighting have always escaped me.  I have tried, I have Googled, I have sat and watched MUA’s work on other people and me.  It just never clicked….
