My Everyday Makeup Look

Happy Makeup Monday!

We had an extra lazy weekend this past weekend as we are gearing up for Thanksgiving and doing our fence next weekend (finally!! Im not sure who is more excited, Cali or me;)) We also celebrated 28 weeks of pregnancy this last weekend and the start of the third trimester!! It is so crazy how fast this pregnancy is gone and that there is just over 80 days until Christmas (his due date)!!! Part of me wishes it would go faster and then when I feel him move, I wish I could feel that forever!

I wanted to share my everyday makeup look with you all. This look is my absolute go to, feminine but not too overdone and using one of my favourite lip colours, the Stila Liquid Lipstick in the shade Patina. I have linked all the products I used for this look as well as organized them in the order I use them down below!

Hope you guys have a great week!

Sephora Haul + Holiday First Access

My mom and I visited the Sephora at Kingsway this past weekend to attend their VIB Holiday First Access event! It was a great event with coffee, snacks and tons of new goodies to explore!

Lets see what I walked away with!!

Tarte Pretty Paintbox Collectors Makeup Case $77 (Value $543.00)

This gorgeous kit has you covered on all fronts, 24 stunning limited edition eyeshadows, a waterproof micro liner, Tarteist lash paint mascara, goosy lip paint ANDDD a four piece cheek kit to, accentuate contour and highlight!

Pro’s

This palette literally has everything you need, a one stop shop with beautiful, quality made products. Tarte is one of my favourite brands and with a variety of colours and shades, it offers every skin tone an option for a minimal or full face makeup application!

Con’s

The package is beautiful but not fully travel or wear proof. With the fabric front cover my fear would be it getting dirty very quickly, also with the magnetized closure, there is no way to secure the kit shut so I would definitely not be bringing this with me on any trips.

Verdict

If you are looking for a great kit for the makeup lover, a palette that can be used relentlessly everyday, I would definitely recommend it. When you also consider the value of this palette at $543, for only $77 it is a deal hard to walk away from!

 

Bite Beauty Set $29 ($64 Value)

This was the first kit I instantly gravitated towards. I have heard great things about the quality and consistency of their Bite products so it was a no brainer and also a great price and kit to try out their products! This kit comes with four shades, varying from nude to plum as seen below and i already love the pigment and feel of these lipsticks.

Pro’s

Great starter kit to try out the products (their lipsticks start at $30 each) so to be able to try four shades for $29 its a great deal!

Con’s

The only negative I would mention is that they are quite small, great for travel but if you fall in love with a shade you’ll definitely need to go ahead and buy the larger size as it won’t last you long!

Verdict

Great product, very reasonable price, a win win!

 

Last up is the Kat Von D Liquid Lipsticks! These were not included in the holiday access however Ive been eyeing these for a while and wanted to take advantage of the 4X the points until September 19th!

The first one i opted for was the Project Chimps Everlasting Liquid Lipstick. I researched this shade online and it has unbelievably good ratings and now I know why! The colour is absolutely stunning and perfect for fall. I also am so in love with the fact that 20% of the price of every lipstick is donated to Project Chimps, an organization that helps retire biomedical research chimps to a life of freedom. Win, Win, Win!

The second shade is Bow N Arrow, another liquid lipstick that has a great reputation. I am really loving browns this fall and this is the perfectly nude/warm shade!

Verdict

Both are worth the investment as the quality, pigment and longevity of these shades is fantastic!

 

I hope you guys have enjoyed this Sephora haul and you all have a great week!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette

I had debated ordering this palette since its debut earlier this summer, so when it came back in stock recently I pulled the trigger. I had heard great things about the palette and hoped it would live up to all the hype! What really appealed to me with this pallet was the combination of neutral, cranberry hues, unlike any other palette I’ve seen and a perfect representation of the upcoming fall season.

The Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette features 14 beautiful earthy shades including a combination of ultra matte as well as shimmery shades. This palette represents so many possibilities, day to night transitions, basic to smokey eye looks and the pigment of these shadows is fantastic!

Overall this will be my go to eyeshadow palette this fall! The combination of ultra matte and shimmery shades as well as the earthy, yellow and cranberry tones make this the idea palette to represent fall and also a variety of shadow options depending on your style and makeup tastes!

I have swatched a couple of my favourite shadows below!

Hope you enjoyed!

My favourite matte shades: (L to R) Raw Sienna, Burnt Orange, Red Ochre (my absolute favourite), Love Letter and Buon Fresco.

My 5 Minute Makeup Routine

Life has been so hectic lately that it only made sense to share my quick and easy 5 minute makeup routine for the days when getting ready seems like another task on your long list of things to do!

This look is perfect for those mornings when you want to feel put together but don’t want to put in a lot of effort! I literally timed myself and was off to the grocery store minutes later(note the sports bra and tank!!)  Also you’ll notice no defined eyebrows ahhh!!!! hahaha! In 5 minutes I could not do them justice so they gone! (I just added a bit of tinted brow gel to fill them in a bit!)

Ok here we go!

Foundation

Depending on the amount of coverage you want a tinted primer may be enough however I have acne spots and redness I wanted covered up so I just went over my face lightly with the Loreal Lumi Cusion Foundation (my full review here), applied with a beauty blender for a bit more coverage. This foundation is buildable depending on the extent of coverage you would like and gives a beautiful glow perfect for the spring and summer months!

Concealer

Use the concealer under your eyes to brighten and over any problem areas (redness/acne etc). I used one of my favourite concealers to ever grace the planet, the Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Concealer  (my full review here) for this quick makeup look! Once you have finished blending you concealer, set face with any setting powder. I am currently trying the Ben Nye Luxury Powder in Cameo.

Bronzer

I have been obsessing over Matte Bronzers lately especially after coming into the world of highlighters and I couldn’t resist the Too Faced Soleil Matte Bronzer in the shade Milkshake. It is the perfect shade for light skin tones and did i mention it smells like chocolate!! Scrumptious!! Adding a matte bronzer will give your face some dimension without looking done up or contoured!

Highlighter

You all know I am now on the highlighter band wagon so for this look I wanted to add a bit of glow with Becca Cosmetics Champagne Pop. This highlighter is perfection and I love the combination with this bronzer, enough of a subtle glow to look healthy and put together!

Mascara

I love me some mascara and don’t leave home without it. For this look I once again used another one of my go tos, the Tarte’s Lights Camera Lashes mascara and primer in one (full review here)! You go with what you know right!

Lipgloss

If I am running some errands or going to the grocery store I prefer to have a very light glossy lip. That way it is super quick and easy and still looks like you put some effort in lol! For this look I used the Buxom Full On Lip Cream in the shade White Russian, literally the perfect nudey pink!

I hope you guys enjoyed this look and have an awesome week!
