Back To School Makeup Giveaway!

I’ve accumulated a few goodies recently, and thought they would be perfect for a back to school giveaway! When I was in school, I didn’t have a lot of extra disposable income to afford much makeup. I know how stressful school can be, so I wanted to show my appreciation and hopefully help make a student’s (or anyone who doesn’t have a lot of disposable income for makeup) life just a bit easier!

My Makeup Brush Set Review – Brushes & Straightening Brush

I’ve recently been testing out this brush set from My Makeup Brush Set – it’s a 10 piece brush set featuring a bunch of different oval-shaped brushes! I also tested out the Ceramic Straightening brush, and thought I would put together a video review detailing each product, what I like to use them for, and if I’d recommend them!

On Trend: Glitter Eyes

July 2016 Favourites

On Trend: Glitter Eyes

One of the hottest trends for 2016 has been glitter. Glitter eyeshadow, glitter eyeliner, glittery “tinsel lashes” glitter brows, and even glitter hair roots – trust me, I wasn’t kidding about that last one.

While glitter has always been popular in the makeup industry, there seems to have been a surge of popularity recently. This may have to do with the reemergence of the metallic trend, as more and more metallic eyeshadows, lips, and cheek products have launched.

Whether bold or subtle, there are endless possibilities when it comes to glitter. Sparingly used, glitter on the eyes can add a pop of glam and drama to your look! There’s been a variety of glitter-related inspiration recently, especially on the Fall 2016 runway.

Glitter has always fascinated me – in fact my fascination with sparkle and gold makes me feel very much like Smaug from the Hobbit. There’s something so glamorous and luxurious about glittering gold.

The beauty of glitter is that the possibilities really are endless. From a soft, everyday glam to a bold, avante-garde editorial look, there’s no limit to creativity.

A more wearable approach, for example:

everyday glitter

  • Glitter liner – applying a thin line of glitter above (or instead of) your liquid liner is a quick way to glam-up your eyes!
  • Glitter cut crease – this is my personal favourite currently. Pairing an all-matte look with a pop of glitter liner in the crease to create a “peek-a-boo” effect! There’s something so modern, glamorous, yet vintage about this look.
  • Glitter highlight in the inner corner – this is probably the easiest/quickest way to use glitter to amp-up your look. Applying a soft or fine glitter to the inner corner in a white or pale beige shade can really brighten the eyes and add an extra pop!
  • Soft glitter on the lid – arguably the most common way to use glitter is all over the lid. While I do love a bold glittery eye, I also think using a very soft or ultra-fine glitter/sparkle is a great way to add very subtle glamour to your eyes, especially when paired with very soft shading.

Here’s a glittery smokey cut crease (tutorial coming soon!)

Whats your opinion on glitter? Do you see it as wearable on a daily basis, or just for special occasions?

Both products are absolutely gorgeous, and while part of me wanted to keep them for myself, I just don’t need them and instead wanted to give it to one of you!

The “Freshen Up” High-light powder is limited edition and was available in the 2016 Wash & Dry collection, and is no longer available at MAC. It’s being sold on eBay for up to $150! It’s a stunning highlight for any MAC or limited edition junkies out there!

Morphe Me Monthly Brush Club – July Brushes Review

I had hoped to get this video up much sooner, but the brushes didn’t arrive until a few days! I thought I’d put up a quick review of each brush, what the brushes can be used for, and whether I think the subscription is worth it!

** The 3 elite brushes are from the new Elite II collection which hasn’t launched yet. I wasn’t aware of that at first, as my brushes didn’t say “EE” they just said “E”**

July’s Package came with:
-EE48 (Listed as E48)
-EE22 (Listed as E22)
-EE18 (Listed as E18)
-M432
-M310

Once again, I think this month’s brushes were a huge hit!

GRWM – My Easy Go-To Summer Makeup Look

Today’s tutorial is a quick Get Ready With Me! This is my go-to look, especially for the summer. It’s fast, easy, and helps make you look fresh and healthy! For me, this is a look I automatically go to when I’m in a rush or don’t feel like doing anything extravagant with my makeup.

 

Here are a few options to make applying this look quicker, if you’re really on a time crunch:

  • Skip the lash primer, and just apply your favourite mascara
  • Skip the liner – while this helps add some extra dimension to the eyes, it’s not always necessary!
  • Skip the cream highlight – or, just use cream highlight and skip the powder highlight. Layering definitely isn’t necessary, but if you’re a glow-addict like me, it’s just a quick extra step that helps me feel more glamorous!
  • Skip the lip liner/liquid lipstick, and opt for a nudey-pink gloss instead – this will give you a much softer, more natural look and will be much faster to apply

 

 

Nasal Surgery Update – 1 Year Later

surgery before and after

 

I honestly cannot quite fathom that it’s been an entire year since my surgery. (You can read all about my surgery in my original post, here! What I had done, the process, healing, etc.)

Looking at the before picture, I had almost forgotten what my nose looked like prior to surgery. It’s surreal to me, I almost can’t believe how different it is.

Healing wise, my nose seemed to change a little every week. Some days it was more swollen, other days less, some days there would be a bump, and others it would disappear. This is all a normal part of the healing process, as the bone settles and the swelling goes down.

Breathing wise, I have definitely noticed a huge improvement. While my breathing still isn’t at 100%, it’s significantly better than before surgery. My sleep is greatly improved, my allergies are less severe (although still present), and I am definitely able to get much more air through my nose.

Appearance wise, I cannot describe the immense relief I feel no longer having to be self-conscious of my nose. It was something that affected me daily –  I hated it so much. Not just for it’s size, but for it’s crooked and bony appearance. Because it grew incorrectly after being broken, I never felt like it was me. Now that it has been straightened and corrected, I finally feel like it represents me. Perhaps that’s seemingly superficial, but getting this surgery truly did change my life.

If you need nasal corrective surgery, or are even contemplating a regular rhinoplasty, definitely check out my original post!  While my surgery was necessary to correct the structural damage and breathing complications, even if I hadn’t gotten it I would definitely have gotten a rhinoplasty at some point. Ultimately, it’s your body. You are free to do what makes you feel happy and confident!
