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!

What I Eat In A Day #1 – Vegan/Plant-Based/Gluten-Free Friendly

“What I Eat In A Day” videos are one of my favourite type of videos to watch – especially since I’ve recently switched to a mostly plant-based diet (currently vegetarian, easing into transitioning to vegan)

I just find them to be so inspirational and calming, they really help inspire me to cook and try different recipes! I absolutely love cooking, and do the majority of cooking for my mom and I.
I decided to start occasionally doing What I Eat In A Day videos, to hopefully help inspire others and show how versatile and delicious plant-based eating can be!

I hope you enjoy!

Anti Aging Treatments – Is Laser Skin Tightening Right For You?

Wrinkles, sagging, and a loss of density are a natural part of the aging process. A common misconception of aging is that we have to give in and accept it. Contrary to popular belief, we are not powerless in the war against aging. This topic is one of the most prevalent questions I hear from clients.While there is a certain amount of visible skin aging that is inevitable, there are also steps we can take to keep our skin looking youthful for as long as possible.

There are so many products, treatments, and technologies available today, with new advancements being released every year. With so many methods and treatments at our disposal, choosing a course of action can seem very overwhelming. I always recommend thoroughly looking into your options, and determining which treatment is best suited for you.

Surgical Options Versus Non-surgical
When considering your options, don’t make the mistake of immediately opting for surgical treatments as your first step. Explore your other options first, as surgical procedures do carry many risk factors as well as extended recovery time. Yes, the results can be far more dramatic, but at what cost? Is it worth risking your health over complications that can (and do) happen? Consult a dermatologist regarding topical skincare, such as retinol products, Vitamin A, ceramides, etc. Even if there are no other options left to you, rethink the risks before choosing surgery.

Non-surgical procedures have far fewer negative side effects and far less recovery time. Depending on the treatment, there may not be any side effects at all. Non-invasive skin tightening treatments require very little down recovery time.

Laser Light Therapy

Laser Light Therapy
One form of skin tightening is done through the use of cosmetic laser equipment that produces infrared light energy to stimulate the collagen production in the lower layer of skin. This is a non-invasive procedure that does not damage the surface layer of your skin, so both recovery time and risks are minimal. The only side effects are nominal swelling and mild redness. Both are just temporary effects caused by the cosmetic laser equipment. This method works on all most skin types and skin colors, though it is not recommended for very dark skin tones. You can return to your regular activities the same day of treatment.

Using Radio Frequency
While this method is very similar to the laser light therapy treatment, it uses radio frequencies to target cells in the lower layer of skin. Both methods stimulate collagen production in the cells to repair and tighten skin. Radio frequency treatments are good for all skin colors and types. As with laser light therapy, there are minimal side effects and recovery time. One difference between these two treatments is that the radio frequency procedure is not as consistent a treatment as the light therapy.

Other Methods of Skin Tightening
There are still many other methods to tightening your skin. The most commonly sought method is to use topical creams or lotions. Most are nothing more than moisturizers, not even containing any anti wrinkling agents. Some just contain ingredients to prevent further damage to your skin, like sunscreens, without removing the wrinkles you already have. For the most part, skin tightening creams are only mildly effective, making them a less appealing treatment for the advanced stages of aging. Serums are another topical method, and are more concentrated in treatment than moisturizers. They contain a smaller molecular structure, which allows them to absorb slightly deeper than a cream. While a good skincare routine consisting of a serum and moisturizing cream can help to reduce the signs of aging or to help reduce the further signs from accelerating, there is only so much topical products can do.

Dermal fillers

These are another way to tighten skin, and consist of injecting a substance into the skin to inflate it. This gives the skin the appearance of full, healthy cells. Of course, there is risk involved with this procedure, including migration of the injected material to other areas and lumping effects. This procedure is very popular in the media and hollywood today, with most celebrities (and even many of our beloved Instagram Beauty Guru idols) getting fillers in the cheeks, lips, and forehead areas.

Making the Decision
Before making your final decision, you should consider making an appointment with your doctor to thoroughly explore which procedure be best suited for you. Just because a certain course of action worked for someone else, doesn’t mean it will be best for you. Make an informed decision to get the right results for you!

My Makeup Brush Set Review – Brushes & Straightening Brush

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!

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?

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!
