Pride 2018

Happy Pride month, everyone! I wanted to share the Pride makeup look that I created to celebrate this year. I had so much fun creating this, and seeing everyone else’s incredible Pride makeup looks.

June is a very important month, and a time that I truly believe represents positive change and progress for our society. Our world has a long way to go in terms of equality, acceptance, and inclusivity, but Pride is important to celebrate the progress we’ve made towards being a more peaceful and accepting society.

Sadly I wasn’t able to attend my city’s Pride Parade this year. I did, however, get to go to a special Pride Month showing of Call Me By Your Name with one of my best friends. One of my favourite parts of Pride Month is seeing people express their creativity with Pride colours. Most of this includes colourful Pride makeup (which I don’t do nearly enough of) and colourful outfits –  which I sadly don’t have much of in my wardrobe, as my style tends to consist of enough black to attend a funeral in a different outfit every day for months.

Instead, I thought I would play up my makeup to celebrate! I recently purchased the Huda Beauty Obsessions palette in “Electric” – and instantly knew I needed to use it to create a colourful Pride makeup look.

There are always so many exciting new launches at Sephora, especially during May-June. This is peak time for Summer launches, and this year definitely has no shortage of newness. I put together a list of the new & hot launches at Sephora – all of which are from cruelty-free brands!

 

Oh boy. Where does one even begin? My wallet is practically weeping – I want everything! These are all prestige brands, so they are pricey – however, these are some of my all-time favourite brands. They are high quality, high-performance brands focusing on quality ingredients – and most importantly, they are cruelty-free (because really, it’s 2018 and testing on animals is barbaric and unnecessary!)

Products On My Radar

Powders

I’m most intrigued by the Hourglass & Marc Jacobs setting powders, as they’re rumoured to be absolutely incredible. I love using loose powder to set my makeup, especially ultra finely-milled powder as it looks the most natural and undetectable on the skin!

Lip Glosses

Lip glosses are one of the most popular trends for the summer. While this may not be particularly groundbreaking, I’m a firm believer that you can never have too many lip glosses. There are so many shades and formulas, and this season sees a surge of high-shine and metallic glosses. The Becca Glow Lip Gloss looks stunning from what I’ve seen in review videos! The Marc Jacobs Enamored Hydrating Gloss Stick has definitely sparked my interest. I love the regular glosses, so to see a new formula in a stick?! I’m not sure what to expect from this, but I shall have to investigate further!

Setting Sprays

In the sun and heat, we need all the help we can get to keep our makeup looking fresh. Setting sprays are an absolute must for me. Not only are they key to absorbing any excess powder sitting on the skin and adding a healthy glow, they also help to lock your makeup in place to prolong your makeup wear!  Cover FX recently launched the High-Performance Setting spray, and I’ll definitely be trying it once I’ve used up my Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray!

Kim Kardashian Met Gala 2018 Makeup Tutorial

 

Kim Kardashian West’s makeup look for the recent 2018 Met Gala was my absolute favourite look – I know everyone has been obsessing over it and recreating it, but I simply couldn’t resist – as soon as I saw it I knew I needed to create a tutorial for a look inspired by this makeup! It’s a sexy smoked out cat eye, and I can guarantee it will instantly make you feel 10x more fierce.

I’ve been collecting some new makeup products over the last few months, and tried to hoard as much as I could so that I could do a full face of first impressions! Watch me create this spring makeup look using all these products for the first time – many of which are brand new products on the market!

Here’s a recap of my April on Instagram:

It was snowing here in Edmonton approximately 2 weeks ago, and now we seem to have bypassed Spring and jumped right into Summer.

Not that I’m complaining, as we had an unfortunately unprecedently long winter. The warm weather has me craving all things Spring – pinks, florals, fresh blooms, brightness, and pastels. My Instagram feed definitely reflects that currently.
