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

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!

*Update* – sadly this palette has recently been discontinued. You can create similar looks with the Naked 2 palette or the Jaclyn Hill x Morphe Palette! 

Today’s tutorial is a bronze, smoky eye using the Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette! It’s a super easy look, and although it is a smoky eye, it’s a very wearable one that won’t leave you feeling like a racoon. It’s definitely on the softer side of the smokey spectrum! You can customize this look in many different ways to suit your preference. You can make the shadow darker, pair it with a red lip, or add some glitter for extra drama! I hope you enjoy!

For part 2 of my Holiday Lip Series (you can read part 1 about the best lip balms and treatments here) is all about my current favourite shades and formulas for holiday lipsticks!

When I think of holiday lips, bold reds, berries, and burgundies come to mind. This year, I’m also definitely noticing a lot of purple making its way onto the scene.

Here are my favourite lipsticks for the holiday season this year:

I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase “fall is my favourite time of year!!” at least a few times before. And perhaps it is cliche to say, but fall really is my favourite season of the year. Everything from the weather, the colours, and fashion to (of course) the beauty trends!

What would Fall beauty be without mauves, berries, reds, and plums? Here are some of my favourite lipstick shades for the season!
