My Favourite Youtubers

Hi guys! Today I’m going to share with you some of my favourite Youtubers! They give me inspiration for so many looks!

First off KathleenLights is the reason I really got into makeup. She has amazing reviews and fun looks that are easily accomplished. Lastly she didn’t get into makeup until her late teens which I can relate to. I apologize for not having pictures today, instead I’m providing links to the channels. Find her videos Here

Next off, Jaclyn Hill. I shouldn’t even need to say more. She is so spunky but seems so down to earth all at the same time. She will give you honest reviews and her time spent formerly as a makeup artist has given her great experience to share her knowledge with us! Find her videos Here

Next I love watching RachhLoves because she’s a Canadian girl just like me! I love seeing the products she gets because not everything American YouTubers get is available in Canada. RachLoves is the solution! She has a lot of budget friendly videos so you don’t feel overwhelmed by high end products. Find her videos Here

Lastly MannyMua is awesome!!!! He always gives a great eyelook and he has the greatest attitude. He uses mostly high end products but that’s okay because he still gives honest reviews. If you don’t follow him, go do it right now. He will open up your eyes that the makeup world is not only for women. Find his videos Here.

IMATs Toronto 2015 Haul

IMATs Toronto 2015 Haul

Hello everyone,

Today I have a haul to share with you of my purchases from IMATs Toronto 2015. Some of these purchases were made at the convention, but I definitely was more comfortable shopping at the Eaton Centre.

So let’s dive in!

My first booth was the Benefit booth! I purchased (from left) They’re Real Mascara, a Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow in Bikini Tini, The Porefessional and The Porefessional Agent Zero Shine.

I managed to snag a Z – palette. I’ve had this on my list of wants for some time now. You wouldn’t believe how annoying it is to get one in Canada.

Next I stopped at NYX. If you saw my last post then you would know that NYX was crazy! Anyway, I waited in the line because I needed to leave with NYX products or I knew I would kick myself later, so here you have it, the NYX Micro Brow Pencil in Ash Brown. It has already become a staple in my morning routine.

Next I grabbed the HD Concealer in CW 01 for underneath my eyes, and two Jumbo Eye Pencils in the colours 625 Sparkle Nude and 609 French Fries.

I was literally shaking when they handed me this! I was so excited and everyone around me probably thought I was crazy. I’ve been wanting this for far too long! The NYX Highlight and Contour Palette!

I went to this booth and they had TONS of falsies. I usually don’t wear falsies so I couldn’t bring myself to buy the Velour Lashes, although they were a great deal! I opted for the booth with 10 for $10.00. There is a wide assortment, unfortunately I didn’t think to get the name of the booth.

Next I stopped at Real Techniques to grab a blending sponge and this blush brush (I’ve already been loving this brush.) I also stopped by a booth selling Beauty Blenders at a great deal! You’ll have to stay tuned for my dupes blog to find out which sponge I like better.

Also at the Beauty Blender booth I grabbed a Solid Blendercleanser.

I stopped by the Makeup Eraser to grab this one. My goodness if you do not have one, go log onto your Sephora and order one right now! I know they’re a little costly but I’ve already washed mine 3 times and it works just as great every time! I absolutely LOVE this.

image

My last stop was Mac Cosmetics. My goodness they were so kind and helpful, unfortunately it was still a little busy so I only grabbed Rule while I was there. The remainder I purchases at the Mac Cosmetics in the Eaton Centre. Pictured from left are Copperring, Rule, Cranberry, and Deep Damson.

I literally could not leave Toronto without this baby. On the day we were supposed to leave, I begged to go back to the Eaton Centre so I could get this! I am so glad I did!

I picked up my NARS birthday gift from Sephora. It comes with Cruella Velvet Matte Lip Pencil and Rikugien Satin Lip Pencil. 

Have a good dupe for one of the items I’ve purchase? Let me know in the comments so I can give it a try!

The products I listed above can be purchased at Ulta, WalMart, Sephora, Mac, and NYX.

So I’m new to makeup….

Hello everyone,

Recently I have been inspired to share some knowledge I’ve gained about doing my own makeup. I really started to educate myself last year, I don’t claim to be professional but I will try my best to give you my most educated advice.

  1. The most important thing I’ve ever heard when it comes to makeup is, not to be scared of it. It seems really intimidating at first but it is just makeup and you can wash it off.
    Before
    Before

    After
    After
  2. Learn to match foundation and powders to your neck! This makes a world of a difference and you will not have the dreaded foundation line on your jaw bone.
  3. Practice makes perfect! Don’t expect to master something in one night. Every night before you wash your face try out a new eye look or lip look, keep working on the look every night until you are completely satisfied with your results.
  4. No girl should be expected to look like a Victoria’s Secret model everyday. Most days I only wear mascara and  comb my eyebrows. If I were to do my face completely made up everyday I would be breaking out all the time.

  5. Drugstore makeup can be just as good if not better! It took me a few months (and a pretty penny) to realize there are brands that make affordable makeup that is still insanely high quality. You don’t need to spend your whole paycheck on that new palette that came out at Sephora. If you go on YouTube there are endless reviews of drugstore makeup. Go take a look!

Thank you for reading my first post ever! I really appreciate you taking the time to hear my tips! I would like to hear from you, what is the most helpful thing you’ve ever been told about makeup? Leave your reply down below!
