So for Christmas this year my mum sent me a little care package when she shipped up my two Morphe Palettes. It included a Lancome Christmas set as well as an Estee Lauder Set. My mum is the reason I enjoy makeup, I use to play with hers growing up and I'm sure she had a few laughs with what I'd throw together on my face. So for Christmas she tends to pick me up Christmas collections. So this is the palette I got from Lancome Le Parisian Set pictured above.
I realize it's definitely not the holiday season anymore, but I've been behind on posting. This is the video I posted of all the fun goodies that I got at Christmas and I wanted to share some overview photos of the Morphe palettes that I had ordered over Black Friday/Cyber Monday weekend.
May the Luck 'o the Irish be with you this Friday! I wanted to do a slightly different look this year for St Paddy's so instead of the traditional green looks I opted to do a rainbow/pot of gold twist. I played around with two version of this look but this one turned out EXACTLY how I imagined it, which I'm sure you can understand NEVER happens. I knew it was a sign.
Here's an awesome look that I did for my good friend Lesley Hampton's runway debuts for Vancouver Fashion Week and Fashion Art Toronto.
So this palette isn't the latest products off the shelves and it's been in PR posts since end of 2014, but it took me about a year and a half to get it, but I love it. I wanted to treat myself to this palette when it first came out and it was still a limited edition product; well thank God they made it permanent so I could finally get my hands on it.
(Just a heads up this post was suppose to go up end of last year - I just didn't get it up!)
Here are some of the goodies that I picked up during the Black Friday deals. I also grabbed two of the Morphe palettes but they haven't come in yet. I had them sent to my mum's place in the US to save on shipping, though I'm itching to get my hands on them. They should be here by Christmas; I'm going to be sharing them in my Haulin' All the Way video!
Everyone loves a good "No makeup" makeup look, so here's my take. It ended up becoming a really nice peachy look that would be great for Spring and Summer. I find that peach/coral looks amazing with a tan or fair skin, so this look is great for a range of skin tones!
I've wanted to film this for ages, but recently I moved my collection around and tidied it up and decided it was finally time to share. I by no means have as much makeup as your average YouTube Beauty Guru or as much as other beauty bloggers but I get my use out of it.
Everyone likes to be a touch Irish for St. Patrick's Day, but not everyone is a brave soul willing to rock head-to-toe green. Here's a makeup look that gives you a festive touch of green without it being overbearing!
I really enjoy the makeup challenges that float around YouTube and want to do more of them (perhaps one with a boy in tow?) so I thought I'd finally do the 5 minute challenge! I don't usually take too long to do my makeup, unless I'm going out for an event, but 5 minutes was still a tight squeeze. I'd love to know how you fair doing this challenge!
