Friday Favs + Mini Review #shapematters

So, this week’s Friday favourites is just going to be one product but I swear to god this product is so amazing it takes the place of like 5 other products you have in your makeup collection. If you don’t know, I’ve started to get more into beauty and makeup products and I want to bring that into my blog. Much like fashion and clothing, makeup is a way of having fun and trying new things. It’s not about disguising yourself or trying to be something you’re not. It’s about doing what makes you happy and feel good! Enough rambling and let’s get to the good stuff.

This week I’m talking about the new Smashbox #ShapeMatters palette. If you follow me on Instagram (which you should) then you have seen a couple posts where I rave about how amazing this product is. This product contains 2 eyebrow powders and a wax, 4 contour and highlight shades and 9 eyeshadow shades, oh and a double ended brush for the eyebrows and eyeshadows. This palette is honestly so multi-purpose, it’s amazing. Every single colour in this palette is amazing and can be used for day or night makeup looks. The colours have great pigmentation and they blend very easily. I’ve been using this palette like every single day since I’ve bought it and the colours last so long on the skin. The palette is $69.00 on Sephora.com and it is SO worth the price. I’ve been wanting to buy the contour palette and sticks from Smashbox but have held off since they are a little pricey. So as soon as I heard about this palette, it was a no brainer that I needed it.

Now we’re getting to the real good stuff; swatches and pictures.

I’ve been loving wearing ‘GLOW’ as a highlight and ‘HIGHLIGHT’ to set my under eye concealer. Oh the irony. I use ‘CONTOUR’ everyday to, you guessed it, contour. It gives a really natural looking structure to the face, unlike some other powders that look to orange or unnatural. I haven’t gotten around to using the darker eyeshadow shades but I have used almost all the lighter ones and I love them all.

If you haven’t gotten the hint already then what I’m trying to say is that you need this palette. Even if you’re a beginner to the makeup world (I still consider myself one), this is a great multi-purpose palette to get you started. If you are usually unsure about buying palettes because of the price or maybe you won’t use a couple shades, like myself, this palette will seriously amaze you and it is definitely worth the price. For me, I took into consideration that I wanted to buy the trio contour sticks from Smashbox and those alone are $52, this palette was only $17 more and I got 1 more contour shade, 9 eyeshadows, a brush and 3 eyebrow products. If that’s not a great value, I don’t know what is.

Friday Favs

Back again with another favourite of this past week. For a while now there is a huge trend on the ‘mirrored’ sunglasses and I have fallen victim to it. The brand Quay Australia is a huge name this summer and it seems that everyone (including the hottest celebs) has a pair. I don’t blame them because they are SO nice. I recently got a pair of mirrored sunglasses from Express and I have, no joke, not taken them off since I bought them. Even when I don’t actually need to wear them, I hang them on my shirt.

 I love the retro style of these sunglasses mixed with the modern trend of the super mirrored sunglasses. Funny story, I used to hate mirrored sunglasses but I have now changed and have fallen in love with them. These pics are from my Instagram so don’t forget to follow me over there, too!Screen Shot 2015-06-19 at 3.39.38 PM

Friday Favs

 I’m back with some more favs!! Once again, I’m mixing some beauty products and fashion. TGIF!
IMG_4779 As I said in my last Friday Favs, I don’t wear a lot of jewelry at once so small and dainty pieces are what I gravitate towards. These small cuffs are legit my favourite thing ever, atm. I already had the white arrow one then Express came out with the sapphire blue arrow and then the pink hexagon one. They look so cool layered together on my arm. Click on over to my Instagram to see the look.

There is nothing more I can say about this 3-in-1 cleanser then IT IS AMAZING. If you’re looking for a cleanser and makeup remover then I highly recommend this one from Philosophy. It doesn’t dry out your skin, it leaves it so clean and smooth. I use it as part of my night time skincare routine to get all the gunk off my face.

My oh my, I have been wanting to try this brush for so long and I finally got it last week. I have no clue why I waited so long because it works magic when applying foundation. It’s the buffing brush by Real Techniques.

During the past week I’ve been wanting to wear this flannel every day. When I’m getting dressed I have to remind myself that I’ve already worn it. The pattern is not too loud so it really does go with everything. This one is from Express.

Easter Dresses under $50

Happy Easter! This post is a little late but I hope it can still inspire your outfits for this Easter weekend.

Get out of your Winter Outfit Slump

It’s the dead of winter and I think that’s also a metaphor for the death of my outfit creativity. I feel like I’m wearing the same outfits over and over and I can’t seem to get out of this slump. I’ve noticed other bloggers and social media people talking about being in a slump and I couldn’t really find any articles or posts on how to get out of one. I thought I would share some tips on how to finally get out of that damn slump! These have all worked for me and I hope they work for you too. Share in the comments what you do to get out of your outfit slump.

  • paint your nails (even if your clothes are the same, your nails can change every week)
  • re-organize your closet (you may find items you forget about and fall back in love with them)
  • take the afternoon to go through your clothes and style outfits you have never worn before and try them on (you’ll find some unusual combinations that you will love)
  • search tumblr and pinterest for #street-style pics that are sure to inspire
  • go to the mall! see whats in the windows, hot new colours, patters, fabrics and choose one peice to buy that will spice of your wardrobe for the rest of winter
  • try out new beauty looks, a statement lip can change the style of your entire outfit
  • go back to basics; white tee, jeans, boots, sweater, and add your own style to them (this gives you a solid foundation where you can add whatever you want to them)

Current Obsession 3

I’m back again, with another round of current obsessions. As you know, winter can get very, very cold here in Canada; which means SWEATERS ON SWEATERS ON SWEATERS. Currently, I am obsessing over turtleneck and cowl-neck sweaters. The bigger the better; in other words, oversized. These sweaters are so versatile, you can wear them with leggings for a casual look. Or, you can add some fancy earrings and a necklace to dress it up.

The one great thing about these sweaters is that they double as a scarf, so you can keep extra warm this winter. Let me know in the comments what your favourite sweater style is for the winter!

Oh! And Happy Black Friday Shopping!!!!!! 3788c51d8dfc9826a336c63cda7c6b36
