Spring Pastel Nails with Angela

Hi everyone! I’m Angela over at Do Want Makeup, guest posting today on Jodi’s lovely blog. April’s guest post theme is pastels, and obviously, my thoughts immediately went to nail polish! I’ve been on the lookout for some time for a pale, dusty blue polish and I’m so happy with the one I’m featuring today in some pretty, spring-appropriate nail art:

CBB Guest Post: Pastel Smokey Eye on Classy on the Run!

Hi everyone! I’m guest posting over on Alanna‘s blog today for the Canadian Beauty Blogger’s monthly post swap! The theme was pastels and while I definitely almost slapped purple all over my body and called it a day, I decided to attempt a very colourful smokey eye instead. I think you might be able to tell just how uncharacteristic it was just by looking at the eyeshadow palette I used below! (It’s Lise Watier’s Eden Tropical palette, for those of you wondering!)

REVIEW | Maybelline Rebel Bloom Color Tattoos in Black Orchid & Petunia Punk

Maybelline Color Tattoos in Black Orchid & Petunia Punk

When I first saw Maybelline’s Limited Edition Rebel Bloom Color Tattoos, I was pretty underwhelmed. Nothing in the collection really screamed buy me…though now that I’ve looked again I am wondering what exactly is wrong with me.

Namely in the way of the Black Orchid and Petunia Punk.

Tub Time feat. LUSH Bubblegrub Bubbleroon

Tub Time feat. LUSH Bubblegrub Bubbleroon

When I went into LUSH to pick up a new Honey Bee Bath Bomb I was certainly not planning on picking up any of their spring collection, but then I saw the Bubblegrub Bubbleroon and I just couldn’t help myself! Inspired by The Very Hungry Catterpillar (a childhood favourite), with chocolate eyes and a bonus of being just ADORABLE, I couldn’t resist.

The Concealer Library

The Concealer Library

For those of us with less than perfect skin, concealer is a must-have in our makeup collection. Between dark circles, acne (and the subsequent scarring), not to mention over-sized pores and fine lines that are starting to form (sigh) my skin is definitely a challenge to cover up. Over the past year I have been obsessed with finding the perfect concealer – one that will cover up all of that yuckiness without settling into any of those fine lines or pores. AKA a miracle worker that, as it turns out, doesn’t exist in one form, but in several. Continue reading
