Travel Makeup Bag Essentials: Business Trip to Wine Country

Travel Makeup Bag Essentials: Business Trip to Wine Country

omorrow, I am heading to our senior leadership retreat in Kelowna, the wine country of BC. It will be hot which means no business suits required! Today’s post is a roundup of the makeup I am packing for my trip. I decided to keep things fairly simple this time because I always pack too much for business trips and use only a fraction of the items I brought. Eyes: I am not taking any eyeshadow palettes this time because I…

Clionadh Cosmetics Witchcraft & Alchemy

Clionadh Cosmetics Witchcraft & Alchemy

Clionadh Cosmetics (www.clionadhcosmetics.com) is a homegrown Canadian Indie company based out in Toronto. I discovered Clionadh last year and now cannot get enough! I stalk them on Instagram and make eyes at any swatches I see. Needless to say, I love the versatility of Clionadh’s products – they are seamless from day to night and from the workplace to date night. The shadows are buildable – you can wear them for a muted, dynamic, subtly shifty contrast for work or…

My Looxi Beauty Highlighters

My Looxi Beauty Highlighters

I really enjoy Looxi Beauty as a brand (www.looxibeauty.com). Another Instagram find, I find the company’s eyeshadows and highlighters pigmented, developed in an interesting range of colors, and very reasonably priced (USD 5.00 for a 26mm eyeshadow pan and USD 7.50 for a 35mm highlighter pan). The company also has some great deals on their ‘Steals & Deals’ page where typically discontinued shades are sold at half price. I own a couple of highlighters from Looxi and I would say…

Beauty Bar Baby – Highlighters or Duochrome Eyeshadows? You Decide!

Beauty Bar Baby – Highlighters or Duochrome Eyeshadows? You Decide!

Beauty Bar Baby is another indie brand I stumbled across on Instagram (there’s tons of them now!). I ordered 5 of their highlighters – it was hard to decide which ones to pick because they have so many different colours and swirls. I love a good Indie with a diverse highlighter collection! I decided on the 5 that I thought were the most optimal combination of prettiest and most wearable. I purchased the 37mm pans only for each highlight. From…

Highlighters of the Moment

Highlighters of the Moment

A great highlight is an absolutely essential step in my makeup routine as it helps me achieve that dewy, ethereal, well-rested glow that I am after – from workplace to date night. I regularly experiment with different highlighters – both mainstream and Indie, although I find that Indie companies do a better job coming out with unique, one-of-a-kind shades and finishes. In today’s post, I will talk about some of my favourite highlighters at the moment – these are the…

Sunday Highlighter Reel: Playing with some Recent Purchases

Sunday Highlighter Reel: Playing with some Recent Purchases

Today is Sunday which means the day before another hectic week at work. I am dedicating my afternoon to playing with color, specifically trying out some new highlighter purchases. A few weeks ago, I discovered a new Indie brand through Instagram – I follow the #indiemakeup which has helped me discover many gems in the past. Beauty Bar Baby (https://beautybarbaby.com/) has a clear unicorn theme (which is not my style) but I was intrigued by the variety of hues and…
