Summer Makeup Haul

Hi lovelies!

I recently bought a bunch of things from a local Canadian store and Sephora. I was so excited when I got the packages I just had to share these beauty items with you.

From Sephora:  

stila This stila lipstick is the deluxe sample they were giving out on Canada’s Day, so to get it I bought the Urban Decay Naked Flushed.

naked final Now for the really exciting part. I found this adorable site called FTB Beauty. It sells all these amazing brands that are hard to find in Canada! They recently had a promo code for their Instagram followers, so I had to buy some things.

Summer Ombré Lip

As I enjoy the lazy summer days I thought I would try out an ombré lip for the first time. I only own a nude, and clear lip liner so I decided to use lipsticks to create the look.

NOTE: if you want to wear this lip out, or for a long period of time I recommend using lip liners instead of lipstick.

What I used:

products

Step One:

Conceal your lips

one Step Two:

Carefully outline your lips with the darker lip liner/lipstick (Quince by Bite). It’s okay to mess up a little because your can always conceal it when you’re done

two Step Three:

Okay, I know it seems like I skipped something but this look is super easy. You’re then going to take the lighter lip liner/lipstick (Elusive by Revlon) and fill in the center part of your lips. After rub your lips together for a blended look. Working with lip liners you may have to use a lip brush to blend the colours together.

And you’re all done! Super quick and super easy to achieve 😀

Mont Bleu Review

It seems like ages since the last time I did a review for you guys. I was sent a lovely package from Mont Bleu all the way from Czech Republic. It took approximately 2 weeks to arrive at my door in Canada. I didn’t pick what products I was going to receive so I’m not sure how the check out process is. I was sent 4 items: 2 nail filers, 1 tweezer, and 1 pair of earrings.

 Thoughts on the Nail Filers: 

Honestly, I think the Swarovski crystals are very cute on the filers. I keep the small one in my purse with me, and the large one with my nail painting supplies. So far the filers haven’t torn my nail, or left them with a rough feeling.

Thoughts on the eyebrow tweezer: 

I don’t know a lot about tweezers, I typically buy them at the drugstore. I used this one last night and work the exact same as the ones I buy at the store. The only issues I’m worried about is the crystals falling off because my thumbs go right where they are placed.

Thoughts on the earrings: 

There isn’t too much to say about the earrings. They are super cute and haven’t rusted, or turned my ears green or anything. And they are of course beautiful. The earrings are a rainbow colour, which you can’t really pick up in the photo.

 Overall I would recommend these products to you guys! The products are beautiful, and everyone really should invest in a glass nail filer.

Pop of Liner

Hello beautiful viewers! I am finally giving you a new makeup tutorial. I know the past few weeks have been a fashion overload (or maybe you enjoyed it?) but I am back home now and can get back to experimenting with makeup.

The Tutorial: 

eye tutorial I took a white cream eye liner and winged it out. Then I applied a bright shimmery blue over-top to cover all the white. Finally I added a black liner for more of a wearable look.

OOTD; Stained Blue

stained glass window

 

We had a day off and my friends and I decided to go shopping at Prinetemps (a huge department store) we went all the way to the top floor and worked our way down. To our surprise there was a huge stained glass window around a pretty fancy restaurant.

My outfit is insipred by this window.

 

 

edit 3 Blue was the main colour in the window, so I went with my long blue maxi dress.

 

 

edit 2I wanted more colours with my outfit, but it was cold out that day and I didn’t really have too many different coloured accessories.

OOTD; Dressing like a Local

I’m sure by the title you can probably guess that my outfit today is inspired by the fashion trends I’ve seen around town. One trend that I have really noticed is the denim on denim. I didn’t bring dark enough jeans to try this look out, so I went for more of a traditional Parisian look.

edit 4 I honestly saw this look by LOTS of ladies out walking around. Cropped jeans, converse, red lip, white tee, black blazer, and hair done however. I think this is probably my favourite outfit so far because of how simple, but yet very Parisian too.

OOTD; Monet’s Contrast

IMG_0214Today I travelled outside of Paris to see Claude Monet’s house and gardens. It’s beautiful, I especially love his Japanese inspired garden where the majority of his paintings are inspired. After the Japanese garden we went to more of a traditional garden with flowers. So many colourful flowers! It had just rained so the pedals still had the perfect picture drips on them.

 

My outfit is inspired by the colourful flowers of his traditional garden.

 

edit 3 Sorry for the terrible lighting, I wasn’t really thinking about the bright white background behind me.

edit 2 I didn’t bring a lot of colourful clothing with me, so I paried my bright pink top with light pants (to make the colours pop more) and a blue/green necklace.
