Smashbox Bawse Deep Red: Always on Liquid Lipstick & Swatch

This statement is going to be weird to some people... but as a woman of colour I was very afraid of red lipsticks. I remember when I was experimenting and my mom used to tell me that those were not her favourite colours on me. If I listened to her I would’ve probably stopped wearing them but you know my social media family out there always told me that it looked great!
So I continued to try more colours.

Let me start off by saying liquid lipsticks over traditional lipsticks any day. This was my first time trying anything from Smashbox in a while (like 2010).

So I was excited to try out the Always on liquid lipstick in Bawse ($28.00 CAN) ** (which I received in a goodie bag from a blog event in 2017).

Top 3 Favourite Skin Primers Guest post by Alyssa

Whether you have oily, normal, dry or combination skin, a primer is a must! 
They can help even out the skin and make your foundation last all day.

Here are my 3 favourite skin primers of all time:
Annabelle Instant Perfecting Base
I was recently sent this primer from Annabelle and I’ve been loving it so far. It reduces redness and makes my skin feel so smooth! Sometimes I will wear this right over my moisturizer for the no-makeup days. It gives your skin a healthy glow and I will definitely be purchasing it in the future. Not to mention, this product has a pump which is not common in most primers, but can be very handy!

Maybelline Baby Skin
This is one of those products where you either grab it or pass on it. On my dry skin it glides on easily, gives a natural finish and doesn’t dry me out!

If you have oily skin, I recommend using a very small amount because your face can tend to get greasy throughout the day if you apply too much. You can find it for around $8 at the drugstore.

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer
This is my all-time favourite primer. If you really want to invest in a good one, go for this one. One little pea size can do your whole face! I got two sample sized ones weeks ago and I’m still on my first one.

It’s not greasy, and it smooth’s out your pores, fine lines, and blemishes. Your skin will feel as soft as butter! It feels great and it’s totally worth it.

Tell me what your favourite primers are in the comments! 
I would love to hear them!

FOTD: My new easy look

My new easy look is quite simple! I would explain it as neutral with a kick :) The kick is colored liner..

I work early like 8:00am so days when I feel like wearing makeup,I need a effortless look which requires no touch up.

I used a black eye liner to create a winged tip on my upper lid. Personally for weekdays I feel liquid liner is the best. It's quick and USUALLY can be done without mess. My favorite picks are Revlon Colorstay Liquid Eyeliner & Eve Pearl Smudgeproof eyeliner.

Then I follow up with 2-3 coats of mascara. Sometimes I mix Mascara because I like the combined look. My favorites are Cargo triple action mascara & the new Marcelle Masacara.

On my bottom lid I use MAC Rave pearlglide eyeliner in Rave. I love this purple!! The staying power is amazing. Sometimes I add white eyeliner to my waterline depending on how much time I have.

To finish it off I always highlight my inner corners using Smashbox Eyebeam double extender brightener. This is amazing.. I haven't had to buy anything else after this.

I hope this post is descriptive enough. Feel free to leave me any questions you have :)

My Valentines Day look + Reviews

 I wanted to do a super easy look that anyone can do on V-day!  I'm sooo in love with this look :)

Products used:
E.L.F brow kit in Dark
Smashbox eye brightener inner corners
L.A girl eyeliner in white
Jessie's Girl Liquid liner in Black
MAC 20 lashes (love them)
Hello Kitty lipglass in Dreamy
Make up forever HD foundation in 187
Make up forever HD powder
Make up forever Blush 

I'm going to take the opportunity to show all these cute pictures! LOL

I love the HD foundation! It makes my skin looks flawless! It's NOT heavy or cakey!

The only set back is the price..Everyone can't spend 50 with tax on foundation.

The MAC 20 lashes are my favorite because they are half lashes. If you have problems with lashes, you will love these!

Although they are long they look so natural from the side!

Girlies let me know if you would wear this look?
Also should I do more FOTD's?

P.S I tagged the pics before I got my domain name.
