Spring Must Haves

 

hearts

Its that time of Year again, Out with the Old and in with the New AKA Almost and I say Almost time for Spring!!.  My makeup currently has alot of vampy colours from the Winter, matte liquid lipsticks and hand cream to get rid of the Winter dryness.  Spring is  my favourite time of year flowers start to bloom, we change our wardrobe and of course we change up our makeup bags. This year my goal is to also be more compact aka having multi purpose products so my purse isn’t soo heavy.

 

Here are my Top 3 Items for Spring that I will be definitely bringing into my bag!

YSL Babydoll Kiss and Blush- This is my favourite item as its very versatile and a little bit goes along way.  YSL is known for their luxury products with amazing smells and gorgeous packaging.  Although on the pricier side, the Baby doll Kiss and Blush is a must have.   Use it on your cheeks and your lips for that airbrushed light weight feel with a pop of colour!

Charlotte Tilbury Bronze and Glow- Okay so I have actually had this for a while but I always go to it.  No matter if I need more colour to my face and a bit of bronzer in the Winter ( We have not had sun for soo long)  or if I need a more highlight, the Charlotte Tilbury Bronze and Glow is a Staple in my bag.  You can also use the bronze and the highlight colours as eye shadows as well to give you  a very natural looking eye for the Spring/Summer months.   This also comes in a deeper palette

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer- Comes in a few formulas like Oil Free, Regular with SPF20  and Illuminating.  Laura Mercier is a brand that focuses on amazing, flawless skin.  Her products are all great and delivery on their claims.  The tinted moisturizer is one of the best on the market being very light weight, having enough coverage and not clogging your pores.  I love how she has a few formulations so you have variety to choose from.  Availabe at Sephora

 

 

 

Holiday Shopping Ideas from the Beauty Aisle

Its that time of year again, Holiday Shopping for friends, family and that significant other.  As mentioned in a few posts ago we are going to be blogging about Holiday Gift Ideas for the next few weeks. Today we will focus on Gift Sets.  I am a big fan of Gift Sets as you get a bit of everything in sample sizes to see if you really like the product.  The prices are generally pretty reasonable the packaging is always so adorable.  Here are a few ideas if you are stuck at the moment.

 

1) As a makeup and lipbalm addict, my first one is a must have and a great gift option.  Nude Lip Lovers Mini Kissing Trio from Fresh.  The set contains 3 0.08G Lip tints in ( Nude, Honey and Rose). It costs $ 33 ( Valued at $40).  Great for all makeup lovers ( just starting out or the Pros 😉 ) I love these lip tints as it just gives you just enough colour on your lips.  Available at Sephora, dont forget to sign up to be a Beauty Insider for perks year round 😉

2)Give the Gift of Red Carpet Skin,  The Worlds # 1 Makeup Artist Charlotte Tilbury ( Who recently just won the Makeup Artist award).  Her products are absolutely amazing ( a bit on the pricy side but the quality is impecable). The Red Carpet Skin Travel Kit is avalible online and contains all her secrets to that glowing skin which includes her famous Magic Cream, Wonderglow, Clay Mask, Take it all Off and Supermodel Body.  This Gift is definitely for those Glowing Goddesses.  Available online
