Happy Sunday, friends! Hope you all had a great Black Friday weekend! Today I wanted to share with you my thoughts on one of Too Faced’s most popular products.
The Chocolate Soleil Bronzer is a medium/deep toned matte bronzer with their famous sweet chocolate scent. I got a deluxe size of this when I bought a little trial set with 5 of their best selling products. You all know that Benefit’s Hoola bronzer is my all time favourite so this one had a lot to compete with. I think the overall tone is nice but for my skin tone it borders on being too warm so you have to be careful when applying it.
I find that it looks really nice blended around the temples, cheeks and jawline to wake up your complexion and you can get get away with a really soft and subtle contour if you’re careful to not apply too much. My one complaint is that I find it tough to blend and since it’s such a deep tone that can be a serious issue. Building it up slowly with a fluffy powder brush seems to be the best way to deal with that.
Overall I think it’s a really nice matte bronzer with a fairly good tone. I think it works well in the summer time for those of us with fair skin and could work all year on deeper skin tones. Let me know your thoughts on the Chocolate Soleil Bronzer if you’ve tried it. Thank you so much for stopping by and have a great Sunday.
Hello friends! Happy Monday! Today I want to mention a product that I reach for whenever I’m getting ready in a hurry–which is most mornings! The L’Oreal Visible Lift Blur Blushes are a gel formula that gives your cheeks a super natural flushed look.
I have the shade Soft Berry which is bright pink when blended out, but there’s also Soft Pink which is a natural pink and Soft Peach which is the most sheer option. I like to squeeze out a small amount and pat it on with my fingers. Keep in mind that this does set pretty quickly so don’t take too long blending! This shade looks like a natural “just in from the cold” flush and lasts all day long. The only downside is that they are pricey at about $15 where I live so definitely wait for a sale.
These are not usually products that I would try but I’m so glad that I did. Let me know if you’re planning on trying them! Have a great week!
Hi everyone! It is officially time to start breaking out the sweaters and cozy scarfs since the weather is getting chilly. Today I thought I’d share with you a makeup look that I wore the other day that featured a bunch of my favourite tones for this time of year! More info on all the products is at the end!
I love the look of bronzy eyeshadows and the L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in Amber Rush is incredible. For a quick look on busy days I’ll throw a medium brown in the crease and apply this gorgeous rose gold shade on my lids. I have combination/oily skin which gets more dry around this time of year so I like to add a more glowy highlight. The illuminator in Flush from the Grand Palais palette by Too Faced gives a lovely champagne/gold glow. Most of the time I like to wear red and berry tones, but I figured I’d change it up a bit and go for a more muted deep nude. Mac’s lip pencil in Whirl is a gorgeous shade–these are super pricey though and I’m actually not a huge fan of the formula. I’d recommend the Exaggerate Lip Liners by Rimmel over these.
What kind of makeup have you been wearing lately? All the info on the products I’ve used is down below! Thank you all so much for stopping by and have a great day!
I hope you’ve all had a spooky Halloween! It’s been a crazy busy month for me but I’m finally caught up with school work so I figured I’d share with you all some of the decorations I had up for fall and Halloween. These are super easy and they work great for really small spaces!
I didn’t really like many of the fall decorations I was finding so I figured that I would just pick up some fake leaves and make my own. I got a few that had little wire stems that I twisted together to make sets of three and I also got some tiny loose leaves that I glued to some twine. I put these up all around my room and on my door and they looked super cute! I don’t really have the patience to carve pumpkins so I bought a mini one at a grocery store and took a black sharpie and drew on a jack-o-lantern face. If you want to get more crafty and creative with pumpkins, I’d recommend using fake ones so that you can re-use them. That’ll save you a ton of money and effort!
What kind of decorations did you have for the spooky season? I’m always looking for new ideas! Now on to Christmas decor! Thank you all so much for stopping by!
Happy Monday everyone! I hope you’ve all been doing well and that you had a great weekend! Since the new school year has started, many of us are on the go a lot so it’s important to make sure that you have all of the personal care items you’ll need with you.
I find it easiest to keep everything I know I’ll need in this little makeup bag from Sephora. This way, if you want to switch out your purse, all you have to do is grab this bag and you won’t have to worry about forgetting anything. I always recommend keeping bandaids and hand sanitizer with you. I get blisters all the time and have finally learned that it’s best to just always have several bandaids with you. And hand sanitizer is just a necessity for when you’re on the go–once you start carrying it you’ll be surprised at how often it comes in handy!
Since I usually end up leaving in a rush, I like to keep some products for the finishing touches of my routine. White eyeliner is my go-to for looking well rested so I always keep one with me for touch ups. I also often end up throwing whatever lipstick I’ll wear that day in here, so I keep this universal lipliner since it will keep any shade of lipstick from feathering outside the lines.
As I mentioned, I’ll change out my lip product everyday, but the only lippies that I consistently take with me are my Burts Bees lip balm and a Toyshop Sheer Lip in Applause. For more natural days, this lipstick gives a super nice pink colour that wakes up the face. Any nice tinted lip balm will do the trick! Lastly I keep some Duo Lash Glue since you never know when the inner corner of your lashes are gonna start popping off!
What do you keep in your on-the-go makeup bag? Thank you all so much for stopping by and I’ll see you soon!

Hey everyone! Though it has been a very mild Winter so far here, I have slowly been preparing for it. I thought that today would be the perfect time for me to share with you some of my favourite things to wear when it gets chilly out.
Starting out with a lighter jacket, which is what I’ve been wearing lately as it’s not too cold yet. This is from Talula and it’s a gorgeous army style jacket with pocket details and a cinched in waist. It is light and thin yet still keeps you pretty warm and I like to layer up sweaters underneath.
I’ve loved topping this off with a huge plaid scarf from Uniqlo. This scarf actually brings back really great memories because I bought it last year when I went on a trip to New York with a bunch of friends. It’s super oversized so I can really snuggle up in it which is always great when it gets cold!
My winter jacket this year is the Golden by TNA. It’s one of their warmest parkas ever with wool cuffs, fleece lined pockets and a waterproof outer shell. I absolutely love it! It feels like wearing a sleeping bag because it’s so cozy. My mittens this year are also from TNA and they’re super cozy and they go nicely with my coat.
Those are some of the ways I’ll be staying warm this winter. What about you? Thank you all so much for all of the support! Be sure to check out all of my links below to never miss anything!
