Sephora

Oh Sephora, I love and hate that I love you. We have a complicated relationship, however there is no doubt that once I leave your store (or check out online) you make me a very happy girl. I don’t have a doubt in my mind that other Sephora addicts feel the exact same way, so I compiled a collection of GIFs that describe #AllOftheFeelings throughout our magical shopping trips.

BECCA x Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette

What’s an upcoming makeup product I am SUPER looking forward to? This one! The BECCA x Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette is made up of two of my favourite things: my fave celeb mama and my fave highlighter brand. It’s no surprise that when it comes to highlight, I like to reflect a magical unicorn and I know that this palette will get me there. I also love that it includes a bronzer, which is new for Becca Cosmetics x celeb collaborations.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit

Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit

I am all about a stunning highlight. I am all abut shining bright like a diamond and feeling like a unicorn every time I leave my house. Truth be told, I wasn’t all about the ABH Glow Kits when they were originally released, however when I got the Ultimate Glow Kit i feel in love. As a result, I jumped on the chance to purchase the ABH Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit early, because I love a good highlight and Nicole Guerriero can glow!

Maybelline Super Stay Better Skin Powder

Makeup review

My daily makeup routine focuses on my skin; glowing and fresh looking skin is my goal. My goal is also to achieve this quickly and minimally. My routine usually consists of primer, cc cream, concealer, and powder to seal. I contour with a powder bronzer and then apply highlighter for that ideal glow. Of course, I finalize with a lipstick of choice. I know this sounds like a lot of steps, but since I have this routine so on point it only takes me about 5 minutes (if I’m uninterrupted by my energetic toddler). A few weeks ago, Influenster Canada sent me an email about testing out a new Maybelline product, and as I am a makeup snob who doesn’t try as many drug store beauty brands as I should, I jumped at the chance.

I'm on YouTube Now

So I’ve been MIA for a few weeks, so what have I been up to? I launched my YouTube channel! This is something I have thought about doing for years, but the perfectionist in me was holding me back. Finally, I decided to take the leap. So far, it has been a pleasure creating, editing and producing content for my channel. But it is no easy job!

The Internet In A Blog Post: July 2016 Edition

A Style SoireeI run into super fun, funny and creative things online and sometimes I don’t get around to watching a whole YouTube video, or reading a full article. As a mama on the go, sometimes I wish I had a go-to spot where I could quickly look through interesting and informational items for the week, or the month, without having to browse absolutely everything. This is how I came up with “The Internet in a Blog Post”. Maybe this can be your go-to source for a quick recap of outstanding items found on the internet that are truly worth a watch or read.

How To Fix Broken Powder Makeup

Becca x Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Champagne Pop

A terrible and awful accident happened to one of my favourite makeup babies this weekend. My everyday go-to item fell off my makeup shelf in my bathroom and crashed onto my toilet seat. Classy, I know! All because I was keeping my toddler from using the bathroom sink like it was a birth bath at Central Park. As I swung around to grab her, I bumped my holy grail of highlighter, Becca Cosmetics x Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfector in Champagne Pop, off the shelf. Watching this baby fall was one of my worst nightmares. When I opened it up I prayed to all the saints that it was all in one piece, but unfortunately it was not my lucky day. Fortunately, I was able to bring it back to life thanks to a little makeup and DIY related knowledge. Of course, I’m sharing this with you because this nightmare can happen to any of us.

Yesika Salgado

As you know. I am all about female empowerment and the uplifting of each other as women.

I love most that she writes about Latinindad and female strength. Today, I was catching up on daily updates online and a post from The Huffington Post caught my attention on Facebook. In the Huff Post blog article was Yesika’s latest poem; A Poem About Your Lipstick.
