• My Makeup Storage

    As someone who has a decent amount of makeup, I love my makeup storage. I don’t have a huge apartment so my makeup storage doesn’t take up much room which is perfect. It also looks really nice and tidy. Is what I have right now going to be my forever solution? Probably not. But, it works for me right now and I’m hoping it will give you some ideas.  If you want to know about my makeup storage and where I got everything, read on! My makeup lives in the corner of my bedroom. My dresser is the perfect height for me to stand at with my vanity mirror and…

  • Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer

    This concealer has been the talk of the beauty town for a while now. That is for one major reason: it is said to be a dupe for the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer. If you don’t know what that is, you have been living under a massive rock. Tarte Shape Tape is the best concealer known to mankind. If there is a concealer that is less expensive and just as good, you better believe I’m gonna pick that bad boy out and put it to the test.  This concealer is by an up and coming brand called Makeup Revolution. As far as I know, it’s only available at Ulta. Great…

  • Maybelline Lemonade Craze Eyeshadow Palette

    There are three makeup products I am always the most excited to buy and try out. My biggest is foundation. My second favourite is eyeshadow palettes and my third is concealer. I also love trying out anything drugstore. If I can find something amazing at an affordable cost, it’s like winning the lottery for me. So, when I saw the ads start to come out for the Maybelline Lemonade Craze Eyeshadow Palette, I got super excited. The colours are gorgeous and Mayeblline’s eyeshadows are usually really good! This eyeshadow palette is really interesting. It’s not your typical neutral eyeshadow palette. It does have some neutrals but also has some really…

  • Naturally Well Co | Review

    As a beauty blogger I have begun to reach out to brands to see if they would like to collaborate for a review. When it’s a local, Canadian brand it’s even better. I recently reached out to a brand called Natural Well Co (or cynthia_aesthetics on insta) because they looked like they had amazing bath and body products. This is an Etsy shop and can be found here.  The owner of the company was super sweet and we exchanged a few instagram DM’s before she sent me some products. She wanted to make sure I received exactly what I wanted in the scents I wanted. She would respond to my…

  • Brush or Sponge for Foundation?

    For as long as I have been into makeup I have gone back and forth on the best way to apply my foundation. For the first few years I only used a brush for my foundation. Then, for the last few years I have been strictly a sponge girl. I had never put them head to head before now! I decided to do half of my face with a brush and the other half with a sponge. I made sure to use a brush I know I like and a sponge I know I like.  I also decided to use a bit of an oldie but a goodie foundation. For…

  • It Cosmetics Skincare | REVIEW

    A few weeks ago I received a mysterious package, opened it up, and screamed. No, I did not scream with fear. I screamed with absolutely excitement and overwhelming joy.

  • April Beauty Favourites

    To counteract all the negativity in my last post, I thought I should do a favourites post! I love rummaging through my makeup drawers and looking at all the products I’ve used this month. All of these, actually, were no brainers. I love favourites posts so let’s get on with talking about my favourite beauty products from the month of April.  My journey to find the perfect face primer has been a tough one. I’ve tried so many that I don’t find do anything for my skin. But, the Huda Beauty Complexion Perfection Base Primer is my favourite one that I’ve tried. It makes my foundation glide on like butter and…

  • Disappointing Products

    Do I love doing these posts? Yes and no. No, I don’t love hating on products which a company has worked hard to create but at the same time, I don’t love every single product I try. I try not to talk about bad products on my blog but sometimes I need to round up the ones that really disappointed me. This can either be because of the formula, the shade, it didn’t work for my skin, or other reasons.  So, today I’ll be talking about a few products that disappointed me.  First up might be a bit of a shock. I’m like most people in the fact that I…

  • Wet N Wild Colour Eyecon Eyeshadow Quad

    If you have ever been doubtful of Wet N Wild products because the packaging isn’t that nice and they are the cheapest brand at the drugstore, you need to reevaluate your life. I have never tried a Wet N Wild product I don’t like. Even though they are a very inexpensive brand, their products are exceptional.  They recently reformulated and relaunched their Color Eyecon Eyeshadows. I have their original Comfort Zone Palette and love it. The used to only have trios and 8 pan palettes but they now only have quads and 10 pan palettes. When they came out with all of these new quads I wanted to try them…
