Halloween Skincare 👻🎃💀
Halloween is this weekend and it’s so important for me to prep my skin a day before I’m about to put on a bunch of heavy makeup! I am no stranger to a full face of glam but when it comes to creating a Halloween makeup look it’s so important to make sure your skin is looking at its best before even starting. I love to use products that provide me with hydration and brighten up my skin so that my makeup really sits well on my skin. The fresh - Rose Deep Hydration Oil-Infused Serum is perfect to apply before moisturizer because it leaves your skin so hydrated and leaves such an amazing dewy glow. Not to mention the scent of roses always gets me in a great mood! The FENTY SKIN - Fat Water Pore-Refining Toner Serum is great because it contains niacinamide which will help brighten the skin and since it’s a thick consistency it acts like a toner and essence in one. It’s so great for really providing a great canvas for makeup. TATCHA - Violet-C Radiance Mask I love to use this mask in the morning as a boost of vitamin c if leaves my skin so vibrant and soft HUDA BEAUTY - Honey Balm Jelly Moisturizer this moisturizer is so hydrating but light weight and it leaves the most beautiful pearlescent glow behind. You can skip the highlighter if you use this product. All these products work so beautifully together to create the most perfect base! You’ll be Halloween ready in no time!

The best drugstore cleanser???
Omg you guys! The Cerave hype is real and I can’t believe it took me this long to try out on of their products!! In Canada these products always seem to be sold out at shoppers drug mart but when I found it available on the shoppers drug mart app I knew I had to grab it! I was looking for an affordable cleanser that I could use in the shower for after my workouts or just to get any dirt or grim off my face from throughout the day! I am so happy I found the one! This product retails for 17.99 CAD for 355ml! The amount of product you get for the price is so insane! Sometimes I think I’ll never go through it all! This version of the hydrating cleanser does not lather very much but has a very fluid and soft texture to it. It’s a great second step in my double cleanse. What I love most about this cleanser? It’s fragrance free and leaves my skin so incredibly hydrated after. No tightness no dryness just silky and hydrated skin. Now I really want to try more cerave products. Their body moisturizer might be next! CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser

The best moisturizer for cooler months?
You guys!!!! I’ve been loving this boscia chia seed moisturizer! It was such a steal I found it for 35 dollars at Costco when it’s normally 50 dollars on Sephora Canada! This cream is very thick and so hydrating it leaves my skin so silky soft. It has a slight fragrance to it but it disappears right about you put it on. It’s been such a life saver as the weather has gotten cooler in Toronto! It’s been a while since I’ve tried anything from boscia but this purchase reminded me of what a great clean brand they are! boscia - Chia Seed Moisture Cream

Updated skincare shelfie
Had to refresh my skincare shelf in order to make room for all my shameless quarantine purchases! I’ve been loving the tatcha water cream and violet c radiance mask as well as some new goodies from good molecules! Having everything out on display has made me use my products more and it’s my favourite part of my morning and night routine to go through everything I have! Spot any faves? ❤️
The best hydrating mask!
My obsession with drunk elephant F-balm is real! I’ve been loving this super hydrating overnight mask so much that I’ve been using it as my moisturizer! I love that it’s not too thick, has no fragrance, and leaves my skin so super plump and hydrated! It’s been so amazing using this every night this past week since Toronto has been hit with a massive heatwave! Have you tried F-balm? If you haven’t you need to! Makes your skin so glowy and healthy! Dry patches no more!!! DRUNK ELEPHANT - F-Balm Electrolyte Waterfacial Mask

The perfect palette
I mean can we talk about the Natasha Denona bronze palette? I picked this up the day it launched on Sephora and omg I’m in love! If you know me then you know that pretty much all I wear on a day to day basis is warm bronzy tones on my eyes! It just seems like this palette was made for me! Out of all the natasha denona palettes out there this one has to be my most favourite one! As usual the quality of these shadows never disappoint! Super pigmented, blendable, and so easy to work with. The mattes are so buttery and the shimmers are blinding! Will you be getting this palette? NATASHA DENONA - Bronze Eyeshadow Palette

Charlotte Tilbury is the essence of luxury. The gold packaging and creamy formulas made me fall in love so easily! Pillow talk is a classic everyday pink, so Marilyn is a bold juicy red and Bond girl is a little something extra on the lips. I love all three of these quite a lot and wear Bond girl or pillow talk everytime I have a special or important event!

In the Nude
I really enjoy having a fragrance free body lotion for when my skin is feeling itchy or if I really want my perfume to stand out. This one is heaven. It’s incredible rich and you take your time massaging it into your skin, but it leaves you feeling nourished forever! I love that it’s in a pump and I hope the company decides to make a pump bottle for my beloved Bum Bum cream! ❤️SOL de Janeiro - Brazilian Nude Fragrance-Free Body Cream SOL de Janeiro - Biggie Biggie Bum Bum Cream

After a long day...
After a long shift at work my skin still looks fresh and dewy! I applied two pumps of the hydro grip, spot concealed with Ilia and applied a thin layer of flex foundation. To say I’m pleased with my base products would be an understatement! My holy grails for sure! I apply the primer with my fingers and then fab in the concealer and foundation with a sponge ILIA - True Skin Serum Concealer Milk MAKEUP - Hydro Grip Primer Milk MAKEUP - Flex Foundation Stick

THE SMELL. It’s like no other. I haven’t met a single person that isn’t obsessed. Even men. It’s delightfully thick but rubs in beautifully and non greasy. I love this all over the body after a shower and smell so yummy for hours afterSOL de Janeiro - Brazilian Bum Bum Cream

Nuface mini device and primer
NuFACE - Mini Mini Facial Toning Device Starting off with the Nuface Toning Device there’s this Mini size and a bigger size. The balls are the same size so I picked up the mini version, which was 200$ with the primer. I’ve only used it for about 6 weeks and I try to use it every morning, but realistically use it at least 6 times a week. It definitely gives me an instant lifted look and I love the experience of using it. It does take some more time than your usual routine though, but you can easily do it in the evening if you prefer. I looked at some older pictures and my face looks more defined, especially my jaw line and cheekbones as well as laugh lines around the mouth. I can’t wait to keep using and I’m sure I’ll see even better results over time. Also want to pick up the eye version, but these are all kind of pricey! NuFACE - Hydrating Leave-On Gel Primer Unfortunately I don’t think this works as a leave on primer. It works fine with the device, it’s clear and a thick gel and I find that you need kind of a lot of it. I don’t think the ingredients are special at all and a bottle is just not worth 50$. Plus it pills badly throughout the day, even without makeup. I guess if you use it and wash it off after it works, but what’s the point of that. I prefer to just use a hyaluronic acid or cosrx snail mucin which comes in a huge bottle and lasts forever. It works fine and you don’t feel any micro currents plus they are much more affordable!

Acne/texture friendly highlighter
Product claims: A gel-based, anti-pollution serum highlighter that can be mixed with skincare or foundation or applied directly to skin for a natural, dewy finish Highlighter ingredients: Hydrolyzed Algae helps control oil and bacteria while conditioning skin Marine Actives help to firm and protect skin against free radicals and UV light Mastic helps refine the skin’s texture to give a smooth and even appearance My experience: This is such an innovative product for those who are looking for skincare benefits with makeup. If you have pores, texture and acne like me, you know it’s a struggle to find highlighters which doesn’t emphasize the blemishes. This adds such a nice glow to my skin when I mix it in with my foundation and I think it lives up to the claim of controlling oil. The thing that I love the most about it is that it doesn’t leave a white cast and doesn’t exaggerate my pores on the high points Do I recommend this to others? Yes definitely! This highlighter also comes in 3 shades and the packaging also has a pump to keep the product bacteria free! Price: $42 for 0.5 oz
