Hello everyone! It’s been a while but if you’ve been following me throughout the years – you know that it’s a bit of a challenge to blog regularly during the school year. The good news is that summer is just around the corner so I’ll be able to focus on my blog more. Anyway, I figured I would share my current beauty favourites!
-Smashbox Photo Finish Radiance Foundation Primer ($50 CDN) – This primer makes my skin glow and works really well even on its own. It smooths, it brightens, and keeps my makeup on all day.
-Tarte Amazonian Clay Airbrush Foundation in Light-Medium Neutral ($47 CDN) – This was my go-to a few years ago, not surprisingly because Estee Lalonde had mentioned it several times on her channel. I love it because as the weather gets warmer, I want my skin to be as light as possible in terms of product and I just wanted to take a break from liquid foundations. This one is a loose powder which provides buildable medium coverage.
-Glossier Stretch Concealer in Medium ($22 CDN – purchased at their Toronto pop-up) – To be honest, this is just the concealer that I’m using now because it’s the right shade and I need to use it up before buying a new one. I do enjoy that it’s lightweight and helps conceal redness as well as dark circles, however I think I’d prefer a traditional wand + bottle as opposed to a little pot. It’s a fine concealer – I would possibly repurchase if they came back to Toronto, but I probably wouldn’t order it online (US $$ + shipping.)
-Anastasia Beverly Hills x Amreezy Highlighter ($36 CDN, LE) – I first wrote about this magical highlighter a couple of months back since it was an early birthday present to myself. Unfortunately it doesn’t seem to be available anymore but this highlighter is probably one of the best I’ve used in a while.
-Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Brilliant Nude ($45 CDN) – I bought this because Karen of Makeup and Beauty Blog wrote about it as an Unsung Makeup Hero. I love it because it looks super natural however gives my cheeks a healthy glow along with just a touch of warm colour. It blends beautifully and would highly recommend it!
-Maybelline Lash Sensational Curvitude Waterproof Mascara (approx. $6-$10 CDN) – I like the more slender and curved brush with this newer addition to the Lash Sensational range. The waterproof formula definitely helps keep my lashes curled; however this does not add volume. The effect is pretty and more natural this way.
All of the products mentioned are available at Sephora with the exception of Glossier (online only for Canada) and Maybelline (which can be found at your local drugstore!) Please let me know if you have any questions about anything I’ve mentioned, or if you also share any of these favourites!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
