Winter Makeup Look #1 - Dewy Skin and Red Lips

As part of my 2017 goals, I wanted to create more variety on my blog. One area I haven't really done in the past are Tutorials. I've always found that my face shape/eye shape doesn't work with tutorials I'm watching on Youtube so I never did them on my blog. But this year I hope to post some looks to inspire your makeup adventure, and first off is a fresh look for the winter time!

During the winter time, my skin gets so flaky and dry. So the #1 thing I try to do in my routine is to moisturize and to fake a glow. Dewy skin will be the focus of this look paired with a juicy red lip

Winter Style: Sweater + Chokers ft. Lisa Q of Sweden

Are you on the chokers trend yet? If not, get on it because it's everywhere! I'm excited to say that I feel like I finally got onto a trend before it's already out of style.

It's been so cold in Vancouver recently so I've been wearing my sweaters a lot. I pulled together this outfit by adding on a necklace I recently received from Lisa Q of Sweden! I find wearing a long necklace helps to break up a piece of clothing that's just one color and adds more length to the body.

Teeez Cosmetics Serial Lip Stain in Faux Pas Review & Swatches

I introduced teeez cosmetics on the blog last year, and I am always amazed by their intricate packaging! Recently they released the Fashion Vendetta collection and one of the items is a lip stain. I actually never got into lip stains as I don't love matte colors on my lips and I enjoy the process of reapplying! But I know they are all the rage, so I was excited to give this one a try! This product is available at Hudson's Bay for $28.

Charlotte Tilbury 5 Minute Makeup Revolution- Natural Glowing Makeup

Normally I save my Charlotte Tilbury makeup for special occasions, but they recently released a 5 Minute Makeup Revolution kit that is perfect for every day use! I've been trying to apply makeup on a daily basis before work this year and it usually takes me about 15 minutes. I wanted to take a 5 minute challenge to see how put together I can look using only these products!

Matrix Biolage RAW (Real Authentic Wholesome Hair Care)

Although I usually stick to basic drugstore hair care, I can't help but be curious whenever a "cool" high end bottle of hair care gets released! Matrix is a well known professional hair care brand and recently they released a collection of shampoo and conditioners under the Biolage R.A.W. line. The idea behind these products is that they are effective but using as much natural origin ingredients as possible!

So let's get the stats out of the way:
-no silicone
-no parabens
-no colorants
-99% biodegradable formulas
-$25 each with 325mL of product

Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette- Looks + Inspiration for Asian Eyes

Happy 2017!! Can you believe that it's the new year already? I'm starting off this year with a pretty highly talked about product in the market- the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette. I'm sure you've all seen swatches and reviews online, so I won't repeat all that information again! However, when I tried to look for inspirations on what looks to do, none of them flatter Asian eyes.

So I thought I'd compile 3 looks and share some ideas to fully utilize all the shades in this palette!
