Eye Brightener: bareMinerals Stroke of Light

1 Jan


Happy New Year, everyone!

I’ve been going to bed later than usual and straying from a healthy diet in a big way, so I definitely need a little makeup TLC.

I have a feeling that this bareMinerals product I picked up at the end of year will be getting a lot of use in the next few weeks.

Stroke of Light is an eye brightener that diffuses dark shadows and reduces the appearance of fine lines and dark circles over time (sounds good to me!).

What I’m Loving Lately: Fall Favorites

13 Nov

Fall Favorites

Hello beauties!

It’s the middle of November, and we’re well into the fall (and endless rain ☔️ in Vancouver).

Here are some of my favorites for this fall . . . and probably the winter ahead.

Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss

This plumping lip gloss from Dior was a splurge, but well worth it!

Besides the swish packaging, it’s a hydrating lip gloss that looks great alone or on top of your favorite lip color.

The brush applicator helps to deposit just the right dose, too. Check out more details here.

Clarins Boosters

  • Terracota Bronzing Powder
  • Eye Shadow
  • Lipstick
