Beauty Basics: Mascaras

Hey fishies,

Welcome to another Beauty Basics!  I want to apologize to you all because as I was scrolling through my last beauty basics (it was on concealers) I realized that it was not content I was happy with. I wanted to push some material out for you guys, and honestly that post is such a mess. It’s too crowded with product and not concise. I promise to re-do a post on concealers – possibly breaking it into high end and low end. I only want to write the best content for you.

With that being said, welcome to my rendition of mascara basics.

Foundation Friday – L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte & Pro-Glow Foundations

Hello and happy Friday!

It’s my favourite time of the week, and you all know the drill – Foundation Friday!

This week is a double-whammy for all of you, since the rest of my posts have been majorly lacking. I recently bought the L’Oreal Pro-Glow foundation to insane hype (I went to 3 drugstores to find it, and randomly saw it in a London Drugs when I went to buy some nail polish remover, lol).

Beauty Basics: Concealers, Brighteners & Colour Correctors

Hey fishies,

Welcome to another Beauty Basics! Today I thought I would go over some concealers – mainly because I didn’t realize what a collection I had amassed over the years..

There are some mainstays in my collections, a couple of re-purchases and some you might want to skip. I’ve split it up according to high-end, drugstore, illuminators, and colour correctors.

Let’s hop to it!

The Rundown: Brow Pencils

Hey fishies!

So, a couple days back I posted a Rundown on Eyebrow Gels.. I think now that we are all well versed on keeping our eyebrows in place, let’s move on to filling them in – with brow pencils.

I personally love brow pencils. They are a no-muss, no-fuss product and let you fill in your brows in a pinch. It’s what I reach for when I’m in a hurry and just don’t have the 15 minutes to dedicate to my eyebrows. As you can probably tell or have experienced yourself, powders and pomades are not always the most convenient, quick or natural option. In my quest to have the fleekiest brows,  I have tried many, many brow pencils, both drugstore and high-end.

All of the pencils I’m discussing today are a standard twist/retract packaging, with product on one end, and a spoolie on the other.

So, without further ado, here are some options when it comes to the brow pencil family:

The Rundown – Eyebrow Gels

Happy Monday fishies!

Today we are tackling brow gels. Why? Because I am obsessed with brows. I think I’ll post about my fav brow powders and pomades, but I thought we’d start simple and do a lil’ rundown of brow gels.

Now I don’t know about you guys, but I need a brow gel. Literally. I can’t have a fleeky brow day without cementing them down with a gel. My brow hairs are quite long and they like to try and run away from my face (you’re probably thinking, well duh bf, just trim them! I do. They grow back. I cry.)

So I have 6 brow gels for you guys today, some clear, some tinted so lets rock n’ roll!

My Favourite Facial Cleansing Oils

Hey Fishies!

Today we’re talking all about facial cleansing oil. If you’re new to it, facial cleansing oil goes onto your skin dry. In the process, it emulsifies any dirt, makeup and impurities on your skin and when mixed with water, turns into a milky substance taking all the dirt away with it.

It’s amazing. It is probably the only product that works at taking away my mascara and saving me from dreaded racoon eyes.

So let’s get into it! These are my favourite cleansing oils, and bonus, they’re all drugstore (save those $$$)
