Sharing my look and products I used to create this gorgeous glam🌹 with pictures

Today I am going to share with you all the products I used to create this flawless look. Good makeup application begins with a great skincare regimen, so if you don’t already have one in place, it’s time to start. I will be doing a full article on my most beloved skincare products within the next few days, so stay tuned for that!

For this look I was going for a glam/girly appearance. Below are every product I used.

Primer: Because I absolutely adore HOURGLASS Veil Mineral Primer (see my review on this product) it was a clear choice for this look. I feel like I am always talking about this primer, but it’s just so amazing! It’s my absolute favourite primer out there right now.

Foundation: I wanted a full coverage finish so I used Tarte Shape Tape Matte Foundation. It is very full coverage and I just love the way it feels on my skin. My shade in this is honey.

Concealer: I love a full coverage concealer. With 2 busy boys I need all the coverage I can get… haha.. bring on the coverage baby!! For this look – and pretty much every look – I used Tarte shape Tape Concealer. The coverage of this product is unlike anything else I have tried! My shade is medium.

Contour: Yes, I am the contour queen! I mean, who doesn’t look a chiseled out cheekbone? Am I right? For this look, I used the Kat Von D shade and light pallet. It’s my tried, true, and trusted pallet. I have so many contour pallets but this is one of my favourites.

Brows: I am a a benefit brow girl through and through! I have yet to find a product that even compares! I am a shade 3 and for this I used precisely my brow pencil as well as ka – brow.

Eyeshadow: The eye pallet I used was the Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Pallet. I adore this pallet. The shades are so rich and pigmented.

Highlight: I have so many highlighters it’s hard to keep track. For this look I used Wet n wild in precious petals. It’s a fantastic drugstore highlighter and it’s super affordable!

Lips: Can I get an amen for a bold look 🙏🏼🙏🏼 I love a beautiful bold lip. In this look I used Mac Cosmetics Matte lipstick in ruby woo. This is one of my all time favourite lip colours.

Mascara: I have quite a few mascara that I use on the regular. For this look I used Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real. I absolutely love the want in this mascara. It’s so precise that you can get the little corner lashes as well.

I hope you enjoyed today’s look! I had fun creating it to share with you all 🙂

Until next time…

Physicians Formula: The Healthy Foundation SPF 20 Review

Physicians Formula The Healthy Foundation SPF 20 CAN $14

Today’s review will be on Physicians Formula The Healthy foundation SPF 20. First off we will start by reading what Physicians Formula says.

What PF says about this foundation:

What It Is:

A long-wearing, buildable, and breathable foundation that provides lightweight, medium coverage with a healthy, satin finish.

Why It’s Good For You:

Compatible with all skin types and featuring our exclusive Brightening Complex and Hyaluronic Acid to hydrate, brighten and improve the appearance of skin tone. Added boost of Vitamins A, C & E provides a flawless, healthy coverage.

Key Ingredients:

Brightening Complex (Chinese Wu-Zhu-Yu Extract), Hyaluronic Acid (Sodium Salts), Vitamin A, C& E Antioxidant Blend, Protective SPF 20

My opinion on PF SPF 20: When I first saw this at my local drugstore, I was a little disappointed with the shade range. I had to buy two shades to create a custom shade for my skin tone. I wanted to try this so bad, so for $14 per bottle I was ok with purchasing two.  I LOVE this foundation. I find myself reaching for it more than some of my high end foundations. Its a pretty full coverage foundation, and building up is effortless, with no drying or caking up.  It has a large doe foot applicator (similar to Tarte Shape Tape Foundation).  No wasting product whatsoever. I absolutely love these types of applicators. You can use your choice of tool to apply. I use a beauty blender, but you can use a brush as well. It feels fairly light on my skin. Some foundations feel super heavy for a full coverage look. This one felt fantastic. I will definitely be re-purchasing this foundation once I run out, and I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a reliable and affordable drugstore foundation.

Until next time…

Tarte Shape Tape Matte Foundation

Tarte Shape Tape Matte Foundation CAN $51

When it comes to foundation, finding the best one for you can be an extremely daunting task. Not to mention an expensive one. Not everyone has the ability to just go out and purchase a $60 bottle of foundation, only to find out that we hate it! It’s happened to me and I’m sure it has also happened to you as well.  That’s why I love doing reviews. I can share my experience and opinions with different products I have tried,  in hopes that it may help you out if you are curious about a specific product.  Today I will be reviewing Tarte Shape Tape Matte Foundation. I want to include that I did not receive this for testing purposes. I purchased this myself.

What Tarte Cosmetics Say:

WHAT IT IS

A vegan & oil-free full coverage foundation that feels weightless on skin, with a modern matte finish inspired by our iconic shape tape contour concealer.

WHAT IT DOES

• Full coverage with modern matte finish
• Absorbs oil & shine
• Helps refine pores
• Won’t flake or cake
• Vitamin E helps nourish

My Feelings On Tarte Shape Tape Matte Foundation:  When I first saw this all over IG, I knew I had to get my hands on it and see if it was as great as everyone was making this out to be. There was such a mass hype over this foundation, and I was intrigued. However at CAN $51 a bottle I hesitated for a while. It could only be ordered online and I had no idea what my shade would be. My curiosity got the best of me and went ahead and ordered myself one. Upon arrival, the first thing I loved about this foundation was the large doe foot applicator. You can apply as little or as much as you feel necessary without wasting any product. I don’t know about you, but wasting  product is a huge    no- no for me. This applicator is fantastic in preventing that.  I have combination skin. Typical oily t-zone and chin, so I was interested to see if this foundation would prevent that from happening by mid day. IT DOES!!  This is most definitely a very full coverage foundation. I would not suggest using this if you have dry skin.  When the description tells you this is a matte foundation, they were not lying! However if you have combo/oily skin like mine, I think you will love this. The only deterrent for me is that it has to be ordered online. Most people, like myself,  have a hard time deciphering what shade they may be.. I know I did. If this were to be sold at Sephora, I would be a lifetime user. The shade that i choose was a little too light for my skin tone, but I made it work by using a little bronzing powder after application. Worked like a gem 😉

My Final Thoughts: Yes I would recommend purchasing this to anyone. If a full coverage foundation is what you are in the market for, then look no further. Tartes Shape Tape Matte Foundation will leave you looking flawless.

Until next time…

Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer Review

HOURGLASS VEIL MINERAL PRIMER  CAN $63/30ML  $87/60ML

It’s no secret that I am truly a primer junkie. If it has the word ‘primer’ on the label, you best believe I’m the sucker who will buy it! I have spent so much money trying out new brands and formulas that I have lost count. However, my husband probably hasn’t 😉

Today I will be giving my honest opinion on HOURGLASS VEIL MINERAL PRIMER. I was not given this to review, I purchased myself so you can ensure this is my true feelings on this product.

What Sephora says in their description: What it is:
An oil-free primer with a silky, airy texture that leaves a smooth canvas for makeup, while reducing the look of redness, pores, and wrinkles.
What it does:
With a texture unlike any other, this silky primer extends the wear of makeup while also concealing redness, minimizing the appearance of pores, fine lines and wrinkles, and providing broad spectrum SPF 15 for a perfect complexion that lasts. It leaves a smooth, even surface so that foundation effortlessly glides on and stays put for all-day makeup wear. This unique primer has an airy, silky cloud-like texture and layers onto skin without added weight or a greasy after feel. It delivers Broad Spectrum SPF 15 sun protection with mineral-derived sunscreens. It’s ideal for all skin types, even sensitive, blemish-prone skin, and it repels water so makeup stays looks freshly applied all day long.

My personal opinion on HOURGLASS Veil Mineral Primer: First of all I have combo skin so finding a primer that does what it says isn’t always an easy task.  Upon seeing this primer I was drawn to the sleek packaging. The frosted glass pump style container is long, and fits perfectly around your hand. No awkward shaped bottles here. It dispenses the perfect amount of primer so you can use one pump, or more if you feel necessary. Once I started applying this primer, it was love at first feel! OH MY GOD, my skin felt like silk. It gave me the most incredible canvas to start my foundation application. My fine lines were filled, my pores appeared smaller, and any discolouration and redness had dramatically been reduced. I was in Love. I feel as though it made my foundation look flawless. As I stated, I have tried so many primers but HOURGLASS Veil Mineral Primer is one of the best I have ever purchased. It exceeded my expectations and I can justify the hefty price tag attached for such a great product. I will most definitely repurchase this primer and I would recommend any skin type to try it. I know you will love it as well!

Suggestion: Go to your local Sephora and ask for a sample. If you love it as much as I do, I would suggest purchasing the 60ML as it is a much better value as opposed to the 30ML bottle.

I hope this review helps you out if you are in the market for a new primer.

Until Next time….
