The holidays are actually just around the corner! It’s time to start breaking out glittery eyeshadows, deep lipsticks and festive manicures. Here are my favourites from ACI.
If you want huge oversized lashes give Cargo Boundless Mascara ($20) a try! The oversized brush has 3 different textures so you can get maximum intensity. The soft bristle coats lashes with just enough product, the firm bristles gives increased volume, and spiked bristles gives defined curls and separation. I use all three for a dramatic holiday look.
With cold weather and snow comes watery eyes and runny mascara. Some waterproof formulas are not the best in lengthening and fanning out my lashes. Fusion Beauty has changed my opinion of waterproof mascara with their Xtension ($28) dramatically lengthening fibre mascara. With micro fibers and nourishing ingredients, it promises no smudges or clumps which has been great in cold weather! (more…)

“The Perfect Manicure is just myopic details,” says Tom. “Focus on the basics and the better you do the basics the better your manicure looks.” (more…)
We all love nail polish and having colour on our nails. However, we all want to take care of our nails at the same time. Sally Hansen has released a new collection called Colour Therapy that’s an infusion of both colour and care. What’s different? These polishes have an infusion of argan oil and a blend of primrose oil for ultra nourishment. (more…)
The packaging for the lovely L’Oréal Paris La Vie En Rose by Colour Riche collection was almost as stunning as the collection! Isn’t it pretty? The pink roses were a perfect touch. (more…)
