Essentials for your Wedding Bathroom Basket

1-01-WebDownloads1

Little bathroom amenity kits at weddings can be a nice extra for your guests. They can be a lifesaver for the guests and bridesmaids alike!

My wedding was nautical themed, so I put my amenity kit in these adorable little Anchor Cabinet boxes from Kikkerland. I love how they look, they are made of metal and have a secure latch on the side. They hold lots of items in them, and you can re-use them after!
While the list of what to include in your wedding bathroom kit could be endless, I’ve gathered a list of essentials that you should definitely include.
Mouthwash: Always a good idea, especially at a wedding!
Dove Spray Deodorant: Super easy to apply, and hygienic.
Soap & Glory Hand Food Lotion: Perfect for super soft hands!
Quo Setting SprayKeeps your makeup looking fresh if you shed a happy tear
Tide to Go Pen: This is a lifesaver! Perfect for getting rid of those accidental wine stains.
Pony Tail Ties: Great for securing flyaway hairs.
Joe Fresh Facial Blotting Tissues:It can get hot and sweaty on that dance floor, use this to clean up and extra shine!
QUO Cosmetic Applicators: For fine tuning your make up
What did you include in you wedding kit?
Thanks to Shoppers Drug Mart and Kikkerland for providing me with some of these essentials!

I had the opportunity to go back to school with Guerlain’s international makeup artist Maxime Poulin! The morning was full of beauty tips, and new product launched from French beauty brand Guerlain.

Maxime taught us everything from how to do an easy contour, to a history lesson of the makeup of the1920s! Here are some of my favourite tips I learned, as well as the new products Maxime introduced. (more…)

Say I Do with Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet

Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet

When planning a wedding, no detail is too small. From the perfect cake to the jaw dropping dress to the something blue, no detail is missed. One thing that is often overlooked in scent! Scent is very important. It just takes one whiff of the right scent to bring back memories of your wedding day. I wanted to find the perfect fragrance to spritz on my wedding day, and the ultra romantic Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet fit the bill! (more…)

[Try it!] Tarte Clay Foundation Stick

Tarte has a great brand new on the go product, Clay Stick Foundation. I was super excited to try this after hearing great reviews!

The foundation stick is full coverage, and is a powder to liquid formula meaning when it is put to your skin, the formula melts and is easy to blend out. Although it is full coverage, foundation feels super light weight on my skin which is not too common for full coverage foundations. The finish is also matte which is an extra bonus for me and my sometimes oily skin, and can be used as a concealer, or playing around with different shades you can highlight and contour.

The foundation has a flawless great finish which I love, and truly did stay on for the day (Tarte promises 12 hours) and looked great at the end of the night! Although I applied with a beauty blender for more coverage, Tarte also makes a brush called the smoothie blender which is also great for blending out the product if you want medium coverage.

Overall a great product!

Benefit has done a huge rebranding of all of their concealers! The quirky cosmetics company has rebranded the packaging, as well as the formula for their erase paste, which is now the Bo-oing Airbrush Concealer. Each product resembles super cute 90s school style erasers, hinting at the fact that you can erase any imperfections with each formula!

Makeup Forever Ultra HD Microfinishing Pressed Powder

The weather is getting hotter, which means more oiler skin, and more blotting! It’s hard when you’re on the go to find that perfect product that will mattify your skin. Thankfully, Makeup Forever came out with with new Ultra HD Micro finishing Pressed Powder!

Powder in Shade 01 Translucent

More convenient  than loose powder, because in the product comes in a little tin 6.2g square pan, perfect for putting in your purse on the go. The powder is one of the smoothest I’d ever felt!

The powder is light diffusing, ultra blurring, and promises to absorb oils with the help of silica and micronized pigments while illuminating features and a flawless finish.

It comes in 3 shades for every skin tone: 1 Translucent for light to medium skintones, 2 Banana for medium to tan skintones, and 3 Peach for tan to dark skintones. I received the translucent shade which can be used for every skin tone.

I used this powder to set my concealer before going out for a long day. The weather changed from moist and rainy, to humid and hot. The powder definitely held up well in my t-zone during all the changes! After I came back home my makeup was still in tact, and I was only a little bit oily!

Definitely a great alternative to loose powders when you’re oily and on the go!
