Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve heard of Rihanna’s new makeup line, Fenty Beauty. The line includes highlighters, primers, and of course, the fan favourite foundation with a whopping 40 shades for people of all colours. The foundation has been getting rave reviews from beauty bloggers, magazines, and everyday beauty lovers alike.
The foundation has medium coverage (buildable to full coverage) with a matte finish, and an oil-free formula. It also comes with 32ml of foundation instead of the traditional 30ml.To ensure that you’ll be matte for the whole day, the foundation is made with “climate-adaptive” technology resistant to sweat and humidity.
I received the foundation in Shade 370 which is a perfect match for my skin. When I first put on the foundation, I found it to be very natural looking on the skin, so it wasn’t very obvious that I was wearing foundation. The matte finish was also very nice, and made my skin very smooth. My favourite thing about this foundation is how long wearing it is.
I can definitely say that this is now my go to foundation when I know I won’t have time for touch-ups. I have worn it now about 3 times for 12 hour days, and to my surprise, when I come home my makeup still looks freshly applied.
I can’t wait see how this foundation performs in the summer months, but for now it will be great for holiday parties!
Fenty Beauty is available at Sephora
It’s finally the holidays! I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek of what’s in store this season at Shoppers Drug Mart.

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.
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.
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…)
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…)
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!
