Super EOTD's!! - 3 Looks below :)

With so many events over the Summer with family and friends, I have done a variety of eye looks, but didn't get a chance to post them.  Here are the first batch below (I will post details soon).  If there is a particular look you like, please let me know, and I will share that one first!

Wore this look to my cousin's wedding :)

I love my blues!!! I also wore this look to my cousin's pre-wedding event :)

Great smokey brown with a pop of colour :)

Summer Friendly Makeup :)

During this holiday weekend, I am sure that everyone will be outdoors and sometimes indoor makeup just doesn't quite work as well especially if you are lounging by a pool or attending a Barbecue.

Therefore, here are a few items that are my outdoor/summer friendly makeup:

1.  Eyes - Champagne Eye Shadow
Result:  A nice shimmery eyelid without it being over done.
Faves:  MAC's Woodwinked & All that Glitters

2.  Mascara - Anything Waterproof
Result:  Nice flirty, wide eyes
Faves:  Maybelline Lash Stiletto

3.  Lips - Pink Toned Lips
Result:  Looks easy and fresh!
Faves:  Avon LipGlaze, NYX Lipgloss in French Kiss , Vasanti Lipstick in Sweden

4.  Skin - Lightweight Powder & Glowy Skin Products
Result:  Will look more natural and not drip off your face :)
Faves:  MAC Mineralized Skin Finishes (By Candlelight or any) , Vasanti Face Base

Nice, easy, quick and simple!

Caribana/Carnival Series - Look 1

It's Caribana tiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiime......(I am aware of the name change but for as long as I remember it has been known as Caribana). 

In honour of this weekend's festivites, I have created a series of looks that I will be posting throughout the weekend, so be sure to come back and check them out!!!

This was so much fun to create, a masquerade ball with a butterfly effect.  I hope you all enjoy it!

More to come!

CoverGirl NEW Lip Perfection Lipstick

I am in LOVE with these lipsticks! They provide amazing colour payoff AND luminosity! The lipsticks look and feels amazing on your lips.  I picked up a few shades from Shoppers Drug Mart, AND they were on sale, which was  a bonus!

The product is described on
CoverGirl website as a lipstick that:
- is enriched with Silk Therapy Complex,
- helps to sustain levels of moisture
- helps create soft, smoother, beautiful lips in just 7 days vs. bare lips

The Collection is presented in the following categories:
Nudes, Corals & Reds
Lilacs, Mauves & Burgundies
Pinks to Roses

I found that the application was very smooth and extremely long lasting, and very pigmented.  The only con is that these tend to stain the lip so use a very good makeup remover.  As for the change in lip condition, I haven't wore the shades long enough to see a difference on my lips yet, but will let you know :)
