Skin deep

I must say, Canadian companies have been taking the beauty world by storm, specifically in my city of Toronto, it has been killing it recently (with my favourite skincare brand being DECIEM’s The Ordinary FYI). A new discover has been Sade Baron, which is another amazing Canadian company that crafts together their own soaps, mists, body & hand care in-house focusing on beneficial plant-based ingredients and essential oils that work best on your skin and body. Sade Baron let me pick out a view items to enjoy from their 100% vegan and cruelty-free line. Read more »

KKW

You’ve all already heard about it by now, but Kim Kardashian West has finally launched her own makeup line. Since I’ve already tried out Kylie Cosmetics, I thought I’d give it a go with another Kardashian/Jenner beauty product. Right from the get-go I knew I wanted to try KKW Beauty‘s first products, which happen to be contour and highlight kits. Aside from eyebrow products, natural contour and highlight are my second favourite steps when it comes to doing my makeup. Read more »

In the sun

It’s finally feeling and looking a lot like summer in my city and I couldn’t be more happier! Although we haven’t had many scorching hot days just yet (not complaining at all since it makes these summer days very comfortable!), the sun is out to play. Influenster pulled through again and hooked me up with some new Shiseido goodies for protecting my skin from the UV rays. Read more »

Hard Candy

As we’re constantly evolving, our taste naturally change over time as well. As I get a little bit older it’s becoming more apparent on how I treat and view makeup. My past perspectives were about trying to hide things I didn’t like, while my new perspectives are always trying to enhancing the features I was born with instead. Many, if not all of us, are also swayed by trends and we find inspiration in them. Makeup can be and will always be a fun thing to play around with no matter where you are in life. Read more »

The Hot Stone

As someone such as myself who gets 4-5 workouts in during the week, while doing my best to eat healthier by bringing in more veggies and making it a huge point to cook more than eating outside, I sometimes forget that relaxation is a key factor too when it comes to our overall health and well-being. I’ve been into meditation for awhile, and as surprising as it may sound I haven’t further explored other methods of it or really ever thought of massage being a form of it as well. Getting massages regularly not only feel amazing, but they’re proven to alleviate stress, improve flexibility and circulation, lower blood pressure, strengthen your immune system, and help you get better sleep.

New beauty

With summer just around the corner, now is the perfect time to introduce new products into your routine. A full face of makeup really isn’t ideal in heat waves and humidity so I like to stick with makeup that is light yet durable, and has the purpose of protecting the skin from the sun. Realistically we’re going to be in the sun a lot more so we might as well be smart about it too! Read more »

In your face

beauty-origin-lab
This year, 2017, so far has been all about skincare. Aside from my own interest of improving my complexion, I was lucky enough to be introduced to so many new skincare discoveries and products to stir-up my enthusiasm for it. When I was in my early twenties I didn’t think much of it — a cleanser, a harsh astringent, moisturizer, and a spot treatment were all I had and only knew of. Read more »
