Hello everyone! Today I wanted to share my winter essentials. I know that a lot of YouTube gurus and bloggers have already done this, but for me, winter didn’t really start until January when we got a lot of snow and super cold temperatures. Last week, we maxed out at the lovely temperature of -31 C. I’ve been using a lot of products lately and I’ve noticed that these are the products I’ve been reaching for the most! You’ve seen some of them before, but a few of them are brand new to the blog! Enjoy and let me know in the comments what YOUR winter essentials are!
I’m back with a different sort of post today! As I was surfing some of my favourite blogs, I came across this post by Louise (Sprinkle of Glitter). A beauty challenge that allows full creativity? I’m in! I really liked this idea because it’s a great way to find some new makeup looks and also find new blogs to follow! So, without further a-do, here is Louise’s picture (head on over to her blog) and the look that I came up with!
Good Evening (or whatever time it is where you are!)
Lise Waiter is a brand that was developed and is sold within Canada. The brand is based out of Montreal, Quebec. This product was a gratis (free product) from the company. I really like this liner for a number of reasons! It is waterproof, which means that once it is on your waterline, it is there for the day (or night!). Another reason I like this product is because of the color. As you can see in the first picture, it is called “Raisin Noir” or Purple Black (for those non-Frenchies!)- this is such a unique color because it is a dark purple that almost looks black when it is on. I have hazel eyes and find that when I wear this, the green in my eyes seems to stand out more than ever! If you are able to get your hands on one of these liners (RRP in Canada ~$18) try one! They are great quality and have fabulous color payoff!
I could not be happier that I decided to purchase this. I had played around with it at work a number of times and have used it countless times while doing makeup on customers and have been so impressed by it. The three colors, peach, lavender and green act to counteract different colors in the skin that make it look less than perfect. The 3 colors are suspended in a serum that gives an extra boost of hydration (great in the winter time) and has “bio available minerals.” I use One Step Correct after my cleanser and moisturizer as a foundation primer. I don’t know if it necessarily helps my foundation to last longer, but it definitely feels great on the skin and helps to correct those pesky red cheeks of mine!
