Spending the morning traveling home from LA
Posting this look from a couple weeks back using the #hudabeautydesertdusk palette and even though the lighting is off I thought the look came out beautifully so I thought I'd share
I'm so excited to be going to my first fashion show tomorrow at Vancouver Fashion Week!!
Fun Fact: I use to make my own clothing in high school and even created my own designs on high heels I bought from the thrift store (not my finest fashion moments) I have always loved fashion and thought I'd persue a career in it and who knows, there's still time
Liquid lipsticks can highlight any dry & flaky patches and so prepping your lips prior to application can be crucial
Sharing how you can keep those lips soft & lipstick ready
Loving @nuggbeauty Exfoliating Lip Smoother to rid the lips of any dead skin or texture & following up with the Nügg Hydrating Lip Mask to bring moisture back to the lips
Also used the Nügg Exfoliating Lip Smoother
to help with removal of my lipstick at the end of the day!
Liquid lipstick can be a b*tch to remove
This breaks it down making it MUCH easier (plus you get to look like the joker) #SPONSORED#nuggbeauty

OIL SPILL SMOKEY I couldn't wait to share this with you all & had to post it immediately Inspired by my dear friend @leighdickson who shared her secret of using a black base to make the shadows POP!
My skin has been so unbelievably beautiful lately and then up pops this pain of an ass pimple
PMS strikes again lol
I wanted to show you guys how you can cover up and conceal these inevitable pimple problems
Full details on this look will be on the next post

And ALWAYS set with a good setting powder!! I used @lauramercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder
Side note* I fixed my shadow before I shot the end frame because it wasn't blending very well during the tutorial

Blonde & Bronzed
A big THANK YOU to my amazing stylist @hair.by.britt from @axishair for touching up my roots and giving my blonde a good toning
There's just something about that fresh blonde hair combined with a tan Yessss
Breaking out the @farsalicare Rose Gold Elixir to make my skin look ultra glowy & help my contour melt into my skin When I was watching this tutorial back I kept screaming "brush out your damn eyebrow!" But I never did and so it looks a bit funky the full way through lol
Just sitting down to edit a tutorial on this look & praying my lighting didn't play me
It was sunset as I was filming and so the little beams of light kept finding their way onto my face & neck threw the blinds
Made for beautiful photos tho
Wearing the @tartecosmetics
Make Magic Happen palette on the eyes & @maybelline Nude Lust Lipstick on my lips (one of my holy grail nudes)
Full Face details to come
I know y'all are going to ask for a hair tutorial and this hairstyle & it happened purely by accident and could not be recreated if I tried However I filmed a quick hair tutorial of the original look prior to this one
Hope you all are having wonderful start to your week

I've never been on a red carpet but I can assume I'd want to give myself a little extra TLC prior to getting super dolled up!

So excited I found a decent remix of a Lumineers song I had "singing along with a big crowd of people" on my bucket list and fulfilled it while watching the Lumineers preform at last years Osheaga
It was MAGICAL I cried happy tears
I get goosies everytime I hear their music now
It's been awhile since I've rocked any hoodie glam Fall is here
Quick side note: when using the Nude Stix you have to move quickly because they set quite quickly and are a bitch to blend once that's happened (I learned that REAL quick) So don't appy to both eyes like I did in the tutorial, one eye at a time is key

Feeling That youthful glow again
As some of you know I recently visited @drpavlou here in Vancouver for my first ever botox treatment
I shared with you all the procedure and have recieved SO many DM's asking me about the experience
My biggest fear was that I'd end up with a doctor that would stick me full of botox and I would come out looking plastic
But Dr. Pavlou was absolutely AMAZING and really made me feel comfortable and confident going into the procedure
I'm SO happy with the finished look and feel like the treatment enhanced my youthful appearance and really smoothed out my skin without making it look plastic
I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Pavlou if you are looking to get a little face refresh
The treatment focused on my forehead, crows feet and frown lines It was very quick with minimal discomfort and overall a wonderful experience
Makeup isn't only my full time job but it's also my therapy ________________________________
I've been having a hard week and have had an eye infection for the last 3 days due to stress & a lack of sleep brought on by anxiety.
I have SO much work to do and when I sat down to think about trying to film today and how I would be able to do it while basically being blind, I got emotional and broke down
I wanted to share this raw moment with you all because you have all shared some really raw moments with me.
We all struggle and life isn't always sunshine & butterflies But with kindness, support and understanding we are all able to push through those moments and come out the other side stronger
Now let's wipe those tears away & go kick today's ass Happy Friday Friends
I did this whole look basically blind and had to take my glasses on and off to make sure shit was all good The mascara I used was almost done so it got tossed afterwards to avoid any germs being spred
