What’d You Use? – Volume II

welcome to the second instalment of what’d you use. all the products i used to create this look are listed below with stores and websites where you can purchase each item.
my apologies for the poor quality in photos, i tried a new foundation and did not like it (stay tuned…), so i covered it with my MUFE and i think it created a white cast which did not photograph as well as my usual looks do. but anyways, on to the product list. Continue reading

What’d You Use? – Volume I

i always get asked what products i use to create looks, so to make things easier i thought i would create a series called what’d you use so i can share all the products i used with you! i will list the prices and i will link the website (if available) where you can purchase the products used as well, and if not i will let you know which stores should carry them.

this is the look i wore to kanye west’s saint pablo tour when he blessed winnipeg. i wanted to use reds as a lot of the merch had red accents, and the show’s lighting consisted of warm tones and reds. Continue reading

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette Review And Swatches

happy monday everyone and welcome back!
today’s post is all about the first ever urban decay celebrity collaboration. that collaboration is with the one… the only… gwen stefani. *cue applause*
now if you’re anything like me, you’re a big gwen fan. rock steady was my favourite back when i was an oily pre-teen and gwen’s solo career was utterly awesome. i’m mean it was bananas (b-a-n-a-n-a-s). not only is her music amazing but her fashion is bomb, and i don’t even think we need to discuss how beautiful she is and how amazing her makeup is. she has so many amazing signature looks!
i know the holiday gift guide post was supposed to be next but… Continue reading
