Or at least, I'd like to hope! My brow journey has been a rough one. My early teen years saw them plucked to a curved thin line - Myspace scene kid aesthetic anyone? (Those photos will never see the light of day.) I manged to grow them out a bit but the stress of university introduced a little trich tick, where I pulled out almost half of my eyebrow hairs in order to cope. Finally, I feel like I'm at a place where I'm relatively happy with my brows, both in thickness and in shape. I've tried out a plethora of brow products these past few years and I'm here to share my secrets.
Hello everyone! Today I'll be sharing some of the progress on my Sailor Pluto cosplay! If you've been following me on my other social media accounts like Instagram and Facebook, you'll have known that I've previously cosplayed Sailor Mars and Sailor Jupiter! I'm such a huge fan of the Sailor Moon series as it was quite dear to me growing up. Pluto will likely be my last Sailor Scout cosplay before I retire the bodysuit, and I've decided to post all of my progress.
I'm modifying my basic white Sailor Scout bodysuit, and the black skirt is a simple circle skirt pattern. The bow is borrowed from my Sailor Mars cosplay.
I have a few more updates to come, so stay tuned! You can check out my previous cosplay tutorials / progress reports under the Cosplay Progress tab.
This post will be covering the tiara, boots, and sailor collar.
Sephora Favorites are some of my favourite makeup kits - they're a great way to try out a curated line of their most popular items...through a selection of deluxe sample and full sized products! I was scouring the Sephora website when I spotted their Sephora Favourites 2016 Bronze Bares-All set!
This 8 piece kit contains a range of products suited to give you that bronzey summer glow we're all looking for. (I'm super pale, and I'm hoping to tan a bit this summer...this kit is perfect!) I don't own any of the products in this kit, and I figured this kit would be the perfect opportunity. Eight items for $48... That works out to be about $6 per item!!! SIX DOLLARS!! For a mini Nars bronzer and a Becca Highlighter? Yes please!!
...Say that five times fast! I've seriously been loving light and bright shades for spring - a stark difference from the berry and oxblood shades that have been gracing my nails these past winter months. Neutral shades are clean and demure, which fits quite well with the young blossoms of spring! It's finally getting warmer too - yesterday was a shocking 25C, considering it was snowing about a week ago!
There are some lovely soft neutrals on the markets lately - Essie is a real winner in my book! (With an honourable mention to Sephora's Formula X, but we'll get into that in a second. Here are my top four faves for neutral nails this spring!
(...Minus to $$$, but thanks for the catchphrase Charlotte!) Glow bases seem to be all the rage these days - a viral trend that seems to be taking over our blogs, our instagram feeds, and of course, our makeup kits! I'll admit, I'm not that into the glow. I have quite dry skin and I feel like sometimes a sheen can emphasize that. In the summer, I'm pretty sure I sweat enough that I could pass off the perspiration as "that new hourglass setting powder!"
I'm not super super into matte - I guess I lean more towards...satin finishes? Is that the term? Dewy, I suppose. Here are my top pics for the days I do feel like being lit from within.
About two weeks ago, Sperrens and I were invited to the Toronto launch of The Estee Edit! As you may have heard, The Estee Edit is part of the Estee Lauder line, but with a fresher and more trendy approach! We walked down to The Distillery District (which I had surprisingly never been to - it's so rustic and cute!) The launch was actually held at a venue called Airship 37. The room we were in was chic and modern looking, decorated with white couches and blue lighting, totally on par with the brand's look!
There were makeup stations set up in the middle of the room to play with the products...
