Caryl Baker Visage Spring 2016: Bloom

It’s been some time since I shopped Caryl Baker makeup, but this spring, I’ve been won over with their Bloom collection.  It has pretty colours for eyes, cheeks, and lips that can be worn together or alone.

MAC x Caitlyn Jenner

If there’s one lipstick I’m getting this Spring, it’s going to be the MAC Caitlyn Jenner colour, Finally Free, which launches April 7th.  Described as a Rosy Nude, Caitlyn decided to create this colour so that people would buy it, wear it often, and then buy it again!  As much as I love a good […]

New Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Concealer

…so, I have to give a shout out to Wayne Goss and his video Makeup Trends That Need to Die in 2016 because it’s everything that I really think about makeup.  Yes, I love contour, highlighting, strobing, blush, concealer, lots of lipstick, etc, but all at the same time?  No way.  The video basically slams the […]
