review: revlon youth FX (fill + blur primer for forehead)


Everyone has insecurities. It would be a complete and total lie if I pretended there weren't certain things that bothered me or that I was hyper conscious of. Like my forehead. I know, it seems like a silly thing to be worried about, but it has always bothered me. Basically, I am a very expressive person when I talk (and often pull silly faces for no reason at all). That coupled with my dry skin (which can exaggerate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles) means that there are lines on my forehead that do not go away. It has been that way for as long as I can remember. Even when I was a teenager! Talk about annoying. Which is why the Revlon Youth FX Fill + Blue Primer for Forehead was so intriguing. Could it be? An answer to my problem?

paris hilton week: makeup review (lip set + highlight)


It is always exciting when two of your interests collide. For instance, Paris Hilton and makeup. I'd head about her makeup line for ages but was never able to get my hands on it. (It wasn't being sold in my country at the time.) Then, on a trip to the USA several months back....I found some. Excited? Me? Absolutely. Whether or not the makeup was actually any good....well that was another question altogether. If you have been wondering about the Paris Hilton makeup line, keep reading. Today's post is a review of her lip set and cream highlighter.

paris hilton week: perfume collection


Scents have a way of transporting you to another time and place. Of reminding you who you were...and who you can be. There is a power in a fragrance bottle. It offers both nostalgia and a host of shiny new possibilities. Maybe that is why my perfume collection is so special to me. Each and every scent offers insight into my past yet still holds promise for the future. Paris Hilton is no stranger to fragrances. In fact, she has a whopping twenty-three under her belt.

While I don't own all of them (trust me, I am working on it), there are a fair few in my collection. In honour of Paris Hilton week here on the blog....I wanted to show you my collection! Here is a peek at the Paris Hilton perfumes I know and love.

paris hilton week: fashion inspiration


Few pop culture icons are as divisive as Paris Hilton. This heiress first made a splash back in the 2000's with The Simple Life (and that infamous tape) and somewhere along the line, managed to transform herself into a walking, talking brand. From follow up TV shows to movie roles, guest spots, a shoe and handbag line, a music career, DJ events, an uber successful fragrance line, and even cosmetics....Paris has a pretty impressive resume. So, this week all of the posts on the creation of beauty is art. are dedicated to this fabulous entrepreneur.

looking back: holiday makeup looks


The sad truth? All of the magic and wonder that makes the holiday season special has come to an end. Instead, we are left with chilly temperatures and massive piles of snow. Even though we are at the start of a fresh new year (with lots of resolutions to focus on)....I can't help but miss December. I miss the festive colours, the get-togethers, and the wonderful family traditions. Oh, and the makeup! I had a lot of fun this holiday season incorporating colour and glitter into my looks. Which is actually what this post is all about. I wanted to share a few of my seasonal makeup looks with you. From pre-Christmas events to New Years Eve and everything in between.

beginner series: choosing the right blush shade


When it comes to blush, the possibilities are endless. Pink, raspberry, mauve, bronze, and every colour in between. The right shade? It can pull your entire makeup look together. Suddenly that smokey eye doesn’t look so overwhelming and that bold lipstick has a little more balance. That is the beauty of this finishing touch. It can add polish and poise in a flash! Unless you are sporting the wrong shade for your skin tone. Then your entire look can appear unflattering or out of sorts. Make sure that never happens to you. Get ready to find the right blush shade…
