2017 has come and gone and with it a slew of new beauty products that I had a chance to test out. I’ve gone through my stash and the products that I’ve loved to bring you my 2017 Beauty Favourites. I fell in love with all of these products for different reasons – watch the video above to find out why!
Saje Wellness Shut Eye Soothing Eye Shade – If you’re a light sleeper, like me, you’ll want to give this mask a try. It’s super comfortable and the lavender inside helps to calm me down before I go to bed.
Stila Magnificent Metals – Legit one of my biggest obsessions from the past year. They add instant glamour to any look, and even though they’re meant for the eyes you can totally use them to emphasize your cheeks or lips.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette – I highly doubt you need to hear from me how amazing this palette is, but in case you haven’t given it a shot yet, just do it. The shades are beautiful and pigmented & it’s created some of my favourite eye looks from the past year.
Hey guys! I made another video, another first – here are my August favourites. I definitely stuck to a bit of a skincare theme last month and was really focused on repairing and trying to keep my skin healthy with everything that goes on during the summer (hint: there’s a lot). Late nights and lots of activities really take their toll on the skin, so I’ve been focused on products that help to perk my skin up and give it a bit more life.
While protecting your skin from the sun is a must, you can still rock a golden glow easily (minus the skin damage) thanks to the magic that is self tanner. Vita Liberata Ten Minute Tan ($49) gives you a natural looking tan in, you guessed it, ten minutes, while its advanced technology supports natural collagen protection.

Take care of your skin in the winter with these products!
Guys. Winter is coming. The cold weather can be harsh on your skin, so today I’m sharing my winter skincare routine and the products that I’m going to be using during the colder months to keep my skin in good shape!
I like to stick to products that are going to be gentle on my skin while providing great moisture – skin tends to dry out during the colder months, so it’s important to stay hydrated! I like to kick things off by removing my makeup with Chanel Le Bi-Phase Visage face makeup remover. It quickly removes all of my makeup before I cleanse, so I can make sure everything comes off. I follow up with a quick clean using Consonant’s Natural Foaming Face Wash (all natural AND Canadian!) with my Clarisonic Aria (if you haven’t tried Clarisonic yet, add it to your wish list – your skin will thank you!).
Summer may be winding down, but there’s still lots of time to take advantage of the beautiful weather and adventures that come with this time of year. When packing for a quickie getaway, it’s definitely important to minimize what you bring and pack a few key essentials that will get you through the trip! I’m sharing my favourite picks below – what are yours?
bliss triple oxygen radiance restoring mist – when you’re spending time traveling, whether it be by car, train or plane, there’s nothing worse than arriving at your destination and feeling like you need a complete refresher. This energizing face mist from bliss helps to wake your skin up, boost radiance, and freshens makeup so you can be ready to go as soon as your arrive.
Sephora Dry Clean Instant Dry Brush Cleaner Spray – Let’s face it – no one wants to waste precious vacation time cleaning their brushes while they’re away, but we always want our brushes feeling fresh for perfect application. This quick fix takes care of both of these; after giving your brush a couple of quick sprays, just sweep the brush over a tissue or towel to clear off surface residue. The best part? You don’t have to wait for your brush to dry.
Foreo Luna Play (at Murale) – Get ready to fall in love with this pocket-sized cleansing device. I’m sure you’ve already heard a ton about the Mini’s big sister, the original Luna; get ready to see the same cleansing action packed into this absolutely adorable version. While it still boasts the dual-zone layout, this smaller version comes pre-charged with 100 uses (this version is not rechargeable) and is perfect for a traveler.
MaskerAide All Eyes On Me Eye Gel Patches – I’m sure you’ve noticed I’m constantly singing MaskerAide’s praises, and they’ve made me a believer once again with their new eye gel patches. These larger sized gels fit comfortably under the eye, and after being worn for 15-30 minutes, leave the eyes looking brighter and refreshed, thanks to ingredients like their 100 Herb Complex and Hyaluronic Acid. If you need a quick refresh while you’re away, throw them on in the morning and feeling like a million bucks in half an hour.
Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micellar Solution – Need to take it all off after a busy (or sweaty) day? Pack one of these travel sized bottles of Bioderma’s famed micellar water. A quick swipe or two of this lightweight solution removes makeup and leaves the skin feeling fresh & clean!
Stila Perfect Me, Perfect Hue Eye & Cheek Palette – Cut down on the makeup you pack with this multi-tasking palette. Complete with a 4 shadows, a liner shade, and two blushes, you have almost everything you need for a complete face, in neutral hues. Toss a BB cream & mascara in your bag, and you’ll be good to go!
