It’s no secret that I have a major love for lip products; a good lipstick can take you from a bad mood to a good one, instill confidence, and make you feel full on glam. Read on to see my top lipstick picks for a kiss-worthy pout (just in time for Valentine’s Day).
The Revlon Ultra HD Lipcolors have quickly become a favourite of mine. They combine gorgeous colour, a smooth finish, and deep hydration into one shiny little package. They’re unbelievably comfortable on and their slightly sweet scent makes them perfectly kiss-worthy.
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!).
I know, you’re already a boss lady, but sometimes the right lipstick can just give you that little bit of edge that makes you feel like you’re ready to kick ass. I find that a killer lipstick shade has this amazing ability to change your attitude; whether you’re having a bad day, not feeling so hot, or are getting ready for that big presentation, it can help give you this little boost of confidence.
I’ve rounded up 5 lipsticks that are going to put you in the mood to take on the day – and the world. So take your pick, put it on, and tell yourself you’ve got this.
Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet in Rouge Charnel Sometimes you just need a good red to instill a little confidence, and Chanel knows reds like no other. This matte, deep red will have you feeling great as soon as you put it on. Coco Chanel put it best: “If you’re sad, add more lipstick and attack.”
Maybelline New York Loaded Bolds in Rebel Pink – Make a statement with this bold fuchsia. I think it’s safe to say that you’ll command attention and show that you play by your own rules with this shade on your lips.
Make Up For Ever Artist Rouge in c506 (Click here for swatches!) – This deep berry shade is as sophisticated as it is fierce. Packed with colour, this lipstick lasts, so you don’t have to worry about touch ups as you build your empire.
Smashbox Always On Liquid Lipstick in Bawse – This liquid lipstick, created in collaboration with YouTube star Lilly Singh, could not have been any more appropriately named. The lightweight, matte lipstick is a stunner, with extremely long-lasting colour (I’ve put it to the test), and it honestly looks amazing on everyone. Total win.
Lipstick Queen Eden Lipstick (at Murale) – This gorgeous red (with, yes, a subtle hint of green shimmer) will have you looking and feeling fresh. The shade is instantly brightening and deeply moisturizing so your lips feel comfortable and soft the entire time you wear it.

Ok guys, I had to share this because I’m so excited about it… Baz Luhrmann, the filmmaker behind some of my favourite films (Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge, The Great Gatsby) has collaborated with Chanel on a second short film featuring the iconic Chanel No 5. Featuring the stunning Gisele Bundchen, tells the story of the modern No 5 woman, struggling to find space for everything her life and following her heart to get what she wants.
“The CHANEL woman can be with herself on a beach, can be with her child, can have an aspirational and fulfilling work life, and at the same time she can have a true relationship; she can have romance,” says Luhrmann. “And in the end, the CHANEL woman chooses love.”
Take a look at the teaser video below – the full film will be released tomorrow. What do you think?
Every now and then a look comes along that I have to share, and at this past weekend’s SAG Awards, I had a clear winner. 12 Years A Slave star and Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role winner Lupita Nyong’o has been absolutely killing it on the red carpet so far this award season, and her appearance at the 2014 SAG Awards was no different. Of course, she’s a natural beauty, but can we please take a second to bow down to her beauty and styling team for this look? Between the show-stopping Gucci dress and perfectly pretty, colour-matched makeup, Lupita looked absolutely stunning. Take a look at some of the products used to create this look and some of my other picks that can easily help you recreate it at home. What do you think of Lupita’s look?
