Cactus Cute | Quo Spring 2019 Collection

Completely unrelated, but I just trimmed my bangs. It was totally stressful (it always is) but I always convince myself I can do it. I mean, I can, but my blood pressure must spike something crazy. Regardless, I am pleased to put the event behind me and chat makeup. No, not just any makeup, but the super adorable, cactus-clad products that make up the limited edition Quo Spring 2019 Collection.

Spring has been peeking around corners, then promptly snowing, but is creeping along (don't worry, it'll be allergy season before you know it.) With it come florals, brighter hues, and of course everything pastel. Revlon knows we all get to hankering for pastels this time of year, but has offered up something a little more interesting with glowing, shimmering, iridescent hues. Their selected products create the look as part of their Mythical Light Trend Report.

I'm old enough to remember the great smokey eye craze of the early 2000's. A time when smokey eyes were thought to only exist in shades of black and befuddled many a beauty lover. I remember spending hours in my first dorm room with a friend who had spent a small fortune at Shoppers Drug Mart in her quest to perfect such a look. It turns out, smokey eyes are one of the easiest looks to create and while you can smoke out any colour, look damn sexy in black.

Makeup Shakeup | The Rodial Edit

Spring is thinking of springing; I mean it certainly hasn't sprung quite yet here. I'm sure it's on its way... Maybe. Regardless, a new season is a great time to give your makeup bag and routine in general a little shakeup. Replace your mascara and maybe freshen up some of those everyday staples. Rodial has been taking over as one of my most beloved brands for years, but this newest batch of products.... So good and they might just be the new additions your routine needs.

The Fast Five | Living Coral Edition

Some years, the Pantone Colour of the year just doesn't vibe well with the beauty world. Then, we get a years like 2019's Living Coral which, just couldn't be better. Coral is one of those shades that casts such a wide net that there is a take that suits just about everyone. That pink-orange-red mix is just so hard to resist. But really, why would you?
