I'm convinced that whoever invented fluorescent lighting had a very personal vendetta against me. I hate it. It's yellowy hues casts a greenish, blue light over my skin making me look tired and sick. It's harshness brings out every line and crease. Clearly, fluorescent lighting is an evil tool designed to make me look my worst.

With September just around the corner, we've been overdosing on fall makeup and fashion. Two of the trends that stuck with us were the bold crimson lip and big, full brows as seen at Yves Saint Laurent, Oscar de la Renta and Chanel. The vampy, deep lip in shades of red, magenta and purple isn't for a wallflower but we're finding it refreshingly sexy. A polished, bushy brow is the...

You've woken up late for work, you're in a rush and you still can't find anything good/clean to wear in your closet (are yoga pants office appropriate?). Makeup isn't your priority, but you still want to look your best and presentable (afterall, isn't that big meeting today?). 

What you need is a makeup quickie. A look that you can put together in a few minutes that leaves...

Whether you're a makeup pro or a minimalist, cat eyes are a simple and easy addition to your make up routine no matter what your mood. The thing I love about cat eyes is I can create simple ones for a nice every day look or try different kinds to get a more vivacious look.

The Right Tools

Liquid, Pencil or Gel? If you're trying this for the first time or even if you're a pro, the kind...

I was really impressed by Alexandra’s look for her $20 Makeup Challenge which prompted me to put my own bargain hunting skills to the test! I have to say I’m pretty good at finding quality makeup at a fraction of the price. Most of my favourite makeup are drugstore brands so I thought I would breeze through this challenge no problem…Turns out, it was a lot harder to stay within budget....

Moment of truth: I don't actually need glasses. But, I do love the look of them. When I put on my geek chic specs, I feel totally transformed. They totally change the way my face looks and it's so much fun to play dress up. I'll admit it: I totally envy you bespectacled chicks out there. 

However, the one thing I don't envy is the fact that it can be hard to design a...

A while back, I posted a video about the $20 makeup challenge that's been making the rounds in the YouTube world. Here's the scenario: you're traveling and your luggage has been lost (no!).  Oh, and you're also on a budget (double no!). You have $20 and $20 only to go out an purchase everything you'll need to create an acceptable look. This may not seem too...

I've already told you that lately, I can't stop day dreaming about fairy tales. Of course, I also can't stop day dreaming about the princes in them (but we'll leave that until our next Gratuitous Hottie Face Off). Seeing as I'm all about the romance and whimsy of these stories, I'm counting down the days until the new Snow White and the Huntsman movie is released (I'll...

I have one very dirty little secret when it comes to my beauty routine: I rarely clean my brushes. It's kind of embarrassing to admit. I'm not sure if this makes a difference but I swear I'm not a dirty gross person you guys, I'm just super lazy when it comes to that sort of thing.

I confess that I know that I should clean my brushes (and I'm sure Mandy will chastise me over and...

Tell me if this scenario sounds familiar: 

You've just splurged and purchased yourself a fancy new blush, bronzer or powder foundation. The packaging is pristine, the compact is still smooth and it almost looks too good to use. Then again, you really, really, really want to play around with your new beauty toy so you go ahead and dip your brush in. Only, your hand isn't as steady as...
