Pretty in pink

I’ve done it! I’ve set my MAC red aside and turned to something a little lighter.

MAC full speed – it’s sheen supreme lipstick, and it’s rather cute. I don’t normally go for light pink lips but I thought with spring coming, I should give it a try.

MAC is also introducing a new line of spring lip colours this week I am itching to get my hands on. The guy who helped me pick out full speed said it’s pretty similar to the new line.

Here are some of the colours set to hit MAC stores this Thursday.

I can’t lie, I love them.


Today I have a little sharing to do, because sharing is caring…

My current favourites in blush, bronzers, and the like.

Because winter skin is the worst. And I don’t believe in tanning beds anymore. I was once a golden girl back in my teenage years, but skin cancer runs in the family so I’d rather not risk it!

My sister got this for me not too long ago and I can’t get enough of it! I use it on the daily. Best trio a girl can find. Plus I love Benefit, especially their mascara.

I’m also a big fan of stila! You might grimace at the price, but I swear to you, your face is worth it!

I might gush over my trio up there, but for every day I love gingerly, by Mac. If you’re light skinned and have auburn hair like me, you should too! Goes well with Mac red lips and heavy mascara!

My bronzer has been the same since seventh grade. I’m not kidding…

It’s the only thing in my make-up bag I don’t spend ridiculous amount of money on. So at least I’m saving in one department.

What works for you?


Fall is here, so I am happy to welcome my leather boots back into my life.

I would like the weather to stay a bit warm for now though. I’m having trouble letting go of a few things…


But alas I must eventually. It’s a hard time, when the seasons change. But I always try to look on the bright side…chunky sweaters and knits are finally going to be freed from the confines of my closet. I think they will be pleased to get a peak at the great outdoors.

I’m moving into the new season with a different look. Darker colours, but lets be honest, I own a lot of grey and black. BUT my newest addition to not my wardrobe but my makeup case is a rather sultry red lipstick. I never thought I would, but alas, this weekend I slipped into MAC red and fell in love. FYI the paler you are the better it wears. It’s actually making me want to lose colour…
And to go with your intense lips you want a simple eye.
black liner it is. If you do it just right you don’t need and eyeshadow, maybe a neutral colour but personally, I dig a thick black line on its own. Beef up your lashes and your set.
my new favourite:
And to kick off with a tune…
it reminds me of being warm on a beach somewhere.
