So I love trying new products and playing with different kinds of products, but I wanted to take the time to share my ride-or-die products that I continue to go back to. I love these kinds of posts so I hope you enjoy!...

I was very intrigued and hopeful when I first learned of Crayola Beauty so I had to pick up a few of their products for myself to try. Here are my first impressions of the highlighter crayon, the face crayon, and the lip and cheek crayon...

I was so excited to get my hands on this palette after seeing it online! I bought it the minute it launched and now that I've had time to play around with it I wanted to share my thoughts. So I'll be talking about the packaging, shades, performance, size, pricing and more!

Today I have a recreation tutorial, which I haven't done in a while! I was inspired by Anitta's makeup at the MTV Millenial Awards. I recreated her red carpet look and also amped it up to her performance look. I actually love how they turned out on me! Hope you like them too...

As the final instalment in the series I've been doing of a peek into my makeup studio - I have a Brush Collection video. I showed you what was in my Professional Brush Belt and now I'm showing you what brushes I use on myself and keep on my personal makeup table...

I got a request last week to do a full face of L'Oreal products so that is what I have for you in today's video. I have a quick tutorial followed by a rundown of my thoughts on each product. Enjoy!

I picked these up last week while having a "quick" stop at Penneys. There is a whole Nude collection (which is clearly based off of the KKW brand) ranging from lip kits to eyeshadow palettes to nails. This set caught my eye and after trying a couple for a makeup look, I knew I had to do some lip swatches. Enjoy!

My main concern when it comes to base products is controlling oil. So I am having a Battle of the Matte Primers. Today I am starting with my old favourite No7 Shine Free versus my new favourite Kiko Matte Face Base. Take a look at the results:
