[OUTFIT] Bows for Wings

A huge fluffy bow on comfy t-shirt? Um yes please. I've been obsessing over this top for the last little bit. Whenever I wear this, everyone is squealing at how cute the bow is! Definitely an eye catching piece to have in my wardrobe.

[REVIEW] O-Lens Shining Hazel Circle Lenses

Quick and short post on these subtle hazel lenses from O-Lens - the brand that is currently endorsed by Exid's Hani! These are my go-to for a natural look and when I want just a bit of extra sparkle in my eyes. The diameter is 14.2 so there isn't too much of an enlarging effect which is perfect if you have small eyes like me! They are monthly disposable, my ideal duration for contacts.

I got mine from Pinkicon - right here!

Mid-Year Make Up Favourites

Time is flying by ever so quickly this year. Hard to believe that half a year has already gone by! I've picked out some make up products I've been reaching for the most in the past few months to share with everyone.

For base make up, Iope's Air Cushion XP has been my fave hands down. They were the first ones to come out with cushion make up and they definitely got it right! I'm using the shade N21 Ice Vanilla which has minimal to medium coverage (build-able). It comes in 4 different formulas: N(atural), C(over), I(ntense Cover), and M(atte). The Natural finish is a mixture between dewy and velvet - which is perfect all year round. SPF 50 for all the lazies who can't be bothered to apply sunscreen separately.

If you like having natural looking long lashes, Innisfree's Skinny Microcara (Waterproof) is the one to go for. This features an ultra-skinny brush which saves you from getting mascara all over your lids - specially useful for lower lashes! This holds curl for my stick straight lashes all day long with no problem. There is no smudging or budging with this mascara either!

Continuing on with eye make up, Stilla's Stay All Day Waterproof Eyeliner really does stay all day for me! This is probably the only liquid eyeliner that doesn't smudge for me. I have somewhat oily lids and even the Kat Von D does not cut it for me. The only thing I don't like about this is that it's a felt tip and not brush tip - but the long lasting factor has won me over completely. I use this daily in Dark Brown for a natural look.

Highlighting my inner corner/aegyol sal is a must for my eye make up. Aritaum's Shine Fix Eyes is the one for the job. My fave shade is #22 Cinnamon Rose. It's a bronze-y pressed glitter which is super sparkly! I dab this on the middle of my lids as a highlight as well. It's a mix between a cream and powder which makes it very long lasting.

Impulse buys are always a hit or a miss. The Nature Republic's Glow Oil Tint in Baby Peach was definitely a hit for me! It's a super moisturizing oil-essence lip tint that doesn't dry your lips out at all. When swatched, it appears to be a sheer oil but slowly turns into a beautiful coral shade. The shine fades after a few hours but you're left with a beautiful peachy tint.

Lastly, a brush favourite! I'm not really a make up brush person - I usually apply everything with just my finger tips. However, I was in the market for a powder brush since I don't actually own one. This Powder Brush from Rodial* is everything you can ask for in one: soft, huge and fluffy! The quality of the bristles are amazing.

And that is the end of my mid year make up favourites! What are some of your make up favourites so far this year?

[CIRCLE LENS] Loveil Aqua Rich 1Day Soft Contact Lenses in Ash Grege

Long time no circle lense review! I ran out of brown contacts so I've been relying on these grey dailies for the this month while waiting for my new ones to arrive. These are my first pair from the brand Loveil. They are a Japanese circle lens brand that can only be bought through Rakuten if you don't live in Japan. 

Comfort: Daily disposable circle lenses are always very comfortable for me - 5/5

Design: Grey contact lenses, they tend to be a bit more dramatic. These however are more subtle than most grey lenses you find. However, you can see in the second photo that they have a bit of the 'halo effect' around the edges when they are hit with strong lighting. Close up, you can see the pixelated edges which I'm not too fond of.
They have a diameter of 14.2mm which gives a subtle dolly eye effect which is perfect for special events or photos - 3.5/5  

Overall a very wearable pair of grey lenses but there are ones that blend much better and don't have the halo effect, such as Twinkle Eyes in Grege Grey (which are my all time favourite grey lenses). I will blog about those soon!

[TUTORIAL] Pastel Marble Pantone 2016 Gel Nail Design

I finally did it - my first nail tutorial is now up on YouTube! This design is really easy and one of my go-to's for a quick and easy gel manicure. I'm a huge pastel lover so I prefer this over the normal white/black marble design.

It was a bit of a struggle to figure out how to film and edit in just a few days but this is now another thing crossed off my list!

I hope this will be a helpful video for everyone :)

[GEL NAILS] Rose Quartz and Serenity Marble Nail Art

I'm so in love with the Pantone colors this year. I've gotten so many sweaters and dresses in both rose quartz and serenity - just look at the knit I'm wearing in these photos :p

Marble designs are so easy to do with gel polishes so they have been my go to for a simple manicure. I decided to bling out my accent finger as usual!

I will also be making an attempt to try and film a gel nail tutorial! I feel like there isn't too many around on YouTube for English viewers. I'll keep everyone posted if I do manage to film something :p

[OUTFIT] Little Red Beret

Outfit Details - Trinity Styles || Denim Jacket || Bag || Beret

The weather is finally warming up here in Vancouver! I've been dying to wear some spring pieces. I love sweater weather but it's been too long since I left the house without putting on a pair of leggings or tights beneath my dresses/skirts! If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen the eye catching red beret in a few snaps along with the super cute kitty cat bag. I'm quite the hat person :p
