A few weeks ago while stalking Kim Kardashian’s Instagram account, I came across a pic she posted of the best blue smoky eye I’d ever seen. As I’m obsessed with the smoky eye look right now, I took a screenshot of it and promised myself to book a makeup application with my favourite makeup artist, Anthonia Bejide, to learn how to do this. Well, Anthonia’s ears must have been burning because she messaged me a few days after I found Kim Kardashian’s picture and invited me to the MAC Cosmetics Haute Dogs Event at The Hudson’s Bay Company. Giddy up! Continue reading MAC Cosmetics Haute Dogs Event: Blue Smoky Eye Fabulousness
Following up on yesterday’s post Skin Destroyers: Avoid These Pitfalls, I thought I would post some skincare rules we should all be following. As a former esthetician, I’ve seen it all. From people with red, angry skin from leaving harsh face masques on too long, to those with serious scarring from picking at acne relentlessly, skin care is something everyone should fully understand.
As we take care of ourselves by hydrating properly with lots of water and eating nutritious food to keep us healthy and energized, we can boost the positive effects of these practices by taking a few steps to baby and protect our skin. It’s natural to want to pick at a huge pimple in desperation, hoping that squeezing it to death will miraculously make it disappear. It’s also understandable to want to discover that miracle skin scream that will reverse the “ravages of time” and bestow an Adriana Lima-like glow upon us. I think it’s best to just embrace the skin your in and work with what you have. Armed with knowledge, you can indeed transform lacklustre skin into something you’re proud of. Read on for more details! Continue reading Seven of the Best Skincare Rules to Follow
Ok. I’m officially obsessed with skin care. Maybe it’s because I’ve reached a certain age and I find my dark circles now refuse to go away, and I am getting tiny moles everywhere thanks to being a self-proclaimed sun worshipper. One of my New Year’s Resolutions was to take much better care of my skin. I thought that may be easier to attain and make me happier than the usual “Spend Less”, “Exercise More”, “Drink Less”, “Buy a Chanel Bag” and “Buy More Shoes” resolutions that I make year after year. Here is my list of skin no-nos, things that most of us all do on a daily basis that causes us not to reach our full JLo-like, glowy potential. Continue reading Skin Destroyers: Avoid These Pitfalls

This winter was “way harsh, Tai.” Sorry. Just watched Clueless…
My skin was ravaged from the winter dryness and indoor heating. While I have oily skin, my face always felt like it was going to crack, which eventually resulted in breakouts. I hate nothing more that freaking breakouts. I had to take action. Continue reading Style Domination Beauty Review: Dermalogica Active Moist Moisturizer
The other day, my friend Vanessa and I popped into Sephora as she needed some new foundation. I tagged along to scope out some new products and I’m glad I did! That visit proved truly educational! Now, I find shopping for foundation extremely daunting. There must be a million options out there, further complicated by the fact that I am a woman of colour, and finding that perfect match is near impossible.

I wanted to review this lip balm for all of you because it has become a staple in my daily routine.
On a trip to Sephora to re-up on some favourites, I got sucked into the display of impulse purchase offerings at the cash register. This Jack Black lip balm was one of them. It was the dead of winter and my lips rivalled sandpaper, so at $8 I thought – what the hell. Let’s give her a whirl. Continue reading SD Beauty Review: Jack Black Moisture Therapy Lip Balm in Lemon
