With Fall finally here I wanted to share with all my readers some of my favourite Nude polishes that I will be wearing this season. Nude Polishes have been a hit this season as well as last season. There is nothing like a great nude polish. It looks so chic and it makes your nails look longer and fingers look similar. I’m all for slim fingers. Anyway it was hard to choose my top 5 colours so I narrowed down my choices based on how they wore, how they applied, and how long they took to dry. All of my nude choices were also based on the undertone of the nude. I tried to select nudes that would be suitable for all skin tones in order for them to be flattering on the nails. All of the swatches done were done in two coats. As I mentioned before they didn’t take long to dry either.
Revlon’s Rose Beige– Is exactly what the name says its more of a rose pink nude that can be paired with just about anything.
Eva’s Nude– Is a yellow toned nude with a subtle shimmer that you can see in the bottle, however it would take more than two coats in application in order to pick up the shimmer
Greyt Expectations– is a cool grey toned nude. One of my faves and perfect for a night our manicure
Julianne’s Nude- is a deeper rose beige with a slight orange undertone
Doutzen’s Nude- is a cooler nude pinkish grey.
So that wraps up my favourite nude for the fall. I would love to know what some of yours are let me know in the comments below
I recently placed an order with Lime Crime after seeing the perfect “nude” colour for Fall. I am a lover of liquid lipsticks so I was very anxious to get my hands on Lime Crimes Velvetines. The colour I ordered is called Salem which is described as a Matte Chocolate brown. Being that I own alot of liquid lipsticks from various brands I know what I like and how I want them to feel. Salem was an exact dupe in regards to texture, dry time and smell from brands such as Stila’s stay all day lip colour, Kat Von D’s lip stains as well as Sephora’s lipstains. I really loved how this Velvetine applied. It lasted well over 6 hrs with eating and drinking before I touched up the inner part of my bottom lip and my lips did not feel dry in the least bit when I removed it 11hrs later. The removal process was super easy too. Although it was non-transferable when I removed it with a tissue it came off with such ease. Now because of the price $20.00 I’m not so sure I would purchase anymore only because I found it to be rather expensive for a stain that it not a “name brand” per say. However if there was ever a sale I would certainly scoop up quite a few. The shipping took almost 2 weeks only because I am in Canada, the plus side of that is I received a USPS tracking number so I was able to track where my parcel was.

Today I had a client come in to have her makeup done for her outdoor engagement photos. As you can see shes extremely beautiful and didn’t need alot of work to look glam. For her day to day makeup routine there isn’t much that she does ( she really doesn’t need to anyway) so we decided on a look that would just compliment her beautiful features. To complete her look I used Urban Decay’s Naked 1 and Lorac’s Pro Palette.
For complexion apply Make Up For Ever’s HD foundation the traditional way using a beauty blender sponge. As well I mixed up a custom lip colour to enhance her natural lip colour.

Over the summer I attended a Christmas in July event where a number of different items that will launch over the next few months were showcased. One of the launches that I was really excited for was from the tweezerman line. Now the world knows that Tweerzerman is known for the phenomenal performance of the tweezers. They will be launching their Brush IQ line in October, which is a line of 12 brushes that are crafted with patented technology and exceptional quality just like Tweezerman Tweezers.
The Tweezerman Brush IQ line is made with DuPont Filaments which feel like natural hair but perform better than Natural hair.
The 12 Brush IQ brushes within this line are
Finishing Contour Brush
- Flat top
- Foundation Brush
Line glider brush
I was sent the pointed concealer brush which is amazing for applying concealer precisely. I like to apply the concealer with this brush right at the outer corners of my eyes to cleaner up liner and make the cat eye look more exaggerated and perfect. The pointed concealer brush is also perfect for concealing hard to cover blemishes because I was able to apply concealer using the point of the brush where I am able to pack the product on without it looking cakey.
The brush itself is very sturdy and the bristles did shed at all during the first wash I definitely plan to pick up the rest of the line to add to my personal stash as well as my kit. the range price wise isn’t bad either. You can check out www.tweezerman.ca
for more info on the Brush IQ line. In the meantime I wanted to hold a giveaway for a pointed concealer brush just for one lucky person to experience how amazing the Brush IQ line is. As usual follow the instructions to enter. Good Luck
