My name is Mikayla! I'm a 22 year old University Graduate with a passion for all things beauty. I stumbled into the online beauty community a year ago and have been obsessed with youtube videos and blogs ever since. After watching hundreds of videos over the past year I figured it was about time I joined the community and posted my own thoughts in my own little space. I'm also recently graduated, unemployed and headed for college in September.

I really enjoy all things beauty, and I really like telling my friends what I think about products so writing them down just felt natural. To me, make up isn't something that you wear to make yourself look prettier, it's something you do on yourself for yourself. It has the power to give you strength to tackle a rough day, the courage to find your inner confidence and sparkle like every girl is meant too.

Other than beauty, I love fashion. Beauty and Fashion are the keys to my heart, along with a great deal. I'm all about a decent deal, and budget shopping is my favourite.

I can't wait to start this journey with the internet and all of you!

Minty Green

Monday, 31 March 2014

If anyone knows me at all they know I love anything mint. Chocolate, candies, lipgloss, the colour I LOVE IT ALL! So when I was shopping last week and I stumbled across this lovely mint green blazer there wasn't a question I was buying it. 

Since Spring isn't completely making it's presence known yet in Ontario where I live, my wardrobe is in the uncertain state, torn between winter and spring. Today, it was a little warmer than it has been, so I pulled out my mint blazer to wear to my office job. I paired it with grey leggings and black booties (which are now covered in mud :(,) I added this gold necklace with a cross on it to tie it together, and I love the look.

For my makeup I broke out the Inglot Freedom System my mom and sister got me when they were in New York City last summer. I had never really found the perfect time to use the colours because to me they scream spring and summer, and I didn't actually get it until August. So this morning I thought perfect, a great time to bust it out and have some fun. 

I wanted to keep it simple, because of the look I was going for, so I used my maybelline Colour Tattoo in Barely Branded as a base and then used the light shade all over my lid with my sigma E55 brush. I took the orangey sunset kind of shade in my crease and I used the E.L.F Essential Blending Eye Brush (I cannot believe it was only a dollar!) and then this micabeauty blending brush to soften out any harsh lines. I got the brush in my ipsy bag two months ago. I then took the minty green colour and used it under my eyes, taking the sigma E65 brush and gradually went along the colours the further away from my inner corner. 

On my lips I'm wearing MAC's Viva Glam V. For me it's almost this perfect "you're lips but better" colour and for some reason I am obsessed with the scent of it. 

What colour makes you scream spring?

I love that mint green blazer... I am going crazy for mint green everything lately! And I totally agree about the MAC's Viva Glam, it's barely noticeable, it only enhances your lips!
