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!

Weekend Update: Go-To Summer Makeup

Monday, 26 May 2014

Quite Frankly, my makeup looks don't change that much between Winter and Summer, I stick to BB creams, maybe switch up bolder reds for bolder pink lips, add pops of colour that are brighter, you know.

However, as I'm getting closer to my University Convocation (I'm still feeling so weird about it, me, having a degree, what?) I'm playing with neutral eyes and bolder spring appropriate lips and finding myself creating the same look over and over again, and changing just the lips.

This is my go to look for a more neutral everyday thing.

To achieve this look I used:
1. Hang Ten SPF 50 Sunscreen
2. L'Oreal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB cream (Light)
3. Maybelline Baby Skin Primer (This should be before 2, but math.)
4. Rimmel London Wake Me Up Concealer (Very Fair)
5. Rimmel London Stay Matte Powder (Transparent) 
6. ELF HD Undereye Setting Powder 
7. Milani Brow Fix Kit (Light)
8. ELF Studio Blush (Twinkle Pink)
9. Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer (Medium/Deep) 

1. Maybelline Colour Tattoo (Barely Branded)
2. NYX Matte Eyeshadow (Blame it on Midnight)
3. Urban Decay Naked Palette 
4. Physicians Formula Khol Kajal (Black)
5. Physicians Formula Khol Kajal (Champagne) 
6. L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Butterfly (Black)
7.  Revlon Lip Butter (Wild Watermelon)
