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!

Blogtober Day 1: September Favourites

Thursday, 2 October 2014

For my first official post of Blogtober I'm doing my September Favourites. September was a busy month for me, trying to figure out a system for school and settling in to school, so a lot of my favourites are really convenient.

My first favourite is a recent purchase, it's the Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara I hauled it here I really like how it gets all the lashes and really makes them stand out without getting any under my eyes. This is really great too to darken the base of the top lashes! 
My next favourite is the Bite Beauty Dual Luminous Creme Lipstick in Lychee (the lighter pink shade) and Musk (the darker shade). I've been layering these colours, wearing them individually, and relying on it a lot recently. 
My third favourite is the Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain in Barcelona Nights. While this product is being reviewed as pretty touch and go, I love it. It's moisturizing, and more of a really pigmented lip gloss, but I love it none the less, and use it all the time! I think it's a great starter for bolder colours in the fall. 
Reds seem to be a trend among my favourites, my fourth favourite is the Ciate Nail Polish  in Mistress. I got this as part of a set and hauled it here. I really like how it's a bright vibrant red and a great transitional colour as the seasons were really changing.  
My skin has been freaking out lately it's all those delayed teenage issues I swear so on the recommendation of one of my friends I picked this up it's the Clean and Clear Advantage Acne Spot Treatment , and have been using it almost daily as a spot treatment on the colony that seems to have landed on my chin. 
My makeup has been really simple recently something about waking up at 6 most days and I've been reaching for my Meet Matte palette (this one is no longer on thebalm.com's website :'(,) but the matte colours of this palette have been fantastic. 
My final favourite is the Lorac Pro Palette, I picked this up while on family vacation in Portland and I have loved every moment I have spent with this beauty. The colours are just so insanely pigmented and buttery and they blend so well, I can see what all the hype is about this one that's for sure. 

These are the products I've been loving for September, what are some of your favourites for September? Be sure to check back tomorrow for day 2 of Blogtober!
