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!

Shop My Stash: Benefit Watts Up Highlighter

Monday, 12 January 2015

This year, one of my goals resolutions are cliched is to spend less on makeup and make more of an effort to go through the things that I have. My love of makeup has resulted in over the last couple of years accumulating a whole bunch of makeup. As an effort to do this, I'm going to be doing a weekly series of Shopping My Stash, where I discover a hidden find and truly decide if I like it, or if it's just taking up space in which case I will purge it. 

This weeks re-discovered product is Benefit Watts Up Cream Highlighter I do not remember where I got this, but it's been in my collection for a while, and I love it. I'm slowly falling more and more in love with Benefit as a brand I actually accidentally left this in Vancouver, so while I was home for the holidays I found it, and re-discovered my love. 

It goes on really smooth, and as a champagne highlighter it isn't over bearing, and it's not rocket science to use it either. I use this to highlight above my cheek bones, down the centre of my nose and on my cupids bow and it blends wonderfully. 

I do really like this highlighter, and I love that it is subtle and not overly dramatic you could build it up if you wanted too. This guy is a keeper in the collection! 

What are your favourite re-discovered products that you've found in your collection?

You should start doing empties posts... I just recently did one (at the end of December).. I'm going to continue doing them too. I find they help me finish up products. My bathroom is full of half used products lol
