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!

All About that Base

Monday, 9 February 2015

I am a low maintenance face kinda gal, I prefer to spend the majority of my makeup time focusing on my eyeshadow and eyebrows those things are liiight on me and since I have been blessed with a relatively clear balanced complexion I really don't need much coverage, except under my eyes.

Sephora CC Eye Cream and Concealer I picked this up while christmas shopping in December. I believe it is a one shade fits all, and the concealing abilities are not fantastic but I use this primarily as an eye cream and primer for my concealer. I use this under my eyes and bring it up to my inner corner because of a birthmark.

Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser I use this as a cheaper alternative to the Benefit Porefessional. I use this on my nose and in-between my eyebrows where my pores are more visible, as well as on whatever spots I have to prime before concealer.

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser Like every other blogger out there I love this stuff. I really like the sponge tip applicator which disperses the product nicely. I put some on my finger to use on spots to prevent bacteria, overall I really like this stuff.

Too Faced Cocoa Powder Foundation I've mentioned this stuff a lot in the past couple of weeks, but I really like it, it isn't very full coverage which is perfect for me because I like my natural skin to show through. The smell is amazing not going to like it's my favourite part of this collection! 

Benefit Watts Up Highlighter I found this in my collection recently, and can't believe I let it go missing! It is a champagne highlight, which along with the creaminess of the product give a really natural glow to the face. I use this on the tops of my cheeks, down my nose and cupids bow, and when I run out of this sample size I will for sure be repurchasing the full size.
