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!


Just a general disclaimer:

I am not a professional makeup artist, I am completely self taught, any posts on beauty products are purely personal opinion and should not be taken as fact.

The final return to blogging post.

Monday, 10 August 2015

I'm baaack, back again, this time I promise it will stick. I've been recovering from surgery and figuring out how I am going to do this blogging thing. It's been hot in Ontario, not as hot as it could be, but there have been some really hot days. A couple of weeks ago I went to the Toronto Blue Jays game and it was so hot that it was almost impossible for my arms to touch my legs (sticky hot man). But my face stayed perfect, and it stayed this way because of a new product in my current rotation (an updated rotation post is in the works!)

Amie sent me this (Morning Dew Matte Finish Moisturizer) product for consideration as I have been such a large fan of their other products (I used their makeup wipes and their two in one cleanser and toner  have been on my night stand while I have been recovering).

What I like about this product (as with all of their other ones) is that it doesn't aggravate my very sensitive skin. Having ingredients like natural plant sugars, rosehip and bilberry really work to not only do their job, but because it isn't filled with plenty of chemicals etc. really make me a happy skin customer.

Immediately after washing my face in the morning (usually with the two in one cleanser/toner) I use this moisturizer, it goes on smoothly, and feels almost tacky to begin with (which makes an excellent base for makeup). On days like the saturday I went to the Toronto Blue Jays where temperatures were well into the 30 degree mark reaching almost 40 with the humidity, I never really worried that my face looked oily. In that extreme of heat, I was a little sweaty, but not oily like middle of the day and I have to retouch my makeup because it's breaking down oily.

Another thing I love about Amie products is that the colour of the product matches the pastel colour of the packaging!
