#younique mascara worth the hype?

image

I recieved Younique mascara as a Christmas gift from my lovely girlfriend Melanie, and was pleasantly surprised by the results. My right eye is regular mascara and left is younique. Obviously, a noticeable difference.

The product is a 2 wand process- transplanting gel and fibers. It’s a bit tricky at first but I finally perfected the application on my 3rd try. Apply regular mascara to establish a base, then transplant gel- let it set for 30 sec or so then apply fibers, slowly, wiggle at base and work up the lash, then reapply gel in a curling motion. Then brush through with lash brush to seperate lashes. Voila!

I had seen many claims how great it is on IG but all those people are selling the product. I researched on makeupalley.com and saw mixed reviews. Overall it is great for evening, a bit much for daytime. I wouldn’t say it replaces false lashes as some claims but it does really work. If you already spend money on brand mascara give this a try!

Holiday Party Cardi OOTD

As party season kicks into full gear, there are many events with varying degrees of dress codes. When in doubt, better to be over dressed than under dressed.

Here’s a middle of the road look that is cute and dressy-casual. Embellished cardi and tee strikes a casual cord while the flirty skirt, feather bag n’ heels dress it up, while keeping a balanced look that’s fun and festive.

You could wear tights or bare legs dependant on your climate.

Going out this weekend? Ready to sip eggnog and look cute….but need some outfit inspo that doesn’t involve a sparkly dress or red lipstick? Try something like this, the black fur vest and oversized fedora elevate the look of a simple magenta blouse and faux leather pants from average to amazing!

You could swap out the over the knee boots for shorter boots or heels depending on your climate. Happy Holidays!! 🎅⛄🎄🌟❄

‘Tis the Season- To Wear a Dress

image

I am all about dresses; due to my hourglass shape, I look best in dresses so wear them often. I know many dread wearing dresses and find getting dressed for the holidays a challenge. So you stick with the same old LBD or basic black trousers and sweater. Ugh…a style rut. Get festive and try something new! Dresses don’t always have to be dressy.

Here’s a not so basic black dress that can be dressed up or down according to your events. One dress, 2 looks.

Look 1- the above pic is how I would dress for Christmas Eve for dinner and mass.

Dress- Nylon 76

Look 2- the below could be a casual day look for Boxing day shopping or casual lunch with friends.

Dress- Nylon 76
Boots- Ralph Lauren
Bag- H&M

The weather here in Canada’s can really put a damper on your creativity with outfits, but you can still look cute and stay warm! Try this sweet drop waist textured mini with a sassy tee and cardi. You could pair with tights but the over the knee socks take it to the next level.
