Face of the Day

I thought I’d share some new and new-ish products I’ve been LOVING lately, and that might be especially great coming into Spring/Summer.

Brittany Face of the Day


My FOTD – laughing at my husband goofing off! A very natural look since it’s the weekend, but still fun in my opinion 😉

Cargo, Maybelline, The Balm, Bare Minerals


I’ll start with my most recent purchase Cabana Boy by The Balm! Picked it up from London Drugs for 30% off and love love LOVE it!

The Balm BlushI

I think this colour really lends itself to the Radiant Orchid Pantone obsession of 2014. A very purply pink blush with a real sheen to it. VERY pigmented, would look gorgeous on a range of skin tones.

Maybelline Sahara Storm Lipstick

Next most recent is this Maybelline Buffs collections lipstick in Stormy Sahara. This is normally not a lipcolour I would gravitate to, but ItsJudyTime gave this particular shade a big thumbs up – and it looked great on her to boot! So far I love it when I mute out my natural lipcolour with a nude lipliner or concealer.

Cargo Vintage Escape


This is the Cargo Cosmetics Vintage Escape Palette, I snapped this up at Kohl’s last time I was in Seattle. Tati of GlamLifeGuru raaavveedd about this but I just didn’t want to spend the $50ish that it cost in Canada… but for $39 in the states I was sold. The range of colours really lend towards fall/winter looks but I think I’ll get loads of use out of this year round. 10/10, definitely pick this up if you see it!

Bare Minerals Foundation


Last but not least is my Bare Minerals pressed Foundation in Medium Beige. I was a little cautious of this since my skin is normal to dry… but once I tried it I was hooked! Buildable coverage, beautiful satin finish, excellent colour match (for you warm toned/yellow people out there THIS IS THE BOMB), looks amazing in photos (proof above)… I could go on and on.

And that concludes this FOTD! Hope you enjoyed, be sure to share what you’ve been loving for your more relaxed make-up days!
