Favourite Bronzers

MissCaseyB >> 3/17/2015 >>
I've compiled some of my favourite budget and non-budget friendly favourite bronzers. It's been a long winter, but I just know the warmer weather is on its way! So here are some of my faves so you can be ready to go. 

Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Medium/Deep Matte Bronzer
My favourite everyday bronzer! This is the perfect Matte shade for my skin. The best part? It's actually infused with antioxidant cocoa! It smells like you're putting on a chocolate bar. The pigmentation in this bronzer is unmatched and so amazing. You need very little and the wear is also pretty great! C$38.00

Rimmel Waterproof Natural Bronzing Powder (Sunglight) 
This one is a budget friendly dupe for the Too Faced Chocolate bronzer - of course without the amazing aroma of cocoa infusion! It doesn't quite have the lasting power of the high end brands, which is to be expected, but for a budget friendly brozner, it does it's job. It's waterproof for summer and easy to blend and apply. $6.98

Annebelle Matte Zebra Biggy Bronzer (Matte Gold) 
This is one of the best budget friendly, high end quality bronzers available. It even won the 2014 Elle Canada Award for Best Bronzer Under $30! It has three perfectly chosen shades that are coordinated to create a natural summertime glow. Perfume free and hypo-allergenic so its great for all skin types.  C$11.95

Mac Sculpting Powder Pro Palette (Shadester) 

With a Sheer Matte finish this is an amazing product that enhances the natural bone structure. The formula is soft and smooth and blends perfectly - key for contouring! It also lasts forever so touch-ups are not necessary - key for my bridal clients! C$20.50

Spring Must Have's from Annabelle Cosmetics

MissCaseyB >> 3/02/2015 >>
Just in, some new goodies from the Spring Collection from Annabelle cosmetics! I am seriously loving the products that I am seeing coming out this Spring and it is a nice reminder that Spring, is in fact, coming! #WinterCantLastForever

Starting out with my new favourite blush, Hibiscus. This could easily be a dupe, and more budget friendly option for Nars Orgasm. Peachy and pearly, it is the perfect hue for a natural flush. I am definitely going to be including this in my kit for my upcoming Spring weddings! 

Next up are two of the new Lipsies lip balm in Lychee and Cherry. These easy-to-use retractable crayon style lip balms come in 12 fruity scents. They are super moisturizing and non-sticky. Their sheer formula offers a nice lightweight feel. **I love to layer these over a lipstick for some extra moisturizing!

Last but not least is a perfect bronzer for the warmer months! I love the Biggy Zebra Bronzers from Annabelle this one is in Matte Gold. (This bronzer actually won the 2014 Elle Canada award for best bronzer under $30!) All the colours accentuate each other and the matte formula even helps ensure it looks the most natural.

MAC Rose is a Rose Quad [Swatches]

MissCaseyB >> 2/05/2015 >>

I recently got my hands on this gorgeous quad from MAC Cosmetics. I currently don't own any of these shadows so I knew picking up this quad was definitely a good investment. I'm loving this quad for soft, romantic looks and think it will make the perfect addition to my kit! 

The colour combinations and looks to create are endless! It might not look it, but you have all you need here to make perfect everyday wearable looks, romantic elegant looks, and date night-girls night hangout looks. 

Solar White (Frost) - A beautiful butter toned shadow that is perfect for highlighting and applying to the inner corners to brighten up a look. 

Seeds of Love (Frost) - A stunning coral shade that is perfect for a romantic look! This shade will definitely bring warmth to the skin and be perfect for Spring, Summer and Fall! 

Petal Worship (Lustre) - I am generally not a fan of Lustre shadows but this one is just such a pretty shade of purple pink that I can let it slide! 

Contrast (Velvet) - I thought a navy blue was a weird addition to this quad, but I am actually loving the depth it adds to any look!
