Blusher & Highlighter Collection 

So, with posts about skincare, lipstick, and all things beauty, it can’t come as a surprise to hear that I am a big fan of blusher and highlighter too. I am! I am!

Because of my skin tone, and because I prefer a bare or natural with lipstick look, I don’t wear blusher or highlighter every day. When I wear a blusher or highligher, together or seperately, I pick a colour that compliments my lipstick and my eyeshadow. It’s like that for me.

My collection is medium sized: I have a manageable number of blushers, perhaps more than average, and I have only a few highlighters. It is absolutely a collection that I feel is complete.

As you can see in the picture, I currently keep all of my blushers and highlighters in an open square container. It keeps everything contained, and when my powders get dusty (I do favour powder blushers and highlighters over liquid or cream) they don’t spill everywhere.

Look on to see my collection…

Highlighters L-R: Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector (pressed) in Topaz, Covergirl Cheekers Bronzer in Golden Tan

Shiseido Face Colour Enhancing Trio in RS1

Illamasqua Powder Blusher in Lover

Nars Blusher L-R: Lovejoy, Torrid, and Exhibit A

Nars Blusher L-R: Outlaw, and Amour

And that’s my collection!

You may have heard about how much I love lipstick.

Lately, new lipsticks have given the older ones an old shove in the save for later box. The box that I sometimes forget about when I’m smack dab in the middle of a lipstick roll. The reds, pinks, oranges, reds, pinks, oranges….

These are my current favourite Autumn/W—– lipsticks:

St. Lawrence Market & The Australian Connection

I met up with a friend (named Ivana and her friend Rachel) who visited Toronto as part of a glorious round trip tour of U.S. and Canada. Ivana and her friend are two lovely Aussie ladies who, although I didn’t have a lot of time, I had plenty of fun with!

We hit up St. Lawrence Market, the number one food and goods market in the world – according to the very astute National Geographic, and we ate our way through various sample cheeses, pretzels and Canadian mustard, and, of course, glorious Canadian Peller Estates wine.
