Current Makeup Favourites

Two to try from Make Up For Ever and Smashbox
It's been a while since I last came across any makeup bits that had me doing mental cartwheels— save for the discovery of my now-favourite liquid lipstick— but these two have recently earned themselves favourite status, so I figured it was time to show and tell. Who knows, maybe one of these (or let's be real, both) will end up on your must-have lists as well... here goes.

Make Up For Ever Water Blend Face & Body Foundation— This is the most interesting foundation I've tried in a long time; the consistency truly is water-like, but the coverage is anything but. It glides on and easily blends into the skin for a nice sheer, but totally buildable coverage, and it has a dewy finish that wears really well throughout the day. Oh, and did I mention that it's formulated to hydrate and improve your skin's elasticity? Yeah, true story. It's what I've been reaching for most days, and I don't see that changing anytime soon. Also of note, this foundation is suitable for all skin types and is available in 20 shades for $54 CAD a pop. All in all, totally worth a try if you're feeling spendy.

Smashbox Indecent Exposure Mascara— If you're a fan of long, fluttery lashes, look no further than this one from Smashbox ($28 CAD). The effect this slim brush gives is ridiculous, and I'm always amazed by how long my lashes look after applying it, but if you're after volume, this one might not be for you— just a heads up. Another thing to be aware of is that the wand handle is velvet (random, I know), so if that texture gives you the no feeling then this mascara is also probably a no-go. Otherwise, I say it's infinitely worth a try (*hundred per cent emoji*). xx
