Fall is officially here and while I am a die-hard summer girl, I do love changing up my makeup game for fall. One of my favorite looks for both myself and my clients, is a neutral eye and bold lip. Studies have been done into colors and lipstick, particularly red. Bold colors are said to make people feel more alert which means a bold lip is a great idea when you are speaking in front of a group of people or have a big presentation at work!
I am wearing Buxom Plump Liner in Mystery. This is my go to lipstick. It is a lip liner and lipstick all in one. Matte, long wearing, and comfortable on my lips. They come in a variety of shades and it will be a staple for all my fall makeup looks. Tell me your favorite fall lip colors and brands in the comments below!

With summer coming to an end, i’m craving Spring ’18 already! Peep below for a few images from one of my favorite designers that stood out to me at VFW . Charly Thorn is just an 18 year old Australian designer and her pieces are beautiful. The teal coloured fabric is 100% Australian Merino Wool, the transparent fabric is 100% silk, and the print is 100% linen. Can’t wait to show you all more pieces from the collection. In the meantime, check out Charly Thorn and swoon over some of her beautiful SS’18 collection. #womanwhosupporteachother
Vancouver Fashion Week has been a staple in Vancouver since 2001. Ever evolving – just like fashion – this year’s opening gala (and also the full 7 day show) was held at the Chinese Cultural Centre in Chinatown on September 18th, 2017. This venue lent a hand to the gritty feel of the show – very much Sex in the City circa 1999.
The crowd was plentiful and varied, just the way a fashion show should be. Redken was on hand offering hair touch ups to show goers before they could head to Republic nightclub for the afterparty.
My personal favorite was Charly Thorn. She is an 18 year old Australian designer who made me crave Spring ’18 already! At such a young age she is sure to continue to grow and produce amazing fashion in the years to come. One piece in particular stood out to me. This structured beach suit. Not only the shape but the pattern had me begging to see more. The entire aesthetic of her show had me feeling I could move to an island and live there forever.
Aiki District had a much more laid back and simplistic feel. The neutral colors and unstructured cuts worked so well with the fabrics chosen. Any piece could work alone but also be given your own spin with the right accessories and styling.
I have now tried three products from the line and plan on trying them ALL. I’ve seen a lot of reviews about the products and some are utterly obsessed while others criticize the brand. I absolutely LOVE the products I’ve used so far. The foundation is brilliant, comes in 40 shades for any and every skin tone. It’s full coverage and semi matte. Can add as little as you want to achieve sheer-medium coverage. I use less than a pump on my entire face and love the results. A lot of people say that the foundation oxidizes…. well it doesn’t. When color swatching, leave the foundation on for 1 minute before committing to the color. It typically takes 1 minute to see the true tone . It lasts all day and the color does not change.
Now on to the killawatt higlighters…. if you don’t have one already, go and get one asap. They are magical and don’t add texture to the skin. Below are photos wearing the products. Check out my IG for more upcoming photos, in the meantime, go ahead and check out the line and let me know what you think. xo
