What's On My iPhone?

I wouldn't consider myself a nosy person, but when it comes to iPhones, I'm always curious about which apps people have on theirs. So for anybody who wants to take a peak into mine, this one's for you. Though I must warn you, you may be left very underwhelmed with what I keep on here.

An Ode To The Beautyblender

If someone were to ask me if there was a single (yes, just one) beauty product I could not live without, I would say the beautyblender without hesitation. I really can't remember the last time I was without one and frankly..I don't want to remember.

#TwoToneInToronto | Laneige Two Tone Lipsticks

The other day, I attended a party held by Laneige to celebrate their new Two Tone Lipsticks in Toronto. The event was held in a beautiful space and the whole evening was more elegant than I could ever imagine. I went with one of my best friends; to say that we were swooning all night is an understatement.

Five Faves | NARS

I'm back with another instalment of my Five Faves series. This time I'll be talking about NARS Cosmetics. It's a brand I've always admired, especially for their packaging. Their simple black packaging always seemed so luxe to me. A vanity full of only their makeup is surely a minimalist's dream. But not only are their packaging luxe, but so are their products. Everything I've tried from them so far have not let me down and instead wow'd me every time. Here are my top picks from them:

The Urban Decay Naked Palette Showdown

Nobody could deny the amazing-ness of the Urban Decay Naked Palettes. I'm pretty sure that the first one they came out with was my first high end eyeshadow palette I added to my collection. It was so good that over the years, I ended up picking out the next two they released. I don't regret these purchases at all because they're all so pretty. But to someone just starting their makeup collection or on a budget, do you really need all three? Probably not. So which one is the best to pick up? Let's find out:

The No-Makeup Makeup Edit

Even though I mentioned in my May Goals that I would start playing with makeup more, I can't deny my love for minimal makeup at the moment. It's pretty much a look I've been wearing a ton, especially when my dad wants to make spur-of-the-moment plans to go out & wants to leave the house asap. Not only do I like this look because it's easy & fast to do (literally 10 minutes or less), but it's also a look that enhances natural beauty instead of hiding it.
