Hi I'm Michelle! I'm a 23 year old residing and born in Toronto, ON Canada. I have grown a passion for beauty, cosmetics, and anything artistic since my teens. Oh, I also have a huge interest in cars, although you'd never really know (and it's probably thanks to my dad giving me hot wheels along with barbies to play with as a kid!) I decided to start blogging because I wanted to create an eye-catching space, where I could share my views and opinions, even if no one else agreed or wanted to read it. I had originally thought that I would just log my opinions on a blog, and if people want to read it, that is great. If people don't, then it's alright too! I had never thought I would join a community filled with such wonderful supporting people and talent and I am thankful for it every day.
I have combination skin - it is dry-sensitive. I love to test out new products, although I have to introduce new skincare very slowly. I also have hooded eyelids, the hardest type of eyes to work with eye make-up. You'd think that all of these concerns would deter me away from make-up, but it has made me love it more! It is an adventure every day, trying to find that perfect look that will work with my eye shape!
Redness in Winter.
Few post-acne marks/scars.
Can be acne-prone depending on diet and certain harsh products.
Clogged pores happen easily, ugh!
Best eyeshadow colours = neutrals, browns

Unless otherwise stated, all shadows are usually swatched over a primer because I find a lot of shadows show up poorly or don't swatch cleanly without a primer. Also because I always have to wear primer on my lids anyway.
