About


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.

About My Skin:
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!

Skin Type:
Sensitive, Combination.
Redness in Winter.
Few post-acne marks/scars.
Can be acne-prone depending on diet and certain harsh products.
Clogged pores happen easily, ugh!

Eyes: 
Hooded eyelids.
Best eyeshadow colours = neutrals, browns

Foundation Matches: Best matches are starred(*)
(I have yellow/neutral undertones that seem to be so hard to match!)
  • *Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation: 52 Vanilla
  • Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous: 115 (summer), 120 (A bit pinky/dark)
  • Dior Nude Skin Glowing Makeup: 021 Linen (Too dark, need to mix with lighter FD)
  • *Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation: 1W2 Sand (Pretty perfect match)
  • L'Oreal True Match: W2 (Too light, need to mix with W3)
  • MAC Pro LongWear: NC20
  • Make Up For Ever HD Foundation: 117 Marble, 120 Soft Sand (summer)
  • Marc Jacobs Remarcable Foundation: 12 Ivory (for winter)
Self Tanner: I currently use Fake Bake Flawless Self-Tan Liquid St. Tropez Self Tanner on my body twice a week, Clarins Golden Glow Booster every few days on the face. I am naturally even paler than I look.

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.
