If you read any of my beauty posts, read this one! Today I’m rounding up all my 2015 beauty favourites in one post. If you’ve been with me for awhile, you know I absolutely love makeup, playing with beauty products, and experimenting with different looks. Over the years I’ve tried pretty much everything — and I’m definitely very particular when it comes to what I use and like. These are the absolute best, cream-of-the-crop products that I think can work for anyone! I continue to use and recommend these products again and again — not only for myself, but for family and friends of all ages, ethnicities and skintones.
My 2015 Beauty Favourites are a mixture of drugstore and high end items, so there’s really something for everyone. This is a very comprehensive post — so set aside an hour, grab a notepad and a cocktail, and let’s dive into my 2015 Beauty Favourites!
December was a blur! Between preparing for holidays and then holidays themselves, December always seems to fly by so fast. Last month I traveled all over Alberta visiting family and friends, and definitely noticed myself reaching for the same products consistently. It was pretty simple for me to choose my December beauty favourites — I just had to look inside my travel makeup bag!
Last month I discovered a genius product that lightens foundation to suit winter skintones, my to-go holiday lip, a blush that gives you that ‘just in from the cold’ look, some really unique eyeshadows and long-wearing, affordable eyeliners! Curl up, get cozy and let’s chat about winter beauty!
November was a pretty low-key month for me, beauty wise. I discovered a few new products, but in colours that I know work for me. Otherwise, I’ve been sticking to what I know — which is what tends to happen when I’m super busy.
In November I got my glow on, rediscovered my signature winter scent, found a game changing pair of tweezers, an eyeshadow that makes simple smokey eyes a breeze, a no fuss nude lipstick for winter, and the most flattering liquid lipstick, ever! I also picked up a bunch of new products (yep… definitely took advantage of the Sephora VIB Sale!), so get ready for lots of holiday beauty posts, coming to JustineCelina soon!
October was truly a high-low month for beauty favourites! When it comes to beauty products (or anything, really) I don’t discriminate based on price — some $2 products work better than $100 products. Well, this month, I’ve been loving $2 lip liners, $3 cream eyeshadows, $3 nailpolish, a $4 dry shampoo, and a $95 face palette! So when I recommend a product, know that it’s not just good for the price — it’s just good, period!
I’m sharing lots of beauty bargains with you this month, and my in-depth thoughts on the extremely spendy Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit palette. Also, an amazing $6 contouring palette, and the perfect matte, deep berry lip. Let’s chat about beauty bargains and splurges!
July was the month of lip products! I wore lots of different lip colours last month and generally kept things light on the eyes — one of my favourite summer looks is a bright lip with a simple eye and winger liner. Most of my favourite products last month were things that I’ve loved for a long time and rediscovered, or products I’ve rotated in for the summer because they contain SPF (try to get your SPF in wherever you can, ladies!).
I also stumbled on a couple of new products — one extremely beautiful highlighter, and a limited edition edition lipstick exclusively for Canadians that smells and tastes like Maple syrup! Cozy up with me on this stormy night in Calgary and let’s chat beauty!
Hey guys! Today I’m sharing April’s most loved beauty products. Overall, I was into cooler tones (which is strange for me!). Since I have warm colouring and green eyes, I tend to favour warm colours on both the eyes and lips — last month I gravitated towards purples and cooler neutrals overall. I also played around with lots of different eye looks, eyeliner and eyeshadow. Let’s chat beauty!
With Winter Solstice in the rear-view, it feels surreal to be publishing my final LOOKBOOK of the decade (isn’t that absolutely wild?!). After a seemingly never ending saga of snowstorms and chinooks over the past month as we approach the holiday season, I’m excited to share what I’ve been wearing during this festive time of year in my 6 outfit Autumn / Winter 2019 Lookbook! My sixth and final LOOKBOOK of 2019 spotlights practical and stylish outfits ideas for a variety of settings and events as we transition from late autumn into early winter here in Calgary. As always, it features my favourite outfit formulas and classic wardrobe staples — updated with fresh dose of seasonal trends!
If you’re looking for some FASHION inspiration to help you navigate through the holiday season and into a new decade in style, you’ve come to the right place! Today I’m dishing on my favourite winter trends, patterns, prints, colours (with an introduction to the Pantone 2020 Colour of the Year, Classic Blue!) materials and silhouettes, plus all my best styling tips to help you brave our harsh Canadian winters — and look absolutely fantastic doing it! As always, you can expect a melange of high, low, old, new and vintage in my Autumn / Winter 2019 Lookbook — as well as an onslaught of shoppable links at every price point and tips about how to curate accessible style on a budget, with an emphasis on quality, cold-weather fabrics!
