Hello beautiful people! I hope you all had a wonderful week!
As some of you may know from my previous post last Saturday (July 26th) was my 23rd birthday! It was a really incredible weekend full of family and friends and definitely made me appreciate the amazing people that I have in my life. Saturday night I went out to a pub here in Toronto called Paupers with a few friends and had some drinks and food and a lot of laughs! I thought I’d do a post about the outfit I wore and the make-up I used!
Unfortunately in all my excitement with it being my birthday and all I completely forgot to get someone to take a photo of just me and my outfit! (I know, so bad I’m sorry!) So I just have this one of me and Carmen, but I took a photo of everything all laid out for you guys so you could see them a little more closely as well.
I wore a peplum top from Anthropologie which I got on sale for $30! I love this top because it’s a soft fabric and the bottom is scalloped which I think is really cute and feminine, I also love that it has a little peep hole in the back adding a little bit of sexiness to the top. Again so sorry I didn’t take better photos of me in the clothes!
I wore dark skinny jeans from American Eagle ($49.99) which are super comfortable and also super flattering
and finally I wore blue Jeffery Campbell heels which I bought on sale last summer but I can’t remember exactly how much I paid for them. I love these shoes, they’re not so high that I’m going to snap an ankle but they’re high enough that I still feel flirty and cute when I wear them and I adore the fact that they’re blue.
My purse is just a brown little bag I bought from ALDO a million years ago; I wanted to use this because it actually zips up and also because it’s small and easy to carry around. I know it doesn’t match my outfit but it’s also the kind of bag I can toss around and not be worried because it’s so old and well loved.
For make-up I really wanted to do something a little bit smokey but with some colour so I used my brand new Naked 3 palette which I bought myself as an early birthday gift (woops) I used a lot of the colours, really building them up and creating the look I really wanted to achieve and I was super happy with how it came out.
Foundation : Estee Lauder Double Wear in 1C1 Cool Bone
concealer : NARS radiant creamy concealer in Chantilly
Brows: MAC Omega
Primer: Urban Decay primer potion
Eye shadows: From the Urban Decay Naked 3
Buzz all over the lid
Limit through the crease and outer corner
nooner over top of Limit to add a little more depth to the colour
Factory concentrated to the outer corner
blackheart over top of factory and under the eye
Eye liner: Kat Von D tattoo liner at the lash line to add definition
Mascara: Maybelline pumped up colossal volume express
powder : Rimmel stay matte
bronzer: Too faced Chocolate bronzer in Milk chocolate, I used this to contour and around the hair line to add definition to my face
Blush: NARS seduction, I used this on the apples to add a little colour to my cheeks
Highlighter: MAC mineralized skin finish in lightscapade, I used this on the tops of my cheek bones
lipstick: BITE beauty custom colour, I made this when Sephora had a event where you could pick your colour, finish and scent. Mine is a really pale baby pink, it’s matte and it smells like cherrys
That’s everything I wore for my birthday night out! I had the best time and it was all thanks to the great people who came out to celebrate with me! I hope this gives some of you inspiration to use some of these products or even recreate this look for your birthday or any night out!
leave me a comment letting me know what you thought of the look or if you have thoughts on any of the products!

Hello beautiful people!
I hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend and got up to some super fun things!
Right now in Toronto there’s a thing called summerlicious going on! Restaurants have three course lunches and dinners on for super cheap, it’s a good chance to try out new places and new foods. Carmen and I decided to make a date night out of it on Friday, so we picked a restaurant off the summerlicious list and had an awesome dinner at Milestones which I wouldn’t have normally picked, but I was really impressed!
Since Friday was a date night I figured I’d do a little post about my outfit and make up for the night!
It was pretty hot on Friday so I decided to go with a striped cotton dress that I picked up at Target a few weeks ago, I think it was around 30$, my necklace is from Urban Outfitter and it was about $20, my sandals are from DSW, I picked them up in Cleveland last summer and I think they were $50. My purse is vintage I got it at Black Market and it was $10. I really wanted to keep my outfit simple and fun, not to mention comfortable (and a little stretchy) since we ended up eating a TON of food.
I wanted my make-up look to be a little smoky but nothing too dramatic!
Foundation : Estee lauder double wear in 1C1 cool bone ($45), I just buffed this all over my skin
Concealer: NARS radiant creamy concealer in Chantilly ($32), I used this on any blemishes and under my eyes
Brows: I use Omega eye shadow ($19) from MAC and apply it with a MAC 266 brush ($22)
eye lid primer : Urban decay primer potion ($22)
eye shadow : Naked 2 palette ($62) I used bootycall all over the lid, and snakebite thought the crease and outer corner, and I used black out along the lash line to add some definition.
mascara: Maybelline pumped up collosal volume express ($7) , Clinique bottom lash mascara ($12)
Powder : RImmel stay matte ($5) I used this through my t-zone to get rid of some shine
bronzer & highlighter: Sleek contour kit ($10) I used the bronzer on the high pointed of my face to add a sun kissed look and added the highlighter to the tops of my cheek bones
blush: Marc Jacobs blush in Promiscuous ($36) I used this on the apples of my cheeks
That’s everything I wore and used on my date night with Carmen! Let me know in the comments what you got up to this weekend or some of your favourite products for a date! Don’t forget to hit all the good buttons and I hope you all have a wonderful week!
