I have been enjoying filling in my eyebrows to give them more shape and dimension. I use either the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz or the NYX Micro Brow Pencil. Both are high quality products I absolutely love, so I thought I would write a quick comparison on the two.


Naturally, this was the first product I decided to try out when diving into the world of brows. I was instantly in love with how it allowed me to easily create a defined shape as well as a fuller, natural effect. It glides on easily and has a creamy consistency. I don’t find that it is completely buildable, but if you are going for more of a natural look, or just looking to add some depth to your already full brows, it is perfect. It has a retractable fine tip with a spooly on one end. I did have some issues with the pencil breaking off quite easily, which is a bit upsetting considering it is $27. This is definitely a high-end product but I have found myself purchasing it time and time again because it really is a great product!



I have heard a lot of great things about the NYX Micro Brow Pencil, and had to try it out when I saw the price. I absolutely love it and found myself reaching for this rather than my Brow Wiz, which was quite surprising! It is highly pigmented and requires a light hand to apply. It has sort of a waxy consistency but still allows for a creamy application. It has a retractable fine tip identical to the Brow Wiz allowing for a precise application. I found that the pencil was a lot stronger than the Brow Wiz. It did not ever break during application, which really shows the quality of the product for such an inexpensive price. I do however wish the spooly was a tad bit thinner like the Brow Wiz. Of course this is a great drugstore steal for only $12!

Overall, both these products are worth trying out. They are great for defining and filling in the brows, and definitely last all day long once set with a brow gel. It’s really about what you’re budget is. Because I fill in my brows everyday, I prefer to use the NYX Micro Brow pencil to save a couple of bucks. On those days where I am going out to a special event I opt for the ABH Brow wiz. Nonetheless, both are great products!

It’s finally spring! It’s still a bit chilly here in Toronto, but I found incorporating bold colours into my makeup has definitely been putting me in the spring mood. Here are 3 simple ways to add a pop of colour to your makeup, to give you that fun and flirty look!


popofcolour_03 Wearing a bold lip has to be one of my favourite ways to take a simple look and kick it up a notch. There are a ton of vibrant colours on the market right now that certainly shout spring! I absolutely adore the Kat VonD Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Ayesha. It is a beautiful, soft lavender that I have been obsessed with. If this colour is a bit out of your comfort zone, don’t worry because there are plenty more colours to choose from!


popofcolour_01I was thrilled to see a bunch of brands coming out with coloured liners. It’s such a simple way to take your everyday winged liner to another level. For the look below, I used the NYX Vivid Brights Liquid Liner in Sapphire Blue to add a pop of colour to top of my black wing. This added a playful element to an otherwise classic look. You can definitely skip the black liner and apply a coloured liner on its own. It’s such a fun and simple way to change things up. I am loving this trend!

TIP: To maximize your products, use your liquid lipstick as eyeliner. It works just the same!


popofcolour_02You can either use a shadow or a pencil to achieve this look. Just line and smudge the colour on your lower lash line. You don’t have to be neat or precise, but it will look great every time. I used a teal shadow from the Morphe 35U Palette to create this look. You can even take it into the inner corner for some extra dimension; it’s completely up to you! This has to be the fastest and easiest way to pack a punch with your look this spring.

These are 3 effortless ways to add a pop of colour to your makeup. They take no time at all and can completely transform your look in a matter of minutes. Let me know if you guys try any of these techniques!
