I am sure you have heard it time and time again, but damn this year flew by fast! The time has come to reflect on the year 2016 of the best beauty products I have come across and coveted. Everything I list is in consideration to my skin type: Acne-prone, dry and dehydrated.
With summer in full force, some of you might question the best way to do your makeup. It’s hot and can be humid at times. If you’re like me, your skin colour ranges a lot based on how much sun you may get on your days off. And a bonus to us acne-prone, our breakouts may be more inflamed.
This has been a personal feat of mine to try to find a way to get the most natural coverage in full light, while not having to buy multiple different shades to match my skin tone of the day. That’s when I finally discovered RMS Beauty.
RMS Beauty is a raw, natural, organic makeup line created by Rose Mary Swift – someone who’s been in the beauty industry for years and has had enough of the toxic, harmful ingredients in products.

Hey beautiful people,
Although it has been on and off sunny here in Toronto, the weather has still been quite depressing. We got a huge snowfall last week for crying out loud! Having said that, I thought I’d make a bright and fun look to counter-act the gloomy, cool weather we’re experiencing in Spring.
The Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner was the beginning of my inspiration, because I’ve been wanting to do a purple eye look to compliment hazel eyes for a while. I thought Tarte’s Tartelette “In Bloom” Palette would balance the eye liner perfectly, with their bright and warm colours. Obviously, this look isn’t excluded for the hazel-eyed individuals out there!
Here’s a step-by step guide of how I achieved this eye look, and the face products I used to compliment it. I’ll throw in my base as well, because this look was meant to be light all around.
Here is a round-up of beauty items and fashion pieces I’ve been liking a lot for the month of March. Some I purchased this month, others I have had for a while now, but have been using them a lot recently. Hope you enjoy the read!
