Hey everyone! I’ve been doing a lot of research on Canadian beauty brands lately and have been so excited with what I’ve found that I decided to do a whole look with ALL Canadian products! (YAY!) Lets get started on my Oh, Canada! look!
Heres what I used.
|Set With Powder|
Built into the Quo concealer is a little pot of yellow-ish toned powder to set your concealer. I used the little finger pad it came with to gently pat powder over my concealed areas for extra staying power and redness reduction.
Next, I used my new Balmshell Cheek Smear in Blackmail Betty. I applied three dots to my cheeks and blended in with the built in sponge on the other end. (NOTE: You HAVE to be lightning fast in blending this! I stained by cheeks taking this picture and had to scrub to get it off! The end result is worth it though, its a gorgeous colour!) After the blush I buffed in my Annabelle Mineral foundation with a Kabuki brush. I then added a light layer of Annabelle’s Mineral Blush for added glow and a bit of shimmer!
Next, I moved on to eyes. I applied Annabelle Smudgeliner in OhMyGoth! (black) to my upper lash line and created a small wing at the corner to elongate my eye shape. I didn’t use the smudger on the top lash line, I wanted a solid, defined look! I went over that line with my Annabelle Studio Pigment in Matte black to smoke it out a tiny bit and to give it more staying power! (By the way, ignore my terrible nail polish! Not even my Seche Vite could keep my Claire’s Mood polish on… haha)
|Lower Lash Liner|
I then took Annabelle’s Smudgeliner in Armour, a GORGEOUS grey/purple-ish (hard to explain but so pretty!) and smudged it into my lower lashes for a little colour and a soft line. After that I took a small shadow brush and dipped it into my Annabelle Mineral Pigment Dust in Prism (iridescent white/pink/purple – it changes colour depending on the light angle) and tapped it onto the inner corner and brow bone.
|Finish with Mascara|
I then applied two coats of LashFusion XL in Black to give my lashes some volume, curl and length!
And polished off my look with a coat of LipFusion in Clear (my favourite gloss ever!)
|The Finished Product|
So heres my finished Canadian look! (I personally think the blush is too heavy but this was my first time using it and as I said, I stained my cheeks taking that picture!) Other than that I absolutely love this look and I love that it is all from Canadian brands! I really hope to see more Canadian Labels making it big in the beauty world soon!
