x Off the Shoulder. I love love love off the shoulder everything. It’s so flirty and girlie. My FAV.
x Chic backpacks. Slick leather backpacks are IN. Get one that is colorful to add a pop to your summer outfits.
x Slip dresses. Airy, flowy, silky and so summery. DYING for flirty slip dresses this summer.
x Scallop bikini. I NEED THIS. Definitely on my wish list. So pretty!!
x Pastel. Everything. Bags, hair ties, lipstick, phone cases, jewelry. Everything.
x Flowy Boho dresses. There is something so zen and lovely about a flowy white boho maxi in the summer. It makes me want to go get sorbet and walk along a beach somewhere. Am I right?!

EVERYTHING Color Correction for $14

Hay girl hayyyy

So I tried this new thing and I’m obsessed with it.
COLOR CORRECTION.
Don’t be scared and also don’t think you CAN’T do it.
You can, cause I can.

Who here has wished they could have a perfect complexion for even just one day?
You’ve come to the right place.

OKAY and best part? YOU DON’T NEED TO SPEND $312498 ON TOP BRANDS TO LOOK FLAWLESS!
Step into my office.

 

Color Correction

Andrea Ewanishan, lifestyle blogger from Calgary, explains color correction techniques that are used to create a flawless complexion.

 

I use the Color Correction Palette by NYX and I’m so obsessed. I actually had a nightmare my color correction palette’s colors all got smushed together and it was so devastating. I have issues.

But honestly it’s so good and hELLO $14!?!??!?!
It’s also so compact and portable. Plus all the colors you need are in one palette. I researched {ofcourse} and SO many beauty bloggers are recommending this one!

Andrea Ewanishan, lifestyle blogger from Calgary, explains color correction techniques that are used to create a flawless complexion.

 

So basically all you need to remember is that

 

whatever color you want to COVER UP, you apply whatever color is across from it on this fabulous color wheel.

 

Andrea Ewanishan shares her tips and tricks for color correction.

This is the best part. It’s just like painting by color bahahaha

 

  • Redness = GREEN
  • Dullness = PURPLE
  • Blue/Green {under eyes} = YELLOW/PEACH or ORANGE/RED

 

Andrea Ewanishan, lifestyle blogger from Calgary, explains color correction techniques that are used to create a flawless complexion.

AFTER ONLY MOISTURIZER AND PRIMER start your color correction process….

I saw a little redness around my nostrils so GREEN went there and also on any blemishes.

YELLOW or PEACH went to my blue/green under eye circles in a large upside down triangle shape.

If you’re fair skinned, use peach. If you have really dark circles use yellow. If you have dark skin you can even use DEEP ORANGE or RED.

PURPLE is used anywhere to kinda brighten up your face. I LOVE to apply it on my high cheekbones and bridge of my nose + middle of my forehead.

 

LIFE SAVER: If you’re panicked just Google any color wheel and look on your phone. No need to have a meltdown.

 

Now I just used my fingers but you can use a concealer brush or large foundation brush to apply the colors.

Next, dampen your trusty beauty blender and press the colors gently onto your face so the color isn’t so vibrant.

I actually used a bit of my FAV translucent powder to set the color.

Top it with foundation or BB cream with your beauty blender GENTLY, making sure not to totally smudge the colors.

Finally apply a final coat of translucent loose powder to set everything in place. #Flawless!!!!!!!!!

Nair SUGAR Wax :O

Hey Sugar
So we have to talk about something. Waxing.

I know, we’re having some serious girl talk today. K but seriously how many of you wax? And IF SO, who does it themselves?…

Uhmmm if you do, COMMENT YOUR TIPS BELOW PLZ.

 

But I’m gunna go ahead and toss ‘waxing’ out the window. I hate waxing. But what I don’t hate is sugaring.

It’s basically revolutionary.

I’ve been unable to see my YYC sugaring specialist for a bit {PS I’m totally going to do a Girl Talk with her and give you guys allllll the sugary secrets so stay tuned}. Therefore, when I saw this Nair SUGAR wax kit I thought ‘NEED to try this’.

Second thought? Need to share my experience with you.

 

Nair SUGAR Wax Kit

Nairs Sugar Wax review by the one and only Andrea Ewanishan! Calgary lifestyle blog.

 

Omg so I’m not a great waxer. At. All. I’m not even a good waxer. How do people do it themselves?! {seriously, comment your tips below}.

I’ve heard if you take an Advil or Tylenol before it helps with the pain a little. What do you guys think?

Okay back to me, so let’s put my less than satisfactory waxing skills aside and talk about the wax kit.

MY FAV SO FAR.

Okay so the heating instructions were so precise and easy to follow that I had no worries at all about over heating the wax. KEY.

Next, the smell was great. Just like candied apples.

Lastly, my FAV PART was that Nair advertised the wax would remove easily with warm water… AND YOU GUYS IT ACTUALLY DID.

I legit thought that claim was false but I was ecstatic when it seriously worked. I mean who else HATES the residue + sticky feeling post wax? Some people avoid waxing for this very reason. Well no more brainstorming new avoidance techniques. This residue wipes off with warm water with ease.

 

So with that, I would definitely recommend this Sugar Wax Kit to my BFFs. But maybe don’t let me do the actual waxing.
