I had a special request from a follower of mine to put together a simple purple look that she could recreate for her prom. Prom can get super expensive so saving money on makeup means more cash that you can put towards other indulgences instead like accessories, limos, or that gorgeous dress you have your eye on. Anyways, here's what I put together for Nicole - enjoy!







And for those who like to see how this look might look with their eye color, here are some photoshop edits to show you how it will look on brown & green eyes. I think it looks super gorgeous against a brown eye.

WOW! I can't believe it's swimsuit season already (I knew I should have been better about those new years resolutions)! Just this last week I got an e-mail from swimwear website swimspot.com asking me  to create a summery, beach beauty tutorial to go with any one of their super cute suits. I was in DESPERATE need of a new bikini so I eagerly agreed. It was hard to pick just one from their collection but I chose an adorable yellow laser cut bikini and created a golden, sunshine inspired look to go along with it. Take a look!


Golden & glowing! Since I never tan (no skin cancer for me, thank you very much) I wanted to show you guys how to skip the sun damage and fake your way to a beautifully bronzed complexion using just a few of my favorite bronzing products.  Check out the tutorial here:


It's as simple as that, really! Pair your brand new temporary tan with warm, golden tones on the eyes and rose gold accents on the cheeks and lips to finish off the look. You will absolutely radiate warmth from within.


If you're wearing makeup for a day at the beach you don't definitely don't want to be overdone. Keep it surfer girl simple - a few shimmery shades will  make your eyes sparkle in the sun and catch attention without being too crazy. Make sure to use waterproof products whenever possible as well, especially if you plan on going in the water. If your favorite mascara isn't waterproof - never fear! - Anastasia Beverly Hills' Lash Genius goes over any mascara and instantly makes it waterproof. I use it over everything!


A glowing summertime look needs tousled beachy hair, of course! Just mist your strands with water, twist it all up into a bun on the crown of your head and let dry for a few hours. When you take it down you'll get the instant effect of having spent the day surfing & sunning. Couldn't be easier!


Okay, so ... how CUTE is this suit!? The color, the cut, everything (it also comes in black if yellow isn't your thing). I was in love when I saw it on the site and I'm so glad it fits and looks good! I love that the lacy overlay adds volume to my upper body, making my pear-shaped figure look more proportional by evening out my chest-to-hips ratio.


However, if this suit is a bit too bare-it-all for you, never fear. The site has suits for every shape and style, from totally tiny to completely covered. See their full collection here and find one that fits your summer style! Happy shopping!

Hello beauties! Are you as excited for summer as I am? The weather in Canada is finally bright, sunny & wonderful so I took a walk in the park in my brand new chiffon skirt from choies.com. This gorgeous goose-egg yellow skirt is so light and airy it almost feels like you're wearing nothing at all (scandalous!) but the bright color is sure to catch anyone's attention. Take a look!


CHOiE'S | Silk Skirt


I know I'm going to be wearing this skirt a lot this summer. It's so easy to dress up or down since the color is so fun and funky but the length is very lady like, making it perfect for the park or the office, depending on what you pair it with. 


FOREVER21 | Bow Necklace & Studded Tank




By the end I just wanted to kick off my heels, throw up my hair and enjoy the last of the day's rays. Don't forget to check out choies.com for all kind of amazing buys for summertime! Until next time! xoxo, Meredith Jessica

Hello, sunshine! Summer is almost here, so I couldn't resist creating this summer sunset inspired look using some of the brand new products I just received from Makeup Geek, Swagger Cosmetics & Anastasia Beverly Hills. I think they really came together well to create a this bold, bright and beautiful look that's sure to put you in the mood for warm weather and watching the sun go down. Enjoy!



I just had to play with my new Makeup Geek eyeshadows. This look features Simply Marlena & Cosmopolitan - two brand new shades. Plus some old favorites like Drama Queen, Mango Tango & Corrupt.


Can you see the subtle violet hue of my lower lashes? So cute, right? Loving my new Lash & Brow Tint in Ultra Violet! The Swagger Cosmetics glitter is gorgeous too. I think it really brightens up the look! Lashes are also from Swagger Cosmetics in Coquet.


Neon coral lips? Yes please! This shade is a combo of Covergirl's Kiss & Swagger Cosmetics Lolita. I just can't get enough!


This was my inspiration for the look. Ah, sweet summer. Come soon please!
