GenBeauty Toronto 2016 | Event Recap + Creator Party

  Generation Beauty Toronto 2016 Generation Beauty (or rather, GenBeauty), was held on May 14-15 at the Toronto Metro Convention Centre. You may recognize the venue, as it is the same hall that Fan Expo Canada is held! GenBeauty was founded by Youtube Star and ipsy creator Michelle Phan. It’s not so much a convention (like I originally though – more on that later), but a gathering of brands, beauty content creators, and their audiences.

If my April makeup had a theme, it would likely be “Dependable Basics”. Read on to find out…

#BrowsOnFleek | Fave Brow Products

Ooh gurl, your brows are on fleeeeeek! Or at least, I’d like to hope! My brow journey has been a rough one. My early teen years saw them plucked to a curved thin line – Myspace scene kid aesthetic anyone? (Those photos will never see the light of day.) I manged to grow them out a bit but the stress of university introduced a little trich tick, where I pulled out almost half of my eyebrow hairs in order to cope.
