Glowy and Lit From Within
(…Minus to $$$, but thanks for the catchphrase Charlotte!) Glowy bases seem to be all the rage these days – a viral trend that seems to be taking over our blogs, our instagram feeds, and of course, our makeup kits! I’ll admit, I’m not that into the glow.Â I have quite dry skin and I feel like sometimes a sheen can emphasize that. In the summer, I’m pretty sure I sweat enough that I could pass off the perspiration as “that new hourglass setting powder!”Â
I’m not super super into matte – I guess I lean more towards…satin finishes? Is that the term? Dewy, I suppose. Here are my top picks for the days I do feel like being lit from within.

It also means the changing leaves, autumn Starbucks hot drink flavours, and vampy, berry lips!Â Today, I’ve partnered with Fjallraven Canada to show you some of my autumn and winter essentials!
The Solution Sheet Mask by The Face Shop
As you all know, The Face Shop is one of my absolute favourite skincare brands, it really transformed my skin from dry to normal, and got rid of my annoying dry patches! I previously hauled quite a few face masksÂ and skincare products, and have since burned through almost all of them. Today, I’ll be sharing The Face Shop – The Solution Sheet Mask. I only recently noticed these on the shelve so I think these are a new addition to their current sheet mask range! Each mask focuses on a certain vitamin or chemical that performs well with the skin.
