For the past 11 months I’ve been spending a few days a week travelling into Toronto for either school or my internship. I don’t own my own car or even want to attempt to battle traffic every day, so I spend a lot of time in the morning on the GO Train.
I’m not a huge morning person so I will spend every moment that I can laying in bed. I still want to look somewhat presentable and put my best face forward, so I manage to put makeup most mornings. I’ve become one of the people who has perfected getting my makeup on while I’m on the go train, even though everyone on the GO Train tends to look at me like I’m a crazy person.
I want to share some of the products that I use on my commute and some tips that have been working well for me.
I’ve recently been looking at my makeup collection and realizing that I have way too many products. It’s definitely time to go through my collection and start decluttering everything. I decided to start a project that I saw floating around twitter a few weeks ago – #projectpan. I want to try to make a dent in some of the products that I used to love but have just pushed aside for newer products recently. I wanted to go a little more simple for this first post and see if this is something that I can actually stick to. I chose 4 different products to try to use up over the next 6 months.
Colourpop is definitely one of my favourite makeup brands. I’ve gone on quite a few shopping splurges on the Colourpop website. I appreciate the amount of products that I can get from them at such a reasonable price. I’ve always loved their lip products, I think I own almost all of their ultra satin liquid lip products.
Recently I’ve been trying their highlighters and I don’t know why I haven’t tried them earlier. They are amazing! View Post
I definitely have an addiction to subscription boxes for makeup products. I’m currently subscribed to Ipsy and Morphe brushes and I’ve previously been subscribed to Birchbox and Glossybox. When I found out that Boxycharm was finally shipping to Canada I didn’t think twice about signing up.
June was a month of discovering a lot of new products, as well as rediscovering products that I haven’t used in a while. I tried to cut down the amount of products I used on a regular basis. Commuting into the city for early classes means that I want to make my mornings as quick and simple as possible.
