Technical difficulties have kept us off of YouTube for a hot minute but we did manage to film a First Quarter Favourites for you recently. As soon as it's out of post production I'll insert it here for you but in the interim here's the roundup. Where I have individual reviews please click the link to see more information.

  • M.A.C Satin Blush 'Ripe For Love'. (limited edition, sorry!) It's a 'peachy-pink' with a nice sheen.
  • a love gift Heidi got me on her trip to Austria. It's a potted lip balm with the cutest packaging ever and a handy mirror.
  • Make Up For Ever HD Microfinish Powder. This is a silica powder which I use to set under eye concealer or to mattify shiny lipsticks. You only need a little to get the job done.

Heidi Bowen of Moden Makeup

Let's get the obvious one out of the way shall we 😉 I've said before how much I've learned watching Heidi conduct her Workshops. Since then she has increased her skillset, restructured her modules and truly focused on knowledge sharing. Every participant departs feeling enlightened; emboldened to try something they once thought was daunting. No one leaves empty handed. This kindda thing speaks to me because I've attended many M.A.C classes and saw the value only in the products I was reimbursed.
