How to further {Perfect} what is already {Perfect}❤

Hello loves

Today's post is about the ever so popular {Makeup Routines}! On my Youtube Channel "Stylelights", my Subscribers have a fond love of telling me that my skin is flawless - while this of course is extremely flattering - I think every girl will 99% of the time say it's all about finding the right products that work well with your skin to give that "Flawless" look without caking it on & still bringing out your natural beauty.

Truthfully, I feel my best when having little to no makeup on, but hey that's just me. I think girls these days underestimate what they already have to work with, all they see in the media is celebrities wearing pounds of makeup and assume that's what is needed to be classified as "pretty".

What we all need to do is take a step back and truly {see} ourselves. See those beautiful eyes - see those freckles - see those beauty marks - see it all and understand that you don't have to cover that up. Now don't get me wrong, I love makeup & I am not saying that you gotta go out with a bare face. I too have things that are not exactly what I would call perfect and so there are little things that you can do to make yourself feel a bit more comfortable..

Hence the title {How to Perfect what is already Perfect}!

Now for me,  I have three main things that don't quite fit my ideal look.

* I lack Full Brows - so to achieve the look I desire most, I fill them in
* I have always had extremely short eyelashes - so what makes me feel comfortable is getting eyelash extensions
* I have a really round face - so to slim it out & give some definition, I love to contour

The most important thing to understand is that although I may have things that I am not quite happy with about my look - It doesn't mean that it makes me any less "pretty". To be honest, whenever I post a makeup tutorial the majority of the comments I receive aren't about the makeup itself, but instead about how "naturally beautiful I am" - which says it all right there. You don't need to put pounds of makeup on, what you see everyday in the mirror is gorgeous as it is - so instead, to make yourself truly believe it - there are simple things that you can do to play up your natural beauty & truly feel good doing it!

A Day in my Life- Wintery Day out with my Mama❤

Hello loves❤

I bet you all thought I was kidding when I titled my previous post "Spring Inspired outfit - yet still making snow angels". Nope, I wasn't lying...It's March & we've still got quite a bit of snow on the ground - But it's pretty so I can't really complain!

First off, a big Thank you to all of my subscribers for requesting more Vlogs on my channel, I'm so happy you guys enjoy getting the chance to get a sneak peek into my life! On this particular day it was my day off so I decided to head out to Hamilton to spend it with my mum. If you are familiar with the city, it holds many {interesting things for lack of a better word haha} but truthfully has many amazing places to visit. On this day, we ventured out to Princess Point which is a breath taking spot right on the lake especially when the sun is setting. For once we had a GORGEOUS Sunny day so we knew we had to spend it outside with our pups..even if it WAS in the snow ❤
It was a beautiful day to be spent with my favorite woman & I can honestly say in my life, she is truly my Dash of Something Pretty❤ 

Outfit of the Day❤ Spring Inspired..yet still making snow angels..

Hello loves❤

I don't know about you but here in Ontario, Spring just does not look like it's coming any time soon! Nevertheless, I will NOT let that bring me down and stop me from bringing out the skirts! I pretty much live in skirts and Dresses when those warmer days roll's actually a little embarrassing how many of them I own to be honest - but when it comes to my best girls needing a cute outfit? My closet is the spot to shop! So that's a plus - finally giving back to the community haha.

Today, I decided to pull out one of my favorite Velvet skirts and pair it with some knee high socks, a cute grey cropped sweater and my trusty Steve Madden boots❤

For the Makeup, I usually tend to rock as little as possible. I don't know what it is but there is something so liberating about wearing little to no makeup...maybe it's just me. Today I went with my signature full Brows {because let's be real everyone needs killer brows}, a little natural taupe shadow, Some eyeliner,  paired with a pretty gold liner along my lower lash line❤
For the hair, recently I have been adoring anything with Braids! Today I went with a small braid pinned to the side with some loose waves❤
Here's hoping Spring makes an appearance soon! These Winter blues are in desperate need of a Dash of Something Pretty❤
