live every day like it's your birthday.

Birthdays are special. Especially these days. I have always been a bit of a birthday brat (I love cake and presents and feeling like a queen for a day) but now that my second pandemic birthday has arrived...this day means more than ever. I am so grateful to be safe, to have my family nearby, and to be able to enjoy all of the little things in life. Like birthday cake with sprinkles! This year, the celebrations will be pretty low key, but certainly more than last year. The plan is to have a virtual movie night with some friends (we will all watch the same movie at the same time and chat about it online) and then dinner with my immediate family. I am very much looking forward to celebrating the day - both virtually and in-person - with the people that I love most. That is what birthdays are for, after all! To celebrate the day, a birthday tag seemed to be in order.

2 looks 1 palette: revolution forever dynamic tranquil palette

It was only a few months ago that the Revolution Forever Dynamic Tranquil Eyeshadow Palette was reviewed on the creation of beauty is art. (In case you missed that review, you can take a look at it here.) Since then, this small but mighty drugstore release has been used often in my day-to-day life. As I've mentioned previously, doing my makeup brings me a lot of joy. So, even though I work from home, this is something that I try to make time for each day. This Revolution palette is perfect for the days when I want something ultra shimmery or ultra colourful. Which is why for this 2 looks 1 palette post, there will be a shimmery metallic look as well as a colourful blue look. Ready to see how they turned out? Here are some recent looks created using the unforgettable Revolution Forever Dynamic Tranquil Eyeshadow Palette.

review: jessica simpson lip products (beauty fiend nude lip kit)

Jessica Simpson is a memorable celebrity for so many reasons. Not only has she had a successful pop music career, a hit reality television show, a celebrity perfume line, a billion dollar fashion empire, and a hit memoir....she also has dabbed in the beauty world every now and then. It wasn't too long ago, that I was browsing the selection at Winners that I found this Beauty Fiend by Jessica Simpson Nude Lip Kit. It contained four different lip products and cost a mere $9.99. Needless to say, curiosity took over, and this little lip kit came home with me that day. Since I am a fan of both beauty products and Jessica Simpson, it only made sense. Ready to find out what was inside this aesthetically pleasing lip kit? See how it all performed? Here is everything you need to know about the Jessica Simpson Beauty Fiend Nude Lip Kit.

kylie jenner week: kylie fashion inspiration

Kylie Jenner isn't just known for her plump pout and successful makeup brand. She is also known for her daring sense of style. Her red carpet looks tend to play with colour and pattern...and there are always strategically placed cut outs involved. She isn't afraid to wear form-fitting gowns one night and oversized jeans the next. As someone who is not nearly as daring when it comes to personal style, it is always exciting to see what Kylie is wearing in her latest Instagram post or in a new photoshoot. Her outfits are never bland or boring. She certainly stands out with her style! Ready for a little fashion inspiration? Here are some of my all-time favourite Kylie Jenner looks as part of the latest theme week here on the creation of beauty is art.
