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. 

find must have menswear with soinyou

Fall is a wonderful time of year, but to be honest, I am already thinking ahead. Christmas is a little over two months away. Since so much holiday shopping needs to be done online these days, ordering ahead is always a good idea. Whether you or a loved one needs a fabulous outfit for a holiday party or special event...or you want to give the gift of fashion this year...there is no better time to start browsing. That is exactly what I have been doing thanks to Soinyou. This online retailer has an impressive assortment of menswear that is anything but ordinary. That means it is possible to shop for yourself, spoil someone you love with a few unforgettable pieces, or find a special event look that will turn heads.

kylie jenner week: early impressions (kylie skin)

Kylie Jenner Week is in full swing here on the creation of beauty is art. While the last post included a haul and a video...this post is dedicated to Kylie Skin. Though I have been able to try out different Kylie Cosmetics products over the years, this was my first time being able to use Kylie Skin. Excited doesn't even begin to describe it. As I have mentioned many times before, taking better care of my skin is always on my list of new years resolutions. This is because I often struggle to be consistent or to do a full skin care routine. Thankfully, the 6-Piece Kylie Skin set makes taking care of my skin foolproof.

kylie jenner week: kylie cosmetics haul + video

There is no denying the fact that Kylie Jenner is a pop culture icon. This starlet grew up on reality television but made a name for herself thanks to Kylie Cosmetics. The beloved lip kit totally transformed the beauty world. Since then, Kylie Cosmetics has become a massive brand that continues to expand. Case in point? Kylie Cosmetics is now available in Canada. Woo hoo! Previously, her products were available online (with steep shipping fees) and in the US. In the past, I had placed a small handful of orders on her website. However, the shipping fees and exchange rate made it a once and a while treat rather than something that could be done on a regular or even semi-regular basis. Whenever I would visit the US on a shopping trip or vacation, it was Ulta, Ulta, and more Ulta, because I wanted to take home a few Kylie Cosmetics items with me. But now? All of that is over. Kylie Cosmetics is finally available in my country and I could not be more excited. Now, I will be able to pop over to the drugstore if I run out of something or if I am in the mood for a new lip kit. What bliss! 

To celebrate the release of Kylie Cosmetics in Canada, the creation of beauty is art. is having a theme week. That's right...this is Kylie Jenner Week. There will be makeup looks, reviews, and so much more.

does it work?? kaja wink stamp (eyeliner stamp + eyeliner pen)

Every once and a while, a product comes along that makes you wonder. The Kaja Wink Stamp Wing Eyeliner Stamp and Eyeliner Pen set is certainly something that made me wonder. It claimed to deliver a perfect wing in seconds. What could be better than that? As someone who has always struggled with winged liner (despite my obsession with it) this sounded like a total dream come true. Finally, my winged liner would match. I don't know why, but liner on my left eye is always a breeze and liner on my right eye is always a nightmare. I can never seem to get the right to match the left. It feels like such a struggle, no matter how many times I do my makeup. And I do my makeup almost every single day! Despite that, winged liner is always the hardest part for me. The idea of a stamp that would simplify the application process really interested me. So....does it work??

#FOTD: bronze and gold fall makeup look

It is time for another #FOTD. Lately, one of my favourite things has been to do my makeup for no reason at all. I really don't leave the house much (thanks to working from home and doing everything possible to stay safe) a little makeup look can really go a long way. Not only does it boost my mood and make me feel a little more polished, but it adds a bit of normality to my days. Not to mention a healthy dose of self expression! Since the fall season is fully underway, my go-to colours seem to be lots of warm bronzes and golds. They just scream autumn because they remind me of the leaves changing colour and all of those stunning warm shades. It also helps that warm metallics are ideal for everyday makeup looks. Ready to take a peek at this recent fall makeup look? Keep reading to find out what products were used and how this seasonal makeup was created.
