Another plus of this innovative brand is that they are Canadian and owned by a strong female CEO Debbie Bondar. Who doesn’t LOVE that?! She avidly promotes the genuine girl, who uses makeup to empower her to live fearlessly and meet her goals.

Let’s be honest.. who doesn’t want to be the most fresh-faced glowy bitch on their wedding day…? I am right ?!

Being a classic girly girl at heart, I appreciated many forms of beauty from fashion,
