my friday morning face

hot child in the city friday morning look

Happy Friday blushers! It promises to be a balmy 41 degrees Celsius here in Toronto so my hair is firmly going up in a bun later and I’m wearing just the slightest hint of makeup. Kjaer Weis has been go-to green beauty brand for awhile now and for good reason. It has incredible staying power while making your skin look dewy and naturally flushed at the same time.

So what’s on tap this morning? To maintain my summer ‘kissed by the sun’ look I’m breaking into my green beauty stash and pulling out their mascara, their cream blush and their new highlighter which gives an adorably perfect ‘glow’ (my full review coming soon!). As for my lips, I was feeling a little adventurous today so I dabbed ‘diabolique’ from rms beauty on for an incredibly sassy finish.

    Love this look Sonja! Send some of that heat over to Vancouver ok!

    • Sadly it was so short lived. We’re back to cooler temps 🙁 Although I do have to be thankful I’m not in Alberta dealing with the pile of snow they just got!

  • 41C ??? incredible! Face is not too dewy with KW (especially with the heat going on)?:-)

    • all the KW products held up beautifully even in the extreme heat!

  • Kjaer Weis is an amazing, high-quality brand and I hope I have the chance to try more of them. And RMS Diabolique may be my new go to fall lip color, if I feel like going bold.

    • oooh what have you tried so far?! And I totally support you picking up ‘diabolique’ as your new bold fall colour -my only tip is to make sure your lips are hydrated and exfoliated otherwise the colour will pick up on it and really shout it out to the world.

      • I’ve gotten the chance to try their mascara, lip tint, and even blush. But I have yet to experience the joy of their highlighter and foundation. Mostly because I already had some I was waiting to use up and that price tag.
