Hi everyone! I'm Jodi and I'm taking over Just J today while she's away. I blog at Up the Rollercoaster where I share my lipstick obsession and occasionally gush about my love for my cat, Korra. But today I'm going to be sharing a few of the Canadian bloggers who constantly inspire me and who I fangirl over a little bit every time they share a new post.
First up, Chelle of Make Up Your Mind loves colour and she constantly inspires me to play with my makeup, instead of slapping on the same old boring eyeshadow shade day after day. Her eye tutorials are easy to follow and succinct thanks to the makeup maps she creates to show her readers how she's done the makeup. She also loves lipstick just as much as I do and her weekly swatch posts often remind me to pull out older palettes again.
Jayne of Cosmetic Proof was one of the first Canadian bloggers I remember finding and she is such a sweetheart! Jayne never disappoints with her in depth reviews on the latest and greatest makeup and skincare releases and her frequent makeup tutorials. I believe she started off as a nail blogger and she pulls out those skills every once in a while to dazzle us with her skills. Plus her Instagram is full of photos of her cats, Hugo and Hemingway, which is all I can ask for, really. ;)
There are so many bloggers whose photography blows me away - I could honestly spend an entire post gushing about them. But so we aren't all here for days I am going to share a lady who has blown me away from the first moment I landed on her site. Brittany of life, set sail is a beauty and fashion blogger out of Calgary who loves to work with local and international brands alike. Whether she is shooting product photos, makeup or fashion shots her photography is always beautifully composed and lit. This girl has skill!
Okay, I can't talk about photography and leave out Natalie of Ivory Avenue. Natalie is constantly pushing herself and evolving in her art - because Natalie's photos are truly art. Every time she posts something new I am finding myself drooling a little bit. Her photos and articles could appear in any magazine and I wouldn't be shocked. Besides taking jaw-dropping photos, Natalie tests new products, shares her love for baths and occasionally shares beautiful makeup looks.
The last blogger I want to mention is another lover of lipstick and all things colour: Jenn of Vibrant, Vivacious, Veracious Beauty Blog. I first met Jenn through the Canadian Beauty Bloggers secret Santa and it's been love ever since. ;) Jenn loves to play with colour and it wouldn't be a week on VVV without her sharing a makeup look or two. If you're looking for high end product review, Jenn is your girl!
These are only a few of the Canadian bloggers that I flock to for inspiration and a smile, but I hope this little list has given you a few new blogs to follow! Thanks again to MizzJ for having me today. <3
I couldn't agree more with Jodi's picks for her fave Canadian bloggers - each of these girls has such a fantastic blog and have such fun personalities! It's so cool how each girl blogs about similar topics (makeup, skincare) yet are so different in their approaches and style. Just goes to show that it's the blogger that makes the blog! And don't forget to check out Jodi too!
