Stellar Makeup hits Sephora

Canadian television personality, Monika Deol just launched her first beauty collection called Stellar, exclusive to Sephora. Her brand was inspired by her personal struggle to find makeup shades that matched her medium skin tone. After careful research, Monika came to the realization that she was not alone — and for real she’s not! This is something my middle-eastern skintone has struggled with as well! Her findings that the beauty industry does not effectively cater to women with medium and olive skin tones was so on point! And something I’ve spent a lot of time talking to brands about. Especially with diversity being such a hot topic, but somehow I always felt like we were lumped into the latina skin-tone category (which I find limited if you fall in the more middle eastern/Indian decent). Taking matters into her own hands, she began to create Stellar, a line that addressed all skintones but with a focus on those with overlooked skin tones in the beauty world.

The collection goes beyond foundations and concealers – Deol was determined to create other products that would flatter a range of other complexions, such as lipsticks, eyeshadows, and powders. I was so excited to meet her at the launch party (there was glitter lattes and rainbow bagels, no lie!) and played around with some of her products.

Makeup Geek New Foiled Pigment Collection

After seeing Makeup Geek all over my Instagram page, I was so excited to meet the brands founder, Marlena Stell at breakfast last month. The beauty vlogger turned makeup founder of Makeup Geek started four years ago and it’s so inspiring and incredible to see where this brand has gone. I heard her eyeshadows were incredible but I have to say her new Foiled Pigment shadows AND glosses blew my mind. I’m a sucker for a super pigmented eyeshadow, so you can imagine my excitement when you see the swatches below. The new Foiled makeup collection features 10 mesmerizing mineral pigment eyeshadows and equally amazing glosses, details and swatches below!

These beautiful shades can be used anywhere on the body or face and used alone or mixed with your favorite body lotion, foundation, or moisturizer for a shimmer effect. They blend so smooth and are absolutely stunning! Swatches below, you can see from the photos from two different angles how well they catch and reflect light.
