I’ve only recently been introduced to Beautezine, but it’s very quickly become a weekly read. Not only is Jessica Desjardins one of the most thorough bloggers when it comes to product reviews, but her self-made “lookbooks” give me tonnes of ideas (her recent Karl Lagerfeld x Shu Uemura look was eye-opening — literally!) This Ottawa-based beauty darling also has enviable photography skills that make her a true pro in the blogging world. As a top beauty blogger, I imagine she’s accumulated a hoarder-worthy amount of products, so I was curious which ones are the true stars. 
Beauty Motto
Makeup should make you feel beautiful and confident. Whether that’s a little, or a lot, it’s all about personal creativity and preference.
Morning Ritual
I wake up at 7am, grab a cup of coffee and check my emails, answer comments and read blog posts from other blogs that I follow. Then I hop in the shower, get dressed and usually apply a bit of foundation and concealer (as long as I’m not trying any new ones), so I have a blank canvas ready for testing new products or doing a look. Next I get cracking on photos, posts and testing.
