Azra’s Pick is a weekly beauty column that features Azra’s beauty faves, from lipsticks to lotions and everything in between, specifically for gals in their 20s.
This week on Azra’s Pick, I’m doing things a little differently. Instead of reviewing a product that I’ve been loving, I’m going to be introducing you to an incredible blog. The polar vortex we’ve had over that past few months has been a ridiculous buzz-kill in my life and I’ve been lacking some serious inspiration on the beauty front. So to get me out of that beauty funk, I’ve turned to one of my all time favourite beauty blogs, Beauty Is Boring, to put the spring back into my beauty routine (see what I did there?).
Robin Black, the lady behind this incredible blog, is ridiculously talented. She’s the creative genius responsible for all the makeup looks you see on the site. Her blog is pretty much a photo essay of everything beauty and makeup-related and I absolutely love it. Her makeup looks vary from traditional to more ‘out there’, and have become a big inspiration to my beauty routine. Though I’ve never had the guts to try any of the bolder looks, I can always keep those looks on file when I’m feeling adventurous. Come summer, I might just rock a vibrant orange lip or an awesome bronzed smokey-eye! What’s great about the visuals on the blog is that not only do they have your average editorial images, but there are also some really cool outtakes from Robin’s makeup shoots. When I say that Robin is a creative genius, I promise I’m not lying; her 27 Seconds videos are crazy cool, artistic and beyond quirky.
