That doesn’t mean everyone can just reach into their wallets and fork out some money. I get it! So here’s 5 skincare tips that don’t cost you a dime. 1. Cleanse your face AFTER you wash and condition your hair. Most women I know cleanse their […]


Unpopular Makeup Techniques and Opinions

Unpopular Makeup Techniques and Opinions

Last week I watched a video on YouTube by Emily on this subject and thought I would give it a go! This post is basically all about unpopular or uncommon makeup techniques and opinions. If you spend anytime in the beauty community on social media, you’ll notice that certain techniques and certain products can dominate the scene. But every woman is different! So here are my unpopular techniques and opinions – both good and bad! 1) I avoid high end complexion products. I purposefully avoid more expensive complexion products, such as: primer, foundation, concealer, setting powder, and setting spray. I’m doing […]

Favorite Lipsticks for Summer | 2018

I’m pretty solid in my makeup ways, especially when it comes to complexion products. However, one makeup product that I like to switch up, especially with the seasons, is my lipsticks. I don’t even do it consciously or intentionally – it just naturally happens as I’m inundated with trends, vibes, and color palettes on social media. I have this nifty, little, heart-shaped acrylic organizer that I use for my most-used lipsticks of the season. Let’s take a peek at my favorite lipsticks for summer… You’ll notice that not all of these are lipsticks. I have lipsticks, glosses, liquid lipsticks, and […]

I was so excited when I saw that Target was offering their Beauty Boxes in store! If you don’t know, a Beauty Box is a box filled with beauty products. Weird, right?!

Blend Foundation Quickly: the tool that has changed my life!

Blend Foundation Quickly: the tool that has changed my life!

If you’re looking for a way to blend foundation quickly, then look no further! I have discovered the secret – and that secret is simply using a large sponge!

While they vary in shape, they are generally the same size. But I recently picked up a Sonia Kashuk sponge from Target and noticed it was huge and that it greatly cut down on my time spent blending.
