April Beauty Product Empties

A couple of months ago I did a post about some beauty product empties. It was basically me going over my hoarded makeup trash and discussing whether or not I would repurchase those products. It did relatively well, and it’s about time I did another! So here’s how it goes: picture of trash followed by a mini review and if I would purchase the product again. Pretty simple. Got it? The first thing on my list for April beauty product empties iiiiissss… Mary Kay Translucent Powder At the risk of sounding dramatic, I’M OBSESSED WITH THIS POWDER. Translucent powder can […]

Ardell Magnetic Lashes | Review & How I Got Them To Work For Me

This post contains affiliate links. See my disclosure here. If you follow me on my makeup Instagram account, then you may have picked up on the fact that I despise full-band false lashes. I find them absolutely uncomfortable and hate wearing them. So, to still add some drama to my looks, I’ve been using Ardell or Kiss lash trios for the last year or so. Those are comfortable to wear and I love them, but they do take quite some time to apply. So I was thrilled when I saw these Ardell magnetic lashes! They looked so easy peasy, comfortable, […]


Eyebrow Tutorial | How I Do Mine & What Products I Use

I’d say that out of everything I do, I definitely get the most comments on my eyebrows. People seem to love them, so I thought I would share my eyebrow tutorial with you guys. This video is from a Facebook LIVE stream that I did about five months ago.  I know the lighting is super wonky, so please forgive me, but the info is solid and I do a pretty decent job of explaining myself as I go. Since I did record this several months ago, the products I use have changed. You can find a description of what I […]

Changing seasons means new makeup releases, and that means your girl is excited! Let’s not waste time and get right into my makeup wish list for Spring 2018! The first thing on my list is one of these Vanish Flash Highlighting Sticks by Hourglass. These are already being highly raved about by others in the beauty community!

A Glowing Makeup Haul from the Drugstore + Reviews

I’m really excited to be bringing my first haul to you! This was my first time out shopping for makeup for my blog and that felt great! You guys – it’s part of my job to shop for makeup!

Anyways, it was warming up for us here in Phoenix, which had me thinking spring is around the corner, so I wanted to focus on products that will get my skin glowing to give it a fresh look. Glowing makeup, if you will; however, joke’s on me because we have now plummeted back down to […]


Using Every Eyeshadow in the Palette

Using Every Eyeshadow in the Palette

If you haven’t seen this going around, then my question to you is WHY ARE YOU LIVING UNDER A ROCK?! These videos have been so popular on YouTube and are so fun to watch. If you are unfamiliar with this concept, it’s when an artist selects an eyeshadow palette and then attempts to use every single shade in the palette. I’d say, at max, I maybe use seven eyeshadows for my more complex looks. So being challenged to use every single shade is quite the – well – challenge.   For reference, click here to watch one of my favorite YouTubers […]

January Beauty Product Empties

January Beauty Product Empties

For some reason, I finished off a large amount of makeup products this month. And instead of throwing them away like a sane person, I hoarded the trash so that I could blog about it. This is my first time doing a post like this, so here’s how it’s gonna go: 1) a picture of the product, 2) a mini review of the product, and 3) if I will be repurchasing this product or not. So I bring to you my January beauty product empties. This post contains affiliate links and banners. Please read my full disclosure here.   Makeup […]
