A Nude Lipstick Perfect for My Complexion!

It’s no surprise that I like an eye catching lip color, but I’ve always envied those who can pull off a matte nude look. As a woman with darker skin, finding a neutral nude was actually more difficult than I’d like to admit. I tried a number of different brands and shades, but everything just made my lips look ashy. I decided to give up the search and chalked it up to the fact that brighter colors look better on…

I Love My: Herbivore Rose Hibiscus Hydrating Facial Mist

During my office holiday party every year our boss so kindly gives each of us a small gift on top of what we exchange for Secret Santa. This time, she gifted us all with the very chic Herbivore Rose Hibiscus Hydrating Face Mist ($32) — which I actually had on my holiday gift guide. So you already know I was THRILLED to receive it. I’ve been spritzing it on a few times a week ever since and honestly love how…

Non-Red Lip Colors for Valentine’s Day!

I love red lipstick. To me it’s the perfect color and goes so well with almost everything I wear. It just brightens the mood. BUT, for Valentine’s Day let’s admit — it’s super cliché. With V-Day only a few days away I wanted to round up a few lip colors that were more unexpected to spice things up. For my shoot I went a little extreme and rocked a black lipstick from Black | Up ($23). However, here are some…

The Best Blue Nail Polish Ever, By Gelish

A good blue polish is hard to come by. Which is why I just had to share details on this color I recently applied to my nails from Gelish in “Mali-Blu Me Away.” ($13) It is bold and radiant enough that it makes a statement, but somehow remains neutral enough not to clash with any colors I’m wearing. In the photos the polish is actually about a week old and still upheld the shine, and it hasn’t chipped! I’m writing this…

New Year’s Eve Beauty Inspiration

I’ll admit, I tried to skip going out for New Year’s this year, but I’m such a sucker for getting dressed up that when I was doing the shoot for this post I got a serious case of FOMO. Afterwards I texted my girlfriend like, what we doin’?! I just love an opportunity to go all out with my look and New Year’s Eve is always the most fun. Whether you decide to keep it to an intimate house party,…

2016 Holiday Gift Guide for Beauty Lovers

I honestly love Christmas and the holiday season as a whole. I love the mulled wine, decorating the tree, Christmas albums and of course the gifts. Obviously I love receiving them, but I get so much excitement out of researching and giving gifts to others. Sometimes it may seem daunting trying to get something that you know for a fact the person you’re gifting will absolutely love, so I definitely look to holiday gift guides for inspiration. I decided to…

My Favorite Products: November

With being a beauty blogger I am of course constantly scouting and trying new products each week or even each day. However, I feel it’s important to have a routine in the products you use and stick to what works best — this is when you really see results. So, I decided that each month I’d highlight the products I use most consistently that don’t necessarily fit into my weekly reviews. Here are my favorite products from November. MAC Studio…

Beauty Must-Haves For an Impromptu Night Away from Home

The other day my girlfriend Natalie and I were discussing items that women should always have in their purse when going out with a guy — you know, just in case you decide not to go home… If you’re like me, you usually travel with a mid to smaller sized cross body bag or clutch when out on the weekends, so we have to be strategic. Here are some purse / wallet friendly beauty must-have items I’d recommend keeping on…

My November Birchbox Products!

Birchbox is truly the easiest way to test out a variety of new beauty products and I highly recommend it for all beauty lovers. Here are my products for November! Clinique Cream Shaper For Eyes ($16.50) A.K.A. eyeliner, haha. I love when brands give a fancy name to very simple products. My phases with eyeliner go in and out, I’ll spend months not wearing it to achieve a more “fresh faced” look, and then I’ve have a phase where I’m…
