HOT Pink Gel Nail Polish for Summer by WAVEGEL

It’s finally hot in NYC and so are my finger nails! I wasted no time getting a bright hue for the warmer months and got my manicure done in a fun hot pink by WAVEGEL in “Purple Pepper.” I tried a new nail salon, 28 Nail, by my office and decided to go for something new to fête the change of season. As you know, I’m typically a Gelish girl when it comes to my gel manicures. I’ve dabbled in OPI,…

New Red Alert! LOC Vibrant Matte Lipstick

You all know I love a strong red lip. My go-to is generally Stila’s Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Beso, but when I find other good reds I have to give them a shoutout. I recently got my hands on the LOC Vibrant Matte Lipstick ($10) in my March Birchbox and brought it along with me to Cuba. I had never previously heard of the brand LOC and was pleasantly surprised at just how pigmented the color was. It’s just the…

3 Glossier Products I’ll Be Rocking All Summer ’17

Glossier

When it comes to clothing I don’t necessarily have a typical “uniform,” I’d consider myself more of a style “chameleon” if you will, and dress depending particularly on my mood. Makeup on the other hand, I keep pretty routine on a day-to-day basis. I have a specific no-fuss look I like to maintain, that still makes a statement. In the summer I gravitate towards lightweight products but keep the formula for my face beat consistent–bold brows, rosy cheeks and a highlight.…

The Best Concealer for Achieving the Perfect ‘No Makeup’ Makeup Look

It’s freezing out right now, but you know what? I’m going to hold on to hopes of warmer days ahead. Therefore, it’s time for me to start thinking of and purchasing beauty products that will be beneficial in the summer. A few months ago I walked in to Sephora specifically to purchase the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer ($30)– everyone has it, everyone loves it and I wanted to try it for myself. I surprisingly wasn’t big on concealer prior to this, I…

So Excited to Announce that I’m Now a Glossier Rep!

As you all know I absolutely adore the brand Glossier! I’ve mentioned this previously but it’s definitely the “cool girl” beauty brand of the moment with its no frills and all chic approach. Last Friday as I was getting ready for a night out, I got an e-mail from one of the Glossier Community Managers, Samantha, letting me know that she loves the content I’ve been producing and that they are interested in me becoming a rep for the brand!…

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…
