What’s In My Makeup Bag? A Gif Tutorial of My Everyday Makeup Routine!

Lately I have been getting a lot of compliments on my skin and how natural my makeup looks, which makes me so happy. I’ve of course gone through all the phases with my makeup like using a foundation that is several shades too light, going overboard on bronzer, using a brow pencil that is just too dark–you name it. So the fact that I’ve finally gotten my makeup routine down to something that truly suits me, and that I can do…

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.

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…

At Home Remedy for Chapped, Flaky Lips

My lips have been so chapped this winter — more than any other, and a few of my friends have said that theirs feel the same. I’ve gone through a ton of different lip balms and no matter what they just keep flaking. So I knew I had to up the ante in terms of how I take care of my lips. I started off by researching different lip scrubs, because I feel the best way to begin the process…

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

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…

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…

Beauty on a Budget: My Drugstore Favs

I am the first to admit, makeup is too damn expensive. Not that, that stops me from buying MAC or brands at Sephora, but it does add up. Believe it or not I really feel some drugstore brands are on par with their more expensive counterparts in terms of quality, and after all, buying products at the drugstore is where it all started for me at the beginning of college. Here are some favorites that are currently in my makeup…
