Today I'm just getting a little frustrated with my hair and it reminds me of a time when I was the most frustrated with the person that was doing my hair.Read More
I'm just gonna come out an say it: Brush cleaning is a pain in the ass! (Pardon Ma Franch). It's one of the necessary evils of wearing makeup. That and trying to get the attention of the self-absorbed sales girl at the MAC counter.
I ordered an (immitation) Brush Egg from Amazon hoping to make the cleaning process a little less excruciating. Spoiler: It does!Read More
My inspiration for this manicure came from Nicole of Young Wild and Polished who made a video devoted to this method which basically involves stripping the brush from as much polish as possible and using whatever's left on the brush to make in consistent streaks on the nail.Read More
There are days when I'm running late and I get intimidated by the shade selection and versatility of larger palettes. The larger the palette, the more options you have. In cases like this just remember: Less is best.Read More
I stumbled onto these Palladio 'Crushed' Metallic shadows in a new product display at Ulta and was kind of shocked.
I remember the days whenemilynoel83 from Beauty Broadcast would sing the praises of certain Palladio products including the Oil Absorbing Rice Paper Tissues as well as the Oil Absorbing Rice Paper Powder.
As long as I've known of this brand's existence (about 4-5 years) I don't recall them ever releasing anything new, and definitely nothing excitingRead More
I'm trying to get in the habit of familiarizing myself with what's already in my collection. Not only should this process give me a better understanding of what I still love and what I can probably do without, but it's also something I should do when I'm between paychecks. Hey, I'm not ballin' enough to doa Hump Day Haul every week.
The Products Include:Read More
Even though February is the shortest month of the year, it felt like it dragged on forever!
After Valentine's Day came and went it felt like I had nothing else to look forward to. However, thereis a very important event coming up in March … The Season Four Premier of The Americans!Read More
If you've spent any amount of time on this blog you might know that even though I do appreciate nail art, I'm not very good at it. Like, at all.Then I saw some kind of nail art genius do these shatter nails on instagram and I died! Then I told myself "Hey, you can't do these shatter nails if you're dead." Talk about unfinished business.Read More
My skin is on the drier side and as you can imagine, winter is a dry-skinned girl’s worst nightmare.
During this time of year exfoliation and hydration are key. The scrubs I use are okay, but I needed something gentle enough to use more consistently.
Then I remembered that yogurt masks are a thing.Read More
When I first saw the Nude Necessities palette on Instagram, my heart skipped a beat.
There are some people that might say “Are you kidding me? Another neutral palette?”
That's how you know they're not a true beauty enthusiast. If they were, they would know that, when it comes to neutral eyeshadow palettes, there's always room for improvement. Formula, shade selection, price point. You get the idea.Read More
I apologize that Mani Monday got off to a ridiculously late start. I guess that’s what happens when you’re a chronic procrastinator. But I still wanted to share a festive Valentine’s Day - inspired manicure for your enjoyment.Read More
If you're anything like me, you can't contain the fact that you're a Beauty junkie. Always obsessing over the latest or brow pomade. Willing to give an in depth instructional on strobing to any poor soil willing to listen. Nope, just me?Read More
It’s that time of the month…
It’s time for January Favorites!
Didn’t you hate that that year and a half when everyone on YouTube would open their monthly favorites video with that statement? Or was it just me?
As you can probably tell from all of the skincare posts this month, January usually gives me a hard time in that department. Hydration and exfoliation have been constant themes all month long. However, this past week I finally seemed to get it under control. These are some of the products I love in January:Read More
This is the third week of Skincare Sunday ya’ll! I’m kind of on a roll. NBD.
I’m pretty much using the same products I’ve been using over the last two weeks and didn’t want to bore anyone by being repetitive AF. I thought i’d show you a wishlist of skincare products that i’d love to try! You know, one of these days.
Just so that you know, most of these products are going to be of the high end persuasion. Don’t hate me. That’s what makes this a wishlistRead More
It’s been a hot minute since the last manicure I posted. The truth is I’ve been completely uninspired to do my nails. I’m kind of in a funk, and that’s a problem.
Fortunately I came across a new gel polish formula from Wet n Wild. I’ve always been a fan of the Megalast formula because: the brush is the ideal width to be able to cover a large surface area with minimal streakage, most shades are opaque in one coat, it dries in a decent amount of time and they’re only $1.99.
Even though Skincare Sundays started out as a way to salvage a weekend trapped indoors, I’ve decided to keep up with it.
This week I picked up a new foundation and concealer with those Sephora Gift Cards I mentioned earlier. Both the foundation and concealer are products I was really excited about but they applied horribly! The foundation went on patchy and the concealer accentuated the fine lines under my eyes and started creasing! Everyone raves about these products (which I will mention in a haul or review at some point in time) and I thought I needed to give them a second chance when my skin isn’t dry and flaky AF; because that’s only fair.Read More
