My Fave Spring Trends

1. Monochromatic everything, especially peachy tones I've always been down for monochromatic looks, especially black on black on black or gray on gray on gray, but I'm seriously digging these lighter hues (ESPECIALLY peach) for this season in everything: makeup, clothes, hair, etc. When done consciously and carefully, it looks drop-dead gorgeous. 2. Grungy florals...

Beauty Inside: Your Naked Face

Beauty Inside is a series about the part of beauty we rarely see; the stuff inside that sometimes destroys us or builds us up, the mental and the anatomical. This is below the clothes, the mirrors, the makeup, the facade social media and the Internet can sometimes build, even when we have all the best...

Brush Cleaning 101

It's something everyone knows they HAVE to do, but HATES doing. Yup, I'm talking brush cleaning. But unless you want some crazy face infection or your makeup to get wonkier and wonkier looking, you gotta make it happen. It's hard to maintain a schedule, but if you can designate a time and day in the...

Lately…

Lately, the words haven't been coming as easily. Lately, my ideas that have come are bigger than what I can accomplish alone with what I have without taking time to make them quality. Lately, life has been busy and better than daydreaming, so I've been in the moment. Lately, I've been thinking big picture instead...

But unless you want some crazy face infection or your makeup to get wonkier and wonkier looking, you gotta make it happen. It's hard to maintain a schedule, but if you can designate a time and day in the week to do it, that would be optimal. Let me put it this way: every...

Lately, life has been busy and better than daydreaming, so I've been in the moment. Lately, I've been thinking big picture instead of day-to-day, which means larger branding things y'all won't see for a while. But lately,...

February Favorites

A lot of my February beauty routine was merely repeating steps from January because they are simple, fast, and work with the season. But after a couple of hauls, I found these babies to be my most used of February! + Colourpop Aquarius Lip Gloss >> My go-to lip this month because my lips have been SO dry, and as I've discussed before, this is the most natural color to...

Review: Brush Me! Teeth Whitening Paste

If you know me, you know I love my coffee. I stay living that Venti life... ya know? So I need a little help keeping my teeth white because STAIN CITY awaits otherwise. I also don't have perfect teeth (which I actually like), so the whiter they are, the more I can feel comfortable with those little, fun imperfections. I was actually on the market for a new whitening product,...

THAT Setting Powder

The holy grail. The one and only. The queen herself: Laura Mercier's Translucent Loose Setting Powder. [caption id="attachment_4224" align="alignnone" width="584"] #HowDoYouTLSP #contest @influenster @lauramercier[/caption] I've explained this product to people so many ways, but since Influenster and Laura Mercier sent me a complimentary full-size of my FAVE setting powder, I figured now was the best time to really break it down and talk to y'all about how I TLSP. (#HowDoYouTLSP...

Beauty Evolution

When I was a little girl, I was acutely unaware of makeup. My mom had very little, and she taught her girls to embrace their natural beauty (like our huge brows). One of us (me) may have ignored that brow thing in high school like a fool, but I've come back to my senses in adulthood. It wasn't until high school, really, that I even wore makeup. I wore essentially...

New Product Reviews, Vol. I

+ Maybelline The Colossal Big Shot Mascara >> When I tried this, I immediately thought of how much coverage and volume I got with one coat. When I got back around to looking at the packaging, I laughed  because the TOP tag line is "Fully Loaded Volume in One Coat." Basically, they nailed it. It also has an incredibly unique wand shape that makes it easy to get your lashes...
