On Wednesdays We Wear Pink!

Bobbi Brown Desert Pink Blush + Sunset Pink Shimmer Brick

Ready for some pink? Of course you are you girly girl you! I don’t know about you but I could wear pink all the time. Pink makeup makes me feel so feminine and flirty. Or bold and fun. Whatever I’m in the mood for. Pink is an incredibly versatile color that anyone can pull off whether it’s on the lips, nails, or cheeks. This week, I decided to celebrate my love for pink with a killer pink cheek combo that’s perfect for spring and summer.

NARS Lovejoy Blush Review

NARS Lovejoy Blush

Most hardcore makeup lovers can’t get enough of blush but it seems that a lot of dark skin divas aren’t convinced that blush is where it’s at. I get it. Finding the perfect blush to compliment brown skin can be tricky. A lot of brands cater to lighter skin tones with pale pinks and corals that look ashy and washed out on brown skin. All hope isn’t lost though! Some brands create blushes with all skin tones in mind. Like NARS. NARS is king when it comes to high end blushes for brown skin because there’s a huge color range with shades that are designed to give us brown skin beauties the perfect flush.

Clinique All About Eyes Review

Clinique All About Eyes

Dry eyes can be a huge pain in the butt. Especially if you wear makeup. Dry eyes can make concealer look cakey, crease and look, well, dry. I’ve struggled with my dry eyes quite a bit but things started to get better as I experimented with eye creams. I’ve only tried a couple of them so far with good results but it seems that I might have just found a new favorite in the Clinique All About Eyes eye cream. I’ve been using the Clinique All About Eyes cream for over a month now and I’m rather impressed with how well it hydrates and refreshes my parched eyes.

It Cosmetics Superhero Mascara Review

It Cosmetics Superhero Mascara

Finding a good mascara can be a challenging feat but the new It Cosmetics Superhero Mascara is definitely making life a little easier for makeup junkies. I think we can all agree that long, luscious full lashes are every gal’s dream but that false lash effect isn’t always achievable without actually applying a glamorous pair of falsies. However, It Cosmetics is getting us one step closer to the lashes we dream about with the new Superhero Mascara formulated with Elastic Stretch Technology to boost volume, add length and condition lashes with every coat. Sounds fancy, right?

On Wednesdays We Wear Pink!

Dior Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet Perfume

Wednesday is all about feeling girly in pink here in Fancieland so this week I’m celebrating with one of my favorite pink perfumes: Dior Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet. If the alluring Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet looks familiar to you it’s probably because I’ve featured it before for Pink Wednesday. I hate to be redundant when there’s so many different ways to rock pink but spritzing on a little Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet is one of my favorite ways to celebrate pink during spring. Dior has done such a beautiful job creating Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet that I find myself whipping it out every year when spring rolls around.

My Secret Weapons for Brighter, More Even Skin

Murad Essential-C Cleanser, Pixi Glow Tonic Exfoliating Toner, Murad Essential-C Day Moisture

Fighting those dreadful signs of aging is definitely high up on the skincare priority list but achieving a brighter, more even complexion is certainly right behind it! The only thing more annoying than dealing with fine lines, dullness and wrinkles is an uneven complexion marked with dark spots. Hyper-pigmentation (or dark spots) are common under the eyes, around the mouth and forehead for many people–myself included. For years, I’ve pretty much accepted the fact that dark spots were just a way of life because I had no idea that there was a way to diminish them. Boy was I wrong!

Through the years, I’ve been learning a ton more about skincare and I was shocked to learn how a simple tweak in your routine could transform the appearance and texture of skin. Even when it comes to dark spots. Hyper-pigmentation isn’t a skincare struggle we’re faced to deal with. It’s actually easy to treat and correct with the right products and lots of persistence. Less than a year ago, I introduced 3 new products to my skincare routine just to see what they were all about. After a few weeks of consistently using them I started realize a difference in the appearance of my skin. Not only was my complexion visibly brighter and more radiant but my dark spots were also beginning to fade leaving my skin looking more even and healthy. It would be totally selfish of me not to share my skincare secrets with you so I’m going to walk you through exactly how I achieved a brighter, more even complexion using my 3 secret weapons.

Bobbi Brown Eye Blender Brush

If there was one thing I learned from my quick stint with Bobbi Brown it’s that she makes some amazing quality makeup. There’s a reason why Bobbi Brown is a household name all over the globe. That woman really knows her stuff! From her massive foundation range to her stunning Shimmer Bricks, Bobbi Brown has managed to create a quite impressive makeup line with a huge following that’s greatly deserved. I didn’t know too much about Bobbi Brown products before I worked there but I quickly discovered why everyone was so crazy about them. Especially her makeup brushes.

After a few random blizzards here and there, it’s finally sunshines and smiles here in Michigan so I was ready to make my nails look spring ready with a little yellow and Hello Kitty. Yes, I’m still obsessing over the OPI Hello Kitty Collection. You’ll have to bare with me here because it’ll probably be a few more weeks before I finally shake my Hello Kitty fever. If I ever do.
