Peter Thomas Roth Acne-Clear Invisible Dots Review

Peter Thomas Roth Acne-Clear Invisible Dots

Sundays are all about skincare and Peter Thomas Roth is giving me the skin fix of a lifetime. After a fun weekend in LA, my skin was beginning to suffer a bit. Nothing too major. Just the annoying rash of tiny bumps all over–like an allergic reaction or something. I haven’t been using anything new lately but I drank a lot more alcohol and indulged in a ton of greasy food and loads of carbs everyday while on vacation and I think my skin is starting to feel the effects of it. Don’t you hate that?

Ipsy Generation Beauty LA 2016 Round Up

Gen Beauty LA 2016 Swag Bags

If I had to sum up this year’s Ipsy Generation Beauty LA in one word it would be, “Whoa!” It was a ton of fun but boy was it overwhelming! This was my first time ever hitting a beauty conference so when I received an email for an exclusive invite to hit Gen Beauty LA this year I nearly jumped out of my skin. Just the thought of rubbing elbows with some of the most popular beauty bloggers and vloggers had my stomach doing backflips. It was all so new to me!

Although I invited my BFFs to journey to LA with me, the ticket excluded a plus one so I showed up solo–like a deer in headlights. LA is huge and the venue where the conference took place was so confusing that I showed up super late. So late that I missed my favorite YouTuber, MakeupShayla. * cue the Kim Kardashian cry face and violins *

Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water Review

Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water

When I actually have enough time to sit in the mirror and lay out a full face of makeup it’s pure bliss! It’s just so much fun whipping up creative eye looks, highlighting and contouring, popping on a little blush and lots of highlight. It really puts me in the zone. Ironically, though, the best part about getting all dolled up is taking it all off at the end of the day and hopping in the sack. Ahhhh, sweet relief!

Urban Decay Brightening & Tightening Complexion Primer Potion Review

Urban Decay Brightening & Tightening Complexion Primer Potion

Ahh, primer. I remember when I used to think that primer was completely unnecessary but now I can’t live without it. Whether you’re dry or oily, primer is an absolute must because it helps your makeup glide on like butter, last longer and just generally look better. There’s a lot of great primers out there but my current fave is theUrban Decay Brightening & Tightening Complexion Primer Potion.

Ulta Glowing Skin Haul

Ulta Glowing Skin Haul

I love makeup as much as the next girl but the older I get and the more I learn about skincare, the more I fall in love with it. A beat face is always eye catching but what truly sets it off is a clear, glowing complexion. Because what good is beautiful art painted on a canvas that’s dull and lackluster?

That’s why I’m loving that January is Glowing Skin month at Ulta. Winter can wreak havoc on skin so it’s important to arm yourself with the essentials to fight those winter skin blues so all your new makeup from Christmas can go on smoothly and help you look even more flawless.

Prestige Skincare Now Available at CVS!

CVS Prestige Skincare: Murad, Peter Thomas Roth, Dermalogica, Bare Minerals, Bliss, Philosophy

I used to live at CVS last year when I discovered all of the perks (and coupons) of joining their Beauty Club. Then I started working for Bobbi Brown and found myself binging on all of the high end beauty I was surrounded by 5 days a week. I still like to pop into to CVS every once in a while though and during my latest trip I was left with my mouth hanging open when I walked through the skincare aisle.
