You know what I love about having brown eyes? So many different colors look great with them! I’ve rocked a lot of different colors but I always keep my blues and greens in rotation. There’s just something about them that makes brown eyes pop! I own quite a few green eyeliners but none of them make my eyes look as sultry as the Chanel Black Jade Le Crayon Kohl Intense Eye Pencil. Whew! That’s a really long name but bear with me!


Chanel Blending Foundation Brush #7 Review

Building a brush collection is like building an army. You want to pick the most efficient soldiers who can get the job done and hold up well over the years. I’m no stranger to affordable brushes but it’s good to splurge on the staples every now and then. Some higher end brands use more expensive materials and techniques to ensure that your favorite brush lasts you a lifetime. So wouldn’t you rather arm yourself with tools that’ll stick around?


Covergirl Bombshell Lip Perfection Lipstick Review

I’m such a MAC girl! I don’t think I could ever get tired of MAC but it’s still nice to venture out from time to time. I’ve been exploring a few new brands this year and you know what? A lot of them are pretty on par with MAC (or even better) and sometimes at a fraction of the cost! Take the Covergirl Bombshell Lip Perfection Lipstick for instance. It’s creamy, pigmented and long lasting all for under $10!


Milani Coral Crush Brilliant Shine Lip Gloss Review

Remember those lip glosses with the ball applicator? I used to be obsessed with them! They were super shiny, thick and sticky but I loved slathering them all over my lips when I was a little girl. Those were the days! I’ve grown into quite the lipstick addict but sometimes I like to get back to my girlish gloss days. There’s just something about a glossy pout that I can’t let go!


Marc Jacobs Jazz(Berry) Highliner Gel Crayon Review

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could pause time to do our makeup? Don’t get me wrong. I’m not trying to spend hours at my vanity but sometimes I do wish I could toss on an eyeshadow or two without rush. A girl can dream! Since we haven’t cracked the time pausing just yet I’ve been getting cozy with my bold eyeliner stash for a splash of color. I’m usually rocking blues or greens but the Marc Jacobs Jazz(Berry) Highliner Gel Crayon has me singing a different tune lately. Check it out!


Summer Skincare Routine

Summer is such a beautiful time of year! It’s also the season of skin so I’m making sure to keep my skin looking nice and healthy! The focus this summer (well, every summer!) is on clear, glowing skin so I’ve been using products loaded with lightweight moisture.


CVS Hauling!

Signing up for the CVS Beauty Club has definitely increased my drugstore makeup stash and it’s easy to see. I’m always receiving coupons! I’ve passed up a handful of 20-25% off emails but when I noticed a 30% off offer I jumped on it. I’ve had my eye on a few things so I thought it was the perfect time to use up my Extra Care bucks!

It’s a been a long time since I’ve talked about my hair journey but I promise you’re not missing much! My hair is still growing nicely and chugging slowly towards waist length. I really can’t wait to reach my goal! There has been a lot of different things that have contributed to my healthy hair growth like deep conditioning, co-washing and air drying. However, simply keeping my hair moisturized has worked wonders!


MAC Moody Blooms Inspired Eye Look

Many MAC collections have come and gone this year but Moody Blooms seems to be the one that inspires me the most. It’s just something about those sultry jewel tones! Thanks to some incredible will power I only ended up with a blush and fluidline. The eyeshadows were so beautiful and tempting but I noticed I have similar colors in my stash. I figured I’d whip up a quick Moody Blooms inspired look to have a little fun and keep me from ordering more stuff. Hopefully this works!


MAC In Extreme Dimension Lash Review

My eyes are easily my favorite facial feature so I love playing them up with bold colors, sexy cat eyes and lots of dramatic falsies. I’ve never been much of a mascara kind of gal because my lashes are super short so I could never quite get the length and volume I wanted with mascaras. I don’t think I’ll ever find a mascara that will make me retire my beloved falsies but the MAC In Extreme Dimension Lash is a great start!
