Between August 13 – 17, I was at an incredibly wonderful space called Camp Gritty (blog post about Camp to come!) One of the nights was a giant dance party, and beforehand we got to get makeup-ready with total sweetheart and talented makeup artist Rosalina Young. You probably know her as ahitsrosa on Instagram and YouTube. She’s been on my favorite makeup artists and inspiration for years (you can see a look I did inspired by her here!), and being able to get ready with her was such a cool experience!
Sugarpill and Melt Cosmetics sponsored the party, and because of that we got to walk away with a pink eyeshadow and a lipstick! I chose Melt Cosmetics Blow as my lipstick and I based my makeup look around that lipstick. Learn how I achieved this look down below!
It’s February empties time, which means me explaining my trash! Does anyone else think this concept is weird yet oddly satisfying? Looking at all the empties I’m accumulated during the month makes me feel better about my purchasing habits. It also makes me feel accomplished that I used up an entire product. Read what I thought about all these products down below!
For a while, it seemed like no one on YouTube could stop talking about the NYX Total Control Drop Foundation. Almost every channel I follow would post a first impressions using this drugstore foundation. I’ve passed on it multiple times at Ulta, but after the third time, it was time to buy a bottle for myself and try it out.
I miss colorful makeup. I’ve said it: I hate being an adult that can’t wear rainbow eyeshadow to work. I think I took college for granted. Why didn’t I see that it was the only time I could get away with wearing colorful, vibrant eyeshadow everyday? Two weeks ago I reviewed the Urban Decay Full Spectrum palette, and after that, I got some serious craving for color. I prefer cooler colors like green, blue and purple on my eyes, so I went to my comfort colors. Find out how I got this look down below!
After a long time of not wearing makeup on a daily basis, it feels nice to finally wear proper makeup. I’ve been doing basic mascara and foundation for the past month since I haven’t really been anywhere. But now that I’m working full-time and working some seasonal hours, I’m wearing a full face again and I’m enjoying it. For this look I decided to use MAC Captive, a lipstick I featured in my top 5 lipsticks for winter. Find out how I got this look down below!
For most people winter means berry reds and dark purples. But not for me! While reds do make an appearance during the holiday season, I mostly wear nudes, grays and berries in the winter. Today I’m sharing my top 5 lipsticks for winter. Check them out!
I was cleaning out my makeup stash the past few weeks and took a look at what I was using and what I haven’t touched in years. I got to some items that were easy to toss or giveaway and some were harder. I realized that there were a select few items in my collection that I didn’t know how I would do my makeup without them. Today I thought I would share them with you! While a lot of these will end up in my yearly favorites (or already have,) sometimes it’s nice to revisit those products that always work.
Today I’ve got my September empties! I used up a ton of skincare last month (like, a ton of sheet masks) and I’m excited to share my experience with them. Check out my mini reviews down below!
Usually I like to post my favorites and empties at the end of the month, but September got the best of me. Although I didn’t wear a ton of makeup this month, I had some standout favorites that made the few times I did wear makeup easier. I also tried out a lot of NYX products, so it’s no surprise that most of my favorites are NYX products!
I was looking through old posts and noticed that I did a post in the spring about my favorite lipsticks for that season. I then realized I didn’t do one for summer. So I’m bringing back this series with a post all about my favorite fall lipsticks!
