It’s another Camp Gritty makeup look! I spent way more time and effort on my makeup this year than last year. Camp is such a fun and free space to express myself, so why wouldn’t I take advantage of that? I never get to wear colorful makeup in my everyday life so it was fun to try something new! Click below to read more about this Camp Gritty makeup look and how to achieve it!
Every now and then I like to sit down and write a list of what posts I’d like to write in the future. My monthly favorites are almost always on that list, but for some reason or another I can never get myself to reflect on my past month and figure out what products I loved the most. After seeing a few YouTube videos of people sharing their favorites, I started to think about what I truly loved last month. After much though, I present to you my September favorites.Read more
After having so much fun at Camp Gritty last year, of course I had to travel once more to the woods of Tennessee to experience Camp again. I didn’t think Camp could get any better than what it was last year, but this year blew me away with the activities and attention given to every detail.
The dance party not only was one of my favorite activities, but one of my favorite activities to get ready for! One of the actual planned activities was getting ready for the party with makeup, hair and tons of glitter. My look last year was obnoxiously green, so I chose a different color to focus on this year: pink!

Micellar water is one of my favorite makeup innovations in the past few years. It removes stubborn eye makeup without oil, it fixes makeup mistakes without leaving behind a residue and it doesn’t burn your eyes or skin like some eye makeup removers do. Since going vegan in the beginning of the year, I’ve had to switch up my skincare routine to cruelty-free and vegan products. Pacifica has a ton of micellar waters, but this was available when I went to Target. How does the Pacifica Micellar Cleansing Tonic stand up against my favorite micellar waters? Read below!
It’s been a hot while since a favorites post! Quite frankly, I wasn’t into these posts anymore. It seemed like a chore to gather favorites and at one point I was gathering random things to use in these posts. That’s not what a good blogger does! But after a friend told me that they missed my favorite posts I thought I would bring them back. Check out my May Favorites Feat. Milk Makeup products!
One of my favorite palettes to come out as of late is the Urban Decay Moondust palette. It’s everything I love: Urban Decay, glitter and color. I’d been wanting to expand my Moondust collection, and this palette seemed like the best way to do it! I did this look a while ago, but I’m just getting to writing about it. This look was probably the easiest and fastest look to create yet it has a punch to it. Find out how I made this Urban Decay Moondust palette look down below!
I’m reviewing something super cool today. This lipstick has been all over the Internet lately and I totally bought into the hype. The Ciate Glitter Flip lipstick is a matte liquid lipstick that transforms into a metallic, glittery lipstick by pressing your lips together. It’s innovative, something we’ve never seen before and totally cool! Check out my Ciate Glitter Flip review down below!
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!
I’ve had the picture for this look edited and ready since my last rainbow eye makeup look, but I never got around to posting about it. Right when I posted that look, I started a retail job that unfortunately didn’t pan out. Now that I have the time again, let’s start writing again!
Today I’m sharing this Green and Glitter Underliner look. This is extremely similar to the Pink Underliner look I did back in June, but this time it’s green! Underliner is my favorite way to incorporate color into my eye makeup without looking overly done or dramatic. Check out how to get this Green and Glitter Underliner look down below!
June is National Gay Pride month, and to celebrate I went down to New York to join my friends in watching the NYC Gay Pride Parade. Of course I was excited to support my friends and cheer on those who were marching, but I think I was most excited to do some colorful makeup. While on the weekends I like to get creative and rock some colorful makeup, rainbow eyes are just too bold for getting groceries. I created this Gay Pride makeup using Sugarpill Cosmetics, an indie brand that drag queens and bright makeup lovers alike love to use. Learn how to get my Gay Pride makeup down below!
