Top 5 Must-Haves from Bite Beauty

We are biased towards Bite Beauty and that’s because every single one of their products has proven to be absolutely amazing. From the different formulas, wear time, shade selection, comfort, packaging, and price point, Bite Beauty really knows what they’re doing when it comes to lips. Toronto-based Bite Beauty is cruelty-free while claiming that their ingredients are good enough to eat. We understand that we all have different food preferences, but let’s stop at eating lipstick. The ingredients, as Teri would say, are not that bad, and she loves several shades and formulation from the brand. We understand that this […]

How to Quietly Transition Loved Ones to Green Beauty Through Holiday Gifts

Several food blogs and savvy moms talk about ways to sneak veggies and healthier ingredients into things like cookies and muffins. I wondered how I could apply the same idea to green beauty to family and friends. My strategy for tackling this idea is by introducing my friends and family to clean beauty by giving it as a gift! The trick here is to choose the right kind of products to give so that the recipient feels like it’s something fun and thoughtful rather than the pressure and judgment from you. And honestly, I believe that everyone has the right […]

Review: Suntegrity 5-in-1 Tinted Sunscreen SPF 30

Sunscreen is not an option these days, it’s a necessity. With some skin cancers that are probably preventative (nothing is for certain, but let’s not chance it), we want to do everything we can to protect the biggest organ on our bodies, our skin. There are a myriad number of sunscreen products, so I urge you to use the one that works for you, your family, and budget. If you’ve ever suffered sunburn or have very sensitive skin, you know that the sun’s rays shouldn’t be toyed with at any cost. My favorite types of SPF protected has tint so […]

Review: 100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Pretty Naked Palette

An everyday go-to makeup palette is essential for the efficient, streamlined look. Something with the basic eyeshadows and pretty blush can go a long way. Not only perfect for daily looks but critical for travel. Palettes are another one of my weakness because I love having a lot of variety at my fingertips in one cute package. It’s also interesting to see how creative brands can get with their palette configurations and what they decide to incorporate. I love all powder or all cream palettes. The ones with mixed creams and shadows make my OCD worry about the powders mixing […]

Review: Juice Beauty Phyto Pigments Illuminating Primer

A great primer is essential to flawless makeup application. Primers help smooth out the skin’s texture and helps your base product adhere to your skin much better.

Juice Beauty Phyto Pigments Illuminating Primer If you love a glowing and radiant complexion, then the Juice Beauty Illuminating Primer is the perfect prep before foundation. It doesn’t feel sticky, oily, heavy or glittery, it imparts the […]

Review: Lauren B Beauty Nail Polish

Nail polish is one of the most fun beauty products because there are a million colors and it’s pretty much instant gratification if you want a quick change. I find that a dash of polish on your nails helps spruces up any outfit and adds a classic twist when you need it. These days, you can find amazing polish with great textures, cement-level staying power, rivals the sun in shine, and there’s no shortage of finishes. My favorites are usually the creamy shades but sometimes I’ll dabble in glitter because we all need to have jazz hands! Lauren B Beauty […]

Top 5 Organic At-Home Spa Essentials

Every change in season feels like a good time to soak in a nice bath and unwind. With fall, the days are getting shorter and that can impact our well-being when the nights are that much longer.

We’ve compiled our all-time favorite at-home spa essentials to help us transition into fall so much easier. Let’s take a […]

Sexy Fall Beauty Look

Fall is here and nothing is better than watching the leaves turn color with a sweet mug of PSL (all of the PSL). I also love fall for the lush sweaters, being all around cozy, and the sultry beauty looks especially with darker lip colors that I can finally play with. They always say that you can wear darker colors in the summer and spring, but it just doesn’t have the same effect. It’s like watching leaves falling and wearing a big sweater in the summer. I had so much fun creating this sultry, smokey, yet clean and classic look […]
