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. My favorite primers are the ones that work as a primer should and also provide some skincare benefits. I like to apply primer over my spf and other hydrating skin products after a wash my face. 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 […]

Sometimes, Simplicity is Best

Simplicity is something that I feel we’re always chasing in some area of our lives. One area for me is my beauty drawer. Does anyone else become overwhelmed by the amount of makeup they own? Sometimes I stare into my makeup drawers and I just can’t manage to decide what to put on my face. For those mornings, and most mornings honestly, I stick to my tried and true multi-use products! I think a few good products are all you need to create a simple, elegant, everyday makeup look. These are also great to take with you on a trip! […]

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 […]

Review: Antonym Cosmetics Baked Blush in Peach

I firmly believe one can never have enough blush. It is the beauty object of my affection. It is the beauty item that piques my interest the most every season. Something about blush makes your face come alive, adds a touch of freshness, and a hint of sweetness that can’t be achieved with other beauty items. Brows frame the face, a good lip color adds excitement, lashes add a little flirtiness, but blush adds life. There are so many different shades and finishes to choose from. You’ve got every shade of pink and red and brown to match every look […]

Review: Gressa Minimalist Serum Foundation

Gressa Minimalist Serum Foundation Gressa Minimalist Serum Foundation is your foundation if you’re looking for a lightweight, buttery smooth, satin finish foundation that has skin-loving properties. I adore the finish and how it glides onto my skin. By the end of the day, my skin is actually amazing and feels and looks even better than when I woke up thanks to their amazing blend of oils and minerals. My shade is in 3.5, which is a medium neutral shade. The foundation can be applied for light coverage and buildable up to medium coverage very comfortably. I love applying it with […]
