No-Makeup Makeup for Summer

Happy Summer, everyone, and this means no-makeup makeup until Fall! It’s late May and I’m already sweating the moment that I step outside!

Brand Spotlight: Era Organics

We are so excited to bring you another Brand Spotlight with Era Organics.

Review: Honest Beauty Contour Kit + Tutorial

  We love contouring, all day everyday. Call us a little over-the-top, but adding a little extra definition (especially when wearing a medium/full coverage foundation that ultimately eliminates the dimensions of the face), is a staple in our makeup routine. The new Honest Beauty Contour Kit (retail $34) is a great palette for contour’ers of any skill level, thanks to its 2 dark matte contour shades + 1 shimmer highlighter. The cream formulas are easy to blend, and you can even use just your fingers to apply. Click to shop Honest Beauty!
