Peachy Spring Makeup Tutorial

Spring is the loveliest time of year. It’s my favorite. I love the flowering trees, birds singing in the morning, taking my cats onto the deck and then screaming at one of them when he tries to wiggle under the rails. Damn it, MILES! Spring time makes me think of colors like peach, pink and […]

Best Eyeshadows for Green Eyes

They say jealousy is a green-eyed monster, but there’s nothing monstrous about green eyes! Take it from me-I’m a member of the green eye club myself! There are a few variations-those with cooler gray-green eyes like me and those with more olive golden-green eyes. My mom has the latter. Jelly. The following colors work for all shades of […]

Pixi Glow Mist Review

If a product mentions the word “glow,” I’m already in the checkout line. Such was the case with the Pixi Glow Mist. I mean, just look at it. So did the Glow Mist live up to it’s name? Read on… I thought I’d be maxing this out as a setting spray but turns out, I love it […]

Jigga what? Micellar who? Just when you think you have all your beauty terminology down, a new buzzword pops up and you’re like, “hold up, what?” Micellar waters are not new, but new to the mass market.

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Redness Correcting Creme

Sometimes I’ll start writing a review in my head before I’ve even tried the product, based on first impressions and overall judging a book by it’s cover. It Cosmetics Bye Bye Redness Correcting Creme had me like, “with it’s beige shade, there’s no way it could cover paler girls’ redness! It’s not a true color correcting cream […]

What I’m Loving Lately

1. Nyx Cosmetics Intense Butter Gloss in ‘Berry Struedel’ I’d been searching for a true purple lip color and wasn’t wanting to spend a ton since I mean, it’s not a color you wear just everyday. This is spot-freaking-on. It’s mega-pigmented and feels great. Only thing I don’t love is that it tends to make my teeth look […]

You Need Retinol

When the word retinol is dropped with reference to skincare products, I pretty much turn into that emoji with hearts for eyes. I’ve raved about it for a few years now and with good reason. Retinol is one of the proven ingredients that dermatologists agree fights aging. Not only that, but it combats breakouts and prevents […]

Behind the Bride: Danette

When I met Danette, I liked her right away. You know those awesome people? I love doing makeup for that reason. I end up making new friends and enjoying the process that much more. Danette doesn’t wear a lot of makeup everyday and wanted a look that was natural but special. I wanted to create a soft, […]
