Rosy Eyes

When I saw the beautiful wine-toned lids at BCBG Max Azria at NYFW Fall 2014, I knew I had to get this look into my life! More particularly, onto my eyeballs. If you have green, blue, or grayish-green eyes like mine (I call them “dirty green”), a burgundy color is like kryptonite. I used my trusty […]

Festival Look with Urban Decay Electric Palette

It is as though the Urban Decay gods convened to create a majestical festival-ready palette just for me! If you know me well, or even just a little, you probably know that I love music festivals about as much as I love makeup! One of my favorite parts of the festival experience is creating colorful, avant garde […]

Don’t blush, this post is about the quintessential nude lip and how to find the right shade for your skin tone! I want to first talk about what a “nude” lip really means.

Orange Lips

Do you remember the Parks and Recreation episode where Andy is going through all of his band’s previous names? Two of my favorites were definitely “nothing rhymes with orange” and “everything rhymes with orange.” I would have to agree, on both accounts. I absolutely love orange, and seeing it on lips for spring makes me […]

Golden Eye

The Black Keys sang of “Gold on the Ceiling” but I’m loving it on my eye balls. We saw gold on models’ lids at Altuzarra and Jason Wu at NYFW Fall 2014. I’ve always loved gold for the way it picks up flecks of color in your iris. You can wear a golden eye without […]

Spring Blushes

Happy first day of spring! Whatevs, amiright?! I don’t know about where you live, but if this is spring, well the Midwest should be ashamed of itself. Personally, I’m embarrassed for it. But I digress. Whenever spring decides to show herself, I bet she’ll be wearing a fabulous blush. Blush is one of my favorite products, […]

Welcome to another installment of Skincare Sunday! I definitely hear that yelled in the monster truck voice: SUNDAY, SUNDAY, SUNDAY! Have you heard of konjac sponges? They’re kind of hot right now.
