Do you want to know what my least favorite thing about beauty and makeup is…? There are so many “rules”. Like, a lot of them. Blondes should wear this…. That skin tone requires that… You’re too pale for that color… Your face is too round for that cut… You guys…I could quite literally go on and on for days reciting every rule that has ever been thrown at me in regard to what I should wear & when I should… Read more »

I’m in LOVE with all things NAKED! Damn Urban Decay for making something so wonderful and naming it something so awkward. In all seriousness, UD really outdid themselves with the Naked 3 Palett. The colors, the presentation and the brush (double ended) are all equal parts unique and yet on trend. That really should be UD’s motto if you ask me! This is my current “go-to” look from the palett. It’s neutral and yet a little bit glam!    Be… Read more »

I don’t want to brag…but it is kind of a well known fact that I have one of the most beautiful groups of friends…ever! I know I may be biased…but it’s true! Family, co-workers, pseudo strangers stalking my Facebook profile…lots of different people have brought it to my attention and I have to agree…I just have an extremely attractive set of gal pals. This is good news for me because one of them asked me to do their makeup for… Read more »

This is a continuance of the series, A Guide to Sephora, you can see the introduction here! If you walk into Sephora unprepared…2 things are very likely to happen. 1.

I have been known to fret just a bit too much over my physical appearance; weight, makeup, hair, etc… So, when I woke up extremely tired the other morning; groggy, grumpy and confused from my overnight allergy meds and too much antihistamine…I decided I just didn’t have it in me. I didn’t want to wash my hair, I didn’t want to carefully and painstakingly apply my makeup, eye shadow and eye liner. I wanted something quick, fresh and easy. After… Read more »

I will never forget the first time I stepped inside of a Sephora store. I was 14…extremely overweight and incredibly awkward and….I was with my parents. We were visiting Las Vegas together (who takes a 14-year-old to Las Vegas??) and I spotted the classic black and white storefront from almost a mile away. I remember sounding out the strange name and being completely clueless as to what could possibly be inside…but I knew I had to go in there. At… Read more »

During my 20 month engagement…lol….I began a quest to develop the perfect skin care routine. I was certain that if I had to walk down the aisle with acne I would just lose my shit…so vain, I know. Lucky for me…about 5 months from the big day I seemed to have found the perfect fit. Expensive & time consuming…but extremely effective. Just recently while I was sitting in my hair stylists chair she gushed about the quality of my complexion… Read more »
