MOTD - Bold Lips + Lashes

Hi guys! I wanted to do a bold Spring/Summer look today. If you've followed me for a while, you'll almost always see me in a nude, or peachy lip color, so I opted for a cool undertone, bright pink to push myself out of my box. I ended up putting on some semi-spiky lashes to tie the look together. What do you think, would you rock this look for upcoming Spring/Summer seasons?

Sephora / MAC Makeup Haul - Video

First, I want to apologize for the little disappearing act I've pulled the last few weeks. I've made a few changes in my life and in return, got a little behind on the blogging front. Butttt, I'm hoping I can make it up to you today. For the last several months I have been considering doing YouTube videos again and I finally made room in my life to do it (if you follow me on social media, you probably know this). Today I'm talking you through some makeup products that I finally got to check off of my wish list. Shopping for my kit is probably one of the many perks of being a Makeup Artist and I hope you enjoy this haul video. I'm so excited and ready to start this journey again.

A Lip Affair - Spring '15 Additions

When it comes to makeup I've always had a thing for lip products, probably something about all the colors and textures to choose from. With spring right around the corner, I decided it was time for some new additions to liven up the ole lip drawer at home. I went with 5 picks from the Drugstore, and I must say, I'm pleasantly surprised how much I like these already.

Skin Revival - Treating Dry / Dehydrated Skin

This one's for all my dehydrated, normal-to-dry, or dry skin type readers. I'm one of those "lucky" people that has normal-to-dry and dehydrated skin. When I get out of the shower, before any skincare, I feel like scratching my face off-- it's tight, itchy, & a tad flaky. Anyone else deal with this or is it just me? Luckily, over the years I have found products that revive my skin by hydrating, moisturizing, and soothing my skin even before a moisturizer is applied.

Hidden Gems - NYX Retractable Waterproof Liners

Today I'm back with my 2nd installment of the 'Hidden Gems' series. If you missed the introductory post, you can read it here. Basically, I show you products that I don't see super hyped up on social media and in the blogging world that I feel deserve some attention and credit. Oh, and they are (most of the time) cost friendly - yay! Let's get into it, shall we?
