My Summer Makeup Routine!

I’m sure I’ve said it before- but it absolutely bears repeating- you don’t need to spend a ton of money to find high quality and flattering makeup/cosmetics these days. That’s not to say I’ll turn my nose up at high end brands, because I still like to splurge from time to time- but if navigating […]

My Spring Makeup Routine!

As much as I love (and rock) a good neutral, smoky eye or a deep and dark matte lip in the colder months- I’ve been having a lot of fun getting bright and experimental with my Spring and Summer makeup collections in recent years- especially in the past year since this pandemic started.

My Spring Makeup Routine!

I’m well aware that not many of us have been actively wearing makeup in recent weeks. Not with quarantines, shelter-in-place orders and working remotely as we navigate through the COVID-19 situation. Getting dolled up just to stay at home seems like a waste of time and product, I’m sure. But I’ve found that every once […]

My Winter Makeup Routine!

While I am a lover of all things makeup and am not one to turn my nose up at any particular brand, palette, limited edition release, etc., I also believe that you shouldn’t have to go broke to look good- especially around the holidays where many of us are already stretching ourselves thin enough as […]
