My Fall Makeup Routine!

Justifying my splurging on brand new makeup simply because it’s Fall might not make sense to many people- but considering I went pretty minimal for the Summer since it seemed like a waste of perfectly good product and money to have expensive foundations/tinted moisturizers, bronzers or eye shadows slide right off of me in the […]

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.

My Fall Makeup Routine!

It has admittedly been difficult for me to get excited about makeup (which is usually one of my favorite things!) in 2020. Not just because of the overall life-altering trauma the COVID-19 pandemic has caused- but also because I’m wearing a mask 99.9% of the time. I mean, what’s the point of wearing makeup if […]
