How to Create a Natural Glam Makeup Look

Those of you who know, know that I live for a natural face beat. You know, a nice nude with a pop of lip color. Maybe a little eyeliner to jazz it up. But not by much. Since it is the month we celebrate love, I wanted to create a look for Valentine’s Day that was natural, yet glamorous at the same time. To achieve this look, I enlisted the help of my trusted friend/sister, Naomie of Blushed By Naomie.

Not much has changed since my last makeup bag post. I still don’t enjoy doing the most with my face but I’m going for a more sultry look this Fall. Natural face, dark lip and bold eyes.

In My Makeup Bag

Many people tell me that I have really nice skin. I truly appreciate that but it wasn’t always easy. I didn’t have problem skin until college. When it got bad, I got meds from the derm that not only cleared my skin but made it amazingly dewy to the touch. When I felt like my […]

Weekend at a glance: thrifting #45

Put on a happy face

The theme for this week’s Fashion Beauty Friend Friday (FBFF) is ‘no makeup’, hosted by Oranges and Apples. I follow a lot of beauty bloggers so I’m pretty excited to see all the naked face pictures.

Tinted moisturizers

Products galore

So a while back I fed my beauty obsession. Just a little snack since you know we ARE in a recession. I’ve been hearing whispers about these products and decided to give them a try. 1. NARS Super Orgasm Blush (Blame Drake) Definitely not what I thought it would be. It takes a lot of […]

FBFF: Beauty products

1. What’s your favorite drug store makeup product and your favorite higher-end product? Drugstore:  Maybelline Falsies! My new love! You can see a difference with just one coat (but since I’m a volume addict, I usually do two coats). I seriously think with this mascara, and an eyelash comb, you can really make your eyes POP! […]
