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.

So brief disclaimer: I am not a dermatologist or an herbalist. I am someone who tries to find the simplest ways to get maximum results, naturally. I’ve been very vocal on this here blog about my skin. That time I called myself not so pretty and healed my face in a week was really the […]

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 […]

Make up forever fabulousness

When I say I’ve found the foundation of my dreams….. A month ago I went into Sephora looking to try something better than the MAC liquid foundation I was using. I used to love it but it kept making my skin greasy. I got tired of blotting my face at every restroom visit. I heard […]

How to Get Rid of Eye Puffiness

Interesting day yesterday. A commenter on yesterday’s post told me that under my eyes look like a 50 year old’s. Well I’m only 25 so that’s has got to change. I actually don’t think I have bags under my eyes yet but after googling the subject (Google should be everyone’s best friend), WEBMD says that it is […]

Simple Face

I’m not big on makeup but I do a little something to jazz my face up if I’m going somewhere special. I’m love a clean look and either being dramatic with my eyes (heavy on the liner) or accentuating my lips (bright, bold colors).  Below are my favorite products ever. When I go out, I use […]
