A Lipstick Trick: How to Get Color to Last and Pop

Over the last couple years, I traded most of my lip glosses for lipstick. Never did I think that would happen—I mean, I was a diehard gloss girl. But we grow and change, I guess.

The Best 6 Foundations Out There (And You Need Them All)

If there is one thing I need in life, it's options! When Chris asks, "What do you want for dinner?" I always reply with, "I don't know—what are my options?" The same thing goes for makeup—except that with foundation, you really do need different options. Different foundations all do different things, and I don't mean just cover troubled areas. They reflect light; they can give you a dewy or matte look; they can highlight your cheekbones; the list goes on. Especially around the holidays, I am always reaching for a different foundation. ...more

Review: Maybelline Brow Drama

I think it’s pretty safe to say that most of you know that I won’t leave the house unless my eyebrows are done; by done I mean filling them in with a pencil. I started doing that last year and it has made all the difference for my face. I first started with Anastasia Brow Wiz (loved it) just way to expensive.

no make up no filter challenge

I proposed a challenge to my Facebook friends a while back to go raw for a day. The challenged proposed a single day in the public, without makeup, no filter and a selfie post.
