Drugstore Picks: Powder

 

Love it, or hate it, powder is necessary for many. Some use it for oil-blotting to make sure their face doesn't evolve into a Shine-Monster, some HAAAATE liquid foundation so they opt for a powder foundation instead  and some OUGHT to use it for...

Bronzer. We need it, we love it, we over-use it.

 

Applied the wrong way = Jersey Shore

Applied the right way = Thinner cheeks, skinnier nose, lots of dimension. 

 

Bronzer is one of those funny products that is USUALLY used the wrong way right out of the gate. T...

I was scarred by powder when I was in High School. Back in the days of non-digital cameras... (YES, I am a dinosaur,) we could only rely on disposable cameras to capture all of our memories at dances like Prom or Homecoming. I would be SO excited to get to Target a da...

Part of making your makeup look the BEST that it possibly can is moisturized skin. For years, I thought that my breakout would worsen if I used any type of moisturizer because it would be "adding oil." ?!? Not sure where I got that science, but that aint right. Often t...

While I LOVE my full coverage foundation 95% of the time, some days I want to give it a break. Don’t get it twisted…I’ll always love it and I’ll never forsake it. Many DON'T want the full-coverage look every day, and if that's you, listen up!!

My motto: Concealer hides you...

Welcome to February.

 

...to the semi-end of winter,

 

...to the saddest month of the year for us Seattleites, (RIP Superbowl 49)

I've gotta be honest. I've never been a huge primer fan. Since I've fought skin drama for as long as I can remember, I'm always apprehensive when it comes to adding MORE products to the mix. God knows I love makeup and products, but if it means more product that could...

While I LOVE my full coverage foundation 95% of the time, I haven't wanted to use it much for the last week. Don’t get it twisted…I’ll always love it and I’ll never forsake it. But when I’m out in the sun all day, it’s hard to want to apply a normal face of makeup. Wit...

Summer Skin 101

 

Want bright, fresh, summer-skin?? You might be much closer to it than you think!
