I will HONESTLY, (hand on 27 Bibles,) buy this eye treatment as long as it exists. Forever, ever. 

 

Coming from a top-tier Department store background, I unintentionally expect to be shocked or amazed by Drugstore products sometimes. I FULLY prove myself wrong time and...

Concealer. We all need it. (And if you don't...I don't buy it.) Even if you aren't using it to conceal problem areas all over your face, a little concealer on your under-eye will either brighten or conceal your tired, sleepy eyes. 

 

My motto: Concealer hides you...

Eyeshadow sticks were definitely one product that I had a suuuuuuper pre-conceived notion about, but was proved wrong after one use. My assumption? That a Drugstore-crayon stick of eyeshadow that claimed to wear for 24 hours would be 1. ugly and 2. would barely last a...

Brows is kind. 

Brows is smart. 

Brows is important.

 

Too far? Nope. Brows frame your face, bring structure to your eye-area and are a natural accessory. If you're not utilizing them, let me help you out.

Oooooook. I'll go ahead and go out on a limb here and say it...

 

THIS YEAR'S DRUGSTORE MONTH IS ONE HUNDRED TIMES BETTER THAN LAST YEAR.

If you just read that and thought, “Wait what…eye shadow first??” then this extra is for you:

 

DID YOU KNOW….Startin...

Welcome to February.

 

...to the semi-end of winter,

 

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

 

...and to MUWM DRUGSTORE MONTH. 

 

 

THE WHY: For years, I've worked for multiple cosmetic lines which exposed me to a TON of Dept. store brands e...

Let me rattle off a list of things that brushes can and usually improve: 

 

Excessively oily-skin

Breakouts

Foundation that looks too thin or splotchy

Foundation that looks too cakey

All of the World's problems. What?

 

A few good brushes will make your makeup look 100x better...

Bronzer applied the wrong way = Jersey Shore

Bronzer 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. The misconception is that it's sole purpose i...

If you know me at all, you know that my biggest non-negotiable is BROWS. Brows frame your eyes making them look bigger, wider, and less-tired. They've made quite a comeback this year. Soft makeup with a bold brow and lipstick are super trendy and chic, but without a to...
