Quick and Natural Everyday Makeup

Natural makeup looks are so refreshing to see. As much as I love artistic and glam looks, they just aren’t practical for everyday wear. If you tend to be a little bit lower maintenance in your beauty routine like me, you probably don’t like to fuss with foundation and false lashes every time you apply makeup. Lucky for us, there are still ways to enhance your features without using a ton of products! Today I’m going to share with you my own natural-looking makeup routine. Step 1: Wet N Wild Coverall Primer I always like to start off with applying a bit of primer…

The Microdermabrasion that Saved My Skin

All skin types have their pros and cons. I happen to have combination skin, which means I get a lovely mix of very oily areas and very dry areas. I’ve tried multiple exfoliators, but nothing seemed to work on my resilient skin. In the February Boxycharm, everyone received a Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion exfoliator. I’m going to be honest here. If I hadn’t received this in my subscription box, there is no way I would have ever bought it on my own. Why? Well it’s simple: this baby retails at $79! It’s very much on the higher end of skincare, and I just…

February 2017 Boxycharm Unboxing

The day I receive my Boxycharm is my favorite day of the month! I love getting surprised with new beauty goodies, and the Boxycharm team really knocked it out of the park with this month’s box. S0 without further ado, let’s get into what I got! Royal & Langnickel Omnia Eye Kit ($29.98) – This beautiful gold and rose gold brush set makes a great addition to my brush collection. The gold is an eyeshadow brush and the rose gold is a smudge brush. The bristles on both are very soft and apply product well. They seem to be great quality! Makeup Geek…

Perfectly Polished: OPI Infinite Shine Nail Polish

You can never go wrong with a good, long-lasting nail polish. The only negative thing about them is that they are so hard to come by! My friend gifted me this OPI “I Believe in Manicures” gel polish and she raved about how long it lasted, so naturally I couldn’t wait to try it. As I write this on a gloomy Wednesday afternoon, I am currently wearing this nail polish. In fact, I’ve been wearing it since Sunday and there is no chipping in sight! It even lasted through a scrubbing battle between me and a stack of dishes. Ok…it was…

Wet n Wild Photo Focus Foundation Review

Normally I take a pass on foundation in my everyday makeup routine, but I do like to have them on hand for special occasions when I know I’m going to be on camera. My dream foundation is light, “breathable,” doesn’t settle into my creases, and – most importantly – matches my skin tone. Wet n Wild is notorious for being an affordable cruelty-free drugstore brand. They have a wide range of makeup products including tools, false eyelashes, and nail polish, so this is definitely a “one-stop-shop” brand. The Photo Focus foundation is one of their newest releases, and the bottle…
