Studio Makeup ‘On the Go’ Cool Down Palette

As of late, I’ve been obsessed with cranberry-colored eyeshadow. I’m not sure what it is, but it’s just so beautiful to me! I received this Studio Makeup On the Go Cool Down palette in my November Boxycharm subscription box, and I am obsessed! I can’t seem to find it on their website, but here is its counterpart. These eyeshadows are highly pigmented, especially the shimmery shades. They’re very powdery, however, so I do experience some fallout. This is mostly noticeable in the shimmery shades because they have glitter in them, so you will probably get a little glitter on your face…

Pale Skin Beauty Tips

Ahh, I can hear it clear as day. “Why don’t you just get a tan?” was a question I was asked by my friends all too often growing up. When I responded, “I physically can’t…no, seriously. I can’t,” they would look at me like I had two heads. If you have pale skin like me, this probably sounds all too familiar. I grew up and still live in a very warm, sunshine-y area where everyone around me has beautiful tan-to-dark skin. I stick out like a sore thumb (well, more like flourescent lightbulb), and it took me until recently to finally…

Simple Holiday 2016 Makeup Look

December has arrived, and that means it’s time to break out the bright red lips and gold eyeshadows and put together some fun holiday makeup looks! I love a look that only takes one eyeshadow palette to complete, and that’s exactly what I’m sharing with you today: something super simple, neutral, and festive. The Too Faced Natural Eyes palette is totally underrated. It’s a handy little makeup tin that holds nine beautiful neutral eyeshadows. Its small size is deceiving; you can totally create several different looks with this palette for both day and night. It’s one of my OG high-end…

A Mini Drugstore Haul (Mostly Essence Products)

It’s not completely abnormal to find me at my local Target on a Friday or Saturday night. This past weekend, I was meandering around the makeup aisles when I noticed that my Target had started carrying the brand Essence. I was stoked! Essence is an extremely affordable brand, and their products are actually quite good. If you’re like me, you struggle to cover up the dark circles underneath your eyes. This little Essence Say NO to Dark Circles Concealer crayon called out to me from one of the shelves, so I decided to give it a try. I actually layered it underneath my…

3 Ways I Use Coconut Oil in My Night Routine

Do you ever stumble upon a product that makes you wonder, “Where have you been all my life?” Well, this is exactly what happened with me and coconut oil. This handy little substance is something most people keep in their kitchen, but not a lot of people know that you can use it in your beauty routine as well! A jar is around $8 and can do incredible things for your skin and hair. My mom is the one who introduced it to me several years ago when I was complaining about how dry my hair was after bleaching it, and now it has…
