Pop Art Makeup Hack

Friday, October 31st, 2014

Just a quick post of some awesome pop art makeup I did for my little sister for Halloween. After looking at a lot of others on pinterest and youtube, I concluded that the dots really make a big difference. They should be pretty even and consistent. My boyfriend found a great stencil that worked wonders, […]

Drugstore Dupe for Benefit’s They’re REAL Mascara

Monday, September 15th, 2014

Love Benefit’s iconic “They’re REAL” Mascara but hate the hefty $24 price tag? Me too. On a whim, I tried L’Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Mascara and as it turns out, it is SO similar to They’re Real! I arguably like it even better, as it’s a teeny bit more volumizing. I got great length and volume, […]

I tried it- Clear and Brilliant laser resurfacing

Wednesday, July 17th, 2013

Although I’ve been lucky to skate through 30 with just minimal signs of my age, I am noticing things beginning to creep up. A lifetime of oily skin has left me with noticeable pores, marks from old breakouts and uneven pigmentation. Thankfully, significant wrinkles aren’t something that have plagued me quite yet, so I haven’t […]

Friday, December 9th, 2011

I just wanted to share my self-done mani for the Holiday Party tomorrow (savings: $20!) I used China Glaze Haunting and accented one nail with OPI Rainbow Connection. I topped it all with a layer of Seche Vite top coat, which dries SOLID in two minutes. It makes manicures a whole lot less time […]

Sunday, July 24th, 2011

You may have heard of ShoeDazzle– a service that after a brief questionare, a team of personal stylists selects shoes that- based on your style profile- you’re sure to love. All for a tempting and affordable price of only $39.99. I’m a lover of bargains in the name of fashion, so I signed up, answered […]

Beauty: Running late to work?

Tuesday, May 24th, 2011

Nothing like looking at the clock and realizing you have a meeting in 30 minutes and you still need to shower and make it there. That happened to me this week. I needed to meet a contractor at the office very early in the morning so they could get in and out before the rest […]

Beauty: How much do you spend on your hair?

Wednesday, May 18th, 2011

For a long time I’ve been really self-conscience about my hair. I got my first gray hair in high school and I’m pretty sure I haven’t seen my natural hair color since then. I’m afraid to think what’s under the years of color. In my early twenties I used the good store brand hair color, […]

Beauty: Top 3 eye makeup brushes

Monday, May 9th, 2011

Good quality makeup brushes can be a sound investment. They are used often, and should withstand a fair amount of abuse. That said, I was blown away at a makeup artist trade show a few years ago the first time I saw a Japanese powder brush that was over $200 (?!) While who wouldn’t love […]
