DERMAFLASH Facial Exfoliating Device

Lately, I’ve been really getting into skincare and I’ve been loving trying new products. I started using the DERMAFLASH Facial Exfoliator, and even though I’ve only used it three times so far, it’s so good I have to share it with you 🙂 FYI: the key to this device is to actually turn it on. Sounds pretty obvious, right? But I  Read More

Step 1:

Apply a black winged liner using the Benefit They’re Real Push-up Liner. (Tip: For an easier application, make sure you don’t twist up too much product. A little goes a long way.)

Step 2:

Use the NYX Liquid Crystal Liner to apply a second line above the black liner.

(It also comes in gold and several other colors)

It’s a new season (ok, so fall has been here for a while but it’s finally starting to feel like fall where I live) which means it’s time to bust out my favorite lipstick shades for fall and winter 🙂 These three colors are definitely my go-to’s (and one of them is under $4!).

 

~MAC Cosmetics: Viva Glam II~

This is the color I have been wearing pretty much every day lately. It’s the perfect fall neutral! It has a brown tint to it but it’s not too dark, which I love 🙂

~MAC Cosmetics: Ruby Woo~

This is my favorite lipstick to wear for the holidays. It’s so festive!

~Wet n Wild: Ferguson Crest Cabernet~

I love that this shade has some red undertones to it so it’s not like, “Whoa! That girl has some purple lips”. You know what I mean? lol. And did I mention it’s under $4?!

I have become so obsessed with bold brows! There’s a girl that works at the deli counter at the grocery store who has amazing brows and I compliment her on them every time I see her, and she probably thinks I’m a psycho brow stalker. Ha! But seriously, I feel like brows totally complete a makeup look. When I look back at pictures from before I would fill in my brows, I’m just so Read More
