Summer Makeup Switches

"Blog, Makeup Tips"

When summer hits, its time for some changes! In addition to bringing out your summer shorts and dresses, don’t forget to make changes in your makeup routine as well! Foundation With the sun and humidity out, its easy for your foundation to feel heavy and slide off your face (which isn’t too cute). Switch your foundation for a BB Cream. Not only are BB creams feel lightweight, they also have SPF which helps prevent skin cancer. Win-win! My U.S. favs are Burt’s Bees BB Cream and Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream. Highlighter Highlighter is totally in right now (have you seen the new shades from the Jouer Highlighter collection?!) but can fade through the hot summer day. Try switching to a liquid or gel highlighter to make that cheekbone pop all day long! Marc Jacobs…

I absolutely love reading these types of posts because I love getting to know what other people pack when they travel! If you’d like to know what I usually pack on vacations to keep my makeup and skin 100%, please keep reading! Skincare Out of all the steps in my travel makeup bag, I think this is the most important step. It is so critical to take care of your skin, especially when you are traveling. Inside a plane with recycled air for hours, commuting by car, and a blazing hot sun is a recipe for skin disaster. Whenever traveling, I always make sure to have enough hydration and sun protection. I really like masks focused on hydration since…

5 MUST HAVE Drugstore Makeup Dupes

"Blog, Makeup Tips"

Good drugstore products can sometimes be tough to find. But lately drugstore products have stepped it up with some awesome dupes! Today I’m going to share with you my top 5 FAVORITE drugstore dupes! Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge vs. Beauty Blender This is a well-known dupe, but I wanted to share it in case you haven’t heard about it!

The Real Techniques sponge is pointed on the top and has a diagonal cut at the bottom. This cut helps make the sponge more versatile; I blend…
