"Blog, Skincare, Sponsored Posts"

When it comes to skincare, it can get complicated. There’s so many tools out there in the world that are either really cool and life-changing or really WTF, why would you ever? And today we’re gonna cover a tool that covers a bit of both! Dermarolling definitely fits in both categories because why would anyone in the right mind want to stab their face with needles? As crazy as it is, its honestly one of the most life-changing skin tools I’ve ever used. Common terms are microneedling, derma roller, What is dermarolling? Essentially its what you’re thinking. Derma [skin] + roller [with micro needles attached]. So, why does it work? Dermarolling works because its forcing your skin to create collagen and increase elasticity.

How to: Rose Gold Smokey Eye on Hooded Eyes

"Makeup, Makeup Tips, Reviews, Sponsored Posts"

Out of all the colors of the rainbow, my favorite color is rose gold <3 (technically not a color in the rainbow, but you get the gist) I decided I wanted to show you how I got this rose gold smokey eye from the other day and share some eye makeup tips for hooded eyes.   1. Apply neutral crease color To start, apply any neutral color in the crease to act as a transition color. Hooded eyes have less lid space, so the trick with hooded eyes is to apply your crease color above your crease. This ensures your shadows don’t disappear as soon as you open your eyes. You only want color to be applied around the outer v, so make sure to sharpen the line by applying tape or using a…

"Reviews, Sponsored Posts"

I partnered up with DERMA E to give you my thoughts on their Purifying collection, so if you would like to know more please read on! Also, if you want to see a close up of the products I’m reviewing today in action, check out my video link here! The DERMA E purifying collection was created to clean and restart the skin from the daily build up of oil, sweat, bacteria and micro-pollutants on skin and clog pores that can lead to acne, blemishes, and wrinkles. Yikes! This collection is specifically designed for oily, active or urban skin types. I am not oily (unless in high humidity), but am actively out and about everyday and am definitely exposed to pollution and stress that can cause breakouts. Heads up: DERMA E recently went through a repackaging…

Mikasa Beauty: Oval Brushes TESTED

"New Year, New You Series, Reviews, Sponsored Posts"

I have been seeing Oval Brushes around YouTube and decided to make a blog post about the my thoughts on Mikasa Techni Oval Brushes! Oval Brushes are versatile brushes that are rounded off for the purpose of flexibility and easier blending. Compared to standard brushes, oval brushes are curved enough to get into tight spaces on your face like around the nose and under the eyes. From my understanding, Artis was one of the original companies who came out with oval brushes exclusively a couple years ago and offers these brushes at a high end cost (each individual brush costing around $40-$80). Nowadays there are many different low and high end companies  who have adapted and sell oval brushes! This is my first time ever trying Oval Brushes, so if you would like to learn more about…
