"Blog, Makeup, Makeup Tips, Slider"

Back to school is right around the corner! When I was in high school I always planned out my outfits and which stationary items to use for each class the night before.  It definitely still excites me as I head back to University this time around, but (unlike high school) I def have a lot more time to get ready. YAY FOR ADULTING! This is my everyday glam look when I have about 10 minutes to get ready. This look is so easy to achieve and is perfect for when you want to be extra glam but not over the top. For those of us who literally only have 5 minutes to get ready, I have a blog post coming up soon on how to look good in 5 minutes. SO STAY TUNED FOR…

"Blog, Makeup Tips"

Suns out, buns out! Or in my case, buns up all day E V E R Y D A Y. Summer is one of my favorite seasons because it keeps me motivated to go outside, travel and have fun. This summer a lot of drugstore brands have kicked it into high gear and have released awesome products perfect for summer!

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…

5 Tips on a PERFECT Passport Photo | Passport Makeup

"Blog, Makeup Tips, Travel"

Traveling is an eye opening experience and I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world! Unfortunately, we don’t live in a world where we can carelessly travel everywhere without the need of official paperwork. The passport application process can sometimes be overwhelming, especially taking the photo. Here are my 5 tips to a perfect passport photo! Passport | Important Details Before I start talking about passport makeup tips, I want to remind you that you should order your passport way ahead in advance. Make sure you have all the required paperwork and documentations and understand the photo requirements in your country (here’s the U.S. website on Passport FAQ that is very helpful on answering all my questions!). It’s also important to allow sufficient time to process your application. Processing a passport can take from…

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…

What’s in my Travel Makeup Bag?

"Blog, Makeup Tips, Travel"

With summer comes vacations and with vacations come packing, traveling, and lots of sun exposure. 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 Beauty Blender sponge is def a great makeup tool for all face makeup, but at a steep price point IMO. Although these two aren’t exact dupes, I actually prefer the Real Techniques sponge better because it is much softer and is cut differently than the Beauty Blender. 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…
