powder face cleansersLiving in the “Chipotle age” we’ve all grown accustomed to having things customized to be exactly how we like them. Luckily beauty products are starting to pick up on this.

Murad Anti-Aging Acne Skin Care Review

 Anti-aging and acne are two words you probably don’t expect to see in the same product. Usually when I think of acne I associate it with teenagers but more and more skincare companies are catering to “adult acne”. While I never really struggled with acne (I totally understand if you hate me now) I do have the occasional breakout, even as an adult.

So without further ado, here’s five things you can add to your green smoothie recipes that actually taste good and are good for you! (more…)

HOW TO APPLY BLUSH 3 WAYS

How to Apply BlushI’ll be honest, if I’m not wearing blush I feel pretty basic. I can’t stand to see the sight of me with makeup on without blush, it somehow just seems wrong to me. While there is no one right way to apply blush, there certainly are several wrong ways to do it. I’ll never forget back in high school when a friend saw me after applying my blush and told me that I looked like a “red brick.” The statement was a bit rude but the message was clear: what ever I was doing with my blush was not working. After that I stayed away from blush until I learned how to properly apply it.

Blush is something that I think a lot of woman shy away from because it seems difficult or unnecessary, both of which couldn’t be further from the truth. Keep reading to see a tips and tricks on how to apply blush, trust me, it will take your face to a whole new level.
