5 Reasons You Should Try Powder Face Cleansers

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. We’ve already been making our own perfect foundation with custom color drops and now the same is true for facial cleansers.

Powder cleansers have quietly been making their way on the scene for some time and it looks like their here to stay. These formulas start of as fine powder and transform into a liquid consistency once water is added. While I’m not one to follow every trend, this is actually one that I’m all for.

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.

Recently I had one of those rare really bad breakouts. About two weeks ago my face started losing its ish! I woke up with several small pimples and blemishes randomly around my face. Over the next two days I noticed my skin getting worse so I decided to try treatment. Luckily Murad had previously sent me over their anti-aging acne care line. The line has three steps: (more…)

  NEW Skin+ Pharmacy Hydration Collection

Skin+ Pharmacy Hydration Collection

I’m always excited when a drugstore product is on par with a prestige product. I recently got to try out some products from the NEW Skin+ Pharmacy Hydration Collection prior to its launch. As someone still in my twenty’s, I’m more concerned with preventive aging rather than trying to reverse the signs. I think it’s never to early to start taking care of your skin (although I am guilty of sometimes sleeping in my makeup). The line is designed to hydrate the skin while gently and effectively targeting the visible signs of aging.

The products feature hyaluronic acid and oligosaccharides, which is a gentle alternative to retinol. Interested in learning more? Keep reading to see details on each product in the new launch. (more…)


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.



July Beauty Favorites #FancyFridays

July Beauty Favorites

To say the summer has been flying by seems like such a cliché but it’s really true. With the sun and heat to combat during the day, I haven’t changed my beauty products too much (I haven’t even been wearing makeup as much) during the summer but there are still a few products that I’ve been reaching for over and over.


Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade Review

Anastasia Beverly Hills DIPBROW Pomade Review

Eyebrows and me are like bones and a dogs… I gotta have em. So not so surprisingly I have a lot of eyebrow products.. like A LOT. My eyebrows are naturally thin (if I went a year without getting them done they still wouldn’t be bushy!), so obviously I’m obsessed with nice full brows. Everybody and their mama has pretty much tried Anastasia Beverly Hills brow products before (literally my mom has some of their brow pomade as well). I’ve tried a few of their products before including their brow pencil and have always known them to be pretty solid products. So way back in the spring when I was in the need for new brow product, I decided to finally try their dipbrow pomade once and for all. This is probably one of their most popular products and has been reviewed by countless beauty bloggers so I figured I might as well add my two cents as well. (more…)
