If I had to choose one thing that defines beauty, it’s the eyes. They’re the most intimate and intriguing part of our features, and there are lots of ways to make an impact. You can create dark, alluring eyes to give yourself a hint of mystery. Or you can go for the traditional feline look, with wide, beautiful eyes. There are so many options here, but one thing’s for sure. It’s the most important part of your makeup routine!
Don’t worry about the color of your eyes. No matter what color you are blessed with, you can make them work. Use that natural color and make it work for you! If they’re deep and blue, capture that, and maximize it! If they’re dark brown or green, use it to create a sultry look. It’s the eyes that really capture people’s attention. In this post, I’ll show you the best tricks for making the most of your eyes.
I’m not going to lie, lately I’ve been getting more into wearing natural looking false lashes (I blame the Kardashians for making me covet whatever brand they wear). Between falsies, eyelash extensions, and really good mascara — there are millions of ways to fake long luscious lashes. But nothing beats having real long full lashes. No matter how great I get at applying false lashes, I’ll never be ok with letting my real lashes get in bad shape. Even if you weren’t born with long lashes naturally, there are things you can do to help your lashes grow to their fullest potential.

Yes, that says charcoal! It may sound a little crazy, but charcoal is one of the new “it” ingredient in beauty. Charcoal absorbs oils and debris from pores on your face and body like it’s going out of style. Your skin will be screaming thank you the first time you try it out! Activated charcoal, carbon, has been used for years and years before it found its way into beauty products. Charcoal use to be used to treat alcohol poisoning because it attaches to toxins in the stomach and getting rid of them like it’s garbage day (please don’t try this at home though). With that being said, I’m going to share with you why charcoal is getting all this much deserved love and some great charcoal products you can try too!
Contouring and highlighting is still one of the makeup questions people ask me about the most (and probably will continue to be for a while.) Everybody is doing it, from the biggest celebrity to the girl next door. However, if you’re not familiar with contouring it can be difficult and sometimes go horribly wrong (no paint by numbers faces please). Contouring is super easy once you know the basics.

If you’re anything like me, once the weather starts to get cold, you start craving your next vacation. I try as much as possible to do at least two vacations a year to somewhere I’ve never been.

I love metallic shades on my nails, especially during the colder months, because I feel edgy and dramatic, but not too over the top. It gives a boring outfit a little “flare” no matter what you’re wearing. All this being said, here are some of my favorite nail polish colors along with some must-try designs!
Recently, I received the Nude Progenius Omega Treatment Rescue Oil and the Nude Progenius Omega Treatment Milk Serum and I was ecstatic because who can ever have enough skincare products?
