Blurring imperfections, this is the name of the game when it comes to makeup – at least for me. Oh, how I long for the skin of my twenties. While I know that’ll never happen, I can at least fake it with a good foundation (Koh Gen Do Aqua Foundation has been on heavy rotation) and an incredible primer which is where my latest obsession – Heir Atelier Face Primer – comes into play. Now, if you’re unfamiliar with primers, they work by creating a barrier between the makeup and the skin preventing sweat and oil from causing the makeup to crease,…

Looking back on 2019, I can confidently say it was the year I re-entered the makeup world and remembered how to apply eyeshadow! Not really by choice, more necessity I left full-face makeup, false lashes, and often — showers behind in 2018. I was postpartum and barely surviving that first year. But with Chloe walking, sleeping (thank, god!) and developing more independence (she’s now in daycare and loves it!) as the days go by, I have been able to return to makeup! My husband is thrilled. And so is the outside world. I’m sure my mailman was wondering who the disheveled, un-showered,…

At-home lash extensions have arrived! Just the sound of that – “at-home” paired with “lash extensions” – gives me happy chills.

The beauty industry is a deluge of product launches and new brands at every turn. As a beauty blogger, fatigue is inevitable. But every so often something will come along to shake off the malaise and reignite my passion for beauty. This is exactly what the beauty brand, Kosås, has been able to invoke with its small line of eight lipsticks and six blush palettes. Though barely two years old, Kosås has established fervent fans in both green and traditional beauty circles alike by embodying an antithesis to the beauty climate’s current tone of excess: limited product offerings in essential colors –…

Detox Market’s newly launched monthly subscription box is a MUST for 2018 if your goal is to cut back on beauty spending (I know that’s one of mine…). You’ll receive each month, for as low as $39.95 per month, the clean beauty retailer’s best selling products for more than 50% off!? The January box they sent me to review had a retail value of $95 and it contained two products I have become absolutely smitten for – a full size Tammy Fender Epi-Peel and a travel size of the Tammy Fender Rose Toner. Starting in January, Detox’s monthly boxes are going to…
