The Hottest New Brands & Trends At Indie Beauty Expo LA 2018

Discovering innovative beauty brands is what beauty bloggers like myself liiiiiiiiive for! Long gone are the days of big beauty brands dominating the landscape (Estee Lauder, who?), now, it’s all about clean ingredients and a smart new approach to skincare/makeup, and small brands are proving capable of achieving these fetes far better than the big guys.

Layering Primers For Flawless Skin Without Foundation

Happy New Year, everyone! I hope your night was spent with loved ones and lots of champagne. Mine was spent celebrating the new year and our third wedding anniversary with my husband in Vegas!
