How I Get Thick + Long Lashes (Without Using Falsies!)

November 13, 2017

I am always looking for ways to get bolder lashes (I mean, who isn’t?), and sometimes mascara alone just doesn’t cut the mustard. A few months ago I received a sample of Jane Iredale Purelash Lash Extender & Conditioner in a beauty gift bag, and was instantly wowed. I have never used a lash primer that actually works like this one does. Before my mini tube ran out, I had already ordered the full-size to have on standby. This product looks…

How I Pack My Travel Makeup Case

October 24, 2017

I posted some pictures of my travel makeup collection several weeks ago on Instagram Stories, and the positive response was so overwhelming that I figured it called for a dedicated blog post on the topic. Plus, the timing is perfect as another trip is soon approaching for me. If you are going on a brief getaway, you certainly don’t need to bring this amount of makeup. What I am showing is intended for either longer travels and/or the makeup obsessed…

How to Transition to a Green Beauty Routine (and save money along the way!)

October 3, 2017

I’ve had the idea for this post up my sleeve for months now, and even sat down to start writing it several weeks ago. I’m sure you know by now that I am passionate about clean living and leaving the toxins at the doorstep (buh bye!), but I can’t say I’m the speediest writer. Whoops. As I started writing this post, I wondered if it should have been one of the first published on my blog. But really, I have…

How I Contour My Face Using Natural Makeup

August 8, 2017

The art of facial contouring has become trendy over the past several years, and for good reason as it enhances the beautiful sought after facial features. A slim nose. Chiseled cheeks. Chances are you have seen videos of makeup artist blending crazy amounts of dark striping into the face, seemingly changing the structure of the face at their will. I have had a few requests for a post about how I contour, so I am sharing all the deets today.…

July 2017 Beauty Heroes: Josh Rosebrook

July 27, 2017

My July Beauty Heroes box arrived in the thick of the summer heat, which was fitting as the hero product is a facial sunscreen. I was excited to find that the brand featured this month is none other than Josh Rosebrook. I have tried some of Josh’s haircare in the past, and was actually introduced to his skincare through my very first Beauty Heroes Box last year. This brings me to some big news: this will be my last Beauty…

My Experience with Jordan Samuel Skin

July 21, 2017

After about five minutes into watching my first Jordan Samuel video on Youtube, I already knew I would be trying his skincare. If you haven’t seen them for yourself, go check them out ASAP (click here). Except maybe finish reading this post first. Then go watch. And if you were wondering, this is not a sponsored post. I bought these products on my own and wanted to share my experience with you all. Jordan Samuel is a retired ballet dancer…

June 2017 Beauty Heroes: Honua Skincare

June 28, 2017

If there was ever a time to try out a Hawaiian skincare line, it would be on the cusp of the summer season. June’s Beauty Hero box featured Honua Skincare, which I had never heard of previously. This brand is founded by a Hawaiian woman, Kapua, who is dedicated to formulating superior products using Hawaiian botanicals, phytonutrients, and minerals. Kapua often accessorizes her hair with flowers, so a handmade flower was also included in the box to represent her Aloha…
