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…

5 Men-Approved Nontoxic Products

June 16, 2017

As a true beauty fanatic, I enjoy continually trying new products until I find the ones that work just right for me. My husband? Not so much. It has been a long road to find ones that are effective, do not cause skin irritation, and are not exorbitantly expensive (I mean we all want a good deodorant, but I just can’t justify spending $40 a pop!). After patiently experimenting with a variety of cleanly-formulated alternatives to his usuals, he found…

How I Am Keeping My Skin Summer Worthy With OY-L

June 13, 2017

Summer recently arrived here and with it, shorts season. I knew that my legs were in need of some good exfoliation, but what I was not prepared for was a drier than normal face. While my skin is not chronically dry, I do have patches of flakiness pop up from time to time and unfortunately, this is one of those seasons. After gushing over their beautiful pictures on Instagram, I recently took the plunge and picked up a couple of…

The Foundation That Is Holy Grail Worthy

May 8, 2017

A smooth, flawless face with every blemish and spot concealed. Coverage without cakeyness, plus a dose of natural glow that somehow manages to look even better as the day goes on. That’s not too much to ask, right? I had been doubting that possibility ever since calling it quits on my beloved Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Foundation a couple of years ago. I tried Honest Beauty’s Everything Cream Foundation, W3ll People’s Narcissist Foundation Stick, and the Jane Iredale Glow…
