Favorite Lip Products

After sorting through my collection of lipsticks, glosses and liners, one thing became very clear...I'm mildly obsessed ;) However, I was able to pare down to my top choices! That being said, there are still way too many on this list, but asking me to choose between them would be impossible. I really love them all! In the video below I share some of my all time and current favorites that are sure to give you a pretty pout! Hope you all enjoy!

Updated Foundation Routine!

I haven't done an updated foundation routine since I started my YouTube Channel and beauty blog last summer, so I figured it was definitely time to film one! Plus I received a bunch of requests for it after uploading my review on the Sigmax HD brush set (that video is posted on my YT channel). I've started mixing foundations, the MUFE HD Foundation and MUFE Mat Velvet +, and have been getting amazing results! I really love how my Mat Velvet + keeps my t-zone shine-free and lasts all day, and I couldn't be without the beautiful coverage and natural glow I get from the HD formula. So I decided to start combining the two and the rest is history! Scroll down for a complete list of products and the video!

Applying Blush: Tips & Tricks!

For the longest time I thought I could never pull off blush! I always thought that it looked so nice on other people.. but just looked kind of weird on me. That was only because I was totally clueless as to how to apply it! In the video below I've included some tips for getting a beautiful, flushed cheek. I've gathered tips over the years from friends, family, magazines, makeup artists, etc. and now picking out my cheek color is my favorite part of my makeup routine! Enjoy :)
