My Winter Skincare Essentials

December 31, 2016

I really hate what the cold does to my skin. My skin will be completely normal, no oils or anything but then I get dry patches in some areas which ruins my makeup. So the lesson I've learned during the winter? Moisturize! Skin care first before any makeup because if your skin is flaky and patchy then your makeup will be too no matter what primer you use.

My 2016 Christmas Wishlist

December 20, 2016

Christmas is almost here and that means 2017 will be right around the corner! I can't believe how fast time is flying by. But I feel like every time before I make a wishlist, I should mention how the Holiday's are never about the gifts. You should be cherishing time with family, and friends. So while gift giving/receiving may be a nice part of the holidays, I think spending time with the people you love is also something that should be enjoyed.

I absolutely love Kylie's makeup looks, so when she posted a tutorial using this palette during the release I was so excited. At first I was disappointed that there wasn't a mirror, and thought that I didn't need it because it was just another neutral palette. But after trying her liquid lipsticks, I became obsessed with her brand overall. The quality is great and I know that I'll be reaching for these shades often. When there was free shipping I decided to order this for myself and finally give in to the hype.

November Favorites

December 16, 2016

Now that November is over, my favorite time of the year is almost here. I'm so excited that it's going to be Christmas soon...but time is going by so quickly. The semester is almost over, I have yet to finish projects and I have finals coming up. Maybe that's why I was so afraid of November ending. In the month of November I didn't wear makeup for the last quarter of it because I got my lasik done! I couldn't wear makeup for a week, but these products were on my vanity for the beginning of the month because I've used it everyday.

Worth the hype? Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser

December 11, 2016

Glossier. I hear so much about this brand no matter where I am. I'll be on the train and I overhear someone talking about the new serums, I'll be in class and someone will mention Glossier. It's as if I'm meant to buy something from this brand! A lot of people I know rave so much about these products so when I asked what was one thing I needed the most, most of the answers I received was to get the milky jelly cleanser!
