With Fall just around the corner, I wanted to round up some of my favorites lip shades that are perfect for the cozy season ahead! I don’t know about you guys, but forget the diamonds – endless lipsticks and glosses are a girl’s best friend. Let’s face it, you can never have too many. 😉

It’s so easy to take any look to the next level with a pop of color on the lips. One of my go-to looks is a simple cat eye paired with a dark, rich lip color. For fall, I gravitate towards shades like deep orange, …

Hi guys, and happy summer! Can you believe it’s July already?? Hopefully you’re all either on the beach or planning a fun vacay – I’m actually in the Hamptons right now for the first time ever! So far, so relaxing 🙂

Lately, something I wish was a little more chill were the volume of grays I’ve been getting. It all started young when I was 16. At the time it wasn’t too noticeable so I left it alone, but now that I’m 27 and my hormones are raging with this pregnancy – it’s definitely been a hassle and I have …

Every season I find myself changing more than a few products in my everyday makeup routine. During summer my skin tends to get more oily so I typically switch over to a shine-free matte foundation and peachier hues for blush, bronzer, lip etc. In the winter, my skin is more dry so I opt in for a more creamy/dewy foundation and warmer colors to accessorize the face ;). The one thing I try to achieve in every season (regardless of the weather conditions) is flawless skin that looks healthy, radiant and natural.

Hi guys! I recently chopped my hair off because it was becoming dull, dry and damaged. I knew that having shorter hair meant changing up my haircare routine. So lately I’ve been switching it up, and I’m not just talking about my different hairstyles… 😉

I’m so excited to announce that I’ve partnered with Kérastase, a brand that I love, to share some of their new products that are serious game changers. I got the inside scoop on products launching later this year that literally had me saying WOW. I can’t wait to try them and share my honest review …

Makeup Monday: Simple yet Bold

Now here’s a makeup look I’m obsazzed with. *heart eyes emoji*

A pop of color on the lids. Simple yet so bold.

How you should apply it: Prime your lids, then use a long, fluffy eyeshadow brush like this one to lightly shade the eyes. A long and fluffy brush will give you softer application versus a densely packed brush which can intensify color pickup.

Your bold eyeshadow should stop at a point that’s just touching, or at a position that’s a little higher than the eyelid crease. If you have monolids, try to keep the color close to …

The first time I cut my hair above the collar bone, it was two years ago and I was so worried I wouldn’t be able to rock my favorite hairstyles. I styled my hair straight on most days, and got bored real quick. This time around, I’ve learned a few tricks and have learned ways to rock effortless messy waves – without looking like a triangle head. For me, the best days to style messy waves are usually day 2 or 3 unwashed hair.

I’m going to walk you through the products I used for this and the easy technique …
