Hey everyone! I posted a picture to my twitter showcasing my brows and I got retweeted by my fav makeup brand Benefit!! Not a big deal to some but to me it is :) you can find the tweet here. My brows are naturally pretty thick so I just have to fill in the sparse parts and add more definition. I wanted to try all of the products but found them individually sorta pricey but then they came out with a brow kit that had everything I wanted! (well I bought the brow pencil separate earlier) I'll do a tutorial on how I achieve my brows soon.  Keep reading to see my first makeup tutorial ;)

Love it or Leave it | Dupes

Hey everyone! Recently I've been following a lot of beauty trends and found one on dupes. In this post I'll be showing you a couple of  products I use religiously and their high end/ affordable dupes and which ones I love or which Im gonna have to leave(because of either price or functionality for me).
Starting with my intro pic: I bought the NARS radiant creamy concealer last year and have loved it ever since. Im finally almost out and was about to go buy a new one when I stopped at CVS to pick up a prescription and happened to walk past the makeup section. I saw Wet n Wilds display and wanted to try their new foundation, but was unsuccessful in finding my shade, so I decided to try their Photo focus concealer instead.

ST PATTYS DAY | Green Lipstick | New Products

Hey everyone! The one day wearing all green and drinking Irish car bombs from sunrise to sunset is finally here; St Patrick's Day. There's a legit historical reason for the celebration but I dont want to bore you with my history and facts that may or may not be from Wikipedia. Well, I normally never do much to participate in festivities but today was slightly different because I had a green lipstick. I received the lipstick in a gift bag from GenBeauty(I'll be using products ALL year from that bag I got so much!). I usually stick to nudes so I tried to push myself to be bold today.

Black Mask | Trend | Skincare

Hey everyone! So Im pretty sure you've seen the humorous  video of a woman in excruciating pain as she removes her charcoal mask. It's hilarious and if you haven't seen it I'll link the video here. Based on the video I assumed the intensity of the mask would work wonders on the few blackheads I had. I scrolled through the comments section looking for a link to the mask so I could give it a try. Well, ladies and gentleman, the verdict is in: it works!

Flower Jelly Lipstick | Trend

Hey everyone! I received my Jelly lipstick in the mail and let me tell you, it's so cute!! This trend first came on my radar last year when Cosmopolitan featured it on their site. After reading the article I all of a sudden started to see pictures of the lipstick popping up everywhere. The brand that was stirring all the trendy pics is Kailijumei(22$). The brand in my picture is not that but I got it at a fraction of the price(1$) with an identical concept.
