Here you guys have it, my secret to glowy, dewy skin!
Here are my absolute favorite products of January 2017 + a mini vlog of my trip to Los Angeles/GenBeauty! Enjoy!
Happy New Year! Can you believe 2016 is over? A new year for self-growth, success and most importantly beauty trends is upon us! Let's get rid of those ridiculous beauty trends of 2016 and make 2017 your most beautiful yet. These are the beauty trends that will take over this year. (Giving you a little head start to set them before your favorite influencers do!)
Who doesn't love Mean Girls? It's a total classic! ("If you're from Africa then why are you white?" - Karen Smith) No character stood out more in Mean Girls than the ever so villainous Regina George. Iconic. When I found out that Jeffree Star Cosmetics was releasing a skin frost named Regina George, I had to jump at the opportunity of trying. Let's just say it was soooo fetch.
Being the beauty enthusiast that I am, I am constantly finding products that I can't seem to live without until I find yet another product that I then can't seem to live without. (First world problems) The beauty industry is consistently pushing the envelope and creating amazing products that will bring as close to perfection as possible. This is most definitely the case with makeup powerhouse brand, Make Up For Ever and their ah-mazing Ultra HD line.
My skin has absolutely transformed since I decided to undergo a strict night routine. Your skin rejuvenates and repairs itself from everyday exposure to pollution, makeup, dirt and other external factors while you sleep. It is essential to prep the skin to maximize this rejuvenation process. No matter the skin type, properly cleansing, toning, and moisturizing before going to bed is crucial to the health of your skin.
The line between gender and beauty has significantly blurred in the past year and has given rise to an interest in makeup amongst males. The super macho anti-makeup attitude of the 90s is giving way to a new era of beauty enlightenment amongst men and doesn't seem to be slowing down anytime soon. Lately, my everyday routine has consisted of simple male grooming because it requires very little time and effort but gives you a polished look for any occasion.
2016 saw a major rise in social media influencers of all sorts but especially in beauty. It seems that everyday there is a new, up and coming influencer and now male beauty influencers are a part of the scene blurring the lines between gender and makeup. I spend many hours searching through the explore page on Instagram, watching tutorials on Youtube, scrolling through blogs, finding many influencers that I can't seem to stop loving! Here is a list of my favorite Beauty Influencers, Bloggers and Youtubers!
I absolutely cannot believe that 2016 is over. It's almost as if each year flies by quicker than the last. 2016 was an amazing year for myself, I got to grow as a beauty influencer, person and I am more inspired than I have ever been in my entire life. I've also been able to try some amazing products that have kept me looking my best. Here are my picks for favorite beauty & skin care products of 2016.
So I had the pleasure of collaborating with my beautiful friend Lynette Cenee! She is one of the newest ipsy stylists, and is known for her fun, creative content and her incredible knack for magic. We spontaneously filmed this collab while I was hanging out at the ipsy studios in LA, and it was honestly so much fun. This is my first collaboration ever, and I'm so glad it was with a great friend of mine. Definitely check her out on Instagram and Youtube @LynetteCenee. Hope you enjoy the video!
So I haven't worked out in three weeks so that I could film this mini "Body Contour" Instagram tutorial. I knew I would get a lot of comments saying "Well you already have abs!", so I ditched the gym and saw the muscles disappear slightly and felt it was the right time to film. (The things I do for ya'll, everyone knows that I'm a total gym rat!) I've wanted to film this tutorial for a while now, and am so excited to share it with you all! Get that body snatched in an instant with some highlight and contour!
It's finally the day, Gerard Cosmetics' Metal Matte Liquid Lipsticks have launched! These six shades are described as iridescent yet neutral. The matte formula gives it the appearance of the original matte liquid lipstick GC is famous for but has a metallic look when exposed to light. They are truly six unique and gorgeous shades that everyone will love!
Whether you're on the East Coast like I am where New York winters are cold, long and snowy or a West Coaster where a winter in LA means temperatures drop to a freezing 55 degrees (rolls eyes), there is no getting around the dry air winter brings. Dry air wreaks havoc on the lips and no matter what you do, if you aren't equipped to battle it, you end up with chapped, painful lips...
Oh my god ya'll, so it's been a couple of weeks since the launch of the Anastasia Beverly Hills stick foundations and I'm sure you have seen them featured in countless looks on Instagram, Youtube etc. I was a little hesitant to try this formula because I had never used a stick foundation before, but I absolutely love Anastasia Beverly Hills products and thought it would be worth the try. I tackle everything from coverage, blendability, color range and price!
So many of you ask me what my skin care routine consists of, so here you have it!
Guys, it's been almost two months since I last posted a new video! I decided to do the "How I Did My Makeup In High School" challenge and it brought back so many memories! Those eyebrows and that unblended contour was such a mess! LOL
It's finally fall, that means pumpkin spice latte's, fifty degree weather (if you live in a temperate region), and tons of berry hued lips! I cannot believe how quickly this year is flying, but don't we say that every year? LOL. Now that the heat of the summer is finally passed us, it's time to switch up that beauty routine! Here are 4 (Necessary) Tips that will keep you in tip top shape all the way into the Winter!
Whether you're going to the gym, running to the store or you just slept through your alarm, no matter how much time you have or the situation, you want to look great. Flawless skin is a sign of good health and good health is truly the foundation of beauty. The healthier you look, the more beautiful you look!

I discovered this amazing tip that gives me poreless skin in less than a minute!
