The Cheapest Way to Clean Makeup Brushes

shop my: make up cleaner // make up brushes // my makeup // clear makeup holder // hand towels Ok so it’s noooo secret I have a little OCD, and especially when it comes to taking care of my skin. Like any another girl though, I’ve never been one to build a routine around cleaning makeup brushes after every use (does anyone actually do that?!?) and sometimes the makeup tends to build up and they can be hard to wash. About a year and a half ago, I had…

My Eyebrow Microblading Experience & Aftercare Tips

What is Microblading? It’s kind of like a semi-permanent tattoo for your eyebrows! Unlike a regular tattoo, it is a form of pigmentation that is implanted under your skin with a manual, handheld tool instead of a machine. The “artist” who does your eyebrows will draw hair-like strokes with the tool to mimic the natural hairs in your brows, but they can also enhance the shape and fullness of them as well (this is the main reason I got them done). I just wasn’t satisfied with…

My Favorite Self-Tanner: St. Tropez

So the best and worst thing about living in Arizona is that spring/summer comes EARLY…. meaning that there is little time between Christmas and when you get the chance to tan lol. Growing up I always tanned pretty easily, and throughout high school I even did the tanning bed phase (so bad, I know). But in college I really got hooked on spray tans! I would get one the night before a social or big event and would wake up the next morning to shower it off…

10 Products To Help With Dry Skin On Accutane

So I spent the past 6 months on the prescription Accutane to help dry out my acne. It was pretty rough, but I was really lucky that I didn’t have any of the intense side effects that a lot of other people experience on it. However, one of the most common side effects of the drug is dry skin (or dry everything, for that matter). I basically tried everything to get my dry skin moisturized. Chapped lips were the worst part! I put together a list of…
