    Tarte Cosmetics Haul and Product Review

    One of my favorite higher end makeup brands is Tarte Cosmetics. Every years they have a custom bag kit for $63, and this year I finally caved and bought some new products to try. I haven’t used any of these items before, so I was really excited to try them out! Items in this haul: Blot Party (I think the Blot Party was either an online exclusive or they don’t have any in stock so I linked some other blotting papers instead.) Lash Primer Mini Mascara 2 in 1 Lipstick & Gloss Liquid Eyeshadow Babassu Foundation Double Ended Brush (the brush I linked is from the same collection. For some…

    May Ipsy Bag Review

    I think I loved my second Ipsy bag just as much as my first one! If you don’t know about Ipsy, it’s a subscription every month for $12 and you receive a cute pouch with 5 customized products.

    My Evening Skincare Routine

    My skin has been looking great during quarantine, probably because I haven’t been wearing makeup as often, but I’m also attributing my skincare routine to my happy skin! If you haven’t read my morning skincare routine post yet, definitely check it out! Okay, now to the actual reason I’m writing this post: Pearlessence Tumeric Scrub I found this at my local T.J. Maxx a while ago and it looked interesting so I thought I’d give it a try. I wouldn’t say it’s the best face scrub I’ve ever used, but it does what it’s supposed to. On days when I don’t need the extra exfoliation, I just use my Shea…

    My Morning Skincare Routine

    Mornings are rough. I am the opposite of a morning person. So finding a meaningful morning routine was a challenge. Especially during college, I was doing good to look presentable for class, let alone complete a 10 step skincare routine every morning. Since I’ve taken a more minimal approach to my lifestyle lately, I’ve been able to create a skincare routine that’s easy and effortless! First, I always wash my face, obviously. If I find that washing my face morning and night is too drying for me, sometimes I “wash my face” with just water. I’m sure someone will tell me that I shouldn’t do that, but I’m just trying…
