  1. Depuff Undereyes

I used my Tarte Pack Your Bags 911 Undereye Rescue Patches ($22 for 4 pairs) that had been in the refrigerator to help reduce any puffiness. You can also go old school and use cold spoons! One of my new faves Mallory Ervin recommended these Tarte patches. You may also remember that Lady Sonja Morgan from Real Housewives of New York dips her whole face in an ice bath to help with puffiness!

Cynthia Bailey’s Beauty Secrets

Ms. Cynthia Bailey the supermodel entrepreneur on Real Housewives of Atlanta just turned 50. Fifty years old ladies and gentleman! She looks absolutely incredible so I just HAD to do some research and find out what her beauty secrets are. I’ve even seen Cynthia in passing at the Grove in Los Angeles and she was absolutely stunning just like a supermodel should be.

“The thing that modeling has taught me about beauty is that it’s really individual. I work with so many different types of beauties, as a model. It’s not so much traditional. It’s about working with what you have and owning it. Confidence is so much of a part of being beautiful. I’ve met so many women who weren’t model-beautiful. Their confidence and everything about them is so beautiful to me.” – Cynthia Bailey (Source)

Holiday Gift Ideas for Her 2016

I recently attended a Nordstrom Morning Beauty Event and they had TONS of awesome gift ideas I had to share! If you didn’t know, Nordstrom regularly holds great (free!) beauty events in store where you usually get some really great samples and freebies! They had tons of raffles at mine and I even won a Nest home diffuser! You can see if your store is having any Nordstrom events here. The Nordstrom at the Grove is even having Mr. Francois Nars in store on December 10th from 2-4pm for a book signing.

Also don’t forget to use Ebates because Nordstrom currently has 6% cash back.

My top pick for a gift is either of these: Continue reading Holiday Gift Ideas for Her 2016

NikkieTutorials Makeup Palette

I am an avid consumer of beauty guru content on YouTube, IG, SnapChat, you name it and I’m watching it daily. I was so excited when I heard NikkieTutorials was coming out with her own palette with Too Faced because I love her aesthetic which is basically super pasty girl in drag queen glam with extra glitter, my kind of girl. Her palette is launching next week on Monday August 15th at Ulta, Sephora, Sephora Canada, and the Too Faced website. Here’s what you get for $56 Continue reading NikkieTutorials Makeup Palette

Beauty Trend – Rainbow Highlighters Part Two

On the last post I talked about the rainbow highlighter that was all over social media which has all the colors of the rainbow in one pan to make you sparkle like a beautiful unicorn fairy rainbow princess. Today I want to talk about highlighters that have been coming out in non-traditional colors.

Jeffree Star Skin Frost Highlighters

I talked about Jeffree Star who you might remember from MySpace on my previous liquid lipsticks post, but since then he has started his own YouTube channel which is SO ENTERTAINING I watch A LOT of YouTube and I HIGHLY recommend checking out his videos he is hilarious. Anyways, he recently came out with 4 highlighters which sold out very quickly. They come in King Tut (gold) and Ice Cold (white highlight that’s light enough for extremely fair skin) which are typical highlight colors, but since it’s Jeffree Star they are extremely pigmented and you’ll be able to be seen from space.

Jeffree Star Skin Frosts in Ice Cold, Peach Goddess, King Tut, and Mint Condition. They are $29 each or 4 for $100

He also came out with Peach Goddess which is a peachy shade which is a little different, and then the most unique shade Mint Condition which is a mint blue color, so fun!
