Lugg App Review

Hello gorgeous people! If you’re following me on Instagram ( @blushinginhollywood ) you would know that I recently had a big move! After 7 years of living in Hollywood I have moved into an apartment in Beverly Hills. That’s right we’re #blushinginBH now! I used the app Lugg for moving and it was super simple and efficient. I also scheduled last minute with no issues.

I’ve since used the Lugg app 2 more times to move some furniture. I included reviews about those experiences as well. I love outsourcing. Check out my YouTube video all about my Lugg app experience:

Foundation Routine for Oily Skin and How to Get Rid of Pores

I was struggling SO MUCH with my face turning into a complete oil slick, but I think I’ve finally figured out the magical combination of foundations and powders to keep my face from looking super greasy halfway through the day.

Oily skin can be especially annoying in the summertime so I thought now was the perfect time to share this. I also am sharing in this video the best way that I have found to get rid of pores or make pores appear smaller. It’s a neat little trick that makes pores basically disappear.

Maybelline Matte and Poreless Review

I was lurking the makeup aisles at Ulta for the new L’Oreal Infallible 24 Hour Pro-Matte foundation (Cameran Eubanks from Southern Charm’s favorite BTW) when the Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless foundation caught my eye since it was half the price.

I had heard good things about this foundation so I wanted to try it. Maybelline also has a new Maybelline Fit Me! Dewy + Smooth foundation, but my skin is way too oily to even try to mess with that! I got the foundation in the color 112 Natural Ivory which is the second lightest color. Other foundations that are a good match for my skin for reference- Makeup Forever HD Foundation in N117 and Estee Lauder Double Wear in 1N1 Ivory Nude you can see swatches here.

Let’s go over some of the claims of the Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless foundation : Continue reading Maybelline Matte and Poreless Review

Ray Rice Inspired Makeup Tutorial

I really love this video I think this girl is awesome and hilarious. Megan MacKay is a writer and comedian from Canada and you can check out her website for more info meganmackay.net She combines some of my favorite things in this one: feminism, makeup, humor, calling people out on their shit, and helping women. I hope this video goes even more viral than it has already!

Some of my favorite parts:

  • Foundation in a new shade called The NFL because it will cover up anything just to save face
  • The intersectional feminism eyeshadow primer- And to those people generally the best thing to do is um read a fucking history book.
  • Bronzer time! I love this name it’s so punny it’s ‘Orange You Sad That the American News Source Most Dedicated to Truthful Journalism Turned Out To Be TMZ?’

So yeah be sure to check out this video because this girl is quick and it has a good message. Also, if you don’t want your day to take a turn for the worst I recommend (and this is just s general life tip) to not read the comments.

My BeautyConLA Experience & Insecurities

Last Saturday I went to BeautyConLA and holy crap it was overwhelming. Since 99.9% of the population doesn’t understand what a beauty convention is or why one would exist, let me explain. According to the website “BEAUTYCON IS A FASHION AND BEAUTY COMMUNITY + CONFERENCE FOR THE INTERNET’S MOST INFLUENTIAL BEAUTY AND FASHION ICONS AND THEIR EVER-GROWING NUMBER OF FANS. BEAUTYCON HAS ALREADY TAKEN OVER LA, LONDON + NEW YORK AND NOW, WE’RE HEADING BACK HOME, TO BEAUTIFUL LOS ANGELES! #BEAUTYCONLA” It consisted of a bunch of booths for makeup, hair, and skincare (mostly) products, and had panels of internet/youtube/instagram famous beauty gurus and the like as well as some quickie classes/makeup demonstrations. I had actually planned on seeing some of the panels, but it was so insanely busy and confusing in the convention I never actually made it into one.
