R E V I E W :: Maybelline MasterFix Setting Powder & Dream Brightening Creamy Concealer

Hey, guys! Today’s review is for two drugstore makeup products, both by Maybelline. Maybelline is probably my favorite drug store makeup brand! Not for any reason other than that everytime I go to Target to buy makeup, I always leave with Maybelline products (and Physician’s Formula, can’t forget them!). For this Target trip, I specifically needed setting powder and concealer.   When looking for concealer, I was looking for something with decent coverage, but also something that wasn’t liquid and creamy because I stopped wearing heavy creams last summer (my skin is 1,000,000 times better now, btw). I went with the Dream Brightening Creamy Concealer stick in the shade “fair”. ...

That type of silence doesn’t happen often in normal life!However, Every time I hike I re-remember how challenging hiking is, and also how much coming DOWN the...

D I Y :: All Natural Bronzer

Hey, guys! Today’s post is for DIY bronzer! As you may or may not know, I love makeup. I love everything about it….except that it’s loaded with chemicals. As someone who likes to eat as clean and chemical free as possible, the thought that I’m putting a bunch of chemicals on my face anyway is always in the background while I’m doing my makeup. I’ve switched my skin care routine and I got rid of all moisturizers that weren’t coconut oil, or other 100% natural oils. Read more about that here. Now, I can eliminate ONE more unnatural thing from the list: bronzer! I found this recipe on Pinterest from...

D I Y :: How to Distress Denim

Ripped jeans. Stylish. Trendy.

D I Y :: Turmeric Teeth Whitening

Happy Halloween!!!! Today I am sharing a recipe for natural teeth whitening with turmeric! A couple of months back a friend at work mentioned how she whitens her teeth with turmeric, and as someone who is obsessed with natural beauty solutions, I was all ears! I had never heard about such a thing before, and she told me it’s so easy and you can notice a difference after doing it just one time! That same night I went home to look it up on Pinterest, and sure enough there were tons of recipes for turmeric teeth whitening!! I have been doing it randomly throughout the week ever since, and I...
