Favorites | Summer Pink Lipsticks (Swatches & Mini Reviews)

To my pink lipstick lovers,

I want to share my favorite pink lipsticks for this summer! Yes, I said summer which is just around the corner...can you believe it? Summer is almost here! I can't wait to enjoy shorts, mini skirts and leggings this summer paired with some awesome pumps and sandals. I plan to fully embrace my feminine side thi summer.

Keep in mind, pink lipsticks take up about 85% of my lipstick collection, so I will be doing my favorite pink lipsticks for Fall in August!

Here are my top 6 favorite PINK lipsticks:

Freelance Makeup Artist Series | Tools

Hi my lovlies!

For the longest time I said that I would do a freelance makeup artist series, so here it is! I've finally done it! The first video is about the tools I carry and recommend for any MUA. Tools are essential for you to create an outstanding look, from sanitizing your hands and products to setting the face to clean ups. Tools are what make your job easy!

Tools -
  • Hand Sanitizer - A MUST! Make sure your hands are clean at all times before touching each and every client
  • Wet Ones - to clean tabletop and/or work area
  • 91% Alcohol -  to sanitize powder makeup and possibly lipsticks
  • Baby or makeup wipes
  • Color Wheel
  • Face Charts
  • Alcohol Pads -  to clean stainless steel tools
  • Toothpaste & disposable toothbrushes
  • Business cards
  • Blotting tissue
  • Brow stencils (optional)
  • Lip scrub or travel toothbrush
  • Clear tape -  great for creating a clean, sharp look


Review | Dickinson's Original Witch Hazel Gentle Skin Cleanser

Are any of you skincare fanatics like myself?

When I say I'm obessed, I mean it! I'll purchase anything that will help keep my skin feeling soft, looking flawless and supple. After well over 6 months, I wanted to share a great product from the Dickinson's Original Witch Hazel line. I did review the Pore Perfecting Toner and I swear by it -- I use the toner in my professional makeup kit and on myself.

**My skin type is Normal. In the winter it gets a bit dry and the 
summer a bit oily which is normal for those with normal skin**

The Dickinson's Original Witch Hazel Gentle Skin Cleanser is something I picked up on a whim. I was looking around for a new bottle of the Pore Perfecting Toner and saw that they had two new products; the Gentle Skin Cleanser ad Foaming Facial Wash. I wanted to try both out since I love the toner, so I purchased them both. At first I was skeptical about the Gentle Skin Cleanser because it was a cream cleanser -- I stick to cleanser that foam up because I feel like they do more for my skin. I'm glad, however, that I still purchased the cleanser.
The Gentle Skin Cleanser is a non-irritating, oil free, fragrance free, mild, non-drying formula. It works on all skin types and it gently cleanses and softens the skin while maintaining it's natural moisture balance. It has no soap, no dyes, no parabens and no sulfates as well -- can you say awesome!

According to Dickinson's Original Witch Hazel,
Anything that won't dry out my skin is a major plus and I like that it doesn't leave a thin film either after removing it from my face.


Tutorial | Mint Covered Peaches

Finally a tutorial! This was actually a tutorial I posted a week ago on my YouTube Channel and wanted to post the details of this look here on my blog for you all to check out. Because it was a very gloomy day when I created this tutorial, I wanted to brighten up my day with some color. I opted for mint, lavender and peach because they remind me of spring. I ended up loving this look and going out in the rain with it on!

I had a ball playing around with my BH Cosmetics 88 Cool Matte Palette for the first time. The colors in this palette are just absolutely outstanding, bright and highly pigmented. If you have one, grab it and if not, just grab similar colors and let's go!
