Summer Lovin’

Summer beauty products: tinted moisturizer, lipstick, and bronzer

I have a love-hate relationship with summer skincare and beauty. On the one hand, I love the low-key, stress-free, easygoing summer vibe. On the other hand, summer skin can be kinda gross, between greasy sunscreen, sweat, and dehydration.

Really, it’s all about choosing the right products, and opting for a less-is-more attitude. These three products have saved me time and time again this summer! Continue reading

Beauty Resolutions

Well, of course I have a lot more to improve on in 2016 than beauty and skin care. But to be 100% honest….working out every day, getting 8 hours of sleep every night, and only eating health food just doesn’t excite me like the thrill of trying a new beauty product. #Truth

So why not make 2016 the year of perfect skin, nailing that fishtail braid, and finally mastering the delicate art of a messy (but not too messy) messy bun? It’s more fun, and a lot more achievable!

Without further ado, here are my beauty resolutions of 2016:

  • Clean my makeup brushes on a regular basis. Because it’s time to grow up already. Buying new makeup brushes because your old ones are gross is worse (and more expensive) than buying new underwear because you’re too lazy to do laundry. Time to enter adulthood.
  • Calm my skin, once and for all. Does anyone else have the fun of dealing with blemishes and flaky, dry skin–at the same time? Apparently this has a lot to do with having really sensitive skin. No wonder my skin felt so happy with really gentle cleansers. So my big goal is to tackle the heart of the problem, by using super gentle products to help calm redness and sensitivity. So far I’ve heard great things about First Aid Beauty, as well as the Mega Mushroom line of Origins. Anyone else have other suggestions?
  • Master some hairstyles, already! Like really pretty braids, or beachy waves. If anyone wants to recommend some great YouTube tutorials, please let me know!
  • Be kind to my hair. Speaking of hair, my poor hair is so frazzled from going blonde. Time for a serious trim. And I’m toying with the idea of returning to my natural brunette…but I’m undecided.

I’ve love to know: do you have beauty/skincare/hair resolutions? What are they, and what’s your game plan?
