is my new mascara. It’s called The Best Little Mascara Ever. I use the length + definition formula. I am very picky when it comes to Mascara’s. I’m often not won over by popular, trendy ones. This one is made with over 90% natural ingredients, include Candelilla Wax and Restorative Palm Oil. It’s smudge proof, sweat proof, smear proof, so no Panda Eyes. It is easily removed with water, and seems to come off like a tubing mascara (even though it is not). It has a short, curved want to really get onto each lash. It has a wet consistency, yet bonds to lashes fast. You can subscribe to get it delivered on subscription. So bat your lashes, and get the best little mascara ever!

with your purchasing power. It’s easy with Gen See Beauty. This clean makeup company makes products that are sustainable and created ethically. I have been using their Spectator Sport Mascara and Clean Sheen Lip Gloss. I didn’t have high expectations for the Mascara because in the past “clean mascara” has let me down. I was wrong! My favorite thing about it is that it does not transfer. I have long lashes and all mascaras leave black on my brow bone. This one did not, even in extreme humidity. It lengthened, Curled, and Separated as well. There was zero clumping, it’s waterproof, yet easy to remove. My favorite thing about the Lip Gloss is the applicator. It perfectly covers your lips in this super hydrating, clear gloss. It’s major shine with zero color. Their website goes into detail on every ingredient in the cosmetics as well as the packaging. Don’t you wish everyone was as transparent…

I’m rolling into this month with a bunch of new finds. First is the Honey Banana sheet mask from TWOTSP. This Korean sheet mask uses Manuka Honey and Bananas to reduce bacterial growth and fight signs of aging. It hydrates, brightens, and balances. 


At night I’m caring for my under eye skin with Estee Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair Eye Concentrate Matrix. It reduces the look of fine lines and leaves skin firmer and more nourished. I love that it’s lightweight yet effective.

I’m caring for my hair with Loreal’s new Everpure Sulfate Free Glossing pH balanced Shampoo and Conditioner. It leaves hair silky and shiny. The line is anti fade and UV filters to be gentle on color treated hair.

I love going over my dry hair with a few drops of Typology’s Repairing Hair Oil with Acai 5% + Hibiscus. It is a lightweight dry oil that controls and softens hair. This is the finishing touch your hair needs.

On to the body, I love Soap and Glory’s Magnificoco Drop In The Lotion Body Lotion. I love the smell and it absorbs quickly.

Lastly I’m using Sally Hansen’s Insta Dri X Peeps Collection in White. It dries so fast and only needs one coat.

Stay tuned for what I get into this April…

with Elina Organics Dehydrated Complexion Set. If Winter is taking a toll on your skin this set is a great fix. Elina Organics creates Holistic Clinical Skincare. The line contains no chemical additives, and are ph balanced. They are never tested on animals and designed to give you visible results. The set includes the Leave on Under Eye Recovery Mask, the Angelite Crystal Elixir, and the Sahara Souffle face mask. The Eye Mask contains 30% vitamin c, white truffle mushroom extract, Mango Butter, and Vitamin E. It is very hydrating and absorbs well. The Angelite Crystal Elixir is designed to restore collagen and reduce inflammation. This serum uses Angelite extract, Snow Mushroom, and Copper Peptides. Lastly the Sahara Souffle deeply hydrates skin with the power of Camel Milk. It helps with discoloration and leaves skin smooth and even. So refresh your routine with this Elina Organics set, and give winter your glow…

you need to relax. I am loving this unique find. It is MegRhythm’s Gentle Steam Eye Masks. They come in Lavender, Citrus, and Unscented. I got mine from Ulta. This single use eye mask uses inovative technology to heat up instantly. The steam warms and soothes tired eyes, and aids in relaxation. It’s great for the bath, travel, or in bed. All you do is open the sealed pouch the mask comes in, and the heat starts. I think it’s a really nice hangover aid as well.  So get with Megrhythm, and don’t let them know what you got into last night ;)….

I’ve added some additions to my beauty vanity this month. Summer means skins, and here’s how I’m taking care of mine;

At night I’m washing my face with Peter Thomas Roth’s 3% Glycolic Solutions Cleanser. It is anti-aging & exfoliating. It removes my makeup and any excess oil. The Glycolic Acid shrinks pores, improves clarity and reduces fine lines. 

For day and night Eye Cream I’m using Park Perfection’s 2 in 1 Instant Eye Lift. It’s designed to tighten and lift the eye skin while reducing wrinkles and puffiness. It uses minerals, peptides and antioxidants to balance and enhance skin around the eye. 

I was overdue for a new foundation brush. I am very happy with NYX Cosmetics Total Control Drop Foundation Brush. It’s designed for liquid but i’ve used it with my powders as well. It blends perfectly. I love that is it angled to get around every curve of your face. 

I am obsessed with Macadamia Professional Nourishing Repair Oil Spray. It’s officially summer, which means I’m not drying my hair. I let it air dray and then add this spray for a finished look. It has an ultra fine spray and instantly adds shine, moisture, softness, and uv protection. It says to use on wet hair, but I’ve been using it on both wet and dry. 

are easy to attain, thanks to Kelley Baker. Kelley is a renowned makeup artist turned brow expert. She has many celebrity clients, including the Kardashians. “A Kelley Baker brow has a very distinctive, natural look. Kelley is a minimalist and a stickler for straight lines. She believes the key to a sleek, natural brow is not overdoing it with the product. Her signature collection of brow products was created to subtly enhance the brows in a soft manner without them looking drawn on.” I love every product I’ve tried of hers. My favorite is the Camo-Light Highlighter Pencil. It is a soft, creamy , gel like pencil. It camouflages and flaws and adds lift to the brow bone. It brightens the eye area with a subtle light affect, not a glitter or shimmer. I recommend getting the Highlighter Smudge Brush to perfectly blend the product. The Brow Defining Pencil is as good, if not better than any one of tried. It is a long wear formula, that glides on easy with and ultra fine tip. The spooly perfectly blends out the pencil for a precise, natural look. Lastly, the Tinted Brow Gel keeps your perfectly done look in place. It volumizes and tames, and is sweatproof for all day long wear. So even if your life is a mess, get with Kelley Baker to get your brows in order!….

is now a good thing when it comes to skincare. Thanks to Typology and their innovative no b.s. all results approach. The line is sold exclusively online, direct to consumers, in order to offer the highest quality at the best price. The line is like a chic french apothecary meets the Ordinary….but better. “Our philosophy is not to add anything to our products to make them stand out; instead we pare them back and distil each formula down to the most-essential, natural active ingredients.” The line is natural and sourced from sustainable farms using gentle extraction techniques. I will touch on a few of my faves from the line, but I strongly suggest checking out all they have to offer on their site. The 7 Ingredient Micellar Water quickly removes makeup and grime. I use the Hydrolate Organic Orange Blossom, which is a gentle essence that revives tired skin. Next I use the Antioxidant Serum 3% Ferulic Acid + 3% Resveratrol, to firm skin and fight aging. I wait a minute or two and follow with the Radiance Serum 11% Vitamin C, to increase radiance. One of my favorite’s in the line is the Eye Serum 5% Caffeine + 5% Niacinamide. It’s a circulation boosting eye serum that fights dark circles. It’s extremely lightweight and absorbs instantly. I’m somewhat obsessed with the Radiance Night Serum Botanical Blend with White Rose. It is an overnight Oil that boosts radiance and regenerates skin while you sleep. It feels ultra luxurious. It is a must add to cart. The bottles are beautiful and look great out on the counter. So say oui’ to Typology, and let this French brand be your new crush…

with some new faves. Lets start with skincare. I’m loving Algenist Skincare’s AA Barrier Serum. This antioxidant rich serum is designed to defent the skin barrier against pollutants and environmental aggressors. It uses Alguronic Acid, Niacinamide, Phloretin, and Ergothioneine. It improves skins appearance and uneveness. I love the texture of it. It feels luxurious and absorbs well.

My new makeup finds start with a cult favorite foundation. I now understand why Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Foundation is so popular. This 24 hour wear, full coverage, Matte foundation really delivers. It leaves skin looking fresh and flawless yet somehow remains lightweight on the skin. It is heat resistant, and waterproof. There are over 55 shades to choose from.

Taking things to the ever important brows. For the last few years I’ve stuck with NYX’s micro brow pencil. I think it’s better than its expensive competitors. I’m now following it with their Control Freak Eyebrow Gel. It is a clear gel that tames brows and gives a fuller effect. It’s not sticky and stays comfortable all day. So play with some new finds for 2021, I won’t tell last year’s products you’re cheating 😉 

and be good your skin, with Beyou Skincare. The entire brand is built around “self-love and empowering ambitious people to be themselve”. A part of the proceeds from every order goes towards funding women’s education in underrepresented industries.  The line is clean, cruelty free, paraben free, and phthalate free, and helps protect from blue light damage. I have been loving their Caffeine Eye Cream. It is fast absorbing and designed to firm and brighten the eye area. It uses Hyaluronic Acid tot hydrate, and caffeine to revive and illuminate the eye area. It is great for all skin types. So get and give with Beyou Skincare, no one needs to know how late you went to sleep ;)….
