Best Liquid Eyeliner!
This liquid eyeliner is hands down a staple in my makeup bag. The applicator makes it super easy to create precise, fluid lines and most importantly, it does not crack, smudge, or transfer! I’ve had issues with liquid eyeliners in the past as they tend to clump and crack when trying to layer, but this liner is a dream to work with. It dries down quickly and it has an insanely opaque matte black finish. For $12, it’s a steal! SEPHORA COLLECTION - Long Lasting Eyeliner High Precision Brush

Curly to Straight- NO FRIZZ!
Curly to Straight- NO FRIZZ!
Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE my curls- but some days I like to switch things up and the REVLON - One-Step Volumizer Hair Dryer has made this possible. I can effectively blowout my hair from root to tip- frizz free, in just 35 minutes! It’s super lightweight and the boar bristles smooth/tame my curls effortlessly with very little tension. If you’re someone who frequents Dry Bar, or simply someone who loves a good blowout, I highly recommend this tool!

I constantly switch up my skincare routine according to my skin’s needs, but I’ve been LOVING these products lately! I start by cleansing my face in the shower using CeraVe - Hydrating Facial CleanserIt gently cleanses without stripping my skin of its natural oils and it contains hyaluronic acid, which helps retain moisture. I then tone using HERITAGE STORE - Rosewater Sprayas it has anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce redness. For serum, my staple is SKINCEUTICALS - Hyaluronic Acid Intensifier SerumIt acts as a natural humectant that provides long lasting hydration and it plumps the skin- minimizing fine lines and wrinkles! To moisturize I go in with YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream with Ashwagandha + ReishiIt’s formulated with squalane which mimics the skin’s natural oils to boost hydration and it gives my skin a healthy glow. For my undereyes, I apply DRUNK ELEPHANT - Shaba Complex Firming Eye SerumThis eye cream is a game changer! It improves radiance and slows down signs of aging before they even begin! This is easily the most important part of my skincare routine- SUNSCREEN! To protect my skin from the sun, I use elta md SKINCARE - UV Clear Broad Spectrum SPF 46I love this sunscreen because it’s super light weight and it doesn’t leave a white cast. It’s also beautiful under makeup! Last but not least, I hydrate my lips using the LANEIGE - Lip Sleeping Mask It smells like a dream and makes my lips feel pillow soft!

$9 Dupe for Too Faced Better Than Sex!
$9 Dupe for Too Faced Better Than Sex!
I’ll admit, I’m a total mascara snob so when I saw an ad for MAYBELLINE - Falsies Lash Lift Mascara I purchased it immediately because who doesn’t want an instant lash lift effect?! To my surprise it lived up to every expectation and more! In fact, I’d say Falsies Lash Lift is a total dupe for the cult fave, Too Faced - Better Than Sex Mascara The wand is practically identical and both formulas are designed to thicken, lengthen, and curl for a va-va-voom effect. The most impressive difference is that Falsies Lash Lift doesn’t flake, while Better Than Sex does. With this in mind, think twice before spending $25 on a mascara when you can spend $9!
