Daily Skincare Routine Using One Brand

This is my first blog post in a long, long time, but I’m so excited to get back to it! I recently did a 2 week experiment where I used one brand only (gasp!) everyday for my morning and evening routines. The purpose was initially to test out the products for the Lixir line and review them, which is partially what this post is. But once I the two weeks passed, I realized this could also be a daily routine post for those of us out there looking to develop a daily routine that is not too complicated, yet effective and that won’t take too much time.

I’ve always loved masking, but I’ve come a long way since my days of experimenting with bar soap on my cousin’s face (she was meeting her crush, I thought her lurking acne could use a drying mask, and we had no money; BAM, SCIENCE!). As a 14 year old with no job, I had to be creative, but boy did it pay out. In this post I share with you tips and tricks I’ve learned over the years, and that will hopefully help you make the most of your face masks.

10 Best Makeup Discoveries of 2016

After a long absence from the blogosphere, I thought I should come back with a big fat article to make up for it. My fascination with makeup really found an outlet during this crazy, incredible year, when I decided to start my blog back in July. And while I love trying out tons of makeup products for reviews, I enjoy it much better when I discover that one amazing product that I would be content with if tomorrow I could only own one of each makeup product category.

Highlighter Focus: Topshop Chameleon Glow in U-Turn

A few days ago I went out for dinner with my friend Priscilla, and while walking around Alexanderplatz we saw that a new Topshop store had opened at the Galeria mall. We  ended up spending a good 15 minutes swatching lipsticks and what have you in the makeup section. I had just gotten a phone job offer, so it was a euphoric time, perfect for some shopping! Little did I know I would come out with the Chameleon highlighter, appropriately named U-Turn.  Continue reading “Highlighter Focus: Topshop Chameleon Glow in U-Turn”

So for this first article I wanted to dissect a few clichés and stereotypes many people tend to have on those of us who almost never leave the house without some form of makeup on their face.
