The Best Mascara Cocktail For Longer, Fuller Lashes

You guys, I finally crafted the perfect mascara cocktail to achieve a longer, fuller lashes. It didn’t hit me right away—in fact, it actually took two friends and four random strangers commenting on my eyelashes last week for me to realize that whatever I was doing was working!This beauty tip is too good not to share with you all. I’m not sure if it’s the products or the technique, but I’d like to think it’s a combination of both. So here it goes…First, I apply a coat of Revlon Dramatic Definition Mascara.

My Favorite Full Coverage Concealer

Would you ever splurge on a tube of $25 concealer? If you ever decide to, make sure it’s this Tarte Double Duty Shape Tape Contour Concealer. It’s the best full coverage concealer I’ve tried to date, and I’m obsessed with the long-wear finish! I purchased the “Fair Neutral” shade and I was pretty happy with the pigment. The doe-foot applicator is strangely oversized but somehow just works the way I want it to (so I can control how much product I’m dispensing under my eye). I’ve found that if I apply small dots in a pie shape and the blend with my BeautyBlender (remember the pounce method) it has a nice natural looking finish.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Beauty Picks Under $100

There’s less than one week left of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, or as I like to call it, the fashion apocalypse. Is it just me or is this year’s sale absolute pandemonium? Things were selling out left and right. I even found myself stalking the website in hopes someone would return a pair of AG skinny jeans in my size (praise the fashion gods, I was able to scoop up a pair). You might be sick of hearing about this sale but either way, now is the best time to stock up on things you don’t have to pay full price for.

Cream Of The Crop: A Complete Eye Contour Cream

Let’s talk about bad beauty habits. I’ll start—I always go to bed much later than I actually should. And unfortunately, I’m facing some pretty dark consequences. While I would love to tell you that losing beauty sleep has no effect on my face, the truth is that my under eyes cannot tell a lie.

3 Women, 1 Pixi Peel & Polish

About a month ago, I received a complimentary package from Pixi beauty. The brand graciously sent me not one, not two, but three sets of Pixi Peel & Polish. Unlike my usual beauty product reviews, I thought I’d try something a little different this time. Finding great skincare products is a feat in itself but finding great skincare products for your 20s, 30s or 40s can be even more difficult.

It’s Here! My Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks

The biggest sale of the year is here! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (Early Access) kicked off today. It’s always one of the highlights of my summer because I’m able to stock up on so many great items for the fall and winter season and save so much. I know, it feels a little strange shopping for the cooler seasons when it’s SO HUMID outside.  But I learned my lesson last year when I didn’t end up getting everything I had on my wish list.

Summer Staple: Blue Linen Shorts

There’s nothing better than a four day weekend, amiright?! As I mentioned on my Instagram, I spent a few days in Deep Creek Lake with my husband and his parents. We love coming here to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. The weather in Deep Creek is typically a little bit cooler than the city, but the past few days have been warmer than usual (around 80 degrees), so skinny jeans was not an option! Usually I prefer wearing casual dresses but these blue linen shorts have become my summertime staple. They look great with this pleated top (which is currently marked down to $20)! And they can easily be dressed up or down.
