YG Moonshot Cosmetics Fall Makeup Tutorial + Product Review | Korean Beauty Products

If you’ve seen my Instagram you might already know that I was just in South Korea earlier this month.  It seemed like such a crazy quick trip, but I was lucky enough to visit the Moonshot Cosmetics flagship store in Samcheong-dong while I was there!  I got my hands on some of their newest products from the “The First Moon Drawing” collection (just launched September 20th!) and their newly reformulated

Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Review | First Impressions

Laura Mercier has been one of my favorite beauty brands dating all the way back to Highschool, when the only product I could comfortably apply was their cult classic Tinted Moisturizer.  So needless to say, I was really interested when I began to see the new Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Foundation teased all over social media.  But what is Flawless Fusion? Here’s what the brand says: “Laura believes that

My Color Correcting Foundation Routine

It took me a long time to finally try color correcting because I always thought it would lead to too heavy of a look, but what’s actually so great about it is that it neutralizes unwanted tones so you can correct instead of conceal and in the end, use less product.  Today I’ve partnered with MEMEBOX to show you my Color Correcting Foundation Routine using their Pony Effect Color Correcting

What is Rainbow Masking?! MemeBox BonVivant Jelly Clay Mask Review

It’s been a while since I reviewed a new beauty product, so I figured it would be the perfect time to introduce this new trend of “Rainbow Masking.”   I’ve come to recognize that a one-mask-fits-all approach isn’t really working for me anymore.  I would end up spot treating my oil zones only to have to follow up with a sheet mask for my dry areas, doubling the amount of time

My Korean Beauty Guru (aka best friend) recently gifted me some top-rated K-Beauty products guaranteeing to leave me with a dewy complexion and bouncy, touchable hair.  From Sheep Steam Hair Masks to Lip Masks and the Miracle Cleansing Sticks in between, here is a review of my latest Korean Beauty haul!

How to Give Yourself a Microdermabrasion Facial at Home

Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic procedure that exfoliates and removes the topmost layer of dry, dead skin cells by use of tiny crystals.  The general idea is that once the stratum corneum (that topmost layer) is removed, the body interprets the exfoliation as a mild injury and rushes to replace the lost skin cells with new and healthy ones.  The skin’s surface is left improved, soft, glowing, and sans blemishes, fine lines, and

Battle of the Lip Balms

Lip balms don’t get enough credit.  They may not be able to create a vampy attitude like our favorite dark red lipstick or add that pop of shimmer like our can’t-live-without lip gloss, but without lip balm a perfect pout would never be possible.  Here are the products that have the ability to soothe and nourish even the dryest, most chapped of Winter lips as we transition into dewy, Spring beauty.

Get Unready with Me | Nighttime Routine

The process of getting all dolled up and feeling glam can be a lot of fun, but there is nothing quite like coming home after a long night out and crawling into bed.  As easy as it is to fall asleep immediately, I’ve been making a conscious effort lately to take care of my skin before doing so.  Get unready with me and see some of my favorite new skincare products specifically

Microdermabrasion At Home

Todays product spotlight is on Exuviance Triple Microdermabrasion Face Polish.  In salon microdermabrasions, tiny crystals are sprayed onto the skin to remove the outer layer and reveal more luminous skin.  They generally take about half an hour, cost around $200, and can require up to 10 treatments for optimal results.  In using the Triple Microdermabrasion Face Polish for the past month I’ve found it to be a quality at-home alternative.  It
