VIDEO: Affordable Winter Fashion Lookbook ft. Tobi

Sunday, January 14, 2018

Today I'm sharing some new cute affordable clothing I received from Tobi! I styled a couple comfy and a dressy outfit that is perfect for winter, or fall. I love the muted mauve colors this time of year, and sleeve cut outs are a huge trend right now. I kept accessories minimal, and chose a few statement pieces for the dressy outfit.

VIDEO: Irresistible Me Magnetic Eyelash Extensions Review & Tutorial - How to Apply Magnetic Lashes

Thursday, January 11, 2018

Magnetic eyelashes are the latest in beauty innovation, but are they worth a try? I'm sharing an in-depth review on the Irresistible Me Magnetic Eyelash Extensions, which come in both half and full lash sets. I was super intrigued by the product because although I love the look of falsies, I've never been one to enjoy wearing them or have the patience to fool with them. I have never understood how some people wear them every day!

How to Apply Magnetic Eyelashes

I decided to give these a try because they require NO glue- none! I was sold right there. No fussing with getting the glue the right consistency or ruining your eyeliner and mascara in the process. The magnetic lashes are easy to apply (once you get the hang of it), even easier to remove, and don't mess up your makeup in the process.
The Irresistible Me ones come in a very natural cut, that contains thin hairs that vary in length. I personally prefer the half lashes, because they just have one tiny magnet, instead of 2 like the full lash strip. They also look more natural, and although they're not super dramatic, they add a nice flare to the tips without looking overdone.

Watch my video review & tutorial above to see how to apply them!

Smashbox Cosmetics recently came out with their Photo Edit Eyeshadow Trios and Always On Liquid Lipsticks, which I have been loving recently! They are both highly-pigmented products, that range from wearable nudes to color-packed drama.

I used both to create this wearable look for brown, hazel or green eyes, although any eye color can rock this look!

Best Winter Beauty Products

Considering the #BombCyclone, or #Blizzard2018 is blanketing the East Coast right now, what better time to share the best winter beauty products for hair and skincare! Luckily I was not a victim of this blizzard, but it has been in the single digit temps in my area making it unbearable.

My hair especially suffers in the winter, because naturally curly hair tends to be the driest hair type.
I've found some of the best products for tangled, dry hair, and these are great for all hair types.Many also suffer from dry, flaky skin in the winter, and it's all due to practically 0% moisture content in the air. I'm sharing some of my favorite body products and facial skincare products for dry skin.

How to Refresh Naturally Curly Hair

If you have naturally curly hair, you may know how bad it can be for your hair to wash it daily. I always recommend at least waiting 2-3 days in between washes if possible, because naturally curly hair tends to be very dry. "Refreshing" your curls allows you to extend your style, and prevents the need to wash and restyle it.

I've always struggled with finding the perfect routine to refresh my curly hair, but it's all about how you sleep on your hair the night before that keeps it looks great the next day. It's easy for curls to get tangled, loose their shape, and look dry and limp.

I've discovered the best products for refreshing my curls, and I'm sharing how I use them to get rid of frizz, add moisture, and hold that lasts.
