My Skin n Stuff

My first post discussed skin, and hopefully by now you have an idea of what your skin type is. No skin type is better than another, every skin type has their pros and cons, and every skin concern can be corrected via the right skincare. I thought I would share my skincare routine with you and how it has evolved over the years. This might be a longer post so get a snack. Just as a disclaimer, this is what works for my skin, and what works for me may not work for you.

Faux Frecks

Today I’m going to spill the tea on my secrets to faux freckles. They’re a trend I have seen all over social media, and it took me a while to figure out how to make them look as natural and real as possible.

That’s when our skin starts to look dull, dehydrated, and fine lines and wrinkles make their way into our lives. These signs of aging are natural, but not to fear, we can combat aging with our skincare.  Continue reading

Yeah me too. And thats when I learned about the magical world of face and eye shapes. Continue reading

What’s your skin type?

My first post – this is so weird. I’m just going to get right into it. The very beginning of any beauty routine isn’t a foundation, or even a primer (although I’ll get to that eventually). It’s a word some of you might be shocked to see on a beauty blog: skincare. Skincare. Skincare. S k i n c a r e. I’ll say it louder for the people in the back: SKINCARE!!!
