My Morning Skincare Routine

Hello everyone! Today I’m excited to share my updated morning skincare routine with you. This was a doozy to film (confession: I filmed it twice!) but ultimately I wanted to share how effective the new La Roche-Posay Effaclar Acne Treatment System has been working for me. I love 3-step systems that have active ingredients in every step–so I don’t feel like I’m doing nothing half the time. Even the gel cleanser has some pretty great active ingredients! Bottom line: I’m…

September Favorites

Hey guys! I cannot believe September is (nearly) over and we’re officially head-on into Autumn. I had a beautiful month of favorites, y’all. I (re-)discovered my favorite foundation, I’ve fallen in love with a new lip combo, and on the same day that the iPhone 6 was announced, I found out that I passed my board exam for Anesthesiology. What a spectacular month! This month’s favorites video has some snazz and pizazz added–thanks to an investment in Final Cut Pro…

Harper’s Bazaar Glossybox

This month’s Glossybox is pretty special – it has teamed up with the beauty editor of Harper’s Bazaar for an awesomely curated collection of truly high-end items. There’s a (what looks to be) full size Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics lip tar in an anyone-can-wear dark honey shade that likens itself to Clinique’s Black Honey–it’s vampy in the tube but sheers out to a flattering color on the lips.

August Favorites

Click here to view my latest YouTube video – my favorite beauty and non-beauty items for the month of August! I had a great time picking this month’s favorites for you guys – definitely a random assortment, heavier on the non-beauty faves this time around. But no fear–next month’s installment promises to be big on the beauty, as I’ve been testing some products out a little more rigorously than usual so I can be absolutely sure they’re up to standard…

Beauty Recs with Sally Beauty

In my last Sally Beauty post, I offered my custom beauty consultation services to one winner–and that winner was the lovely Elizabeth. My spending limit was $45 so I opted to multitask items: several eyeshadows (suited to her eye color) in one, as well as a gorgeous blush/bronzer combo. I’m loving the “nude everything” trend these days so of course a dusty rose nail color was in order, as was a nude lip pencil. Plus, through the rest of August,…

Little Black Book of Bronzers

A few months ago (gulp) I had the privilege of being sent this awesome “Little Black Book of Bronzers” by Too Faced. The name is definitely a misnomer because it’s actually really, really large–but it’s so friggin’ amazing I just had to share it with you all. It contains their entire collection of bronzers – and you all by now know how much of a fanatic I am for the Milk Chocolate Soleil. The Milk Chocolate variety is perfect for…
