Pucker up and get ready for your new lip crush—MDMflow. Inspired by 90’s Hip Hop culture, this London-based premium beauty brand is the creation of Florence Adepoju. The cruelty-free and handmade lipsticks come in some seriously bold and fun shades, including Vamp (which I need in my life ASAP). I can’t get enough of the gold tubes it comes in. And I love how each of these hot shades has a little story of how it was inspired. I personally had a chance to try out three shades: Supreme, Bossy, and Di La La. Each one is creamy when applied, but comes to an…
I may not be a professional makeup artist or beauty guru, but I have learned a few things over the years. Like…how to make that holiday makeup you worked so hard on last throughout the night. And it’s a lot easier than you imagined. I have three tips to share with you, that anyone can master. All it takes is investing in a few key beauty products. Primer Before an ounce of makeup touches your face, make sure to use a primer. I usually apply this to my face after my moisturizer. This will help your makeup last throughout the night,…
When it comes to false lashes, where do I even start? I think they’re awesome, but for some reason I find it nearly impossible to put them on myself. Even the lashes with self-adhesive backing. I’m so awkward sometimes. So, basically I don’t wear them unless a pro applies them. That’s why I was really excited to try out Physician’s Formula Eye Booster Instant Lash Extension Kit. Physician’s Formula claims that you get the most incredible “life changing” lash results, without having to deal with what comes along with false lashes. And that in just 2 minutes you should have…
No matter what season we’re in, there’s always a reason to keep pumpkin skin care products in your life. Yes, I’m about that pumpkin. I know the founder behind the Protective Nourishment skin care line and she recently gave me a few goodies to try out. I wrote a review on her Blueberry Scrub Mask here. This time, I tried out the Protective Nourishment Pumpkin Peel. According to LiveStrong.com, Pumpkin is rich in vitamin A, which soothes and softens your skin, and vitamin C, an antioxidant that can help to remedy damage produced by free radicals. They also state that…

No excuses guys! I have found 2 of the easiest and natural DIY hair masks possibly ever. I know that’s a bold statement to make. I was inspired by a tour of Northgate Markets here in Southern California. I blame it all on the fresh veggies and fruits that caught my eye with their stunning colors. I’m hoping the next time you walk into your local market, you’re going to look at your produce department a lot differently.
As the fall leaves tumble into the days of winter, one thing is guaranteed to happen—dry skin. I don’t know about you, but I am not a fan. In fact, I hate it. This is when I bust out my beloved body butters. One that I have happily added to my winter skin regime is the Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter in Be Comforted Warm Apple Crisp. I really wish this was a scratch-and-sniff kind of post, because this stuff smells amaze! But does it work?
Busy! Busy! Busy! That’s been the story of my life lately. And with all of the traveling I’ve been doing, it seems there’s never any time for well…anything. Especially, anything in the beauty department. How many times have you been flying coast to coast and wished you had stopped to pick up your favorite face wash or even just got a quick mani and pedi? If you’re traveling via the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), you’re going to love the beauty insider info I have for you!
As if Cover FX couldn’t get any cooler with customization these days. Say hello to Cover FX Custom Infusion Drops. Cover FX invited us to a special event with Chef Claudia Sandoval (winner of Master Chef, Season 6). She taught us how to make a delectable dessert inspired by the drops. Of course in this case we used edible ingredients.
You’ve all heard the phrase “the bee’s knees” haven’t you? It became popular in the 1920’s as a way to describe something as being excellent. That’s kind of how I feel about these Burt’s Bees products. To me, they are the bee’s knees. And they are perfect year-round. But, I especially love them during the fall and winter seasons. Here are this month’s beauty favorites.
Over the years, the idea of cleansing your face has changed drastically. The tools we use and technology play such a huge part—this goes for women and men. Yes, men too! A few weeks ago, my good friend Jeshua and I were invited out to Baxter Finley Barber & Shop in L.A. to check out the new Clarisonic Alpha Fit for men. It’s a new cleansing system designed specifically for a man’s face.
True story…I’ve been taking selfies before selfies were “a thing.” If you left your camera laying around, more than likely you found selfies of me making insane faces. Today, selfies are totally normal. So much in fact, that my good friend and makeup artist extraordinaire Luis published #beautiful by Luis Casco—50 Easy-to-create selfie-ready beauty looks. And I’m going to give you a chance to win your very own autographed copy!
I wouldn’t say I was obsessed with Urban Decay…OK…maybe a little bit. Just a tiny bit. Can you blame me? They are pretty amazing. I was just invited to a little blogger preview last month where I was able to get my hands on a few of their newest products. I was in UD heaven! I wanted to share a few of them with you today. Let’s start with the eyes and a palette everyone was lusting after.
Where are my drybar fans? I know there are a lot of you out there. I was sent a complimentary sample of The Southern Comfort in a Box to try out and I just had to share it with you.
