I have always valued a more natural approach to beauty especially with the products I use. This was important to me in this new venture, as well. Enter my friend Rahki, an advanced nurse injector, who told me about Xeomin. Continue Reading

I always get asked “What color shadow looks best with brown eyes?” I could just list off a bunch of eyeshadow colors, but instead I’ve decided to create a look for you guys with some of my favorite products. A few weeks ago, we got the chance to meet some amazing ladies from Colour Pop. To be honest, I had never used the brand before, but I was excited to see what it was all about. They’re famous for their super shock shadows that are super sparkly & metallic (pictured above).
