REVIEW & SWATCHES: Urban Decay Afterglow Blush (all shades)

Wooooah, it's been a long time since I was this excited about a new product release. You guys already know I'm the biggest sucker for blush and Urban Decay's brand new Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Blush is a huge reason for me to pinch myself (no need to pinch the cheeks because dang, these guys are full of dramatic color already).

Here are the 12 shades of Afterglow which have a variety of everyday wearable neutrals as well as some really vibrant pops of bold color in both matte and shimmer finishes.

March Favorites

Hey everyone! Just wanted to share this month's favorites recap. As you probably could already tell, Spring is the time when I naturally go gaga for bright lipsticks but I really enjoy pairing them with a bold liquid line using my new HG favorite liquid eyeliner. Seriously, it's so precise and amazing!

Check out my faves video below:

maxi dress | Faithfull the Brand maxi dress (also worn here)

Are there any new products that you've been loving this month? What products do you switch up for Spring? Let me know in the comments!

Lipstick 101: How to Apply Lipstick Perfectly

I bet you didn't know you were applying your lipstick wrong!

Well, okay, maybe there's no wrong way to apply lipstick but I didn't realize that there was a technique until I was recently helping my lipstick-novice friend try a dashing new shade of scarlet and she asked "How do I apply it?"

Woah. Lightbulb moment. Bright lips take some serious planning to make application look perfect. After years of experimenting with every lipstick shade under the sun, I took this fact for granted and completely glossed over the fact that there indeed are steps that make the process way easier!

Therefore, my Lipstick 101 tutorial was born. (If you haven't seen the rest of my 101 Basics series, you can check them out on youtube or on the blog here.) Some of you might be like me and usually apply it straight from the tube but then need to amp it up on date night so I shared two different ways to have the perfect (and easy) lipstick application. Check out the video & swatches below!
