Manicure Monday: NARS Night Out

You know how when you're craving a certain food, when you finally eat it it's so satisfying? I feel that way about NARS Night Out. It's been a good long while since I've worn a true blue on my nails and I was itching for the perfect bright cream blue that wasn't too navy or green. I've gotta say when this one came in the mail I was immediately smitten. Summertime sadness nails? Ohhh yes please!

Interview with Soompi

Hey everyone! I wanted to share a recent interview I did with A few of you old school FHTT fans might remember that I started out posting little makeup tutorials in the Soompi forums years ago (2007!) which actually led to the creation of my blog, so I feel like I have a lot that I owe to the Soompi community for helping my site grow into what it is now. I'm truly honored and humbled for things to have come around full circle like that.

If you are interested in reading the article, click on the image above or check it out here.

Thank you so much to Soompi, as well as all you Soompiers out there who followed along on my journey experimenting with everything from circle lenses to eyelid tape to sharing monolid tutorials and my acne story. It has been, and still is, an incredible experience being open and sharing my life and experiences with you guys. As long as my blogs and videos can encourage women to be self-confident, knowledgeable, and beautiful (inside and out), I feel endlessly blessed to be working for something greater than myself.

I love you guys so much! :)

2NE1 Park Bom Makeup Tutorial feat. Martina (Eat Your Kimchi)

Let me start out by saying that this is one of my favorite collaborations I've done! It's been quite a long time since I did a Kpop makeup tutorial for you guys but the stars aligned when my friends Simon and Martina of Eat Your Kimchi (fabulous Youtube channel about Kpop and Korean culture and food) came to LA and stayed with us for a few days. 

What is that you said? A Youtuber in my home who loves girly things, makeup, Kpop, and PINK was having an extended sleepover? Ooooh, you know that means we had to do record a tutorial. ;) 

It just so happens that both our favorite Kpop bands is the same: 2NE1. May I present to you a Park Bom makeup look. Vid and more below!

Manicure Monday: Ciate Shell Manicure Wish Upon A Starfish

Happy Manicure Monday and I hope you had an amazing 4th of July weekend! Today I have a new product from Ciaté to share with you guys: the SHELL manicure.

I don't know about you but I'm a big fan of anything iridescent like seashells so having crushed shells on my nails sounded mighty intriguing. Would it be sparkling? Would it be rough? Would it fall off in a day?

REVIEW & SWATCHES: NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow

Hey everyone! Today I wanted to share a review of the brand new Dual Intensity Eyeshadows from NARS. This is a fresh formula which is particularly special because you can use it dry for a traditional eyeshadow experience or add a drop of water to up the ante and make it even more opaque and dramatic.

NARS says these shadows have a sheer, luminous finish when applied dry but I was really interested to see if the performance was smooth and usable even if I didn't want to use it wet. The dry-to-wet formulas I've tested in the past have been less than impressive so I really wanted to see if this would change my perception. Lets check out Himalia and Cassiopeia below!
