    High-End Makeup To Try in 2018

    One my biggest goals in 2018 is to go completely cruelty-free with my makeup collection. While there are a lot of drugstore brands that are cruelty-free, I find the majority of options are high-end, which means it’s a lot more of an investment. I’ve never had a problem spending money on my makeup since I’m putting it on my face and near my eyes, but it’s still hard to part with my hard earned cash for a mascara. Therefore, I’ve compiled a list of the high-end, cruelty-free products I’d like to try out over the course of 2018 — that way I’m not dropping $400 in one Sephora visit. Let’s…

It’s like putting on a cute outfit — it makes me feel like my best self and I wouldn’t know a better way to start my day than at my desk with my mirror and eyeshadow brush in hand. Below are my favorite everyday makeup products from the drugstore. As a preface, I enjoy using cruelty-free products (that’s why you’ll see a lot of NYX and some Essence), so…

    August Ipsy Bag: Good Vibes Only

    This is my fourth (maybe fifth) month of being an ipsy subscriber, and I absolutely love it — I talk about my obsession so much I’ve turned my friends into subscribers. What I love about ipsy (over other subscription services like it) is that I get a cute bag in addition to new beauty products every month. Like most girls I know, I love having random bags to stick all my crap in, so these glam bags have filled a gap I didn’t know was present in my life (additionally, they are great for travel). I decided to sign up for ipsy because I found that, as I was educating…
