Originally a hit in Korea, lip tints have become widespread and popular in the United States over the years – for a multitude reasons. In my younger years of wearing makeup, I loved traditional lip gloss – no matter how sticky it was. Somehow, I was just obsessed with how the gloss looked on my lips, as it gave a much fuller appearance. As I got older, I couldn’t be bothered by my hair getting stuck in the gloss or just feeling sticky all the time. Lipsticks are often drying to my lips, so I’ve always steered clear from those whenever possible. I also didn’t like how the color would often transfer onto my teeth. Once I was introduced to lip tints, my whole lip game changed!

Finding an esthetician I really love in our new neighborhood has honestly been a huge challenge for me. While I have tried a few in the area, I haven’t found one that I connect with on a personal level, and one that delivers quality services at reasonable prices. Not only do frequent facials add up quickly, sometimes the idea of having to brave the heat for a while in the car as I make my way to an esthetician deters me. First world problems for someone living in the desert… I know! With that said, I have been extra proactive with home care when it comes to my face and neck. As I approach my 30’s, it has become super important for me to take all the preventative measures I can to halt the aging process. This involves staying consistent with a solid routine, and using quality products. Today, I’ll be sharing more about Lionesse Gem Skin Care’s Morganite Collection, which has been a pivotal part of my home care routine at night, helping me achieve balance and a healthy glow!
If there’s one beauty brand that I’ve been loyal to since my early make-up days, it’s Chanel. Well, to be fair, you can’t go wrong with Chanel anything… but their beauty products have definitely remained consistently exceptional over the years. Last week, I had to make a Nordstrom trip to replenish part of my collection, and thought I’d share my recent Chanel beauty empties that I obviously love and swear by! I don’t know if it’s just me, but I have trouble throwing away empty bottles that are pretty. After I took my flatlay, my boyfriend had to ask me, “are these just empty bottles?!” Haha. I’m convinced that I’ll collect all my Chanel empties and make my own little art piece with them someday… not a terrible idea, right?

Growing up, I’ve always been a fan of Asian beauty products. I recently discovered Japanese brand, Dermarise, available at Tohomart. Dermarise has been developed & sold in Japan in high-end salons for more than 10 years, and is well-acclaimed by celebrities today. Lately, I’ve been loving their Cyclic Serum P.A. & Cyclic Cream c-PA. A quality serum and moisturizer are two staples my skin care routine cannot live without! Though I’ve tried many serums and moisturizers in my lifetime, these definitely stand at the top of my ‘favorites’ list.

C. Joybell C. once said, “you’re never fully dressed without perfume.” A good one, that is. I’ve always resonated with this quote because I believe that the perfume a woman wears speaks volumes about her personality! Today, I wanted to share with you a spring/summer fragrance that I’ve been loving lately. It’s the flower of the future, better known as Mugler’s Alien Flora Futura. It’s a relatively new one that became available in April of this year. Personally, I’m an avid lover of perfumes with floral notes, but I also appreciate ones with just the right amount of zest. Alien Flora Futura is just that and more — and I’m so excited to get into the details!
This year, I started incorporating witch hazel into my everyday beauty routine. As a skincare fanatic constantly trying new products daily, I was astounded to learn that a guy friend of mine (who isn’t gay by the way) knew of this holy grail product that I had been living years without! Now, I can’t imagine getting through the day without using it. Honestly, I don’t even know how we got onto the topic, but we started talking about our skincare regimen and this casually came up in conversation. I am so glad it did!
