My Pre-Wedding Skincare Routine

About a year ago, I discovered the magic of skincare. It was never something I thought much about, but once I began experimenting, I was hooked. What better way to feel (and look!) like a magical, glowy goddess than to indulge in a daily pamper session?

I’ve used a number of products in the past—both good and bad. But with my wedding a little over a month a way (Wait, what?!) I wanted to be extra kind to my skin. I’ve been using these products over the past several weeks, and my skin has never looked better. I know I can count on them to leave me looking my best for my big day.

Best of Beauty 2015

Hi friends! Look who’s finally written their 2015 best of beauty post! It only took a bajillion years…

Asking me to pick my favorite makeup products is like asking me to pick a favorite child—it just can’t be done. I love all of them for different reasons. (Er…most of them, anyway.) That’s why, initially, I wasn’t going to write a 2015 favorites post. January is almost over, everyone else has done it, and I worried no one would want to read it. But then, one of my friends asked me to write it, and here I am. I’ve caved. Not all of these were 2015 discoveries, but I definitely used the heck out of all of them last year! I decided to save my skincare favorites for a future post—I’m long overdo for an updated skincare routine anyhow!

Without further ado, here’s my 2015 All Star Lineup!

7 Products in 7 Minutes: Easy Drugstore Makeup for Everyday

BeforeAfter

Despite what my boyfriend might tell you, I am capable of finishing my makeup in under ten minutes. It might be a bit of a struggle, and it might not happen often, but it can be done. The trick, I’ve found, is to select reliable products that you know work for you.

Today I’m sharing a 7 minute makeup routine that’s great for those days when you need to look polished in a pinch. And best of all? All of the products come from the drugstore, so it’s super affordable!

A higher price tag doesn’t always mean higher quality. In this mini series, I’m comparing some of my favorite high end products with their drugstore equivalents. Today, we’re on to the fun stuff: eyes and lips!

(And in case you missed it, be sure to check out part 1, where I reviewed some of my most-loved face products.)

High End vs. Drugstore (Part One)

As glorious as it would be to own the entire NARS collection, that just isn’t feasible. At least, not on my budget. And in some cases, expensive makeup isn’t always better makeup. I’ve decided to create a list  of my favorite stand-alone products from high end brands alongside their drugstore counterparts to see how they stand up.

In Part 1, I’ll compare some of my favorite face products:
