A Pale Girl’s Guide to Bronzing and Contouring


Summer’s coming, and you know what that means? Tropical vacations and beautiful, sun-tanned skin. Hah. In my dreams.

If you’re a pale girl like myself (MAC NW20), then you know the woes of trying to find the perfect bronzing and contouring products. Too warm and you look like an Oompa Loompa. Too cool and you look like you’ve been rolling around in the dirt. What’s a pasty girl to do? I’ve rounded up the (mostly) matte bronzers from my collection to help you find your perfect product.

Spring Lip Picks [Drugstore Edition]


I know, I know… Technically spring started about a month ago. But here in DC, the weather is only starting to be warm enough for skirts and sandals, so forgive me for letting my brain continue to hibernate. I love spring– it might even be my favorite season. And now that the sun is finally starting to shine, I’m switching up my lip looks: wine for watermelon and aubergine for orchid.

In my opinion, changing your lip color is the easiest way to change the overall feel of your makeup. For me, swiping on a new color is like swiping on another personality. I’ve sorted through my stash to find the lip products I expect to be reaching for most this season.
