What’s Empty Wednesday

I’m jumping on the Tower Tuesday bandwagon (but on What’s Empty Wednesday)! πŸ”˜ @spongellebeyondcleansing in Freesia Pear from @fabfitfun – I did a full review on this when I first began trying it out and my opinion didn’t change. While I love the concept, it dried my skin out like no other cleanser has before. I definitely won’t be repurchasing. ❌ πŸ”˜ @firstaidbeauty Ultra Repair Cream – Although this was the only lotion I owned that was sensitive enough to hydrate my tattoos immediately after they were done, I didn’t love it for the rest of my body. I will … Continue reading What’s Empty Wednesday

Sponge Sunday – The Super Sponge

Don’t get me wrong, I’ve tried. I just can’t, on a daily basis, use a brush to apply my foundation. Normally, no matter what I do, I won’t get nearly the same flawless blend that I do with a sponge. So, when I see a YouTuber I trust, @glamlifeguru, rave about a new take on the beauty sponge, I take notice and order almost immediately. I have been testing the @thesupersponge out for a couple of weeks and below are my thoughts! What it claims: πŸ”˜ Coating infuses with the sponge, adhering to all of the micro-pores and enhancing the … Continue reading Sponge Sunday – The Super Sponge

Tutorial Tuesday – Long-Lasting Base Makeup Application

It has taken me a long time to get a makeup routine down that looks good from sun up to sunset. Now, this may change as my skin changes with the seasons, but, as of right now, these are the steps I do to ensure a flawless base for my longest days! A few things to note: πŸ”˜ I’m no video expert, so I apologize for the poor lighting and quality. πŸ”˜ I am using the Silicone Infused @thesupersponge (review coming Sunday) to blend out what was clearly too much foundation. I decided to keep that clip in the video … Continue reading Tutorial Tuesday – Long-Lasting Base Makeup Application
