Hello, old friends! A week or so ago, my husband and I were watching an SNL rerun that had Ariana Grande as the musical guest. I’m not going to comment on the performance (my husband almost had to leave the room), or how I feel about her in general, but her makeup game was SPOT ON. Take a look: Smokey copper eyes with a red lip? Sign me UP! This is my new fall or maybe even holiday event look…. Read more »

So, it’s Monday. And last I checked, hell hadn’t frozen over. But… I don’t want to talk about makeup. I know. I don’t think I’m ill. Though apparently ‘squitos in Sugar Land have West Nile. So there’s that. But I have been finding Makeup Monday a bit too labor intensive and demanding recently. It’s hard to do a post every Monday. I’ve been feeling blah about it. So, I’ve made a decision. I’m going to postpone Makeup Monday. It’ll still… Read more »

You know, I really don’t have any makeup topics in mind. I’m too tired to launch into a deep explanation about blush, or to go on another hate-filled rant about people who think cream contouring is an “everyday” look. So instead, let’s just go shopping. From the comfort of our own couches while we grip cups of coffee. Man, I love the internet. Y’all ready? 1) Butter London Brick Lane Collection, color Cor Blimey. That name. That perfect eggplant aubergine…. Read more »

Hello, Monday. (Said like, “Hello, Newman” in Seinfeld.) I don’t really even want to talk about makeup today. Well, that’s a lie. I always want to talk about makeup. But it’s so hot that I don’t want to wear makeup. Everything feels melty and nasty and your eyelashes droop. Late summer in Texas is no joke. So here are some summer makeup tips that will hopefully help to get us through to the beautiful, crisp fall. I can’t wait. Starbucks… Read more »

We meet again, Monday. But I shall choose to ignore you and go on my merry way. Now, I’m not a huge supporter of makeup trends– I think you should wear whatever you like and makes you feel pretty and self-expressive. However, I also do like to see what new trends or innovations/styles are becoming popular, in case I find something new or inspiring to me. So, here are ten trends I am really looking forward to rocking. 1) Bold… Read more »

Hello, Monday. We meet again. You shall not best us! … Hmmmhmmm. Sorry about that. I hope everyone had a good weekend. Mine was rather lovely, but over too soon. Of course. Or course. I’m here with Part 2 of my 2 part series entitled “What Makeup Brushes Do I Need.” You know, in case you didn’t read the title or something. Here is Part 1 if you missed it. Today, we’re concentrating on eye brushes and lip brush…es. Reallly,… Read more »

Hello, friends and not friends! AKA the world. Don’t ask. Just go with it. I’m tired and it’s Monday. I had a pretty nice weekend, though I was more than a little busy. I can’t believe it’s the 28th. Time is flying by. Rent is due on Friday, everyone. Anyway, if you’ve ever asked yourself or Google “What makeup brushes do I need?,” then I’m here to answer all your questions. Kind of. Not really. Today is Part 1, which focuses… Read more »

I’m not trying to make you jealous, but I’m not even at work right now. And I’m not even supposed to be. I’m on vacation! Winning! I have a full/lazy day planned of meal planning, grocery shopping, packing, baking, and otherwise just chillin’ and preppin’ for going out of town. So pumped. Last night we went shopping for some cheeses for our Cheese Feast night… have I mentioned how excited I am for this stinking trip?!???!?!? Sorry for excess punctuation. I’m… Read more »

Bonjour, Mes Amies! I hope you’re awake and happy this Monday morning. Or at least one of those two things. I can’t believe how fast the weekend flew by. Same song, different verse, am I right? But life goes on and so must we. One question I get asked fairly often is, “Should I buy expensive makeup.” And the answer is yes. See y’all later! Just kidding! Obviously for each type of makeup, there is a range of prices. I’m… Read more »

Some of you are rolling your eyes because you know how to clean your makeup brushes. Some of you are curious, as you didn’t know there was a proper technique. Some of you didn’t know that you were supposed to clean makeup brushes. Yes, my friends. You are. Makeup brushes hold product, bacteria, and germs. You need to “deep” clean them every month to every 6 weeks. Please, at least every 8 weeks. I know, I know, we’re all busy…. Read more »
