A few months ago (quite a few months ago at this point, lol), I was blessed to be able to go on vacation! Yay! My husband and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary with a trip to Cancun, Mexico with another couple (who we love and look up to)! If you have been following my Youtube channel, you may have seen some of the outfits that I wore while there, but here, I wanted to show you what makeup I took with me. Not to mention, the absolutely gorgeous toiletry case that accompanied me!Continue reading “What’s In My Vacay Makeup Bag”
Physician’s Formula recently added a new foundation to their lineup, The Healthy Foundation. I was excited to try this out because I saw a few reviews from women of color. If you know anything about Physician’s Formula, then I’m sure you know that all of their complexion products are usually on the paler side. As far as I know, this is the first foundation that they have come out with that would fit my skin tone or darker. I tried this out in the shade DN3 (dark neutral 3) because that seemed to be the closest to my skin tone when I saw it in store. I decided to film my first few days of wearing this, so make sure to check out the video below. I also wanted to give you the basic pros & cons of this foundation here on the blog just in case you don’t have time to watch the video.
If you are in tune at all with the online beauty community, then I’m sure that you have seen a million blog posts, Instagram posts, and YouTube videos about the new Fenty Beauty line by Rihanna. Hopefully you’re not too sick of them yet, because I have a video to add to the mix. Check it out below!

NARS has been one of my favorite brands for awhile now, so when I saw that they were coming out with new liquid lipsticks (finally!), I had to try them! The NARS Powermatte Lip Pigments launched a little over a month ago with 20 shades ranging from nudes to black! There were so many colors that I wanted to try, but I narrowed it down to 5. If you want to know what I thought of them, keep reading!
Why do foundations now have to have a name with 10 words in it??? The new Estee Lauder Double Wear Nude Water Fresh Foundation is definitely no exception! I picked this up in the shade 5W1 Bronze to test out. As a new addition to the Double Wear line, it is supposed to give a lightweight but long lasting coverage. If you have been following my blog for awhile, you will know that this sounds right up my alley! I tested this out for you in the video below, so make sure to watch that. If you are short on time and want to quickly know what I thought of the foundation, check out my pros and cons below.
Foundation is one of my number 1 makeup loves! I love trying different ones and because of that, I have found quite a few that I’m fond of. Sometimes it can be a little tricky to figure out what foundation will hold up in the hot weather and manage to still feel good on the skin. Check out my top foundation picks for the summer! For reference, my skin is pretty normal these days with most of my oil being in my t-zone.
So about 2 weeks ago, I decided to do a first impression video for the new Becca Aqua Luminous Foundation.

Below that I’ll give you a rundown of the pros and cons of this foundation!
