Hello Beauty




I had planned to do a video today but I only had requests for hair curling tutorials and I have a couple of videos already that can be found here.

Each morning I use the same make-up routine, but there are a few crucial steps & products that have proven their worth. First is the Benefit ‘High Brow’ pencil which serves as a highlighter for below and/or above your eyebrows. Each morning, I line under my brow before I fill them in, which gives my brows a more arched, higher appearance. I also use it for under my eyes! Secondly, eye liner is an essential for opening my eyes, giving them a fuller shape, and making them appear brighter. The Revlon Color Stay Liquid Eye Liner is my go-to for my upper lash line, but I also swear by the MAC Eye Pencil 'Kohl' for my lower lash line. And finally, I’m all about giving the illusion that I have sculpted cheek & jaw bones. For years and years, I’ve used the MAC's 'Golden Refined' as my main bronzer (I have tried others and always go back.) I sweep bronzer around my hairline, my chin, & underneath my cheek bones using this brush.

Of course, lipstick & mascara are essentials as well, but I figured that was a given. Right now I am really loving the NYX lipliners - they are $3.50 a piece and are an all-day wear! :)

Thank you for stopping by...xo!


  1. HEY! I am an AR girl! I just found your blog last night! LOVE your style! I am going to attempt to roll my hair like yours! Have a great day!

  2. I've really been into perfecting my eyebrows lately! I need to try this out!

  3. just started filling in my eyebrows, and i'm now obsessed with it! I feel like I can get away with wearing less eye makeup if my brows are filled in.


  4. I recently discovered filling in my eyebrows, i'm Indian so my eyebrows are already pretty dark, but it really gives another look to your face. It's definitely my secret weapon :)
