Review: 1 Month Using Younique Touch Stick Foundation

image of Younique Stick FoundationIt’s been about a month since I’ve had Younique’s brand new stick foundation and it’s time to share all the things I love about it… because you need to have this product in your hands. With just a few swipes of this magic stick foundation, your face is literally transformed. It hides the imperfections, including any acne, lone pimple, rosacea, uneven skin tone, and redness. You have it and Younique’s stick foundation will help hide, cover, and enhance.

Younique’s stick foundation is a full coverage foundation. The coverage that you get from using this product will seriously knock your socks off (if people still even say that!). You will have a dewy finish if you use [Read more…]

When To Get Your Eyebrows Wet After Microblading

image of brows after microbladingIt’s Day 8 after my microblading touch up appointment and the big question popped into my head: Can I shower (translation: Can I get my brows wet yet)? I did what any other girl that was given contradictory after care instructions and took my question to Google. I learned that if you are using the dry healing process after microblading, your best bet is to not get your brows wet for 10-14 days.

Hmm, this left me in quite a predicament being that I needed to shampoo my hair. Living off of dry shampoo for so long is making me feel very dirty… not to mention that I bought the tint dry shampoo this time around and every single time my hand goes on my head I’m left with brown finger tips. It’s really [Read more…]

My Microblading Touch Up Appointment & What I Wish I’d Done

image of microblading touch up numbingAfter your initial microblading appointment, once your brows have healed, you will need to return to the salon to have your microblading touch up appointment. This is typically 4-6 weeks after your first microblading session. A touch up appointment is needed for a variety of reasons. It is unknown how your skin will take the pigment, there will be fading, and there could be some unevenness that needs to be corrected. The microblading touch up appointment is done the same way as the first appointment and takes about the same amount of time.

Your microblading artist will look at how well your brows took the pigment, notice where more pigment needs to be, and will draw the [Read more…]

Microblading: All the Details & What You Need to Know

image of microblading day by day healingMicroblading has been around for some time, but it’s only been in the recent years that it’s become super trendy. Eyebrow-envy can be found by scrolling on Instagram and seeing all of the makeup posts with perfectly manicured brows. You know the ones I’m talking about… They leave you in complete awe, wondering why you don’t have the skills to do your brows like that.  (Or is that just me?)

I first learned about microblading a few years ago and decided almost instantly that I wanted amazing brows too. While it took me a long time to muster up the courage to make an appointment, I did it on [Read more…]

Makeup Look of the Day 💟

image of Younique makeup look of the dayFall is my favorite time of the year. I love the leaves changing & the air cooling. I love pumpkin everything and bundling up with sweaters & cute jackets. It’s such a wonderful time of the year, but living in Houston leaves much to be desired when it comes to Fall. Houston doesn’t really do Fall. The cooler temperatures coming in may be around 85 degrees and [Read more…]

Younique’s Prestige Program: Never Run Out of Mascara Again!

image of younique epic mascaraMascara: The one makeup product we can’t live without!

Raise your hand if you’ve ever put on your makeup, then reached for your mascara tube, only to find it to be dried out and yucky.  What about the second you’ve swiped your mascara wand on your lashes only to see that the *WOW* factor isn’t very wow because you literally had to scrape the sides of the mascara tube with the wand?  Yep, both have happened to me too many times to count and each time I’m left to wonder why I don’t have a brand new mascara waiting for me stashed with my other makeup.

Ahhh, you know what I’m talking about with a brand new mascara! The way it makes your lashes stand out because of [Read more…]

YOUNIQUE ROYALTY™ Brightening Mask Review: Does it work?

image of brightening mask by youniqueI’m a sucker for face masks of all kinds: Detoxifying charcoal, oil control, exfoliating, brightening, sheet, and more. There’s just something really nice about pampering your skin with a luxurious mask and feeling super refreshed after. Fancy even. There’s nothing like how you feel after taking off a mask.

Truth be told I’ve never used a gold mask that I had to peel off before and could not wait to get my hands on [Read more…]

Adios pimples: My Younique skincare regimen that has worked wonders!

image of clear skin Remember back in September how I posted about how awesome Younique’s liquid foundation is, but that it was because my skin decided to break out with bumps all over and I needed some additional coverage? Well, I am so excited to provide an update about that little problem that is no more!

It seems like the older we get, the more we have to “work” at our skin. I remember how good I had it back in high school. One of my [Read more…]

Younique’s Self-Tanning Spray For Face Review: Does It Really Work?

Image of the Younique tanning spray on my faceI’ll be the first to admit that I have never used self-tanner on my face. I am a champ when it comes to applying it on my body so that I have a great looking tan, but applying it on my face is a completely different story. Probably because I have super sensitive skin and then there’s always that possibility of ending up orange or streaky and having to go out in public that way. Like seriously, what do you do then?!

One of Younique’s brand new Spring products is self-tanning spray. While intrigued by a self-tanner that is a spray, it also made me a bit nervous. When I say I’m a champ with self-tanner, I’m talking about self-tanning lotion or [Read more…]

How To Get Perfect Brows (and the secret you may not know)

image of me and my eyebrowsBrows on fleek. Those words have never been said to me before.  Until today, that is. That’s right; I feel like I’ve finally had my brow moment and my day (read: year) has been made!

Who else has some sparse looking, wavy eyebrows? Oh.  Just me? Cool.  Well, let me tell you that having these unruly brows has been tough on me when it comes to wanting to have beautifully defined brows.  And, for the longest time, I just thought that I’d have to live with these brows because it seemed like there was nothing that could be done to help out the situation. Dramatic, I know, but so true.

I’ve been told by many of my customers that [Read more…]

Self-Tanning Do’s and Don’ts

image of tips for self-tanning blog postI once saw a picture that said, “If you can’t tone it, tan it!” Amen to that! There’s just something about that glowing bronzed look that lots of people can’t get enough of.  You feel skinnier when you are tan.  You feel more confident and pretty. You get to wear less makeup because there’s less to hide with tan skin.  It’s an overall great mood booster, well for me anyways!

I like to think of myself as a self-tanning expert.  (Is that even a thing? Ha!)  I had a mole/cancer scare years ago (thank you, tanning beds) and am more careful about being in the sun ever since.  I’ve tried lots of self-tanners through the years, have had streaky legs because I didn’t know what I was doing, and have since learned many [Read more…]
