For the first time in about five years, I am starting out a new year without being a VIB Rouge Member. As a die-hard makeup junkie that is a bit hard for me to say, for the longest time, it was almost a point of pride, a status symbol if you will. As an ex … Continue Reading

Hey y’all! I was browsing around Target (dangerous territory and honestly just an awful idea) and I found myself in the beauty aisle. I picked up a few things but I want to talk about 2 in particular. Now I am a die hard Kat Von D Tattoo Liner girl. Winged liner and red lips … Continue Reading

In case you missed the memo I have a serious cactus obsession. I’ve got cactus salt and pepper shakers, cactus hand towels, cactus bed sheets and now I’ve got cactus nail art. I got a lot of questions last time I did my cactus nail art so I figured I would just show y’all how … Continue Reading

It is no secret that I do not sleep anywhere near as much as I should. Even though it’s summer and I don’t have any all-night paper writing sessions I still manage to find myself awake at 1 and 2 am. All those late nights wreak havoc on my skin, especially my undereye area. Couple … Continue Reading

Days are getting longer and shorts are getting shorter. Y’all I am about as white as OPI’s Alpine Snow and my struggles with self-tanning have been too real. We’re talking Oompa Loompa impersonation kinda real. Having had a few years of practice and plenty of trial and error, I am pretty confident in my current … Continue Reading

Well let it be known that the scent associated with 2016 is Armani Sí. I actually discovered this scent last fall but I was trying to … Continue Reading

I’ve been interested in giving the OPI Infinite Shine nail system a go for quite a while now but I’ve always been skeptical. Between riding horses and working as a bartender my nail polish rarely remains in tact for more that a couple of hours and to be completely dramatic, I’ve given up hope when … Continue Reading

With October a mere three days away (OMG!) I’ve been doing a lot of closet reorganization and sorting. That being said, I want to share with y’all my 13 essentials for fall. We’re talking sweaters, jackets, boots, vampy lips, musky scents, and the mattest of foundations. 1|2|3|4|5|6|7|8|9|10|11|12|13 How cute are these?! That oversized sweater comes in tons … Continue Reading

It’s crazy to believe that after 4 years of unwavering dedication to Tarte’s Amazonian Clay Foundation I have been won over by a new kid on the block. Urban Decay launched their new matte finish, long wearing “All Nighter Foundation” this past month and I am in love. Mixed with Becca’s Backlight Primer, this has … Continue Reading
