Ladies, skincare is one of the most important steps in any routine! If you don't take care of your skin, it really will lash out on you! Being a self-taught makeup artist, skincare is VERY important to me! It is, honestly, the most important part of my day! Over the years, I have experimented with many products to figure out what is best for my skin. After all, the base is the most important part of any foundation. I have tried an immense amount of facial cleansers, moisturizers, tools, lotions, and toners.
These products, I have found, work the best for me!
1. Circadia Micro-Exfoliating Honey Cleanser
The first, and most important part of my skincare routine is my facial cleanser! Recently, I have discovered one that is all natural and it tones and cleanses, AT THE SAME TIME! It took away any redness in two days, and has cleared my acne up in a few weeks! I use this two times a day with either my hands or a facial cleansing brush. It is a gentle exfoliate so it is not harmful to use two times day, which is one of the reasons that I love it! BONUS: It smells like honey!
2. Vanity Planet Spin Brush
This is the brush that I use to exfoliate/ clean my face. I love this brush because it has four attachments. One for daily cleansing ( this is the one that I use everyday with the cleanser listed above), another for exfoliating (I use this once a week with my Circadia cleanser), a body brush to use in the shower, and a pumice stone to exfoliate your feet in the shower! This brush is battery powered and spins with one push of a button! I have had this brush for almost two years and it has never died. It is a product that I always recommend investing in to anyone who asks me about my skincare! I have a coupon code listed below for 70% off! It is regularly $99 but it will be $30 once the code is applied! You can't pass this up, ladies!
p.s.: I am in no way affiliated with this company, I really just LOVE their products!
3. Deluvia Miracle Aloe Cream
I recently got hooked in this moisturizer. One of the big reasons I decided to try it is because it is all natural. It isn't harsh on your skin. It is not only a face moisturizer, but you can use this ALL over your body. The aloe in it also helps with sunburns and chapped lips! It is versatile, and honestly it works wonders! Living in West Texas damages my skin because of how dry it is. The moment I tried this moisturizer, it instantly started working! I give it my stamp of approval, FOR SURE! Apply this after you have washed your face!
These three products are my holy grail of skincare!
Remember, if you don't take care of your skin, it won't take care of you!
I have listed links to all of these products down below, as well as a promo code for the Vanity Planet brush!

Foundation is probably one of the most important steps in my makeup routine. It covers my very many and scars, as well as, any blemishes I might have that day. After much trial and error, I have found the two foundations that I LOVE. Now, keep in mind that I have dry skin, so these foundations are what work well for me. They do not make me oily throughout the day and they hide my blemishes very well. If you have oily skin, I would recommend going to your local Sephora to test out what foundations work well for you!
The first foundation is Too Faced Peach Perfect Comfort Matte Foundation. It is a medium to full coverage foundation. Meaning, you can put on a single layer for medium coverage and build from there depending on how much coverage you would like. If I am going for a more natural look, this is my go-to. The matte finish is absolutely amazing and doesn't flake on my dry skin! An added bonus is that it smells absolutely wonderful because of the peach and fig used in the product!
The second is, Kat Von D Lock It Foundation. It is full, and I mean FULL, coverage. However, one of the things I love most about this foundation is that it doesn't make you look like you are wearing too much makeup. The formula glides on the skin and has a beautiful, smooth matte finish as well. A little goes a long way with this foundation! I use a dime size amount, if that, each time that I use it! This is what I reach for in a date night look or if I am wanting full-glam that day.
The BEST thing about BOTH of these foundations, is that they are VEGAN! Meaning, no animals are harmed in the making or testing of these products!
So whether it’s just a casual look or a full-glam night out, these products are a must! Links to find these products are down below!

I recently purchased my very first Morphe palette. Now, I have NEVER owned anything from Morphe in my life. So, I figured I would do my first review for you all on this GORGEOUS palette.
I wasn't sure that all of the hype over Morphe was true. After all, a lot of people are "paid" partners. Meaning: they get money for every purchase made using their discount code. However, after playing with this palette, I can honestly say that Morphe IS worth the money. The reason I decided to try this product was, truthfully, because I loved that it has so many options with colors. I could do a natural look, a smokey look, a date night look, or I could even use some of the shades as contour! I am all about a product having many uses, so I figured, "hey, what's the worst that could happen?", right?
I am elated that I made the decision to make this purchase. I have used this eyeshadow palette three times already and I have not been disappointed yet! These shadows are SO pigmented, and the formula is amazing! They glide on the skin and they blend so well. I was shook when I first dipped into this palette. I rate it a 10 out of 10!!!
If you are looking for versatile eyeshadow palette, I definitely recommend this one! You won't be disappointed!

I love easy, fast makeup looks and this is, by far, one of my absolute favorites! It took me 20 minutes to create this look and I used mostly drugstore products! It is an affordable, everyday makeup look for any woman on a budget. Below are the products (in order) that I used!
1. Revlon Pore Reducing Primer
Use this all over your face, especially in the areas where your pores are the largest!
2. Infallible Pro-Glow from L'oreal Liquid Foundation
I use a damp beauty blender to blend this out all over my face and down my neck.
3. Instant Age Rewind Concealer
This concealer is my favorite drugstore brand! Use this under your eyes for bags, on your nose, and on your forehead and chin to highlight those areas.
4. Airspun Setting Powder
Set your face to prevent oily, flaky foundation or concealer. I use the translucent powder.
5. Milani Brow Pencil + Maybelline Brow Drama Brow Gel
Apart from Anastasia Beverly Hills, these are my go-to products. They last all day and are easy to apply!
6. Carli Bybel Deluxe Palette + Meech and Mia Copper Eyeshadow Pot
I use this palette for almost every eye look. The colors are perfect for my eyes!
7. Lash Paradise Mascara L'oreal
This is an affordable alternative to Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara.
8. BH Cosmetics Contour Palette
I use a powder contour instead of cream. It isn't as dramatic, and it blends well on my skin type.
9. Carli Bybel Deluxe Palette Highlighter
I used the same eyeshadow palette for my highlight. These highlighters are to die for! My highlight isn't finished unless it's blinding, and this palette does the trick! The highlighters also double as an eyeshadow as well! It is so versatile, which is why it is currently my favorite palette to use!
10. Finding Ferdinand in the shade Rose Gold
I actually received a travel size in my IPSY bag of this lipstick and all I can say is, OBSESSED!
