Fall Makeup Favourites.

Hello everyone! Happy Friday!


Truth be told, I am sitting on my couch writing this while it pours with rain outside. Hot coffee in my hand it feels only suitable that I am writing about my Fall Makeup Favorites.


I recently bought the NARS Extreme Effects shadow and have fallen in love with it very quickly. It’s the perfect blend of Fall colors. I love buying from Hudsons Bay because you always receive a bunch of freebies with your order, making it that much more exciting. This time around I got a free eyeshadow primer from NARS and a whole goodie bag from Clinique!

The palette itself is just stunning. NARS is hands down one of my favorite high-end brands. The quality of the shadows are pigmented, yet apply buttery soft.


Along with my NARS eyeshadow, I’ve been obsessed with the NYX Soft matte lip creams. My go-to shades right now are Copenhagen and Stockholm. I had to re-stock these shades because I ran out of my selection from last year. I know this might be different from other opinions, but I really like how light they feel on the lips after they dry. I dont like how some liquid lipsticks feel thick and chalky. These are an absolute dream to wear.

Those colours though! Such a fall aesthetic 😍

Also I’ve been looking at Tik Tok lately… Should I use it? Am I missing out if I don’t?

I feel like it’s going to be something where I don’t like it at first, and then suddenly I’ve fallen deeply into it and totally obsessed. I am still not entirely sure how to use it.

Anyway, TGIF everyone! What are your plans this weekend?

I’m going to carve pumpkins and drink a bit of wine with my friends. 🎃 🥂

Welcoming Autumn

Hello everyone!

I feel like I’m welcoming Autumn with an especially warm hug this year. It’s as though I am finally able to breath deep and catch a glimpse of a more relaxed pace. Does anyone else feel this way?

Besides being relaxed, I am so excited for all the fun Autumn activities we are still able to enjoy during these ever changing times.

Things I am looking forward to this Fall are: enjoying everything in Pumpkin Spice Flavour 😋 Staying in watching movies on stormy nights. And more mushroom picking adventures with Alex and our pup!

What are your favourite Fall traditions? 🎃

June Ipsy Bag!

Hello everyone!

How are you all doing on this lovely day?

With the whole pandemic happening I put a pause on any unnecessary spending for about 3 months. I did this mostly to save just in case anything happened, but I’m not even sure how much I really saved because my makeup budget turned into a snack budget real fast 😂

When I saw that little pink parcel in the mail I was over the moon. What’s that song again?

🎶 Brown paper packages tied up with strings, these are a few of my favourite things. 🎶 … but pink instead of brown… you get the picture lol

I did something I never usually do and had a sneak peak of my bag when Ipsy released the lpreviews. I was so happy with what I saw it definitely fuelled my anticipation.

The bag they came out with this month is so cute! I love the bright yellow colour as it immediately makes me think of summer. And the pattern is just so fun! I’ll definitely be using this to pack all my little Knick Knacks in.

I’ll start with what I was looking forward to the most, and that was the perfume Juliette Has a Gun, in the scent Vanilla Vibes.

Ipsy has never sent me a perfume that I didn’t love. They’re always such a good size sample too, it tends to last me a really long time!

The funny part is that I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect summer scent. Something light and fresh that captures the essence of summer. Then Ipsy sent me this, and I was immediately in love. It was literally the exact scent I’ve been looking for. Usually perfume is just plain overpowering for me but this is honestly just the right combination. It also just smells really good on me, like it goes well with my body chemistry… does that make sense? It’s a thing right? 😂

Anyway I 100% plan on buying a full sized bottle once I’ve gone through the sample. And that is really saying something! They always get the perfume right with me.

Honestly if you’re ever unhappy with your Ipsy bag it’s a good idea to re-do the quiz because

a) It’s just a fun quiz to take in general and

b) It will totally change your bag to what you actually want and are going to get use out of.

Moving on!

The other product I was most excited for was the #inmo Cosmetics Velveteen Dream Shadow in the shade Kween Bee. Starting with the packaging I was obsessed. The little illustration on the front made me think of a Sailor Moon character.

For the actual shadow, I am always drawn to gold shimmers, they look amazing on any eye colour and skin tone. Unlike other shimmery shadows, this one actually applies amazing and the brush picks it up perfectly. Hardly any fallout and true to colour. Nothing more I could want! It’ll be at the top of my giant collection of gold eyeshadows!

I was very happy to receive the Youth To The People moisturizing cream as I have never tried the brand before. Supposedly this cream is filled with a whole list of superfoods including kale. 🤔 It can be used all over your face, or as a spot treatment for under your eyes. It’s a whipped consistency so it feels light on your skin but leaves you hydrated. I’m using it mostly for my under eyes and since it’s not very heavy, nor is it scented, it feels very refreshing.

Next this in my bag was the lipstick from Real Her cosmetics.

Honestly something about miniature lipstick just makes me so happy. Most people would probably say this shade is nothing to write home about, but to me it is the exact colour that matches my natural lip perfectly. It enhances the natural colour of my lips beautifully 👄 It’s not the longest lasting formula but it feels very comfortable on the lips, as it’s not drying or too smudgy.

Lastly was the Kohl eyeliner by Sugar. I’ll start by saying I’ve never found an eyeliner pencil that has worked for me outside of Makeup Forever or Mac. Unless it’s luxury quality it tends to melt down my eyes immediately… and that’s definitely what happened here. I was looking like a member from Kiss at the end of the day and it was not working on me 😂 I will be sanitizing and putting this is my kit so it won’t be a total loss!

Well I really loved this Ipsy bag and I’m already excited for next months bag 🤩

Does anyone else get Ipsy? I want to know how you’re getting on with your June bag ?

Travel Tips You May Not Know…

Hello everyone!

Over the last 6 months, I’ve become a bit of a master traveller in the short term category. I guess a master commuter is a better term? Traveller sounds more catchy haha!

I wanted to share some tips and tricks I’ve learned while commuting every week the last 6 months. It feels crazy to say I’ve been in school for 6 months which means I’m halfway through my course! 😮

We are just starting makeup for Film and Television and it’s been an absolute blast so far. We learned how to stipple on beards and I realized how much I do look like my brother. 😂

On to my first tip, and for me it’s a huge one because I CANNOT travel without music or I will go insane.

1) Set a reminder/alarm on your phone or device to charge your iPod/iPhone and pack your headphones ahead of time. Usually, if I know I’m going to be running out the door in a hurry I will do this just in case. I always set it for a good amount of time before I leave, usually in the morning or early noon. There’s nothing worse than getting out the door with no headphones or having 2% battery on your phone. (Also if you were super adamant on not forgetting your headphones, have a spare pair that never leaves your purse) I also charge my portable battery at the same time as my phone as a backup. I just have a cheap Duracell one but it works in a pinch!

2) Bring water and Snacks.  This is another thing to pack ahead of time. Every time I’ve thought ‘No it’s too heavy I’m not bringing snacks’, I’ve regretted it so fast because there I am, stomach rumbling on the bus or ferry. My favourite quick snacks are nuts, granola bars, and some chocolate. Basically, things that won’t squish easy and provide quick energy.

3) Plan ahead the best spot for your bus/train fare. I travel to Vancouver every week as some of you may know and the transit system is pretty awesome. (I know some will say different but for a small town gal like me it’s really good) We use Compass Cards, and I hate that last minute feeling of racing to the bus and racing to find my card.

4) Go for the stylish AND comfortable travel bag. I used to make rather inconvenient travel bag choices until I invested in my dream backpack. Its equal parts comfortable to wear has SO many pockets and is super fashionable. I got mine from Forever 21 (no shock there hehe) and its been all over B.C and to L.A so it’s definitely held up!

5) Invest in some handy Apps… It doesn’t take any money at all to have super handy apps on your phone. The #1 app I use is the Bus Tracker app. I think every city probably has its own version. I hate running to the bus stop only to figure out I missed it and the next one is 15 mins away. Basically, this app tells you which buses go to that stop and exactly when the bus will be there and even when the next 3 will arrive.

6) Last but not least… Investing in a couple gadgets can go a long way. For me my favourite gadget is my phone clip. I hate holding my phone for fear that someone could snatch it easy, but if it’s away I can’t, well, use it. That’s when I realized Otterbox gave me a phone clip with my case. I’ve been using it ever since and it’s changed my transit routine. I clip it to my waistline and I can have my hands free and tuck my shirt over to hide it if I need to. It makes listening to music while I walk so much more enjoyable! The other is a simple lanyard or extendable strap for your transit card (my friend from school inspired this one ☝️) Another amazing way to keep your hands free and your transit card safe and secure.

I hope this tips have been handy for you! I felt the need to share my knowledge 😂

The Perfect No Makeup, Makeup Look ft. MAC and NYX Cosmetics

I wanted to share my personal , perfect no makeup makeup look today. I really love it because it doesn’t use a billion products but just enough to cover all your bases.

I wanted to use beautiful neutral colours and the first thing that came to mind was my quad from MAC that contains Taupe, Espresso and a white and black (which names I’ve forgotten 😂)

The stars of the look are definitely my Rimmel Match Perfection (as always) and my favourite affordable powder from NYX the Stay Matte Powder Foundation. Besides my primer this is the base especially on my good skin days it’s all I like to use.

The biggest reason I love my MAC quad is the multi use I get out of it. The taupe shade is all I wear in my brows (with a tad espresso mixed in) and then I can make a natural eye look, and even more dramatic looks like a smokey eye.

Eyes: MAC Espresso and Taupe

Brows: MAC Taupe

Lips: MAC lipstick in Myth

Face: Rimmel Match Perfection and NYX Stay Matte But Not Flat Powder Foundation

Lashes: Rimmel Total Tease Mascara

Do you have any favourite no makeup, makeup products??

May Favourites 🌵

Hello everyone!

It feels like I just did a favourites post! I have no idea where time has gone. 😱

April and May have gone by in a blink and I’m not sure how I feel about that haha! Looking back they were 2 of the best months I’ve had in a long time and things just keep getting better! I’ve been cleansed of many nuisances and reconnected with myself and what makes me truly happy. I got to put my priorities first for the first time in a long time, and I feel like myself again.

Life update over haha! Onto this May’s favourites! This month is heavy on skincare and home decor.

My first favourite has been my saving grace at school and at home for removing makeup. It is the Garnier Micellar Water in the normal to sensitive formula.

At school, we are putting on makeup and taking it off all the time. Sometimes 2 or 3 times a day! We have to do it quickly but thoroughly, and that can be a tough combination to find in a skin cleanser.

This is so gentle yet removes all the makeup and dirt from my skin in one soft sweep. I feel polished and clean after but not dried out.

Next will be no shock at all and it is The Ordinary skin care line, specifically Buffet, the Caffeine Solution, and my newest love the 100% Plant-Derived Squalane hydrating oil.

I have already raved about Buffet and the Caffeine Solution in this blog post HERE 

The 100% Plant Derived Squalane Oil has really changed my skincare in ways I never thought it could. I have always had dry-ish skin and thought that it was normal. Never getting better, but never getting worse. One day our teacher was raving about how amazing the Squalane oil was and how it was a perfect primer to put on before makeup. I couldn’t help but be in awe at the effects it had on our skin and bought it the first chance I had. I’ve been using it every night and its provided SUCH relief to my skin! I wish I knew about it sooner. It is a thin oil that you smooth on your skin after moisturizing (I use it just before bed). I have seen such a difference I feel like it has rekindled my love of wearing makeup because my skin looks so amazing and healthy. This is definitely my #1 favourite for May and will probably continue on into June 😛

My next two favourites are homeware items and will be no surprise to you if you follow me on Instagram or here. They are the Coconut Leaves candle from Bath and BodyWorks, and my cute Cactus Mason Jar cup that I picked up from the dollar store. I love the fresh tropical scent of the Coconut Leaves candle, I never get tired of it. Along with that, my Cactus Mason Jar cup is just the perfect vessel for a mojito cocktail or mocktail.

Next, I have totally gotten back into making my own face masks! It’s so satisfying to create your own customized face mask and to know all the ingredients are organic and ethically sourced. This mask specifically is made with Spirulina Algae.🌿

May’s favourites were definitely very skincare heavy but it has been paying off! I feel like a brand new person!

Hope you had a fabulous month of May! Did any of my favourites make it on your list too? 😛

Makeup for a Hot Summer Day… ☀️ How to Make It Last 💄✌️

I’ve been trying to think of a much shorter, more intriguing title than this but I’m coming up blank for now 😅

We’ve had our first heat wave in Vancouver, and I’m trying not to complain about it since we just survived our usual 7 months of winter.

My favourite part of summer is that everything seems so much more special. Any night of the week becomes a good night to grab a gelato on the pier, and the only reason is because of the beautiful weather. We all celebrate it!

Well… most of us. The select few of us makeup lovers may see it as a very hot, melty time not to be celebrated. I personally love getting dolled up to go out but the heat admittedly can get in the way.

So I thought I’d share my favourite ‘heatproof’ makeup and tips with you today! This is what I’ve been wearing the last week and a half and it’s perfect to wear casually or spruce it up a bit for an evening out. 🥂 (I don’t know why I use this emoji so much because I never drink haha, it just looks like a cute/fun emoji 😝)

I love dewy foundations and my two favourites to use are the Nars Sheer Glow and the Clinique Moisture Surge (SPF 15). I do think it is important to find a foundation with a good SPF, and to find a formula that works for you. A lot of the time when Sunscreen is added to foundation it tends to change it. I found the Clinique to be my personal perfect fit. Sometimes it just takes a bit of searching! Keeping our skin protected from the sun is so important! Clinique has a light to medium coverage and Nars has medium to full coverage being very buildable.

When it comes to Summer, I find sheer coverage to be more comfortable on the skin. I’m not looking for major coverage because I find that my skin becomes much more healthy in the warm weather. Do you guys have that happen too?

Like I said the key is to keep it light. To me, there is such a thing as too much of a good thing. The more you put on, means more product to potentially cake up. (I’m not saying that full face coverage is bad, this is just what works for me personally :p)

Only conceal areas that really need it, and set everything with a light loose setting powder right away. To me having a loose setting powder is the most important tip. Compact powders tend to be full of fillers (that’s how they stick together in the pan) and that filler gunk is what makes makeup look cakey. My favourite cheapy loose powder is the e.l.f High Definition Undereye setting powder, but I use it all over my face too. It’s mostly matte, but there’s a tiny bit of glitter they snuck in there that is barely noticeable.

I like my concealer to also act as a highlighter, hence why I adore the Match Perfection Concealer from Rimmel. It has a light consistency but is very pigmented, which makes it look so flawless under the eye while still being so thin. I don’t know what they do with the formula but I keep re-buying it!

Along with an undereye highlight, I take this opportunity to use a highlight all over my face (it almost acts as an extra setting powder). For this, I love the e.l.f baked highlighters. They aren’t too intense so you can apply them all over and they look spectacular.

For the bronzer/contour, a simple matte bronzer does the trick. I like to use a matte bronzer for a look like this so it doesn’t look too ‘busy’ on the face. My favourite right now is from Ciaté and its the Bamboo Bronzer.

For hot days I avoid any undereye liner or anything that might smudge at the *literal* blink of an eye.

It might sound crazy, but all I wear on my eyes is either a little bit of the same bronzer I am wearing or a bit of the highlight. It looks natural and pleasing to the eye, especially for a natural look like this. I won’t blab on about the mascara, it’s just my favourite mascara. 😛

Now the lips are a different story. In fact, they’re the total opposite. I keep them matte, budge-proof and smudge proof. There’s nothing worse than trying to sip on your favourite iced delicacy and having to put your mouth on that weird ring of lipstick that we get on the straw. Nope, not today. I want that cupids bow staying where it needs to be and not melting off.

It’s a no-brainer that the Colourpop liquid lipsticks are my go-to lipstick for these days. They don’t budge (unlike their disappearing label haha) and they aren’t heavily drying on the lips. My fave right now is Bumble. 💋

My last items are not related to makeup at all but help with the scorching heat. I keep a small perfume rollerball in my purse just for extra freshening up. I always like to have a perfume on hand just in case, especially now that the busses are getting hotter. Right now my favourite has been Lovely by Sarah Jessica Parker. I think the reason I love it so much is because I wore it to Los Angeles last summer and now it always reminds me of that trip!

Lastly, a cool pair of shades are always the finishing touch. Believe it or not, these came from the dollar store and I’m not afraid to admit it!

The weather keeps getting nicer, and I keep getting happier!

January Favourites

I’m going to be honest, I was so excited to write a January favourites post it was one of the only sure-fire posts I knew I was going to write. I was inspired and ready to write. Then February came along and somehow my brain just forgot about it like ‘nope nothing to see here’. So, this is my long-winded apology for not having a favourites post for a *very* long time.

 I was just using so many of the same things that it felt repetitive. I was in a slump. Mostly why there was/is a lack of new product reviews is just because I’m saving every penny I can for school! But that doesn’t mean I haven’t tried anything at all 😛 I’m out of the slump!

Oh boy, where do I start… The makeup of course! So many new favourites, some I have already spoken about in short reviews so I’ll keep them to the point.

  1. ColourPop Eyeshadow. I treated myself to a little ColourPop haul in early December as I had never tried that brand before. I didn’t really do a haul post since it was such a tiny order and many other bloggers had such wonderful extravagant posts…I just felt that mine might be a bit underwhelming in comparison 😂 However I’m happy to say I’ve tried them and I’m just as impressed as I’d hoped I’d be 😄 These are the 3 Super Shock shadows I was most excited to try! They are in the shades: Fluffy, Sequin and Catnap. After playing with them and getting used to the new consistency I have started sneaking them into any makeup look I can! At first, it threw me off, but I realized some shadows I ordered were glitters (lots of glitters but not as much pigment) and others more pigment and fewer shimmer chunks.

2. Sheet face masks. This might be self-explanatory but look how freaking cute these are! I love a face mask that keeps a mess to a minimal but still delivers results. Mostly it’s just the novelty of putting one on, maybe having a bath, relaxing and then peeling it off to *hopefully* expose softer more vibrant skin.

3. Lush hair masks. Specifically speaking about the hot oil hair treatments that come on a stick. Not only do they serve up amazing nutrition and conditioning for your locks, but they are a great bang for your buck. Just store in an old clean lush pot and use a small amount of hot water to reactivate after storing. I get about 3 – 4 uses out of each, which I consider being an amazing deal. The one I have been loving is called ‘Damaged’ and it is a powerhouse for repairing and hydrating any kind of hair.

4. Total Tease Mascara by Rimmel. I think I’ve raved about this before but this Mascara holds strong as my absolute favourite (next to the Clinique Mascara) and is still going strong. I feel a bit bold saying I do in fact love the synthetic brush and just how short and sturdy the bristles are. It works so well with my eyelashes, grabbing every one! The formula of it is light but you can layer it up for a full look. My absolute favourite part though is that it is NOT waterproof, but will stay on all day with no fallout or anything. Then at night, it washes off so easy with no missing eyelashes.

5. NYX Eyebrow Gel. I was feeling adventurous after my last brow product ran out and saw all the products on the NYX stand calling out my name. I had tried brow pencils, powders and pomade, but never a gel. I have very full brows and I knew I need something pigmented but pliable to work and that’s exactly what delivered. Now the term ‘gel’ threw me off since it’s more of a liquid/soft pomade in my opinion, but I was relieved by the consistency. The colour matches my brows and it stays on strong all day. My only woe is how fast it dries. With that being the only annoyance, it also means that it never smears or budges.

6. Loreal Colorista Hair colour. I recently had an itch to dye my hair but didn’t want to use any harmful chemicals (which is typically what throws me off of any hair dying) I remembered that I had one bottle of the L’Oréal Colorista still tucked away in my bathroom. I am so impressed by how well it not only dyes my hair but how soft and healthy my hair feels after. The other best part is that it will wash out after 4-8 washes, making it the perfect dye if you don’t want to commit to a colour permanently. The only downside is that it strictly only works on blond or highlighted hair. Anything darker than dirty blonde it will not absorb into the hair at all. On the upside, they sell absolutely everything you would need to lighten your hair and then dye it, and even wash it out if you don’t like the colour!

7. American Eagle Perfume: Live Your Life. Something about this perfume is just perfect to me. I bought it a couple of years ago on holiday, and it is a chameleon for every season, matching perfectly for cold or hot seasons. The smell is almost indescribable to me, but I can say its a sweet yet rich smell. I’m hoping to high heavens that it isn’t discontinued or anything because I use it about 3-4 times a day to freshen up and I will need a refill soon! Not only does the smell remind me of that holiday, but I can wear it no matter what season it is! I classify this as more of a body mist because of the light scent, which is another reason I love it so dearly. I don’t like too strong of scents, but I still want it to last me. Also, what can I say? I love a good perfume with an inspirational quote on the bottle 😛

Thanks for stopping by! ❤️

Has February flown by just as fast for you as it has for me?

A $4 Dupe for a Becca Highlighter?

Hello everyone,

And yes the title is true, is there possibly a super cheap accessible dupe for a Becca highlighter? Keep on reading to find out! (I feel like I’m talking like a T.V announcer and just rolled with it haha)

I was perusing the drugstore makeup aisle as I do often after work and I came across the e.l.f stand. If anyone is new to e.l.f, the brand stands for eyes, lips, face and is an extremely affordable makeup brand. I’ve always had a wonderful experience with their products and applaud them for being cruelty-free as well. Anyhoo, I noticed that a new section of highlighters have been stocked and noticed right away that one of the shades looked very similar to my favourite Becca Highlighter/Eyeshadow in Moonstone. I laughed because the name of the E.l.f product was almost completely the same as Rey had named it Moonlight Pearls. Coincidence?

when I first swatched it I was gutted. Really no colour pay off, but I was determined to somehow make it work. This couldn’t be it! I have never been disappointed (especially to this degree) by an E.l.f product before. I will admit I had a bit of a bias rooting for the E.l.f brand but I didn’t let it affect my final verdict. I mean who wouldn’t want to discover an amazing and cheap highlighter, am I right?

I did some reading and it was suggested to scrape off the top layer to expose to the ‘good stuff’.  I did exactly that with an eyebrow brush, very gently scraping off the top layer. Then I crossed my fingers and swatched again.

The swatch on top is E.l.f, and the bottom is Becca.

Finally some luck!

First thing I noticed was they are in fact very similar colours. Up close the Becca Highlighter has much more Gold in it, and the E.l.f highlighter is a bit cooler-toned. None-the-less I am very surprised.

Just being applied to dry skin with no product or primer I was fairly impressed.

But the true test of a product to me is how it applies to the full face with foundation and proper priming. Well, I can tell you the surprises just keep coming.

Dare I say, the E.l.f highlighter was just as pigmented and striking as the Becca highlighter. when I applied it over my foundation I could not believe my eyes.

I used two different freshly cleaned brushed to apply both highlighters and the exact same amount of product.

So what is my verdict?

Very surprised to say the least. If you’re looking for a good dupe, or are just starting your makeup kit, I highly recommend this highlighter.

Now while I have been raving about the E.l.f product I will say there is a huge difference in the formula. This is only a dupe for the colour as the e.l.f product is not as soft or buttery as the Becca one is. And there definitely is fallout from the E.l.f products when you dip your brush in there is a prominent cloud.

Overall I’m really happy with this discovery. I did look online and I do realize I’m not the first person to catch on to this. I’m super happy that other people are discovering the E.l.f brand though!

Thanks for reading as always! Please let me know what your opinion on E.l.f is? Love it? Hate it? I feel like I’ve said E.l.f a thousand times in this blog post haha!

My Top Skin Care Tips

Hello everyone! Today I have another skin care post to share with you.

I feel like my journey into the world of skin care has been a ride since I was a teen all the way to adulthood. A lot of learning and habit changing has happened so I thought I would share with you the tips that I live by for maintaining healthy skin 🙂 I am in no way a ‘professional skin care guru-type’, but these are just the little tricks I’ve learned and live by.

❤ ❤ ❤

My Top Skin Care Tips:

1. There is such thing as too much of a good thing. I remember I was so obsessed with having perfectly smooth skin, I would exfoliate every single day, morning and night. I realized that my excessive scrubbing had seriously agitated my skin and caused it to flare up. This is also relevant to face masks and anything in your skincare routine. It is always so tempting to attack acne with all the treatments you have, but sometimes you just need to ease up and let your skin breath for a day or two.

2. Make sure your towels, face cloths and any other thing you use are totally clean. I know it’s easy to say ‘oh I can get one more wash out of this’ but things like clothes and fabric collect bacteria easier than you think, and can transfer bacteria to your face unknowingly. If you don’t have a face cloth I completely recommend investing in a few to save money as well as helping the environment.

3. Coconut oil is definitely the new obsession since 2017. And for good reason too! As we already know This little powerhouse is an amazing moisturizer  ( and tastes delicious in cooking 😋) but another great use for it is to help grow your eyebrows/eyelashes. That’s right, coconut oil is full of vitamins and proteins that nourish the follicles of your lashes and brows, encouraging growth and thickness. Just be careful when using oil around your eyes. 😊  I will put it on my brows as part of my nighttime routine and let it soak in before I go to bed.

4. Double Cleansing is one of the most recent steps I’ve added to my skincare regime. The results it gave me were amazing after I had suffered from a break out of acne on my forehead and chin. I didn’t get it. I was doing my regular skincare routine and it just didn’t work anymore. That’s when I discovered that double cleansing is one of the only ways to really get rid of all the dirt and impurities that our skin picks up throughout the day. A single cleanse is often enough to wash away makeup and make the skin ‘look’ clean, but if your pores are extra stubborn like mine, that second cleanse is super necessary for getting rid of the leftover dirt and makeup that the first cleanse doesn’t get. I typically use the Clinique Take the Day Off cleansing balm to remove makeup, and then I use a liquid face wash of some sort after. Lately, I’ve been loving the Clean and Clear night relaxing facial cleanser. It’s a great price and I love how it makes my skin feel after ❤️

I hope this has maybe helped in any way! Please let me know what some of your tips are in the comments as I love to keep educating myself on the topic 😀

Cheers!
