Today I wore a smattering of freckles for fun, and ya know…it’s a little weird to touch up your real freckles to make them blend in and look as “freckle-y” as your fake ones, but hey, ya gotta do what ya gotta do in the pursuit of makeup experimentation!…

Are You an Aveeno Kinda Girl or Guy? – Beauty Article

AHHHHHHH Ahhhhh, Aveeno! Remember that ad? Whoever dreamt that up is the real MVP because here I am, years later, saying “Ahhhhh, Aveeno,” every time I use Aveeno.

It’s non-fussy, natural-looking makeup that I wore to go to dinner and window shopping with the fam-bam last Saturday, so, minimal base coverage with an ultra sheer tinted moisturizer and soft, barely-there color on my lids, lips and cheeks. There’s also the…

Product Spotlight: Hawaii Edition – Makeup and Beauty Blog – Beauty Article

A few things (aloha and TGIF, BTW): 1. Running in 85-degree weather with 67% humidity is like hauling your limbs slow-motion through corn chowder.
