I have been obsessed with all things beauty related since I played with my Aunt’s makeup as a little girl. My philosophy is simple – everything looks better when built from a beautiful foundation. I believe that you must start by caring for your skin, hair and nails by nourishing them from the inside while caring for your body through exercise and healthy eating.
I am a self-proclaimed Makeup Junkie, Hair Care Addicted Blonde and Mask Enthusiast. While I am not a licensed makeup artist or dermatologist I am an avid consumer that has spent over 15 years forming my opinions and obsessing over ingredients, efficacy and trying to find the perfect products for myself and friends. My beauty blog was born from that passion and desire to share great finds with everyone. Which is also why I joined Influenster.
This is by far the absolute best hairdryer I have ever used. It has multiple settings so that you can change the speed, and temperature. The attachments of either the director nozzle or the hand diffuser work perfectly to achieve any style I want. This also has a cool shot feature that I find very handy for sealing my look at the end. This hair dryer does not damage my hair and leaves my hair perfectly styled. I have been using this for several years and it hasn't died on me yet.
I know that this Wave spray by Ouia is wildly popular and receives a lot of Social media attention. However, I am not a fan. I found that it leaves my hair sticky, and the product is drying. It roughens my cuticle too much and makes my hair look dull. I think for my hair texture this is definitely not for me. OUAI Wave Spray
I know that lots of folks rave about this shampoo and conditioner and say that it works super well on dry hair. However, I find this simply adequate and nothing special. I have bleached blonde hair and I do not think that this is moisturizing enough for me. I also don't think that it is very good at helping the hair become slippery enough to allow for the effortless removal of tangles. I think if your hair is normal to slightly dry this would likely work well. This is not a solution for damaged or very dry hair.
This is one of my absolute favorites for filling in my Eyebrows. The formula is great, it glides on effortlessly without tugging, or pulling, and it sets to a powdery finish that stays in place. The spoolie on the other end is super helpful for blending out hard lines. The only thing that could make this better is if it were waterproof.
This secret camouflage concealer by Laura Mercier works very well for anyone under the age of 35 that does not have dry skin. I found that after turning 40 this became too drying around my eyes unless I really piled on the moisturizer and eye primer. Other than that this concealer really does it's job well – it conceals! Over the years I have been able to conceal heinous zits and bruises flawlessly. I do recommend this if you need full coverage concealing and you don't have dry or mature skin.

I have to say I did not love this. However, I don't generally love sea salt sprays. My hair is straight and bleached and salt sprays leave my hair feeling dry and brittle or sticky. This did smell nice at least and I think that on a different hair type this might work better.
I really Love this Argan Hair oil. The bottle lasts forever and the product smells great. Leaves my hair silky, shiny and manageable. It also helps prevent tangles. My husband also uses this on his thick curly hair and he loves it too. The scent is gender neutral and is just pleasant.
I love tweezer man tweezers! I actually carry this one around in my purse at all times, hey, you never know when you might have an eyebrow emergency. Seriously though these have come in handy for more things than just brows, I.e, picking up tiny items, repositioning your protective glass on your phone, etc.
I really like this color and I thought that it held up relatively well. My chief gripe with the brand is that they haven't moved to a healthier formula like many of their competitors. I would use OPI more often if they are formulation was 5-free or better yet 7 or 10-free. They have one of the most impressive color selections of all the polish brands.
