Wet N Wild Haul & First Impressions | 1 Month YouTube-iversary!

I finally received my Wet N Wild Cosmetics order in the mail, and immediately sat down to do a haul and first impressions of all of the products I got. Products ranging from foundation, to blush, highlighters, eye shadow, and lipstick!

It has also been one month since I started my YouTube channel. I'm proud of myself for finally doing it, though it has proven to be a lot of work. I did expect that going into it though. I also expected that it will take a while to build an audience. I am very surprised and grateful for the 40+ subscribers I currently have! Thank you so much for watching and subscribing... and of course for encouraging me along the way. Who knows where we will be at the two month mark?!

Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder vs. NYC Smooth Skin Loose Face Powder

As someone who won't spend a lot of money on a high end makeup product without some serious convincing... it took a lot for me to realize that I needed the Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder which retails for $38. It's so silky smooth, you need so little to set your face, and it lasts all day. So is the more affordable NYC Smooth Skin Loose Face Power a dupe? It costs anywhere from $3-$5. Too good to be true, right?

Spring Makeup Tutorial | Makeup For Allergies

Spring has sprung! I have a love/hate relationship with Spring, because I have allergies. Along with the sunshine, the flowers, and the baby animals comes pollen, weeds, and even mold. However, I love the beautiful colors that Spring inspires. This tutorial is a every day wearable makeup look worthy of the beauty of Springtime. I also mention a few tips as an allergy sufferer on how to make your makeup last longer amongst the water eyes and how to counteract red, irritated eyes. Thank you for watching!

Grow Your Eyebrows & Eyelashes | Jamaican Black Castor Oil

Many of us went through the late 90's and the early 2000s, and we followed the trend of thin eyebrows. We over-plucked. It happened. What do we do now? Are they gone forever?
