A Spring Makeup Look for Dark Skin + Trying New Products for the First Time

Spring Makeup

It seems A LOT of new products came out after January—I STILL have a box full of products to photograph, swatch, test, and review. But because I was getting a bit backed up on featuring some of them, I decided it’d be a good idea to use as many as I could in a makeup video: NYX Cosmetics Cream Highlight & Contour Palette in Deep, Make Up For Ever Pro Sculpting Palette in #40 and #50, and a few other things.

Sometimes you guys “blame” me for creating new makeup addictions for you (which I of course like to think of it as matchmaking—I pair you with amazing things I think you should try…lol), but you guys sometimes make me want stuff. Like back in July when I did my #TSABDLips challenge on Instagram, I had a list of SO SO many wants and wound up buying these three YSL lipsticks. YSL though is one of my favorite makeup brands so it wasn’t really a ton of arm-twisting going on when I was in the process of buying…lol.

I’m heading to Miami tomorrow for Mercedes-Benz Swim Week! I was just in Miami a few weeks ago and earlier this year but happy to be going back—especially because it means I get to go back to this cafe I really, really, really loved (Maxine’s Bistro & Bar—the breakfast is divine and you MUST have the Cuban coffee). Other than being severely greedy (lol) I’m excited about Swim Week! I’ll be hitting quite a number of shows, covering backstage beauty with some great brands like Cover FX, beautyblender, and TRESemmé, going to parties, and hopefully have some downtime for lounging…lol.
