Hey party people!

So remember how I said I’d be blogging differently this year? (If you forgot or missed the post, check it out here) Part of my blogging differently is to be able to give you more dynamic posts that you can learn even more from—but creating content like that takes time. And since I’d been busy with projects, my secret beauty event, and a big task I’ve undertaken, there will sometimes be times like now where I can’t put up new content. Not to worry because since I have TONS of amazing content I’m sure you haven’t see yet ;)

Bronzers for Dark Skin

Bronzers for Dark Skin

“Bronzers for dark skin?”

“But we’re already brown/bronze?”

Many moons ago I, too, did not get the whole bronzer thing (well, I understood bronzer—just didn’t see it as for my skin tone), but back then not very many brands were making bronzers deep enough to make a difference on darker skin tones. But also many moons after that, I got my hands on some that did come deep enough and have been a bronzer fan since. I thought now would be an amazing time to do another bronzers for dark skin post because with it being winter and all, many of us can use a little extra glow.

The Other Reason to Use Nivea Men Sensitive Post Shave Balm

nivea-men-post-shave-balm-as-primer

Recently I was tasked to try out Nivea Men Sensitive Post Shave Balm which many on Youtube have been raving about as an inexpensive substitute for makeup primer. The reason it works for those enthusiastic beauty gurus is because the product contains glycerin which acts kind of like a glue to keep makeup put for hours. I side-eyed it, but since Nivea Men Sensitive Post Shave Balm *is* a product meant to go on the face (unlike Milk of Magnesia, Monistat, and whatever household items your cousins on Youtube are putting on their faces), I gave it a go. It’s also priced at $5.99 for 3.3 oz which if you’re watching your budget very closely, is still about half the price of even drugstore makeup primers.
