7 SUPER Easy Ways to Prep Your Skin for the Holiday Party Season & Winter!


It’s that time of year! Whether you’ll be hitting the holiday parties night after night OR hitting the couch to watch Home Alone for an unprecedented amount of times, one thing you need to be doing is keeping that skin together, honey. I stress the importance of skincare all year-round, but you have to think of the things you do all other times of year as prepping for the Olympics that is winter. Winter can be HARD on the skin already, but when you add all the extra cocktails and late night fetes—it can make your skin dry, look lackluster, and can even lead to breakouts. Yikes.

A Refresher on Eye Cream + How to Prevent Concealer from Creasing

how to prevent concealer from creasing

There’s already a mantra about eye cream: you have to stay ready so you don’t have to get ready. And also the best time to start using an eye cream is yesterday. Eye creams are sometimes that forgotten about skincare product people don’t think about until it’s about too late. I, too, at one point many moons ago wasn’t sure I really needed an eye cream in my routine. But through my profession of writing about beauty, I’ve spoken to many derms and skincare experts over the years and have seen the light. The sensitive eye area which typically doesn’t get to see enough much-needed moisture, needs some major TLC (not the chasing waterfalls kind). And for some of you who have trouble preventing your under eye concealer from creasing, eye creams might be even more helpful.


Sephora Pantone Universe Correct + Conceal Palette Review & Swatches Dark Skin

Sephora Pantone Universe Correct + Conceal Palette medium dark

2016 seems to be the year of color correcting though it has always seemed odd to me that this is a “trend” since not everyone will need to color correct.
