February Beauty Favorites!

Standard

Hello everyone! February sort of flew by, and here are some of my absolute favorite products that I have been loving all month. Some of these are new faves and some are old favorites! I hope you all enjoy and here are my favorites in makeup and haircare for this month!

Makeup:

Loreal lumi illuminator

You guys know how much I love this stuff! I’ve been trying to use it up lately and it gives me such a nice everyday glow.

Rimmel match perfection concealer

I recently rediscovered this! I absolutely love it, it is so lightweight and blends super easily. It doesn’t crease and this might just be my holy grail drugstore concealer!

Lancôme lipstick in The New Pink

One of my friends gave this to me, completely new, so thank you! It is such a pretty pink, it makes your lips look healthy and a little bit brighter. It is comfy to wear and I have been absolutely loving how lightweight and pretty it is!

Girl Talk #1 – Double Standards

Standard

Thank you everyone for following and reading our blogs! We are super excited to start this girl talk series. We believe that some of these things need to talked about, but are too taboo and often don’t get mentioned as much as they should be.

Today’s topic will be double standards girls often face in their families and in everyday life in general.

A majority of girls are in families with brothers who, as they get older, get to experience more opportunities than their sisters.

For example, curfews. Parents often give their daughters a stricter curfew. “You MUST be home by 11pm!”  Both our families have strict curfews, but Hailey has two brothers who don’t have any curfew at all.

I’m sure like us, this fact frustrates you. Constantly being told it’s dangerous to go out at a certain time. Or that you’re too young to do certain things, but then watching your older/younger brother be able to do those certain things. Continue reading

Our Dream Beauty Room Design

Standard

Hello everyone and welcome back to our blog! This week we wanted to do something a bit different and we were inspired by the company Arhaus. Today we are going to show you our ideas for our dream beauty room and vanity, feel free to share your ideas about your dream room in the comments! 

Lighting:

Crystaly chandeliers are absolute favorite for elegance and they look gorgeous. We would put one large one in the center of our beauty room! This is our favorite one and we loved almost everything we saw on Arhaus for lighting

Decor:

We both love white, clean accents and pastel colors (especially mint and light pink). Peony flowers are really pretty accents, and we loved looking at this gorgeous nail and perfume rack. Both of us own a lot of nail polish/ other small beauty items and would love this to store our nail polish and perfume. Continue reading

Milani Color Statement Lipstick Review

Standard

Hello everyone and welcome back to our blog! I hope all of you guys are doing well! Today I’m going to review these Milani color statement lipsticks I got in the beginning of january. Milani and their lip products especially have been slaying on YouTube and all around WordPress so I was super excited to give these a go.


The promise: vitamin a and c infused lipsticks that feel as good on the lips as they look! (Milani website)

Price point: drugstore! (around six dollars)

I have been wearing the bright pink super often. Both have a matte finish which I like, they are so comfortable. Both of them have equal levels of pigmentation so the color statement line is fairly consistent! These do not feather or bleed out of the lip line which is a definite bonus and they are pretty long wearing!

Swatches: Continue reading

Updated Skincare Routine for Dry Skin

Standard

Hello everyone! I did a post like this a wayyy long time ago and I think it is most definitely time for an update. I have almost completely switched everything I use so let’s get into it!

Nightly:

1. Bareminerals Eye Makeup Remover


I love this, its oil based and really does get off your mascara and eyeshadow easily. I am almost out actually!

2. Neutrogena cleansing oil


This is my second step to removing all of my makeup, I like to make sure there is nothing left on my face, since I use a lot of SPF.  It leaves your skin feeling really fresh and hydrated afterward.

3. Neutrogena Purifying Cream Cleanser or Organic Surge Perfecting Face Polish Continue reading

Top 5 Holy Grail Drugstore Products!

Standard

Hello everyone! Welcome back to our blog and I hope you are all having a lovely day. Today I’m going to share with you five drugstore products that I absolutely could not live without! Drugstore makeup is surprisingly amazing quality for the price sometimes, these are my  favorites, if you see these, snap them up!

1. profusion studio contour palette



This is a gorgeous contour palette and the shade selection is spot on for my skin tone. It’s hard to find contour products that don’t look muddy on fair skin but this is perfect. I also love the message behind the brand and it being cruelty free as well as all natural. Read my review here if you want more information!

1. No Smudge mascara by  Bobbi Brown

Wand: 

This is absolutely amazing! I have gone running in this, cried, sweated in it and it has stayed on!

I love that it gives your lashes some length, some volume and is extremely black. As you guys saw in my everyday makeup routine this is a daily favorite of mine!
