Everyday Favorites

Happy Monday friends! I’m back with another beauty post, and today I’m sharing my current everyday makeup favorites.

I’ve been all about simplicity when it comes to my makeup these days, and many of the products are staples in my collection for a fast makeup look.

Yes please!

Hi there friends, and happy Monday! As I’ve become more interested in natural and cruelty-free cosmetics, I’ve done a bit of research on nail polishes.

I put my nail polish collection through a bit of a detox, and today I want to talk about some brands that have remained favorites in my collection. Let’s go!

4 Perfect Cruelty-Free Rose-Brown Lipsticks

4 Cruelty Free Spring Lipsticks RoseFor years I played around with different lip colors from reds to pinks to berries, trying to discern what shades worked for me. I never felt I had found anything that suited me perfectly until the advent of the rose-brown lip trend a few years back. I tried out a 90s inspired shade and was instantly hooked! Since that day, deep neutral lip shades have become my signature beauty look, and I’ve enjoyed curating a collection of favorites. From mattes to creams and opaque formulas to sheer, today I’m sharing my favorite rose-brown lipsticks. Bonus: they’re all cruelty free, and two  are 100% vegan!

Free up some space in your beauty stash– today we’re talking lipstick!

The Weekender // No. 18

chicago-evanston-coffee-shopWell friends, another weekend is here, and I’m spending it trying to get over a cold which means lots of ginger tea and quiet work. Despite being ill, I can’t say I’m mad about it! I got back from Chicago late Wednesday night, and can’t wait to share all of the content I shot while I was traveling– I even tried my hand at creating a travel and outfit vlog that I’ll be posting to my YouTube channel soon! Life has been pretty quiet this week since I’m a teacher, and it’s spring break. I’m grateful for the opportunity to rest and recover, and I’m looking forward to being back to working with my students on Monday.

But for now, it’s time for another round of weekend links!
