I think primers make a huge difference in the way my makeup looks, feels and applies on the skin. I feel like a few years ago primer wasn't even a 'thing', but here we are with so many different types of primers that do so many things. Currently in my collection I have high-end and drugstore primers, that range from smoothing, to mattifying to pore minimizing. I have oily skin and large pores, so you won't be seeing any hydrating products in my collection. I mostly need a primer to help keep my matte and help my makeup stay on all day. Please let me know in the comments what your favorites primers are so I can check them out!

Happy Sunday everyone! The weekend is here, and I love going on road trips and traveling to friends and family on the weekend. One of the struggles of traveling for a makeup addict like myself is packing all the makeup I need, but with the least amount of products. For that, I have my go-to travel palettes, whether it's an all-in-one eyeshadow palette, a complete face palette, or a face/eye palette to really get the job done.

I'm sure, like many of you, I have so many mascaras opened at the same time. In my opinion, mascaras are the products that go the fastest. So I am constantly opening and trying new mascaras. Currently, in my opened-mascara-collection, I have a mix of high end and drugstore mascaras, and I also have some primers/top coats I am currently using. I also thought I would mix up this post a little and divide the mascaras by the Good, Bad and Ugly. Some of these mascaras are my holy grail, while others I will definitely be trashing after writing this post. Keep reading for all the details!

Happy Sunday everyone! With the summer coming to an end (sadly!), I wanted to share my sweatproof makeup look. Now, this isn't a look to wear to the beach or the pool. But if you're going somewhere on a hot summer day or night, these are products you can trust to last. I tend to have oily skin, and when it's hot, I sweat like no other, so these are products are 'tried and true' that work for my skin.

As a beauty blogger and makeup lover, I am always hauling and trying out new products. Some products make it to my blog as favorites, and other don't even get mentioned. So, I wanted to start a new series on my blog where I talk about and give my first impressions on the makeup I am currently trying out. Let me know in the comments if you enjoy reading these types of posts!

Hello everyone! It has been quite a while since I've done a blogging tips post!

I've been trying to keep myself busy outside of the house, but there have been many lazy days I've spent working on my blog. If you're bored, like me here are 7 tips/things I've done to help improve my blog.
