Here are my three favorite cruelty free brands across three price points, affordable, medium, and medium-high. (1) NYX NYX is my favorite affordable cruelty free brand. The products […]


Makeup Wars Favorite Hair Tools


Makeup Wars this week looks at our favorite  hair tools! T3 Featherweight Or Hair Dryer: Top of the line and expensive, but worth the cost. I have had a T3 for years, while every cheap dryer I ever bought did a lesser job and broke within a year. Over time, the value is actually greater […]


Makeup Wars Color Wars Blue

Color Wars

This time around for Makeup Wars we are all looking at different colors. I took blue, which is interesting because blue is a color that I adore looking at, and I keep buying blue eye shadow pigments, but it doesn’t always actually look good on me. I have to use it in small doses. I […]


Makeup Wars: Favorite Purple Polish


  This Makeup Wars is short and sweet, and purple! My favorite purple polish, at least at the moment, is Zoya Tru.  In fall and winter I often go for deeper purples, but this one is a fun shade for summer. See more favorite purple polishes at the links below!


Makeup Wars Summer Foundation


    This round of Makeup Wars looks at summer complexion fix ups. I always focus in summer on powder foundation and tinted moisturizer. I have a couple of clear favorites in this department. In summer I often switch to a very light foundation. Tinted Moisturizer is often perfect for this. Even though I have oily […]

Makeup Wars Summer Eye Look

For this Makeup Wars, I did a summer eye look using my new Tarte Aqualilies  palette, a gorgeous collection waterproof makeup in neutral shades.  I still need to swatch and review it, so watch for that coming soon. I was headed out for an outdoor beer tasting festival and figured an eye look with some […]


Makeup Wars: Our Favorite Sunscreens


Summer is just around the corner, making sunscreen more important than ever! I have different favorites based on different uses. Here they are. (1) For Daily Use: For daily use, I like to layer Estee Lauder Day Wear moisturizer, SPF 50, under a foundation that also has SPF. Since I often wear powder foundation, this […]


Makeup Wars: The Best Waterproof Makeup


This week, Makeup Wars looks at the best waterproof makeup. I don’t wear a lot of waterproof items, but I do have a few favorites that I particularly like to get out for hot and humid weather. Sweating off your makeup is no fun, so these items are great for avoiding that!   Here are […]

This week the Makeup Wars group looks at the best facial masks. It is also an opportunity to see us in a different state (wearing masks instead of makeup)! Yep, here I am just out of the shower, with wet hair and facial mask! I don’t plan to pin this photo, LOL! I have three […]
