The Only Makeup Brushes You Need


So I know you already went ahead and caught my "the only makeup products you need" video and blog, but I couldn't keep you hanging there! We all know we can't do makeup without our brushes too and I feel like this needed it's own dedicated video!

In this video I'm showing you guys the only makeup brushes you need in your kit in order to complete a full makeup look. I show you guys 12 different brushes so you guys have options to choose from but in reality, there are only 7 brushes you need, so let's dive in!

OH, stay tuned through the end because I included a bonus section of brushes that I personally use on a daily basis as well, but aren't necessarily brushes you need for a full makeup look. PS, they're awesome ;)

Easy Holiday Makeup Look


This may be coming a little late for some of you, but my Youtube subscribers got the first looks at this one ;) Holiday season is literally the best time of year for makeup, whether it be with sales or all the looks you can experiment with. This is the best time of year to play with color, glitter and anything bold. 

However, some of us simply don't have the time to be experimenting with lengthy, detailed holiday makeup looks while we're rushing to get back from work or class and head out to a party. That being said, I wanted to show you guys that holiday makeup can be both easy, time saving and FUN.


Check out my video down below on my easy holiday makeup look and tag me in any looks you decide to re-create :) 

Products mentioned:

Jaclyn Hill x Morphe Palette

Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter and Glow Liquid Shadows: Gold Goddess

L'Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise

Lilly Lashes: Opulence

Colourpop x Iluvsarahii Matte Liquid Lip: "Mamacita"

Life Update, I'm 23!


Wow does it feel great to be back to blogging! I have been completely focused on my Youtube video lately but I have missed writing to you guys that follow my blog page. If you haven't caught my latest blog post, you should definitely check it out here.


That being said! I have a new video for those of you who are followers of my Youtube channel as well ;) I sat down for the first time and just talked with you guys while doing my makeup! I recently gained a good amount of subscribers and I want to get to know you guys and tell you a bit about me as well. I talk everything from my past year at 22, from the loss I suffered this year, a life update when it comes to BABIES and what I want to see in this next year at 23.


If you want to follow my journey in the goals I'm achieving at 23, go ahead and subscribe! If you just want to hear the hot gossip, go ahead and check out this video below! Lastly, if you want to see the products I used during this video, those are also down below <3
