Review: Morphe 35OM Eyeshadow Palette

"Beauty, Eyes, Eyeshadows, Makeup, Uncategorized"

Morphe eyeshadow palettes are wildly popular - particularly the 35O Matte Palette ($23)! It's no secret that tons of beauty gurus receive affiliate codes for Morphe, meaning they make a commission off of the product if you use their code. So my question has always been "Are Morphe palettes really that good or are people pushing their products so they can make a commission?" That's honestly why I've waited so long to actually purchase a palette. I kind of wanted a matte palette that had a lot of brown shades, so I decided "why not"?   [caption width="960" id="attachment_2967" align="aligncenter"] Morphe 35O Matte Palette[/caption] (more…)

How I edit my Instagram Pictures

"Beauty, Uncategorized"

First things first, you have to take a picture (duh!). But what camera should you use and does it actually make a difference?

Compared to other phones like the Samsung and the Google Pixel, the camera just doesn't perform as well. It also doesn't capture details like a professional camera would.

It got delayed which was a bummer because it cut into our plans but that's okay. It was still an amazing trip nonetheless. [gallery type="square" size="medium" ids="2822,2823"] VIEW THIS POST

Setting Powders: Ben Nye vs. Laura Mercier


So many brands have setting powders - how do you know which ones to choose?! From watching a bagillion reviews on Youtube, I narrowed it down to these two: the Ben Nye setting powder and the Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder. Quality: I think they are both high quality products. I ordered my Ben Nye powder from Amazon and the sifter didn't work, but that was the only problem I had quality wise. They both feel like very luxurious products Flashback? Nope. Fine-ness: They are both pretty finely milled. However, I do find the Laura Mercier to be a bit more finely milled. It's so smooth and almost silly, if that makes sense. When I bake with the Ben Nye Powder, I can actually feel the product on my skin, and the product being…
