    Fall Golden Glow Makeup // Awkward Girl Does Her Makeup II

    With fall just around the corner (well, probably here for most of you), I wanted to share my fall golden glow makeup tutorial (Part 2 of “Awkward Girl Does Her Makeup“). In my Everyday Makeup Routine video, I shared the exact steps and makeup I use every day to do my makeup. I keep it super simple, skip the foundation, and call it a day… But sometimes, I shnazz it up a bit with some foundation and eyeshadow, and I’ve gotten a lot of requests on my Instagram to share the steps I use to do the golden eyeshadow look I use a lot.     I used some new…

    My Everyday Makeup Routine // Awkward Girl Does Her Makeup

    After getting a few requests over the years, I finally decided to film a video on my everyday makeup routine. This makeup routine is what I’ve been doing almost every day for 5+ years now. Once I discovered how to do a wing…it was all over for me. Almost everything in the video is from the drugstore except the Jeffree Star highlighter, which was worth every penny. I literally had no idea how much L’Oreal makeup until I filmed this video. I’m not sponsored, but some of the links below are affiliate links on Amazon. I’ll list everything below… Concealer: L’Oreal Paris Cosmetics Infallible Pro Glow Concealer  (this is what…

    Review of My Second StitchFix! Should I Buy Again?

    Check out my second StitchFix! What I got, what I thought and what I bought (woah woah rhyming.) StitchFix is a subscription box for women’s clothing. You can order it to come every month, every other month, OR you can just schedule it whenever you feel like it which I love. If you buy everything in the box (5 pieces total) then you get a pretty significant discount on the items, so my goal is to love everything in the box so I can get the discount! Ha. Another thing I love about StitchFix is that they have a very detailed questionnaire that helps your stylist determine your size and what…

    All About Curly Hair! Care, Cut, Styling and Products

    I always get a lot of questions about my hair, and I LOVE talking about it, probably because I hated it for so long before learning to love it. It is my belief that your hair looks best when you style it the way it wants to be styled! And since learning how to take care of my curly hair, it has become very low maintenance. I still have bad hair days, but I’ve learned what to do to make life easier. See below the video for a list of products I use! I don’t get paid to share this info with you. It’s based completely on experience 🙂 Here…

    Beauty: It Touches Everything

    What would it be like if you lived each day, each breath, as a work of art in progress? Imagine that you are a masterpiece unfolding, every second of every day, a work of art taking form with every breath. — Thomas Crum On my vision board, one of the quotes says ‘Beauty: it touches everything’. One thing I am incredibly grateful for is the fact that even though I have experienced a lot of sadness since my dad’s death, I see the last few months as positive light. I have grown and changed and had opportunities to see vey clearly how God is carrying me and using me. I…
