Smolder

Outfits

It isn’t a regular occurrence that I opt for an edgier look, but I was feeling like stepping outside my comfort zone with this all black outfit and smokey eye. I usually wear more feminine pieces like skirts or dresses, but with the change in weather I’ve been reaching for skinny jeans and heavier jackets. […]

Current Beauty Favorites

Beauty

I’ve been gravitating towards a more natural makeup look as of late (well, natural to me;) and that’s because I haven’t wanted to bother with eyeshadow. I’ve found that spending the time to perfect and blend my eyeshadow was taking the place of what’s most important to me when it comes to makeup – aka the base/skin. Ever since […]

I’ve battled with blemishes throughout my teenage years and well into college and I’m just now getting a handle on what works best for my skin.

Long Lasting Summer Beauty

Beauty

For a long time I only ever saw the drawbacks in having oily skin. Being 50% Portuguese, battling oil is in my heritage and there’s nothing I can do but embrace it. After trying oil fighting cleansers and lotions throughout the years, I realized that the key to managing oil is to not try and get […]
