Hey everybody! I have a monthly series I’m starting, beauty favorites! I love these kind of posts, since it’s fun to see what people are loving at the moment. My list is a little short this month, since I’ve been playing more with skincare than with makeup. But I have made a couple makeup purchases recently, so there’ll be tons of makeup posts coming soon!
It’s about that time of year again where high school grads are leaving for their first semester of college! This is a fun, if incredibly stressful, process and part of the craziness is trying to figure out what to pack. Thankfully when I left for college, my mom kept me from going nuts and taking everything possible. But one of the things I had the hardest time with was figuring out what makeup to pack, as I’d been collecting makeup for a few years at that point. (A collection I purged at one point and built back up, but that’s a post for another time).
Skincare is definitely being talked about more and more these days, especially with the boom in K Beauty popularity. We’re drowning in products and recommendations, and as with anything there’s a learning curve! There’s so much to learn, so it can be hard to figure out what to do and what not to do (example: coconut oil, yes or no).
While trying to wade through the sea of serums, essences, creams, treatments, masks, and who knows what else, I’ve found that for every thing I’ve tried that has worked for me, there’s ten more that haven’t. And, after doing some searching and asking, it turns out that there are some common mistakes a lot of us have made, intentionally or not. And if you’re like me, where skin is either an insecurity, priority, or both, it’s important to know what’s going wrong in order to get it right.
To kick off the rebirth of my blog, I wanted to discuss something I’ve really been thinking a lot about lately as I try and redefine my approach to blogging and makeup.
In the makeup-sphere on social media, there’s this truth that people seem to dodge around. And while we all “know it” no one talks about it, and I feel that some people completely forget it all together. Namely, there’s always room for improvement! Even people with hundreds of thousands of followers can still learn something new and can somehow improve their work, even if only they know what they can improve upon.
