[Mascara Routine] Long Lashes featuring Essence mascaras!

Hello everybody! :-)

I know what you're thinking - yet another routine... It's getting old! But I really wanted to share this and I promise there will be different posts coming up in the near future :-)

I get a lot of questions about my lashes (online and in real life) - whether they're real or fake, and what I use to get them to look like this. So I decided to dedicate a blog post to the topic!

Let's get started :-)

[Foundation Routine] Dewy & natural!

Hello everyone :-)

I really enjoyed sharing my eyebrow routine with you yesterday, so today I thought why not share my foundation routine!

I always struggle with my foundation since I get "cakey" very easily. I also have pretty dry skin and hate that ├╝ber matt look (on myself! Other people somehow manage to look good with it), which is why I got very excited when the dewy look became a trend a few years back. Finally, companies were releasing products to make your skin look fresh and natural instead of super flat, and countless Youtubers were uploading tutorials on how to get that perfectly dewy face!

I spent years (literally years) looking for my own perfect combination of products to really get my face dewy. These days I have a few favorites that I use everyday, and I want to share them with you! :-)

[Eyebrow Routine] Groomed but natural-looking brows!

Hello everyone! :-)

Wooo, my first real post! *does happy dance* Nevermind. Let's start with today's topic!

Brows (aside from contouring -- uh sorry, I meant strobing, of course! Contouring is sooo 2014) are ZE hottest thing on Instagram right now and have been for quite a while. Of course, I've tried the super-defined ultra fierce Sharpie brows that look totally fetch on pretty much everyone. Except me. When I did it, I looked like I'd drawn big black bars on my forehead. Definitely not cute. They made me look like a man, the products I tried were way too dark for my pale skin (even though I have very dark hair). I was frustrated and abandoned the field. I caked my face, smoked my shadows, winged my liner but my brows stayed naked, feeling lonely and forgotten... And out of place.

A few weeks ago, I decided that I had neglected my poor eyebrows for too long and decided to give the whole "brows on fleek" thing another shot. This time, I picked a lighter color to draw on fill in my little babies, and BOOM -- it worked!

First post!

Hey there and welcome to my blog! This is my very first post. I'm really excited to start posting here on adding some glitter.

I plan on writing about beauty-related things (makeup tutorials, product reviews, favorites etc.) and maybe some personal, not makeup related things like my two cents on issues in our society. I hope you'll stick around and have fun! Have a great day!
