In honor of the new, and really cool Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt interactive special “Kimmy vs. The Reverend” on Netflix, which is basically a Choose Your Own Adventure book come to life, I decided to have a spa night with the hilarious Lauren Adams from the show! Full disclosure...no spoilers! Instead, with her cult hit Instagram page @MaskingForTrouble, Lauren Adams from "The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" is someone I've been wanting to team up with for a skincare face mask side by side trial forever! We have mutual friends dating as far back to high school and college, so this was a collaboration that was meant to be. Join us for a girls night with tips for positivity, gratitude, and joy, plus lots of deep dive skincare tips from the expert on face masks. Seriously, she must have tried hundreds. She’s even made special trips to the Korean shopping district in New York, and has even been to South Korea!
I started using make-up relatively late, at least compared to my friends in school. When I was younger I believed there was no need for make-up because natural beauty is abundant on its own. That was until I hit puberty and acne forced me to change my mind.

I’m sure we’ve all seen by now that NikkieTutorials came out in a tear jerking video that she is a trans-woman. If you’re unfamiliar with NikkieTutorials, she is a Dutch make up artist and beauty vlogger. In 2015 her video, “The Power of Makeup” went viral and her online fame soared. As of Oct. 2019 her Youtube channel has 12.4 million subscribers and over 1.1 billion views.
Episode 4 is here, and it gave us so much of what we needed. This is where we say all the leg work into the collection, and we got some very important information and more sneak peaks!
So unrelated to the actual content, but I wanted to note that it is awful how another one of Jeffree’s dogs, Daddy Star, unfortunately passed away, due to complications from a liver surgery. This would be the second dog lost in five months for Jeffree. I can only imagine just how tough this must be for him, especially when Daddy was only three years old. So, our thoughts are with Jeffree and the rest of the family.
Ok so let’s talk how about Shane Dawson and Jeffree Star's new video about the beauty industry and all that actually goes into the makeup industry. Part one and two have just come out and they are mind blowing really in all the information we have learnt already with the industry and then to find out that Shane is not only creating an eyeshadow palette but also an entire collection.
On August 13th, the Morphe X Jeffree Star artistery eyeshadow palette launched, which is exactly two days before the release of Jackie Aina’s collaboration with Anastasia Beverly Hills for her own eyeshadow palette. To be very honest, I do not care for Jeffree Star, at all. Jackie, on the other hand, is one of my biggest inspirations and so I will not even try to be impartial in this discussion. However, I cannot help myself but be very curious as to why Jackie’s collab was so heavily criticized by many, people insinuating that she did not deserve it, and that ABH should have given this opportunity to another youtuber (*insert here a list of all the White beauty gurus on youtube.*) Once I recognized that pattern in people’s opinions, I then started wondering how come Jeffree Star’s collab didn’t receive such backlash and how come his empire is only getting bigger and bigger regardless of his shady past. Now the answer to that last question is pretty easy: not many people ever had an issue with his past, or perhaps… they ''forgave'' him.
