    Pictorial: Plum Cut-Crease

    Where I'm from, prom isn't a thing. But despite this, I do know that prom season is upon us. Not everyone can afford to get their makeup all done up for it—or they would much rather do it themselves! Regardless of the reason, I am going to be working tirelessly to produce different eye looks for different makeup skill sets at different price points to help every makeup wearing person out there look cute and shine on their prom night.

    How to Greenify Your Personal Care Routine

    How to Greenify Your Personal Care Routine

    We all know that a healthy mind and body is equal parts what you put in and what you don't. But did you know this concept extends to much more than just the products you eat and drink? In the post-industrialized era, synthetic compounds became much cheaper to produce and use than natural ones, thus many of our common household items actually contain harmful ingredients, hidden in plain sight. This is no more evident than in our hygiene products—products designed to clean, purify, and detoxify are often doing everything but.

    How to Keep Your Face Fresh and Moisturized All Winter

    How to Keep Your Face Fresh and Moisturized All Winter

    I started running long-distance about three years ago now. I started small with 5K runs—a huge jump from the short-distance sprinting I did in high school, and have now run three half-marathons, a couple of 10K runs and a whole lotta 5K's. Running is definitely, mind and body intensive, but many frequent runners forget to take care of their skin.

    How to Make a Powdered Eyeshadow Stick

    How to Make a Powdered Eyeshadow Stick

    Eye makeup can be the biggest hassle. With having to clean eyeshadow brushes, falling glitter, and other hazards of the powder eyeshadow, it’s no wonder so many people are turning to eyeshadow sticks instead. It should be no surprise, though, that these can be expensive, and many makeup lovers are loathe to throw out their old powder eyeshadows, even once they’re broken up or never used. Luckily, it’s actually incredibly easy to create your own powder stick out of whatever eyeshadow you like, creating the perfect eyeshadows for your eye color by your own means. This not only gives you an eyeshadow that stays on better and is easier to apply, it also gives you the opportunity to perfect your color preferences, and to make a product that’s easy to use on the go—something that eyeshadow powder in its compact form is definitely not.
