My Summer Beauty Bag

What does summer mean for my beauty routine? Living in Florida, my summer makeup looks have to account for three main things: sunshine, humidity, and higher temperatures.

Tried and True: The Best Mascaras for Length and Volume

Mascara is a simple yet powerful step in a makeup routine. I’ve found that, if I don’t feel like doing a lot of makeup, as long as I fill in my eyebrows and put on mascara, I feel polished and ready to go.
