This is only my second time using striping tape and not gonna lie, I was starting to lose patience with it when trying to match up where two of the ends would meet. Practice makes perfect though so expect to see more posts with me using it. If you have any suggested color combos or anything beauty/fashion related that you would like to see in a future post, leave a comment, email, or contact me at any of the links below.

FOTD: A Lil Bit Of Sunshine.


So I finally gave into the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow hype a little while ago.  Although it claims to be smudge-free and waterproof, I don't find that to be the case for me. If I touch them they will smudge but they do hold up well during a sweaty workout. It makes my brows look better than ever though so I love it for that reason. Any other oily faces have this problem? I'll be trying out the NYX eyebrow gel next.

Onto the look...
I love the way a pop of yellow looks on a neutral eye and this deep lipstick compliments it so well.
