Strobing: Your New Favorite Summer Makeup

So, I've been back on the east coast a mere few days, and it already has me California dreamin' for that desert climate that I've come to love. Luckily, the hot and humid weather is no match for my new favorite makeup.

Presenting: Strobing. Aka - the anti-contouring. You may have seen my contouring video in the past - and that's still a great look for a night out. Or the cooler months. But nothing goes better with the sticky weather than this dewy, fresh looking face. Check it out:

PS, heres the full list of products I used in the video (click each name for the link to purchase): Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint, YSL Touche Eclat Pen, Laura Mercier Radiance Highlighter, and of course my DIY Rosewater Toner. So give this a try, I bet you'll love it.

MOG Gets Gloss-y

Happy Saturday, cool kids! I wanted to share with you some new favorites of mine from the it-girl skincare brand, Glossier. Now, it's no secret that I was already a fan. In fact, my love affair with them began months ago - when their dual masks were March's #MASKOFTHEMONTH. (Click here for that post!)

But, as luck would have it, Emily Weiss and the Glossier girls were having a popup shop here in LA at the Santa Monica NastyGal store. Naturally, I had to be there. 

In short, it was a dream. Great branding + Good Skincare + Chic Females = match made in MOG heaven. Added bonus: their all-pink packaging fits in perfect with this week's theme! I made sure to pick up a few new things to share with you all today.

First - their delicious, creamy, Priming Moisturizer. So hydrating, but not at all greasy - it'll easily integrate into any skincare routine you already have. Follow it up with their Perfecting Skin Tint - the PERFECT shear wash of color that just evens out your skintone, without clogging pores. Enriched with diamond powder, it provides the most dreamy, summery glow. Yum.

If you're in LA - I highly advise heading to Santa Monica this weekend for some fun-in-the-sun with a side of skincare. And if you're not in LA, head to Glossier.com to snag these products - and more! And PS, if you haven't yet - don't forget to Subscribe to our YouTube channel for your chance to win our giveaway!
