Top 10 Black Friday Beauty Deals

This is my 3rd year sharing my Black Friday beauty deals, but this year I've done things a little different. Instead of posting random deals and coupon codes, I've rounded up 10 of my favorite beauty websites and shared what I like to think are the best deals. There are some steep discounts on high-end skincare and makeup in this post (I'm talking 25% off Sunday Riley if you play your cards right). And just like always I've added the Ebates cash back rate if the website is offering cash back. If you're not already a member of Ebates, like seriously where have you been? The website is completely free and it's very easy to use online, through the phone app, and also in select physical stores. With just a few clicks of your mouse you'll be able to earn cash back on most of your Black Friday and Cyber Monday purchases. I honestly advise you to get your credit cards and PayPal accounts ready because the savings are coming your way!

Review | Fenty Beauty Match Stix

Fenty Beauty Match Stix Review
If you've followed my blog for quite a while, then you already know how much I love stick products. In fact I event have a full blog post about my favorite stick products titled "5 Stick Products to Try Out," all of them which I would still highly recommend (with the exception of the Estée Edit Pore Vanishing Stick because the brand no longer exists. RIP Estée Edit). Thankfully there's a new stick product on the market that I've become completely obsessed with and they are the Fenty Beauty Match Stix. The Match Stix have become a staple in my makeup routine ever since I picked up the Match Stix Trio during the Fenty Beauty launch weekend. In this post I'm going to share what I like and don't like about these sticks, as well as a quick tutorial using the sticks.

Get Ready With Me: Arcade Fire Concert

Get Ready With Me: Arcade Fire Concert
As you may or may not know, I've been to a lot of concerts of concerts this year. My goal was to attend 30 concerts in 2017 and I'm actually very close to making that goal a reality. Just in case you wanted to know, I'm only 4 concerts shy of meeting my goal which is very exciting. Since I do get requested to film concert looks often, I decided to film the look I did for Arcade Fire using all Milk Makeup products. Usually I tone down my makeup for concerts but that wasn't the case for Arcade Fire. I needed a lot of Electric Blue and Reflektor vibes for this particular concert look.

Everyday Look feat. L.A.B.2
Despite the fact that I work at a makeup boutique, I do get quite lazy with my makeup at times. When life gets busy, my makeup routine becomes more minimal and quick. As you may remember from previous posts, I am in love with stick products because of their versatility and ease of use but recently I've been using some new stick products on the market. My new stick obsessions are none other than the Fenty Beauty Match Stix which have an incredible cream to powder formula that holds up beautifully on my oily skin. In this post I'm going to be sharing with you how I use the Fenty Beauty Match Stix to achieve an easy everyday look and I'm also going to be using some affordable brushes from L.A.B.2.

My regular monthly favorites are back! The format will remain the same for the most part, so I'm going to be sharing the five products that stood out to me the most. The only minor change that I made this time around is that I'll be applying said products on my face. So it's basically a monthly favorites meets Get Ready With Me video. This past month I discovered my favorite foundation and ~surprise, surprise~ it's from bareMinerals. Despite the fact that I work for the company, it truly is a bomb foundation for my oily skin. And if it can survive 90ºF weather, then that makes it pretty much holy grail material.
