Yellow Eyeshadow Look


If you remember a year ago I did a post called One Of These Nights, where I recreated Red Velvet's makeup from their One of These Nights music video. The makeup focused heavily on a true pink gradient lips and bright yellow eyeshadow.

It seemed like a very outlandish makeup look to wear very casually. However, after watching this video by Lisa Eldrige, I have come to realize this is actually quite wearable. 

I was able to do the vivid eye makeup on my older sister, who has an eye shape similar to mine. I thought I would share the products I used and how I did the look.

5 Single Eyeshadows I Am Loving


I think I am addicted to buying single eyeshadows. It probably has to do with me not being able to commit to using large palettes in their entirety, which make me guilty considering I just keep buying more palettes.

I have, however, found a love for single eyeshadows because they allow me to really pick and choose what is best for me, instead of committing to big palettes.

Today, I thought I would share five single eyeshadows I am addicted to atm.

What makeup does SM Entertainment use on their idols?


After researching for quite some time, I am finally ready to share this post with everyone. Today, I will be sharing my research on what makeup SM Entertainment, A Korean Entertainment company, uses on their idols. I like to think of this post as a piece of ratchet investigative journalism because I cannot 100% conclude this is the makeup SM idols use, but I can give some propelling evidence.

Also, before we begin, any links with an asterisk (*) are affiliate links.


Right now, the Korean beauty industry is booming due to their specialization in natural looking makeup. When idols go on music shows, most of the comments under their performance videos are not in regard to their talent, but how beautiful they all are. And trust me when I say this, THEY ARE BEYOND TALENTED.

I used to buy a lot of Korean beauty products, thinking that using them I would look as beautiful as an idol. Therefore, I always believed Korean idols wore BB Creams when they perform. However, a few years ago, I was watching Hyuna (formerly of 4MINUTE ;_;) and saw she was wearing a BB Cream which left a very obvious white cast on her face, video here. Which made me ask the question...What kind of makeup do idols actually wear?

This started my journey to the truth...

15 TV shows you need to binge-watch right now


Suprise! I am uploading on a Monday! I think from now on I will upload on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Today, I was supposed to post a really fun blog post for all the K-pop/Korean Beauty fans out there, but I am not yet done with it. I thought it would be better to give myself an extra day or two instead of trying to complete it quickly. I spent a really long time researching for that post and I am making sure I find as many sources as possible. Never fear because that post will be up either Wednesday or Friday.

Since I have been on a HUGE Golden Girls binge-watching session, I thought I would share 15 TV shows I would recommend everyone to watch right away!

Clean & Clear Continuous Control Acne Cleanser


It has been quite some time since I did a product review, so today, I thought I would share my thoughts on the Clean & Clear Continous Control Acne Cleanser*. This is going to be a very quick review because I have pretty solid thoughts on it. This was recommended to me by my older brother, who struggled with acne alongside me. He said it was the best, and of course, I got to test that claim.

My Current Beauty Wishlist

Current Beauty WishlistMy Current Beauty Wishlist_TP

If you have ever seen me lurking in the comment section of any blog, then you might have witnessed me, in the comments, say, "OMG, I want that!" or "I am adding that to my wishlist." However, this wishlist cannot be found anywhere. It is as if I am adding beauty products to an endless void. Recently, I have been utilising my MAKEUP // Products Board on Pinterest, which has a large array of makeup products I am interested. Today, I thought I would share a few. 

As many of you may know, Pixi skincare is the craze in the UK, and I have seen that obsession slowly trickle down into the USA. Many people are aware of the Glow Tonic that has been tried by everyone and their dogs, except me. How people describe it reminds me of the Etude House Skin Mal:gem Smoother, reviewed here, that I was obsessed with when I started TP.

How I use Peppermint Oil and Tea Tree Oil in my beauty routine.


Believe it or not, but I have been using natural oils in my beauty routine for years. They are, in my opinion, cheaper and healthier than anything found at the skincare counter in Nordstrom. So I thought it would be beneficial to some if I share how I use them.

Natural oils can be used for a plethora of things from a nasal decongestant to skin treatments. I know Jaclyn Hill uses peppermint oil as a nasal decongestant and for aromatherapy purposes. Eons ago, I talked about how I used oil from India to treat my hair here. Nowadays, I mainly use Tea Tree Oil and Peppermint Oil.

May Goals


Hello everyone! Since I am off for the next four months, I thought it was time for me to set goals for myself. Last month's goals, link here, did not go very well because I was extremely busy due to finals and school activities.

Current MAC Lipstick Collection

Current MAC Liptick Collection

Yoohoo! I have returned. To save you from the typical "I am happy I am back. I missed blogging. I will do better in the future" speech, let's jump right into the post.

I decided a nice way to flow back into blogging was to highlight my current MAC lipstick collection. I currently have four lipsticks to share, many of which are MAC classics, as well as a MAC Matte Retro Liquid Lipstick. 

The first MAC lipstick I have ever purchased was Velvet Teddy (Matte). If you are a girl on the tanner side, I highly recommend this. It is hands-down my go-to nude lipstick that fits my skin tone perfectly.
