Spring Eye Makeup w/ Jeindeer

Morning everyone! It’s finally warming up enough to ditch those heavy winter clothes, and I wanted to celebrate by whipping together a simple springy pastel makeup look. All the products I used are shown below, minus an e.l.f eyeshadow primer that somehow escaped the pile. […]

Rainbow Unicorn & Rose Gold Makeup Brushes

Hello, Lovelies! It seems like the two top trends that are battling it out at the moment are mermaids v.s unicorns. The latest I’ve seen are these mermaid tailed brushes, and although they are drop dead gorgeous, I think the clunky handles push them into the […]
