Listen, when it comes to any makeup trend I’m down for it: trying it at least if not wearing it. TBH beauty trends are the easiest and least commitment demanding of all trends. It’s just you and your mirror, AND if it looks good you’ll take it out. While I tend to use the same makeup look, I do play around with details and subtleties and I loooove experimenting with lipsticks especially.

If you spy on my browsing history you will 100% assume that I’m looking to get lip fillers. For the past few days I’ve watched every youtube video of girls getting lip fillers, only one out of which decided to get them dissolved. I’ve read articles, blogposts of lovers and haters of this lip filler beauty trend. Why? No, I am not getting them. Not that there’s anything wrong with it… I just don’t think I need them.

Before y’all hair gurus say the obvious on this one – like how late I am on the balayage being THE hair color trend right now – please know I know. You’re right though. Balayage has been an IT hair gimmick for quite a while. It was the the ombre trend and its death that actually brought balayage as a trend into spotlight for the past few years, and still going strong. So I guess I’m right too. Amen to that! (to all of us being right.)   What exactly is BALAYAGE? The word per se is French, and it’s actually a hair dye technique used // READ MORE…
