The Monday Edit, January 18, 2021: Since I love helping people and sharing knowledge, I decided to start putting the Monday Edit together. This is my way of sharing more of what personally interests me outside of the items I decide to swatch. On the 18th I shared articles about eating healthy and passive income. For videos, I shared a MUFE’s primer demo from Melissa Alatorre and another from a dermatologist sharing moisturizer recommendations for hyper-pigmentation.

The Monday Edit, January 25, 2021: On the 25th I talked you through some thoughts and research I did on lactic acid, salicylic acid, and niacinamide for my dry sensitive skin type. I shared a video of some “clean” beauty favorites from a new YouTuber I recently discovered. I also showed a couple videos showing the Becca Light Shifter collection.

Brands A-Z: I took some time to add a brand guide to the navigation menu at the top of my website. If you are interested in reviews or swatches for certain brands, you can check that page to find out if I have what you are looking for. There is also a search bar on the right hand side of the site that is always available if you prefer to search that way.

Thanks for Reading! I hope your new year is off to a good start.
