Simple Makeup Routine

   More often than not I like to keep my make up really really simple. A light tinted moisturizer, a swipe of mascara and lipstick  is really all I need on an every day basis.   I don’t need to talk more about the Glossier skin tint. It’s perfect in every way- it is lightweight […]

Skincare+Makeup+Science= Onomie

Best Everyday Eyeliners

When I put on eyeliner, I instantly feel pretty and put together. I can have everything else on my face, but if there’s no eyeliner, I’m not “dressed up”. I used to be loyal to the black pencil, but sometime in the past few years I took a step out of my comfort zone and […]
