These pallets are one of my absolute favorite purchases of all time. I’m not great with makeup, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want to use it. The palettes gave me a bit of variety to work with while I was learning, providing most of the tones I would ever need.
I like to put my eye patches on and literally continue living my life. They take about 15-20 minutes to dry completely, so you can do the dishes, vacuum or catch up on whatever you’re binging at the moment. The weird part about the eye patches is that I feel like I’m neglecting the rest of my face. I love to use my onyx roller to spread the leftover oils and end with a mini face massage.
While I was in Costa Rica with my homegirls, I sweated my entire face off while some of the other girls looks like they weren’t phased at all by the 11 zip lines we had just ridden through the jungle. “How do you keep you face like that?” we all started to ask, as we had gotten comfortable enough to risk our lives, so spring make up tips seemed like nothing at this point. “Setting spray,” she replied with a soft shrug 🤷🏽 and that’s where I started my search.
I came up on the cutest lipgloss set at Sephora. The Moschino collaboration features maker shaped, clear glass lipgloss tubes filled to the brim in a high pigment lipgloss. I find that lip gloss sets are the best way to push your boundaries and try new things. The set cost $34.99, but I use my homegirl’s email for 15% off during VIP days — I’ll be shopping her account so that we can make it up to 20% off! While I am always admittedly skeptical about colored lipsticks, I like to have the opportunity to play with them.
This lightweight cream from Kiehl’s is perfect for everyday use. This 1.7 fl. oz. lasted me almost 2 years because I used it intermittently. Once dry, you don’t feel the cream at all, making it perfect for using under make up.

You know what feels really good?!
Saying “no” to that event/extra project/person that you know drains your energy and time.
Finally giving yourself 10 minutes to put on a face mask.
Starting your work week with a fresh face & a fierce attitude ready to take on only the things YOU want to.

MONAT hair care products have helped me love my hair everyday. When I decided to start on the MONAT journey, I mostly wanted to support my homegirl. She’s sold different make up products before, but I don’t wear much make up. I just so happened to be in the market for a new hair care system. After she sent me samples, I saw growth almost immediately!
