Must-Try: Jan Marini Skincare

OMG you guys! A blogger's nightmare just happened to me recently.  I had to re-shoot all photos I took from prior weeks because my Macbook Air (where everything was uploaded) got corrupted and my efforts to rescue that white screen of death unfortunately went futile! I had to preface today's post because it will potentially affect my blogging schedule in the coming weeks. I ended up buying a new iMac, totally unplanned, budget-wise. 

Now on with some good stuff. Who gets excited trying new skincare stuff? count this woman in! I think most of you will agree with me: the secret to flawless makeup starts with good skin because no matter what kind of makeup you use or application you employ, rough, bumpy, dull, patchy and dry skin will peek through. That's why I can't emphasize enough to invest on good products. It doesn't matter whether they're high-end or drugstore brand because at the end of the day, finding your holy grail is a labyrinth, trial and error for the most part. Thankfully, my combination and aging skin is in agreement with Jan Marini, a brand I have been meaning to try!

Texturized Beach Waves

It's one of those rare days. I took the sweetest time to curl and style my hair last weekend. For someone who's content with messy bun, an epiphany of sorts unfolded: twist, curl, spray, repeat. 'Ey looking human is fun!

Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick | Stepping Out & Girl Gang

As mentioned from my previous post, Smashbox Always On Matte quickly became a runner-up (close second to Anastasia) in my liquid lipstick category of sorts. So much so that I added two more shades to satisfy this inexplicable satiety for all things matte. Is the beloved formula consistent across the board? find out which one fell short!

Summer FOTD Feat. Georgie Beauty, Tom Ford Eye Color Quad Nude Dip, Smashbox Liquid Lipstick Stepping Out, Anastasia Glow Kit

Today's makeup is rather straightforward, neutral eyes and lips but I took it up a notch with the addition of Georgie Faux Lashes ($15 to $18 per pair). Sold in 13 styles, I received No.3 La Starlette, described as "shiny and voluminous with a flexible black band that creates flawless black eyeliner look".
