Oh my god I’m so delinquent with posting here I can’t even deal. To be fair, it’s been a hectic summer – travel, moving, terrible Boston weather which makes me hate life…yeah. But August is about half over so we’re aaaalmost there.
Today on Youtube I took a break from my regular 20-30 minutes of rambling chats and put together a tightly edited makeup look video. This is the general amount of product I’ve been wearing on my face lately as really, what’s the point when the weather is what it is. Can you tell I seriously dislike summer, at least here, yet?
Head over to YouTube to watch!

Awhile back I did a video on my channel titled “French Chic Minimal Makeup” – and if I could do it over again, it would be this look. The look in that previous video was a bit overdone, and I prefer how this one came out for achieving that vibe. I’ve been reading so much Into The Gloss lately that it’s made my impulse towards the more undone, effortless, minimal, European beauty look much MUCH stronger than it already was. Plus, the warmer months naturally call for less makeup. Thanks to my dedication towards implementing my medical intuitive changes, combined with my foray into gentle chemical skin exfoliators, and my skin is really happy with just sun protection/tinted moisturizer and a bit of concealer. I’d love to hear if you’re similarly vibing to minimal makeup, and how you go about achieving and effortless, yet still covetable look with that certain je ne sais quoi element. Watch the video over on Youtube, and don’t forget to subscribe <3
