How to Hide Your Undergarments!

Commando Mini Cami Slip, True Nude, Small/Medium

Do you have pieces in your closet that go unworn because it’s too see-through or because you wouldn’t dare expose your bra or panty line? This is a topic that isn’t too often covered and I was truly inspired because I too face many of these issues all the time!

There are so many ways we can conceal our undergarments so I felt it was best to demonstrate in a video. I tried to pack in as much information as I possibly could so I hope you enjoy!

You may notice that my blog has received a bit of a facelift :) Do check out the mobile version as well and let me know what you think!

Meltproof Makeup Look & Tips

Having oily skin has its pros and cons. What about when paired with wearing makeup in the scorching heat? I know, I know..con to the max. Don’t fret guys, shine and sweat are completely normal. Even actors and actresses have to get blotted very frequently on set because they’re human too. We can, however, take certain steps to keep our look from melting off of our faces faster!

In this video you will also see me use the It Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Vol. 1 Matte Luxe Transforming Eye Shadow Palette (talk about a mouthful!) on my eyes. I have been wearing this palette almost everyday as of late!

 

 Check out the video and information section for tips and a full list of products that I recommend to help you combat the heat!

Sigma recently launched their Born to Be collection and the music video of Katy Perry’s ‘Dark Horse’ recently released so I thought let’s do an inspired look! I’ve been obsessed with this song for some time now.

Sigma Mall of America Meet & Greet

This was the first time I had a store hosted meet and greet and I have to thank Sigma and those of you who came out for making it so special!

Signing headshots and seeing my face all over the store was certainly a foreign feeling. It was a bit overwhelming at first but as I started meeting you guys all I could feel was grateful and humbled. I am beyond fortunate to be able to dedicate a trip to meeting you all!

Zombie Look! with MonsterBuster Entertainment

So I may have expressed this numerous times already but I love Halloween and anything horror! This year for Halloween I wanted to do it bigger and better than ever before. I of course needed help (a lot of it!) to reach my goal. :)

I have been anticipating this day and am now so excited to share this finished product with you guys! And this is only the first of ’em! I have to give Torey Haas a special shout out for collaborating with me on this project! He leads such an amazing team with everyone at MonsterBuster Entertainment and without everyone’s efforts this would not have been possible! I’m so excited and humbled by this experience. Please check out the first video: Zombie Makeup!
