Black Radiance True Complexion Soft Focus Finishing Powder Milk Chocolate Finish - One of 3 shades from Black Radiance. This one is the darkest shade and may be suited for people with red undertones.

Filling A Void: Black Radiance(@b_radiance) Soft Focus Finishing Powder

Disclosure: I received this product from Black Radiance. All opinions are my own.

Does Your Age Dictate What Trends You Try? #BuryMeMondays

What Does Self-Care Look Like For You? #BuryMeMondays

When it comes to self-care it’s easy to default to beauty rituals and since this is a beauty blog it’s probably even easier.  I want to put something else into the air about this though. Beauty things kind of lift me up(surprise, surprise), but that’s not everyone. If that’s not you, have you investigated what […]

Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation

Thumbs Up: NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation
