Honeybee Gardens Lipstick and Eyeshadow Palette

Honeybee Gardens. Doesn’t the name just make you feel happy? Born out of necessity starting with her husband’s aftershave, it all began in 1995 with Melissa J. Buckley whipping up elixirs in her kitchen. Now there’s a full range of natural cosmetics and skin/body care available online and in some health food stores.

Autumn Inspired Smokey Eye

The summer heat still lingers, but I’m daydreaming of fall and over-sized sweaters. Burnt oranges, cocoa, and plum shades dance through my head on the daily now, so until the cooler weather arrives, I’ve decided to test drive some fall inspired looks!

I usually use the … Continue reading Sooth Sayer & Rose Renewal+Frankincense

Antonym Baked Foundation (Powder)

My daily go-to powder for setting my foundation is, well…powder foundation. Hear me out. Over the years I’ve used a variety of powders to set my foundation and/or concealer-everything ranging from pressed powders, loose, mineral-based, color correcting…you name it.

I tried the ‘foundation’ on its own, but personally, I prefer more coverage … Continue reading Antonym Baked Foundation (Powder)

Mason Pearson Popular Brush

There is an ever-elusive unicorn of a hairbrush…a.k.a. the Mason Pearson*. It’s one of those special tools you hear about being used by celebrities and royalty, and you hope and dream that one day you too can have this special hairbrush. If Rapunzel had a hairbrush, this would be it. Lucky me, my sweet husband knew I had been pining for this hairbrush for ages … Continue reading Mason Pearson Popular Brush
