How To: Grow thicker, longer lashes overnight!

Hi guys!

Thanks for stopping by ūüôā Today’s post is on how I get thicker, longer lashes overnight and naturally! I have seen countless products all over the internet claiming to make your lashes thicker and longer with ridiculous ingredients and even more ridiculous prices…and yes I fell victim to a few of those products…Lashem¬†anyone? :-/

I have been using this beauty hack for a long time to get thicker eyebrows due to the unfortunate hot “Thin brow” look of the 90’s lol! I over plucked my brows back then and found that the hairs never seemed to grow back. I began reading about Castor Oil¬†, which is derived from the castor seed, and how it contains very high concentrations of a special fatty acid called ricinoleic acid. It has been used for centuries internally and externally for its many health benefits. It also contains Omega 6 and 9 fatty acids, Vitamin E and other moisturizing minerals. I thought to myself “What the heck?” it’s super cheap and natural so I started to slather Castor Oil¬†on my brows before I went to bed. I was literally AMAZED at how hair started growing back in one or two nights (I am not exaggerating guys). I found that I needed to pluck more often every time I used this phenomenal oil and decided to apply it nightly. After about a month of use, I noticed that my brows were remarkably thicker! I then began to apply it to my lashes and noticed almost immediate thickness overnight. Castor Oil is a Godsend for hair growth lol!

Before bed, I literally just use my finger to smooth a good amount of the oil over my brows and then rub some on the top of my lashes and lash line as well as underneath my lashes (like how you would apply mascara). Although you will see a difference overnight, this does require some commitment if you want to get the maximum benefit of the oil. I have made this a nightly routine and now it’s just habit before bed. The best way to see the difference in your lashes is if you put mascara on the day before you start…take a picture…then the following morning when you do your makeup, apply your mascara again and see the magic! It’s no joke!

The exact product I use is Home Health Cold Pressed Castor Oil which is only $12 for 32oz and literally has lasted me at least 2 years or even longer lol

Since we are on the topic of lashes, I will also share with you my FAVOURITE mascara…the Almay One Coat Mega Volume.¬†This very underrated mascara combined with the castor oil application nightly is life changing. You can find both of these products at the links I provided or at your local drugstore. Let me know if you are going to try this awesome beauty hack!

Wishing you beautiful, lush brows and lashes always

Everything SUNSCREEN!

(Photo above taken by me in French Polynesia)

Hi beauties!

Today’s post is ALL about SUNSCREEN! I’ve been meaning to write a post on sunscreen for a while now and with warmer weather just around the corner, this is the perfect time! I also get quite a few questions about sunscreen…This topic might sound pretty simple but it’s actually not LOL There are so many different types of sunscreens and ingredients out there and it’s important to know what products are actually effective at blocking those damaging UV rays.

Okay so I have a serious confession to make…I used to be a major sun worshipper :-O Being born and raised in the beach cities in sunny Los Angeles, it just felt normal. My grandmother actually TAUGHT me how to tan and lay out at the beach when I was just 7 or 8 years old (crazy and horrible I know). It became a habit. I NEVER wore sunscreen, I used to live in my swim suit and my skin was ALWAYS burned/tan. I actually thought that I had darker skin than I do naturally (I’m actually SUPER white)! I used tanning beds for years and years because being tan made me feel good! Unfortunately all of that sun tanning caught up with me and I developed a cancerous lesion on my leg. I had it removed and luckily it was just at the beginning stages. This was a SERIOUS wake up call for me. I began to study about UV rays and learned just how damaging they are to the skin and to the body. I kick myself thinking about all of the skin damage I brought on to myself…but hey we all make mistakes.

Although I made some not so smart choices in my younger years…the good news is that some sun damage is reversible with light and laser procedures and further damage can be prevented by using sunscreen and taking other precautionary methods.

There are TWO types of sunscreen that you can buy in stores:

Chemical Sunscreen: Products that absorb UV rays and prevent them from penetrating into the skin such as PABA and Oxybenzone

Physical or “Mineral” Sunscreen: Products that use UV filters that reflect, scatter and block the sun’s rays such as Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide

Research has shown that some chemical sunscreens cause allergic reactions, hormonal issues and other skin sensitivities. A good physical or “mineral” sunscreen with UV filters is the recommended choice as it sits on top of the skin and causes the least amount of irritation while protecting from both UVA and UVB rays. This is why you will find that most sunscreen for babies are physical ones as it provides the most protection and is the least irritating. It is still important to check with your dermatologist or skin expert to see which sunscreen is best for your lifestyle.

I have tried maaaaany sunscreens but when I tested ¬†the La Roche-Posay Anthelios mineral tinted SPF 50 I never looked back. I know this brand’s price point is a little steep BUT…It is a¬†100% physical “mineral” sunscreen with antioxidants to protect from environmental damage associated with atmospheric skin aging. It’s filled with good for skin ingredients, is lightly tinted, fast absorbing, non greasy, with ultra-light texture and a matte finish. It is perfect as a first step before makeup. The universal tint matches most skin tones and provides a natural glow. On days I want to go make-up free, I just put this on and it gives my skin such a beautiful, glowy, natural look with just the right amount of coverage. I have tried tinted sunscreens that have turned me orange or the tint was off, but with this sunscreen the color blends into the skin seamlessly. If you aren’t a fan of tint they also have the Anthelios mineral SPF 60 which is basically the same product but colorless….I use this one for my neck and chest so that I don’t transfer color onto my clothes.

If you prefer an easy one step foundation, moisturizing type of sunscreen (think all in one moisturizer, primer, foundation AND sunscreen) then the La Roche-Posay Mineral Sunscreen Tinted Primer is your best bet! This one is also pretty awesome. If you are looking for a cheaper alternative to the anthelios, the Neutrogena Sheer SPF 50 is a great option!

On days I want even more coverage, I use the IT cosmetics full coverage CC cream SPF 50 over top to ensure that I am fully protected. This combination is amazing and gives such a beautiful, hydrated, glowy look to the skin which we are all so desperately after…right? ūüėĬ†It’s important to know that just because some make-up products have SPF in them does not mean that you should skip your sunscreen. Sunscreen is always number one then the¬†SPF in makeup is just an added bonus. According to directions, you are supposed to re-apply sunscreen every few hours if you are out in the sun…the BEST way I have found to do this without ruining my makeup is dust a translucent sunscreen powder on my face to keep everything looking fresh while protecting at the same time. The brand Colorescience has got this down to a T. I’m obsessed with this product!

All Products mentioned:

La Roche-Posay Anthelios mineral tinted SPF 50

La Roche-Posay Anthelios mineral SPF 60

La Roche-Posay Mineral Sunscreen Tinted Primer

Neutrogena Sheer SPF 50

IT cosmetics full coverage CC cream SPF 50

Colorescience Sunforgettable Setting Powder

I hope this post has brought you some clarity about sunscreen! What brand/type of sunscreen do you wear currently? Comment below! Wishing you happy, healthy, glowing skin always!

The ONLY eyeshadow brush you need!

Hi beauty! 

Thanks for stopping by! Today I’ll be talking about one eyeshadow brush I use on the daily to create all of my makeup looks. This works for day or night time looks! I know that when it comes to brushes, there are SO many options out there and it can be very confusing.

The ONLY brush I use for my crease and entire eye area from lid to brow is the Morphe M441 blending brush¬†which runs for about $6 on I used to use the Mac 217 blending brush which goes for $30! until I came across the Morphe. This brush is PHENOMENAL! I am not kidding. If I could only choose one eyeshadow brush for the rest of my life, it would be this one. It has lasted me years, doesn’t shed at all and still works beautifully. It blends shadow so easily and can be used in the crease or all over from the lid up to the brow bone. I use this brush every single day to dust a light bronzer over my lids for a little color or I will use it in my crease for evening looks.


The second brush is optional because you can actually use your finger for your eyelids…but I use a flat brush such as this one¬†or the one pictured above and below, to pack color on my lids such as a shimmer or if I want to use a different color than what I used for my crease. As I said, this brush is not a necessity and I usually use my finger…but having said that, it can be useful if you want to pack a LOT of color on for a dramatic look, or if you want precision for a cut crease with concealer and shadow.

Beauty Tip: To create the perfect eyeshadow look, take the Morphe 441 blending brush and dust a light color or¬†bronzer into your crease and then with your finger or a flat brush, pack on shimmer or a different color on the lid. Blend the outer edges, add some mascara and you’re done!

DIY How to get whiter brighter teeth at home!

Hey beauties!

Today’s post is on how I get my teeth whiter and brighter naturally at home! I get a lot of questions on how I keep my teeth white and here is your answer!


If you want the fastest, cheapest way to whiten your teeth then you can use Plus White 5 Minute Speed Whitening Gel

I’ve been using this gel for years and it is SO effective. It’s also ridiculously cheap and you only leave it on for 5 minutes! It’s perfect for me since I don’t have a ton of time to spend on teeth whitening with a toddler on the loose!

All I do is squeeze the gel on a Q-tip and apply it to my top and bottom teeth. I leave it on for 5 min and then rinse with cold water as well as brush my teeth afterwards. That’s it! If I feel like I need to whiten more then I will do this once a day for a few days and then when I’ve reached my desired whiteness I’ll do it just once a month or so for maintenance.

If you want a more natural approach to whitening then here are two alternatives… Depending on what I have on hand at the time, I switch between the two.

  1. Baking Soda and lemon juice mix
  2. Coconut Oil and Turmeric

Baking Soda and Lemon juice mix

This combination really whitens and cleans BUT it can be corrosive/damaging to the tooth enamel so I only recommend this every once in a while to freshen up. Basically you take a spoon of baking soda and squeeze in some lemon. The mixture will bubble up then you can take a tooth brush and brush your teeth lightly and rinse.

Coconut Oil and Turmeric mix



Have you heard the term “Oil pulling” ? Well this is exactly what the coconut oil does when you leave it in your mouth. Not only does it draw out toxins, but it whitens your teeth too!

For this mixture, you will need a spoonful of coconut oil and a pinch of turmeric…just mix the two together and brush your teeth with it. You will want to leave the mixture on your teeth for 5-10 minutes then rinse and brush with your regular toothpaste. This mixture might stain your hands but not your teeth! There are a ton of health benefits of both ingredients in this mix which make it the ideal natural choice for teeth whitening….you can also do it as often as you like without worrying about damaging your teeth ūüôā

I personally prefer Plus White simply because it is safe, fast, effective, and cheap! You can purchase it here.

I hope this post helped, let me know what you use to whiten your teeth!

Happy Whitening!

How to get smooth, acne and blackhead-free skin naturally!

Hello loves!

Today’s post is a beauty tip (or hack!) on how to exfoliate your face or body for smooth, acne and blackhead-free skin naturally!

There are SOOO many exfoliating products out there and for such ridiculous prices! The last sample I received of an exfoliating product had ingredients listed that I couldn’t even pronounce. Why bother spending a ton of money, when you can get the same if not better benefit of a natural product that is most likely right in your pantry (and only $2!)

Now this one might come to you a surprise…(or not)…but you likely have this product sitting in your fridge to keep smells at bay lol

Arm-Hammer-Pure-Baking-SodaAnd TA-DA! Here is the magic product….Baking soda! Now HOW does this product keep your face smooth, exfoliated and acne-free you ask?

  • Baking soda dries up acne and is a natural antibiotic that heals the skin. Its long term benefits include fading acne scars and speed¬†the healing of acne damage.
  • Baking soda can help remove blackheads. When left on your nose (like a mask) for a few minutes, it loosens the tough skin so that you can easily extract the blackheads with a tissue….most of the time it just does the trick after I wash it off!
  • Baking soda keeps oily skin at bay and prevents pores from clogging up. It provides a beautiful smooth canvas for makeup application.

I usually mix a small amount into my daily face wash but you may not need to use it every day. My skin is quite oily and I do wear a lot of makeup, so I need to exfoliate often.

If you have never tried this before, or if you do not regularly exfoliate…complete a patch test in a small area first to ensure you don’t have any reactions. If you do not have a reaction then you can mix a tiny amount (about the size of a pea) of baking soda in to your face wash no more than 2 times a week.¬†

It is important not to leave the baking soda on your skin for too long. I try to stay away from “Baking soda masks” as it can irritate your face due to the pH and acidity of the product. You can get some for cheap here!

There are so many other uses for baking soda as well…you can add it to shampoo to keep flakes or dandruff away and to exfoliate product build up on the scalp….you can add it to your toothpaste to whiten your teeth (not often though!) I use it to exfoliate and soften my nails and cuticles… It’s an all around great product ūüôā

What types of exfoliating products do you use? Have you ever thought of using baking soda? Try it out and let me know your thoughts! ūüôā

My Beauty Secret For Natural Glowing Skin

Hey lovelies!

I am giving away my #1 beauty secret…yup…I love you that much ;D

I’ve been planning to write this post for a loooooong time, so here we go!

For the past three-four years, I have been using a miracle essential oil/water¬†that is SO good for the skin and super inexpensive to buy…




Pure Organic Rosehip seed oil  which is only $6! 

and I LOVE Mario Badescu’s rosewater spray¬†which is $7

The benefits of Rosehip seed oil and rose water on the skin are incredible and I would recommend it to anyone and everyone:)

I use the pure rosehip seed oil as a moisturizer in the morning before makeup application and in the evening before bed. You can also mix a 1-2 drops of the oil into your foundation to give you a beautiful, youthful, glow from within look. NO, this will not make your skin oily! I have oily-combo skin and this does not make me greasy or shiny. You can try with one drop at first to see how you like it. I also use this as an eye makeup remover or on any (healed) cuts/scars I might have.

Rosehip Seed Oil Facts:

  • Extracted from the seeds of a native rose plant which grows wild in Chile
  • Naturally contains vitamin A, C, & E (all wonderful anti-aging essentials)
  • High in essential fatty acids
  • Was used by Ancient Egyptians, Mayans and Native Americans for its healing properties

Benefits of Pure Organic Rosehip seed oil:

  • Corrects UV damage from the sun
  • Naturally tones the skin
  • Minimize appearance of wrinkles
  • Prevents scarring and stretch marks
  • Reduce fine lines
  • Rejuvenates skin cells
  • Dramatically improves skin moisture levels
  • Reduces stress naturally!
  • leaves the skin looking radiant and with a healthy glow

Now…the Rosewater Spray…

I mist the rosewater all over my face before makeup application, and spray on to my beauty blender to blend out my concealer and foundation. I¬†spray the rosewater on eyeshadow and highlighter brushes before dipping in the product, to give a more pigmented, brighter look. I will also spritz it all over my face after makeup application to set and remove any powdery residue…as well as spraying it all over for an all natural beautiful smelling fragrance!

Benefits of Organic Rosewater Spray

  • Tones and softens delicate skin
  • Relieves stress
  • Improves circulation
  • Lessens acne
  • Help prevent wrinkles
  • Help maintain youthful glow
  • Awakens the senses
  • Brightens complexion
  • Cleanses pores
  • Uplifts mood
  • Tightens pores

And THIS my friends, is why I use Rosehip seed oil and Rose water for EVERYthing. Try it out for yourself and let me know how you like it!

The exact products I use are here and here. 

I wish you all happiness and beautiful glowing skin…always! ‚̧

Strobing and Arabic eye cut crease!

Hi beauties!!

I have been on a roll this week with makeup looks…YAY! I am definitely trying to keep these looks coming for you all, but sometimes it’s hard to think of ideas. It’s been pretty rainy in Vancouver and yesterday’s look was definitely inspired by the weather!!

I’ve been asked a few times about what “Strobing” is and it is basically just highlighting without the contour. This is the thing to do for fall and winter when your summer tan is fading. It’s perfect if you’re pale and don’t want to look too bronzed up but still glowy. You can apply a little bronzer if you wish but strobing will give you a light natural contour on it’s own. I personally add a bit of contour on myself as the rest of my body is naturally a yellowish/golden color.

It’s been a while since I have filmed a video and have been thinking about filming one on baking/strobing…what do you guys think?? :O) ¬†Here is the look I created yesterday



So basically, the super highlighter areas (cheek bones, bridge of nose, inner corner of eyes, under eyes, lips and chin) are what you would call “strobing” like a strobe ball lol

Make-up Details!

  • Ginzing eye cream and face moisturizer‚Ķsmells like oranges so yummy¬†here¬†and¬†here
  • Dr Brandt Pore no more primer‚Ķinstantly mattifies and shrinks pores¬†here
  • Loreal Visible Lift foundation…flawless gorgeous coverage, photographs beautifully¬†here¬†Unfortunately the one that I have has been discontinued (I stocked up on my last LA trip) but here is the alternative product they offer.
  • Nars creamy concealer in ‚ÄúCustard‚ÄĚ here and Mac Prep and prime highlighter¬†here¬†blended with damp beauty blender¬†(You can use either¬†but the Mac prep and prime gives more of a brightened, highlighted effect)
  • Marcelle loose setting powder to set everything, gives a gorgeous, flawless smooth look¬†here
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills contour kit to contour hollow of cheek bones¬†here
  • BHCosmetics/Carli Bybel pallete golden highlighter on cheek bones, tip of nose, lips (will be back in stock soon!) here¬†Some alternative highlighters I am obsessed with and that are just as beautiful are here and here
  • Eyeshadows are also from the Carli Bybel palette
  • Cut Crease line made with Smashbox black gel liner but you can use any gel liner, black eyeliner or eyeshadow with an angled brush.
  • Lancome Hypnose Drama mascara (My¬†go to all time fave) here
  • Velour Lashes/Carli Bybel ‚ÄúCarlilash‚Ä̬†here
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills lip gloss in “Undressed” over top highlighted lips here

It’s fall <3

Helloooo my lovely beautiful people!!

Thank you for stopping by! It is officially fall in Vancouver and I couldn’t be happier! Growing up in LA, I never experienced seasons and only knew heat and sunshine all year round. Obviously that isn’t a bad thing…I grew up on the beach and loved every minute of it. I was a sun worshipper (PS don’t be one, I know first hand that there are consequences :() BUT The change from summer to fall still gets me every time!! It’s so strange when it gets cold and rainy all of a sudden…I’m like whatttt is going on?!?! haha ūüėÄ It did take me about 4 years to get used to the weather and to really learn to love the rain…but I am happy to say that I am officially a Vancouverite and absolutely love the rainy, gloomy weather:D

On that note, I’ve realized that moving to a new place really does test you and it changes you as a person…getting out of your comfort zone is important…it’s how we learn more about ourselves, who we are as people¬†and¬†all the things we are capable of doing, and being. It could be anything, such as learning a new language, taking the bus, going back to school, or picking up a new hobby. I highly recommend you lovelies get out of your comfort zone…even for a day. You’ll be shocked at what you find out about yourself;)

Eliminate Hormonal Acne Naturally!!! (For women)

Hello my beauties! I am actually VERY excited to write a blog post/review on this and have been wanting to do it for a while! Of course, I wanted to wait a few months to see if results were consistent and the product actually works…and let me tell you…it is absolutely AMAZING!

  • Before I start, I want to clearly state that I was not sponsored in any way to write about this product. This worked for me and I simply felt compelled to write a review in the hopes of helping other women who have been¬†battling hormonal acne

I have had hormonal acne for as long as I can remember. It started around the age of 20 and continued on until I started using¬†ESTROsmart by Lorna Vanderhaughe at the age of 28.¬†I can’t tell you how many times I cried over the horrific breakouts and cystic acne that just wouldn’t go away. I tried every single cream, pill, serum, face wash, spot treatment to washing my makeup brushes every other day, switching makeup products to even trying birth control in hopes of eliminating¬†the acne. NOTHING worked. I could never go out anywhere without makeup on and it was so frustrating. I¬†just kept packing on the foundation and powders¬†which in return clogged my pores and made things worse! Many people may be unaware, but severe acne can actually cause¬†low self-esteem,¬†depression, and social isolation!

I discovered ESTROsmart at the Vancouver Health Fair three months ago and have been taking it ever since. It took about three weeks before I started seeing actual results. After two months of consistently taking ESTROsmart, my acne completely disappeared, I have no more PMS symptoms or mood swings and no menstrual cramps. My skin has been clear including during that time of the month when acne is worse! This product has literally changed my life, increased my self esteem and has made that time of the month effortless.


The great thing about ESTROsmart is that not only does it help balance hormones and eliminate acne naturally, it also has some serious anti-cancer benefits:

  • Maintains healthy estrogen-to-progesterone balance
  • Protects and treats your fibrocystic breasts
  • Detoxifies toxic estrogens from plastics, pesticides, cosmetics and more
  • Halts abnormal cell growth, including breast lumps, fibroids, cysts, endometriosis, and thick uterine lining for those with PCOS and ovarian cysts
  • Halts conversion of good estrogens (2-hydroxyestrone) to bad estrogens (16-hydroxyestrone)
  • Eliminates PMS and makes periods effortless
  • Maintains healthy PAP smears


  • Calcium D-Glucarate:¬†is a powerful detoxifier of excess and toxic estrogens.
  • Indole-3-Carbinol:¬†is an anti-cancer plant nutrient found in cruciferous vegetables. Research has shown that I3C helps to break down cancer-causing estrogens into non-toxic forms. I3C maintains a healthy cervix, protects against HPV cervical lesions and controls abnormal cell growth found in those with uterine fibroids, endometriosis, ovarian cysts and breast lumps.
  • Green Tea Extract:¬†contains polyphenols, catechins and flavonoids shown to be protective against estrogen-related cancers.
  • Turmeric:¬†is the yellow pigment of turmeric. It is a powerful anti-inflammatory and it works to inhibit all stages of cancer formation: initiation, promotion and progression.It also protects against inflammatory calcium loss from our bones and aids digestion.
  • Diindolymethane¬†(DIM):¬†helps to break down cancer-causing estrogens into non-toxic forms. DIM is one of the products created by the breakdown of I3C.
  • Rosemary Leaf Extract:¬†a potent antioxidant, protects cells from cancer-causing agents, inhibits the growth of cancer cells and helps to detoxify toxic estrogens.
  • Sulforaphane¬†(from BroccoPhane broccoli sprout extract) has been shown to stimulate the body’s production of detoxification enzymes that eliminate environmental estrogens. Sulforaphane is a powerful antioxidant and anti-cancer agent that also stops brown spots on the skin.

The price is a bit steep at $42¬†on Amazon and trust me I was skeptical at first as well….but I can’t rave about this product enough. It is for any woman who wants to balance hormones naturally without having to be on birth control. ESTROsmart can be found in any nutrition store in Canada. For my readers who are outside of Canada, you can purchase this on Amazon here. I sincerely hope this helps some of you ladies out there who are battling with hormonal acne. I definitely feel your pain!!!
