Since I’ve been working at a makeup counter, I’ve begun to dip my toes into higher end makeup. I picked up this mini tarte box set last week, and I’m absolutely loving it. Everything is very wearable, but can be easily built up for a more dramatic look. Even though the eyeshadow palate is made up of browns and creams, each shade has rosy undertones– which is PERFECT for green eyes. The mascara is quickly becoming my favorite; it doesn’t flake or lose its oomph throughout the day. I also really like the color of the lip paint (FOMO) although it does bleed so lip liner is a must. (You can buy the kit here or at your local Ulta).
I’ve also discovered the wonders of Monistat– as a makeup primer! Monistat is made up of dimethicone, which is molecularly similar to silicone, making it the perfect substitute. Plus, it’s WAY cheaper than most makeup primers. A 1.5 oz bottle usually only runs about $6, and you need less of it since the formula is thicker than most silicone based primers. I highly, highly, highly recommend it.
As some of you probably know, Hulu is now releasing and adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s novel The Handmaid’s Tale. I’ve been going through the novel and watching the series concurrently, and I’m obsessed.
Speaking of obsessed, I recently watched Homecoming, Hasan Minhaj’s comedy special on Netflix. Smart, witty, and hilarious, Minhaj is not only an incredibly intelligent comedian but a gifted story teller. He also spoke at this year’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner and thoroughly roasted the collective media and administration.
You know what goes well with sangria? These chicken tacos.
Craving fries? These parmesan encrusted zucchini fries are a healthier option. (Caution: be sure to drain them well and only lightly brush with egg– otherwise they will be soggy!)
