I enjoy doing these first impressions because I love trying out new products. I recently saw this primer while I was shopping at Ulta so I thought I would try it out and let you all know what I thought. I go through phases where I use a face primer, but recently I’ve found that I’ve especially been in need of one. I find that my foundation has trouble lasting all day and my face ends up looking really shiny by the afternoon. This product claims to help with shine control, and after trying out this product and seeing the improvements in my skin, I feel as though this purchase was long overdue.

Well, if being a competitive figure skater for over 15 years has taught me anything, it’s how to choose makeup. I’ll admit I’m one of those girls who tries out every new makeup product on the market (with many facial-faux pas stories to boot). The result of my obsession? My gigantic orange makeup bag chock full of things I never wear (apparently full-on dark smoky eyes are not exactly the style for Catholic high school who knew?). I am happy to say, however, that I have come up with a system to handle my stuffed-to-the-brim orange bag.

I recently had my nails painted at a salon and was very disappointed when the next day I noticed that they were already starting to chip. Why pay all that money when it doesn’t even last, I thought to myself? I’ve gotten artificial nails before, but I began considering it gain after this mishap. My nails are in really ruff shape at the moment and I want something that is going to disguise them. But before I take any further steps, I wanted to make a pro and con list for getting artificial nails. I hear lots of rumors about how bad they are for your nails and health, so I want to make sure I’m making the right decision first. But which is better, gel or acrylic? Good thing I’m weighing the pros and cons of both!

But, I follow a few nail art related accounts on Instagram and it’s clear that simply painted nails aren’t cutting it anymore. So, I’ve made it my goal to branch out this summer and give into the current nail trends. What exactly are the nail trends for summer you may be asking? Check them out below!
