My Favorite IG Account Shout-Outs

What’s up, everybody? And a happy Monday! (Well…as happy as a Monday can be, right?) I have not been able to fully wake myself up today, so I am running on autopilot until tomorrow. Since I lack anything drafted up, at the moment, I decided today would be good for an easy post to give you guys some recommendations of just a few creative beauty and fashion social media accounts to check out that I really love.

Get My Glow On? (Sometimes)

Oh, highlighter. So many beauty influencers and makeup novices alike just love covering themselves in the stuff and looking like they just bathed in canola oil. Throughout my time doing makeup, no product has ever made me feel as uncertain about it as highlighter.

Modeling, Makeup, and Mental Health Awareness Month

Though a shroud of stigmas surround them, mental illnesses are probably some of the most difficult disorders to try and deal with. It’s sad when people who don’t understand try to make it sound so easy to handle. On the other end, it’s also a bit exaggerated when people who suffer from disorders like depression and anxiety swear they are unable to at least try to keep it from ruining their life in any way.

Despite what people may think, things really do get better eventually.

I lack the need to lay my whole life out on the table, but I dealt with some tough events in the past up until this point. (Hell, some days the littlest things will still flare me up for a few minutes.) People died, a parent said goodbye (not forever, but had to leave the house), and I wrestled self-loathing the size of a brontosaurus. And I also admit that, up until almost two years, I failed to get myself the sufficient help I needed; it felt easier to sit in bed, mope, and live in ignorance. However, it’s never too late, and I have put in the work necessary ever since on a daily basis, and makeup and fashion were part of that work.

Wet N Wild MegaLast Liquid Catsuit Lipstick – Does it ‘MegaLast’?

People familiar with the beauty world know how liquid lipsticks blew up over the past year or two. Not only is there competition in the mid- to high-range brands, but even drugstore formulas are competing with the best. (This tends to make shopping for one much harder than it needs to be, at times.) So, how do they all measure up to each other?

This week, let’s break it down and take a look at Wet n Wild’s newest launch, their MegaLast Liquid Catsuit Lipstick.

Makeup Playlist Faves #4 – “I Want a Woman” by RATT


Oh, man. I love me some Ratt ‘n’ roll, especially when it’s vanity time. Picking two 80’s songs in a row was totally unintentional, but that music is just the best when I plan on looking sharp and fierce.

RATT is one of those bands I happened to discover on my own when I was about fourteen. “Round and Round” was on one of those old Monsters of Rock compilation CD’s, and I loved their sound ever since. They have such a bluesy, yet edgy sound to them which stands out among the other bands of the decade people tend to think about first.

The whole Reach for the Sky album is probably my favorite album of theirs overall. The music is so memorable and well-written; I think even people not too fond of 80’s metal could at least respect the musicianship on it.

Thanks for checking out today’s track, and I’ll see you on Monday.
