Hello! I’m returning to my blog after some site renovations and personal time for growth, and I am so ready and excited to start sharing my art and my voice again and get back in touch with the community that loves beauty, fashion, and lifestyle content as much as I do.
And I’m also looking to share some more personal stories and offer a helpful glimpse into my life in regards to my experience at a university, my mental health journey, self-love and body positivity, and so much more. Humans are incredibly multifaceted and complicated and I want to dive deep and give people a different perspective and a look beyond the pre-meditated aesthetics and precisely edited photographs.
Since I’m getting back into my blog I’ll be playing around with the format of my posts and for now, the details of my makeup creations will be listed at the bottom of my writings.
Enjoy this first look and know that there are many more to come and be sure to follow my Instagram for more content!

This is a fairly simple and straightforward smokey eye that has a matte dusty grey-brown in the crease, a matte black blended up into the crease and across the lower lashline, and a glittering silver in the inner corner.
For the lips, I used a creamy dark purple-red and dabbed an iridescent blue highlighter over the center of each lip.
The glow on my face included a mix of my all-time favorite cheap highlight by e.l.f. that’s a beautiful natural white-silver with a pink undertone and the same iridescent blue highlighter by NYX I used on my lips.
