Note: This post is a paid partnership with Garnier USA and Her Campus Media. All thoughts are my own. Friends, I’m not one for beauty routines — I’m actually embarrassingly…
In case y’all didn’t know, I’m a total scaredy cat and hate commitment without A LOT of preparation, which is why it’s amazing that I somehow ended up with three tattoos. Even though I haven’t ever gotten permanent or semi-permanent treatments, I’ve always wondered about lash extensions — I hate how clumpy my mascara gets. When Lash Spa Studio in South Tampa invited me in, my response was heck yes.
I had a ton of questions — I hate how tired my eyes feel when I wear false eyelashes, so I needed my lash extensions to be gorgeous without feeling uncomfortable or inconvenient. Tallia from Lash Spa Studio assured me that I’d be in good hands, so I went in with an open mind and was super excited with the results.
My smile is one of the things I’ve never really been super self-conscious about — thanks to my mom and dad paying for braces when I was a little girl, I’m actually pretty keen on my teeth. (Hilariously, Vagner has a tooth gap and I think it’s the cutest thing in the world and kind of miss mine.)
Even though I love my smile, I’m always sipping drinks that have the potential my teeth. I can’t ever give up Diet Coke or coffee, and I’m not mad about it — but because I love dark-colored drinks, I’ve thought about teeth whitening for a while. I’m so excited to partner with Smile Brilliant for today’s post!
If you were obsessed with makeup as a child, I seriously envy you. I had the best upbringing, but my parents didn’t let me wear makeup pretty much at all. I finally decided to just start sneaking my own makeup once I had an allowance, but unfortunately, I had NO IDEA WHAT I WAS DOING, and it was obvious. I searched high and low for a picture of me wearing LIME GREEN eyeshadow as a teenager, but I must’ve deleted it from all social channels. Thankfully, I still have a reminder of how I used to wear my eyeshadow, which was from lid to brow. No blending needed (or so I told myself).
