What We Need To Teach Our Moms About Beauty

There are literally a million things that we can learn from our moms, (no really but how do you fold a fitted sheet?), but the new-age of makeup is what our moms can learn from us. What is it about this generation that’s different then past generations? Is it that we are surrounded by “beautiful” people of every skin tone? Is it the resentment that we spent our entire lives under an umbrella on the beach while our non-brown friends played volleyball in the sand? Is it that we are FINALLY…

WHAT TO DO WITH $150 AT SEPHORA: FACE

There are so many different combinations when it comes to your face, but at it’s core you need the basics: primer, foundation, concealer, highlighter, bronzer and blush.

Brilliant Hacks To Do Every Day For Better Skin

I love writing posts that I love to read, and one of the things that’s been top of mind right now for me is skincare.

The Worst Thing I’ve Ever Done for Beauty

The Worst Thing I’ve Ever Done for Beauty

When I was younger, I – like many South Asian women – realized that with my darker complexion came the curse of dark hair. I wanted to shave my legs for gym class and even my arms, but my mom insisted that I wait until I was older to get a wax. Maybe I was ahead of the whole “Millennial Instant Gratification” thing – but waiting months to wax was not my jam. She tried her hardest to convince me that my hair would grow back like a man’s sharp, coarse, and darker – but I didn’t care. I hated the dark hair and much to do the dismay of my mom, I…

4 Winter Nail Colors That Are IT Girl Approved

4 Winter Nail Colors That Are IT Girl Approved

I’m guilty of one of the cardinal breaches of getting your nails done. The sin of being basic and getting the same shade every – single – damn – time. Like clockwork, when the weather changes, I suddenly develop courage and try to mix it up. Here is what my nail salon experience looks like monthly. 

I call to make an appointment and inevitably show up 15 minutes late.

I immediately turn to the wall and pick a statement color and mosey my way to the lady declaring that “I’m ready!” She confirmed, “Did you pick your color?”, “Sure did!” – I respond as I innocently blink my eyes as I walk past client numbers 2-5 “Ha! Beat You! I say (in my mind) with an evil laugh”

The next 45 minutes are grueling torture because I’m covered in foil like a…

6 BEST NAIL COLORS FOR EVERY SEASON

If you are anything like me, going to the nail salon is anything but relaxing. I’m always running late and deathly afraid that I will smudge my pedi before I leave the salon. When I finally make it into the salon I’m overwhelmed by the options. How are there so many colors that look exactly the same! After years of practice, I’ve finally narrowed it down to the 6 neutral shades that I always wear. By popular request, I’m finally putting together my guide on the best nail polishes for every season.
