Full Brow Review

Full Brow came into my life at just the right time when my brows were needing a little more love than usual. I’m usually really low maintenance with my brows; I like to spoolie through them and I may use some brow gel if they’re being particularly unruly, but lately they have been looking really sparse and I wanted a little something more… enter: Full Brow. Full Brow is an Australian based cosmetic company focused on, you guessed it, brows! They sent me their Brow Powder in the shade “Natural Brown” as well as their Brow Wax to try out and review […]

Eyeshadow for Beginners

If you’re not someone who typically wears eyeshadow but wants to- look no further. When I worked at MAC I had SO many women come in looking for a few shadows to get them started that were easy to use. For the most part, there are about five colors that I think every person needs. Depending on your age, skin tone, and style, these colors may vary, but for the most part these will work for almost anyone! Where to buy shadows? I personally love Makeup Geek eyeshadows. They are great quality and the price is right. MAC has great […]

Well, technically my first post went live on June 30th, but June 26th was the day I purchased MadisonQuinn.Blog and committed to one year of blogging. What a year it’s been!

Of course I wanted to share my love for makeup and beauty with other women, but I really […]

My Everyday Jewelry

While my beauty routine is always changing, my accessories are not. I wanted to share with you guys my staple pieces of jewelry that I, without fail, wear every single day. Everything is linked at the bottom! Swarovski Disco ball earrings: I never skip a day of wearing these!

James Avery Stacking rings: Another that I do not miss a day of wearing. These […]

The $3 Hair Mask Worth Trying

Move over, Sephora! No need to spend a fortune on a hair mask when Aussie exists! (JK Sephora I still <3 you!) When I saw this hair mask was only $3 dollars, I’ll admit, I was hesitant. My haircare has always been dominantly drugstore products, but $3?! That sounds like a disaster in a bottle. Except for when it’s actually amazing! The Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Smooth Deep Conditioner has become a staple in my routine! While you’re in the shower, work this into your hair and let it soak in for 3 minutes. I skip conditioning entirely when I […]

Almost everything is linked below, if you have any other questions feel free […]

Powder Dip Nails: Everything You Need To Know

I am SO picky about my nails. One bump, scratch or chip in my manicure and that thing is good as gone so I can start over. Shellac? I will peel it off. A regular mani? I give it two days. Powder dip nails have changed the mani game for me and it will for you too! Here’s what you need to know: Yes, they are actually dipping your nails in powder! What they do is paint on what looks like clear polish and smells like glue that you’d get from those fake nail sets at the drug store. Then, […]

Laura Mercier Setting Powder (+ a dupe!)

When I buy new makeup I want to buy the fun stuff. A new eyeshadow palette, that bold lip color, but setting powders? Not so much. That was until I discovered the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder. This stuff, is a game changer. 1. The first way I use this powder is with a  damp beauty blender to set my under eye concealer. I don’t necessarily “bake” in this area, but I do use quite a bit of the powder and press it into the skin. No matter how much I use it never looks cakey! This powder also […]
