Five Fall Nail Polishes

It’s about that time of year to start transitioning everything to fall and I am READY for it. One of my favorite things to do to transition into the season is start switching up my nail color from bright pinks and oranges to more neutral, earthy tones. Here are five of my favorite polishes for the fall! Green: Essie Exposed– this polish is new to my collection and one of my faves! It’s a muted, greyish green. It is so pretty on any skin tone and gives you a little bit of color even in the cooler months. It transitions […]

Let’s Talk Lip Care

I’m all about having hydrated, soft, and glossy lips. 95% of the time I do my makeup for work and just throw a lip balm or clear gloss anyways, so I want it to be something good, not something I have to reapply 20 minutes later. I have two lip products to share with you guys today that are complete game changers for the everyday girl who’s not putting on a red liquid lip every day. I’ll start with the Kopari Lip Glossy. This stuff is awesome! It smells like you’re on a beach and gives you that super glossy, […]

First Glossier Experience

As most of you know last week I was in California for a little vacation! My dad’s entire side of the family and my brother and his girlfriend live all over LA so I try to get out there at least once a year to see everyone. This time I went during the week, so while family was working during the day I had a little bit of time to myself to explore LA. One of the things on my list was to shop around on Melrose because the Glossier store was there. Where Do I Even Begin?   When […]

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 […]

Madison Quinn Blog Turns One!

Its a blogiversary, y’all! Cred to Hayden for that one, but Madison Quinn Blog turns one year old today! 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! The Highs Blogging has easily been one of the best decisions I have made, for so many reasons. The first being that starting my blog was something I did entirely for myself. 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! They are more fun than pearls or diamond studs and I always say they “brighten up” my face… whatever that means. I just love how they subtly peek out from behind my hair and compliment any outfit! 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 […]

APARTMENT TOUR: Living Room

The long awaited Apartment Tour post! Well, the living room at least. I had so much fun decorating this great room with the living room and kitchen (kitchen portion coming soon). You’ll see there is still some stuff that needs work, specifically the entertainment center, but otherwise this room is probably the most complete! I love decorating with black and white and wood, which just so happens to be the finishes on our apartment came with. I also LOVE this room because it gets so much natural light! Almost everything is linked below, if you have any other questions feel free […]
