A couple of weeks ago, I had the privilege of being a bridesmaid in my friend, Catherine’s, wedding! It was my first time being a bridesmaid and I had an absolutely phenomenal time. I created this little tutorial for the other bridesmaids to use  while they did their own makeup on the big day, but I didn’t get it posted in time! Hah. So very helpful.

June Favorites

July 6, 2016

june-favoritesHalf the year has already come and gone and I thought it was high time to put together a monthly favorites video! I’ve really been focusing my energy on skincare this past month and the results are paying off. A gentle cleanser that smells like roses, a special cucumber toner, and an organic sunscreen are coming out on top this month, rounded out by some of my other favorite beauty and haircare bits. Enjoy my June favorites and stay tuned for more to come!

Drugstore Beauty: Glowy Summer Makeup Tutorial

June 8, 2016

IMG_9282Firstly, can I just say that I’ve been loving creating YouTube videos? I feel like it’s unlocked a kind of insatiable creativity in me that’s both exciting and totally scary. Before I started YouTube, it felt like the Wild West, with most bloggers staying firmly in their own “blogging” lane. Many YouTubers were also first and foremost video creators, with a blog existing as their second or third platform. I’m excited to be joining what seems like only a handful of content creator crossovers (tongue-twister!), creating both beautiful blog content and YouTube integration!

Anyway, onto the makeup! When I first had the idea for this tutorial, I wasn’t intending to use all drugstore products. But, as with most happy accidents, I happened to pull out all budget-friendly options, making this video an ALL-DRUGSTORE makeup tutorial!

One of my favorite things to do in the summer is mix my foundation with a liquid highlighter; it provides a sheerer coverage and a beautiful lit-from-within glow. Some of these products are new to me, but a lot are old favorites that I keep coming back to again and again! I can’t wait to wear this makeup on repeat all summer.

6-totally-overrated-beauty-productsI love trying out new beauty products – it’s probably one of my favorite things to do!

You know you can come to me for honest and unbiased product reviews, so here are the 6 products that I think are totally overrated.

Adele Makeup Tutorial

January 27, 2016

side-by-sideHooray! I’ve been dying to film this Adele Makeup Tutorial video since her new album was released and it’s finally here! Adele is my celebrity doppelganger and I frequently get stopped by strangers on the street making me aware of this fact. Here’s a fun little piece of Julianne’s Life Trivia – when I was a waitress in college, an entire family asked if they could take a photo with me (while I was working) because their kids were obsessed with Adele. Haha! It’s also fun to try to make yourself look like your celebrity doppelganger, just to see if it’s really true! Click on through to the video and let me know what you think, and who I should do a video of next (I get Meghan Trainor a lot, too… thoughts)?
