If you’re an avid makeup junkie, I think you’d agree with me when I say that this product needs no introduction. The Tarte Shape Tape Concealer has taken the makeup community by storm for the last few months due to its full coverage and creamy formula. Despite its popularity, it’s still only available through the Tarte website (for Canadians), so it’s not particularly accessible. Luckily, Tarte had a promotion where they were offering free shipping on all orders. I jumped at the chance to finally get my hands on this extremely hyped up product. What are my thoughts?

I’ve been keeping a few moisturizers in rotation to help achieve this, so if you’d like to learn more about what I’m currently using to keep my combination skin in check this summer, please keep reading.

Summer Hair Care Tips for Naturally Wavy Hair

Hair care is one of those things that I don’t really mention much on my blog, mainly because I really struggle to make my hair look decent. Over the years, my hair has gone through some significant damage. Only recently did I decide that I should just leave it the way it is in order to give it a well deserved break. I still have a hard time figuring out how to make my hair look as “perfect” as possible, however I just find that it takes a lot of effort to keep hair (my hair, especially) prim and proper 24/7. In short, I’m always on the hunt for the best way to make my hair look good with minimal damage, and most importantly, minimal effort.

After years and years, I think I finally got a good routine going for me all thanks to some products I recently discovered. If you’ve got naturally wavy hair and you’re all about the frizz-free fuss-free hair care life, then please keep reading to find out what has been working for me!
