I fought the podcast train for a long time because I don’t enjoy audio books (I know, I know, I don’t know why I had that stuck in my head, but I did), and now I’m addicted in the best kind of ways. My friend Katherine finally convinced me to make the leap in October of last year and I haven’t looked back since. Below you’ll find a list of my favorites so far, as well as favorites from the amazing Caroline Kraddick [@carolinekraddick] that I plan on steadily working my way through (who also has her own podcast that you should check out, which I am also about to start: Caroline’s Obsessions).
***Buzzfeed Unsolved is not a podcast, but is one of my favorite YouTube series of all time and easily can be listened to as a podcast. However, my personal recommendation is to fire this baby up on the YouTube app on your TV and watch as normal. #Boogara #Shaniac
I adore makeup. I always have. I was the little girl that was begging her mom for “lip” and “eyeblash” from the moment that she could talk. I would hoard play makeup and organize it by color on the vanity in my room. You get the picture.
For me, makeup not only enhances my confidence in so many ways, but also has become my favorite hobby. From watching hours upon hours of videos from my favorite beauty YouTubers for the latest tips and products, to talking about and recommending products with my closest friends (and strangers), applying makeup soothes and energizes me. However, thankfully, both my technique and the quality of products in my collection have drastically improved since I started wearing makeup in the 6th grade to combat my rosacea, oily skin and, at the time, acne. While my acne has substantially subsided, (I do still have spots pop up multiple times a week), I do naturally gravitate towards more full coverage products to cover up my rosacea. Also, with the humid, Southern climate that I live in, I need my makeup to last as long as possible throughout a long work day. And, with that, let’s get into the makeup:
This single shadow will help you create the fastest eyeshadow look in the world. While it looks matte in the pan, it will start to get more and more satin as you get deeper into the shadow. You can use either your fingers or a crease brush to wash the color all over the lid.
