Part One: Y. Beauty’s Rut! (Help me!)

Hello my beauties!

I know, I know… it’s been awhile. Instead of giving some lame excuse about being extremely busy (which I have been), I want to be honest and admit that I have been in such a beauty rut! Any spare moment I have had to write a new post, I honestly couldn’t think of anything that truly felt worth writing about.

When I started this blog, my plan was never to have a blog just for the sake of having a blog. My mission objective was always to be completely honest and share with all of you what products and/or treatments I am truly loving. If I haven’t mentioned a product yet, it doesn’t necessarily mean I haven’t tried it. I will only write about things that worked for me or for my clients. With that said, there are times (which I am sure many of you have endured yourself) where my beauty routine just seems, “meh.” This just happens to be one of those times.

For weeks, I tried switching up products and testing new looks just to get some inspiration. Although it was fun, I still found that I had nothing worth writing about. Nothing stood out to me.

BUT THEN…. it hit me!

[Side Note: For some reason, most of my blog post ideas seem to come to me when I am in the shower!?]

I realized that instead of racking my brain to try and come up with inspiration and ideas, what I should be doing is racking all of YOUR brains! So, I am enlisting all of your help. I have come up with a list of products and treatments that I am on the hunt for and I want you all to give me your advice. Have you tried a waterline eyeliner that doesn’t move throughout the day? Please, tell me about it! Or is there a treatment that you recently had done (i.e. facial) and your results were amazing – I beg you, tell me about it!

This post will be a 2-part series. This week, I want you all to give me your product recommendations, advice, opinions, pretty much anything beauty-related that you are loving. Next week, I will share all of the answers I get and perhaps I will pick-up some suggested goodies between now and then to try out for myself.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it…

  1. Black waterline eyeliner that stays put all day!
  2. Perfume (I have my staples, but I am always looking for a new scent)
  3. Cleanser
  4. Moisturizer (I have sensitive, combination skin)
  5. Eye cream
  6. Lip chap
  7. Lipsticks, lip glosses, etc.
  8. Cuticle cream/care (my cuticles always seem to be dry no matter how much I moisturize my hands!)
  9. Treatments/Services: Facials, massages, masks, body scrubs, etc.
  10. Concealer (I love finding good quality concealers that work!)
  11. Foundation
  12. Beauty tools – makeup brushes, beauty sponges, hair accessories, etc.
  13. Anti-aging products
  14. Dark spot corrector
  15. Curly hair products
  16. Brush cleaners
  17. Eyeshadow palettes

Do you have any other beauty tips or finds? I want to hear about it! Either let me know in the comment section below or email me at with your answers.

I can’t wait to hear from you!

That’s Y!
