How I’m Transitioning My Beauty for Spring

Sometime over the last five years or so I learned the importance of switching up your beauty routine based on the season. Now, I definitely do not consider myself a skincare/makeup/hair expert, but I try a lot of products for my job and also I just really love playing around with my beauty stuff in general. So expert or not, I have picked up a thing or two over the…

Tips for Round-Brushing Your Hair
