Hi, my name is Jen I am 44 and live in Connecticut with my husband and 8 year old son. I am a stay-at-home Mom and full-time YouTuber with a degree in business with a focus in marketing. Before leaving work when my son was born, I was a commercial lender at a bank. I also worked at Sephora and Macy’s doing visual merchandising.
I have dry skin with some hyperpigmentation and fine lines. I love natural makeup looks but occasionally go outside my comfort zone a little bit. On my channel you’ll find lots of videos about drugstore makeup and drugstore dupes (those are my favorites to film!) but I also review high-end makeup as well. I hope you enjoy my channel and if you do, please don’t forget to SUBSCRIBE & leave me a comment!

    I just thought of an interesting idea for a future video (maybe)
    I see popular makeup brands like maybelline and L’Oréal..essence, ect. Come out with products that we never get to see or it takes a so long to make it to the states. I’d love to see someone buy the things from those brands and review them. For example I seen a foundation from maybelline that was like ooh I wanna try it, but it’s not available in the states or most countries that I am aware of. But it sounded so nice, especially for dry to combo dry skin. It would be so cool to see a full face or just a review on a bunch of items. Because I’d love to see if it’s worth getting or waiting for it. It’s also kind of sad that those brands don’t launch all their products across countries or at least major retailers.

    I think you're right about Make Up Forever being out there for "people who know, know" group. Make Up Forever hasn't really left my radar but I also watch some drag queens and Trixie Mattel mentions Make Up Forever all the time. It's a work horse for those in the entertainment biz.

    The Lorac palette is gorgeous on you! I used to always look forward to their Pro palette releases. Everything I tried was excellent quality!

    I have loved Laura Geller products for years since I found her on QVC in the late 90's. She is also a lovely woman and fun to watch doing makeovers.

    Wet & Wild burn-bronzer: Floral Majority is wonderful and should work for a decent range of skintones. Ive gone through 3, have 2 backups, a W&W regional broker told me they are not permanent.

    I loved this! There are 2 brands I like but nobody uses & that’s The Balm & Pixi Beauty. If you make more of these please include them! 🙃

    I love benefit for their boring makeup! They do extremely light makeup well, i love their blushes, but prefer the subtlest ones (bring back the matte peach georgia formula!!). I dont mind if people can tell im wearing makeup by color, but loathe visible particulate & benefit is fabulous for that. I dont buy directly from them tho, and am trying not to buy at all, because their limited shade range is bigoted, no way around it.

    One product I can’t live without is LA Girl lip liner in Keep it Spicy. I think it’s a dupe for the Mac lip liner. In fact, I like the LA Girl liner more. Love your videos.

    The Falsies Surreal mascara, is amazing. Volumenes and lengthening. I don't see many people talking about it.
