Hello, beautiful! Ever since I can remember, I (Emma here!) have been obsessed with beauty tips, tricks, and secrets. I’ve been known to concoct my own at-home beauty experiments trying out home remedies like honey, brown sugar, and coconut oil to get shiny hair and glowing skin. And, I’m always looking to try the next hot new mascara, eyeliner, or blush – or makeup tutorial to try.

And, as a special thank you for stopping by, we’re giving away a FREE beauty gift to THREE lucky readers! Read on to find out more + enjoy!
