Glowing Beauty Favorites (From The Drugstore!)

Hey friends! The other day I posted a Boomerang of myself on Instagram after doing my makeup with a few new things I picked up from CVS + Target. I was honestly shocked at how blended and pretty my makeup looked! As you know Byron and I just moved from Texas to South Carolina! And boy oh boy is moving tough on the budget! So it’s safe to say I won’t be splurging at Sephora anytime soon! #ADULTING! However, every once and awhile I love grabbing a few special new items from the drugstore to try them out. I have to be honest I’ve been extremely impressed by drugstore beauty lately and find myself reaching for some of those beauty products more than my high-end products! Below are some of my holy-grail drugstore beauty items I’ve been using non-stop! I only recommend things I truly love so I hope you enjoy! (NONE of these items were gifted or sponsored! And each is linked by their name.)

Happy shopping ladies!

I have to warn you! I absolutely love to glow, so a lot of these products are to help you find a finish that makes you look like you’re glowing from within! If you’re into more of a matte finish, some of these products will still work for you! But as for me I love a dewy, glowy, “natural” glam!

Before anything we have to start with what’s underneath the makeup. I was one of those people who thought primer was a waste of money, time and effort. But as I got older my pores became a thing (who knew!) and so did the realization that my makeup faded throughout the day. I now can’t even think about applying makeup without primer. These are my favorites!

NYX Angel Veil Skin Perfecting Primer $16 This primer minimizes pores, is oil free and leaves skin looking flawless.

L’Oréal Magic LUMI Light Infusing Primer $13  This is my current favorite – it makes my skin look so healthy and helps my makeup stay on throughout the day!

Now, the FACE, HONEY! I love a good base. Glowing skin starts with skincare – so let me know in comments or on Instagram if you’d like me to share my favorite skin care! But for now lets take a look at what I’ve been using on my face as a base.

Maybelline FIT ME Dewy + Smooth Foundation in 230 Natural Buff $8

I love this foundation for a few reasons. One, the color is gorgeous on my skin and that’s hard to find especially with drugstore foundations. Two, it really does make my skin glow – not in a sweaty way but in a way that makes me feel like my makeup just looks like my skin. Three, it has SPF 18! Which I really appreciate since I’m trying to take better care of my skin + prevent sun damage!

L’Oréal Infallible Pr0-Glow Concealer in 02 Creamy Natural $10

This concealer is newer to my collection and I have to say it’s pretty impressive. I absolutely cannot stand dry under-eyes and I love that this concealer gives me full, blendable coverage with a light, bright glowing finish.

L’Oréal True Match LUMI Glow Amour, Glow Boosting Drops in 508 Golden Hour $15

I absolutely LOVE THESE! I use these glow boosting drops in two different ways. Some days I mix a drop or two in with my foundation when I have a little tan. They add a very subtle and pretty glow to my skin! I also use them on the highlights of my cheeks and the tip of my nose. I apply little drops and dab them with a beauty blender.

Next for Face I wanted to show you my favorite liquid contours and a few of my favorite brushes from the drugstore.

Maybelline Master Counter Crayon $9

This contour crayon is super easy, chubby and blendable.

NYX Sculpt and Highlight Face Duo $12

I reach for this almost everyday. It’s basically like contouring with a really light concealer and a really dark concealer. I love the formula and most of all I love the shades on my skin tone!

Real Techniques Expert Face Brush $9 

I love this brush for applying my foundation, blending my concealer and blending out my contour.

Elf Stipple Brush $3 

I can’t live without this brush, I use it for just about anything I need! A must have in your makeup bag.

Sonia Kashuk Highlighting Fan Brush $7 

I just picked up this brush from Target! It applies my highlight flawlessly. Speaking of highlight….

Let’s talk Bronzer, Highlight + Blush! Here are my current favorites!

Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso $8 Between the gorgeous color, glowy formula with specks of gold and skin-like finish this blush is perfection.

NYX Matte Bronzer in Medium $9  This NYX Bronzer is matte but not dusty, the color is deep and a little goes a long way so you get bang for your buck!

Maybelline Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter in Molten Gold $10  THE MOMENT YOU’VE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR! THIS is the drugstore highlight I was talking about in my IG Story last week! I got record-beating messages about this highlight and it became the origin of the purpose of this post! I can’t say enough good things about this highlight. It’s not chunky, glittery and powdery. It’s buildable, glowy and it lasts all day. One of the best drugstore buys I’ve ever made.

For mascara I think I found my very favorite – ever. Drugstore or high-end this trumps them all! First I like to prime my eye-lashes with L’Oréal Voluminous Base $8 and then I coat my lashes one or two times with my all-time favorite mascara L’Oréal Voluminous Lash Paradise $10I can’t suggest it enough!

Lastly, I have been loving this lipstick duo from Flower Beauty! Flower is Drew Barrymore’s

FLOWER Beauty Mix N’ Matte Lip Duo in Honey Nude $10 I love this lippie because it’s two in one! So if you’re in a glossy mood or a matte mood you have options at all times! I also love the quality, it truly feels like a high-end lipstick and lipgloss. I love that the matte lipstick isn’t dry and crusty but velvety and smooth. And the gloss ins’t glittery and uncomfortable but bright and juicy. I also don’t have to touch them up every two minutes which is nice! I want this duo in every color!


I hope you guys enjoyed this and try out some of these products! Please comment below your favorite drugstore beauty products! Also if there is a product you’d like for me to try and review for you let me know!

Love, Mariah! x

Timeless, My Favorite Perfumes

Fragrance is special. It can bring forgotten memories to life in a moment. It can remind you where you come from, who you knew, why you were there. My cousin-in-law Tara often changes her perfume but when she wears the perfume she wore when I first met her – it immediately brings me back to that day.

Perfume can bring you back to a feeling, a time, an era. It can also inspire you to go somewhere new, fresh, unknown. I have acquired quite the collection of perfume over the years and I’ve found some timeless favorites I’ll always purchase again. My little perfume vanity was one of the first things I set up in my new home. I hope you enjoy these favorites and comment below your favorite perfumes I’d love to try them! x

Subrosa Sel Vanille 

SPICE: An evocative blend of star anise, manuka honey mingled with white charcoal. 

I found this on a whim at Anthropologie during Christmas time. In the link above it says no longer available on Anthro’s website, but I have seen it at local stores and I snagged mine on sale! I hope it comes back around or that another website will sell it! The matching lotion is also heavenly.

Next is Le Labo Fragrance’s Santal 33.

SPICE: Cardamom, Iris, violet, ambrox. Australian sandalwood, papyrus and cedar wood.

 If I had to choose one perfume for the rest of my life, it would probably be this one. This perfume lasts on my skin all day and it’s worth every penny to me. If you don’t know about Le Labo, I did a post featuring my visit there! Click here to read it!


Flora by Gucci 

FLORAL: Red berries, white gardenia, frangipani flower, brown sugar.

Flora by Gucci is one of the newbies on my vanity. It’s classic, floral, springy. I can’t wait to break this out closer to the spring time!

Marc Jacobs Cotton 

CLEAN (Lightly Floral + Woody): Bergamot, jasmine, cotton accords and musk.

I have to say this perfume surprised me. It’s probably the cleanest, most ideal scent I own. I want a million candles to smell like this, I want to pipe this scent into my air vents, I want to wash my clothes in it! I often find myself spraying way too many pumps of it in the morning but I can’t help it! It’s clean, comforting and simple.


SPICE: Black pepper, juniper berries, leather accord, orris, violet, black amber, patchouli and vanilla.

I would say that 1996 probably means the most to me. I found this perfume the week of my 21st birthday at a shop in Los Angeles. 1996 is the year I was born, so that was cute and the name of the company BYREDO is mysteriously similar to my husband’s name Byron Rideau. It was just all too perfect. And then I smelled 1996. I was transported somewhere I’ve never been, but wanted to go to. Somewhere in the future, close, but still a mystery. I only wear 1996 on special occasions and it brings me back to Los Angeles, on my birthday with my family, my love by my side. I felt that between the spicy, almost masculine scent, the name BYREDO and the fact it was called 1996, it was made for me.


Marc Jacobs DAISY

FLORAL: Wild strawberry, velvety, violet petals, gardenia and jasmine.

This is an OG Perfume I just added back to my collection. It’s comfortingly fresh and clean and I know I’ll wear it all through the summer!

Jo Malone Peony and Blush Suede AND Orange Blossom.

Peony and Blush Suede, FLORAL. Peony, red apple, jasmine, rose and gillyflower.

Orange Blossom, FLORAL. Clementine flower, orange blossom, water lily, orris, balsamic vetiver.

I love both of the scents and can’t recommend them enough. Jo Malone does an incredible job at creating extremely complex fragrances simple enough to wear every day. They are artfully crafted and lovely.

Miss Dior Cherie + Ralph Lauren Romance

I had to give a shoutout to these two. Consider it an honorable mention. They are classics! My dad bought me Miss Dior Cherie when I was 13 in Paris. Ralph Lauren Romance is one of the first perfumes I ever stole from my Aunt’s bathroom counter. I don’t wear either of them much anymore, but I keep them to remind me of a simpler time- I just love them both.

I hope you all enjoyed this little post about my fav scents! Don’t forget to comment your favorites below + let me know what other posts you’d like to see on my site!

5 Wardrobe Staples Under $25!

5 Wardrobe Staples Under $25 (And How To Wear Them!)

Hey Buttercups! I’ve been working really hard on this post for you guys! I always get asked about my style, where I buy things and how I wear them. I think there’s a huge misconception that all of my clothes are designer, LOL. Nah fam. 90% of my wardrobe is Forever 21! But recently with the business of life (and my budget!) I find myself not being able to shop in the mall as much, so I get a lot of shopping online.

I’ve found a couple new favorite stores that are perfect for purchasing basics and trendy wear! I put together some looks for you with five things that cost under $25 each. An embroidered denim jacket, a basic wrap denim skirt, boyfriend shorts, a slouchy sweater and retro sunnies are my must haves as we transition from hot summer to cool fall. I know school is about to start too! So if you’re in school consider this a “Back To School Outfits” post also! Just swap the heels for some all white sneakers and you’ll be fly in the hallways. I hope you guys love these looks!

       I love this rose embroidered denim jacket from! It’s sweet with denim on denim, midi skirts or over a dress! Embroidery is definitely one of my favorite trends of 2017 and it’s in my closet to stay! And the best part is that it’s only $23! CLICK HERE to buy this denim jacket! 

 I’m obsessed with these shorts, you guys. They’re only $14.99 from CLICK HERE to buy these shorts!

Romwe Fashion T-shirts

I think that even in the summer, everyone needs a comfy sweater to lounge around in… My current favorite is this gray one with a cute pocket from! It’s so soft and drapes like a dream. CLICK HERE to buy this sweater for $16.99!

Next is this PERFECT wrap denim skirt! It’s one piece that you wrap around and buckle manually, so it really is flattering because you can create the size perfect for you. I love it in the summer with a lacy tank top and I can’t wait to wear it in the fall with thigh high boots! CLICK HERE to buy this skirt for $16.00 from!


Lastly, I absolutely love these square, super 90’s sunglasses! I scored them for only $5.90 from! CLICK HERE to buy these sunnies!

I hope you guys absolutely love these looks as much as I do!

Love, Mariah

The Houston Chronicles: A Day at the Parfumerie

Hey, Friends! Just a quick hello here. The last few weeks Byron and I have been at our High School Camp and our Middle School Camp with our students one after another so it’s been non-stop! We got home Friday, caught up on some home stuff on Saturday and then went to church all day Sunday! So when Byron decided to have a day-date on Monday I was so excited!  I get asked all of the time, “what do I do in Houston?”! I am working on posting Mariah’s Guide to HTX but for now, I wanted to tell you a little bit of what we did yesterday. It was such a fun, simple day all in the same area!

Breakfast! We started the day off with breakfast at Cafeza. Cafeza is one of our favorite places in Houston! It’s nestled in the First Ward of Houston Heights are. They have the best breakfast tacos, coffee and vibe. If you go, I would order the Veggie Breakfast Tacos, the Cafe Miel to drink with almond milk and of course finish off your meal with Churros. It’s so chill in there, we go every Monday morning!

Next we went off to take some photos around Montrose. Montrose is so dreamy, I would move there if we could! So many ask me where I take my Instagram photos, and the answer is really anywhere. But Montrose has really cool neighborhoods and streets to snap some pictures.

Shopping! After that we love to walk around and window shop. The streets are crowned with antique shops, vintage clothing stores, tattoo parlours and cafes. A few of our favorite places to shop are…

Merchant and Market , A great shop filled with eye catching gems. I love just seeing their creativity in their inventory. You have to check it out!

Montrose Shop, THIS PLACE IS MY FAVORITE. You guys, I wish I could live in here. Montrose Shop is a beautiful shop in the heart of Montrose. They have everything from clothing to candles, from cookbooks to stationary. And plus it’s a great backdrop for photos and also a place to get inspiration for your home and life in general. I love you, Montrose Shop!

713 Tattoo Parlour , Between Byron and I we have 6 tattoos, three each. One of our favorite places to get inked is 713 Tattoo Parlour right on Wertheimer in Montrose. Byron spontaneously decided to get a tattoo he’s been wanting, and Mike took us in and did a great job! S’cute!

Le Labo, O. M. G. you guys. So I grew up going back and forth being Houston and LA. There is a Le Labo shop in Venice, CA that my dad and I love to pop into when we’re in the area! Le Labo is not only made from organic ingredients, it’s made freshly in the shoppe. There are scents to choose from, you pick your favorite, and then instead of them pulling you a dusty box off of the shelf – the craftsman or craftswomen there go into a little glass lab and start blending your fragrance right in front of you. It’s not just a perfume or cologne, it’s a fragrance experience and it’s so luxurious and special. And then they print you the label with your name on it. I picked up the scent SANTAL 33, which is more on the spicy side. Byron and I are both obsessed with the scent and will probably both be wearing it! We also really love their candles, my favorite on is PALO SANTO 14. If you’re looking for a fragrance, I would suggest Thé Noir, Bergamot 0r Fleur D’Oranger. It’s a sweet gift for someone you love or just even for yourself.

Lastly, we hit up Common Bond Bakery for more coffee and snacks! If you go to Common Bond to study, hangout, or just take some time to find inspiration – I would order the Pistachio Croissant, Red Velvet Macaron and the Cookie Dough Macaron, a Vanilla Almond Milk Flat White and I also usually take a loaf of freshly baked bread to bring home for breakfast, grilled cheeses and just in general bread cravings. Hehe!

Above are a few photos from our day-date and our visit to Le Labo Houston! Thank you Giselle, Carly and the Le Labo Team for being so awesome!

I have a lot of posts coming your way as summer comes to a close.

Love you! Mariah

Raindrops on Roses and Whiskers on Kittens, MARCH Favorites

Hey Beautiful Friends! I always share my favorite beauty products and new buys on my Instagram story, but I get a lot of questions about my favorite new things that I’m using. I’m one of those people that puts things into heavy rotation. Even if I find a foundation I LOVE, I still want to try new things! I just picked up a new foundation that I’ll link below and a few other products that I’ve bought and used just this month!

In the photo above you see that little pink bottle that says Joy! That’s my favorite Essential Oil from I sometimes wear it as perfume, or apply it to my pressure points when I need emotional balance or an uplifting! It’s a perfect mix of Ylang Ylang, Bergamot, Geranium, Lemon, Tangerine, Coriander, Jasmine and Rose and it is divine! For more information about EO’s email me in Ask Mariah!

I’ve been super into using gel nail polish because I don’t have time to paint my nails every few days. But Chanel Nail Colors have totally saved me in between manis! It lasts really long, doesn’t chip easily and is so shiny! I love classic colors black and light baby pink.




I’m super excited about the two things in this photo above! I use Nars Foundation and LOVED it but I’ve heard incredible things about Smashbox also! This Studio Skin Hydrating Foundation is so yummy. It doesn’t feel heavy, it gives good coverage and leaves my skin glowing after I take it off! I use shade 2.3.                                                                                           I also shared that I picked up these brushes from Urban Outfitters! BH cosmetics 10 Piece Sculpt + Blend 2 Brush Set. Incredible for contouring and blending, they’re super soft and I love them! The best part? $20! 

If you’re not on that Kylie Cosmetics budget, I’ve got you! I remember my mommy wearing milani lipgloss since I was little, and I found this in the drugstore the other day! It’s their Amour Matte collection! Sold in drugstores I find this formula to be very pigmented and it dries in place without completely drying out my lips! This is shade Covet which is very similar to kylie’s Candy K!

Next I’m loving this Charlotte Tilbury mascara, Legendary Lashes! I have it in Black Vinyl. The only thing I don’t like about this mascara is that it’s very wet. I would definitely suggest getting the waterproof formula!

Okay! So my last products aren’t beauty products – but they are making my house beautiful! I love cleaning my house but I refuse to use any classic cleaning products filled with chemicals (sorry mom), so of course Mrs. Meyers is my favorite. For Spring they came out with a seasonal scent, Peony and it’s the very best thing I’ve ever smelled! It feels like I’m cleaning with the most beautiful perfume and I’m going to Target today to buy 10 more bottles so I can have it all year! I bought the Dish Soup, Multi-Surface Cleaner AND I have the Hand Soup and Hand Lotion on our bathroom sink. I can’t urge you enough to go buy this right now! So good! 

I’ll be sharing each month my favorite products I’ve been using and finding that month! For any suggestions, ideas or questions comment below! All of these products are shared because I’ve used them and loved them! (no sponsorships). If you buy and use any of these let me know what you think! XO Mariah!

Good Morning, Sunshine!

My Morning Routine

Hey you guys! So I couple days I ago I was going through my DM’s and realized that the most requested post is of my morning routine! I love this because the morning is my most favorite time of the day. The day is full of possibilities, you’re (hopefully) well rested and you can collect yourself and get organized for the day ahead and days to come.

Now, disclaimer is that my mornings vary daily.  Previously I worked at a local coffee shop owned by some sweet friends of mine a couple days a week, I’d take the opening shift which means I left my house by about 5:15 AM. Yea… I know.

But now my husband and I get to work together at a church here in houston! (We get to carpool and kiss at the red lights! hehe.) I have a lot more time in the morning now to collect my thoughts and get through my routine! I hope you guys are inspired to hit the snooze button a few times less than normal, and use some of my steps in the morning to propel you into an incredible day!

I try to wake up everyday between 7:00 – 8:00 AM. This will really depend on the kind of night you had before… you guys: SLEEP IS SO GOOD! Even if it means missing out on something cool, you have to put your body first sometimes no matter what age you are.

Once I’m up the first thing I do is open the blinds on the window in our bedroom. Light is the principal control of our day-night cycle, influencing everything from body temperature to metabolism to sleep.

Next thing I do is stretch and meditate and pray! Stretching everyday could be the key to some of your energy problems throughout the whole day! And meditation for me is just 5-10 minutes of sitting quietly, reflecting on God’s goodness and opening a space of quiet for Him to whisper and just speak.

The next thing I do is make my bed. This is an incredible habit to have, because it’s a reminder that it’s time to get to work and not lounge time! On the weekend the bed stays unmade all weekend. But during the week I have to be sure to remember to get going.(because I’m a lazy koala bear that would happily stay in bed all day watching hulu)

Once the bed is made I patter to the kitchen to warm up water for my morning warm water with fresh lemon juice. This habit totally changed my life years ago! Hot water with lemon has insanely good benefits! It helps you detox everyday, it wakes up your digestive track, it soothes an upset tummy and supports weight management and energy levels. I drink it every morning before anything else!

While I have my lemon water I’ll have my quiet time with a devotional, a book I’m reading that week or if I have a lot of time I’ll youtube a message from alex seeley or steven furtick to watch while I do my makeup.

After my quiet time I moisturize, try to curl my hair (I never end up having time!) and throw on some makeup. After I’m out of my pjs it really helps me focus on the work I have for that day.

I’ll sit down, look at my schedule, write a to-do list and get strategic about what I can realistically get done that day. If I have extra time I’ll flip through a cookbook and figure out what to make for supper and write my market list. (This is my most favorite time of the morning!)

Another incredible thing you can do in the morning is speak affirmations over yourself, your life and your day. It sounds SO cheesy but I promise it’s good! It can be as simple as “I am happy and content in my heart today…” or “I am filled with gratitude and kindness for another day on this earth…” when I would feel sick and have low energy I would declare “I am feeling healthy and strong today!” Whatever you need, declare it!

Honestly you guys, taking time for yourself and working hard at creating habits that help you and sustain you will carry you through your whole life. Sleeping in until the last minute before you leave may get you an hour or two extra of sleep, but when you give yourself time to unwind into the morning, start your with fresh eyes and perspective, and bask in the quiet light of love and rest it can change everything.

I hope those of you who asked for this post enjoyed it!

All my love x




Raindrops On Roses and Whiskers On Kittens

Hi!! First I want to say thank you to everyone who commented, DM’d and emailed me about my last post. I was overwhelmed with gratitude (and relief) that so many of you received something from it- I couldn’t believe how many of you expressed that “uninvited” applied to so many of your lives. Thank you, merci, always and forever.


Okay so – I don’t know about you guys, but there are SO many products out there that make promises to us in commercials and ads and then when we actually go get them we’re disappointed. So I decided to share some of my most favorite, loved, and trusted beauty products! My beauty routine changes constantly, but especially during different seasons. As soon as Fall comes my skin tends to get super dry… So I am constantly doing anything I can to keep it glowing and clear, even as the cold months approach us. I have to warn you though, I don’t believe in using products that have ingredients I can’t pronounce or aren’t safe. Natural is the way to go, my friends. Please believe me! Every night I take off  my make up and wash my face with Coconut Oil (like literally from the grocery store! Hello $7.99! Hello #BudgetLifeVictories!)… After that I spray a natural facial toner. Sometimes I’ll make my own (Let me know if you’d be interested in the recipe!). And then comes a face oil and a moisturizer. About 2-3 nights a week I’ll do a clay or homemade mask. I promise, when you take care of your skin – consistently and naturally – it will change your life. You’re loving your body, taking time for yourself and investing into you. Below are a few of my favorite things right now. But I cannot lie… One of them is my most favorite.

I’ve always adored essential oils. When I was younger, my best friend in the neighborhood had fourteen brothers and sisters. Incredible, I know. Their mama, Jackie was my favorite person to see, though. It could be ANY thing: a cold, the terrible approach of acne, a scrape or cut… even a bad mood. Mama Jackie would have a cure for it. And it was always an essential oil. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned to love those little bottles of liquid healing more and more. But today, I’ll share with you: Frankincense. THE MOST INCREDIBLE THING, EVER.

A little bit about Frankincense…

Health Benefits: helps relieve chronic stress and anxiety, reduces pain and inflammation, boosts immunity and even fights cancer.

Where it’s from: Frankincense is sourced from the resin of the Boswellia carterii or Boswellia sacara tree that’s commonly grown in Somalia. This tree is different from many others in that it can grow with very little soil in dry and desolate conditions.

How to use it: I love to sprinkle a few drops in my bath with epsom salt after a long day, rub a few drops on a scar, stretch mark, or acne as a remedy. Once I was out of toothpaste and mixed Frankincense oil with baking soda as homemade toothpaste (the bomb!) and also I diffuse it in my house as a stress reliever. My favorite use though is as a skin brightener and natural beauty enhancer in my moisturizer! I swear it makes my skin GLOW! Which is what inspired me to write this post, I couldn’t keep the goodness all to myself! Here is my routine of the moment:

 IXMUCANE Skincare, Facial Toner

If you’d like to know more about natural oils + ingredients and their uses just let me know! And if you want to get involved in the lifestyle of Young Living, Essential Oils – email me in “ask mariah”. We all gotta look out for each other, it’s a crazy world of chemicals out there! And as always, remember… Beauty is on the inside. When you can love yourself, because Jesus adores you and that’s enough, it shines outward. Beauty starts in your heart and ends in the way you live. All my love! xx Mariah!!
