As I’m approaching my late twenties (omg!), I’m making a conscious effort to develop better skin care habits since it is the best time to prevent any visible signs of aging. Over the past month or so, I’ve locked down a beauty routine that has positively improved the elasticity, glow, and overall health of my facial skin! Keep reading to learn my top five favorite products this season…
As you could probably already tell… I CHANGED MY HAIR! I’m actually surprised that I pushed this off for so long because I’ve always been a short hair type of gal. I have super fine hair so the longer I grew it out, the more flat it became. I’m also not one to style my hair into braids or updos so I knew I needed something that would give my hair volume, style, and required little effort. For the cut, I was looking to get a textured bob that fell slightly below my chin area along with a slight a-line (meaning that the hair in the back would be gradually shorter than in the front). For the color, I wanted a balayage, with light ash brown sections throughout my dark hair. After a week or so of debating and hours at the salon, I’m incredibly happy with how my hair turned out! It’s light weight, natural, and perfect for Spring. If you’re looking into getting a similar style at the salon, keep reading to learn more about the preparation, process, and home care that goes into it!
WHAT IS A BALAYAGE?
First off, this is not to be confused with an Ombre! Although both end goals are to lighten the hair, an Ombre is a hair style that shows a dramatic transition of a “lighter shade from a darker shade.” In comparison, a Balayage (french for “Sweep”) is a technique that uses a freehand approach to create a natural blend of light and shade throughout the hair. This is done by painting color with a brush onto spaced out sections of the hair and progressively gets lighter as it reaches the ends. The result is subtle, sun-kissed, dimensional, and feels much more lived in (think beach vibes ya’ll).
The first thing you should do is RESEARCH! What type of hairstyle catches your eye? Both Pinterest and Instagram are amazing resources where you can easily take screenshots or pin images for future reference. Once you’ve gathered all your images, figure out what you specifically like about across each of them and lock down a style. Again, I decided to go with a Balayage, with light ash brown pieces throughout my dark hair.
Next is to research Salons in the area (don’t limit yourself to a specific location if you’re willing to trek far for quality work)! Look at their Yelp page and Instagram to get a glimpse of their portfolio. You want to make sure that they cater to the style you’re looking to achieve! The individual stylists generally have their own social feed as well so if you find a particular person who you would like to work with, don’t hesitate to request them when booking an appointment! I ended up getting mine done at Stem Salon located in Walnut Creek. I was also lucky enough to book a last minute session with Stephanie, a color stylist. This isn’t required but I found it helpful to compile all of the inspirational images into a mood board and share it with your stylist via e-mail prior to your appointment.
Note: If you’ve used box dye on your hair in the past – make sure to mention this to your stylist. Often times, this can affect how the color will react with your hair.
Honestly, be prepared to shell out a chunk of money at the salon. Depending on your length of hair and the location itself, you’d probably be spending anywhere between $150-300 for a Balayage.
Before you get started, make sure you and your stylist are on the same page! Refer back to the moodboard you provided and verbally explain what you would like. Remember to be as transparent as possible because your stylist can’t read your mind and the more detailed information they have, the happier you’ll be with the result! Asian hair tends to get brassy with it’s red/orange undertones so I made sure to point out that I wanted it as cool toned as possible. Once you have all your expectations laid out, expect to spend up to 4-8 hours at the salon (again, depending on your hair length and how good your hair takes the color).
This type of hairstyle is low maintenance (especially in comparison to ombre). However, this doesn’t mean that you should neglect a proper home care regime! As we approach the warmer months, our hair will be exposed to greater sun, saltwater, and chlorine — all of which can damage your balayage. If you don’t protect your hair from the sun, your hair will more than likely fade and expose it’s undertone (revealing orange/brassy hues). It is recommended that you go in for gloss treatments every 4-6 weeks to keep the tone in check! However, I recommend using a Purple Shampoo + Conditioner to maintain it’s color as long as possible like this one by Joico. Lastly, when styling with heat, make sure to always use some kind of heat protectant spray or oil.
I hope you found this helpful and let me know what you think of my new hair in the comments below!

As we age, our skin inevitability experiences everything from discoloration, wrinkles, dryness, to unwelcome breakouts. This, in combination with other major factors such as fatigue, sun damage, alcohol, and stress can all help accelerate the development of these major skin issues. Although this is a normal part of life, there are preventable measures to keep your skin feeling healthier and visibly younger! Avatara carries eight serum-infused sheet masks that specialize in treating pretty much every problem area on your face. To show you just how versatile their masks are, I’ve come up with 8 unique scenarios and paired them with the perfect face mask to use! All you need is 10-20 minutes and you’ll be left with a glowing complexion. Not sure where to start? Keep reading and your skin will thank you!
HANGOVER: Plump Up Face Mask
Did you party a little too hard last night?! The morning after can be rough and chances are, you’re left with puffiness, dark circles, and incredibly dehydrated skin. The Plump Up Face Mask is perfect for reducing any puffiness around the eyes, provides much needed hydration, and ultimately restores tired looking skin!
BIRTHDAY TREAT: LIGHT UP FACE MASK
Treat your self to a little extra pampering on your special day! As you reach another year older, it’s even more important to take care of your skin. One of the many results of aging is skin discoloration. To brighten up those dark areas and achieve younger-looking skin, use the Light Up Face Mask!
TIME OF MONTH: CLEAR OUT FACE MASK
Before the start of a woman’s period, the skin experiences greater oil production due to increased hormone levels. This in turn can lead to clogged pores and eventual breakouts! Since your skin is generally more sensitive during this time, you’ll want to use beauty products that are gentle on your skin. The Clear Out Face Mask is a perfect exfoliant for managing oily skin and keeping those pores clean to keep breakouts at bay.
POST WORK-OUT: SHAPE UP FACE MASK
Although sagging is a major result of aging, any kind of intense exercise like running can also be a factor (which is due to the collagen in your skin being torn apart). Luckily, the Shape Up Face Mask can help restore elasticity in your skin!
DATE NIGHT: EVEN OUT FACE MASK
Anyone with large pores knows how challenging make-up application can be – especially when dealing with foundation! Whip out the Even Out Face Mask to shrink your pores and create a smoother base for your skin the next time you get dolled up!
FESTIVAL RECOVERY: FILL IT UP FACE MASK
Festival season is upon us and after multiple long weekends under the hot desert sun, your skin will more than likely need a major detox. Did you know that over exposure to the sun (especially without sunscreen) can lead to fine lines and wrinkles? Counteract the sun’s harmful UV damage by applying the Fill It Up Face Mask, which will leave you with softer skin and a younger appearance. You can also place your sheet mask in the fridge prior to application for an additional soothing treat!
TRAVEL PREP: DRINK UP FACE MASK
With all the environmental changes you experience while traveling, it’s important to step up your skin care routine! Sink moisture back into your skin by applying a deeply hydrating mask mid-flight – the cabin air is incredibly drying! The Drink Up Face Mask helps to rejuvenate dry skin and will give you that much needed glow once you land!
STRESSFUL DAY: CHILL OUT FACE MASK
When our schedule is jam-packed with things to do, we often neglect our skincare routine, leaving our skin feeling incredibly dull. During stressful times like these, take a moment to nourish your face with the Chill Out Face Mask for radiant looking skin!
5 ADDITIONAL TIPS
- TEST IT: Avatara’s sheet masks are gentle but like with all skin care products during your first use, I recommend applying a tiny amount of the serum to the back of your hand to test your skin’s sensitivity to the product.
- USE IT ALL: After application, allow the serum to soak up on your skin and use any excess by massaging into other areas of your body such as your hands and neck!
- MIX + MATCH: If you have more than one skin issue that you’re facing, feel free to mix and match! That’s the beauty of Avatara’s face masks – they have a solution for everything.
- DEVELOP GOOD HABITS: On top of maintaining a good skin care routine, remember to keep yourself hydrated by drinking water on a daily basis and getting some beauty rest!
- TAKE A QUIZ: Still need some guidance? Avatara has a Skin Quiz that you can take that will match you with the best face mask to use to aid any specific skin concerns you may have.
Phew, that was a long list but I hope you found it helpful! The next time you find yourself in any one of these situations, make sure to break out any of these face masks! You can learn more about Avatara’s magical face masks here and/or you can find them at your local Target!

I’ve been having issues with my skin for the past couple of months, primarily around my chin area which I found to be the most prone to breaking out. I’ve tried acne medication like Proactive in my teen years, but I remember it being incredibly harsh for my sensitive skin, which caused me to break out even more. With that experience, I was a bit reluctant to try out anything else but after reading all the positive reviews on BioClarity, I thought it was worth taking the chance! Keep reading to learn more about the entire process, my results, and how you can purchase your own at a discounted rate!
BioClarity’s products contain no harmful chemicals and are made up of all natural ingredients such as Green Tea, Chamomile, Oat Kernel, and Cucumber — all of which help calm, sooth, and repair your skin!
BioClarity offers a quick and easy three-step process for application in the morning and night. Here’s a quick run down on how it works…
- Cleanser: Pour a dime size amount onto your finger tips and apply to slightly dampen skin. The formula is super gentle and leaves your skin feeling refreshed.
- Treatment: Apply this cream to your trouble areas and use it very sparingly (this product contains 2.0% Salicylic Acid)! If you tend to have super dry skin like me, make sure to skip this step and apply every other night to avoid completely drying out your skin.
- Restore Gel: Apply a thin green layer over desired areas and wait for the magic to happen! The unique aspect about this product is that it carries the ingredient, Floralux (a compound created from Chlorphyll, which in turn comes from plants).
After incorporating these products into my daily routine for the past 2+ weeks, I’ve already seen drastic improvements in my skin! As I mentioned earlier, I had a mini break out in my chin area earlier this month and since then, they’ve diminished to super faint blemishes that I’m sure will disappear after a couple more uses. In short, my skin has never consistently felt and looked this good!
Please keep in mind that these products may or may not work for everyone and could yield different results. If you’re interested in trying it out, you could purchase your own set at 50% the cost (originally $29.95) by using the code SHESELLE at checkout here.

DISCLAIMER: I received these frames from Felix Gray for review purposes. All opinions are honest and my own. Thank you for supporting the brands that keep Sheselle going!
I’m really trying to get in the habit of wearing eyeglasses more often, especially since I work in front of the computer screen a majority of my time and my eyes end up feeling super strained by the end of the day. Luckily, I got the exciting opportunity to try out some stylish frames from Felix Gray and after using them for the past couple weeks, they’ve already made a huge difference in terms of comfort (they’re specifically designed to filter blue light)! With all of that said, I’ve also developed a specific beauty routine when wearing frames because I swear, nothing is more annoying than your lashes hitting your lenses. Keep reading to learn some helpful tips when applying make-up…
1. WEAR CONCEALER
When you wear frames, they tend to cast dark shadows over your eyes so it’s even more important to apply concealer and/or color-corrector to brighten up your under eye area. Remember: Yellow counteracts red and Peach works best for cooler tones.
2. APPLY NEUTRAL SHADOWS
You don’t want to go too heavy on your eye make-up (ie. smokey eyes) and instead, go for more warmer, neutral shades like golds, tans, and browns. Again, darker colors when magnified behind your frames can make you appear more tired.
3. BALANCE YOUR LINER
If you’re wearing a thicker frame style, it’s good to define your eyes with a thick liner and the same goes vice versa. A winged cat eye is also a great way to make your eyes stand out!
4. ADD SOME GLOW TO YOUR SKIN
It’s hard to make your eyes stand out behind frames so make sure the rest of your skin looks flawless! Wear a good foundation and don’t forget to highlight areas like your cheekbones, nose bridge, and/or above brow bone.
5. GO BOLD ON THE BROWS
You already know that the brows frame the face and since you went slightly simple on your eyes, definitely make sure to emphasize those brows so that your eyeglasses don’t overpower everything else.
6. VOLUMIZE + CURL YOUR LASHES
If you’re going to apply mascara, make sure to curl your lashes first. A good tip is to use a hairdryer to carefully warm up your curler before curling to ensure that they hold the curl longer.
I’m wearing the style, Nash in Whiskey Tortoise with +.25 magnified lenses. If you’re interested, you can learn more about Felix Gray and explore all their frame styles here. Do you have any additional tips you’d like to share?! Let me know in the comments below!

Mondays can be a bit of a drag and it’s the day I’m usually left feeling the most drained. I mean, how do you expect anyone to transition out of weekend mode and straight into the grind of the workweek?! It doesn’t have to be all terrible, though, and reserving some time for yourself can instantly lift your spirits. One way that I like to do this is by pampering myself to a relaxing spa night to end my day on positive note and prepare myself for the crazy week ahead. I’m partnering with Joanna Vargas, a NYC Salon that carries an incredible line of skin care products, to show you my extended beauty routine! Hopefully this inspires you to occasionally treat yourself, especially when it comes to your body.
Before anything else, make sure to cleanse your face and remove all the dirt, oil, and make-up you’ve accumulated through out the day.
2. LIP TREATMENT
Avoid chapped lips by applying a hydrating and soothing lip balm. If you wear a lot of lip products like me, this will help create a much smoother base for your make-up to shine the next day!
3. BUBBLE BATH
I don’t think there’s anything more relaxing than a bubble bath! Go ahead and fill your tub with warm water and gently drop in any bath bomb of your choice until it fizzes out.
4. FACE MASK*
While you relax in the tub, apply a face mask for 15-20 minutes (remember to apply excess to your hands and neck)! Joanna Vargas’ Twilight Deep Conditioning Face Mask is made with bamboo and actually helps reverse negative effects from sun damage. After one use, I already felt like my skin was much firmer and vibrant.
5. HAIR MASK*
While you’re soaking in the tub, apply a restorative healing mask to your hair. I used one by Ouai Haircare and let me tell you, after only minutes of using it, my hair felt incredibly soft! Also, if you color or heat your hair often, this product does an amazing job at repairing damage.
6. FACIAL MOISTURIZER*
After that relaxing bubble bath, it’s time to moisturize… starting with your face! I used the Daily Hydrating Cream by Joanna Vargas, which is full of nourishing vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that hydrates and helps create more youthful glowing skin! It’s super gentle on the skin and has a lovely coconut scent.
7. BODY MOISTURIZER*
Finish off with a rich body creme to restore moisture back into your skin. I used Oribe Cote d’Azur Restorative Body Creme, which is made up of a combination of essential oils and shea butter, all of which help soften and protect your skin from damage. It feels SO luxurious when applied and you’ll wake up with a much healthier glow!
8. HAIR MOISTURIZER*
Lastly, add some moisture back into your hair! I used R+Co’s High Dive Moisture + Shine Creme and after working it through my towel-dried hair, it looked instantly shiny!
And that’s pretty much my routine for nights where I wan’t to feel extra special. Have you done a Spa Night before? Share your favorite products in the comments below! Also, make sure to check out Joanna Vargas, R+Co, and Oribe for more details on their beauty and skin care products.

We’re 3 days away from Valentines Day and if you’re looking for some make-up inspiration for your date (or whatever you have planned), here’s a sweet rosy make-up look that I put together! I was inspired by a romantic sunset and used a combination of orange, red, and gold hues for the eyes. Keep reading to learn what products I used and how to recreate this…
- After cleaning, apply moisturizer and face primer lotion to get rid of any dry patches and lessen the appearance of your pores.
- Apply a BB cream like SmashBox Camera Ready for a light coverage.
- Set your face with a translucent powder.
- Once face is set, apply a rosy colored blush to your cheeks and highlighter to bridge of nose and above your cheekbones.
- Begin by applying eyeshadow primer to your eye lids to make all the colors last longer!
- Using the Lorac palette, pack on Tangerine all over your entire lid.
- Then use Love Letter from the Anastasia palette in your crease.
- Go back to Goji from the Lorac palette and blend out the crease up to the brow area.
- Add a bit of definition to your eyes by applying Venetian Red from the Anastasia palette to your outer lids. Again, blend out with Goji from the Lorac palette until everything is like a seamless gradient!
- Apply the Mac lipstick to your lips and blot with tissue several times to reduce intensity.
- Follow with Bite lip gloss for a touch of shimmer (use sparingly!)
If you decide to recreate this look, I’d love to see it! Share via Instagram using #shesellebeauty so I can see!

I’ll be checking off my first place on my travel bucket list this year and jetting off to New York in a couple weeks! It’s seriously so surreal to me that it’s been nearly four years since my last stay as a fresh college graduate. It’s definitely one of the most inspiring and breathtaking cities that I’ve ever visited so I can’t wait to experience it all over again! Since I’ll be traveling for about 6 hours to a place with colder temperatures, I thought I’d share my Winter in-flight routine. As I’ve mentioned before, I like to wear very little to no make-up while I travel but never skimp out on beauty care products because cabin air can be super drying for your skin. If you’re planning a long haul trip soon, buckle up and let’s get started…
1. Cleansing + Exfoliating Wipes
The first thing I usually do during my flights is remove all of the gunk off my face with a cleansing cloth to let my pores breathe. You can purchase these from any of your local drug stores and Simple Skin Care makes some relatively affordable ones that are perfect for sensitive skin. Tip: Ask your stewardess for a warm cloth to apply on your face to open up those pores!
2. Ole Henricksen Nurture Me Facial Water*
I like to spritz this on between takeoff and landing for that instant boost of moisture in my skin. It might sound unnecessary but it’s so refreshing, calming, and can also help with jet lag. Tip: You can purchase small travel friendly containers to transfer your trusted skin products to avoid pesky TSA restrictions.
3. Tarte Maracuja Oil
I usually only bring this if I have an overnight flight or one longer than 5 hours. All you need is a few drops in your hand, gently pat it on your face, and wait for the magic to seep in! This lightweight botanic oil leaves me with such a soft dewy look and minimizes any visible pores.
4. Face + Eye Masks
After application, go ahead and catch some much needed Zzz’s. You’ll wake up with soft and rejuvenated skin!
5. Ole Henrickson Truth Creme Advanced Hydration*
I tend to have dry patches. This moisturizer leaves your skin feeling smooth and instantly brightens up your complexion. Like most of Ole’s products, it contains Vitamin C and Tripeptide-5, which tightens and gets rid of any wrinkles! It’s light, non-greasy, and really locks in moisture
6. Balance Me Tinted Wonder Eye Cream
Get rid of those raccoon eyes with this all in one cream, which adds light coverage, hydrates, and reduces puffiness in your under eyes!
7. Hanalei Lip Treatment
This balm is super thick but isn’t too waxy or sticky in texture like other balms. It’s packed full of natural oils that heal, moisturize, nourish, and protect your lips from harmful free radicals. I’ve always had an issue with chapped lips but whenever I use this product, it leaves them feeling so soft throughout the entire day. Seriously, this stuff is amazing and is perfect for long and/or overnight flights during the colder months.
8. L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream
Don’t forget to show some love to rest of your body, too! In addition to your face, your feet and hands also lose moisture so make sure to bring a rich body cream for those areas. Tip: This is the perfect time to bring along all those beauty samples tucked in your drawers!
Lastly, the easiest way to stay hydrated is to drink water! After reading all of this, you’re probably thinking about how ridiculous you might look on your flight but I promise your skin will thank you! Traveling in itself is stressful so whats a few awkward glances in exchange for relaxation and hydration? What beauty products do you recommend bringing on travels? Share them below!

FYI: I was kindly gifted these skin care products from Ole Henrickson (products marked with asterisk). All opinions and thoughts are my own.
With the Holiday season in full swing, I’m partnering with Scentbird to try out a couple different fragrances that are perfect for either a Holiday brunch with family or a night out with friends! If you’re like me and like to wear things based off your mood or according to the ocassion, then this monthly subscription service is perfect for you. It’s seriously like “dating” perfumes before “marrying” them because you get the chance to try out a roller ball sized spray bottle of any designer fragrance before committing to a full size. Scent bird also sent me Deck of Scarlet, a new monthly palette subscription service that is made in collaboration with a Artist in Chief (aka a popular YouTuber). This month is filled with beautiful golds, burgundy, and greens that are perfect for creating multiple looks during this time of year!
Using their fragrances and palette, I’ll be showing you how to easily transform your Holiday looks from day to night! If you’ll be on a time crunch between festivities (I’m sure we’ve all been in our office bathrooms frantically applying makeup), then I got a fool proof game plan for you.
PHOTO CREDIT: ALLURE | TYPE: SHESELLE
- Moisturize your entire face, lips, and under eyes.
- Next, apply a face primer as a base to allow all your make-up to last through out the day, control oil, and matify your skin. For smoother application of your eye shadow and better pigmentation, glide on some primer over your lids as well.
- When everything is prepped and primed, apply foundation to your entire face and then apply concealer under your eyes. To lock everything in, lightly dust some translucent powder over your face.
- Now that you created a flawless canvas to work on, it’s time to add some color to your eyes! Using the Deck of Scarlet Palette and a blending brush, apply the Lucky Eyeshadow into your crease. To get rid of any harsh lines, apply a bit of the Bluff Powder Blush to blend out the crease towards the brow bone. Gently pack on some of the Irresistible Eyeshadow all over your lids for a bit of sparkle. Tip: Like any glitter shadow, there will be fall out so use a slightly damp brush to help keep it in place. If pieces of glitter land on your cheeks, simply sweep over with a clean face brush to remove!
- Apply your favorite smudge proof liquid eye liner to create a thin cat eye and brush some water proof mascara onto your lashes.
- Sweep on some Playtime Cream Brush on both of your cheeks for a soft glow.
- Fill in your brows then apply high lighter to your cheekbones, bridge of your nose, cupids bow, and above your brow bone.
- Line your lips with the Oh So Nude Lipliner for the color on top to last longer! Swipe some Jackpot Cream Lipstick onto your lips for something neutral or mix a bit of the Flush Cream Lipstick (like I did) for a bit more of a mauve color.
- Lastly, spritz on a light perfume like Stella McCartney’s Stella (this has notes of Rose, Peony Flower, Mandarin, Rose Absolute, Amber!)
- Turn that light pink lip into something bold! Using a lip brush, generously apply the Flush Cream Lipstick to your lips for a vampy look!
- Intensify your blush! In this case, I lightly blended out a bit of the Flush Cream Lipstick onto my cheeks for a darker shade.
- Add the Lust + Chocolate Eyeliner to your upper and lower water lines (this is something quick and easy that makes all the difference!)
- Since you’re already rocking winged eyeliner, apply the Lucky Loot Eyeshadow (a dark olive green) to the outer lids of your eyes to smoke them out as well as along the lower lash line.
- Reapply any highlighter as needed to sparkle your night away!
- To save all the hard work you just did and to guarantee that you’ll be strutting this look all night, use Makeup Setting Spray.
- Lastly, to go along with this darker look, spritz on something more muskier like YSL’s Dark Opium (this has notes of Coffee Accord, Orange Blossom, Cedar Wood Essence, Patchouli Essense!)
Both of these services are incredibly affordable, accessible, and an easier alternative to purchasing individual full size products. With Scentbird, choose from 450+ Designer scents (including Prada, Gucci, Nest, and more) for only $14.95 a month! You can also cancel anytime and shipping is free.

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday! It’s been a few days since my last post but I wanted to sign off social media for a bit to simply enjoy quality time with loved ones. This year, we just prepared a delicious meal at home but I still wanted to get dressed up for the occasion! I also was excited to try out my Anastasia Modern Renaissance Palette (which I bought from the Sephora VIB sale recently) and wanted to create a look around it. For full details on the products that I used, scroll down to the bottom of this post!
First, I used the Pur-Lisse Blue Lotus Balancing Moisturizer to get rid of any dry patches on my face. Then, using a stippling brush, I applied Make-up Forever Ultra HD foundation (120=Y245). To conceal my eyes, I gently applied Naked Skin Urban Decay concealer with my ring finger (Med-Light Neutral). To lock everything in, I set my face with Laura Mercier Translucent Powder.
Moving on to my eyes! I tend to get really oily lids so applying Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer potion is a must! I applied “Gold” all over my lids, “Venetian Red” in the crease, “Realgar” to blend out the crease area, and “Cypress Umber” in the outer area of my lids to add more definition. I then applied “Vermeer” on my brow bone for highlight and the same “Venetian Red” on my lower lids.
I then applied my favorite liquid eyeliner of all time by Kat Von D (I swear by this stuff), Tarte’s Lights Camera Lashes to lengthen and thicken my lashes, Stila All Day Liquid Liner (shade Amore) on my lips so nothing budges while I’m eating all that Thanksgiving food, and Anastasia brow gel for a more natural look.
Lastly, I applied the finishing touches to my face by lightly packing blush onto my cheeks and highlighter to the top of my cheekbones, bridge of my nose, and cupids bow.
Voila – I hope you enjoyed this holiday look! What are your go-to make-up products during the Holidays? Let me know in the comments below!
