(The filter on the photo above makes my skin look incredible and flawless, but I assure you, it isn’t.)
Just a little preview of a video I shot today. I had some issues and I felt like a dork, but I did it. Now on to editing in between working, and hopefully it will be up this week. Hope you like!

I just wanted to let you know that I’m still working on school work, and will be until around the second full week of November. I will definitely be back with so much makeup awesomeness, you won’t be able to stand it! (But you will, I promise.)
I’m still active on Twitter, posting makeup looks, new finds, etc., so follow me @newshineblog! You won’t be disappointed. I don’t think.
My name is Laura, and I’m addicted to beauty. (Hi, Laura.)
new shine is a beauty blog dedicated to finding the best “drugstore” beauty products and testing, reviewing, and then sharing them with all of you. We all want to look amazing, but ya know what? Using expensive products to do so is just that: EXPENSIVE. As a college student, I don’t have those kinds of funds rolling in, so I have learned to be creative and find the best inexpensive items that work like the pricey brands and give those products a run for their money. The key is to maximize a product’s utility by incorporating some professional techniques that I’ve learned from professionals and amateurs alike. Are you ready?
You may be wondering where the name “new shine” came from. Every time you go out and purchase some new makeup, a new purse, or a kickin’ pair of heels, you just bought some new shine. New shine is anything that brightens up your outlook, your day, or your under-eye circles. Something that makes you walk a little straighter and helps you convey to the world that you are, in fact, quite awesome. It’s empowerment through beauty (in the case of this blog), and I love it!
Since this blog is for YOU, if you have any ideas for products to try or you’ve been searching for that perfect long-wearing lip gloss and just can’t find one, let me know! I want to share news and products that matter to your life, so shout out your ideas in the comments section of any post or hit me up @newshineblog on twitter. Tell your friends, your mom, your sisters, and your boss: new shine is here!!
