un peu de tout

Un peu de tout {œ̃ pø də ty} - French for a "little of everything" - which is what you'll find here! So sit back, grab a glass of Pinot Noir and dig in! 

For as long as I can remember I've loved to sing and act and experiment with make-up and skincare. 

As a performer, I learned that using products that would hold up under stage lighting but wouldn't break me out was challenging. It wasn't until I was introduced to clean beauty that I found a solution to both of those issues. Now, my goal is to share the benefits of using cleaner, more eco-friendly products, both on-stage and off!

I'm also a big advocate of wellness and using different forms of Art (singing, design, writing) as part of my self-care practice. This blog is a compilation of everything I love and do (un peu de tout) and I hope you enjoy what you find here!

Hi friends, I'm Brie —

Why You Need a Website/Blog & Why I am Obsessed with Showit and Tonic Site Shop!

Because my skin is so oily, I generally tend to stick with mineral powder foundations, as liquids and creams always end up looking “cakey” or wearing off after a few hours on my skin. I only wear natural and organic make-up, so you can imagine how frustrating this has been for me, especially when I […]

Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques Creme Foundation Review + Discount Code

One of the categories in the clean beauty sphere that I am always looking for is hair products. I not only dye and highlight my hair, but I have a ton of it. Which means I need something that protects my color without weighing my hair down. Since switching to sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners, I […]

Review/ Vegamour Enso Line

So, if you’re into multi-purpose skincare devices and personalized skincare products, then this post is definitely for you! 🙂 […]

Olura Glow + Sculpt Kit Review

This post is probably long overdue, but I wanted to try as many of their products as I could afford before writing a full review on them. Even though I have my tried and true (more luxe end in some cases) faves, I am always on the lookout for more budget-friendly, high quality, equally as […]
