When it comes to beauty I’m no expert, but I am curious, so I thought it would be fun to start a column called, “Ask A Makeup Artist.” In this column we (as in you and I) will be asking makeup artists for their best tips, products, applications, DIY ideas, and more. Please leave any beauty-related questions in the comments. xx

In this week’s installment of “Ask A Makeup Artist,” I asked my friend and LA-based makeup artist Meghan Nguy to tell me everything there is to know about those cute little makeup sponges known as the beautyblender. Why should we use them? How do we properly use them? Which one should we buy? How do we clean them? Here are her answers:

If you’re reading my blog you probably know that I’m constantly trying to add healthy and clean habits into my life. One of the habits I’ve focused on lately is drinking more water. Consuming enough water is a serious commitment and one that I’ve previously fallen short on. It can be easy to forget to sip enough and might not seem like a huge deal, but it is!

For that reason, I’ve made carrying a durable bottle with me a must since half the struggle of getting enough h2O is the access. I’ve been loving the bottles from bobble because they limit the waste of plastic and are something that I can use for years. I wanted one to carry around the house and city, but also one for my gym bag, so I chose two: bobble Infuse and bobble Insulate.

Dairy Free Blueberry Vanilla Bean Ice Cream

Blueberry & Vanilla Bean Ice Cream Ingredients Dairy Free Blueberry & Vanilla Bean Ice Cream Almost Vegan Blueberry & Vanilla Bean Ice Cream Recipe Dairy Free Blueberry & Vanilla Bean Ice Cream Recipe
My obsession with making dairy free ice cream continues (how good was my matcha recipe?!)! There’s something about combining coconut cream with different combos in the ice cream maker that is incredibly satisfying, mostly because they all turn out delicious.

The flavor I’ve been devouring this week? Vanilla bean & blueberry…and OMG it’s good.

The tartness of the blueberries + the smoothness of the vanilla bean + the sweetness of the honey/maple syrup all grounded by the lightness of the coconut makes for a soft, heavenly, sophisticated, and satisfying bite (and let’s be honest, lick of the bowl). If you want something a bit sweeter, simply double up on the sweet ingredients. Here’s how to make it:
