It’s Makeup Monday, my favorite day of the week! Today I’m sharing some of my favorite goodies sent to me by my friends at Almay! I can’t wait to show you all of the products but today I’m going to hone in on their Velvet Foil Cream Shadows. First of all, I want to say that the first day I wore this shadow, 3 people commented on how amazing my eye makeup looked! I was so excited!
I am a creature of habit with just about everything in my life, especially when it comes to my makeup ! I have learned over the years (and with the help of many professionals) what works for me. What better way to share the love than to show you how you too can conquer your morning makeup routine in under 5 minutes! The older we get, it seems as if we need to wear more makeup but I am going to show you that less is more! Cover what you need to cover and highlight what needs to be highlighted and you will be good to go!
Here are my favorite staple products that I have been using for years –
It’s Makeup Monday…ahh how I wish I was still in this bath! It’s cold outside, my kiddos are making me crazy and cabin fever is in full full swing! So whats the best way to counteract all of this? (besides a bottle of Pinot noir!?) a hot bath with bubbles preferably!! LOL So lets get to it, relax and take a bath with some of my favorite products:
For years I was so worried about getting blowouts and styling my hair! It was fabulous for a minute then it became a huge hassle and extremely costly. I would travel and have to find the nearest blowout bar because I didn’t want to leave my hair “natural” and had to have a blowout (with the hopes it would last for a few days). Dry shampoo was my best friend for years… Not sure what changed with me but I started to become so annoyed with booking salon appointments and realized I was avoiding working out so I wouldn’t ruin my blowout! Ridiculous right?
Looking for cupcake proof lipstick?!? A long-lasting lipstick that will withstand everything from coffee to cupcakes?
It’s bath time! If you are anything like me, when you hear the words “bath time” you instantly think of your kids and rushing to get through their nighttime routine. Am I right? haha. These days, my kiddos are old enough to bathe themselves (finally)!! In true January fashion, I’m holding tight to my new years resolutions and it’s all about getting in a little extra “me time”.
I’m sorry if I sound like a broken record but I feel as though I am always writing about my beauty stories but trust me, I have so many of them! This post is about my face wash! I had been using Purpose soap from the drugstore since high school (a long AF time) up until about 6-months ago. My facialist, Satiko, told me that it was time to switch up my routine and start using a face wash for “maturing” (aka old) skin.
Fa la la la la!!! ‘Tis the season for giving and parties and fun and friends and lots and lots of red (red wine, red dresses and of course, red lipstick)! We all tend to go a little overboard with red during the month of December but I personally love it! It’s a festive color that gets you in the holiday spirit! Sometimes, less is more but when it comes to red lipstick, more is more!
