Just because summer is coming to an end, it doesn’t mean the sun has to set on your beauty routine! Sunset eyes are a fab look to wear throughout fall. This palette highlights all of falls best colors and has all the awesome hues that just came off the runway. To achieve this sunset eye, simple apply an orange toned base color all over the eye and up towards the brow. Apply a darker shade in the middle of your lid and blend outward. (No worries if you blend too far out, you can always clean it up with a wipe or beauty blender). Continue Reading
Now that we are all masked up, what do we do with our lips? Just when you thought you wouldn’t be able to wear your favorite lipstick again, I found the perfect solution…long-lasting smudge proof lipstick!

The floral lip trend, first spotted on the catwalks last spring, is inspired by nature, focusing on floral tones. Since we are all wearing masks and it’s virtually impossible to wear a bold lip, it’s time to stick to neutral colored lipsticks. The easiest way to achieve this washed out look is to start off by applying concealer all over your lips.

A full 3 months of not getting my hair done, needing a haircut and hiding my grown out roots has made me very crafty when it comes to new hair styles and accessories. I have actually had a lot of fun playing around with top knots, ponytails and silk hair ties. Not feeling the hair accessories? No worries, tie back your hair and throw on a bold statement earring, you will be good to go! Summer is here and it’s time for slicked back hair, minimal styling and ” just got out of the pool” hair styles. Check out some of my favorite products below for summer hair and my new favorite accessories, earrings included!
My summer sunscreen routine is tried and true! I have been using the tinted Elta MD on my skin for years and LOVE it! It’s a broad-spectrum SPF 46 for sensitive, acne-prone skin and it’s oil free. I tend to breakout during the summer, especially when using a heavy sunscreen but not with Elta MD. It’s lightweight but still strong enough to block off all of those harmful rays. (They make various products so if you have dry skin, check out this product).

I have moments of extreme motivation with my workouts and yoga but overall not excercising as consistently as I would like to…..Oh well, it’s SHELTER IN get out of exercise for FREE card.
I know a lot of us are taking this time in quarantine to let our skin breathe but I have to be honest…putting on makeup sometimes just makes me feel better! Don’t get me wrong, I have days where I have no desire to do anything but put on moisturizer. Others days, makeup motivates me!!!!
