Review: Honest Beauty Contour Kit + Tutorial

  We love contouring, all day everyday. Call us a little over-the-top, but adding a little extra definition (especially when wearing a medium/full coverage foundation that ultimately eliminates the dimensions of the face), is a staple in our makeup routine. The new Honest Beauty Contour Kit (retail $34) is a great palette for contour’ers of any skill level, thanks to its 2 dark matte contour shades + 1 shimmer highlighter. The cream formulas are easy to blend, and you can even use just your fingers to apply. Click to shop Honest Beauty!

1 Book That Will Change Your Life (and Business)

Yes, this is yet another rave for “4-Hour Workweek” by Tim Ferriss. If you haven’t read the 4-Hour Workweek, stop whatever other book you’re currently reading and pick up this one instead. It’s that important to your life and business. For those that are unfamiliar with the 4-Hour Workweek (4HWW), the main premise is that most of us simply overwork, and that our work can be condensed into a shorter period of time if we cut out distractions and unimportant tasks, and focus on what matters most. Using the term “4-hours” is unrealistic for most of us (especially bootstrapping entrepreneurs), […]

How to Get Anything You Want (In Life and Business)

Yikes, it’s so hype-y to say, but there’s really a strategy to get anything you want in life and business. It’s often an overlooked part of our day, yet it’s always the small things that get us, right? You just have to work long and hard for whatever you want. Period. There’s no magic bullet or secret sauce for achieving any goal. Olympians train for 6 hours a day, 6-7 days a week, for 10 years (or longer) before trying for the Olympic games. CEO’s work 7-days a week for 30 years. If I want to have nice hair all […]

Am I Actually Good at Anything?

Sometimes simple doesn’t always mean obvious. Life and business is simple if you know one key thing: your strength. After being at Ryan Moran’s Freedom Fast Lane Live event in Austin, Texas last winter, it was very clear what millionaires and billionaires had in common: Knowing your strength and what you’re good at is the foundation of every business. It’s so cliche to say that we often overlook this concept. Think of it as knowing the skills you are good at, as well as the skills you’re not so good at. Would you be more likely to start a business […]

5 Natural Products You Never Knew Existed on Amazon

We’ve all been there, perusing Amazon before going to bed and finding things we never knew existed. The behemoth marketplace surprisingly has a plethora of all-natural products, some familiar powerhouses as well as several indie brands. There are a few things to keep in mind to make Amazon the best online green shopping experience, ever. 1. Search using phrases that pinpoint a specific product such as “all natural moisturizer” or “organic sunscreen” or “all natural eyelash growth serum”. Being too general will bring up a million results that may overwhelm you. 2. Read the reviews, a few 5-star, 3-star, and […]

Top Hot Pink Lipstick

What’s easier than a bold pink lipstick, some concealer, and mascara?

Here are my top favorite all-natural and cruelty-free hot pink lipsticks of the moment, with creamy formulas, easy application and no need for lipliner! Ilia Beauty lipstick in Neon Angel Reminiscent of MAC Cosmetic’s Candy Yum Yum or Nars Schiapp, Ilia Beauty’s […]

Top Hot Pink Blush

Hot pink blush has always been my go-to blush color, simply because it’s a cheek hue that works with any eyeshadow or lip color, and it matches my natural flush very well. And it’s universally flattering for any skin tone, where it can be worn sheer for a hint of color, or applied heavier for a bright flush on darker skin tones. Here are my top favorite hot pink blushes, varying in formula from cream to powder. Wear these year-round colors with some mascara and lip balm for a super quick and easy everyday face, or pair a hot pink […]
