Summer Date Night Look (Melt-Proof)

Summer is becoming a beast and while we want to spend time outdoors, there’s a true issue of our makeup melting off! Date night becomes a challenge because it’s still 80+ degrees in the evening and what’s a girl to do!? Here are my melt-proof trips for summer date nights. You might still get sweaty and some makeup might dissipate (we’re not using permanent paint here, folks), but you won’t look like this below. Hope you like the tips and find them useful. nbsp;   Skin Prep I start prepping my skin with Amazonia Skincare Active Reversal Treatment Daily Wrinkle […]

No-Makeup Makeup for Summer

Happy Summer, everyone, and this means no-makeup makeup until Fall! It’s late May and I’m already sweating the moment that I step outside! On extremely hot days aka all of the summer, I like to keep my makeup pretty minimal. I’ll do something simple during the day and dress it up at night with some eyeliner and a bold lip. This look is obviously pretty laid back and carefree. A few products and a few minutes and ta-da, you’re ready for a day at the park and in the heat! Base I started by applying Kari Gran Three Six Five […]

Fresh Summer Beauty Look

Summer time is upon us, and what’s not to love!? Your skin gets tanner, days get longer, and the makeup options are endless. I love bronzed glowing skin and bronzed lids with a glossy pink lip for Summer time beauty. This isn’t really a pool or beach day look, but more of a fun daytime or evening Summer look. Hope you guys enjoy! Skin Prep I always prep my skin to make sure it’s well hydrated so that the makeup has a smooth canvas to go over. My current favorite is the Free Love Beauty Wildchild Illuminating Oil. Then, I […]

Top 5 Natural Products at Trader Joes

If Trader Joe’s started charging membership like Costco, I’d pay for it in a heartbeat. Trader Joe’s is a staple in life, if not life itself when you just can’t deal with grocery stores or Whole Foods (hey, we love Whole Foods too, but we also like to save money for things like when we break toes). I realized yesterday why I love Trader Joe’s so much and it has to be in this order: coffee samples where they don’t even care if you sample it twice, the super nice people who work there, and the selection of everything you […]

Top 5 Natural Brands at Target

You all know the wise saying by now that goes something like this: “If you’re sick, go to Target. If you’re sad, go to Target. If you’re tired, go to Target. If you’re happy, go to Target. If you’re dead, go to Target.” That said, Target has been expanding their natural brands quite extensively over the past few years. Every few months, it seems like they are adding something new to the store that causes a stir of oohs and ahs. You are probably familiar with many of the natural brands at Target at this point if you have been […]

5 Best Eyeshadows for Spring

Spring is trying to break through the grips of winter around here which means we are all changing up our makeup color schemes. Spring is the perfect time to brighten up our looks. Today, we will quickly share with you our top 5 favorite eyeshadows for spring. Eyeshadow during the daytime in Spring is often optional as we are mainly focusing on our skin and lip color so we can quickly head out the door to play outside. But, eyeshadow doesn’t have to be hard. We often think about having to pick at least two colors and blend expertly to […]

Bright Spring Inspired Makeup Tutorial

For most of you, can you feel that new zing in the air? If so, then guess what? Spring is finally here! Spring is very short lived in my neck of the woods. It quickly goes from allergies to heat stroke, all within two months. But, I still love the warmer weather full of sunkissed skin, bright lipstick and if you live in the south, big hair. Anyway, one season at a time. I’m here to show you my favorite spring-time look. As always, I gravitate towards letting my natural skin shine through and just complimenting my face with a […]

Fast & Easy Beauty

Fast and easy makeup is what we all yearn for when we have busy lives. Especially when you become a mom, beauty takes a backseat to everything else! We often don’t get to shower or eat like normal people, let alone slowly blend in our eyeshadows. However, feeling pretty is still essential. We were once women before we became selfless moms who cared about how we looked. None of that is dead now that we have little lives to worry about. So, I’m here to share some of my daily beauty staples. I keep it very simple by using products […]

Romantic Valentine’s Makeup Look

How many of you love Valentine’s Day for the fun fact that you get to put on extra makeup? For my Valentine’s Day look I wanted to create a soft smokey romantic look with a classic light pink glossy lip. I love a bold red look as well but for me, Valentine’s is more soft and romantic. Here’s how I created this look.   Skin Prep First, I spritzed my face with the Teri Miyahira Radiant Beauty Mist to amplify any moisture lost during cleansing. Then, I applied the MOA Aphrodite Facial Oil to help keep my skin feeling supple […]
