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.

Easy Spring Lip & Cheek Pairings

Spring is officially here and so is the time to pop out your beautiful bright colors. The most popular way to play with spring shades in makeup is with lipstick. A nice pop of color on the lips is go-to for spring but what blush do you pair that fun spring lipstick shade with? Here are a few spring blush and lipstick pairings. But, first some tips. It’s been said to pair your lipstick with a blush in the same color family, but be careful not to look too matchy-matchy. You want the pairing to compliment each other and not […]

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 […]

Brand Spotlight: Maya Chia Beauty

We are so excited to kick off our Brand Spotlight series with Susanne Norwitz, creator and founder of Maya Chia. Harvard educated with a true heart of gold and passion for her craft, Susanne was gracious to take time from her busy schedule to sit down and chat with Kate about her incredible line of skin care. With so many brands promising to do so many things to your skin yet many times leaving us with no results and disappointed we got caught up in the hype. Maya Chia is far from hype and genius marketing. Maya Chia starts with […]

Guide to Kjaer Weis

One of my favorite eco-luxe makeup brands is Kjaer Weis. Clean beauty meets real performance with its high-end makeup products that also happen to have some gorgeous color collections. There is so much to love about their line! The first thing you may notice is that Kjaer Weis comes packaged in some of the most eco-friendly, yet chic packaging around. Its beautiful metal cases are designed to be refillable to minimize waste. As much as I love the gorgeous packaging, I have an insider tip: I find it much easier (and cheaper) to purchase its makeup refills and house them […]

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? A bright pink pout not only keeps you looking fresh and tan (unlike most red or berry lips that actually wash out the complexion, and more bronzer is needed to bring the warmth back), it also doubles as a fantastic sheer pink cream blush in a pinch. 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 […]
