Nothing like a little makeup talk to help brighten your Monday! Recently I have felt like I have been in a little bit of a makeup rut. When you are constantly working, you get caught into the the daily grind, and that generally means nailing down your routine. The problem with routines is that it eliminates adventure! And we all could use an adventure now and them, even if it is just with our makeup! (more…)
Over the past year I have become very interested in natural beauty products. It all started when I started doing some intense research on what ingredients lie in our everyday beauty products. My findings were actually quite shocking! Ironically, the products that are supposed to “increase our beauty” actually housed some of the worst ingredients. Truth be told, our beauty products could actually be making us look worse! (more…)
Foundation: Urban Decay All Nighter
Out of all the makeup products out there in the beauty industry, I have always been the most intrigued and excited by foundations. It wasn’t until late college that I really began discovering and playing around with all that the cosmetic companies had to offer. And since that short time, I have definitely spent the most money on base products. I can’t even tell you how many different foundations I have tried.

Is there such a thing as love at first scent? Because when I first smelled these products, I thought I was in heaven! It takes a lot to impress me with a hair product. A lot of them are overpriced for what they do. But throw the name Mermaid on a product, and you bet I will do a double take!
Hey girl hey!!
I am feeling slightly hyper today, and I think it could be because I have basically eaten an entire bag of dried mango slices and I am probably on a sugar overload! But that’s okay because sometimes a nice sugar boost is just what we need!
Happy Monday Everyone!
One of my favorite parts of working for a makeup company was listening to the beauty mistakes and lessons of many different women on a regular basis. I would have the cutest little old ladies come up to me and offer me their stories and secrets that have come with the many years of acquired beauty knowledge. “Say out of the sun,” “Use SPF.” or even “don’t forget your neck!” The main thing I learned from all my little old lady friends was that if you want to look your best at every age, you need to adapt beauty practices now that will help you in years to come!
