Mascara is my absolute must-If I were stranded on a desert island and could only bring a few things-mascara would be there!  As you've seen from my previous makeup tutorial posts-I like a pretty bold lash and while I have good lashes to begin with-they aren't great.  I've scouted out the most effective mascara, while keeping it natural in ingredients.  That's where Tarte Cosmetics come in!  I've been using Tarte mascara for a while now.  I've come to the bottom of the tube of each mascara … [Read more...]

What’s In My Natural Makeup Bag…

I've had lots of questions about my daily makeup routine.  I am a minimalist-I like to keep it simple.  My husband might argue I keep it a bit too simple!  But, for an everyday look I do have my natural faves packed in my makeup bag!
