New Year’s Eve Makeup Tutorial

Since tomorrow is New Year's Eve, I thought a little, easy makeup tutorial was in store in case you've got something special planned!  I love this look.  It's super easy and really different.  It's not really something I would wear on a day to day basis but for a special party, I would for sure.   Bare with me on the pics, I got a new camera flash and it's going to take some trouble shooting to figure it out!  I'm pretty sure I look like a good candidate for Twilight Part 10.  However, this … [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!

Today I am going to … [Read more...]

Finding the perfect lip gloss and lipstick is paramount, am I right?  How many times have you bought a lip gloss and it ends up being the wrong shade, too light, or no staying power?  For me it's often.  To be honest I'm always compromising my "beauty values" for lip products.  I know all the chemicals that are in most lipsticks but yet I still give in when I think I've found just the right color. Let me just say, compromising on quality when it comes to lip products is really a bad idea.  … [Read more...]
