Facial Cleansing Wipes Reviews: Battle of the Brands

Ever wonder what the best facial cleansing wipes are? Do you find yourself searching online for reviews of different products and wish you could just find a friend who had tried a whole bunch of products that could compare them all of you? Well, you are in luck because I am going to be THAT friend for you! I am SO excited to announce a new series I am bringing you… Battle of the Brands! I will be coming once a month with a category and will be testing several brands of that product. Some of them you can look forward to seeing in the future include drugstore foundation, mascara, long wear lipstick, and concealer. To kick things off, I tested facial cleansing wipes!

So, how does it work? I came up with my own little scoring system to grade each of the facial cleansing wipes on more than me just saying, “This one was good” or “This one was no good”. I tested [Read more…]

Color Street Gift Wrapping

I am a Color Street Independent Stylist. Color Street nails are nail strips, but they are made of 100% nail polish. They are really thin, so they don’t feel like something bulky is on your nails. They don’t require any heat or cutting to apply them either. But the best part is that they last 2 weeks (and sometimes longer) on your hands and toes! They come in a variety of solid colors, prints, French tips, glitter, and seasonal prints. They have so many different styles that they work for just about anyone, no matter what their personal style might be. You can see my application video and learn more about Color Street nails by reading this blog post.

These would be the perfect stocking stuffer, gift for your mom, sister, wife, girlfriend, best friend, daughter, pretty much anyone on your list! You can shop for them on the Color Street Glam website. The French tips are buy 1 get 1 free and ALL other styles are buy 3 get 1 free!

Here are some ways that you can gift them!

Glam Fall Makeup Look

This shop has been compensated by ACUVUE® Brand Contact Lenses and Collective Bias, Inc. All opinions are mine alone. #TreatYourEyes2 #TreatYourEyes #CollectiveBias

I love making my makeup a little more moody as the seasons change. After a summer full of light and airy makeup, I am ready to bring on the rich colors of Fall. This glam Fall makeup look can easily be worn as an everyday look if it is paired with a little less dramatic lip color and looks fantastic for a night out with an even more dramatic lip color! I love how regal it feels, without being over the top and difficult to recreate.

When I do my makeup like this and really try to focus on my eye makeup, it is important that I wear contacts. I have experienced doing my makeup in the past, only to have to wear my glasses and it just kind of takes away the effect! I find my ACUVUE® Brand Contact Lenses just as important in my beauty routine as my actual beauty products. I have absolutely loved these ACUVUE®  VITA® Brand Contact lenses that were so highly recommended to me during my Target Optical® visit.

To create this eye makeup look, I used one eyeshadow palette with many neutral options. I love having a palette like this because I can find every color I need in one place. I also used a liquid eyeliner pen and volumizing mascara. [Read more…]

What to Expect When Getting Permanent Makeup

I used to fill in my eyebrows every single day. I did it so many times, that I thought that I had gotten it down to the point where it didn’t take very long. Then one day I was trying to get out the door and I was just going to fill in my brows and put on some mascara before leaving the house because I didn’t have time to worry about anything else. Those few steps ended up taking way longer than they should have. That was when I finally decided to start saving to get permanent makeup done on my brows!

28 Day Challenge Results

This post is sponsored by Olay. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own. #Olay28Day #ad

About a month ago, I took the Olay 28 Day Challenge. The challenge was to use their products for 28 days and see if I could notice any difference in my skin over that time, by incorporating a few new products and creating that healthy habit each day. My skin goes through phases of being pretty bad, but when I first started the challenge my skin wasn’t horrible. I didn’t have a lot of problems with breaking out, but my skin did feel very dry and it just looked tired!

What are Color Street Nails?

I am an Independent Stylist for Color Street nails. I am a Senior Director with the company and have been with the company since they launched.

What is Color Street? You may have thought that very thought as you have seen Color Street nails on someone. I was lucky enough to have that question answered before the company launched, when I decided to join the company as a founding stylist! Color Street nails are 100% nail polish strips that are incredibly easy to apply and last for roughly 2 weeks. I am officially hooked!

I haven’t ever felt like I have had consistently nice looking fingernails until I learned about Color Street. It was always too time consuming or too expensive to do my nails before. Now I am able to bust out a full manicure in about 5 minutes and I don’t have any dry time! Watch this video to see just how easy and fast applying Color Street nails is! [Read more…]

Powerful Oil Blends

Over the last couple of years, I have really started to focus on treating my skin with more natural products than I ever have before. I have really enjoyed finding products that aren’t necessarily the most popular things you find on the beauty shelves, but are better for my body!

I have learned throughout the years that I care more and more about what ingredients I am putting in and on my body. I used to think that you could only control what food you put in your body, but I have loved learning more about homemade cosmetics to put on my body as well!
