Luminess Air Airbrush Makeup System Review

I have wanted to own a makeup airbrush system for a long time. When I was in beauty school, we learned a little bit about them and at the time, they weren’t affordable at all. A lot has changed in the world of airbrush makeup in the last decade and I love that airbrush makeup is something that anyone can have the ability to do in their own home now! It isn’t something that is just exclusive to makeup artists anymore. Luminess Air sent me an Airbrush Makeup System to review and it has been so fun to try it out!

The Goodness of Oatmeal

There are several days each week that I like to start my mornings with a bowl of oatmeal. I love how it just seems to stick to my ribs and keep me full on even my busiest of days. Oatmeal of course is full of health benefits when you eat it, but it is also full of goodness for skin too!

My skin has really thrown me for a loop lately. One day it will be nice and clear and the next will be a day full of blemishes.

How to Use Nail Stamps

I always have the hardest time coming up with things for my husband to get me for Christmas, but this year I had a great idea. I wanted a nail stamp kit! I have learned some great tips on how to use nail stamps.

First of all, some of you may be wondering what nail stamps are. Nail stamps are little plates that have different designs on them that you can stamp onto your nails. They give you awesome nail art on your nails, without having to be an artist.  [Read more…]

Absolutely Ageless

I experienced Aveeno® as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. #Aveeno®

I have been trying several Aveeno® products lately and have been pleasantly surprised with each and every one of them. Each of them have felt comfortable and familiar to my skin. The most recent Aveeno® products I tried were somewhat new to my skin, but they have been perfect!

Aveeno Absolutely Ageless on

I tried out the Aveeno® Absolutely Ageless Restorative Night Cream and Aveeno® Absolutely Ageless Intensive Renewal Serum. The reason I say that they were a bit foreign to my skin is that I haven’t really ever used products that focus on anti aging properties. It just hasn’t been something that I have been that concerned about. It wasn’t until I started using these products that I realized that it is something I should definitely be thinking about! I am not a teenager anymore. Both of these products have helped the overall look and feel of my skin. My face feels nice and moisturized. [Read more…]

Keeping Skin Moisturized this Fall

As much as I love Fall, my skin absolutely hates it! I live in a very dry climate and when the weather starts to cool down, any moisture in the air completely disappears. My skin really suffers because of it! Every year, I am on the lookout for a great way to keep my skin moisturized during the cold months. My husband’s poor skin even cracks and bleeds because it gets so dry. You can understand why it is such an important hunt to find the perfect product for us!

Thankfully, I have found the perfect solution for our dry skin for the season and the weather hasn’t even gotten too cold yet. I love the Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair Spray Moisturizer! It has 2X the moisturizing power than the Vaseline Intensive Care Essential Healing Spray Moisturizer, so it is absolutely perfect for Fall. [Read more…]

Body Wash I Can’t Live Without

I cared for my skin from the inside out with Aveeno® as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars #Aveeno®

You know when you find something in life that you absolutely love and you just want to shout it from the rooftops because you feel like you have found a diamond in the rough? THAT is exactly how I feel about my body wash. I know that probably sounds silly, but there is a reason why I am so passionate about my love of Aveeno® Daily Moisturizing Body Wash.

My Affordable Beauty Secret

When I was first married, I worked at a salon that carried a really pricey line of skincare products. I tried most of the products and really loved them, but hated paying those prices! I finally decided to only use the cleanser, so I could afford to do more than just use fancy skincare products.

When we were at a family reunion, I realized that I had forgotten my cleanser. My beloved cleanser! I mentioned it to my husband’s aunt and she told me she had some Cetaphil cleanser I could use. I hadn’t ever heard of Cetaphil before, but I was willing to try anything! I went into the bathroom to wash my face and as soon as I put the cleanser in my palm, I was shocked to find that it seemed to be just like my pricey cleanser I had been using. I promptly asked the aunt where she had gotten this cleanser and I was even more shocked to find out that I could get it at just about every store I was already shopping at for a fraction of what I was paying for my current cleanser.

I have been a Cetaphil fan ever since that day. I have really enjoyed using more of their products they offer as well, including their lotion, moisturizing cream, cleansing bars, and cleansing cloths. Every time I try a new product, I am impressed with how high of quality it is and how great it makes my skin feel.

Radiant, Beautiful Skin

I cared for my skin from the inside out with Aveeno® as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars #Aveeno

It is the time of year where the weather really starts to take a toll on our skin. As the weather gets colder and more dry, skin dries and becomes more unhealthy. Using a great moisturizer is really important all year, but especially during the Fall and Winter seasons. I love how soft and moisturized my skin feels after using the right moisturizer on my face.

Recently, I tried Aveeno® Positively Radiant® Daily Moisturizer for the first time and I was incredibly impressed. I have tried many moisturizers in my life and this one was the by far the fastest acting moisturizer I have ever used. My face feels soft as soon as I apply this moisturizer.

Easy Halloween Nail Art

I seriously have no idea why I like Halloween so much. It is a pretty weird holiday and I absolutely hate being scared. It makes no sense at all that I am a fan of Halloween, but I just can’t help it! I love Halloween! Because I think that any Halloween lover should wear their love of Halloween on their sleeve… or fingernails rather, I made the cutest easy Halloween nail art tutorial ever!

I mean, how can you not love those tiny little eyes and candy corns on these nails?! I am basically just tooting my own horn over here, but I am obsessed with these nails. I think one reason that I am so obsessed with them is because of just how easy they were to do!

To do your own Halloween nail art, you need… [Read more…]
