First Try: BareMinerals Gen Nude Collection

Before any of you start thinking I am a pro at everything, let me tell you a little story. I am not a pro at everything (shocker)! I was so excited to bring to you a new video series I will be doing once a month. It is called First Try and I will be trying new products for the first time on camera and sharing my opinion of those products and seeing how user friendly they are on the first try. Well the first one is coming to you today… sort of.

First Try: BareMinerals Gen Nude Collection

As you can see, I filmed my video and tried the products. The problem is that when I went to go edit the video, there was no sound. NO SOUND! This is just a happy reminder that not all bloggers can afford to pay for a film crew and have to rely on their own knowledge to do just about everything. Sadly, that came back to bite me this time around and I honestly have no idea why it did that! The good news is that I did try these products and really liked them and would love to still give you the info about them so you can go give them a try too! [Read more…]

Light and Simple Summer Makeup Tutorial

Summer is in full swing! As much as I love the summertime, I don’t always love the hot temperatures that seem to melt off all of my makeup. I have learned over the years to keep my makeup pretty light when it is hot outside. It is tempting to just skip the makeup all together, but I always feel so much better when I have makeup on my face. Even a small amount of makeup can boost my confidence enough that it is worth wearing makeup when the temperature is hot. I have come up with an easy summer makeup look that is light and simple. It takes me less than 10 minutes from start to finish to put on each day and I love how it feels!

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!

Girl Loves Glam Beauty Product Awards 2015

I have wanted to honor my favorite beauty products for quite some time now. I share my monthly favorite things in my videos, but I wanted some way of shouting from the rooftops, which products impressed me the very most each year. Then the thought occurred to me, beauty magazines give out their own beauty product awards each year, why can’t a beauty blog do the same?! That was when the Girl Loves Glam Beauty Product Awards were born!

Makeup Organizing Tips

Let’s face it, bathrooms aren’t made for the amounts of makeup that I have, but I don’t think bathrooms are even made for the amounts of makeup that the everyday woman has either! The space and compartments just aren’t there. That is why I think it is so important to use the space you do have very wisely! In the new house we are in, there is roughly ZERO storage for my makeup. I had to come up with something creative to keep my makeup accessible, without it looking like clutter. Here are some of my makeup organizing tips that I learned while getting my makeup organizing system figured out.
