Nine. That’s the number of makeup products that I use on a daily basis, and sometimes that number is two. Sure, I’m all about the normal reasons such as saving money, energy, time (time is a biggie for me). But I also like looking as natural as possible.
Every year I procrastinate getting a wish list together. It's like I suddenly have no wants or desires when someone asks me what I want for Christmas. Then the holidays pass, and BAM! I'm able to find all sorts of things that I should've put on my holiday wish list (what's up with that?). Well, this year I've made my list early and thought, "Hey, these things are pretty cool. I'm sure my girlfriends would love these!" So, here's a list of 10 Beauty Items you need to add to your wish list, get for your besties, or gift to yourself (#justsayin):
Have you ever noticed how some eyeshadows just look totally “meh” on you, while others make you think, “Wow, I really do have lovely eyes.” That’s a little bit of color theory coming to play.

Finally summer is here! Well, maybe not technically but the warm weather allowed me my first beach trip of the year. There I was toes in the sand, the sun shining down on me, hands on hips, taking in a deep breath of the fresh salty air and that’s when I realized, I was not ready to be at the beach (cue fast dash back to my towel, hat, & coverup). We’ve all experienced that moment when we’ve realized that we haven’t quite prepared like we should’ve (like when you're so regretting that second bowl of ice cream as you try to squeeze into your swim suit).
Doing the same thing day in and day out typically leads to one thing -- boredom. So if you've been feeling very "meh" about putting on makeup, there's (luckily) some very easy things that you can do so that you're makeup routine is something that you actually look forward to.
