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.
I rolled out of bed this morning and on my way to the bathroom I saw the crazy mess of hair on my head - you know the one, where one side is sticking straight up and the rest is just pure craziness. Waking up with perfectly imperfect hair that says, "Yea, I woke up like this" would be a dream. There's something so irresistible about effortless tousled hair. Luckily, we can pretend it happened that way (I won't tell, if you don't).
We all try to cram so many things into our daily routines that our minds put certain tasks on autopilot to prevent mental overload. So it's not really surprising that you probably don't think much about washing your hair - you just do it. But washing your hair the wrong way, too much or not enough can have some ugly consequences. So, I'm going to tell you what no one tells you about washing your hair.
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):
I think one of the biggest challenges with makeup is getting your skin to look amazing without looking like you've packed on layers and layers of products. Whenever I do makeup, I always try to draw attention to a person's lovely features, instead of drawing attention to the makeup (after all, you're fabulous so why shouldn't you get all of the compliments instead of your makeup).
So, I created a video makeup tutorial to show you how to get perfect skin and how to overcome some of the most common issues that we face because of our application techniques and product choices.
