I might be one of the few people in this day & age that doesn’t enjoy shopping online as much as I love going in-store. I love to roam aisles and peruse. If you’re an in-person shopper like myself, I have an app for you!
I discovered the shopkick app about a month ago while I was doing some holiday shopping & it’s a great way to rack up points…. err, kicks! When you shop, you get kicks that you can redeem at some of your favorite retailers. My gift card of choice? Starbucks of course!
You can earn kicks in many different ways… browsing content and watching videos in the app, walking into stores, using a linked credit card for purchases, scanning items in store or your receipts, or by inviting friends! So easy peasy!
I was at Target last month racking up kicks & I picked up some awesome Sally Hansen Color Therapy polishes. I’m in love! I wear pale pink or white on my nails 99% of the time so I love trying new products and formulas! I picked up the color “Well, well, well” and its my current favorite! This polish is uniquely infused with argan oil and doesn’t need a base coat so the oil complex can directly contact your bare nails! Combined with Sally Hansen Color Therapy Top Coat.. & it’s perfect! I suffer from extremely dry skin, especially my cuticles (especially x2 now that it’s winter too!) so finishing off with Sally Hansen Color Therapy Nail & Cuticle Oil kept me so comfortable this past holiday season. I like to keep this elixir in my purse and reapply as needed!
Hi my gorgeous loves! I filmed this tutorial shortly after the 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, obviously totally inspired by the gorgeous makeup look this year but after initial concept approval from the brand I was working with, in the 25th hour they decided I couldn’t use the VS name in my video. SO frustrating to water my video down to a generic look as this is one of my favorite inspired looks I’ve ever done, I worked SO hard on it, AND I think I got the look pretty close! You can be the judge of that :) I wish I could have regrouped and published this video the way I wanted but – as I’m sure you’ve heard.. I’m pregnant! I just did not have the energy to go back to the drawing board for them after such a long back-and-forth process. There’s nothing I can do at this point so I’m going to try to stop being upset about it and tell you all about the look and inspiration here on the blog! :)
This year’s (err.. last year) Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show was my favorite in years! I feel like they really got that early 2000s magical essence that has seemed to disappear over the years. The girls looked so gorgeous, the designs were fantastic, & I loved the musical guests (especially Bruno Mars!). Let’s talk about the makeup look though *heart eyes* !!! As much as I love the way VS models are styled, the makeup is never wearable for me and my huge eyes. If I don’t have eyeliner on, it doesn’t even look like I have makeup on so I love that the girls were rockin’ a winged liner this year! So flirty and perfect for Paris.
Hi loves! I finally cracked open my Anastasia Beverly Hills Master Palette by Mario after it collecting dust for so long – & wanted to share a tutorial with you! It’s such a gorgeous palette, & I’m a huge sucker for neutral/earthy tones so it’s right up my alley! I don’t think this palette is available for purchase anymore but I know so many of you own this beauty so I hope that this tutorial is super helpful for you! If not, these tones are very dupe-able!
I’d always get so excited for CVS visits ever since I was a kid, they have everything! Snacks, magazines to thumb through, stationary, and as I got older – my interest in the beauty aisles evolved with me! From the days of strawberry glitter lipgloss to now enjoying products like dermatologist-approved skincare and luxurious cosmetics, I still feel a pang of excitement when it’s time for a CVS run! There has been a couple changes over the years though. For one, they’ve banned tobacco from their shelves and they’ve also increased their beauty offerings! Win-win! CVS is the destination for drugstore beauty, no longer just a place to pick up your prescriptions. With more than 7,600 stores nationwide, it’s very likely that there is one within 3 miles of your home. Off the top of my head, I can think of three locations within a one-mile radius of my home – score!
I popped in recently to replenish some of my favorite skincare products and I was so pleased to find every single item in my makeup-removing-skin-cleansing routine! You’ve heard me talk about all of these items before, & the fact that I still love them shows that they really stood the test of time for me. Select stores will provide personalized consultations and product advice from Beauty Consultants, who go through specialized training on several different topics – including skincare! So if you have some questions or issues that I can’t provide help with here, help is just a short (3 mile ;) ) drive away!
Right as November hits, I realize that Winter is my favorite season – not Fall! Maybe it’s my deep love for the holidays that really takes over the whole season. Christmas decorations are everywhere, jewel-toned makeup and clothes line the shelves and so do all things sparkly – glitter, sequins, metallic eye pigments, just so much eye candy!
I created this quick and easy makeup look today and wanted to share a few of the new Revlon ColorStay™ Eye Collection and Kiss™ Balm products that I used and have become staples in my makeup bag.
