My son picks my makeup! Vlog style

The adventures of Aaron and mom shopping at Target! I know… so exciting right? Haha. Well it was exciting for me! In this episode of my kid picks my makeup, Aaron chooses a beautiful palette by Maybelline and a crazy wild color palette. I can’t wait to try them both out.

Stick around for this 3 part series. I’ll be swatching and testing out the 2 palettes he got me. Which one should I showcase first?

By the way, he was so excited about that Coca Cola lip smacker. That excitement immediately turned into regret when he realized (or so he thought) it was a “lipstick”. LOL!

Date night makeup look | Smokey Eyes

Hello Beauties!!

Did you miss me!? I know, I know… it’s been a hot minute since I’ve been on here. I took some time off and now I’m super excited to get back into the blogging game.

So this year has been a little crazy. Wouldn’t you agree? Amidst all the chaos of 2020, my husband and I celebrated our 12 year wedding Anniversary. If you ask me, it came at the perfect time! It fell on the weekend that our city opened back up from the Covid lockdown. Hallelujah!! Our most favorite restaurant (Larsen’s Grill) was open for business and taking reservations. So, of course it was necessary to have a much-needed dinner date night!

I love doing a full face of glam when we go out on a date. So I thought I would share the look I created. If you make it to the end you’ll also see all of the mouth watering yumminess that we ate!

Eye Brow Tutorial | Anastasia Beverly Hills

20130816-160553.jpg

Hello Beauties!

Today I’m bringing you a brow tutorial using all Anastasia Beverly Hills products. I am really impressed with her products, so I hope you find this useful.

Here are the steps to achieve the look:

1.) Tweeze any stray hairs with the Anastasia tweezers and brush out the brow.
2.) To get a clean edge, line the bottom of your brow with the matte side of the brow duality pencil.
3.) Take the brow pen (mine is in universal deep) and start filling in the brow leaving the inner most part blank. (You can use light stokes to fill in that section if desired.)
4.) With the angled brush, dab it into the lighter color in the brow powder duo (mine is in brunette) and use this to lightly fill in the front of the brow. Also, with the matte side of the brow duality pencil, line the upper brow to give it a clean edge.
5.) Blend the top and bottom brow duality pencil lines with your finger or a brush.
6.) Set all the hairs in place with the clear brow gel.

All finished!!

Till the next one lovelies!

Red, white and blue Fourth of July/ Independence Day inspired makeup look

Hello gorgeous!

I know I’m a day behind, but I just wanted to share this fun Fourth of July inspired look. Obviously I didn’t go out with this, it was just fun to create a look to go with Independence Day! 🙂

My son also had a blast watching the fireworks at Shepherd of the Hills church. Every year they have a huge celebration and my husband and I have gone for the past 12 years. I guess you can say it’s a family tradition and it was so awesome to see my son’s face light up as the fireworks went off! Every time they burst he would scream “BOOM”! It was the cutest thing 🙂

Hope you all had a safe and happy fourth!

Till the next one, Laugh often and Love always!
