Ardell Magnetic Lashes | Review & How I Got Them To Work For Me

This post contains affiliate links. See my disclosure here. If you follow me on my makeup Instagram account, then you may have picked up on the fact that I despise full-band false lashes. I find them absolutely uncomfortable and hate wearing them. So, to still add some drama to my looks, I’ve been using Ardell or Kiss lash trios for the last year or so. Those are comfortable to wear and I love them, but they do take quite some time to apply. So I was thrilled when I saw these Ardell magnetic lashes! They looked so easy peasy, comfortable, […]


Eyebrow Tutorial | How I Do Mine & What Products I Use

I’d say that out of everything I do, I definitely get the most comments on my eyebrows. People seem to love them, so I thought I would share my eyebrow tutorial with you guys. This video is from a Facebook LIVE stream that I did about five months ago.  I know the lighting is super wonky, so please forgive me, but the info is solid and I do a pretty decent job of explaining myself as I go. Since I did record this several months ago, the products I use have changed. You can find a description of what I […]

Dare to Create Palette by Morphe | Review + 5 Different Looks

This Christmas I had no plans of asking for any makeup, but my poor mother-in-law loves to shop for girls, so when she asked for gift ideas for me, I polled one of my favorite Facebook makeup groups and the Morphe Dare to Create palette was suggested.  #longestrunonsentenceever Click here to see what else I got for Christmas!   The color scheme and layout intrigued me enough, but was it good?

Holiday Makeup Look | 3 Cool Tones

Holiday Makeup Look | 3 Cool Tones

Before we get into the makeup look, I just wanna share a couple links to my favorite Christmas flash mobs. I honestly have no idea why I love flash mobs, specifically Christmas ones, so much, but I do. I think they’re so fun and spontaneous and the performers had to muster up so much courage to do it. And it just makes me so emotional to see the audience signing along. This first one literally brings me to tears every time. It has over 6 million views and I’m pretty sure I’m responsible for a quarter of them because I’ve […]


Holiday Makeup Look | 2 Candy Cane Eye Liner

Holiday Makeup Look | 2 Candy Cane Eye Liner

After starting to go live on Facebook for my Halloween looks, I got tagged in so many candy cane eye liner videos on Facebook. And it’s finally that time of year! Before we get started… I’d like to offer a word of advice. This is definitely one of those looks that you can get wrapped up in and obsess over. You can literally spend an hour going over it again and again to get the lines perfect. And then you’re running late for your party because it took you three times as long as you thought it would. My advice: don’t sacrifice […]

Think sparkle, shimmer, glitter, and red lipstick 💄 That was the inspiration for this look! I wanted something pretty and extra but still simple to do. I went with timeless winged liner, a pearly highlight, and contoured cheeks. And while my (overdrawn) lips are obviously eye catching, the real fun is in the glittery silver eyeshadow! To achieve this look, […]

2017 Halloween Looks

2017 Halloween Looks

This Halloween season, I really delved into creating Halloween looks. This was a first for me, as I usually stick to traditional makeup looks; however, I really found myself enjoying it! Really allowing my creative juices to flow felt great and I loved the amount of focus and concentration each look took. As a mom, I do too many things mindlessly or while on auto-pilot – so it felt good to use some brain power. Just as a disclaimer, I am not at all trying to make it out like these are original looks. I drew inspiration from several different […]
