Concealing Blemishes With Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Liquid Foundation and Concealer

estee lauder double wear foundation

Sponsored Post: Since I am pregnant, my skin has been absolutely hating me. I mean, I went from having a blemish every once in a while, to trying to keep blemishes from having babies on a daily basis. I am pulling out all the stops with skincare that I can as a pregnant person, but still, a tinted moisturizer just isn't going to cut it right now. So to even out my skin tone and conceal blemishes, I picked up the Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Liquid foundation and concealer. This foundation has been a favorite since I discovered it years ago. Back in the day (10 years ago) I freelanced for Estee Lauder on their makeup artist team and this medium to full coverage foundation was a major hit for myself and most clients. I use to have pretty bad acne at that time, and … [Read more...]

3 Spring Beauty Essentials For Busy Women

beauty essentials for busy women

In my makeup and beauty obsessed opinion, there are a lot of spring beauty essentials, but in order to keep it simple, how about we just keep it to three. If I didn't, you would read this post, and there would be like 100, which would be overwhelming and totally not do-able for most of the female human race. Also, I am drinking coffee...so if I sound hyper, I am. When I think of spring beauty, it's bright lips, floral fragrances, and sunny days that require my shades to make their way out of the closet. These three are also just the beauty trick to make people think I actually spent time on myself that day. Let me break it down for you. Bright lips paired with stylish glasses can instantly make you look cool while hiding the fact that you didn't really do your makeup and your … [Read more...]

I have medium length hair, or I guess, shoulder length to be exact, and beyond a top knot loaded with bobby pins or a low pony, it can be annoying to create a cute hairstyle. But now that the season has changed, and the sun is shining more in Austin, TX, I feel more motivated to change the mood of my hair. So, for my medium length hair twins out there, here is an easy spring half updo that's fancy enough to wear to a wedding or casual enough to rock at your child's next play date. I wore this to the second option with zero shame.     Hair Prep Before I styled my hair, you need to know that I actually washed it that day. This information is significant because if you have followed along with me on my blog, you know that I only wash my hair every 7 days. … [Read more...]

Get Graphic With Your Eyeliner

graphic eyeliner trend 2015

Graphic eyeliner is one of those trends this spring 2015 season that can either look cool or completely creepy. I am hoping this makeup tutorial falls in the second category. I mean, I liked seeing all of the new fun and expressive makeup trends being rocked on the runway, but some of it...like the crazy graphic liner, needs to stay only for the stage.  So today we are toning down the trend, and I will show you a way to do it without scaring your friends, family, and children. If you aren't familiar with the graphic eyeliner trend, it's basically just being more creative with your liner. I have seen it done in some very interesting ways, but today we are going to make it similar to a vintage eyeliner look, minus the major swoopy tale at the end. I am also going to show you how … [Read more...]
