The Beauty Blogging Hot List



Before I get into all of the good on here…I wanted to recognize a few people that rock! Big thanks to Amy at for adding the styling flair to my set up today. Through her one of a kind creative event styling process she bring’s more than a table of esthetically beautiful sweets,  instead  she add ‘s to it with a unique and personalized story.

And also- the lovely Shauna, owner of who created the beautiful necklace I wore on the show. Big thanks!


Birchbox Beauty Subscription- $10.00 per month

This is one of the sample services I subscribe to. For $10.00 per month, you get a hand-selected mix of deluxe samples with an occasional full-size item. My last box came with a full-size Stila waterproof eyeliner (among other things) which I was very happy about because they cost $22.00 by themselves. It feels like Christmas each month.

Beauty Blender — $19.95
This is a tool every makeup artist should have in her kit!  Every time I use it on a client they want one! It is a “patent-pending elliptical shape that makes application foolproof by allowing you to access hard-to-reach areas with stunning ease. Its suede texture is sensual to the touch and its unique curves fit the contours of your face, leaving your make up dazzling and undetectable.  Beauty Blender is latex free, non-allergenic and odor free.” Other than the fact that is blends makeup like none other…it is pink! How cute. Also- if you go to (where I bought mine) you can usually get a better deal than anywhere because you get 10% back on your purchase and they are always doing other special deals.

Amp MD Skin Roller — $199.00 (comes with roller and serum capsules)
One of the best beauty tools I have ever had the opportunity to try, and believe me, I have tried tons. The AMP MD Skin Roller from Rodan + Fields a “micro-needle roller that safely and painlessly creates tiny micro-channels in the skin’s upper, protective layers. These tiny holes not only stimulate more collagen production, but they provide better delivery of the Rodan + Fields Anti-Age therapy.” I saw a huge difference in my skin in just one day, but I have also seen women with lines above their lips see remarkable results. I believe this is good for women is their 20’s to women in their 70’s! ALSO- if you are interested in becoming a consultant for Rodan and Fields, contact Becky Skipper for more information.

ELF Studio Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder — $3.00
This reminds of a Nars blush and bronzing palette that I love except that this is only $3.00! It goes on smoothly, doesn’t leave a mess and has great staying power. Did I mention it is only $3.00?

Boscia Luminizing Black Mask — $34.00
Without a doubt my new favorite mask. You might be thinking it looks like black tar…I agree with you, but it is actually a mineral rich mask with “powerful antioxidants that shrink pores, firm skin, and reduce inflammation.” I will warn you though, you need to keep this away from you eyebrows, because as this dry’s it was act like a hard wax and you can accidentally remove brows.

Organic Coconut Oil — $5.99
Recently I have become a fan of this organic Coconut oil for so many reasons. It is a fantastic moisturizer for the body, hair and nails, plus can even act as a great makeup remover. It also smells fantastic.

Naked Palette 2 From Urban Decay — $50.00
This has been the most buzzed about eye shadow palette of the decade. It has a huge following of women at any age and sells out quickly. I like it because of the range of 12 neutral colors with generous amounts of the actual eye shadows.  For me this is a staple item to keep around, and I love that the shadows are all in one package – it makes life more simple.


NOTE- Some of these products were given to me and some of them I purchased. All thoughts and opinions about these products are 100% mine and I was not payed or even asked to show these on the show. I just simple love them. Last but not least- there are a few affiliate links on here, one for Birchbox and one for, using these helps support this site. Thanks lovelies.
