My Easy Makeup Look

Posted in Health & Beauty by

How simple or intricate is your makeup routine?

I know it varies for everyone. Some just need moisturizer and mascara before walking out the door. Or, they choose to not even wear makeup. I wish I was in that category! For others, a full beat is required. And that’s okay!

Lately, I’ve usually put on something, so I’m not scaring folks or having them think I’m always sleep deprived. I can’t always keep my sunglasses on. LOL.

But here are my go-to’s for an easy look, for just going out, or when I have to do these video conference calls (this is a new thing for me).

Posted in Make It Up by

Like many of you, I don’t have long eyelashes. Thank goodness for mascara! But there was a span of months when I didn’t wear any.

Make It Up: Neutrals!

Posted in Make It Up by

I was supposed to write this months ago, but no time like the present!

I’m all about a neutral lip.  For me, it’s a great touch to my beauty routine.  I’m still not ready to confidently rock a bold lip yet, but I’m always eager to try a new shade of nude!  Every time I go to the makeup store/counter, I always check out the lip products.  Lately, I’ve been good about walking away, but usually I’ll buy a new nude lip product.
