I’m SO excited about today’s post because I’m going to show you my makeup routine using pretty much ONLY Too Faced cosmetics products! If you’ve followed my blog for a decent length of time I’m sure you’ve seen me mention Too Faced plenty in Instagram stories – and even back in THIS blog post from 2015! Jeez we’re digging back through the archives today… anyways let’s get on with it, I want to show you my everyday makeup look using these Too Faced best sellers!
Now – you probably know I am a very BUSY girl. I have a bunch of jobs, between my burgeoning Real Estate career, my day job in marketing at a nutritional supplement company, this here blog, and oh I dunno – nurturing my marriage. 🙂 Because of that I feel like I’ve become pretty good at getting ready and doing my makeup in a hurry. I HAVE to get out of the house in the morning on time, but I still want to feel confident and pretty. There are tons of tips and tricks I’ve learned to getting this feat done, and I want to share them with all of you! Introducing BUSY GIRL BEAUTY.
Along with this I’m also SO excited to finally announce that I am now a Senegence LipSense distributor! I assume you’ve heard of LipSense by now, but if not we’ll get into that later in this post…
I’ve been toying around with the idea of becoming a distributor for about a year and finally decided to get off the sidelines and dive in. You probably don’t know this, but I’ve been an avid LipSense user for over a year now. It’s the lipstick I ALWAYS go back to. I’d occasionally wear other lipsticks and glosses but I came to the conclusion I’m just not made for it. I usually forget I’m wearing it and get a big red stain on my clothing, or it’s all over my face as soon as I eat lunch. It’s just a disaster and I was so tired of the drama of trying to wear regular lipstick. My troubles are officially OVER!
I envision Busy Girl Beauty as a resource for us women to share our best tips, ask questions, and in general help other busy girls like ourselves feel confident and beautiful every day. This is also where I’ll post updates on my available LipSense colors, and any giveaways, contests, or sales I’m doing (there just might be a Mother’s Day sale coming today!). This is so much more than your typical LipSense business though. Even if you’re not interested in LipSense at all, I hope you’ll join for the community, and the hair, makeup, and skincare tips we’ll be sharing. Don’t forget to also follow along on Instagram!
Now, let’s talk about the RIGHT way to apply LipSense! I’ve learned that this method makes my color last the longest and looks the best.
Step 1: Apply Oops Remover all over lips and rub together. This cleans your lips and removes any residue.
I’ve talked before about the importance of using a serum in your nightly skincare routine – and I stand by that! Face wash, moisturizer, these are a given. But a serum is where you’ll actually see the benefits long term to your skin, especially in terms of anti-aging.
I feel a little bit like I have been keeping a secret from you guys! I’ve been using the Luminess airbrush makeup system for almost 2 years now but I’ve never really talked about it! I did a little blog post HERE forever ago but I didn’t say too much about it. In reality I’ve been using the airbrush system a few times a week ever since!
I’m SO excited about this video because I am finally showing you guys how I do my own gel nails at home!
About a year ago I decided I was totally OVER paying $30ish every time I wanted gel nails. Confession – I’m pretty picky about my nails. I pretty much gave up on regular polish because WITHOUT FAIL I would smudge or chip my polish within an hour. I found out about gel nails (aka shellac aka gel polish) and never went back. If you don’t know about it, basically it is like regular nail polish, only you cure it under an LED or UV light and the polish hardens, and lasts for 1-3 weeks. WE HAVE THE TECHNOLOGY PEOPLE. Up until fairly recently you had to go to a salon to get it done, but now the supplies are so affordable there’s really no reason to do that anymore! Thus I bring you my DIY gel nail tutorial…
I think we’ve all experienced fluctuations in our skin as a result of the changing seasons. When winter comes, my skin typically gets dry and dull. In the summer I need less moisture and more of a mattifying skincare process. It just doesn’t make sense to use one skincare line all year long! We’re all in luck because bareMinerals took it upon themselves to solve this problem with their new Skinsorials skincare line…
I’ve got another amazing holiday gift idea for you guys! Face masks are huge these days – there are so many great ones available right now, but GLAMGLOW started the trend for sure. They were the first premium face mask to really make a name for themselves, and that’s for good reason! Their masks WORK. Simple as that! My favorite is personally the GLAMGLOW SUPERMUD Clearing Treatment. My skin always feel so soft after I use it, and I actually love applying it with a brush instead of my fingers!
Recently I have been lucky enough to get to try out the TruSelf Organics skincare line! Specifically the ‘Clear Skin Kit’. Now lately my skin has been really good – compared to the drama I normally go through with lots of breakouts and cystic acne, it has been way better. I still definitely have breakouts and zits, but nowhere near what I used to get. Because of that I was VERY hesitant to try any new products… I didn’t want to mess up a good thing! When I found out about TruSelf I really did my research. They take a totally NATURAL approach, no harsh chemicals or things to peel your top layer of skin off. 🙂
I felt good about their line and decided to give it a shot!
