Today I’m talking about drugstore mascaras. When it comes to mascara, I am PICKY! I’m a chronic eye-rubber, so I need something that won’t make my lashes stick together, get clumpy, or feel to heavy. And a little length doesn’t hurt either.
Here are some of my favorite budget mascaras that are in my makeup bag right now!
So I don’t know about y’all, but I have been seriously lacking in the motivation area. I haven’t even posted this week and have been feeling a little down, to be honest. And there’s nothing really wrong, but I’ve just been blah.
Today I was thinking about what I could so to snap myself out of it and jump start my motivation and it hit me… Pinterest!
And I figured id share because everybody goes through these times! Plus it’s Wednesday… Does anybody like Wednesdays?
Maybe I’ll keep doing these mid week pick-me-ups! What do you think? And share your favorite inspirational quotes with me, too!
So today I’m talking about one of my favorite things – foundations! Normally, I go for higher end foundations just because I like to be careful about what I put on my face. But sometimes, it’s just not practical!
Even though with foundation I’m picky, there are some really good drugstore picks!
I’m not sure how summers are where you live, but Texas is HOT! And everyday I can walk out with perfect makeup and an hour later I’m bare faced. But there ARE a few ways to keep your makeup fresh all day… Even in 100+ temperatures!
1. A tinted moisturizer is something I’ve been an advocate for for a long time. And anything similar is good as well.. Foundation mixed with moisturizer, BB or CC cream, anything to lighten up your face! Anything with a dewy texture will look more natural and not like your makeup is melting off. Definitely a must have! This has been my favorite lately.
2. Waterproof mascara is also a necessity, especially for summer activities like going to the pool or running around outside! It’ll stay put and keep your eyes looking more awake. A lot of times waterproof mascara can even hold curl in your lashes more!
3. And for number 2.. You need a good makeup remover. Because you’ll be wearing stay put makeup, mixed with the fact that hot weather can potentially make your face full of oil and (ew, but true) sweat, it’s essential to completely remove your makeup and make your face a clean slate!
Today I’m showing you 3 super fast (like seriously..less than 5 minutes each) to curl your hair. I did one before work for a few days, and here’s how they turned out. One way was with my straightener, one with my curling iron, and one with just a braid!
Most of these curls are messier curls, because that’s my absolute favorite in the summer! How do you curl your hair and what’s your favorite summer hairstyle?
