Makeup Find Monday: My 5 Product Face

Goodmorning T-Belles! If you read my #spiritualsunday piece then you know this week is all about challenges! To start, I figured why not do something different with my makeup! I always attempt to do a natural look but am never successful so I figured what better way to slowly get me there than to only use 5 products on my face? This is great for those of you who need a quick makeup look, a natural makeup look or just aren’t really into makeup in the first place! If normally, the word “makeup” intimidates you but you long to have something on your face so that you look more “day ready”, try this with me! Continue reading

Skincare Saturday: Hydration Station

img_2701Happy #nationalhydrationday T-Belles! I don’t know about you but there aren’t too many things I love more than skin that naturally radiates on it’s own all day. You know, that moisturized without trying look. One glance at you turns into three long stares in admiration and suddenly everyone wants to ask you what product you have on your face giving you that luscious glow but instead you get to say “nope that’s just me”. Take it from me, looking for the right products can be A PAIN! I’m going to be sharing a #skincaresecret that most of us if not all will love and use. Not to mention it’s 100% free and only takes 3 minutes or less.

Makeup Find: Lancôme Defencils

Happy Monday T-Belles! I hope we all remember to start the week off with some form of positivity and radiance! This morning while getting ready, I realized that I’ve been holding back on a new mascara I’ve recently tried and have been absolutely loving: Lancôme Defencils. I don’t believe any look is complete without a full dramatic eye. Like most of us though, I want to be able to achieve this in a quicker manner. Finding the right mascara is like finding a comfortable pair of heels … you have to search. Continue reading

How To Get Rid of Dry Skin

dry flowersHappy  Saturday T-Belles! Today is #skincaresaturday. Why dedicate a whole Saturday to skincare? Simple, most of us need help. I was lucky to have healthy skin growing up even though my parents had to force me to wash my face most of the time. I used to think “skin is just skin, how important could it be”. As I got older my skin progressively regressed. My skin got so bad at one point that even my makeup wanted to jump off of my face. As someone who loves a beat face (at least 4 times a week), I’ve been working to revitalize my skin by trying different products with natural ingredients. Of course, it’s been hit or miss, but after much experimentation, I’ve found products that work for me. I have many recommendations that you’ll slowly get to know. Today I want to share two products that have drastically changed my skin in a short time … Continue reading

My 15 Minute Makeup Routine

timerHey T-Belles! I hope you’re all having an amazing week! I’ve been having a great week so far despite minor illness. Lately I’ve been getting more compliments than usual on my makeup and appearance, although I’m not sure why. Some days I’m hopping out of bed, eating breakfast, scrambling to get ready, then racing to class. On others, I’m studying or working all day, working out for an hour and a half, getting ready, then racing to get to class.

Because I haven’t had infinite amounts of time on my hands I’ve been forced to go with a quicker makeup routine than normal (no time to pack on the makeup or try new things). Recently I’ve just been putting on the basics. I’m actually quite excited that I found a makeup routine that doesn’t take two hours. This is perfect for the woman constantly on the go or the woman who hates absorbing too much time into her makeup. Also, if you’re one of those who loves to wear makeup, this just might be your new go-to, especially on “lazy” days or sick days. Continue reading

How Much Does My Everyday Makeup Look Cost?

6d4e1790-17c4-44c2-bec4-598627a216cdHi T-Belles! When getting ready quickly, I instantly default to my go-to every day makeup look. I recently noticed that I was running low in a lot of my products. So, naturally I asked myself: “How much does this all cost, anyway?” Well, let’s find out together! Continue reading

My Go-To Spring Skincare Products.

Hi T-Belles! Currently Central Texas has been dealing with a thunderstorm, creating some really warm days in between, as many of us know. Because of this moody weather lately, the urge to put on makeup has been lacking, so instead I’ve been doing the unbearable thing for many: leaving the house (mostly) bare-faced. There are two crucial things you all should know about me:

One: As much as I love makeup, if the weather isn’t right outside I’m not putting it on

Two: I don’t play any games when it comes to skincare because of thing #1
