Skincare Saturday: Hydration Station

Happy #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.

How To Get Rid of Dry Skin

Happy  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 …

My 15 Minute Makeup Routine

Hey 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 …
