Eyeshadow palettes can be expensive, and there are so many different colors in one eyeshadow palette- I mean, where do you start and what colors go with what?! One of my all-time favorite palettes is the Sigma Warm Neutrals.

The Sigma Warm Neutrals volume 2 palette is the one palette I take traveling with me, and I love how I have a little bit of everything in the one palette. I can create something dramatic or something a bit softer for the everyday look. The colors are well pigmented, and there is little fallout! It’s a great palette to have.

It does no good though to share this palette and not share multiple ways to use it- so here it is (video is down below) three EASY ways to wear the Sigma Warm Neutrals Volume 2 palette!

Back with an all-new updated video on how to curl your hair with a flat iron! It’s been almost 3 years since I did my last tutorial on how I curl with a flat iron, so it’s about time we do a new one. Curling my hair with a straightener/flat iron may be the easiest and fastest way for me to curl my hair.

I’ve curled my hair before plenty of times with a flat iron, and though the look can be different from curling with a wand, you can still get gorgeous waves. As always here are a few key pointers you need to know;

  • Protect your hair from the heat with a shield spray!
  • When your curling make sure move the straightener quickly as you glide it down your hair. If you keep it still for too long, you’ll get creases.
  • Look for a flat iron with rounded edges, it’ll help to curl easier, and will help with preventing crease marks on your hair.
  • Practice makes perfect. The more you practice, the more you will get the hang of it.

Comment below, do you normally curl with a flat iron, love it, hate?! Share your thoughts below!

One thing I get asked a lot is if I get my eyebrows waxed, or I groom and shape them myself. Short answer: I do them myself, and today I wanted to share my tips and tricks on how to do YOUR eyebrows.

Here is my long answer, believe it or not, back in my high school day, my brows were paper thin and a straight line. Then years later, I got married and found a girl at Ulta at the brow bar, and she brought them back to life. Along the way she gave me pointers and taught me how to do my own eyebrows.

If you still can’t figure out how to do your eyebrows, I would highly recommend seeing one of the eyebrow specialists at Ulta. Watch carefully, asl questions and learn as much as you can! Slowly but surely, you’ll be the one doing a how-to video soon!

I hope you enjoy the video below, and if you have any questions, make sure to comment below!

The Tom Ford Ultimate Bronzer has become my holy grail bronzer. I LOVE it, and it does come with a hefty price tag, but I will admit it- I think it’s worth every penny.

However, if spending over $100 is a bit too much for a bronzer, the butter bronzer is a GREAT bronzer as well.

Both the Tom Ford Ultimate Bronzer and the butter bronzer warms your skin up flawlessly, and so far, BOTH have blended well with every single foundation I have tried.

Have you tried any of these bronzers? If so, share your thoughts or comments below!

If you have been following me over on Instagram, you know I have been OBSESSED with the post braid curls. I can’t braid myself, so I found a salon to braid my hair. I kept thinking to myself there has to be a tool out there to help me mimic this look without having to pay for someone to braid my hair. And what do you know, I found the Revlon Jumbo 3 Barrel Hair Waver.

BOOM.

I have found my dream tool, well no, my dream tool is the Revlon One step Hair Dryer. But this new Revlon Jumbo 3 Barrel Hair Waver is my second favorite.

My tips on nailing this look are;

  • Get yourself a texture spray. It will help with volume and make the style last longer.
  • Get as close to the root of your hair as you possibly can. This will also help with volume and make the curl look more natural.
  • Finally, don’t curl all of your ends, leave some uncurled. Again, this gives less of a “polished” look.

I’m still on the fence on what to actually call this hairstyle. It’s not beachy waves, but deep waves aren’t correct also. Whatever this hairstyle is, I am obsessed with it. What would you call this hairstyle? Comment below!

Everyone is busy during the hustle and bustle of the holiday. Between gift giving, holiday parties… ain’t nobody got time to check on their makeup every 20 minutes. Right?!

I am teaming up with Stage today for their #SetYourHolidayStage Virtual Holiday Party this season and to share my tips and tricks on how to make your makeup to last all day! Stage has some of the best holiday sets like the ones I am using in this tutorial from Smashbox. They make great stocking stuffers to, and you can find so many gift sets for under $50!

I get asked a lot on how to make your makeup last, and today I wanted to share some of my tips on how I make my makeup last all. Day. Long.!

How To Make Your Makeup Last All Day - YouTube

 Eye Shadow Trio /  Lipstick & Mattifier Set / Contour & Spotlight Palette / Photo Finish Primer Trio

Mineral Matte Finishing Powder / Eyeshadow Base Primer / Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation

Here are a few a few of my key takeaways;

  • Find a primer for your skin type. If you have dry skin, find a moisturizing primer. If you have oily skin, find a mattifying primer.
  • After you apply your foundation and concealer, set both with a loose setting powder.
  • Use your concealer or an eyeshadow primer to help with your eyeshadow creasing. It will also help with your colors blending more easily!
  • To prevent your lip color from bleeding and lasting longer, try applying your FULL lip with a lip liner of the same color as your lipstick.
  • Lastly, use a setting spray to set your makeup!

Do you have any tips or trick you use to make your makeup last all day? Share them below!

P.S. Make sure to take this holiday quiz Stage has over on their blog, guess what my holiday party persona is… it’s “party mom”. LOL!

As a mom of three, there are many, and I mean MANY days where I have less then 20 minutes (and that’s if I am lucky) to get ready. A 5-minute makeup routine is something I could probably do with my eyes closed, I have perfected this quick and easy look like nobody’s business! And like any good friend, I want to share with you my 5 minute makeup tutorial.

It’s not glam, it’s not over the top (but if you’re looking for a glam makeup look you can check out this tutorial), it is more of making the skin look a bit more even, adding a little bit of color and boom, you’re good to go.

I’m so excited to team up with Stage to bring you this two-toned eyeshadow tutorial! The month of October Stage is turning October into Pink October to celebrate everything “her.”

Throughout the month, they will be hosting in-store and online with “Pinktastic” deals on beauty and fashion brands! Join Stage during their Beauty Bash October 10-23 where you can find 14 Days of Party Favors including offers on great brands like Philosophy, Clinique, Elizabeth Arden and more!

products used: Eyeshadow/ Lip Color: in “Disorderly

Here are a few tips on this two-toned eyeshadow look;

  • You can really achieve this look why any color shadows! So have fun with the colors and try something new!
  • You can use both shimmer shadows or two matte shades.
  • Try a bold lip or go nude, both work great! A nude lip will keep the focus on just the eyes, but a bold lip makes the whole look a statement.
