A few weeks ago I bought the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette because EVERYONE was raving about it. And let me tell you, I know why. This palette has been my go-to palette for everyday looks because of the warm tone colors. These colors are so pigmented. I’ve used almost every color in this palette in some sort of way and no fall outs, which is a YAY in my book because I can’t stand when eyeshadows cause fall out.
You guys 4th of July is 2 weeks away. But this weekend my city is having a 4th of July event which is called “Shake the Lake”. They set off fireworks for 4th of July on the lake and this is our first year taking my boys to it. Of course, I had to create a fun Holiday Makeup: Easy Red White and Blue look. I mean we are celebrating America’s Independence Day why not go all out for this holiday.

This post is something I’ve been meaning to do because I’ve been asked numerous of times on how I cream contour. Cream contouring isn’t something many people can do because it’s tedious and you have to make sure you’re doing it right. Otherwise, you look like a hot mess. I will be honest with you, it took me a year to master down the cream contouring. It wasn’t something I was able to do for a while because I wasn’t blending correctly. In today’s post, I’m going to show you how I cream contour by sharing with you a tutorial. I will explain each step of my process when it comes to cream contouring.
It’s been a while since I shared a makeup look on my blog and today I wanted to share with you this Simple Peach Glowy makeup look I had created a few days ago which has been my favorite to do because of the simplicity. During the spring/summer months, I love to keep my makeup looks very minimal because I don’t have time to sit and do glam because it’s just going to melt off. The humidity in Wisconsin is insane during the summer months. So the fewer makeup products I have the better for me.
You guys!!!!! I have been so excited to share this with you because I’ve been so excited for this collaboration. I’m collaborating with my blogger bestie Alexis from A Blissful Haven. We are showing you some Valentine’s Day makeup looks + fashion looks for you. This is the first time I’m ever collaborating with a fashion blogger. I can guarantee you’re going to like the looks that Alexis has put together for you if you’re still not sure what to wear for Valentine’s Day.
I have another fun collaboration and it’s with my girlfriend Andrea from Glam Hungry Mom. We have been friends for a long time now it seems. Just like me, she also has two little boys and loves all things beauty. So we hit it off great. We wanted to create a makeup look using a palette we haven’t used but that included a pop of color. We both decided to use the Anastasia Beverly Hills Self Made palette.
You guys we are ringing in 2017 in 4 days! CRAZY. If you didn’t catch it yesterday on the blog but I did a 2016: A Year in Review. With that being said this week for the Beauty Mix is all about the New Year’s Eve look. I’m definitely a fan of New Year’s Eve makeup look because you can do WHATEVER look you want because it’s a HUGE celebration. So today I did a smokey eye using black and burgundy because I wanted to use my Urban Decay Heavy Metal (Glamrock).
5 days people! 5 days until Christmas. Are you done with your shopping? I sure ain’t. I have to finish up this week. This week for the Beauty Mix: Christmas (Holiday Makeup). I just love holiday makeup looks and this week I wanted to keep it classy, sparkly but bold with the red lipstick. I honestly believe that this look is super simple to do. The classic wing liner with the gold glitter liner above it and white sparkly shade on the crease.
