halloween makeup tutorial


Each Halloween I say I am going to record halloween makeup tutorials. Well Halloween is creeping on our tails and I have yet to record a single video. I give up. I’m busy AF (I mean I did write a book did you get it yet) and more importantly I am lazy. But I have two pieces of good news. I bought a bunch of lights and some backdrops sooooooooooo I will doing a video real soon. Just not in time for Halloween. I am realistic.

The second piece of good news is this post. To compensate for my lazyness I’ve rounded up a few of my fave (more diligent) YouTubers to highlight their easy halloween makeup tutorials. Check it out!

My beauty routine has certainly changed throughout the years. In my twenties, I barely used any beauty products at all. I was the most basic beauty girl you would have known. MAC lipglass was my only staple and I loved lining my lips with brown liner (this was my pre-blending stage). In my thirties, I tried absolutely everything anyone sent me. Joys/perks of being a beauty blogger. It didn’t matter what it was, if it promised to do something I wanted to try out (oh, check out my Buy or Nah series). Now as I head into my forties (holy lipstick how did I get here so fast!) I am really particular with what I put on my face and body.

Because …umm yea, I am selective with my coin spending! View Full Post

Gorgeous In Grey IMG_2571 700x500

At 39, my hair is about 75% grey. I’ve had grey hair for what seems like most of my life. I found my very first grey when I was 14. Unlike most women who find grey to be this aging death sentence for your hair follicles, I welcomed every strand. Nearly everyone in my family has grey hair. My mom, my dad, my aunts, my uncles, my grandmother…literally, you are the stranger unicorn if you don’t have grey hair. I grew up believing that my hair was beautiful because the people around me drilled it in my head daily. “You better not dye your hair,” would be a statement I’d hear for decades. I still do.
