I have always loved beauty! In fact, one of my absolute favorite memories I have to this day involve my very first “big girl” makeup!
I have seriously loved makeup when I was most definitely not allowed to wear it, buy it, own it, look at it, or touch it. For me, there was something about watching my mom, aunts, and grandmother’s put makeup on before church, or just a night out with their s/o’s. In my eyes they transformed from beautiful, extremely smart women, into a bit of, dare I say, Audrey Hepburn and Jacqueline Kennedy.
I am going to be sharing all of my favorite skincare products, a.k.a. only the products I actually use (haha) in stories this week on IG! P.S I will also share my favorite makeup look right now!
We’re going to call it tips & tricks Tuesday and special winners will be chosen every. single. Tuesday. Like, whaaaaaat? I know it’s like unheard of but I just love giving back to you lovies and since we are talking about makeup and skincare, comment down below or DM me on IG what you think the first prize is!
With that being said, I also know a lot of you like to read rather than watch IG stories which I am so down with so I thought it would be fun to let you bookmark this in your phone so you have a forever reference guide! Ready? Set? 5 Beauty Hacks for Every Girl, go!
“How to tame flyaways?” After having both of my babies, I had no idea that flyaways were apart of postpartum. If you are a new mama to be don’t freak out! Even if you flyaways are not postpartum related, I still have you covered, sis! It’s so simple. Use a clear brow gel (my preference), or clear mascara and apply it to the strands of hair you are trying to tame. Linked here and also down below.
“How do I get these lines off my nose from my sunglasses?” Okay, this is the holy grail of beauty hacks! Dampen any beauty blender you have. If you don’t have any, definitely go for the cheap ones on Amazon. I will link them here or down below. Using the damp beauty blender, apply translucent powder to where your glasses will be sitting on your nose.
“Eaaaasy Eyeshadow!” This legit takes 30 seconds lovies! Use bronzer over your lid as eyeshadow. This one is my favorite!
“I want more full and longer lashes?” Now I know a lot of women swear by this and then others absolutely hate it. There doesn’t seem to be much middle ground, except for my lashes. The ONLY thing that actually makes my eyelids look like I have long, healthy lashes is from using this mascara primer!
“How do I get the appearance of fuller, bigger lips?” Sis, you will HAVE to turn into IG stories this Tuesday to find out 🙂 Wednesday morning at 8am EST I will post it here along with the other tips and tricks. 😉
“How do you get that supermodel blush look?” Here is a tip I learned years ago back when I had a modeling coach and I will NEVER forget it! Apply your blush to your cheeks, on the apples of course. Then take the excess onto the bridge of your nose. This mimics the look of a natural suntan with a glowy, youthful look.
One thing I absolutely love about this time of year, decluttering and organizing! There is just something incredibly energizing to me about the smell of spring flowers in the air, that gets my body ready for more organization, less clutter, and getting rid of the old or out dated décor and in with the new!
If you don’t know where to start, I totally have you covered, sis! I am always on the look out for affordable, high quality, investment pieces that are chic, trendy, and durable! If that is your kind of jam, let’s start this year off right!
Makeup and bathroom organization!
Laundry and Storage Organization

Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara is Gluten & Cruelty Free and created by Essence! With this mascara you do not need falsies or lash extensions! Sis, trust me!

This 5 piece set beauty sponge is just like the Beauty Blender minus the price tag!
This nail cream helps to strengthen natural nails with a Coconut fragrance! YUM!! This helps to strengthen cuticles and prevents nails from cracking.
This face mister opens up your pores to allow your skincare products to have an even more effect! YESSS, SIS!
The best mascara and primer! It has earned multiple awards and there is no doubt in my mind why. The way it lifts and appears the look of falsies added with the lightweight feel is an equation for perfection!
Start shopping by clicking on any product photo. Let’s make our skin healthy
This is the Rose Glow and Get It Eye Balm. What makes this eye balm different and a MUST for all women is the cooling and brightening effect. It is full of nutrients, probiotics, and superfoods!
How gorgeous is the newest addition to Tula’s Eye Balm family! A collaboration with Courtney Shields birthed this amazing dark circle under eye treatment. Not only is the glow GORGEOUS, but the fact it also treats my dark circles, yes SIS!

Face Filter Blurring & Moisturizing Primer is the only thing I wear on no makeup days! It is so utterly gorgeous and glowy, you really don’t need anything other than mascara. Unless you have eyelash extenshions!
Protect + Glow Sunscreen with spf 30 des not clog pores. The “glow from within” beautiful radiance for all skin types!
Everyone’s skin is different, we all know that. No new information here. But when you think about the money, time, effort & the disappointment finding the right foundation for you is.
Maybe that was just my experience or maybe a few of you have been there.
This is why I became obsessed (and still am) with Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation!
It is full coverage which I love, but it doesn’t feel heavy at all when it’s on my skin.
Major victory over here!
