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.

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!

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!

My favorite way to feel self love is by showing myself self care!

Self care looks and should be different for everyone! This is just what works for me! No matter what my plans are for the day when I put my IT Cosmetics foundation on with some Milani blush and my favorite KKW eyeshadow palettes.

Whether you decide to take a nice bubble bath with your favorite relaxation music playing, the door shut and locked to give yourself some love!

As Mama’s we tend to always put us last on any important list we create, right? Yes, of course we do. That’s apart of being a mom. Ask your significant other to watch the kids once a month to get a massage if that helps you.

Keep in touch with other mama’s. Find a mom group on Facebook and get together.

If you enjoy reading like I do, it is incredible what reading a book before bed does to help replenish my mind and body.

And happy Mother’s Day to all of you Mama’s 💜

I love switching up my skincare routine from time to time! It helps my skin from getting used to products and it does not allow the product to stop working as effectively. But that is just my skin!

Purity Made Simple

I have been using Purity products for years now ( I wish I were exaggerating lol) and it has been a total game changer!

I absolutely LOVE appyling this product after I have washed my face with my Purity wash. My skin in the summer drinks it in!

This product is fragrance free: LOVE, there is no mineral oil: LOVE, no anti-freeze: LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! Plus right now it is on sale if you click on the link under the picture for $75.00!

This body butter is SO HYDRATING I cannot get enough, EVER! If you have never tried this I would ABSOLUTELY start on your chest area!

These self tanning drops are the most incredible invention ever for women! All you need to do is mix 2-3 drops in your hand with your face moisturizer and BAM you are done!

I have been using this exfoliating cleanser for over a year now and I am a total believer in cleansing your face twice! I use this one after I use my Purity cleanser.

XOXO, Cais
