So sorry I have been gone! This week I want to talk about make up and what products I like to use for myself, and what I recommend for for different skin types. When wearing make up always remember to be yourself, and don’t try to put more on if thats not what you are comfortable with.

When I do my make up I always make sure to wear what feels and looks good on my face. Like so many other women I struggle with an oily T zone and dry cheeks. When I put my make up on I make sure to use a primer to help control the oil, but also help my cheeks become moisturized. Next I use an oil free base with full coverage, an then putting a powder in my T zone to help keep the oiliness at bay. I will then put on blush and highlighter. I don’t like to fully contour my face, because it is a lot of work and I don’t always feel it looks natural. I will then fill in my eyebrows and put on eye liner. Then I use a setting spray before I put on my mascara or else it tends to run. I like to keep my everyday make up simple and easy to do in a hurry. If I have more time I will add more eye make up.

For those of you who are very oily I recommend using all oil free products and also using lighter make up that doesn’t cake on to your face. When you have excess oil on your face it is important to wash your face twice a day to help remove the oil and dirt. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT use apple cider vinegar on your face to try and put your natural oils back in your face. This is a big no no in the beauty industry, and is not healthy for your face. I still recommend using a primer and powder to help keep the oil at bay. Another idea is to just use a primer and then a full coverage powder on your face so you font have to worry about your face breaking out from foundation.For those of you who have more of a dry face having products that have oil in them is not a bad thing. Just be careful to always wash it off at the end of the day to prevent break outs. I would recommend using a foundation and maybe a setting powder if you would like. I like the setting powder, because I personally don’t like feeling like I can just wipe off my make up.

If you guys have and questions or comment put them below and please follow my blog! Remember you are beautiful by just being yourself!

Hey guys! So this week I have some great new post for you! I am currently working on some video tutorials for you guys to watch. I really also want to focus on talking about hair for this weeks talking post.

My hair is a very big part of who I am. I make sure that I use good products on my hair and pay attention to what works in it and what doesn’t. I know that my hair loves texture so hair spray and dry shampoo are products that I use everyday. Some really great products that I love are the Moroccan  Oil dry shampoo in the light tones, they also have a dark tone one for those of you who have medium to dark brown hair. I also love the Kenra products, they are amazing and smell very heavenly. I use the volume hair spray which has a very strong hold, as well as the blow dry spray. My hair tends to get oily very fast so I tend to stay away from any oils, but if you have thick hair or hair that is dry using an oil on the ends of your hair can make a very big difference.

Although it may sound gross I do not wash my hair everyday, and either should you. Washing your hair everyday can actually cause your hair to become oily faster. The reason for this is, by washing your hair everyday you are removing your natural oils that your hair needs causing your oil glands to over produce. I personally can go three to four days without washing my hair. Now that does not mean that I started out that way, I had to train my hair to be able to go that long. Start out by washing your hair every other day and put dry shampoo in before you go to bed after the one day mark. So if you was your hair in the morning put in the dry shampoo that night, but if you wash your hair at night put it in the following night. As time goes on you will notice that your hair will stop over producing and you can add another day on.

If you guys have any hair questions please don’t hesitate to ask, I would love to help you out!

Going from summer to fall!!!

Hey guys! I’m so excited to share with you this great transition outfit into fall. As you guys know going into fall from summer the days start cool, get hot, and then back to cool. It can be very hard to keep up with, but the best advice I can you give you is wear  layers!  For this outfit I started with a lighter pair of simple ripped jeans ( you can always wear jeans with more or less rips), a solid colored tee, and a plaid button up shirt. What I really love to do when it gets hot is to tie my shirt around my waist. I paired my outfit with a cute pair of tennis shoes, a simple pair or stud earrings, and a simple cross necklace. This is a very cute and relaxed look that is also comfy and can be changed to fit anyones comfort zone. When I wear an outfit like this I like to wear a loose fitting shirt to help me stay cool and comfy. You can also wear a tighter shirt or tank if you prefer. This outfit can really go, I believe, with any body type.

Another great thing about this outfit is you can dress it up a bit for work or going to happy hour with friends. I added a long necklace, bracelets, and a pair of sandals with a heal. If you don’t like heals adding a nice pair of flat sandals is another option as well. Although I did choose a pair of jeans with rips, you can always wear a darker wash without the rips if that is more appropriate for a work day.

Remember that you don’t need super extravagant accessories to dress up an outfit. Adding a necklace or bracelets is a great way to spice up any outfit. Also just because an outfit is comfy doesn’t mean it has to be yoga pants and a t-shirt. Finding clothes you feel comfortable in and adding simple details like a necklace or button up shirt can change the way an outfit looks. Don’t be afraid to try something new! Leave a comment if your try this look, I would love to see your style!

Hey guys! I wanted to share with you my new shoes that I got for this fall! They are super comfy and light weight, which is great if you are on your feet all day like me. What I really like about them is that they can really go with any outfit, whether it’s leggings and a loose sweater or skinny jeans and a nicer top. Look for them in my up coming posts!

If you are anything like me you love to find new ideas for fashion, make-up, and hair. Places like Pinterest and instagram (although I do have both) don’t always make it look easy! I don’t know about you, but there are definitely days I really want to try out something new and it looks nothing like the picture.  It can be very frustrating. I finally realized it was because it wasn’t always realistic for my hair, or eyes, or body type. That is why I started this blog — to help out different types of women find exactly what works for them. I will do my very best to give different ideas and to break them down to make it easy for you to try it out for yourself! Stay tuned for fabulous ideas in beauty!
