Spend too much time on beauty tutorials and you’ll start to think that putting on makeup is a full-time job. Unfortunately, many of us already have full-time jobs, and don’t have time for 17-step skin care regimens twice a day. With so many different priorities competing for our time and attention, it’s important to learn beauty tips and tricks that can fit into a busy schedule. Here are some great ways to save time on your beauty routine. Use 2-in-1 Products This may seem like a no-brainer, but look for beauty products that do more than one thing. For example, choose a daily moisturizer that has SPF, or a concealer with salicylic acid to help fight breakouts while you conceal them, or a conditioner that…

Hey y’all! I want you to be able to take advantage of a great discount on some beauty products while you have the chance.  Every holiday season Sephora does a discount for Sephora Insider Members to jumpstart their holiday shopping. As you know beauty products do not get discounted often so you should take advantage of this. If you are not a Sephora Insider Member I highly recommend signing up HERE. It is absolutely free and has even more benefits that come the more money you spend. The Sephora Insider has three tiers: INSIDER, VIB and ROUGE. If you are just now signing up you will start out as an INSIDER for this Beauty Event going on now.  These are the tiers: INSIDER: New member…

Hey there! I hope you had a great weekend! Last week was a fun week for me and I actually got lots of content finished! Whoo hooo! That makes me so happy you just do not even know! During this much needed photo shoot I took the opportunity to try out my new perfect and petite travel bags by Ellis James Designs. The ones I am reviewing are more petite and very different from the other larger bags I have written about.  The really exciting part is one of them is a travel jewelry organizer.  For short trips or things like a photo shoot these bags are so perfect. The Jewelry Organizer Case Let’s start with the jewelry organizer because it was such a big…

Hello Ladies! I am back again to tell you about a new Ellis James Designs makeup organizer! I have written a couple of posts about some of their other organizers. The first was a makeup organizer I purchased for myself and my mother for Christmas two years ago and the other was a travel essentials bag  for toiletries and things.  I have loved both of these organizers so much! Recently, they have come out with a really cute new makeup organizer that I can’t wait to tell you about. Let me introduce you to Tall, Dark and Handsome! I think that is the perfect description for it! What woman doesn’t like tall, dark and handsome!  This large travel makeup organizer has a double layer design…

Summer is in full swing and the heat has definitely turned up wouldn’t you say?!  I don’t know about you but I have to make sure my makeup products will hold up in this heat wave!  Sometimes I even need them to last all day if I have an event planned for the evening.  Not only are long lasting makeup products important but oh my gosh anti frizz products are a must! My hair gets so frizzy in the humidity and the more I can minimize it the better.  Throwing it up in a bun is sometimes all that I can do for it to look good. This month Sephora sent products in the Play! by Sephora June box that try to help combat all…

Hello lovelies! I hope you had a great four day week last week and enjoyed the holiday weekend.  It is finally nearing summertime and all the kiddos will be out of school.  Needless to say summertime can be even busier than the school year so I hope you have a fun vacation planned and get some R&R time! The month of May was pretty busy so I did not get a whole lot of time to sample the Play! by Sephora May Box fully.  I used a couple of the samples and am familiar with another one so I can share what I know.  I would love it if you would let me know in the comments at the end of the post if you…

Hello ladies! It is that time again for the Play! by Sephora Box!  I did something a little different this time too.  I actually tried some of the products last week so I could give you some feed back on them!  YAY!  The funniest part about this box was that it was called Insta Beauty!  They actually put dotted lines around the products on the big sheet so you could place the actual product down and do a flat lay with it! LOL! I have been doing that almost every article.  Thanks for the copy Sephora!  Wish I could have gotten credit for that one.  Anyway, each of the products are supposed to contribute to flawless camera ready results! I have to admit one of…
