Everyday Makeup

{Makeup Routine, Beauty, Hair, Blogger, Blog, Elf, Mac, Mally, philosophySo since I shared my hair, and skin routine I thought I’d share my everyday makeup routine as well. So I start with hope in a jar a-z cream and add a pump of Elf primer and mix it up. I don’t wear foundation so this smoothes out my skin and the primer gives it a little sparkle!

{Makeup Routine, Beauty, Hair, Blogger, Blog, Elf, Mac, Mally, philosophy I add some light shadows from this Elf special edition kit, I love it because it has everything I need in one place. Also, I had to buy it because Ariel is my favorite princess and I couldn’t let it go to waste. Ha!{Makeup Routine, Beauty, Hair, Blogger, Blog, Elf, Mac, Mally, philosophy}Then, I add Mac bronzing powder in the bronze color, I was using a drugstore brand until I replaced it. (Finally!)

Next, I add a Mally blush I love the color, so pretty!

I rotate between like 5 colors and love each and every one. I’m wearing Morning Coffee in these photos, I put it all over my lips like lipstick. {Makeup Routine, Beauty, Hair, Blogger, Blog, Elf, Mac, Mally, philosophy

I add a top coat and this always alternates as well between Mac and YSL lipsticks or gloss. I added a YSL lipstick #11 beige, this helps give the look a smooth finish since lipliner is rather drying.

I hope you enjoyed the post I’ll be back to fashion on Wednesday, and thanks so much for reading if you have any questions feel free to email me!

Love Philosophy

{Philosophy, Amazing Grace, Purity, Beauty, Fashion, Blogger, Style, Blog, Fashion Blogger, Style Blogger}

Philosophy has been my go to for years! I guess you could say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. My mom and grandmother always had these products around the house, the smell of Amazing Grace Whipped Body Creme and Amazing Grace Perfume isn’t just the most beautiful fragrance because of the crisp, clean scent but also because of the memories that come flooding back in one small spritz. My day starts and ends with Philosophy!

{Philosophy, Amazing Grace, Purity, Beauty, Fashion, Blogger, Style, Blog, Fashion Blogger, Style Blogger}{Philosophy, Amazing Grace, Purity, Beauty, Fashion, Blogger, Style, Blog, Fashion Blogger, Style Blogger}{Philosophy, Amazing Grace, Purity, Beauty, Fashion, Blogger, Style, Blog, Fashion Blogger, Style Blogger}

The first step starts with Purity, a soap so gentle and feels so great on the skin you don’t get that tight dry feeling after using it. It leaves the skin baby soft, yet you feel super clean it washes makeup away simply.

No mascara residue for this girl! Ha!

I hate soap that leaves skin dry, and only partially clean. Purity is a soap I would recommend to anyone with any skin type.

Next, I add back to nurture deeply replenishing oil.

{Philosophy, Amazing Grace, Purity, Beauty, Fashion, Blogger, Style, Blog, Fashion Blogger, Style Blogger}{Philosophy, Amazing Grace, Purity, Beauty, Fashion, Blogger, Style, Blog, Fashion Blogger, Style Blogger}This is one of my favorite products so moisturizing but doesn’t give you a wet feeling or look. So you put oil on your face, but you look like you didn’t put oil on your face. Pretty cool..huh?! It drys for me in a matter of minutes, it easily absorbs into the skin.

Then I add the matching moisturizer, back to nurture replenishing moisture creme.

{Philosophy, Amazing Grace, Purity, Beauty, Fashion, Blogger, Style, Blog, Fashion Blogger, Style Blogger}{Philosophy, Amazing Grace, Purity, Beauty, Fashion, Blogger, Style, Blog, Fashion Blogger, Style Blogger}I always feel like my skin is screaming ”Thank you, thank you!” when I use this moisturizer, it nourishes and leaves my skin glowing. What girl doesn’t want that?! I’m also naturally very dry and this really puts some life and moisture back in my skin. You gotta try it! I mean it really does bring back nurture to your skin. Hehe! Philosophy knows their stuff!

I add hope in a jar a-z cream before adding any makeup. {Philosophy, Amazing Grace, Purity, Beauty, Fashion, Blogger, Style, Blog, Fashion Blogger, Style Blogger}It really helps in completing my look before it even starts. {I’m in a one liner joking kinda mood today!}

I then add some Amazing Grace fragrance{Philosophy, Amazing Grace, Purity, Beauty, Fashion, Blogger, Style, Blog, Fashion Blogger, Style Blogger}{Philosophy, Amazing Grace, Purity, Beauty, Fashion, Blogger, Style, Blog, Fashion Blogger, Style Blogger}This stuff is happiness in a perfume bottle, you just have to smell it if you haven’t before. I adore it, it is one of my very favorite fragrances!

Lastly, I always add kiss me tonight lip therapy whenever I need it. I start using it in the morning and carry it in my bag and add it all through out the day whenever I feel I need it. {Philosophy, Amazing Grace, Purity, Beauty, Fashion, Blogger, Style, Blog, Fashion Blogger, Style Blogger}So there you have my morning beauty routine! I use all these products and more, shop them all here.

I hope you enjoyed it, and thanks for reading.

Let’s Talk Hair Extensions

{Hair Extensions, Accessory Concierge, KAS New York, Articles of Society, Irresistible Me, Fashion Blogger, Style Blog}So let’s get right down to it! I have a lot of people ask me about my hair, so I thought I’d answer a few of the most common questions I receive. I do wear hair extensions, I have for many years. I swear by them and anytime my hair is down, you bet I’m wearing them. I have thin hair, and love them to add thickness. My natural hair currently is pretty long but I still like to wear even longer extensions. My current extensions are made by Irresistible Me, and ladies believe me when I say they are the best extensions I have ever used. They are so thick, the clips are strong and stay in place all day, and they come with a lot of wefts. I need extensions that are high quality and will last as long as possible, if you wear them as often as I do you kinda depend on them. They do not feel weird or bother me in anyway I don’t even know that they are there. I don’t feel them at all! They don’t feel heavy or cause me to have any pain or irritation. Now, starting out you might feel different not necessarily in a uncomfortable way but you may notice they are there for a bit while you get use to them.

{Hair Extensions, Accessory Concierge, KAS New York, Articles of Society, Irresistible Me, Fashion Blogger, Style Blog}In my years of experience not as an expert of course, but as a consumer I have never known hair extensions to be damaging to my natural hair. I’m told by my stylist I have very healthy hair, if you are someone thinking about trying them I thought I’d share. That’s always an often asked question! I do use a heat protector on both my hair and my hair extensions, this just protects the extensions and aids in them lasting longer. I do my best to take care of them! I spray them with TRESemmé Heat Tamer, then run a flat iron over the top of the hair this is for the waves that naturally develop around the clip area. Then I curl the bottom portion of the hair.

{Hair Extensions, Accessory Concierge, KAS New York, Articles of Society, Irresistible Me, Fashion Blogger, Style Blog}{Hair Extensions, Accessory Concierge, KAS New York, Articles of Society, Irresistible Me, Fashion Blogger, Style Blog}{Hair Extensions, Accessory Concierge, KAS New York, Articles of Society, Irresistible Me, Fashion Blogger, Style Blog}This is the first weft and includes 4 clips, it’s the thickest piece. I like to use it as my starting piece, I simply part my hair around the base of my neck and layer by layer work my way up. This way the top portion of my hair covers the extensions, that works for me! I’m very good at concealing them, and I have very thin hair so if you are worried about coverage because you also have thin hair don’t be. Practice makes perfect, I can literally put all my extensions in my hair in under one minute. If the thought of that is keeping you from trying them, it’s super easy. My biggest tip would be to pick a shade that blends with your hair almost perfectly. That’s always key for me, I will not purchase them if I don’t think they will blend super naturally with my own hair. I want hair that is pretty much identical to my own. This is the color I’m using from The Royal Remi line. I went for the 24 inch length, but they range from 14 inches all the way up to 24 inches so you can find the right length for you! {Hair Extensions, Accessory Concierge, KAS New York, Articles of Society, Irresistible Me, Fashion Blogger, Style Blog}So, I part and section my hair using my fingers. You can use a comb if you wish. It seems I’m always in a rush so I just go for a quicker alternative, then I just tease the hair so the clip will stay in place all day and place the weft clip by clip on the part line.  {Hair Extensions, Accessory Concierge, KAS New York, Articles of Society, Irresistible Me, Fashion Blogger, Style Blog}I part of the next section of hair and repeat the same process. Tease then clip! Placing both of the 3 clip wefts along the middle of my head. {Hair Extensions, Accessory Concierge, KAS New York, Articles of Society, Irresistible Me, Fashion Blogger, Style Blog}The process takes place one more time with the 2 clip piece, I use one on each side. {Hair Extensions, Accessory Concierge, KAS New York, Articles of Society, Irresistible Me, Fashion Blogger, Style Blog}Just tease and clip!{Hair Extensions, Accessory Concierge, KAS New York, Articles of Society, Irresistible Me, Fashion Blogger, Style Blog}

It’s just that simple! I don’t use every weft that’s included, It comes with 10 pieces and I use about 5. They are very thick, and that’s all I need. I do go to my stylist to have the hair cut to blend better! If you have any other questions feel free to email me, or comment and I will get back to you.
