Maskcara Beauty | Makeup Troubleshooting Tips

Getting your new Maskcara IIID Foundation is super exciting! I started using it in April of 2017 and to this day it’s still the only foundation I have had success with and loved.

But, there are sometimes things you have to work through when getting anything new. And because this foundation is so different than what most people are used to in traditional foundation, it may take some troubleshooting in the beginning. And occasionally throughout the year as your skin changes, you may need to address some of the same things at different points.

Business Book Faves

I'm going to shake things up a little and share a simple list of my favorite business books, but what I really want this to become is a place where I can consistently update with new books as I find them. I am a committed reader - sometimes it's Audible, other times Kindle. Those are my two choice methods. And when I really want to absorb something, I do that whole trick from elementary school - where your teacher would say "I want you to read along in your book while I read aloud".

What are the ingredients in Maskcara makeup?

One of the most frequently asked questions I get is "what are the ingredients in Maskcara makeup?"

And I always want to applaud those who ask, because if we're getting real, there are SO many chemicals in the world that are really dangerous. In fact, so many that in the European Union over 1300 ingredients are banned from being used in cosmetics.

3 New Faves | Kristin Ess Hair Products | Review

Ya'll know I love me some Target shopping. Like every other woman on this planet. ;) 

And I've been eyeing that end cap with Kristin Ess products for quite some time now. I have heard good things from a few people, but never made the leap myself. 

Until the last fateful trip to Target when I noticed that all the Kristin Ess products were buy 2 get one free! Uhmmm? Yes, please!

I snagged the Dry Shampoo, the Texture Spray, and the Instant Lift Thickening Spray.

Becoming More Confident | My Story

I wasn't always confident. In fact, I don't think anyone is always confident. I think it's something that ebbs and flows.

I had a really long childhood ebb. Like a lot of people... probably a lot of you reading this even!

I was not the popular kid in elementary school, or the one that a lot of kids wanted to spend time with. I never did figure out why. But what I did know is that I wasn't picked first for things. If I was invited to birthday parties or other childhood events, it was kind of an afterthought. Like, oh... we probably should invite her. I was left out of games on the playground.

But there was one thing in particular that got to me for a really long time…

Journey to Valuing Myself

In 2011, I made a decision that started a traumatic snowball effect in my life for the next 3 years to come. It was a really bittersweet decision to leave a job where I had made friends I loved, enjoyed the job itself, and felt needed and appreciated by everyone I worked with. I felt valuable to my boss and the company. I didn't realize until I left it how much lack of value for their employees other companies have.

Honest Review | Younique Moodstruck Powder Lipstick

Ever since the day I first tried SeneGence lipstick, I was impressed by it's long lasting power, until it started flaking off in wierd bits and chunks, despite my perfect application. Don't get me started on the burn that came from being loaded with alcohol and the overly potent smell of the stuff.

I chose to quit using it, but from then on, I was determined to find a good, lightweight, long-lasting lipstick that I liked. I stumbled across Younique's Moodstruck Crush Lip Powder from my friend Courtney Bready and decided to give it a shot.

Sometimes it's easy to let your morning routine feel like little things that aren't totally pertinent to getting things done during the day.
