Hey babes! Below is EVERYTHING I use from skin care to makeup to tools to hair products! All you have to do is click on a pic to shop an item! These are all items I SWEAR BY! (I would die without them.. and probably look like a toad hahaa!)

In the past I’ve written out why I love the products I use, but I’m not going to do that today. Why? Because I’m FINALLY working on a video so I can SHOW + TELL you how to apply/style and why I loovvee these products!

After sharing my travel skin care & makeup routine I received soo many dms I couldn’t keep up! It was obvious I needed to make a post so HERE IT IS! <3 

Below you can shop every item I used while traveling! Simply click on a picture to shop the item! OR, if you’re Utah based head into Amara Day Spa and try these items out. I got them all from there!

Just a reminder, these items ARE all day wear, have spf, and are waterproof! Not only do I recommend them for vacation, but any day you’re going to be out in the sun or spending time in a humid place. Also, if you have OILY SKIN, (like me) water proof products are truly a game changer! (I wear water proof products nearly everyday.) Your oil will not rub them off! (Aka you’re not going to have mascara smudged on your eyelids or runny concealer.) Waterproof products are AMAZING! 

Also, if I was being selective, my top 5 products out of these are 1. South Seas tanning spray (which you can spray on your body for a tan, and on your face to set your makeup.) 2. Becca highlighter. 3. Smashbox foundation & contour stick. 4. Smashbox eye shadow pallet. And 5. Full Exposer waterproof mascara! (Also also and total side note, the magnetic lashes are a game changer as well! I usually use the one two cosmetic ones, but recently bought these Ardell ones from target and love them just as much! They're also much more affordable!)

If you have any questions on these items leave a comment below or shoot me an email at ChaseAndBrit@Gmail.Com! <3  

Thanks for stopping by loves! YOU DA BESST! xx

Hey peeps! We’ve been really excited to share our new beauty Secret with you! We started using a new product called KeraHealth, (a hair + skin + nails supplement) and we believe it’s a MUST HAVE for men + women! 

KeraHealth is a Super Supplement made for ALL hair types! There are two different formulas (one for men, one for women) that distinctively target what each male & female needs! KeraHealth has been scientifically proven to reduce hair loss, promote hair & nail growth, and bring a natural + beautiful shine to your hair, skin, & nails like never before! 

We’ve been using it for a month and have not only seen results in ourselves, but in each other as well! (Chase has been wanting thicker, faster growing hair, and Brit has been struggling with hair growth her entire life!) We’ve seen more results with KeraHealth in the past month than we have in our years and years of biotin use!

We’ve done our research on this unique supplement and have narrowed it down to 3 reasons why KeraHealth works better than any other hair supplement out there! #1. It’s a Super Supplement, meaning your body absorbs 95.5% of the patented keratin formula. (in the past we’ve taken biotin, and found through research our bodies only absorb 16-20% of that & wastes away the rest!) #2. It has SOD! SOD stands for Superoxide Dismutase. SOD is the primary and most powerful + underrated antioxidants! (Known as the “Youth Concentrate!) It not only gives you a glow, but helps your bodys overall health & promotes weight loss! And #3. It contains KerCysteine! KerCysteine is KeraHealth’s patented naturally-sourced ingredient that bonds to the existing hair follicle and nourishes the root  with keratin peptides, amino acids, vitamins, and minerals, promoting your hair to grow even thicker, longer, stronger, and healthier! Ultimately  giving you the best version of your hair! 

Adding KeraHealth to our beauty + maintenance routines was a breeze! We take 2 capsules with our breakfast everyday and we’re good to go! Simple as that!

KeraHealth supplements are drug-free, cruelty-free, gluten-free, trans fat-free, lactose-free, and vegan friendly! The only warning we need to give is to wives. Ladies, DON’T use your husbands supplements! Husbands, you can use your wives if you’d like! 

If you’re intersted in trying out KeraHealth, you’re going to have to order it cause we’re selfish and don’t want to share hahaa! (Sorry, it’s just too good!) Good news though, you can get 10% off your order if you purchase  through any of our links to KeraHealth! (Aka all the words in GOLD!)  

Thanks for stopping by guys! We love you! xx P.S. If you have any questions or comments on this product, drop a comment below and we’ll get back to you!

Whats up spooks?! HAPPY HALLOWEEN GUYS!

The older I get, the more fun I have with costumes & makeup on this wicked holiday! I love buying a costume/clothes that I would regularly wear, and just spicing it up with some good accessories & makeup! (Remember my pink unicorn from last year?! Same concept!) 

This year I headed to Lulus for my skeleton costume needs and found this black velvet dress! Perfect for Halloween & even more perfect to wear out on a date night! I totally scored with this dress! I also adore these boots and socks which I also scored at Lulus! (Also, if you remember my unicorn costume last year, it was all Lulus as well! They’re simply the best!)

For Chases costume, we decided that black on black was the way to go! Hole-y + distressed tee & jeans + the skell makeup and he’s good to go! 

I did our halloween makeup this year and it is in no way professional! But, after a few years of testing out Halloween makeup, I do have a few tips for you guys!  

1. Find a picture of Halloween makeup you like and copy it as best as you can! I continually look at the picture while doing my Halloween makeup and it helps a ton!!!!

2. Use as much real makeup as possible! (Aka don’t use the cheap stuff from the grocery store unless you have to!) Real makeup stays in place better, looks better, and feels better than the cheap Halloween makeup! (We did use cheap white cream that we found for $1.00 at target, but it was hard to work with! If you can find actual white makeup.. it’s going to look so much better!) You can shop the makeup we used/the makeup I recommend for this look below! 

3. Apply the makeup how you would regular makeup! Use brushes, bake your foundation, add detail, & BLEND the crap out of lines! I used foundation brushes, eye liner brushes, liquid eyeliner pens, and a beauty blender to complete our faces! 

4. TAKE YOUR SWEET TIME! Sure, you can throw the look on in 5 minutes, but if you go slow and pay attention to detail, it’s going to look soo much better! It took us 25 minutes to do our faces, and I honestly could have done better if I had the time! 

5. HAVE FUN! Be creative, get crazy, accentuate your features, and be unique! No two skells should be alike. (; 

Thanks for stopping by guys! Wishing you all a spooky good night! Happy Halloween everyone!!!! <3 Love you all!

Teeth Whitening // Dentist // Tee // Denim

Hey guys <3 guess what?! I’m finally answering your questions! YOU always send tons of DMs & emails asking about my beauty routines, and I’m slowly but surely bringing them ALL to you! (If you missed my hair post, you can find it by clicking HERE!) **Also, I’d like to note that this post is NOT sponsored! 

Ok, y’all are always asking if my teeth are edited/photo shopped, and the answer is NOO! My teeth definitely aren’t perfect (I’ve never had braces and would love to get veneers one day) BUUUUTTTT I honestly can’t complain! My shiny bright whites make up for it! 

The ONE beauty bust I honestly can’t live without is my TEETH WHITENING! Nothing makes me (or anyone) look and feel prettier/more confident than vivid white teeth! 

I’ve been whitening my teeth for years, and have searched high and low for the best product! Tooth paste, white strips, LED light whitening, natural charcoal products, baking soda, banana peels, professional whitening.. you name it, I’ve tried it! 

My dentist (Dr. Mark Fullmer at Art City Dental) had some teeth whitening at his office that he recommended to me a year and a half ago so I decided to try his whitening syringes out! He made me some trays (which are molds of my teeth, pictured above) and I got right to testing his whitening! 

I started using my whitening trays one hour a day two times a week (just in case I was sensitive) and noticed results THAT WEEK! Not only did I notice a difference, but so did my family and friends! ALL OF THEM! And they have all hopped on the whitening train too! 

Now I use my trays once (occasionally twice) a week for 3-4 hours at a time! My teeth have only experienced sensitivity once (and it was my bad, I left them in over night) and they haven’t been affected by the whitening other than getting brighter! To me this is a score!  (I’ve had products turn my mouth strange colors, eat away at my gums, not whiten at all, and make my teeth sensitive to no end. So bad.) This whitening is also really easy to use! I just push down on the syringe, point it into my trays, and then put them on! (The process is pictured above!) Sometimes I wear them out in public too since they’re clear! No one can even tell I’m wearing them! 

So, the best part about THIS teeth whitening is MY DENTIST Dr. Mark Fullmer is offering FREE TEETH WHITENING FOR LIFE right now! And I know what you’re thinking.. It sounds like hoax/too good to be true. But I’m telling you people, it’s for real!  

To get free whitening for life, all you have to do is become a new patient! Each time you go in for a cleaning/check up, you will receive two free syringes!

Once again, I swear to you this post is NOT sponsored! Heck, I don’t even know if my dentist knows my name! I just thought this was an INCREDIBLE offer and wanted to share it with all of you because I love this whitening so much! 

My dentist’s office is called Art City Dental & he’s located in Springville, Utah! You can find more information about him HERE! <3  

If you’re not a local to Utah/you don’t want to leave your dentist but want this whitening, it’s only $12.00 per syringe! (And I’m pretty sure they would ship it to you if you called and ordered over the phone! I’ve done it once before!) 

Thanks for reading loves! If you guys have any questions about my whitening, my dentist, or my teeth, leave a comment below! xx 

P.s. Unfortunately I don’t have any before and after photos unless I go years back.. BUT I have these pics below that show just how white my teeth really are! My teeth are not edited in any of these, just insanely white! <3

You asked for it, so I'm bringing it! Everything you've ever asked about my hair is HERE! I'm a hair + extensions nazi.. so if you're the same then dig in to this post! 

For starters, YES I have extensions! I've had them for 7 years. NO, they are not damaging. My hair in the extensions is always longer & healthier than my hair out of the extensions!  

Right now I have 18" bonded extensions. (See picture above.) I've had both wefts and tapes in the past, but bonds are by far my favorite! They are low maintenance, they match your hair color perfectly, blend amazing, adds thickness and length, you can brush right over them, custom color them, go more time in between adjusting them.. bonds are literally everything! 

I had my bonded extensions done at Amara Day Spa and recommend them one billion percent! I've been going to Amara for my nails for years now, and have seen this service done on a few of their clients. I had always wanted to try this extension method out, and am kicking myself in the butt for not doing it sooner! I'm seriously soo happy with them! (Little side note, if you haven't been to Amara, you MUST go! It's the cutest high end salon in Utah county and I don't go anywhere else for most services! They do everything from hair to waxing to Botox! GO SEE THEM! Allssoo, Amara is the ONLY place I go to for nails! My girl Myka is THE BEST! She's the reason my nails are so long, healthy, and beautiful!) 

KK, back to hair! The picture above with my tongue out is my actual hair length! Yes, my hair is crazy short! If you're worried your natural hair is too short for extensions, then stop right now! Extensions can blend with any hair length!  

I've used just about every brand of extensions on the market and am currently using Racoon hair. (Amara has it at their salon!) Racoon hair is the softest, most natural looking, & prettiest hair I've ever used! It's also the priciest hair I've used, but it's worth it! (Racoon hair is Remy hair. I've only used Remy hair extensions and recommend you do the same as well! Remy is the best brand on the market!) 

I wash and dry my extensions exactly the same as I do my real hair. There's NO DIFFERENCE! For shampoo and conditioner I switch off between Kevin Murphys volume set (thickens hair) and Kevin Murphys purple shampoo set! I get them from my hair gal Natalie Mckell! She's located in Orem at Sola Salon! (She's the first booth in there, you can't miss her! Natalie cuts & dyes my hair and she's INCREDIBLE! I've been through a few girls and feel like Natalie is the best in the biz!) I also occasionally wash with Oribe products because they smell heavenly! Between Kevin Murphy & Oribe, I'm beyond taken care of! My favorite products from Oribe are the dry shampoo, the texturizing spray, and the matte waves texture serum. (I use these everyday) And my favorite products from Kevin Murphy are their root pump, de tangler, and their shimmer shine spray

The other products/tools I use on my hair are the Mason Pearson brush, the Dry Bar hair dryer and round brush, the GHD single pass straightener, and the T3 whirl trio! All of these products are INCREDIBLE. The only thing I'm itching to add to my collection is the new Dyson hair dryer! (I've heard amazing things about it. If you're looking for a new hair dryer, I'd try this puppy out!) 

When I Style my hair, I start with a wet head. Fresh and clean! I towel dry for a minute or two, then air dry for 10 minutes! I spray the de tangler on the ends of my hair and my extensions, and the root pump at the crown of my head! Then I start round brushing + blow drying until it's 100% dry! Next I run my straightener through my hair to make it look healthy and smooth! Then I grab my whirl trio and curl everything away from my face! Sometimes I alternate the curls direction, others I don't! Once it's curled I grab my Mason Pearson brush and fluff everything out! (This brush is amazing for fluff + hair health!) After that I add the Oribe texturizing lotion & spray to help it hold! And finally I finish it off with Kevin Murphys shine spray for a perfectly polished look! In my opinion product has A LOT to do with your hair, so I always recommend investing in good, long lasting tools and products! 

For my color I honestly don't know what to tell you. (Sorry guys!) I don't know much about hair dye, and I don't ask Natalie for a specific color! She just does what she thinks will look best and I trust her! You can definitely send her a DM through Instagram though and she can help you out! Her Instagram handle is @NatalieMckellHair

There's a bunch of other questions you guys have emailed me about, so I'm going to answer them quickly here! <3  

YES, you can wear your hair in a pony tail with extensions!  

YES, you can work out with them! Sweat won't hurt the extensions.

YES, you can swim with them! (I don't get in the chlorine much because I'm blonde, but it doesn't hurt the extensions!)  

NO, they don't hurt! I've heard some people have been sensitive after getting them in for the first time, but I never have with any method!  

No, they don't look fake. Some DO, but if you get good hair, and have someone who knows what they're doing putting them in, they'll look amazing! Once again, I recommend the bonded method, Racoon hair or any Remy hair, and Amara salon can do this all for you!  

No, I do not lose pieces of hair! (I have with tape ins once, but once in 7 years is amazing!) If your hard on you hair, I recommend getting bonds or wefts, not tapes!  

No, they are NOT hard to style! In fact, they are easier than real hair! They hold curl much better than real hair and the curls last for days!  

YES, if you really want me to I'll upload a video of how I curl my hair. But FAIR WARNING I'm SUPER AWKWARD and it won't be anything amazing! Soo if you want a sups awks hair video tutorial, leave a comment below! 

I've been going through your emails and dms making sure I've answered all of your questions, but I'm sure I've missed a bunch! (So sorry guys!) If you have any other questions or if I missed yours, leave a comment below and I'll get back to you! 

Thanks for stopping by loves! Hoping this helps answer your questions! Love you all! <3

Hello loves & HAPPY FRIDAY!! What are y'all doing this weekend?! 

Ok, a week and a half ago I was on my Instagram story telling you guys about this amazing makeup I just tried from The Perfect Face! (This should sound familiar to most of you because I had a jillion emails come in after posting the video clips!) 

I have always had a love/hate relationship with makeup. I want to be fully covered, yet natural looking. I have struggled with that balance my entire life!! I have extremely oily skin, and growing up would often look orange an hour after applying my makeup because of my oils! And then I'd have to go to the bathroom, try to cover it with powder, which would make my face look cakey, and it would result back to orangey oiliness within an hour. (I'm not kidding. People would make fun of me for it. And it lasted for 6 years.. It. Sucked.) 

Then one day (hallelujah + pwaise the lawd) Utah Valley got a Sephora and I basically moved in! Being able to test out different makeup/products (alongside my proactiv face wash) saved me and my orange self. (God bless you sephora & all your samples!) 

Fast forward a couple of years to NOW and I finally understand makeup! I still have problems with makeup (like I occasionally turn myself orange and mess up,) but hey, I'm getting better with each passing day! 

The biggest struggle I've had with makeup this last year is that I always seem to look younger than I'd like. I'm a married woman, and want to look/feel like a woman! (My body is similar to a 12 year old boys shape/size & my face looks about 18 years old.) These aren't bad things!.. But some days, I just really want to look & feel like a mature, empowered, sexy woman. 

Rewind two weeks ago and the ups guy drops a package off from The Perfect Face. (Makeup!) I'm going to be honest, I'm wasn't  expecting much, but I was excited to try it!

The next morning I use the entire line while getting ready and I instantly started noticing differences!! A little went a long way with EVERYTHING! All of the makeup had incredible coverage without looking cakey, and my face was practically glowing! (If you saw my Instagram story from that day, you'll understand what I mean by glowy!) 

When Chase saw me after I had the makeup on, he realized something was different. Which is a huge deal! Since when do guys notice things like that?! NEVER! 

I gained something very important from this makeup. Somehow, after it was all applied, I looked more like a woman. (& I wasn't even wearing my vs bombshell.) I don't really know how to explain it, but I did. I could see it, my husband could see it, I was rocking this hot confidence for the rest of the day, it was amazing! It's exactly what I've been looking for this past year! <3

Just a quick background on The Perfect Face: this is the makeup that is used for the Miss USA pageants. It's created to look fresh throughout the entire day, cover fully, and last a lifetime. 

I can honestly say I love every single one of these products. I wanted to share my favorite three with you guys today! The highlighter, the blush, and the lipstick!  

The Highlighter has the most incredible shine. I swept it over my nose and cheeks once and that was all I needed! Same with the blush. Three sweeps across my cheeks and I was golden! The lipstick is my absolute favorite though. It has these brown tones in it that are truly beautiful.. I wear it every day now! I also think the coloring in the blush and lipstick are key factors to making me look more woman like. I could be wrong, but I think there's a high possibility it could be these two products! 

Below I've linked everything I'm currently using from The Perfect Face. If any of you guys are interested in trying this line out, you're in luck! I've teamed up with TPF & anyone who orders makeup from TPF can get 10% off with code "BRIT" at check out! 

I 100% LOVE this line & know you guys will too!! <3

Hey loves! Since Christmas + New Years are right around the corner, I wanted to share my favorite hair products with you that help me save time, money, and make my hair look amazing! 

When my hair needs a boost, or if I'm in a hurry, I always grab my Fromm Beauty brushes! The hot paddle brush makes my hair dry faster, the thermal round brush gives my hair TONS of volume, and the glosser paddle brush adds crazy gorgeous shine to my locks!

These brushes not only save me styling time, but salon time too! (And money!) Since I've had these babies, I have skipped the salon a few months at a time! (Which I NEVER used to do! I'm usually in every month!) 

I'm beyond in love with these brushes.. I just think it's so cool that they have been created with serums, growth stimulants, and heat retaining technology. Tbh; every brush needs to be at this level, it simplifies life!  (Plus they're on sale over at Ulta so now we're all in love.) (; <3 

Shop my Fromm brushes & all my favorite hair products below! (Like my T3 wand! It takes me 2 minuets or less to wave my hair with this wand!) xx

The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year is among us, (finally <3) and I HAD to share my favorite beauty products for this season! (& every season!)

I've raved about Cle' De Peaus cosmetics time & time again, but today I'm breaking it down for you!  

Cle' De Peau makes top of the line beauty products that won't wipe off in the cold, or melt away in the heat! You put their products on once, and it's permanent for the rest of the day! I ESPECIALLY love this with their Highlighter & Concealer! Their highlight accentuates all of your best features without over doing the shine. And you could be going on 72 hours of sleepless nights, have 2 black eyes, put their concealer on, and you're GOLDEN! (I kid you not, these 2 products are MUST HAVES!) 

I also snagged these shadows & lipsticks from Nordys last week grabbing my must have products and they are UNREAL! The shadow is a cream to powder, comes in the most BEAUTIFUL colors, and they're incredibly easy to layer! As for the lipsticks, they are my new favorite lippies! No comp! They're called Radiant Liquid Rouge, and simply put they're a lip gloss + lipstick duo that lasts & shines for hours! They come in the most beautiful colors and feel silky smooth on my lips! 

I HIGHLY recommend all of these products for holiday gifts, or for YOUR holiday look! (So a gift to you from you from you! (; You deserve it!) No one has time to reapply throughout the day, especially during the holidays! So do it right the first time, hide those baggy eyes, and be radiant this season! xx|HEA

P.S. Shop this Sweater from Moon River, my outfit, & a few of my favorite holiday looks below! <3

If you've been looking for an acne solution, look no further! We have a system that will brighten your skin, minimize your pores, kill bacteria, prevent future breakouts, and help rid of natural oil! Clearly we use Proactiv! 

Chase & I both have used Proactiv for years, and I don't think we'll ever switch! Occasially I'll try something new, but nothing works quite like Proactiv!  

Chases skin/genes are better than mine, so he uses the Proactiv + system! Proactiv + is for the average joe. You break out, but you're not extreme. You have dry to oily skin. And you won't break out if you skip washing your face for the night. 

Me on the other hand.. well, I'm not so lucky! I'm constantly broken out. Even without stress & makeup! It's genetic /: (And I am horribly oily!) Since I'm more severe, I use Extra Strength Proactiv! The systems are almost identical. The Extra Strength system is just a step up! <3

These are both 3 step systems that cleanse, exfoliate, tone, and moisturize. It sounds like a lot, but it's not! It's actually very quick & simple! We also use their facial masks before special events, shoots, or if our skin needs to be replenished! And I often use a 4th step (acne treatment gel) to help my acne diminish even more! 

Now, I know what you're thinking. That this is some promotional/advertisy post for Proactiv and you're not buying a word I'm saying. Well JOKES ON YOU! This stuff is the sh*t! C & I are often asked what we use to take care of our skin, and now you know! <3 Not promotional. 100% pure honesty. 

If youre still not buying it, TRY ME! Proactiv has a "Money Back Gauruntee" policy! So you have nothing to lose! Well, besides blemishes! And dead skin.. and oil! (;  

Thanks for stopping by Happily Ever Allen <3 We hope to see y'all real soon! xx|HEA  

THE MAKEUPS

Hello Loves! <3 I’m really excited to share this beauty post with you all today! I receive emails daily about my personal makeup routine, my favorite products, and how I apply my makeup! In this post I’m sharing all of the current products I use, some of the products I’m DYING to get my hands on, and most importantly my favorite pictures/guides I use that have helped teach me how to apply my makeup! ENJOY BABES xx 

MY MAKEUPS <3

Eye Primer / Face Primer / Foundation / Highlight & Contour Sticks / Concealer / Baking Powder / Face Powder / Powder Contour & Bronzer / Powder Highlight / Blush / Bronzing Shimmer for Contour, Neck, & Chest / Matte Eyeshadow (Day) / Shimmer Eyeshadow (Night) / Eyeliner / Rim-Eyeliner / Mascara / Brow Pencil / Brow Gel / Lip Liner / Lipstick / Lip Gloss + Plumper / Beauty Blender 

These products above are pure GOLD! I’ve tried just about everything on the market and these are by far my favorites! They last all day, they don’t make me break out, and they look the most realistic! If you guys have questions about any of these products shoot me an email at Britandrus@gmail.com & I’d be more than happy to answer them for you! xx

One of the things I do before applying my makeup or trying something new is search for inspiration photos/tutorials. I have a board on Pinterest that is chucked full of different looks that I often browse while getting ready! Below you can find my favorite ones! <3 They are easy to follow and have simple break downs! Enjoy! <3

Eyes & Brows

Brows are my absolute FAVORITE! They truly make or break your face! The evolution of these babies amaze me.. They’ve been pencil thin, barely there, sharpied on, and so much more! Right now I’m obsessing over a brow that has a “fade” to it. (or an ombré effect) It starts out lighter/sparse and ends being darker/thick. I’m also obsessing over a thick natural brow! Many of us aren’t so fortunate and don’t have this, but you can definitely create a perfect fraud with makeup!

Now, if you’re someone who doesn’t have much brow hair (or shape) I HIGHLY recommend getting your brows microbladed! I had mine done for the first time 3 years ago and it was the biggest GAME CHANGER! (I get mine done at Salon Precis by Alanna Precis! SHE’S UNREAL!) 

Eyeshadow/Eyeliner makes the world of a difference as well! During the day, I only wear MATTE COLORS! Night time is when you’re allowed to bust out the shimmer! 

One thing I stay away from with eyeshadow is adding shimmer colors to the crease of my eye! The shimmer defines/pops wrinkles and can make your eyes look quite a bit older! (Who wants that?!) For a night/bombshell/smokey eye look I’ll occasional add shimmer to my crease. I do this about once a month! (If that!)

Below you can see the faded/ombré brows, some shadows I’m crushing on, and some very simple winged liner! 

Lips

Oh the beauty of lips! <3 I used to not care/think much about lips. But then one day I had a makeup artist highlight & contour my lips! GUYS, MY WORLD WAS CHANGED! & LIPS ARE SOO IMPORTANT! 

I have three different ways I do my lips. I like to keep them somewhat consistent and natural looking. My three methods are; 1. I line, highlight, and contour them with a lip liner pencil and finish with a gloss & lip plumper. 2. I simply apply one lipstick and fin. Or 3. I slap on my burts bees chapstick and call it good! 

I love the look of a full lip, but I also love the look of a natural/thin lip. For this reason, I will never get lip filler! If the trends were to change and I was stuck with Kylie Jenner lips, I don’t know what I’d do! I feel like makeup is a better AND safer route when it comes to the lippies! 

Below is my favorite lip contour guide! I don’t always do each and every line, but I do always add the X no matter what! It makes the cupids bow stand out!!!! <3

Highlight & Contour

Highlighting & contouring is by far MY FAVORITE part of my makeup routine! It makes the biggest difference and is incredibly fun to experiment with! 

I use two creams & a beauty blender to highlight and contour my face. If I’m going for a more dramatic look I’ll finish it off with highlight & contour powder!

Below you will see three pictures that I follow exactly! They are from one of my friends who is a professional makeup artist and has given me a few lessons/tips throughout the years! 

Finished Looks <3

I love discovering pictures with different looks and trying them out on myself! Ive found its the best way to get better at applying makeup! Wether it’s a different brow shape, a bold lip, a natural vibe, or a complete bombshell look, I LOVE trying them all! 

I recommend gathering a handful of favorite looks before experimenting! Below are some of my favorites! They are all different but beautiful! 

Another thing I’d recommend doing is finding one person who you can relate to/think is stunning who’s looks you can recreate on yourself! 

For example; I adore Natalie Portman, Emma Watson, and Kendall Jenner, but I don’t have many similarities to these beauties. (Cry) BUUTT I do have similarities to Candice Swanepoel, Julianne Hough, and Alena Shishkova! I often look to these women when trying out a new look! ESPECIALLY ALENA! I love her in just about every look possible! (And let’s be honest, to look like her would be a dream!) 

Random makeup advice/tips: 

Less is more.

Do your makeup in natural light/sunlight.

BE SOFT. Don’t press, brush, or blend hard. 

Aim to blend. Avoid creating lines/stripes.

Exfoliate your face at least once a week.

Pluck your brows every now and then. (Or have them waxed regularly)

Don’t try a new look for the first time for an important event. (Seriously) 

Go at least one day a week makeup free. 1. You’re beautiful & 2. Your skin needs a day to breathe!

DON’T do the same thing everyday. Switch up your look AND your products often.

Keep in mind that makeup is supposed to enhance your natural beauty. Don’t change your overall look! YOU ARE UNIQUE AND BEAUTIFUL <3

Brushes: Some people swear that certain brushes make a huge difference when it comes to makeup. I have both high & low end brushes and honestly haven’t noticed much of a difference in quality/application. However, I DO notice a HUGE difference when I use clean brushes vs. dirty ones! I try to wash mine every two to three weeks! (And if I had more time, I’d do it weekly!) CLEAN YOUR BRUSHES LADIES! (And your beauty blenders too! <3) 

There’s always a handful of beauty products I’m dying to buy & try! Below are some products on my current list/some of my favorite beauty products that I use everyday! This makeup brush set & air brush system are two things I DYING to get my hands on the second I’m feeling rich!
