Happy New Year!

hello everyone! it's so good to be back to bloggin'. these last two weeks have been crazy with family visiting, the holidays, and keeping my children (who are out of school) preoccupied. thanks for understanding.

to start off the new year let's begin with a makeup tip. i received some fun makeup stuff for Christmas but my favorite product was definitely the Beauty Blender.


this cute little sponge is Hollywood's secret to that flawless airbrushed look. by applying your makeup with a sponge, you will get great coverage and no harsh lines. to achieve a dewy fresh face, simply dip your sponge in some water, squeeze out the excess, and apply your foundation. by dampening your sponge first you will ensure that your foundation is applied with consistency and an even application, giving your face an overall flawless look.

xo,
kristie

ps. here is reader Jen's tip on how she gets her dewy skin (while saving money on product):

Immediately aftering showering apply moisturizer to face and then apply foundation with moisturized fingers to moisturized face. The foundation goes on smoothly and flawlessly. Let dry a couple minutes before applying more makeup.


thanks Jen!

  3. Without spending any extra money after the holidays I've found a way to get the dewy look for free. Immediately aftering showering apply moisturizer to face and then apply foundation with moisturized fingers to moisturized face. The foundation goes on smoothly and flawlessly. Let dry a couple minutes before applying more makeup.

  5. thanks for the tip. i struggle with choosing foundation. i have been using powder pretty much forever, but suddenly i have been breaking out-i thought i should have less zits as an adult-and the powder isn't providing as much cover as i would like. any tips you have on types, tricks, or how to choose the right color (which i also struggle with) would be great. love ya!

  6. Abs, i'll try to get a post together for you. i feel your pain about the adult acne. i'm pretty sure my acne has gotten worse with age. i blame it on hormones. they seem to get wonkier the older we get.
