I couldn't have said it better myself. As women we love to shop, and even with a closet full of clothes we still find the need to shop. I'm not here to make you admit you have an addiction, but rather to assist you in buying essential pieces. The key to an amazing wardrobe is not having more options to choose from. When you shop you want to focus on buying staple pieces that you can style around. Style is something some are born with and others develop. Many of you may be able to put together an amazing look with ease, while others could use direction. Nevertheless, no one is too good to take a few pointers every now and then. I want to challenge you to look at your closet and pick out 5 of your favorite pieces. Once you have these pieces figure out what how you could take this look to the next level. If you picked out your favorite denim jeans then next time you go shopping look for a bodysuit that compliments them. Next you want to accessories maybe with a pair of cateye sunglasses and a pair of your favorite sandals. This look is very casual but it's all about choosing well, because if done right even a simple look can turn heads.
Eyeshadow base is essential for your makeup look. There are several types for you to choose from but these are my top 4 picks. My most used would be #3 MAC concealer, whenever I want a subtle soft look I use the concealer all over my lid. This technique can crease if you have oily lids or if you apply a thick layer. I would suggest using urban decay primer potion then apply the concealer over your eyelid using your ring finger. Nars smudge proof eyeshadow base is another great one for those of you who have oily lids or accidentally wipe your eyes smearing your makeup. This would word great on your eyebrows as well. Take a small bit on your fingers and lightly massage over your eyebrows before doing your brows to keep them in place ALL DAY! This next one is a bit newer and it's by one of my favorite beauty brands LIME CRIME !!! I absolutely love the packaging for all their products. The quality of their products are just as amazing. Lime crime's waterproof eyeshadow base will make your makeup POP and last until your ready to remove it. This product is a new holy grail makeup bag product. Lastly, we have NYX eyeshadow base. If you are on a budget or just don't like to splurge on makeup, then this is the product for you. NYX makeup is budget friendly and the quality is mind blowing. We all have heard you get what you pay for, but this product will change your perception. It will Magnificently intensify your eyeshadows and is long lasting. What more can you ask for ?

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and your wallet. Women spend about $15,000 on beauty products according to Mint. What if i told you that you can actually save money buying beauty products, while getting some for free. Yes for free! You can try out new products without wasting money on something you can't return. I'm sure you've been there, you buy a pricey beauty product to try out. Once you go home and try it out you hate it, but now that you've opened it you can't return it. If you want to know how I get free samples of beauty products ...
Excuse our profanity, hey we're human. Perfection is like happiness we are always in pursuit of it. When it comes to being happy we really don't need much to make us happy whether we realize it or not. Whereas perfection is like smoke and mirrors, it's unrealistic to say the least. Diamonds even have flaws, sorry Beyonce. It's okay to make mistakes, in fact that's the best way to learn. We often compare ourselves to others as if they are perfect or better than us. They might have more money, nice cars, but they are depressed behing closed doors. Kanye west once said we buy clothes when we don't really need 'em... the things we buy to cover up whats inside, What do you do to cover up your imperfections? I'm here to let you know its okay to be human.
