Tinted Moisturizer Hack


by Caroline Hurley
I'm all about simplifying my life and this holds true when it comes to my make up routine. I'd rather limit myself to five great products than ten okay ones. By now we're all familiar with the tinted moisturizer, bb cream, cc cream, (is there a dd cream now?) craze. I really like the concept of these products.  Since I work from home there isn't a need for me to have full on make up or hair done every day. BUT I feel better about my day if I make a small effort with my hair and make up Read more [...]

Five Times You Should Apply Chapstick (but probably don’t!)


by Caroline Hurley
If you've read some of my blog posts before I have talked about my annoying dry skin. I go back and forth between trying to get silky smooth skin and just giving up and accepting it. With dry skin inevitably comes dry lips. I never noticed how prone I am to dry lips until I got a little older and occasionally wore lip color. Lip color and dry lips is a horrrrrrrrible combination.

by Caroline Hurley
Highlighting and contouring is such a great thing isn't it? The only problem is it can be kind of complicated. If your contour shade is too orange it just looks strange!

I believe mine is by Covergirl.   I filmed a video of my make up application process for highlighting and contouring from start to finish. Yep...I'm putting myself on the internet with no make up on. Hello world! This is just Read more [...]

The Correct Order to Apply Make Up


by Caroline Hurley
  Make up is make up no matter the order you apply it right? Wrong. I'll try to explain this in a way I would paint a picture. When I paint a picture I typically work with the darker colors and shadows first. Then I apply highlights and lighter shades on top of it. When blending colors together I again start with the dark and go to the lighter shades. This is how I was always taught in my art classes. Applying make up is essentially "painting" your face and the same rules apply. Many Read more [...]

Valentine’s Day Hair and Make Up


by Caroline Hurley
  Valentine's day is right around the corner and I think it's a great day to have some fun with your hair and make up. I probably wouldn't wear my hair this way for date night but I think it's a cute way to celebrate Valentine's day during the day whether you have a valentine or not . In my mind it's a day to wear a ton of pink or red. I've never been a huge pink girl but it's certainly a romantic color and there is no better day than Valentine's day for that. This is what I used for Read more [...]
