Cartoon lips - teaser for full face comic book look for Halloween


I had so much creating this fun and easy look. I will be sharing the tutorial soon for what this look will be helping to create. 

Step 1. I find it easiest to start off with clean and dry lips. I use my rodan + fields lip micro-dermabrasion. It scrubs off all the dead skin cells and leaves my lips feeling so smooth. 

Step 2. I apply one layer of stiff uppper lip stain. This is the color "skittish" from Younique. I really love how bright and pretty this color is. 

Step 3. I line the outside of my lips with the precision point eyeliner is the shade "perfect". 

Step 4. I also lined the inside of my lips as well. 

Step 5. I drug out the inner liner a little in random spots. 

Step 6. I added some "highlights" with my precision eyeliner in "pristine". 

Step 7. Layered it with "loyal" lip gloss and voila! Super easy and super cute. 

So all of the products I used can be found at I had fun creating this look and please feel free to share yours with me if you recreate it!

Back to School: One year of changes

Look how adorable my sweet babies were for their first day of Kindergarten. They were so excited for school to start. They've been each other's best friend since birth and all the together-ness (is that even a word?) was driving them a little crazy. We opted to have them in separate classes and it helped them become their own person so much! KT had aspirations to be a teacher and KP's goals were to be a chef or a "cooker" as she called it. 

We went through so many changes in one year, I switched career paths, their dad was promoted in his job as well. We bought our first house,  KT had her 2nd cranio related surgery, we traded in a car, the girls went tubing for the first time,  we gained two little fur babies, started my own business and so so much more that I couldn't even begin to put into words. 
Our new home, isn't it so cute!?

Enjoying a little time at Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri.

ANNNNNNNNNNND here is my "babies" on their first day of 1st Grade. They will be 40 and I'm sure I will still call them my "babies". They grow up so fast!

Splurge cream eyeshadow........holy smokes, I'm in love with it!

So let me start of with that I am absolutely in love with this color. This is the first Splurge cream eye shadow that I've bought and does not disappoint. It is this really beautiful purple color, you can apply lightly or add more on for an intense effect. In this pictures I did a smoky eye by adding the mineral pigment "devious" in the outer corner and crease. This purple really shimmers in the sunlight, it lasted me all day long too!

Tips and Tricks when applying, because of all the beautiful glitter in it, I did my eye makeup first and then applied foundation to get that flawless look. I topped it off with "loveable" lip gloss from Younique as well.

New Business Adventures

So this year I decided to set out on a new business adventure. I joined Younique, it is a naturally based cosmetic company that does not test on animals. 

I tried their 3D Fiber Lash mascara from a friend. When I went to purchase my own, I saw that you could join for $99 and get a pretty awesome kit that included the mascara. So I kit-napped it and that was my only intention, get an awesome kit and enjoy a little discount on products I needed to buy. But sponsor added me to all these private groups, support groups, idea groups and I was completely blown away. I was blown away by the support of other women actually helping each other out even if they weren't on the same "team". Then I tried more products and fell in love with them and knew I needed to share their awesomeness with all my friends. So now my business is doing successful. I get paid to share awesome products with my friends. I get paid to take all those selfies. It was the best $99 I could have spent on myself.
 So now is the time to join this amazing opportunity. Right now until Sept. 1, 2015 the kit is valued at over $250 and you can get it for only $99, free website, no monthly fees, and an added bonus of the y-sisters. 
Visit my website at to view all of the products or to join my team!

Halloween on a budget

So this year we had Halloween on a budget. The girls loved their costumes and I've spent under $10. I bought KP's last year on clearance for a few dollars. So this year it was still brand new in the package and she didn't know different. KT ended up wearing a bride dressup outfit we had at home and I painted her face. So this year all I spent was money on the face paint!
