Makeover: Hope & Jenna

Hope and Jenna are two of the sweetest people I know!  I have going to miss them and their family when we leave Hawaii.  They have a heart of gold. I got to know them through a women’s bible study I was invited to through a mutual friend. They have a true love of people, family, and most importantly Jesus and it shines through everything they do.

They are currently serving youth in teaching the gospel of Christ this summer through World View.  You can learn more about them here.

Hope:  she’s the older sister and such a sweet spirit.  She doesn’t wear a lot of makeup so we went with more of a natural look.

WELCOME TO MY NEW ADVENTURE!

WELCOME TO MY NEW ADVENTURE!

Welcome to my NEW blog!  I am a California girl adjusting to life in Hawaii.  I know you are thinking, it’s not a huge adjustment, but you’d be surprised!  The grass is always greener-as they say.  Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE IT here but I now appreciate Norther California more.

This blog is about the beautiful things in life with a focus on makeup.  I’ve decided that I need to put my insomnia and HOURS of Pinterest browsing to good use, actually put some of those skills I read about into action, track my progress as I learn new tricks, and keep myself accountable to actually following through instead of getting sucked into binge watching the latest season of Orange is the New Black!  Another favorite time suck is pretty much anything on the USA Network.

For my first post, I thought I’d keep it short and sweet with some of my current obsessions!

1.  These mineral eye shadows from Mary Kay!  I have a tutorial in the works on how to use them and why Stone is my new favorite shade.
2.  This manicure from Butter London-lasted 5 days without chipping and since then I have had 2 last 6-7.  More to come in a later post.
3.This tinted lip balm from Mary Kay.  Lip stick has never really been my thing.  I am more of a gloss kind of girl but this gives a hint of color.  Atomic Red is my favorite.
4.  I am a sucker for a good deal and these are 2 of the best around!  Be prepared to see more from both of these companies
5. In my opinion this is the best under eye concealer I have found!  It’s light weight with a moisturizer built in and designed not to settle in those fine lines that we get in the very thin skin surrounding out eye.  I double its use as a highlighter as well

Now, what would  a blog about makeup be without a few makeovers?!  Below are some past makeovers.  Enjoy!
