Happy new year Makeup Adventurers! How did you bring in the new year? We partied hard and had a ball. There was just so much to celebrate. 2017 was an amazing year for us and we are hoping that it was for you, too. We are so excited to keep expanding and growing throughout 2018. Just a year ago we put up our first post. I can’t believe this year went by so fast. We have so much for you all to look forward to this year. Let me tell you about it.
Hey ghosts and ghouls! Halloween is approaching. I am still working on my costume for this year. My husband and I usually dress up together. I think my favorite costumes were our pirate costumes. This year I have no clue of what we should do. I went online for some inspiration and found some really neat Halloween makeup tutorials. I thought it would be fun to share them with all of you.
Well hello, my darlings. I am so excited to tell you about the product that I’ve recently started using this month. I’ve written before about the condition of my skin so finding a good foundation with great coverage and a natural look has been challenging for me. I need something that isn’t too heavy or greasy. Like a lot of us, I like to appear natural without actually being natural. I also look for something that I can wear everyday and won’t break the bank every time I need to replace it.
Product of the Month
I have so much makeup and sometimes I don’t touch it for a while. Well, makeup expires just like anything else we eat or use. It’s important for us to know when we need to throw out our makeup so we don’t risk any kind of infection. I did a little research so we all could keep track of how long to keep our makeup. Makeup Expiration
I like to write the date that I open a product on a blank mailing label and stick it on my makeup products. Using the chart below along with the dates on my products, I can make sure that I don’t keep my makeup past the expiration time. The last thing I need is an infection. That is not a good look.

What is my favorite facial scrub? Before I get into that, can I just tell you how many products I went through? I’ve tried higher end, expensive products and I’ve tried drugstore products.

Hello there and happy Monday! So many people dread Monday mornings. The weekend is over and it’s back to work. Now, I have a job that I truly do enjoy, however, it requires a wake-up time of 2:30 am. I work at a gym and I have to be there by 4:30 am. I love that I get off early but by the time I get home, I’m exhausted and trying to fit my duties as a wife and mother in before I have to go to bed. In an ideal world, I would get to bed by 7 so I can get a full night’s rest. It never happens. I’m lucky if I’m in bed by 9. I love what I do. The gym that I work for changes lives and teaches healthy habits that our clients can take with them for the rest of their lives. [Read more…] about Get to Know Your Authors: Siobhan’s Dream Job
