Beauty Routine

Today I am linking up with Momfessionals to spill all of my beauty routine secrets!

 My beauty routine is far from complex.

I am a shower in the evening type of girl. I have found it makes my mornings way less stressful! I am a total Aveda junkie. I usually wash my hair every other day and I always flop between using Blue Malva Shampoo and Conditioner (for blonde color treated hair) and damage remedy shampoo and conditioner. 

Once I hop out of the shower I always run a dime size drop of It's A 10 and Moroccan Oil through my wet hair. These are my absolute favorite products to help put the moisture back in my hair and prevent it from looking like straw. If they don't do the trick, I love using Aussie's 3 Minute Miracle to bring my locks back to life! 

When I wake up  I like to start my morning out with a fresh cup of joe, and lounge in my robe. I secretly love wearing my robe. 

Next on the list is putting on my make-up. On a normal day my make-up routine consist of:
1. Applying a very light coat of liquid foundation
2. Putting a dash of blush on my cheeks
3. Applying mascara

On special occasions I whip out my Naked 2 palate and add a little eye shadow to the mix.

I love using different sizes of brushes when attempting to master the "smokey eye" look. I use master very loosely. I usually come out looking like I have a black eye! I am far from being a make-up artist, but it's certainly entertaining to try! 

I am madly in love with my Chi straightener. I put a lot of trust in this little guy to turn my frizzy wanna be curls into something a little more tame and classy.

I love using it to curl my hair too! Here is a great tutorial I stole off of YouTube that explains how to transform your straightener into a curling iron! Seriously the most practical thing ever.

When I am all done with my hair and make-up I go straight for the accessories! Love adding pops of color into my outfit to spice things up a bit! 
I use a ceramic egg crate to store all of my earrings! 

I am obsessing over how cute this yellow egg crate is from World Market. 

I bought an old coffee mug tree from a thrift store and gave it a few coats of spray paint to freshen it up. It is now home to all of my bangles and bracelets. 

I will be giving you all a tutorial on my necklace holder sometime in the near future so stay tuned! 

What's your beauty routine secrets? I can't wait to hear all of your suggestions!


  1. Oh Mads you have been Killing it in the blogging department! Also I LOVE it's a 10! Happy Birthday too!! Miss you!

  3. I just started using moroccan oil and it is life changing!
