You’ll quickly learn this, but I adore all things beauty. Makeup was my first love: I watched YouTube tutorials religiously as a teen, honing in my skills and eventually doing my friends’ makeup for school dances. In college, I became a makeup artist for weddings and special events, which took my knowledge to a new level and was quite the entertaining gig! While my job is different today, I still love soaking in all the beauty info I can in my free time and experimenting with new methods or products.
Part of this blog will consist of me sharing my tips and tricks in this department – everything from makeup, to skincare, to haircare. Important side note: I only use cruelty-free brands. If you have questions about products that aren’t cruelty-free, though, I will happily help.
Today, I am sharing my go-to, natural-yet-polished look. When I get ready for a typical work day, I want a look that takes me under ten minutes. The key to success with quick and easy makeup is finding products that require minimal effort to apply. Thankfully, brands are listening to the needs of gals on-the-go and frequently coming out with new, innovative products!
As you’ll see below, a new favorite brand of mine is Milk Makeup. The products I’ve tried are incredibly easy to work with, not to mention the ingredients are super nourishing – and NO, this isn’t sponsored, I am just a fan and want to share my positive experience with y’all.Here are my everyday essentials for a fresh-faced look:
