Sometimes I will see a look on Instagram and want to try and recreate the look to give myself a challenge. Sometimes it’s not just for a challenge, but because I am feeling less creative and it helps to boost my creative juices. So, today’s looks is totally inspired by Jamie Genevieve. I am a grungy smoky eye kind of gal and she creates some awesome grungy, wearable, smoky eyes.PRODUCTS USED

I was recently browsing around the beauty section at Target and came across a whole area with Profusion products. They had all sorts of different styles of palettes just tempting me. I remember when I used to get their products from Walgreens and stopped using their stuff, not because of poor quality, but because of the poor ingredients. I decided to check out their ingredients now that they have resurfaced and I can say I am pleasantly surprised. No Mineral Oil , No Parabens, and Cruelty Free??? And less than $10.00? How can this be? I thought, surely they won’t wear well. So I decided to go ahead and try them out for myself. Well….retry them out.

I decided upon the Eye & Cheek palette. It has been a few days now that I’ve been trying out this palette and my thoughts are…..yes! Go buy it! It’s less than $10, stays on rather well, blends good, and can be used on multiple areas of the face. The cons: has kickback with a brush, a couple of colors don’t have good color payoff after blending, & the packaging is cheap. But again, it’s less than $10.00!!!

Side Note: I used this palette at 8am for my eye shadows, highlight, & blush. I cleaned and sweated my arse off prepping my house for a move, and got a compliment at the grocery around 7pm on my makeup. Good enough for me.

Up close and personal. Just look at how bright and beautiful the shimmer colors look. And that highlight is naturally stunning!


Finally broke out these Josie Maran Bear Naked nail wipes after stashing them in my pro kits for years. I put them in my kit for “emergency use” in case a client ever needed to remove polish last minute. I decided to clean out my kit a few months ago and threw this never used item into my travel bag. Today, in the middle of travels, I decided to remove my nail polish. I truly didn’t have high hopes for these wipes for two reasons. First, I have had them so long, I figured they’d be dried up. Second, I am big into acetone for my polish remover needs and this product is acetone free and had moisturizing/nourishing ingredients. Usually, I’m not impressed by polish removers that claim to nourish and that don’t contain acetone. Boy was I surprised! I am hooked ! I had to figure out where I could purchase them. My luck of course.

Originally I received these wipes in a packaged deal from Sephora. They no longer carry them there and I found them on Amazon.

Just for the record; It took me three pads to remove all of the red-orange polish off my toes.  It really could have been done with only two. They are also super moisturizing. My toes looked very hydrated afterwards.

I didn’t use them on my fingers but they were 5 times dryer looking before I used  the pads to remove my toenail polish. All the cleaning for my upcoming move has taken a toll on my poor hands.



Today I wanted to take you on a little tour of my first ever beauty room. I love this space so much and have always had all of my beauty products and furniture in my bedroom. I feel so blessed that to have my very own space in my home and I am very grateful for the fact that it is something that I will be able to have in my next home that we are in the middle of moving to. Let me know if you want to see that space once I get it put together!
