My Top 5 Ride or Die Beauty Products.

I don't fall for beauty trends all that often. Perhaps it's my age but I know what I like. Fashion trends...yes, guilty as charged. Typically you will find me in a neutral lip or a bold lip. No in between but always matte. Lipgloss? Not so much, I kind of exhausted that in my late 20's but a strong lip...always!

Pop it like it's hot! #smartmeetsbeauty

What's new pussy cat? So MUCH! May is by far the busiest month for me personally and professionally.

With that said, you know I am nothing if I am not a multitasking momma on the go  which is why I want to introduce to you the newest lifesaver to my beauty collection. Meet Beauty by POPSUGAR!

Multi-tasking mommas use Ivory.

When I look at a 60-minute increment, a 30-minute increment, hand to God, I often think how many things can I accomplish in that time frame?

My Fall Beauty Picks. <11 of 'em!>

I've never been all too loyal to one particular beauty brand. That's changed quite a bit in 2017. I find myself reaching for the staples pretty frequently these days. Let's just say I've figured out who makes the best concealer. I know which matte lipstick stays on the longest and yes, it's worth your precious dollars to spend a little bit more when it comes to these items. Took me 39 years to figure it out but hey - better late than never.

Timeless skincare.

There's a few things that I prioritize when it comes to my skincare regimen...which are completely different from my priorities in my 20's. I suppose that happens. They are as follows:

  1. Anti-aging benefits
  2. Reasonably priced
  3. Ideal for oily skin
  4. Results

The last one is kind of obvious but hey, it needs to be said. ...and I found one that actually accomplishes all of the above: Timeless Skincare. You'd be amazed what $20 can do for your skin!
