Happy Monday, y’all! Did you have a nice weekend? Can you believe it’s going to be AUGUST tomorrow?!?!?!?!? Flashes, I tell ya. The years just feel more and more like flashes these days.
Today, I invited my friend Rachel from Shades of Blue Interiors over to guest post. She did a makeup tutorial in her Insta-stories a couple weeks ago and I insisted she come over here and show y’all all the hows, whats and whys too. She always looks so fresh-faced, and her eyebrows deserve some kind of award if you ask me. 😉 So without further ado…here’s Rachel!
I’m excited to be guest posting here today and also a little nervous. Ya see, this is my first time posting anything beauty-related on my or anyone else’s blog. I normally blog about home decor, DIY, and furniture building, on Shades of Blue Interiors. I’ve always loved makeup, and even worked as a beauty consultant for a couple years, teaching mini-classes and periodically doing wedding makeup, but I’ve always kept those interests separate from my blog. However, after getting lots of questions about it on Instagram, and showing a snippet of my daily routine in my Insta-stories a couple weeks ago, Layla convinced me to do a guest post!
Let me just start by saying I think good skincare is the best thing you can do for your face– it gives you a smoother and cleaner ‘canvas’ before you apply anything. This makeup routine of mine looks good at any time of the year and can easily go from day to night by just changing up the eye shadow a little and/or using a different lipstick.
Products Used (some affiliate links used):
Note: I linked to my friend Janette’s Mary Kay page below for those who don’t already have consultant and are interested in checking out the MK products I use. She’s here in Missouri, and ships things super fast because she has lots of everything, but there are local consultants everywhere if you’d rather find one that’s close to you.

And that’s everything! To see a longer version of this video, check it out on my YouTube Channel. Thanks so much for watching and have a great week!
Is she good at that or what?! 😀 My favorite is the highlighter. And the eye brows. 😉
Y’all, I’m really loving the idea of branching this blog further into all-things “lifestyle” so that I can share a little bit more of everything around here. Home, family, beauty, food, fashion, travel- sound fun? Those tabs at the top of my home page could use a little updating anyway. Happy week!
