To Prime or Not to Prime

I have been working like crazy lately, long hours, napping and school lastly. Makeup primer has become my new bff.

First of, what is a primer? A primer creates a barrier between your skin and your make-up. It can improve the coverage and help the foundation lasts longer on the skin. When do you apply primer? Primer is applied after you cleanse, tone and moisturize. It is also important that you do not apply primer too often as it can clog pores. Also, make sure to only apply primer where it tends to rub off easily, but all over works too.
Using primer is great for when you know you will be out for long hours or working long hours. It keeps your makeup set for hours without having to retouch your makeup so many times throughout the day. Give it a try and you will love how smoothly your makeup will go on.
I have a few that I love and adore. Keep in mind I have oily skin type. My all time favorite is Benefit the POREfessional because it also minimizes my pores and gives my skin a soft canvas to play with. I mentioned a few more for different skin types down below.

Love Is In The Air

Valentines for my boyfriend and I is always a big deal since our anniverssary is so close to Christmas and New Years. We tend to go out for dinner for our anniverssary and do it BIG for valentines. This year we stayed at the Hilton Rockwall which was beautiful. I received flowers and some homemade cake pops that my boyfriend made with his own manly bare Afterwards we went horseback riding and enjoyed the night out in a boat to see fireworks, ver romantic. We ended the night at a Tex Mex restaurant nearby but honestly we were beat by like 10 p.m. How sad! I think were getting old. Well I hope everyone had an awesome day and enjoyed it with their loved ones.

A Day For Love

It is that time for heart attacks and sweet candy. This time is for bringing loved ones and friendships closer. To have an excuse to dress cute in reds and pinks. Most men hate this time of year and see no point but for many is a special day to tell the person you love how much you love them. Down below will be ideas on food, nails, and outfits. I cannot wait for the love in the air.
