Why you should consider a side hustle-unless you like living paycheck to paycheck! Before I get started, let’s talk about what a side hustle is exactly. Instead of getting a second job, a high number are starting their own businesses. It is not necessarily a […]
You might think you can skip applying sunscreen once the winter months begin. This is NOT a good idea. The sun’s harmful rays are still as active as they are during summer. Cool temperatures do not equal safe sun exposure. Here are four reasons why […]
One of the reasons that I LOVE the Holidays, is it’s an excuse to experiment with makeup a bit more than I normally would. Especially the eyes! Nothing says the holidays quite like glitter 😉
Here are a few of my favorite eye looks:

One of the best parts of the holiday season is the little things, like stocking stuffers! (Especially beauty stocking stuffers!) Fortunately, beauty supplies come in small but mighty packages. I’ve put together a list of some trending products and trinkets for you to add to […]
This month I want to help you get the perfect gifts for those hard to buy women. I did all of the work for you with these must have beauty bundles for this Holliday, so you don’t have to wonder what to put together!
Holiday Beauty Bundle
The Motives Boxed Beauty is an essential palette featuring six eye shadows and two blushes with a convenient mirror and brush inside. It’s the perfect gift for any fashionista who wants access to hot cosmetics at any time — and it’s got most of her beautiful face covered!
But what about her lips? The Motives MUAH Vanilla Lip Scrub is gentle yet an effective scrub that will help lips reach their full pout potential. It utilizes sugar to buff away dry skin to reveal supple, smooth lips, and I suggest following up with the Motives MUAH Vanilla Lip Mask. This is a leave-on lip treatment that seals in moisture and smooths for the perfect pout. She will also LOVE the Lumière de Vie Renewal Elixir! It’s a luxurious, superior facial oil that deeply moisturizes and reduces the appearance of aging for a youthful-looking, healthy glow. Who doesn’t want that?
You get her the entire bundle, and you can be sure this is a gift she’ll be sure to LOVE! And you may want to put a few of these products on your list. They sure make the prefect stocking stuffers!
I am also including a MOTIVES makeup bag with the purchase of each bundle
Here is how Motives Beauty Advisor Brittany Kimble used the new Holiday Beauty Bundle!
1. For the eye look, I started out using the Motives Eye Base over the entire lid.
2. Next I blended Motives Pressed Eye Shadow in Cappuccino in my crease as a transition color followed by the shade Vino on the lower outer V crease for some added warmth and depth.
3. Using the Motives Boxed Beauty Palette I applied the pink shade in the center of my lid.
4. I popped the purple shade between the center pink shade and Vino.
5. For my inner corner, I used the champagne color to bring a little more brightness. I also sprayed my brush with Motives 10 Years Younger Setting Spray for a more foiled technique.
6. The blush was absolutely beautiful along with the golden highlight shade in the palette, I absolutely LOVED it!!!
7. I finished out the look by filling my brows in with the Motives Brow Kit.
8. For my lips, which were insanely soft and smooth from the Muah Vanilla Lip Scrub and Mask, I used Motives Kohl Eyeliner-Coffee to line and blend into my lips followed by Motives Metallic Paints Pink Latte.
Here is how Motives Beauty Advisor Beauty Advisor Clarissa Jones used the Holiday Beauty Bundle!
1. I treated my lips with Motives Vanilla Scrub and Vanilla Mask after my skincare routine.
2. Fill in brows with dark brown in Motives Essential Brow Kit.

6. Blend Dark Brown eyeshadow from Boxed Beauty in outer V and inner eye.
7. Place Blue eyeshadow from Boxed Beauty in middle of the lid up to the crease.
8. Blend Dark Brown and Blue eyeshadow from Boxed Beauty on the lower lid.
