Makeup on a Time & Money Budget

BLOG, My Life / Thursday, April 7th, 2016

I’m back!!!

So much has been going on and I am so excited to share what has been happening, but let’s start with this…if you follow me on social media, you know that I am helping Motives Cosmetics with a “Beauty in All Ages” Campaign.

I am having a BLAST!  I am meeting with women over the young age of 35 and providing them with guidance and solutions.

Beauty at all ages

I am teaching women that it doesn’t take a lot of time, or makeup to enhance their beauty.  I am teaching women how makeup doesn’t have to be scary.  I am teaching women how to care for their skin.  I am teaching women that they can customize a routine that fits in to their lifestyle.  I am teaching women to see what we see when we look at them.

I am making them FEEL beautiful and I am passionate about making others beautiful!  Have you been able to see the before and after pictures of these amazing women?  They have been so brave and have been allowing me to post their pictures on social media, unedited!  Real women, real pictures!

Something else I have been busy with is, I have been collaborating with other makeup artists across North America, and every month we are creating a different blog post. This month is a “5 Product Face”.  Which I love because, not only does it show more uses for each product, but it’s budget friendly and can also save time.

Now, this was a challenge for me, but if you know me, I LOVE a good challenge!  So, as I planned for this month, I started thinking…One of the questions that many ask me is when I do their makeup:  How long does it take you to do your makeup?  I hear a lot of guesses, 1 hour, 30 min, 20 min…So I thought this would be a perfect time to prove that it doesn’t take me that long, in fact, it took me less than 5 minutes!  I even made a video for you all to see 🙂


I think that is the first time that I ever shared my before & after picture!!  And I also qualify for the campaign, but I’m not revealing my age…at least not today 😉


I really liked the fact that it forced me to find uses for products that they aren’t thought to be used for.  I HAD to get creative on this.  Do you want to know which 5 products I chose?  You can find a list complete here

Do you want to see what the other makeup artists used for their 5 products?  You can read the entire blog post here

Oh, and I almost forgot!  If you, or anyone that you know wants to participate in my Beauty in All Ages Campaign, please contact me at  I have a pretty big goal, so help me hit it!!
