Show Us Your Life- Beauty Tips!

This week I'm linking up with Kelly's Korner but I have been really unsure of what to post about because I don't really do anything special! After reading several posts I decided to stop over thinking it and just join in! Sorry to those of you who just don't care about girly stuff! :)


I know this might sound gross but I usually wash my hair every other day! Back in June, I got a light weight perm and I had to wash it every day to keep it looking cute. 

I use Biolage shampoo and conditioner when I can and I love it! I accidentally bought their calming mint conditioner and it's amazing! I tend to have a drier scalp so it works really well for that. 

I started using a conditioning spray by Matrix Essentials. I love it! It makes my hair feel so soft. I also use it on Anna-Kate's hair to help keep the tangles in control. (She's a wild sleeper)

Okay so I usually just let my hair air dry for a bit so that when I use the blow drier it doesn't take so long. (I have super thick hair.) After I dry it I just run over it with my Chi iron to flatten it down so it doesn't look like a lion's mane. 

Beauty: (This is where I feel a little lost- I don't really do anything special!)

I wash my face every other day with St. Ives Apricot Scrub. 

As soon as I get out of the shower I use Aveeno lotion on my face. I know a lot of people feel like it's too thick but I can't stand lotions that are thin and runny. I've never noticed a problem with this being thick and breaking me out or anything. 

I even love their lotion for the kids too. It has oatmeal in it and I think that just seems to really help. 

Sometimes I notice I still have some mascara on my face, so I use Biore wipes to get that off. Those can really dry me out so I always put a little dab of lotion on after I use that. The wipes work great for when I smudge my mascara or sneeze right after I put it on! That happens to me a lot! ha. 

I use Bare Escentuals make up and I LOVE it! 

Sometimes I use just a tiny bit of Bonnie Bell's bronzer. I really love the color it gives and the little bit of shimmer. It's great in the summer! This little thing is so inexpensive and it last forever! 

So that's really what I use on a regular basis. My routine is just really simple but it works for me! :) 

What do you use? Share and link up with me at Kelly's Korner!

Just read your comment so I came by your blog:-)
Love this bronzer, I have been using it for a couple of years. I see you live in AR, they always have it at my local Walmart but I have found some of the Walmarts to not carry it! I was in Cincinnati for the summer and I couldnt find it anyhwhere.

I've used Bare Minerals for about 2.5 years. Love it! Do you use the foundation primer? It makes a big difference. :)

I posted my "Confessions of a Make-up Junkie". Lol.
