Smokey Eye

Smokey eye looks are very popular, but I don’t think it’s a really specific look? There are so many types of “smokey eye” looks. There really isn’t a rule on how to do them correctly. I think to qualify as a smokey eye you just have to fade your colors out and blend really well. For this look I used my Too Faced Chocolate Bar…..I LOVE that thing. It’s my favorite palette.

Skincare

I have really been blessed with good skin. I don’t have moles, blemishes, or acne. I do however have light freckles……… I don’t like my freckles, but I know that some people really like freckles. My freckles were much darker before I started using Obagi products. Other than my light freckles I have one spot of hyperpigmentation around my mouth that I get really self conscious about. It’s in such a weird spot so it’s hard to conceal with makeup. I was lucky enough to skip over the “pimple” years. Through the hormonal high school years I only had 4-5 pimples TOTAL.

I didn’t start taking care of my skin until I was 20. I’m a really low maintenance kind of person and I just didn’t see the point in skincare since I didn’t have any issues to begin with. I went to a dermatologist and they showed me these special pictures of the sun damage my skin had gotten over the years. Although I had great skin on the outside, this machine showed me that I actually had quite a bit of sun damage. From that point on I started taking care of my skin. I became a religious sun block wearer and I made sure to wash my face day and night. PREVENTATIVE skincare is the key. You don’t want to discover the damage in your 40’s, by then it will be nearly impossible to help. A good sunblock is the best skincare product. You can only disguise aging and skin damage for so long……..why not focus on preventing it?

Home Birth Talk

It’s a shame that this form of childbirth has been dying out. It’s a wonderful way to bring a baby into the world and our goal is to help educate the population about this option.
