Hey y’all! TGIF! I’ve recently had some readers ask me what my every day makeup items are and what my routine is! Foundation 4 years ago I was introduced to Jane Iredale, and I am absolutely obsessed. I use their 4 step system for my foundation. I start by applying the Smooth Affair Primer for normal skin, follow with a pea sized amount of the Glow Time BB cream in BB6 (I apply this with a flocked sponge!) and then the Amazing Base mineral powder in Warm Sienna applied with a powder brush. Lastly, I use their Smell the Roses setting spray. This system is soRead More →

It contains soothing essential oils that smell heavenly and also help to calm theRead More →

Hi Ashli! I am newly pregnant and I am very concerned about preventing stretch marks. Are there any effective products on the market and is there anything I can do to prevent them? Thank you so much.

Currently, there are no proven products on the market to prevent them, and in many cases they appear to be genetic.Read More →
