Wax On, Wax OFF

Just wanted to let everyone know about an awesome new place to get your wax on, or more like off. There's a new place called European Wax Centers here in the valley (and if you're not in AZ, there are several locations around the US, so check out their website for locations). It's a whole salon dedicated only to waxing. And the prices are unbeatable! So whether you're in need of a brow or brazillion, I'd definitely check out European Wax Centers! They're AZ location is off of Thompson Peak & Frank Lloyd Wright. Make sure if you go in, you let them know I referred you, because they have an awesome referral program. Every referral gets you $10 of store credits! And if you sign up for a membership you get 30% off waxes, and 20% off their products.

Happy Waxing!

Summer Lovin!

Hello everyone! Long time, no blog.

It's officially summer (at least it is here in Phoenix. 100+ degrees from here on out. Blech!). Here are my favorite summer must haves.

Braids. Love this look on Lauren Conrad. Combined with the side pony tail, it's super cute. Also, pigtail braids are one of my go to hairstyles in the summer.

Falsies. These Andrea Mod Lash lashes are great. You'll need some lash glue, and you should be able to get a couple uses out of these if you save them afterwards. You can find these at any drugstore. I beleive they're about $3.49 a pack.
MAC's Mineralize Skinfinish. Apply this on top of your blush, at the top of your cheekbones ans swoop a little toward your temple and it'll leave a slight shimmer.

MAC's Studio Fix Fluid Foundation. This is my new favorite foundation. It's great for the hot summer days. It's a matte finish, which is great if you sweat a lot. It won't leave you oily or sweaty looking. Love it!

Pink Lipstick is so in right now! My favorite is MAC's Impassioned. It's bright, and leaves a smooth finish. I like to pair it with MAC's cranberry lip liner. If this is too bold for you try Skew, which is a similar color, but not as bright. For a softer pink lip, try Faux.

Try a combination of these! Start with the Studio Fix Foundation, add a light natural eye with the falsies, then contoure your cheeks with some bronzer, and add some soft pink blush, like MAC's Well Dressed (my personal favorite), throw some Skinfinish on top of that, and go bold with the Impassioned lipstick and you're ready for a girl's night out on a hot summer night. Dos Gringos anyone?

Enjoy the summer and try to stay cool everyone!
