#justgirlythings

Life has been consisting of a lot of girly things lately, and I could not be happier; I have been putting in a lot of hours at Posh Boutique & Smart Bomb Beauty Lounge, spending time writing and planning future posts (which I know you’re all going to be excited about),and  I have started doing makeovers on a semi-regular basis, etc. It has been a total blast getting to do so many things that I love all at once! Since one of those things is doing makeup, I have got to keep my beauty game in check! I’ve been getting in the groove of putting myself together most days and I owe it all to some kick ass products I’ve been using.

Here’s 5 everyday beauty products that have been giving me serious life lately:

 

1. Ardell Lashes “Wispies”

These eyelashes impact me in a positive way on a daily basis (okay, that’s a little bit dramatic, but they kind of do). I have some issues with my eyelashes. They are blonde (opposite of my actual hair color), short, and they really don’t curl all too well either. Oh, and I ripped half of them out on my left eye with an eyelash curler while driving one time. Beauty is pain right? Anyways, these lashes really are the bomb.com. I get mine at Kroger for $2.87 and I usually try to buy multiple pairs to keep stocked up on.

 

2. Platinum Blonde Shampoo, Paul Mitchell

About 9 weeks ago, I decided to take the plunge into the blonde realm at the skilled hand of Kristina Shwann (I’m planning to feature her in a style post sometime down the road, she’s absolutely wonderful). Since the first dip, I’m on my way to being platinum, and this shampoo is helping me along beautifully. It is a vibrant purple shampoo to keep away the brassiness and send me packing to platinum planet. Eek, is the blonder the better really true? It costs about $20 at your local salon.

 

3. Velvety Matte Lip Crayon in Rosey Nude, Sonia Kashuk

I found this fabulous lippy  the other day, and I couldn’t be happier with it! There is a pretty wide range of all different types of nudes, from Pinky Nude (which I got) to Poppy Nude. They go on super smooth and don’t have that overly dry matte feel like some do. The color is perfect for a lazy day, or even for a glam day with a smokey eye. And BONUS! It’s only $7.59 at Target.

 

4. Silicone Eyeliner Brush, Real Techniques

Achieving a Cat Eye Liner is no easy trick, and it takes quite an amount of practice. I am one of those that has put in some serious hours trying out countless eyeliner pencils, liquid eye liner sticks, and brush on gel liners. Finding this brush brought an end to that search. I now use the Maybelline Eye Studio Gel Liner in black (I’m indifferent about it, any suggestions on a new smooth gel liner?) and a MAC Paint Pot in Rich Ground as my go-to gel liners, but this brush has made all of the difference. I can achieve the thinnest to the thickest cat eye depending on which part of the brush I apply pressure to. Overall, this brush has made my #cateyelinergamestrong. I owe it all to Kroger for $5.99, thanks!

 

5. Bombshell Elixir, Smart Bomb Cosmetics

I know that I just did a post about my Smart Bomb favorites, but I have to owe it to this elixir to made the top of two of my lists. I look forward to the morning when I get to lather up in my maple syrup smelling moisturizer and take on the day. I can’t believe how smooth my skin feels, and my oil production has really been balancing out lately. Stay tuned, I’m going to be posting a Promo Code for a FREE Limited Edition Eyeshadow Duo from SmartBombCosmetics.com with the purchase of either a Bombshell Elixir or SmartElixir ($32). You guys really need to try this stuff out, it will change your life!

 

With all this getting ready I’ve been doing, I spend a lot of time in the bathroom. And if I’m in the mirror primping, chances are I have some music blaring in the background. Here’s been my summer playlist for jamming out in the bathroom, by the pool, and with the windows down (CAUTION: This playlist can cause you to get a little too excited while doing your cat eye liner and end up with wings big enough to make you fly)

I’m just going to give you guys a heads up about this post, it’s a total shameless plug and a fabulous one at that.   

I have been so excited to do a post about this (most of you probably couldn’t care less). Skincare is very important to me. It’s difficult to be a successful makeup artist and not be trained to take care of the skin underneath. I once upon time was a Clinique girl, but I have officially fallen in love with my skincare routine from SmartBomb Cosmetics. It has quickly made a change in not only my skin but also my mindset. I have become wary about the products I’m putting on my skin on a daily basis.  I have never been one to be concerned with the origination of so many products that I use, from foundation to frozen pizza (I REALLY love pizza). For those of you that know me outside the internet, or maybe those of you who keep up with me on my Instagram (@sassykassi11) know that I have a special place in my heart for leather shoes and fur coats. So when Miss Laura told me that all of her skincare products were formulated with all 100% organic ingredients, I was a little wary as the natural life is not typically the life for me. Her products are also completely vegan-friendly and animal-cruelty free.

While I have switched into almost the full line of skincare, here’s some of my favorites:

1. Bombshell Elixir This is one of the most unique products I have ever used. Never did I think that day would come when I would be using oil as a moisturizer, but I can’t go a day without it now! It has a unique formula of Emu Oil, Jojoba Oil, and Tamanu Oil that really helps to actually balance out my oil production through the day. I use it as my moisturizer just in the morning, then go on to alternate between the AHA Night Cream and the Vitamin C Night Cream.

2. Smart Attack Serum This stuff is the shit. Flat out. It has a combination of Emu Oil, Jojoba Oil, Rosewood, Bergamot, and other essential oils. During the day, I use it as a spot treatment on areas that are already broke out or are breakout prone. At night, I use a thin layer over almost all of my face. I have noticed the biggest difference in my overall skin quality, as it not only works to rid breakouts faster, but they are not as severe. By far my favorite product!

3. “Get Out” Pore Scrub Coconut Oil to the rescue (yet again).  This Coconut Oil based scrub, used once a week, is a miracle worker. It works to get all that dead gunk deep down in the pores to bring it to a head over night. Just scrub on, wear it like a masque for 20-30 minutes, then use a sponge to wipe off and massage into the skin. Not only does it get rid of all the junk, it also works to nourish the skin overnight as well. Bravo, coconut oil!  

What’s super cool about this line, is that as much as you read about it, it won’t change your skin until you try it! It’s something truly amazing and my skin couldn’t be thanking me any more! Go visit Smartbombcosmetics.com and read about her products, and we’ll send you customized free samples so you can try it all out on your own! Also, this week, I got the be the lucky gal on the bomb squad who recorded our first Youtube Channel tutorial video! I give just an overall guide to our products and how to get the Smart Bomb glow. So go check it out! It’s a little rough and it’s made me realize how weird my voice sounds. Does anybody else hate how they sound on camera? Anybody have any tips for regulating your on-camera voice?   Go watch the video, and let me know what you think 🙂
