We just had a round robin training for the Southern VA district Ulta Beauty Salon Managers at my store and it was awesome! That’s where these January product reviews came from….we got so much information and some great product demos that I’m super excited to share with everyone! Featured this month are products from Living […]
The Dyson hair dryer was among one of the most requested items by shoppers at Ulta Beauty this year. Of course, people were shopping for makeup and skin care products, but I’m in the salon so I get a lot of questions about hair tools and products. Surprisingly, it wasn’t women who were stopping by […]
So far….Julep’s Matte Lip Mousse is my absolute favorite matte lip color! I’ve always been a big fan of lip tints and sheer glosses, but it’s so hard to find something that’s not too shiny/sticky. I know…you’re thinking that lipstick is the answer…but it’s not. I don’t enjoy wearing lipstick(maybe it’s the taste or the […]
Waterproof makeup is hard to find, and that’s probably because there’s no reason why anyone should be wearing makeup to the pool or beach. There are a lot more options these days, but some of them are pricey! I suggest using waterproof makeup only when you really need it, and your usual makeup products for […]
Most people think of wax warmers and nightlights when they hear about Scentsy. Scentsy beauty products make great gifts and are perfect for pampering yourself! If you’re looking for skin care that does more than just moisturize, then you’ll love these products. They have so much more than skin care products, and I notice something new […]
Are you looking for the best hairsprays? Hairspray can make or break a great hair day! A bad hairspray can do even worse….ruin the blowout that you styled so well. There are SO many different hairsprays out there, so it can be hard to find the one that’s right for you. I’ve tried them all, and […]
Are you looking for the best mousse products? There are SO many different mousses out there, so it can be hard to find the one that’s right for you. I’ve tried them all, and some are amazing while others are too sticky! Before I went to cosmetology school mousse was something that I only used […]
Which products are the best root boosters? It depends on your hair type, how you style your hair, etc. Root boosters come in spray form, spray mousses, and even sometimes a powder form. I consider the powders and foams to be in their own category, and the spray mousse to be just a mousse….not necessarily […]
Beauty Tip #32: Brush Your Skin It’s very important to exfoliate and moisturize your skin regularly! This is one of the most common tips that you’ll hear celebrities talk about when asked what their “secret” is. I know what you’re thinking….the secret is plastic surgery. That’s not always the case, and you can usually […]
I LOVE to organize, but sometimes I get a little too hung up on looking for the perfect item to complete my project. I’ve been looking for a month or so for the perfect storage solution in my laundry room. I have one shelf that isn’t very wide and a lot of space above it. […]
