BowTube – Recent Favorites and a Giveaway.

A collection of photos of Tara with some of her Recent FavoritesHey there everyone,

I haven’t done a favorites post in forever (literally forever). I’ve been loving making videos (Vlogs, beauty videos.) recently so I figure there wasn’t a better way to share some things I’ve been loving with you.  Including my new blue hair.  What?!  Oh yeah, and I’m hosting a little giveaway.

FOTD – Cheap and Cheerful Spring Time.

drugstorefotd A photo of makeup products  all from the drugstore that Tara used in her makeup look Hey there bow friends! Ahh, spring time! Well, in Florida it’s basically summer, but I’m finally getting into the spring time mood.  I ended up doing some really simple and quick makeup before work the other day and came to two realizations.  1. It was super springy and fresh looking. 2. Every single thing I used was drugstore which was really exciting. Continue reading

BowTube – No Heat Curls For Summer.

Conair Pillow Soft Rollers

Hey there bow friends!

It always seems that around the spring time I get really into princess, curly hair.  Last year, I shared my favorite products for getting awesome curls, but now that I have bleached ends, I really wanted to find a way to get those curls without using heat.  Now I know what you’re thinking, everyone and their mother posts a no heat curls post/video.  It’s true.  The thing is those braids, twists, and knots never offer consistent results or really work well with my hair type.  So you can imagine how happy I was when I found the Conair Pillow Soft Rollers.

E.l.f. Smudge Pots.

Some purple lilies with the e.l.f. smudge pots in Cruisin's Chic and Let It Go

Hey there bow friends!

I’m constantly looking for products that are easy on my wallet as well as easy to use everyday.  When I think of the perfect everyday product, I think of something that does all the work for me.  I want to apply it 1,2,3 and have it look fabulous all day and all night.  When I picked up these cream shadows, I had very low expectations and didn’t think they would out perform my favorite everyday eye products.  Who would have thought the e.l.f. Smudge Pots would be my new daily eye look champion?

#MarchMatteness Bold and Bronze.

An assortment of matte bronzersHey there bow friends!

Today’s #MarchMatteness post is all about getting bronzed up and contoured with some of my absolute #1 matte bronzers. After going through matte blushes and powders it seemed only fitting that bronzers come into play.  Some of my favorites come from Tarte, NYC, MAC, Flower Beauty, and Wet N Wild.  For me they fall into three categories: only contouring, only bronzing, and multitaskers.

#MarchMatteness The Ultimate Powder Round Up.


L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Powder, Palladio Rice Powder, Laura Mercier Mineral Powder, Maybelline FIT Me! Matte and Poreless Pressed Powder, Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder, NYC Smooth Skin BB Radiance Powder, MAC Studio Fix Powder.Hey there bow friends!

It wouldn’t be #MarchMatteness without talking about powders.  I’ve used all sorts of powders at this point in my makeup life and I’ve found that all powders perform in different ways.  Some act as complete mattifiers, some eliminate oil and shine while keeping a natural look, and some just set the makeup and allow for your natural shine to come through.  Today we’re going to be exploring all kinds including powders from Palladio, Rimmel, MAC, NYC, L’Oreal, Laura Mercier, and Maybelline (By the way, I don’t get any flashback with any of these powders in photos.).

#MarchMatteness Matte Drugstore Blush Picks.

A photo of an array of matte blushes from the drugstoreHey there bow friends!

Today’s #MarchMatteness is all about matte blushes.  Even better, all of these blushes are drugstore and under the $10 mark.  I’ve tried bunches of matte blushes and have found that so many of them are chalky and not at all pigmented.  Fortunately, Milani and e.l.f. makes some absolute winners.

#MarchMatteness Jordana Modern Matte Lipsticks.

Jordana Modern Matte Lipsticks in Matte Dare and Matte It Girl

Hi there bow friends,

I’ve got another set of drugstore lip products for #MarchMatteness, the Jordana Modern Matte Lipsticks.  I haven’t found very many matte lip products that I like from the drugstore, so I’m always up to trying something new.  I have a couple of star products from Jordana like the Best Lash Extreme Mascara and the Twist and Shine in Honey Love so I had pretty high expectations for these lipsticks.
