Flashback to the 90’s

Hey Climbers,
How many of you remember the 90’s? Probably a few of you. I do! Especially when I watched Michelle’s newest make up and fashion video! Oh my goodness, I started recalling waking up early to catch Sailor Moon episodes, One Saturday Morning, playing with my Game Boy Color, eating French Toast Crunch (I about had a flip out in the local grocery store when I saw the box on the shelf!) and when I had Lisa Frank school folders, pens, pencils, notebooks, binders, and backpacks! Oh my gosh, I loved the 90’s and you can take a journey to the past with this tutorial that Michelle Phan created called: 90’s Nostalgia!

Have an awesome Monday everyone 🙂

Jump into Spring with This Beautiful Look

Now that the weather has finally decided to warm up here, I thought that I would share this beautiful spring look that Michelle Phan has created. Inspired by the butterflies that come out in spring ❤ Not only that, but she is using her favorite products that are cruelty free and she has a fun DIY at the end! ^_^

I believe that I will be giving this look a try today! Have an awesome Tuesday!
Love, Bailey

Acne Home Remedies?

Climbers! It is another Tuesday! We survived Monday again! (Virtual High-Five!)
Let’s talk beauty here for a second.
Acne more so than beauty.
Acne SUCKS! I know this, we all know this. What really sucks is when you spend your money on products that don’t seem to rid yourself of acne. Growing up, I cannot tell you how much money I have spent on acne products from Clean and Clear to Proactiv and NONE OF THEM WORKED! My acne would go away for a day or two and then come back full blast shortly. Then I turned to in home remedies.
First: Apple Cider Vinegar and Lemon toner (FAIL) … I tried this once and my face turned red like a tomato and it didn’t do anything for my acne.
Second: Oatmeal Mask (FAIL) … The only thing this mask did was make my skin softer and I used it more than two weeks, but it didn’t make my acne go away.
Third: Toothpaste Spot Treatment (ULTIMATE FAIL! NEVER RECOMMENDING THIS TO ANYONE!!!!!!) … I cannot stress how awful this one is. I used it one night, put a dab on a zit on my forehead and woke up with it almost gone. I was so excited that two days later, I put a bit of toothpaste on my chin (Had a really bad breakout). Next morning? MY CHIN WAS BURNT! It looked like I had a sunburn only on my chin! The skin began to flake a few days later…. I was devastated.
Fourth: Honey and Cinnamon mask (Fail…again) I once again looked like a tomato after one use.
Needless to say, I was done trying home remedies. It felt like I was damaging my skin and not doing a darn thing to help my acne.
This was when I chose to stop using acne face cleansers, toners, spot treatments, all of it! I was fed up. Instead I went to natural face cleansers that were 100% Organic and natural. Including my moisturizer. I noticed a HUGE difference in just changing from acne products! I began using lavender essential oil for my acne breakouts and WOW! The breakouts have reduced dramatically! I also stopped drinking soda, drink WAY more water, stopped eating junk foods and more greens, veggies, and fruit, and exercising on a regular basis! All of this has helped my skin faster and it feels more natural and healthier to go this route. I am also not spending so much on products that only make the acne come back not long after using it.
Every ones skin is different. It takes time to figure out what your skin needs and what will work with it. Don’t give up!
Have an awesome Tuesday!

My Current Morning Beauty Routine

Happy Saturday!
Today, I am going to do a little walkthrough on my current beauty routine. Why? Because I am random!
1. A clean canvas (face): I don’t wash my face in the morning, I do this at night. If anything I will rinse it with water and then moisturize with 100% Organic Argan Oil.
2. Foundation: I use a powder foundation and I put a light coat on, fairly basic.
3. Conceal: (No one better say ‘Don’t Feel’!) I put this on any blemishes, redness, and dark circles to create an even face.
4. Eye Shadow: I always say, the less the better. I use a taupe base, a brown to contour, and a rose gold on the inner eyes and on the center of the lids.
5. Liner: It depends on the day, but the most part, I use a skin tone liner on my water line to make my eyes look more awake.
6. Mascara: I curl my lashes then put a light coat of mascara on and brush them out to avoid clumps.
7.Blush/Bronzer/Highlighter: Sometimes I use all but I mostly use bronzer and highlighter to contour my face.
8. Lipstick: All I use is either clear gloss or a nude color.
And that’s it! I don’t like using a TON of make-up, I am a fan of the “Barely-There” look.
What I mostly love about all my products that I use is that they are all Cruelty-Free! I find that so important. If I don’t see the little bunny on it or anything that says cruelty free, I will not buy it.
Have an safe and awesome Saturday and Happy Easter! See you back here on Monday!

Bring out your Inner Aura

How beautiful is this look?? The idea that you can have your aura brought out in a photograph?? To me that is unreal but the fact that it can be done? Wow! Technology has come so far.
YouTube Beauty Guru Michelle Phan brings to life her inner aura by creating a look that reflects it. After this, I wouldn’t mind giving this a try myself :3
