Who doesn’t like a fresh start? A new opportunity? A new chance? These are just some of the amazing things a lot of us look forward to in the New Year. This year my biggest goal is to travel more. I have a road trip and a Euro trip in the works, I have all of the outfits planned for these already ūüėČ as one always should! I am also working on advancing in my yoga practice. Yoga is something that has kept me centered over the last year and a half, and I want to find inner strength to make my practices more challenging.

Make up has always been one of my creative outlets, a form of self-expression, just like my outfits. There are days when I wake up in the morning, look at myself in the mirror and honestly wonder – “How am I going to go through the day?” Then I put some make up on and realize that “I actually turned out okay”. I am starting this year with some new make up products from Neutrogena¬ģ and a new makeup look. Flawless skin is not a myth, it is achievable with the right makeup and today I wanted to share my new routine for 2018. Remember to be creative with your makeup and if you don’t feel like applyng a specific product, save it for another day!

I have always loved and trusted Neutrogena¬ģ skincare products, so this year I am finally taking the next step and relying on Neutrogena¬ģ for my makeup needs. I feel like this is the brand that creates product with customers’ skin in mind. They use¬†quality ingredients and formulas, and the value when you spend money on Neutrogena¬ģ Healthy Skin¬ģ foundations as compared to more expensive options is impeccable. All of the products that I am using in this post are now available at Walmart, you can find the Healthy Skin¬ģ foundations for a better value than any other storefront.

For this look I will be using:


  • Healthy Skin Pressed Powder ($9.97 available in 4 shades) ‚Äď Suitable for All Skin Types, results in light-medium coverage, evens out skin tone, and has an anti-oxidant blend.
  • Healthy Volume Mascara ($7.47 available in 5 shades) ‚Äď Provides up to 400% fuller, clump free lashes. One of the key ingredients of the mascara is Olive oil, which helps condition the lashes as well.
  • MoistureSmooth Color Stick ($7.97 available in 14 shades) ‚Äď Moisturizing color that conditions lips, made of Mango & shea butter.
  • Healthy Skin Blends ($10.77 available in 2 shades)‚Äď for Sheer illuminating color, designed to enhance skin‚Äôs healthy glow, key ingredients are Vitamin C and botanical conditioners
  • And¬†Makeup Remover ($4.97) to take it all off at the end of day ūüėČ

Step 1: Start with a fresh face and apply Healthy Skin Pressed Powder all over. If you have oily or combination skin apply more product in those areas.

Step 2: Define your eyebrows.

Step 3: Use a neutral eyeshadow for that everyday look. Add eyeliner if you feel like it!

Step 4: Apply the mascara. It’s there for you to help open the eyes! Mascara is one of the products I always wear, even if I have zero time to get ready.

Step 5: Experiment and play around with highlighter and bronzer to define the cheekbones and nose. I never thought I would admit to it, but my cheeckbones are one of my favorite features.

Step 6: Finally bring it all together with Healthy Skin Blends and apply some lipstick. I’ve been into neutrals in 2017, so I am starting 2018 with deeper darker colors. This color is called Deep Plum.



I hope you all give Neutrogena¬ģ products a shot in 2018. Their vision is to be equal parts scientist and beauty expert. To do the kind of thorough research that inspires trust. To have products women want to share with their friends. To offer makeup that magnifies a woman‚Äôs confidence and gives her a range of looks-without ever eclipsing her true beauty. Their¬†products make you feel like you are doing the best for your skin, leaving your skin looking healthy and beautiful! And making you feel good in your skin.

Over the past week I’ve been detoxing. It’s not what you think! I’ve been detoxing my hair! It was so easy Neutrogena Anti-Residue Shampoo.

Now that fall is here, I want to make sure my hair is healthy and prepared for the season. This weekend I am traveling back to Minneapolis to see family, friends and check out Envision Anniversary Fashion Show. I need my hair to look and feel good, just one less thing for me to worry about! The great thing about Neutrogena Anti-Residue Shampoo is that it’s a product you can use as a weekly hair shampoo treatment and is safe for color-treated hair. I simply added this shampoo in as a part of my weekly hair care routine, and was very surprised by the difference. Funny thing is, I’ve always noticed this product in the store, but never tried it, until now.

I feel like I’ve been detoxing a lot, or trying to, lately. From my 3 day cleanse, to cleaning out my closet and getting rid of things and stuff that doesn’t make me happy, to updating my beauty routine, my move to Milwaukee is starting to feel more and more like a fresh start!

The cleanse kick is here to stay. I’ve been eating healthier (a lot of vegetables), working out more (free gym membership is probably one of the best perks I get at work), staying positive and happy (surrounding myself with positive people), using new beauty products (like the Neutrogena Anti-Residue Shampoo) and reorganizing my wardrobe (more solid, neutral colors that are timeless).

If you are a hair obsessed 20 or 30 something, you will appreciate Neutrogena Anti-Residue Shampoo. It helps remove all residue caused by other shampoos, conditioners and styling products. Thanks to its mild formula this shampoo is suitable for all hair types, and minimizes chances of causing irritation. My hair ends up feeling so soft and looks shiny every time I use this product!

I have a new once a week rule in my house:

Once a week I clean out and organize my closet, my beauty products and my apartment.

Once a week I wash my makeup brushes, my towels, my sheets.

Once a week I use the anti-residue shampoo by Neutrogena.

My Anti-Residue Moment: Is staying organized and tidy in all areas of my life.
