The first thing I always like to make clear when talking about makeup, is that when you chose to wear it, it should be for you. Not anyone else. I love it, because it tells the story of who I want to be on any given day. It’s artistry. I’ve always been creatively inclined, and I’ve seen myself as a canvas when it came to self-expression through clothing, hair, and makeup. Over the years I’ve created and perfected my go-to look. It may be a bit on the glam side for some, but I’ve always had a penchant for being a little extra. I think of my signature look as pin-up meets old Hollywood movie star, so if you’re into that kind of thing, here’s exactly what I am using to get it!

In the whirlwind of mommyhood, things tend to get, well...a little hectic. After all, most (if not all) of your free time is going towards a miniature person who is completely dependent on Y-O-U. This can be overwhelming to some who are trying to maintain some semblance of their much-wanted beauty routine. That's why we asked "Mom"shell, bloggess and Got Beauty Girl alum Lindsay to share a few of her tips from her first few years in the whirlwind on how she radiates her own natural beauty. We're a little bit totally in awe of her ability to balance both worlds, and with such grace, positivity and kindness.
2015 is upon us, and the general consensus is that it's going to be a fun yet familiar year for beauty trends. Keeping things simple and easy seems to be this year's theme, and hey, we're not complaining - the majority of us tend to always be on-the-go. We're already seeing the emergence of some quick and classic favorites: fresh-faced foundation, a simple stroke of black eyeliner, straight hair, and moody metallic eye makeup. We suggest mastering these basic beauty techniques to cut your morning beauty regimen in half. There are few lovelier or faster styles than a messy bun and bright red lips, and we have a feeling they'll stick around even after 2015.
