Before I had my son three years ago, I was sure I would be able to remain as busy as ever. My plan was to simply incorporate him into my life, and already existing routine. I would always have time to do my hair and makeup, and I would never trade my heels for flats.
Hi - my name's Sadie, and I'm a certified health nut.
You've all heard the term, and it's likely that all sorts of conclusions of what that means rally to mind. Some might call me a hippie, though I'm a little too particular and attached to regular showering. Others might assume I'm a giant stick in the mud who doesn't imbibe in any pleasures life has to offer - again, not quite. In fact, my habits and peculiarities are not that far off from the rest of the world; I get pedicures and brow waxes regularly, I use fancy hair product, I occasionally overindulge in dopamine, go to the doctor, get dressed up when going on a date with my man...not so different from most.
Some call it spring fever, others call it hay fever - either way, 'tis the season of change and starting fresh, which means calling it quits on the old that no longer serves you. This stands true in many areas: old belief systems, old styles in your closet, even old makeup that reeeeally shouldn't have lasted this long. If you're struggling this spring and could use a little guidance on how to gently let go of all you deem as junk, we've got a list of for sures and certainties that will have you breathing easier. Unless, you know, your breathing struggles comes from allergies - in which case, you and your immune system are on your own.
Sometimes less is more. Coming from us here at Got Beauty, that may be hard to believe, but when it comes to skincare, it's true. If you are over exfoliating or cocktailing products that shouldn't be stacked on top of each other, you could be doing more harm than help for your precious pores! We break down the mistakes you might be making with your skincare routine, and suggest ways to fix them with products we think you'll love. Read on to learn how to keep your skin pore perfect in these winter months.
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!
The season of lights and festivities tends to bring out the glamorous side of most of us - and why shouldn't it? Ain't no shame in finding a reason to celebrate your best self. Often times, we're feeling like we want to try something new to spruce up an event, yet lack the inspiration to know what that something is. For your taste-testing pleasure, we've rounded up three makeup looks to try for your next holiday party.
Still stumped on your Halloween costume? Not trying to spend $100 for an outfit or makeup you'll only wear once? the Got Beauty Girls have you covered. We tried these three super easy, 5 minute (ish) makeup looks using only makeup in our store and we are OBSESSED with how they turned out!
Makeup hoarding is something I'm sure many of us, including myself, are guilty of. We buy that new bright purple lip with EVERY intention of rocking it on the daily, but in reality it ends up sitting at the bottom of our bag for years searching for it's day of reckoning when it can bless your lips with violet fierceness. So how long do you hold onto those makeup products that keep piling up in the bottom of your bag? Some of them can last for years, others could cause infections after just a couple months (gross)!
Maybe it's just us, but even so much as the suggestion of makeup brush cleaning used to send a tingle of fear and loathing down our spines. In an age which boundless responsibility is met with a staggering time deficit, menial tasks are often begrudged and, consequently, avoided. But with all we're learning about the perils of waltzing with woebegone wands, we decided it was time to translate the loathsome aspects of makeup brush cleaning—especially frequency—to a more digestible dialogue.
