Makeup Must Haves for NYE 2015

I haven't done one of these in a while, and man, how I've missed it! I love sharing cute collages of my favorite things. This one is all about New Year's Eve party makeup! Now, I'm not one to say there are "rules" when it comes to makeup, but I'm pretty sure glitter (or at least shimmer) on NYE is mandatory. So I have picked out some of the brightest, shimmery-est, and most long-lasting products that I have used. I'm completely obsessed with all of these beauty gems. They're perfect for keeping the party going all night long! 

What are some of your favorite holiday makeup products?

Brooks Wilder: Ten Months

Holy cow, my tiny baby boy is ten months now! Actually, since I'm a couple weeks late on this update, he's ten and a half months! Oh my. Where did the time go? When people ask how old he is, I really have to think about it for a second because I want to say four or five months until I realize... oh wait.... yeah, he's double that. *sniff*

I do love the age Brooks is now, though. He's becoming so much more interactive and playful. A couple weeks ago, he took his first wobbly steps. Now, he can take several steps, fall down, then get back up and take a few more! 

This little dude is so curious about the world around him... which means we really need to finish child-proofing our house. He loves exploring and getting into EVERYTHING. Some of his favorite things to do right now are opening drawers and cabinets, pulling stuff out, and putting anything and everything in his mouth! No matter what it is, if it's on the floor... it's going to end up in his mouth. I can't even tell you how many tiny objects I've fished out of his little chipmunk cheeks!

December Style

I've been sick for the past week. Actually, all three of us in the house have been passing germs around. Brooks and I are finally starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel, but poor Cody is still trying to find his way out. 

Since I'm feeling better now, and the weather is so nice, I decided to get out for a little bit. Speaking of the weather, how is it December and I'm still able to wear a dress without forty layers under and over it?! Crazy. I'm definitely not complaining though!

Overtone Overview

Changing my hair color and keeping up with the maintenance is no big deal for me since I'm a hairstylist. Other than time, it really doesn't take much for me to keep my hair bold and beautiful. However, having that time these days is very hard to come by. Between work at the salon, work at home, and general baby sustainment, when do I have any time to refresh my color?? The answer is.... every time I shower! That's all thanks to my Overtone extreme blue daily conditioner! Holy cow, this stuff is a life saver.

Price - $18

Smell- It's packed full of organic plant oils so it smells kind of minty or tea tree-ish. Soooo good!

How to Use - Replace this with your regular daily conditioner. Leave on for 5 minutes, then rinse. Use as often as you want to keep your color from fading OR to add color to your natural or pre-lightened hair!

Likes - It's EXTREMELY pigmented (hence the name "Extreme Blue"), keeps my color vibrant between root touch ups, and smells fantastic.

Dislikes -  It stains my hands a little bit, but goes away after a couple hand washes. 

If you have unicorn hair, you NEED this conditioner in your color maintenance regimen! It will save you time and money between salon visits. Overtone also comes in just about every color and the pigment intensity ranges from pastel to extreme.
