Face of the Day: A Pop of Blue

One of my favorite things about my job is playing with new makeup and getting to call it “work” as long as I share it with all of you. I am in love with this eye look featuring a pop of blue liner along the waterline. The combination of peachy shades with the blue really make my eyes stand out.

Nailed It Spring Mani

The weather is absolutely gorgeous right now. I love spring in the desert! My family and I are taking advantage of every moment we can to enjoy being outside before the 100+ temps start. I always get a little extra spring in my step this time of year and thankful I was able to get a few minutes for some me time. Whenever that happens one of the first things I do is pamper myself with the perfect manicure.

Spring nail trends are giving new life to my social media feeds and I can’t wait to usher in a few them on my own nails. It’s time to put down my go-to nudes and embrace the beautiful pastels, metallics and sparkles that brightened up the Spring 2016 runways.


I brightened up my nail look this week with the new limited edition Nailed It Precious Petals Mini Nail Lacquers from mark. This nail polish duo features the shades green thumb and steel magnolia. Both provide just the right around of shimmer.


In addition to the Nailed It duo, the limited edition Precious Petals Beauty Collection from mark. includes beautiful lip gloss shades and longwear eyeshadows to create the perfect Pretty in Pink (and mint & orchid) spring makeup looks.


I can’t wait to get my hands on the complete collection so I can recreate mark. Brand Ambassador Lucy Hale’s fresh spring look from the most recent mark. magalog.

Love a Good Mystery

Skin Care Timeout

My littlest one just turned one and it seems that slowly, but surely, I am catching glimpses of being able to get back to some beauty routines that I have very much missed since the arrival of baby number three. Although I have always been able to maintain my daily skin care regimen, I haven’t had much time for the extras … until today. Thank you Skin Care Sunday! I finally was able to take advantage of a few extra minutes in the peace and quiet of my bathroom to indulge in a little pampering. This mommy was in desperate need of a skin care timeout.

Today’s Skin Care Sunday post is brought to you by Avon’s Clearskin Pore Penetrating Black Mineral MaskIMG_7943

This mask continues to be by far one of my favorite ways to treat my skin well. The mineral mask is comprised of oil-absorbing mineral clays that act like a magnet to help remove pore-clogging oils. Suitable for all skin types, this masks goes on black and transforms to a light grey color while providing a tingly/cooling sensation.


Once the mask is completely dry (usually takes 10-15 minutes), simply rinse and pat dry. My skin is left soft, smooth and refreshed. Package instructions recommend using this pore penetrating mask 2-3 times a week … but let’s be honest, right now I’m lucky that I got to indulge in this at least once this month.

I’m not the only one that loves this mask. It receives a 4.7 star rating based on 73 reviews in my Avon eStore. Get your hands on this product or read more about it and the other top-rated skin care options Avon offers by visiting www.azmakeupmaven.com.
