Back in March, I had another luggage scare because of American Airlines. I was tired from yet another work week on the road. To my fear and horror, once I sanitized my seat on the plane, one bag was logged but not the other. I look at my luggage like my kids so one of my children was not accounted for.
I am a lover of beauty and looking marvelous no matter where I am. The plane ride home was the longest 1 hr and 54 mins of my life. I was so thankful to see both bags appear on the baggage claim. After recovering I thought long and hard about this risk. Each time I check a bag it could be the last time I see them. Now, this may sound hella dramatic over beauty products, but for me, it was a great wake up call. I don’t want to sacrifice my best makeup for a job I’m not in love with.
To help recovery from such trauma I took it to the streets and found myself at Ulta. I wanted to find products that are compact and delivery results but more cost-effective. The struggle for the girl who enjoys looking her best is making sure product quality is on par. The days of drugstore products being below the standard have changed substantially. I love Ulta as it gives me the best of both worlds, the prestige lines, and the drug store. I made a game plan of items I knew I needed in order to not skip a beat while out traveling. A neutral eye is always going to be your best bet especially for professional trips, your base must make you look well rested and the tools of the trade don’t have to break the bank but must deliver.

I have been able to create my classic look with ease. The variety of finishes in the palette allow me to create that neutral look but then the shimmer shades allow me to add a bit of sparkle when I’m taking my look from day to night. Read more
