Mother’s Day Favorites

SHOP OUR FAVORITES:


Happy Thursday, loves! Mother’s Day is one of my favorite holidays to shop for to celebrate my Nana and Mom as well as other ladies that have played an important role in our lives! I put together a “Friday Favorites” highlighting some adorable items that’ll be sure to make her smile and I tried to keep all items under $65 so it won’t hurt the budget! Happy Shopping!

Hi, gorgeous! Just checking in for a little break from packing for my upcoming trip to NEW YORK CITY with the Sunkissed & Made Up girls! It’s my first trip to the Big Apple and I am bursting with excitement that I finally get to go! Being true a true Breakfast At Tiffany’s, Sex and The City, and Gossip Girl fan, going to New York has been a life-long dream of mine and I plan on listening to Moon River on our plane ride there, getting a snapshot of me holding a donut and a cup of coffee in front of Tiffany & Co., and purchasing a Carrie Bradshaw approved keepsake! We will be there for five days {Sunday through Thursday} and we will be doing a few photoshoots showcasing our hair & make up brand, plenty of shopping, and visiting iconic New York sights! Like Carrie’s apartment! 🙂 We also have reservations to the Polo Club and I CAN NOT believe it. You basically have to be SJP, a Kardashian,  or Kelly Ripa to get in and somehow Candice managed to use her Texas southern charm on the hostess! With all that being said, make sure you check in to our Instagram {@doubleshotofsass} and our Snapchat {handknouis} as I document our trip! AND don’t forget to follow {@sunkissedandmadeup} for all of our prettiness we will be creating while we are in NYC!
Lukas and I recently bought bikes to ride around Midtown and I am absolutely loving it! We are both really active and this has been so fun for us to do together on the weekends other than our usual Sunday Funday bottomless mimosas and bar hopping! When I was shopping for a new cruiser, my only request was it to be aesthetically pleasing to the eye! I know it’s terrible, I don’t really make decisions based on functionality! I love the sleekness of the black paint job and the brown leather detailing! So pretty! 
Sadly, my new favorite flats are already sold out! Tears! They are so comfortable and I got so many compliments on them! So, I linked a few pair that I thought were comparable!
Thanks so much for checking in and I can’t wait to share with y’all my NYC adventures next week!
XOXO, Gossip Girl
Just kidding! I had to do it!

Happy Monday, gorgeous! I’ve been trapped inside all day due to severe flooding in the Houston area! Please say a prayer for our beloved city, it’s so heartbreaking to see so many people with damage to their homes, vehicles, or to themselves. Lukas and I have been cooped up watching movies and eating candy and quite honestly I am not complaining! It actually feels nice to be forced not to do anything or not have any plans when we are constantly on the go. 
Hailey and I constantly get emails, DMs, and comments on what make up products that we use so I thought one HUGE post (it’s super detailed and super long, don’t hate me LOVE Y’ALL) on what’s in my make-up bag! Being a make-up artist, I am constantly experimenting with new brands and products that I want to use on my clients and 9 times out of 10 they end up in my bathroom! 
I’m super particular about complexion products! It can sometimes be challenging to find the right foundation– it’s either too oily, too chalky, too dark, or too light. ANNOYING! But what I seriously love about Sephora is that they will take back anything. Seriously, you could use a foundation for a week and if it’s not working for you, you can take it back! I love use this for my foundation and this for my powder, the two together are life changing for my combination skin. This is my all time favorite concealer for it’s super smooth consistency and is extremely long-lasting. It’s perfect for my circles under my eyes and blemishes that need to be unseen! 
I use this everyday for contouring and highlighting, I use all of the colors except the taupe one in the middle. That color looks TERRIBLE on me. My all time favorite bronzer is this and I use it on all of my clients! It’s the perfect combination between shimmer and matte and it literally looks good on everyone! And of course, this is the best highlight I have ever laid hands on. Becca x Jaclyn Hill is a genius! My two favorite blushes are this and this. I also love this under my foundation! I love Deep Throat (their names are so seductive, it makes me ucomfortable when people ask me what it’s called, lol) for when I want a lighter, dewy look and Breath of Plum when I want to be little more vampy.
Eye products are so fun to me! I love playing with different colors on myself and clients! When I do a pretty smokey eye on my client I’m always like “YAS GIRL I’M WEARING THIS TONIGHT!” I love the Morphe Pro Palette 35N, all of the colors are on point and they are really easy to blend together. This particular palette is all matte and when I want to add a little pop I put Champagne Pop or The Balm Overshadow Sex Pot in “You Buy, I’ll Fly” in the corners of my eyes or swipe down the middle of my lid, depending on what look I’m going for! And the BEST mascara is this!
For my brows I only use Anastasia Beverly Hills products in Taupe! The shade works really well with my skin tone and hair! I use this to define my arch and this to fill in! Then I finish them with a clear gel to hold my brow hairs in place, I linked my favorite one up top! 
Lip products are my FAVORITE! If there’s one thing that I will spend my money on, it’s lip products!  I linked my favorite ones for y’all and I know what you’re guessing, how did I get a Kylie Lip Kit. My amazing boss at Sunkissed sat by the computer and snagged all of the artists one! So sweet! It’s one of my favorite matte liquid lipsticks that I’ve used and the color (KoKo K) is everything!
I work really hard at keeping my skin smooth, clear, and healthy so face and body moisturizers and creams are really important to my regime! This feels like melted marshmallows and cream– absolute heaven! My favorite face tanning product is this, gives me just enough color to where I don’t look like a cheeto…what Lukas likes to call me when I get a spray tan!  
And there ya go! Start experimenting with different products and find your favorites!

Hello, loves! Happy new week and congrats on getting through Monday! Have some champagne with your cereal this morning because you’ve earned it! Hailey and I conquered a weekend for the books, I had the biggest wedding party to date by myself and she did such an amazing job assisting me. 9 hair up-dos. 9 make-up applications. 18 jobs total. All under 8 hours. Excuse me, what? I still don’t know how we did it but we SLAYED. Go us! 
As you may know, Hailey got engaged to Mr. Jacob Daniels last Friday and wedding plans are well underway! Today we are going wedding dress shopping at BHLDN, engagement pictures on Saturday, and floral consultation on Monday. I’m pretty sure I will be having a glass of wine every night for the next 8 weeks (the date has been set for June 12th) because being maid of honor is serious business, but I wouldn’t want any other title to stand by my sweet, pain in the tush sister on her special day. LOVE YOU! 🙂 
Naturally Hailey has several upcoming bridal events coming up and we just can’t decide what she should wear! So here are our choices for all you brides to be and perhaps tell us your favorite picks!

We hope the rest of your week is filled with glitter and unicorns! We will keep y’all updated on the wedding festivities! Till next time…
