Cameran Eubanks from Southern Charm’s Beauty Secrets

I’ve been a huge fan of Southern Charm since the very first season and Cameran consistently has absolutely amazing hair and makeup that are natural and effortless, yet incredible all at the same time. Since a lot of people have questions about her age- Cameran Eubanks aka Cameran Wimberly’s birthday is 11/21/83 making her currently 33 years old. One of Cameran’s biggest beauty secrets and the reason why she always looks so flawless- she used to be a makeup artist! (Source)

Best Concealer to Cover Undereye Circles

If you have dark circles and discoloration around your eyes, you’re going to want to read this.  Here’s my secret to using concealer to cover up dark under eyes:

  1. Depuff: I used my Tarte Pack Your Bags 911 Undereye Rescue Patches ($22 for 4 pairs) that had been in the refrigerator to help reduce any puffiness. You can also go old school and use cold spoons! One of my new faves Mallory Ervin recommended these Tarte patches. You may also remember that Lady Sonja Morgan from Real Housewives of New York dips her whole face in an ice bath to help with puffiness!

Sonja Morgan’s Makeup Secrets

Sonja Morgan of Real Housewives of New York City has really nailed the “I’m not wearing that much makeup yet I look incredibly polished and chic at the same time” look. She never looks cakey or overdone, yet always looks flawless! If you saw my Sonja Morgan’s Beauty Secrets – Skincare, Botox, Facials, and More post you know that Sonja takes amazing care of her skin and eats very healthy, but what is she putting on her face and body that is making her look so flawless? I still can’t believe Queen Sonja Morgan herself reposted my last blog on her Facebook, I mean is this real life!?!?

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas 2017

Mother’s Day is this Sunday May 14th, 2017!! If you need a last minute Mother’s day gift ideas for a mom (or Grandma, or Mother-in-law, or step-mom or baby mama) in your life, I’ve got you covered! Being from Florida I know tons of moms who like to have fun in the sun whether they’re by the pool, at the beach, or on the boat which inspired these gift ideas! These Mother’s Day gifts are great on their own or would be even better as a themed gift in a nice big basket or bag to really wow her.

Most of these gifts are available at Nordstrom which always has free shipping over $50 and also has this amazing feature where you can order online and pick it up at your nearest store! If you’re in LA and want to pick it up at the Grove you just pull into the valet and they bring it to your car! I tried it recently and felt like I was doing an errand for a rich person haha, but I loved it so convenient!

Megaphone by Sunnylife ($24) When I saw this I immediately thought of my friend Annabelle’s mom Fancy Nancy DeSisto (be sure to listen to them on the Adderall and Compliments Podcast). She’s a super activist and would love to have this thing at a march or rally I’m sure! Plus what mom wouldn’t like this to just yell at their kids in the pool? It runs on 4 C batteries.

Amazon’s Echo Look is about to Take OOTDs to the Next Level

Amazon’s latest product is the Echo Look which has all of the voice activated features of the Amazon Echo, but now is equipped with a special camera to capture outfits. The camera is hands-free, has built-in LED lighting, has a depth-sensing capabilities, and is able to blur the background automatically. It can also take videos and it looks like it makes little Boomerang videos as well. Now you can ask Alexa what the weather will be and then have her take a selfie in whichever outfit she has decided looks best on you.
