Change is coming. . .

Change is coming. . .

Hello everyone! I want to say my typical “sorry I’ve been gone but. . . ” but I have no excuse. Truth is back in late January I had a miscarriage. I tried using my blog and shopping to ease my pain and get my mind off of things but truth is I hadn’t. Emotionally I hadn’t recovered and I wasn’t in an ok place.

I’ve slowly started to accept it and realize that I still have a wonderful husband and two children that need me.

So with that being said I’d like to announce that my blog will be changing a bit. I will be doing more lifestyle posts. I will never give up on makeup or lose my love for it. But I just don’t have the money to keep up. I believe in writing about what I love and I won’t settle for just any makeup just to produce content.

I will still do makeup related posts. I just want to include more on what my life is like aside from makeup. I just realized most days I don’t wear makeup. My husband’s job has been crazy busy and that leaves me with a 5-year-old and 1-year-old all day. Truth is I have no time to beat my face.

Instead follow me on my journey that revolves around food, family, and long days at the beach!

I’d also like to let you guys know we have a YouTube channel where we vlog. It hasn’t kicked off yet and I’m still adjusting to recording our every day and editing. Also, figuring out what camera works best! But if you’d like to check it out at The Egan’s Vlog

Hopefully this change doesn’t mean we’re parting ways instead it’ll bring us closer. I personally love beauty blogs/channels and lifestyle types. I will try to stay with my Monday Wednesday Friday schedule. But if need be I will change them.

If there’s anything specific you guys want to see or want me to post about just let me know!

I am so excited for this change!

Do any of you have a Youtube channel? Link it pleaese so I can check it out!

Love My Youtubers

Love My Youtubers

One of my favorite things to do while I’m feeding my son is watch youtube. Its relaxing, entertaining, and inspirational. I learn a lot from many of the youtubers I watch and I also like challenging myself by recreating looks I like.

Today I’d like to tell you guys about my updated favorites. As time goes by we grow and so does our interests and that goes for who I like to watch too. Something that is important to me when I’m obsessing over a new youtuber is that I don’t want products shoved down my throat. While I can respect their hustle sometimes it’s not genuine. They have discount codes and hype up a product that is not worth it. As a family with one incoming and a sick makeup obsession I don’t want our hard-earned money going towards products that . . . suck!

Another thing is I want to be able to interact with the person I’m watching and its usually someone with a smaller audience. Most of the people I will mention I’ve talked to one on one or have asked about products they use and gotten a sincere answer.

I’ve done a post like this before you can read it Here. As you will see my interest have somewhat changed.

fullsizeoutput_eBailey Sarian. Im not exactly sure how I came across her channel but I am so glad I did! She’s funny, mega talented, and so down to earth. She’s a makeup artist and has great tips. A lot of girls on youtube are self-taught and won’t do makeup on others and that’s what makes Bailey so amazing. Her content and input isn’t about what works just for/on her but what would work on her clients or what they like. I’ve fortunately have spoken to Bailey one on one and she’s so genuinely kind and helpful. Bailey has actually  recently signed up with Ipsy so if you have a subscription you will be blessed with her face soon! 😝

fullsizeoutput_5 Someone that makes the list again is Jasminesong. She’s another makeup artist I randomly found but I know for sure I found her on Instagram. A friend of mine tagged me in her posts because of her piercing and from that follow a friendship was formed. You know how you watch these people and you think to yourself “I’d seriously get along with her!” Well that happened to me with Jasmine. She has amazing talent, has a big heart, and is so easy to watch.

fullsizeoutput_1Beautyybird actually has a lot of followers and does the whole discount code in your face thing but her personality makes up for all of that. She’s so bubbly and happy all the time I can watch her for hoursssss. She’s that type of person that starts putting makeup on and you’re hypnotized. It’s so seamless and easy to follow along. I often challenge myself in recreating some of her looks.

fullsizeoutput_bNow this is Yasmin’s vlog she has with her husband. I love vlogs but don’t follow any vlog channels besides theirs. I will watch their channel every single night. . . I AM HOOKED! Her personality bursts through the screen and her relationship with her husband is so inspirational. She is also very family oriented which I can appreciate.

fullsizeoutput_13Lastly there is Tymetheinfamous. Can she have a million subscribers already?!? She has pure raw talent. She does makeup like I’ve never seen before. Its bold, its out there, its in your face, and its mesmerizing. She also has one of the best personalities ever. Its dry but not boring, her voice is so soothing, and she’s soooo honest. Like, issues around the world in with our government honest!

Now don’t get me wrong I still have my og’s I am obsessed with like Nicole and Kathleen but it’s time to give some of the less known faces some love. Talent like theirs deserves some recognition. And I forgot about Carli Byble. She’s also a fave of mine because of her vegan ways and her kind soul.

Who are some of your old, new, or OG youtubers??

Life Update!

Life Update!

Hello everyone! After almost a year of being absent I am back with some life updates. If anyone noticed I was gone for a while I promise I have a good excuse! Back in April we found out I was pregnant. I had noticed a change in my mood and how tired I was. I had 0 motivation to blog or even do my makeup. So, I decided to put blogging aside while we got ready for the baby. Another thing is I wasn’t buying makeup (besides my basics/favorites) since we were focusing on just the baby and our 4yr old. I didn’t stop wearing makeup I just stopped talking about it. Here are a few of my favorite pics of my pregnancy! I didn’t do a maternity shoot which I kind of regret now but my bathroom mirror saw many selfies!

Another big thing that happened that took up a lot of our/my time was back in November our dog Marie had puppies. For some reason she rejected them and I stepped in with bottle feeding and all that good stuff.  2 of the pups didn’t make it and with the hormones and time invested in them I didnt have energy at all to do makeup. I spent a lot of that time just focused on the pups and my daughter.

But after finding most of them loving homes and giving birth to a beautiful baby boy I AM BACK!! My son was born in January and since then I’ve made some makeup damage so I can’t wait to show you guys and talk once again about the one thing we all have in common. . . our love for makeup! I’ve also played with the idea of not focusing so much on just makeup and possibly changing my style to more of a lifestyle blog with makeup posts also, thoughts??

I am so glad to be back, glad to have a healthy baby boy and daughter, and glad to be doing what I love once again!

Small Milestones. . . One step at a time!

Small Milestones. . . One step at a time!

I told myself I wasn’t going to do one of these because in reality it’s no big deal BUT to me it is! BeautyDreaming has had 200+ views and I am beyond stoked!

 
 As a person who has always loved makeup and beauty products I’ve gravitated towards it more and more as time goes by. With it has come a certain “hate” that gets under my skin. I started noticing that the more I posted on my social media about looks or products I purchased the more memes talking about “natural beauty”, “your face isn’t a coloring book”, and my favorite (not!!) “I have trust issues because women wear makeup” started popping up on my feed! I’m not saying they were directed at me personally but I did feel offended by it. This is something I genuinely love! To me makeup is art, it’s expression, and believe it or not for some people it’s a boost of confidence. 

So, I needed an outlet. Very few of my friends if not, only a handful, share this passion and talking to just them about makeup 24/7 can become repetitive. So I seeked a way to communicate with other makeup lovers and share our thoughts and love for makeup in a judge free zone. This is what I am trying to achieve with my blog. A little piece of space dedicated to talking makeup, makeup tips, brands, anything and everything! 

I also noticed people wanted advice but never really asked. Since posting my weekly blogs I’ve noticed people actually asks questions and I all want and hope is to help someone out there. Maybe like me you’re just a stay at home mom and can’t spend pretty pennies on everything that is constantly releasing and that’s what I’m here for. To tell you the truth of “is it worth it!” Or maybe you’re not as obsessive as me so you don’t really know what product really works. Unlike someone at a makeup store I don’t make money off of my opinion (lucky those of you that do! Lol) so I am giving you a 100% raw review. 

So thank you to everyone who reads my ramblings, who shares this love with me, and who is kind enough to share their opinion with me when I don’t know! 

Thank you to my husband for believing in me and providing the tools to bring these posts to life. Thanks to my best friend for all her advice, knowledge, and support. Thanks to my mother in law for taking the time to read all my posts. 

May we all keep blogging in peace, blend our eyeshadows until our hands fall off, and may we all be f.  .  . Fabulous!! 💋

🍾🍾🍾 cheers to many more posts. Many more views. And much much much more makeup!!🍾🍾🍾

Thanks for reading. I am eternally grateful 👽
