Favorite Makeup Products

I have always gotten a lot of questions about the makeup I use, and even though it has changed here and here throughout the years some things stay the same!

I will be showing off and linking all of my everyday products. This post will be my full face of makeup. The only thing I didn’t include was how I apply it. I use a beauty sponge and very simple brushes!

Here are all of the products I use on pretty much a daily basis! I start off with my favorite primer by Tula before I apply my foundation and concealer. This primer is seriously amazing and if you order it off of their website you can use my code 15Chloe for a discount on your first purchase.

I used to only use the Tarte Shape Tape but now I use the E.L.F. Camo concealer. I think it works just as well at a lower price point! I then go in with my Urban Decay foundation which has been one of my all time favorites since I was in high school!

I love all things Charlotte Tilbury and if I could use pretty much all Charlotte I would! A lot of my go to products are by her.

I use mostly high end but I have a couple E.L.F products that do a great job and I really like those ones!

I will link my LIKEtoKNOW.it if you want to shop any of these items!

Life Update

Hi everyone! I don’t tend to get too personal on social media but I love updating the blog and getting to really write important stuff down to look back on.

This last year has been a really crazy one. I started this business and threw myself into full time influencing/blogging. I also started coaching and wrote a couple ebooks! In the past year I’ve grown my following by the thousands and starting helping other women do the same.

I took a job for a very short period of time that I knew was not the one for me at all. That lasted about two months and I am back to full time influencing, which is what I really love. I am also going to be getting my real estate license (which I wish I had with this crazy market).

I lost someone close to me, and have learned a lot because of it. This world has been full of so many challenges and it has been all about taking it day by day.

I have gotten to work with some incredible companies and have been able to make more money as a micro-influencer than I did at that other job.

If you are wanting to be able to do the same thing I do I do one on one coaching and I also sell my ebook!

Book Of The Month

This month I am starting something new! It is called Book of the Month. I will be posting and reviewing a new book every single month. Some will be fiction and some will be non-fiction that way there is something for everyone.

I just recently finished a new book that I really really enjoyed reading! It took me two days to get through and I would definitely recommend for a fast fun read.

It’s called She’s Faking It by Kristin Rockaway. The story follows Bree and her series of unfortunate life events that lead her to being car-less and jobless. She starts up an Instagram page and follows along with a life guru, and tries to turn it all around. Meanwhile she’s falling for the cute pro surfer next door.

I would highly recommend this one. Definitely a 4.5 stars out of 5! It is cute and funny and will definitely hook you in. I passed on the book for my friend to read and also hopefully enjoy as much as I did.

I have a lineup of books that I will be reading and reviewing and who knows I may throw in an extra one sometimes, depending on how many books I read in the month!

Let’s Talk Hair!

Last week I talked all about dry shampoo and this week I wanted to discuss shampoo and hair care. With all the talk going on about how bad most products are for your hair, and the big lawsuit going on with many of the large companies, I wanted to show off some of the products I have tried.

I want to start off with the one I am really enjoying using! That is the Living Proof Perfect Hair Day. I am really liking how my hair feels after I use this one. It seems to keep my hair fresher for longer.

I am also trying the Restore but I don’t think I like that one as much as the other Living Proof. I am going to keep trying it and see if my opinion changes at all. I do like the smell of it! All of the Living Proof Products smell great.

Next I recently purchased a small bottle of the Olaplex. I have really been wanting to try this one! I think it is decent and I definitely want to try the Olaplex 3! They have different sizes and if you are wanting to test it out Sephora has small bottles.

I also wanted to include some more affordable options for anyone on a budget! The Shea Moisture collection is sold at Target and is high quality compared to most of the other shampoos and conditioners that they sell.

The Best Dry Shampoo

Okay guys…this blog post is long overdue but I have had the hardest time finding a dry shampoo I’ve liked! I have tried so so many and I am going to share with you my pros and cons on the popular dry shampoos on the market.

First up we have the Water L>SS dry shampoo. For $6.49 at Target this is my favorite cheap pick. It doesn’t show a bunch of residue which is amazing! It does however make your hair feel a little crunchy sometimes.

Next on the list is SGX NYC. This is a decent one. It smells good but does leave residue. If you are blonde with is a good inexpensive option! Being a brunette though, this is not my favorite. It is $7.99 at Target!

Now on to the higher level dry shampoos, is the Living Proof perfect hair day! This one is not my favorite for the price. It is $21.99 at Target and it is not great for brunettes in my opinion! The residue really sticks to your hairs.

My last pick is the best one! I told @the.blonde.bar that I didn’t like any dry shampoos and she showed me one that she carries which is by Davines. This one smells fantastic as well as doesn’t leave a bunch of residue in your hair! This one is the most expensive option at $29.50 but it is worth it in my opinion.

How To Gain New Instagram Followers Every Single Day

Hi everyone! Because I coach other women and help them to grow their following, and I also wrote an ebook on the topic, I thought I would share some easy tips on how to grow your followers everyday!

My first tip is to post at least 4 days a week when it comes to in feed photos. This may seem like a lot or it may seem manageable! I like to try to post five photos a week but that doesn’t always happen.

Next post reels every week. This is the tip that is much harder to do but I have seen create so much success. Instagram actually recommends that you post at least 3 in feed photos at 4 reels every single week to grow your following. And also be posting to stories everyday!

This one may seem simple but having an easy on the eyes feed is a good way to grow followers. If you feed looks like a mess and has a lot of low quality or poorly edited photos, not may people will want to follow you.

The companies that I work with always say they love my feed, and I get a lot of collaboration requests because of it. When I talk to the girls that I coach I go over their feed with them and show them what is working and what isn’t.

I also like to promote my posts. This is a great tool to grow without having to join any giveaways or anything like that! You will gain likes on your photos and new followers if you are promoting quality photos!

I hope these quick and easy tips helped you. If you are needing more help make sure to check out my ebook or DM my coaching page @thebusybco for private sessions!

The Best Places To Take Photos In Arizona Part 2

I got a ton of requests to showcase places to take photos around Scottsdale and Phoenix. I decided making it into two parts would be the best way.

First up is DC Ranch! This place is great for photo shoots. It isn’t usually very busy and there are a ton of places with great lighting.

Hotels are some of my favorite places for great aesthetic spots. I picked two that I absolutely love!

First up is The Scott. There are tons of spots around this hotel to get amazing photos! The atmosphere is perfect.

Civana in Carefree is gorgeous! It also has stunning scenery around the property.

Cave Creek’s frontier town is an absolute hidden gem. I love going here to take my photos, especially being in some cute cowgirl boots!

The last spot is City North! There are lots of spots that are great for bloggers to come and take photos.

I hope this helped give you some ideas on where to take photos in AZ!

The Best Spots For Photos in Scottsdale And Phoenix Arizona Part 1

Hi everyone! This is a very requested blog post. I get tons of comments and questions about the best spots in my state. I will share the places I shoot at for my Instagram photos.

First up is Old Town Scottsdale Area! This is a great place for photos. Lots of different places to snap a picture no matter what kind of aesthetic you are going for.

I take photos around the mall as well as over in Old Town. I always get amazing results because there are so many spots!

I wanted to mention the two Airbnb’s I love that are close by to that. Being a blogger they have let me go and take photos there, but they are the cutest places to rent out! They are the Granada Grotto and the Pink Cactus.

Also in Scottsdale I am a big fan of Kierland Commons and Scottsdale Quarter. I frequent both of these places.

We have tons of great restaurant options for photos but that is a whole other blog post! One that is great for photos is the Henry. Also Teaspressa for cute pics and a tea or coffee!

We literally have desert all around us. Taking a photo in the desert is super easy and at golden hour or in the morning is always pretty!

And that’s all for part one…stay tuned for part 2!
