About the Blog:

Peace Love and Glitter is a beauty blog, where I encourage you to discover beauty, and always sparkle.

I believe that a beauty blog should be more than “here is me in my favorite lipstick!”  A true beauty blog will dig deeper and try to answer any question that the reader may have about the product.  Anyone can put anything they want out on the internet, whether if it’s true or not.  I work in the cosmetic field and have had specialized training in both makeup and skin care.  It is my promise to you that I will use my education to make this the best beauty blog that I can! :)

I try to always keep things professional, but I have a very dark dry sense of humor, and I can’t promise that it doesn’t shine through in some of my posts.  You can either laugh with me, at me, or just don’t laugh at all.  I will leave that up to you.

I’m obsessed with beauty products.  Like, I have a for reals problem.

When someone feels empowered and beautiful, they can achieve so many things that they felt they could not before.

Where it All Started:

Make up.  I’ve always loved playing with make up, I started wearing it when I was entirely too young.  But even then, I knew the power of putting products on your face.  Whether it’s to enhance, camouflage, or simply want to wear a pretty color on your face (like wearing a pretty color of clothing), it’s always been fun for me.  It wasn’t until I got older when I realized the importance of skin care.  It doesn’t matter who you are, everyone wants to feel good about themselves.  It all starts with your face, it’s your window into the world.

And I don’t want to look old, duh.

It is my life’s passion, and I live and dedicate my career to one principal:  Everyone has the right to feel pretty.  And Harry Potter is real.

    • Well thank you very much, Misty! There are a few solutions to getting those long lashes…
      1) An eyelash curler, a good mascara, and a metal lash comb. Curl your lashes. Then apply three coats of mascara (let each one set for 1-2 minutes before applying the next coat). Use lash comb in between coats. Time consuming, yes. Cheapest route? Yes.
      2) False lashes! There are the individual clusters (a little tricky to apply but very natural looking) and the ones with the strip. My favorite falsies are the Ardell 105 (dramatic) and the 305 (daytime). I recommend Duo lash glue.
      3) Latisse. Schedule an appointment with and optometrist or ophthalmologist to get a prescription. I use Latisse, and it does work. Downside: It takes at least 3 months to see the results, and it’s pricey ($100-$120 for 3mL). You also have to keep using the product to keep your long lashes. If you quit using it for a period of time, your lashes will start to thin out :/
      4) Eyelash extensions. Another pricey option, it typically costs around $150 (and up to) get them applied. Maintenance is much like when you have acrylic nails, you need to get them filled every 2-3 weeks. Each fill costs around $50.

      Whew! Hope that helps! Thanks for reading!
