BEAUTY

NYX Color Correcting Powder (Banana)
I came across this beauty on the clearance stand at Ulta. Why it was there who knows. I’m not complaining.  I use this power to highlight under the eye area to minimize discoloration. I will also dust it across the cheeks if I applied too much blush.

NYX Born To Glow Liquid Illuminator (Gleam)
Yeah Baby! This golden tube just makes a girl want to smile. This highlighter makes me look kissed by the sun. A little dab will do ya. But, before you apply this product make sure the sun is out. There’s nothing worse than wearing it on a cloudy day. It just looks unnatural.

NYX Proof It! Waterproof Eye Shadow Primer
If your eye shadow has a hard time staying put, then this eye shadow primer will do the trick. Apply a very small amount to your eyelids. Allow one minute to dry, then apply eye shadow.

Summit’s Liv Creme Hairdressing & Conditioner
People are always asking me what I use on my hair. Girrrl listen when I tell you this is my favorite hair moisturizer of all time. I don’t use hair care products except for a moisturizer because I like to keep my hair bouncing. Now, a little goes a long way so only use nickel size amount. This jar lasts me more than a year.

Renpure Original Argan Oil Shampoo & Conditioner
Someone I met used this on his daughter’s hair. It works wonders on my naturally curly hair and it makes it easy to comb through.

SENSODYNE
OK don’t judge me for adding toothpaste to the list. This white tube has been a lifesaver when it comes to my oral care. I have very sensitive teeth, and within a couple of days the sensitivity went away. Have stopped using it since.

The Beauty Diary
A makeup book for the everyday woman. A timeless collection of proven beauty tips, this book shows you step-by-step how to select the right colors and consistently convert makeup advice into looks you can wear. Our course I had to include my book. I’d be crazy not to.

Well-Kept Beauty
Created by a good business associate of mine, this beauty app offers a better way to manage your skin care routine. It keeps tabs on all your products and tracks when they expire based on industry suggested use by dates acknowledged by the FDA. You can keep personal notes on each product and record your allergies and the ingredients you need to avoid.

BUSINESS

Lisa is my go to copyeditor. She worked on my book and website. If you see a typo, chances are it didn’t cross her desk, which I’m guilty of for this page. Just let her know Bailey sent you. Yes, really!

Speech to text transcription. This is perfect if you have to transcribe minutes for a meeting or notes for class.
