Oklahoma Tornado Victims Charity Event

You guys know that I have lived in Oklahoma my whole life. That means that we grow up knowing tornado precautions and what to do when the sirens go off. It also means that when a devastating one comes thru here (*like they have too many times these last two weeks!), we know that we will rebuild and continue to be “Oklahoma Strong”. But we need help and that is where charity and disaster relief services come in.

I know that many of you have wanted to find a way to help, but you are so far away you can’t do anything on the ground here. In fact, I was approached by beauty social site “Pampadour”, (*on which I play a bunch), to find out how they could help. So, we came up with a way that would help people around here, and still have a bit of beauty fun, too. On Tuesday, June 4th, from 8pm to 10pm EST they will donate $3 for every user that signs in or registers to Pampadour.com and connects with me! All of the donations will go directly to the Oklahoma Chapter of the Red Cross, to ensure that the money is used for all of the victims around the OKC metro – of which there are so very many.

So, if you are free on Tuesday night, I encourage you to come connect with me on Pampadour and help the victims of the OK tornados. We’ll also be tweeting about it over on twitter with the hashtag #Pamp4OK, too.

I know many of you have been curious, so, here is a pic of where I was, and work, when the tornado hit Moore, Oklahoma on May 20th, 2013:

Also, this is what we saw before we went into the shelter before the tornado hit:

Thank you for all of your support these last couple of weeks!

Makeup Wars Favorite Sunscreens Makeup Wars: Favorite Sunscreen

With Memorial Day just past, we are now officially in the Summer season. So, in this edition of “Makeup Wars”, we are discussing our favorite sunscreens. Now, we all know that I tend to make sure that most of the products I use contain SPF, because this pale, freckled skin isn’t going to keep itself looking like this on its own, that’s for sure. Because of that, I didn’t really include any of those products, like moisturizers, but just the products that I tend to use for its sunscreen properties on their own.

Coola Sport SPF 35 Citrus Mimosa Sunscreen Spray: Scent is a HUGE part of sunscreen to me. I swear, it goes back to growing up and smelling the Coppertone Coconut Oil wafting by the pools growing up, all SPF 4 of it! And not only does this smell like yummy citrus, it is actually good for you. It “will also nourish, repair and hydrate skin with 97% certified organic ingredients like Cucumber, Algae and Strawberry Extracts; and Red Raspberry Seed Oil, a natural sunscreen and anti-inflammatory rich in Omega-3 and 6″. Ridiculous, right? And it sprays really well, too.

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 100+: Is SPF 100+ overkill? Yes. Do we know that anything over SPF 35 is not any more effective? Yes. Does seeing the SPF so high help me mentally think that I am doing an amazing thing? Yes. And that is why I use this one. Plus, the ultra-sheer factor really does help this absorb super quick so it doesn’t feel like it is just sitting on my face. I will wear this on the days that I won’t be wearing any makeup and will be out in the sun. Roasting.

Mario Badescu Lip Wax SPF 15: I know I have told you about my love for this lip balm before. It’s my holy grail lip saver, and the SPF makes it a necessity in the summer months when I venture outside.

Dr. Denese SPF 20 Defense Day Lip Veil: Sometimes, I need to have a bit of a shine on my lips, but still protect them. That is when I will whip out my Dr. D Lip Veil – this is a high shine gloss (*that tastes good), and still protects with a SPF 20. I’m pretty sure that this is discontinued on the Dr. D site, but you can still find it around. It doesn’t take much for glossy coverage.

So, what do you use for sunscreen? Are you a spray or lotion user? Let me know below and then check out the sunscreen favorites from the other ladies:
