                  Hello dears! Today I would like to introduce you to my friend and super talented makeup-
               artist,  Ashley Sievert of Ashley Sievert Beauty During this post you can see my 
               transformation from start to finish as well as a 5 Question Interview with Ashley! 
              ( Tip : I kept my eyes closed the entire time which made the process even more exciting!) 

       I was so excited when she reached out to me and after seeing Jen's post and how beautifully her 

     makeup looked, I was sold. Although I wasn't exactly thrilled about posting the 'before' pictures on 
    the blog wearing NO makeup (not gonna lie), it was sooo worth it! 

         My makeup routine before getting my makeup done has changed quite bit, starting with how I apply
    my foundation. I had always applied it before my eye makeup and mascara. Ashley explained to me that 
    by applying your eye-makeup first, you can clean up your mistakes without wiping away your base and 
    having to worry about your mascara flaking off and smearing (story of my life) This simple trick has made 
    a HUGE difference in how my makeup comes out and I highly recommend trying it yourself! Trust me.

                '' As a makeup artist, that is hard to choose but I would say, foundation, concealer and mascara.''

         “With over 8 years of experience in the beauty industry you learn about so many products. I was always searching for a foundation with amazing coverage, light weight and did not cause me to break out. I was never able to come across exactly what I was looking for which is why I now have Ashley Sievert Beauty.” via     

Ashley's foundation is absolutely amazing. She used it on me during the makeup application and it felt like I wasn't wearing any makeup at all! In fact, the day these pictures were taken it was very wet and humid outside. I was worried that my makeup would melt right off later in the day, like it usually does. From the time it was applied (around 10am) until I washed it off (about 8pm) it looked just as flawless and perfect as it did that morning. I couldn't believe it! No oil or blotchiness to be found. It definitely lives up to it's description and gets on A+ rating from me!
