Hi Everyone, thanks so much for the thoughts and prayers. It really means so much to me. I love you all so much! The surgery went well, and I’m just waiting till Monday or Tuesday to find out the results. I’ll make sure and keep you posted:)

Last month while out we found the most amazing ice cream shop. You probably saw it on my Instagram. Then we just walked and talked and had fun in the cab. I showed this lipstick on snapchat the day I wore it but it is the perfect pink color! The color is called ‘Maroon Dust‘ and is part of the most amazing collaboration between make-up artist Pat McGrath and Max Factor. It looks more pink depending which lighting you are in but it is a good color to always have in your purse because it can go with most anything and isn’t too bright! I have a few colors like that, where I always keep them in my purse. There is also this pretty nude color that I have worn a couple times and it is called, ‘Simply Nude’. They just released in the US again for a limited time and you can find them at Amazon. They’re so pretty layered together to make an even softer pink. If you know me you know I love to layer up lipsticks and create whatever color I am looking for! It is so fun to me to mix pinks and purples or nudes and salmons and see what color I end up with.

If I am ever wearing eyeliner, it is hands down always a cat eye. I think a cat eye is so much more flattering on my face since the corners of my eyes point downwards. It kind of gives a little lift illusion to my face and I love it. I wore a subtle cat eye that day for our ice cream date , but I also love a dramatic cat eye too! Like really dramatic, Brigitte Bardot style, especially when I am traveling and want a more glamorous look. It’s so easy too.

I used Max Factor High Precision Liquid Eyeliner and the tip of the liner is flat so it’s so easy to draw on your lid. First, you do the middle of your eye, then the inner corner, and then I bring the middle straight out as far as I want the wing to go, and then connect it with a diagonal line. Hope you all had a good day and had lots of ice cream this weekend 🙂

And I have a special treat for all of you! You can get the limited-edition collection at Walgreens, CVS and Target or online at with this $3 off coupon to make it even sweeter.

  6. When you mentioned the lumped it really got to me beause I was diagnosed with melanoma when my daghter was 3 months old. Thankfully it was caught early and 3 years later I am doing amazing…but not without some major life changes. I saw the diagnoses as a blessing because it helped me become the person I am today. Waiting is the worst part but you’re almost there. I’m thinking of you a lot (eventhough I don’t even know you?) and your beautiful family❤❤❤ Hang in there mama❤

  7. Amber. I know you get asked this a lot. But what camera and lens do you use for your photos? Anyone know?

    1. I use a Canon 5d mark iii and we typically use a 24-70mm but we have a few others that we use! xo

  8. Your extensions are all sold out. Are you going to restock your inventory so I can order some?

    1. Yes! We will be restocking around Thanksgiving for our official launch, so stay tuned!! 🙂

  9. Hi Amber – can you do a youtube video on specifically how you layer your lipsticks? I always struggle with making the lip color even all the way through. Also, do you ever use a base or anything?

  10. Hi Amber, I have been following your blog for awhile now. I just want you to know that I enjoy reading your blog so much and you inspire me to be a better mother, a better wife, and a better self. Thanks so much!

  11. Oh my gosh your outfit is so gorgeous in these photos! I am completely swooning over your skirt and shoes. ? Hope you guys have a beautiful weekend together and Happy Halloween! Can’t wait to see more of the kids costumes!
    Take care sunshine

  12. Hi Amber. So glad to hear everything went well with your surgery. You & your sweet family are in my thought & prayers. I’ll be in NYC to run the Marathon next weekend and would love to get a ice cream here. Could you please share the name.
    Thank you

  13. I love the maroon dust color. The coupon only works for printing. If you have the code for Amazon hat would be great if you could share it.

  14. Really nice makeup and the entire outfit. I ma glad your surgery went well, and you are doing well.

  15. Love it! I have to say that your kids are the prettiest and cutest little kids. I love to see the pictures you post of them!
    I was wondering why aren’t you using your ring anymore? Love to follow you Amber! Xoxo. From DC

  16. Your makeup looks amazing I love the lipstick! The ice-cream looks soooo delicious. So glad to hear that everything went well with the operation xoxoxo

  17. Hi Amber, I love how soft your make up is on this post and I think I like it even more than when you put more on your face. You are naturally so pretty (bless you you have amazing genes!) and the light on those pics is so flattering. What a sweet look as well, I love the contrast between NYC and your adorable paste look. I will check out in a shop the colour you mention, I am on the look for a nice pretty natural colour I can use on a daily basis when I look after the kids (and does not look too pinky or too full on). As always, I really love the fabulous photos David takes…. Big love, Julie xx

  18. So glad to hear everything went well! I always do cat-eyes with eyeliner as well 🙂
