Monthly Beauty Series: Get Ready With Food & Fashion Blogger Haley Willis

Friday, January 25, 2019

Welcome Back!

Continuing on with my Monthly Beauty Series, I have chosen one of my good friends Haley Willis to start off the New Year. Haley and I met right after high school through a mutual friend, and we bonded right away over our taste in music, and all things beauty related. Haley just recently started a new food blog called "whollyhaley", and is posting some of the most mouth watering whole30 food recipes! Keep on reading to meet Haley and learn all about how she incorporates her love for makeup into her busy life!

Helllooo! My name is Haley, I'm 26 years old from Rochester, NY. I have a food blog, whollyhaley that I just started a few months ago where you can find lots of good recipes! I spend most of my time cooking, exploring Rochester with my fiance, Josh and co-parenting our cats, Quinn and Hiccup. I also have an Etsy shop, Torrid Revival, where I sell some really great vintage pieces. As someone who is a big fan of makeup and skincare, I was really excited to be interviewed for Little Budget Beauty. Thank you, Becca!

What is your every day beauty routine (AM/PM)?

AM: - Wash face with Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel
- Apply Dermalogica skin smoothing cream all over face

For my everyday look I keep it pretty simple because I work in an office but currently I'm using: Becca Backlight Filter primer, Maybelline FITme Dewy+smooth foundation, Colourpop No-Filter concealer,  NYX brow pencil + Control Freak eyebrow gel, Physicians Formula bronzer, Benefit Roller Lash mascara, Colourpop Super Shock highlighter in Lunchbox.

During the winter I don't set my face at all because it just makes my skin look even more dry, but during the summer I use the Maybelline FITme setting powder too. If I'm really motivated before work (which is not very often) I'll reach for my Sultry eye shadow palette from ABH or do a simple wing liner with my NYX liquid liner. 

PM: - Wash face with Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel
- Apply 3 drops of Julep Boost Your Radiance serum all over face
- Apply Dermalogica skin smoothing cream all over face
My skin has been even more dry than usual this winter so 2-3 times a week I'll do a hydrating face mask at night too

What is the one product you could never live without?  
Definitely moisturizer!

Lipstick, or Lipgloss? 
Lipgloss for sure, I've tried so many different lipsticks but the maintenance of checking/fixing the lipstick throughout the day is just too much for me.

Liquid or Powder foundation? 
Liquid 100%

Liquid or Pencil Eyeliner? 
Again, liquid 100%

Falsies or Mascara? 
I definitely use Mascara more so I would have to go with that, but when the occasion calls for it I do love a good pair of falsies!

What is one beauty tip that you would like to share with everyone? 
Invest in skin care and figure out what routine works best for your skin. I spent years using the wrong products but when I finally got a facial for the first time and was told what my skin type was I began using the right products and over time its definitely improved my skin!

What is your first memory when it comes to makeup? 
In 7th grade I begged my mom to buy me the Dream Matte Mousse foundation, I vividly remember wearing it the first day of school and my mom took a picture of us before getting on the bus. I wish I still had that picture because it is insane how badly matched the color was and also just how terrible it looked on. Still went on to wear it for months though, of course.

What is your favorite part of your routine? 
Even though I love makeup, it's really satisfying taking it off at the end of the day and doing my PM routine.

If you could have anyone do your makeup, who would you choose? 
This is so tough, but I have to go with @RawBeautyKristi. She's one of my favorite Youtubers and I would love for her to do one of her eye looks on me!

Thank you so much Haley for participating in my monthly beauty series! To keep up with Haley on her every day life, go follow her on IG @haleywillis. She is a full time employee, blogger, cat mom,  and newly engaged to her long time boyfriend Josh (who is also is a super bomb ass cook if I do say so myself). 

As always, thanks for reading.
