Skinny Marg Recipe

We have a heatwave coming our way and the news is saying the heat index is going to be 110 degrees. PHEW- so let’s cool down together with this Skinny Marg Recipe!

There’s no denying it that I am a tequila girl- so give me all the margaritas (and queso) and I am one happy gal. We had a dinner party a couple of months back and I was told there would be margaritas involved but little did I know they would be “skinny margs.” I have heard of that phrase but never had really indulged in a skinny marg- so I thought why not!

What makes them skinny? Tequila and water, okay and maybe some simple syrup… but really that is it!

What you will need to make a Skinny Margarita:

  1. Tequila (Jose Cuervo Especial- Blue Agave)
  2. Water
  3. Agave Simple Syrup (Found at your local store- target, hyvee, aldi)
  4. Limes

Step 1: Fill your cup with ice and 1 shot of tequila (or let’s be honest, you can add a shot or 2!)

Step 2: Add your Agave simple syrup desired amount- start with less and add more at the end if need be. (Found at Aldi, Hyvee, Target)

Step 3: Cut a lime in half.

Step 4: Squeeze lime over ice, tequila and simple syrup. Stir and you have yourself a skinny marg!

Enjoy!

Everyday Makeup Tutorial- Instagram Stories


EVERYDAY MAKEUP TUTORIAL-IG STORIES

Over on Instagram stories I shared a quick tutorial on how I do my makeup everyday. You can head here to see the tutorials just look for the highlight “Makeup Tutorial” and watch away! Below are the products I used.

Primer:
I use the Super Serum + CBD from Hora which is super moisturizing but helps leave a nice natural glow look. (Use Code: Mika at checkout for FREE SHIPPING) This is something I also use at night as as serum it helps with acne.

Foundation:
The foundation I use is a medium/ full coverage but I honestly do not feel as if it is “full coverage” it is light and the more you add to your face it will become full coverage. I throw this on practically everyday and it does not feel thick at all. (Color- Creme)

Concealer:
I LOVE Tarte’s tape shape and I use the shade “Light”. This has to be my go- to and my favorite concealer of all time. Some may say it a little heavy but I have naturally dark circles so I have found that this is what works best for me!

Setting Powder:
I apply the translucent powder under my eyes and in the problem areas that need to “bake” meaning to settle the makeup a little longer so it does not come off. The translucent powder also leaves a nice matte finish on the areas you highlight with it. I use this after I am finished to set my makeup.

Eyeshadow:
Lately this palette has been my go- to. I have hazel eyes and I really feel like it makes my eyes pop and I love all the blush tones.

Eyeliner: 
I have used this eyeliner I think since I was in 8th grade- NO LIE. It is from the drugstore and has a price that is hard to beat and is super easy to apply with the tip is has.

Eyebrows:
Recently I have been working on growing out my eyebrows and the product I have been using to fill them in has worked like a charm. I use the color (blonde) This is a drugstore product that has a good price on it as well.

Mascara: I have very sensitive eyes when it comes to mascara so this mascara has been a go-to that has really lasted all day without flaking.

Blush: I recently started exploring this brand and really have enjoyed the consistency and the quality. The price is worth it for sure!

Highlighter: This highlighter is my on the go buddy!

Lips: 
I love a good lip color and this Matte color and brand is a good one because it is priced well and long lasting for me! (Color- Lover)
