About me: I love makeup and other products that enhance your inner and outer beauty. I think a radiant glow and perfect skin can always boost your confidence. My trick is having perfected a five minute face that I can always squeeze into my hectic schedule!
What’s in your makeup bag? My makeup bag is definitely overflowing, but I do have some absolute favorites (& essentials)! Glytone Mild Cream Wash , foundation with SPF is a must, Beautyblender’s Makeup Sponge, The BrowGal Eyebrow Gel, Cailyn’s Line-Fix Gel Eyeliner (black), It Cosmetic’s Hello Lashes Mascara , eyelash curler, 3 Custom Color’s Cool Pink Lip Liner, Smartlash’s Eyelash Enhancer, It Cosmetic’s Vitality Glow Anti-Aging Matte Bronzer, Batiste Dry Shampoo, Skindinavia’s Makeup Finishing Spray and a massive collection of lipsticks from Pink Holiday, Ellis Faas, Tarte, It Cosmetics & Too Faced.
#1 must have product: Skindinavia Makeup Finishing Spray (this was really hard) but once all my makeup is in place I don’t feel complete without it!
Favorite brands: It Cosmetics, POE, Hot Tools, butterLondon, Too Faced, PMD Personal Microderm, Tarte, Cailyn. . . to name a few.
Best beauty tip: Make-up can be so fun, and should never be a challenge. Make time to wake up your face with the bare minimum (if that’s only what you have the time for). A little concealer, powder, blush and gloss goes a long way. No time for mascara, no problem but still give your lashes a little curl!
Your biggest beauty concern: Getting WRINKLES! SPF is such a must, and I am a bigger cheerleader now than ever! Apply, apply, apply!
Skin type: Combination/sensitive
Get ready to kick ALL your old methods of makeup application to the curb! Old makeup sponges and foundation brushes will no longer have any use to you. I never thought I would be saying this, but after trying Beautyblender’s makeup sponge applicator I literally tossed my old cheap sponges that truly did nothing for [...]
When I blow out my candles this year, I might just be wishing for perfect skin! I do believe everyone is their own worst critic, but really why can’t my skin just be perfect? I am turning 25 next month and I still have skin problems – acne, dry skin and hyperpigmentation. Working in this [...]
True or false – can your skin be affected by the climate? This is very true! Both cold and dry or hot and humid weather can definitely take a toll on your skin. Not only does the temperature outside determine what you will be wearing that day, but it also impacts your skin and you [...]
As fall marks the transition from summer into winter, there are many changes that take place with the season. One major change is the transition of colors, it is time to push those summer ‘brights’ to the back of your closet and bring forth your fall color palette. I look to Pantone for inspiration, [...]
Can hair make or break you? I am not going to answer that, but hair is one of the defining characteristics of mammals. Not only do people come in every shape and size, but hair does too! If you really think about it hair has so many types. We are talking different colors, different textures, [...]
PROS: Sun exposure is a source of vitamin D, which helps us absorb calcium for stronger and healthier bones. CONS: Unprotected exposure to the sun’s UV rays can cause skin damage, eye damage, immune system suppression and skin cancer. The sun causes 90% of all skin cancers. Casual sun exposure with protection can [...]
The secret to beautiful skin is to keep it well hydrated. With summer in full swing, many of us are taking full advantage of the great weather and soaking up the sun. Dehydration occurs when the skin loses more moisture than it takes in. This often leads to thinning of the skin, which could bring [...]
