Perfect Lashes Everytime

8 Jul

Ok, I told you about my favorite drugstore mascara, but I haven’t told you about my ultimate favorite mascara, the one that I can not live with out!  I have tried all the mascara’s in the department store and the one that is by far the best is Chanel Inimitable Mascara Multi-Dimensionnel ($30 www.chanel.com).  In one stroke on your lashes this mascara separates and covers them all perfectly from root to tip!!  It plumps and curls the lashes  and does this all without any clumping!  I can not express how beautiful this mascara makes your lashes look!  The wand is so slender and it just separates each lash perfectly!  I use the regular version but you can also get it in waterproof.  I use black noir and it is perfect!  I can’t express how much this product saves me on time in the morning!  One quick sweep of the lashes and they are done!  This completes every makeup look and makes your eyeshadow pop!  If you are looking for a good mascara give this one a try it is AMAZING!!

Get Bikini Ready!

7 Jul

So, everyone that wears a swimsuit needs to make sure they are well-groomed.  If you don’t like to go get waxed, then I suggest trying my favorite hair-removal tool!  Bliss Bikini Perfect Deluxe Trimmer ($70 www.blissworld.com) is the best way to do at home grooming.  I love the epilator because it removes hair from the root and after using it for so long, my hair has stopped growing back.  I like to use it on both my bikini area and my underarms because it does not leave any red bumps or irritation.  Once you start using this regularly, the hair grows back thinner and slower.  Now, the truth is, the epilator can be painful…you do get used to it but if you are really sensitive, there are 4 other options that this product comes with so no worries, you will be taken care of!  I suggest this for travel or if you are a private person.  I like using this because it is cordless and I can do it “on my time” and I don’t have to make an appointment.  Don’t wait, this is a must to look like a supermodel at the beach this summer!!

Sun-Kissed!

7 Jul

I have finally found a great bronzer!!  Let me tell you, the search has been long and it has not been easy.  I am super fair-skinned so it has been hard to find a bronzer that creates that beautiful sun-kissed look!  I hate it when people look like J.Lo from the neck up and a snowman from the neck down, so after trying several products I came across Trish McEvoy Golden Glow Face Color ($35 www.trishmcevoy.com).  There is a soft copper bronzer on one side with a pink shimmery blush on the other.  The best part is that this does not give you a “glittery” look like other bronzers.  You just sweep your brush over the powder and apply it to your cheek bones or any other places you want a little glow.  This is very buildable so you can make it dark or light depending on your mood.  This really brightens up your face and is perfect for summer and fair skin.  If you want to try a bronzer for the first time, this is a great choice, this one won’t make you look ridiculous.  Enjoy adding a little color to your cheeks ladies!!

New Favorite Lipstick

9 Jun

I have a new favorite lipstick and it is Chanel’s Rouge Coco Shine ($32 www.chanel.com). It goes on very smooth and it leaves the look of a gloss.  It lasts forever and it looks so pretty with the little shine it gives off.  You can wear it alone or wear it with a liner.  My go-to color is Empreinte, it is a neutral but is so pretty for summer.  It really moisturizers your lips so this feels great when you put it on.  If you don’t wear lipstick give this a try because it is nothing like the “old school” lipstick you are thinking of!  It comes in 20 colors so I know you will find your favorite too!

Moisture For Your Eyes

23 May

I have really sensitive eyes and have used tons of different eye creams but a lot of them burn my eye area.  I have been using Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado ($28 www.kiehls.com) for a while now and it is heavenly.  It is a simple moisturizing eye treatment with avocado oil.  It is formulated not to migrate into your eyes and it is sensitive enough for all skin types.  Ever since using this my eye area has become brighter and my dark circles have reduced.  One way to prevent fine lines and wrinkles is moisture and you can really feel like you are getting that when you put this on.  It is a funny green color but it goes on clear.  Just use a tiny amount and dab it on lightly with your ring finger morning and night.  It is so funny because avocado’s are one of my favorite foods and now they are a part of my favorite skin care!  If you need to start using an eye cream this is a good one to try or if you need more moisture for your eye area this is perfect!

Neck Tissue Repair

19 May

One of the things I worry about with the whole anti-aging process is having a neck that looks like a turkey!  Have you every noticed those women that have great skin on their faces and their necks look 100 years older?  I really want to avoid that in my old age…So, in try to avoid gravity and neck wrinkles, I have been using Kate Somerville Neck Tissue Repair Cream With Peptide K8 ($150 www.katesomerville.com).  The science behind Peptide K8 is that it is supposed to reduce the volume, density, and depth of fine lines and wrinkles.  I have seen this in a lot of products lately.  The other benefits of K8 is that it helps with texture and elasticity of the skin.  Other ingredients help firm and tone as well as make the skin soft and smooth.  One benefit is that the jojoba and macadamia nut help keep the skin moisturized and prevent water loss.  When putting this on you only want  to move this in an upward motion.  I even put this on my bust line because I figure I need all the help I can get!  You need one pump and move it in an upward motion toward your face to help activate the ingredients.  The smell is divine and subtle so you won’t be smelling it all day long.  If you are worried about looking saggy and wrinkly from the neck down, try this cream you won’t be disappointed!

Correct & Brighten

18 May

Don’t get me wrong, I can’t live without my concealer, but I think having a brightening pen is a really great addition to your beauty bag!  I like to use Trish McEvoy Correct & Brighten Pen ($40 www.trishmcevoy.com).  It is best to use under your eyes to help get rid of dark circles and shadows that can be cast in this area.  It really brightens your eyes and makes your eye color pop!  You can put it on over concealer if you want a lot of coverage or use it in the place of concealer.  You can use it to cover any blemishes or contour any features such as your nose or cheek bones.  After I started using it I began to feel like I looked “dead” without it.  It really “wakes up” my face and makes my eyes look better.  Even if you don’t wear makeup, this will just liven you up” a bit and even you out.  It helps to diminish fine lines and wrinkles and if you have dark circles, they will be  gone in a flash!
