WHAT’S MY DAILY MAKEUP ROUTINE? I GET ASKED THIS ALL THE TIME, OF COURSE WITH SEASONS AND TRENDS, MY FAV’S CHANGE, BUT HERE IS WHAT I AM DOING RIGHT NOW, AND IM LOVING!!! THIS IS MY SECRET TO THE SUMMER GLOW MAKEUP AND EVERY SINGLE PRODUCT I CURRENTLY USE.
FIRST, I CLEANSE WITH MEGA PURIFYING CLEANSER BY GYMED
THIS CLEANSER MOISTURIZES WHILE IT CLEANS AND REMOVES ALL MY MAKEUP, MY SKIN ALWAYS FEEL SO AMAZING
THEN, I MOISTURIZE WITH VITAMIN E, IT PLUMPS MY SKIN
THEN I PROTECT WITH THIS MOISTURIZER THAT HAS MAJOR ANTI AGING INGREDIENTS AND SPF OF 30
I MOISTURIZE UNDER MY EYES WITH MAC FAST RESPONSE EYECREAM AND MY LIPS WITH AQUAPHOR
NOW THAT I HAVE A CLEAN, MOISTURIZED BASE, I USE LAURA MERCIER OIL FREE PRIMER TO MAKE MY MAKEUP STAY PUT ALL DAY WITHOUT SHINE
NEXT I APPLY FOUNDATION, IN THE SUMMER MONTHS I SWITCH TO TINTED MOISTURIZER, BUT RIGHT NOW IM WEARING MAKEUP FOREVER HD FOUNDATION, ESPECIALLY WITH BEING ON CAMERA A LOT!
THEN I CONCEAL WITH LAURA MERCIER, I LIKE THE PEACH AND THE YELLOW IN THIS ONE PALETTE TO CONCEAL DARKNESS/PURPLE UNDER MY EYES, OR THE YELLOW FOR ANY RED BLEMISH OR UNDER MY NOSE WHERE USUALLY THERE IS REDNESS
THEN I SET ALL OF THIS WITH MAKEUP FOREVER HD TRANSLUCENT POWDER BECAUSE IT IS WEIGHTLESS AND DOESNT ADD ON MORE MAKEUP LIKE A PRESSED POWDER WOULD
TO BRONZE UP MY SKIN IF I WANT MORE COLOR, I USE MAC BRONZER, ESPECIALLY TO CONTOUR MY CHEEKS
THEN MY FAVORITE BLUSH IS NARS ORGASM
FOR MY EYES, I PENCIL IN MY BROWS WITH BEDHEAD BLONDE PENCIL
AND PRIME MY EYELIDS WITH URBAN DECAY POTION SO MY EYESHADOW DOESN’T MOVE OR CREASE!! DEPENDING ON MOOD I APPLY EYESHADOW, WETHER IT’S GOLD/COPPER WHICH LOOKS GREAT WITH MY BROWN EYES, OR I WILL GO DARKER FOR A SMOKEY LOOK, BUT, I USE THE NAKED PALETTE BY URBAN DECAY BECAUSE OF ALL THE COLOR CHOICES IN IT!
MY GO TO EYELINER SWITCHES BACK AND FORTH FROM MAYBELINE CREAM LINER AND LOREAL HIP GEL LINER, THIS HONESTLY IS THE BEST, I HAVE TRIED THEM ALL! I GET COMPLIMENTS ALL THE TIME ON MY EYELINER HOW BOLD IT IS AND DOESNT MOVE ALL DAY!
THEN, LOTS OF COATS OF MASCARA WITH MY #1 MASCARA, FLASIE BLACK DRAMA
MY LIPCOLOR I WEAR MOST IS PEACHY TONES, I SWITCH BACK AND FORTH FROM STILA AND LOREAL INFALLIABLE
ONE OF MY SECRETS TO MY GLOW IS BEFORE I MOISTURIZE, EVERY OTHER DAY I APPLY SELF TANNER TO MY FACE, AGAIN, I HAVE TRIED MANY BRANDS, AND THE ONE THAT I FIND DOESNT STREAK, SMELL LOUSY, OR TURN ME ORANGE IS JERGENS EXPRESS, MAKE SURE ITS THE EXPRESS, THE REGULAR GLOW DOESNT WORK AS WELL
I USE IT ALL OVER MY BODY TOO, JUST TO KEEP ME HEALTHY LOOKING, I CAN GET PRETTY PALE HAHAHA SO I NEED THIS , IT’S A STAPLE!
THEN TO FINALIZE MY LOOK, I SPRAY SOME MINERAL WATER SPRAY TO KIND OF RE-MOISTURIZE MY FACE AND SET THE POWDER LOOK SO I DON’T LOOK POWDERY, PLUS ITS GREAT TO KEEP ONE IN YOUR PURSE TO REHYDRATE MY SKIN THROUGHOUT THE DAY, IT FEELS REALLY NICE TO ESPECIALLY IN THE HOT MONTHS, THIS WILL KEEP YOU YOUTHFUL TOO.
AND I DRINK A LOT OF SMART WATER
SO THERE YOU HAVE IT, MY DAILY MOST CURRENT ROUTINE AND FAVORITES, HAVE ANY LITTLE TRICKS OF YOUR OWN? PLEASE SHARE THE LOVE.

The hair at Joanna Mastroianni has height at the crown but was slicked back at the sides and worked into this intricate knotted style at the back.
Joanna Mastroianni debuted her spring line on Sunday featuring her signature clean, sophisticated silhouettes with a modern twist. Joanna was inspired by Norman Jaffe’s architectural designs which Keiko translated into a modern, clean and sexy look.Keiko made the eyes the main focus by creating a soft smoky eyeshadow using MAKE UP FOR EVER’s Pure Pigments in black and grey and finished the look with a strong line under the eye using Dior Beauty’s black Liquid Eyeliner. The intense eye was complimented with a soft feminine Pink Peach lip courtesy of YSL’s Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick.
THE COLLECTION WAS STUNNING, AND VERY ELEGANT. I LOVED THE MATERIALS JOANNA USED, LAYERING ORGANZA, LACE,AND SILK GIVING EVERYTHING A LUCITE EFFECT.

TODAYS TUESDAY TREND IS THE MUST HAVE CORAL LIP THAT IS SIMPLY GORGEOUS FOR THIS SPRING! TALK ABOUT COMPLIMENTING SKIN TONE! READ ON…..
The season’s must-try lip shade is beachy and hot — sound familiar Miami? Instead of constantly reaching for our usual red, we’re switching gears for spring and embracing a coral kisser — inspired by the pretty . Coral lips on recent shoots I have worked on, including Spring Fashion Week! To help you pick your perfect coral match, here are a few tips, While the hue may look vivid, it’s a surprisingly versatile shade: “Coral is actually a neutral color, meaning it can be both warm and cool so it works for everyone.”
When it comes to selecting a statement-making pop of color for your lips, the trick to picking the right one is not based on your skin’s actual shade, but rather your undertones. “If your skin has gold or yellow undertones, a peachier or orange coral will be most flattering. If you have pink undertones, choose a pink or red-based coral.”
With those tips in mind, here are five new coral lip colors to get you started with spring’s freshest beauty trend. From shiny and sheer balm to high-impact lipstick, check out the prettiest peachy-hued lip products to add to your beauty bag.Tarte’s vibrant coral has a warm golden sheen to it and is infused with maracuja oil to make your lips look and feel, well, divine.

This Laura Mercier lipstick supplies a briliant, red-orange coral hue with a juicy shine.

So excited to get new makeup! who wouldn’t? I was in desperate need of a NEW foundation and was told by many to try Makeup Forevers HD Foundation, of course when you walk up to the testers there’s like 100 colors! The Makeup/Sales girl Rebecca was extremely helpful, I said, for some reason I can pick out foundation shades for everyone else but myself, she didn’t even hesitate to try some out on me, So I ended up with #120
Heres the best part…did you know that if you purchase a product from Sephora and bring it home and it, well, looks awful on you, that you can return it for a credit?!?
A little birdie told me that one…So guess what Im doing, Bringing back the Smashbox 15 hour one because I don’t like how it looks on me at all! And of course, I bought some other popular stuff:
Urban Decay Potion Eye Primer
