Juara Clove Flower & Turmeric Anti-Aging Serum

I absolutely can’t get enough of the Juara Clove Flower & Turmeric Anti-Aging Serum. It’s ‘clean’ meaning minus all the bad chemicals and ingredients. Now, not all natural skincare products are created equal, many of them are just way too oily and sit on your skin heavy…but not Juara! It’s like magic water, it works in harmony with my skin, it feels fresh right away and super hydrating. I even mix it with my favorite foundation. Love it! WHAT’S IN IT: Clove Flower, Turmeric, Goji Berry and an age-reversing Palm peptide combined with fresh sea algae and hyaluronic acid infuse skin with immediate vitality, hydration and a sense of wellbeing, leaving skin radiant, soft and smooth.Alcohol free. Oil-free. Check out Juara website.


Juara Clove Flower & Turmeric Anti-Aging Serum

In honor of Earth Month, Juara will be donating 10% of all websales to the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) for the month of April. NRDC is the nation’s most effective environmental action group that works with businesses, elected leaders, and community groups on the biggest issues we face today and has a great reputation in terms of transparency and accountability. Juara is a huge supporter of this organization because they are active in so many areas including creating a clean energy future, global warming, marine life, endangered wildlife, pollution, safe and sufficient water, and fostering sustainable communities.

NARS Summer 2014 Makeup

With temperatures beginning to rise (finally), NARS Cosmetics is thrilled to introduce its Summer 2014 ‘Adult Swim’ Color collection. Eyes pop with perfectly synchronized eyeshadows including neon lemon lime and icy lavender while smoky rose quartz and bronze add depth and definition. Feel the heat with a soft and sultry peach champagne for cheeks and a bold geranium for nails.

Also exciting, the NARS 413 BLKR collection has two new additions: a rosebud blush provides a rich, pop of pink while the shimmering champagne illuminator adds a soft pearlescent sheen to cheeks and face. Wear them layered to create a multi-dimensional cheek look or on their own for a softer, ethereal effect!

Both 413 BLKR shades will become available at NARS boutique and on narscosmetics.com beginning April 1. (via: NARS).

Herbal Essences Naked Cleansing Conditioner

The Herbal Essences Naked Cleansing Conditioner is worth all the raving! The best drugstore cleansing conditioner, it has Zero percent sulfates, parabens and colorants. It rivals professional shampoos. It’s makes my hair super soft in an instant, it doesn’t leave it stripped-out. I have very highlighted hair and I’ve tried everything…and what a surprise. It has an amazing calming scent of herbal mint fusion. Can’t beat the price!

“January was wearing black and white stripes, so we wanted to add a pop of color. The red lip also matched her amazingly cute Jimmy Choo bag which was mirrored with red lips on it!”


“I prepped January’s skin with Caudalie Beauty Elixir and Moisturizing Sorbet.

For a base, I used Tom Ford Beauty Traceless Foundation, and CHANEL Translucent Powder.

On January’s eyes, I used Tom Ford Beauty Eye Color Quad in Cocoa Mirage to define the crease then added a winged line in black using MAC Chromaline, then finished the look with CHANEL Inimitable Mascara in Noir.

For contour, I applied Charlotte Tilbury Bronze & Glow Palette and finished with Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic Blush in Ecstasy.

On her lips was my trusty and now discontinued favorite red lip liner by Stila #25 (try MAC Lip Liner in Cherry as an alternative), and Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Beso.



“January and I were inspired by Debbie Harry’s undone texture and attitude for her hair last night, to give some contrast to the structured look and classic makeup.”
