For glowing skin I prepped her face with Simple Protecting Light moisturizer and then added a few drops of Koh Gen Do Aqua Foundation in PK0. I then sculpted her cheekbones with Chanel Les Beiges Powder in 20 and added Le Blush Creme De Chanel in Inspiration on the apples of the cheeks.

Eye Makeup Essentials

If I don’t have my eye makeup done I just don’t feel ready for the world, ha. I’m sure you can relate. I have a few must-have eye makeup products, and at the end of the day I must remove it all because my eyes tend to be sensitive to mascara. So these are my eye makeup essentials.

MAC Pigment in Naked is a highly-concentrated loose color powder. You can wear this day or night… it shimmers, it’s long lasting, it’s glamorous.

Anastasia Beverly Hills long wearing black eye liner. I’ve tested a lot of eyeliner brands by drawing a line on the top of my hand and smudging them with my other hand. This one was the ONLY one that didn’t erase! The proof is in the pudding, ha.

MAC Extended Play Lash (in black of course), a lightweight curling, lifting Mascara in a glossy shade of Endless Black. This is my favorite because it really separates, lengthens and thickens without making a mess or clumping!

Simple Eye Makeup Remover Pads are what I use at the end of the day to gently remove all that eye makeup fun. These wipes by Simple are the perfect gentle cleansers with added vitamins to effectively remove makeup, even waterproof mascara. The pads don’t sting or irritate my delicate eyes and sensitive skin.

5 Reasons To Exfoliate Your Skin

My skincare routine simply isn’t complete without one key step: exfoliating my face. Before I discovered exfoliating, I would struggle to get rid of old and tired skin, which doesn’t comes off easily with just water in the shower. I thank god for inventing a face scrub… ohhh, the little things in life. Here are 5 reasons to exfoliate.

1. It gives me an excuse to use my favorite face scrub: the Simple Skincare Smoothing Facial Scrub, which gently lifts dry, dead skin cells and helps my skin look brighter and more evenly textured. Rice Powder is the exfoliating ingredient in this one, and it works.

2. It makes my 2 favorite foundations – Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme Makeup and Laura Mercier NEW SmoothFinish Foundation Powder – go onto my skin with ease, and makes my final look super smooth and radiant.

Christian Siriano Spring 2014

Christian Siriano was inspired by a recent trip to Isla Mujeres on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, and the destination’s exuberant color palette. The new collection features vivid prints, woven raffias, and sculptural organzas all in vibrant hues. “I wanted the collection to be light, feminine and romantic,” says Siriano. “Like the girl left the beach but she had a cocktail party to go to, and threw on a dress, a bright lip, and little highlighter.”
