When I’m trying to decide what makeup or beauty products to buy, one of the most important things I’m looking for is how long-wearing the product is. For many products, within seconds of application they rub off on my hands, clothes, and sometimes even on other people. I don’t like to look “washed-out,” so with some trial and error I work to find the perfect makeup for me!
Revlon ColorStay Whipped Creme Makeup in 320 Warm Golden and Jane Iredale Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream SPF 25 in BB7. I’ve tried many foundations, but these just stay put all day and both have a matte dry finish and non-greasy shiny finish. If you’re looking for a BB Cream don’t look anywhere else, this BB Cream by Jane Iredale is by far the best on the market. Most other BB Creams I’ve tried are too greasy and watery and they feel like a moisturizer as oppose to a foundation. The Jane Iredale one has the perfect balance of both.
Best Lipstick and Lipgloss
Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Light It Up (light coral shade) and Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Lip Gloss in Hot Shot (light bubble gum Pink shade). The lip-gloss by itself has great staying power, but when paired it with the lipstick – oh boy, you get nonstop color! These smells and feel cinnamon mint and very soothing. They are not greasy like so many lipsticks and lipgloss. These imo the best lipstick and lipgloss on the market today!
Best Eye Makeup
Bare Minerals Ready Eye Shadow in The Top Shelf (these are very clean eye shadows that have the perfect amount of shimmer without looking messy and glittery) and Anastasia Beverly Hills Covet Waterproof Eye Liner in Noir (black shade – this one just does not smudge for hours!).
Best Face Powder
Jane Iredale Pure Pressed Base Powder Foundation SPF 20 in Light Beige helps keep my foundation shine-free and in place all day.
Best Nail Polish
Essie First Base – a base coat that prolongs the staying power of any Essie nail polish – and then Essie Good To Go Top Coat, which provides a nice glossy finish to nail color, making it last longer.
Best Hair Shampoo and Conditioner
Pantene advanced keratin repair shampoo and Conditioner make my hair super smooth and frizz free that lasts for days. I also love Pantene Touchable Volume Hairspray that I spray after styling (please spray lightly and on ends), it smells amazing a keeps my hair style in place, it’s not sticky at all. And before I use a flat iron I spay Style Sexy Hair 450 Protect which smells so nice and protects my hair from heat while keeping my hair silky soft.
And of course, to remove all that great stuff without risking skin irritation, I use my old time favorites: Simple Skincare Cleansing Facial Wipes and Simple Make-Up Remover Pads.

Last month during my visit to New York City for Fashion Week I stopped by at Frédéric Fekkai at The Mark Hotel to get my hair blow dried. It was a much needed blow out. The New York weather makes my hair so frizzy, and what I call” “poofy” i.e. too much volume (LOL I’m not even sure this word exist in the English dictionary). And running around town all day, whose got time to do their own hair?!!
Fabulous Anthony at the NEW Fekkai Madison at The Mark Hotel just gave me Hollywood waves! Luv him:)
I crossed Central Park in a cab all the way to the East Side and arrived at the Frédéric Fekkai at The Mark Hotel. The building was so pretty and newly renovated which is kind of rare for NYC, everything is normally so ancient. My service was impeccable, and the best part was that I got to do my nails and my hair at the same time. I felt like I can totally can get used this life. Wouldn’t you?:)

Loved my hair stylist Anthony! He blew dry my hair and gave the perfect Hollywood curls without even using a curling iron. And Gabriela who did my nails with Essie Sexy Divine did a great job in making my manicure last for 4 days! I yet need to investigate which top coat she used on my nails. I assume it was Essie as well.

I totally admire Rachel Zoe. I know, another celebrity. But, I love her infectious passion for her work. It’s the way to live life, love what you do. Rachel is the quintessential example of that. A true inspiration!
I receive The Zoe Report though my email, and I must admit that I’m always very curios to find out what are Rachel’s latest style & fashion picks. Here is one: Chanel Intermezzo Nail Polish, $23. I love white as my nail polish. It’s a nice break from all the other dark colors, such as: red, black, purple. And it looks very clean, understated, yet very polished.
