Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Shadow Primer

Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Shadow Primer is the best ‘invention’ ever and a must have in your makeup bag. This shadow primer intensifies your eye shadows and eye liner and makes it last all the long. Don’t leave the house without it! Use it with Smashbox Full Exposure Palette it works well together. When I first got the Smashbox eye shadow palette I used it without the primer and the eye shadows felt sheer and didn’t ‘stick’ to eye lid. Once I used the Smashbox shadow primer the eye shadows intensified and made it look and feel pigmented. Pretty amazing.

What’s In My Beauty Bag

Spring is officially here! It’s exciting to finally see more sunshine, and to, of course, look good. So here is a sample of what’s in my beauty bag to help me feel good.

For my skin, and especially the skin on my face, I love Simple Skincare products. I don’t believe you need to use fancy or expensive skincare products to keep your skin in shape and looking amazing. I like to wash my face with Simple Moisturizing Facial Wash in the shower or to help remove makeup and dirt. It feels very creamy, yet light, refreshing and super gentle to my skin. I also love the Simple Eye Make-Up Remover Pads. This one is a must-have. Just wipe and go. I seriously can’t function without these. Both products are fragrance free, which is a god sent, ha. Don’t like perfumes on my skin.

For my hair I’ve discovered U Luxury, aka United Luxury Shampoo & Conditioner – a UK brand. It smells light and very moisturizing without weighing my hair down.

Erica Rose Interviews With Marta Walsh

I’m very excited to share with you my interview with Erica Rose. You might remember Erica as the “socialite” on ABC’s hit series THE BACHELOR: Rome. She was one of the top 6 women competing for Prince’s Lorenzo Borghese heart. I certainly can’t forget Erica and her love it or hate it personality. She stood out as a true reality star. Erica’s most recent project includes staring in a new VH1 reality series “You’re Cut Off” premiering next Wednesday, June 9th, 2010. I must say, this interview with Erica helped me to get to know her a little bit better. I’m quite impressed how grounded, smart, and witty, she comes across. If any of you out there dream on becoming a reality star you might want to read this interview and learn a thing or two from lovely Miss Rose.

In this interview Erica Rose talks to Marta Walsh about her experience in The Bachelor: Rome. What does it really take to be a reality star. Her new reality show “You’re Cut Off”. Explains why she is more than a ‘Socialite’. The People who inspire her. Why Heidi Montag would be invited to her dream and ultimate dinner party. What’s in her makeup bag. And future plans.

Marta Walsh: Where do you call home?
Erica Rose: Right now Houston, Texas because I’m in law school there at the University of Houston- I just finished my second year. I travel a lot though and have houses in Aspen and Palm Springs so I also feel like a Cali and Colorado girl as much as I do a Texan.
