What To Wear For a Fashion Interview in the Fall

Fashion September 18, 2016

Toss your black slacks and white collar shirts. Be classy and feminine. First impression is everything, you must be well polished from head to toe. The dress I wore is by Rebecca Minkoff. I fell in love with the self-tie neck sash and how it cinched my waistline.  I felt like a modern Audrey Hepburn strolling the city.  I wanted to add a pop of color so I wore Jessica Simpsons heels, brought life to my outfit. I’m obsessed with my Tom Ford cateye sunglasses, it gives it a retro glamour feel. Last but not least, to complete this look, you must have your nails painted nude. It’s classier and acceptable in any job interview. The worst you can do is go on a interview and have chipped nails. Makeup must look natural and neutral, not like you’re entering the circus for an interview. Be the whole enchilada, brains and beauty. Good luck beauties!

Natural Ravishing Lips

Beauty August 10, 2016

It was love at first sight the minute I applied Bobbi Brown luxe lip color in Almost Bare. After one use, my lips felt ultra soft and looked naturally healthy. It’s both highly pigmented and creamy. My lips looked more plumped. The result was flawless, I had to research what were in the ingredients. Sure enough, I read it’s infused with vitamins C, E and MaxiLip, a powerful peptide. Brilliant idea, It’s the perfect nude color for an everyday look!

Night Time Skincare Routine

Beauty September 13, 2016

Did you know that cell turnover works faster when we sleep? This is why we must wash our face thoroughly every single night. Even if you haven’t worn makeup at all that day. There are so many pollutants in the air that gets trapped into our skin. A consistent and a proper night time skincare routine will help reverse years from our face. It can improve your skin tone and reduce blemishes. The image above shows the 9 essential products I use to prep my skin right before going to bed. Mind you, I don’t use exfoliation or face mask every single day, only used as directed. First, I use Aveeno makeup removal wipes only when I wear makeup. I use this to remove the dirt, excess oil and makeup off my face. Second, I lather my face wash in circular motion with Om Aroma Champagne Cleanser. Third, I exfoliate my face in a gentle matter. My favorite one is Joanna Vargas Exfoliating Mask, it leaves my face hydrated and radiant. I leave it on for 10 minutes or overnight. I let the fruit enzymes and vitamin c work its magic. Fourth, I apply a layer of Eminence Strawberry Rhubarb Masque and let it sit on my face for about 5-10 minutes. I rinse off with lukewarm water. Hot water will dry your skin. I pat dry my face with a towel. Then I apply Clarins Toning Lotion with Chamomile. My obsession! It leaves your skin soft and hydrated. I find a toner very useful because the moisturizer glides on easily. Fifth, I use Joanna Vargas Rejuvenating Serum as my moisturizer. The oil penetrates into my skin and leaves a nice lasting moisture shield.  I also dot on the rejuvenating serum then eye apply eye cream for an extra dose of moisture. Sixth,  Algenist Complete Eye Renewal Balm. It’s a multitasking product that diminishes wrinkles, fine lines, dark circles and puffiness. Don’t tug and pull while applying around the eye, gently dab the product on.  Last but not least, drink a glass of water an hour before going to bed. You wouldn’t want to wake up in the middle of the night to use the restroom. Voilà, next morning your face will look healthier, radiant and rejuvenated. Stay consistent and you will see better results. Pick out products that will work for your skin type, don’t get discouraged if you don’t see drastic results the next morning. No product will work overnight, you’ll start seeing results within a few weeks or 2 months.

Say Goodbye to Mr. Funk!

Beauty September 3, 2016

I don’t want to smell the funk, I want to smell the roses! I Introduce to you, Degree Motionsense Antiperspirant Sexy Intrigue Deodorant. It’s formulated with breakthrough motionsense technology. Every move you take, the fresher it smells as it releases the extra bursts of fragrance. Sounds like melodies to the ears, because it’s really accurate. It’s lightweight and lasts all day.  It’s tough enough even through  a long workout session. I love how it kills off the funk instead of masking over it. The scent remains the same, if not better. I’ve tried numerous of deodorants throughout my life, from drugstores to organic. Some worked for a while but it failed on me. My theory is, you have to change deodorants like you need to change your skincare routine each season. Well, I hope my theory is false. It’s a headache looking for the right deodorant. I want to commit to just one that will work efficiently. So far I’m intrigued!

Flawless Pouty Lips

Beauty August 24, 2016

One of my biggest pet peeves is dry lips like a cracked pavement floor. If I forget my lip balm at home, you best believe I will go to  a beauty store and purchase one. Otherwise, It would bother me all day. It’s a ritual to keep my lips supple and smooth at all times. Here are some of my favorite lip balms:

Super Goop Acai Fusion Lip Balm SPF 30: This is perfect for when you tan underneath the blazing hot sun. It protects and hydrates your lips. Love the Acai scent too, mmm!

Fresh Rose Tinted Lip Treatment SPF 15: I like wearing this alone for when I go to the gym. It gives a nice sheer rose pinky tone to your lips. It’s ultra hydrating and protects your lips from the sun.

Tata Harper Volumizing Lip & Cheek Tint in color Very Popular: I love how this tint is versatile and gives you a natural healthy look. It’s the perfect lip tint for an everyday wear. It isn’t hydrating so I like to mix this with my lip balms to give my lips life and brighten my face. I still have yet to use it as a cheek tint.

Aveda Lip Saver: The name “Lip Saver” speaks for itself. My everyday lip balm.  I love how it instantly moisturizes my lips the minute I apply it on. It’s like wrinkles being removed by botox, no cracks! It’s the perfect lip prep, I use it right before my lipsticks. It’ll penetrate in your skin without leaving a greasy look. What I love the most is that I don’t need to keep re-applying. Lip Saver lasts me all day. This way the product will last me longer. Think about how much money you’ll save. Who wants a lip balm where you have to keep re-applying throughout the day to only find yourself buying the same product that won’t give your lips justice?
