At A Glance: My Face Products

Unknown-1 Unknown-2 Unknown-3 Unknown-4 Unknown-5 Unknown-6 Unknown

I’ve constantly revised my face products and foundation routine over the years and never stick to the same product for more than a month. However, at the moment, I have found a combination that works with my combination skin and provides moisture and oil control during these odd winter months.

  1. I always prep with my Cetaphil Daily Moisturizer. It has SPF and is a moisturizer that actual works for me and doesn’t leave my skin feeling greasy under makeup.
  2. I’ll spray some Fix Plus, to freshen and add a bit more moisture to the skin, and to fill in pores and create a smooth canvas, I use my Makeup Forever Step One Smoothing Primer.
  3. For foundation, I’ll apply a complete layer of my Makeup Forever HD Foundation with a beauty sponge. The concealer I use is the  Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer, and I set it with my Makeup Forever HD Powder.
  4. To add color, I use my favorite drug store bronzer, which is the NYC Mosaic Bronzing Powder. And for blush, I go in with Tarte’s 12 hour Blush in Dollface.

For more, stay tuned for new videos and my latest on the blog and youtube channel!



February Favorites!


Happy February! I thought I would do a little beauty segment and show my favorite products of this month! These are the products I use religiously and swear by! Enjoy!


I had to have a “What’s in my bag picture!” Looks more authentic!

1) Skin Care!


I have three products that I cannot live without this month! Skin care is really important to me and something I take very seriously! The first is the Kiss My Face Peaches and Cream body lotion. I found this in a local health food store! The scent is to die for,  and it contains all natural ingredients to moisturize and keep skin clean! It is not greasy like other lotions, which is a crucial part to any product I choose. The second is the Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Scrub in Pink Grapefruit! I love the little beads in the face wash! They feel great on your skin with warm water, and it also makes your skin feel actually clean after! Finally, Ponds Makeup Remover Wipes in Original are a necessity! This is the only remover I use to get my makeup off at the end of the day! It’s important to use a product that removes all the makeup, leaving no traces behind. This does just that! They are perfect for girls with sensitive skin too!

Along with being crazy about skin care, I am also crazy about what I use on my face for makeup! I want makeup that will give me a flawless, full-coverage look, but doesn’t make me break out! Although expensive, I use Nars Sheer Matte Foundation in Deuville. This is by far the best foundation I have ever used! It matches my skin perfectly and gives me a clean, matte finish on top of my normally oily skin.  To blend and apply the foundation, I use a beauty blender. These are also the best invention ever! They are a sponge that you rinse under water and use damp, in order to achieve a smooth and natural look. To cover up blemishes, I love my Sonia Kashuk Concealer Palette. It gives four shades: a lighter shade, medium shade, green shade to help redness, and a powder. This is the best concealer and covers blemishes instantly. This product can be purchased at Target! Another concealer I use to cover up under eye darkness, is my Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Darkspot Concealer Treatment. This is perfect for covering up dark circles under your eyes and highlighting the T-zone on your face! Finally, Lashes Lashes Lashes! I am obsessed with long, full lashes! Some people think you need to wear fakes to get them! That is false! I use Maybelline Great Lash Mascara in black! It lengthens and makes the lashes look fuller without having to deal with clumps!

3) Hair, Lips, Nails, Perfume

Finally, the rest! I am constantly curling and waving my hair! It is a change from wearing it straight or up in a bun! Everyone always asks me what I use to make my curls stay all day. I use Elnett Hairspray, which I’d like to think is my secret weapon! It comes scented and unscented and holds the hair all day without making it crunchy and hard! It is also the only hairspray that you can fully brush out! To cure chapped lips this month, I am an Eos addict. My best friend got me several for the holidays, and I haven’t been able to put mine down. The fruity flavors are so refreshing and they are easy enough to throw in your purse and go! The best nail polish on the planet is Essie! It has been proven to last much longer than others, and their colors are the best! Finally, the perfume of the month goes to Viva La Juicy by Juicy Couture! It smells sweet and feminine, but isn’t too strong to wear the entire day!

Those are my absolute favorites of the month! Enjoy and please try some of them out!
