Great Day St. Louis Post

I had such an amazing experience today! Great Day St. Louis asked me for my expertise on how to get a summer glow and I put together a short segment that would work for all women no matter their style. 

I’m having issues posting the embedded segment but a click HERE to watch if you haven’t seen it yet!

Here are the products I used on the show:

1) Clarisonic 

2) Clarisonic Opal

3) Stila One-Step Corrector

4) NARS Tinted Moisturizer

5) YSL Touche Eclat Highlighting Pen 

6) NARS Orgasm Illuminator

7) YSL Faux Cils Mascara #5

8) YSL Glossy Stain #16

The way to wear a bright lip is with Glowing Skin and of course, confidence. Everyone should have their one go-to bright color that makes a statement and makes them feel like a rockstar for a day. 

Tips to get GREAT Self Tanning Results!

A few things I fail to mention in my video (ahem.. it was 7:30am) are the following tips:

-Always exfoliate before self tanning. I exfoliate every day with my Clarisonic but sometimes you need more than that. I would recommend something (for the face) like a St. Ives Apricot Scrub (low end) or Kate Somerville Exfolikate (high end) once or twice a week, or specifically before self tanning.

If you are in the market for a Clarisonic and also are a fan of fake baking you need to get the Clarisonic Plus. It comes with a body attachment which works great with the Clarisonic Body Exfoliator (low end since it comes with it) or my absolute favorite Jo Malone Vitamin E Body Scrub (high end). 

-Another great tip that I am being a total hypocrite about is that it is best to self tan in the evenings after a shower. Since you dont want streaking it’s best to avoid self tanning then putting something wet on your face (such as skincare & makeup). The other perk of self tanning in the evening is that you can sleep with it on the skin allowing it to soak in more and that way you can shower it off in the morning and not smell like self tanner all day. 

Tip: Some self tanners can come off on your sheets if you sleep in it. The products I used in the video will not (at least they haven’t for me!). 

Rockstar Inspired Smokey Eye in less than Ten Minutes!

Update: I noticed a bit of creasing after a few hours since I didn’t put on an eyeshadow primer. I should have used the NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base as it is clear and won’t change the look at all it will just keep from creasing.

Emma Stone on the cover of July Vogue- Get the look!

The July cover of Vogue just leaked and needless to say Emma Stone is showing her rarely seen feminine side. As she is becoming more famous and transforming into a Hollywood leading lady, her style both fashion and beauty is quickly adapting as well. While the leaked pics aren’t the highest resolution (as of today), I thought it would be nice to give some tips on how to recreate her look. 

1. For perfectly smooth skin start off with a great skincare routine.  

I recommend everyone to use the Clarisonic with a non-drying cleanser. Follow with a hydrating Serum such as Kate Somerville Quench and then a hydrating moisturizer such as Diorsnow Gel Creme. Follow with a Primer such as Make Up For Ever HD Primer.

2. Have the perfect complexion.

My skin begs for good coverage but light texture during the summer. Cover any blemishes with a concealer the color of your skin. Follow with Dior AIRFLASH Foundation sprayed on a flat Kabuki brush and buff it into your skin. Highlight with the YSL Touche Eclat under your eyes, on the brow bone and bridge of your nose. Dust a light pink blush on your cheeks such as Deepthroat by NARS. 

3. Make your eyes pop!

Conceal any redness or imperfections with a MAC paint pot in Painterly. Dust MAC Brulé shadow with a blending brush up to your brow bone. Follow with NARS Eyeshadow stick in Goddess around the inner corners of your eyes and a little on the center of your lid. Follow with a long wearing precision eyeliner such as NARS Via Veneto around your eyes on the waterline. Smudge a bit throughout the bottom lashline and set it with a Volumizing Mascara such as Clarins Wonder Perfect mascara. 

4. Baby Pink Pout.

NARS makes the most perfect pink lipstick that isn’t drying. The shade is Roman Holiday. Try it out!

5. Defined Brows

Defined brows are ALWAYS in style. If you’re new to the idea, skip the pencil and go for a light neutral taupe such as Omega from MAC or Blondie from NARS. Brush the color into your brows in the direction of the hair growth with the Bobbi Brown brow brush. 

This is the perfect date night look for Summer. Enjoy!
