Happy Thursday!
We all get those days where we wake up, and we don’t feel the best, or think we look the best. You could’ve had a great night out, and drank too much wine, or going through major hormonal issues, and feel you are having severe breakouts. Well guess what? It’s all normal. We have all been through it one time or another, and I have some of the BEST beauty hacks that you will love. The best bet when going out, or you know you are going out, is make sure to eat before you go, and drink one glass of water between your glasses of wine, or your preferred drink. This helps majorly with dehydration. Dehydration causes the skin to look drab, and lose color. If you feel you have that Hangover face- try using a gel moisturizer on your face after putting in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. This will reduce your eye puffiness, and reduce the redness. A great one to try is the garnier moisture bomb.
Going out that night? The best way to prep skin is to use sheet masks. They sell great ones at sephora.These will instantly bring a glow to your skin like no other. Are you having severe breakouts due to hormones? Well my best advice is to dab Differin gel onto your breakouts. It will instantly dry your skin out, and it will be back to new in no time. Remember to always keep your skin hydrated by drinking lots of water, and try to avoid using different brands of skin care products. It can really hurt your skin.

Hello Sephora Lovers! If you are anything like me, shopping at Sephora is always an exciting adventure. You plan on buying a few things you need, and end up walking out with a whole bag full of goodies. Well as long as I’ve been shopping there for my favorite mascara, Dior, I have found many of the Sephora hacks to be of necessity, and helpful. First off, I hope you know that you can set up an appointment at any time to go in and get a total makeover. If you are unsure of makeup colors and such, let a Sephora consultant help you with that. Here are some great perks to your favorite store. Nars Blush

We all have those days when we get up and have multiple things to accomplish. My mondays are presumably workout class, grocery and errand running , and loads of laundry. I really don’t feel like moving around in a face full of makeup, so I have a quick five minute makeup application that will leave you feeling put together. 

First find a great tinted moisturizer or foundation primer. My favorite is Laura Mercier foundation primer. It’s the best. It gives your skin clarity and gives it great coverage. If you are using this , in no way do you need heavy foundation. Apply this evenly with a small sponge applicator. 

Next find a great illuminator. These are great with giving your skin a bit of radiance. Apply this to the tip of your nose, and on the inner corners of your eyes. Make sure you don’t apply too much to the tip of your nose. You will glow too much. 

Lastly, find your favorite mascara. Mine is the Benefit super curling lash mascara. It instantly gives your lashes fullness and thickness. Make sure you use your lash roller before applying your mascara. 

This 5 minute routine is all you need to get your days moving and feel and look great while doing it!

One of the great things about my job is the amazing partnerships I’ve made as well as the friendships I’ve made. I always love when I hear from a brand and they want to send me amazing products. I had the amazing experience recently of teaming up with http://www.siobeauty.com. I have to say I was blown away at the products and the results. One thing with aging, and being in the sun , is that our chests can take a hit on the aging and wrinkles. NO one likes it, and now there is something that helps it. Siobeauty has chest patches that you stick on your décolleté, and through the night works on minimizing those wrinkles and creping , leaving you waking up to an amazing new chest. I have to say I was thrilled with the results. The set comes with two patches ( which can be worn up to 15 times each). Then the cleansing pads and rejuvenation serum. I know some of you may have seen these on HSN. I will continue to use these patches forever. Many women worry so much about the aging face, but I have seen so many women in their 40s that may have these young looking faces due to fillers and such , but it doesn’t look good when you see their chests or even hands for that matter. The skin is one, so taking care of every part is essential. One important task of using the patches is to make sure the chest area is super clean before applying. A nice decollete is always sexy! Agree?

Who ever said that Matcha is only good as a drinking tea? Studies have shown that Matcha is now being infused in skincare products all around the world, and here is why! 

We all know that Matcha Tea has been around forever, and drinking it daily adds so much to your wellness and overall health. It’s loaded with antioxidants called polyphenols that our body needs on a regular basis. It’s a superfood that keeps on giving. When Matcha is applied topically, it can help soothe irritation and help prevent inflammation in the skin. The Vitamin E that is added to these skincare products helps moisturize the skin, and decrease redness. These products are prefect if you are struggling with dry skin texture or rosecea, which is a common problem. 

Origins sells amazing Matcha green tea products That will give you cleaner skin with better clarity. It’s best to use these products for at least a week to see the results. You can also find Matcha infused makeup wipes that gently cleanse your skin like no other. I personally love the Matcha infused makeup oil remover. Either way you like, the ultimate result will have your skin begging for more Matcha.
