January Beauty Favorites


Happy Friday! I don’t know about you guys, but I’m really looking forward to this weekend as it will be the last relaxing one for the next few weeks. Fashion month is upon us as we have been prepping for many weeks to organize everything - which is a lot. From travel agenda, to meetings, showroom pulls, events, shoots and every day life/errands, it does take a bit of a toll on me. So I’m happy to enjoy not doing a whole lot this weekend, even though we are still shooting content and strategizing for future work, it’ll be nice to just sit back and unwind. In the meantime, here is my monthly roundup of beauty favorites!  From my latest favorite fragrance, to hair products, liquid matte lipsticks, a rosy face spray, to innovative makeup you all need to know about, it’s all happening now in today's post so don't miss out! Continue reading to learn more about these products and where the shop them!

ACQUA DI PRIMA MAGNOLIA NOBILE

Inspired by the beautiful palazzo gardens of Italy's majestic Lake Como region, Acqua di Prima Magnolia Nobile represents the essence and expression of natural, understated elegance. Top notes of Italian bergamot, lemon and citron blend seamlessly with the magnolia accord, a rare essence that can only be extracted with time and dedication. The heart evolves with refined notes of rose, jasmine and tuberose. The base notes unfold with sandalwood, patchouli, vetiver and vanilla. A unique and enveloping harmony. An unforgettable, captivating fragrance. Available at Sephora.

KÉRASTASE RESISTANCE COLLECTION

I've been using Kérastase haircare products since I was in college! They have amazing hair masks and lotions on top of shampoo/conditioners. With their new Resistance collection, it's the perfect regiment for hair seeking a healthy length. I’m growing out my bangs right now, and this collection has really helped speed up the process of my hair getting longer. My hair grows fast on its own, but after using this collection for a while now and the results have been amazing! Here's a breakdown of these four products:

Kerastasé Résistance Masque Thérapiste

Reparative Bandage Treatment Fiber Renewal care for thick hair. The thick, creamy reparative masque deeply nourishes and works at very core of the hair, for very damaged, over-processed thick hair. The hair is deeply repaired as its core. The hair fiber regains its strength and elasticity. Hair is toned and revitalized.

Kerastasé Résistance Serum Extentioniste

Strengthen and protect strands with the Kérastase Resistance Serum Extentioniste, a nourishing leave-in hair serum that helps to protect against breakage. The non-greasy formula uses a host of powerful ceramides to seal the hair cuticle whilst a blend of lipids creates a smooth surface, creating a fortifying effect from the inside out. The highly concentrated serum forms a defensive barrier over the scalp to protect against damaging environmental aggressors, whilst also sweeping away impurities for a fresh appearance. Hair will be boosted, revitalized and given improved resistance.

Kerastasé Résistance Shampoo

Strengthen hair from the inside out with Kérastase Resistance Bain Extentioniste, a fortifying shampoo that uses powerful amino acids and ceramides to improve elasticity from root to tip. Targeting weakened and brittle strands, the silky formula helps to rebuild the hair’s internal structure to make it more resistant to breakage, whilst a blend of lipids creates a smooth and shiny surface. The shampoo gently lifts away the build-up of dirt, impurities and excess oil from the scalp to leave locks fresh, clean and strong. Suitable for weak hair types.

Kerastasé Résistance Conditioner

Create smooth, silky and flowing locks with Kérastase Resistance Fondant Extentioniste, a creamy conditioner that expertly detangles strands. Powered by a blend of ceramides and Maleic Acid, the formula helps to fortify the natural hair fibre from the inside out, improving strength and elasticity to encourage growth. Replenishing moisture to the scalp and nourishing from root to tip, the purifying conditioner will leave locks super-soft, supple and noticeably healthy.

SUNDAY RILEY GOOD GENES

For an instant boost, reveal brighter fresher skin with Sunday Riley Good Genes Treatment. Harnessing the exfoliating power of lactic acid, this intensive treatment helps to instantly brighten skin while working to reduce the appearance of fine lines and restore damaged skin. Enriched with licorice and lemongrass, the rich formula works to reduce the appearance of dark spots and boost blood flow, helping to bring new life to tired skin, in time revealing a fresher, more even-toned face. You can use Sunday Riley Good Genes Treatment as a mask for an instant rejuvenating boost, or apply daily under makeup to reap long-term benefits and get skin truly glowing.

LAURA MERCIER INFUSION DE ROSE FORMULAS

LAURA MERCIER NOURISHING OIL

Lightweight yet powerful, this fast-absorbing oil leaves skin with a healthy glow – soft, radiant, and renewed. A true multi-tasker, Infusion de Rose Nourishing Oil also provides multiple beauty benefits:
•Skin: provides soothing nourishment and moisture.
•Hair: conditions dry ends and tames flyaways.
•Nails: hydrates and softens cuticles..

LAURA MERCIER CLAY MASK

A clay mask that deeply purifies and cleanses the skin, blended with the unique soothing and nourishing properties of the rose. A rose-infused mask powered by rich clays and infused with soothing, moisturizing ingredients to deeply cleanse the skin and remove surface impurities. 

LAURA MERCIER FACE POLISH

This creamy scrub cleanses, exfoliates and removes dead skin with purifying microbeads. A luscious blend of emollients softens the skin, leaving it smooth and even-toned. Suitable for all skin types.

LAURA MERCIER NOURISHING CREME

This light, whipped nourishing crème is supremely hydrating and offers intense moisturization and conditioning with mango and shea butters. Its unique formula rejuvenates the skin’s appearance and strengthens its moisture barrier, helping to replenish and balance during the day and restore natural radiance and softness at night.

FIRST AID BEAUTY HELLO FAB BENDY AVOCADO CONCEALERS

This full-coverage, buildable concealer provides a natural, luminous finish. It stretches and bends with skin’s movements throughout the day so it never cracks, creases, cakes, or settles into fine lines. The clean, skin-loving formulation contains avocado oil, vitamin E, and mushroom extracts to help hydrate, condition, and soothe skin while caffeine helps to diminish the appearance of under-eye puffiness and dark circles. The clean formulation contains no artificial colorants, is safe for sensitive skin, and is available in seven adaptable shades. The shade I use is 2.

Tata Harper Clarifying Spot Solution

TATA HARPER CLARIFYING SPOT SOLUTION

Tata Harper Clarifying Spot Solution Skin Care Serum: Infused with healing copper, magnesium, zinc, essential oils, and powerful herbal extracts, this solution treats blemishes by neutralizing impurities and reducing inflammation on the spot (literally). Whenever I get a big ole’ honking zit (hey, I love my dairy) I use this bad boy to quickly zap them away. And it’s the perfect travel size as well.

REVLON ULTRA HD MATTE LIP MOUSSE

Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Mousse Hyper Matte is a pigment packed, creamy formula that glides on smooth for hours of comfortable hyper matte wear. My favorite lip shade is Spice.

Benefits:

  • Hyper Matte meets creamy comfort for up to 8 hours

  • Lips feel nourished, silky, and conditioned

  • Extreme precision, plush applicatory defines and contours lips

  • Non-drying formula with micro-fine mattifying powders glide on smoothly

  • Non-smudging and lightweight

DR. JART + CICAPAIR TIGER GRASS COLOR CORRECTING TREATMENT

A green-to-beige color-correcting treatment that corrects redness and helps protect skin from environmental aggressors. Cicapair™ Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment is the all-in-one treatment that includes a color-changing capsule within the formula to cover blemishes and restore the look of the skin's strength, health, and vitality. It provides SPF 30 protection from UV light, and it forms a dust barrier to protect the skin from the environment while enhancing the skin's viability. It restores the strength of skin with the resurrection plants, houttuynia cordata and yarrow. It's infused with sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium to help improve the skin's moisture levels and restore fatigued skin for a healthy appearance. 

KORRES H2ROSE HYDRATING FACE MIST

This invigorating mist, made with aloe vera and orange blossom flower water, hydrates, refreshes, tones, and minimizes the appearance of pores with every spray. It can be used throughout the day to refresh skin. It feels weightless on the skin and after spraying my skin always feels energized and toned. With a subtle rose scent, it is a definite refreshing face mist!

Top 5 Favorite Beauty Eye Products for the Holidays

This post is sponsored by Clear Eyes but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.


‘Tis the season for getting picture perfect ready from head to toe. With all the holiday parties and get-togethers with family and friends, not to mention running around doing all that last minute shopping and day-to-day errands, we all can use a little pick-me-up when it comes to our eyes. Because this time of year we always want to look our best and the last thing we all need are red, itchy eyes. When it comes to eye care, we want products we can trust that will eliminate eye redness and irritation and allow our eyes to shine bright and capture attention. Look no further, I got you covered, ladies! In today's post, I'm sharing my top 5 favorite beauty eye products to relieve redness leading to whiter and clearer eyes that will complement your holiday looks so you can be Insta-ready anywhere! Even while doing that last minute-holiday shopping ;)

1. CLEAR EYES MAXIMUM REDNESS RELIEF

There is a reason why Clear Eyes is the #1 selling brand of Redness Relief Eye drops. The Clear Eyes Maximum Redness Relief eye drops provide soothing comfort from irritation, so red eyes or eye irritation don’t get in the way of looking Insta-ready for your next holiday party or shindig. Conversely, after a late night of celebrating, you don’t want your eyes to look or feel like they’ve been up all night. Clear Eyes makes sure last night’s celebrating doesn’t get in the way of how you look and feel today. That way you can still be on the go, getting all those errands checked off in time for Christmas! Check out the before and after pics above to see the immediate results! Wowza!

2. TARTE MANEATER LIQUID EYELINER

This vegan, quick-drying liquid eyeliner features intense black, lash-enhancing pigment spheres & a waterproof formula to ensure tonight's eyeliner won't turn into tomorrow's smoky eye. The micro brush tip glides on smoothly to create precise definition or drama where you want it & moves with the contours of your lashline for the perfect, one-swipe application. You can use it to sculpt & fill in spaces between lashes for an ultra-black boost in volume or extend it out to a sexy #maneater wing.

3. BOBBI BROWN LONG-WEAR CREAM SHADOW STICK

Effortless and high impact, that's the essence of NEW Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick. This do-it-all formula glides on tug-free and can be used to shade, define, smoke up and highlight eyes. In subtle to eye-popping shades that last for up to 8 hours without creasing, flaking or fading, it's a stroke of genius. Just swipe on and go. I use the shade, 'Golden Pink' for the bottom inner lids of my eyes to give an extra brightened look. You can use white or any other shimmery/metallic rose gold, silver, highlights like this stick to give that effect.

4. FIRST AID BEAUTY EYE DUTY TRIPLE REMEDY

First Aid Beauty Eye Duty Triple Remedy is a multi-tasking eye treatment that immediately brightens and minimizes imperfections with sheer, light reflecting pigments while offering long-term skincare benefits. Retinyl palmitate and GABA in the formula help smooth away the look of fine lines and wrinkles while caffeine and licorice root work to diminish the appearance of dark circles and undereye puffiness. The unique stainless steel tip mimics the shape of your pinky, delivering a cooling application while supporting microcirculation to enhance the product's benefits. Eye Duty Triple Remedy works great as a light coverage concealer or may be applied directly under your favorite eye concealer.

5. LANCÔME MONSIEUR BIG MASCARA

A BIG volume mascara that delivers instant heart-stopping volume for your biggest, blackest, boldest lashes yet. You'll know Monsieur Big Mascara is the one at first stroke. The ultra-creamy formula glides like silk onto lashes to deliver up to 12 times more volume than bare lashes alone with up to 24-hour wear. No touch-ups, flaking or smudging. Perfect for your BIG evening out and even the morning after. Monsieur Big's brush has a unique shape with soft, wavy fibers to deliver the perfect amount of formula with the very first stroke. The ultra-creamy formula has supple waxes and polymers to adhere immediately to lashes for BIG, buildable volume and length. Apply one coat and you will see why Monsieur Big is the one.

Purchase Clear Eyes Maximum Redness Relief Eye Drops on Amazon for 10% off using the code 10CLEAREYES from 12/19-1/11. You can also shop directly by following the links in each item I've listed. What beauty eye products do you use when your eyes are red and are looking a bit dull?

November Beauty Favorites

My monthly roundup of beauty favorites is now live on the blog! We have an assortment of skincare and makeup products, old and new, that I’m so excited to share with you guys! I love each and every one of these items as if they were my firstborn child (okay… pushing it there a bit LOL) but really, they’re just that good. I’ve discovered a K-beauty brand that has my all-time favorite cleansing balm that smells out of this world and is affordable; a super luxe creme that will probably have your eyes rolling (and not in a good way) but is sooooo completely worth its price; multi-faceted palette that makes for a blush, lip/eye tint; a men’s soap that I’ve been obsessed with its scent since I was a little girl, and the only perfume I’ve been wearing these days is done by the Italians… it’s all going down here on M +S! Continue reading to learn more!

LANCÔME ABSOLUE WHITE AURA

Looking for that extra luxurious skincare item for this time of the year? The Absolue Luminous Rejuvenation: an ideal look of rejuvenated skin, incredibly luminous. Lancôme has created Absolue White Aura Cream, specifically developed to reveal skin's brightness. White rose extract for the first time is paired with Pro-Xylane™ in a subtle, pearly texture, elegantly rich, yet fresh. Exceptional results; skin seems hydrated, rejuvenated as though illuminated. Skin seems to glow with an aura of light. 

BVLGARI LE GEMME REALI VERIDIA EAU DE PARFUM

I literally can’t get enough of this fragrance. Essence of galbanum, incense tears, bourbon vanilla, Veridia is a mysterious elixir, a concentrate of opulence with a deeply contrasting and charismatic Oriental woody green silage. There are other scents from the collection, but this one, by far, is my favorite. Everything about this bottle screams decadence, and Bvlgari is just that. If you’re looking to get something extra special for your day but not going too far over your budget, this perfume will make her VERY VERY happy. And you too, I know for sure! :)

Transitioning with Olay during NYFW

MAGIC IN A JAR: Olay Regenerist Whip with SPF 25


This post is brought to you by Olay but all opinions are my own.

This summer was a first for me. I wore little to no makeup! Aside from a tinted moisturizer here and there, I've cut out makeup all-together to give my skin some breathing room. Especially when summer's in New York City are not cool at all. The humidity alone will wreak havoc on your face! So I find it imperative to take breaks in between to keep my skin fresh and healthy. I've been trying out the Olay Regenerist Whips with SPF 25 and all I have to say is wow! Continue reading to learn why this is my latest go-to moisturizer at the moment. 

Time and time again as the seasons change, I make slight tweaks to my beauty routine. I think it's great every few months to switch up your regiment to refresh your skin to new nutritious ingredients. To me, it keeps my skin fresher and more active. And with Fashion Month around the corner, I'm super excited to have the Olay Whips with SPF with me to bring along a rather crazy couple of weeks. With long nights of editing, events, early morning meetings/shoots, then the shows on top of after-parties, I get sleepy just talking about my schedule. Imagine how the skin reacts to little to no sleep!

Made with a unique formula, including Active Rush Technology that transforms from cream to liquid on the skin for instant absorption, it also is able to absorb oils on your skin throughout the day, for a dewy (not oily) finish. My skin is velvety-smooth, it's like the no primer, primer! And anything that's going to cut my time in half when getting ready is a major bonus during hectic days as I previously mentioned, because let's face it (no pun intended...) who has all the time in the world to get ready when you should be out ready to take on the world?! ;)
