- What does Being Beautiful mean to you?
Beautiful means you feel comfortable in your own skin and you own it. Beautiful also means that you are good to others.
- What is your beauty routine?
I try to work out and drink lots of water.
Once a week, I put a hair and facemask on to take out any impurities in my hair and skin. The bonus to that is I get to squeeze in some “me time”.
I also use a primer before I put on any makeup. A professional makeup artist let me in on a big secret which is to let the primer do it’s job so I give it about 3 to 5 minutes to sink into my skin before applying makeup.
I use Korres products on my face and under my eyes. I love the results these products have given me thus far. Everyone is asking about my skin lately and I attribute it to this brand.
- What makeup product can’t you live without?
It’s hard to pick one so I will have to pick two: IT Cosmetics lipsticks and IT Cosmetics Build-a-Brow. These are staples in my makeup bag. Ladies, do not go anywhere else if you have thin, almost zero brows like me.
- How does makeup make you feel?
Words that come to mind immediately are: pretty, goddess, put together.
If I add on lashes, then I feel like I am a movie star and take tons of selfies and post to Social Media. Getting dolled up makes me feel great because I am often with my kids at their school during the day when I am not working.
- What is your go to makeup look?
I want people to notice that I spent time getting myself ready in the morning so that includes the whole look from hair, makeup and clothing. So my everyday makeup look is a full face of makeup; everything from brows to full coverage makeup to hide my red spots and full lined eyebrows.
- If you are going to an event, how does your makeup look change?
I deepen the eye makeup, do a winged tip of eyeliner and add false lashes. The false lashes give you the extra oomph in face-to-face conversations. I also use a non-drying all day lip stain that I adore and always use that for events, which means I can eat, drink and be merry all while having colour on my lips. As a redhead, if I do not have colour on my lips, I look pale.
- Any Beauty Tips you want to share?
Exfoliate. Be happy. Whatever is not working, get rid of it.
Toss out makeup you have not used in a year.
Try every type of mascara out there because it’s fun to do.
Share tips with your girlfriends and help them out.
- What is your favorite beauty tool?
My must have beauty tool is the IT Cosmetics Foundation in Fair/Medium. This product gives you full coverage and makes getting ready in the morning fast and easy. Since I get oily in the T-zone area, my go-to item is the Bye Bye Pores Finishing Powder. One can never have enough of this on hand because it can set your makeup; even bake under the eyes if you want but it will remove all shine and makes those pores disappear like magic.
- Who is your beauty role model?
Denise Wade from The Shopping Channel. She is gorgeous inside and out. She is a wonderful person to work with but also to chat and hang out with because she shares ALL her beautifying tips.
- Is it important to you to use makeup with skincare benefits?
Since we live in a technology age, I say a definite yes. Why not?!?!
- Is it important to you to use cruelty free products?
As much as possible. I was never much aware of this until working at The Shopping Channel. Overall, I prefer synthetic brushes and as cruelty free as possible products. IT Cosmetics is so good about this. Check them out.
- What did you enjoy about working with StyledLady4Ever?
I truly enjoy her motto, which is to “be beautiful”. When I see her sign off with those words, it reminds me to take time for myself and whip up a new hairstyle or try something different on my eyes that day. I draw on her talent that I see in pictures and videos online and try to add in something new to my routine. Being beautiful is a way of life so thank you Jewels!
