My Go To Glam Makeup Look

If you’ve been following me for a while you know that I absolutely love glam makeup. For today’s post I’ve teamed up with Sephora to show you my go to glam look. I wanted to create a red carpet inspired look that was wearable for any occasion, wether you’re going to the office or you have a special date. I decided to go soft on the eyes with warm tones and a rosy nude lipstick. I love neutral colors because they look great with all eye colors and skin tones. Here are some key products I used to create this look.


Amore Pacific The Essential Creme Fluid

I have oily skin and this moisturizer has been working so well on my skin. It’s super lightweight and instantly hydrates. It also helps my makeup go on very smooth.   It’s Packed with Green Tea antioxidants (each bottle contains 150 baby green tea leaves handpicked from AmorePacific’s green tea gardens) to unlock moisture to keep skin nourished throughout the day. Highly recommend it!

SKII Facial Treatment Essence

Essence has been helping my skin so much. It has improved my skins texture and clarity. It has also helped with moisturizing and brightening my skin. I used about 5-10 drops on a cotton pad and gently pressed on my skin. I also really like the scent of this product, its very soothing.

Jo Malone London Nectarine Blossom & Honey Cologne

I love trying new fragrances and I think I found my new fave. 😍 This cologne has a very subtle fruity floral scent. This fragrance is mixed with cassis, acacia honey and peach. Its very soft on the skin, and every time I wear out I always get a ton of compliments.

Givenchy Le Rouge Matte Lipstick 

The packaging of this lipstick is absolutely stunning.  It has silver details with Givenchy’s iconic leather case. I decided to use Nude Androgyne N110, a earthy toned nude shade. It’s extremely matte yet non drying and feels really comfortable on the lips. I think I found my new fave nude!

This past weekend I also had the opportunity to travel to New York City and attend the BFF Brunch with the Sephora & Marie Claire team. The room was filled with so many good vibes and stylish women. We got to discuss all things makeup, women in the beauty industry and what inspires us. It was so lovely and inspiring to spend time with women who share the same passion. Here are some photos from the most amazing brunch.

How To: Straight Hair With Volume

I’m so excited to share with you how I straighten my hair. This is a question that I get asked all the time on all of my socials. I’m working on my hair care routine so that will be up soon after this. I’ve teamed up with Conair to show you how I use the InfinitiPro by Conair 2-in-1 Stainless Styler to achieve straight hair with volume. You can buy the Conair 2-in-1 Stainless Styler directly at Target. I also have a video on my vlogging channel if you want to see the styler in action. I really like how easy this tool was to use. Check out the step by step photos below on how I straighten my hair.  Step 1: Add a heat protector, It’s super important for me to protect my hair since I do add heat to it daily.
Step 2: Work the Product into your hair. Step 3: Start parting your hair into small sections. I like to start from the bottom up.Step 4: Turn on your Conair 2-in-1 Stainless Styler. Don’t forget to remove the silicone tips. I really liked how fast it heated up (heated up in 30 seconds) so i didn’t have to wait to start using it.  It includes 5 different heat settings, I like to bring it up to 400 degrees. You can use it at a temperature you feel most comfortable and what is appropriate for your hair. You also have the option to curl your hair with the Stainless steel outer barrel which heats up to 265°F for effortless curls. This a really cool tool to travel with because it works as a flat iron and as a curling iron. It also has black titanium ceramic-coated plates which heats up to 400°F for smooth, shiny results. I have naturally curly hair so using it at the highest temperature helps straighten my hair the best way. I’ve been getting Keratin Treatment for about 3 years now so my hair is now naturally wavy after its air dried.
Step 5: Start by placing the Conair 2-in-1 Stainless Styler on the roots bringing it all the way down to the tips. You want to repeat this step 1-2 times until its nice and straight. Here’s a little tip when you get to the tip curve it in to add some extra volume and texture. Step 6: When I get to the front of my head I like to take very small sections and curve the Conair 2-in-1 Stainless Styler to add that undone messy look. Do this around the front of the head on both sides.  Step 7: Finally style your hair as you please and add some styling products if needed.
