So let's begin!
- Vitamin E oil for my cuticles. Having conditioned cuticles helps lengthen the life of your manicure and makes your nails grow strong and pretty.
- Epsom Salts are excellent for bath-time following a gruesome workout and helps tighten your skin! I learned somewhere online that Jessica Alba takes a 30 minute epsom salt bath every day. When I was competing, I made sure to take these baths for the entire week leading up to competition.
-Dolce & Gabana Light Blue has been my perfume of choice for several years now. I use this perfume for special days or dates. When choosing your signature scent...Listen to the people around you, they will let you know if the perfume you are wearing is working for THEM!! Don't get me wrong, I love the smell of this perfume - LOVE LOVE LOVE it, but to me the smell quickly goes away. I'm always encouraged when someone mentions they love the smell too, it means two things : 1. I am not stinky 2. The perfume still smells good.
- Balance is key in life, so I have adopted a second less fancy perfume for normal days. Anthropologie carries Original Scent Eau De Parfum- I love this. It smells clean but has a musky feel to it and it just makes me happy.
Okay so onto the goods inside..
Once I have my creams on, I make sure to apply a good eye-shadow primer to my eyelids. I use Urban Decay and have nothing but good things to say about it.
I like to put my eye-shadow and eye-liner on first before anything else, that way once it's all applied, I can clean up all the shadow and eyeliner that fell below my eye and onto my cheeks. It's cleaner going this route. I LOVE: Too Faced Matte Eye or Romantic Eye. I always use the darkest eye-shadow as my first layer of eyeliner. I follow up my line with either a pencil or I use this little gem I found at Target:
I always put on bronzing powder, no matter what season we are in. If I'm using mineral foundation, I use powder bronzer with my big bronzing brush and place it on the outer sides of my face making a c and backwards c on respective sides. If I'm using my airbrush foundation, I use the airbrush bronzer and blush.
Until next time!
