Beauty Tip of the Day:

My favorite tip of all, HUGE SUNGLASSES!!!!! Not only do they look hot and accessorize any outfit but they prevent you from squinting and getting those dreaded wrinkly eyes. The bigger the better!!! lol. The more skin they cover up, the more skin they protect! Any one who knows me personally knows I'm obsessed with huge designer sunglasses. I wear them day and night. It's also a great way to cover up bare eyes when you just don't have time to put on makeup.

Beauty is skin deep???

Ok, so let's start at the beginning...
The most important step to beauty is taking care of your skin! I really can't stress this enough. It may seem pretty simple and basic but the damage we do to our skin lasts a lifetime.

My advice and daily regimen...

Moisturize- lotion, lotion, lotion, then put on more lotion. Not only does it moisturize your skin, but also forms a barrier to protect your skin from everyday elements such as wind, dust, and sun. Finding a moisturizer with anti-aging ingredients can benefit anyone at any age, you can never start too young. (products I use... Oil of Olay Body Lotion, Strivectin SD for face, neck, chest, and hands)

Vitamin E Oil- easiest to apply in the shower, personally I apply it 2-3 times per day. The reason I specifically say Vitamin E oil is that it's simply better for your skin. The Vitamin E helps to slowly repair minor scars, scratches, and imperfections in the skin.

Sunscreen- ALWAYS use sunscreen!!!! The most common cause of wrinkles is sun damage. Stay out of the sun, and most of all stay out of tanning beds. If you really want to be tan, fake it, use tanning sprays or lotions. A good affordable one is from Victoria Secret. (products I use.....SPF 100, Lorac Tantilizer bronzer is an absolute fave!)

Exfoliate- It's important to exfoliate daily to get rid of dead flakey skin. Exfoliating will leave you skin feeling soft and youthful. Now here's my favorite beauty secret of all...I use coffee grounds to exfoliate my body while in the shower. The coffee grinds not only exfoliate extremely well but the caffeine actually helps minimize cellulite. If you check out the ingredients on most expensive cellulite creams you'll notice one thing in common, they all contain some variation of caffeine. After one use you will immediately notice firmer skin. The easiest way to use daily, pour coffee into your hand or mix in a small bowl with oil (baby oil, vitamin e oil, olive oil, etc) or body wash, apply using a circular motion over your entire body. Just be gentle if you decide to use on your face. For a more intense application, apply the coffee mixture thickly to your skin then wrap your skin in plastic wrap, leave on for about 20-30 minutes, then rinse. Afterwards apply lotion and enjoy smooth cellulite free skin! This is a process I always use right before photo shoots to have perfect skin. (products I use...Neutrogena Microdermabrasion kit on my face, coffee grounds)

Well that's it for now, a basic start to my series of beauty tips. You asked for it, so here you are! xoxo

BTS 101...

For the past week since starting this blog, I've wondered what I was going to do with it. After long thoughts and lots of suggestions I've decided that in addition to my everyday blogs I am going to start a series of beauty and makeup tips. I am constantly asked "how to?" and "what's your secrets?""what products do you use?". If anyone has any specific questions email me or leave them as a comment here.

Over the next couple days I'm going to work on starting this project, which will include a series of videos on makeup application to achieve the "look" you always wanted.

Stay tuned, I'm really excited about this project! My modeling experience has gained me lots of behind the scenes secrets I would love to share with everyone!!!
