How I Do My Base Makeup

How I do my base makeup

I have been doing a variation on the same base makeup for years (if it ain’t broke, right?).  I actually have very difficult skin, but I always get compliments of how naturally good my skin looks (haha, they think I naturally look this good).  I will admit, I take very good care of my skin, but a good base makeup routine is key in getting a polished look.  Every skin type is different, but this is how I do my base makeup…

Quickest, Easiest, Chic Updo for Day or Night (and healthy for your hair)

Quickest, Easiest, Chic Updo for Day or Night (and healthy for your hair)

Starlets always want to look chic, but sometimes they have such a busy schedule that an elaborate hairstyle is impossible.  Enter my favorite updo.  This is truly the quickest, easiest updo you will ever do.  Plus, due to the fact that you won’t need to wash your hair as often if you pull your hair up, and the fact that I am using invisibobbles, your hair will actually be healthier than with any other updo.  This look is also chic for day or evening.  It’s so versatile, easy, and good for your hair that it may even become your go-to style… it definitely has become mine….

My Hair Care Wardrobe

You might say that my hair is the first thing people notice about me.  I started lightening it when I was in Cosmetology school and I’ve never turned back.  I can’t imagine myself as anything but a platinum blonde.  Several years ago, when I decided to enter the Miss Massachusetts USA pageant (really just to prove to myself that I could do it), I met with the official pageant hairstylist for a consultation.  He suggested that I wear my hair in long loose waves (which is my preferred style anyway).  He told me that many girls wear there hair differently for each part of the pageant (ex. down for swimwear, updo for evening gown) so that they don’t bore the judges.  I innocently asked if I should do something like that.  He then gave me one of the best compliments I’ve ever received.  He said, “Honey, there’s NOTHING boring about your hair.”

It was then that I realized, when you have a striking hair color, you don’t have to do much to your hair in order for it to be special.   I have also noticed, with the trends of purple, blue, pink, etc hair colors, that any color can look good as long as the hair is healthy and shiny.

So I thought I would compile a list of my favorite hair care products.  Now, I will admit that I’m a hair snob.  I only use quality salon products.  While I’ll happily but drugstore lipstick and eye shadow, I never buy hair care products in a drugstore.  You may not need as many products as I use (and you may need different one if your hair is not like mine: fine, stick straight, and bleached), but I highly recommend using quality products.  Your hair will thank you.  This is what I use….

Nail Polish Color Combos for Fingers and Toes

The traditional way to wear nail polish is to match your nails to your toes.  That is still a great way to look polished (pun intended), but a more modern way is to wear coordinating colors on fingers and toes.  Here are some color combos to get you inspired…
