Coachella was just the beginning… Festival season has arrived! Here’s a few tips to enjoy them looking BEAUTY-full!
1. Keep your skin glistening use a tinted moisturizer with SPF. Gives good coverage & allows your skin to breath in the heat. Try: Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer.
2. A lip & cheek tint is great to throw in your bag & go. You can keep light & fresh for day. Then add more color to go into the night. Try: La Metier de Beaute lip/cheek cream in Zinnia.
3. Keep dry shampoo on deck to keep that tousled mane sexy & roots free from oil as you dance the night away. Try: Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo.
4. Keep a travel sized makeup refresher spray in your bag. The cooling mist feels amazing & gives your makeup an extended boost. Try: Avene Thermal Spring Water.
5. A good worry-free waterproof mascara! Try: L’oreal Voluminous waterproof in Noir.

Date Night Beauty Tips

1. Skip heavy lipstick, you want something light & kissable. Preferably a gloss that taste good. Try: Philosophy lip shine in Vanilla Birthday Cake.
2. Loose the hair spray for the night. Nothing is more un-sexy than hard mane. Touchable, soft hair is always a “do”. Try: Pantene AirSpray for body and bounce without the crunch.
3. For a quick J-Lo glow add a few drops of liquid luminizer to your moisturizer. Try: Stila’s All Over Shimmer liquid. 
4. Nothing says red-hot like bronzed skin. Use along the perimeter of your face & jaw bone for a more realistic application. Also pick a brand that doesn’t have too much shimmer. Try: Too faced Soul Mate Bronzer (named after cute couples like Carrie & Big).
5Seduction begins with a good mascara! Give your eyes a bambi-like fringe using lash fibers. It coats & builds on the ends of your natural lashes, giving the appearance of falsies. Try: Loreal’s False Fiber Lash Mascara.

2016 is all about exploring new places & trying fresh things. Being a traveling jet-setter is now easy with these expert beauty tips.


Most products now come in a travel size or create your own personal beauty to-go bag with everything you use on a daily from face wash to eye cream. Try: Bobbi Brown Refillable Travel Bottles (only $10).

Sea Hair

The “wet” look was all over the runway this season. Spray your damp hair with a leave-in conditioner to avoid split ends later, pull into a low messy bun and pin for a model off-duty look. You can undo later and reveal sexy beach waves. Try: It’s a 10 Miracle Leave-in.

Post Flight-Fright 

Airplanes tend to dry out your skin because of the recycled air. Restore it’s moisture with a good skin & hand cream. Try: Weleda Skin food.

Getaway “Do”

Don’t waste time while you’re on vacation putting on a full face of makeup. Mascara, gloss, and go! Try: Dior Show Black Out Waterproof Mascara and Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm in Coral Crush. (Invest in a good pair of sunglasses). 

In Case You Forgot…

Shaving cream… Use conditioner to soften your skin. It will help your razor glide better. 

Body Scrub… Grab a few packets of sugar from your hotel or while you’re at dinner. Mix with your shower gel or shampoo.
