1. Enhance your Summer Beauty Regimen

    The Summer sun had my skin begging for hydration, so this month I totally changed up my beauty regimen to a more oil-based routine with a fresh lineup of products. The end result… a dewey and extra glowy look, and an overall softness I can feel when I apply makeup! I am so in love with my new products that I wanted to share more details as to what I am using and how I apply them!!

    A new morning and evening addition is three spritzes of Laura Mercier’s ‘Flawless Skin’ Purifying Cleansing Oil, which I spritz after cleansing. The gentle oil deeply cleanses, removing all makeup and impurities, and leaves skin soft and dewy. {I actually can’t believe how much makeup is still on my face even after using removers and washing!!}. Next I apply Laura Mercier ‘Flawless Skin’ Repair Serum. This serum helps to significantly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and unveil healthy-looking, brighter, smoother skin. {I truly believe this is what’s making my skin so soft!!}. Follow with sunscreen during the day or moisturizer at night.

    Rose is all the rage, so I also gave the Laura Mercier ‘Flawless Skin’ Infusion de Rose Nourishing Oil a try {which is an alternative to the Repair Serum}. It contains a restorative blend of natural, skin-conditioning oils that infuse the skin with nutrients and balance its moisture, leaving you with a soft, radiant and renewed glow. If you prefer oils that smell as pretty as they look, I recommend this one.

    Then I am in LOVE with my Tata Harper Highlighter {which is so small you can throw it in your purse to apply later in the day for a little pick me up.} After applying makeup, apply above the cheekbone. And lastly, I love a little afternoon spritz of hydration {especially  if I don’t really have time to apply a fresh face of makeup}, so Herbivore Botanical’s Rose Hibiscus Hydrating Face Mist is my new go-to. Derived from pure plant extracts, the sweet smelling mist is a blend of coconut water infused with youth-boosting hibiscus flower petals. In the evening I will spritz over my existing makeup, then add bronzer, more eye liner, mascara, and lipgloss before heading out to dinner! It is also recommended for post-wash on cleansed skin!

  2. Cozying up with iluminage

    I am so excited with how my master bedroom is coming along… I feel like once you are cozy in your sleep space it finally feels like home. In line with this coziness I have to share my new favorite line of anti­-aging products that actually help you anti age and rejuvenate while you sleep from iluminage. The iluminage skin rejuvenating pillowcases and eye masks {which are beyond soft and feel super silky} are made with copper technology that help maintain your skin’s youthful appearance and minimize the visible signs of aging—including fine lines, wrinkles, and lack of smoothness while you sleep! Their pillowcase has become a staple in my cozy…

  3. Revelations RX

    In preparation for my busy Holiday schedule of traveling, parties, and a bit less sleep than I would like, I have been amping up my pampering regimen so I can look my best. So today I wanted to share a few new face favorites that are getting me through the season. Starting with Revelations RX’s Firming and Anti-Aging Face Mask. Apply the sheet mask and within 20 minutes your skin soaks up luxurious paraben-free ingredients {I love the Vitamin C and Lavender Oil in particular!}. Even after just one use you notice smoother and more radiant skin! I have been trying todo them…

  4. Laura Geller Baked EyeShadow Palette

    When it comes to dessert, you know I can’t resist a stunning table of baked goods, so when Laura Geller announced the launch of their ‘Baked’ Delectables Collection I was immediately intrigued. Baked eyeshadow? All the glam, nix the calories. Sign me up! As a play on this whole ‘baked concept’ I had some fun styling my photo shoot with the cutest delectable desserts, mini pink cupcakes, and equally delectable eye palettes. But seriously, I am in love with this collection. Each palette comes equipped with 14 baked pigment colors, each a long-wear formula that doesn’t crease or smudge.  The Delicious Shades of Nude is perfect for…

  5. Frette Bath Linens

    I am loving spending time in my new bathroom… a vanity area to prep for my day, natural light from my large window, counter space to lay out my makeup… it’s amazing how you truly appreciate these things after living in tight bathrooms with minimal counter space {or any space for that matter} in New York City! For today’s post I partnered with a brand that’s quite familiar with the idea of enjoying life’s small luxuries, Frette. Frette is one of the world’s leading fine linen brands, with bed and bath linens that can be found in some of the world’s most prestigious…
