What are the daily beauty must-haves in your routine?
Most of the things I do revolving around beauty have to do with trying to stay tan. Not a real tan, I’m obsessed with sunblock, but I just want to “look” tanned. So I wear bronzer everyday and spray tan myself with Lavish Tan (my favorite sunless tanner) at least one every four or five days.
What’s your number-one rule for healthy, glowing skin?
A good moisturizer with sunblock! I think my skin always look better tan, but if I were to go in the sun everyday, my skin would quickly become wrinkled and even worse, I could end up with skin cancer (this happened to my best friend so I am very serious about it). I use Vassuer daily moisturizer because it has SPF, make my skin so smooth, and smells so good!!!
Any skincare favorites you would like to share with our readers?
Vassuer Daily Moisturizer and Lavish Tan that I just mentioned. I am also a huge fan of my Indie Lee Blemish lotion and stick because I tend to break out on my chin and this blemish stick is something I can easily carry around with me and use on the go. When I do break out, it goes away quickly because I am constantly treating the area with this stick.
Do you have a quick fix or makeup trick to hide pimples?
To hide them I just use a little concealer. But I don’t want to just hide them, I want to get rid of them quickly! That is why the blemish stick is so handy.
How do you deal with dark circles?
Considering the fact that I never sleep, I must have major dark circle. My cure?… Dunkin Donuts coffee. Ha. Kidding. I just use concealer under my eyes, but the Ellis Faas LIGHTS Highlighter Pen might just be my secret weapon when it comes to brightening up my entire face. It is probably one of my favorite things I use 🙂
One hair care tip that you always follow?
I try not to wash my hair everyday and have started using dry shampoo lately. Ever since I started doing this my hair is so much healthier.
Do you have any favorite DIY recipes (like a face mask)?
No, I stick to what the professionals put together 😉
