I was thrilled to be asked by Bella Magazine for my best tips and tricks and favorite products.  Enjoy!

How do you care for your hair after the summer holiday? I am very obsessed with a good hair mask! Use it once or twice a week in the shower, and it makes all the difference in the world.

How do you make your tan last longer? well, I don’t tan… way too pale! But, I know that most tanning formulations make tan extending creams. Beautisol is a favorite of mine.

What are your beauty essentials? Concealer!! I have two on me at all times. Currently loving Orlane and Laura Mercier

Whats your biggest beauty sin, if any?
Biting my nails. It is an awful habit. Just horrible.

Whats your fave scent?
I love mixing Kiehls Musk with anything vanilla.

What’s your top skincare tip? Always cleanse your face. If you are in a hurry, makeup wipes are a godsend.

Which upcoming autumn/winter beauty trends are your fave? I am always a fan of the deep berry lip.

Who gives you hair envy? Michelle Williams and her perfect pixie cut.

Any beauty gadgets you couldn’t live without?
A tweezer for any eyebrow strays.

Which products are always in your make-up bag? Concealer, a cheek and lip stain, and mascara

Who has taught you the most about beauty? My partner Mike. When you find someone who loves you unconditionally and makes you laugh than you feel beautiful all the time. He taught me alot about learning to love your flaws and just have fun!

What makes you feel glamorous? When I am cooking in the kitchen with a glass of wine in my hand.

Is there anything you would change about your looks? oh my… my height and my belly.

What products are you dying to add to your beauty bag? Anything by Kerastase haircare

If you haven’t heard, California is having a heat wave.  Sitting here in my non-air conditioned apartment is like sitting in a sauna. Needless to say, I am not a happy camper. At all.  On sweltering days such as this one, I tend to take alot of cold showers.
