One word that best describes your outlook on beauty: Confidence
Какой макияж / красота продуктов не может жить без?
I certainly can’t go without concealer, and the urban Decay 24/7 Concealer Pencil is pretty much my BFF. I also need to add some sort of color to my face, whether it’s bronzer or blush. Lately I’ve been loving the new MAC pro Longwear Bronzer in sun Dipped and the Yves Saint Laurent blush radiance in No.7. Mascara is always key, and the LancÃ´me HypnÃ´se Doll Lashes Mascara has been getting lots of love lately. Finally, I’ve always got a Maybelline baby Lips on hand, typically in Peach Kiss.
Когда ты начал попасть в макияж?
It all started when I was about 10 years old with BonneBelle rollerball lipglosses. I remember I used to keep them in my desk at school and slowly started adding in other products like eyeshadow, mascara, blush and lipstick over my teenage years.
What’s your best charm time-saving trick?
Stock up on multipurpose products… They cut down on schedule and space! I love benefit Dallas boxed powder because I can use it as a blush, bronzer and an eyeshadow. cream blushes can double as lip colors.
What’s your favorite charm tool?
I’d have to say my eyelash curler! I really love the Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler and LancÃ´me Le Curler.

What’s the best charm guidance you ever received?
My mother always told me not to pluck my eyebrows too much when I was a teenager. I really wanted to pluck them and make them skinnier, but I listened to her and kept them full (but still groomed). I’m so happy I listened to her advice!
Какой у тебя процедура по уходу за кожей?
I try to keep my skincare routine pretty basic. I have very sensitive skin, so I try to be as gentle as possible. morning and night I’ll cleanse my skin with Bioderma SensiBio Cleansing Water. I’ll use an eye serum like LancÃ´me GÃ©nifique, and then I’ll apply a basic moisturizer like Bioderma SensiBio Light and an eye cream like viewpoint The miracle Worker. once or twice a week, I’ll exfoliate with Kate Sommerville ExfoliKate (seriously the best exfoliator ever!), and I’ll use the Proactic Refining Mask as a spot treatment if any pesky blemishes show up.
Какая самая странная вещь, которую вы пытались во имя красоты?
It should have been a homemade face mask made with a bunch of natural ingredients that felt horrible and smelled disgusting… but I sat there and endured it!
Do you have a trademark look?
On a daily basis, I typically keep my makeup fairly easy with a neutral eye look, a bit of soft black eyeliner and mascara. Cheeks are typically a soft pink. nude lips. even though I have very stick straight hair, I love to curl it and get beachy, voluminous waves!
Are there any charm decisions you’ve made that you look back on and ask yourself, “why?!”
Определенно! I remember when I was first getting into makeup, the only place I could really ‘get into’ was my mom’s makeup bag. I wore her bold, blue eyeshadow, bright pink blush and deep rose lipstick to school when I was in grade 8… I thought it looked so awesome back then.
Где ваши любимые места для покупки?
Sephora and MAC are my charm headquarters! For clothing, I’m in love with Dynamite (it’s a Canadian store…but they have started opening up a few places in the USA) and Lululemon for yoga/lounge wear. When I want to do a little ‘dream’ shopping, I’ll browse the shoes at Holt Renfrew.
Что-нибудь еще, что вы хотите поделиться?
Since it’s summer, I’ll pass along my two favorite suggestions that are tried, evaluated and true. If you get a mosquito bite (or if you’re like me best now and have your legs covered in them), rub a little deodorant on them and it will stop the itching. Women’s white, solid stick deodorant only! If you get a sunburn, smother on some plain yogurt, and let it sit as long as you can stand it. It will smell awful, but it will feel great and help that burn heal very quickly!
