imageAGE:  42
CITY/STATE:  Tallahassee, FL
PHILOSOPHY:  I believe you must always take good care of your skin by cleansing, toning, and moisturizing daily along with doing a mask monthly.  Eating healthy and exercising regularly also improves your beauty both inside and out.
AM BEAUTY ROUTINE:    I wash my face with one of my favorite products such as philosophy Purity Made Simple Cleanser or Embryolisse  Lait-Crème Moussant and spray on my Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs & Rosewater as a toner, moisturize with Graftobian Makeup Artist Skin Care Series OxyDerm Moisturizer, apply BECCA Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector, and proceed with my brow powder by Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Duo and MAC Paint Pot as an eye primer.  I chose one of my favorite foundation such as MAC Stuido Fix Fluid, BECCA Ultimate Coverage Complexion Creme or Make Up For Ever Mat Velvet+ Matifying Foundation and apply blush and Ardell lashes before using the RCMA No-Color Powder and Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs & Rosewater as a setting technique.  I barely wear lipstick and if I don’t I would use a lip balm instead.
PM BEAUTY ROUTINE:  My nightly routine is the same as my morning cleansing routine using the same products but I use my Clarisonic Mia 2 device to do a deep cleansing instead. This helps removes all my makeup after using the Huggies Baby Wipes as a makeup remover wipe.
CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT PRODUCT:  Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs & Rosewater, philosophy Purity Made Simple Cleanser, and Ardell Wispies lashes
CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT COSMETIC:  Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Duo, L.A. Girl Pro Concealer, MAC Paint Pot (Painterly or Soft Ochre)
 FAVORITE BEAUTY TOOL:  Clarisonic Mia 2
COMMENTS:  Always love the skin you’re in no matter what products you may use just know you’re beautiful just the way you are and makeup just only enhance what God has already blessed you with.  Love the Real “You” because we as women are gorgeous Queens!
