AGE:  62
CITY/STATE:  Minneapolis, Minnesota
PHILOSOPHY: Make up is used to enhance EVERY Woman’s Beauty!
AM BEAUTY ROUTINE:   I believe in Chanel skincare because IT WORKS!  Cleanse with either Chanel Le LaitLe Blanc Brightening Tri-Phase make up remover, or L’Huile and follow with a Clarsonic and La Mousse. Tone with Chanel Le Tonique and then either Chanel Sublimage La Lotion Supreme, Le Blanc Lotion, Le Lift, or Hydra Beauty Micro Essence (on different days, different lotions) and apply serum, either Sublimage L’Essence, Le Lift Serum or Hydra Beauty Micro Serum.  Depending on the time of year, moisturize with either Sublimage La Crème (either Texture Supreme or Texture Fine).  Then Le Lift Eye Concentrate and Sublimage La Crème Yeux or Le Lift Crème Yeuxs.  For the neck Sisley Neck Cream or Natura Bissé Inhibit Tensolift and Skin Ceuticals Neck, Chest and Hand Serum, then makeup:  All Chanel. Le Blanc Brightening Make up Base and La Base Ombré Eyeshadow base, Le Correcteur Concealer, Vitalumiere Aqua foundation with SPF, Joues Contraste blush, Stylo Yeux waterproof eyeliner, 4 Ombres eyeshadow (Quads), Le Volume mascara, Lipsticks: Rouge Allure, Rouge Coco, Rouge Double Intensite, Rouge Coco Shine, Rouge Coco Gloss.
PM BEAUTY ROUTINE:  Le LaitLe Blanc Brightening Tri-Phase make up remover, or L’Huile and follow with a Clarsonic and La Mousse. Tone with Chanel Le Tonique.  I sometimes use Texture Supreme overnight because of it being so rich and then apply Le Lift Eye Concentrate and Sublimage La Crème Yeux or Le Lift Crème Yeuxs
CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT PRODUCT:  Natura Bisse Inhibit Tensolift for deep lines
CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT COSMETIC:  Chanel Le Correcteur Concealer
MOST EXPENSIVE PRODUCT:  Natura Bisse Inhibit Tensolift
BEST BARGAIN PRODUCT:  Lucas Papaw Ointment
COMMENTS:  If you do not put in the time (and expense) you will not have results and will look it. Think about the expense by dividing up how much per day it costs and only spend $ on Beauty products that give results for your age skin. Make up brushes are my tools of the trade and I cannot live without them. Keep your brushes clean and sanitized. Don’t touch your face, EVER! Catch yourself frowning and stop doing it, it will become habit so you won’t have to think about it anymore (frowning causes wrinkles but smile lines are something to be proud of). Wear Sunscreen everyday.

Yara Shahidi’s classic, bold hair made a voluminous statement pared with her elegant Chanel gown at Monday night’s Met Gala.  Celebrity stylist, Nai’vasha Johnson, teamed up with John Frieda Hair to create Shahidi’s glamorous 60 inch ponytail with some “whimsical texture.”

Johnson began by separating clean, dry hair in quadrants and taming frizz with John Frieda Frizz Ease Curl Reviver Mousse.  Thoroughly distributing the product through with a paddle brush, she then sectioned hair into three triangles and applied John Frieda Frizz Ease Dream Curls Air Dry Waves Styling Foam to enhance Shahidi’s natural curls.  Brushing each section smoothly from the nape, she clasped the sections tightly with a bungee to secure into a sleek ponytail.  Removing a small section of hair, she wrapped it around the pony to cover the cord, securing with a pin.  Then she misted the ponytail with John Frieda Frizz Ease Daily Nourishment Leave-In Conditioner to hydrate the hair and before adding a lace mantilla, in observance of the Costume Institute’s exhibition, Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.
