Beauty Essence

1-Healthy ends: L'Oreal Expert Vitamino Color
2-Wood hair brush: Aveda
3-Moisturize conditioner: Giovanni
4-Full volumes shampoo: Fekkai
* A beautiful healthy hair is one of the most important thing for my career, so I'm very careful with the products I choose. 
I always go for the high end brands. You won't find them in a supermarket. I buy them in Ricky's (NYC) or any good hair salon.
I do the same process every time I shower my hair: First the shampoo, I use the full volume one so my natural waves they become more accentuated. Second the conditioner, I leave it on for about 5 minutes to have full moisturize. The last step, I brush my hair with a big wood brush and put some product in my ends to keep them  as healthy as possible. 
I dont use blow-dryers or irons but if you do, try to use the ionic blow-dryer or the ceramic iron. Between the worst, is the best!
1-MY perfume MY fragrance: Creed Silver Mountain Water
*Creed Silver Mountain Water is by far one of my favorite perfumes ever! Is very unique and distinct smell that not a lot of people wears but those who do, I always remember them. Creed smells like class and charisma.
Characteristics: A refreshing infusion of green tea and black currants. As bracing as a pure mountain waterfall in springtime.
  • Top Notes: Bergamot, mandarin
  • Middle Notes: Green tea, black currant
  • Base Notes: Galbanum, musk, sandalwood, petit grain
1-Sun-kissed mostruize: Nivea Sun-Kissed Legs
2-Self-Tanning body lotion: La Prairie

3- Body lotion: Johnson&Johnson Baby Cream Oil
4- Baby oil gel: Johnson&Johnson Baby Oil Gel
*Now that winter is around the corner, it's when the skin needs intensive care. 
My skin in winter gets pretty pale so that's why I try to keep my skin bronze with some self-tanning lotions like the La Prairie one or Nivea sun-kissed for the legs.
Also don't forget to moisturize it with any body lotion. I don't put it on the low part of my legs to avoid ingrown hairs or pimples. It's a little trick that the lady who does my waxing told me. It works!

1-Foaming cleanser: Neutrogena Visibly Even Cleanser
2-Redness sensitive skin: Avene Treatment cream for localize redness
3-Lip balm: Petit Bateau vanilla lip balm
4-Face lotion: La Prairie  Advanced Marine Biology day & night moisturize
5- Lift age correcting cream: Estee Lauder Lift Age Correcting Cream
6-Face sunscreen: Eucerin everyday protection SPF30
7-Eye makeup remover: Neutrogena waterproof makeup remover
*My face is my money machine so I really take care of it.
In the morning I put some sunscreen  face lotion SPF30 and on top of that La Prairie moisturize. 
I wash my face every night before going bed with the Neutrogena foaming cleanser after I put some anti aging cream around my eyes and sometimes if my nose is red I use the Avene redness treatment.
Prevention is protection! 

1-Blush brush: Sephora blush brush
2-Shadow brush: Sephora shadow brush
3-Mascara: Maybelline Waterproof Full'N Soft mascara
4-Eye pencil: Chanel waterproof eye pencil #61
5-Lip gloss: Kiehl's Pere Lipgloss
6-Eye shadow: Mac Black Tied Velvet shadow
7-Blush: BeneFit Dande Lion blush
*I'm very simple with makeup. I don't really wear so much stuff, but some times when I'm going out I put some eye pencil and mascara on. 
If I have a big event I love smoky eyes, so I try to create them with this Mac dark shadow. The last touch, some blush, and ready to go!

1- Hair remove machine: Braun Silk-Epil
*Is the closes option, after waxing, to remove hair from the roods. When I don't have time to go to waxing, I use my Silk-Epil for my half legs, armpits and bikini zone. I don't think is painful at all, but some people does.
Its very useful to have one of these machines at home for last minute trips or jobs!
