For some insight on incredible skin, read on after the jump.

FIVE to EIGHT favorite make up products:

1. Shu Uemura Face Architect Smoothing Fluid Foundation in 774. Shu Uemura is the absolute best brand when it comes to creating the best and most even skin tone. My mom introduced this product to me a few months back, and I’ve been hooked ever since. It provides great but lightweight coverage, perfect for that 5 minute make up routine you’ll need when you’re late and rushing out of the house.

2.Shu Uemura Pressed eyeshadow in ME Black 990. I swear by this product!This baby has been my one and only love for as long as I can remember. Smokey eyes are the only type of eye shadow I can dawn on my face without looking like I came out of a cheap drugstore. ME Black 990 provides the best color, and the right amount of shimmer for that day to night look.

3.Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler. The best there is. Perfect curl and perfect angling!

4.MAC Technakohl Liner in Uniform. I used to use black eyeliner to line my chinky eyes, but I realized that this lighter golden brown shade makes my eyes look less intimidating and more approachable. I love how this stays in place despite the humid weather (no more raccoon eyes!)

5.Nars Blush in Orgasm. There’s a reason why this is a classic favorite. It can suite almost all skin types. It’s light shimmer looks cute during the day and sexy at night
Five favorite skincare/bodycare/haircare products:

1. Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream
This skin-hydrating facial moisturizer instantly relaxes your stressed pores and softens dry skin!
2. Kiehl’s Nymphaea Alba UV Shield
Sunblock as make up primer and protection from the sun is best when it isn't sticky. I love the consistency and smell of this particular brand.
3. Kiehl’s Abyssine Eye Cream
This anti-wrinkle defense cream relaxes stressed eyes, especially when stored under low temperatures.
4. Kiehl’s Ultimate Strength Hand Salve Lotion
"for workers hands" It seals in moisture and keeps your hands soft the whole day.
5. Kiehl’s Cucumber Herbal Alcohol-free Toner
The consistency and smell of this product is perfect!
6. Shu Uemura Skin Purifier/cleansing oil
Instantly takes out make up without drying out skin. It's even safe to rub on your eyes! It can even take out the toughest waterproof mascaras!
favorite CHEAP ITEM:
Petroleum Jelly as an all around item (lip balm, eyelash moisturizer, make up remover, skin softener)


Creme de la mer Moisturizer!!!
best beauty/fashion advice ever given:
Put on sunblock everyday before you leave the house and take off all traces of make up before you go to bed!
