Last week I got together with the Guerlain team here in Guatemala to prepare a couple of tutorial videos for you. It's strange seeing myself on video without a drop of makeup on. So please, go easy on me! Hahaha...
Before our short trip to Chicago a couple of weeks ago, my husband and I may have gone a little overboard with the online shopping. Poor Gisa, I can't imagine how she dealt with so many FedEx packages arriving at her doorstep.
For me, healthy skin is a must. That's why you see me investing so much more on skincare than makeup. In my opinion, there isn't any makeup in the world, no matter how much of it you apply, that can cover-up an unhealthy skin. Let's not forget, though: your diet has a LOT to do with it as well. Your skin is an organ- the largest organ of the human body- so it makes sense that whatever you eat reflects and determines how healthy it will be.
As I told you last week, my husband and I will be spending the week here at the beach. We've decided to take a break from the citylife and extend our Semana Santa holiday by getting here a few days early. Both our lives have been very demanding and emotionally draining these past few weeks, so even though we still have to get (some) work done while we're here, somehow, working while listening to the ocean waves sounded like a much better idea.
Guerlain, a parisian brand which, in my opinion, creates some of the highest quality makeup in the world (I LOVE their eyeshadows), and that is also known for making the BEST bronzers in the industry- the Terracotta Collection- has now launched the Terracotta 4 Seasons, a bronzer which comes with 4 different shades and that is meant to
First it was the BB Cream, now come the CCs. I swear, it's like our quest for flawless looking skin is never-ending! Show a woman a small bottle that promises her magical, photoshop-looking results, and she's sold. But what is the difference? What does the CC Cream offer that the BB couldn't deliver?
A blend of 11 essentials oils purely derived from flowers and botanicals, Rodin Olio Lusso is a miracle oil created by Linda Rodin (one of the most interesting personalities I've read about recently) from what started as a quest for the perfect elixir that would satisfy all of her personal beauty needs.
If you've been keeping up with the latest beauty trends you already know that when it comes to makeup, this Spring it's all about clean, precise and organically drawn lines, healthy skin, faded hues and soft smokey eyes. The days of heavy makeup are long, long gone. Now, it's all about bringing out your best features with a small application of color; be it on your eyes, eyelashes (yes, colored lashes are back!), cheekbones or lips. Choose one but never many.
First I read it on Garance Dore's blog, then I saw it on the Today Show, and after a quick search in Google, I knew this was a trend that was about to explode. I know what you're thinking, "what the hell is foundation for nails, and why on earth would I need it?" Heck, I asked myself the same question! Could it just be a nude color nail polish? Well, no. It's the same concept, but better.
I'm a total sucker for beauty products (which girl isn't?), thus my lack of enthusiasm for purchasing beauty products (or makeup) while in Paris really took me by surprise. I swear, if you had seen how crowded the stores were (I had to wait in line just to enter a few of them!!), you'd have likely felt the same. It was nuts. NUTS. Can I stress that enough? It was a nightmare.
