Where do I begin? I’m getting married in TWO MONTHS! It’s really happening. Finally!
Also, we moved to Boston!
Let’s start with the obvious, the makeup!
I am 100% obsessed with my new RCMA foundation. It’s my new holy grail. Why? It has 50% pigment compared to shelf brands with an average of 12-23%. Ish. RCMA is a professional grade foundation but takes a few tricks to use it. You’ll see this commonly used on set for television or movies. I mix mine with Farsali Rose Gold Elixre, Tarte Marcuja Oil, or sometimes Must Dew oil by Limelight. Tutorial on this foundation coming soon.
This is my favorite lipstick by YSL. The Rouge Volupté series is so perfect for quick on-the-go color. This shade, Rouge Pur Couture, is a high shine, extremely moisturizing stick. Best lipstick for dry lips. Amazing for summer looks. If you’re cool toned, the color will look a tad brighter and more orange. Warm toned complexions rock this as more of a red shade like me!
If you need a longer wear, I used NARS Cruella Velvet Matte Lip Pencil underneath. Careful! These amazing pencils go a long way, with a LOT of pigment. Dab some on and rub through the rest of the lip with your finger or a brush.
The powder pallet is by Mehron, gifted to me by one of my favorite vloggers online- Steven London! Watch him on Facebook Live @ The Scene on Monday, Wednesday, Friday’s at Noon.

How To Look Put Together
I am a Mom to three kids, but I am not (repeat) NOT a morning person. Wake up time is more like a zombie crawl to the coffee machine, while I simultaneously yell out that it is time to go. I even sleep in yoga clothes so that I can secretly wear pajamas to drop off the kids. Shhhh.
However, there are those occasions that I am not able to persuade the world around me to stop and wait for my coffee to take effect. Like those go-getter moms or those teachers that insist on morning conferences. I loathe those. HOWEVER! I have another secret trick to looking like a normal functioning human, and some days, full blown put together. Presenting-
