Dont spend tons of $$$ of skincare. RECESSION PROOF SKINCARE REGIMEN

I have tried everything from La Prairie, La Mer, Clarins etc. These are all great products but if $250-$1000 dollars isn't in your budget for skin care I have something for you have to try. One thing that all skin care products have in common is HYDRATION which is very important!! Moisturizer is the way your skin way of quenching its thirst. 

This product from ROC happens to be my favorite. On one side of the pad is soapy so it cleanses and on the other side of the pad is a little more textured to help you get rid of all those dead skin cells that are just resting on you face and making you look dry. Also helps diminish the appearance of fine lines to keep you looking younger.
ROC RESURFACING DISK $8.97 US

Next product that i love and would just recommend doing this once a week is this Laura Mercier Face Polish.  What a scrub does is remove dead skin cells. The older we get the longer it takes longer for our skin cells to renew themselves on their own, so exfoliation helps speed up that process.

LAURA MERCIER FACE POLISH $30.00 US
 
Now please don't laugh at the next product. lol  I'm pretty sure some of you are saying "hell no" or "that's ghetto"... lol but don't knock it until you try it.. I started using NIVEA cream one day after i ran out of my pricey moisturizer and fell in love! Its super rich in moisture, i even use it under my eyes. I recently started using it on a couple of clients. I hate when your putting foundation on someone and there skin is so dry that it makes the foundation look horrible. Guaranteed  you will love the glow it gives to your skin. I'd rather look dewy and shinny than dry and rough.. lol DON'T YOU AGREE?

NIVEA CREME $6.00 US

**They do have a Nivea Cream that is specifically for the face, so you dont necessarily have to use this one**

R&B singer ASHANTI is BRINGING IT in her new video!

R&B singer Ashanti featured her new video on 106 & Park yesterday. We have never seen Ashanti with this look but you know what..... I AM LOVING IT! VERY BOLD CAT EYE, makes Amy Winehouse cat eye look mediocre.



For the people that are not that skilled in the makeup department you can cheat your way to the perfect cat eye w/ these eyeliner stickers. You stick them on the eye lid and your done!!



On this second look she is sporting some fierce lashes and BOLD BLUE lips. Not sure exactly what lipstick was used but I'm pretty sure you can check out Keyshia Dior's line www.kaoir.com and check out: #kaoirdoll. and finish it off with a glitter lip gloss.

Pocket Rocket for your LIPS...Mmmmmmm... I think I'm in LOVE!!

I remember when i first layed eyes on these glosses I couldn't stop laughing. Got to give it to Urban Decay for their marketing strategy. Having a sexy half naked man literally at your finger tips is the best thing ever invented! They come in 8 beautiful shades to choose from. I think this also makes a great gift for a friends bachelorette party. Imagine being out at dinner with your girlfriends! What a conversation starter!!

Besides Angelina's Leg, these are other looks I loved on the Red Carpet!

You have to give it to Angelina for stealing the show during the Oscars w/ her perfectly toned legs (or should i say LEG? lol ) to compliment that high split in her stunning dress! We couldn't keep our eyes off that leg but if you did get a chance to look at her face, her makeup was stunning! I love when she gives us that ultra glam look on the red carpet. Sultry eyes and red lips! Can we all just wake up w/ this makeup look? LOL I wouldn't mind seeing her rock this look more often. Don't you guys agree?


Another show stopper for the night was Miley Cyrus. The media said that this look kind of aged her, but i totally disagree. I think it is such a beautiful sophisticated look. If looking "older" means looking that glamorous, i wouldn't mind at all!!



JLO JLO JLO!! What can i say? She looked more than just amazing! With that jaw dropping dress she made a wise decision and went very light and natural with her makeup.


Milla Jovovich looked stunning with rich matte red lips that contrasted her one-shoulder white gown. The actress wore a waved side-parted bob while her eye makeup was kept soft and tame with rosy blush matching the lipstick. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!
