I’m a big believer in that you need to focus on good skin care before even thinking about makeup. Here’s how to get my complete look…

Before applying any makeup make sure to cleanse your skin using warm water and Vichy Purete Thermale Foaming Water and then apply Vichy Aqualia Thermal Eye Roll-On Fortifying De-Puffing under and around your eyes – this will help tighten and plump your skin, leaving you looking more luminous and timeless! Then, be sure to apply Vichy Laboratories Aqualia Thermal Serum Fortifying & Soothing 24 hour Hydrating concentrate – This product is absolutely amazing, and smells delicious too! Now it’s time to moisturize with Vichy Aqualia Thermal Light – This is a very fluid water based cream, it does not clog pores and is perfect for sensitive skin. It will all leave your skin perfectly refreshed and velvety-soft. Let all products fully absorb into your skin before putting on your makeup.

In the meantime, SET your hair in a simple, stylish and effortless up-do using Schwarzkopf Got2b 2 Sexy Voluptuous Volume Hairspray – my absolute FAVORITE!

Once your skin is clean and prepped, use Diorskin Nude by Dior in 012 Porcelain Foundation followed by Laura Mercier’s Secret Concealer in Light Beige – both products are moisture rich and perfect for creating a flawless, radiant complexion. Be sure to SET foundation and concealer set with Laura Mercier’s Translucent Secret Camouflage Powder before applying Diorskin Nude Tan Nude Glow Sun Powder in Cinnamon to contour  and warm up the skin with a healthy radiance, followed by NARS Realm of the Senses Blush Palette to play up your cheekbones with a pop of color and shimmer – this palette is the PERFECT mix of NARS Blushes and Highlighting Blush shades.

Use Laura Mercier’s Eye Color in Morning Dew – matte/light neutral pink – to enhance your natural skin tones and make your eyes POP.

Line your lash line with Makeup Forever AQUA pencil in BLACK. And also line the INSIDE of you eyes, both top and bottom with Laura Mercier’s Longwear Creme Eye Pencil in Espresso.

CURL lashes and apply DiorShow Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum to  to double the volume of your lashes and enhance the curl followed by Diorshow WATERPROOF Mascara in Jet Black.

Complete your look by applying Laura Mercier’s Lip Glacé in Pout.
