While I am asked wardrobing questions more than any others, once I began appearing regularly on television, women starting asking me about makeup, and how to look their best every day. I am really fortunate in my job to learn about all of the latest products on the market, and this weekend is one of my favorite. Beauty Live at Galleria Dallas brings in all of the top names in beauty, and it offers women a chance to spring clean their look with free beauty stops, giveaways and great events!
I have a few ‘must have’ products that I’ve been working with that make my busy life possible.
First, television can really wash you out, so I need my skin to look its best. I always start with a great moisturizer. Currently, I’m loving the oil free moisturizer by Peter Thomas Roth.
Next, a great primer makes ALL the difference, regardless of what foundation you use. I love the Photofinish Luminizing Primer by Smashbox. It does a great job of evening out your skin texture before the foundation goes on and it gives skin a great luminosity.
One of the best products a woman can find is a perfect bronzer. I use the “Golden Light” bronzer by Bobbi Brown almost every day. It gives the perfect amount of glow without adding shimmer.
Color makes all the difference, and I love to experiment! The great Aqua Eyes eyeliners from Makeup Forever are a huge favorite with beauty editors, and I can see why! They are so long wearing, and you just need to smudge a little along your upper lash line to create a great smoky eye!
I think a lot of women struggle to find the right lip liner. First, you need to find a great basic that works with many lip colors. I’m a big fan of MAC’s “Whirl.” It’s a great color that is so versatile. And, for every woman, a great red lipstick is the little black dress of the makeup bag. It should be a go to item you can put on to feel special any day. I LOVE Rebel Red by MAC. It is a great color with a super moisturizing feel.
I think every woman should find a dry shampoo she likes. I know my hair looks better on the second or third day, and I know I’m not alone there. Oscar Blandi makes a great dry shampoo, and so does Bumble and Bumble. They make great time saving tools to extend your style even further, and what busy woman doesn’t need more time!
I hope you’ll ALL make time to join me at Beauty Live this weekend, March 2-3, at Galleria Dallas. It’s the ultimate beauty weekend, and I’m excited to host the stage both days. See you there!
