The sexy and sassy stylist (I just love alliteration) and fellow PRO blogger, Amy Salinger asked me to be a guest for her Fab in Five video. Amy has a slew of great videos on youtube and her website/blog is amazing. Click here to subscribe to Amy’s videos. Check it out for stylish yet practical tips. I had a blast doing this video and am planning on doing more how-to videos this month.
NARS Multiple Creme Duo ($45) or Nars Blush/Bronzer Shadow Duo ($37) - A must have in my makeup kit.
Avon’s Mark Cosmetics has some great blush and bronzers at a great price ($6) I use After Glo everyday for a great peachy blush and Bronze Glo and Golden Glo work well as a bronzer.
Technique: Apply bronzer in a big “c” around your eyes brushing on and under your cheekbone and lightly over your eyes on the temples. Add blush on the apples of your cheeks for a healthy glow.
Don’t forget to tap off excess powder on brush before applying and use the brush to blend once the powder has been dispersed on cheek. When in doubt, blend and check your makeup in natural light.
Stila Kitten Eyeshadow - another staple in my makeup kit
Technique: Apply with brush or finger all over lid. Add to inside corner for extra “oomph”
Prestige Lip Liner in Cameo or in Natural. Can find in drugstores.
Technique: Apply neutral lip liner all over the lip as a lip primer to add longevity to any gloss.
Marc Anthony Strictly Curls - I picked this up at Duane Reade and was super impressed with the product. It is great on curly hair and I also found that it works well on slightly wavy hair like mine to create a “beachy wave” look.
Technique: Work product into hands and apply lightly to curls.
Salon Grafix Spray Powder Shampoo- Skip the pricey powder shampoos and get the same results.
Technique: Hold can 6-8 inches away from hair and spray toward the root of the hair. Spray in sections where you need lift or want to absorb oil. Best to do little at a time, don’t spray your entire head like Amy does in the video!
