Working On The Upper West Side On Saturday Afternoon

 

 

img_5201It  was a great work day for me today. Anytime I get a call from my clients to come to their home in New York to get them hair & makeup ready for their events it’s always a glam time. Plus, it was a beautiful day in New York that I could have stayed in the city all day.

My client Kristi is someone that I met on set a few years ago.  We hit it off instantly, she is such a fun girl and is very easy to work with.

Kristi is attending the EV 100 Gala at the Essex House. It’s a big event for the Estonian community and Kristi wanted to look like a princess so she called me to come to her home on the Upper East Side to do her hair and makeup. I find that I do more in-home services for makeup in New York then I do in Connecticut.

Grabbing a bite to eat at The Ribbon before heading up to Kristi. This is where I met my my friends Ken Pao & Fady. Ken is a photographer and Fady Malki is a hairstylist. Can’t wait to do some great work with them this spring/summer.

What Activated Charcoal Exfoliating Face Scrub Do You Use

img_3585

So how do I keep my skin flawless and oil-free? It’s all about using the correct skincare product for your skin. Activated charcoal is a great item for someone with oily skin. I just started using DERMA E Purifying Daily Detox Scrub to exfoliate my face with. I can already see a difference and my face not being oily as fast. I feel like my face is matte longer than usual. So this is a good sign that DERMA E is working for me. It’s a natural exfoliate that is living me with a fresh, healthy, and radiance glowing complexion.

What exfoliating do you like to use on your face?
