If I had to pick one beauty product to have in my makeup kit today for the Golden Globes Awards it would have to be L’OREAL Paris Infallible Pro Spray & Set Makeup Extender Setting Spray. After giving my client a glamxurious makeup look I would want her makeup to stay fresh for hours while on the red carpet and during the award show. The setting spray will keep the makeup from smudging and settling into fine lines. With all those paparazzi around who need that nightmare of bad makeup.

It’s always an honor when someone features you in a magazine or on their blog. Being recognized for your talent is always delightful. In the beauty industry where there is so many amazing and talented artists, to be highlighted by a brand means a lot. I met Dana Hill the Founder & CEO of Cocotique while doing makeup at the IBS Show for Absolute NY, a makeup brand who’s makeup I luv using. While at the show Dana and I hit it off right away like two girlfriends. So when Kim Jackson, the Director of Cocotique reached out to me about doing an interview, I was honored. If your a beauty junkie like myself, you must get a subscription of Cocotique monthly beauty box. The ladies always select the best items for you to enjoy.
