Spring Into Dewy Skin With A Highlighter


Let It Glow, Let It Glow…Spring is almost here and my clients in Fairfield County can’t wait for it to get here soon enough especially with the beautiful weather we have had in the last two days. Ladies, I’m sure you’re ready for that effortless dewy skin; so how do you achieve that brilliant spring glow you ask? A highlighter…Highlighters help to give the skin a luminous finish and can be purchased in different textures:powders, liquids, and creams. When using a highlighter, I like to apply the highlighters with a damp beauty blender on the apple of the cheeks and along the cheekbones to give that radiant fresh face glow. While I was in Westport, CT doing makeup, a client asked me to select 5 of my favorite highlighters. With so many highlighters to choose from I had to think for a second, because I love them all!

You might recognize from my Instagram post me using Flower Beauty highlighter on The Roots dancers from the NBA All Star Weekend. So instead of 5 here are 10 of my favorite new highlighters that has hit the shelves and hopefully will make their way to your vanity.

Fun Day In NY For NYFW At A NARS Cosmetics Event

In the morning I always start off my day enjoy a nice cup of tea from Donna Karan New York Blend (chamomile, ginger roots, & peppermint). I’ll go sit on the deck and just collect my thoughts and then I’ll have my time with GOD, thanking him for getting me through another day. As you know by now with Lupus, Lyme, & RA, I may look good on the outside but my body thinks I’m about 90yrs old. What I luv about the ladies I’ll be with today they both understand my health issue in they don’t push me to do things are get in there feelings when I can’t do things. Thanks Ilse for my GORG mug, anything NY or NOLA I luv!
