A lot of people don't know this about me but when I was in college studying journalism, I worked in the makeup department at Nordstrom to help pay my tuition. (As a child, I always loved dipping in lipstick and experimenting with eyeliner and spritzing perfume. I remember vividly sneaking into my mom's closet and playing dress up on the regular. After all, she was SO beautiful!) Eventually, I realized I really enjoyed painting my friends faces and actually had a knack for doing a pretty good job.
I was a lousy saleswoman at Chanel, Trish McEvoy, and Lancome in the late 90's, but I adored playing in products! I got to try everything! And this is when I realized, even at 20 years old, that a strict skincare regime was crucial. I started using products with sunscreen, anti-aging properties, and also became discerning about what products really worked. (Having the discount didn't hurt either. I know how expensive it can be to take proper care of your skin!)
To this day, because of my many many years in the makeup chair getting ready for television, I've continued to learn so much from various artists about how to take care of my mug. When I'm not shooting E! News, working on my blog, or being a mom, I get lost in my bathroom trying all of the latest and greatest products.
This past weekend I decided to lock myself into my bedroom and treat myself to a zen spa experience at home. I haven't had time to work out and so getting a good night's sleep is paramount to my health and my peace of mind. The frigid temps this season also take a toll on our skin, so I lit a few candles, put on my classical tunes and went all in!
After a relaxing and soothing night in, I knew I wanted to share all the details of my pampering sesh with you. These are all products I use and genuinely approve. Cheers to you.
Mind, body, soul - and a glowing fresh face forward to the world!
