I got a chance to work with the new Covergirl model, America's Next Top Model winner, Krista White. My friend hairstylist Bestsey Meade and I were prepping Krista for special private event at the head quarters of Covergirl cosmetics.

We started our day at 7am at the Westin hotel so we would have plenty of time to get her hair and makeup done before her limo came to get her. Bestsey started by getting her hair smooth and shiny with a flat iron and then swooped her hair over into an elegant side ponytail. She added soft curls to the end of her hair, that cascaded over her shoulder, for texture and sophistication.

Next was my turn.....


Beauty Questions

Beauty question: "Wanna know what your favorite eye cream is for early thirties. hint hint... I'm looking for a new one!"- from Lindsey in Wisconsin.

Answer: You would think that the first signs of fine lines and wrinkles that you see are due to getting older, but it is usually caused by the on-going lack of hydration. Since your body is mainly made up of water, it can really take a toll on your skin. So the earlier you take care of your skin, especially around the delicate eye area, the fewer wrinkles you will have as you get older. Kind of like the saying goes..."it is easier to prevent than correct."

There are a lot of eye creams on the market that I like. A great one to start with should have multiple benefits other than just hydrating skin , like Jan Marini Age Intervention Eye Cream, and include anti-aging and firming benefits as well.

Be careful not to apply too much. You only need a little. The warmth from your body will cause the product to automotically slide inward towards the rest of your eye area so be sure to apply the cream on the orbital bone, which is the edge of the eye socket, so it won't get inside your eye by mistake.


MY FAVORITE THINGS

Fall has always been my favorite time of the year because of the great fashion! The best way to look good in your clothes is by starting with great underwear. So my favorite thing this month is the Body By Victoria push up bra. It gives your bust the lift that you want but is smooth and seamless so you look even better in your clothes!

Not sure if you know your correct bra size? No problem! Victoria's Secret has sales people that know how to measure you properly so you get the right size and fit you need.

Here is a little bra trivia! The proper way to put on a bra is to lean forward so your bust falls evenly into the cups, snap the clasps shut, then sit up and adjust the straps as needed. Keep in mind that you usually wear your bra daily. So to ensure that you are getting proper support replace your bras every 6 months because fabric and elastic can become worn out.
