Excited to introduce the new Dior Addict Pumpling Ultra-Gloss! I’m quite the make-up junky so I’m ecstatic to partner up with Dior so I can add some bright color and shine to my lips for a more glam look!

What’s awesome about the new Pumpling Ultra-Gloss is that it has three benefits we should be excited about, ultra-plumping, ultra-shiny and ultra-hydrating!

First, Ultra-plumping benefit gives you +14% of immediate volume, which means it has a hydra-plumping formula that helps retain water to give you a supple, plump shape! Such a good one because we all want plumpier lips! The Ultra-shiny benefit is one that I love because your lips stay glossy and fresh looking all day! The ultra-hydrating benefit gives you a womping 6hours of continuous hydration! So crazy! They stay hydrated as well as smoothed and plumped!

There’s three different light effect to choose from: Sparkling, Iridescent and Watery! Depending on what you’re looking for and what kind of look you’re trying to achieve, there’s so many shades per light effects! I personally love the Sparkling shades, I’m wearing the 765 Ultra Dior. Its sooo pretty and sparkly- perfect for a cocktail party or date night!

Which one’s your favorite? x

Finally, my beauty regimen! Many of you constantly ask about the products I use everyday to wash + moisturize my face as well as my ‘everyday’ make-up products. So here they are!

It’s fairly easy to have great skin to be honest, but I must admit, I wasn’t always good about being consistent with my face routine. I would always have those days when I would get home so late that the last thing I wanted to do was take off my make-up and wash my face, I was lazy. Those little things can really hurt your skin! Of course working out, drinking water and eating healthy make it that much easier to see a difference in your skin.

After a few of those nights where I wouldn’t remove my make-up, I noticed I would break out with a couple of blemishes here and there. My skin is really sensitive therefore not washing my face, eating junk food, or even being stressed out really shows up on my skin. So I made a pledge to myself to always remove my make-up and wash my face no matter how tired I am, every single day – twice a day.

It took me a while to get a really good routine going, but now that I have one, I’m sticking to it and have noticed a major difference. I used to get facials once in a while but was never consistent (again, here we go with consistency, see?), but decided to really make that a top priority now. There should be no if’s, and’s or but’s when it comes to your skin. We splurge on material things we really don’t need, so saving that extra money every month for a facial is far more important. I now get one hour facials every 3 weeks and my skin loves me for it. I also try to stick to the same products as much as I can so that my skin doesn’t react in a negative way to something new.

Another big part of having great skin for me is working out. I’ve never been much of a fitness girl to be honest, but as I’m getting older I’ve realized how important it is to be healthy with working out + eating healthy. This year I’ve teamed up with one of my friends to train me. We work out 3-4 times a week and focus on upper body, abs and legs the most. This is probably one of the most obvious things that I’ve noticed has helped my skin dramatically. My skin looks so great, blemish free when I work out 3-4 a week, it’s crazy. It feels pure and makes my skin have an amazing glow too. When I don’t workout, I start breaking out so I try to be consistent with the gym but it’s hard when I travel a lot, my routine gets all messed up.

So, get into a groove and work out, not only will you feel and look great (hello abs!) but your skin will be radiant!

Drinking water is the number ONE thing we should be consistent with. Your skin and body will thank you later. It really makes all the difference.

My routine is fairly simple in this order:

TWICE A WEEK:

So there you have it, my top products I use on a daily basis. I don’t have perfect skin, but the more consistent I am with drinking water, working out and (trying!) to stay away from sweet pastries, the prettier my skin will look. Stick to a routine and pledge to yourself that your skin will come first. Your skin is definitely YOUR BEST ACCESSORY so take care of it. Splurge on the right products and facials instead of heels you really don’t need.

Holiday Red.

I’ve been feeling a little bold lately and started wearing red lipstick these last few days… maybe it’s because it makes me feel festive? Regardless, I love that it easily transforms your look to a more glam/bad ass look.

I’ve been diggin’ wearing red lipstick with just mascara… skipping the liner for a more fresh face look! Definitely trying this makeup look again for the holidays. What kind of makeup looks are you into for the holidays? Share!
