No more “MASKNE”

Watch my TV Segment on Fresh Living to get all the tips!

At this point it looks like wearing Masks everywhere we go is the new norm, and as we are just getting used to it, we now have to deal with those pesky skin issues like “maskne”, (acne caused by wearing a mask). So what can we do about it? Incorporate some new things into our beauty routines:

My Dermatician Anti-Microbial Skin Mist – $28

First off, let’s talk germs, bacteria and viruses! Yuck, but guess what? They thrive under your mask…perfect humid environment to run amuck and cause skin issues. Which brings me to and their NEW Anti-Microbial Skin Mist. This hypochlorous acid formulation kills germs and viruses on your skin, safely! Totally safe to spray on your face, your kids, your pets (yes, spray your pets paws to eliminate unwanted odor and bacteria which will end up on your bed if you have a dog like mine who refuses to sleep anywhere but on my pillow.) I keep a bottle in my purse so when I’m out and about in public spaces, I know I can safely eliminate any bacteria and viruses which may have landed on my skin. This helps prevent those nasty acne flare ups too! Way better than trying to slather hand sanitizer on your face! (BTW- Don’t ever do that! Sooo bad for your skin and not to mention, it stings like a beast!) So head over to and grab your bottle for $28.

Wearing more makeup on your mask than your face? Time to switch brands!

This next issue is for all you makeup lovers out there, like me. We refuse to stop wearing our makeup just because we have to wear a mask. However, it’s pretty nasty when you take your mask off and it has more makeup on it than your face! So here are some tips you can incorporate to keep that makeup on your face and not on your mask:

Switching your foundation to Covergirl’s OutLast All Day Wear Stay Fabulous foundation. This liquid formula goes on super smooth and sets to a beautiful matte finish that stays put! It is transfer resistant and great for mask wearers.

Covergirl also has a line of Outlast Liquid Lipsticks which provide intense color with maximum staying power! No worry about this lipstick rubbing off!

CoverGirl Outlast Foundation and Liquid Lipsticks:

You can also add use a makeup setting spray, like Skindinavia’s Bridal Finishing Mist. I’ve been using this formula for years on my clients because it:

  • Prevents color shifting and fading
  • Keeps makeup in place all day
  • Works up to 16 hours
  • Oil-free
  • Paraben-free and hypoallergenic
  • And like all Skindinavia products, vegan and cruelty-free

Lastly, oil blotting papers are a huge help to remove any surface oils and/or makeup sitting on top of the skin. Don’t have any? No worries! Grab a kleenex and separate the layers of tissue so you have just one. Use it to spot treat excess oil and you’re ready to wear your mask without worry of makeup rubbing off!

Fall Beauty Finds!

Rich Moisturizer, Superhero Cosmetics & the first FDA-Cleared Transparent Face Mask!

Great skin is always #1 on my list, however I don’t always have hundreds of dollars to spend on skincare.  I have LOVED the OLAY Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream Face Moisturizer. As we enter the dry, fall and winter months here in Utah, our skin needs a potent moisturizer. This one is great because it is non-comedogenic and we can wear our masks over it without fear of getting “Maskne”.  Win!! 

Another great reason to switch to OLAY is that during the month of September they will donate $250 for every limited-edition Camo print jar sold on to SWAN – Service Women’s Action Network- an organization that supports, connects and advocates for servicewomen.  LOVE!

When I saw that Revlon launched a limited-edition Wonder Woman 1984 collection, I totally geeked out!  Normally in September we are headed to FANX to celebrate our beloved superheroes. Since the pandemic has ruined that for us we can at least get our “Superhero Fix” with this beautiful collection featuring the iconic Wonder Woman logo. My fave is the Ultra HD Matte Lip Mousse, in Scorpion Red, it will have you feeling “powerful” all day!

Lastly, I get soooo sad when I have to put a mask over my beautiful red lips, and expertly sculpted cheekbones, that I scoured the internet for a fix, and boy did I find it!!  The first ever, FDA-cleared Transparent Face Mask!  YES!!  Not only can everyone see your beautiful face, but this mask is so much more comfortable and breathable!  It won’t fog up, and it provides the protection we need during this pandemic.  So go sport that bold lip and give Covid the middle finger!

Contouring Tutorial

Alright guys. Contouring doesn’t mean spending loads of time drawing swirly floral designs all over your face. (seriously YouTubers, just stop.) The art of contouring is all about manipulating light and shadow. Creating depth with darker shades of makeup can help to define certain features. Want those chiseled cheekbones? Swipe a dark contour color from the ear to the center of the cheek and blend, blend, blend!

In this video I give you the basic contour of the face. Hope this helps ya’ll!

Valentine’s Looks on ABC 4!

I had so much fun playing with makeup back on my favorite show, Good Things Utah! In this segment I focused on how you can take your Day-Makeup to Date Night-Makeup with just a few steps.

Let’s talk Lashes!
Lashes can make the biggest difference in your makeup look. Sometimes they can be intimidating, but trust me, they are worth it! My favorite go-to lashes are by Kiss! You can grab them at Walmart or any drugstore. While you’re there, grab the Kiss Aloe Lash Glue in Black. It’s an easy-to-use glue that is infused with aloe and is gentle on your natural lashes.

Tween Beauty
Moving on to my baby girl, Lillybug, who joined me on set today to model how tweens can sport a fresh Valentine’s Look too! Using the NEW Love You First Line of Cosmetics from RealHer Makeup, just launched at Target! Safe, clean makeup with a Positive Marketing Message! Win-Win!

Using the Real Her – Define Your Own Beautiful Palette we dove into the black to give viewers a tutorial on how you can add some intensity to your eye makeup!

RED Lippy
We closed the show by sporting red lips using the Real Her “I’m Fabulous” Kit. Such a great kit! It has a liner, liquid matte lipstick & my fave, the gloss!

Hooded Eyelid Video Tutorial

The Hooded Lid – Not Anymore!

One of my biggest concerns when it comes to the eyes is the Hooded Eyelid! Such a pet peeve. It makes me look tired, angry, or both! Doesn’t matter how much sleep I get, I wake up with my eyes feeling heavy and I have to constantly lift my brows up in order to properly see. LOL!

So what can those of us who have been genetically gifted these heavy lids do about it? Well, there is a surgical option for those that are having complications with being able to see clearly ( I believe this surgery will be in my future). It’s called Blepharplasty. You can look into if you wish, but I’m not here to talk about that route today.

Today I’ve got some quick tips on how you can minimize the appearance of your dreaded hooded lid!

SOS Winter! Skincare Must Haves

Winter is approaching – the days are getting shorter, the nights longer and the thermometer starts showing negative. The weather is no more a friend, but a frenemy. It’s cozy at home with a blanket and a cup of tea, but once outside our skin screams! It’s time to keep a sweater or fleece blanket at hand – and switch up your cosmetic drawer with something more substantial.

SOS Winter! In the begging of winter, the skin needs different care solutions and formulations other than in summer, since the humidity in heated rooms is significantly lower. This leads to dry, dehydrated and sensitive skin. But why? The so-called hydro-lipid layer of the skin, which acts as a natural protective shield, gets out of balance due to the lack of moisture. But also the temperature shift from brooding heat in the summer to chilling cold in the winter is a great challenge for our skin. The self-protecting functions of the skin decrease and it dries out, as the natural moisture in the skin evaporates faster. As soon as the temperature drops below 8 ° C, the organism restricts the skin’s own production of sebum. The circulation also subsides in many parts of the body, causing the pores to contract in order to retain the heat in the body. The result is dry, flaky skin as well as irritation and redness.

What products and ingredients to use then? Hyaluronic acid works best in different chain lengths so that it penetrates the skin at different depths and cushions superficial and deeper wrinkles and wrinkles. Oils, especially those containing argan extract, jojoba, almond or macadamia nut oil, are particularly suitable for the needs of dry, brittle and powerless skin. The vitamins contained in them deeply nourish, strengthen the lipid barrier and thus prevent moisture loss.

For sensitive skin, facial masks are a go-to! They complement your daily skincare routine and have a soothing effect. Use once or twice a week, same goes for a scrub. Since the skin tends to dry in winter, it cannot renew itself sufficiently compared to well-moisturized skin. Experts also recommend using the power of essential oils to give the skin extra nutrients.

Body oils are a fantastic pampering treatment when they are applied directly to moist skin after showering or bathing and are rubbed in gently. This stimulates the blood circulation and gives the skin an “intensive protection” against moisture loss.

Just as important as facial and body care is the care of the hands. They particularly suffer in the winter months, as they cannot produce their own skin fat. Similar to the body lotion, the hands should be spoiled with a richer cream. In the evening apply this thick and cover cotton gloves and wake up in the morning with soft hands.

What is often forgotten, is the intensive hair care in the cold season. From the summer months, the hair is often strained by the sunlight as well as by chlorine and salt water. Nurturing shampoo, a deep conditioning treatment for the hair and scalp should be applied regularly to ensure the great look of your hair.
