Beautiful Skin from the Inside Out and the Outside In post image

There is nothing more attractive, desired, or desirable than gorgeous skin. Fortunately, attaining this coveted asset isn’t as elusive as you think.

The saying you are what you eat is especially true when it comes to attaining a coveted clear complexion; what goes in plays a huge role in what radiates out. When I tweak my diet, the first thing I notice is a dramatic improvement in my skin. You don’t need to do a major overall and cut out everything you love as long as you also make an effort to incorporate some skin super foods into your diet.

Coming in second to what you eat is the products you use. I have been writing about beauty for five years now and in that time I have experienced many ups and downs in regards to my skin. I have also had the opportunity to try out hundreds of products.

Read on for the best foods to eat and products to use for a clear, luminous complexion. [Click here to keep reading...]

ANM Beauty Review: Miracle Skin Transformer Treat & Conceal post image

Every so often a beauty product will come along that blows you away and has you wondering how you ever could have lived without it. Miracle Skin Transformer Treat & Conceal was that product for me and if gorgeous, flawless skin is what you’re after, it will be for you too.

I was ecstatic when I received a sample of this wonder product since I’d been hearing nothing but rave reviews from the beauty sphere for some time but was too lazy to go out and give it a try on my own! I tore the package open and applied just a tab to some blemishes on my chin and on the persistent half moons under my eyes. I was blown away. All traces of imperfection were GONE. My face literally looked like it had been airbrushed.

Pre-Miracle Skin Transformer, I would have to commit about 15 minutes of applying primer then foundation then concealer, then powder to set, then more concealer for greater coverage. And even still, my skin never looked as naturally flawless as it did with just a teeny smidge of this product, and it got the job done in under 30 seconds to boot! [Click here to keep reading...]

Easy Makeup Tricks to Enhance Your Natural Beauty post image

A little while back, I went to an event sponsored by My Fashion Plate and Lancome where I received a complimentary makeover.  They allowed me to chose exactly what I wanted and I decided to keep it clean and simple, not wanting to leave looking like I had a full face of makeup on since I had a bunch of appointments that day.

The finished product was amazing. My skin was clear, even, and luminous. My face looked defined and a little more sensuous. And my lashes were simply to die for, like supersized doesn’t even scratch the surface (no falsies involved!). For the rest of the day, people couldn’t stop gushing about how great I looked (especially my to-die-for lashes!).

I have gotten my makeup done before and every time was left with the same question: “why can’t I ever do my makeup like this?!” Well this time I was prepared and asked tons of questions and diligently watched every single thing that was done. I also followed up with Dotty, the fabulous makeup artist who worked on me and got a list of every product she used.

Rather than hoarding all of these trips and tricks, I’ve decided to share. [Click here to keep reading...]
