Hair:
I visit my hair stylist on a weekly basis as gone are the days that I manage it myself. However, for daily maintenance, the two hair products that I keep in my arsenal are Design Essentials SLEEK Edge Control –a moisturizing firm hold smoothing gel that smoothes edges creating sleek styles and taming unruly hair; and Reflections Liquid Shine – adds luster and natural sheen to dull, dry, chemically damaged hair. It never weighs hair down and eliminates frizzy, flyaway hair.

Makeup:
I am a MAC girly all day long! Most days I flaunt au natural freckle face with MAC Prep and Prime Lip – a colour-free base to wear under lipstick and adds light moisture, smoothes and refines the lips; and Wildly Lush Plushglass – sheer lip colour with a pearlized high-shine gloss finish that contains vitamin E for added environmental protection. If I am running to an important meeting, a few items in my arsenal include Prep + Prime mascara, False Lashes Mascara, Pro Longwear Concealer, Brow Set, Fast Response Eye Cream, Mineralize Blush, Mineralize Skinfinish, Painterly Paint Pot and varying eye shadow colors.

And if I am headed to a black-tie affair, my arsenal is my MAC make-up artist!

Skin care:
Well, MAC wins again! My skin care arsenal consists of MAC Cremewash and Studio Moisture Cream.

Nails:
For 20 years, I had acrylic overlay on my nails. However, I am excited to say that my nails are now au natural! I have THE BEST nail technician who believes in keeping the nails healthy, so after soaking off the acrylic my nails are strong, healthy and smooth! I LOVE OPI, Essie and Gelish Gel Polish.

Fragrance:
My two FAV fragrances are Tory Burch (my husband’s FAV) and CoCo Chanel’s Mademoiselle.

Beauty Indulgence:
I love a hot stone massage infused with a deep tissue massage from my favorite spas.
