Kimberly Merilus: Designer/Writer/Blogger

Kimberly is the owner of the graphic design house, DesignHer Goods, the e-journal, From A Wildflower and beauty and lifestyle blog KimberlyLuxe. She's an island girl, living in Florida pursuing her passion of design + info-sharing and when she's not doing any of the above she's spending time with her family and listening to island music all while sipping on Chamomile tea with 3 scoops of sugar. Let’s see what’s inside Kimberly’s Ultimate Beauty Arsenal!

Hair: APHOGEE Hair Care Line (for its ability to repair damaged tresses), TRESemmé Naturals Nourishing Moisture Conditioner (for it's light-weight moisturizing ability), CANTU SHEA BUTTER Leave-In Conditioner (for it's ability to leave hair soft yet gently defined), Coconut Oil (for it's ability to not leave residue behind), Aloe Vera Juice (for it's ability to add a nutritiously-infused moisturizing experience).

Makeup: MAC Studio Finish SPF 35 Concealer, MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Gold Deposit, MAC Ruby Woo. // These are my go-to makeup products when I want to look somewhat dolled up. MAC's Concealer helps to wake up my eyes, while the Gold Deposit adds just enough bronziness to my cheeks, and Ruby Woo completes just about any of my looks, regardless of how effortless and casual they may be!

Skin care: CLARISONIC Plus // My skincare routine is quite simple being that I have sensitive and dry skin. My Clarisonic is one of the best investments I could have ever made as it buffs my skin beautifully and allows my organic skin care products (like Shea butter, coconut oil, and Aloe Vera juice) to penetrate my skin more effectively! I have truly seen a huge difference in my skin after using the tool on a weekly basis, which is why the Clarisonic is the perfect addition to what I like to call: my Fake-Up Bag!

Nails: ESSIE Van D'Go, OPI Alpine Snow // Essie's Van D'Go is the perfect color for a Miami girl like myself. I love its peachiness against my chocolate brown skin as it gives me such flirty-appeal! OPI's Alpine Snow is another favorite of mine, as it makes for the perfect contrasted color. I prefer OPI when I want an opaque color on my hands + toes, and ESSIE when I want something a little more natural.

Fragrance: GUCCI Guilty // I'm not a big fragrance wearer but ever since my boyfriend bought me this I've been hooked! It adds a level of sophistication to every encounter!

Beauty Indulgence: The Masters at the Fontaine Bleau Miami Beach. // I love going to the Fontaine Bleau for a Spa Day because their facility is so luxurious and peaceful. I love all of their indoor pools, their fruit + tea areas, and of course, their deep-tissue massages!
