Hello divine eyelashes!

Younique Moodstruck 3D fiber lashes mascara! 

mascara edmascara ed1

The name says it all! A couple of weeks ago one of my patients brought me this mascara to try. Since I am always looking to enhance the look of my lashes, which with age are just becoming shorter and less dense, I’ve decided to give it a try. A little mascara never hurt anyone. Plus I’ve probably tried every mascara brand out there so what’s one more…I’ve been using it ever since and I am addicted to it. I am happy to report that it is the best mascara out there by far!

This proprietary formula has two international patents pending and it is also hypoallergenic which I love, because my eyes tend to get red and irritated during the day because of the dry environment I live in at the moment. It comes only in one shade which saves us time and the decision is simple! If you have short, thin, or even normal eyelashes and you are looking to enhance the look of your eyes with incredibly long and beautiful lashes, I think this product will not disappoint.mascara face

The application is very simple too! The only thing I do extra I use an eyelash curler before I apply the product, because my eyelashes are naturally straight. I know, lucky me!

My personal tip: Try to move fast, as you don’t want the product to get dry, before you’re finished with the application. And you can always apply just one coat and see if you are happy with the results.

Look for the holidays/Indian accents

Since arriving in Mexico, I’ve fallen in love with their art and their ability to mix bright colors in such interesting ways! One of my friends has recently started a new very cool business here in Mexico, called Origen Local, where she is promoting hand made, original and artisanal products, from all over the world.

Just a couple of weeks ago, she gifted me this hand made clutch from India, made with original materials and decorated with old Indian coins. How cool!

Here, I was headed to a dinner party and I chose to wear this Zara Basic jumpsuit my sister gave me. I am obsessed with it and with the idea of wearing a jumper. It’s as easy as wearing a dress…put it on, zip it up, match a pair of shoes to it and that’s it. And I was so excited that my new purse went perfectly with it too!

My cell phone was the only thing handy before I headed out, so the quality of the pictures is not great.

Thanks Daniella for my wonderful gift!

I’m all about healthy skin…

One of my go to looks I’ve created with the makeup products I wrote about in my previous post. Easy! In 20 minutes I was ready to go! I love makeup and I love it even more when it’s easy to use and it is skin and environmental friendly.

Here are my favorite brands I wrote about, which are not going to damage your skin if you love wearing makeup.

1. Colorscience  2. Physician’s Formula 3. GS/Gerda Spillmann

Save time and your hair!

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure to be invited at the InStyler® promotional event in Mexico City. Besides meeting very interesting people I did learn about the Wonders an InStyler® can do for me at home.

Big revelation! As I travel frequently, I always find myself carrying my curling iron, or the flattening iron with me. And I never have what I need, as I can’t travel with both. So, no more restrictions for me. One tool will do it all and how exciting is that!

The InStyler® rotating hot iron is a totally new styling and straightening tool. So it’s all in one. It’s everything you’ve ever needed a hair tool to perform, having straight, or curly hair, or the unruly, puffy hair like mine. Not to mention that it does the work in less than half time!

The InStyler® rotating hot iron’s gentle heat in conjunction with the rotating motion of the polishing cylinder literally polishes your hair strands individually so it doesn’t need extreme heat to get amazing results. This way your hair will also be healthier, as you’ll not overheat it each time you’ll try to style it!

Here with the one and only Dean Banowetz, The Hollywood Hairguy, from Dancing with the Stars and X Factor, and my dear friends Daniella and Rodrigo Estrada, from Agua y Sal Cebicheria, Mexico City.
