Your signature look:
I never leave the house without my hair blow-dried and flat ironed
Your not-so-secret beauty regimen:
salon grade shampoo and conditioner as well as weekly hair masks. And serums! I love serums!
When was the first time you ever wore mascara/lipstick/blush (choose one) and what happened:
I saw my older cousin putting on a bright red lipstick for a new year’s party circa 1998. Putting it on myself was one of the worst mistakes I ever made! Every time I see that picture, it makes me cringe.
Airport security confiscated your makeup bag because you were over in liquids, you would save WHICH product from your makeup bag before letting them toss it out:
Great excuse to shop duty-free! I could never part with my Vichy Aera Teint Pure cream foundation
Worst product you ever bought:
Cheap Revlon flat iron .. never do that!
Best product you ever bought:
L’Oreal Professional Infinium Hair Spray – works great and smells good too!
Your #1 tip for brides:
Pray that something DOES go wrong at the wedding! It’s the misadventures that make for the greatest stories!
