Get the Face: Day or Night Inspired Makeup

Beauty | March 12, 2014

I like my face looking oil-free but also glow-y (in the right spots!). After years of trial and error with makeup brands that I loved or hated, I finally figured out how to achieve my perfect look. And guess what? What happens in the bathroom mirror doesn’t stay there because I’m sharing my secret. Read on..

Want a look that you can take from day to night without having to re-apply over and over again?! I get asked tons of questions about my makeup routine and decided today I’ll share a closer look at one of my go-to favs (it’s …

Jewel & Gem Tones Inspired Makeup

Beauty | January 20, 2014

Every time I have an audition or hosting gig I’ve noticed they always ask me to wear jewel/gem tone colors on camera. Oohhhh kay. I obviously prefer my leopard print over everything so I’m always offended (kidding).

Think shades of green, purple, and blue (hence the term jewel/gem tones). I decided to take this trend and re-invent it into my beauty life. I get bored with my makeup easily so I happily decided to give this a try. If you’re also kind of over your makeup style- try this out for your next look. I experimented with blue eye-liner for …

Hair Product Review: It’s A 10

Beauty | January 15, 2014

Everyone and their mom knows I am obsazzed with hair. What! It’s my favorite accessory! It’s one of the first things I notice in people sometimes, and to me I feel like your hairstyle can really make or break an outfit. In other words, if my hair looks good- my outfit looks good too.

Simple beauty solutions don’t come easy. The biggest advice …

-Outfit Details-
Sweater Dress: Target (comes in more colors) wearing size L
Necklace: The Oxford Trunk (sold out)
Hat: Nordstrom (old)— shop similar
Boots: Forever 21 (also comes in black)
Bag: H&M
I obviously can not get enough of over-sized sweaters this season. This is the second sweater dress I found at Target, and guess what? It’s made for PLUS-SIZES! I’m 5’2” so I got an L  to make it look like a dress and I love it so much.  If I got a small, I think it wouldn’t fit as nicely. Over-sized anything is always better (in my opinion). …

Beauty | January 2, 2014

Happy New Year! I am currently in the plane headed to Florida to host the Kurdish Youth Festival this weekend. Can’t wait to meet some of you there! I hope you all had a fantastic New Years Eve celebration (I sure did!). I was looking through some of my 2013 selfies and decided to share my favorite lipsticks of 2013 that are definitely sticking around this year.

If you want your lips to look smooth and look “perfect” with your lipstick on, it’s all about the prep! Every night before bed, I always apply a deep moisturizing lip balm sleep …
