Perfect Skin

Perfect Skin

Since I was 15, I have always been in the search of having a perfect skin. My goal has been that on a daily basis I don’t have to wear a heavy layer of makeup. Or better yet, If I could bypass wearing any foundation or BB cream at all. A few weeks ago, I met Dr. Anna Sottile from the Aesthetic  Medicine Institute of Miami. And the first thing that she brought me in for, was a consultation. In my mind, I went in with the idea of getting maybe some injectables (Botox and such). My main idea was to remove some of the lines and plump some areas that turning 39 years old has given me.

This post is a sponsored #ad for Olay, all opinions are my own. #Olay #Retinol24

Smoother Skin with Olay Retinol24
A few weeks ago, I introduced to my night skin care routine Olay Retinol 24. If you know me, you know that I take really good care of my skin. I am always in the search for new products to try and add to my daily regimen. Olay sent me their new Olay Regenerist Retinol24 line, this included the night Moisturizer, the night Eye Cream and the night Serum. At first glance, I love that the products are fragrance-free and have a non-greasy feel. Olay Retinol24, delivers 24-hour hydration thru out your day and works with your skin to give you brighter and smoother skin, without the typical irritation that other retinols would.

How-to Dye Clip-On Bangs

This shop has been compensated by Schwarzkopf. #FashionColorExpert #sponsored

For Fall, I shied away from having my super bright ombre hair and went ahead and dyed my hair a darker tone. But after coloring my hair, I also wanted to do a little more of a change and have bangs without having to cut my hair. I have been loving that french girl fringe look, so I went for it. So I partnered up with Schwarzkopf Color Ultime to show you How-to Dye Clip-On Bangs. 

Schwarzkopf Color Ultime comes in a variety of fashion shades. I picked a Magnificent Blacks 1.1 in Raven Black, to match my hair base line color. I started with a medium color natural hair Clip-On bangs (see below the before and after), and ended up with a color true to the box color shown. My hair came-out really shiny and matching my real hair.

And if you need some hair inspo check it out on social using the hashtag #FashionColorExpert or you can see it here too!

Materials needed for this How-To Dye Clip-On Bangs

One Box of Schwarzkopf Color Ultime 1.1 in Raven Black (Available at Walmart, this is where I bought mine) | Natural Hair Crown Clip-on Bangs (Hence on natural don’t use synthetic blends) | Parchment paper or a plastic bag surface to work on


1. First cover the working area with parchment paper or a plastic bag. Also protect your hands using the plastic gloves included in the color box.

2. Unscrew the lid of the Application bottle that has the Developer lotion and add the full tube of the Color Cream. Close the applicator bottle and shake vigorously until well blended.

3. Take your natural hair clip-on bangs, and start adding the color dye, in stripes, massaging thru the hair and make sure all strands are covered. you may also want to flip the bags and add some color on the behind area where the clips are. You won’t use all the product in the bottle, just enough to cover all.

4. Let it sit for 40 minutes.

5. Wash off with plenty of running cold water. I like to do a quick wash with a little bit of shampoo and finish off using a little bit of the Conditioning Treatment provided with the box, to make it extra shiny.

6. Lay flat on a dark towel and let it air dry. After completely dry you can style as usual and clip-on.

Check out below to see the results and how I styled my hair to achieve the french girl look!

Keep that Summer Glow

So now that Summer is over, it is time to start thinking on how to keep that Summer Glow going. Today, I’m sharing a few of my favorite beauty products, that I am currently using. To always look bronzed tanned and not ashy. I keep my routine for this very simple and just add a golden bronzer and coral tones blush to my face and cheeks, a little eyeshadow in earthy tones and some body makeup on my arms and legs. To tell you the truth, I was also using them thru out the summer months, as I can’t get sun tanned because I am currently doing lase hair removal sessions (more about that here).

VII Code Oxygen Eye MaskThis post is in collaboration and sponsored by VIIcode.

You know, I am one of those people. The ones that works long nights and don’t slept enough. And you can see how that lack of rest shows up immediately, and I automatically turn into a raccoon. The skin under my eyes feels dry and turns purple-ish and small fine lines start showing up. To avoid looking like this, I am always trying out new products for my under eyes to make them look refreshed. In the past few weeks, I got to try out the VIIcode O2M Oxygen Eye Mask. These are a under the eye pads treatment masks.  You wear them overnight (you can have them on for 8 hours) while you sleep you just rejuvenate. Making it different from other sheet masks, that usually are just on for few minutes.
