So I have been back in Paris for a week now. I haven’t updated the blog in a while because I have been traveling overtime. I will be updating the blog soon with posts from all my stories in the states and abroad! I am finally having sometime to sit down and write! As I have been on the go I really wanted to share my beauty tips with you guys from the past few months. I have been in different temperatures and climates and thanks to my friends at NARS I have been able to keep my appearance up with little effort.

The new NARS Spring Colour Collection is perfect for me and the girl on the go because it takes you from day to night effortlessly and is easy to update on the go!
Sometimes I don’t feel like getting fully ready. I just cut my hair into the real deal french girl bob and it’s so much easier to get ready and feel beautiful in a natural state. So normally I feel the same about my makeup. I don’t want to spend tons of time getting ready anymore.
I first really start with a base, I use concealer obviously for underneath my eyes and my spot marks. I am so excited about NARS new Velvet Matte Skin Tint SPF 30/PA +++, it’s an alternative foundation that brings you a matte complexion and basically it feels like mousse on your face and it’s really easy to apply and stay on. I don’t like using powder and with this product you really don’t need it! I just contour and use bronzer and a dab of blush and pretty much go. I prefer using tint products because I don’t really love wearing too much makeup all day long.
For meeting and coffee day dates that could run into the night I like to spruce it up a bit by wearing a bit of color! I love wearing the new NARS Spring Lipstick in Banned Red. The spring lipsticks are actually a bit of a different texture than other NARS goodies, it glides on light with a bit of gloss and shine and the more you apply the darker and stronger the look.
Most of the time when I go out for the day, I am out. I will shower at the gym after my workouts and sometimes change outfits and move to my next occasion. With just 3 or 4 products I can switch very fast! With a pop of lipstick and a little eyes shadow, I like to apply dark colors such as the NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow Cressida as eyeliner because I don’t wear much eyeshadow and I tend to lean towards more natural tones. It’s the perfect add of drama for a night out in Paris or dropping by a dinner.
I am so happy to be back in Paris at this time, it’s quite cold, but it’s a very reflective time of the year to recreate yourself and your ideas. I feel at this time of the year you can change your mind and make the next months of Spring and Summer amazing. We feel Spring is right around the corner and it’s the best time to reinvent yourself and your creativity.
