My Night time Skincare Routine

Since I did a blog post and video on my morning skincare routine, I thought it was only fair and fitting to do a video and blog post on my nightly skincare ritual and to again list the products I use that work very well. Most of the products I talk about in this post and in my last one, I’ve done reviews and write ups on, some awhile ago which means they work THAT well for me and that I still really love them.

If you use a product or have a different way of using skincare, by all means, do what works best for you.

My Morning Skincare Routine

I get compliments on my skin all the time and one of my nicknames is Snow White cause of my fair skin, black hair, and red lips. I recently met a very sweet woman walking near me in the mall and we chatted about our tattoos, how pushy some skin care vendors are and more. This sweet lady complimented me on my skin and look so I decided to share my skin care routine, Here is how I do my skincare in the morning. I decided to do a video on my youtube channel besides writing and posting here because I switch up my morning routine. 

The products that I use are just suggestions to inspire you and what works can possibly work for you since these products and brands work for me. I hope this inspires you and enjoy.

The Best Anti-Aging Product

FullSizeRender (4)

There are so many fabulous skin care brands and products out on the market but the BEST Anti-Aging Product is a fabulous big pair of sunglasses! I wear sun glasses pretty much every day and even when I go out to work or errands and it’s cloudy, I keep and extra pair of sunglasses in my glove box in case the sun comes out. As you all know,  I live in Southern California and the light is often bright and blinding a lot and my eyes are sensitive in the sun and don’t want wrinkles anywhere, especially around my eyes that can cause “crows feet,” which I never plan on having so I never leave home without my sexy shades plus a sun glass case to keep them clean and not scratched.

   IMG_1991There are so many styles out there depending on your look or mood but I definitely recommend the  larger framed sunglasses so they cover up your sensitive eyes and lower the risk of wrinkles.

This advice works for both men and women. Even my  pinup cat eye glasses protect me eyes.

Steampunk Burlesque Photo Shoot (Part 2)

Here is Part 2 of my sexy steampunk burlesque photo shoot with Jordan Giuliani. In this part 2 photoshoot, I was photographed on a couch in many different sexy poses and instead of my pencil skirt from part 1 of this shoot, I wore my ruffled burlesque performance shorts with of course my high high heels. I love part 2 of this shoot! ENJOY!!!!

The Dark Side of Lily

  You all saw my very spooky and awesome post titled, “Pretty Ghouls,” where my girl Sandy made me a dark Princess Lily ring from the movie, “Legend,” and she put a fabulous idea in my head to do an interpretation of the makeup she wore when the character “Darkness,” aka Tim Curry changes her from the innocent princess Lily to the dark goth-like princess. Here are some photos of me channeling the darkness of Lily. This makeup was a lot of fun to do. I also included a makeup tutorial of how I created this look with all the products I used. Enjoy and thank you again Sandy!
