unnamed-1.jpg

LISTEN HERE

This girl is everything. You see her, and your jaw hits the floor because she is just so damn beautiful.  Then you get to know her. You see that she has the worlds biggest, brightest heart.  She has been through so much hardship from an abusive relationship (which she openly, bravely shares about), infertility struggles, to overcoming it all with a fairly tale ending of finding her handsome prince and being pregnant with their first child, little angel girl.

Jessica moved to NYC right out of High School to pursue becoming a Top Makeup Artist/Stylist.  She boldly went to a Model "Open Call" and introduced herself to the head booker, but not as a model, a makeup artist.   Her confidence and natural skill led him to let her shadow Pam Anderson's makeup artist, and then the rest is history.

Jess does all the top celebrities hair/makeup/style.  She makes everyone look so naturally beautiful and sexy.  She is fearless, and she never lets one rejection or hard time set her back.  She gives great advice to young influencers about why being authentic and never doing anything just for a paycheck is crucial.  LOVE HER!

This is a Power Couple. Both Vanessa and Miles are huge forces in their own right. Vanessa is an actress (she was "Brittany Hodges" on "The Young and the Restless," plus so many movies, and TV shows). She is is also an incredible jewelry designer. Vanessa comes from a large entertainment family: her dad starred in "My Two Dads," her mother was a Broadway Dancer and her Brother is a hit Songwriter and Producer. Vanessa has talent oozing through her veins. And she is even more beautiful on the inside than outside.

Miles is a staple in Nashville for his Emotional Wellness Retreat Center "Onsite." At "Onsite," he leads people to personal healing. Miles says "Onsite to me more than a therapeutic retreat center, a personal growth center, therapy center, all these things that people can label us, but the truth is, we're a safe place where people can land, relax, take whatever armor they've had on for so long to make themselves feel safe from the world, and just lay it down. We're a place that helps people connect to WHO THEY ARE, so they can go back into the world and connect to other people." WOW. Miles also just launched "Unspoken Podcast" with the incredible Ruthie Lindsey, covering all of these real issues.

Vanessa and Miles are also the parents to a precious child, Maverick, and they are so honest about parenting, marriage, and all the ups and downs that happened in their relationship. They share with me how they keep their marriage strong, and why they don't ever claim to be perfect. This interview is ESSENTIAL if you interested healing yourself, and having healthy relationships.

Camera Ready Makeup Routine in 10 Steps and 10 Minutes.

Camera Ready Makeup Routine in 10 Steps and 10 Minutes.

unnamed-3.jpg
unnamed-1.jpg

Anyone who knows me, knows I HATE GETTING READY. I appreciate great hair and makeup, but man, do I loathe the process of getting “camera ready.”  But for my job of hosting, interviewing, TV, and events, I need to be looking fly on the reg, and I can’t pay a makeup/hair artist each time.  So I have my “Camera Ready Makeup Routine in 10 Steps and 10 Minutes.”  I am DEFINITELY no makeup pro IN THE SLIGHTEST. I barely know anything about makeup honestly. But I know what makes me look great fast, and that’s enough for me! So, if you are like me, wanting great results in 10 minutes, then here ya go!

STEP 1: Revision Skincare Intellishade Matte Tinted Moisturizer SPF 45. USE SUNSCREEN! USE SUNSCREEN! USE SUNSCREEN! Do not skip this step bc you don’t have wrinkles yet, or you don’t have brown pigment sunspots yet.  I have gone to great lengths to get rid of wrinkles and sunspots, so help yourself out and protect your amazing face! CLICK FOR LINK

unnamed-3.jpg

STEP 2: NARS Luminous ALL DAY Foundation/ Medium/ Stromboli/ Sheer Glow Foundation. I put a quarter size on my hand, then lightly spread it w a bush all over my face. I don’t like cakey foundation, I only use a little to make my face even and smooth.  I also go lightly over my neck and chest to make it all really blend. CLICK FOR LINK

https://rstyle.me/n/cyu39acc627

STEP 3: NARS Medium Custard Concealer. I put this under my eyes and on any blemishes on my face.  CLICK FOR LINK

unnamed-2.jpg

STEP 4: NARS Soft Velvet Loose Powder: Mountain. I loosely put this all over my face and neck. CLICK FOR LINK

STEP 5: NARS Orgasm Blush. I suck my cheeks in and put this on the “apple” of my check. I kinda brush in a circle to make sure it’s not a harsh line. CLICK FOR LINK

unnamed-4.jpg

STEP 6: Infallible Eye Shadow from CVS. I don’t know how to do eye shadow, like at all. So I don’t worry too much about it. I buy drugstore eye shadow and I put the light “888 Iced Latte” all over my eyelid and then “892 Amber Rush” on the bottom/lower corners of my eyelid. Blend together. 

unnamed-8.jpg

STEP 7: Black Eye Liner Pencil (NARS is great, the kind that you need to sharpen). I put this on the waterline of my lower lid. I think it makes you eyes pop. I don’t usually put eyeliner on my top lid. CLICK FOR LINK

STEP 8: NARS Brow Perfector. I lightly fill in my entire brows, focusing on splotchy areas to make them look fluid and even. CLICK FOR LINK

unnamed-9.jpg

STEP 9: ANASTASIA GLOW KIT. I dust the high part of my cheek, and make a “C” around the sides of my eye. Also dust the tip of my nose. CLICK FOR LINK

unnamed-6.jpg

STEP 10: LIPSENSE LONG LASTING LIP COLOR. This takes a little effort to put on, and you have to order from a distributer, but it’s worth it if you need great color for a long period of time and don’t want to worry about having to reapply, smudging or getting lipstick on your teeth. Put the color on your lips, 3 coats. Try to move in one fluid stroke. Wait 45 seconds in between each coat of color. The put the clear gloss on top. Carry this gloss w you all day and keep reapplying as needed. I wear Cranberry, Blu-Red and Bella the most.

unnamed-7.jpg

(EXTRA STEP) 11. LASH EXTENSIONS. I go to "Lash Out" Nashville and use Danielle. This has been a GAME CHANGER for me. I hate putting on mascara and taking it off the most of anything. Lash Extensions last about 3 weeks and you always have perfect lashes. Lashes are an expense, but worth it for someone like me who always needs lashes on point. MAKE AN APPOINTMENT

THAT’S ALL IT IS FOLKS! I hope this was helpful, leave a comment if it was, and what else you want me to blog about!
