The Chemical Structure of a Paraben
Parabens are real, they have chemical structure and present as live molecules in our physical systems. 

In light of this knowledge, I have been wanting to write a paraben free face post for a while now, and here it is!  

From my hand picked skincare treatment to brush of mascara, to final kiss! This will take no more than 12 minutes to apply from start to finish.  

Let us begin!


Firstly, for mature skin, I use a collagen skin tightener from Wei East called Extreme Face Up.  Made of refined silica for tightening properties.

I actually modeled for her a year and a half ago, on the site you will see me sans makeup, it really works! 

Wei was so much fun to work with, and so informative, too! I love her!!

Next, I really like Laura Mercier Mineral Foundation Primer, you can layer it with a moisturizer or use without in the summertime:

The Lord & Taylor Link!

Laura Mercier Blush:
Bonne Mine Healthy Glow Creme Couleur Palette for Face

At Lord & Taylor!

*100% of proceeds  from the sale of this product will be donated to the Laura Mercier Ovarian Cancer Fund.*

Apply blush lightly under cheek bones, facial contours, especially the two corners by the forehead for definition, also lightly under the chin to define jaw line!

Be sure to smooth and blend these lovely shaded for definition and light coverage.

Laura Mercier color stays true, great product!


Kate Somerville Cyto-Cell or eyes Allure Award winner:

At Kate Somerville
Binds the proteins underneath skin so over time you achieve a smoother, healthier look! This eye cream comes in two price points, $75 and $125 which is even more hydrating.  

This results-oriented formulation instantly alleviates the appearance of puffiness, diminishes dark circles, and dramatically reduces the appearance of fine lines. It is non greasy and absorbs well!

I have very sensitive eyes, and can even dab on a tiny drop before bedtime, and next morning my eyes ARE refreshed and ready for the coming day! Non-sting, no redness.

Finish with REN Skincare Radiant Eye maintenance gel for all skin types:
