Favorite Makeup Product: Can I have 3? Tinted moisturizer, Bronzer, and a hydrating Lip Balm! An easy, two-minute, everyday look!

Favorite Hair Product: R+Co. Dry Shampoo paste— it absorbs excess oil to give the hair volume while acting like a pomade for more structure and body.

Favorite Beauty Hack: Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter and Airbrush Flawless Foundation— equal parts mixed. It’s long-wearing, breathable and it photographs beautifully giving the skin a youthful glow! 

From the Artist: “Makeup is a vibe— switch it up depending on where you’re going, what you’re wearing, and how you’re feeling. Curate a look to express your style, personality and celebrate your individuality!”
