Back To School Beauty

This is the last part of the "Back to School" series: and a very important one. Sitting at school all day is exhausting and certainly very dehydrating for our body and skin. I don't like to buy packaged water, I always bring my own water bottle and refill it multiple times a day. From the outside, I like to hydrate with Josie Maran Infinity Cream infused with argan oil, which I find to be a miracle ingredient! Argan oil may be used for skin and hair, and it perfectly balances out moisture levels. Most of Josie Maran's products contain argan oil– so does the Argan Love Your Lips Hydrating Lipstick"- which is a color-tinted lipstick in the middle enveloped by a moisturizing argan oil lip treatment. With this product, you get  a little bit of a color with a moisturized feel!

I usually wear minimal makeup at school, just a little mascara and a blush. I love this MAKE UP FOR EVER Sculpting Kit (you can see me wearing it in this post!) With two colors in a set (you can choose a lighter or a darker version) you mix and blend until you achieve your desired shade and strength of contour. With this set I also purchased a good large contouring brush. I have to say that application of contouring powder (or a blush) is SO MUCH easier with a nice large brush like this! The evenness of application doesn't rival small size brushes– until recently I have been using only this small Kabuki brush, and I can see the difference right away- the result looks so much more professional (I like the little brush for travelling though, it can work for application of translucent powder and a blush as well).

And lastly, Bobbi Brown Beach Fragrance is a nice way to prolong memories of enjoyable, warm, sunny days!

Back To School Tech

Back To School Tech

I've wanted to take handwritten notes on devices for some time, but the technology hasn't been good enough until recently. I tried note taking with my laptop, which was great for limited convenience and speed, but I missed handwriting. I often need to sketch graphs and draw diagrams, for which handwriting is simply the best. I did a little research on handwriting on iPad and started using Adonit Jot Script Evernote- Fine Point Stylus. I was skeptical at first, because for some reason amazon reviews are not so high, but after seeing this thorough youtube review by Aurélien Chevaleyrias I was encouraged enough to give it a try (and I'm glad I did). It works incredibly well! It's everything I wanted and looks and feels exactly like a pen.

Water-Based Miracle Foundation

Water-Based Miracle Foundation

I found an interesting new product: MAKE UP FOR EVER Face & Body Liquid Makeup. What fascinated me at first was the consistency of it, which was very different from any other foundations I'm familiar with. It looked like a liquid-y pudding. The makeup in the half-used display bottles didn't really stick to the glass on the inside of the containers.

Elle Mexico - Mayan #Jungler

Elle Mexico - Mayan #Jungler

If I had to choose a single photo shoot in the past that was the most fun and exciting, it would be my work for Elle Mexico called "World's End." We traveled to Tikal, Guatemala, which is one of the largest archeological sites and urban centers of the Mayan civilization. The site is part of Tikal National Park, and was declared an UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979.

Tikal was the capital of a conquest state that became one of the most powerful kingdoms of the ancient Maya.
