Givenchy – Écrin Privé

I´m not a makeup junkie. Far from it. My everyday makeup consist of black eyeliner, blush, and lipbalm. When I have a meeting or an event I go crazy and apply foundation, black eyeliner (to do my perfect cat eye), blush, and fuchsia lips. That’s about it. Considering that I work in the beauty industry, it’s pretty sad. So one of my resolutions for 2013 is to be more creative with… Read more »

ELLE México Diciembre

OK, I´ll try not to lose my shit. Getting your photographs published in ELLE Mexico happens every day, right? No big deal. But hell yeah it is! It doesn´t happen everyday, and now I feel like a 6-year-old kid on Christmas morning in 1988 unwrapping a Nintendo 8-bit entertainment system with two controllers and super Mario Bros cartridge. It’s a big deal. Here´s what happened. Pau Soto, ELLE´s beauty editor, asked me if I would… Read more »

Some Glorified mud

So last week I came home with a bagful of Chanel facial creams. Don’t worry, I didn’t steal them; one of my job perks is that I can get this stuff with an employee discount (uh-uh, sorry, can’t hook you up, so don’t bother asking).

This summer, eau de toilette

For me summer is the best time to try new fragrances, especially eau de toilettes. They are so light and fresh, and I love that you can apply them several times during the day to refresh your skin. I always start my day applying them right after my morning shower. Luckily, I got the opportunity to try 4 new eau de toilettes: Elie Saab Le Parfum, Madly Kenzo, Narciso Rodriguez for her eau Délicate, and… Read more »

Beauty Products

Lately my bathroom cabinet has been filled with a lot of beauty products. A lot. Some I bought, some were given to me for testing, and others came from various goodie bags. As the good blogger I am I tested them all. But not all of them made it into my favorite-will-buy-forever-don´t-leave-me-list. These are the ones that did. Have you tried any of them, and did any of them make it to your list of… Read more »
