When you go to an L.A. Dodger’s baseball game on Jackie Robinson Day, it’s best to let the pictures do the talking.
Makeup aficionados rejoice! I had the pleasure of attending a special presentation by Covergirl this weekend to announce the launch of their newest product: 3 in 1 Outlast Stay Fabulous foundation; a matte color line with primer and concealer built in. We had the opportunity to test out the foundation along with a full range of Covergirl products in order to create our perfect look.
There was even a full tutorial on foundation application! That being said, here are some tips I picked up on regarding applying your makeup:
- If using your hands: make sure they’re clean – be careful with oily/acne prone skin and streaks.
- Sponges: They’re more sanitary. Will give you a more sheer coverage. It will soak up some of the product so you’ll have to keep them clean.
- Foundation Brush: Makes it easier to blend out the foundation. Also easier to concentrate in areas where you need to conceal. Make sure you clean them after a few uses.
- Stippling Brush: Gives you an airbrush look. Stippling your foundation helps give it a clean finish.
Celebrity makeup artist Luis Casco did the honors.
I have an interesting skin tone (that’s my way of saying that my face doesn’t match the rest of my body) so he taught me how to properly blend two colors for the best possible match and coverage. I’m quite impressed with the foundation. I don’t usually wear matte as I opt for a more sheer look, but this makeup was light-weight and easy to blend and most importantly, looked very natural.
Thanks for developing another awesome product Covergirl! I’m adding the 3 in 1 Outlast Stay Fabulous to my list of things I love, along with your Lash Blast 24 Hour Mascara that I already wear on a daily basis!
I’m missing it! For the first time in 4 years I won’t be attending the L.A. Fit Expo and I’m totally bummed about it. My absentmindedness coupled with a weekend jam packed with activities left little time for me to swing by the L.A. Convention Center to scope out the action. This morning I had my first ballet lesson (which was AMAZING!!) and if I may: it’s never too late to pursue something that you’ve always been interested in That was immediately followed by a film audition. Tomorrow, I’ll be filming a webseries during the day and attending a much-anticipated dinner party in the evening. Sorry expo, career comes first, and there’s aways next year.
If you’re in L.A., today (Sunday) is the last day to attend! It’s a great learning experience and if anything, go for the people watching and the freebies!
The holiday season is here, which means a lot of over-indulgence, holiday parties and crunch time at work (hurray for burning through filming budgets at the end of the year!). Although it doesn’t happen often, I do like it when I have the opportunity to mix business with pleasure . . . who am I kidding, it happens quite often in my line of work! One of the most recent events I went to was the grand opening of Hot 8 Yoga in Beverly Hills; I discovered them at their original location in Santa Monica where I took my first ever hot ballet barre class. It was killer. I loved it.
The grand opening event featured a ribbon cutting ceremony by the mayor of Beverly Hills and was done in conjuction with their holiday party; that meant an open bar and arts and crafts in the form of ornament making! Included on the guest list was a tarot card reader who had less than stellar things to say about my non-existant love life -_-
You might be wondering what the benefits of doing yoga or sculpting in a heated room are, well, here ya go:
- Increased cardiovascular activity which helps burn fat and up your metabolism.
- Flush toxins out of your body.
- Superficial soft tissue structures, including the fascia, ligaments, muscles and tendons will warm up quickly and allow you to move further, more comfortably and more safely in all directions than while exercising in a cooler environment.
- Improved spinal integrity and nervous system function.
- The heat thins down the blood and allows it to perfuse deeply into body tissues and organs to facilitate healing.
I’m accustomed to lifting heavy weights, so imagine my surprise after feeling completely exhausted by the use of 2 lb weights! I definitely plan on going back for more.
Side note: Hot 8 is offering a $45 for 1 month of classes special. Check them out if you’re in the area!
Put me on a rooftop with some friends and the folks from Covergirl and Latina Magazine and I can promise you a good time. The London Hotel in West Hollywood played host to Latina’s annual ‘Latinos in Hollywood’ party last week where I learned my limit when it comes to drinking champagne. . . three glasses. Okay, fine, it’s actually two.
One of the best parts of being an actor – besides being able to explore the psyche of and become a new character – is working with and meeting new people. From the cast to the crew, working in entertainment surrounds you with people you probably wouldn’t ‘normally’ meet. After meeting said people, you usually get to hang with them at events such as wrap parties, which is where all the real fun begins.
Last night saw the official conclusion of my latest project ‘East Los High’. It’s a coming of age show about Latino youths in east L.A. Airing on MTV Mexico and on their website , it’s going to make for a great viewing experience. Here are a few shots from last night’s event. Check back with me for more details soon!
