FLAWLESS FOUNDATION




Foundation is one of the most important steps in good makeup. It is for this reason that it is super important to choose the most adequate type of foundation finish for our skin type, and above all, the most accurate color for our face. That is why when I received the cordial invitation from Sephorainside JCPenney  to try out Sephora’s Color IQ shade match technology to select the perfect foundation for my skin, I really was super happy.  

Earlier this month I had the opportunity to relax a bit and leave my beautiful routine of being a full time mom behind for just a moment to dedicate myself for two hours in the hands of the professionals at Sephora inside JCPenney for a one-on-one makeover.

I had the pleasure to begin this incredible process in the hands of Sephora Education Area Manager, Megan Davidson with a mini facial… This was really the best in the world. I needed to relax for a while with pure relaxation and, of course, the perfect preparation to choose and apply the foundation.

Sephora inside JCPenney and Sephora have incredible technology that allows you to identify your skin type- the Moisture Meter - allowing us to determine our skin type, whether it is oily, dry, normal, or combination. In my case, it was combination. This tool is incredible because it is exact and it helps us choose the perfect cleanser and moisturizer for our skin type while saving time.

The next step was to determine my foundation shade with Color IQ. With this technology, a Sephora Area Education Manager obtains a number by taking photos of our skin with the portable tool and inputting that number into Sephora’s portable tablet to obtain all the products that exist at Sephora that match our skin tone. In my case, we decided on MakeUp For Ever’s Ultra HD foundation for a natural finish. I really liked the process of Color IQ because is the best way to determine the perfect foundation color for your skin, so easy and precise. For me, Color IQ was a completely new experience and the best one. I have to confess that this is the first time that I have the correct foundation for day, that covers and at the same time, has a super natural look that I really love.

After applying the foundation, Petey Palomo, my other Area Education Manager that day, was the one in charge of giving color and life to my face with the beautiful selection of the best products and brands that exist at Sephora. It was really an incredible experience where I felt truly spoiled and above all, a learning experience.

Thank you very much to Sephora inside JCPenney for giving me the fabulous opportunity to be a part of this Project where I learned more about Color IQ, how to select the perfect foundation and new trends in caring for my skin.

NEW FREEDOM FOR MY HAIR


Going to the park, delighting in nature, and enjoying being a full time mom is priceless for me. I enjoy a good evening and planning new travels, projects and dreams for my family and myself.
As you may know, hair care has always been a very important part of my beauty routine. I’m a big fan of having clean and healthy hair. So much so, that I can go out without makeup on but never leave the house with messy or dirty hair. That’s why I always have product on hand that protects my hair from the sun damage, air pollution and more. But not only that… I always try to have a really good ally for hair for all my weekly’s routines…yoga, exercises, take care of my son, blogging and travel.
Today I have the privilege of sharing that I have been chosen by Herbal Essences as an ambassador for their brand. I’m very excited and feel in heaven to be able to have the opportunity to represent the brand. A brand that goes just perfect with my life style, philosophy and authenticity. Inspired by natural antioxidants that are capable of neutralizing harmful free radicals, and one of my favorite characteristics is the first natural care brand.
There are nine different collections with shampoo and conditioner with unique and distinct components for every type of hair. They have exquisite and delicate fragrances for the most demanding tastes. Each collection has bio:renew technology, which means they have extraordinary ingredients like antioxidants, aloe, and sea kelp.
The nine collections of Herbal Essences include:  Argan Oil of Morocco, Vitamin E & Cocoa Butter, Passion Flower & Rice Milk, Passion Flower & Rice Milk, Coconut Milk, Golden Moringa Oil, Cucumbers and Green Tea, Arabica Coffee Fruit, Arabica Coffee Fruit, White Grapefruit & Mosa Mint and Rosemary & Herbs. The most fascinating part of all collections is that each one represents a culture, ritual, or millennium custom, all inspired by other cultures. All of this for my hair… how exciting, right?

I’m personally beyond happy with the Cucumber &a Green Tea collection. There aren't words to describe the divine scent in this marvelous duo. Plus, I can have you sure that you can feel results in your hair after your first use. I love to know that I can wash my hair after the gym without fear of my hair drying. It’s exciting to know that I have an excellent ally for my hair that not only have unique characteristics, but also adjusts perfectly to my multitasking life. I don’t have to wait longer to give myself deep treatments every so often when I have Herbal Essences by my side.
That’s all for now, but we will have a whole year to discover and enjoy Herbal Essences together. I hope you, too, will be able to discover the best collection for you as we embark on this journey toward healthy and beautiful hair together.

Xoxo
Laura
