Plus, her step-by-step everyday makeup routine.
I love my life in the beauty industry!
I wear many hats in my life in beauty. I so love being a small business owner in America and being the designer of my indie beauty brand. I also am passionate about educating at spa and beauty shows across the country.
BUT my fave thing to do is making women happy that means YOU too!
So, I promised I will share what’s in my mini fridge by Cooluli the 4L classic…that I featured on TV in my beauty segment on WJXT the other day.
The possibilities are endless! You are only limited by your imagination.
I am a Northern girl who moved to Florida for my husband. But being MADLY IN LOVE I soon discovered Florida is VERY VERY hot,steamy and humid. Not a winning combination for my hair and skin. I GET REALLY HOT! They say Southern girls don’t sweat they glisten. Well that’s proof I am a Northerner as I sweat. From hair to toe! So, I am always looking for ways to keep cool.
These are a few of the things I store in my mini fridge I dicovered on social media and Allure magazine’s beauty editors Instagram page.
I love exploring all the options we have in life and this fridge is one of them!
I don’t keep all these products in my mini fridge but I do whenever I need to. I rotate my as needed. Using them out if the fridge feels refreshing and amazing!
Sheet masks for the face
Neck Sheet masks
Eye sheet masks OR eye pads
Lip gel or sheet masks
Cool Eye masks
Mud or clay face masks
Great for all skin care, especially organic and natural skincare
Beauty products containing active ingredients, such as vitamin C and retinol.
Perfect for eye creams designed to de-puff or for treatments that care for sensitive or irritated skin.
Jade Facial rollers
Rose Quartz Facial rollers
My Rosewater Kisses – Why keep your rosewater or setting spray next to your Dijon mustard and more and so far from your bathroom or vanity?
Melted lipsticks and makeup from below from my purse or tote from hot summer days to firm them up.
To chill my wash cloths!
My Energy shots
Green Juices or Smoothies
Keep your products at your fingertips with a mini fridge.
AND chocolates…yes,I went there. I love to chill Hershey’s Kisses and other chocolates in it and eat them cold while doing my makeup for an evening out on the town.
Did I tell you it even warms food?
I even love to use it to warm my face or hand towels!
Cooluli is your answer to efficient and adorable skin care
organization. Isn’t it adorable? And if you want it in another color or larger size they make that too!

People will stop you and ask where you got that from?
Gals will be pink with envy!
Guys love it too! (Great gift idea)
Enjoy chilling or warming and get yours too!
If you’re a mom it is great for Baby bottles,formulas…and medicine that needs refrigeration.

DON’T just sit on that couch this weekend and or New Years Eve…
Steal the show with a more daring and bolder you!
Step 1. Apply concealer. I like a salmon or yellow beige hue they work wonders on the eye area and on any facial imperfections like brown spots,broken capillaries and more. Blend well.
Step 2. Add a dash of color on your eyelid all over to the brow bone. Try a pretty Champagne Gold for a soft kiss of color.
If you want to use a shadow primer first that’s fine too.
*Another version of this party eye is with a Sterling Silver or Rose Gold or a coppery hue. It doesn’t have to shout I have on eyeshadow or shimmery eye shadow.
It is ENOUGH to wear one color all over the lid. I promise.
Step 3. Line your eyes with a gel eyeliner pencil in a brown or brown back shade.Apply to the inner rim on the top of the inner eye at the lash line.
Step 4. Add a Lash Lift lash primer to your clean lashes. This hydrates your lashes and adds a bit of lash volume.
Let it dry. Apply a teal or eggplant mascara. These hues opens up the eyes,brighten up the whites of your eyes and makes you look less tired.
Repeat another coat of mascara.
Step 5. Brush brows with my WOW Brow and Clear Mascara in one.
If you need color or to fill them in use a brush on brow powder or a brow pencil in feathery strokes first. Brush after you let it set a couple of minutes.
Step 6. Add a little bit of glitter around the eyes if you want to sparkle a bit more.
My message here is you don’t have to use a boat load of eye shadow like the girls of Instagram and YouTube.
A little bit of color goes a long way,Beauties!
Happy Party 🎉 Eyes to you!
Define your eyes and mesmerize.
This morning I took the TV viewers on River City Live to a Backstage BEAUTY Pass… to Fashion week.
Makeup artists who work behind the scenes work tirelessly painting,primping,pampering and and above all hydrating the skin!
It is all about the skin. If the skin does not look it’s best the makeup won’t look the best.
TwinMedix: These essentials got some complexions on the right track with an advanced skin care collection!
Embryolisse: A French delight that models and makeup artist can’t get enough of for gorgeous skin.
Danessa Myricks Beauty: Her Beauty Oils and Dew Balm gives the skin the glowiest look!
Waleda Skin Food: Is another moisturizing lotion that some models request.
Sheet masks from Korea were yet another instant prettier skin fix!
Jade and Rose Quartz gemstone eye and face rollers: were used to relax the face and make the makeup glide on like silk after a moisturizer or serum was applied.
I’ve even seen silver spoons used in an ice bath and applied to the face for puffy complexions at fashion shows! Or the makeup artists use spoons dry and at room temperature ones are used to curl the eyelashes.

Rosebud Salve: A pro FAVE’ was used for unruly tresses,chapped lips and to give the skin a glowy look. This is in my makeup kit too.
The NO MAKEUP Makeup Look made a big appearance BUT it takes makeup and lots of work to achieve the look.
Aquaphor is another lip and face product that is seen behind the scenes.
Makeup Brushes: There are plenty used and in all shapes and sizes. There is a brush and sponge for every part of the face and body. Powder puffs rule too!
One of brands of nail polish used was Essie. Who doesn’t love it? One of the hot hues used was Licorice. A deep gray black shade of sexy.
Mr. Eyeliner a set of cosmetic pencils was used on the faces on the models by Jasmine Ortiz MUA on a fashion show featuring Kilane Collection by celeb fashion designer Pamela Quinzi . Photographed by @rjensalada_21 on Instagram
I hope you enjoyed this sneak peek behind the scenes in the makeup kits at fashion shows and fashion week.
Tired puffy eyes got you down?
Show host and reporter Vic Mic from WJXT 4 ‘s The Morning Show wanted to know what he could do so I thought the TV viewers and YOU would want to know too. Sometimes it may be what you eat. Sometimes it is all about that time of year like seasonal allergies.Sometimes it is lack of sleep. Sometimes it is all that partying you are doing!
“Concealer is good start but only covers up and masks the issues”
Here are a few of my other professional recommendations for the ladies or men.
1.Eye treatment masks give instant gratification! These are a hot trend and work wonders! Today I shared To Go Spa’s cooling coconut eyes gel eye masks.
2. Try an Eye Gel as it is lighter than a cream and it is a less heavy feel and application. Choose a formula that brightens and hydrates the tissue in the eye area.
3. A natural approach could be a slice of a potato or good old cool cucumber. It does help temporarily in the appearance of a puffy eyes.Chill,lay down and place either of them on your eyes. It isn’t only all about what you use topically on the face!
4. COLD spoons pressed across your eyelid can cool and tone down the puffiness but you don’t want to carry a frozen or cold spoon with you all day…Do you?
You need beauty from the inside out with a dietary beauty supplement like NeoCell’s Glow Matrix.
Clinically tested rapid action ceramides keep the moisture in and the glow matrix blend help improve skin moisture and elasticity reduced signs of aging.It keeps the skin supple looking,plump (that’s a good thing) and hydrated!

I love hearing from you and want to help with your beauty issues too.
As many times as I have been on this show this is a special and new greeting that I discovered in the lobby at the TV station. Pretty cool isn’t it?
Today I shared on RIVER CITY LIVE TV in sunny Jacksonville Florida some beautiful products that I discovered in NYC and some fashionable delights too. I love spring in NYC even though it isn’t acting like it nor showing signs of all it’s splendor. It is hard to believe there is yet another NorEaster TODAY! Mother Nature up north does not quite know what to do let the flowers bloom or just freeze.
Color Your World,GORGEOUS with color filled hues this Spring in beauty,fashion accessories and lifestyle trends.
Hot hues are really on trend in makeup,fashion and even food.
It is going to be quite an amazing and pretty SPRING.
NYC was filled with color from home decor,makeup and all things fashion. I so love window shopping and actual shopping on the streets of the city that never sleeps!
I just enjoyed two glorious days of awesome at the IECSC conference in beautiful FT. Lauderdale Florida.
I am jet lagged and I didn’t even fly enjoyed …and enjoyed a little bit of Palm Beach and a bit of R&R so I am energized.
There was a vibe on the show floor that happily filled the air…after Hurricane Irma beauty professionals and beauty business owners were so ready to learn and explore the show floor.
I taught my two classes and enjoyed shopping every inch of the show floor.
I sniffed,touched,played in new beauty potions and makeup shades and watched other beauty and skin care experts slay the show floor with their demos and new product releases!
Here is my beauty and skin haul!
The show floor was a candy store for the skin care pro,spa,makeup artist and beauty retailer.
Color has become bolder in makeup, skin has never been more in and the future looks bright for business! Finally!
To Go Spa has added new face masks that offer instant gratification. My fave’s is for the neck and the lips.
Farmhouse Fresh has added soaps to their line and an awesome decadent Chai and a dash of honey Shea butter lotion for the body and hands. This line is coveted by Oprah,J Lo and Kim Kardashians makeup artist have used the brands Agave Nectar on the decollete and body on the red carpet.
Sassi lashes have the most amazing human hair lashes that a lot of makeup artists were buzzing about.
Tan Towel is the safest got to tan that not only do I use but celebrities and the girl next door uses. Their face tan towel comes wrapped like a condom and is great for travel. They also have one for half body and touch up where you want a kiss of color. No orange hands,no smelly TAN,no skin cancer from baking in the sun. I love love love this product.
I purchased a new roller for the skin…It’s called Micro-needling and will explore and chat more on this in a future blog to come soon.
Blinc Mascara doesn’t paint the lashes but tubes them with mascara has some awesome colors like purple and blue. They also added an amplified mascara to their lash lineup too. This mascara washes off with luke warm water and a washcloth. No running,no clumping!
I took in a few classes and took lots of notes in my glam notebook!
Not only are their more beauty tools and skin devices, dream creams continue to soar.
This fall it is all about BERRY hues on lips, cheeks and eyes … BOLD and beautiful. Metallics are really in too. Thank goodness the smoky eye is taking a bit of a rest.
Red lips dress to impress with the rest so don’t worry girls you can still wear your signature classic red.
I wanted to shop even more…but because of the hurricane the show floor had less vendors. Florida is still TRYING to make a comeback.
I have a gift box to give away… How would you like to win it?
Have you ever wondered about the shape of those tweezers you own or see while shopping? Me too!
Angled– are perfect for eyebrow grooming.
Flat-are great for removing multiple hairs.
Slanted-This shape helps you remove sensitive hair areas and precise grooming.
Pointed– Perfect for fine hairs and for ingrown hair.
I like to add the BEAUTY BEAM to my tweezers so I can light up and ……….see where I am working and removing hair.
I also like to own several sizes of tweezers from pricey to cheap. And the MINI ones are perfect for your cosmetic bag in your purse.
So there you have it. A little 101 on tweezers and more.
You will fall in love with the Beauty Beam once you try it. I use it on TV,photo shoots or when I do makeup in my studio or on location.
You never know when you need a little light on your face,brows,eye area and lips!
Here is a low calorie delight recipe I found from one of LA’s chef’s.Celebrities so LOVE this shake! You will too.
