Trendy Thursdays ~ Beauty Prep Your Shoot

As some of you may know, next Wed I will be shooting a campaign for a luxe brand in a fab major magazine! The following week I will also shoot a video as well. As many of you know, I'm frequently on HSN (back next month) as well so the fact is - I'm always prepping for the next shoot. I have a series of items that are a must in making your skin look amazing. Even though I think that you should always treat your skin right, I'm a firm believer that a week prior to any shoot, video or segment you must do a few things a little different. In addition to my increased workout regimen, I step up my beauty game! Below are some fab items that I definitely approve of!

I have been a Palmer's Cocoa Butter girl since I can remember (first memory - being 3 using it and currently, I go through quite a bit of this - no container is large enough to last around me)! It makes sure that you're skin has a fab glow, you smell like a walking cocoa butter ball and your skin is ultra soft - all things that play well for the camera. Over the past year, I have been a fan of my Clarisonic Mia which is perfect for my face, has timed rotations and keeps my face glowing! So when the Clarisonic Plus arrived at my door, I knew that this would be an updated oldie but goodie that I would not want to miss using whether I'm at home or on the road traveling! I love that this is for the face and the body which means super soft skin all over when you leave the shower with heads that are appropriate to use! With all the focus on the skin, I do believe in body scrubs which should be used twice a week. I'm always trying something new but I love Pacifica Kona Coffee & Sugar Detox - smells phenom and it's super invigorating! Finally, it's all about the lips. Philosophy has a Kiss Me exfoliating lip cream that is amazing and using this (I love doing it daily a week prior to an appearance or shoot) will only enhance your pucker, allow your gloss to go on evenly and make you feel better. Protect your lips by constantly moisturizing. I just became addicted to Sally Hansen's Vita B which leaves a nice layer without being crazy. WARNING - it's super addicting and you will go through a tube very quickly!
