Keeping It Simple – Weekend Beauty Routine

photoI don’t know about you guys, but I like to keep it simple on the weekends.  Unless of course I have a date I’m nervous about.  Nervous because there are some men that just make a woman nervous, if you know what I mean.

Since I wear makeup 5 days a week and blow-dry my hair, it makes sense that I’m just lazy come Saturday morning, especially if it’s a beautiful day.

I wear no makeup, except for my eyebrows and maybe a CC or BB Cream, but highly unlikely.

This past weekend, was no exception and my beauty routine was easy-peasy.

1. Eye Cream – don’t forget to use one with anti-aging benefits, by Orlane.

2. Facial Oil with antioxidant protection and hydration, by Sunday Riley.

3. Lip Balm – this one is the best by Homeoplasmine.

4. Eyelash enhancer by Talika Lipocils.

5. Rodan Lip Balm for a bit of color.

6. Eyebrow Pencil by “IT” Cosmetics, the best I’ve ever tried.

7. Serum De Soie by Leonor Greyl – I let my hair air-dry and this keeps it silky smooth and frizz free all day.

There you have it, mind you I didn’t take any pictures of myself.  Not that I didn’t look nice, it’s just not the version of myself I want caught on film.

So, what’s your weekend beauty routine like?



I must, I must increase my Bust w/ Talika

I’ve never had a problem with my bust size, although I do have issues with gravity.  Talika’s Bust Serum is the first product of its kind that has been clinically proven to increase the bust size by giving the breasts increased firmness of 70% and a non-surgical breast lift of 18%. 
You will experience one cup size in 6 weeks! 
*Breast lift: +18%
The breasts are attached to the thorax by ligaments (Cooper’s ligaments). With absolutely no muscle, their only support is the skin. Volume and weight variations erode skin elasticity, triggering a loss in curve and sagging.Thanks to the extract of kigelia africana , Bust Serum prevents the tissue from sagging and improves bust firmness and appearance. Clinical trials have shown +18% in breast lift.*

*Firmness: + 70%
The combination of kigelia africana, mukul bark extract, oat extract, peptides, raspberry seed oil from Chile and hyaluronic acid strengthens the skin’s binding and hence tonicity, thereby tangibly improving its elasticity by 70%. Your breasts will be better maintained and developed as result.*

I apply this magical potion every morning after my shower, the serum absorbs easily into the skin, creating an invisible bra effect, because the size and quality of our breasts is important.  There is such a thing as bad cleavage.  Talika Bust Serum, an alternative to breast implants.

Bust Serum by Talika is Citygirl approved!

Beauty Travel – on the Go with Talika

Being at home getting ready takes me longer then 5 minutes, while traveling I try to get out of my hotel room in less than 5.
I attribute it to the fact that I just want to get out there and see the world! Preparing for a trip takes thought and preparation with my toiletries.  Everyone laughs because I travel with more skincare and makeup than clothes.
My makeup routine is also more minimal, and recently I discovered Talika – I love all Talika products especially this adorable mini eyelash curler. 
It makes for the perfect travel companion, since I’ve used Lipocils my eye lashes are longer and thicker, soon I won’t need mascara. 
I pack all my skincare and makeup in the regulated size ziplock bags and Talika’s mini eye lash curler hardly takes up any room.  It’s easy to use and works beautifully!

Instant Beauty by Talika

Instant Beauty by Talika keeps the skin hydrated while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Instantly I noticed that my skin texture was tighter and smoother, my pores were minimized and my skin felt fresh and energized.
The instant facelift effect was instant beauty – the essential ingredients give the skin a luminous and radiant glow that comes from within. 
After a stressful day at the office, with the holidays and dealing with personal relationships it was a luxury to erase the signs of fatigue from my skin – isn’t it time you refreshed and energized your skin?

Intensify your lashes with Talika

I became intrigued with the idea of Talika’s heated  eye lash curler.  I was sceptical at first, believing that if I didn’t follow directions I would surely burn my lashes.  Not a chance, the controlled temperature made this beauty device easy to achieve gorgeous more dense lashes. 

I’m in love with this amazing beauty tool, it’s safe, gently and effective.  I couldn’t stop starring at my lashes.

Sometimes no matter how effective mascara or lash enhancing products are you can’t quite achieve the lashes of your dreams.  I can honestly say that Talika’s Heated Eye lash curler was the icing on the cake.

All these months of testing so many amazing eyelash enhancing products prepared me for this moment, this heated eye lash curler was the missing piece to the puzzle.

Intensify your lashes with Talika for more dense and lush lashes.

Heated Eye Lash Curler by Talika gets a TEN!


Glamorous & Natural Lashes w/ Talika

I’ve always been fascinated by false eyelashes, but I could never stand wearing them for long periods of time.
I didn’t believe my lashes could get  more beautiful, having been testing lash enhancers, heated eyelash curlers for months – well now there is help for those of us who don’t believe in eyelash enhancers or heated eyelash curlers.
One of my favorite brands created an amazing Lash Extender, the rayon fibers adhered to my lashes between two coats of my favorite mascara.  My lashes were stunning, natural with a glamorous effect. 
Talika is one of the best companies you can trust your lashes too!  The undetectable results will leave you breathless, you achieve instant, long-lasting results that last all day.
I love having glamorous, lush and natural looking lashes, and just in time for New Year’s Eve!
