Hello, friends! I hope all of you had a great Easter, and are having a great week!

Beauty tutorial
Once again, many thanks to Jessica Alba for her recent informative beauty tutorial on Instagram. Needless to say, on that day, I was able to learn about two beauty products that I already cannot live
without: the Everything Cream Foundation, that I already reviewed last week, and the product I will quickly review today: the Anti-Wrinkle Eye Mask. I purchased this product on Amazon for a very reasonable price. I love not spending a fortune on beauty products.

I have been using this Anti-Wrinkle Eye Mask for about two weeks now, and I already noticed a decrease in puffiness under my eyes. As many of you already know, I suffer from severe allergies all year round. As a result, my eyes are constantly red and puffy. So, finding a product that helps blur out the puffiness means the world to me. This eye mask is travel-friendly, soft on your fingers, and designed to fit perfectly under your eyes, anywhere and anytime. I highly recommend it.


As for Claudio, I am still trying to teach some new tricks. This week, we have been learning the words “stop” and “sit.” Around his nap time, when I ask my furry baby to sit, he happily runs off. Have a great week! XO, Nunzia 

Hello, everyone!

Last week, I was on my Instagram page when I noticed that Jessica Alba was doing a live makeup tutorial before attending a birthday party. Thanks to Jessica, I learned about this amazing product that I already cannot live without: the Everything Cream Foundation.

The Search

Many of you who have been following my blog are well aware that I have been searching for that perfect foundation. I could write a thesis on how difficult it is to find your perfect brand and shade. I hear
you clearly. Finding that perfect foundation can be daunting for your skin and your wallet. Needless to say, after searching for almost two years, that precious and unforgettable moment has finally arrived.

Yes, many of my readers know that I get overly excited if I find a great beauty product for a great price. I am always on the lookout for a product that really works.

How it Feels on your Skin

I know it sounds too good to be true! This mess-free, travel-friendly foundation provides exactly what I need: even coverage and a youthful, refreshing look. It has become a part of my daily makeup routine. 

This soft, comfy, creamy formula comes in 14 flattering shades. The Honest Beauty company did a super job creating a product formulated to deliver coverage that stays on all day long. The creamy texture blends like a dream. 

What really sold me is the flawless look that lasts all day. It goes on smoothly, and you do not look like your are wearing a thick vale or mask over your face.

How to Apply

1. Moisture is the key! Wait 2-3 minutes after applying moisturizer, until it is absorbed well into the skin

2. Use a primer that will help blur the dry fine lines

3. Starting at the center of your cheeks, apply the creamy foundation. Buff well with a brush in circular motions. I use a large brush, like the one Jessica used during her live makeup tutorial

With this product, the circular and buff techniques are very important to achieve that perfect/impeccable finished look. Please don’t hesitate to build it up. Trust me on this one, because I have already tested this repeatedly on my skin, and I am very pleased with the results.

I give this product 5 out of 5 stars.

On my next update, we will be chatting about my new anti wrinkle energized mask. This product was also suggested my Jessica!

Hello, friends! As many of you already know, I love to take great care of myself. I often wonder: when did I become this psychotically obsessed with health and beauty

Okay, some of us are naturally blessed with beautiful skin. So, why not take a few steps to keep that beautiful skin glowing as long as possible? After all, it is the largest organ in our body, so let’s keep in mind that it is important to pay attention to all the skin products that we apply.
I have severe food allergies. Therefore, I need to pay extra attention when I read labels to ensure that the products do not have any ingredients that can cause an allergic reaction. Just in the past month, an Ipsy bag I received had almonds in it. That can be dangerous for someone like me who suffers from tree nut allergies. We need to always read the labels to identify those not-so-great ingredients that can make us sick.

Keep in mind, even if a facial cream says “organic,” that does not mean that you will not get a reaction. Back in 2017, I was using this organic line. Right before I left for Italy that summer, I ended up having red skin patches under my eyes and cheekbones. My skin was screaming desperately for help. Thankfully, my allergist was able to identify what was causing the reaction and treat it.
Since that reaction, typically, before I shop for a skin product, I like to do research to learn as much as possible about the product. Within the past couple of months, I have been super focused on the ingredients of products that I choose for my beauty routine. 

Please understand that I am not affiliated with any of the products that I share with you on my blog. I do reviews, and talk about my latest treasures, simply because I love to share all this with you.
Today, I will be reviewing my new hydrating mask. Thanks to Ipsy, it was one of the goodies that I received in the last bag. This mask is called Trissola Hydrate.


I have been using Trissola Hydrate just about every day and, thanks to the powerful ingredients packed into this amazing facial mask, enriched with vitamins and natural extracts to perfectly remove large pores and dark spots. It also brightens the skin. Also, masking frequently with this new product in my beauty routine has brought my skin to the next level of hydration. 

Now, it requires less time and maintenance to keep my skin soft with less appearances of those annoying, dry, fine lines. Immediately after you remove it from your face, you feel as if you had a professional facial.

Best,

I will be back soon to blog about all my favorite things! XoXo

How was your Thanksgiving?!
Last weekend was such a productive weekend. I have been super busy finishing my latest article called “Christmas is Here Again.” It will be out right before the holidays. I hope you enjoyed reading my latest one,” In the Moment,” that came out on November 1st.
Now, let’s switch gears and talk about makeup, shall we?
As you know, over the past few years, I have tried more than my fair share of foundations, from high-end to drugstore products. Some of you may call it an obsession. The Makeup Forever HD Foundation will be in my makeup bag from now, forever and ever.
Not too long ago, as I was strolling around Sephora, I picked up a few samples and absolutely loved the Makeup Forever HD Foundation. So, of course, I bought the full bottle. I highly recommend trying on the small samples first before purchasing any foundations. This lovely foundation comes in a plastic bottle with a pump dispenser and a plastic lid, super cute and light weight.
This is a medium coverage foundation, It’s a great color match, and it blended well with my skin tone. It can be built to a medium/full coverage, which I have done in the pictures above. They were taken for Great North Apparel over the weekend.
This product will last for many hours on your skin, without fading away like other foundations do. What I love the most about this foundation is that it gives you that beautiful, youthful glow. It allows your skin to breathe, and it looks super natural. I have been wearing it frequently, especially for my photo shoots. The results are great. The consistency is a bit thick, but it does not cake on your skin.
With the holidays right around the corner, all of us are ready to have that perfect “photo shoot” face. I would definitely recommend this foundation to all the ladies out there, of all ages. I must and will give this product 5 out of 5 stars.

Days I have posted.
