A Diva’s Must-Haves

Every Diva has a couple simple but much-loved items in her repertoire. Here are a few amazing products that this Diva depends on right now.


Morphe Brushes Y6 Pro Flat Buffer–A must have for flawless foundation application. It’s a kabuki style brush that makes my face look like it’s been air bushed, no matter which foundation I’m using. And at $10, it’s a steal.

Heroes Beauty Cheek Blusher Brush–This is the perfect size blush brush for my face. Most are either way too big or super tiny and not usable, like the brushes that are included with most blushes. This brush is super soft, easy to clean, picks up color perfectly and applies it smooth and beautiful. It’s one piece of the most incredible brush set I’ve ever owned.

Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer–An ultra-sheer, natural, delicious-smelling bronzer that somehow doesn’t turn orange on me. This gives my skin a warm, true bronze glow that I can wear alone, without blush, and I look completely put together.

Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream—An instant cult favorite. Highly-moisturizing, fast-absorbing, incredible-smelling, beautiful body cream! This amazing cream leaves my skin smooth, tight, soft and smelling of the most intoxicating pistachio caramel scent. I want the entire set of products!

These are the items that I am living for right now. Simple, but can make the biggest difference.  I’d love to hear what products are on my devoted Divas’ must-have list, post in the comments below!


Beauty Q & A


Laugh it up fuzzball!

Janet is having issues with her disagreeable eyebrows.

I know exactly what she’s going through!  The only thing that helped me from looking like a Wookie was having my brows professionally shaped.  Almost every hair salon has a stylist that can do this and they will know exactly what shape is best for your face.  It’s the best extra money you can spend on yourself.  Keep in mind that you must regularly keep up with the maintenance, aka tweezin’. 2232066 Check that brow bone daily for any stray hairs.  Starting with the proper brow shape makes filling in any sparse areas or gray hairs so much easier. A light touch is best and I swear by brow pencils from IT
