Teami Skinny: First 7 Days

Hey Angels,

Here is my recap of what I experienced in my first 7 days of using Teami Blends Skinny loose leaf tea. I show you how I make my detox tea in the video below and explain what Teami is and the directions for usage.

The main benefits I am looking for in this detox tea are improved skin health, increased metabolism, aid in weight loss. After the first week I did notice an improvement in my skin as I had less pimples than usual and I was very hydrated. I have not noticed any change in weight or measurements yet. I will be making another video at the end of the 30 days to show you my results!

What to Wear | Talent Agency

Hey Angels

Recently, I have received messages and comments via Facebook and Instagram regarding modeling and promotional modeling. While I'm still a novice, I thought I would share my tips on what to wear when meeting an agency for the first time. I am with more than one agency, this was just the first time I was meeting with the latest one. In this industry, it is normal for you to work with multiple agencies. I have worked various promotional modeling jobs as well as booked a few paid photo shoots; I also have video experience in case you are wondering. Check out my tips in the video below!

Natural Makeup for Photography

Hey Angels,

Yesterday I completed my second paid photo shoot and realized that I have not updated you all on my makeup routine in a fairly long time! The photographer requested that my face look very natural as if I was on vacation and just woke up an hour ago. It can be difficult to cover up blemishes yet still appear to not be wearing any makeup.

That is why I choose to use the Avon Smooth Minerals loose mineral foundation in Medium Beige as my base and the L'Oreal True Match Liquid Foundation in Sun Tan as concealer for extreme redness only. I applied the liquid foundation with my fingers around my nose and on a few blemishes. Using a large Soho Kabuki brush, I swirled the mineral foundation allover my face, blending it with the small spots of liquid foundation.

Then I used Wayne Goss's curling technique of pumping the eyelash curler really fast and applied L'Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Excess black mascara to lengthen and define my lashes. No eyeliner, or shadow just straight to lightly filling in my brows with Avon Perfect Eyebrow Pencil in Blonde.

Lastly, I applied pink lip gloss with NO shimmer. Shimmer is a dead giveaway that you're in makeup so avoid it when doing natural shoots. I like the Balm Plump Your Pucker in Pink My Lemonade because it gives a slight pink tint to my darker two toned lips.

What are your favorite products when going for a natural look?
