Rejuva Flawless Foundation Delivers Flawlessly!

Foundation, by definition for my everyday women, is makeup applied to the face to create an even look.  With all of the brands available, techniques and applicators, finding the perfect foundation for your skin can be tricky.

If you're like me, you know your skin well enough to know what it likes and what it cannot deal with as soon as it touches your face.  Throughout my years on and off the runway, I have had breakouts from the makeup used on my face.  After learning what my face liked I started treating it to specific products. 

I was introduced to REJUVA Minerals in June and fell in love with them, and their Baked Blush. immediately.  Cranfusion arrived in the prettiest packaging and quickly became my #EverydayRunway favorite blush. Not because of the packaging but because of their products are cruelty-free, toxin free and organic  Read more about it here when you finish reading about my new foundation from Rejuva.

As I mentioned, Rejuva products are natural and chemical free.  These are just a few of the key factors when I am decided to give Rejuva Flawless Finish Cream Foundation a try.  With complimentary shades for my skin tone, it was easy enough for me to pick one and have it shipped to me.  

The arrival of my Rejuva products are always on time.  It's as if they know my schedule and when I have an event coming up. I received my Caramel foundation on Friday and set it aside for application the next day.  As always, the packaging and product branding was another detail letting me know the product was worth its weight in this heavily saturated world of makeup. 

Because we are talking foundation, it is more important for me to show you how flawless my look was when I used my foundation.  The application was simple and easy using the enclosed applicator.  The cream foundation offered fuller coverage which is what I need when attending events where pictures will be taken or filming my TV show.  

After I applied my foundation and blush I wanted to see how it was working and took a quick selfie break.  I loved everything about it and the sun really showed how the foundation provided great coverage without looking heavy or caked on.

 Excuse my eyelashes, I am still working to find the perfect mascara to give them a boost.

Off to my events I go.  First up blogging for the Glam the Runway Meet & Greet Brunch.  My mind automatically thinks, "oh my I hope my makeup looks as good outside the house as it did in the house!"

A quick selfie and we’re looking good.

Tip:  When selecting a foundation you should look for products that are as natural as possible and can deliver the level of coverage you want. For light to medium coverage, Rejuva offers a powder foundation. For full coverage, try their flawless cream foundation. 

After receiving this photo from one of the photographers at my event I can confidently say Rejuva will be my new foundation! 

Flawless coverage happens when you can apply your foundation and your skin looks silky and smooth. I prefer a natural glam makeup look and Rejuva foundation gives the perfect amount of coverage.

CHIC Backpack and Tote All In One...MotoChic is Everyday Runway Approved!

IMG_0472.JPG

Very few things make me happier than multifunctional pieces in my closet. I’m talking a dress you can wear five ways multifunctional. A bracelet you can wear as a necklace or a cool reversible jacket. I thought I knew about all things multifunctional until I met Lauren. Lauren is one of the beautiful pieces offered from MOTOCHIC GEAR for “stylish women on the go” like myself.  

When my Lauren bag arrived I knew I would be carrying it every day! Why?

First, it’s super chic!  The motorcycle design aesthetic makes it the perfect bag for women like me who want style and function. It’s a conversation piece and rightly so because of the clean lines, zipper details, and reflective material.

Next, on my list of reasons why I love the Lauren bag, it’s functionality. Lauren is no ordinary bag. For my busy days running between shows, meetings and coaching sessions, Lauren serves as the perfect backpack. I throw it over my shoulders and bike it a couple of New York City blocks. When I reach the light rail, I transform it from backpack to stylish tote for my meetings. Multiple compartments and hidden pockets provide the space I need for my two phones, laptop, heels, three planners and favorite purple pins. Those are just my starter items.  I won't mention my favorite lip gloss, lip balm, and travel chargers to make sure my electronics keep up with me throughout the day are in my bag.

As if I couldn’t love the Lauren bag enough, the bag comes with it’s own protective rain gear built in! The weather in Charlotte has been unstable and unpredictable this summer. Thunderstorms pop up and I’m scrambling trying to figure out how to save my hair, clothes, purse and everything.inside. The Lauren bag has taken the worry away because I can open the secret compartment holding the rainfly and viola...my laptop, heels and phone are now safely tucked inside of the bag.

Ladies, if you’re looking for the perfect companion for your moto jacket this fall, now is the perfect time to purchase the Lauren bag.  

IMG_0154.JPEG

I’ve been carrying mine this summer and can tell you now, I will be carrying Lauren through the fall and winter months and right back into the spring and summer season! Made from sturdy material, the Lauren bag will make sure you’re Runway Ready for every event, meeting, school play, ball game, trip and night out in the town!

Mount Up and ClutchIt!

This powerful magnetic mount has officially changed the game offering a hands-free experience for phone and tablet users alike. 

When I saw the Clutchit I wondered how and if it would work. I wondered if it would live up to the hype and finally be the only tripod or phone mount needed for recording my videos.

Let's stop wondering and get to the matter at hand, using a magnet to hold my phone (and many other things).

Clutchit unpacking.  

The cutest little box arrived with the ClutchIt magnetic mount inside. When I opened the box it contained the Clutchit, a large magnet and three small magnets.  After toying around with it for a few minutes I finally realized what each part was for.  The smaller magnets are for the electronics you will be using. Keep reading for my how-to tips on installation and taking your ClutchIt with you. 

IMG_7852.JPG

Clutchit assembly and installation.

With the magnetic mount sitting on the table I attached the large magnet to a door and added a smaller magnet to the back of my phone case. In essence that’s all you have to do BUT...I wasn’t a fan of having to use the large magnet in one location.  The large red magnet is considered your base and is extremely difficult to remove once installed. Place it in an area you will be using the mount frequently. 

Once you install it, that’s it. Be very careful and intentional about where you want to install the large magnet. You only get one per order. Mine is still in the bathroom for my makeup tutorials. 

Clutchit use

The important thing to remember is the mount is magnetic and will attach to anything metal! I have walked around with my Clutchit and used it on everything metal.  

The smaller magnet on the back of your phone case will attach to the phone mount.

IMG_7853.JPG

 

Catawba Brewery provided the perfect metal table for my Clutchit phone mount. 

The other end of the ClutchIt phone mount attaches to metal and can be maneuvered to capture photos and video in landscape or portrait mode.

Once your phone is securely in place, set your timer or use your remote to start capturing the moments. Group photos, selfies, videos, and portraits can be done with ease.

If you’re like me and don’t like being restricted to one area this mount will set you free.

Mentioning being set free, I will quickly discuss how easy it is to detach the mount and carry it with you.

To detach it from the mount simply turn your phone or tablet 45 degrees and your Clutchit is mobile again  I take mine from the bathroom mirror and stash it in my purse to be used at events, shoots and filming.

 Clutchit rating

Clutchit is #EverydayRunwayApproved!

Clutchit can be mounted anywhere; in your car using the large magnet and Clutchit car vent, at home or out and about attaching to other metal objects. As long as it’s metal and the base fits, it will Clutchit!

Although it is a tad bit heavier than my tripod and most phone mounts I am giving Cluthit the stamp of approval.  It’s heavier because it is made from sturdy products and materials. 

Now here’s your chance to ditch the selfie stick and mount up with Clutchit. Click below to get your Clutchit magnetic mount and start your photography and video journaling.  Remember the mount works with phones and tablets, can be used to hold your keys and so much more!

This Rejuva Beauty Product Has Me Blushing - In Love With Cranfusion

As a model and influencer in the fashion industry, one of my challenges is to find products my face will love as much as I do. As an everyday woman of color with sensitive skin, the challenge increases. I am always praying products do not result in dermatitis (cause breakouts), deliver high-end results and are budget friendly. 

When Rejuva Minerals contacted me to try their clean products, I was happy to test them out. I was looking for a great product for my sensitive skin, budget-friendly, and high performing.  A week later I can happily report I am in love and have added Cranfusion to my daily routine. 

Here's why I'm in love with Rejuva Minerals Baked Blush.

Love at first sight!

IMG_6601.JPG

My blush arrived in time for me to showcase it for a fashion event I was attending.  The product packaging raised my anticipation of how Cranfusion would look once out of the box.  When I took it out of the package, I wasn't disappointed.  The colors were exactly as described, a beautiful kaleidoscope of coral and pink colors perfect for complimenting my skin tone and creating a summer glow.

Love at first touch!

Rejuva delivers a smooth, velvet-like product. With a quick swipe of my fingertips across the top of the compact, the highly pigmented colors transferred easily.  Lightweight and powerful!

Love at first application!

Knowing how smooth the baked blush was, I applied it freely and hoped it would last at least four hours.  Six hours in my look was still flawless and I didn’t want to wash it away.

The petite blush brush accompanying my Cranfusion was perfect for applying the product to the apples of my cheeks.  I was able to add the perfect amount of color, with the least amount of work and it lasted all evening. 

IMG_6600.JPG

Seven days and four events later I am still loving Cranfusion! My cheeks are the perfect sun kissed coral color and free from any breakouts! It has become my product of choice!

Love at checkout!
