My Vh1 Beauty Segment: Trick or Treatment

Talk about a dream come true! Check me out doing my thing on Vh1 with my girl Carrie Keagan and my beautiful sisters as my models: Rebecca Pate and Maria Blaich!

How to look bright eyed...
My Wakeup Makeup Trick is to use an Inner Rim Brightener by Tarte Cosmetics to line the inner rim of the lower lash! The Treatment I recommend is the anti-puff roller ball eye cream by Garnier to de-puff and hydrate!

How to get a radiant complexion...
My favorite Trick is to use a gel highlighter by Becca Cosmetics- my absolute favorite! The Treatment: a Pumpkin Facial you can make at home!

How to achieve Va-Va-Voom Hair...
The Trick: A high powered texturizing spray by Oribe called Dry Texturizing Spray and the Treatment: Schwarzkopf's Blonde Me Intense Treatment.

Watch the clip to get more details on each Trick or Treatment!

Thank you Vh1 Big Morning Buzz Live for this incredible opportunity! I just love being able to share my passion for beauty and makeup with the world. I especially love being able to add an inner beauty tip into my segment, because that's why I do what I do: to inspire genuine beauty, starting within the heart of a woman.

Enjoy the segment and of course, feel free to pass this along to all the makeup mavens in your life!

Here are some pictures from set!

I'd love to hear from ya!
Love & Blessings, Jessica

Kevyn Aucoin, His Legacy lives on...

Using Creamy Glow in Pravella on Carrie Keagan of VH1

If you're a makeup artist or just always dreamed of being one, chances are you have one (or ALL!) of his genius makeup books... but do you have his beauty products? If the answer is no, you should take a field trip to your local Sephora or select department stores and change that. Seriously, I'm loving the Celestial Bronzing Veil in Tropical Days and Nights, The Creamy Glow in Pravella (but all colors are worth getting!) and of course the Sensual Concealer... yes, even foundation can be sexy!

Thank you Kevyn Aucoin for being an inspirational artist and for being brave enough to chase your dreams and pave the way for other artists in pursuit of their bliss. His legacy and exquisite work live on as his beauty brand continues to inspire and equip makeup mavens around the world.

Thank you to Kaci and Viviana at Kevyn Aucoin Beauty for such a generous gift! I am now a forever fan... the products are luxurious, great pigment & staying power... not to mention my favorite color is red, so I'm in love with the luxe packaging!
