Bundle of Questions

How do you clean your makeup brushes and keep them bacteria free?
I clean my brushes with brush shampoo (either by ELF or by Sephora). These are anti bacterial shampoos so it kills all the germs and removes makeup and oils. I clean my eye shadow brushes once to twice a week, and my face brushes every time before I use them. I’m a clean freak when it comes to my face so I put in the extra time to make sure they're squeaky clean. 

Do you drink coffee? 
I had a coffee phase a few years ago but it started making me feel jittery, so now I drink tea instead. Green tea is my fav!

Why don't you wear makeup everyday?
On a daily basis, I wear a light powder foundation, eyebrow shadow, mascara and a hint of blush. I avoid liquid as much as I can to allow my skin to breath. I accept that my natural skin tone is not 100% even and don't worry about it too much :)

Do you model?
I am not a professional model by any means but I would love to do some real modeling in the future.

You look like you have perfect skin. What do you do to keep it clear?
My skin is a nightmare to take care of, I literally have to treat it like my little baby. I am so careful with it because it breaks out very easily and is sensitive to a lot of ingredients. I have two videos on skin care and the products I use but then again, skin care varies from person to person. You need to get to know your skin and know what works best for you by trial and error. I do have two natural face masks that work for everyone though. One is pure honey and the other is sea salt and water. Both work amazingly! Drinking lots of water & eating the right food is also important.

How do you get away with only washing your hair twice a week since you exercise regularly?  
If my hair is feeling a little sweaty from a workout, I don't hold back from rinsing it with water when I take a shower. I should say, I only shampoo my hair twice a week! :) Shampoo can really strip your hair, so that's why I only use it twice a week. 

Have you ever been to California? If so what part?
YES to LA and loved it! The weather there is too amazing. I can definitely see myself living there in the future.

What is your favorite blush & bronzer? 
I have a few favorites but right now my fav has been "Sweet & Spicy" by Hard Candy. Its multi-tonal so it looks really natural and gorgeous. I haven't found my HG bronzer yet, but I use the NYC sunny bronzer to contour which works well.  

What did you love most about living in Geneva?
I LOVE Geneva so much! Its probably one of the most beautiful places in the world, especially during the summer. My family lives there so that's probably my first favorite thing :) It's so small and cute, totally different from where I live now. Although I miss it sometimes, I'm very happy living in NY :)

I want thicker & longer hair. Any advice??
If you want strong hair, learning how to take care of it is really important. I have two videos on this topic, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dT9oHXk582U and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vKMUPGX9zhE They should help :)
