I’ve been on the hunt for a new flat iron for awhile. I researched for months and since I had fallen in love with the Bespoke Labs Featherweight Dryer, I decided to give the Medium Duality Iron a try. I couldn’t be happier with my decision. I’ve been straightening my curly hair for the past decade, so it’s essential that I switched to an iron that was less damaging on my tresses. T3’s patented Tourmaline technology seals in the cuticle and locks in hair's own natural moisture.. It cuts my straightening time in half and I can control the heat setting. Plus, if I feel like adding a sexy wave or flip, this iron can do that too. I'm in love. Truly, madly, deeply in love. Available at Sephora.

For Isla's face, I used mark Face Xpert in Natural, applying it with the mark foundation brush. Then, I applied mark Glow Xpert Face Shimmer in Candle Glo, above her cheekbones, using the mark foundation brush. I set her foundation with mark Powder Buff in Natural using the mark powder brush. After Isla's foundation, I apply mark Bronzing Powder in Bronze, using the mark blush/bronzer brush, to her forehead, cheeks and chin. For Isla's cheeks, I dusted mark Good Glowing blush in Sun Love Glo, using the mark blush/bronzer brush, to the apple of her cheeks. For Isla's eyes, I used I-Mark eyeshadow in Corset, applying it with the mark eyeliner brush. I smudged Corset along the top and bottom lashes, staying very close to the lashline. Then, I applied mark Get in Line liquid eyeliner, and lined the top and bottom of her lashline, connecting the two lines and winging it upwards. To finish the eyes, I applied two coats of mark Lash Splash in Black. For Isla's lips, I used mark Pro Gloss in Swell.

Today, I did Selena's makeup for the Women in Film Awards. She's so sweet and she's a Cancer just like me & Shannon!!! Here's what I used to get her look: First, I applied Get a Tint in Buff/Natural using the mark foundation brush. I used Good Riddance in Light/Medium under her eyes and around her nose. Then, I set the base with Matte-nificent in Natural Buff using the mark powder brush. For the cheeks, I brushed Good Glowing Mosaic blush in Chica ,to the apples using the mark blush/bronzer brush. On the eyes, I lined the top of her lashes with Eyemarker pencil in Jet and smudged it using the mark eyeliner brush. Then, I swept a wash of I-mark in Minx on her eyelid(from the lashline to the crease)using the mark angle contour eyeshadow brush. Also, I used Jet to gently line the bottom lashline. I finished the eyes with two coats of Lash Splash in Black. On the lips, I used Glow Baby Glow gloss in Girly Girl. All products are available at www.meetmark.com

My main gripe when I do my makeup is that my skin never looks even. (Only when I am lucky enough for Mai to do it for me does it look flawless.) While Mai can conceal the redness on my cheeks effortlessly, for me this is no small feat. I have tried green-hued primers to counteract my redness, and I have hated them all. So at the recommendation of my friend—the lovely makeup artist Amy Chance—who raved about Make Up For Ever’s new HD line, I checked out their HD Microperfecting Primer in Green. I’m loving it. Not only does it glide on smooth, it moisturizes my dry skin and completely evens out my skintone. Seriously, every time I wear it under my Armani Luminous Silk foundation, someone complements me on my skin. Any product that gives me great-looking skin is one I’m not willing to live without. And while I’m busy swooning all over this primer, Mai is really digging the HD Microfinish Translucent Powder. She likes it because it is finely milled and leaves the skin very matte without looking too cakey. She says it's perfect for touch-ups! Available at www.sephora.com
