I just wanted to tell you all I had so much fun at QVC last Friday presenting my Glow-n-Behold Collection (which included three brand new, worldwide products launches!). I also brought other brand new products and technologies that I am so proud of, and I hope all of my GGs love them.
Here I am with Sharon Faetsch holding my brand NEW Lip Pops Lush Waterproof Lip Glosses. Sharon is holding my brand NEW Take Cover Anti-Aging Foundation with SPF 20. We also showed viewers my brand NEW WOW Factor Mascara!
Me and Jane Treacy with my Glow-n-Behold Collection after my QVC US TSV last Friday! We had such a blast.
Thank you to EVERYONE who joined me throughout the day on QVC last Friday. I am always so happy and humbled when you are able to tune in and connect with me on my Facebook and Twitter, sharing your wonderful thoughts and comments. I’ll be back on QVC US June 25th-26th, girlfriends. As always, I hope you'll be joining me.

Photos are priceless, and you never realize how much you truly treasure them until you take the time to look through your photo albums. I found this photo of me (when I was four years old!) and my mother, and I was filled with so many wonderful emotions.
Me with my mom when I was 4 years old
Seeing the joy in my mother’s eyes while I held my newborn almost twelve years ago is a moment and a memory I will treasure always. I simply don’t know how to describe the pure joy of being a mother myself.
My mother with me and Daniel as a baby
There’s never a day I’m not mindful of how lucky I am to have my mother in my life. For those of you who are fortunate to still have your mothers, or even that special someone who has been like a mom to you, please know you are truly blessed. And for those who have lost your mothers or the person in your life who was like a mother to you, you’re in my thoughts and in my heart. Since my father passed away, I know how hard it is so lose someone you love, and my heart goes out to you.
I think Mother’s Day is not only about mothers, but about women everywhere! Women should be celebrated and applauded (all the time!) because we are all caregivers at some point or another, whether to children, elderly or even our dearest friends.
Take a moment to pat yourself on the back this Mother’s Day or even buy yourself a gift because you deserve it, girlfriends.
Happy Mother’s Day to all of the amazing women out there. Enjoy your day!

Many of you have been asking me on Facebook and Twitter what products are best to use to achieve the “matte look.” I think this is a great look, and with the right products and application techniques, you can create a truly flawless finish.
Here are some products that I recommend using:
Welcome Matte® Skin Enhancer
This amazing gel-based liquid keeps skin looking fresh, clean and shine-free, all day long. Apply to areas on your face with high shine or visibly large pores. You can even apply this throughout the day on top of your makeup.
Matte Maker Invisible Oil Blotting Powder
Suitable for all skin types, my invisible Oil Blotting Powder reduces shine, makes pores appear smaller and creates the perfect smooth matte finish.
Shimmer Down® Reduce Sparkle and Shine for Face and Eyes
This is perfect for my girls who love sparkle, but want to switch their look up every now and then (it’s like doubling your makeup collection without spending a lot!). Transform any of your favorite sparkly eyeshadows, blushes and more into new, (gorgeous!) soft matte powders. This product is also suitable for all skin tones, and won’t change the color of anything it mattifies. You can also apply Shimmer Down® over areas you’d like to de-shine.
Also, all of my Sugar Free products are designed to deliver a matte texture. Add one (or more!) of these products to your makeup routine:
Sugar Free Blush-n-Brighten
I love how this matte baked blush brightens your face and enhances your cheekbones, minus the shimmer. My Sugar Free Blush-n-Brighten is a blush that works for everyone, thanks to swirls of classic, neutral cheek colors that play up every skin tone. Simply apply the blush on the apples of your cheeks, and blend towards the hairline.
QUICK PIC HOW-TO:
Sugar Free Marble Matte Baked Eyeshadow Duo
My Sugar Free Matte Baked Eyeshadow makes every eye color pop! This duo is a perfect pairing of classic neutrals, with shades that can be worn together or on their own.

I hope I’ve answered your mattifying questions, girls! Please connect with me anytime on Facebook and Twitter with any other questions or comments you may have. I am always here to help.

Every year, I look forward to the end of December when my son Daniel is off from school and we get much needed down time. This year, we chose to get away to Dominican Republic for some relaxing, quality time together. There were so many kids Daniel’s age and he had a ball making lots of new friends. It was perfect because it gave me the time to catch up on a lot of reading. We had such a wonderful week and I still wish I was back in the warm weather.
It occurred to me as I was getting ready every day, that there were a few items that I kept reaching for. These are the same items I must have if I’m going on an overnight to QVC or long extended trips like this one. I thought I’d share them with you, as I love each item very much:
- Floxite 10X/1X Lighted Dual Mirror Compact in Pink – this is my new must have that I take with me everywhere I go. The magnified mirror is perfect when applying makeup. It is convenient and portable which makes it the perfect companion to take with you on a trip
- Dr. Denese’s Hydro Shield – the sun tends to leave skin dry and can take away the moisture in your face. This luscious cream makes my skin feel rehydrated. It also reduces fine lines and wrinkles which is an added plus.
- Philosophy Vanilla Birthday Cake Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath – Being able to carry light was great and I have Philosophy to thank. Instead of carrying multiple items, I was able to use their all-in-one shampoo, shower gel and bubble bath for Daniel and I.
- Kiehl’s Crème de Corps Body Lotion – this is the ultimate Must-Have if your skin is dying of thirst. The lotion is so lightweight yet keeps my skin extremely moisturized. I suggest anyone who is suffering from the cold, dry months to pack this in their arsenal.
I was very fortunate to carve out time to go on vacation with Daniel. It left me feeling rested and rejuvenated for my All Stars Today Special Value on QVC. In presenting this special collection to you, it was my special way of saying “Thank You” for making these items award-winning customer favorites. Thanks to all who tuned in and brought in the New Year with me. It was a very special day for me and I’ve included some photos that showed you the fun we had. I can’t wait to see your comments on the QVC Forums and on my Facebook and Twitter pages.
