    Thanks for this video. It is very helpful to see how you achieve your perfect canvas. You look wonderful. I love the curly, lashy look on you. Now I need to ask about your night time routine. Can I ask for a video of it?

    Very beautiful and fresh…. the glowing Cali look! Did you actually use 33 products?

      Thanks, Lily!!!

      I did not…some of the products were mentioned as alternatives in my routine but they were not used.

    hi BP!
    the Hourglass palette has a beautiful finish! so velvety on you.
    i've been loving the Revive Lip Treatment in the morning thanks to you! i haven't noticed you mentioning it lately… so maybe it is not as much of a favorite as other products for you. it is AMAZING for my lips. i just love it. i use the ByTerry at night.
    loved this video, especially your descriptions of the way you rush in the mornings and apply make up in the car. i audibly chuckled 🙂
    would love a short video or post of your updated nighttime routine over the next month or so! (just noticed someone else had the same request!! great minds think alike 🙂 )
    xoxo SJ

      Hi SJ!

      Good to hear from you. Thanks for your kind words. I do indeed still use the ReVive lip treatment on a regular basis…I somehow overlooked it in this video, however. It is still one of my favorite lipstick bases and I am thrilled that you are loving it.

      Night time routine request duly noted ; ) I will make it a priority!

      xoxo and hope your week is going well,

    Thanks for the video. Now I really want to try the facial treatment essence so that may be my splurge purchase. I found a trial size for $26 (30 ml) on Amazon so I might start with that. Also love the hourglass palette – it's on my list! Agree that a night time routine would be helpful to see since that must have something to do with why your skin looks so great.

      Hi Amy,

      Happy to share it ; ) Ahh…I cannot recommend the Facial Treatment Essence enough! It has truly become a staple in my routine. Thanks for your sweet comment!

    The Hourglass Palette is so pretty but they lost me at matte shades. If it was all shimmers and ONE matte, maybe, but too many mattes for my money.

      Hi Ame,

      Matte shades aren't for everone…that being said, I love it for a change up to my typical satins and shimmers ; )

    Interesting to see your take on the Hourglass palette, since it has received decidedly mixed reviews all about the beauty blogs, it seems. You certainly make it very appealing with the striking look you created. Did you have any issues with it being too powdery as some have had?

      Thanks, Robyn…when it comes to makeup, I am a firm believer in "to each his/her own." That being said, I love the palette (super soft and velvety, great monochromatic effect), probably for a lot of the reasons that others don't…if you use a lighter hand with a brush, you get just enough product for a lovely application.

    Great video! Glad to see in not the only 1 rushing in the a.m and sometimes applying in the car! Your bare skin looks amazing. I agree with the others….a night skincare routine video wld be great! 🙂

      Thank you, Lynn…yes, car makeup appliers unite!!! ; )
