FALL WEEKEND GETAWAY MUST-HAVES

fall-getaway

Over the weekend I took some time to head up to Napa for my friend Ashley’s wedding. I was reunited with my college girlfriends to celebrate another beautiful union, and luckily it was at one of the most beautiful destinations in California.

Since this was a weekend road trip, I definitely didn’t pack too much… Just the essentials! Normally I wouldn’t take much makeup with me for a mini vacation, but since it was a wedding, I needed a few must-haves to beautify myself and be camera-ready.

MAKE UP FOR EVER FAVES

MUFE

Make Up For Ever has always been one of my go-to brands for makeup. It all started with the Make Up For Ever HD Foundation, which is still my favorite foundation to this day. But I hadn’t tried very many colors from MUFE… Until now!

I just got a batch of products from Make Up For Ever, including some colors and some flawless face picks. As expected, many of these turned out to be new favorites of mine, including the Artist Shadows, which I’ll be using in a tutorial very soon because they’re spectacular!

LIGHT, HEAT, AND ENERGY

What am I talking about?? A brand new skin clearing, tightening, and rejuvenating treatment called the Mistral LHE. Until June 2015, Mistral LHE is exclusively available at the Chuan Spa at the Langham Huntington Hotel in Pasadena, CA. I had the pleasure of visiting three times, (I have three more sessions to go!) and so far I’ve tried all of the treatments: Hair removal, acne clearance, skin rejuvenation, and skin tightening. (My favorite!)

When you walk into Chuan Spa, you can expect top notch service and relaxation as you slip into your robe and take in the calming aura. Though the Mistral LHE is a light and heat treatment, (a handheld device connected to a larger machine shoots the heat into your skin) you still get the usual facial treatment, including cleansing, a gentle scrub, and a copper healing mask after the heat.
