Hey loves, how was your weekend? Mine was great, went to IMATS, saw two of my fave youtube gurus and did a few other things, but we'll get into that later on in the post, for now let's talk beauty. Today in NYC, it's expected to hit 90 degrees. That's crazy (and a little scary, Global Warming!). Now when it's this hot, I always wear a primer. Primers ensure that your makeup stays on all day and doesn't seep into your pores, making you look a hot splotchy mess. I've been using this primer for a minute and I'm shocked I haven't reviewed it yet. It's Too Faced Primed & Poreless SPF 20 with Bronze Tint. This is one of my fave primers for a few reasons. 1) it contains SPF 20 (not many primers contain spf) 2) not only does it act as a primer, but it also leaves your skin with a very pretty medium bronze tint. Hello self tanner and primer in one!!!

3) It ensures that my makeup stays on all day. 4) It controls oil pretty well. I get a good six hours of wear with this before I need to use my oil blotting sheets. When I apply this, along with my tinted moisturizer, my skin looks almost glowing. It's a beautiful combination and my skin feels like silk when I use this and my makeup seems to apply more evenly. I love this stuff. One of my fave primers.

Anyway, how was your weekend. On Saturday I headed over to IMATS. I'm a huge fan of Julie G youtube guru (over 350,000 subscribers and fellow Latina). I wanted to talk to her about some projects I'm working on that I'd like to involve her in, and I was so impressed by how humble she was. First of all, I met her like two years ago, and she still remembered meeting me. She was also incredibly gracious to all of her supporters. She has a new nail polish line out and the colors are so gorgeous.
She deserves all of her success. I then stopped and saw that Kandee Johnson was speaking. She's another youtuber (over 900,000 subscribers) that I like but unfortunately, I couldn't stay to meet her. However, i heard her speech and she is so inspirational. I love her message of believing in yourself. Anyway, I bought a few products at IMATS, but I was so tired. I fell asleep on the subway heading home. When it was my stop, I woke up from my deep sleep and ran out of the train forgetting that I had left my bag of products next to me. By the time I remembered, the train had closed it's doors, and it was already moving. The last thing I saw was the woman that had been sitting next to me going through the bag. Oh well, I hope she enjoys the products. (Never cry over anything you can't control.). But, I had gotten some JulieG polishes, and a brush.
Mr. Milly and I went out alone for a stroll in the village to pick up some artwork for his office. He saw this and loved it.
All in all a fun weekend. How was your weekend. Did you guys do anything fun?
