GENAISSSANCE ALL THE WAY

This is certainly a cream that’s worth the investment. Genaissance de La Mer. The collection takes the energies of the sea and fast-forwards your skin’s renewal process. My favorite product from the collection? The Eye and Expression cream. Our bodies’ most expressive features are also the most delicate and need the most love. This cream can soften and smooth these fine lines around the eyes and around the mouth. I’m taking little steps to keep my skin as smooth as possible even through the squints and laughs – some of the best parts of life.

ONE DAY. ONE FOUNDATION.

You may remember seeing some of these images on my Instagram. I loved this story so much, I had to share it in detail for you here. I had a full day in Laura Mercier’s Ultra Flawless Fusion foundation, testing out what made it so unique and innovative. I was always a girl who only wore concealer on my T-Zone…because who wants to look like they’re wearing a lot of makeup? I found it super lightweight, extra smooth, and easy to use. I had just finished my first bottle of this magical potion-of-a-foundation yesterday, reminding me that it was time to officially NATALIE OFF DUTY it. I have to admit, I’m hooked. Super lightweight for day, yet still gives me a perfected look that has a strong amount of coverage to use on set. Obviously flawless skin starts with amazing skincare and a healthy diet…the secret to any real glow. It’s a lot of work! I started making fresh green juices at home in the mornings, investing in regular facials every month, and finally spending those extra minutes in the steam room post-workout. All of these little things have helped me achieve my skin goals. I try not to rely too much on foundation, but this one blends in so perfectly and lightly that it doesn’t feel or look like you’re wearing anything. It’s certainly time for you to try it. I went from 8 AM pulling looks for a shoot, to 10 AM emails and conference calls, to being out until 6 PM on the run in Manhattan taking appointments. Like most days, I’m back-to-back and keep my beauty routine at it’s minimum. The foundation lasts up to 15 hours! I didn’t reapply once, and that’s exactly how I like to go about my manic Monday.

WHY I EMBRACE CHANGE | HERBAL ESSENCES

I am so excited to partner with Herbal Essences for their Embrace Change campaign where women celebrate how change, big or small, can be healthy and liberating. How something as simple as your hairstyle or haircut can inspire a new chapter in your life. How confidence shines through when you overcome fear. Fearless of embracing imperfections. Fearless in tackling obstacles. Fearless in taking that jump and making an important move in your life. When it comes down to it, when I look my best, I feel my best. When I feel my best, I am unstoppable.

Throughout my life and career, I’ve dealt with so many changes. From being thrown into the modeling world at 15, to moving to NYC on my own without knowing anybody. All I had was a one suitcase, a strong work ethic, focus, and most importantly, a lot of courage. With this early independence, I learned quickly that I had to remain confident and positive…even when the challenges of moving to a new city comes your way. It’s about finding your support system, a good group of friends, and a lot of self motivation. Rather than fitting in, I longed to stand out. New York City was that place for me.

ELLE SEPTEMBER ISSUE 2017

Another amazing shoot accomplished. I’m so excited to be inside the latest ELLE September 2017 Issue for my partnership with TRESemmé. This fall I’m all about big, big hair. I want my hair to feel weightless, with loads of movement. This amazing rock n’ roll look was created by hairstylist, John D on set right here in NYC. The funny thing is John D. did my hair on location at one of my very first photoshoots in LA…over 10 years ago! I was such a baby. Time really flies when you’re having fun. And we haven’t seen each other since… and look at us now….TRESemmé bringing us together for another epic photoshoot. The world just gets smaller and smaller. My hair definitely needed his magic touch. See how easy it is to recreate this look.
